Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: We met in upstate New York (BRRR!!!) 35 years ago and gradually made our way south. We moved to the Houston area 19 years ago and are very happy to now live in sunny southeast Texas. Our two children are also glad to be here and have the privilege of spending time on wonderful Galveston Island!
Why the Owner Chose Galveston, TX, USA:
The view, the view, the view! Plus for some hurricane protection, we wanted steel & concrete on the seawall, and not far from the 'action!' This is our second unit in the same building. We bought our first unit in 2007, and it is where we plan to retire. After 10 years, we still believe this is an awesome location with a view that is hard to beat! We are very excited that the beach has been rebuilt on this part of the island. There is a set of stairs directly across from the building that take us right down to the beach; it's so convenient!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
You will fall in love with the view from the moment you step into the unit! When you are not down on the beach, which you can access directly across the street, you will want to spend as much time as possible on the 24-foot balcony people watching, dolphin watching, or just relaxing with a cool drink, listening to the crashing waves. If you get tired of watching the waves, watch the cable TV with a Roku that provides Pandora and thousands of movies and TV series. If you can't totally disconnect, the unit has high-speed wireless internet with a secure login.
