Overview

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 Galveston

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! ;-)

Peaceful bliss!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough nice things about Damian and his condo! It is comfortable and tastefully decorated. The beach was perfection! The location is away from the tourist areas but close enough so it is convenient. The in-site staff were extremely pleasant and helpful!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

The condo is in a private area of Galveston. The building is well maintained. The amenities were excellent (game room, pool, access to beach, etc). The condo unit itself seemed new or newly renovated. The decoration and furniture is very nice. I’d recommend this place, it felt like home.

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

  • 5 of 5

Your 14th floor condo at Palisade Palms was very comfortable and the balcony, beach, and on-site and off-site activities gave us a pleasant six day break.

The description of the condo was just what we were looking for. We could look down at the beach and off in the near distance to Galveston, Galveston Bay, and the Gulf of Mexico all the way to the horizon. One afternoon a spectacular thunderstorm blew into a mighty rage of wind and water. What fun to watch from the safety of the 14th floor.

The Gulf provided a nightly light spectacular with ships lining the horizon waiting to enter the Houston Ship Channel. Those enormous ships created a wonder as they transported their loads to and from ports world-wide. There we stood on our balcony watching it all!

We ate out only a few times, but to our surprise found the Hotel Galvez restaurant to be very good and in October they give ghost tours.

Damian Ameen was very accommodating and easy to work with. Staff and residents were friendly and eager to help. The endless coffee pot and newspapers started each day sharing news and ideas. Every elevator ride was a joy of entertaining and helpful exchanges.

We highly recommend the 14th floor condo at Palisade Palms.

AWESOME!!! Damian's condo is the best!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is an awesome condo!!! It has everything you could possibly need or want for your stay. In fact, this was our second time to stay at Damian's condo. Damian is a pleasure to work with. He's very prompt to answer any questions you might have. He's thought of everything to make his condo second to none. The furniture is very comfortable and functional -- like being in your own home. There's TV's in every room, and they each have all the channels. The beds are extremely comfortable. Whenever we go on vacation, we like to eat out, so we didn't really do any cooking, but the kitchen is well-equipped. There's also beach toys, coolers, etc. in the utility closet. Like i said, Damian has thought of everything. You WILL NOT go wrong if you rent his condo!!! It's a great condo in a great complex. The Palisade Palms is the very best resort in Galveston, bar none. It's super nice with every amenity you could think of. The entire property is well-maintained and cared for, AND it's super secure. At first, it is a little overwhelming learning about all the places you need to use your fob for entrance, but once you get the hang of it, you really appreciate the security. One of my favorite features about the Palisades is that there are only a few condos per each floor. The floors are serviced by three elevators, so that means virtually NO WAITING for an elevator. I can't stress the convenience of that enough!!! Another nice touch is an ice machine on the third floor, outside the game room. You can ice up before heading out to the beach -- no driving to the store for a bag of ice!!! But, when you do leave the condo, it's conveniently located to much that Galveston has to offer. So, come to Galveston. Stay at Damian's. You will not regret it!!!

Absolutely Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

So many wonderful things to say about this property. If you are looking for a place to vacation on Galveston Island, this is definitely the place. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left everything was fabulous. The staff was very welcoming and made us feel so comfortable. The communication with the owner while booking was so easy. He was very responsive and answered all of our questions.

The balcony was very large and complete with a large table and super comfortable chairs. It had an amazing view of the beach and the swimming pool. The interior was beautiful. It came stocked with everything you might need for your get away. It had a full-size refrigerator, stove, microwave, pots, pans, pillows, blankets, towel, etc. The security was impeccable. We always felt safe while we were there.

The game room was huge and offered a variety of entertainment including the Astros on the large television. This would be perfect for any family looking for a week-long vacation, or a couple just looking to relax.

Overall this property exceeded my expectations. The pictures do not do this property justice. It is absolutely stunning and I would highly recommend it. We look forward to returning soon.

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.
