Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 bedroom + sleeper sofa, 2 baths, sleeps 2-4. Right on the beach.

Come on down to our special corner of Galveston --a terrific corner unit that overlooks both the Gulf and the Galveston skyline. This condo is right on the beach. You'll have sensational views!

Our condo is a great get-away spot on quiet East Beach, perhaps the best beach in Galveston. Not on the busy Seawall, this condo is just five minutes away, whenever you're ready to party!

Here you can watch the sun rise or set from one of two balconies. Or walk outdoors and right onto the beach, where you can stroll for miles. Or just sit and bask in the sun. There's no Seawall Blvd. to navigate.

The condo is tastefully decorated in a bright, contemporary style. It sleeps four comfortably, two in the roomy bedroom featuring a king, and two on the futon in the living room. Two full baths with showers and tubs accommodate our guests. So folks in the bedroom and folks on the futon have separate bathrooms.

The fully equipped kitchen includes everything you'll need to whip up a boiled shrimp dinner or a pancake breakfast. There's a microwave, coffeemaker, electric range, fridge, and for easy clean-up, a dishwasher and disposal.

We've installed password-protected wireless internet access, so you can easily and securely stay in touch while away.

The bedroom includes a 32' flat-screen TV, in addition to the flat-screen TV in the living room.

Elevators whisk you to our sixth-floor location. Downstairs are a coin-operated laundry, a pool for a refreshing dip, and tennis courts. We have rackets and balls.

Come visit soon!

PS: More people coming to the beach? We have two more condos in this complex. Please call for details.

About Barbara S Hyman

We are beach-bound Dallasites who love the water. A Mississippi native, Barbara took family vacations to the beautiful beaches of the Florida Panhandle. Robert is a lifelong animal lover who has grown to appreciate the incredible bird life on the Upper Texas Coast.

Barbara S Hyman purchased this condo in 2009

Why Barbara S Hyman chose Gulf Coast

We had a small beachfront house on the Bolivar Peninsula that we lost to Hurricane Ike. In some ways, the condo reminds us of the house. The condo complex is located on a quiet part of the beach, like our house was. And the views from our sixth-floor corner spot are also pretty darn nice. What's different? Now we have a dishwasher and a real bedroom!

What makes this condo unique

Robert loves taking dips in the pool before bedtime. Barbara walks the beach, looking for beach glass. Both enjoy relaxing on one of the balconies, wine in hand, soaking up the view in the Gulf breeze. Moonlight over the water is spectacular.

Enjoyed the stay in Galveston

  • 4 of 5

Great communication, easy to follow instructions for check in and check out. Loved sleeping at night with the bedroom sliding glass door open and hearing the ocean. If you want a quiet stay, away from the traffic and noise of the tourist area, this is the perfect place for you. Easy access to the beach and wonderful view. As we sat on the balcony in the evening, the nightly Pelican parade as they flew overhead was a favorite for us.

Perfect Getaway with Great Hospitality :-)

  • 5 of 5

My toddler and I went for a beach getaway. I have some chronic pain issues, so I wanted to make sure that the beach was close, I didn't have to cross a busy road with a toddler and if I was in too much pain we could sit on the balcony and still enjoy the beach. This cute condo fit the bill. Often when I'm travelling, beds are an issue and generally increase my pain, but the bed here was awesome! I appreciated the added things that make it a little easier and fun, like a drying rack for beach stuff, some beach toys for kids, a few different beach chair options and a selection of movies if you'd like to just chill out.

The owner of this condo, Barbara, is a kind and generous person who wants to make your stay as comfortable and perfect as possible. For example, I have a fragrance allergy that means I can't be around anything that has fragrance like air fresheners, scentsy, essential oils and bedding washed in a scented laundry detergent. She was very helpful, understanding and truly wanted to work with me and learn ways she could help others in the future that may have this same issue. It was honestly a breath of fresh air!

Also, if you have a mobility device (like a wheelchair or scooter), this condo could work for you.

Best view in Galveston!

  • 5 of 5

Incredible sunset view! We loved the view from this condo so much it was hard to leave! Being a corner unit was such a bonus. The cross- breeze inside the condo was so refreshing and dreamy. Very homey with books and DVDs to enjoy. Also it was nice to have 2 bathrooms!

Barbara was very nice to work with and great with communication.

We loved staying here and would definitely stay again.

Great Escape at Galveston

  • 4 of 5

So relaxing to be on the Gulf at Galveston. Explored town and beach fully and really enjoyed the history of Galveston. The condo is at the east end and couldn't be in a better location. Five minutes to pier on the seawall and five minutes to the harbor and town. Very easy to come and go and then spend the last couple of hours sitting on the sand enjoying the end of the day. Nice private beach.

Condo was a little bit smaller than I imagined but very functional and nice to have the two baths. Like that it is a corner unit with views of the seawall and pier in the distance and the Gulf straight out front. Would certainly love to go again in Sept or Oct and would definately recommend it.

Loved the Harbor Tour with all the dolphins as well as the ferry ride. Touring old mansions is definitely worth the time. Seeing the 1877 sailing ship Elissa at Pier 21 was very interesting and worthwhile. The Galveston Historical Foundation also conducts the harbor tour mentioned as well as the documentary of the great storm.

Restaurants we liked the original location of Shrimp 'N Stuff a neighborhood no frills place with great shrimp. Also the Mosquito Cafe was great on 14th street. Went to Gaido's which had excellent food but was very expensive...had to go at least once, in business for over 100 years. Olympia Grill was also good on the seawall.

The Strand district had many fine shops and was easy to tour. The La King's Confectionery has great saltwater taffy and I'm not a big fan of taffy usually. Fun to watch them pull it. A few doors down was a great chocolate shop.

The owner of the condo is so nice and fun to talk with. We really got a feel for the area and will look forward to going again to include some of the things we just didn't have time for. Really a great place.
