By The Sea condo description

If you are coming to Galveston for two weeks or longer and need to relax while you're away from home, you'll love these quiet units that overlook the Gulf of Mexico. Three units available.

Unit #510:One bedroom , one bath upgraded from 2-1 to offer 22 feet continuous open view of Gulf, mirrored, nicely furnished. Sofa bed in living room.

Unit #504: A two bedroom, two bath units, one a walk in shower design, and the other a tub-shower combination.

Unit #501: A 2 bedroom 1 bath unit with all the facilities described below. Inquire for pictures and details.

Each unit features queen size beds, floor-to-ceiling glass doors leading to the 22-foot balconies, which directly overlook the Gulf. The glass doors and windows have a special acrylic 'double pane' that greatly reduces the street noise while keeping the unit cooler in summer and warmer in winter. Other features include ceramic tile throughout and a filtered drinking-water attachment. Each unit is fully furnished, and includes towels, bed linens, and everything you would need to cook and serve a meal. For longer leases, you will also have access to a separate 5' x 8' storage room on the first floor. With Gulf views from every room, it will take your breath away from the moment you step into your unit!

The building has a welcoming decorator lobby with a 24-hour courtesy desk. Amenities include a coffee/card room, a party room with a grand piano, a swimming pool, tennis court, ample off-street parking, gas grills under the pool gazebo, laundry room, and twice daily front door trash pick-up. Numerous video security cameras monitor the front and back parking lots. Wireless, private LAN's are installed in each unit and public wifi is available on the ground floor for general use.

By the Sea Condo is ideally located on the seawall. We are only one mile west of the 61st Street Fishing Pier and one mile east of the 81st Street Fishing Pier, and less than 1.5 miles from Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn Water Park, the Galveston Convention Center, Scholes International Airport, the Lone Star Flight Museum, shopping and dining. The cruise terminals, Historic Strand District and UT Medical Branch are only a short drive away.

If you should want to go off the island, Space Center Houston, Kemah Boardwalk and Downtown Houston are all less than an hour's drive.

Minimum two week rentals standard.
