We really enjoyed the privacy of this 6 unit condominium.
This was a wonderfully prepped and very welcoming stay and the location couldn’t be better!
Great location and easy access to the beach. Great having the dogs with us.
The condo is very cozy and the location great!
This condo is adorable. Very clean. Great views. Quiet. It's walking distance to restaurants, shopping, beach and bike/scooter rentals. I will definitely stay here again. We had a great girls weekend!
This was our 2nd time to stay at the condos. This was the first time we stayed in Cocco Pop. We love the location as it is steps away from the beach and walking distance to numerous restaurants. The balcony is amazing and has the best view. The couch in this condo was very uncomfortable to sit on and I can't imagine trying to sleep on it. The pool area wasn't as well kept as our previous stay. Some weeding needs to be done but the pool is still great. We will definetley be back to stay again at one of these great condos.
Hi, Lacy! We're glad you stayed with us and have addressed the landscaping maintenance. The furnishings will be discussed with the homeowner. Thank you!
The location was perfect, home was clean and had everything we needed. Walking distance to food, entertainment, the beach is right across the street and the pool is just outside the back door. All other travelers were very friendly and quiet. Highly reccomend!
This was our second visit to this property. We really like that it's small and quiet. The view is amazing from the top and bottom floors. The kitchen is really nice and well equipped. The master bath shower is spacious. We love that there is a bathroom on both floors.
We'll definitely be back for our next trip to Galveston.
This condo is directly across the street from the beach which was so convenient and amazing! The home was very clean and had almost everything we needed. I did wish it had a table and comfortable chairs in the living room, but otherwise, this home was perfect for us and we would stay again!
I would like this as my home in Galveston please. 🤣🤣 This is our second stay at Shimmy Shimmy Cocco Pop and we just love it. It’s got everything!!! From the private, gated parking to the pool shared only with 5 other condos to the awesome across-the-street-from-the-beach location, we don’t think there is a better place to stay in Galveston. And the condo is so cute and perfect for a family of 3 or 4. Oh and dogs are allowed!
This was a great vacation condo. We felt right at home as soon as we walked in. Access to a private pool right outside & the beach right across the street. Restaurants, bars & Pleasure Pier all within walking distance. We loved it!
These condos are perfect! You can't beat the view and having access to a pool is awesome as well. We had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend at the beach. The upstairs balcony is an ideal place to start the day with a cup of coffee. The bed is incredibly comfortable and the AC works great! We will definitely book here again!
First, I am native Houstonian and travel down to Galveston at least 6 times a year. We had always wanted to stay at the Condo di Cocco but they were always booked solid. Finally, an opportunity opened up that fit our schedule and we took it. Loved that we were able to secure the first unit (Shimmy Shimmy Cocco Pop) because our preference had always been #1 or #6 just for beachfront view preferences. The layout of the condos is A+. They are built solid, no half stepping on construction, they were built for hurricanes that is made obvious. Full kitchen, nice living area downstairs to host a few friends. A pool side patio on the bottom level is more that sufficient. Upstairs to the bedroom area, bathroom is spacious a well as the closet. The king size bed was beyond comfortable and we had a great time to boot. The ONLY reason I can't give the property a 5 Star is attention to detail. The entire property needs a real good deep clean. The pool furniture needs way more than a lil TLC. It needs to be discarded and new furniture in its place. Even in the condo itself there are stains on furniture that shouldn't be and that needs to be addressed by ownership. The landscape upkeep needs to addressed as well. Once the owners spend a bit on those areas they can expect a 5 out of 5 every time because the condos, location, convenience of check-in, parking allocation, security, sells itself. Will stay at this property many more times!!
Very clean, good Wi-Fi, 2 TVs both worked good, nice kitchen setup, and two bathrooms. Very enjoyable! And right by the beach!
Close proximity to the beach. Secure parking area.
Vacasa gets a 10 star rating. They were very attentive & helpful when we called/texted them.
The condo was clean & a good location. We didn’t spend much time there, but when we were there, we were upstairs, as the downstairs is not very inviting. I would probably rent another condo here, just not number 1.
Nice sight seen, excellent location, clean, swimming pool, excellent instructions
We have stayed here two times and love the convenience to the beach. Just walk across the street. We also love being able to bring our little yorkie. Another plus is that there are only 6 units and not a lot of people.
