Frequently Asked Questions
What is Islander East?
Islander East was the first beach-front condominium that opened on Galveston’s scenic East Beach in 1974. Our 9-story building is self-managed by a homeowner’s association with a Board of Directors, so it will feel like your hometown neighborhood.
Each Condo unit is individually owned and many owners have made custom changes to upgrade or even combine units.
Most owners choose to enjoy their Galveston condo as a second home, but some choose to rent their unit when they are away.
We have in-house management and a cloud-based reservation system to rent individually owned units with a link on this site. You may also just call the front desk at 409-765-9301 for assistance.
How accessible is the Beach and other Galveston attractions?
The Beach is in our back yard! There are no busy streets to cross. And, since the Islander East Association owns the land to the water, there’s no vehicular traffic on the beach, except beach patrol and other emergency/maintenance vehicles.
Because of our premium East Beach location, you’ll spend less time in your car and more time on vacation! Please see the “Attractions” tab and the Map, to see how close you’ll be to restaurants, entertainment and Galveston’s best kept secrets.
