Overview

About the property

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

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.

Dave

Great views and great value

  • 5 of 5

The condo itself was amazing and the owner was very pleasant to deal with. Both beds were super comfy and it has an awesome view (even though we couldn't use the deck due to repairs, which we were aware of beforehand). I would say the resort needs to update some areas, which I think they are doing. Kids enjoyed the heated pool (since it was only 50 degrees).

Nice and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 went down to Galveston. Though the weather did not quite cooperate the accommodations were perfect. The condo is well maintained and the heated pool and hot tub was utilized daily. The beds were comfy and the kitchen was well equipped. Thank you Dave and Pam - it was a great stay!

Beautiful , Clean Beach Condo

  • 5 of 5

We were 7 people comfortably staying in the condo over Christmas holiday weekend.

Our family enjoyed the stay.The kitchen was well equipped. The bathrooms was fabulous.The shower heads were not just usual.It had various setting to enjoy the Long shower in a vacation.

The beds were comfortable and clean.

We had little kids and they enjoyed standing next to the small window in the living room and watching ducks.

Relaxing comfortable 3 day weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful condo with great views. It had everything we needed to chill out. Dave, the owner, was very attentive to our needs. It was quiet. Everything was spotless. The master bathroom was a right out of home decorating magazine. Thank you for a much needed relaxing weekend!

Amazing views Convenient Locations

  • 5 of 5

Renting process was clear. Everything upfront. Dave went through the extra effort of making sure that any exceptions posted were noted. He even offered a full refund within 24 hours if you somehow missed it. What an awesome gesture to offer the best of intention for your renter. This Condo is clean, beautifully decorated, and fully stock with items you would need. Moody Garden, Walmart, and Kroger are all close by.
