Marilyn was amazing! The condo was beautiful! We were in reach of so many things. We did a little crabbing just across the street from the seawall. Everything was so great! The condo was so comfortable and had everything we needed! Loved being able to use onsite laundry..we wi definitely be back!!

Marilyn Swanson

Owner's reply:

I'm so glad that the family had a great time. I enjoyed having a brief chance to meet you and say hello to your 3 lovely children. AND, congratulations on the crabbing - not everyone tries it - but those who do thoroughly enjoy it. Looking forward to your return visit when you will receive at least a 10% discount from published rates.

Home away from home

April 30, 2015

We live in Galveston and were renovating our home and needed a nice place to stay near by. Marilyn came to our rescue with her beautiful Tropical Condo! The condo is clean, nicely furnished and very well maintained. The kitchen was fully equipped with plenty of dishes and cook ware, all like new. The grounds are beautiful and I enjoyed having my coffee each morning on the deck overlooking the beautiful pool. A little extra was enjoying watching the two resident brown bunnies play in the court yard! We stayed for 12 days and enjoyed every day.

Owner's reply:

We are so happy we could accommodate you during your re-model. From past remodeling experiences, I can totally identify. It's great to be nearby but NOT living in the same house when the remodel occurs. So glad you chose to stay with us. AND, thanks about the nice words about the fully-equipped kitchen. As you know, Larry and I are hands-on owners and enjoy spending time at one of our seven condos. When we are in Galveston we enjoy cooking at the condo and morning coffee on the balcony

Great Vacation

April 22, 2015

We visited Galveston for FeatherFest, a birding festival. This is a must event for all birders. It was awesome. The condo had been recommended to us and it just what we had hoped it would be. Marilyn (the owner) provided very helpful information regarding condo check in and check out as well as information on things to do in Galveston. The décor had a nice “beachy” feel and it was very clean and well equipped. The location was wonderful, quiet and convenient. The covered parking was very nice, especially during a thunderstorm. The balcony overlooking the pool was a very relaxing spot, and even when people were using the pool areas. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. There is so much to do for fun in Galveston and even with a whole week we didn't have time to do all the things we would have liked to do. We had such a great time, we already are planning to return, and have reserved a condo for next year.

Marilyn Swanson

Owner's reply:

We are delighted that you had a wonderful time at FeatherFest - an amazing well-kept secret - and of course that you enjoyed our condo and all the other things that Galveston has to offer. We look forward to your return visit in 2016 and this year we will not be out of the country! We look forward to capturing pictures of those roseate spoonbills on camera as well as sharing Galveston experiences with you both.

Exceeded our Expectations

February 24, 2015

My husband and I loved our tropical getaway to Galveston. The condo was exactly as described, no surprises. It was very clean and convenient to all the attractions. Marilyn went out of her way to accommodate us and was very helpful in planning our trip. It was nice to escape the cold and spend a few days in the 60's in the middle of February. I would highly recommend Marilyn and her condo.

Marilyn Swanson

Owner's reply:

Larry and I enjoyed meeting you and sharing all the special items and attractions of Galveston with you. We are happy you were able to visit for a few days and hope that next time you can stay for a week or longer. We guarantee, you will not run out of things to do in Galveston. Remember too we have 7 condos and your returning guest discount is for any of our condos.
