Great Seawall Location with Shared Pool, Hot Tub, & Gulf Views

Bright and cheery on the inside, and surrounded by manicured grounds, pools, and hot tubs on the outside, this fabulous Galveston vacation rental offers spectacular views of the Gulf from a private balcony, making this a vacation with no shortage of great views and amenities!

Located four miles southwest of Galveston proper, the charming Victorian Resort is a quick stroll to the Seawall and the beach, and near favorite Galveston attractions like Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn Waterpark, and the Lone Star Flight Museum.

This one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo is serene with tropical accents. Curl up on the floral-print sofa for some TV time, or head out to the balcony with a beverage and a good book. There's WiFi throughout the condo for Netflix and email access.

Although you'll want to eat out often (who can resist delicious Gulf/Creole cuisine?) you can prepare simple meals in your kitchenette complete with a small stovetop, a mini-fridge, a dishwasher, and a microwave. Additions like a blender and a coffee maker make breakfast at home a snap! Eat at the dining table set for four, and keep the cook company at the two-top breakfast bar.

The bedroom has a queen bed for ultra comfort and privacy. An additional twin in the hallway between the main living space and the bedroom is the perfect sleeper for a child, and the sofa pulls out into a queen bed, making this a comfortable home for a total of five (four adults max, please).

Take it slow and easy here. There are three pools and two hot tubs to choose from, a fitness/game room, and pretty gardens to wander through. It's a three-mile drive to the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier with carnival-style games and rides, plus fun eats for the family. Ride bikes, scooters, or roller blade the Seawall. Access fishing piers along the shoreline, or wander the beach looking for crabs or the next perfect wave.

Take a beach vacation like no other with a stay in this Texas vacation rental.

There is a $25 'Facility Access Fee' collected by The Victorian Condo HOA from you directly at check-in. Fee includes parking and pool access.

We really enjoyed our stay. The condo was great for us. The facilities are great!
Brittney S. Mar 2022
Everything was good with the apartment only downside was no stove…(they did have a hot plate though).
Bobby G. Oct 2021
If you don't need anything fancy this works.
Linda C. Mar 2021
Good place for a good price.
Amanda D. Oct 2020
It was a place to sleep eat and shower...the decor and furniture need to be updated and there were some cracks in the wall paint that need to be addressed. We were also only left with one roll of toilet paper for 4 days........
Manager response:
Hi, Amanda! We appreciate your feedback and have advised the homeowner of the state of the paint. Thank you!
Brian E. Sep 2020
We just came for a weekend getaway to the island
Shannon A. Jun 2020
It was quiet at night “ and the pools were always clean and fun, enjoyed being next to beach, and having nice view.
Kathryn V. May 2020
It was very beach accessible. The site had 2 pools to choose from and pretty affordable.
Jim G. Jan 2020
Weather was perfect!

My Honeymoon was suppose to be perfect and it was a nightmare ‼️
Manager response:

