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!

Spectacular Views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed three days in this condo and especially loved the amazing gulf view. The condo was comfortable and well appointed. There is a closet full of beach supplies, so no need to bring lawn chairs or toys. The location is great and close to all of the major tourist activities.

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.

comfortable on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

It was nice to be right across the street from the beach and away from the beach construction.

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!