This property is very lovely. Everything is new,modern, and updated.
I have stayed at these condos 3 years ago. I love the location, the fact that there are only 6 units so it is quieter than anywhere on the island. The condition wasn’t quite as nice as they were 3 years ago. For the most part it was good. The lockbox had been broken so there wasn’t a key but the contact number was able to get us in. Also the TVs were not getting channels. Maintenance was nice enough to drive down 8 PM our first night. Wallpaper was falling off the wall in the kitchen. There was only one beach chair to use for beach. The pool deck was in terrible condition. I didn’t take my mother out there. No one had mowed or pulled weeds or trimmed plants in awhile. Everything needed a good cleaning. It looked like it hadn’t been touched since the end of summer last year. I am not normally that picky but for a small boutique condo on the beach and as small of property it is there isn’t any reason they couldn’t have had someone clean up the pool area. Especially for this time of year!!! I loved our stay 3 years ago! It still was ok this time but I will not rave about it like I have in the past. Sorry.
Hi, Barbara! Thank you sharing your review us. This home now uses digital deadbolts rather than lockboxes, the cable is currently working, and the "wallpaper" is actually decorative sheets tacked into the wall that do not adhere the same as true wallpaper. The lawn will be better maintained moving forward. We hope to see you again!
The dryers did not work and the door to the upstairs balcony rattled all night from the wind. I had to put a towel in it to keep the wind from howling through it. Otherwise, it was a cute 2-story condo with a pool, gated parking, and all the amenities needed right across the street from the beach. It is pet- friendly and in a perfect location.
This condo complex has it all... location, location, location! There is excellent security and secured parking.
Location and secure parking. Not much else. Entire property a disappointment. Unclean and unhealthy. We have the photos to prove our claim. Property manager had excuses but nothing more. Booked for four nights at a rate of $ 338..00 per night with zero cancellation policy. Otherwise we would have left the property after the first night. I do not think management or owners could care less as long as they are receiving bookings. They too see the poor conditions
Jerry, thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We are truly sorry to hear about the unfortunate issues affecting your stay. Please know this is not the standard grade of presentation that we provide, and that we take this feedback seriously. We are working with our local staff to address the issues in this home and appreciate you bringing this to our attention, as this helps us to improve the quality of experiences we provide for our future guests. We hope you will allow us the opportunity to provide you with a truly exceptional vacation experience in the future.
I absolutely LOVED this place. I have been wanted to stay at one of these condos for over a year and I knew they were popular because I hardly ever see them available. However, I was finally able to get one. I stayed in #1 Shimmy Shimmy Cocco Pop and I LOVED it. Super clean quiet neighbors, excellent location, private pool, up and downstairs porches, gated, assigned parking, laundry. I have not 1 bad thing to say about this place or my experience with Vacasa. Will definitely stay here again! The only thing I regret is that I did not book it for longer I did not want to leave!
It was clean, comfortable and had a great location.
Condo was well appointed with everything you would need. Location is amazing right on the sea wall with views out all French doors and windows to the courtyard with beautiful pool and lush greenery and the sea directly beyond that . The second floor balcony has a table with chairs to look out over and see the ocean . Beautiful, secluded and secure yet only a short walk away from pleasure pier and a multitude of restaurants and activities! Would highly recommend and definitely hope to return! We loved it!
Amazing Condo with entry and exit procedures all automated. Well located and easy approach to Beach, Restaurants, Pleasure pier etc. View from the Bedroom patio is just breathtaking we spent a lot of time in that Patio when we were not in the beach. Pool was good too, but there were some leaves and dust due to the Seawall Blv next to the Condo. I will definitely come back to this place in future.
1. More Floor mats, especially near the Patio in Bedroom, so that the dust can stay out
2. Possibility of sound proofing Bedroom patio doors/windows to avoid the traffic noise.
Overall, AWESOME place to stay.
Excelente instalaciones y ubicacion!!
Loved the layout of the condo, especially with the bedroom upstairs near the balcony which overlooks the seawall and beach. Although we didn't take advantage of the downstairs space due to it only being my wife and I, it's roomy enough to accommodate a family.
The location of the condo couldn't be better - easy walk to just about everything you'd want access to - beach, shops, bike rentals, restaurants, etc.
We'll definitely be coming back!
