About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps up to 6 (4 adults and 2 children)

Beachfront Oasis - This ocean front one bedroom condo suite is the perfect get away for having some fun with your family or slipping away with that special someone. Relax on your private balcony and enjoy the sights and sounds of the surf, swim in one of the two tropically landscaped pools (one of which is heated), grill something tasty and have a picnic at the barbecue pavilion, or head across the street to the sandy beach and play in the waves.

The condo is across the street from the beach and close to everything: Pleasure Pier, Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn, shopping, surfing, fishing, you name it.

We provide:

• Fully equipped studio kitchen

• Private bedroom with queen-size bed and flat screen TV

• Queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room

• Bunk beds for the little ones

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.

The property is walking distance from the beach and many restaurants. The property was very well kept and easy to access. Will definitely choose this location again!!

Very small unit that is outdated, with a rusty mircowave and coffee pot

  • 2 of 5

With that being said; the price was fair and over all the property was clean, quite with decent parking options.

Great stay! But maybe some new locks?

  • 4 of 5

The overall stay was great! Beautiful view outside, cozy inside. It suited the needs of me and my two friends. The only big issue was the front door. The lock was very hard to work with and we basically had to wrestle with it everytime we came back to our room.

Great location and super responsive, but unit is need of some care

  • 3 of 5

Decided to join my husband (and bring along the kids) for a weekend down in Galveston while he had a conference to attend. Found the unit a couple weeks out and was trying to minimize cost to the extent possible.

Good things: booking was easy; owner is quick to respond; unit was easy to find and was a great location; my daughter loved that the condos had a heated pool (since we visited in November; one pool is heated the other is not); the unit is small, but decent for a short trip for a family of 4

Needs Improvement: The unit itself wasn't dirty, but it is in desperate need of a DEEP clean. Even though the unit itself needs updating, a deep clean (including the grout in the bathroom) would do wonders. Additionally, the microwave needs replacing due to rust.

The unit is old and outdated, but if you're looking for a quick place to crash for the night and plan to be out of the unit most of the day, it's an ok value.

Days at the beach

  • 4 of 5

Great location. A foam mattress on sofa bed would be a must to stay there again. You can get one for about $50 and they work great. Balcony is wonderful. Owner very helpful.

Exactly as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to find this rental.. My family of (4) ( kids ages, 13,11) stayed the weekend in Galveston for a friends wedding..

Some reviews said the space was small... This condo worked perfectly for us. The space was fine. Nice and clean.

Plenty of blankets/towels/pillows..

Kitchen was stocked with what we needed for weekend...

Mary was super fast at responding to booking and check in instructions..

We enjoyed our stay! Would book again in a heartbeat.

Thanks Mary!

Notes:
All units at Casa Del Mar are privately owned and operated. We prefer to manage and care for our condo ourselves so you will receive prompt and personalized service when you stay with us. This is a non-smoking unit. We love animals; however, Casa Del Mar management does not allow pets at the complex. Early check-in and/or late check-out are available at no additional cost based on booking calendar. For a small fee we offer unique touches to impress your guests on special occasions: birthday decorations with a birthday cake, anniversary dinner with flowers ready and waiting, congratulations decorations with pictures of the bride and groom, just to name a few. Let us know what you might have in mind.
