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

Older Property, Great View

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at By The Sea. They had signs around apologizing for their "winter work." They were fixing the elevator, planting flowers and making it Spring/Summer ready. We loved our view. We loved our stay. Andrea was very responsive to all communication, and the small issue we had, she made sure to let us know it would be addressed immediately. We hope to be back some day.

Beautiful Retreat - Worth It

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed elsewhere in Galveston for cheaper but this condo was worth the extra.

Pros: Well stocked with pots, pans, coffee supplies, kitchen hand towels, dish cleaning supplies, lush bath towels; lots of room; peaceful decor; and the beds were actually comfortable! The bar has two stools that provide extra seating. Kitchen was big, we did a lot of cooking. Dining and living room furniture were comfy. The wall between the living room and bedroom with the balcony can actually move to create a large open space. The balcony was twice as long as I thought it would be. Water pressure in the showers was good. Free WiFi with clear instructions. Check out was super easy.

Cons: The round dining table and rectangular coffee table are glass top so I'b be cautious with toddlers. The sink water pressure is low. Only one copy of the key is available during your stay, maybe ask for another if you need it? There was a $15 parking fee per vehicle that we were not made aware of until we checked in.

Not what we expected

  • 3 of 5

Building worn, tired, parts were dirty, some things like some air conditioning condensers are being reattached. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. We had and still have had no contact with the owner. We arrived at 4:15 and expected to get right in. But the staff had no info and said we should have received an email from the owner. Numerous phone calls and 40 minutes later, the staff got the combination to the key lock box and we got to get into the room. The furnishings were acceptable but in my opinion the number of fancy plates ribbons bowls etc was excessive and detracted from the enjoyment of the unit rather than adding to it. The same thing can be said of the 20 or so throw pillows.

Love the location and decor

  • 4 of 5

Very friendly staff working and people that live there. The condo is clean. Would be nice if light switches turned lights on in bedrooms and to have kitchen towels and hot pads for when cooking. Great experience overall.

"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
