About Renee Saur

I am originally from Tennessee, but have lived in Houston for the last 23 years. I love the beach. I am happy to be able to share my find of this beautiful condo in a quiet area of Galveston Island with others who want a relaxing place to spend a few days, a week or even a month on the Island.

Renee Saur purchased this condo in 2014

Why Renee Saur chose Texas Gulf Coast

It is difficult to find a comfortable place on the beach (no roads to cross) with such a beautiful view in Galveston. This is the one! It truly is perfect. You can walk 15 minutes to the west to Stewart Beach or 40 minutes to the East to Apfell park or the end of the Island. Even walk to Beach Town and have Sunday brunch at the Porch Café!

What makes this condo unique

This is a perfect location to get away from it all or just a short drive and you can be riding the rides on Pleasure Pier or water slides at Schlitterbahn or long walks on these quiet beaches. However you like to spend your time, you will find it here.

Little snafu, but taken care of nicely

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

After a little double booking snafu, we were re-routed to one of the owner's other properties and, although not generally our style or preferences, it served adequately for a night while the originally booked unit was then readied for the next day/night. Nice little unit, would be fine for a longer stay, but ideal for a few days at the beach. Wish our weather had been nicer, but it was fun tromping around the island in old haunts, with a nice little comfortable condo to come back to instead of a hotel room, for about the same price. A little more attention to the details (corners, light fixtures, etc) and this would rate 4 1/2 stars. But a well-equipped space with enough room for the 2 of us, would return in a warmer environment. Thanks.

Comfortable Condo with Great Balcony and Great Gulf View!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

On first arriving, you notice that the building is older but it is clean and on a very quiet portion of the beach. It's not part of the touristy area so it's very relaxing and the beach is quiet and private.

The condo unit itself is very comfortable for two people. It might be a little tight for more but it's perfect for 2! The kitchen has stove, refrigerator, microwave, washer, dryer and all the utensils and dishware you could need.

The bathroom is a bathroom. Nothing special but it is clean (which I always notice since I own a home-cleaning company). There is a bathtub with a showerhead, toilet and sink. What more do you need? The best part is that there are LOTS of towels provided!

The living room is decorated nicely and gives you a tranquil feeling. There's a comfy couch, desk, side chair, TV and a small glass-top table for dining. There's also a ceiling fan!

The bedroom has a comfy bed and 2 nightstands. The drawers in the nightstands are empty, so you can put your clothing in them. The mirrored 6-drawer dresser only had 2 empty drawers, the other drawers were full of spare linens, so drawer space was limited but adequate for 2 people. The bedroom also has a ceiling fan! :)

Our most favorite part of our stay was the balcony! It faces east, so possibly it could be hot in the summer, but we were there in October and with the exception of a few hours in the early afternoon, the balcony was in the shade will a full, direct view of the Gulf. The balcony was perfect for 2, with a high-top table and 2 chairs that had outdoor cushions on them. We spent the majority of our time on the balcony soaking in the view!

The beach is clean and private and most of the time when we were out there, we had it to ourselves. Quite relaxing!

We only have one complaint about the unit. I'm a 59 year old woman and absolutely could NOT open the sliding glass door to the balcony. It wasn't on any kind of oiled track or wheels. You literally had to be able to lift and pull a full glass door to be able to open it, which I couldn't do. If I had been traveling alone, I would not have been able to enjoy the balcony at all because I wouldn't have been able to get out there.

Overall, we loved the condo. It was fully equipped plus quiet, relaxing and comfortable, with an amazing view! We plan to return and when we do we hope that the sliding door to the balcony has either been upgraded or fixed.

I would definitely recommend booking this unit!

Owner's Response: Denise, I am glad you had a good stay! I am so sorry that I did not get the balcony door repaired before your stay. It now has new rollers and should work fine. I hope you are able to make it back to the Island again soon. Renee

Great stay

My wife and I made a quick get-a-way to the island for the weekend. Renee was great to deal with and always available for questions. The condo was well appointed, comfortable and had an amazing view. The facility was also clean and organized with good amenities (pool, grills, picnic tables..). we will definitely be returning.

Car: recommended

Islander East is at the far east end of Galveston Island so the beach is quiet. There is no road to cross to get to the beach making beach access very easy. You are only a quick drive from the Strand, Pleasure Pier, Moody Gardens, & Schlitterbahn
