Modern condo across from the seawall with shared pools, hot tubs & a gym!

Have a beach-themed family holiday with a stay in this charming Galveston vacation rental. With resort-style amenities like pools, hot tubs, and a fitness center, and a remarkable location across from the Seawall, this cozy rental is just the place to get away from it all!

Located about four miles from the Strand, and two miles on either side from various theme parks, this peaceful condo complex is an oasis unto itself with a prime location for exploration.

Set in slate blue tones with beachy decor and views of the Gulf, this condo is a pocket of serenity in your busy vacation. Grab the remote to flip through the cable channels, watch a funny cat video on YouTube via WiFi, or grab your favorite book and head out to the deck for views and a nice sea breeze.

The modern kitchenette with a gray-toned backsplash is just right for light meals or snacks. Make your first cup of coffee and stash cream in the mini-fridge, fry up a few eggs on the two-top burner, pop popcorn in the microwave, and put dirty dishes in the dishwasher. The compact size of the kitchen makes it easy for guests to enjoy Galveston's many eateries on the Strand and down the coast line!

This one-bedroom home ensures a good night's sleep for up to six guests (four adults maximum please). There's a queen bed in the bedroom, with a full bathroom next to it complete with a stand-up shower. There's a sofa bed in the living room for a second couple to share, and a set of bunk beds in the hallway just perfect for two kiddos.

This is a great family rental. Even guests who prefer not to deal with stairs can enjoy this condo with the nearby elevator, and there's a shared laundry room for the essential mid-vacation wash.

This condo complex keeps guests busy with two heated pools and two whirlpools tucked away in the garden, a tennis court (don't forget your racquets!), and a fitness/game room so parents can work out while the kids practice their Ping-Pong skills. And all resort fees are included in your rental rate, so there's no need to worry about additional charges!

Grab your fishing rods and hit the 61st Street Fishing Pier, or walk a short ways to the beach on the other side of the Seawall for a day of building sand castles and sipping cool drinks under an umbrella.

Family-friendly activities abound in this area. The old and young are sure to enjoy the zany Historic Pleasure Pier with its carnival attractions and greasy spoon eateries. Visit the Moody Gardens for a game of golf while the kids walk through the aquarium and natural history museum, then meet up for an IMAX viewing. Stay cool and get soaked at Schlitterbahn, a water park of epic proportions.

And after you've done it all, come back to the comfort of your own Texas vacation rental!

