About Jessika or Nickole

I manage and own this home for my family. Our family is from Houston. I currently live 30 min away from Galveston. It is my pleasure to share with others our vacation home in order to build memory's of their own, as our family has in the past. It is in the up most importance for my guest to feel welcomed and comfortable during their visit. I'm always directly available to my guest in order to fully accommodate any specials needs, request or questions. This allows my guest to always feel like their home away from home with a luxury VIP touch!

Jessika or Nickole purchased this condo in 2006

Why Jessika or Nickole chose Gulf Coast

This property is our family vacation home. This was the perfect place as a family to enjoy time away from the city. We choose to find something that would accommodate each individual in a traditional family. This included options ranging from relaxation in huge hot tub or balcony lounging, entertainment in game room or movie room, or a family BBQ pool side. But on top of it all. It provides the most spectacular views of the Island and its Beaches.

What makes this condo unique

This unit is one floor over the pool deck area, which provides a 180 view point over the entire area. While also getting a perfect view the Sea wall Blvd strip and ocean views, which always begins and ends with a majestic sunset. Also from the balcony you can clearly view a perfect site of fire works during the Fourth of July by the moody gardens each year, or enjoy the colorful lights from Pleasure Pier nightly.

Emerald by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

There were 4 of us staying here over the weekend and we really enjoyed our stay. The check in process was quick and easy and Jessika met us in the parking garage and she didn't even know what time we were going to arrive. We were about 30mins later than we said we would be there. We were worried about not being able to use the first come first serve grill and the sitting areas around the pool but most nights and days we had the pool and the grill to our selves. The heating element was out on the pool so we didn't do much swimming because the water was a little cold even during the day when it was 80 something outside (that was a bummer). I was in the bedroom over looking the pool and one floor above the pool and in most cases that would be AWESOME but they don't ever turn the pool lights off (the lights in the pool or around the pool) and we had a glow in the room all night I thought I was back on the Alaskan Cruz that I took 8yrs ago where it never got dark. They must keep them on for a safety reason is all I can think of because you cannot swim after 10:30pm. I would also recommend that you shut the curtain in the shower window because the people at the pool can see your silhouette even with the distorted glass. It was a great place to stay and we are thinking about booking it again next year. It was located away from all the rally activity but within walking distance of everything (

Wonderful Stay

  • 4 of 5

This condo is in a great location with amazing views! Everything was extremely clean and just what you see in the pictures. Emerald by the Sea was a very quiet place and seemed to be a very safe condo. The only thing better than the condo was the service provided by Jessika and Nikole! We will definitely stay here in the future.

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just enjoyed a mini-vacation with a long weekend at this condo with our small family. Everything was just as described and clean and welcoming. The owner was extremely accommodating and helpful and always with a prompt response. The Emerald is ideally located for easy access to Stewart Beach, local restaurants and even walkable to Pleasure Pier. The East End is lively and active. The condo overlooks the pool and I was concerned there might be a lot of noise however the people staying at the Emerald and using the pool were mostly families with small children or senior citizens and it was never too loud. We appreciate most the ability to have the owner so accessible. thanks to Jessika for a fun family vacation. We had a great time. I would recommend this condo to others.

Best Owner Interaction I have ever Experienced, and a Fantastic Property!

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed with the level of communication from both Nikole and Jessika. It was far better than many other VRBO rentals I have used. We arrived late, and they made all the arrangements for us to check in after hours. The Emerald is a top notch facility and offers many amenities you will not find at other places. My kids always had something to do, including the fabulous pool, game room with foosball, billiard table, puzzles, and a movie theater. I BBQ'd several times at the pool grill. This unit has the best location possible at the Emerald. I would book it above other units without the same great view or location. It is right above the pool, so my mom could sit on the large patio and watch us in the pool. The pool has many great chairs, and even some couches in shaded areas. The condo was well appointed with everything we needed. We stayed in and cooked many of our meals, which was a huge money saver.

Don't hesitate to book this property, the views and location are amazing, and all the "little things" are there also. It makes for a frustration-free rental, which isn't always the case when renting from people you do not know. And above all, the owners are top notch.

Happy Vacationing!

Good Location

  • 3 of 5

Location was good. The condo is located on the seventh floor and overlooks the outdoor pool on the 6th floor and Steward Beach across the street. We were there 4th of July weekend and could view the fireworks at the pier from the condo terrace. The condo furnishing are a little dated. There is no hairdryer so you will need to bring your own. The tub in the second bedroom had no shower. The 2nd bedroom has no windows. The TVs mounted on the bedroom walls have 13"in screens but who comes to the beach to watch TV.
