Overview

Galveston Condo Rental Photos and Description

1BR/1BA Sleeps 6, 2 adult size bunks & sleeper sofa

We like to call this our "SeasideVIEW" condo. Enjoy sunset from your private quiet balcony overlooking the gulf and beautiful pool grounds. Then, make memories with your family on beautiful Galveston Island. E-mail from guest, : '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!'

E-mail from guest, (continue): 'We have stayed in condos on Hilton Head Island, Lake Tahoe - yours was the nicest. . . will miss your television. . . guess we will take a trip to our local television sales store! Thanks again for everything. By the way, the rental office was great, too. We arrived on Monday afternoon and went there in case they could rent to us one day early. . . gave us an hour for the housekeepers to finish and we were in. And, the pool is lovely! Hope to be back. . . Don and Donna Williams in Indiana.'

About Dave Ruch

Pam & I live in Denver, but enjoy visiting Galveston with our Grandkids. They love to splash in the shallow beach water. Eliana wants to drive next time with her new learner's permit :-)

Dave Ruch purchased this condo in 2009

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Dave, We had a great stay! The accommodations were great. The kitchen was well equipped. The only addition we could think of was maybe a sponge. We brought some DVD's and watched them on the flat-screen and we loved the surround sound. We especially enjoyed the movies because the hurricane was coming and we couldn't be on the beach as much as we wanted. It was extremely clean (no bugs) and we enjoyed our stay. Thanks, Mike

By the way, the miniature golf course nearby was the best we've ever played on!

The condo was clean and well updated.

  • 5 of 5

The property was well kept and quiet considering it was on the Seawall.

The pool was clean and staff friendly.

The owner, Dave was very thoughtful and thorough with communications about our check in and stay.

Convenient Beach-view Condo

  • 5 of 5

Great, tidy and convenient condo. Nice view of gulf and sunsets from balcony, and fun watching all the activity down around the pools from the top floor. Condo was nice and tidy, clean and ready for us upon arrival. Check-in for the parking pass and pool bracelets was quick and simple. Convenient to the west-end attractions like Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn (about 5 minutes), and the west-end pocket beach parks. You can take Seawall Blvd all the way to East-end if you like, but Stewart Road runs behind the condo and is far quicker and less traffic that route. Galveston Island Brewery is only a few blocks away. 2 adults and 3 teens were a little tight in here, but we were all plenty comfy and the condo itself is well-cared for. We found the 3rd pool (one off by itself on opposite side of building) to be wonderfully peaceful and shady with a nice clean air-conditioned pool bathroom too. Dave was a great host, easily reachable.

Galveston vacation

  • 3 of 5

The location of the condo was great. If I could give advice to the owner I would suggest a good thorough cleaning and lose the 2 tables (coffee and entertainment) in the living room. The condo is quite small and the coffee table is unnecessary and the 2nd table.....an entertainment table I think is just too large for the space. Also, have hangers in the closet and available drawer space for your guests. We hand to go out and purchase hangers and left our other clothes folded in the suitcases. Otherwise the condo is cute and met our needs.

Owner's Response: Hi Billie, Again, thanks for staying with us, and for the feedback. We are always looking for ways to improve. I'm glad you found the condo "cute and met our needs." In over 10 years, I think this is the first time someone "borrowed" all the closet hangers. We recently filled the closet with new hangers. In the future, let us know if anything needs attention and we will promptly address any issues. Respectfully, Dave Ruch

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

Decided on a last minute getaway the same day, the owner was back in touch within minutes, very professional transaction. He checked in on us a couple of times during the weekend via text to make sure everything was OK. Nice clean place with a beach view, comfortable bed, cold A/C. cold fridge, direct tv, great pool etc. Will definitely stay here again.

Lovely place with lots of beautiful outdoor space.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and really appreciated having a clean and updated condo to stay at. The view of the beach is awesome. Loved the pools and bbq grills. Very close drive to the busy part of the beach. But far enough away to have some peace and quiet. Would love to come back some day!
