My wife and I stayed in this condo and were very please with accommodations. Everything was as described. the view from the balcony, from inside the living room was beautiful.

The condo is lovely with an amazing ocean view. The recent updates are perfect. This is a wonderful place for a couple. We sat on the balcony and watched dolphins while drinking our morning coffee. The condo is close to Galveston's hot spots, but far enough away that you can enjoy a more relaxing experience. I recommend this condo to...

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...

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.
