About the property

1 queen + futon, 1 bath on the beach. Perfect for couples, families. Sleeps 3-4.

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!

PS: More people coming to the beach? We have two more condos in this complex. Please call for details.

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.

Great view!

  • 4 of 5

Super nice view with plenty of room for 4. This corner condo is one of the best locations in the building. We never had any problems with noise, etc. Owner indicated in the welcome binder that they will be updating it soon. Once the updates are done it will be amazing! The bedroom is large and the couch is a fold out bed. We did bring an extra blanket from home and our own beach towels, which I recommend. The pool was heated, which was nice since it was suddenly cold outside during our visit. Owner was very responsive and easy to work with. Thank you!

Very Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for three nights and enjoyed the "down" time. We loved the location on the East Beach and spent most of our time on the balcony. We found the condo just as it was described and clean. There were dishes and such in the kitchen and even though we chose to eat out, it appeared to have most of what would be needed to cook a meal. Ms. Barbara was very easy to work with and we intend to return soon.

Peaceful getaway with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful two days at this place and it's now our favorite Galveston destination! The unit was small and cozy...just right for the two of us. We loved the corner unit with a window to see even more, and the balcony views are can honestly watch the sun rise while laying in bed. Can't wait for another opportunity to go back and relax on the beautifully quiet beach!

Clean with a great view.

We chose this corner condo to increase the viewing perspective of the gulf. The unit was clean and provided lots of kitchen utensils for cooking. My family will be back soon for another stay at Islander East!

This condo has an amazing view of the ocean. We loved it that the beach was right out the door and only a very short walk away. It is peaceful and quiet. It was fun watching all of the boats going in and out of the harbor. We highly recommend this one.
