About Cindy & Rick

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.

Cindy & Rick purchased this condo in 2013

Why Cindy & Rick chose Gulf Coast

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!

Nice condo. Very clean and had everything we needed. Good view and close to pool area. Stairs were a bit challenging with all the bags and cooler with food. Beach was nice and clean. Close to everything we needed. Older property needs a little upkeep on outside.

Beautiful Retrreat with the Kids

  • 5 of 5

The place looked immaculate. Clean and well stocked. We had everything we needed there. We especially love the decor. You know your at the beach. Centrally located on the seawall so there is plenty to do with the grand kids who we took with us this time around. Plenty of room and sleeping arrangement for 6. We ad 7 with a 2 year old and there still was plenty of room. Loved the King size bed. Very nice sleep on that bed and the Kids enjoyed all the extra's in the house for them. Very nice kitchen. Loved my mornings on the balcony with my coffee watching the seagulls dive bomb for fish. . Such a nice view of the ocean and pool. The kids loved the pool and ours were old enough to let go down by themselves. You can watch them from the balcony to keep a check on them. Cindy was very helpful with suggestions of things to do, and always kept good communications with us. We will definitely rent this place again...and again. I highly recommend this Home away from home!

Great location and comfy condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very comfy, fully equipped and at a great location. Walk across the street to the beach, easy on and off the island, shopping and restaurants so close.

Nice condo on the Seawall

  • 5 of 5

Took a quick trip down to Galveston for a long weekend. The condo is located toward the western end of the seawall. It was very clean and well appointed, with everything you'd need for a pleasant stay. Although it is only 1 bedroom, there was adequate sleeping space for up to 6 people, with a pull out sofa and another that makes into a trundle bed. Plenty of utensils, towels, pillows, blankets, etc. Close to everything the seawall, the strand and the island has to offer. You can walk across the street to enjoy the beach or cool off in the resort style swimming pool that the balcony overlooks. This was not a problem for us, but the condo is located on the 3rd floor, so there are some stairs involved. Not sure if there was an elevator, as we did not need one nor did we look for one. There were plenty of games and movies for the kids. Best part was probably dealing with the owners. Very responsive and informative and easy to communicate with. We highly recommend this place for your next vacation.

Thanks Cindy for sharing your beautiful place with us! And please tell your husband we appreciate his service to our country!

Nearest Airport
25 Miles
Hobby Airport
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.
