Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We took our three granddaughters (teens & early 20s) for a brief vacation, and we all loved the condo. It was very clean, comfortable and well decorated. Barbara & David were wonderful to work with. I can't thank them enough for finding us a great place to stay on such short notice. My main concern while looking for a place to stay was safety for my granddaughters and cleanliness ~~ and both our condo and the entire Emerald complex definitely met my criteria. I have told Barbara that I'm keeping her phone number and email for our next trip :). No hesitation about recommending this place ~~ Thanks again!

We had an amazing visit. The condo was beautiful and close to all amenities. More amazing than the condo were the owners and their desire to make our vacation special. Barbara went out of her way to help us and I am so grateful for her effort. Not sure when we will be in Galveston again but when/if we are I would stay here without a moments hesitation. My husband and I even talked about retiring to this property :) I highly recommend this condo for the sheer beauty of the property and the owners. Thank you again.

Fun Christmas at Galveston

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time in this condo over Christmas. The website well represented what we found on site, and it was very clean and prepared for our arrival. We enjoyed local attractions in-between wedding and Christmas events to the north of Galveston. There was a large exercise room with lots of equipment, and fun game room and theater to show your own movies on-site. Thanks for the fun time!

This condo was fabulous!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Galveston. We loved the condo-the pictures actually didnt do it justice, it was decorated just beautifully and the amenities were great. The balcony view was great overlooking the pool and the beach. We were in close proximity to everything we needed. Although we had rain everyday we were there, it was nice to have a great place to come back to and relax. The people managing this property were very kind and helpful, assisting us with a few minor details-they were very quick to respond to us. We will recommend this property to our friends and family and look forward to coming back soon!!