Overall not bad.
Katherine S. January 2018
We liked the location (near some restaurants and Walmart for supplies), clean and good supplies. There is an additional $23 resort fee that is charged when you arrive. Parking is good, laundry helps too!
Sarada K. December 2017
I went with my mom and son. We had a great time location was wonderful we could get to everything we wanted to go do with easy.
Jennifer M. October 2017
just the relaxation i was looking for
J B. October 2017
Great view, and the location across the street from the beach is great. But the state of repair of the unit leaves a lot to be desired. Every one of the patio chairs was broken, and the blinds were missing so many slats that we had no privacy from the sidewalk. The privacy lock was broken, meaning that our youngest could open the front door and leave the unit, which is pretty dangerous. The floor was so dirty that our feet turned black as soon as we stepped out of the shower. Not a complaint, but a note: The bunk beds are nice but hard for small children to climb in and out of. This is the kind of place that seems like a great deal but then makes you wish you'd spent a bit more money.
Manager Response:
We apologize if the floor was not as clean as it should have been and will make sure housekeeping addresses that. We have received permission from the owner to make some updates to the home that we believe will make a stay here even more enjoyable.
Sergio S. October 2017
Very good place and close to all store and the beach..
Shannon F. October 2017
We very much enjoyed our stay here. The condo has been updated very nicely, especially the shower. We also enjoyed renting through Vacasa. Our original dates were for Labor Day weekend, but Hurricane Harvey came and changed that. Vacasa reached out to us and offered another weekend for our trip. We very much appreciated this! Vacasa also did an excellent job of commmunicating everything we needed to know for our stay. We would stay here again.
Kathy K. July 2017
Location great, walkability to restaurants, Walmart etc... room good for short stay but needs maintenance. Queen sleepers Springs popping out and sqeeeked very loud everytime you move, shower handle kept falling off...
Manager Response:
The property manager has tightened the shower handle. We were unable to find any issues with the mattress at this time. Thanks!
Beverly V. July 2017
It was remodeled nicely and it was clean. Just note that there is no washer and dryer in the unit and no oven. There is a cooktop with two burners. Frig and freezer are nice size. There is a dishwasher but we could not find any soap for it. As I said, mattress needs replacing in bedroom. Kids loved the bunk beds!
Nancy S. July 2017
Air conditioner did not work. I received a partial refund but we had to relocate to a hotel that was more expensive and it ruined a day and a half of our vacation. The management was nice, but a full refund should have been offered and the cost of the more expensive hotel covered. Very disappointed.
Bobby H. July 2017
The room was what was expected. No surprises which was nice. We wanted to spend more time on the balcony but the neighbors next door sit out on their patio and smoke which is repulsive to me. I spoke with the front counter and they said it was the lady that owned the cafe there which we ate at and was good for breakfast. On the last night the ac went out and it was so hot we couldn't sleep because we were sweating so much. I called Vacasa and they couldn't get anyone there until the next morning by 10:30 still no one showed up. I emailed Vacasa with no response about it. I was really hoping to get a response but not even an email. It really made for a tiring miserable 7 hour drive home.
Charles P. June 2017
The room was very clean and it looked just like the pictures
Jonathan S. June 2017
Great location and unit. With better house cleanings between occupancies the unit would have been perfect.
April W. June 2017
This unit is great for hanging out with young ones. The mushroom pool was a welcome treat after sending time on the beach. This section of beach is just ok.
Kim B. May 2017
this condo was everything we needed it to be!!
cute, comfortable and a GREAT view!!
can't wait to return!! Thanks for sharing your piece of paradise!!
very easy to deal with reservation to check out!!
Melody M. May 2017
Me and my husband were very pleased with our stay. We enjoyed it a lot. Can't wait to come back!
Crystal G. April 2017
Very good location..very nice view . Staff was very friendly.
Jeremy S. March 2017
The condo was great. Great view, great atmosphere, VERY clean and kept up, and became home to us for 5 days. I was a tad irritated with gate and keycode access to a few of the amenities. Quite a let down in that department, but hopefully that is something that can be remedied by the management. I'd stay here again if that was fixed. I'd have loved to been able to work out or not worry about letting others or instructing them on how to open the gate into the heated pool area.
Kalynn H. March 2017
Overall we were very happy with our decision to stay here. No real complaints. Some things could have been a little better but I wasn't bothered by it.
Gina G. January 2017
Perfect little place for my daughter and I. Felt safe and master bed mattress was very comfortable.
Terry K. October 2016
The condo is just how it looks in the pictures. There are some pros and cons, depending what you are looking for.
