I want a condo for my family of 5 that faces the beach and ocean. Which condos are truly oceanfront?
We stayed on the outside close to the office behind the ones that faced the front. We could see the beach/water just fine. We stayed on the patio alot and it was bigger than most. We really liked Seascapes.
If you look at the design of the building, you will notice that most units are at about a 45* angle to the gulf. there are a very few ( privately owned I suspect) that are actually at the end of the building and ocean front. If you snoop around ABSea rentals web site, I think you can find a listing of their condos, pictures, and a condo lay out map. For true ocean front and space for a family of 5, I might suggest something through VBRO in the way of a beach house, or one of the other condo locations on the beach. If you are not familiar with Galveston, it is mostly sea wall...there are very few properties ( except beach houses on the far west end) that are actually "ocean front" most are across the road from the beach. Check a google earth view of Galveston to get a better idea of the beach area. It isn't like Gulf Shores, or Destin where the beach is at your door.
We are a family of six we were not right on the beach as our apartment was near the back but we had two balconies that over looked the beach and over looked the pools where the kids played. It is to this day one of my favorite vacation spots we will be back in October looking at properties. The staff was wonderful and my children range in ages of 5-16 and they all had a favorite part to the condo. I always have to have beach front but even set back where we were on the third floor we had a great view. The room we stayed in was perfect for our family size and still had room to entertain guests that came to visit while we were in Texas!
