You will be staying in 'DolphinSmileVIEW', a 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 price includes a discount for balcony closure. The HOA has closed a number of balconies for inspection/repair and will not be accessible during your stay. You will still have a great top-floor view through the sliding glass door and huge window, but won't be able to access the balcony.
While this is out of my control, I have reduced our prices to help you make the best decision for your family. I hope this is a good compromise for both of us.
The over-sized master bedroom has a wonderful water view from the king-size bed. The other bedroom sleeps two in a queen size bed. The hallway area hosts 2 adult sized bunks. The leather sofa sleeper folds out for 2 more, right in front of the movie theater with surround sound. Enjoy!
This condo also has a convenient washer/dryer.
Save food budget in your fully equipped kitchen.
Wherever you choose to stay, I hope you bring home many special Galveston memories.

This was our first stay using VRBO and boy were we impressed. Such a great way to go compared to a hotel. This unit was super clean, well supplied and organized! Thank you Dave for answering our questions and supplying all of the information we needed for our stay. Would love to stay again when in the area. Only draw back would be the balcony closure but we still enjoyed the view and they are working to get things repaired.
The unit itself was amazing. The floor plan was very comfortable for us and the unit had anything and everything anyone would ever need in it. The master bathroom was just Gorgeous as well as the rest of the place. The Location was perfect and close enough that everything was a quick Uber ride away. The Beech and see wall is just right across the street. And having a heated pool right below us was a very nice bonus The Owner was very helpful, providing detailed emails with any and all info needed for the entirety of our stay, and even sent a message to check in with us to let us know he was there if we needed anything else but did not in anyway smother us like some other owners in the past have. The Staff at the complex was top notch and very helpful. Me and my family had a great time and literally can not think of anything negative or that would need improvement. We will most definitely be staying here again and cant wait to go back. Thank you David for a Great weekend.
A LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN!
Dolphin Smile View is a gem on Galveston Island! This private and quiet end unit condo has a straight on view of the gulf, as well as a view out the side living room window making it very light, bright and airy. It has wonderful floor length drapes in the LR and two BR's that can be opened to let the light and breezes pour in or pulled to have a light blocking good rest. Every inch of this beautiful home with modern finishes is planned out perfectly. The tile work and showerheads are fabulous. I loved that it had its own stackable washer and dryer and that there were 3 large flat screen tv's. The kids loved the cozy bunk table for playing games. The owners have a wonderful cleaning crew who keep this place in tip top shape. The owner Dave contacts you almost immediately upon booking and provides streamlined, easy check-in details. I appreciated that he texted to see if we needed anything. I was definitely sad to have to leave this little piece of paradise but definitely plan to stay again and highly recommend you stay here too--as it is clean, clean, clean, has super amenities, has a well stocked kitchen and is priced better than many hotels. The luggage carts were a huge plus also--making getting from the covered parking to the condo's front door almost effortless. Thank you Dave and Pam, we can['t wait to return.
Great place to stay!
This was a last minute mini vacation and staying here was exactly what we were looking for. It was super clean and stocked with everything we needed. The owner is very helpful and we'll definitely stay at this property again. You won't be disappointed.
Great vacation!! Beautiful condo, very clean. Dave was fantastic...answered all our questions and was extremely helpful! Definitely would return!
The condo was very well appointed, had a great view of the Gulf, and was very clean.
The rental met my expectations based on the listing information, and was very convenient for us. Great owner who communicated frequently to make sure we were happy. Highly recommend as this place was a value.
The new Schlitterbahn indoor/outdoor water-park and Moody Gardens wait for fun just 2 miles away. The new Galveston Pleasure Pier. The pier will feature a number of traditional rides, including a 36-foot double-decker carousel and a 100-foot tall Ferris Wheel. For the more adventurous, visitors will be able to ride a 200-foot tall swing, considered the highest ride in Texas.
