Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: After retiring to the Texas Hill Country near Johnson City, we cannot enjoy our beach home as often as we would like. In 2011 we began offering our galvestonianrental condo to guests when we are not able to make the trip. Our guests have been wonderful and it is a pleasure to share our island retreat. We update our condo annually based on suggestions from our guests and attempt to keep it fully stocked with all the necessities you would want if this was your island home.

Why the Owner Chose Galveston, TX, USA:
Prior to retiring to the Texas Hill Country, we were Houstonians and made frequent trips to Galveston for our beach fix. Our Galvestonianrental condo was our weekend retreat. We have an exceptional in house staff that keeps the Galvestonian well maintained. Our 24X7 front desk personnel are friendly and always available to help. When you are our guests, you step into our sandals and will be treated as if you are us!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
It is all about the Beach! The views from our bedroom and living room balconies are exceptional. The glass walls facing the ocean provide a full tropical view from our condo's interior. Our unit is close to the elevator and is the 1st floor of condos which are actually the 3rd level of the building. You can see the pool, but we are not right over the pool. One of the few Galveston properties directly on the beach! We want you to take a break from hotel sameness and enjoy our beach getaway as much as we do! The beach is calling!
