Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 6

This Galveston vacation rental with pools, hot tubs, and a location across the street from the Gulf is a family getaway you won't want to miss.

This unit is part of a condo complex on the Seawall, just four miles from the Strand for galleries and fine dining, and two miles from several hot local attractions.

Surrounded by two heated pools, tennis courts, and two secluded garden whirlpools, this contemporary unit done in slate blues and beachy decor is just the ticket for peace and tranquility during your Texas getaway.

Flip through the cable channels and surf the WiFi for the weather forecast in the well-appointed living room, or head out to the balcony to read a good book.

Make a simple, quick meal or a light snack in the efficiency kitchen (there's no oven), done in flecked gray and white tiles for a modern look. Put the dishes away in the dishwasher before hitting the beach or the pool.

This one-bedroom, one-bathroom home can sleep up to six people (four adults maximum, please). The bedroom has a cozy queen bed and a private TV. There is a set of twin bunk beds in the hallway for two kids to share, and a pull-out sofa for extra accommodations. This home is a great rental for a multi-generational family, as this unit is accessible via elevator!

Spend lazy days on the grounds of the complex playing tennis, working out in the fitness center while the kids play foosball and Ping-Pong in the game room, or lounging by the pool.

Head across the street to the beach and the 61st Street Fishing Pier to cast a line or chase the waves. The kids will love a day of watery fun at Schlitterbahn Water Park, or an IMAX showing at Moody Gardens. Enjoy old-fashioned carnival thrills at the Historic Pleasure Pier.

For fun in the sun with the ocean close at hand, this resort-style condo makes a family vacation memorable and fun for all - book today!

* The Victorian Condo Association will collect a Facility Access Fee from all bookings to cover parking and pool access. The fee is $20 for reservations up to 15 days and $40 per month over 15 days.

About Vacasa of the Texas Gulf Coast

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.

<br>

<br>

Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife���s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.

<br>

<br>

Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Great view/location, but the constant knocking noise & leak above bathroom entryway needs to be f...

  • 2 of 5

We traveled here from North Texas the last weekend of August 2018 - my husband, myself, and our 3 kids (ages 19, 18, and 4). We stayed from Thursday through Sunday. Because we weren't sure if we were going to be able to take a vacation until last minute, we did not book this room until 2 days prior to our arrival. <br />

<br />

I will get the cons out of the way first.<br />

<br />

Cons:<br />

• There were no clear instructions (or instructions at all, period) on how to lock the main entry door when exiting the room. We tried over and over and couldn't figure it out, so I called Vacasa. They tried instructing me through it, even giving me the code to get the keys out of the lockbox, but I still couldn't figure it out. They called in an emergency work order to get someone out to fit in. Meanwhile, after a good 10 minutes working on it, my husband finally figured it out. You have to enter the code into the digital keypad, then physically turn the latch to lock it. It is easy as pie after you figure it out, but we were left to learn it on our own. <br />

• There was an annoying knocking or dripping noise coming from the ceiling at the entryway, so you can hear it clearly in all rooms. It is unavoidable. It occurred all hours of the day and night and kept my husband awake every night and annoyed the rest of us. A definite problem that needed to be fixed. We will never return to this particular room for this reason alone. The noise was more prominent after the person above us drained their bathwater, so I assume it's the sound of water in the pipes. <br />

• Also, after they drained their bathwater, it started slowly dripping water in our bathroom entryway (I have video footage of it). We put a towel on the floor to catch it. <br />

• As someone else mentioned, the floors are definitely dirty. They need a good mopping.<br />

• Took me 10 minutes to figure out how to properly work the 2 burner stovetop. The knob on the right turns on the top burner and the knob on the left turns on the bottom burner. I don't know about the bottom burner, but as for the top burner, in order to turn it to high, turn the knob counter clockwise slightly to the left. Took several minutes for me to heat it up, but it did eventually work. A bit annoying how small it is. You can't cook 2 things at once.<br />

• The couch sinks in pretty bad, and once folded out as a bed it is not functional at all. The left side is completely caved in. If you plan on bringing enough people for someone to sleep there, don't plan on this condo. Look elsewhere. <br />

• The ball of hair that someone else complained about in the shower is still there. <br />

• The toilet didn't flush super well for us. Be careful about loading too much in there, if you know what I mean. Let's just we had a situation where the plunger didn't do its job and we had to break out a trash bag and gloves. <br />

• No oven (which we went into this knowing).<br />

• The curtain covering the balcony door would fall off every time you tried moving the curtain out of the way. I read about this happening in previous comments. My husband said it looks like all it would take is a quick drill of a screw to fix it. <br />

• Vacasa, the owner of this room, never responded to 2 separate emails I sent them asking questions about the amenities that were not listed. Granted, we only booked 2 days prior to arrival and perhaps that wasn't enough time for them to respond, but, at the same time...2 whole business days went by without a single response! In fact, days later and I still never received a response. Also, the first rep I spoke with from Vacasa our first day to inform I couldn't figure out how to lock our door had a slight sarcastic attitude. I was having a hard time hearing him over the phone due to commotion going on around me, and he would keep talking over me asking if I could hear him, but it was in a definite rude-and-annoyed-but-trying-to-not-act-rude-and-annoyed way. He needed to be a b...

Looks adorable but SO uncomfortable!

  • 2 of 5

The master has a 1”foam mattress that is absolutely HORRIBLE to sleep on, & the couch/sleeper sofa is old, also extremely uncomfortable, and needs replaced. These two simple fixes really will ruin your stay! The property and the inside are fine, but not when you can’t sleep on your vacation. Would not rent this condo again!

Old furniture, all torn up!

  • 1 of 5

I do not normally complain but this was a horrible condo! <br />

Busted living room chair! Un-seatable!<br />

Broken springs in the couch - literally sticking straight out! UNUSABLE! We could not accommodate 6 guests without going to the local Walmart to purchase a blow up mattress and extra sheets and blankets, which were also nowhere to be found in the condo for use on the (busted) sofa-bed! <br />

Four of the six chairs on the patio were broken! <br />

No extra trash bags! <br />

No remote control!<br />

Tv's were extremely staticy! <br />

Bathroom shelving had cobwebs in corners!<br />

I mean come on! This place was unacceptable. I’m used to camping out in better furnishings than this! SERIOUSLY!<br />

Never again!

Cute just not clean or ideal for my family.

  • 2 of 5

When we arrived it appeared nice and clean but it’s like the housekeeping just cleaned the minimum they needed to to make it look as though they did something in between guests. There was a pile of sand still in the corner of the shower because it doesn’t slope to the drain that they just have overlooked for who knows how long. There was grit still built up all over the floor when we first arrived. The one chair offered in the living room was broken with a big board hanging down from it. My family and I are very understanding this a beach rental but when we travel we expect it to be clean when we arrive and not have to clean things right away. We will definitely look else where next time we chose to travel to Galveston.
