About Janell; owner of Hapel's Happy Place

I've always dreamed of owning a place on the beach. I've rented from others for years and finally decided to make my dream a reality.

Janell; owner of Hapel's Happy Place purchased this condo in 2014

Why Janell; owner of Hapel's Happy Place chose Gulf Coast

On the sand with great views and amenities. When I go to the beach, I like to get away from 'city' life so the east end is perfect since it's 'on the sand' and not 'across the street' from the beach.

What makes this condo unique

Get away from hectic life and not worry about anything. Great amenities.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this condo. This was one of the best units we have stayed in. Love the open living area. The master bedroom and bath were perfect. The second bedroom was very comfortable. The bath was the best of all the other units we had stayed in. It was beautifully decorated. The view of the ocean was wonderful. We are looking forward to returning next year.

Thanks for a wonderful time.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I considered not leaving a review for our stay out of fear is that everyone will find out how perfect this place is and it will be booked solid for years, but alas, my conscience got the better of me and I knew I had to spill the beans, so here it goes... YOU WILL NOT FIND A MORE PERFECT LOCATION IN ALL OF GALVESTON THAN THIS! Don't even get me started on how well-equipped the unit is. The kids played board games and watched DVD movies, we cooked every meal (except for 2 evenings out because we can't resist the fresh fish down on Pier 21!) in a kitchen that lacked for nothing, we sat on the balcony and watched ships sailing (BECAUSE YES, THERE'S EVEN BINOCULARS IN THE UNIT!!!), and we were able to keep our favorite beach clothes washed and dried right there in the room! It is honestly like having your very own beach home, with the addition of what is quite possibly the friendliest, most accommodating staff on the island. The Galvestonian makes this perfect unit even more perfect if that is even possible... (Not exactly sure what adjective comes after perfect, but I would insert it here if I knew.) The grounds are impeccably manicured, the pool and hot tub are clean and accessible, there is ample complimentary parking, and you can stroll leisurely to the beach without fear of getting flattened crossing 4 lanes of lunatic drivers on Seawall Blvd! So to summarize, if you are looking for a sparkling clean, incredibly equipped, modern, spacious place, with nothing but an ocean breeze between your bedroom balcony and an uncrowded beach, and a welcoming, friendly staff that will bend over backwards for you, this is where you need to stay. Period. All I ask is that you leave a couple of weeks open for us next year! Thank you for sharing your "Happy Place" with our family!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review (and risk your future availability of time--lol). I appreciate all the wonderful comments and feedback. I agree the staff is incredible. When I first started staying there (before I bought), I was always impressed with the staff and the beauty of the grounds. Love the comment about the four lanes of lunatic drivers. When I bought, that was top of my list...no road between me and the beach! Glad you found my condo well-equipped. Like your family, I eat lots of my meals there when I stay because I love hanging out on the balcony but I too can't resist going out at least once or twice for all the great choices of restaurants. Look forward to hosting you next year. Discount for repeat guests.

Great location and condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four visited for a long weekend in April. The unit itself is great, fully updated and has everything you would need to enjoy the area. The building itself is very nice, the Galvestonian staff are polite and attentive, and location is unbeatable - direct access to the beach, and a short drive to the attractions. We cannot wait to come back again!

Perfect accommodations with beach front view

  • 5 of 5

The condo was absolutely perfect for my wife and I. We loved how it has been remodeled, especially the open large kitchen because we like to cook healthy meals while on vacation. We also really liked its location in the Galvestonian. Very quite being on the end away from the pool and amazing views of the ocean and watching the ships on the horizon from everywhere in the condo. We found ourselves enjoying the balcony a lot also. We hope to be returning to this one many times.

Owner's Response: Come back! I find there is some strange time warp on the balcony. I go out there and next thing I know it's hours later. I love watching the ships. I even installed an app on my phone that lets me get the details of their cargo and the ship's information. I find it fascinating. Thanks for writing a review.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Unit was clean, cozy, beautifully decorated and nothing was overlooked. It was exactly as pictured when we booked. The owner is obviously very thoughtful. The staff at the condo were all very nice and I have to say, we wanted for nothing. The beach is beautiful and so easily accessible. The pool is perfect.

We are definitely up for returning. Thank you so much for a great place to vacation.

Lovely facility, condo and view

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed at this condo to celebrate our birthdays. We enjoyed reading on the balcony, sitting by the pool and walking along the beach. We were first attracted to this property for its location to the beach and city activities. The bonus was the layout and lovely décor of the condo. We could not have asked for more. Our thank you to the owner and to the friendly and very helpful staff.
