Enchanting ocean & city view condo w/shared pool, sauna, hot tub and more!

Come experience the best of Texas when you book your relaxing getaway to this oceanview Galveston condo. Boasting shared amenities like a pool, swim-up bar, hot tub, fitness center, and sauna, the stress won't stand a chance!

Just a short walk from the Galveston shores, this seaside space is perched at one of the highest points in the community, offering 270-degree views of both the beaches as well as the city. With dining, shopping, and local attractions all within a short walk, you'll have everything you need at your fingertips.

A short ride up the elevators to the eight floors takes you to this inviting and charming condo. Light flooding in from the floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors illuminates the stylish tile floors and welcoming main living area. Sink into the leather love seat while you surf the cable channels on the flatscreen TV, or pick out a DVD from the provided library to make it a movie night with some popcorn and friends.

Pour a couple of ice-cold local microbrews and step out on the deck to take in the sweeping views. Snap a few panoramic pictures and then connect to the WiFi to send them off to those at home. You can head down to the sixth floor and claim one of the shared gas grills to put a quick sear on some fresh produce to create a warm, grilled salad.

Put out a few small bites on the stone breakfast bar while you start work on the main dish in the open kitchen. Featuring stainless steel appliances, a microwave, and upgraded accents, you'll be able to easily put together a gourmet meal for everyone. With seating at the breakfast bar and the chic glass dining room table, there will be room for all to spread out and enjoy the meal.

When it's time to retire, this three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom condo will easily let up to eight people (six adults) stay in style. In the master bedroom, you'll be greeted by a king-size bed, and private en suite bathroom with a soaking tub and separate shower. The second room has a double bed with a twin trundle. The third room has a queen-size bed (also with a twin trundle) and plenty of storage for all of your belongings.

Pack the cooler with drinks and snacks, then head down to the beach to enjoy your slice of sun-soaked paradise. Get out on the waves with a stand-up paddleboard, or maybe something with a little more kick like a parasailing adventure. Afterwards, take everyone out to grab a slice of pizza at Russo's New York Pizzeria just steps from your condo.

Get a quick workout in at the on-site fitness center, then do a few laps in the shared pool. Grab a drink at the swim-up bar then revel in a soaking session in the bubbling hot tub. Leave your stress behind as you unwind in the shared sauna then dry off and challenge a friend to a game of foosball or billiards on the community tables.

Whether you're kicking back on the beach, exploring the local attractions, or simply taking in the unobstructed views, this Texas condo surrounds you with chances for relaxation and hassle-free fun!

Had a wonderful time in Galveston. The condo was great and well equipped. The pizza place and the snow cone places out front are GREAT. The building was easy to navigate and staff was wonderful.

The condo was very well stocked. There were more than enough towels and also included beach towels. Great price for a three bedroom 2 1/2 bath condo. The balcony had a beach and bay view which was nice.

East side paradise
Kathy W. Mar 2019
Our apartment was a 3-bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, full kitchen. We had an eastern and northern view out of our living room/kitchen. But the windows were large enough that we also had a view of the gulf. We had visitors during our 2-month stay and the 3 bedrooms worked out perfectly for us. The apartment was clean, comfortable, well-maintained. I couldn't be more pleased with our accommodations and our experience with VACASA and Emerald by the Sea!

Loved the condo. Pool workout room and location. Quality condo
Donna N. Sep 2018
Wonderful view of the ocean from the condo. Had everything we needed and more. Corner balcony amazing view of the beach and down town Galveston area. We definitely want to rent this condo again.

It was my Families 1st time down to this part of the Gulf Coast. The Condo had everything we needed and more, including a play pen for my 9 mo old that we used as make shift crib. Room for everyone( Party of 6) and the pool was amazing, certainly the best feature of this resort. Resort is right across from the beach and you could walk the block and a 1/2 to stick your toes in the water. Plenty of restaurants close by and we were always only minutes from the Historic districts and shops or the Sea Wall dining and entertainment. Parking Garage felt very secure. On the minus sides, we ran out of Garbage bags and laundry detergent but these were minor issues. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

The condo was big enough and comfortable enough for our family of 8. The bed arrangement didn't turn out to be quite as described (Q w/ twin trundle in one bedroom and full bed w/ twin trundle in other bedroom). It looked like a twin bed w/ twin trundle in one bedroom and a full with a pallet in other bedroom, so one of the kids slept on the couch. The condo was very clean and beautifully decorated. We really liked the views from the balcony, and the 6th floor pool and common area was amazingly beautiful. We really enjoyed our stay there. We definitely want to rent this condo again.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable of the area. Our Emerald By The Sea #806 was everything we had hoped it would be.

Good location! Nice place
Susan T. Jul 2018
Exceeded expectations. Clean, comfy beds, lots of towels and a well equipped kitchen...we had a great time!
Jana E. May 2018
We loved the layout, the balcony, how the unit has lots of natural light, and the Emerald has an amazing swimming pool.

The master shower needs attention though- the caulk is black from mold. All of the bathrooms were clean, but several kitchen utensils need a deep cleaning and/or replacement.

We had a great time in Unit 806! At first we had some issues with the coffee pot and not enough towels for the pool but Erica at Vacasa quickly corrected those inconveniences. The property has some great amenities that we enjoyed (pool, hot tub, game room, movie room). The staff was very friendly and the views from the pool were awesome! The unit is very comfortable and spacious. Don't leave out a walking tour of the historic area in Galveston. Some very nice homes and buildings. I highly recommend this place for a family vacation.
Lyndsey G. Apr 2018
The condo was very spacious, offering 3 large bedrooms and an open kitchen/dining/living area/ The master bathroom was amazing - deep garden tub and oversized shower, plus a double vanity. Kitchen was fully stocked - we weren't missing anything!
The balcony is in the best spot of the building, on the corner. You get an amazing panoramic view of the beach and the downtown Galveston area. The wraparound patio allowed us to still enjoy the beach on one of the days it was VERY windy. The amenities are top notch & we will definitely be back to Emerald #806.

Beautiful condo with great views. Great amenities.

For the price I expected more

I stayed with my 4 children 2 of which are young adults 20/19 one 17 and one 9 and another 10 year old relative. I didn't say what I noticed to my children but the older three told me exactly what I felt myself but never said. The told me basically they felt like they were an outsider or not quite welcomed. Not totally unwelcomed but there was a feeling as though we were intruding upon the residents turf/space etc....Subtle stares, glares, uncomfortable conversations. I don't like to be negative and I don't know what could be done(it's their home), but my family is/was very well behaved so I know that's totally not an issue. I just would like to end this by saying the condo was very well kept, very well stocked with any items a family needed to function as though they were at home. The staff was very nice and helpful as possible. A great home away from home vacation spot!

The property was fantastic and I would stay there again on my next trip back to Galveston.
Mandy M. May 2017
We were a group of 4 adults staying the weekend. We really enjoyed our stay here, there was plenty of room for all of us. Nice corner condo so it was quiet with a nice view of the beach across the street from the large balcony and living room windows. You can walk to several places, Walgreens, Restaurants, Bonjour Nails, the beach. You are really close to The Strand and the Seawall attractions. This building is very secure and safe. Everyone we met there were very nice and friendly. We didn't get to enjoy any of the amenities but the pool looked nice. We will try to stay here next time we are in Galveston.

The place is great. Quiet hallways. Clean building. Pool was great. A bike ride from the pleasure pier and anything you might need. Very close to all attractions.
