Palisade Palms resort condo on Galveston's exclusive East Beach is the most desirable accommodations on the island. It is ON THE BEACH, not across the street or next to a crowded state park; it is in THE BEST LOCATION if you want privacy and immediate access to a wide sandy uncrowded beach. It is also THE BEST condo complex on the island, NOTHING COMES CLOSE. Unlike seawall locations, there are no traffic jams and no proliferation of commercial development and you don't have to cross a busy street to get to the beach. It is minutes from the downtown Strand area and close to all of the wonderful Galveston attractions and the many events held yearly in Galveston. The complex was designed to be hurricane proof, construction was completed in 2008, and was immediately tested by Ike and passed with flying colors. Today the complex is more beautiful than ever.

Palisade Palms complex amenities: 2 heated pools: both overlook the beach, one is a zero edge swimming pool, the other a shallow wade pool with water features for children. Two outdoor hot tubs, beautiful lobby and second floor coffee bar area with free coffee in the morning, and a 2400 square foot gym with 27 pieces of new LifeFitness weight equipment plus free weights, treadmills, stationary bikes, elliptical, Stairmasters, locker room, and sauna. Game room with huge TV/DVD, leather chairs, fireplace, pool table, air hockey, and foosball table. Outdoor tennis, basketball court and beach volleyball net on the beach. Balls for outdoor activities may be checked out from the front desk. Large outdoor lounge area on third floor with public access to adjoining indoor bar/buffet areas for large group entertaining, and ping pong room. Elevators will take you from the parking floors up to the 4th floor unit. There is 24 hour service at the front desk and security personnel on premises. Free Palisade Palms wifi access on the first three floors with the fastest available private wifi in the unit.

Condo amenities: Beautifully furnished in a modern, yet elegant and comfortable beach style. This is the 'Malibu' floor plan with 1430 sq. ft. inside and a 196 sq. ft. balcony.

Master bath has double sinks, shower and over sized tub. The second bedroom has a queen bed with memory foam topper, a closet, and a bathroom with shower. Huge windows overlook the ocean in both bedrooms. There is a third (half) bathroom off the laundry area. The daybed in the den folds out to a double. The floors are bamboo hardwood and travertine tile. All counter tops are slab granite. Glass top dining table seats 6, plus breakfast bar and 2 bar stools. There is a vacuum, washer/dryer, iron/ironing board, and hair dryers in the unit. There is a DVD/CD player in the living room and a 42” flat screen TV. Flat screen TVs also in both bedrooms.

About Anita Breimayer Paulssen

This condo is our family's home away from home. A place where several generations can meet for fun on the beach. The island has seen many improvements over the years, new restaurants, attractions, special events, etc. so it is more fun now than ever. Repairs after Hurricane Ike have not only restored, in many areas improved the facilities for vacationers.

Anita Breimayer Paulssen purchased this condo in 2008

Why Anita Breimayer Paulssen chose Gulf Coast

We have owned vacation property on Galveston Island for over 20 years and in 2008 purchased this condo because of the high quality and amenities of the complex and the privacy of being on East Beach. There are many fine condo complexes on the island, but this is the best of the best.

What makes this condo unique

Great fitness center, pools, tennis and basketball courts, common areas, walks on wide uncrowded beach, ultimate location for privacy, relaxation, and high end accommodations.

Captivating views!

  • 5 of 5

There truly are no words or photos that can reflect the amazing time we had here. From the wonderful host to the check in and check out... it was all very stress free and delivered so much more than promised. We came here with our twins and we even brought grandma. We all enjoyed every bit as there is so much that age does not matter. It's super relaxing and the views leave you speechless... just enjoy them. 😉 The condo is very user friendly ... internet, tv's, fans, doors, etc. Our host had a folder with all the information we could need. She was amazing.. the place has all you could possibly need and is not cluttered with too many things. I definitely recommend this place! You can relax knowing that you're in good hands with a wonderful owner/host here. HomeAway made the entire transaction very friendly and stress free. We will definitely come back!

Great Family Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

We grew up in the Houston area and have visited Galveston many times over the years. This was the most beautiful spot we've stayed at! We brought our college age daughter with us on this family spring break trip. We really enjoyed the beautiful view and the pool area. This was great R&R for us. We spent a day on the Strand, and the rest of our time here. The owner is very responsive to any questions you may have, and has a notebook of all the things available to do on the island when you stay. This place is very clean and secure. We felt very safe here.

We had three generations staying together, and this was perfect for our family. It is furnished really nicely with a great kitchen with all the tools you'd want for cooking on a vacation. Anita helped us with planning from the very outset, and she anticipated all our needs in her condo. Outside the condo, access to the beach was wonderful, and we enjoyed the pools and hot tubs. Thank you so much, Anita.
