Hi, David

Just returned last night from Galveston and had to let you know what a lovely condo you have. . . there was not a thing we needed that was not there, the decor was so very attractive, location just right - that end of the Island is very good place to be.

We did the ferry to Port Bolivar, Paddle wheeler trip, museum downtown as well as oil rig museum, trip to Penguin Island, old mansions (Moody was favorite), drove further west and ate at Richard's restaurant in Sea Isle on the marina - TWICE. Used the pocket beaches to good advantage. . . kept going to a different spot each day! Weather was tremendous. . . foggy early but burned off by 9 a.m. Sat on seawall and watched the surfers, went out on fishing pier. . . enjoyed eating at The Spot!

Hope to be back, Don and Donna Williams

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dave,



Hi, thank you! Your place was wonderful. Very relaxing, clean, and very quiet. My family loved it. The property was amazing.The pools were refreshing and very spacious. Although they had construction going on we never had issues and most of all never heard a sound. Very pleasant. We have enjoyed the beaches very much. Shopping was great; the seawall was wonderful; and the weather was warm but awesome. Things we did with the children ages 11,16,16,16; we visited Schlitterban Waterpark, went to the GREATEST Cafe' " Rainforest Cafe' " Absolutely amazing. We took a day and rode a few minutes down the road and visited The NASA Space Center in Houston, which the whole family enjoyed very much. Then off to the Kemah BoardWalk all with in a couple of miles from each other. I can say this, we will certainly be back. This was one of the most wonderful getaways we have had. So thank you so much for opening your vacation home to my family and I.



Thank you,

Shirley S & Family

Really enjoyed our stay here

  • 5 of 5

Well kept condo in great condition. There was plenty of room for our family of six to stay here. Dave, the owner, promptly replied to any questions we had for him and gave us some great insight about the surrounding area. Parking was always available and convenient. The view from the condo was wonderful - which includes a view of the Gulf and a lagoon. We spent much of our time out on the large patio taking in the sights and relaxing. We enjoyed swimming in the outdoor pool and in the Gulf - at a nearby Pocket Beach. Fun activities nearby include the fishing pier, mini golf, beaches, and restaurants. We highly recommend staying at this condo!

The great place to stay in Galveston

  • 5 of 5

This was a awesome place!! The owners were so great to work with from the first inquiry to the last day of our stay. The condo was very clean & well stocked of the basics. The location is great, close enough, but not in the busy mix of things. A beautiful few of the Gulf was such a relaxing part of the trip. The pools were beautiful & the grounds well kept.

We will be returning again & we can't wait!!!

Very nice views but disappointing features.

  • 3 of 5

My husband, daughter, her friend and I spent four nights at this condo. The owner of this condo was exceptionally prompt each time I text or emailed. He was very patient with us when we were late sending payment. We had a minor problem in the condo and he was very prompt with helping us resolve the issue. We so appreciated the well stocked kitchen (although no dish towels) and enjoyed the lovely view. However, it was very obvious that the decor and all linens, including draperies, were purchased at Walmart. The condo felt very sterile and we were all disappointed. Even my husband, who, if he had his way, would have running posters throughout our home, mentioned the cheap-like feel of the condo. With the amount of money we paid per night, we expected much more than what we got. The condo needs a new coat of paint, the doors and baseboards needs a good cleaning, the kitchen cabinet door needs to be painted and/or cleaned and the entire unit needs to be improved. The master bedroom is very small and I understand why you put a "dresser" in the closet. But plastic, rolling drawers are not acceptable. Although the balcony is very spacious and the view is nice, it was almost impossible to enjoy it because of the heat - a ceiling fan would certainly help. My family and I still managed to have a great time despite our disappointment in the condo.
