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.

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Galveston, TX, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Great fitness center, pools, tennis and basketball courts, common areas, walks on wide uncrowded beach, ultimate location for privacy, relaxation, and high end accommodations.
