Gorgeous, fully renovated, one bedroom condo on historic Galveston Island ready for your dream getaway.

Our condo is located on the Seawall, top floor with a fabulous view of the gulf. Enjoy morning sun, afternoon shade, top of the line balcony furniture including a glider and two comfortable chairs and ottomans.

There is lots to do on the island, Moody Gardens, Museums, Historic Home Tours, great restaurants, beaches, fishing, etc. Close to shopping, Walmart, Kroegers, Target, etc. A short drive to NASA, Gulf Greyhound Race Park, and, of course Houston!

BadaBeach has been thoughtfully designed and professionally decorated with quality fixtures, furniture, bedding and utensils. The bathroom is handicap assist. There is a walk in shower with grab bars, a high riser toilet and high sink. For those who may have trouble sitting on the high stools at the counter, a bistro table with chairs has been provided. Or use it to just enjoy a meal on the balcony!

The kitchen has granite countertops, self clean oven, microwave over the range, dishwasher, and refrigerator with ice maker. I have stocked the kitchen with quality cookware, utensils, and small appliances, toaster, blender, etc. We try to supply the extras for you.....dishwashing liquid, dishwasher detergent, cleaning supplies, paper towels, dishtowels, as well as sugar, salt and pepper.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed with luxury pillows. There also are an array of pillows just in case you have a preference. The lamps have "touch lighting" so just a touch and they turn on or off. Ceiling fan, flat screen TV with DVD player, clock, hangers, and a full size dresser and closet.

The bunk bed area present in most condos was changed in ours. This is now an excellent storage space for suitcases, cases of drinks, etc.

The living room has a custom sofa, replacing the pull out bed , flat screen tv , CD player, books, games, magazines, a bistro set, lots of lamps for reading too!

Our condo is available for two guests, however, on occasion, we may accept up to 3 gentle guests. This is on a case by case basis. The condo is NOT childproof, having expensive, breakable accessories. The cabinetry is custom and CAN NOT be climbed on. Our goal is to share our condo, not have it as a supermarket style rental unit. By doing this, we are able to maintain it to our level of quality, condition, and do not hesitate to supply it with brand name and top quality items. This is also our personal vacation getaway.

Our community hosts three pools, one heated, a hot tub, exercise and game room and tropical gardens.

Although we are animal lovers, we do not allow pets of any kind or any size. Sorry! Smoking is permitted on the balcony only.

We encourage you to email us with any questions you may have! Thank you.

Please note: Cancellation policy is different than posted. Please check with owner.

About the area

Galveston Island, located directly on the seawall, top floor, 5 units back from the front with fabulous view of the gulf. If you look off the side of the balcony you can see back to the lake and watch the planes take off and land at Scholes airport. Night time skyline views of Galveston.

Getting here

The closest airport is Hobby Airport, located south of downtown Houston. This is the most direct unless you have a private plane and can land at Scholes airport in Galveston. It is less than an hour drive to Galveston from Hobby. IAH airport, (the large international airport) is located north of downtown Houston. This airport is about 73 miles from our condo and will take about an hour and twenty minutes. I prefer Hobby for a few reasons, shorter drive time to Galveston and the rental cars seem to be less expensive. Since you are already south of Houston, you can even stop at NASA on the way to the condo for a sightseeing tour should you arrive early enough.
Either airport offers a very direct route to the island, using I-45 which actually ends on Galveston Island.

Interaction with guest

Our condo has a beautiful balcony with gulf view, located on the top floor, only 5 doors back from the front of the building.

“Sunny condo on a rainy weekend”

Reviewed 7 Apr 2014

Our weekend stay was more than expected. Despite the dreary weather which was expected, the sunny disposition of the condo made our honeymoon stay very enjoyable. It is the perfect place for couples to stay, yet is expandable for slightly larger groups. Our short stay did not afford total usage of the full entertainment of condo and site forms for fun, but there's always another time! The booking was made exclusively for the reason of being able to smoke on the balcony ( a real challenge in bad weather) , but this condo offers a home feel that hotels can not match without exorbitant suite rates. Therefore, the hotel's loss is the condo's win! Kudos to Bada Beach!

“Beautiful Condo with many details!”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2011

My family and I stayed at this condo for three nights in July. I must say that I was thoroughly impressed with all of the attention to little details. The condo was decorated beautifully and stocked with anything that you may ever need and more! The condo was very clean and view was beautiful. Communicating with Valerie was also great. She gave us some ideas on where to eat and what to do. This was our first family trip to Galveston and I hope to return again soon. My children are teens and they even loved the condo. I absolutely recommend this condo. You will not be disappointed. One more thing - Valerie returned our deposit in a very quick manner. She's a pleasure to work with!

“Great Galveston Getaway”

Reviewed 13 Jun 2011

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this very clean, nicely decorated condo on the seawall. Morning coffee and late evening wine were sipped on the balcony while sea breeze delighted. We like the west beaches of Galveston better than seawall beaches so this location was very convenient. The kitchen was fully equipped which made fixing breakfast easy. We swam nightly in the resort pool and used the hot tub, too...very nice. The bed was comfortable but a little small for us (we are used to a king-size bed). The walk-in shower was great. We would be happy to stay again at the Bada Beach Condo.

“Lovely Condo”

Reviewed 13 Apr 2011

My husband and I rented this lovely condo for 4 days. However, at the last minute circumstances changed and our traveling companions needed a place to stay as well. A quick call to Valerie and we had approval for 4 occupants instead of 2. (Four adults made the unit a bit crowded). The condo is well maintained and has great views from the balcony and we very much enjoyed our stay!

“Perfect fit”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2010

The condo was a perfect fit for me, my girlfriend and my son. Size was just right for us and as soon as we walked in the setup of the condo made us feel right at home. We even spent a full day in the condo because we were so comfortable and relaxed. Amazing view from balcony. My girlfriend did not want to leave this condo. As stated in other reviews, the owner is very helpful with anything before and during the stay. Many thanks to her! Only problem was the mosquitos. As soon as we got out of the car ,in the parking lot underneath the building, we were swarmed. Specially in the elevator up to the floor, but not a problem inside the condo. Other then that little problem everything could not of been any better.

“Very Relaxing Stay”

Reviewed 23 May 2010

A wonderful condo for two. Every thing is updated and clean and all essentials are provided. We did little cooking, but the kitchen was fully equipped- even to salt and pepper. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the morning and evenings looking at the Gulf. It was a very pleasant and relaxing experience from our first contact with Valarie. She provide alot of "what to do, where to go" information. This is a go back.

“Beautiful Condo”

Reviewed 25 Mar 2010

My boyfriend and I rented the condo for 2 days and it was wonderful! The view was breathtaking and the condo itself was absolutely beautiful, from the amazing kitchen to the awesome shower. Everything was exactly what we expected and more. Valerie was also very great to work with and we are both looking forward to going back again sometime soon!

“A perfect Getaway!”

We looked for a place that would be ideal for a weekend getaway and this is definitly it! We went for a winter weekend and really enjoyed our stay. The location is convenient to everything! The condo was immaculate and the decor is quite charming with a perfect view of the gulf. We loved the ammenities in the condo too - from the decor to the gourmet kitchen to the beautiful oversized bathroom shower - everything is 1st class! Valerie was so accomodating and such a pleasure to rent from. We appreciate her sharing her beautiful beach condo with us and are looking forward to our next stay!
