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, two coffeemakers, 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 Galveston

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.
