VRBO Bear stayed here:
From the moment I stepped into this modern ocean view condo, I was so ‘beary’ excited to be staying here. With breathtaking views overlooking the ocean and an expansive balcony, this well appointed condo was the ideal place for my trip to Galveston.
Fully updated with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, the kitchen was truly a chef’s dream. It was also loaded with pots, pans and dishes - perfect for when I wanted to eat in or just a quick snack. This condo had all the modern comforts any bear could ask for including a super comfy king size bed in the master suite, a flat screen TV and of course wi-fi. The two bathrooms give privacy and convenience, leaving no bickering over who took the first shower!
The central location directly across from the ocean made it easy to take walks along the beach, explore Moody Gardens, cool down at Schlitterbahn and find some great bites at the many restaurants nearby. With all the fun things to do in Galveston and the comforts and convenience of home, I didn’t want this vacation to end.
For the perfect vacation, don’t miss out on this fantastic ocean view condo in Galveston, Texas!

Stayed for 5 days and had an excellent time! The condo was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Very convenient location everything was very close by and easy to get to. Especially Schliterbaun which is the main reason we came. The balcony had wire mesh so I didn't have to worry about our 4-legged family member lounging and enjoying the views too! He enjoyed himself as much as we did! Thanks Trey.

My family thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay. The condo is beautifully decorated, spacious, and offers a breathtaking view. Trey is a delight to work with and shared many great tips for dining that we took advantage of and thoroughly enjoyed. I have traveled to Galeveston a number of times and absolutely enjoyed this visit more than previous times. The staff is very friendly, and after a week of staying here I felt like one of the locals. Thanks again!

This condo offers a spectacular view of the ocean. Be prepared to sit and stare awhile. The balcony railing was fitted with mesh at the bottom to provide extra security for pets. So many amenities were provided such as kitchen items: coffee, tea, paper plates, paper towels, all cooking utensils, glassware, etc; then linens, pillows, and towels. If you do any food preparation, it will be a pleasure in the conveniently arranged and beautifully appointed kitchen. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets were luxurious. It was a comfortable condo, while being attractively decorated, it was also casual and we felt at ease. The building staff was friendly and helpful, as was every person we met there. There is a large pool on the grounds, behind the building, which was clean and inviting. Trey does all the correct things to be a superb host to vacationers and he makes everything so easy. All you have to do is show up with a few of your own items!

Trey, Thank you so much for the use of your beautiful condo for 2 nights. We thoroughly enjoyed our "stay-cation" and your condo. The location was perfect, it was a 6 minute drive to/from Schlitterbahn. We are already plotting our next trip to the Island and plan to book this condo again. Talk to you soon!

Year Purchased: 1994
About the owner: I decided 15 years ago that I wanted to be near water. Being a native Houstonian I turned to Galveston Island and am so glad I did. IBC (Islander by Choice) At first the beaches attracted me but then I started to become part of the community. The Historic district is amazing and boasts the most Historic Homes and Buildings in the nation. The Strand is excellent for shopping and the restaurants are terrific, especially the Seafood. There is also Schliterbahn Water Park and Moody Gardens which I highly recommend. I like that the Island is small, only 30 miles long and 3 miles in width, its hard to get lost! The population is perfect at about 40,000 residents. All of the Special Events: Mardi Gras and Dickens on the Strand to name a few are great. I especially like the Art Walk nights on the Strand that take place every six weeks. No more room to write....come visit and enjoy the Island throughout the year. Hope to see you soon.
Why the Owner Chose By The Sea:
I purchased within this building because of Location Location Location...Centrally located to all attractions & beaches with lifeguards, umbrellas & chairs. Back balcony overlooks Schlitterbahn Water Park, Moody Gardens, Downtown and the Historical Strand area. The higher up you are the better the view.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Twenty-four foot balcony, the largest in Galveston with Oceanfront view. Also, spectacular panoramic view within the condo with 22 feet wall of glass. Friendly building with 24 hour desk and LARGE fenced parking area with gate. Private tennis court and great tropical pool area with Cabana. Designer lobby, coffee and party room.
