Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

WE RECENTLY ADDED TWO ADDITIONAL CONDOS TO OUR RENTAL POOL. IF YOUR REQUIRED DATES SHOW RESERVED, PLEASE CONTACT US AND WE WILL SEND PICS OUR OUR NEW CONDOS. BOTH ARE 2/2 AND RECENTLY REMODELED WITH UPSCALE IMPROVEMENTS.

True beachfront condo complex - not across the road from the beach. Seconds from condo unit to beach makes for easy quick runs back to the condo to get things from the kitchen, etc. and it is very family oriented, casual, relaxed and comfortable inside and out.

Ours is one of only a few units in the complex that have two large connecting balconies furnished with new patio furniture. One is off the living room with tables and chairs where you will enjoy wonderful dinners with your family and friends. Read a book or take a nap on the other connecting balcony off the master bedrom. You will enjoy this arrangement and the way it enlarges your living space.

Our unit has two full bedrooms and two full bathrooms, both with glass shower doors. The master bedroom is one of the largest in the complex and is wonderful for leaving the window open at night to hear the sound of the waves and again in the morning you will wake to a beautiful sunrise. It is a corner unit so it has windows on two sides, a comfortable king size bed, a walk-in closet and a flat screen television mounted on the wall. The master also has a door opening to a large balcony with lounge furniture.

The second bedroom is also very nice as well with a queen size bed and a flat screen television mounted on the wall.

There are twin bunk beds in their own niche in the hallway and a new queen sleeper sofa in the living room so the unit can sleep eight adults.

The light and bright living area is completely open to the kitchen. There is also a bluray dvd player and cable tv for the large flatscreen wall mounted tv with Blu Ray and Netflix streaming. We also include wireless high speed internet for you at no additional charge.

The complex has a large heated pool and two large hot tubs plus a kiddie pool all surrounded by beautiful landscaping and many lounge chairs. Beyond the pool area are porch swings and an outside shower for washing off sand from the beach.

Our unit is on the first floor above the parking garage and is right next to the staircase so is quick and easy to run up and down to the unit instead of waiting on the elevator. We are often able to park right next to the stairs. There is also an elevator toward the other end of the building with luggage carts.

We are so excited to own this condo and it is our second home. We are trying to add as many niceties for our guests that we enjoy ourselves and we expecty everyone that stays here to treat it as their home - to be really comfortable and have a great time. Most rental units in the area provide the bare minimum of supplies like one dishwasher tablet, one roll of paper towels, one or two coffee filters, etc but we prefer to make our guests more comfortable by providing you with more generous supplies of our own.

Have you been to Galveston before? We can recommend some dining and entertainment choices that we personally enjoy.

If you have suggestions or questions please contact us.

About Steven or Kerry

Empty nesters in Tomball, Texas. We love to spend time with family and friends at our lovely condo at the beach!

Steven or Kerry purchased this condo in 2011

Why Steven or Kerry chose Gulf Coast

We visit Galveston regularly for our business and had previously rented at this condo complex many times. Really liked the complex and the location is great for quick trips to town for shopping, sightseeing and dining out.

What makes this condo unique

Immediate escape to the sound and feel of the waves, the sand and the many waterbirds. The sound of the surf and the breeze coming through the bedroom windows in the morning when the weather is cool is is so refreshing! We really like to cook out at the beach or at the bbq grills and then eat dinner with friends on the balcony.

Truly on the BEACH

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Seascsape. It is located directly on the beach. This is key if you have a young family with you. (If you haven't been to Galveston before, there is a VERY busy four lane road that runs along the seawall. Most hotels are on the opposite side of the street from the beach. Even with our older children, I would not have felt safe trying to cross the road.) Seascape is far enough away from the seawall to be a quieter, but is still only a few minutes drive to the amenities you will want, unlike the properties further down the island.

The directions to the resort and the instructions for once we arrived were easy to follow. The condo itself was impeccably clean. Everything promised in the listing is there. Beds and bedding were of high quality. The kitchen was fully stocked in terms of dishes, pots, pans, utensils, etc. There are two separate large patio areas with an ocean view. The staff at the resort were very friendly and helpful.

We are a family of four, and found the condo very comfortable. The condo sleeps 8 people, but I think this would be quite crowded as the living space is small.

This was our first VRBO vacation. We'll use the service again, and if we are in Galveston again, we would definitely stay here.

