This unit is a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom unit with Huge walk-in closets in each. You'll melt into the Master bedroom's Queen bed. But wait, maybe you will also melt into a Queen size bed in the 2nd Master bedroom. We offer pullout sleeper sofa for additional guests. This unit sleeps 6 comfortably. It is a 2nd floor condo.

The Palms at Cove View: This family oriented community, The Palms at Cove View offers a gorgeous pool, private sunbathing deck, clubhouse, and an exercise room. They truly have something for everyone. The Palms at Cove View condominiums are located about 2 blocks off the seawall on the west end.

Our condos are about 3.5 miles from Wal-Mart and Kroger for your grocery shopping needs. If you are looking for a quiet retreat away from the hustle and bustle of Galveston.... Here we are.

Galveston: You will also stay busy during the heat of the day. Galveston offers a wide variety of restaurants, great shopping on the Strand and along the Seawall, the Schlitterbahn Water park, championship golf courses (Moody Gardens), historical tours, and a great movie theaters. The kids will enjoy various putt-putt golf, batting cages, bungee jumping and go-cart tracks.

Relax on the Beach: Our policy is simple: We want you to feel the value you're getting for your vacation dollar and be among our numerous repeat customers, and we want you to tell all of your family and friends about the great vacation you had in a Palms at Cove View property.

Gorgeous home!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean, warm, and looked exactly as described. I enjoyed my stay and everything that the condo had to offer.

Can I move here?!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we walked in, we felt right at home. Our puppies had room to run around and we really liked that there were two separate bedrooms and bathrooms. The pool was amazing (although there was a mean neighbor who was asking us questions about whether or not we lived there,) and the distance from the beach was perfect too. We drove, but there was plenty of free parking by the beach. A few minor things: there was some work needed on the house - a broken floor board, a broken glass in the cabinet, and a few dead cockroaches around the house. There also was not enough toilet paper or paper towels so make sure to bring extra! The Tv needs to be turned up all the way and even then you can hardly hear it. we never did find the grill on the property, but some nice neighbors let us borrow theirs. Overall we felt very comfortable and at home. Besides a few minor things, our stay was great. Would definitely come back!!

GOOD

  • 4 of 5

The weather ( 50 mph winds and heavy rain) didn't help finding our rental. LOL When I finally found the upstairs unit ( already soaked and cold) it was dark at our landing in front of our apartment door. After retrieving the key from the lock, I quickly found out that there was no porch light available as there was in the ground floor apartment.

When we finally got in the apartment, we found out that it was very roomy, clean and with all of the amenities. A/C worked good and apartment was close to the beach.

I would score it 4 1/2 stars. That being said, it needs a porch light. In fact, it would be a nice and warming touch, ( when the porch light situation is rectified) to have someone turn it own, the day of the gust arrival.

Owner's Response: The condo complex is responsible for maintaining the outside lights. Will let them know. That's why I always send a map of the condo complex in my email, sometimes it's hard to find the condo. Sorry about the weather, Galveston has just been hit with increased rainstorms!

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

Ronda was extremely hospitable and allowed us early check in and late check out which made the trip work!! Place was very nice with plenty of parking and close to beach. The only thing which wasn't her fault is I wish the complex had bbq grills. We purchased our own no biggie but would have been nice if there was one at the pool.

Highly suggest this rental.
