Car: Not Necessary

Galveston is located near everything but secluded from all the hustle of downtown Houston. Pleasure Pier has been open a year. Tangier outlet malls are 25 minutes away up I-45 north. Downtown is 45-55 minutes. Kemah boardwalk is 30 minutes away. Tons of information is at the condo and also at the Property office. It's easy to relax here or stay very busy... Galveston is a great resource also.

Jamaica beach is 10 miles west and has a couple of great restuarants, plus it's a nice drive.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: For 17yrs. we lived in the great state of Texas. In 2013 my husband took a military tour that now has us living in Saudi Arabia. Before we left we wanted to keep a home away from home in Galveston. Friends of ours loved it here and we do too! Rick left in May and then I closed on the condo in June and the boys and I stayed there till we moved to Saudi. We still have a little spot in Texas and our hearts will always be there...we decided to share it with others. Hopefully you will find everything you need here at 'Mermaid Cove' ... When we return for visits... Galveston Island will be our first stop. The 14 years we lived in north Houston going to Galveston was a retreat that was close by. The Texas gulf coast is a great place to visit...It's unlike any other beach town.

Why the Owner Chose Galveston, TX, USA:
Visiting Galveston is unique... It's a sleepy little beach town with a great family friendly atmosphere!!! Hopefully, since we lived there we managed to make sure you have everything you need!
