Overview

Galveston Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 6

You will be staying in 'SeaForeverVIEW', a new luxury condo sitting on the seawall of Galveston Island. Pam & I invite you to share our latest creation, a romantic blend of beach cottage and soft pastels. Pamper your senses with soft new leather furniture and sandy-beach colored tile.

Your shower spa experience begins as water cascades over the aqua water-fall bathroom sink. Aqua glass wall decorations, float next to sand colored tiles, bringing back beach memories from the day's activities. Then, explore the many shower options, possibly beginning with the tropical 'rain' shower head. Close your eyes and drift through a misty tropical rain forest or adjust the wand height to match your height and cycle through the many options; spray, mist or invigorating massage. Men, if you like to shave in the shower, heat the mirror (no fog) with a little hot water, turn off the large rain head and stay warm with the 4 body sprays. Too much fun!

The private bedroom sleeps two in the queen bed. The hallway area hosts 2 adult sized bunks. The leather sofa sleeper folds out for 2 more, right in front of the movie theatre with surround sound. Enjoy!

Save money in the fully equipped kitchen. Maybe even eat dinner out on the balcony.

Beautiful Condo with Great View!

  • 4 of 5

The property was fantastic! It had everything we needed in the condo! The views were beautiful. We had some parking trouble even though we had a parking permit when we came back around 11:30 pm one evening and there was absolutely no parking. Everything about the actual condo was fantastic! The owners were available every second we were there and we had a great time!

Beautiful property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Once booking was complete, the owner followed up in an email with specific directions to follow upon checking in at the condo. When we arrived, everything was as he said. The condo was clean, and looked just like the photos. Owner checked on us to make sure we were satisfied. I found this very thoughtful. All beds were comfortable and can sleep six people comfortably. The views were absolutely beautiful. Security was on site at all times and very helpful and friendly. I'll definitely visit again.

Beach front condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for a three day weekend. It was exactly as pictured. Perfect for a small family. The kids loved the bunk beds and heated pool. The regular pool is larger but it was a little cold this time of year. So, glad they had the heated option. My toddler son loved the view from the balcony. He wanted to sit out there every chance he got. I enjoyed the location. Within a couple minutes of all the spots we wanted to visit. The owner is spectacular. He is quick to respond and gives lots of great tips prior to arrival. We will be staying at one of his properties next time we visit for sure. The condo was very clean and I loved all the little details. The kitchen, bathroom and bedroom were well stocked with all the essentials we needed. Plenty of pots, pans, towels, pillows, and blankets. We made breakfast in the condo each day and had all we needed. Beautiful views. Loved the beach this time of year. No seaweed at all. Lots of seashells for my daughter to collect. Would have loved to be able to stay a little longer.

Fun, Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time booking a privately owned property of any kind . . . the owners made the experience so stress-free and welcoming! We had a million questions and they patiently answered them all with kindness and good-humor. When we arrived, we enjoyed the Gulf view, the decor, the large provision of bedding and pillows, and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our own meals (though we did have to sample the local fare a few times :) Our kids loved the bunk bed nook! They read books, played travel games, and enjoyed that special space which seemed designed just for them. One thing that my husband noted on the location--it's close to everything you want to see without being right in the center of it; so you have the best of both worlds . . . nearby amenities, but the peace and quiet to enjoy them. I would recommend bringing along a roll of quarters if you plan to do laundry . . . the laundry room is very nearby, but it is coin operated. We were very pleased with our choice. Book it; it's great!

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a fabulous trip to Galveston, staying at this beautiful condo. It is just as pictured on VRBO and so tastefully appointed with everything you'll need. While it's not a huge unit, they make the most of the space. I so appreciated things like extra extension cord strips and hooks on the doors for hanging things -- I wish all condos we rented had put this much thought into all the little extras that a renter may need. The property itself is very nice and well maintained. The owners (Dave & Pam) checked in with us during our stay to make sure everything was good, and then again at the end of our trip. We've never had owners take such interest before. Don't hesitate to rent this beautiful unit ... I know we will be back!!