Second stay at Condo di Cocco & will return again. Jake the property manager is the best.
My only complaint is that the gate code for the on-foot gate does not work and you have to use the main gate to get back in. Other than that it honeymoon was great thanks to the great place
I always enjoy staying at the Condo Di Cocoo but this time the neighbors were dirty, we couldn’t get in the pool or hot tub because the kids were in it all day and 1 was in diapers! In the pool, by the end of the day the diaper was at the bottom of the pool! They were all just messy and dirty, thank goodness for the balcony sitting area😁 I will be back just hopefully with more respectful neighbors!
Susan, we are so sorry the neighbors were not considerate of others. We apologize the porch furniture wasn't clean. We do look forward to hosting you during your next stay. Thank you!
It is a cute condo, very clean, not crowded, gated parking made us feel secure
We loved the location. So close to the beach, we walked everywhere we wanted to go. We felt very safe and loved the balcony view while drinking coffee in the morning. Would definitely stay again.
This is a great complex - just six units, and it’s easy to find quiet time for 2 outside at the pool or hot tub. Our favorite is unit 4 but both end units offer a lot of privacy. Lots of parking and it’s gated for security!
We loved it. Second year in a row here and will probably repeat next year. Close to the beach. Me and the kids load up the wagon for the day and walk down the block to the beach... and they always enjoy the pool.
The condo is super cute. Everything you need for a “stay in” vacation. Kitchen was fully stocked and cooking in made our trip easy. The bed is comfortable and the shower is tremendous. The location can’t be beat. The pool was an added luxury - right outside your door and not crowded. We took our bikes and rode Seawall. We will be back!
We stayed in the Cocco Mo a few years ago and had a great time. This time, however, the Shimmy Shimmy Cocco Pop left much to be desired. For just over a thousand dollars, not being able to check in until 4pm on Friday and having to check out by 10am on Sunday made for a very expensive weekend. And much to our surprise, the unit was rather dirty. You’d think that in the midst of a pandemic, people would be taking extra precautions to at least give the APPEARANCE of cleanliness. Not the case here. There were visible stains on the bedding, dirt on the floors, gunk on the kitchen counters. I love the location of these condos and the fact that it’s dog friendly and has a pool, but I’m not sure I’d stay again after this experience. Very disappointed.
Hi Stacy, thank you for sharing your feedback. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement regarding some specific cleanliness issues with the home. We will pass your feedback to our housekeeping team for future consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
This is a nice community - only six condos - to visit and bring our dog with us. The beach space was nice across the street, it is a short walk to the boardwalk and several restaurants/bars.
Awesome place for hanging out at the beach. There are even two beach chairs and a shower for washing off the sand before you get inside.
Great condo right on the beach in the heart of he action!
I love how small and quaint the complex is and the location
The master bedroom and large bathroom and shower were impeccable! Views of the beach from the bed were fabulous to wake up to. The pool, enclosed yard for out pet and landscaping were unexpectedly fab. The hot tub did not have heat however, :(. The unit, parking and location were awesome. We will come again!
Thank you for staying with us! We are so glad you enjoyed your time here. We do not advertise a hot tub for this property, though there is a shared pool. We hope to see you again!
Great area and beautiful location.
We would definitely go back again! So nice to have a walkout to the pool and then the upstairs balcony to get a great view of the ocean! Unit was beautiful and bed was so comfy! Very convenient to walk on beach and lots of things to do close by! Also very safe with fenced in parking with electronic gate.
Neat, clean, cute..close to everything , very pet friendly, lovely pool, had a great time here, small, 6 units in all, it was perfect
Clean and great location. Pool and garden is very nice. Only complaint is the futon is uncomfortable. The king bed upstairs was great.
The condos are cute, the location is great, sort of like a private mini resort that has 6 units.
Loved it!!!! Totally awesome!! Clean,private parking beach view, cool balcony. Just overall kick ass place..
Great place to stay, love the theme condos! Shimmy Shimmy Cocoa Pop is my favorite. Clean, comfortable, and walking distance to every where you want to go. The only problem was the Jacuzzi would not get hot, but we were in the middle of a tropical storm Imelda. We felt very safe. Great place !! We'll be back for sure!
This was a last minute getaway and worked out great. Only 6 apartments so it’s quiet. Nice pool. Walk straight across to the beach.
