About Lyn/Owner & Manager

Conrad and I met in Paris, France and always had a passion for travel and experiencing new places and people. Although we live and work in Indiana, we love to travel with our two girls, when possible. As they have gotten older, getting away has been more difficult so we decided to 'share' our home with other families who love to 'get-away' too!

Lyn/Owner & Manager purchased this condo in 2006

Why Lyn/Owner & Manager chose Texas Gulf Coast

Ocean Grove is SO convenient to the beaches, the night life, historic sightseeing and family activities, and it's NOT 'in the middle of it all'! There were NO hassles getting around, making it seem like the perfect location. It's very quiet/private - - you feel like you are at home instead of in the middle of all the 'hub-bub' of prime vacation season. You are only 5 minutes from any of it - - when you want it - - and can escape to peace and quiet when you don't!

What makes this condo unique

When we decided to share the condo with guests, we looked back on our experience when renting condos from rental agencies and even individuals. What became clear is that most people don't worry about the 'details' that can make the stay truly special. In deciding how to equip our home, we looked at it from the perspective of 'what would WE want if we were staying here?' That lead to tons of extra amenities and special surprises that truly are not common among vacation rentals. We hope you will enjoy the thought we have put into making this the most unique, hassle-free vacation experience you will ever have!

Guestbook comments from the manager

I just wanted to drop you a line to say that your condo was beautiful and we were constantly amazed at all the provisions you had made for us. As I noted in your guest book, you really have such good, classy taste and you must spend a lot of time thinking of things your guests might need--because you thought of everything. Obviously you delight in being a gracious host. A five star hotel could not have done better. I rated your condo 10 stars in your guest book.



Thanks again for a wonderful stay and such beautiful accommodations. Al & Terri

Beautiful property with a great view!

  • 4 of 5

This unit is wonderful, very cozy with lots of amenities. Has a great view and location! One thing we wish we'd known beforehand is we could not set the thermostat below 74° during peak season. The unit sleeps 8 & we had 7 in our party. Some of us were ok in 76° (because the AC set at 74° doesn't keep up with the heat outside so the temp inside could go no lower than 76°) but most of us were too hot. Also- we are asked to put away garbage, but only one bag was provided to us for 7 people...so of course we had plenty of garbage. So you may want to bring extra! If you're using both available parking spots, one of them is quite a walk. There are no carts for transport of luggage and the elevators do not have AC. The "extensive spice collection" is actually not extensive at all, it is really just the basics. But we are also very experienced cooks, so maybe we're used to something different. If you want something specific or unique, bring it yourself. Also- the lock on the door is set and timed to coincide with the check in times and departure times. We could check in no earlier than 4 pm and out no later than 11 am. But the lock tried to lock us out of the unit at 10 am. Maybe it just needs to "spring forward". Thankfully we were still in the unit packing up so we could let our family in, but it would have been a real pain if we'd been locked out from our belongings! These are minor issues however, over all, the property is amazing, pool is great and property was quiet too! Not sure I'd stay again because I like to sleep in a chilly room and I want the check out time to be accurate, but the host and the unit were both wonderful!

Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

The condo had a fully equipped kitchen and was very nicely decorated. The balcony was great for having coffee and watching the ocean. The condo was close to everything, but not in the busiest area. The pool was well maintained and was always inviting. We were a group with a grandmother, 4 adults, an 18 yeat old and an 8 year old. I would definitely stay here again.

We had 4 adults and 4 children. It was very nice with balcony looking to the beach and swimming pool. It was within walking distance of a few places, which we enjoyed very much.

Not Maid Right!

  • 3 of 5

Check in time was set for 3 o'clock and when we arrived at 5 o'clock there was a car parked in our assigned parking spot. We had only printed the one pass because we were not taking 2 cars on our trip. We called the condo owner immediately and was told there was nothing that could be done till the morning because it was Sunday. Then as we entered the condo there was someone in there....the person called out "hello" rudely and did not identify themselves until I said, "I believe check in time was 3 and we are here at 5". The response was, "we are still cleaning," and then something about lunch being late. The two women finished what they were doing and left with a quick apology. I do know this was not the owners fault, but a problem with the service. Still not a good way to start our vacation. Then there are a few amenities that could use a little upgrading: the mattress in the master bedroom was extremely uncomfortable and resulted in no good nights sleep, the kitchen sink drips and has a note that you must turn the handle to an awkward position every time to get it to stop, the sliding glass door was very difficult to open and shut, the plastic shower curtain in master bath had mildew in the corner. Despite these issues we still enjoyed our stay, however would not recommend this place, nor will we stay here again.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Lyn, our host, has thought of absolutely everything! The unit had the perfect location, and there was nothing that we wanted for. Bandaid? Check! Every spice needed to cook? Check! Beach towels and suncreen? Yep - that too. We took full advantage of the gym and beautiful pool. The building and grounds are beautifully maintained and even the staff at the condo are long-term and wonderful. We are already looking at dates to come back. I can't recommend this unit or host enough. Thanks for a wonderful week!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay! You are welcome anytime. Also glad you got to experience the many amenities that are not common among rentals. It can save a lot of last minute trips to the grocery store!

Perfectly organized and supplied.

  • 3 of 5

Condo was exquisitely decorated and maintained. Everything we needed to cook was in place. But.....where was the beach? We arrived, changed into our suits, and scampered across the very busy, noisy road to the beach, but there were only rocks. Please include this in your descriptions, we wanted to have beach access.

Owner's Response: I am SO sorry you were not happy with the location of the condo. Under the "Location Type" section, I currently have the following language: Oceanfront: Gorgeous view of the Gulf from the Seawall! Please note that there is no sand beach access from the condo. Beaches locations can be found at www.galveston.com/beachparks. I can also move it in to the general description of the property, but honestly, I've never had anyone who specifically wanted the beach not to ask me about it.... Sorry it was a disappointment for you, but am so glad you enjoyed the condo itself!
