Great property and great location right across from Stewart Beach. We liked it because it was away from the crowded main area of Seawall. Everyone in the complex was very nice and helpful. Many of the residents were nice and would talk to you. The pool is great. Nice condo, nice area. Watch out for the sliding door in the living room going to the balcony. It is very difficult to open and close.

If you are looking for a beautiful condo with a view, you found it. Complex has tons of amenities, but our favorite part was that everything in this condo was pristine and upscale. You can walk to Stewart beach, or enjoy a sunrise from either of your two balconies with full ocean view.

The condo was beautifully decorated & so very clean! We felt very safe with a security guard & every door had security locks to enter. The beach view is ahhhhhmazing! We enjoyed sitting on the balcony & hanging out in the glassed living area with a panoramic view of Galveston!! We would definitely stay there again!!

Upon arriving the desk clerk, Cody, informed us that we would be required to wear what looked like a hospital bracelet for our entire stay. He said it was to make sure that people in the building belonged there. The building itself is secured by doors that need a key fob to get in and have security guards so not sure why the need. It should also be noted that the condos are also occupied by permanent residents who are not required to wear any sort of bracelet so not understanding the need. Cody also let us know that we could reserve the movie area and he would do it if he liked us. He was rude and condescending and it was not a good first impression. Our condo itself was absolutely beautiful and tastefully done. It had plenty of space and was just across the street from the beach. The beach does cost $20 to enter but you can drive about a mile down and use the other entrances for free. The location of the condo leaves something to be desired as all the restaurants are about a 10 min drive away. But it was a beautiful place and the upside is that it has a kitchen which a hotel would not. For the 5 day stay I would probably just book a hotel next time so I can be closer to the attractions, not pay daily beach fees, and possibly avoid power tripping desk clerks whose only claim to fame is making $7.50 an hour.
