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 manager

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!

Family Getaway during Fall Break

  • 4 of 5

We loved our time at the condo. The kids loved playing in the pools. In late October it's pretty quiet in Galveston and at the condos complex; not too many people around. The condo was a good price and good value. The owners where available for questions, but we didn't need anything from them while we were there. We might be back again next year. Thanks for the great stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Kenton, Yes, I agree, we enjoy visiting Galveston during the quiet October month. I'm glad you had a great stay. Please let us know how we can work harder next time to possibly earn a coveted five star experience. Welcome back to wonderful Colorado weather, but that is soon to change :-) See ya, Dave

Nice stay overall but needs a little attention

  • 3 of 5

Property was in great location. Dave was very helpful and checked on us periodically. Grounds were well manicured. Condo was cute with nice deck view. The floors were old and not very clean. Bathroom baseboards and walls were dusty and sheets on one bed smelled musty. I informed Dave. He seemed very appreciative and said he would give it attention. Overall, it was a nice stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Traci! Yes, I agree, that is a great location. You mentioned "cute", I will tell Pam. She recently added some new decorations and touches. I'm sorry to hear about floor and baseboard, unusual. Our cleaner is pregnant, due next month, and maybe her substitute did not give the normal detail we expect. The issue has been addressed, and it won't happen again. They are using a new professional floor scrubber that should help. Please come back and give us another chance. I appreciate the feedback to help us improve. Respectfully, Dave

Summer Get Away

  • 4 of 5

On the spur of the moment I booked a week in your resort so we could visit all our children and grandchildren. The facility was more than we expected. It was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. We enjoyed the hustle of the Seawall but also had a quiet place to go for the night. I think we will definitely return again.

Owner's Response: Hi Audrey! Yes, please do come back and visit us again. Visiting grand children is so fun, yes? I'm glad you found the condo "very clean". Our cleaner is trying very hard, and I will pass on your encouragement. Next time, I hope we can earn that coveted five star review. Please let me know how we can improve. Best, Dave

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.

Owner's Response: Chisholm, I agree, that location is just the right distance from the Seawall, not too close to hear the traffic, but close enough to enjoy the water view. Thanks for staying with us. Dave

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.

Owner's Response: Yes, I agree, sunsets and the gulf from that balcony are amazing. Our cleaner always appreciates hearing the condo was "clean and tidy." I will tell her. You are always welcome back. -Dave
