    First thing to remember...this is not a hotel. You are staying in someone's private home. We stayed in 407,a beautifully updated one bedroom with a pull out sofa bed. Our party consisted of 3 adults and a 7 year old. The beach in front of the complex was carefully groomed and the chair and umbrella option was a nice touch.... More

    This is a perfect location right on the beach. The staff is superior and the condos are beautifully updated and must meet standards to be on the rental pool. Having full kitchen in your condo is wonderful since we don't always like to eat out. The activities the condo offers for kids and adults is wonderful. The pool is first... More

    The absolute best place to stay at in Galveston. Private beach access and away from the busy part of the island. I've been staying here since I was a kid with my family. Awesome pool area and the rooms are people's homes in the off season so they're much more homey feeling than most hotel rooms.

    This first-ever stay at Galvestonian was marvelous! The amenities of a luxury hotel-The friendliness of a bed and breakfast-The charm and location of a beachside villa. We will never go anywhere else! The unit was homey and plush at the same time. The beach was very quiet and next to a beautiful "Seaside FL" neighborhood. The activities were fun for... More

    We rented a 3 bedroom, 2 bath and it couldn't have been more lovely. My husband and I came with our grown daughter and our 5 year old granddaughter. The place was decorated perfectly and had everything we needed for the week. We got up in the morning and cooked breakfast in the kitchen, ate in the dining room and... More

    Not sure why you would stay on the crowded, touristy, strip in Galveston where you have to walk across the street to get to the beach when this is just perfect! Away from the crowds but close enough to drive to excellent restaurants in the area. Right on the beach!! This is perfect for anyone with kids. The pool is... More

    This is a wonderful place to stay they have thought of everything. This was our first visit but defiantly will not be our last. The beds in the condo are absolutely fabulous. Rooms are very neat and clean.If going to the beach I would recommend renting the umbrella and chairs. They set up and take down. Looking forward to the... More

    We stayed in Unit 1110 for two nights with our 17 month old. The unit was clean and comfortable and had a great view. I loved being able to walk down to the beach (with as many towels as I wanted!). There were only a few other people on the beach, which made it nice and relaxing. We did not... More

    Love this place, been coming for well over 10 years, but the current rules are ridiculous. Just got back from girls trip for friend's 50th birthday. Both nights we were told that we had to leave the table and chairs on the deck (not by the pool) at 10pm because they were "shutting it down". Really?! Didn't know that the... More

    We recently stayed at the Galvestonian over the 4th of July weekend. We did a lot of research of the Galveston area and decided the Galvestonian was the perfect place to stay and it was! We rented a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo on the 3rd floor with a perfect view of the water and the pool area. The Galvestonian... More
