  • Karen's condo at Emerald by the Sea was perfect for us!


    Beautifully decorated and supremely comfortable, with every amenity. The balcony and comfortable furniture with a fabulous view of the Gulf was the perfect place for morning coffee and evening cocktails. The facilities at the Emerald were super and the owners we met were very friendly and welcoming.We plan to return next year. I'm giving this place a 5--hope this means perfect!

  • Great Stay in Galveston


    This property was better than described and met or exceeded all of my family's needs for our short vacation to Galveston. The property was clean and safe, which was very important to me. The balcony area was fantastic and many hours were spent just relaxing gazing out at the waves and the beach. I would definitely stay here again - the property owner was very responsive to our needs. Thanks Karen!

  • Comfortable and close


    Unfortunately, I was in town due to my mother being transferred to the Hospital in Galveston; hours from our home. The first place I tried was too far. I’m so glad I found this spot as it was a 10 minute walk from the hospital, right across the street from the beach, and you can easily order food via DoorDash. The Master bed was super comfortable but do note, the bed consists of 2 split twin mattresses versus a full one piece king mattress; something to consider for couples. The new sofa and love seat recliners are perfect for relaxing. The host is very nice and quickly responds to calls and emails. The front desk could not locate my reservation when trying to check in, but a quick text to Karen and she was on it and the issue resolved within a matter of seconds. I look forward to staying here in the futures, just hope it’s for a more enjoyable and relaxing event.

  • Super clean and comfy, awesome view and amenities


    We stayed for a few days during our fall break visiting family in the Houston area. This place was excellent, very clean. Sofas with reclining chairs were super comfy! Great view to the ocean and a huge balcony with a large table and nice lounge area to sit outside. We didn't cook but kitchen was bright and clean. We used the laundry which was so nice to have in the unit. The main bedroom had a beautiful view and bed was super comfortable. The blinds really do block the light, suggest keeping them down during the day if you leave otherwise that bedroom gets a little hot. Second bedroom was perfect for my father-in-law who came with us. The kids (girls 10 and 6) loved the third bedroom with the bunk beds! The amenities of the building are really the selling point. The pool area is gorgeous with a long heated pool and a smaller “cool pool” next to it and the hot tub on the other side of the outdoor bbq / bar area. There was no service but you can reserve those areas if desired, pool area had plenty of chairs and a nice shaded area with couches. There is a large game room down the hall from the pool and our kids loved that - pool table and foosball table. They also had a TV and lots of board games in the game room if desired.Only disappointment was the gym is only open to visitors (renters / non-permanent residents) from Fri-Sun and we arrived Sun evening through Wed. They would not allow me to go wearing a mask or even if I said I would leave if a resident also came. Very conservative considering where we are with Covid restrictions in most areas (Oct 2021).There is Russo's pizza right there you just go down to the first floor and out a gate so that was an easy pick up for lunch by the pool one day. Dawn Donuts is next door and was delicious! There is also a Chili's and McDonald's right across the parking lot as well as a Wing's beach and clothing store. It did take several minutes to walk to the beach as you walk across the lot and then cross a busy street and then across a large parking area for the beach. We didn't stay long but did enjoy walking on the beach. The owner did not have any beach chairs but had some sand toys and beach and pool towels. It wouldn't hurt them to have a few chairs and an umbrella available, considering there was no option to rent chairs or umbrellas.We enjoyed Miller's Seawall Grill, excellent food and service. Willie G's had good food but terrible service. Moody Gardens was a must!
