About Cindy & Rick

For 17yrs. we lived in the great state of Texas. In 2013 my husband took a military tour that had 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 decided to share it with others. Hopefully you will find everything you need here at 'Mermaid Cove' ... We still like to get down to the island for some quit beach time and there are lots of great restaurants on the island. From beach casual to fine dining. 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 Galveston

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!

Great Gulf Views!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for our stay. The sleeper sofa and convertible couch were great and comfy with the extra padding. We had no trouble finding what we needed to cook and it was great to have a washer and dryer to do a load of laundry. Highly recommended.

Wonderful views and comfortable and clean condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! We booked on short notice due to change in plans and Cindy and Rick were quick to reply to all of our questions. The condo was very kid friendly and as we have a 7 and 4 year old so that is important. The condo was clean and very well stocked. My kids loved sleeping on the trundle couch.

The view is amazing! We have stayed at The Dawn before in another unit so we already knew the layout of the grounds.

We can’t wait until our next visit! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Amazing & Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had booked this condo because of the location, wonderful reviews, and how homey it looked and we are so glad we did!!

The owners were absolutely AMAZING and accommodating. The condo was roomy and had everything you would need to really relax and have a carefree vacation. They truly make this place feel like home away from home. The view from the balcony looked out onto the board walk and the ocean which was peaceful.

We are hoping to make this a yearly trip and we all agreed we will continue to stay at the Mermaid Cove!!

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

The property is very well kept. The pools are very nice. The parking is great! The unit was very nice and comfortable. We had everything we needed and more. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, nor better owners to rent from. We will definitely be back.

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.
