Guestbook comments from the owner

Mary,

Thank you for the rent of your condo, I had family come to galveston with me and we had a great time. It was so nice to just sit on the couch and enjoy visiting with one another, not like a motel where you sit on the beds and talk. We go to galveston once a year to schiltterbahn with my karate group. Hope to get with you next year and rent your condo again.

Nice place for the price

  • 3 of 5

For what we paid it was a nice place, and they say you get what you pay for. There were 2 adults and 4 children in our party, 3 of which are teenagers. That being said there was not really enough room for all of us. This place is cute but definitely needs a good overall deep clean and update with some fresh paint, furniture and appliances. The microwave had rust on the inside so we did not use it. The floors felt like we were stepping in something sticky. The front door lock was a real pain! You had to learn a trick of pushing and pulling at the same time to get the key in and turned, pretty annoying and that lock should probably be changed out. Linens were subpar and probably need to be replaced with new sheets and towels.

Overall it served its purpose for our stay.

PERFECT!!

  • 5 of 5

perfect location, perfect amenities!

wonderful little condo, slept 3 comfortably, if we had little children or another couple we would have been fine too, but hubs, the teen and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Clean, inviting, and exactly what you want when you are on an island to have fun and need somewhere safe and convenient to sleep. Right in the thick of the island with all the fun things to do very close by, across from the beach. Front desk folks were very nice, Ms. Mary was extremely responsive to my questions before we arrived, place is clean and the area is well kept. Will def be making this a summer tradition!

Great getaway for me and my kiddos

  • 5 of 5

The unit was cozy and clean, great location, property staff was friendly. One of the pools was closed for a few days because of a problem with the chemical balance, but we just used the other pool. We would definetly stay here again!

good location and affordable

  • 4 of 5

our condo was the perfect location, on the corner with a crosswalk, to make it easy to walk across the street to the beach. the bed in the master bedroom was comfortable, but the couch bed and bunk beds were not. the pool area was very nice, but we were disappointed that a heated pool was advertised and there wasn't one. the owner of our condo was very helpful and easy to work with. it is an affordable place to eat , shower and sleep. overall, we enjoyed our stay and would rent again.
