Victorian Condos (Formerly Hawthorn Suites) condo description

Our goal is to provide an affordable, stress free vacation for our guests. It's frustrating to see a rate, but find there's all those additional fees (cleaning, deposits, etc.), but you won't find them here. There are so many condos to choose from, so we have to work very hard to earn 5 star reviews so people will choose us. We try to think of everything a guest would want in there, so it's probably there. Movies, games, lots of tolietries, linens, towels, kitchen items, beach chairs, umbrellas, toys, sound machine so you can listen to soothing sounds while going to sleep, pretend aquarium, etc. We have a plush bed with Serta mattress topper, and 2 dressers so you can unpack, and the list could go on and on.

Please read our reviews as that is best way to hear about our condo. We also have a full size refrigerator (most don't), FANTASTIC ocean view as it is a front unit, dishwasher, stove top, toaster oven, and list goes on. This place just feels like you are home because everything is there already. We've been told many times we have the best view and location on the property.
Guests also comment as to how clean and well stocked the condo is, and all the extras you will find that you didn't expect. It really does have an incredible view for you to enjoy inside the condo--and it has largest size balcony as it is corner unit. You can be anywhere inside (except bathroom), and enjoy the fantastic ocean view. It's a front unit so it's quick to walk outside onto beach and Seawall too. Courtyard right outside your door and has a large balcony overlooking the pool. The living room has two sofas and a dining table with chairs. The grounds are beautiful and the condo is next door to Super Wal-mart and many restaurants within walking distance.

If your dates are taken or if you need/want 2 condos next to each other, let us know. Note our reviews showing we always receive 5 star reviews for all of our condos. We have 4 other condos too, and renting condos out is our only job, so we are there for you 24/7, and expect an almost immediate response too. We like guests to call us if they want recommendations on where to eat, what to do, what do I think about this place or that. I've been to them all almost and I can tell you.

                  Location

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  There is a fitness center and lighted tennis court on the property and tennis balls and rackets are in the condo. Hot tubs are fairly large, and pool view from the extra large balcony. Walk across the street to the 61st Street fishing pier great margaritas and/or pizza. Great place to take kids too for a snow cone or hot dog. You have to buy something to be able to sit on decks way out there, and watch the people catch fish. And, we'd also watch the volcano at the Rainforest Cafe that goes off every 30 minutes at dusk. Rainforest also has wonderful outdoor entertainment in the summer evenings from 6-10 (music, magicians, dancing, DJs, etc.). For watching dolphins, the #1 attracttion is the free 20 minute ferry ride to Bolivar Penisula--(instead of driving your car onto the ferry, we suggest the free parking lot by the ferry--just park car, and walk on the ferry, so you don't have to wait in line--in the summer, there is a usually a long line). Galveston has Moody Gardens, Schittlerbaun, the $60 million Pleasure Pier, which is an amusement park on a long boardwalk directly on the ocean. They sometimes have bicycle taxis (a bike driver with a bench on back of his bike that will take you all over Galveston, and they work for tips only. There is just too much to do in Galveston!