Good

  • 4 of 5

Nice location and amenities. The parking situation is a little disappointing and frustrating. Only two parking spots per unit. I can understand if the parking lot is always near capacity, but when it's less than half full and your only options are to get towed in the night, park at Walmart, or pay 14 dollars to park at the RV park it's difficult to understand.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. I understand the frustration with the parking. The rules are made by the HOA and enforced by HOA employees (guards). We, as owners, have voiced our disapproval with the strict parking rules especially when occupancy is low. Our voices have proven fruitless and we have no control over the parking rules. I guess it is better to have one set of rules for everyone so it is the same from one employee to another. Steven Harvey 713.502.6005

Small things need to be repaired like glass door cracked and hole in patio chair and front of refrigerated covered in some brown yuck! Location was great and very comfortable lots of space for family of 4. Loved the pool and hot tubs, beach access convienent and property well maintained other than needing minor repairs , grounds well maintained as well. Stores close by for needed items like coffee and snacks. Overall would definitely rent again.

geat as ever

  • 5 of 5

while I could not go due to unplanned minor surgical event, I sent the rest of my family. I could not disappoint my grandson. Those memories will last a lifetime. He did a Facetime video for me of the condo and sent me photos each day of the beach and swimming pool and the Ellysia. What l love is that Stephen and Kerry are so easy to work with. They send info in such a timely manner you just know all will be well and it makes for such an easy and enjoyable time.

Upon their return, I asked my grandson, "which is better? Christmas or Galveston?" Of course he replied " Galveston"

And then he said the best would be Christmas in Galveston.

Thanks again for helping this family make such wonderful memories.

P. S. Taylor loved the bunk beds. He said one was for his toys and one was for him to sleep in.

Fabulous Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row we have rented from these guys. This year we were in a different condo than last. Both of their properties are terrific! This one did not have washer & dryer which I feared would be an issue with a four year old boy that loves to get dirty. However, the bunk beds that fill the location where the washer & dryer unit sit in the other unit made up for it times ten! Our boy had a blast in his special little nook!

The beach area owned by the property was so peaceful. It was never crowded and I always felt safe, especially with the lifeguard stand right there in the middle of the property's beach. Many guests of the Seascape would even leave their Easy Up canopies out overnight. We will do the same next year hopefully. This unit's owner's closet was very useful and helpful! We used one of their chairs and a couple of the beach toys for building castles. I needed aluminum foil, as I forgot to pack it, but there it was! FYI... don't plan any crock-pot meals unless you bring your own. That was not an issue for us; we improvised and still had some of the best meals we've prepared for ourselves in a while! The blender was handy for afternoon smoothies. The condo is so well-equipped and the property so much fun with such easy access, we only left the place once! That was only to go for Ben & Jerry's since our little Texas hometown does not have one. The pool got a bit crowded at times but never so much that it was unpleasant. All the guests we encountered were nice and easy-going. If you have children I can not emphasize enough how terrific this location is! As we arrived and departed we saw numerous families trying to cross the seawall from their hotels or condos to get to the beach. They looked miserable and I was scared for them. Carrying kids or squeezing their hands while toting a big bag and pulling a wagon with chairs and shade and all the necessities......just miserable! I am sure they paid less for their lodging but my goodness, I can't imagine all that chaos. Vacation should be fun! Not stressful. The Seascape provides a stress-free way to go back and forth from your comfortable lodging to the beach, within 3 minutes or less. Just perfect!

FYI.... we regretted calling Steve about the NETFLIX after we couldn't get it to work. Steve was great! He didn't say or do anything to make us regret calling him. He tried to help but we were just stumped. Later, we unplugged everything, plugged it all back in, and BAM! NETFLIX!

Great !!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was very comfortable for our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teenage boys). Plenty of room for everyone. Condo was clean, and well stocked. Great location, right on the beach and not far from restaurants and shopping. We enjoyed the pool also during our stay. We had no problems with this condo and had a great time. Thanks

Nearest Point of Interest
Beachfront Seascape

Kite Flying and watching the kites flying are wonderful here. Building sandcastles. Watching the kids (and adults) play in the sand, ride boogie boards, skim boards, surf fishing, lounging with a cold drink in the water, on the beach or at the pool! Hot tubs especially on cool nights. Watching the sand crabs and MANY seabirds. Walking the beach anytime but especially sunrise and evening. Cooking on the grill and then eating out on the balcony with the sound and sight of the surf. Drinking coffee on the balcony or in a chair at the edge of the water - soul soothing!
