We arrived later than expected on a week night and Nina kept in touch by text message giving us tips on how to get to the Castle.
When we arrived we were totally surprised just how nice the upstairs of the Castle was.
Nina had bought some drinks and fruit for us since we were arriving late. It was such a treat after a long flight.
After spending three days in Galveston, we realized we had found a gold mine. The Castle is a block away from the new Pleasure Pier Amusement Park. There is a great sidewalk all the way from Pleasure Pier along the Sea Wall that was great for strolling or jogging.
Nina had provided shampoo and conditioner in large bottles, as well as all condiments you would need in the fridge. Such a nice touch. We will never stay in a normal hotel room again.
This was our first experience with airbnb but will certainly not be our last.
The front room was big with a queen hide a bed, a day bed, and a trundle, so all four of us guys had our own bed. It was great!!
My family and I stayed in the upstairs unit of the Castle. My experience with Nina was EXCELLENT! Nina was one of the best communicators I've had so far on Airbnb. (I rent quite often) She was prompt in returning phone calls and answering questions. Although we were late in arriving at the apartment she met us promptly to let us in and give us instructions.
The apartment was SPECTACULAR!! Perfectly portrayed in the pictures, and very clean. There were extra linens and towels, as well as special little touches such as fresh flowers, bottled water, and fresh fruit. The beds were comfortable and space to put our clothing was available. There were proper dishes and utensils to use and everything functioned properly in the kitchen. It felt like home!
The location was excellent as well. One block to sandy beaches and very close to the entrance to Pleasure Pier.
I rate this experience 5 stars. I would not hesitate to stay at the Castle again, or to rent from Nina again.
