ocean view condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 full Bathrooms (Sleeps 7

Your Galveston get-a-way sitting at our balcony, drinking your favorite beverage, eating your meal, watching the ocean waves, hearing the seagulls and feeling the island experience in the air is an amazing experience!

The amenities and decor are phenomenal! The 2 large bedrooms with 2 full bathrooms are perfect for a family of seven! The master bathroom has granite counter tops, double sinks (only found in a select few) and a spacious glass enclosed shower!

When your surroundings are beautiful and you're sleeping in a high end posterpedic mattress you will wake up refreshed, energized and ready to enjoy your island stay!

For your convenience, Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn Water Park and the Galveston Convention Center are only a mile away! Close enough to come back, take a rest and then rush back to the excitement!

Our condo is in a gated community surrounded by lush tropical landscaping, 2 resort style pools, heated spa tub, and a full gym with elliptical equipment and free weights.

You can workout at the fitness center and dive into the swimming pool to finish out your workout or take your margarita to the swimming pool and relax with a great book and begin your gorgeous suntan.

The large 54 inch flat screen TV will be a welcome in the evening as you relax and laugh over the day's events with your loved ones! Or just sit at the balcony and watch the ocean waves and listen to the seagulls!

A smaller flat screen TV is located in the second bedroom if you prefer to watch your favorite cooking or sports channel while reclining and relaxing on the bed!

You will absolutely feel like you are in a tropical paradise and you don't have to travel to the Caribbean!

One mile to Moody Gardens, and Schlitterbaun Water Park and the Strand Historic District for shopping and enjoyment is only 4 miles away.

This condo is SPACIOUS with a fantastic view of the ocean; located right by the seawall which is a great place to ride your bicycle or run your morning jog!

About Yolanda

I am a retired nursing professor who taught at San Jacinto Community college for 32 years. I currently work part time as a home health nurse for Coram Health Care.

I enjoy interacting with people and I find that renting my beach homes/condos still gives me that opportunity!

I grew up in Victoria, Texas, graduated from Victoria High School, attended Victoria Community College for one year and then received my bachelor's degree in Nursing from Dominician College in Houston, Texas. I have a Master’s Degree in Science (University of Houston; Clear Lake Campus) and a Master’s Degree in Nursing from the University of Texas Health Science Center.

I currently live in La Porte, TX by the ocean that I love so much!

Yolanda purchased this condo in 2011

Why Yolanda chose Texas Gulf Coast

Our condo is close to all the attractions, One mile from Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn and has 2 great swimming pools, a heated spa and even a fitness center! There are community BBQ grills near the swimming pool areas. We are also 1 mile from the Galveston Convention Center!

The management has a full time person to make sure the grounds are nicely kept and the swimming pools are ready year round.

Our guests who have stayed at our condos always want to return, CAN'T SAY ANYTHING BETTER THAN THAT!

What makes this condo unique

The ocean view from the entertainment room and the bedroom are AMAZING and the spacious double sinks with the large, modern glass enclosed shower in the master bathroom are unique and not easily found in other condos!

I have traveled extensively and stayed in many expensive hotels and resorts and this condo's ocean view and location is among the best! I only needed to bring the outside ocean beauty inside which is proven by my guest reviews!

I can't say enough about the great location - Schlitterbahn Water Park, Moody Gardens and the Galveston Convention Center are only 1 mile away.

AND the Strand Historic District for shopping is only 4 miles away!

Very conveniently located! We strive to provide superior furnishings to make your stay a resort experience!

LOVELY!

  • 4 of 5

Nice and spacious getaway!!! Thanks for keeping it available for us, we enjoyed our comfortable stay. The stairs were a challenge with groceries and heat but gave us a nice little workout on the positive side. The hot tub was wonderful at night. Thanks for opening up your home for rental.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the "nice and spacious getaway"condo comment and the lovely review! Walking the 2 flights of stairs in the Texas heat when checking in and out can be a challenge. As many of our guests tell us, the ocean and beach view is well worth the walk!

Wonderful family getaway

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay here. The condo was fully equipped, even with beach toys and a boogie board. The pools were great and we loved being able to see the ocean from the balcony. We definitely would go back!!

Doc's Quarters

  • 3 of 5

This condo was very spacious and did have a good ocean view. One problem was having to walk up 3 flights of stairs to get to the condo. There is no elevator. The condo was also not very clean when we arrived. There was food and other crumbs left under the beds and furniture. I did enjoy the area. My one problem was that there was damage to an area in the condo when we arrived and we were then accused of causing the damage and I was asked to call and give out my credit card number over the phone to pay for the damage I did not make.

Owner's Response: Hi Holly, I'm sorry that you are angry with me because I mentioned and send you a picture of the large tear to the seating part of our leather chair. I requested a minor charge for the damage to the chair with me taking the major brunt of the cost for the chair replacement. There is no way, the housekeeping service would have missed the large and obvious tear to the seating part of the chair prior to your stay as you claim. Never the less, as mentioned in my email. I will not force you to cover the cost of the replacement for the chair. I leave it up to your conscience.

Lovely propety

  • 4 of 5

We brought our teenage daughters for spring break. The condo is perfectly located across seawall and is very nicely decorated. My only complaint is that the workout room and hot tub were not working. I think that is more of an issue with the management office, then the condo owner. The condo has everything you need kitchen-wise. We would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review! I am not aware there was a problem with the fitness center not being open to the guests. I know a new treadmill had been ordered. The hot spa had a pump failure but it is now working. I hope you enjoyed the easy access to the beach across the street!
