I can't say enough good things about this condo. It is absolutely beautiful!! The view/balcony is amazing. I couldn't wait to get up every morning and drink my coffee on the balcony. The condo is well stocked with items you might need or have forgotten. The decor is perfect for an island getaway!! Thanks again for sharing your beautiful condo. I can't wait to come back soon!!

My husband and I decided to get away for Christmas and New Year’s. What a beautiful and comfortable place to stay. We love to cook, so the kitchen was impressive (large in size and well stocked –excellent knives, whisk, garlic press, wine glasses, champagne flutes, …) and the bed was extremely comfortable. But I have to say the best part was the balcony – excellent view and cozy furniture.

Owner response: Thanks for the great response!!! You hit my two favorite things about the condo. The fully equipped kitchen, which I do a lot of cooking in when we are there, and the awesome balcony. I love to whip up some steaks and gourmet side dishes and spend the evening drinking wine and enjoying fabulous food on the balcony...
I'll do a review from start to end and put some time in this review. From asking for a quote to getting information on the dozen of small questions I have my point of contact (Chris) was very responsive and quick to email! He called me personally multiple times to answer my questions before we committed into an agreement. Let's get to the meat of the review which is the actual room and service. I was floored on the excellent condition and literally high class hotel. They have brand new towels, soa, shampoo, extra clean sheets, extra pillows and a full packed kitchen. It even had blenders, coffee maker, knives, and cutting board. Literally everything you need and you just have to bring the ingredients. Place looks beautiful and it comfortably fit eight total guests. The pictures of the balcony does not do it justice. It is very spacious and has an amazing view of both the infinity and ocean view. From check in the staff at emerald were professional and quickly took care of the extra parking permits and laid out all the rules. They even gave us recommendation on places to eat and things to do on the sheet. Overall from start to end the experience was awesome. I will be back :). By the way walking to the beach is about 8 minute walk and you don't have to pay for parking! Only one down side is I did have complaints the living room where two guests slept were met with the sun flood lights every morning. There's no blinds to shut out the lights.. Sincerely, Don Nguyen

Great Place!!!Guest comment entered by owner
Good afternoon to you. I wanted to close our contract by saying thank you for everything. You have been very helpful and the room was beyond what I expected. I'm not very easy to impress and I was floored by the detail and energy which went into the room.

We spent a long weekend here in late August and it was perfect. The Condo was immaculate, with everything that we needed to be comfortable, yet still feel like we were on vacation. Kitchen is stocked with utensils, dishes, coffee maker etc, all the little things you do not think about, but are so happy to have in comparison to staying in a hotel! We LOVED the balcony, had coffee and breakfast every morning, with a perfect view of the beach! We loved to see Stewart beach so we knew how crowded it was and when we should head down. We drove to the beach, only because we had a little one with us and lots of gear, but could easily walk if preferred! The condo was very updated, very clean, TV's in every room, internet access, plenty of towels and pillows. We also loved that there was a secure parking garage so we could leave all of our beach chairs, toys etc in the car and not worry one bit about theft! The Emerald itself was very easy, clean, and safe. Great condo in a beachy location, but still all the amenities of home (which we like to have:). The owner is also very easy to work with, I booked everything in less than an hour, all via text and email, and everything worked our exactly as planned! We definitely recommend and will be back ourselves!

Owner response: Awesome review! Thank you so much. We worked very hard to make the condo enjoyable by all and it sounds like it's doing just that. See you soon...
Pictures only tell half the story. The unit is impressively furnished upscale amenities. Great electronics, high speed internet service and HD TV. Very well appointed with accessories and appliances. The balcony is a very comfortable place to relax and watch the gulf waves come onto the beach. The staff at the Emeralds could not have been more helpful. Everyone we met was very pleasant. The building is just a short walk to Stewart beach, perhaps the nicest beach in Galveston. The 6th floor pool deck is impressive. We certainly are already planning our next trip.

Owner response: I really appreciate your kind words about the condo and the staff!
What a great vacation week! The condo is beautifully decorated and Emerald by the Sea has great amenities. The condo comfortably fit the 8 adults in our party and provided everything we needed for a wonderful vacation. The view from the large balcony was amazing, the pool and hot tub were very enjoyable, and the ocean and beach across the street were great. The owners were very easy to work with. Would definitely recommend staying here!
