Fantastic condo. The pictures don't do it justice.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a Friday and stayed for a long weekend. The condo was clean and beautiful. The beds are very comfortable and the balcony is great. Love the bathroom setup. It really worked for our family. The next time we go to Galveston, I will try to book this same condo. Cissi was quick to answer questions and provided lots of information for our stay. We have rented other condos both in Galveston and other vacation areas...this was the best.

Nice condo and well equipped for a nice relaxing visit.

  • 4 of 5

The condo was neat, clean, quiet and had lovely views to make it perfect for a family get a way. It is very close to the beach and has beautiful pools and grounds with grills and picnic areas. Parking was an added bonus and very convenient.

Cissi was very helpful with the wonderful previsit information. Spot on with recommendations for dining choices and activities to make our visit remarkable. Thank you!

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean and in great condition. Parking was easy. The elevator gave us problems some, but not enough to make us not want to stay there again.

Great place to stay, beautiful, well kept, like a resort.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place to stay! Had a balcony that overlooked the pool (which we all loved!) The information she sent with our confirmation email was super helpful, it gave us all the information about the resort/apartment and the area, both the tourist part and her own thoughts and experiences around the island. That was super nice. We would definitely stay there again!

Only complaints (and they are minor): Sheets on main bed were too small for the deep mattress, by morning you were on the mattress and sheet was wadded up.

Toilets were easily clogged.

Table had stuff spilled all over it, like cleaning just forgot to wipe it off.

Complaints that have absolutely nothing to do with this property: We were down there during Tropical Storm Cindy, it was overcast windy, and rained the whole time! Electric went out for 13 hours, things got pretty hot and humid. Got to go on the beach twice for 15 minutes each while it was getting dark. Moved all the cushions from the balcony furniture in and stacked the furniture because I was worried it would fly away! Was interesting but typical for our family vacations!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking care of the patio cushions. Luckily just a mild storm. I will definitely tell the cleaning service about the table and will not use those sheets. They must be the new ones I thought I bought with a deep pocket . Sounds like you had a great time despite the weather. thanks again for your input and help! Cissi
