We are snowbirds and stayed in this unit Feb 1 thru March 13. The condo is very upscale and is in a great location. Last year, we rented a condo from the owners in the same building for 3 months. The owners are super responsive to any problems and this is a big reason for coming back again this year. You won't be disappointed.

We loved this place! The views from the balcony are great.

You can see the cruise ships coming and going on one side.

On the other side there is a great view of Pleasure Pier. You can also see the fireworks at Moody Gardens from the balcony.

The concierge staff made us feel right at home.

Great place to stay in Galveston!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was fantastic – so clean and so beautiful – it was convenient to everything. We enjoyed our trip so much. We would definitely stay here again – we had 4 adults, 2 teens and 1 child. Plenty of room for us all.

We used the game room every day – I came in second in our pool tournament!! The 15 year old won! We used the theater 2 times – it was great. The staff was very pleasant and helpful and the owners were prompt to reply to any question and very helpful, too.
