Islander East condo description

Come on down to our special corner of Galveston --a terrific corner unit that overlooks both the Gulf and the Galveston skyline. This condo is right on the beach. You'll have sensational views!

Our condo is a great get-away spot on quiet East Beach, perhaps the best beach in Galveston. Not on the busy Seawall, this condo is just five minutes away, whenever you're ready to party!

Here you can watch the sun rise or set from one of two balconies. Or walk outdoors and right onto the beach, where you can stroll for miles. Or just sit and bask in the sun. There's no Seawall Blvd. to navigate.

The condo is tastefully decorated in a bright, contemporary style. It sleeps four comfortably, two in the roomy bedroom featuring a king, and two on the futon in the living room. Two full baths with showers and tubs accommodate our guests. So folks in the bedroom and folks on the futon have separate bathrooms.

The fully equipped kitchen includes everything you'll need to whip up a boiled shrimp dinner or a pancake breakfast. There's a microwave, coffeemaker, electric range, fridge, and for easy clean-up, a dishwasher and disposal.

We've installed password-protected wireless internet access, so you can easily and securely stay in touch while away.

The bedroom now includes a new, 32' flat-screen TV, in addition to the flat-screen TV in the living room.

Elevators whisk you to our sixth-floor location. Downstairs are a coin-operated laundry, a pool for a refreshing dip, and tennis courts. We have rackets and balls.

Come visit soon!

                          Area is world-renowned for bird watching, particularly the Bolivar Peninsula, a short ferry ride across Galveston Bay.


                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About the owner: We are beach-bound Dallasites who love the water. A Mississippi native, Barbara took family vacations to the beautiful beaches of the Florida Panhandle. Robert is a lifelong animal lover who has grown to appreciate the incredible bird life on the Upper Texas Coast.

                          Why the Owner Chose Islander East:
                          We had a small beachfront house on the Bolivar Peninsula that we lost to Hurricane Ike. In some ways, the condo reminds us of the house. The condo complex is located on a quiet part of the beach, like our house was. And the views from our sixth-floor corner spot are also pretty darn nice. What's different? Now we have a dishwasher and a real bedroom!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          Robert loves taking dips in the pool before bedtime. Barbara walks the beach, looking for beach glass. Both enjoy relaxing on one of the balconies, wine in hand, soaking up the view in the Gulf breeze. Moonlight over the water is spectacular.