When I come back to Galveston, I ONLY WANT TO STAY HERE! I have wanted to stay in those adorable ocean view condos for years and it never previously worked out. I’m so happy it finally did. We parked the car when we arrived and didn’t get back into it until we left because we walked everywhere. It’s a great location. The condo itself was perfect in every way and felt very quiet and private. We even had unexpected private time in the pool each day. My husband and I wish we owned the place.
Gated parking, on the seawall, good location
Stayed here many times and have enjoyed every single one!
Excellent place to stay at for vacation
It is small and not crowded. small groups can rent some or all of the 6 units and have the place to themselves.
great location, clean, safe - Jake was excellent!
We like that it is a small complex with only 6 units and gated parking lot.
The condo itself was very comfortable. The location was fantastic. The pool was great. The beach is right across the street and there is a little tiki bar at the hotel next door. We will be back!
It was a great time! The place was very nice, we really loved all the kitchen essentials. Very comfortable king size mattress upstairs and we loved the upstairs balcony. We really appreciated being able to bring our dog and that you had bags and a water bowl on site, as well as the little grassy area for him to do his business. My only complaints would be that the wifi was no good. We had to use data the majority of the time we were there. We brought our own firestick to use in the evenings and the signal was not strong enough to stream anything. The garage code never did work, we got lucky that, someone else let us in with their clicker. The hot tub was also to hot to actually enjoy, we couldn't find a way to adjust the temp anywhere or instructions on site. We would stay here again, loved the privacy of only having to share with a few others. Couldn't hear anyone through the walls either. Thank you.
Thank you for your feedback, Kelsey! We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. We provide a code to access the complex gate, however a garage remote is provided in the home for garage access. The hot tub is a shared amenity managed and maintained through the condominium association. We look forward to hosting you again!
Next time we will rent several of these for a group of fun.
Me and my husband stayed on Memorial day. It was perfectly located, and pictures are just as shown. Best part is there is only 6 condos... not once was anyone using the pool or hot tub at the same time as us. Very nice and relaxing.. only suggestion is a cpl better quality pans for guests to use, and take down the odd tacked up wallpaper in the kitchen.. 5 stars all the way
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Robyn! We're so glad this condo suited you well for your vacation needs. We'll certainly pass your suggestions onto our management team for consideration. We look forward to hosting you for your next getaway!
Clean; good location; well stocked kitchen.
Proximity to beach and island entertainment; layout of condo; balcony view of ocean and sunrise.
My son and I spend spring break here. It was such a cute little condo. Plenty of room for us. The kitchen is fully equipped w everything and anything you could need plus some. Napkins, towels, dish soap etc. Blender for pina coladas!
The bathroom had towels, beach towels, toiletries & hair dryer. We loved that we could park right behind the gated entrance. Also we had an upstairs balcony view of the beach. Plus step off your back porch right to the pool and hot tub. Loved this! There is a shower outside for after the beach. It was great to walk across the street to the beach and pleasure beach so easily.
Ive stayed on the island since I was a little kid and this was by far the best place I've stayed. We will definitely be staying again!
I really liked that we had enough supplies for two people for a week! The bed was very comfy and the hot tub was a nice treat during a very foggy week. I wasn’t fond of the sofa. It is not comfortable at all and should be cleaned or replaced. You will get used to Seawall Blvd traffic noise. By about 11 pm, it really drops off. Finally, do not be put off by the buildng next door. We couldn’t decide if it was being torn down or being remodeled. On the other side is a Doubletree with a fun tiki bar😃.
The "Cocco Pop" is very nice, great location, wonderful view.
Second stay, same unit. Will visit again.
Loved the view from the upstairs bedroom. Loved the downstairs patio that leads directly to the pool and hot tub. There was nothing not to love about the place. We will definitely stay here again.
We had an incredible time on the island. The Condo was great!! The morning view of the gulf is perfect.
Place was as good as advertised, no surprises. Well furnished unit, comfortable bed . Beach access stairs are right across the street, nice restaurants close by.Only about 6 units in the complex so very quiet other than Seawall Blvd traffic.
It was a good location, very clean. It’s unique in that there are only six units yet an extremely nice pool and spa. We enjoyed out stay and would stay again.
