Property description

Amazing Galveston get-a-way with Babes Beach across the street!
Watch the ocean waves, hear the seagulls, watch the people at the beach and feel the island experience while sitting at our balcony drinking your favorite beverage!

The amenities and decor are phenomenal! The 2 large bedrooms with 2 full bathrooms are perfect for a family of seven! The master bathroom has granite counter tops, a his and hers sinks and a spacious, modern glass enclosed shower!

When your surroundings are beautiful and you're sleeping in a high end posterpedic mattress you will wake up refreshed, energized and ready to enjoy your island stay!

For your convenience, Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn Water Park and the Galveston Convention Center are only a mile away! Close enough to come back, take a rest and then rush back to the excitement!

Our condo is in a gated community surrounded by lush tropical landscaping, 2 resort style pools, heated spa tub, and a full gym with elliptical equipment and free weights.

You can workout at the fitness center and to finish your workout dive into the swimming pool. Relax at the swimming pool with a great book and begin your gorgeous suntan.

The large 54 inch flat screen TV will be a welcome in the evening as you relax and laugh over the day's events with your loved ones! Or just sit at the balcony and watch the ocean waves at the beach and listen to the seagulls!

A smaller flat screen TV is located in the second bedroom if you prefer to watch your favorite cooking or sports channel while reclining and relaxing on the bed!

You will absolutely feel like you are in a tropical paradise and you don't have to travel to the Caribbean!

This beach condo has stainless steel appliances, full size washer/dryer, fully equipped kitchen with everything furnished to make your perfect meal! Just bring the food!

One mile to Moody Gardens, and Schlitterbaun Water Park and the Strand Historic District for shopping and enjoyment is only 4 miles away.

This condo is SPACIOUS with a fantastic view of the ocean; located right by the seawall which is a great place to ride your bicycle or run your morning jog!

You will NOT easily forget your Galveston island vacation at our beach condo!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I am a retired nursing professor who taught at San Jacinto Community college for 32 years. I currently work part time as a home health nurse for Coram Health Care. I enjoy interacting with people and I find that renting my beach homes/condos still gives me that opportunity! I grew up in Victoria, Texas, graduated from Victoria High School, attended Victoria Community College for one year and then received my bachelor's degree in Nursing from Dominician College in Houston, Texas. I have a Master’s Degree in Science (University of Houston; Clear Lake Campus) and a Master’s Degree in Nursing from the University of Texas Health Science Center. I currently live in La Porte, TX by the ocean that I love so much!

Why the Owner Chose Galveston, TX, USA:
Our condo is close to all the attractions, One mile from Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn and has 2 great swimming pools, a heated spa and even a fitness center! There are community BBQ grills near the swimming pool areas. We are also 1 mile from the Galveston Convention Center! The management has a full time person to make sure the grounds are nicely kept and the swimming pools are ready year round. Our guests who have stayed at our condos always want to return, CAN'T SAY ANYTHING BETTER THAN THAT!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The ocean view from the entertainment room and the bedroom are AMAZING and the spacious double sinks with the large, modern glass enclosed shower in the master bathroom are unique and not easily found in other condos! I have traveled extensively and stayed in many expensive hotels and resorts and this condo's ocean view and location is among the best! I only needed to bring the outside ocean beauty inside which is proven by my guest reviews! I can't say enough about the great location - Schlitterbahn Water Park, Moody Gardens and the Galveston Convention Center are only 1 mile away. AND the Strand Historic District for shopping is only 4 miles away! Very conveniently located! We strive to provide superior furnishings to make your stay a resort experience!
