Beaches are new in Galveston.

'Perfect Central' Location, Location, Location.

This is a 'PRIVATE' Condo that I own in the Casa Del Mar Seaside Suite. I bought it this summer & it is Fun, Fun, Fun.

I would love to have you come enjoy this 'Get-A-Way.

Walk the beach, kayak, surf, catamaran, fish, boogie board, sand walk, bird-watch, boat, jump the waves, pleasure pier, hike, JOG the SeaWall, Bike, visit Moody Mansion, Swim at Schlitterban, ZIPLINE at Moody Gardens, drive-by & see the beautiful million dollar BEACH HOUSES. And so much more. I love watching the Pelicans having fun gliding on the air currents diving for fish.

Dolphins are around, look for them.

This place is full of live.

Walk the beach and look for shells.

Eateries are everywhere. I am right next to GOLDEN CORRAL.




Hotel Galvez has a fantastic SPA & SALON. aLL SERVICES.

What makes this condo unique

New Million $ beach is right across the street.

Has a good size freezer to stock for own meals.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very Comfortable! Cozy! And I got peace & quiet to work on my computer writing my book. I saw dolphins in the early morning when I was sitting on the deck. I loved the counter height chairs on the balcony. I looked over at the ocean waves comfortably without stretching my neck to look over the balcony.

The new air conditioner was ambly Cold in the hot weather.

It was a nice beach walk looking for seashells.

Here’s the text I sent the owner with no response after our stay:

Was disappointed with our stay. We were greeted with a dirty condo. Bugs in the kitchen, dirty ashtrays on the patio, and an unmade dirty bed in the bedroom. We weren’t even sure if the bunks were soap, shampoo, trash bags, or salt and pepper shakers. We left you some salt and pepper shakers. Also, there was no cleaning or towel service while we were there but I saw plenty of maids walking around. Guess you don’t pay them for that despite the crazy cleaning fees I was charged.

Perfect Home Base for Galveston Adventures

  • 5 of 5

This was our first VRBO stay, and we were very happy! The condo was very nice, and an excellent location. We walked to the beach, which is right across the street, and it was nice to be so close because we could run back to the room if we forgot anything and we didn't have to worry about parking along the busy Seawall. There is a Wal-Mart about a block away for any last minute items or to stock up on groceries. Our boys loved the built-in bunk beds, and the master bedroom was great for us. The complex was very clean inside and well maintained. Though we didn't use them, there were two outdoor pools- one regular and one heated. The owner, Carla, was very friendly and informative. She maintained contact before and during our stay and sent us more than enough information. We highly recommend this unit, and will certainly be returning soon! Tip: Ask for directions to the unit within the complex, either from the owner or from the front desk when you get your parking pass. We arrived late at night and had a hard time finding the unit within the complex, as there are two buildings.

Great location, property, and owners!

  • 5 of 5

Very easy reservantion process. The property was very nice, clean, and comfortable. Well stocked with kitchenware and new nice appliances. Great location! Great fishing pier right across the street. Everything was walking distance. Nice beach area and good food a short walk away. Great pool! Above all Carla (owner) was very welcoming and informative. She made herself available at all times for phone calls and text with any questions or need you may have. Really was a great experience!

Owner's Response: Jacqui & 'Future Guests', I love, love, love that you used the Pier right across the street. I hope the Flounder you caught tasted great for your dinner. Fishing is 'Fantastic' around here & it is right across the street. Nice! I am glad you had the relaxation enjoying your fishing. The pool is worth the walk across the parking lot. The 'Resort Quality Pool' is brand new. I love the palm trees around the pool while you lay out comfortably in the loungers. I found the infinity pool tranquail & private for adults & the street noise. It's quiet here for luxious naps. The kids swim in the other pool away from the adults who want privacy. The HOT TUB has cool water in it instead of HOT. It is very 'REFRESHING' to cool down in the Island heat. You will love it. I am glad you booked with me at 'Sanddancer Suite'. We have ample freezer space & a nice fridge to store your fish you catch. Walmart, Kroger are right down the seawall. To your future travels! Thank you for taking the time to express you satisfaction here at this condo. I am glad your vacation was successful. I will welcome you next 'Week End Get-A-Way! Carla
