Property Details

Updated: May 23, 2015
King Suite, Queen, Adult size Bunks, Leather Sleeper Sofa, 2 full Baths Sleeps 8

You will be staying in 'DolphinSmileVIEW', a new luxury condo sitting on the seawall of Galveston Island. Pam & I invite you to share our latest creation, a playful dolphin theme for the family while still saving a little luxury for you. Pamper your senses with soft new leather and sandy-beach colored tile.

Your shower spa experience begins as water cascades over the aqua water-fall bathroom sink. Aqua glass wall decorations, float next to sand colored tiles, bringing back beach memories from the day's activities. Then, explore the many shower options, possibly beginning with the tropical 'rain' shower head. Close your eyes and drift through a misty tropical rain forest, OR adjust the wand height to match your height and cycle through the many options; spray, mist or invigorating massage. Men, if you like to shave in the shower, heat the mirror (no fog) with a little hot water, turn off the large rain head and stay warm with the 4 body sprays. Too much fun!

About the Owner

Pam & I live in Denver, but enjoy visiting Galveston with our Grandkids. They love to splash in the shallow beach water. Eliana wants to drive next time with her new learner's permit :-)

Satisfied Renter!

  • 5 of 5
We were there for two nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The condo was great with the exception of the renovations being done that we were not aware of. The work out area was only open when the office was open. Happy to see the complex stays on top of things which keep it looking great. Definitely planning a return trip.
Thank you!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you "enjoyed every minute" of the stay.
I believe the renovation you referred to is near the checkin office, and exercise room. I was not aware that the exercise room hours would be impacted. Thanks for the info. I agree, the new renovation up front will look great when finished. The renovation work is far from your condo, and that is why I did not mention it.
I look forward to seeing you again!

Great Condo on the Seawall!!

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here for Spring break. We had 3 adults and 3 kids ages 2 to 15. The owner Dave was very easy to work with and I would definitely rent from him again. The unit was nice and the kitchen was very well stocked. The shower in the master was great. We really liked the condo but we're less impressed with the pools and hot tub. They all needed a good cleaning. The grounds were nice and my little one enjoyed the bunnies that live there. The elevator location was not an issue for us and we really liked the end unit since there was nobody walking by and the views were nice. The unit was clean all except for the floor but Dave was right on top of the issue when he was told. I found the master bed comfy. Also we were supplied plenty of bath towels for 6 people as well. We cooked a lot in the unit and used the charcoal grill down at the heated was great. We would stay here again :)

Owner's Response: Hi Melissa,

Thanks for the review and helpful feedback. I have addressed your issues and know it will help us to improve.

Cute that your little one enjoyed the local bunnies, fun memories. As our kids graduate from age to age, they enjoy and notice changing attractions. We enjoy looking back through our grandkids photos.

Everything in the room was nice and organized. They even had a few board games which came in handy since it rained during our stay. Loved the kitchen! We cooked breakfast each morning. I also liked the washer and dryer. Thank you again so much! We had such a great time!

Owner's Response: I'm sorry it rained for you, we will schedule nicer weather next time :-) I'm glad you were able to use the board games (actually I forgot about those). My wife enjoys the convenience of the washer/dryer also for clothes. Of course, our cleaner takes care of the sheets and linens. Come back again someday! -Dave

Nice and Relaxing with a great VIEW!

We arrived to Dave and Pam's condo on January 16th and stayed until January 18th. The only complaint we had was that we had to leave to head back to Houston. This condo is so clean, peaceful, relaxing and just beautiful. My daughter had National Cheer competition that weekend and it was close to the venue but not right in the middle of all the traffic. The pictures can't even describe how comfy and cozy this place is. Also, the pool area is great! It was freezing outside but we enjoyed the hot tub after a day of cheer. Our family travels to Galveston quite often since we have family that live in Sea Isle. Dave and Pam's condo will definitely be our 1st choice when we stay again. You have everything you need...a home away from home for sure! 1 more thing...the cleaning crew does an awesome job!!

Owner's Response: Heather,

Thanks for the kind words and taking the time out of your busy schedule to share your experience. I will pass your praise on to our cleaners. They work hard for our guests and always appreciate the encouragement.

Guests like you make my day! I hope your daughter brought home special memories from the National Cheer competition!

Warm memories,

Dave & Pam

Galveston Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Our family rented 3 condos from Dave and Pam for a wonderful weekend. We were all on the same floor and the owners were so easy to work with and always available for any questions we had. There were extra pillows and blankets, plenty of dishes in the kitchen, and we were so close to all our events on the island. The condos were also very clean. Another plus was our unit was on the very end and I feel like we had one of the best views. Thanks again Dave and Pam for everything.
