The HOA is constantly changing the gate codes so please make sure you watch out for updates via email. You will need to register at the front office of the property and pay $20 for parking pass/pool passes for your stay.

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 Galveston

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.

This beach condo provides you with sparkling sunrises, calm 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. We are a few blocks from the Convention Center and under a minute drive to Moody Gardens. 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.

Nice condo - great owner!

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at this condo for extended weekend getaway. It was our first time in Galveston so we weren't really sure what to expect. Overall, the condo was very nice. The condo complex was well kept and clean.

The biggest plus was the way the owner went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable! She was very helpful and quick to respond to our questions.

The biggest drawback to the condo was the noise. The Master Bedroom and Living Room windows face the pool and the walls and windows seem to be incredibly thin. There were lots of people at the pool until late into the night and it sounded like they were in the room with us. We were also traveling with our 2 year old daughter and we basically had to hole up in the Master Bedroom in the evenings after we put her to bed because she could hear everything in the kitchen / living area (even over her white noise machine). It just didn't' seem that the building was insulated very well. You could hear everything through the walls - inside and out.

Otherwise, the condo was fairly well kept. It just seemed like it hadn't been looked in on in a while. It was clean - but could have been cleaner. It could have stood for a good deep cleaning and organizing. Kitchen cabinets were kind of a mess - stuff just piled in some - just wasn't ultra clean or organized. Several of the beach toys were broken, there were some stains on blankets / towels, etc. It was kind of a good middle of the road experience. I wouldn't say it was bad at all...just wasn't excellent.

Galveston in general....

We were fairly disappointed in the beaches. If you're going to the beach - I would say make the drive to Jamaica Beach. Sunny beach was very disappointing. We did enjoy eating dinner at Olympia Grill on Pier 21 and Yaga's on The Strand. Also La King's Candy Shop. Our main reason for coming to Galveston in the first place was to take our daughter to NASA. That was definitely worth the trip! We spent a whole day there and all thoroughly enjoyed it.

Cute condo close to beach.

  • 4 of 5

Good amount of space in condo. Very clean. Beach across the street is super convenient. Pools busy and didn't try them. Only small complaint was noise. Walls/windows thin and could hear kids screaming in pool until 11:30-12 most nights.
