Over the years we have come to appreciate the natural beauty and historic gifts that Galveston has to offer.Our interest in travel and photography has allowed us to experience many types of accommodations. We have found vacation rentals to be affordable, and the best way to appreciate the culture and activities of the destination. Bob and I through our condo, would like to extend this opportunity to other travelers.

Bob Molis purchased this condo in 2011

What makes this condo unique

After an extensive search of the island for the ideal property that provides luxury,convenience,comfort and a fabulous view ,this space was the obvious choice.As we stepped out on the balcony we knew we had arrived. We pictured ourselves sitting on the balcony with a cup of coffee watching the sun rise,or a glass of wine at sunset as the last rays of the sun danced on the waves.

The interior of this space has much to offer as well. The decor is anchored in granite counter tops,superior tile work and stainless steel appliances.Furniture is attractive,modern and comfortable.The art pieces are peaceful and include our Thomas Kinkade collection as well as a restful water theme.This is a property that will make you fall in love with all that Galveston has to offer, as well as all that life and family has to offer.

Great family vacation condo!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a fantastic 5 night stay. The condo is exactly as described. It’s updated nicely and has a great view to the beach from the back balcony. The kiddos were able to swim in the large pool after coming in from the beach. We cooked dinners almost each night so plenty of cookware, table settings etc. It also has a good cable package so we even managed a couple of family movie nights. Bob, the owner, was super fast at answering any questions we had. And we were able to do several loads of laundry as the washer/dryer worked great. This is a terrific condo and we will stay here again when we go back. Thanks Bob!

We did not realize that there was an additional $20 parking fee until we arrived on site.

Lovely condo with great location!

  • 5 of 5

Three adults spent four very comfortable days here. The condo is well-furnished with everything we needed. Even the kitchen had decent supplies for cooking a meal. The view from the front balcony more than made up for the two flights of stairs with no elevator. It was clean and comfortable - even a decent wifi connection, which was important in my case. The property is also very nice with two pools and easy access to the beach. We would be happy to return here some day!

We really love the condo. Beach view was amazing

  • 4 of 5

Condo was clean, it has everything that you need. Plenty of towels.

Owner was very helpful and answered his phone right the way the two times that I had to call him because I didn’t know how to use the front door lock. Location was perfect for our family.

The reason why I’m giving a 4 is because the mattresses were in bad shape. If they change them , I’ll stay there again. Also , we had to set the AC at 72 and still the guest bedroom was warm.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Our A.C. system is a fairly new system (about 16 months). We will have the HVAC company over to adjust the air distribution. The mattress are on schedule to be changed out soon.

Condo is just as advertised: Spacious, with beach front views and private pool. I appreciated the stocked kitchen utensils with all the necessary pots and pans. Overall this trip was great. I would definitely come back to this condo in the future.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was very well kept and up to date. I was impressed with how clean it was, how well stocked it was, and how nice all the updates were. The location was great. We had an easy walk to the beach. The condo has a great view. Owner was very responsive to questions. The only issues we had:

one of the two pools was closed half of the time we were there.

You have to pay $20 a car to park in addition to what you already paid for the condo.

The back bedroom had a difficult time cooling. But we just cranked the a/c down at night.

Overall we greatly enjoyed our trip and will definitely recommend this condo to friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, your comments are helpful to us. The pools are getting some heavy use this time of the year and it is necessary for the health of all guest that the maintenance dept. keeps a close eye on the chemistry of the water. The parking fee is applied to all guest at the dawn and it actually helps to keep the crowds down in the parking lot and the recreation areas and creating a more pleasant stay for our guest. Our condo has a completely new air conditioning system. We will certainly have the HVAC company come back out and adjust the air flow to that back room.
