Guestbook comments from the owner

HIGHLY Recommend this condo!! johnsmom (college station, tx, usa) Review submitted: March 29, 2011 Date of arrival: March 25, 2011 The condo and complex were exactly as described online--and we enjoyed all of it! We are a family of 4, with 2 kids under the ages of 6. They were in awe of the view of the ocean and we ALL enjoyed sitting on the balcony together and watching the coast. The sleeping accommodations were perfect for us. Each of the kids had a separate place to sleep and relax. The kitchen was perfectly adequate--there was a stove, microwave, freezer, and fridge. The location of the condo was GREAT! Just west of where the strip tends to get crowded, and the beach really is right across the street. There was a heated pool right downstairs from the condo that was so fantastic when the wind was a little chilly early in the day. We are already checking our calendars to find time for another trip. I HIGHLY recommend this condo.

There is zero chance I will stay at this property again. The front desk was extremely unhelpful.

The hallways leading to the rooms have a heavy smell of smoke and just was a poorly kept.

Renters beware - this is not the place you have in mind.

Owner's Response: Dear Jack, I am sorry your experience was so horrible. But as stated in my rental agreement I am available 24/7 for any issues and there was no communication to me regarding a problem. Pictures are absolutely accurate I do own 2 condos at the same property maybe this condo was booked when intentions were to book the other they are identical floorpans? Only speculating. We strive to have all guest experience a memorable vacation/getaway and constructive criticism is welcomed.

Great location. Very clean and the owner was pleasent and helpful.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a girls weekend, 5 women in our mid 30s. It was perfect for our needs! The beds were comfortable for the most part. The girl on the bottom bunk said it was not great so she slept on the couch which was comfy. The top bunk girl said it was fine for her. The master bed was comfortable so I was happy. The kitchen was not a full kitchen but good enough. No oven so we got creative with our salmon dinner. The only thing that it lacked was a sharp knife to cut our food with. We would stay there again!

Cozy condo

  • 5 of 5

Great last minute getaway! Booking with owner was easy. She communicated immediately several times. The condo was the perfect size for a couple, nice decor, beautiful bathroom. Great location centrally located to great bars, dining, shopping and the beach is right across the street. , Very specific instructions for check out were most helpful. We will definitely be back to stay here again soon!

Slightly Disappointed

  • 3 of 5

There was flooding in April's unit 2 days before we arrived. We were transferred to another unit. So, please note that this review is not of April's unit. The unit we were given did not have bunk beds so my kids were so disappointed. The refrigerator had mold in it. Luckily I had packed some antibacterial kitchen cleaner and used it to clean up the fridge. The bedroom TV remote did not work. We got a replacement but the one we were given would not turn off or turn on the TV very easily. The remote also had electrical tape holding the batteries in as the cover was missing. When we unfolded the sofa bed food (like chips/crackers) fell out of it. There was only 1 extra pillow in the closet even though the room sleeps 5. I didn't know if that meant people that sleep on the pull out sofa were supposed to use the couch pillows to sleep on. There was 1 blanket in the closet. My son felt cold sleeping on the sofa with just the one blanket. I ended up taking the cover off of the day bed for them to use for the sofa sleeper. My whole family suffers from allergies and asthma so we all had trouble with smell as the spring time allergies have been kicking up. Toward the end of our stay we realized that our room smelled of cigarette smoke. We were not sure it it was coming from someone close by or under us or was there the whole time. We notified the desk at the Victorian so we wouldn't be charged and I do think that they came up to spray some air freshener while we were out. The kids pool was a little too cold for my kiddos as it is not heated and it was in March so we spent time at the heated pool. If you have small kids and want to use that pool, bring flotation devices as it is a deeper pool. Someone had broken a glass in the pool area and one of my kids stepped on a piece of glass at the pool - near the gate. It was nice to have the outdoor shower to get the sand off of our feet before going back to the room. I liked the convenience of having Walmart next door. Overall we did enjoy our stay in Galveston despite the room issues.

Owner's Response: I do wish the review was placed on the proper website. You can move this review to The Victorian Condo where the room was located. Unfortunately I am taking the hit for a 3 star rating when it does not apply to my condo. On top of having complete water damage from another condo and facing long paperwork and renovation ahead I was given a mediocre review on someone else's property! #frustratedowner

Quick Family Getaway.

  • 4 of 5

We decided last minute to take a small vacation at the beach and had to hurry to find a place. We were pleased with the facilities here at the Victorian. Everything was clean and on-site is a nice pool, hot tubs and was perfect for what we were looking for. Of course the beach is but across the street. We had 4 of us on this trip and the room was perfect size for few days. Hope to come back and enjoy it again someday.......THANKS.
