Bada Beach was so attractively decorated and comfortable with all it had to offer. Valorie was so helpful and easy to work with providing so much extra information about all of the attractions and offerings of the area. We really enjoyed meeting Valorie and Vince and appreciated their extra efforts to make sure everything was perfect in their "little slice...

We enjoyed your condo very much and so appreciated the well stocked kitchen and bathroom and, of course, the great ocean view from the deck. Your condo was nice and clean and had everything we needed and more. Your updated bathroom shower was great and very much appreciated. All the tourist and map info provided was also very helpful.

About the neighbourhood
Galveston Island, located directly on the seawall, top floor, 5 units back from the front with fabulous view of the gulf. If you look off the side of the balcony you can see back to the lake and watch the planes take off and land at Scholes airport. Night time skyline views of Galveston.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Houston Hobby: 68.0 km
The closest airport is Hobby Airport, located south of downtown Houston. This is the most direct unless you have a private plane and can land at Scholes airport in Galveston. It is less than an hour drive to Galveston from Hobby. IAH airport, (the large international airport) is located north of downtown Houston. This airport is about 73 miles from our condo and will take about an hour and twenty minutes. I prefer Hobby for a few reasons, shorter drive time to Galveston and the rental cars seem to be less expensive. Since you are already south of Houston, you can even stop at NASA on the way to the condo for a sightseeing tour should you arrive early enough. <BR>Either airport offers a very direct route to the island, using I-45 which actually ends on Galveston Island.
Activities nearby
Fishing Nearby, There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive, Water Park Nearby, Nearest Beach: 1.6 km.
