About Carol or Clay Witherspoon
We are a retired couple married for 48 years living near Galveston. We are both originally from Houston, TX, but Clay's job has taken us to St. Louis, Alabama, California & Florida. We purchased this lovely Condo this year as a means to supplement our retirement and stay busy when we are not fishing. We have always enjoyed entertaining and our Condo is an extension of that joy. Clay is retired as a Regional Sales Mgr., 50 years in the same industry & occasionally does Consulting. I'm a retired HR/Staffing Manager.
Carol or Clay Witherspoon purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Carol or Clay Witherspoon chose Galveston Island
Our property's amenities are as we would want them to be if we were staying there. Which at times we do, it is our little mini vacation even though we live so close. We choose Galveston of course because we live so near and knew we would be able to maintain our property our selves and because of all the wonderful activities to do just as a couple or with the family.
What makes this Condo unique
We fell in love with this Condo mainly because of the view. We believe that if you travel to a destination you should see that destination from your lodging. (Ocean view, Mountains, etc.) The fact that it had recently been updated with tile floors, new bathroom fixtures and granite counter tops Sealed the Deal.

Beautiful ocean view! We enjoyed the breeze every morning. Great location.
Everyday we walked to the beach, were able to walk to Walmart for a few items here and there. The pools and hot tub were great. Overall we had a fantastic stay!
It was wonderful!! We truly enjoyed it minute..
Just what we needed
Everything was perfect, except for the noise of remodeling going on in the complex
Thank you for your review.
I understand that there was some remodeling during your stay. I've spoken with our management and they have assured me that they will advise our courtesy patrol to be diligent in insuring that all construction/remolding be stopped at 8 PM. They have also stated that there is no more property remodeling scheduled.
I would hope that you will return. I will offer you a discount for the inconvenience.
This condo was exactly as described. It was the perfect size and well maintained with more then enough supplies to cook with. The beds were comfortable , however the only thing I might change would be no footboard on the bed and maybe some blackout curtains in the bedroom. I say that because I ran into it a few times, and I am one of those people who love the dark - darkness at night. Those are minor and did not create any issues. The owners were attentive and kind. We would stay again.
Condo was very nice and clean. Good location and very nice view. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Galveston. The price was excellent and I will definitely stay again when I visit. Thanks for everything.
Lovely complex. Sea and Waterfall pool view.
The condo was cosy and very clean. Good communication with the owner.
Lots of bathroom towels and beach towels, which was appreciated as came from the UK, so reduced our need to bring lots of our own.
The complex was clean, well maintained, good security, helpful reception.
Both the pools were a firm favourite, as was the short walk to the beach.
Close to local restraunts, and Wallmart is just across the street, for all of your basics. (plus suitcases when you buy too much from local shops, like we did.) Got around on the recently refurbished Trolly bus, that serves the west side of the island, including downtown, and the stop is close to the complex. A bonus this year is the fares have been wavered so all rides are free.
There is lots to do on the island, lots of history, with several tours, Moody gardens, boat rides with dolphin watching.
Suitable for families, or couples or retired.
Can't wait to be able to go back.
Galveston, Texas has something for anyone at any age. Perfect for that Romantic getaway or for a family with children.
