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!

Older condos but still great! Perfect view of the ocean!

  • 4 of 5

Great clean condo with perfect view of the ocean that omits the road and crowds below. Perfect for watching waves roll in and pelicans and seagulls flying by. We had our 2 kids, 4 and younger, and the condo was perfect size for us.

Wonderful view!

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at the condo. The view is spectacular, the rooms were clean and the bed was very comfortable! We would definitely stay here again. We only had a couple of tiny issues: the maid apparently forget to leave the promised bathroom supplies. There was a bottle of lotion, but no shampoo or bar soap. We could have called and asked for them, but since we needed a few things at the store anyway, we just picked them up ourselves. The only other issue was the rough condition of the popcorn ceiling, especially in the entry. But as soon as you see the view, all is forgotten! Some very nice updates have been made to the unit. We loved our time there!

great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our visit to Galveston and we are so glad we found this jewel of a condo! Lovely condo, decorated beautifully, and the kitchen was perfect for us. We really made use of the in-unit washer and dryer. Very convenient! Also, we really enjoyed the location. Not loud and noisy, but not far from busy main attractions. The views were amazing too.

beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is a great place stay when you are vacationing in Galveston. The view is amazing (looks out to the ocean), there is a great pool, and the location is very close to all the things you want to do in Galveston. The condo was spacious, clean, and comfortable. I'll be staying here again next time I'm in Galveston.
