Palisade Palms condo 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.

                            We've stayed at other condos in this building and this one was far better equipped. I like to cook so I'm usually the biggest critic of the kitchen while I realize most others will eat out more and be far less critical. This kitchen has everything you need to prepare a meal, you will need to bring your own spices, it could use a cookie sheet and the knives need sharpening (nothing there that downgrades my review) for the most part as I said much better equipped then most we've stayed at, you really feel more like you are at someones home than in a rental. The same goes for the living room, with very comfortable furniture it was a nice place to kick back and relax with great views. The floor plan is great with one room with bath and the den on one side and the master on the other. The master has a huge soaking tub and nice size shower, crazy strong water pressure (better than not enough) and double sinks. My only complaint of the master is that the bed is only a queen, it's soft, and you will feel the other person moving. I prefer a king and firmer bed so again this does not down grade my review because for a lot of people it may be fine. There is a high-end washer and dryer and plenty of extra towels and blankets so you really have what you need, even beach towels to take down to the pool. This building is the best on Galveston as fas as I know, you feel safe and secure, the beach is great, the pool, spas and gym are fabulous. You do get good internet access from this unit. Lots of cable channels although we found a lot more in bedrooms and less in living room unless we were doing something wrong. Overall I would greatly recommend this unit as the owners were very nice and even offered us some dining tips and where to find the fresh fish and shrimp at the dock which was well worth picking up. This condo will make you feel right at home.

                            The condo was great. The beds were very comfortable. I slept well from the first night, and it usually takes me two or three nights to really sleep good when i'm travelling. The condo was also great for the kids. They were right at home in the second bedroom; plus, they had their own bathroom. The condo is nicely decorated and well-equipped; however, please be advised, there is no bar soap. We went down to the beach soon after we arrived, but when we went back up to the condo to shower, we realized there was no bar soap -- we had to use the hand soap dispensers for that first shower. So, either bring your own bar soap, or stop at the store first thing. Also, even though the listing advertises wi-fi in the unit, there was no internet access available. The Palisades provides wi-fi only on the first three floors. I don't mean to be negative, because the condo really is great, and i would definitely stay there again, but i would also like to point out that there are no cable channels available on the main TV in the living room -- it only picks up the over-the-air channels. That would be my only request, is that the owner please consider adding cable access to the main TV as the other three TV's all have cable. Overall, though the condo is first rate, and you will not be disappointed if you stay there! I plan to return.

                            First class accommodations. Nice layout for our group of four adults. Easy access to clean, very well maintained beaches. Loved walking the beaches every day although no one in our group ventured out into the water. Facilities and furnishings all in excellent condition. This is definitely a top notch unit I would recommend to any group, all adults or adults with family. We all thoroughly enjoyed or stay.

                            Our family rented this condo on Jan 1st 2013 for several nights. The condo was very well equipped and extremely well decorated and comfortable. It felt very much like home to us. All the electronics worked as did the Wi Fi which kept the kids happy. Sadly we had some poor weather so used the condo more than we would ordinarily. The game room was a hit with the kids and the work out room was super. The staff were friendly and helpful. The owners of this condo were also very easy to deal with and helpful to ensure a wonderful stay. I would recommend this again and hope to go back in the Summer.

                            An amazingly beautiful, comfortable, stylish place right on the water. Owners were just a delight to deal with and quickly responded to any question we had. I've been going to Galveston for 30+ years, have stayed everywhere, houses and condos. This is by far the most wonderful complex and this particular unit is more than we could have ever imagined; I know it's trite, but the pictures do not do it justice. The Houston owners have thought of everything to make this place top notch. We've rented fabulous VRBO places in Florida and Kauai, and this unit in Galveston is truly at the top of the list. Everyone says it, but we are already planning a trip back to stay here. I feel very lucky that the owners share a place like this one. A real treat, in every way.

                            What a gem to find. This is truly a wonderful place to relax. We had 4 adults and 2 children stay in the apartment and all had plenty of room. The 4 televisions came in handy with the children and all the beach toys were great. You literally do not have to bring a thing for the beach or pool when yu rent this apartment. All the photos were exact. Beautiful view from the balcony and the pool was perfect. We loved the security and the game room was used a great deal also. The owner was wonderful to work with and the staff was also very helpful. We would highly recommend this facility

                            What more could we ask for?!?! Thank you for sharing your home away from home with us! The condo was just like the posted pictures. Communication with the owners was excellent, thorough and timely. Anything we could need was provided; plenty of linens and towels, a well appointed kitchen. The beach was beautiful, well groomed and "private". The property itself was first class, elegant and secure. The property staff were helpful and professional. We enjoyed the beach in the morning, spent the afternoons exploring Galveston, enjoyed evening walks and collecting shells on the beach followed by finishing our day swimming in the pool. Best of all, we had time to be together as a family, disconnect from reality for awhile, reconnect and slow down in a perfect setting. Thank you for contributing to the memory of our children's first visit to the beach!

                            My family and I stayed at Palisade Palms for the week of July 4th. We had a great time! The condo had everything we needed and some things we didn't even think of. My son found a boogie board in one of the closets and put it to good use. We watched the fireworks from the pool deck, the view was perfect with no traffic or crowds. The condo was nicely furnished and decorated and I loved the appliances. We will be back.

                          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.
