This condo was AWESOME! And the views were AMAZING!
For the price of a hotel room, we stayed in this cute 2 bedroom condo. The deck is huge as it spans the entire 24 feet of the condo. My daughter would've slept out there if we had let her. My dog ran laps. Its big..
It was just the three of us and the dog, but there was plenty of room for several others and it not feel crowded. The extra half bath is a life saver!
The kitchen is full size, not one of those hotel mini-things. I gladly cooked breakfast both days and dinner on the patio is worth the rental cost alone!
The beach is literally 2 minutes away. And I mean a real beach, not a spit of sand in front of the seawall. There's nothing like a morning run with the pooch watching the sun rise with the fishermen, and a few revelers still at it from the night before...
We also visited Schlitterbahn, which is also just a 5 minute drive from the condo.
This place has it all and we will be back!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you were able to enjoy the Rally at our condo. Always lots of people in town for the extended weekend. You were wise to reserve early. We look forward to your return next year if your schedule allows - and yes even though it is the Rally, you will receive our returning guest discount.

Great Place to Stay

We totally enjoyed our stay in the condo. The three of us had plenty of room and we especially enjoyed sitting on the balcony. We went for long walks along the seawall and enjoyed the quick access to Galveston restaurants and The Strand.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5
When my daughter and son-in- law relocated to the Houston area, I was looking forward to vacationing in a state I had never been to.I had never used vrbo before, but after contacting Marilyn, I knew this was the way to start planning our next vacation.
Not being familiar with the area, Marilyn was so helpful. She had great recommendations, where to eat, shops, sightseeing and so much more!! Every time I had a question, she was quick to respond.
The condo was perfect, very clean & spacious, the balcony over looking the ocean was amazing!! The property is beautiful. The staff was so nice!! I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a great experience.
Thank-you again Larry & Marilyn for sharing your condo with us! I wish we could have met, maybe next time because we will definitely be returning!!

As a travel agent, booking a vacation for myself is a challenge. As a VRBO fan, I look for location, cleanliness, amenities and an engaging manner from the owners! WOW, I got it all! Just far enough from the heavy traffic, best beds on the island, gorgeous pool, great office staff, clean, well stocked and the MOST amazing owner! Thank you, Marilyn! We wanted to steal that coffee maker and the mattresses, but were afraid you might notice!! So many owners do not understand the importance of a good night's sleep, but my guess is that Marilyn sleeps in these beds on occasion!
If you are looking for a great view, good value and peace and quiet, you will not go wrong choosing Tropical Sundancer! Need a smaller condo with the same great service and style? Call Marilyn. I have it on good authority that she has acquired a one bedroom at Maravilla for my next solo runaway!

What an awesome view!

What a GREAT place! My family and I have been going to Galveston for years for several “mini-vacations” a year and have stayed all over the place. That is until we rented our first condo from Marilyn and Larry! We are hooked now and don’t stay anywhere else. The furnishings are gorgeous at all of their condos and the appliances are all up to date and in working order. This was our first stay in this particular condo and it may be our favorite yet! It’s not hard to miss the sunrise in the mornings when all you have to do is roll over in the super comfy king size bed and look out the sliding glass door. We were up early every morning to make sure we didn’t miss it! Beautifully decorated and all the comforts to make you feel right at home.

Thank once again you Marilyn and Larry for your hospitality and sharing your beautiful place with us...
See you soon,
Mike, Linda and Family

Activity and Interests

"Galveston Tropical Sundancer" is on the Seawall, so you can stroll and watch the waves or bike from one end to the other. Your vacation paradise is close enough to downtown so you can experience all that Galveston was to offer - shopping, antiques, restaurants, The Strand, cruise ship dockings - yet far enough away that you are not in "tourist heaven".

Since you will be on the near west end of Galveston Island, you are also close to Schiltterbahn Water Park, Moody Gardens, the newly opened Moody Gulf course, the movie theatre and miniature golf.
