Unit 805Guest comment entered by manager
By the Sea was the perfect accommodations for our family. We had a plenty of space and the view was stunning. The entire width of the condo views the ocean and the wide balcony was great for all of us to sit on to watch and hear the waves. The kitchen had all needed equipment, but if you do plan to prepare meals, bring your own salt, pepper, seasonings, paper towels etc, as well as Shampoo etc. This is probably typical, but not being one who has used condos before I did not think ahead. No worries though, Wal Mart is just around the corner. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you Aaron, for always being so responsive!

I can't say enough great things about this experience. The room was well maintained and clean. Newly remodeled and very nice. Staff there at By the Sea was very friendly and always spoke to kids when we were walking by. Pool area was nice and there was ample parking. The ONLY negative is that there isn't beach area right across parkway. (But I was informed of this before we booked and we just drove to public beach access.) Aaron did let us know before we booked. We completely enjoyed our stay here and will use again.

Nice Condo, Pleased with Stay
The condo owner was very prompt and friendly with communication regarding the unit. Keys and paperwork were ready upon my arrival at the management office. The management office was not on site at the condo but it was only a few minutes drive away. Overall easy process for check in/check out. Condo was as I had expected it to be. Nice unit with wonderful ocean view from the balcony! Enjoyed the outdoor pool. I would stay at this condo again! A great time was had in Galveston enjoying beaches, pier, and restaurants.

My husband and I used to be frequent winter visitors to By The Sea Condos but hadn't been back for several years. Always loved this location because of the direct views of the Gulf and the ease of getting anywhere on the Island. This time, decided to use the VBRO and read the reviews on this particular condo-sounded very nice. Our expectations were exceeded when we actually arrived at this condo. Aaron, the owner was very nice to communicate with and very helpful and accommodating. Each time I messaged him with a question, my emails were promptly replied to. The condo was very spacious for the 2 of us with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The beds were very comfortable and everything was very nicely taken care of. The kitchen was very well stocked and decorated like in a design magazine. Very nice. Everything worked fine-the Wii Fi was set up and working and there were two very nice televisions, one in the living room and one in the back bedroom. The views are spectacular from the balcony which is very large. Love the security of the building and parking lot. Would definitely stay here again.

Well pleased!! just as described in the listing - would definitely stay again, very modern with good wi-fi connection. New kitchen and well equipped. Lounge area looks really big due to the mirror walls (the sofa is a bit tired looking but comfortable - can only to be expected as colour is off white, not easy to keep stain free). Bedrooms are well furnished with lovely wall pictures and beds very comfy, bathrooms clean with plenty of towels. Owner Aaron responded immediately to queries Thanks for an enjoyable stay...

Great spot for a weekend visit to the Island - with excellent view of the Gulf for this price. Remodel kitchen baths very nice. Owner is great to work with and very responsive. Time to replace a few lights in bath, and some of the bed linens. Convenient location to both east and west ends of the island.

We were very pleased with the rental of at By the Sea Unit #805. Great Location, pool was clean, very private. I have recommended it to friends and family already. Loved the Tile floors and best of all, sitting on the balcony and listening to the waves. Great place for relaxation, which was what we wanted.

Unit 805Guest comment entered by manager
The 805 unit was very nice, well kept and very comfortable. The owner, Aaron was a pleasure to deal with and very helpful with assisting with my reservation. I would definitely rent this unit again and recommend it to friends looking for a nice condo on Galveston. Unit is close to the main seawall area for anyone wanting to enjoy the area. The only negative is with the rental managmemnt company, they did not get the number in our party correct listed 1 person when should have been 4. The rental company took a long delay, days, in sending reservation confirmation. The Condo owner was very helpful in assisting with ecpediting the rental company to send my confirmation. Finally when I went to check in at the 3 PM time, the Rental Company told me the unit was not ready and the previous renter was still there, which later turned out not to be the case and we were able to get the Condo at the check in time. Overall the expeience I had with the Rental Company was very poor and sub-par. This would be the only reason not to rent the unit due to the grief you have with very poor customer service of the Rental Company.

Excellent CondoGuest comment entered by manager
This condo was wonderful! It was extremely well stocked and had everything you needed including a great selection of pots and pans for cooking. The Condo was lovely with upgraded flooring, counter tops and fixtures, the residents of the condos were extremely friendly and the staff was a true example of Texas hospitality! It was truly better than what you could ascertain from the photo's! The condo is conveniently located to Moody Gardens and many other attractions and the view of the Gulf is stunning. I have spent a lot of time in Galveston and even lived there for a few years. I must say - I hope to have the pleasure of staying at this unit again in the future! Thanks for helping make my Families trip a success!

Great Affordable Condo
This condo is very affordable and very nice. We stayed two nights and could not have been more pleased. The condo is very clean and updated and has a lot of space (we were two families). The view of the ocean from our balcony was amazing, I just wish that it was beach across the street from the condo and not rocks. We had to walk only a very short distance down the seawall to get to the beach though.