The location is right on the tourist strip. Walmant and Sonic are close by and the beach is across the street. The pictures only show one pool, but there are actually 2 pools and the second one is real nice.
There were plenty of towels for the two of us and the shower is new and has decent water flow and pressure.
There are some plates and silverware and a few pots and pans but not much more. The cook top is a guessing game to figure out if the heat is on low or high. There is a coffee maker (with filters) that worked real well!!
If comfortable sleeping is important to you, bring your own sheets and mattress. The mattress is old and uncomfortable, the sheets are scratch and fall off the bed every night. The blanket is barely big enough to fit on the bed.
The balcony is a nice area and is the only place you will find an eating table in the condo.
There is an ice machine on your floor.
Ernest R. October 2016
Great location, convenient. Clean and fine for two adults. Responsive and very good care by Vacasa. TV signal was weak but could not be resolved. Ceiling noise at entrance (suspected to be pipes clanging) could not be resolved. Sofa is aging, and the fold out bed is not comfortable. Bedroom mattress needs updating. Overall very clean and recently updated. Nice shower and bathroom. Great cooling and fans. Great view of the Gulf and easy access from front of property and under-building parking. We stayed two weeks and were sorry to have to leave. Would have gladly stayed a month!
Danielle H. August 2016
We loved the condo we stayed in it had a huge patio that over looked the sea wall and beach, it had to friendly pools in property an hot tubs! Everything u need is on store in the unit! We enjoyed our stay can't wait to come back again
Tawnya D. August 2016
Great location right across from the beach! Restaurants near by. You have to eat at The Spot, great burgers!! Walmart around the corner. Condo needs improvement though, the pics were obviously taken when the place was brand new, now there is some where and tear, scuffed walls, needs new bedding especially for pull out couch and bunk beds. Bed could use a new mattress, big leak coming from shower and wood in bathroom soaked and water stained. The ceiling is low too. Overall we had a great time but when I think about the amount of money I payed I really expected it to be newer like the pictures make it look. If they upgraded some things I would stay again!
Robert H. July 2016
Excellent value for our sized family to stay comfortably. We didn't feel like we stayed at a hotel and it was worth it to be able to walk to the beach or the pools. I would recommend this rental to others for sure.
Melissa M. July 2016
We enjoyed all aspects of the condo. Kids loved the bunk beds and the big bed was comfortable. The stove top doesn't work to well, but we used the grills too. Walking to the beach was a plus for us. Make sure to give the guests both codes. We had to call for the code to unlock the door knob. Other than that inconvenience we really enjoyed our stay. We loved the balcony. Drinking coffee and looking at the ocean was like heaven.
Manager Response:
We apologize for the confusion with entry to the home; the locks and handles have been changed so that only one code is needed to enter the home. Thanks!
Chelsey B. July 2016
The condo was extremely clean and updated! It was a perfect fit for my family of 6! We will definitely be staying in this unit again!
Jennifer D. July 2016
We loved the condo. It was very clean and appears newly remodeled. It was perfect for our family. The pools were very clean and it was a beautiful view of the ocean.
Nathan T. June 2016
During our trip to Texas we wanted to spend some of it at the beach. The Victorian was across from the beach and had two pools and two hot tubs. The property was very clean and had beautiful gardens. The room was renovated and really nice. We will definitely stay here again.
Lindsey P. June 2016
We drove 15 hours from Omaha, Nebraska to stay down in Galveston at this Victorian condo. I did countless hours of research on what I thought was the perfect condo for our family of four. The pictures are exactly what you'll get. The inside is beautifully redone and decorated. A true beachy feel, which is exactly what I wanted. The floors we're beautiful. The sand from our feet blended right in. :) I didn't cook one meal and only prepared cereal and sandwiches but the fridge is the perfect size for drinks and lunch. The bunk beds were great for my boys (6&4). A little hard but they never complained. The bed in the bedroom was so comfortable. Other reviews stated it was hard but I disagree. It reminded me of a memory foam bed. We are used to a king sized bed but the room would not be big enough. The cable tv was fuzzy but the only time we wanted to watch tv was before bed. The internet worked great until after dinner time, I'm guessing that's when other guests were using the wifi and it caused slow connection. Again, no big deal. It is directly across the street from the beach and right on the corner so it's easy to stop traffic with a push of a button on the traffic light. It's a very busy intersection so beware. Walmart is literally right next door (thankfully you can't see if from this room) so that was super convenient. The view is awesome. Ocean to the left, pool to the right. Cannot go wrong. I snuck out each morning before my kids got up and drank my coffee. That was such a great treat for exhausted moms like