I've stayed at the Islander East Condos on the separate occasions and have always enjoyed my stay there. The most awesome feature is the fact that I have direct access to the beach, without having to get in my car and get sand everywhere. I also get to enjoy my morning balcony view with a morning cup of coffee, and... More

ISLANDER EAST CONDOMINIUMS - DISAPPOINTING We stayed in Unit 216 in June 2015, as we have done for the past 4 years. This is a 3 bedroom 3 bath unit. The unit has new owners who have done some updating. However, all closets with the exception of one were locked which meant there was no storage for suitcases or beach... More

This was our 4th year to stay at the Islander East with my parents, and the 4th year to stay in unit #216. The good things: It has direct beach access without having to cross a busy road with young kids to get to the beach. The unit has been redone, with nice tiled showers and updated bathrooms, granite kitchen... More

Great direct beach access, decent outdoor pool. Some units are better than others but perfect location. Not many condos are directly on the beach but this one is! If you like tennis, nice courts upfront with excellent parking too. Private, sort of secluded condos and quiet!

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
