vacation rental description

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!

Beautiful home away from home

Review submitted: January 26, 2014   Date of arrival: January 24, 2014

We just returned from a great weekend at this beautiful home away from home. It is just like it looks in the pictures. So nice. Not one bad thing to say about it. It's close to everything, but it's out enough to be away from the hustle and bustle of the busy part of town. You will not be disappointed if you choose this unit for your stay. The owners are very nice and easy to work with. We loved it, and we hope to return again.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Highly Recommend !

Review submitted: January 23, 2014   Date of arrival: January 18, 2014

No regrets with this condo. Great view, quiet, and clean! We came to have a relaxing, restful getaway and this was the perfect place to stay. The only negatives at all were a dishwasher full of dishes that had to be unloaded and put away upon our arrival. I had wondered why there were only a couple of glasses in the beautiful cabinets. Also, the night before leaving we decided to do a load of laundry. We opened the washer and found still damp towels that had never been put into the dryer. So we had to rewash them before we started our laundry. I think both of these issues are an oversight of whoever cleans. (We wondered why the master bath only had two towels in it!)

The owner is the easiest person to work with that I have ever had. I have rented six previous times in the past from others; this is the second time in Galveston. The property managers were all kind and helpful. I would definitely rent again from David.
