Texas Gulf Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath (Sleeps 6) .

2016 renovations! Our guests loved the condo before, but now we have added all the touches they asked for. New granite counters, new furniture in the living room and on the deck, as well as our signature Flamingo decor. Now we offer an oven as well as stove top burners and a full apartment sized refrigerator. With Galveston's beach revitalization, now there is an expansive beach right across the Seawall! We bought this condo because of its prime Gulf view, its proximity to the quiet pool and its beach access, and mostly because we love the Victorian. We're glad to share it with you when we are not visiting from Houston. Queen sized bed in the one bedroom with a good sized closet, bunk beds in the hall alcove for 2, and a sleeper sofa in the living area for one or two. For your convenience, our Galveston property manager is available just minutes away to take care of any requests or questions you have, so leave all your worries at home. You can cook in the suite or visit one of the great restaurants in Galveston. We love buying shrimp and fish off the docks on Harborside Drive near downtown, and cooking our own feast to enjoy on the deck. All the dishes and utensils are there in the condo to make you feel at home. Within the complex also are two swimming pools, a hot tub, covered parking, tennis courts and barbeque pits. In addition to the new Pleasure Pier amusement park over the water just down the Seawall, there is something going on pretty much every weekend in Galveston. Don't hesitate to book...Galveston is filling up for the summer!

**For the last 4 years, we have been using our own form of processing credit card payments. In those 4 years we have not had any problems or received any complaints in respect to card or identity security. We believe in a more personal booking process in order to develop a closer relationship with our guests. Please call or email our property manager (Cynthia Darwin) to book this vacation rental.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We visited this condo with our 3 year old nephew and used the swimming pool all weekend, We never had any incidents at the pool. We did have them walk and follow the rules. They had a blast and really enjoyed the swimming, as well as walking across the street to the beach at any time and returning easily to the condo. It was a great place to stay to enjoy the water as well as the other Galveston activities.

This was our first time staying here, the condo was very relaxing and welcoming. The view was perfect I was able to see my daughter in the pool while sitting on the balcony. I will be booking again soon for my next stay.

Over the top

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I loved the place, location was a plus and the view excellent. You don't need a vehicle as everything is within walking distance such as two major grocery stores (Wal-Mart and Kroger), Pleasure Pier, lots of restaurants and of course the beach. Hot swimming pool was perfect, especially for the day that was cold. Lots of dishes to use, towels, linens. Property manager and staff were very welcoming and super nice. Planning another trip to same condo soon.

Birthday Weekend

  • 4 of 5

The photos of the property were accurate and reflect the appearance and amenities. Overall the unit is very clean & well kept. The owner of the property was very helpful with answering all questions, there was excellent customer service upon checking in, and having security at the gate entrance was a plus. The Victorian is located on the seawall and the apt. has a balcony that overlook the pool with a view of the beach. I really will recommend this property to friends and relatives not to mention it sleep 7 people comfortably. I really enjoyed our stay.

Excellent Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect! We've stayed at the Victorian before and the location is great. Walk across the street to the beach and food and shopping are very convenient. This unit is perfect (as long as you don't mind flamingo décor)! Plenty of dishes, towels, linens, and even an ironing board with iron and a dvd player. Both the owner and property manager are very nice and easy to work with. We have another trip booked in this condo already at the end of summer and will be back again and again!

Living on Island time!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our stay. We found your place clean, comfortable, and relaxing. We liked the fun decor through-out.

We enjoyed our close proximity to the the Fishing piers and to Moody Gardens. We had a good bowl of gumbo at the Gumbo Bar on Post Office Street.

We would recommend this to our friends!

  • 5 of 5

This unit was very welcoming, relaxing and homey. Greatest is the view overlooking the pool, the Gulf of Mexico with beautiful sunsets and the grounds. We had tons of fun, I highly recommend this unit for anyone, and we will be back for this same unit.

Galveston's new Pleasure Pier amusement park over the water opens this summer, adding to the many activites you'll find to fill your days. Moody Gardens discovery theme park for all ages, Schitterbaun Waterpark, shopping and restaurants on the Strand along with the new Pirates Museum. Miles and miles of open beaches and nature bird watching in the protected marshes. Book a deep sea fishing adventure or walk across the street for assisted pier fishing. And order seafood every day in one of Galveston's many fine restaurants throughout the Island.