myself. I really have no complaints other than replacing the vacuum and put a broom in the closet as their is sand everywhere. If you're on the fence about this hotel don't be. The grounds are wonderfully kept and well maintained. I have very high standards so please believe me when I say if I came back again I would choose this exact condo. The location is perfect. Right in the heart of the sea wall. For a more secluded and less crounded beach, drive past Jamaica beach and pull off into a neighborhood where there's "beach access" signs. It's so quiet and less crowded. Beautiful beach homes behind you as you sit on the beach. For dinner go to "The Spot" down by the pleasure pier. Great atmosphere and amazing food. Kid friendly as well. Best fish tacos I ever had. Anyway, I could go on and on. Stay here at 6102, you won't be disappointed, I promise!!
Samuel B. May 2016
Nice condo.
Pro's : location, 2 great pools especially the one for kids, great view of ocean, nice beach across the street, big balcony, ice machine across the way, 2 burner stove, nice size fridge and freezer, microwave, small dishwasher, separate bedroom, good use of space, great central air, nicely decorated.
Con's: cleaning crew did not do a great job floors were dirty, microwave fingerprints all over outside, counters greasy. The bathroom was clean and bedroom clean. But our feet were dirty we kept flip flops on inside. The mattress could be replaced seems soft and sink towards the middle. Same with the couch very worn. The shower leaks water out of the glass doors onto the floor and into the hallway. (its a walk in shower just be aware no bathtub,which we knew and brought one for our daughter) Also make sure you get the correct code for the keys. There is one for the actual keys themselves and one for the doorknob. 2 separate codes.
They did do updates to this unit it looks pretty and we did enjoy or stay. With a good cleaning and a few fixes it can be awesome! We would try it again.
Manager Response:
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and are looking forward to coming back! We really appreciate you reaching out to us with your feedback. Our property manager will work with our housekeeping staff to make sure the home is in great order for our guests going forward and will inspect the home to fix the maintenance issues you bought up. Thank you again for staying with Vacasa.
Barbara B. May 2016
Nice balcony, plenty of bath linens, good tv's and very clean. Terrible bed though, be sure to bring your Alleve! Decent view although taller outdoor furniture would have been ideal to see over the balcony rail. All in all a nice rental fairly priced.
Amanda V. May 2016
Condo was very clean and decorated cute. It could use some fresh paint and and new blinds but the Ocean view was beautiful to wake up to. Cable T.V was pretty fuzzy looking the whole week we stayed and there seemed to be some kind of water leak from the shower. It would have water pooling around the shower and under the door of the bathroom.You can tell its been like this for a while because you can see the water damage on the bathroom doorframe. The propery is very well maintained. Clean pools and Hot tub!
Laure S. April 2016
We enjoyed our stay it was a clean comfortable place. Only drawback was no washer and dryer in the unit. My husband felt the bed was not great but I thought it was ok. Kind liked the bunks. I would stay here again in the future
Manager Response:
We apologize if it was inconvenient to not have a washer and dryer within the unit and hope you took advantage of the shared laundry facilities in the complex.
Edward S. March 2016
Overall good. It was smaller than I thought it was going to be. It was just me and my husband so it was fine, but it would have been too small if we would have taken our kids.
Yolanda A. March 2016
Overall a great time and we will be back
Sarah G. February 2016
We were pleased with this unit. The property seemed to be updated & it seemed other units were also being updated. Our was beautiful, well updated, nice finishes. There was, however hair on the wall in the shower. Everything else appeared clean. Very comfy linens & plenty of room to sleep in a small unit. Our biggest complaint was a "knocking" at all hours. Seemed like a water pipe, but kept us up in the bedroom at night. Needs a few extra small household things like plastic bags & plastic wrap. Walmart is next door, though, for those needs. Everything on the island is easily accessible. Lots of things within walking distance. Overall pleased, would stay here again.
Taylor K. February 2016
Overall great experience. Cable and wifi are iffy but not what We were there for. Will definitely be back.
Rhoda B. December 2015
No towels
Dirty linens
Lock box code was incorrect
Dirty floors

Great location. Ocean view, nicely decorated.
Manager Response:
Thank you for your review. We apologize for the several inconveniences and cleanliness issues you experienced during your stay. We will work with housekeeping on providing clean towels and linens, and the Property Manager will verify the lockbox codes for upcoming guests. Thank you for choosing Vacasa!
Marcus W. November 2015
Condo was as listed but property needs a facelift. A good value but would probably choose something else for my next visit.
Manager Response:
We appreciate your feedback and will take your comments under consideration. We believe this condo is lovely and it has access to some wonderful amenities!
