My boyfriend and I stayed in Christine's apartment for our first trip together! For being college students, this was the perfect place for us. It was very affordable and the perfect size for just the two of us. It was easy to locate and very close to the restaurants we wanted to eat at. I would highly recommend staying here for a quick trip to Galveston!

What a calming get-away spot! The space is bright and airy with lots of windows. I felt immediately relaxed walking in the door. Perfectly located with quick access to the beach/sea wall and an easy jaunt to the strand. Christine was a superb host - accommodating, friendly, and responsive. I would absolutely love to stay here again!

Island Skies is a true tropical escape in the heart of Galveston's historical district and just steps from the Galvez Hotel, the Pleasure Pier and the famous Seawall Blvd. The perfect getaway spot for a few days or weeks of island relaxation! The upstairs studio is spacious with a cozy atmosphere, and complete with all amenities one could need. The place was sparkling clean, bed super comfy, towels super soft. It was so nice to return to the studio off the street through the antique garden gate, and instantly feel a peaceful serenity, with the shady tropical trees and vines playfully welcoming me back! I found the most wonderful ocean breezes on the upstairs balcony overlooking the garden, and it was late July! Christine was a wonderful host, very welcoming, and offered a seamless checkin/out. I would like to think there's a Galveston refuge for many returns in the future!

Christine was really responsive when I had questions and she made it all very easy for me. The place is really nice and spacious for a studio. I'd gladly stay there again.

Beautiful & cozy! Close to everything! Amazing place!

Christine loves the island life. She loves spending the day with Gary, packing up the jeep, and heading out to the beach for a day of relaxing and picnicking. Christine also loves to travel especially taking long road trips and buying merchandise for her antique store. She also loves spending time with family. Much of her family lives in the Midwest but she also has a son, daughter in-law, and two grandsons here in Texas.
