About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

Beautiful Beach Front two bedroom one den, 2.5 Bathroom condo available for a Minimum of SIX nights. This is a requirement of the Association and no way around it. Weekly Rates quoted are for SEVEN nights. Many others are for six nights.

Take a vacation with out the travel hassle. An easy drive from anywhere in the Houston area. Access from other areas is very convienent with two major airports near by-Hobby and Bush International.

Right on the Beach...NO SEA WALL. The beach is in a section that is secluded and very private. We are now offering WEEKLY RENTALS at the Palisades Palms the newest and the ONLY luxury high rise condominium RIGHT ON the beach! No Sea wall between you and the water...just walk right on out to the beach from the property. NO CROWDS even on the most crowded days in Galveston. They stay far away, 1 mile in one direction and 2 miles in another...with nothing but empty beach in between. Location just can not be beat..Close to downtown Galveston and easy access. For those of you who have not been here in several years things are a changing. Building and units are beautifully appointed. Up scale decorating and the latest in electronics-50 inch flat screen in main area, 32 inch flat screens in bedrooms.

There is nothing like it in Galveston. It is an easy 1 hour drive from down town Houston so not only can you enjoy the beach but you can visit Houston and its many attractions. This unit has a view of the Gulf, the city of Galveston and the bay. Sunrise and sunset views. It is far away from the crowded beaches. You have the beach to yourself. No crowds, no cars ......nice quiet and private.

It is in perfect location...on the beach with very few surrounding buildings or residences yet 10 mins from the Strand and all it has to offer. The resort building itself is a spectacle with its grand lobby to the swimming pools.

Free coffee served in the lobby area, a media room for movies a 2400 square foot gym with machines, free weights and treadmills. There is a sauna in the gym area. No expense has been spared in this building you will be surrounded by luxury appointments from the moment you pull up.

Party room with pool table, foose ball, air hockey!

Get away with out traveling very far from home if you live in the Houston area. You can fill a whole week of vacation activites here. We just did and it was great. All were affordable and reasonable Here is an example:

Moody Gardens-easily most of the day great for overcast days or if it is rainy.

NASA Space Center 30 mins north and great for the kids most of the day....then head to Kemah boardwalk for dinner and shopping

If you are into water parks Shlitterbahn can take up most of the day and is open even if the weather is not so good!!!

The Strand is great for an afternoon or two. Do Ice Cream at LaKings and then stop in and see one of the attractions-The great storm movie (20 mins or so), the Ocean Star Drilling rig 1-2 hours depending on age of kids and interest, the Elissa Tall ship 1-2 hours.

Still want to try the Air museum but that sounds like it is better for the older kids, maybe next time.

The Duck tour was a lot of fun and took up about 90 mins or so of time.

As for food we ate in most of the time since the view was the best from our balcony! But NY Pizza is great and we used them several times during out last stay....Mario's was ok. Hooters was well Hooters all fried food and the grilled grouper sandwich was so salty I think we retained water for several days. So much for a healthy choice...that does not exist.

The Spot was great for lunches or early dinners and a drink. Mostly a hamburger joint. Some one else recommended the Cajun Greek restaurant on 61st but we did not get there on this trip.

If you need that link back to work we have installed both wireless and wired highspeed internet in the unit it self. There is also wifi in the common areas of the building.

About Damian Ameen

We love the beach life. This condo is one of five beach front properties we own and rent. Part of my wifes collection as I call it. From North Myrtle Beach, Galveston, Hawaii and Italy you have several very different choices and locations.

Damian Ameen purchased this condo in 2008

Why Damian Ameen chose Gulf Coast

There is not other property we would consider buying. This is the priemer property. One of the newest and only one located directly on the beach. West End too far from all the fun stuff, Emerald you have to cross the roads to get to the beach, Diamond- so so layouts, terrible beach. We looked at them all. You have only a few people per floor, it is very secure and private. The amenities are all first class.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Damian,

We had a fantastic time! Your unit was perfect for our family. It was also great that we only had to take an elevator up from our family's unit on the 2nd floor when the day was over. (We played, entertained and dined with them a lot!) Also, we loved the concept of going to the beach, then, when you are tired of being sandy, going up to swim in the pool! It was a lovely setup!

My kids loved the "kids room", the "game room", and the "children's pool", and my husband and I actually worked out at the gym three times in our three day stay. That was impressive!

Hope you have a nice stay, and we hope to rent from you again!!!! I know that we visit our family in Galveston often, and we our now comfortable with the ammennities at Palisade Palms. We will be back!

Thank you again,

Jill and Tracy Terrell

As owners we are planning on spending a few weeks in Galveston to enjoy our unit ourselves. We welcome new guests. We have other condos in other areas and you can see comments for my other condos to get a feel for what to expect!

Great condo w beautiful furniture & plenty of TVs

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing getaway--so much better than a hotel!! The master bedroom has a king-size bed. There's a queen-size bed in the 2nd bedroom along with a queen sleeper sofa and full sleeper sofa in the living room and side-room, respectively. The "side-room" is nice place for small kids to watch TV away from the grown-ups.

The views are incredible. Your view is a perfect angled view all along the beachfront to the touristy areas far away. You also have excellent views of the city and the pool areas below. The balcony has very nice outdoor furniture which can accomodate a group or provide an intimate setting for 2.

I'm liking this so much that I'll be here for a few months. After I'm done, please enjoy! ;-)

Lovely place, terrific views.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent nine weeks of the winter of 2017 in this condominium (TW 1408 at the Palisade Palms Resort). We had an absolutely wonderful time. The views of the Gulf of Mexico and Galveston Island at night are spectacular from the balcony about 170 feet in the air. Everything inside the condo is first rate and works well. The furniture is all in good condition and comfortable, and the Wi-Fi works well, except perhaps in the far corner of the master bedroom. The owner is very solicitous and if any repairs are needed, takes care of it immediately. The building is by far the finest one on the island. It not only has pools and hot tubs outside, but also a walkway across the dunes to the beach. The lobby is staffed by concierge staff 24/7, and there is plenty to do, with a beautiful gymnasium and a very nice game room, and a couple of party rooms. The condo association even grooms the beach when seaweed washes up! We looked at a different condos on Galveston Island before finding this one, and knew it was just right for us for the winter.

Beautiful condo with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has the best view! You can see the ocean out of all the windows, plus beautiful city views of Galveston. From the balcony the ship channel can be viewed. We sat and watched giant ships come into port. Bring binoculars so you can watch the action all over the island, check traffic, etc...The condo's kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, lots of dishes and utensils--everything that is required to cook and eat meals. They even had tons of storage containers, which was appreciated. The wifi worked perfectly the entire stay and was high speed. We had plenty of towels and washcloths and if we ran out (which was not possible because so many are provided) there is a very well working washer and dryer set in the unit. Both bedrooms have king sized beds and both were comfortable. Plenty of extra sheets and blankets stored in the master closet. The kitchen closet was full of items to use on the beach: a large cooler, two chairs, boogie boards, buckets and tools to make sand castles. We truly felt at home in this condo. Damian Ameen, the owner, is a friendly guy who promptly answered all my emails and put me at ease about any worries I had. Don't hesitate renting this condo, you will not regret it. My family and I hope to stay in this condo again next year.

A perfect location. The Palisade Palms is surrounded by a open wildlife preserve. Very private and very quiet. You typically have the beach to yourself. Yet with in five miniutes you can be down town at the best restaurants and entertainment.
