Description from owner

This condo is across the street from Galveston's sandy beach! It is in a prime location--a large 721 sq ft corner unit in the very front building #1 of the complex, two doors down from the lobby with easy access by either stairs (just outside the front door) or by elevator. The ice machine and drink machine are just a short walk away on the same floor.

The Best Pools in Galveston!

***We are the best at returning emails and phone calls. 99% of the time you will get a reply the same day of your inquiry. We hear stories of other listings that do not return emails and calls. Guests are provided the owner's personal cell phone number to assure access. Thanks for looking!

Outdoor extras - A wheeled ice chest is provided for your trips to the pool, beach or Schlitterbahn (no glass allowed). Noodles for the pools and skim boards for the beach are favorites with the kids.

Indoor extras - DVD movies, small library of books, board games, and binoculars for "people watching" or catching a view of the dolphins.

Electronics - three flat screen TVs and a DVD player

Our newly remodeled condo has a small serving bar, two private queen bedrooms, bunk beds in an alcove, a new full size sleeper sofa and 1-1/2 bathrooms. (Top bunk has a 120 lb. weight limit.) The kitchen features a fridge, dishwasher, cook top, microwave, blender, slow cooker, coffee maker, toaster and toaster oven large enough to cook a 10" pizza. Cookware, utensils, glasses, dishes and silverware are included.

Besides our great location, our favorite feature is the private Gulf-view balcony. It's shaded in the evening- - perfect for winding down after a day at the beach or Schlitterbahn.

The complex has the most amenities on the island - two pools (one with shallow area for the little ones), tennis court, hot tub, exercise room, free WiFi, and a small game room. Covered parking is provided and there are security guards at the entrances restricting access after dark. Parking passes are issued to guests on their arrival. Both the covered parking and one of the pools are very close to our condo unit.

Our check-in procedure is effortless - no standing in line...or driving to get the keys. You just drive up and go into your condo. The parking pass and access codes are available at the front desk in the lobby.

This is a smoke-free pet-free unit.

Beds: 2 Queen Beds, 2 Twin Beds, 1 Sofa Bed

About the area

Our condo is located in the preferred area of Galveston on Seawall Boulevard. It is right in the middle of the action. You will be within two miles of Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens, Putt Putt Golf, fishing areas, numerous restaurants, and souvenir shops. The new pleasure pier is now open and located down the Boulevard. The 61st Street Fishing Pier can be seen from our balcony and is within walking distance from our unit. Walmart is conveniently located in the next block from our complex. Be sure and bring your walking/jogging/skating shoes--the Galveston Seawall is the best trail in the state! There are numerous bike rentals along the seawall too. You might like to bring some stale bread and crackers to feed the sea gulls on the FREE ferry ride to Boliver. (That's fun family entertainment that all will enjoy!)

“Wonderful place for families and seniors alike!”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2015

4 adults (including my older parents) and my 3 sons stayed at this condo for three nights. We had such a great time. The condo was spotless and provided great space for three toddlers, my dad who has mobility issues, and all of our belongings. The porch did have a great view of the ocean and was large enough for most of us to be out there. At night it was fun to watch the cars go by. The beds were comfortable. The pull out couch wasn't the best even though new (the guest decided to sleep on it as a couch the second night). We appreciated the blackout curtains. My twins loved the bunk beds in the alcove. We brought a tall curtain and were able to secure it across the doorway so it was like their own little room. A shade on the circular window in there would have been nice. The kitchen worked well and there were good supplies. There is no full oven, but does have two burners and a large toaster oven (that we baked a small pizza in!). Everyone loved the two pools. It is right across from the beach, but we did have to walk down to 61st street because the tide was in and it was only rocks. Not a deterrent though. We appreciated the cooler and beach supplies for guests to use. It was close to the complex elevator, trash shoot and lobby, but we never heard any outside noises. If we come back next year, we will only stay here! A great deal, and the owner was kind and considerate to our family's needs.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the nice review of our condo. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. I like the idea of a curtain for the bunk bedroom and a shade on the circular window. I think both would be nice features to add for future guests. Hope you can come again!

“great stay”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2015

we had a great time at the Victorian condo #1104 . the owner was great and responded right away. the kiddie pool is a few steps from the condo which was terrific because I had my three small grand babies with me. The only bad thing is the pools shut down and the whole island was closed down due to Tropical Storm Bill. We will definitely be back!!!!

“Amazing Location/View”

Reviewed 14 Jun 2015

EXCELLENT place to stay. Very Clean, and the Location and views were perfect. The Owner was Wonderful to deal with. We HIGHLY recommend this condo. And most definitely plan on going back.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the kind words, Tammy. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. We try to provide a nice place to stay. Hope you can come again!

“Spectacular View!!!”

Reviewed 11 Jun 2015

The view was great! Very convenient and close to everything. The Owner answered any questions we had. We will differently rent this condo in the future.

Owner's reply: Thanks, Deanna! Our family enjoys the condo too. Wish I could take credit for that wonderful view. It's just awesome. It took my breath away the first time I saw it. We try to provide a comfortable condo and we keep trying to improve. An unsolicited review like yours is especially rewarding.

“Clean and Convenient”

Reviewed 5 Jun 2014

My family (2 adults and 7 kids) stayed in this rental for two nights during my brother's graduation form UTMB. We found the rental clean and convenient to the graduation that was at Moody Gardens. It was across the street from the gulf with a perfect view of the waves. The rental was well stocked with plenty of towels (and we had a crew of 9), beach towels, and anything you could need in the kitchen. The owner has great communication skills and pays attention to the details. I appreciate the fenced parking and the fact that there is a security guard on duty at night. We enjoyed letting our kids play in the mushroom pool and drove a few minutes down Seawall Blvd. to Stewart Beach. The seaweed was bad and smelled but this was a Galveston issue not a condo issue:) We enjoyed out stay and will definitely look this place up again the next time we travel to Galveston. Clean and convenient is how I would describe this condo.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the kind words, Allison. We're so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. We are trying to provide a nice place for guests and our family to enjoy. We're almost through upgrading it, and this is our first advertising site. It was an unexpected treat to read your review. Your comments tell us we are on the right track. I certainly appreciate your taking the time to give us a nice "attaboy". Come again!

“Great Get Away Spot!”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2011

We spent 4 nights at the Condo and would stay there again. It was in a good location, a beach and fishing pier across the street and Walmart or Krogers just down the street. Very close to Schilliterbahn and Moody Gardens. The grounds and pool are very clean and the night watch man at the gate is a plus. Enjoyed feeding the gulls off the patio.

The owners make it an easy and convenient place to stay. It has everything you need. Great for families with or without kids. All we want to know is if repeat customers get a discount? Because we will definitely do this trip again at your place!
