About Randy Haggard

Semi retired living 90 miles east of Galveston. We love motorcycling, traveling, working on projects and relaxing in our condo watching the sunrise.

Randy Haggard purchased this condo in 2015

Why Randy Haggard chose Galveston

Near enough to enjoy Galveston but quiet enough to enjoy the outside. We look forward to the sunrises from our balcony. They are spectacular!

What makes this condo unique

Close to moody gardens and schlitterbahn.

Not what we expected but we made the best of it.

  • 2 of 5

It is very small. I can't imagine having 6 people in there.

It is decorated cute but is in need of paint touch ups and small repairs.

There is not an oven or an adequate fridge/freezer which we did not realize before we bought all of our meals for the trip. The fridge is a small under- the -counter one with a freezer that is about 6 inches tall. The freezer was completely iced over when we got there and my husband had to chip away at it for 20 minutes so we could fit what we could in it. The stove only had 2 burners working and there is not an oven to cook frozen foods. There is not a coffee pot either, only a Kuerig which would have been nice to know. My husband had to go down to the lobby to get coffee each morning.

I also wished there had been a hand held shower nozzle in the shower for bathing my kids. It is so much easier.

The bed in the bedroom had a stained quilt and the mattress was sunken in the middle so my husband and I ended up rolling towards each other all night. Our kids slept well on the bunk beds but decided to sleep on the fold out couch one night and the mattress cover was dirty and there was sand on the mattress.

The drawers in the chest in the bedroom would not stay closed when we put our clothes in them. A little annoying.

We did have a good view of the ocean though and we enjoyed the balcony. The games in the coffee table were a nice touch. My kids loved the bathroom mirror frame made of seashells! The price was reasonable compared to other places we looked at. We did get our full deposit back fairly quickly too. The resort was nice and location was perfect! We made the room work and our family had a good time.
