About Sundeep (Sunny) Chahal

We live in Humble, 2 kids in Elementary School I work as a Physical Therapist in a skilled nursing facility in the East Houston area and my wife is a dentist in Humble. I graduated from Angleton High School in 94' and from Texas A&M University in 98'.

Sundeep (Sunny) Chahal purchased this condo in 2014

Why Sundeep (Sunny) Chahal chose Gulf Coast

With both of us having demanding careers and limited vacation time, we wanted a place close to Houston where we could get away and relax on weekends. It takes us an hour to get to our Condo from where we live and our kids love Schlitterbahn and the beach. We would like to offer this property to others as a rental as a low cost/high value alternative to chain motel/hotels.

What makes this condo unique

The views from the 24 foot wide covered balcony, watching the colors on the water during sunset and sunrise. Pelicans and seagulls soar right by you at eye level from the 10th floor. You can often view dolphins following the boats from the balcony. Very open flow from the front door/kitchen to the balcony, great for entertaining and spending time with the family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed the condo and the great views it offered - gorgeous sunrise and sunsets. The kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms were adequately stocked. Great vacation. Great location. Thank you Sunny!

Great getaway and true beachfront

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights over Thanksgiving. The location was perfect, the desk people at By the Sea were very friendly, and the view was wonderful. I loved being able to just walk across the road to the beach. The place had everything we needed, parking was simple, & it was nice to use their carts to haul your things up and down. A nice & relaxing getaway.

Convenient location with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't be happier with our stay at this condo. The location was very convenient, price was reasonable, and you really cannot beat the views offered from the living room and bedroom balconies. There's nothing quite like being able to wake up and see the sun rising over the gulf just feet away! Sunny was very friendly, helpful, and went out of his way to make sure that we knew he was available if we needed anything at all. Definitely recommend this condo to anyone looking for a Galveston getaway!

Excellent. Exactly as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was excellent. Condo very clean, comfortable and well stocked. Beautiful view of the beach. Sunny provided excellent customer service and was very prompt in responding to emails. Front desk personnel were very friendly and helpful. Very close to Landry's and Rain Forest cafe. Would stay here again as well as recommend to anyone else.

Great location, great view, comfortable beds and had everything we needed.

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The description was accurate and the property was well-maintained. Being able to walk right across the street to a lovely beach was a plus. Sunny provided excellent customer service, and the employees at the property were all pleasant and helpful. I have only one negative item to report: the water pressure is not very good. I have three constructive suggestions: 1) Clean and refresh the ceiling air vents in bathrooms; 2) Revise the instructions for the Living Room TV/Blue-Ray/Netflix systems remote controls, as the current instructions are very confusing, and we could not figure out how to operate anything except the TV with the current instructions. 3) Consider investing in a more comfortable sofa. These observations would not hinder me from staying there again, and I would not hesitate to recommend this property to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing our condo and for your suggestions for improvement. I will be buying another universal remote (the old one messed up) so that I can consolidate the functions of the 3 remotes back into one universal remote again. The coach is 2 years old so I will try to get more life out of it if I can maybe one or two more years if feasible. And yes I will definitely clean out the a/c vents in the bathrooms thanks for bringing that to my attention.

Not fancy but comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The property has a great view from the 10th floor. Furniture is basic but comfortable. Kitchen facilities are good with at least the minimum necessary things needed for cooking, glasses and dishes. I do warn that getting in and out of the tubs can be difficult for seniors or impaired adults. Parking is good and the staff was very helpful.
