About Taz and Jay

We are private owners and have several condos at the Casa Del Mar. All the condos at the Casa Del Mar are privately owned. We prefer to take care of our own condos rather than let another company do it for us. We live nearby on the island if you need us for anything.

Taz and Jay purchased this condo in 2002

Why Taz and Jay chose Galveston

Our Lighthouse condo is one of several condos we have at the Casa Del Mar complex. The Casa Del Mar has 276 privately owned units. Casa Del Mar is located at the corner of 61st and Seawall Blvd right across the street from the Gulf of Mexico. Each condo has a great view of the Gulf of Mexico. This beach area is the sandy part of the beach and you can swim in the Gulf water.

Our Lighthouse condo offers a view of the Gulf of Mexico from your own private balcony patio and is near the front of the complex. Plus add the bonus of 2 sparkling pools. (One heated year round) and a picnic BBQ area if you want to grill dinner. Walking distance to several great restaurants too.

What makes this condo unique

Guest Reviews:

Absolutely wonderful.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The condo was exactly as described in the write up. It contains nice accommodations for sleeping along with a nice kitchen for use during your stay. The property was very well maintained and clean for our arrival. The WII and games were nice to have for entertainment while preparing meals, waiting for all to get ready to leave for the days adventures or simply to enjoy and unwind. The location is perfectly situated right across the road from the beach/ocean and within walking distance of many stores and shops including reasonably priced groceries and other necessities. The parking pass at the condo saved a lot of headache and money in trying to find somewhere to park to 'go to the beach'. The beach was so closely located that you could find a place on the beach and members of our group could return to the condo to start meals, get food, or other items. In addition, there is quick access to the road to get to other locations along either Seawall boulevard, or going on out to the Ferry to go to Bolivar Peninsula for excursion of other beaches and areas (and we got to see dolphins on the ferry ride); or back to the main land for other activities. Had a few minor questions upon arrival and Taz and Jay were very kind in answering them and also provided links to me in advance for finding activities upon arrival. We are very pleased with our choice of condos to stay and will plan to use this location again and their service when we go elsewhere.

Perfect location, nice room, owners were accessible, the cost was the icing on the cake!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was a dream come true. We walked to the beach fast and easy everyday we were there. The pool with shower was perfect for rinsing and relaxing afterwards.

Restaurants surround the place and can be reached quickly and easily. There is so much to do in Galveston, and you are centered perfectly to access all of it!

The supplies in the room were more than adequate for our needs and we prepared several meals in the room.

The in-wall bunk beds were the perfect size for my 9 and 10 year old sons. My wife even fit in the bunk bed and she’s 5-7”

This room was centered in the interior hall of the first floor which is directly above the ground floor parking area. There is a decent ocean view from the private back patio.

The Casa Del Mar itself was quiet and peaceful. The lobby has some good information about things to do if you get bored.

The 61st Street fishing pier is directly across the street as well and is open 24 hours a day for those with the fishing itch.

My family had an excellent time in galveston and we owe much of that to our accommodating hosts who shared their rental with us. The room was great, And the owners were always easy to reach and accomadated our special request quickly.

I highly recommend this room if you are considering Galveston on a budget.

Good location, but dirty

  • 2 of 5

Overall the unit seemed dirty & outdated and smelled of urine. The sofa & chair in the living room seemed very dirty & grungy making us hesitant to sit on them. The tub looked like it had not been cleaned anytime recently & the soap dispenser in the bathroom was empty.

We did like that we could walk across the street to the beach.

We enjoyed our stay at the lighthouse condo. It’s located in a perfect spot. Our first night we didn’t have to drive our car to go anywhere. The condo’s room temperature was perfect and it was cozy. A few personal suggestions would be to put a bigger tv in the bedroom and to replace towels(my husband said they were fine but like I said “personal suggestions”) I just think that they probably sit there awhile wet so they get that mildew smell. I only buy white towels so that I can bleach them and avoid those smells. Overall great stay!!

Oh yea, I’m already looking into buying a Vornado Fan. Thank you for having an extra fan in room that was a real treat. You’re actually the first place we’ve stayed at that has one. We had a great time in Galveston and we will definitely want to rent your place again in the future! Thank you!!!

Could’ve been cleaner...

  • 3 of 5

You could tell the owner/cleaners do not do a very thorough cleaning. Old water bottle in top bunk bed, used/nasty hairbrush inside couch, bottle caps under pull out couch, dirt/crumbs throughout, large cracks in bath tub. 2 rolls of toilet paper, 1 roll of paper towels for 5 nights for 4 people...not working too well. Also VERY loud. Noise from neighbors next to you & above, as well as AWFUL street noise.

Cozy condo perfect for a small family

  • 5 of 5

Very cozy condo near all the Galveston area attractions. Walk to the beach that is right across the street. Condo was clean and nicely decorated. The bbq area downstairs was a nice feature. There were at least 4 or 5 grills to use. Would recommend this condo and Casa Del Mar.
