About Andrea Rice

Welcome to By the Sea condos in Galveston Texas!

I am Andrea Rice, a native Houstonian, and delighted to have the opportunity to host you and your family/friends, to our beautiful condo.

I started this small vacation rental business in 2014, and it has surpassed all my expectations, so I decided to expand by purchasing a second unit at By the Sea! I hope that You will consider either one of my condos for your next vacation or visit to Galveston!

Sincerely,

Andrea

Best view in Galveston!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was better than the pictures! Everything was clean and bright. The balcony was super duper awesome! Being right across the street from the new Babe's Beach, it was absolutely perfect. Both beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were much better than staying in a hotel. The full fridge with ice maker and nice kitchen made our midnight snacks easy to prepare. The balcony was the best: we enjoyed snacks, drinks and good times and lots of laughter, while enjoying views that were amazing. This condo was so quiet, too. If you like shells, the absolute best place is right across the street! (My family drove to East Beach and literally found ONE shell. We then drove to Jamaica Beach and Pirate Beach and didn't find any and it was soooo crowded). But at Babe's Beach we found 3 - one gallon bags of shells! So, there is no need to try any other beaches. The sand was so soft and not crowded at all. I highly recommend this condo if you want to see the best views in Galveston and have a great time!

Also, it was easy to check in, find the room and parking was easy.

Great vacation experience Andrea. Thanks

  • 5 of 5

Place was clean with what appeared to be new appliances. Beds were very comfortable and both my wife and I slept great all night. Would highly recommend this condo to others looking for a super place to stay while in Galveston. Oh, did I mention that the ocean view was terrific.

Wonderful and lovely condo

  • 4 of 5

This was our first trip to TX. We were very impressed with the overall quality of the condo. We really appreciated the supplies that were provide, especially the extra fluffy towels! The view from the balcony was spectacular! Recommend this condo, good value and great place to vacation.

(Our only minus ( giving 4 not 5 stars) was the unmistakable smell of moth balls on the balcony coming from a neighbors balcony. We assumed it was to keep the birds away. It did curtail our use of the balcony. We did tell the person at the front desk and he came to the condo and confirmed the smell was coming from a neighbor's balcony and would follow up.)

Nice View

  • 4 of 5

The overall outside of By The Sea is a bit worn....but this condo is nicely updated with a nice view of the beach and Gulf. Although it is on the busy seawall you won't know it because on the 10th floor you only see the beach and water! This location is central to most needs. Everything is provided for a comfortable getaway--from small appliances to Internet Access. The owner was gracious and attentive. We will definitely rent again!

Very nice condo with a million dollar view!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in another condo at By The Sea before and enjoy the way the property is kept up, is always clean and the staff friendly. Our experience this trip was no different. Our condo was beautiful, the beds very comfortable and the view from the balcony (where we spent a fair amount of time) was amazing.

"By the Sea" condominiums are located directly on the Galveston Seawall, directly across the street from Seawall Beach, walking distance to great restaurants, fast food, discount shopping, bike rentals, and numerous activities and attractions. Please make sure and check out our other 5 star condo, located just next door, at The Dawn, on the 3rd floor, with beautiful designer furnishings, totally remodeled, and has a fabulous unobstructed view to the ocean. The property ID is 651481. Also, please check back with us in a couple of weeks, as we are adding a gorgeous 1 bedroom unit, directly on the beach, and it's been totally renovated and newly furnished.

We love your business and can't wait for your visit.

Best Wishes,

Andrea
