"Living in luxury while enjoying a ocean view front."

Left on 05/08/2014 for a stay in May 2014

Arrived early and called Napoleon to get a code to get into the condo early. He responded very quickly and our weekend comfort and relaxation started. The condo was furnished beautiful and very clean. There was two couples so the bedrooms and bathrooms on each side of the main living area worked out great for privacy. The location of the complex and the townhouse was great, so close to everything. The beds were so comfortable. Will definitely contact Napoleon for our next stay there.

"Wonderful stay at the beach"

Left on 08/09/2013 for a stay in March 2013

We live in Germany and visited Galveston for the first time, together with a dear cousin who lives in Houston. She organized the booking with Mr. Napoleon. Thank you both very much for that!

We enjoyed our stay for two nights. We were able to walk along the seawall and it was convenient to all other areas of Galveston. We had everything we needed for our stay. The condo is beautifully furnished. If we make a trip to Galveston again, we will definitely try to stay in this condo.

"Nicely furnished condo in a great location"

Left on 03/14/2013 for a stay in February 2013

My husband and I spent the month of February 2013 in this condo and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was convenient to all of the amenities we needed, i.e., groceries, gasoline, tourist attractions, etc. Napoleon, the owner, was very accommodating and easy to work with and helped make our stay memorable. If we make a trip to Galveston again, we will definitely stay in this condo.

"Wonderful condo!"

Left on 08/02/2012 for a stay in July 2012

This condo was very nice. It was very clean which is always important to me and the main point of whether I would recommend it to anyone or not. The furnishings were very nice and the beds so comfortable. The view from the balcony looked right out at the ocean. It was very close to restaurants and shopping yet quiet and peaceful at night. The owner was very easy to talk to and contact for any questions we may have had. We will definitely stay here again when we come back and would recommend it to anyone planning on visiting Galveston.

"Had a fantastic vacation and the condo was wonderful, everything"

Left on 06/01/2012 for a stay in May 2012

The condo was so suited for our family vacation. Our grandsons,ages 1 & 3 had such a good time in a child friendly and safe place. The condo was so clean. New everything! All the furniture was so comfortable and clean. Wireless internet was very fast. All the Tv's let everyone enjoy their own shows. Bathrooms were decorated so nicely. Wonderful stainless steel kitchen. Pool was fabulous and suitable for young and old to enjoy. It was so easy to enter and unload from the parking area. The owner was so nice and always available for questions either by phone or e-mail. I would highly reccomend this condo to all my friends and hope to stay there again next year.

"Great Galveston Girls Getaway"

Left on 05/02/2012 for a stay in April 2012

Loved the condo! Great for a small group of girlfriends to get away and relax. Enjoyed the balcony and wonderful view of the ocean as well as the pool in the complex. Thought the design and decor of the condo was gorgeous and nicely furnished via typical "seaside kitzch." The complex was nice and quiet, (especially in april after Spring Break and before Summer rush.) It felt like our own private retreat. My girlfriends were very impressed with me for finding this charming place and I definitly plan on staying here my next visit to Galveston, as well as telling my friends to. Thank you again, Napoleon for the great communication and property!

Our stay

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very nice. It was exactly as described. Awesome master bath and everyone opted for the master shower. The owner was very easy to work with and responsive. There was beach in the evening across the street but not in the morning. No big deal. The boys enjoyed the waves even without a beach. Thanks so much for sharing your condo with us.

Close to the beach... Can use some improvements

  • 3 of 5

First off I hate to give this a 3-star rating because the owner is very kind and very prompt in responding to any requests. The condo is very clean and modern inside. It is across the street from the beach and far enough away from the Pleasure Pier area to be somewhat private. The condo staff is very kind and accommodating and there is a nice laundry room on the first floor if it is needed. We had problems originally with the refrigerator not being cold enough to keep our food from spoiling so we had to throw it all out for safety reasons. We complained to the owner but he was not able to get someone out there to look at the refrigerator before we left. We did manage to turn up the refrigerator all the way to keep drinks cold but not necessarily cold enough to keep our dairy or meats from spoiling. The cookware was thrown under the cabinets and some of it was dirty. Not dirty like someone had recently cooked in it but there were crumbs and other things under there. The handrail to the balcony was loose and the owner said that the condo was going to be repairing it but again that didn't happen until after we left. We also found the beds to be quite squeaky and a little on the soft side. We ended up staying an extra day and the owner was very kind to extend that to us at the last minute. Again I wish I could have given this condo greater than 3 stars but considering all the issues I've just listed I just can't. Overall we enjoyed our stay and we wish the owner the best with this condo.

