The three-bedroom condo was the perfect stay in perfect location for my friend and me. We each had our own bedroom. Nice to have coffee on the balcony and watch the ocean in the morning. The only complaint was the drawers in the kitchen smelled very musty and there was a grill pan that looked to be molded in the bottom drawer. The return vent was dirty but in hindsight, it could’ve been just very old and the front of the return vent needs to be replaced.

Those were my only complaints. Everything else was exceptionally clean! Call the front desk was extremely friendly even though they initially sent us to the wrong room to check in. But it was simply resolved.

We will stay at this location again. Hopefully the kitchen cabinets and drawers will be treated before then. But most definitely I will rebook this condo.

The location and proximity to the beach is what convinced us to book, however we left after the very first night because the it was dirty with roaches.

Let's be clear, this wasn't filthy from top to bottom but it was enough for us to leave and def not worth $200+ a night after you factor in fees, when there's so many options and hotels just as close. Not to mention there's a $30 fee "resort fee" per stay for your parking and wi-fi that you need to pay on-site so factor that into the cost as well.

It felt like a place someone's Aunt loaned you for the weekend and didn't really care if the furniture was broken, pillows were stained, cupboards were caked in grease or there wasn't even soap to wash your hands in the bathroom.

The roaches were the straw that broke the camel's back. I killed about 5 of them and there were big ones that got under the furniture that ran away from me. My Mom was visiting from Canada and my wife and I also had our 12 month old with us, it was both of their first time to the beach so it was a very disappointing experience to say the least.

The unit has potential but if you look at reviews you'll see cleanliness has always been a problem, even though they comment and say they'll fix it. I was naive to think they had turned it around and ruined our weekend.

A real ACTUAL deep clean is sorely needed, wash the cupboards and walls, the vents are disgusting, there's spiderwebs from the bottom of the couch to the floor, replace the old and broken furniture, wash your pillows, fix the blinds so you can actually close them in the bedroom considering the property's spot lights point at them and the bedroom is lit up all night making it difficult to sleep. Have toiletries avail based on the number of guests that are paying to stay. These just seem like common sense property management 101 issues.

We have a great celebration with our friends. Restaurants are close by.

We enjoyed the great view of the beach from the balcony. We were disappointed in cleanliness & maintenance of inside of condo. Extra pillows in master bedroom closet were filthy & unusable. Vent covers were dirty & rusty. Front door was difficult to close & needs painting. Plastic chairs on balcony need cleaning & one chair needs to be replaced - as the arm of chair is broken. Sofa was dirty & not comfortable. Top bed (bunk bed) was not useable for adults - Only the bottom bed was used - because none of us could climb to the top bed. Inside of condo would look better with a beach theme decor.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, Charlene. We apologize for the issues affecting your stay. We have recently conducted a detailed inspection of the home with our maintenance and housekeeping teams to identify all areas in need of attention and we working to address these concerns. We look forward to providing you with a great vacation experience in the future!

This place is a RIP off. Dirty, disgusting and rundown gross. Dead bugs in the toaster, broken front door, extremely dirty and rundown. When we asked for a refund or a different place, they said no refunds and they didn't have any other places. We could take it or leave it. Very rude. We left and luckily found another condo. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY. THEY ARE HORRIBLE.!
Manager response:
We are so glad you stayed with us, Rebecca, and sincerely apologize the home was not as it should have been for you. A deep clean has been scheduled for this home, and maintenance is doing a full inspection to ensure everything is in good shape. We hope to be able to impress you in the future!

Close proximity to the water

The location, view, and condo were great! It had everything we wanted!

There was only one drawback: I had read another review about the elevators not working on Sundays and didn’t quite believe it, but it was true! The staff supposedly tried to get them fixed and running but couldn’t. If not having elevators run on Sundays, when many people check out, and especially for those on the third floor, as we were, is intentional, that is an exceptional and cruel inconvenience.

Otherwise, I’d recommend this particular condo!
Manager response:
Hi, Veronica! We are sorry to read there were issues with the elevator during your stay. The elevators are currently working. Thank you!

This unit needed so many upgrades, it was over stuffed with old furnishings that too up valuable space and left us feeling crowded. There was a smell of mold throughout the entire unit and on the walls, All of the toilets were not sanitized, They also advertise they have a mushroom in the pool which they do but what good is that when it doesn't work?? Isn't that false advertisement? So disappointed.
Manager response:
Hello Erma, We apologize for any issues you experienced during your stay. We encourage guests to reach out to us if there are any issues they encounter during your visit so we can have the opportunity to address them. We understand that you are simply trying to enjoy your vacation and may feel hesitant to bring forth complaints at that time. We hope to have the chance to provide you with a more exemplary stay next time. Thank you for your review. We hope to host you again soon!

Repeatedly attempted to contact the Vacasa property management company starting on the day we check in which proved to be impossible. Sent the following email and to date have received no response.
To Whom It May Concern:

My family is currently staying at The Victorian in Galveston. We have repeatedly attempted to contact someone at Vacasa concerning experiencing the following when checking into our condo rental.

1.) Bedding containing sand
2.) Dirty dishes left in the dishwasher
3.) Refrigerator drawers dirty inside
4.) One bar of soap for 4 guests
5.) Not enough extra towels for 4 guest for 4 days and no wash cloths
6.) One remote control for two tvs
We travel frequently including coming to Galveston several times a year. This is our first stay at the Victorian. The general lack of cleanliness would be disturbing at any time but particularly disturbing in the middle of a pandemic. This experience will cause us to reevaluate using the Victorian in the future.
Manager response:
Hi! Thank you for your review. We’re sorry to hear that the home was in this condition upon your arrival - please know that this is not the regular standard for our properties. We have implemented a Premium Clean program so we can continue to strive to provide our guests with fulfilling experiences; We apologize for any missteps, as it is never our intention to disappoint. We hope to have the opportunity to better impress you in the future.

Christopher B. Jun 2020
Overall the the stay was really great . The condo had excellent ocean view and served its purpose well. The property itself is a little dated but that doesn’t matter with a beautiful view of the ocean at every window.

We only needed a small condo close to the beach. It ain't fancy but it did the trick. It was clean and had everything we needed.
