About Carl and Veronica Lawrence

Se Habla Espanol - We are long time residents of the Gulf area, specifically the NASA JSC Clear Lake area and we have always enjoyed coming to the Galveston Seawall and Strand area to enjoy the unique and very charming Galveston environment. Owning a condo in Galveston has been a dream of ours, and being able to share it with others makes it even better. We live close by and we'll do everything we can to make sure you have an enjoyable visit. Our goal is to have our guests return year after year. As we connect during the reservation process we'll be glad to share with you all we know about all the great Galveston amenities.

Carl and Veronica Lawrence purchased this condo in 2015

Why Carl and Veronica Lawrence chose Gulf Coast

We chose this property because it is right in the center of one of the most dynamic sections of the Seawall Beach area and yet because it's a quiet side inner unit that makes you feel miles away from the crowds, but when you want to eat, go to the beach, the jetty, Moody's Garden, The Strand, the Seawall, the Convention Center, it's all right there. It's the best of both worlds

What makes this condo unique

Favorite part is sitting on the balcony looking over the Gulf, hearing the light roar of the waves, with that warm breeze coming off the water. You won't have to drive anywhere if you don't want to because it's all right there. Fishing pier right in front, great beaches with easy access right in front, multiple restaurants, shopping, convention center, jetties, biking, hiking, deck overlooking the gulf, quiet inner side unit with chairs to sit and read between naps...It all adds up to an easy stress free vacation and a very reasonable price.

galveston getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had another great week on the Island and this time we were able to stay in the perfect condo. The owners had thought of everything including all the little extras that make a stay away from home so comfortable. Loved the pillows and mattress, the bath towels were lovely and fluffy and the little kitchen was equipped with everything I needed to make some great meals.

Perfectly appointed, excellent location, great for our family of four!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa del Mar! We have two boys (5 & 7) and the space was perfect for our family. The boys loved sleeping in the bunk beds and we were happy to be just across the hallway. The bathroom was large enough for all of us to share and the condo had everything we needed to be comfortable. The beach is just across the street, as is a pier that is perfect for fishing. Schlitterbahn is just a couple of miles away and there are plenty of dining options nearby. (We tried Cajun Greek, Shrimp & Stuff and Gino's Italian - all of which I highly recommend!) We also really loved that the room operated on a keypad instead of having a key to keep up with. It was convenient that we were able to customize our code to come and go, as well. We will DEFINITELY be back and can't wait to book our next trip! Thank you for a lovely vacation!

Perfect long weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

We came in from CC,TX for a 3 night 4 day trip to Galveston. We have 2 adults and 3 kids(15 yr old slept on pull out-no complaints from her. Boys 11 & 12 slept on bunk beds, they are same height of 52" and fit fine)

We didn't cook anything. We did use microwave for left overs. Everything we needed was there though if we did need to cook something. The shower was plenty hot all the time. the adjacent guests to the left were not very courteous or quiet but that's part of traveling.

The room was clean neat and tidy.

My fiancé and I stayed at one with exact same layout before in CC but we just kept commenting how this unit was FAR superior.

Carl allowed us early check in since we were arriving around lunch time.

We walked to Waffle House for breakfast and to Rita's custard and across to the beach.

Traffic outside only permitted us to turn right but if you go down a bit and turn at Walmart it will loop you around with no problems.

We would for sure stay again!!

Clean, very nice, nice view, right across from beach

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great!! It was two adults and three young children the bunk beds were perfect for two of them and the smallest slept on the pull out couch which was comfortable for her. The bedroom was very nice had places to hang clothes and drawers for your clothing also a TV. Bathroom was nice and stocked with towels and great water pressure. We loved the little balcony and the view! Nice little kitchen area was just right for us! Very nice pools one was heated and one wasn't the heated one was great!! The kids loved it and was plenty of room when at its busy hours! The owners were very consistent when I was asking questions about the condo before we reserved it and also gave me all the details and code before we even got there!! The beach is right across the street in walking distance. Also very close to restaurants and stores!!! We loved our stay and would rent from them again for sure!! Great place and area!!

Additional information about rental rates

Refundable damage deposit $150
Tax Rate 15.0%

Rates are subject to change until payment is confirmed.

Sorry but the entire complex doesn't allow pets and so we cannot allow them.

VRBO has implemented a new service fee which doesn't show up in the rates until you ask for a quote from the owner. The service fee is approx 9% of the rental amount so e.g. if the rate in the rate table is $79 and you stay for 5 days there will be an additional service fee added added to the quote by VRBO of .09 x 79 x 5 = $35.55. As owners we have no control over this fee. Sorry

Please, NO Smoking allowed in the unit. Otherwise the Security deposit will be held in order to clean and deodorize the unit.

Please enjoy your stay. You've selected a great place in a wonderful area for your vacation.
