“Don't book through AB Sea Sales and Rentals - Use vrbo.com”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

The place is great, we love it because most one bedroom condos sleep 4-6 and its directly on the beach. Whatever you do, book through VRBO.com where you deal directly with the owner and you can even see the actual room you're booking. We have stayed at Seascape four times, but this time I found a better price through Orbitz ($789/3 nights). Booked room on Tuesday, email confirmation from Orbitz on Wednesday with a receipt for payment, flew family of five to Houston from Tulsa on Friday. AB Sea Sales & Rentals (manages the property) refused to honor the reservation because they quit doing business with Orbitz! After an hour of them scrambling around, they talked an owner into letting us stay one night and gave us a great price trying to make up for the mistake, I signed a receipt for $113 only to find out later they credited it and recharged my card $540!!
Never had a problem when booking through vrbo.com - the owners are awesome to deal with.

Room Tip: Book through VRBO.com so you can pick the exact room and deal directly with owners.

We are a family of two adults, an 18 year old and 7 year old. We came here for the first time 2 years ago and are back again. This is perfect for our family (came this time without the 18 year old). We love the location right on the beach - no crossing the busy street like most places on the Seawall. And, there is a pool, kid pool and hot tubs. All of the "pool view" rooms have a great view of the pool area and ocean. We have stayed in the smallest condos, which are all at the back of the property farthest from the beach but we can still hear the ocean and watch the waves. They have great security (a little over zealous at times, but I'd rather that than not). There are BBQ grills and outdoor shower for washing off when you come off the beach. Also, interestingly, many people leave their beach tents, etc on the beach overnight with no problems. Each condo is different, so you have to pour through the descriptions and pictures. Nothing fancy, but ours have been well equiped with dishwasher, refrig, stove, microwave, and all the cooking things you could need. Yes, you have to bring your own beach towels and there is no daily maid service. And, there are a lot of "fees" in the reservation price. We booked online and knew the total per night cost up-front. Worth the money. We will be back again. This time we stayed in 2303, and last time it was 2203. Both were good units.

Room Tip: Rooms with the "pool view" have the best views. The others look over parking areas.

We stayed in Unit 1305 last weekend and had a great time. We loved the view of the beach, but now that we've been there once, next time we might choose a room without a view of the RV park. It was very quiet and our kids loved it as well. LOVE the easy access to the beach. We drove up Seawall to check out Stewart beach and there is no way we'd want to be at a beach where you are on top of other people. The beach at Seascape seems almost private compared to that. The pool is very nice, but I wish it stayed open past 11:45. Easy check-in/out process too. Our condo was well-stocked with kitchen stuff. We brought our own paper towel, toilet paper, dishwasher soap, laundry soap, but all we ended up using was the paper towel.

Our only complaints are very minor. The photos do make the unit look larger than it is. It was difficult to find a place to set up our playpen for the baby to sleep. Also, the light outside the door cannot be turned off. It seemed almost like day time in the bedroom with no blackout curtains, so I ended up using some of the extra linens in the closed to block out some of the light. Lastly, we truly thought there would be a washer and dryer in the unit from the description online. I guess there was a common set somewhere on the property, but we didn't find it. We didn't look very hard though, as we were much too busy out doing stuff around town. That's the thing, if there had been laundry at the unit, we could have run it while we were asleep and had clean beach towels for the next day.

Overall we were VERY happy with our stay in Unit 1305 at Seascape. We would definitely stay there again and have already recommended it to friends.

Room Tip: Ask for an "upgraded" room so you will have Wi-Fi and cable TV. Try to get a gulf-view r...

My family stayed in unit 1305 for 4 nights. It was amazing! The condo was clean and had a very nice kitchen set-up. We had an ocean view and I loved sitting on the balcony for breakfast every morning! We had plenty of room especially since we spent most of the time outside enjoying the beach! Seascapes has many positives- direct beach access, pool, hot tub, grilling and picnic area. I would recommend any unit that the owner of this unit owns! He was very helpful to me in assisting me with booking the condo.

My family has stayed at Seascape Galveston many times. We like the fact that is directly on the beach. This trip was a bit of a disappointment. I had checked reviews online and read a review of 1204 that stated that the sofa sleeper was broken in the main room and the wireless didn't work. I called the office at ABSea Rentals and told them I wanted to confirm that these things had been resolved. I spoke with a terse man who told me that they tell their condo owners to fix things so it was fixed. I asked if he could confirm with the owner and he said no. I took his word for it (because everything else was booked). When we arrived both of the broken things were still broken. I called the office and was told they weren't sure how to get the wireless working and they'd tell the owner about the sofa. End of conversation. Luckily, I'm fairly technical and was able to get the wireless working by swapping out cords and messing with it for about 30 minutes. The sofa sleeper couldn't be slept on. Glad we brought air mattresses. Morale of the story, pick a different condo. Room 1214 sounds nice. Look at the reviews and do your homework.

Room Tip: do your homework, read the reviews, don't rent 1204.

1214 was very nice, modern equipped with a nice view. Pool area was always clean too. Just a few steps to the beach made it nice and convenient no need to drive to the beach. The seaweed was heavy but its that time of year, we had no trouble playing in the sand making sand castles! Wash area to rinse off after time on the beach too.7/5-7/12/2013

We stayed in Unit 2321 which was clean and was equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The owner was quick to respond to our inquiries.

The balcony had a nice view of the ocean. We liked that Seascape was right on the beach. We also appreciated the covered parking and elevators to the 3rd floor unit. The pool was beautiful and the spa hot and bubbly. The ocean was just a short walk away and upon our return there were convenient faucets to rinse off the sand. The security codes to access the beach and pool were easy to use. The front desk staff were friendly and answered our easily answered any of our questions.
