Excellent vacation

  • 5 of 5

This place was great! We did have a hiccup with the shower but I was able to speak with the owner that night and she got the maintenance man over first thing that morning. Very comfortable condo and we will definitely be back!

Best Ever

  • 5 of 5

This was the best vacation we have had.Being able to look out at the ocean from the living area and able to go to sleep and waking up to seeing this was great.The master bed was like sleeping on a cloud.There was plenty of space for all of our family.The pool area had 2 gas grill and all utensils you need for cooking,the staff was very kind and helpful.The oweners were very easy to contact and very accommodating to any needs. husband and I are planning on staying there on our anniversary. I was amazed that it was so quiet inside (no street noise)and a wonder full breeze out on the balcony.I would recommend this condo for any one

Exceptional Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was amazing...the view was refreshing and we were able to do just what we intended to do...Relax and Have Fun! Our family enjoyed the amenities provided inside and outside of the condo and the kids were pleased to find a family of pigeons outside the guest room window. Being footsteps away from the beach and a few blocks from all of Galveston's major attractions was an added bonus. We felt right at home and wish we could have stayed longer. Our family is looking forward to returning throughout the summer!

Major depression

  • 1 of 5

IF you want to go back in time this is the place to go.It was the worst condo i have ever stayed in at by the sea i have never seen anything like it in my life and i'm 53 yrs.old.Ower was very nice and i would be too if i had a condo that looked liked the 60's.Very depressing gloomy a total shock.I love coming to galveston beach ,but this place did't make you think you were at the beach it felt like you went back in time.I would not stay there anymore even if i was told could stay free it was awful and totallly cabinets were so musty the dishes smelled the same way.I wish i could get my money back but i know that's out of the question.But maybe my review will save one else from this condo of gloom.There is not one thing nice i can say about this place.ONWER please update your condo it's AWEFUL !!!!!!!

Simly the best!

  • 5 of 5

I am almost afraid to brag about how wonderful the condo and our stays have been because selfishlily, I want the condo all to myself, but with saying that , I also want Leroy and Virginia to be successful with sharing their condo!

Actually, we have stayed at many condos at "By the Sea" and absolutely love this place. The manager and security are simply the best, they do an excellent job and you can tell it is not just a job, they really care about you! They always recognize us, even though we are usually there only once a year for a week. We ride a Harley and if you are a bike owner you know how protective we are of our bikes! Being able to feel comfortable and that everything is safe and secure and will be taken care of is truly a plus.

Virginia and Leroy's condo is simply the best! It makes a tremendous difference when you are working directly with the owner. On top of that, an owner that also really cares about you coming, staying and completely enjoying THEIR condo and the experience!

As others have said, the description on the website is compelty accurate. What you cannot feel on the website is the care, love and feeling that you are completely welcome to share a home. These folks are proud of their condo and that they can share it with you.

It defiantly is not a party place that is loud and rowdy; it is a quiet, secure place that makes you feel like you own a piece of Galveston and you are home and very comfortable.

Thank you Leroy and Virginia!

We agree that the staff is awesome and play an important part in making your overall stay feel safe, thereby making your overall getaway very successful. Hope to see you for many more years to come! Again we thank you for your business! Leroy and Virginia
