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

Great place to stay with kids!

  • 5 of 5

The condo itself was very clean and nicely furnished. It even had a kids table. The complex's three pools were a big hit. We spent a lot of time in the heated pool. Elevators and luggage carts made it very easy to get in and out. It was nicely located near the Seawall, close to Moody Gardens. The owner was very accommodating when we needed a late check-out.

Wonderful family spring break vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family (2 adults, 3 older children) loved staying on this property! There was plenty of space for us all, and it was so nice to have a full "home" to relax in during our vacation. Everything in the condo was clean and well kept, and there were many amenities in the kitchen and bath left for guest use. The large pool was our favorite, and was very clean and always had lots of chairs available. We also visited the 2 other smaller pools, which were unique and fun as well. Around the pool are charcoal grills that we used one night which was great. Parking was easy and plentiful. We even used the laundry (coin machines on each level) once which was helpful. This location is at the end of the main 'strip', but we were ok with that, and even walked to the mini golf (excellent course!) and movie theater nearby. Would have liked to been able to walk to beach access, but our kids liked the pool so much that it wasn't a big problem. Above all, the responsiveness and attention of the owners was outstanding! We actually made a mistake in our booking and arrived before our scheduled time. Dave was able to get us (5 weary travelers with tons of luggage!)--within minutes!!--down the hall into another condo he had for our missing night. It saved us!! He went above and beyond to make sure we were ok! Our kids are already asking to go back to Galveston! :)

Relaxing Get-A-Way

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from a 5 day stay at Dave's "OceanLoversView" condo on Galveston Island and it was just the break we needed from a cold, rainy, winter. From the onset Dave was great to work with; always prompt and good natured. The property itself is well maintained with beautiful grounds and areas for outdoor cooking and dining in addition to the three pools. As is the case in almost all resorts on the Sea Wall., the property is across the street from the Gulf though the unit we stayed in was set far enough back to where road noise wasn't an issue. The beach in front of the resort is made up of concrete blocks requiring a drive or walk of approximately 30 minutes to a sandy beach. The condo we stayed in has a nice though partially obstructed view of the Gulf from a spacious balcony that runs the length of the condo with lots of seating and tables for dining. The kitchen is large and well stocked and opens out to the living space. One bedroom facing the Gulf has full size king bed, the second bedroom is good size with ample storage space but offers no view or outside lighting. The bathroom is set up "jack and jill" style with separate sink and toilet with a shared tub/shower in between. The two bunk beds in the hallway are suitable for small children. We appreciated that the resort is on the quieter west end of the island but that means a drive to most restaurants, bars, and attractions on the Sea Wall. ("Jimmy's On The Pier" is one restaurant within a short walk and worth a visit). All in all we found this condo to be very comfortable and I'd highly recommend it as a base to explore all the many things to do in and around Galveston. As a final, parting, side note; the only unexpected experience during our stay was our encounters with the local Crackle birds. Considered as "Texas's Worst Bird", they squawk, perch, preen, and swoop around the pools. Be forewarned not to put anything under a tree or post where Crackle might be perched or suffer the consequences!
