Also - WiFi is now included! Gorgeous, fully renovated, one bedroom condo on historic Galveston Island ready for your dream getaway. Our condo is located on the Seawall, top floor with a fabulous view of the gulf. Enjoy morning sun, afternoon shade, top of the line balcony furniture including a glider and two comfortable chairs and ottomans. There is lots to do on the island, Moody Gardens, Museums, Historic Home Tours, great restaurants, beaches, fishing, etc. Close to shopping, Walmart, Kroegers, Target, etc. A short drive to NASA, Gulf Greyhound Race Park, and, of course Houston! BadaBeach has been thoughtfully designed and professionally decorated with quality fixtures, furniture, bedding and utensils. The bathroom is handicap assist. There is a walk in shower with grab bars, a high riser toilet and high sink. For those who may have trouble sitting on the high stools at the counter, a bistro table with chairs has been provided. Or use it to just enjoy a meal on the balcony! The kitchen has granite countertops, self clean oven, microwave over the range, dishwasher, and refrigerator with ice maker. I have stocked the kitchen with quality cookware, utensils, and small appliances, toaster, blender, etc. We try to supply the extras for you.....dishwashing liquid, dishwasher detergent, cleaning supplies, paper towels, dishtowels, as well as sugar, salt and pepper. The master bedroom has a queen size bed with luxury pillows. There also are an array of pillows just in case you have a preference. The lamps have 'touch lighting' so just a touch and they turn on or off. Ceiling fan, flat screen TV with DVD player, clock, hangers, and a full size dresser and closet. The bunk bed area present in most condos was changed in ours. This is now an excellent storage space for suitcases, cases of drinks, etc. The living room has a custom sofa, replacing the pull out bed , flat screen tv , CD player, books, games, magazines, a bistro set, lots of lamps for reading too! Our condo is available for two guests, however, on occasion, we may accept up to 3 gentle guests. This is on a case by case basis. The condo is NOT childproof, having expensive, breakable accessories. The cabinetry is custom and CAN NOT be climbed on. Our goal is to share our condo, not have it as a supermarket style rental unit. By doing this, we are able to maintain it to our level of quality, condition, and do not hesitate to supply it with brand name and top quality items. This is also our personal vacation getaway. Our community hosts three pools, one heated, a hot tub, exercise and game room and tropical gardens. Although we are animal lovers, we do not allow pets of any kind or any size. Sorry! Smoking is permitted on the balcony only. We encourage you to email us with any questions you may have! Thank you. Please note: Cancellation policy is different than posted. Please check with owner.More

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.
How to get there
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. Either airport offers a very direct route to the island, using I-45 which actually ends on Galveston Island.
