The owner is awesome and the room is wonderful. Very clean and comfortable. Fully furnished and new. We will definitely stay here many many more times. Excellent location and parking. Friendly 24 hour staff and we felt very safe. Largest balcony compared to all the condos we have stayed at in Galveston.

Me and family booked room 1101 this past weekend. Great place to have a family vacation! We had a great view and the condo was very nice. It was furnished with pots and pans which was nice because we were able to cook our own breakfast in the morning. It had a washer and dryer, slept 8 to 10 people,... More

We rented By The Sea Condo 310. The best thing was the view. You can sit on the balcony with a direct view of the ocean. It was very relaxing. Booking this condo was easy and honest. Everything the owner, Carolyn, told us was the truth. She stocks the condo with just about anything you need such as pans, pots,... More

Great place to have family at the beach. Great layout, we drank coffee on the balcony and watched the sunrise every morning! Pool area was nice. You could walk across street to the beach or take a short drive to park on beach. Nice location.

After reading a review on here about room 1005 I was a little worried as we had just booked a weekend there. Yes, the price was jacked up but it was July 4th weekend so what do you expect? Everywhere else does the same! The unit could do with some updating, the carpet in the master bedroom is very old... More

My friend & I stayed at this condo rental late Sept./early Oct. The decor was light & airy, however it does need some tlc. All furnishings were well-appointed. The elevators were slow & work was being done on the floor above us. The work being done was heavy enough to knock things off shelves...a call to the owner didn't help... More

My family stayed in unit 1005 over the 4th of July weekend. To begin with, prices were really jacked up for the holiday - $1200.00 for a 3 night stay in a smelly outdated unit. The temp was set at 78 when we entered and it was extremely hot. You could tell there had been pets in the unit and... More

Condo #506 was good. I was very worried reading some of these reviews but the staff was pleasant, the pool was awesome and we even took advantage of the basketball/tennis court. The views are breathtaking. The furniture is probably a little dated but the beds were comfortable enough and no one comes to the beach to stay in the room!!... More

Overal the location is GREAT! Quiet and had no concerns about safety. Beach view was fantastic. Gave 3 stars for that alone. I stayed with my sister and family as a last minute invitation. She had unit 701. Thought there would be plenty of room. There were 4 of them and I was to have the pullout couch. Being familiar... More
