About Chelita Riley

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.

Chelita Riley purchased this condo in 1989

Why Chelita Riley chose Galveston

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!

What makes this condo unique

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!

Notes:
We also provide two beach chairs in our beach closet or you can rent chairs/umbrellas directly from the Galvestonian. It's all about the beach! And close to the strand, the Galvestonian property is secluded with a large beach but yet convenient to island activities, shopping and dining. Very convenient back to the mainland. The Galvestonian prides and promotes itself in being a premier property in Galveston. (We think it is THE PREMIER, but we have owned here for over 25 years, so might be a little biased!).

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. I've never stayed in a rental that provided so many amenities; from kitchen items to toiletries. Any thing you could think of she had. The condo was nice and the view from the balcony was great. The owner chelita was very nice in allowing us an early check in which we appreciated as we were able to get a head start on our R & R from hurricane Harvey. I would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Harvey is behind us! We were so fortunate to have no water penetration in our unit107. The Galvestonian property also suffered very little damage. Our unit, the Galvestonian and the beach are ready for your return! Chelita

Owner's Response: I am so sorry your trip was cut short but glad you made it home safely. We were very fortunate at the Galvestonian. Our unit had no damage and the property is in good shape. Amazingly, it appears the safest place to be was on the beach! Our thoughts and prayers are with all on the gulf coast. We were personally flooded two years ago when heavy rains swept the Hill Country, so know of the anguish. We look forward to your return - minus Harvey!

Wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in your condo. Everything was neat and clean. The extras you have for your guest makes traveling so much easier. I loved sitting on the balcony and listening to the ocean at night. It was such a peaceful fun stay.

Owner's Response: Sitting on the balcony watching the ships is also one of our favorite pastimes. We know our guests don't want to miss a minute of the beach, so try to keep our unit stocked with anything you just might have forgotten! Please come back! Chelita
