With a view of the warm waters and white sugar sands of the Gulf of Mexico from the private balcony, a stay at Casa Del Mar 257 - La Costa puts you close to the fun attractions and delicious dining that Galveston offers.

Walk down to the renowned, mural-covered Galveston Seawall; at 10 miles, it boasts the title of Largest Continuous Sidewalk in the world. Walk, bike or skate the Seawall and explore local beaches like Babe’s Beach as well as local shops and dining. Float your cares away or take the plunge down one of the many waterslides at Schlitterbahn Waterpark. Learn about marine life and see tuxedo penguins up-close at the Moody Gardens Aquarium. Enjoy nostalgic thrill rides and old-fashioned midway games over the Gulf of Mexico at Pleasure Pier. Reel in that big catch off the Galveston Fishing Pier or rent surfboards and learn how to hang ten with a beginner’s class. Start your day with homemade donuts from Home Cut Donuts. Casual family-friendly dinner fare is served up at The Spot, or grab a cold local brew at Galveston Island Brewing.

When you stay at La Costa, you’ll enjoy Casa Del Mar’s delightful amenities against a backdrop of lush landscaping. Cool off with a dip in one of the two sparkling pools or enjoy a relaxing soak in the hot tub. Cook up hotdogs and hamburgers on one of the community BBQ grills and enjoy a family lunch at the picnic tables or grill up that fresh catch for dinner. Make use of the onsite coin-operated laundry and have clean clothes every day of your trip.

Perfect for your next romantic or family beach getaway, this one-bedroom, one-bath Galveston vacation condo has everything you need.

Your party of six will enjoy sweet dreams at La Costa with a queen-size bed in the primary bedroom, built-in twin-over-twin bunk beds perfect for kids in the hall and a queen-size sleeper sofa. Relax with a nice hot shower or a long soak in the tub of the full bathroom. Fresh linens and plenty of clean towels are provided in anticipation of your arrival.

Fully equipped with appliances, cookware, and utensils, the compact kitchen makes it easy to prepare a hearty breakfast before a fun-filled day on the water or craft everything from sandwiches and snacks for your beach cooler or delicious surf and turf dinners. Grab a casual seat at the bar counter or enjoy a sweet dinner for two at the table.

Curl up with a good beach read in the chair or grab a spot on the plush sleeper sofa and watch a favorite movie together on the large flat-screen TV. Stay connected and surf the internet, stream music, or check your email with the free Wi-Fi. Head out the sliding glass doors to the private, covered balcony. Sure to become your favorite spot, pour yourself a fresh cup of coffee in the morning and revel in the scents and sounds of the beach. In the evening, delight in the gorgeous colors of the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico.

The condos are small and a little dated but the location and view are outstanding

The only complaint I have is the uncomfortable bunk beds. The mattress/padding is so thin it made for uncomfortable sleeping for those sleeping there. Everything else was great!

This property has the expected angled view of the beach and is at the very front of the building. Therefore, using the elevator was extremely convenient with handicap license plate. We had an issue and that the refrigerator had not been defrosted and was completely frozen up. therefore our food spoiled overnight. Management was responsive, got the refrigerator fixed late in the day and worked with us for compensation. We are very pleased and hoping to use the unit again very soon highly recommended.
