The historic Strand District in downtown Galveston offers fine dining and endless shopping - and is only a few minutes away for the condo.
Galveston's newest attraction is The Pleasure Pier which opened in May, 2012. It boasts a 1,100-foot entertainment complex built on a pier extending over the waters of the Gulf. The $60 million pleasure pier has 16 fabulous rides including two roller coasters, a carousel and a Ferris wheel. The Pleasure Pier also offers a food court, restaurant, carnival games and other attractions for the entire family.

About: We have been vacationing in Galveston for the past 40 years. We now are retired and have the time to go shelling on the beach with our kids and grand kids. We love sharing our condo with family, friends and guests. Lots of great memories and quality time spent together at Islander East.
Why Islander East: The view! This oceanfront condo has some of the best views in Galveston. The Islander East is a quiet complex away from the crowds. We like the privacy and security of a gated community.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: The heated pool makes this condo a hit year round.
There is nothing better than watching the sunrise over the Gulf in the morning and relaxing with a glass of wine on the balcony in the afternoon shade.
The fully equipped kitchenette while small, is a great added benefit. We like to bring our own food, cook it in the condo and dine on the bistro table on the balcony with the million dollar view. The refrigerator, stove and oven gives us the flexibility to save a few bucks by not eating out every meal. The dishwasher makes clean up easy.
