Dear Guests,

BEFORE SENDING BOOK REQUEST, SEND US MESSAGE FIRST VIA THIS SITE by clicking on " contact the owner"! (checking availability, we can be already booked for the days you are interested in from other rental sites!!!).

-If you want to stay in our condo, but the calendar shows no availability, please check our other condo- unit 2308 which is located right above this unit 2208, described on this page. Both condos went through an extensive recent renovation, both have the same great view of the pool and a beautiful view of the ocean, both condos are the closest to the beach you can get in a 1 bedroom unit, both have a wonderful coastal decor, everything is new inside both condos. These two condos are almost identical to each other!!! If you are interested in looking at the condo 2308 profile, just enter its property ID into site's search: 792554.

For your convenience we would like to mention a few words about the location of our condo, then rules of booking with us (*PLEASE READ THEM BEFORE BOOKING*, these are the most asked questions), and we will finish our description with the amenities that our condo and resort offer.

****LOCATION: Our condominium is located ON THE BEACH!!! (no need to cross a busy 4 lane HWY), about 6 miles west from the Pleasure Pier, so it is just minutes away by a car from all the restaurants and tourist destinations of the island. This condo is 516 sq ft total, 1 BDRM, 1 bath, located on the 2nd floor (there is an elevator in the building). Our condo is THE CLOSEST to the beach that you can get in a one bedroom unit of our resort. We have BOTH: an amazing view of the pool and a beautiful view of the ocean!!!

****RULES OF BOOKING:

-Guest must be at least 25 y. o., unless a married couple, to rent a property; a person who rents the condo should be one of the guests (not just booking on behalf of someone else)

-Prom, graduation, spring break parties, youth groups without adult supervision are not permitted

-Strictly non-smokers only (including outside and e-cigarettes smokers)

-Pets of any kind are not permitted inside the condo or on the resort property (strict HOA rule)

-Wheelchairs and walkers are not suitable due to the small size of the condo.

-We welcome families with and without children. Our condo is not child-proofed, contains items which may be considered dangerous to small children, has a balcony and there is no room for pack n play & other furniture needed to take care of small kids; for these safety reasons, unfortunately we will not host groups with children under age of 4.

Maximum number of children in any group is two!!!

-All reservations are subject to a contract of the rental agreement (this agreement contains the basic info and rules of the resort & our condo, incl. cancellation policy, parking, etc.). If you would like to stay in our condo, DO NOT SEND BOOK REQUEST, but please send us a message first, checking the availability of the condo (our property is advertised on several vacation rental sites and possibly the dates you are interested in are already booked) and if the condo is available we will send a copy of our rental agreement over for your review. We DO NOT accept the reservation until we receive a signed copy of the agreement back from a guest; if a guest submits a payment without our approval their money can be on hold for a few days.

- PRICE: Please, check our rate calendar for the accurate rate AND an additional fee such as cleaning ($80), parking/resort fee and government 15% tax under that calendar. Our price changes depending on the season/holidays/special events and number of guests.

-ONLY the number of guests mentioned DURING the reservation will be allowed to stay in the condo. Adding extra guest(s) no matter of age, to the confirmed reservation is NOT permitted. To prevent the condo from overcrowding having day time visitors is NOT allowed! NO EXCEPTIONS!

**** DESCRIPTION OF THE CONDO: This CONDO (unit 2208) is a ONE bedroom unit, located on the 2nd floor. Our condo is THE CLOSEST to the beach you can get in a one bedroom unit. Condo has an amazing view of the pool and a beautiful view of the ocean!!!

The Living room: has a special coastal décor, La-Z-Boy sofa a chair, 40 inch smart HD TV, a Blu-ray player, free WI-FI.

Kitchen: SS appliances, full range oven, fully stocked.

Bathroom: oversized walk-in tile shower with glass doors. Under the sink, you will find a combo washer/dryer, so you don't need to use the condo's general washateria.

Hallway: built-in bunk beds (sleep 2, up to 6 ft. tall people)

Bedroom: oversize custom made armoire, custom made king size bed with a high quality memory foam mattress and foam pillows, 32 inch flat smart HD TV.

Balcony: You will be able to relax on a private balcony using our high-rise chairs. There is a storage/sitting bench on the balcony; inside you will find 6 beach chairs and a few beach toys for the kids to take to the beach.

Total sleeping arrangements: 4 people (a king size bed in a bedroom, 2 built-in twin bunk beds in the hallway.

RESORT: The Seascape resort offers you a large heated pool, a kiddie pool and 2 hot tubs (one is for adults only). There are multiple lounge chairs and tables around the pool area, 2 gazebos with 4 swings on the property, several charcoal grills.

So, what is the difference between our condo compared to the others?

