About The Doxey Clan

Galveston has always been one of my favorite recreational places for my family, we have always loved the beach, the museums, the strand and the other things to do in Galveston. Two of my three children decided on Texas A&M in Galveston to pursue their marine biology degree. So we bought them a home in Galveston. Now we use it for recreation and we now have decided to rent our home away from home so others can enjoy the many things to do in Galveston. We hope you enjoy it and come back many times.

The Doxey Clan purchased this condo in 1996

In need of updates bad; not as described

  • 1 of 5

We have been renting condos and houses for the past 10 years and this is by far the worst we have ever stayed at very disappointed. Not as described.The condo smelt bad, the vents needed to be cleaned, smelt like mold. The smoke detector in the hallway was missing and the one in the bedroom was so dusty it could not detect smoke if it needed to. Do not turn the fans up looked like they were going to fall off the ceiling. Also 2 adults and 4 children can not sit comfortably anywhere in the condo. We said forget it cut our stay short and headed home on Sunday instead of Monday. Would not recommend unless updates are done.

The moldy looking vents made me worry about Legionnaires disease so we left after the first day.

You get what you pay for

  • 2 of 5

You definitely get what you pay for......Unfortunately our condo was a bit out dated. The shower doors were really hard to open and close and one side would barely move. The back sliding glass door does not even lock and has a piece of PVC pipe in it as "lock" unfortunately the pipe was not even long enough to keep the entire door shut and still opened about a foot with the pipe in it. The pull out couch mattress was hard and uncomfortable. Also the bedroom has a window facing the outside hall that let's in a lot of light at night so if your someone who needs darkness to sleep you will get none in this room. I know it is not the hosts job to provide all the toiletries while on vacation but we did not even have a half a roll of toilet paper, no soap to wash hands in the bathroom and maybe a tiny bit of dish soap for the kitchen. The location was absolutely amazing and our view of the ocean was breathtaking, and the casa del mar was a nice facility. I do believe the condo its self could use some major updates and love.
