Islander East studio description

Updated on the beach studio with brown and green decor. We like to think of it as our ''Island Sandcastle'' right on the beach. We can relax on the balcony while watching the activities on the beach or stroll across the dune crossover and walk along the waters edge and enjoy the roar of the waves breaking just offshore. You will find it doesn't take long to relax, feel the sand between your toes, and enjoy being an Islander. The unit is cozy with a king bed with a tempurpedic mattress and a comfy twin day bed to sit on and read a good book or curl up and take a short nap. There is air conditioning for those really hot summer days or open the floor to ceiling sliding glass door to the balcony and enjoy the gulf breeze and salt air. And, of course there is nothing like taking a dip in the heated swimming pool downstairs. You truly have it all.


Enjoy all the fun at the beach and then take a ride along the seawall and try a variety of seafood restaurants each with its own special tempting fare. Or you can visit the numerous old Victorian mansions along Broadway that are open to the public year round and experience a little bit of what Galveston was like at the turn of the 20th century. Next, you can stroll along the Strand Boulevard downtown and shop to you drop. Zip into the Tremont Hotel and enjoy a drink at the bar while listening to delightful piano music. Then you can head back to the condo and relax some more. What could be more perfect! You'll want to return again and again. Then share this ''awesome discovery'' with your friends and relatives so that they too can relax and enjoy the gulf breeze even while indoors since they are right on the beach.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I am a retired Bank Vice President certified in Treasury Management. I live in Houston in a 3-story townhouse in the Museum District and I look forward to my weekend escapes to Galveston. As soon as I cross the Galveston causeway I can feel the work day stresses release and the relaxed Island lifestyle takes over.

Why the Owner Chose Islander East:
We first purchased a condo at Islander East in 2000. After two years of thoroughly enjoying the beach lifestyle, we decided to invest again in purchasing a unit to use as a vacation rental. Now others can enjoy the Galveston hospitality and carefree lifestyle.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
Wifi now available in the unit. Password and sign on information located inside the unit.
