About the property

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.'

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!

Perfect condo for couples getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our weekend at the condo so very much! The condo had everything plus some with an amazing balcony and view of the beach! My favorite part of my stay was the jetted tub and super comfy king size bed! For anyone reading reviews trying to choose a condo, let me just say that the tub alone is enough to go ahead and book now! It’s huge and has rainwater showerhwad, handheld shower head, and wall jets. The bed is big and so comfortable. I’ve stayed at many Home Away rentals but hands down Dave was the most attentive and available owner I’ve ever dealt with. He could not have been any more hospitable. Truly a pleasure to rent from him and we are definitely looking forward to staying again. Great location too...close to all that Galveston Island has to offer. Big “thank you” to Dave for making our weekend getaway perfect!

Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I just want to say sorry to Dave for taking a while to write this.

Now to the review...this condo is perfect for alone time or couples, or even if you have children. I absolutely LOVED it. The sound of the ocean, the beautiful view, even if it was stormy, it was just nice being there. It was very clean, homey. Kitchen was well equipped. Bed sleeps very good!! I’m looking forward to staying there again!!! And Dave was very helpful. Thank you Dave