Owner's Response: Hello Angela, Thank you for review and I am sorry about the inconvenience. As stated on our call since I have a Home Warranty on my property I did schedule them to go out for the fridge. They stated the electronic control board was faulty and replaced it. So now all is working correctly. Regarding the cabinets I will make sure the cleaning staff cleans it properly so there are no future issues. The handrail was also secured by the HOA. However, since it is a long rail (about 25 ft across) it will always wobble a little bit. I made sure it was securely cemented in. Finally, regarding the beds I guess that is a personal preference. Some people like it hard and some soft. All I can say is that we have thick quality mattresses. I will however check to see if anything is loose due to your squeaking comment. All in all since you did extend your stay I am glad none of these items deterred your enjoyment of the condo. I wish you all the best as well and thank you for taking care of our condo.

WOW - Beautiful place - Great view - Highly recommendable

  • 5 of 5

Cannot say enough about this place. We had no issues whatsoever and everything worked great. Dealt with Napoleon and he was very personable all through our transaction. We were a last minute booking and he was able to accommodate us. First of all the place is beautiful - Stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, a lot of flat screen TV's. We were able to sit on the balcony with some wine while enjoying a great view of the ocean. Master bedroom was very spacious with a very comfortable king size bed. Also had a crib which we did not use but nice to know there is one if needed. Second bedroom has a queen size bed, futon and upper portion of a bunkbed. We found the condo to be exactly what we needed. Very comfortable and spacious. Nice to have 2 full bathrooms also. This place is close to numerous shopping locations, attractions, restaurant as well as a brand new beach right across the street. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Napoleon for all you help.

Outstanding stay for Galveston Diva Princess Run

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Napoleon's place for the Galveston Diva Half Marathon and 5K run, and I will definitely be staying there again. His condo is classy, tasteful and extremely comfortable. I appreciate the attention to detail, personal service and roominess. The condo is even nicer in person than the pictures represent. The master bed and bathroom were very comfortable, temperature well modulated, and the kitchen space very nice and usable. I grew up running around Galveston on Saturdays for recreation and I know the island very, very well. This condo is in a great location to get to the Strand, Moody Gardens or the beach or any of the great restaurants Galveston has to offer. I will be back next time I want to go to a festival with my girlfriends, or just chill out to work on my novel writing. Thanks!!

Beautiful and relaxing - Would highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Had the pleasure of staying here April 12-14, 2016. What a great place. It is directly in front of the Ocean. We enjoyed relaxing on the balcony and drinking some wine. Napoleon was very helpful every step of the way. He called prior to our stay and afterwards to make sure there were no issues. The place is very clean, and has everything you could need and is very tastefully decorated. We enjoyed being able to walk everywhere we needed.

We plan on returning and would highly recommend this place for families looking to get away.

Labor Day Weekend 2015

  • 2 of 5

This first floor unit is located on Seawall Blvd. It’s in walking distance to a couple of nearby restaurants, WalMart, and beach access. The back porches face the Gulf and are surrounded by a palm tree / wrought iron security fence, but the view tends to be mostly of the traffic on Seawall Blvd. The condo was easy to find, and the codes were provided in a timely manner and worked as described. The master bath and kitchen appear to have been recently remodeled, and there are several flat screen TVs throughout the unit.

A couple of minor issues, some of which we had read about in previous reviews:

- No hand towels were provided (only bath towels and wash clothes).

- Not enough toilet paper (only 1 extra roll per bathroom)

- The master shower leaked water under the seal onto the floor

- The bed sheets in the second bedroom were dirty

- The dryer squeaked very loudly when first turned on

The main issue that dampened our stay was that the a/c unit responsible for cooling most of the condo wasn’t working, and the unit in the master bedroom did not help cool the rest of the condo. The temperature in the common areas (living, kitchen, dining) was uncomfortable, and half of our party (2 adults and a 6 month old) had to purchase a portable fan in order to sleep more comfortably in the second bedroom. Due to the holiday weekend, the owner told us that he was unable to find anyone to repair it during our stay. For as much as we paid for the visit, we were disappointed.

Owner's Response: Sorry for the A/C issue. As stated in a previous post the issue is due to a leak. Freon keeps escaping. I am in the process of changing out the A/C unit. Sorry I could not have it repaired during your stay. Techs are hard to find in Galveston during a Holiday weekend.
