Property description

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!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

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.

Why the Owner Chose Galveston, TX, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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.
