Peaceful - Best part-Actually On The Beach!
I love the quiet and calming landscape that this property has provided to compliment the beach area. I will come back again and again, apparently these owner of these two rooms love to accomodate, they had video library in each room, games provided for our amusement and other added special treats,love the St. Croix condo we stayed in 2310 and 2315. Thank you for the special time
Vacationed at Seascape in June of 2003 and had a wonderful time..........our 2 bedroom apartment was right on the beach, was clean and had a great pool and the price was right......I can't wait to go back again!
Were looking forward to our Seascape experience untill we opened the condo door. The unit was dirty, the dishes were dirty, there was rust on anything able to rust and the furniture and carpet were stained and outdated. When we reported the condition of the unit the management acted astounded and assured us they "had no idea" these conditions existed. DUH. The balcony was so tiny you could not pass another person and the railing obstructed the view. Now we know why there are NO pictures of the inside of the building. Wish I had found this web-site before we booked.
Seascape is the Best!
We just finished our third stay (October2003) at the Seascape in the last year and think it is a wonderful place. The grounds are kept up, including the pool and the hot tub area which is one of the nicer ones I have seen in a condo situation. Pretty hibiscus flowers everywhere and very easy access to the beach from the rooms and the pool area. We always stay in the Grand Caymans that face directly onto the beach and have found those rooms clean and nicely furnished, with plenty of towels and nice extras. We had one problem with the door not working and was fixed promptly, within three hours.
Seascpae is great for families and young people
We have just returned from a weekend at the Seascape and found it to be a very pleasant place with well kept grounds and easy access to the beach. It is family oriented with a nice heated pool and spa. There is a security guard on duty after 4:00PM. Our condo unit was clean and well maintained.
Waht a dump
I'm in unit 1311 (The Grand Cayman) facing the beach as I write this. These units on the inside are nasty, not well kept up and rotting from the inside out. Condos are individually owned so it's up to the owner to keep them in reasonably good condition. It's a crap shoot and from my experience of renting condos on the beach you usually get CRAP. So far this unit is the worst. The carpet is soiled so bad we wont walk barefoot on it. The couch was so soiled we had to take the comforter off of the second bedroom and drape it over the couch just so we could sit on it. The TV is a 1979 Zenith. Utensils? You need a tetnas shot if you want to use them. It amazes me that owners of the prime location beach front units (they go for about 150k) won't even spend a few hundred bucks to make them livable. On the plus side, the pool and exterior grounds are nice and well kept. Plus, the complex has direct access to the beach without having to cross seawall blvd. My advice: Think twice before booking here.
We did not enjoy our three night stay at the Seascape in July of 2003.
The unit we stayed in was completely outdated. The kitchen only had a small toaster oven, a two burner stove, and a microwave. The place smelled dank and mildewed. There was dust literally encrusted on the walls, a/c vents and blinds. The carpet was disgusting, the mattress on the pull out couch was unfit for humans to sleep on and the bunk beds in the hall were unsafe. They had sharp metal brackets and rusty wires protruding from their framework. We had to cover these with adhesive tape and cloth so my three-year-old would not gash his head on them!
And the parking attendants extremely rude and unhelpful. The review guidelines specify no profanity, so I will leave out any more colorful descriptions. Suffice it to say, we will never stay there again!
Had a GREAT time, but....
We had a GREAT time in Galveston!! Enjoyed the beach, the strand, the restraurants, the sun!!! However, our stay at Seascape was not all that pleasant. The first night - no air conditioning in our unit!!! The temperature was off the charts!! and by the time we noticed - coming back from the beach - the office was closed. We called the emergency number - NOTHING!!! We spent the night on the fold out couch with the sliding glass door open to get a breeze. VERY UNCOMFORTABLE!!!! The next morning they did move us to a nicer unit with working air and phone ( the phone didn't work in the bad unit and evidence of roaches,too), but we were still charged full price for the AWFUL night in the BAD unit. A great complex with a great location - needs work and nicer leasers!!!!!!
Plz stay somewhere else!
we stayed at the seacrap as i like to call it june of 2002. it looked nice on the outside but it was nasty on the inside it was outdated and the two out of three chairs we were provided with were broken. In the morning before we left we saw small roaches walking on the table tops.
We didnt even enjoy our stay these condos need MAJOR cleaning even tho when we made reservations we quickly got rules and were warned if stains were found IN THE CARPET we would be charged extra...........
how would they have known there were stains already there plz dont stay here look into casa del mar or the victorian these condos are AWESOME!
On the beach and reasonable
We stayed here in July of 2002. It was nice to be directly on the beach. The beach could have been cleaned up (alot of seaweed). The pool was nice with a hot tub and a kiddie pool. The room was a little outdated but clean. The fact that it was a condo, not a hotel room, was great because we had a kitchen, living area and bunkbeds in the hall.

He doubted me and probably for his own sanity said it was just dog poop, we finally agreed upon staying at that campground but in a different spot. Still grosses me out now to think about it, ...
