This condo is in the Palisade Palm resort complex in Galveston on the East Beach which is the most exclusive beach in Texas. Construction was completed in 2008 and it is ON THE BEACH, not across the street or next to a crowded state park; it is in THE BEST LOCATION if you want privacy and immediate access to a wide sandy uncrowded beach. It is also THE BEST condo complex on the island, NOTHING COMES CLOSE. Unlike seawall locations, there are no traffic jams and no proliferation of commercial development and you don't have to cross a busy street to get to the beach. It is minutes from the downtown Strand area and close to all of the wonderful Galveston attractions and the many events held yearly in Galveston. The complex was designed to be hurricane proof, construction was completed in 2008, and was immediately tested by Ike and passed with flying colors. Today the complex is more beautiful than ever.

About the owner: This condo is our family's home away from home. A place where several generations can meet for fun on the beach. The island has seen many improvements over the years, new restaurants, attractions, special events, etc. so it is more fun now than ever. Repairs after Hurricane Ike have not only restored, in many areas improved the facilities for vacationers.
Why the Owner Chose Palisade Palms: We have owned vacation property on Galveston Island for over 20 years and in 2008 purchased this condo because of the high quality and amenities of the complex and the privacy of being on East Beach. There are many fine condo complexes on the island, but this is the best of the best.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Great fitness center, pools, tennis and basketball courts, common areas, walks on wide uncrowded beach, ultimate location for privacy, relaxation, and high end accommodations.
