About Cynthia Page

Hello! My name is Cynthia, and my wonderful husband, Jack, and I own three Beachfront Condos at "By The Sea" Condominiums! I am a native Houstonian, and I spent my younger years visiting Galveston. Although we now reside in West Palm Beach, Florida, we enjoy frequent visits to our condos by the sea! We are so pleased to share our piece of Galveston with you, and we hope you will enjoy our home as much as we do! We make several trips each year to the beautiful City of Galveston to check on our lovely condos and do routine maintenance. We have a wonderful Housekeeper who takes pride in her work, and we were lucky to find her to look after our condos. I believe you will see the attention to detail and the love we have put into our three condos as you visit and experience your home away from home too! We will both strive to make your vacation experience a memorable one from start to finish!

Awesome location!!

  • 4 of 5

This condo is right off the beach and provides easy access to all other Galveston locations. Condo was well stocked and provided everything that we needed. Only negative is the road noise from Seawall Blvd. when sitting on the balcony. Staff was super friendly and helpful! Really enjoyed our time at "By the Sea"!!

Good and bad

  • 5 of 5

The condo and view were beautiful. The bad news is that we chose to go when hurricane Harvey came. Only stayed one night because we knew we wouldn't have been able to get home through Houston Sunday.

Very nice for the price!

  • 5 of 5

Very fairly priced beach view property. Very clean and nice unit, well equipped, comfortable bed and furniture, fully functional kitchen and A/C. We only wished that the road traffic noise wasn't so severe from the balcony, it nearly drowns out the sound of ocean waves. But with the balcony door closed, we can still enjoy the great view. Also we wished that the next door owners had not been hammering and chiseling their old balcony tile all morning long of our last day. We checked with front desk, and owners are allowed construction noise M-F 8am to 4pm. There is no posting of construction schedules between owners, so there is no way our owner could have known to warn us, so it is not their fault, just bad luck for us. Otherwise, we totally enjoyed our visit to the condo, and our exploration of the island. Thanks!

Amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this condo. Our boys spent most of their time on the balcony when we were in the condo. The bed was comfy and the seawall was right across the street. This is on a quieter area of the beach. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay there again.