Nathaniel N. Aug 2019
Unit did not have same number of beds as advertised. “Kitchen” is a dorm room size refrigerator and a hot plate placed on top of non functional stove. Mildewed shower curtain and tub. Ironically while I was on the phone with the less than helpful customer service (tried local manager first but she wouldn’t answer the phone for me OR customer service) my daughter yelled out about roaches on her blanket she had to sleep on because of the lack of beds. DO NOT RENT THIS PROPERTY!!!!!
Manager response:
We apologize for the issues affecting your stay, Nathaniel. We have since worked with housekeeping to address cleanliness concerns and maintenance has been dispatched to address stove repairs. We hope to host you again in the future. Thank you.
Sergio E. Aug 2019
The price was right.
Maria M. Jul 2019
The building is showing some age but it works.
Nicole A. Jul 2019
Not bad for a last minute trip. It is in a good location central to a lot of things and easy to get to from Houston.
Vonda H. Jul 2019
We couldn't afford a luxury resort but this was doable.
Elizabeth K. Jun 2019
The condo we booked we very great the service was good the room was perfect for just a small family my kids loved the view of the ocean the pool was awesome and very fun to play at easy access in and out the walk to the beach was very easy and enjoyable get to we can wait to come back soon
Isilma R. Jun 2019
Nada me gustó
Manager response:
Gracias por compartir tus comentarios, Isilma. Lamentamos saber que tuvo una experiencia negativa, ¡y esperamos tener otra oportunidad para impresionarlo en el futuro!
Benjamin S. Apr 2019
This condo was just what we needed. However, there were a few issues. 1. Elevator near room was out (walking up stairs wasn’t too bad though) 2. Two TVs but neither worked. (Didn’t go to the beach to watch tv so no biggie). Other than that it was a comfortable stay.
Manager response:
We are glad you enjoyed your stay! The building management is working on fixing one of the two elevators available for guests to use and the TV remote batteries were replaced. We are sorry for the inconvenience!
John T. Apr 2019
Great place to stay for a vacation on the beach. This unit needs a little TLC and close by new construction was a bit noisy but all in all it was a wonderful get away for my wife and I.
Amber O. Mar 2019
The condo was clean and accommodating for the weekend stay. Loved that every condo on property had a nice view of the beach and the privacy of the property.
Karen T. Nov 2018
We always enjoy Galveston ! The price was good for the Condo but it’s really out dated, some mold, and terrible patio chairs.
Manager response:
We have purchased new patio chairs and will continue to explore improvement options with the owner. Thanks!
Alex H. Nov 2018
I enjoyed everything in the room as well as how close it was to the beach.
Elizabeth V. Nov 2018
Was pleased with our stay. Felt very comfortable since the property was gated. Would recommend and stay here again
Annah J. Jul 2018
The condo was nice and clean except for the shower curtain had a little mold on it but we didn't mind. The kitchen had all the dishes we needed and Walmart is right next door that was awesome. We could see the ocean from our balcony view was nice. Pools weren't over crowded kids went in for a couple hours. I like that there is a keypad on the door where we enter a code to get in instead of having to remember a card. We had a great stay! Thanks.
Yolanda Rhea T. Jul 2018
Loved this rental. Took a trip with four other family members. This one bedroom rental was accommodating and pictures are true to sight. Great location. Will definitely visit again.
Diane T. Jun 2018
location was great. Desperately needs a thorough cleaning and a coat of paint. Peeling paint and accumulated dust on vests was very unappealing.
Manager response:
We have performed a thorough clean on the unit, including dusting the vents, and apologize it was not as clean as it should have been for this guest.
Debra B. Nov 2017
This was a great place to stay. Very clean. Nice location.
Gretchen G. Aug 2017
This unit is as far from the ocean as you can get. The entrance was poorly lit and the was disappointed in the outside appearance of the unit. I felt the spectacular view of the ocean was very misleading.
Sherri W. Jul 2017
Not the fanciest but served its purpose.
Jessica R. Jun 2017
we had an awesome time...definitely staying again...great amenities..great location..friendly staff...yes it is a little outdated but I'm this was I said ..we'll be back next summer..if not in December for Dickens On The Strand....
Nancy B. May 2017
The property location was great, however, the condo needs refreshing, paint, etc. the bath room was moldy and the carpet was dirty.
Manager response:
We're very sorry the home wasn't in perfect condition when the guest arrived. We pride ourselves in preparing our homes for their arrival. The property manager will have a meeting with the owner to discuss the condo's decor, and address the bathroom and carpet. Thank you.
Taneshia G. May 2017
Its a good place for family and individuals. Very quiet and peaceful. As I stayed in a similar condo like this before so the appearance was not a surprise. My only issue with this condo was the overall location and view of this specific condo. The condo is located all the way in the back and our view was of the parking lot, other condos, and somewhat of the view of the ocean. Overall, the condo was great. I had a great time there. Vacasa was nice enough to leave a gift for us. We really appreciate the gift and will be booking with them again pretty soon.
Rikki J. Mar 2017
We stayed here for 2 nights. 2 adults and 2 kids. Our room was comfortable, clean, and functional. Location is fantastic, you can walk to the beach and the fishing pier. Make sure to eat at Kitty's seaside cafe at least once. We could not have asked for a better stay... we only wish we could've stayed longer!
Tamara R. Sep 2016
This is my second time staying in the condos at the Victorian and both times have been so much better than staying in a hotel. Love the experience and we will be returning!
Andi S. Jul 2016
The Victorian is located right between a Walmart - perfect for beach supplies you might have forgotten - and a Kroger. There's a handful of quick food options just next door and the beach is right across the road (and not too crowded, even over the 4th of July weekend!)

Would highly recommend. We were four adults, and while it was a bit cozy there was more than enough room for all of us. The condo itself is a bit "beach worn" - ie. not updated - but it added to the charm and everything, while a bit old, was in good condition.
David C. Jul 2016
this flat is in the perfect location. we enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning before summer's end
Kyle H. May 2016
It was located directly across from the beach and we had a wonderful view from the balcony. Really enjoyed our stay
Tonya F. Apr 2016
We attended the RGC -Blue Knights conference that was hosted at theVictorian. It was convenient and clean. Gardens were beautiful for pictures. Restaurant was good and convenient.
Nicholas S. Mar 2016
Every thing was fine. Remotes didn't work, but that made it more relaxing anyway. It is a bit cramped, for four is fine, six might be pushing it????
Stephanie B. Feb 2016
Cheaper than staying at the check in price
Erika D. Aug 2015
Crystal Beach, take ferry to Port Bolivar- free and you can find plenty of hermit crabs!
Bishop Palace to feel and understand Galveston's history, family of 4 $37
Ocean Star Museum, great for kids a learning opportunity to teach them about science and all the things oil does for this country and what it makes, family of 4 $25
WIth Walmart being so close it is really convenient if you forget something
Take time to drive "downtown" the antique shops are great and the kids can get something different.
You pay for what you get, there is nothing wrong with this property. It is clean and safe. Depending on your unit the furniture may be a little outdated, but your not in the room much, only to lay your head down for sleep. You can get a " more comfortable" place to stay you will have to pay more elsewhere. We stayed for six days and we enjoyed every minute of it. Lastly the Pier 21 Theater, there is a discount brochure in lobby. The Great Storm is something everyone needs to know about Galveston, a quick 27 minute movie. Another opportunity to teach kids about science, weather, water, and earth's crust gets them thinking.
E G. Jul 2015
Our family loves the beach!! This location is a short walk to the beach, which makes it a great location. Area attractions (Pleasure Pier) are within a 5-10 minute drive away. The beds are comfortable. The space was large enough to accommodate our family of 4. Would like to visit again soon!
Janie T. Jul 2015
I was born and raised in Galveston. I stayed here when I went home for my class reunion. This is on the best side of town ie..safest. Yes, it's a drive to the Strand district and the Pleasure Pier, but it's worth it.
And the room is very nice. (Born On Island)