Great location, walk to beach. Fenced yard perfect for dogs. Very comfortable accommodations. Would stay here again!
Clean, close to a lot of things. Also you can stay right there and have a good time. Will be back next year. I do think frequent visitors should get some kind of discount. :)
Great location, clean ,comfortable and nicely equipped. Would highly recommend it staying in Galveaton.
Loved it, secure, very comfortable and all you need to bring is bathing suits!!
It had all that was needed. Close to everything, comfortable bed, nice shower, nice pool, easy access to downtown. This sofa was not really comfortable. It is a great place for two.
Amazing condo! Very comfortable for a small family or couple. Everything was clean and in place. Location was perfect, directly across the street from the beach. Nice breeze from the balcony upstairs. The pool area was great, calm and quiet at all times. Very relaxing trip!
The Condo was very clean ,nice and quiet.
The beach is across the street.
We love the outside shower right outside the front door where you can clean up your feet or your chairs.
Acces to the laundry room was very helpful.
Pet friendly was the best!!!!!
we enjoyed our visit!
We loved the hospitality and upgrades to this place (beach chairs and towels included). Super close to the beach and a great view. Only a couple of little things to note - hot tub is the same temperature as the pool and there were a couple of light bulbs out in our unit.
We enjoyed the stay. Very comfortable bed and beautiful view from upstairs and downstairs balcony. However, the noise from the road directly in front of the condo wasnt nice but that's to be expected. Another complaint we had was the futon couch in the living room.. it was very uncomfortable for the kids. They didnt get much sleep and we couldnt sit on it comfortably either. It tips forward when you sit on it. My husband and I found ourselves upstairs when at the condo just so we could sit comfortably.
This place was very nice. It was very clean and it was a perfect location as far as beach/boardwalk, and restaurants, shopping, and the Strand (a short drive) . The beach is right across the street, so there is nice beach view out of the patio off the master bedroom upstairs. There is a nice, albeit small, pool and hot tub if you need that. There is also an outside shower right outside the front door around the side where you can rinse off your feet or clean up beach chairs. The kitchen is great and has pretty much everything you need. The master bedroom and bathroom were large and very nice...the bed was comfortable. Plenty of closet space and drawer space. There are beach chairs and if you want to rent chairs and an umbrella, they have those right across the street on the beach (we brought our own). If I had to make a criticism, and I am just being honest, I would say that the wallpaper in the kitchen was being held up with thumbtacks (which seemed out of place given a beautiful kitchen) and the couch, although beautiful, was not comfortable at all. But those are small criticisms. We enjoyed our visit and would stay here again.
This is a cool little find. As advertised, no surprises. Would reco...
Love these condos!! Stayed in in Shimmy Shimmy Cocco Pop. Very cold a/c, nice furnishings, nice end unit, TV's unpstairs and down stairs. Awesome place to stay!!
My husband and I came here for a romantic getaway and loved how modern the condo was. The views off of the upstairs balcony were stunning. There are beautiful dual opening french doors on both floors. Everything was perfect and really private as there are only 6 condos. We will definitely come back!
This place was perfect for our little family. Ocean directly across the street cute bar(longboard bar) right next to us and an amazing restaurant 2 minute walk (millers) excellent food for all three meals and not overpriced. Ferris wheel 🎡 1/4 mile walk!! Lots of other restaurants within 2 miles! The only complaint I have is the pool was not heated when we where there. 😑 but there is tons of parking in the gated area they allow pets which is always a plus. We will definitely come back with more people next time. Perfect place if you are wanting to vacation with other families bc everyone will have their separate living quarters!!
Great location, right across the street from the beach, close to good dining, and downtown area of Galveston. Clean apartment and comfy bed. I'd stay here again
I will only stay with this venue on future trips to Galveston
We've stayed here twice now and LOVE it! Great location, pool and hot tub. Walking distance to restaurants and bars. We will definitely be back!
We had a great time Thanksgiving. We come to Galveston often - we'll definitely try to stay here shsin
We really enjoyed our stay here, very relaxing, great accommodation, close to all the amenities! Would definitely stay here again if we were ever in the Galveston area again!
Great location with the most beautiful view. Gated property with free use of washers & dryers. Beautifully landscaped pool area with hot tub. Lots of privacy. Dominic the manager was top notch & made himself available if we would need to contact during our stay. This is the place to stay on the island. Will definitely stay here again.
