About the Owner

We are both from the Houston area. My husband got this condo as a early wedding gift because we both love the beach. Most important we were married on beach in front of our condo and used the cabana for our reception. It was great!! We hope you enjoy your stay in our unit as much as we do. Should you have any questions or concerns please let us know. But the staff at the Galvestonian are the best and can handle most any issue that may come up. Have a great time!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Pat,

Review Condo 409 – Galvestonian

Dates stayed Dec 20 – Dec 31, 2014



It was perfection!



I was searching for a place to take a short sabbatical. I was under

doctor’s orders to get some rest. I booked one week, but ended up staying almost two weeks. It was perfectly peaceful, with an amazing view of the gulf. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The walks on the beach, the heated pool, and the hot tub are an added bonus. The condo is clean and comfortable. I enjoyed mornings and evenings sitting on the deck overlooking the pool and the gulf.



Most of all, the owners are very kind and accommodating. When I asked to extend my visit an extra week, they did everything possible to make that happen. I will be back on a regular basis. It’s the perfect getaway away from the noise of the seawall, but only a five minute drive for a great dinner or walk on the seawall. Thank you for the perfect getaway. I’m already planning my next trip.

Awesome location!

  • 4 of 5
We absolutely loved the location. The beach was groomed every morning and you could rent beach chairs and umbrellas out on the beach. The pool and hot tub were just perfect. The Galvestonian is away from all of the busy areas on Seawall Blvd. and is a quiet and private retreat. The room is on the 4th floor overlooking the pool. We liked the room location because we could check on our 17 year old daughters every once in awhile. :) But, even near the pool, it is still a quiet location.
We did have a difficulty with the Galvestonian staff. We wanted to switch out our towels and get new towels during the week. They said that we couldn't do that unless we paid a fee, but they didn't know how much the fee was. The woman at the front desk thought it was about $20 or $30 to switch out towels! At first she wouldn't switch out towels until we found out from the owner how much we had to pay? Finally, she said that we could switch out the towels, but that we might have to pay the owner the fee? She kind of made me feel like a second class citizen because we rented from the owner, not them. The Galvestonian cleaning staff also didn't leave extra toilet rolls (just the one on the roll), liquid hand soap (just empty containers) or cleaner to keep the kitchen counters clean. We had to go out and purchase these items.
Once we got in touch with the owner of the condo, she did make things right by immediately getting in touch with the Galvestonian staff. So the owner is there for you to handle any problems (and we didn't have to pay for the towel switch). We appreciated that. Just kind of confused why Galvestonian staff wasn't on their best. We had read that the staff was awesome in other reviews, so it may have just have been a rare staffing issue.
The condo was clean. We appreciated that. It has not been updated in quite some time though. Personally, the location and views made it a non-issue, but it would be nice to have an updated place.
We ended up having a fantastic vacation. The towel issue etc. were really just very minor inconveniances. And the owner made things right as soon as she found out about them. We would recommend this condo.

Nice place!!!

  • 5 of 5
We've been to Galvestonian before, but rented a condo directly from their website. This time they were all booked. Found this property here and it was available . Sooo glad we did!
Condo was very clean, had everything we needed, beautiful view of the ocean. Except for a small nuisance with the balcony door being hard to open and close (it was getting stuck all the time), everything else was perfect. Had a really great time. Galvestonian is by far the best place to stay for people looking to relax and enjoy the beach. Their private beach was the cleanest. And this particular condo was as nice as the ones we had rented before, but at a much better price. Couldn't have asked for more !! Thank you so much for sharing your property with us !
