Islander East is a great simple condo for those who want a full Gulf view on the East end of Galveston. Each unit has a balcony to relax on. Condos are individually owned, about 30 yrs old, with various degrees of owner updates. Rent from the website, this is a good value. Prices will vary by seadon, local events, 2... More

Is this the nicest Condo you're ever going to to stay at? Depends on your budget. For the price, my wife and I found it clean and acceptable. It has direct access to the beach, and it feels like a private beach because so few people use it the bed was comfortable, and the room we stayed in was very... More

This was our 4th year at the Islander East, our 3rd year with children and grandchildren. We stay in Unit #216 which is a 3 bedroom/3 bath unit. This is a fabulous unit. The kitchen is nicely stocked, the bathrooms have all been upgraded and the sleeper sofa in the living area is new with a comfortable bed. The boardwalk... More

This was a great find. We drove by and called the Condominium. Howard was extremely helpful with making reservations for our very short stay. He allowed us to look at 3 different units before selecting a unit to stay in. The unit had a beach view and was very well decorated. We had a full kitchen including dishes. The access... More

We have stayed here before over Memorial Day. Our kids and their family were going to come but had a family emergency. When called to cancel they said, we were a little to late. So, the front desk down sized us from the Penthouse to a Efficiency for the price of the deposit. When my husband and I got all... More

These are by no mean fancy condos, but our family comes here to go to the beach! This was our 4th time to stay on this property. As others have mentioned you do not have to cross the road to go to the beach and that alone is worth the price of admission. We have rented both efficiencies and 1... More

We have stayed at Islander East several times now. Every condo we have stayed in was nice, but so far 308 has been our favorite. The outside of the building looks a little older but the inside of the units we have stayed in have been nicely furnished, up-to-date and very clean. Best of all, we love that it is... More

We have been coming to the Islander for 8 years. We've stayed in a lot of the condo's but our favorite is 910. All the condo's are clean, neat and if there's a problem, Management always make sure things work out. When we arrive, we feel like the TV show "Cheers" because they know our names. In the 8 years,... More

Been coming here for thirty years best spot on the island. It is showing age but its perfect spot away from all the hustle and bustle of the city. Lobby is remodeled and looks comfy and is the perfect place to watch a storm roll in.

This is the site of our families annual get together. We have been coming here every summer for over 30 years and while it's beginning to show its age, its still a favorite spot. We can't imagine staying anywhere else in Galveston. The units are a mixture of full time residents and rental units. The rental units are individually owned... More
