About Doug Oliver

My wife and I are middle age professionals living in Oklahoma, but we spend as much time in Galveston as possible. We maintain a home at this property in addition to our rentals.

Doug Oliver purchased this condo in 2014

Why Doug Oliver chose Gulf Coast

We have rented many condos at many beaches over the years. It finally dawned upon us that nobody has a better idea of what makes a good beach vacation than we do. We selected and prepared this property to try and help others achieve that near perfect beach get-a-way. We check on this property frequently and constantly upgrade or repair/replace anything needed.

What makes this condo unique

I will make sure any renter has the ability to reach us and pledge our best efforts at solving any reasonable problems.

Our place was perfect for two friends for Christmas. We invited family and friends and four adults and 2 children spent most of one day with us there. There was more than enough room for us to enjoy a meal together. We cooked twice. Outside is also lovely secluded and has great immunities.

Fabulous property, lush landscaping

  • 4 of 5

The condo was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Spotlessly clean.I called the owner at 9:00 p.m. I was confused about the wifi. He was most helpful and very friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

We rented bikes, which was fun, however most of the bikes needed air in the tires. Most were low or flat.

Enjoyed all the amenities. Tennis, pool, hot tub, clean beach.

Would have been a five if there were any type of food on site, breakfast buffet, small restaurant, When you get here you don't want to leave.

Galvestonian is the best condominium complex on Galveston island

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about the Galvestonian! The friendly staff, the gorgeous setting, the clean beaches, the lovely surrounding areas. We kept saying that we didn't feel like we were in Galveston. The setting is so much nicer than the busy sea wall area with the resorts across the busy street. Beach items were readily available for guests - towels, sun screen, bug spray (which wasn't needed), continental breakfast (a surprise), sand and water toys, wagons to pull your belongings to the beach, hammocks, and nice outdoor lounge area, a fire pit for night time enjoyment, picnic area with grills and grilling supplies. I wish the hot tub would be open after 10 PM on the weekends. The unit was nice and also well equipped. We saw many families enjoying time together - grandparents, parents, children. The setting was perfect!

Perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a beach resort experience within a drivable distance (I live in Dallas) to celebrate my birthday with my family. The Galvestonian fit the bill -- nice layout, private, very well maintained, amenities such as a coffee bar, friendly front desk, gorgeous pool, and directly on the beach. As far as the unit, we loved it - very nicely decorated with a beachy vibe, comfortable beds, plenty of bathroom towels and even small bottles of shampoo, etc. I had forgotten a blow dryer and was very pleased to find one in the bathroom drawer. Hands down the best part of the unit was the amazing view of the beach from both the master bedroom and the living area. I found the owner to be friendly, responsive, and a pleasure to deal with. Great experience!

Awesome Galveston condo

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the condo. The condo is very pretty, well equipped, and well maintained. There is an amazing view of the beach and pool from the balcony. The staff at the front desk of the Galvestonian is very friendly and helpful. The condo owner is very nice and available for information about the area. We will definitely stay here again.
