Beautiful condo, misleading listing
This is a beautiful condo in our favorite facility in Galveston (we've stayed here half a dozen times before). Pros: The bed is comfy, the unit is well-maintained, and the location perfect. Why the low rating from me? Because the listing is completely misleading and the owner is lax! The description says "open concept one-bedroom" but this is FALSE. It is actually a studio! Another couple decided to join us at the last moment, and we offered the fold-out couch to them. Imagine our surprise when we arrived to find a single large room! It is NOT a one-bedroom, as there is no separation or door (more like a large hotel room). If you look very closely at the pictures online you can see a folding screen along the far wall. That is the entirety of "privacy" for the bedroom! (Needless to say, our friends opted not to stay with us, but scrambled for a last-minute hotel room!) This unit could work for a couple with a couple of kids, but definitely not for more than 2 adults! Additionally, because we have stayed at the Galvestonian many times, we know how quickly the chairs and umbrellas pre-book. I called 2 days ahead of our stay and they had no record of our reservation. I emailed the owner in a panic, finally got a response 6 hours later, and was told she never tells the Galvestonian until the night before the booking starts. Needless to say, there were no chairs available by the time we could reserve them, so we stayed at the pool. All in all, a disappointing trip for an anticipated relaxing holiday weekend.
