Why Property Manager Elizabeth Garibay chose Galveston

As long time visitors to the island, our family has owned a home in Galveston for over 40 years. This was a perfect getaway after many years of renting from time to time; our original home in Taramar Beach was destroyed in Hurrican Alicia in the 1980's. We have enjoyed this condo throughout the years and look forward to hearing about all the wonderful new memories to be made!

What makes this condo unique

The ability to just get away and not mess with the day to day fuss of the rat race makes this condo an oasis. Cool and quiet, it brings all the best of the beach, with few complications. Now, with the outstanding view and beach access just a few steps away, there is no need to look further for the perfect weekend or spring break vacation for you and the family!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the fresh look of the unit and ease of finding the building along the seawall. Our stay was pretty good and you could tell they'd just redone place, especially the kitchen, everything was new. Wasn't super busy and you can see the island starting building new beach across the street which will be nice, but you need to keep your eyes open when you're crossing the street. Cars drive fast and there's not a light or crosswalk.

Overall, we really like the place and if we come back to the island we'd stay again.

Underwhelmed.

  • 3 of 5

The property was dated and needed some deferred maintenance. When we walked in I could hear water running in the main bathroom. The toilet had stuck and was running, splashing water on the floor. I got the toilet to mostly stop gushing but could still hear the water running. I cleaned the floor and called the manager to have someone fix it. She said someone would be there in the morning. I was finally able to jimmy the toilet so it would stop as I wasn't going to listen to running water all night. A maintenance guy showed up the next morning around 10 and I told him I thought it needed all new parts. He returned later that afternoon with a flapper and the toilet still was leaking. Later that afternoon he finally replaced the whole thing. We kept hearing a loud clicking noise when the A/C turned on and I finally tracked it to the furnace closet where the outside metal casing was vibrating metal against metal. I ended up rolling a hand towel and wedging it between the side of the furnace and the door. Other issues included the ceiling light in the main bath being burned out, the bathtub faucet in the master bath dripping, absolutely no overhead lighting in the living room other than one dim decorator lamp by the dining room table. The bedrooms had lamps that did not operate with the wall switch and both closets were filled with clutter and there was no room to hang my clothes and no dresser in the spare bedroom. There were no drapes on the sliders looking out to water so we had to drag the hurricane shutters opened and closed each day to keep the sun out. The rooms overlook a very busy 4 lane road and there was lots of traffic noise, especially Friday and Saturday night so it's truly not a quiet condo as the ad suggests.

On the plus side, the kitchen was remodeled and very nice. It was stocked well with appliances, dishes and cooking implements. The A/C worked well, the pool was nice and the people manning the desk were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The area had lots of things to do, the restaurants were great and again, everyone we had contact with with very friendly.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We have addressed each of the items you mentioned from the toilet noise and AC clicks to the sliding storm doors and lighting. We have also installed brand new flooring throughout the condo and hope that it only adds to the overall look and feel of the property and provides all our guests years of enjoyment to come! We hope we have an opportunity to host you again sometime in the future and if not, wish you the best in all your future travels!

easy to check in, clean and always had a hot shower waiting for us.

  • 4 of 5

It was our first time staying at a Non Hotel and didn't know what to expect. It was clean, the showers were hot. The light switches were a little confusing but nothing we couldn't figure out. Overall we will do it again.
