Overview

Galveston Condo Rental Photos and Description

King Suite, Queen, Adult size Bunks, Leather Sleeper Sofa, 2 full Baths Sleeps 8

You will be staying in 'DolphinSmileVIEW', a new luxury condo sitting on the seawall of Galveston Island. Pam & I invite you to share our latest creation, a playful dolphin theme for the family while still saving a little luxury for you. Pamper your senses with soft new leather 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!

Clean, comfort, 3 Pools and Idyillic ocean view

  • 5 of 5

The condo is located on the corner of the 3rd floor with a beautiful view of the Gulf from the balcony. On the balcony 2 rocking chairs and 4 wooden chairs with a side table. Walking in you're greeted with bright colors with dolphin theme. To the right as you enter are 2 bunkbeds then the you walk into the living room. A queen sleeper, flat screen TV, small table by the sliding door with 2 chairs. The kitchen is modern with a stainless steel refrigerator amply stocked with dishware, flatware, toaster and most important a coffee maker. The Master bedroom has a King bed which was very comfortable with many pillows, a comfortable chair with ottoman and a flat screen on the wall. The Queen bed in the second room was comfortable also. There is a washer and dryer in the 2nd bathroom and the highlight of the condo is the shower in the Master bath. It's luxury and can cause squabbles over who's next. A Rainshower head and 4 adjustable wall sprayers make it a true experience and pleasure to take a shower. It's tiled walls and painting of dolphins provide a most relaxing chore. Every morning I would get a cup of coffee and sit in a rocker on the patio and just take it all in. A true home away from home which you never want to leave. If we decide to return for another stay in Galveston I would contact Dave ASAP to make another reservation. We've found our summer vacation home in Galveston.

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. The location was perfect for us. We loved watching waterspouts on the gulf as storms developed, caught a brief glimpse of a dolphin passing by and the fishing boats were mesmerizing wondering what they were catching. The property was clean and well maintained, the owner/manager responded quickly to any questions we had. We would definitely return and seek availability here if we are ever in the Galveston area. The only suggestion I have for future visitors would be to visit the property first to see what you need to buy from the grocery store..... There was laundry detergent and extra dish soap from previous renters that would have saved us money, but truly nothing to complain about.

Extremely nice place to stay(condo 356)

  • 5 of 5

The property was very nice and below the condo we stayed in was one of the pools which was always warm and quiet. Very quiet place to stay and away from all of the chaos and busyness of town. Would definitely recommend this place.

It was our first time ever using home away. We were very pleased with our stay. The owner of the condo we stayed at was extremely polite and answered any questions we had.

Staying at Dave's was really nice and clean! We stayed with our son and his wife and son and we also brought our other grandson. The pools were very nice including the children's pool. You won' regret staying here

Best family vacay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The condo was clean and very nice. Best view! At night, sitting on the balcony and watching the ocean in the moonlight! Beautiful! It was also very nice to have a kitchen to cook in. Made breakfast every day! Again, we had a wonderful time here. The pools are nice too and lots of friendly people! Loved it.
