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!

Sunny, the condo was so cute.. we were amazed by all the little extras you made available with our time there. The kids used the boogie boards in the pool. We used your bigger cooler to take with us to the beach as ours was slightly smaller and without wheels. We had expected the coffee maker but didn't realize you would even furnish the coffee! There was so much that you had suplied that we had packed just because we weren't expecting it to be there already. We are looking forward to coming again next year. Thanks again!

Owner's Response: Thank you Lori for taking time to write a review of your stay I am glad you and your family enjoyed your stay in Galveston and yes sometimes the small things like supplies and pantry items can make a difference in a short stay I've had quite a few guests who have wrote complements in appreciation about that and I will definitely continue that. I just replaced the boogie boards as they are cracked (not from you they were cracked earlier in the summer)and also thank you so much for taking Great care of the property and really going above and beyond what most guests would do. Let me know when you plan to come next year and remind me that you were a prior guest and I will definitely give you a discount on your return stay.

Amazing location, great cozy family retreat

  • 5 of 5

Sunny had everything we needed besides beach towels. It was my wife and I in the room with balcony access and my 4 year old and 6 year old in the master. Comfortable thermostat. Amazing panoramic views. Kitchen was fully stocked. Swam in the pool in the am daily to take advantage of cooler water temperatures and shade. Enjoyed the beach right across the seawall for the rest of each day. Nice sand and not too crowded. Cooked using the grill by the pool one night. Sunny was super helpful and accommodating is with a package that was accidentally in his mailbox. He also checked in to make sure everything was going smoothly and to make sure no other needs. Enjoyed great sunrises every morning from the balacony. Awesome pelican watching. And cocktails on the balcony by the moonlit surf at night. Great TV options for the kids to decompres and relax after fun days at the beach. Thanks for a great stay.

Home-away-from home!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean, neat, and roomy. It was like being at home. Waking up to the sight and sounds of the beach each day made it even more enjoyable. Thank you for making this vacation such a memorable one.

Nice and clean property, comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

Everything at the condo was very nice and clean and in good working order, the front door was a little hard to get into because the door sticks, but it wasn't a big problem. Thank you Sunny for checking in with us!

Nice Remodel

  • 4 of 5

On the 10th floor this condo offers great views of the beach and the water. Owners have done a great job of remodeling. Nice public laundry room on the 1st floor. Lots of good restaurants nearby. Free ferry is only 5 minutes away. On the downside: no water pressure in the kitchen sink. No good lighting in the kitchen. Living room furniture could be updated with better quality pieces. Also the balcony needs better chairs and tables.The inexpensive plastic pieces are not comfortable and really cheapen the condo. One thing the owners have no control over is the "old" smell in other parts of the building. This makes for a bad first impression.

Owner's Response: Thank you Roxanne for your feedback and for taking time to write the review I will have my maintenance person go look at the lights it is on a dimmer switch. I don't know if it was in advertently switch low or if there were some lightbulbs out but normally with the dimmer switch all the way unless there were some bulbs fused there is more than sufficient light . As for the faucet I will also have him look at that sometime some sediment build ups under the spout and That can reduce pressure. As for the furniture it was purchased from rooms to go and June 2014 and I will admit it has not aged very well I have furniture in my house way older that have held up better and I currently have plans to Change the furniture out in 2018. As for the patio furniture we originally had some nicer patio furniture however had rusted in less than two years so that is why I have plastic as it holds up better to the weather conditions. Thank you again for your feedback and for choosing a condo for your stay in Galveston we have to have you back again if you have any future trips to the island.
