Perched just a block from the sand, you'll have the nearby beach and the beauty of Stewart Beach State Park as your playground. A short walk puts you within easy reach of Galveston's popular dining and shopping options.

Feel the stress melt away as the waves crash at your feet on the sun-soaked Texas shores. Let yourself slowly melt into vacation mode as you relax by the pool and the ocean breezes swirl around.

Head inside to make a quick meal in the fully equipped kitchen and then lounge on the couch while you surf the cable channels on the large flatscreen TV. This bright and comfortable condo is the perfect spot to unwind in peace.

Great layout and very spacious. Stylish decor. Perfect location right off the pool, with easy access. Close to downtown shopping and restaurants - would highly recommend it!

This was the perfect place for us for our vacation. We were very happy and pleased overall with the condo. ..although there could have been more cleaning done in the shower area for our taste, we were happy we chose this place and would go back again.

There was a couple of minor issues but I would come back here any time!

This Condo was gorgeous, with a sexy, cozy feel/vibe! Perfect for our anniversary getaway! Wish we could've stayed at least a whole week. Because we arrived late, (at 11:01 to be exact) we were not able really enjoy the amenities that were right at our fingertips... Nobody was at the front desk, at arrival, so we could not get our keys till the next day, which was not that big of a deal, but a minor inconvenience. Just wish I could have soaked up and enjoyed the outdoor area/pool /spa more. It was very clean, well decorated, peaceful and relaxing atmosphere, I will definitely be back! Would love to book a bigger condo and bring the family too!
Staff was very helpful and kind. GREAT vacation, just not long enough... Thanks again for the way y'all handled the reservation mix-up in the beginning! This Condo was exactly what I was looking for and wanted when planning this trip. Worked out perfectly!

Super condo, clean and nice view
Thomas S. Aug 2019
I loved the quietness of the condo and the access to the pool deck from the gated porch. The view was fantastic from the pool area. Use of the grills just outside the condo was very handy. The ice machine in the freezer had a very large bucket and provided all the ice we needed for beach trips. Overall very satisfied with no complaints.
Antonio G. Jul 2019
The room was well put together and very elegant for our getaway. One of the best things about the room was the smell, it smelled very pleasant and clean. The pools were also a plus. Highly recommend these condos!

The place is beautiful and the staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating.
TRACEY M. Nov 2018
The place was amazing! Stayed her for 1 night with an extended checkout time. The weather was cold and very windy. Didn’t get to enjoy the amenities outdoors, however the room was very comfy and warm.
Esther G. Nov 2018
Great accommodations with easy access to pool and spa, nice location with ocean view and close to city attractions. Very clean and quiet. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Margaret C. Nov 2018
We had a great time in Galveston at Emerald Cove! It was clean and perfect for the two of us. The front desk was very helpful and ease of parking, entering and exiting the building made it very relaxing. Being right next to the pool / hot tub was awesome as most times we felt like it was our own private area. Upon our return, we hope to stay at Emerald Cove again!
P d. Nov 2018

Wendy G. Oct 2018
As a busy executive who tries to disconnect for a few days every couple of months this property was perfect! So quiet (off season/early Oct) beautifully maintained and homey. I will absolutely be back!
Elaine P. Sep 2018
Loved this studio condo. Clean, quiet, same level as pool, all needed amenities. However, HATED all the hidden fees. advertised a base price & does not tell you about the fees charged by the management company Vacasa. There is a cleaning fee, a resort fee and another fee I can't think the name of so after taxes the place was close to 50% more. So, as I said loved the place but buyer beware.
Paul H. Jul 2018
nice place but it was a little like fort knox with the security to have access to the room. Parking was a bit dificult with parking in the guest area of the garage and trying to get to the elevators through the electronic garage dors. Wish there were parking spaces in the secure area of the garage, not just for the owners. The bright orange wrist bands were a tad bit annoying too for VRBO guests.
John M. Jul 2018
Very clean and nice condo. The pool right off the condo patio was a plus.
Misty M. Jul 2018
I traveled with my 2 kids (4 and 11) and we had a great time. The room was spacious and the ac worked great! The bed was comfortable and there were plenty of towels and such for our stay. It was nice being on the same level as the pool which gave easy access to the room if needed. It was almost like we had the pool to ourselves in the evening. Will plan on coming back.
Angela C. Jul 2018
The condo was beautifully decorated and was very easily accessible to the pool. The concierge was friendly and very knowledgeable. The neighborhood was not traveler friendly and the beaches are dirty.
Paula S. Jul 2018
Beautiful pool and spa area, tastefully decorated, clean condo, theater and game rooms in common area - lovely!
Stevie D. Jul 2018
Overall our stay at this condo was a good one. The room is spacious, well stocked, clean, and suited our needs perfectly. The pool/hot tub area does need some updating though. There were tiles coming loose, peeling paint, etc. The game room, theater, and amenities inside this building are fantastic!
Becky S. Jun 2018
Staying at Emerald Cove was perfect for my son & daughter and me. This condo is on the main floor and provides great parking. The patio leads directly out to the very large hot tub and gorgeous pool that overlooks a beautiful beach view. It's also on the same floor as the game room & theatre room. It's complete with all necessary amenities. The bed is plush and our stay was wonderful and does not disappoint. Thank You! Thank You!
Kimberly M. Jun 2018
Beautiful room with the best possible access to the pool and hot tub. Being on the same floor as the game room was also amazing. A beautifully maintained building. We will be going back.

Brittney V. Mar 2018
We loved our stay for our 6 year wedding anniversary! Our favorite part? The pool-sized hot tub right outside the door! Clean and comfortable, we would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful condo
M Paula W. Jan 2018
The condo is located on the first actual floor of occupancy for the building, the sixth floor. It has the check-in desk, two large pools and a hot pool all within a few feet. Also on that level are the media room, sitting area and other amenities. The Gulf view is wonderful. Lots of lounge chairs and patio furniture make the deck area enjoyable.
Mary L. Nov 2017
We are locals then my husband suffered a hip injury and was unable to navigate the stairs in our 3 story bay home. This was the perfect spot to spend a few days while he recovered. Loved being able to walk right out to the pool deck and watch the sun set. Really wonderful unit and location!
Tiffany M. Nov 2017
A perfect sized studio with plenty of room, updated & great location to see the sunrise, the building is very nice with great amenities!
George J. Oct 2017
Both excellent
Susan S. Oct 2017
This condominium, although a studio, is surprisingly roomy. It is beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, and equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The 6th floor location is ideal for enjoying all the property has to offer. Quite, upscale, and sophisticated, with spectacular views.
Kristin E. Oct 2017
The unit we stayed in opened out to the pool, covered lounge areas, and outdoor cooking facilities. We felt like we had our own outdoor space to enjoy but there were never any crowds or loud noise to detract from the atmosphere. The view from the unit was amazing - out over the gulf and the gorgeous pool & lounge areas. Although it's a studio apartment, there was plenty of living space with a king size bed and pull out sofa bed for up to 4 people to stay comfortably. The hospitality was amazing too-we were invited to Astro's viewing parties in the Theatre, and there was always coffee & donuts out in the morning in the lobby. Game room, fitness center, theatre room & wine room were available throughout our stay.
