Thoroughly enjoyed a short break to the Silverleaf Seaside Resort. Checkin was easy. We had a first floor unit, and like many coastal properties, that means upstairs. The only buildings with elevators are the Presidential units, but we were told that we could get a porter to help carry our things, if we needed. The condo was clean and had pretty, coastal decor.
The living area had a table with 4 chairs, with counter top seating for 2 in the kitchen. The balcony had a table for 4, and a nice view of the Gulf of Mexico. There were ceiling fans in the living room & the 2 bedrooms. The kitchen was nicely appointed, with a full sized 4 burner stove and dishwasher, and plenty of dishes, toaster, electric can opener. There was even a working ice maker.
The master bedroom had a whirlpool tub, and I LOVE that. The 2nd bedroom had a private bath, also. There were plenty of towels, and more available if needed. And the beds were comfortable.
The pool was spotless, with palapa shaded tables. The beach is right across the road from the main entrance, with 2 porta-potties in the parking area. The beach (while not owned by Silverleaf) is maintained by Silverleaf, with a boardwalk over the dunes and trashcans to keep it clean.
The activity center had a nice little snackbar open from breakfast to dinner, I had a pretty good cheesburger, and brought ice cream & bottle sodas back to the condo. There was a small arcade, pool table, and ping pong. The miniature golf was used by families the whole time we were there! There are BBQ pits set up between each building. On site was also a nice playground, tennis courts, basketball court and shuffleboard.
The location is not IN the town of Galveston, its closer to the Jamaica beach end of the island. The property is in the middle of some high end homes! its a straight drive into Galveston proper, where you can find grocery stores and lots to do. Head south from the resort (or a right turn for those of us without a compass in our heads) and there are beaches that seemed to be VERY popular for fishing!
I'm looking forward to taking a longer break to Silverleaf Seaside!
