About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath on the beach. Perfect for couples and families.

If your idea of the perfect vacation is watching a Gulf sunrise from the comfort of bed, our beachfront condo is for you!

The condo is a completely redecorated efficiency that sleeps two on a handcrafted Murphy bed, and either one adult, or two kids, on a futon.

The beach is right outside the lobby, just a short stroll across a walkover protecting the natural area. There's no busy Seawall Blvd. to navigate.

The entire condo has been freshly painted in sand and moss colors, accented in aqua and orange. Features include a new floor, new bathroom vanity, new drapes, new dishwasher, all new dishes/glasses/flatware, new lighting, new dining table and chairs, marble backsplashes... basically, a complete makeover!

Best part? This sixth-floor condo is located on a corner, like our other unit down the hall. The view is spectacular! You can see down the beach for miles from the front balcony, and yes, you can watch the sun rise over the Gulf from the comfort of bed. From the side window, watch birds in the protected natural area, along with cruise and cargo ships entering the harbor. We've provided a spotting scope for your use, so no squinting needed!

When you're ready to eat, the fully-stocked kitchen includes range, fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Of course there's a blender for frosty beverages. Two gas grills outside the lobby are also available.

Our complex, Islander East, is on East Beach, one of the prettiest, quietest beaches in Galveston. The complex has a heated pool and lighted tennis courts, as well as shuffleboard.

On the tech front, we offer password-protected wifi, so you can stay in touch securely. When you're not on the beach, relax with the 32' flat-screen TV.

Come visit soon!

About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2012

Why The Owner chose Gulf Coast

We own the corner condo at the end of the hall, so when this unit --the other corner condo -- became available, we jumped. The views up and down the beach are amazing. Having all the windows makes the condo feel open and airy.

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 the balcony, wine in hand, soaking up the view in the Gulf breeze. The changing color of the sky at sunrise is wonderful -- even from bed.

Perfect place for a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for the 2 of us, cozy, quiet, and away from the tourist traffic. The view of the ocean from the balcony was amazing and access to the private beach is just a few steps out the lobby door. The place was spotless and ready for us on arrival, all we had to do was change into our flip-flops. Barbara is a very thoughtful owner and we will definitely book one of her units on our next visit. We are already planning our 2017 visit!

Quiet and Peaceful -- and WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5

Husband and I wanted a quiet restful place to get away from the stress. This was just the place! It is small, but cozy. The view of the ship channel and the Gulf of Mexico was wonderful. We spend most of our time watching the boats, the beach and the birds. Being on the east beach was so wonderful - away from the sounds of traffic. But close enough to great food and entertainment. I so enjoyed seeing the sunrises from the balcony. Would definitely come back for some R&R. Barbara was so easy to work with and the instructions for the condo were great. Highly recommend for a quiet get away for a couple.

Owner's Response: We mis-communicated with our housekeeper, and unfortunately, the condo wasn't ready when these guests arrived. We did find another unit for them, and we're glad the overall visit turned out well.

A wonderful getaway with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 2-year old daughter stayed here for our first trip to the beach with our little one. The condo was exactly what we needed. Just the right size for the three of us, well decorated, cozy, practical, and best of all, with a spectacular view! I could have sat on that patio all day and night, just watching the waves, the boats, the birds. The most beautiful surprise of all was seeing the full moon rise above the water. It is a perfect place for a romantic getaway, too, and I can't wait to come back with just my husband. Access to the beach is easy and the beach itself was quiet and clean. The staff at the Islander East was very helpful. It is a great location, too - away from the busy-ness of the sea wall, but close enough that it was easy to find places to eat and shop. Barbara was incredibly efficient, kind, responsive, and easy to work with. Overall, a wonderful experience and we can't wait to come back!

Wonderful weekend in paradise

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this place. My daughter and I both agree to come back next Summer. The place is clean and feels like home as soon as you walk in the door. Everyone we met was friendly. The balcony had the most beautiful view, I could have sat there the whole weekend. We also recommend eating at Fish Tails across from the pier 😋򒰠Big thank you to Barbara for sharing her piece of paradise - Amy and Heather Groff/ Farmersville
