Our vacation began the moment we arrived at this splendid beachfront Condo. The condo was clean, and tastefully decorated in beach theme. Stunning panoramic Bay view was very relaxing, with a lot of wildlife to see. There was plenty to do on the property with the great lazy river pool and the Beach Club. Lisa the owner also has it set up for additional fun: Paddle Boards, crabbing nets, golf cart and bicycles. We had a Great time at a Unforgettable Retreat!!!!
We had an amazing time with family at this place. We had 2 condos between us and the views were amazing. So nice to sit on the porch in the mornings and evenings and enjoy the view. Beautiful sunset views. We had a blast kayaking and paddle boarding. We caught lots of crabs. We spent a lot of time enjoying the pools. I highly recommend this place!! The condos are VERY nice! Would suggest getting groceries before u get there as there is not a grocery store nearby. Book it and enjoy!
The 5 bedroom/2 condo arrangement is great for a large group. It provides extra flexibility - plenty of room for everyone to gather in one place, but having separate condos allows for private/quiet space, too. And two kitchens is so helpful when preparing meals for a big group. There are activities for all to enjoy as well - simple walks along the beach, kayaking in the bay, fishing, lounging by the pool. Lovely location. Also a bonus that is is managed by its owners. They are very gracious and helpful.
This condo faces the bay, there is a ever-changing view as the tides change. Easy wade fishing right by the condo. Great sunsets. Great for birders as the changing tides bring in different species. I have rented several condos and this one has the most thoughtfully provided kitchen items, bathroom and laundry supplies. There are enough plates and silver for a crowd. The kids enjoyed the,dvds, toys, and games. There are kayaks and crabbing equipment downstairs.
I planned this vacation way back in January. I chose Galveston because it was close to my two daughters and their children who live in Austin. My son and his family could get a direct flight from D.C. To Houston. My husband and I could get there easily from Jackson, MS. After days of searching, I settled on Arthur's Beach and Bay...hoping it was the right choice. Boy, was it ever!! Everyone had a fabulous time! Our ages ranged from 70...that would be me...to 3. We had tentatively planned to go to Moody Gardens and other entertainment venues on Galveston Island...but no one wanted to leave our temporary piece of paradise. We swam, fished, kayaked, played games at the rec center, went to the beach, and rode the golf cart all around the beautiful area. Both condos were lovely and beautifully decorated. The owners were quick to respond to any questions and most gracious. There were games, DVDs, and books galore. The kitchen had anything a guest could possibly want.
Before we left on Wednesday, we were ALL talking about coming back next year.