Everything was clean. Have stayed here twice. Pool and hot tub clean. Hard to say anything negative. Property manager very nice and friendly.
The location was fantastic! It was easy to drive to and the parking was extremely convienent. The home was pretty with overall nice furnishings. The bed in the bedroom was extremely comfortable but the futon was hard and very uncomfortable. We had 3 adults and a 1 year old, so one adult slept on the futon, it seemed very unfair that the futon was terrible to sleep on.
The pool was great! Loved the access from the home to the pool and the number of people staying in the condos compared to the pool size seems appropriate.
The home was not great for having a 1 year old. There was no door on the bedroom so when she slept everyone had to be extremely quiet.
The manager was friendly and reached out to us to make sure we had everything. He did a great job of making us feel welcome and they we could talk him if anything was needed.
Late check or was available and really great!
Overall beautiful home, and I would definately go there as a couple, but it just wasn't a great fit for more people.
This place is adorable, down to the name! We loved that it was an end unit and everything is so close by. The staff was very accommodating, as far as communicating with us. There was nothing we needed, but the check-in process was easy. Will definitely be back.
I highly recommend - very nice property & great locale.
Took our two kids on vacation here. The beach is right across the street, and I had a hard time getting them out of the pool to go check out the beach. There's a stocked kitchen, so we made breakfast and lunch and enjoyed all the close restaurants for dinner. Completely blown away at how freaking cute this place is!!! We don't want to stay anywhere else in Galveston! We will be booking yearly to ensure we get our condo!! Thank you for a fantastic vacation!
My mom and two kids, small dog and I really enjoyed this condo. Right by the beach and an easy walk to Pleasure Pier and restaurants. Clean and elegant.
Loved location and pet friendly environment. Great amenities.
This was the second time that I have stayed at one of these properties. It is a nice property, great pool access, on the beach and close to everything.
The condo was amaziny clean and modern with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, walk in shower. The art and furnishings were a nice touch. Townhome feel with large master bedroom and bath upstairs. Balcony upstairs has an amazing view of the ocean. The pool and hot tub are literally steps from back door and there is a small grassy area for dogs. The small six condo community is gated so it feels safe. When we stayed here we did not drive anywhere because everything is within walking distance of this condo. The beach is within a block directly across the street . There are several restaurants and souvenir shops nearby, including one that has bicycle rentals. Pleasure pier is about a 15 minute walk down Seawall Boulevard. Great location central to everything!
Overall a clean, nice place. But pool was dirty and did not get cleaned during our four day stay. Even after contacting local Vacasa rep.
We apologize for the state of the pool during this reservation. We had to use substitute cleaners due to an emergency situation, and due to the holidays we were not able to get everything taken care of that normally would have been done. Again, we are sorry the pool was not in better condition for this reservation.
We had a fabulous experience, the location was awesome, the contact staff terrific and the whole experience from making the reservation to check out was wonderful. The property was clean, the bed was comfortable, and it was really nice to have the gated secure parking right there; it was so convenient! We have never used VACASA or any other shared property rental, but we certainly will make future reservations with VACASA again; no stress, no worries, just relaxation and fun. We highly recommend VACASA and the whole experience!
We traveled to Galveston with our young girls for a long weekend getaway. The Shimmy shimmy cocco pop was the perfect condo for our family! Very clean and comfortable. The pool area was like our own little oasis. Enjoyed easy access to the beach and other local attractions. Only small issue we had was the noise of the traffic on Seawall Blvd. other than that we loved the condo!
This is our second stay at Condo di Cocco and it won't be our last! This was a last minute get away for me and my husband, and it was just what we needed to kick back and relax. The condo is very comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. Love the location being so close to the beach especially since the beaches have been widened. I only wish we had been able to stay longer!
My family of 4 stayed here Mother's Day weekend. I have 2 kids- 2 and 4 yrs old.
- Across the street from the beach- perfect for camping out at the beach all day- easy to make multiple trips, refill drinks, take dog to/from beach
- Outdoor shower to rinse off bodies, toys, shoes
- Very clean condo- plenty of towels and pillows
- Dominic, the property manager, quickly responds and resolves issues
- Small complex with only 6 units that share the pool and hot tub (we enjoyed socializing with all our neighbors for the weekend)
- Nicely decorated
- Two grills out by pool area
- Bedroom had room for our pack and play
- Plenty of dishes and dishwasher laundry detergent tabs
- Small area to take dog to bathroom
- Sago palms, which are extremely toxic to dogs, are all over the pool area. Dogs must walk past them to access pet area.
