About the property

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 2208 which is located right below this unit 2308, described on this page. Both condos went through an extensive recent (2015) complete 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 2208 profile, just enter its property ID on VRBO/ HOMEAWAY/ VACARIONRENTALS search: 702161.

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 top level- 3rd 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 safe 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) 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!

*****SPRING BREAK AND SUMMER TIME: During spring and summer times we accept the reservations either back to back (when 1 group is checking out and on the same day another group will be checking in), or 3 or more nights between reservations, when we can accommodate other guests. No bookings with only 1 or 2 nights opening between reservations will be accepted.

****DESCRIPTION OF THE CONDO: This CONDO (unit 2308) is a ONE bedroom unit, located on the 3rd 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: will greet you with a special coastal décor, La-Z-Boy sofa, 40 inch HD TV with Netflix streaming, a Blu-ray player, free WI-FI.

Kitchen: custom made cabinets, 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 2 bunk twin beds

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

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 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. And when it is time for a lunch or dinner, the Seascape complex has several charcoal grills which will help you prepare your meal.

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. We are located on the 3 floor (this is the top level). 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 2015

Why Marina and Gary chose Galveston

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.....

Top Floor (3rd floor)

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 brand new.....

An all in one washer/dryer in the unit

Free WI/FI

Netflix

Amazing Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is amazing; the decor is great. All appliances are top of the line. The walk in shower in bathroom is wonderful; the surprising combo washer/dryer under sink in bathroom was a marvel. The bed was wonderfully comfortable. We have stayed in other vacation condos in the Galveston area and this one is just miles above the rest. You can walk out to the beach; no busy street to cross; the immediate area is quiet; with door to balcony open it is amazingly refreshing to just sit and listen to the sound of the waves. We definitely plan to stay here again. We had a wonderful "get away from it all" weekend.

Nicest condo on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time of staying in this condo. Nicely appointed always impeccably clean and the owners are wonderful to work with. Would not stay anywhere else when on the island of Galveston.

Owner's Response: The customer service is extremely important to us and we did everything possible to keep this guest fully informed about the parking lot re- constructin. As soon as we found out about it we had notified this guest via email (it was about 2 weeks prior to his check-in), we told him about the possibly of hearing some noise on days of his stay, and also we asked him to let us know if it can be an issue, so we can offer a refund; his response was " the only change we want to make is to add an extra few days to our stay". During the stay he had mentioned that he loved our condo, everything was great and NEVER mentioned the issue of the noise or desire to cancel/reschedule, which we would absolutely honor for the guests comfort in this kind of situation. On top of that, our manager had confirmed there was NO construction during Thanksgiving Day, the guest had mentioned about in his review! We always work hard to provide the best customer service to our guests, including this guest, informing him about the construction before an arrival, keeping in touch during his stay... and our customer service is shown in almost 3 years review status (between 2 condos we have over 140 five stars reviews), and we had a pleasure of hosting many repeat guests and some familes stayed with us over 4 times.

Great seaside escape!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at Marina and Gary's condo for two nights. It was our first time in Galveston and we wanted the full seaside experience. The condo did not disappoint! The location was perfect and I loved the private beach access. I couldn't believe how close the Gulf was to the property and it was so nice to easily and safely walk there. The pool and hot tub were our favorite way to relax in the evening. Marina was so easy to communicate with both before and during our stay. She was very helpful in recommending local restaurants, many of which we were able to try. Each one was great! The condo itself is beautifully decorated. They clearly put time and effort into the design. The king size bed was so comfortable! Thank you for a great trip, I can't wait to visit again!

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.
