We are very prompt with email and phone call messages. 99% of the time we will get you an answer the same day as your inquiry. We hear that a lot of listings on here don't return emails and calls. You WILL get a prompt reply from us.

Immaculate large (800+ sq ft) two bedroom condo - with the bedrooms split far apart. It features a full kitchen, a king bedroom, a queen bedroom, a sleeper sofa, and all of the comforts of home. We have three new flat screen cable tv's, dvd player, and a Nintendo video game system (with 15 games).

We supply all linens and towels - no charge.

The kitchen has major and minor appliances. It also has all of tools for cooking and dining. We provide coffee, creamer, sweetnlow, hot chocolate, and microwave popcorn.

The complex has a large swimming pool with entertainment area, a private tennis court, and a complimentary coffee bar.

The large balcony overlooks the ocean with an unobstructed panoramic view. Most Galveston condos only offer a peak at the ocean.

Some unique things that we provide - a library of current books, a small movie collection, board games and cards, and an owner's recommended list of local and unique restaurants (from lifelong residents).

Our check in procedure is effortless. No standing in line...or driving to pick up the keys. You just drive up and go into your condo.

We enjoyed Galveston old and new plus the sunrise and sunset view from the balcony of this condo, all the makings of a wonderful visit. The landlady always available with any information needed.

“Just as described”

Reviewed 27 Sep 2016

3 of us recently stayed at this property for 2 nights and thoroughly and completely enjoyed it. The condo was just as described, perfectly furnished and very comfortable. The information and instructions sent by email prior to our stay were very thorough and complete. Highly recommend this unit and will rent again!

Owner's reply: Thanks for the nice review, Stephen. Glad you and your guests enjoyed your stay. Come again!

“Monthly Stay”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2016

We spent the month July at this beautiful location. There are no words to waking up to an ocean view each day. Sitting on the balcony each night looking at the moon and listening to the ocean is peaceful to say the least. We would highly recommend this condo whether it's for a long weekend or a monthly stay as we did. The city is inviting and historical, fresh sea food, and great food all around

Owner's reply: Thank you for the kind words. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. Hopefully, you can return some day. Carolyn

“Heavenly, mezmorizing.”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2016

The condo and view are exactly as shown. The Master bedroom is heavenly to wake to the waves on the beach. Carolyn, the owner had all things available to use there. We only needed to buy our own food to cook - if we did not eat out. The beach is exactly across from the condo, just walk across the street right too the steps. No long walk to cross nor locate steps to enter the beach. Got to see some dolphins, birds, and more right from the long large balcony. Someone said they could hear the sounds of traffic, I didn't with the doors closed. The pool was warm and very pleasant for the family too. Of course the team of staff was very friendly throughout our visit and very helpful when needing a hand. The condo was clean and felt like 'home' in a very different place. Pet friendly, my chiuaua mix loved the whole time, beach, in n out, space for her to walk and potty bags too. Took me 24 ours to get there but was well worth the traveling! Will love to visit again! Highlights: Ferry ride (oh yes), Feeding the birds (crackers) from my hand (oh yes!) , exploring other areas of the beach and Island - gorgeous!, Views of dolphins, lots of nature, walking the beach, eating out, sitting on the balcony and enjoying the totally awesome view and sounds of the waves. Thank you Jesus, God, and all the Angels that watched over all of us as we loved and will cherish this whole vacation for a long long time! My family came in from Bellviile, TX to share this time together. I drove in from Way up NE Missouri, Kirksville, MO.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the nice review! Glad we could accommodate you and your family! Sounds like a vacation anyone would enjoy. Hope you can return some day! May God continue to bless you and your family.

“Great View!!!”

Reviewed 27 Jun 2016

Could not ask for a better view, some parts of the condo is a little dated, but over all great room.

Owner's reply: Glad you enjoyed the GREAT VIEW! The first time I saw it, it took my breath away. You're right about some areas of the condo being a little dated. We are considering an upgrade after the peak rental season is over. Hope you can return some day.

Enjoyed the breeze, the view, and location, Clean well designed condo. Especially enjoyed being able to bring my good well mannered pet.

We had a great time! The condo was neat, clean and so convenient. I appreciated that we were able to bring our little dog because I worry too much about her to leave with anyone. I hope to come back again! The staff was super friendly and helpful!

Owner's reply: Glad you enjoyed your stay, Shawna. Thanks for the nice unsolicited review! We believe vacations are always better with our pet. We try to provide a condo you can enjoy. Agreed--Our staff is the best! Come again!

“Wonderful place to stay”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2015

I had never seen the ocean before so I was looking for a place where I could see the ocean. The pictures are exactly as it is. We could sit on the couch or the balcony or lie in bed and watch the waves. It was wonderful. The condo was clean and had everything we could have needed and was conveniently located. We have recommended this condo to others and will definitely be back. The deposit was quickly refunded. We forgot our dog crate and they sent me an email letting me know they had it in their storage area for us. Thank you so much for everything.

Owner's reply: We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and our condo pleased you. That's our goal. The first time I entered the condo and saw the view of the ocean, it took my breath away. Unsolicited reviews are really appreciated. Hope you can return some day.

“Great stay”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2015

We stayed at By the Sea condos and had a wonderful experience. They were very friendly and helpful. We brought our two doxies and they loved it as well, the area for the dogs was nice, and our condo had everything we could possible need.

Owner's reply: Thanks for the nice review, Deborah. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. Come again!
