"Took a end of summer family vacation to Gaveston. This property could not have been better for us. Plenty of room for our family of four. Felt like our home away from home. Kids enjoyed fishing each evening off the dock, kayaking in the canal, and regular trips to the community pool. Adults enjoyed lounging on the deck and the seclusion from the Galveston traffic. Bait shop, local restaurants, and quick access to the beach were a plus. Kids are already wanting to return. I highly recommend."

"The property is very close to Galveston without actually being on the seawall. The place is very well maintained and in awesome condition.
Quick access to a beach with no cars
Storage room with beach toys, grill, other convenience items
Huge deck that is in perfect shape with direct path to beach
No cars on the beach in front of the property
Great family room with ocean views and large screen tv+cable
Parking below the house on ground level
Very authentic beach house feel to it
Nice set-up for smaller dogs
Probably can only accommodate a couple families with kids as the beds and total square footage is smaller (the pictures are designed to make it look larger)
No canopy on the deck"

"First things first… this is a great place to stay in Galveston, and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Maria was great to deal with in reserving the condo and providing any info we asked for. The condo is clean and well-furnished, if a little bit on the small side, and sits in a great spot on the island. You absolutely cannot beat the direct beach access, or not having to cross busy Seawall Blvd. That was one of my primary requirements in choosing a condo to rent, and it was the best part of the whole experience.
The location, which is on the far south side of the island away from the crowds, also offers a bit more seclusion on the beach than some other spots. The large hotel to the north juts out into the water and effectively blocks off the beach to the left, limiting the traffic. We were down there half a dozen times, and there were never more than 8-10 people within a couple hundred yards of us. Granted, this was in October, not high season. But we were very happy with the amount of beach we were able to use.
The pool was very nice, also not crowded. There were two hot tubs, including a shallow one just for kids. Great idea. The building, location and facilities were pretty much everything you could ask for.
The one small complaint I have is that the photos from the patio don’t depict your actual view very well. The view to the beach is partially obstructed by the condominium offices, which are brightly lit at night. You can still see the beach and you can see the waves come in. But you have to look around some stuff and through some stuff. It definitely would not keep me from renting here again, but I think the photos should show the actual view instead of zooming past the obstructions.
Again, that’s not a deal killer. This was a very nice condo and an excellent location. We thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely come back. Thanks, Maria!"