- The couch is extremely uncomfortable and seemed unusable as a bed.
- No extra blankets (I'm sure if we called we could have gotten one but I didnt need it, just wanted it). There were extra sheets for the couch.
- The only large frying pan was bowed and cooked unevenly.
- The trash bags provided are flimsy and few in number.
The pros most definitely outweigh the cons, and we had a great time! We plan on staying here again in the near future!!
The property is super private, conveniently located across the street from the beach & walking distance to almost everything.
Great location, comfortable and clean! Loved the pool right outside door and that only shared between 5 other condos.
We travel to Galveston from Colorado (looking to get away from the snow). The condo's location was perfect! The beach was right across the street! The condo has beach toys and chairs. We hit up Kroger and got a few groceries and laundry detergent. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to make breakfast and snacks. The view is beautiful! Definitely would recommend this place!
Great location across the street from the water, easy to walk to local attractions including the Pleasure Pier and nearby restaurants and shops. Only downside is the street (Seawall Blvd.) can be a bit noisy and can be difficult to cross.
The unit was in a great location!
We had a great stay at this condo. It was clean and very well-maintained. It was the perfect size for the 2 of us and it was great to be able to bring our dog. The location was perfect. Right across the street from the beach and within walking distance to Pleasure Pier and a ton of great restaurants. We will definitely be visiting this condo again!
We absolutely loved staying here and we will be back. This is a six-condo unit with a gate for private parking and security. It would be so fun to get six families to stay there together. The pool isn't huge, but perfect for the size of the property. Next to the pool is a hot tub and area for the dogs. Our unit, Shimmy Shimmy Cocoa Pop, was adorable! The art is cute, the kitchen is up-to-date and the upstairs bathroom and shower are AWESOME!!! I've already recommended this condo to others. If you stay, you won't regret it! And bring the dog!!!!!
It was a private little oasis and we will definitely stay again. Loved that it was dog friendly. .
We really enjoyed our stay! The condo's kitchen is well stocked, the bed upstairs was really comfortable. One of my favorite things was drinking my coffee from the upstairs balcony every morning and watching the waves. The location was on the seawall and convenient, but far enough from the pier area to be quiet in the evening. The property is beautiful! We wished we could have stayed longer! Hopefully we will be back again soon!
Excellent location and facility. Recommend that BAR stools be purchased since the counter stool present make it uncomfortable to use the bar to eat/computer type/etc.
It's our second staying, love the view and hot tub, will come back.
We have stayed here a few times at different times of the year. It is a great location. Love the private pool and hot tub. Will definitely stay again.
Pleasantly surprised as we scrambled 2 days before to find a place. Great option especially as a pet friendly place. Very clean and feels new. Bathroom(s) /shower and full kitchen were like living at home. Bedroom upstairs and futon in living area. Great for small family or 2-4 guests sharing beds(the futon is what you would expect, but works fine). Across the street from beach and 5-15 min walks to plenty of restaurants, bars and pleasure pier, including decent option for some drinks next door. Overall was very happy with booking. Gated secure parking right at back door and pool area (too cold on our trip) is nice option but may be crowded if all condos have people using.
Great place to stay will visit again
We highly recommend this property! My son lives on the island so we visit 2 or 3 times a year, this stay was one of our best. We have previously stayed at some of the more expensive hotels (Hotel Galvez) but for the price, location and convenience you can't beat this property. Right across from the beach, private pool, great view of sunrise from deck, short walk to pier and multiple restaurants, secured parking right outside your door, very clean and plenty of room. Some road noise from seawall but not bad at all. This will be our first choice for all future Galveston trips.
Really enjoyed our stay at Condo di Cocco. Will stay here again
We only had a short 3 day stay at " Shimmy Shimmy Cocco Pop", but would love to be able to return to this unit! it was centrally located near entertainment, restaurants and shopping and we found more than enough to do within walking distance. The unit itself is beautiful and is very nicely finished and decorated. It has easy ground floor access to the pool and hot tub area and the outside space is a tropical oasis............nicely landscaped and maintained!! If you are looking for somewhere to call home while you investigate Galveston Island..........look no further!!
