Great private beach Condo

  • 5 of 5

A Sunny Seahorse is a great little condo with all the amenities. It could use a couple more dish towels than just one. It has a great pool, private beach, charcoal grills and located about 20 minutes from the busy and touristy area of Galveston Island. Close to restaurants, Moody Gardens, and other area attractions. We have a couple of suggestions & issues but nothing that wasn't too big. The master bed pillows were flat and could stand to be replaced, we bought our own (no big deal). We had a couple issues with the digital key-less entry pad upon arrival, after a couple calls the issue was resolved and no more issues for the remainder of the stay. We did however have issues with the digital key-less entry pad on the living room balcony door. After 2 separate calls to let my father back in who stayed in the condo while we ran some errands, we found it to be very sensitive, for example when closing the door the blind would rock back across the key pad and brush against the "lock" button therefore locking you out of the condo on the balcony. This happened twice to my father. The maintenance man said he didn't know why and that we should just leave the door cracked. So we used the deadbolt locking mechanism as a buffer to make sure we could get back in. There was also no code to enter per Ryson that we should have to use to get back in if the balcony door locked. We didn't want to leave the door wide open being that the ac was on. There is no dining room table, it is has a bar eating area with four stools, which was fine with us (family of 4). It has one full bath and a half bath. The ice and water dispenser on the fridge did not work, we bought bags of ice and cases of water, again no big deal but would've been nice if it worked. Small condo but cozy. Other than that it was a clean, pleasant and beach'y decorated condo with upgraded bath and kitchen. Carpet was worn but its a rental so kind of expected. Other than a few minor issues we still had a great time on Galveston Island would return again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to write a review for A Sunny Seahorse. I would like to apologize for the troubles you had with the key-less door lock pads. The issue with the door locking someone out of the condo is extremely unsettling. Our maintenance department has taken the necessary steps to make sure that this will not happen again. The ice and water device on the refrigerator has also been addressed with the owner and should be working correctly as of now. In spite of these frustrations, I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your time on the island. We look forward to helping you plan your next trip to Galveston. As a thank you we would like to extend to you a 10% loyalty discount for your next reservation with Ryson Vacation Rentals.

Very very nice.

The table in the living room wasn't really a table b/c there wasn't a top. There was a quarter roll of toilet paper in one bathroom. Other than that it was fabulous!!!

I hope that this didn't take away for the fun to be had on the island. The issue has been corrected and we hope that we will be able to assist you in finding a home or condo in the near future.

There was only 1 shower. It was really a 1.5 bath--not a 2 bath condo.

  • 3 of 5

I was happy with the washer/dryer unit which was just around the corner from the condo's front door. It was conveniently located and worked as long as I had enough quarters for the machines.

This property only guarantees 1 vehicle space per condo. This was not mentioned anywhere in the advertising for the property or by phone when I called to ask questions. We were able to secure a 2nd vehicle pass for the remainder of our trip but the first night we had to find another place to park the 2nd car.

The refrigerator's ice/water was broken our entire stay. I called the property manager to inform them and they never came to fix it. Luckily the tap water out of the sink tasted fine and could get cold enough that ice was not required.

My family liked the condo and enjoy our stay. It was nice to never have to leave the property. The beach is right there and the pool was also never too busy. I would rent this unit again.

Close to the beach and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Me and my friends stayed here for the weekend and it was very clean and well kept. They have a pool as well as the beach is walking right behind the building. If we ever stay in a condo again, we would boom here again

Labor Day Getaway

It was great staying on the beach. Nice that we did not have to cross street or seawall to get to the beach. Family of 5 (kids 11, 9 & 2). Pool was nice too.

Love It!

  • 4 of 5

Excellent location. The view was fantastic. The kitchen was a little small, but we were able to work around it. Loved being able to access the beach without having to cross the busy road.
