Palisade Palms condo description

Available for weekly rentals, six night minimum.

Uptight?

Head across the causeway to Galveston Island and feel the tension in your shoulders loosen. Admire the charming Victorian homes on Broadway as you approach the Gulf. Smile when you see the waves of East Beach. When you arrive at Palisade Palms, feel the gentle breeze in your hair. Enter the cheerful lobby and take the quick elevator ride to your beach getaway. Put down your bags and head for the balcony. Smell the salt air. Listen to the sound of the surf and the gulls. Exhale.

Feeling a little better?

What'll it be next? A walk on the beach? Shopping on the Strand? An umbrella drink? A festival? A good burger? A spot in the sun? An Island tour? Some live music? Galveston will keep you as busy or as inert as you want to be. High-brow or 'down and dirty', the Island has it all. The only stress you'll have is what to do next.

So relax and enjoy your stay. Who says therapy has to be painful?

                          • This east end location is off the beaten path and yet is only ten minutes from The Historic Strand, the Boliver ferry landing, the cruise ship terminal, the bustling Seawall, fine restaurants, shopping and many tourist attractions. A short drive across the island will take you to Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn Waterpark. And, of course, there's the beach...Watch dramatic sunrises, coffee in hand, while sitting comfortably on your private balcony. Watch the cruise ships and merchant ships head out to sea. Walk over the dunes to miles of clean, wide beach. Spend the day under a big umbrella enjoying the sand and surf. Palisade Palms is a premier location; clean and new and meticulously kept. The building has many amenities. Spend the day by our crystal blue pool. Play a game of billiards or watch the game on the big screen TV in our game room. Relax in our hot tub. Enjoy the view from our lanai. Complimentary newspapers, coffee and iced tea are available on our mezzanine on weekends....moreless

                            The condominium was exactly as described and very well maintained. Photos are very accurate and other than a slight issue with the refrigerator the unit was very clean. The fridge problem was handled quickly and Jan was very easy to work with. We love the location, the pools and easy access to the beach. The staff were all very helpful and friendly with any questions or requests. We found several places to enjoy happy hour and dinner including the new Grotto at the San Luis Hotel, Nicks at Gaido's for really good happy hour appetizers, The Porch Cafe (located at Beach Town which is in walking distance!)and Murphy's Pub near the Strand for cold beer and tasty pizza.

                            The condo was beautifully decorated and maintained. The view from the dining room of the twin balconies to the east and west is impossible to capture in a single photo but made for breathtaking views. My wife and I have kids ages 6, 10 and 12 and all had a blast during our week-long stay. Apart from the beach and the pool, we spent time at Schlitterbahn and the Pleasure Pier which were both short drives from the condo. Will definitely consider returning on future stays in Galveston.

We will definitely be coming back and hope to stay here in the future. Our kids loved the pools and the beach access was perfect. The adults loved being able to sit out on the balcony in the mornings and evenings to soak up the view!

                            My family has spent many summers coming down to Galveston and we always try to stay somewhere different (beach houses) just to change up our trip a little. Last summer we discovered Palisade Palms and had a great stay, which is what brought us back to Palisade Palms again this year. We wanted a different view this time and when I saw the picture of the aqua chairs on the patio, I was sold. The condo was perfect! Fully stocked for cooking meals. Had all the comforts of home with a gorgeous view! We had coffee in those aqua chairs every morning and wine every night. My boys were comfortable in their room and my husband and I slept great in ours. We no longer need to stay somewhere different each time we come... this condo is it!! Palisade Palms is hands down the best place to stay in Galveston. We recommend it to everyone! The beach has barely anyone there, so it felt private! The pools were great with plenty of lounge chairs for everyone. My boys had fun playing in the game room in the evenings. Things to do in Galveston that we enjoy are Moody Gardens (get a 2 day pass so you can see it all!), Pleasure Pier, The Strand and exploring the Seawall. We always have lunch at Kemah Boardwalk on our way home. Thanks for a great stay Jan and Greg!!

                            This vacation rental was beautifully decorated and filled with everything we needed. The views are amazing and the building well maintained. Our kids loved the two swimming pools and we started every day with coffee on the balcony overlooking the gulf. We can recommend going on the Galveston Duck tours, our children ( 7 and 8 years old) loved it and we learned some interesting historical facts as well. Kemah's Beast boat trip was also a blast. Brickhouse Tavern (few minutes away by car) had great chicken wings and Joe's Crab shack next door had great Lobster. The Gumbo diner in historic downtown had good food as well. The nifty little portable electric grill in the condo was great for grilling steaks on the patio at night. We would highly recommend this property and the owner was a pleasure to deal with. We are going to miss our morning coffees and evening cocktails overlooking the stunning view from both patios and will definitely return to the rental!

                            This 2 bdrm condo was heaven on earth! From the view of Galveston and the harbors from the first bdrm balcony on the right to the enormous views from the master bdrm of the beautiful beach and Galveston lights at night from the master wrap around terrace accessed from the living room as well, this was the best birthday EVER for me. Everything here was perfect. The beds were heavenly to sleep in-we needed only to bring our swimming suits, groceries, and sun screen. The beach was gorgeous and the access to the beach was perfect. The swimming pools, game room, and we even played basketball in front of the Towers was just an absolute great time! (we forfot our tennis rackets!)The "Twin Towers" as the Palisades are affectionately called, have the best security and are the safest I have ever seen at anyplace I have ever stayed at the beach. I hated to leave there and I can't wait to get back there. Galveston was as beautiful as any beach I have ever been too in any area of the world. The Pleasure Pier was a 5 minute drive-had a blast on the rides,-they have great restaurants, one called "The Spot"--great food and desserts! We watched the cruise ships come in from the condo and then went to Landrys at the port and watched them leave-and THEN shopped downtown Galveston, only to return to our gorgeous, wonderful condo at the Palidsades Palm. Jan V., the owner, has left nothing to be wanted or needed and was a joy to rent from. You'd be totally missing out to rent from any other place on the island--you MUST experience this!!

                            The condo was clean and well furnished. Pictures did not do it justice. The complex is great, was able to workout in gym located on second floor. Easy access to the beach. Pool area was fantastic.

                            What a fantastic condo! The view alone would have made for a very memorable stay. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay and will definitely be back. We live in Houston and visit Galveston often and this is by far the best facility on the island. The condo itself was very clean and had every comfort of home that you could need, including salt and pepper! The owners have done a great job of making you feel welcome and relaxed. The pools and other amenties are top notch and most were readily available at all times. The beach on this part of the island is wide and expansive with plenty of space for everyone, no crowds. Cannot wait until next year!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2010

                          About the owner: We bought our place at Palisade Pams after losing our beach house to Hurricane Ike and losing a family member to a long illness. Those were some stressful times. Our 'little slice of paradise' helped us make it through. The drive down from Houston on Friday afternoons, the anticipation of putting down the cares of the day and the opportunity for respite was a blessing for us. Fixing up our place and becoming part of the Island was such good therapy. Now, we are pleased to be able to share it with you.

                          Why the Owner Chose Palisade Palms:
                          This building is right on the beach! The location is super. The beach is in great shape. The fifteenth floor location makes for a great view. The building is shiny and new and has many amenities.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          This condo has two balconies! The popular Pompano floor plan has balconies on the beach side and the other bayside.See the sun rise and watch it set again.
