Property description

Enjoy the beauty of a Galveston sunrise right from your very own balcony! Palisade Palms is situated directly behind the sand dunes at East Beach with full unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico. No seawall to cross, no traffic to contend with, and no unsightly views.

Located in the Trade Winds tower at beautiful Palisade Palms, TW-504 is a spacious 1,430 sq ft fully furnished oceanfront luxury condominium with 2 bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, and a den with convertible sofa. This unit sleeps four adults and two children very comfortably.

Both bedrooms and the living room open onto a large balcony overlooking the pool deck and the Gulf of Mexico. There is an electric grill on the balcony, so bring your steaks, burgers and favorite seafood.

Each bedroom has its own full bath, with a half-bath off of the living room. The Master BR is furnished with a queen bed, while the 2nd BR has two single beds that can be converted into a king size bed. All beds have down pillows and feather/down mattress toppers as well as high thread count Egyptian cotton linens. There are plenty of thick hotel quality bath towels and beach towels for your use during your stay. But in case you run out, not to worry - this condo has a large capacity Kenmore Elite HE5t washer and dryer in the unit. The kitchen is furnished with premium quality Bosch appliances: full-size refrigerator, electric range/convection oven, dishwasher, and microwave oven. Dinner service for eight, plus non-breakable glasses and dishes for use on the balcony or by the pool. A First-Aid kit and Fire Extinguisher are provided for your safety, and a iron w/ ironing board is provided just in case you need to touch up your evening clothes before going out to dinner.

Four LCD HDTV’s have been provided for your convenience: 1) a wall-mounted 42' TV in the Living Room with Blu-Ray Disk player and 5.1 Surround sound, including whole-house sound with speakers in both bedrooms. The quality Denon receiver/amplifier is iPod ready, so bring your iPod and listen to your personal music collection on the 5.1 surround sound system; 2) a 32' HDTV in the Master BR with built-in iPod dock and DVD player; 3) a 26' HDTV in the Second BR with DVD player; and 4) a 19' TV with built-in DVD player in the den.

Palisade Palms boasts some of the best amenities on Galveston Island. On the pool deck, enjoy the large adult infinity edge pool and the adjacent children's pool, two heated spas, and a fire pit. On the 2nd Floor, there is the Morning Lounge with coffee bar, group dining room, library and Fitness Center. The 3rd Floor offers a game room complete with big screen TV, board games, foosball, air hockey, and pool table, as well as the lanai deck and lounge.

The beach at Palisade Palms is rarely crowded, even during peak summer months, and is groomed regularly for your enjoyment. Palisades Palms is Galveston's newest and most luxurious high rise condominium, and best of all, it's situated directly on the beach! No seawall between you and the water; just walk directly out to the beach over the sand dunes on the newly reconstructed boardwalk.

No smoking and no pets allowed. Six-night minimum rental.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Owners: Bill and Teresa Bridges Home: Houston, Texas Favorite Past times: Travel, beachcombing, kayaking and golf.

Why the Owner Chose Palisade Palms:
Palisade Palms was the first new condominium development on Galveston Island in twenty years, and offered unparalleled quality, spaciousness, and amenities compared to existing condominiums on the island. And best of all, it is oceanfront property, family friendly with no crowds or busy streets to contend with.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We enjoy the quiet beauty of the sunrises, when Dolphins are often spotted offshore , as well as the stunning views of the Gulf from our balcony. We also love the fact that our uncrowded beach is easily accessible, where we can set up for a full day of enjoyment of sand, surf, and a wide variety of bird life and sea life. We often take long, romantic walks on the beach at sunset, enjoying the sights and sounds that are unique to the beach environment. Our grandchildren love to play on the beach, flying kites and building sand castles, boogie-boarding and throwing the frisbee. When they have had enough of the sand, they love to spend countless hours in the pool.
