Property description

Have it all – a two bedroom/two bath condo with fully equipped kitchen, built in washer/dryer, outstanding amenities, walk to the beach/restaurants, breathtaking views (both day and night) from the quiet side of Galveston’s Seawall Blvd. This unit also features some of the best beds you will ever find at a rental property. The panoramic view from the porch, living room and master bedroom is from the top non-penthouse floor of the Emerald By The Sea building. This spectacular view features a continual flow of ship traffic moving in and out of Galveston Bay into one of Texas oldest seaports. The master bedroom features a king size Select Comfort dual control bed, and the second bedroom has a queen size bed featuring the highly-preferred Tempurpedic mattress.

This unit’s beach friendly décor includes three flat screen TV’s (including a 46” flat screen Toshiba TV in the main room), a fully-equipped kitchen with a large refrigerator/freezer and a built-in washer/dryer. Building amenities include a huge “infinity” swimming pool that overlooks Stewart Beach and the Gulf of Mexico , a helpful concierge desk, fitness center, game room (with pool table, Texas hold-em table , etc.), wine room for private parties, and a movie theatre (bring your own DVDs or watch your favorite game on a really big screen ). Chili’s family restaurant, New York pizza and Subway restaurants are on-site.

It is interesting to note, an interior photo of our unit was only one of two such photos included in the 'a condo for your vacation' Road Trip: Galveston article in the April-May 2011 edition of Texas Live Magazine.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: Grandpa Joe especially enjoys taking walks on the beach with his family. He says, 'there are a lot fewer swimmers in December but a lot more seashells'. He noted that his granddaughters, Chloe and Maeve, are better at finding seashells, but his grandsons Luke and Kyle like to fish more. His other seashore buddies, Todd and Scott, also enjoy joining 'Mr. Joe' on family fishing outings.

Why Emerald by the Sea:
When our family was growing up, we lived in Lubbock, Texas. Galveston was always one of our favorite places to visit. We loved the local history, the beach, the big ships , the fresh seafood – and how all of this contrasted to our home in West Texas. Sometimes we would leave after work and drive our camper van into the late hours and end up camping on the beach in Galveston. The more we went, the better we liked the area and someday wanted to upgrade our experiences with a place of our own. Now the kids are grown and there are grandchildren. We no longer live in West Texas and are closer to the Texas Coast. We look at our Galveston condo as a long term family investment. When we furnished this unit, we chose first class accessories – furniture, beds, TV’s - the same high quality items that we would want in our own homes. We always expected to offset a portion of these premium expenses with rental income. So when grandpa went condo shopping in Galveston, he wanted a place that had great views, wonderful amenities, on the beach, and nearby the historic Strand restaurant/entertainment area. The Emerald fits all these wants perfectly. We hope this condo will not only be a good investment of money – but also an investment in great family memories. A place that can be enjoyed by our children, grandchildren and possibly even to our grandchildren’s children.