1. Location of our resort......We are located on the beach, no need to worry to cross the busy 4 lane Highway

2. Location of our condo......If you get a condo in our complex which is facing west, there is a great view of the sunset, but also a complete view of an RV park. Condos facing east will treat you with a view of sunrise and possibly a view of the HOA building, which can partially block your ocean view, depending on the location of the condo. Our condo is facing inside the complex, so you can have a full view of the pool and a great view of the ocean. Also, we are the closest you can get to the beach in a 1 bedroom condo!!!

3. Remodeling.....We went through an extensive remodeling process in 2015.

Thanks for visiting our page. We hope to see you soon and have a great vacation!!!

About Marina and Gary

Marina and Gary Wilcox

Marina and Gary purchased this condo in 2014

Why Marina and Gary chose Galveston Island

On our free days we wanted to have a place to go and relax. We wanted something that is on the beach with direct access from the property (not wanting to cross a busy highway to get there) Our criteria was a view of the pool, great view of the ocean and to be as close as possible so we could hear the waves landing on the beach. We wanted a property that is well maintained and managed. We found that Seascape fulfilled our requirements. We then set out to remodel with a certain idea in mind. To be somewhere unique. I think we accomplished that. Come and see for yourself.

What makes this condo unique

Direct access to the BEACH.....

A great view of the beach and the pool.....

Close to all the major sites and attractions.....

Unique nautical theme remodel (rustic floor, shiplap walls, nautical armoire, etc.).....

Everything is new.....

A all in one washer/dryer in the unit

Free Wi/Fi

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this rental! Super nice owners, a very convenient location (no walking across the busy highway to get to the beach but close enough to all the entertainment) and the condo is super cute. We will definitely be back ❤️

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

A place for everything and everything in its place. Every inch of this condo is very well thought out, efficient, incredibly clean, and comfortable. It truly is a home away from home. Instructions from how to make a reservation, to getting there to how to work the tv's, etc. are fool proof. Marina and Gary are excellent hosts and communicators!

My family of 4 (including a teen and a tween) stayed here comfortably. We loved the quick and easy access to the pool, 2 hot tubs and the beach. No cars to dodge to get to the beach. All you have to do is walk across the bridge just steps from the pool. It wasn't very loud even though the condo overlooks the pool. There is a great view of the beach from the patio.

We loved staying here, and hopefully will make it back some day!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a ton of fun and the location on the beach was perfect! If we ever return to Galveston, we won’t hesitate to stay here again, if it’s available.

A very nice, well equipped unit, but certainly not quiet

  • 4 of 5

The unit is wonderful — perfect. Great bathroom, all amenities top notch. Great view of water from balcony. Our only complaint is noise — there were some LOUD people here up until 4AM out at the pool Friday night and making a ridiculous racket in the hallways outside until all hours. We aren’t prudes but it was ridiculous. Also, do know there are lots of families with kids, certainly not an adults only place.

Owner's Response: Our resort goes thru 2 seasons: slow season, when majority of the guests are adults and the resort is very quite, and high season, like Spring Break and Summer time, when we host families with children, and of course it will be busier. Unfortunately, like any other properties, occasionally there are some guests who violates "no noise in the evening" policy, without respect for other guests, like these guests (wedding party) who were staying at resort this particular weekend. They were talked to on Saturday, and all the noise was stopped immediately. We highly respect our guests and their privacy on vacation, and were very sorry to hear about this issue. For the guests inconvenience we had offered them an extra night and were very pleased that they could extend their stay.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean, well appointed, updated and very nicely decorated. Marina was so easy to work with. She is very organized and communicated well and often (when we booked, when we arrived, after we left). She returned emails and texts promptly. I loved that everything in the condo was either marked or had laminated instructions on how to use. The beach was awesome (large and hard packed sand). Could walk for miles in one direction on the beach and for miles the other direction on the sea wall path. Although there was only one bar/restaurant in walking distance (Jimmy's on the Pier), it was an easy drive to find many great places to eat. I would chose the quiet, great pool, great beach, great condo for the busier end of town any day. We would definitely recommend the condo and the owner to anyone wishing to visit Galveston Island.

Map

The Galveston island is about 27 miles long and 3 miles wide at its widest point. But despite its small size there are a lot of attractions for all ages.

You can start your day with fun at one of these places: Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn Waterpark, Historic Pleasure Pier, Magic carpet golf , Go Kart and Fun center, a few golf courses, a Duck tour.

If you are interested in historic aspect of the island you may enjoy the following places: The Strand -the historic district of the island with its multiple restaurants and shops. Bishop Palace and Moody Mansion museum, also the East End Historic District with numerous Victorian era houses, Grand 1894 Opera House, Ashton Villa.

Don't forget about museums of the island , such as Lone Star Flight museum, a RailRoad museum, Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig and museum.

If you want to be close to the water, the Galveston island can offer you: a Dolphin watch, multiple fishing charters, Parasailing tours, Port Bolivar Ferry, 61st Street Fishing Pier, and of course miles of beaches....

And last but not least, Galveston gives you an opportunity to take a cruise to the Caribbean on Carnival or Royal Caribbean cruise lines.
