About Renee Saur

I am originally from Tennessee, but have lived in Houston for the last 23 years. I love the beach. I am happy to be able to share my find of this beautiful condo in a quiet area of Galveston Island with others who want a relaxing place to spend a few days, a week or even a month on the Island.

Renee Saur purchased this condo in 2014

Why Renee Saur chose Galveston

It is difficult to find a comfortable place on the beach (no roads to cross) with such a beautiful view in Galveston. This is the one! It truly is perfect. You can walk 15 minutes to the west to Stewart Beach or 40 minutes to the East to Apfell park or the end of the Island. Even walk to Beach Town and have Sunday brunch at the Porch Café!

What makes this condo unique

This is a perfect location to get away from it all or just a short drive and you can be riding the rides on Pleasure Pier or water slides at Schlitterbahn or long walks on these quiet beaches. However you like to spend your time, you will find it here.

Great view, great condo

  • 4 of 5

We loved this little condo, especially the view from the balcony and very comfy bed. Renee is responsive to any needs, and the staff downstairs very friendly and helpful. The only caveat is same as any VRBO stay - what you pay per night is much higher than the advertised rate. With taxes, cleaning fee and whatever, we paid $218 per night, while the published rate is $145. This isn't Renee's fault, but you need to know before you book.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great stay! It's hard to get around the way the price is shown on the site for sure, and be competitive with other owners. Hope the 4 stars is for VRBO and not the condo :) Renee

Attention to detail made the stay amazing.

  • 5 of 5

We rent homes often in Galveston. This condo was clean, well kept, everything was in it's perfect place. The towels were soft, we had our choice in soft or firm pillows. She had beach chairs and kids toys in the closet. It was a very nice place to stay and I'm picky. The location was perfect, it was very quite and we did not have to deal with neighbors or riffraff being loud. This is a great location and we would stay here again.

Although the couch bed springs are broken and the sliding door is hard to close, this place is perfect. Even my children loved it. Staff was helpful. Pool was clean and warm. Beach was not crowded. Safe clean place to stay. We'll be back!
