About Maelia Davis

We are a family of 7 that likes to get away and enjoy the beach. We live in the Houston area so skipping over to our oceanfront condo at Galveston lets us get away from the bustle of the city and breathe in the fresh ocean air. We used to live in sunny southern California and the Seawall in Galveston reminds us of our years living, biking, skateboarding and surfing in Manhattan Beach, CA.

Maelia Davis purchased this condo in 2014

Why Maelia Davis chose Gulf Coast

This condo is perfectly situated between the entertaining, fun atmosphere over by the Pleasure Pier full of restaurants and bars just 2 miles away and the serenity and calmness of the less developed areas like Sunny Beach just 5 miles in the other direction. We love that we can walk across the Seawall and run, skateboard, bike ride, inline skate or just take a walk at sunset. With 5 kids ranging in age from 24 to 9 we love that we have Moody Gardens and Shlitterbahn within 5 minutes of the condo so that we can get the kids tired out! We also love that if we don't feel like going out to the sand, we can enjoy either one of the gorgeous big pools at The Dawn.

What makes this condo unique

Galveston Island is very diverse and has a little bit of something for everyone. This condo is perfectly situated to give you flexibility with regard to your choices on activities. Given that we are from Houston, it is also super easy to get to during the busy Summer Season being right off one of the exits from the freeway--no need to be in stop and go traffic on the Seawall.

Overall good

  • 4 of 5

The condo was great. Clean and comfortable. I had only two complaints. These are: the overwhelming smell of potpourri and the lack of curtains in both bedrooms to keep out the light. There are blinds, but those did little to darken the room. So bright, you could have read a book in there at night!

Thanksgiving in Galveston

  • 5 of 5

We had a great Thanksgiving weekend in Galveston. The kitchen was fine for reheating the Thanksgiving meal I ordered form the store and making a few side dishes. The table was big enough for us all to eat our feast. We enjoyed watching football on TV and comfortably slept 7 adults. Being from Seattle we enjoyed the warm weather and swimming in the ocean in November,

Very nice floor plan in this condo

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this condo. Manager was easy to work with. Clean, decorated very nice and was furnished with everything you should need. We loved that the bedrooms were at separate ends of the condo. Great for privacy.

The two long flights of stairs were quite a challenge for loading in and out but the view was amazing from the 3rd floor. We are night owls and we would have loved darkening shades , so we could have slept in. Overall it was great !

Fun Oceanfront Property

  • 5 of 5

I loved the location of the Condo. It was great how close it was to the beach and the pool was amazing. It felt like a home away from home and the decor is adorable. My parents loved every minute of it which was perfect since it was their 39th wedding anniversary. :-)

This place is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about how much we enjoyed this condo and Galveston getaway! The condo is clean and super spacious. It is equipped with everything you need, everything for the beach (chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, right down to shovels and pails). The second bedroom was so much space for two teenagers and even had games in the closet (the girls stopped playing on their phones to play battleship :) that was amazing. There is a Walmart right across the street so we pickup up snacks, fruit, and basic staples that we kept in the super clean kitchen. The condo is also pet friendly and our little Shitzu got beach walks every morning and night. Just cross the street and you are right on a great part of the beach. The community is gated so it is clean and safe. The pools are gorgeous and we sat outside on the patio all the time to view the pool and gaze right on to the ocean. Watching the sun rise and set was beautiful! It is just a couple of minutes to Moody Gardens where we had an amazing day (it does take all day!), also Schlitterbahn is right next door to Moody Gardens. We ate at some amazing restaurants that were recommended by the locals and had some great seafood! (driving down to the cruise line section has some super cool museums and Fisherman's Warf was an awesome restaurant). Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. had awesome food and we went to Pleasure Pier during the evening. They have tickets to just "walk on" so me and hubby did that and sat in rocking chairs as the ocean breeze cooled us, it wasn't over crowded and the girls road everything 2 and 3 times - we bought them "ride tickets") If you are looking for just a nice getaway with little stress this is a place you will love. Having a condo versus a hotel is so worth the money you save eating some meals in the totally stocked kitchen (pots, pans, coffee pot, utensils, plates, glasses EVERYTHING)! AND buying your own snacks and drinks is a cost saver too (beer and wine is available at the Walmart)! If your looking for a relaxing getaway we totally recommend this place! Just pack a bathing suit and a couple of pairs of shorts, it is super casual everywhere and laid back! You will not be disappointed if you book this condo, Have fun!

This beach condo provides you with sparkling sunrises, cam lapping waters, gentle gulf breezes just by opening your door. Every minute will feel like an island getaway because you are overlooking the seawall and the exhilarating waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

We are located 2 miles from the Pleasure Pier and 5 miles from white sands and surf of Sunny Beach. But you don't need to go farther than a few steps to enjoy the sand and surf of the Seawall.

Our amenities include two resort style pools with a waterfall and fitness center overlooking the ocean so a workout can feel less like work. Over $1 million was spent in common area renovations and includes lush tropical landscaping as well as common grilling area.

Whether you want to just stroll along the Seawall and enjoy the wonderful restaurants by the ocean or if you want to live it up at all the bars and clubs on the Island, the condo is in the perfect location for both. If fun and adventure and family is what you're looking for, with Schlitterbahn and Moody Gardens less than 5 minutes away, you have loads of fun at your fingertips. The gated community provides safety and privacy from an Island bustling with visitors during peak season. All gates and doors use codes to minimize any worries at the beach or at the pool about losing a key.
