About Bob Molis

Bob was born and raised on Galveston island. I [Maureen] traveled from Canada in 1977, recruited as an R.N. for old St. Mary,s Hospital. 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

Why Bob Molis chose Galveston

After an extensive search of the island for luxury,convenience,comfort and fabulous views,this space was the obvious location. As we stepped out on the balcony we knew we had arrived.

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.

Exactly as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was everything it said it was and more. So close to the beach and beautiful views. We loved that it wasn't in the middle of everything. Even on the weekend, the beach was not very crowded and there was lots of room to spread out and enjoy everything. There are lots of extra towels and beach towels provided.

Great Location, Clean and perfect for families but HOT

  • 2 of 5

Great Location, Clean and perfect for families, BUT the inability to control the air conditioner during our stay was extremely frustrating. The air conditioner was being remotely controlled the entire time and was continuously at 78 degrees which makes for a HOT and HUMID stay. Turnkey rentals were awesome in trying to help with resetting the thermostat only for it to be reprogrammed back 2-3 hours after they left. I understand the need for energy efficiency but when you are spending all day on the beach walking into a hot room is miserable. When renting It would be nice to be able to control the air to what is comfortable to my family.

Owner's Response: When we received a complaint on the A.C. a technician was immediately called out (even though it was well after business hours). The report I received from the professional Technician was that someone in the condo had tampered with the thermostat rendering it to be uncontrollable. This uncomfortable situation (according to professional A.C. technician) was due to the guest removing and tampering with the thermostat. The damage was repaired and now in working order.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The condo was clean and supplied us with everything we needed. We had a nice view of the ocean. There were two nice pools on the property . The location was good for getting to a variety of restaurants and stores. We highly recommend this condo. We hope to go back.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter wanted to take a mini-trip for her 13th birthday with 2 of her friends and she went online and found this property. In her words..."AMAZING CONDO". This was our first experience with a vacation rental home and it was a great experience. All the amenities of a luxury hotel, plus some.... We could sit on the balcony and see the ocean and the pool! And were minutes away from Moody Gardens and Pleasure Pier. We had a wonderful time! Thank you and we'll be back!

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect - great location on the sea wall, with shopping close by. If you are heading to Galveston, I recommend this condo. It was spotlessly clean and well appointed. Be sure and check out "The Spot" and the "Mosquito Cafe" for a great meal!
