About Brenda Richardson

I have ALWAYS loved Galveston since a small child having grown up in Houston . I like the laid back eclectic flair of the Island. Family friendly and attractions for all ages! So much history! Great Restaurants!!!!

Brenda Richardson purchased this condo in 2017

Why Brenda Richardson chose Galveston

I like the location with it being on the Seawall away from the hectic congestion !

I chose to purchase this unit because of its view/ the balcony is up at the front of the complex just off of the Seawall away from the noise with its unobstructed view. The grounds are tropical with 3 pools/ the main is huge!!!! The heated pool is nice size and available year round. The kids pool is nice for the younger children .

Its beautiful and " foo foo" not to mention its comfortable

It has an Elevator! NO STAIRS!

Their is a Courtesy Guard that patrols the property and strictly enforces the rules in the evening

The staff at the front desk are very nice and take care of the Complex in our absence 7 days a week. Great homeowners.

What makes this condo unique

Beautiful unit!!!! Custom features

The View from the balcony/ one can see from the top floor all 3 directions of the Gulf/ Lagoon and the Moody Garden Pyramids in the distance.

Awesome Condo!!! Awesome Owner!!! Awesome Condo Complex!!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo unit is decorated beautifully with comfortable modern style furnishings. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. The 3 available swimming pools are surrounded by beautiful tropical landscaping. The owner really knows this entire island and told us where to shop and eat in the Downtown Historical District. Gary at the Saltwater Grill really did a good job and took care of us. The Seahorse Grill at Seawall and 103rd has great burgers. We will definitely book this place again this Summer.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words, Summer. The food and drinks for Happy Hour at Saltwater Grill are our favorite on the island. Remember that the next two Artwalks on Postoffice are June 3 and July 15th. Bands on the Sand are every weekend during the summer at Moody Gardens with a fireworks show. Hope to see you again soon.

We had a great stay!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was nicely decorated and was in a great location. We wished there was a hair dryer and a place to hang towels in the bathroom though. The bed was comfortable tand he kitchen had everything you could need. The pool are was clean and the hot tub was great. Brenda offered up suggestions on places to go and they were great. Very nice to see where the locals hang out.

Amazing host and very clean condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent ladies reunion! The hosts were most accommodating and patient. An item was left behind and they even offered to mail it to us. The bedding is comfortable and one of the 5'10 height friend felt the bunk bed and was comfortable. Good size patio! Plenty of towels! We will revisit!

Know there is a luggage cart to grab the elevator.

Beautiful clean condo with great view!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was so beautiful with great touches (fabulous bathroom, fully stocked kitchen, great balcony furniture, etc). The king bed was so comfortable as was the queen pullout couch. The pool was AMAZING! Big enough to support the entire community of condos without being crowded. Close bathrooms and rinse shower - more than we expected in a condo pool. We spent more time at the pool than expected because just a great place to go after the beach day. The condo location building was perfect (close to hot spots but far enough away to not be in the middle of traffic jams). We walked to Jimmy's Pier and had a great time. We will be back!