The property is beautiful. The ocean is right across the street. This is our first time staying and we will stay again.
Nicely furnished, super clean, super convenient , super safe...will rent again.
We thoroughly enjoyed or stay at Condo di Cocco in Galveston. It was exactly as described and pictured. I recommend this unit, Shimmy Shimmy Cocco Pop. Cute names on all the condos too. The pool was clean and there were even a couple of floaties. Futon couch not the most comfortable but certainly good enough. Would definitely stay here again.
My husband and I decided to take a last minute weekend trip to Galveston from Louisiana. So glad we found this condo! Everything was perfect for a romantic trip with balcony and patio. Gated with pool...just very nice inside and out! Only drawback for us was sheets and towels were not soft but other than that we really enjoyed ourselves. Thinking about renting all 6 in January to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary with 5 other couples.
My family and I really enjoyed our time here. We didn't have any problems. The facilities were clean. I really appreciate the free washer/dryer. Staying here allowed us to have a nice relaxing vacation. All of the other guests on the property were respectful and friendly.
My family stayed in the this condo for a week during July and had great time. Easy access to the beaches, restaurants and various Galveston attractions.
Condo di Cocco is centrally located on the Gulf side within walking distance to great restaurants and major attractions! After spending our days out and about, coming back to the condo felt like coming home. Any questions we had were answered quickly. We hope to return to Galveston and highly recommend the area.
Loved everything and will defenitely be coming back.
We enjoyed our 7 days and 6 nights at the Galveston VaCasa. We only needed extra supplies once and they were brought to us within a couple of hours. The view of the beach from the upstairs bedroom balcony was great. And we loved the location. It was not far to go to any Galveston activities, beaches and restaurants. We went to Katie's for fresh seafood and cooked on the poolside grill and ate at the poolside table.
Great location and beautiful property. Cleaning staff missed a few things but overall a good experience for the whole family.
Close to just about everything on the island. Hot tub and pool a huge plus.
The condo was very clean. It has an odd odor upon entering but most beach properties have that musty smell.
The kitchen needs dish towels to use less paper. There were zero spices not even salt and pepper as mentioned in the guest book information. Maybe a salt and shaker set would be cost effective and nice. Bring laundry soap if you need to wash clothes. Washer/dryer worked just fine.
The condo has great furniture. The bed and pillows were fantastic. I also loved the rugged look of the downstairs rugs but they were very comfortable to walk on with bare feet.
The hot tub was so relaxing. Sleeping in the bedroom with the blinds open waking up to the sight and sound of the waves was exactly what I needed!!
This condo was simply perfect. All new appliances, furnishings, perfectly decorated and perfect view of the ocean. Kitchen was beautiful and new. The master bedroom has the most comfortable king size bed and sheets. The shower is nice. There are great TVs on both bedroom and living room areas, which is great for relaxing in the evenings. There are only 5 or 6 condos in the complex, so it is quiet. The gates are always locked which made us feel safe.
I love that the condo is pet friendly.
Just one FYI: the grill is an iron charcoal grill near the jacuzzi area, if you plan on grilling out be prepared.
We went just for the weekend, but we didn't want to leave. We felt right at home in this beautiful condo, we will come back for sure in the future.
Thank you for an amazing weekend.
We took the kids for a last minute trip to Galveston, and we were pleasantly surprised by the accommodations that awaited us. The pictures do not do this property justice, the view from the second story balcony overlooking the gulf is well worth the money to book this retreat.
The pool was just outside the patio doors, which was a huge advantage for our two girls aged 8 and 9. My wife and I could sit on the patio or balcony and enjoy a glass of wine without worrying about our kids who were having a blast unknowing being supervised by us.
The owner obviously put a ton of time in creating a small paradise, from the comfy bed to the lush landscape around the coutyard. The property location can't be beat, the beach is just across the street, as well as a short walk to pleasure pier.
Overall we would highly recommend choosing this property for stay in Galveston, we will be back again really soon :)
Thank you for taking the time to share some of the highlights of your experience in this amazing home and its location! We are delighted by the fact that you were able to enjoy so many of the features and amenities that the home and location had to offer and look forward to your return stay.
