About Linda

My husband and I are in the medical profession in Houston Texas. We come to Galveston to relax and have fun with the kids.

Linda purchased this condo in 2010

Why Linda chose Gulf Coast

With 3 young boys, we wanted a place that we all could enjoy, and also rent out. We had looked at differant areas for some time. Galveston is easy to get to from Houston. This condo is located on a quiet part of the island and yet only minutes from the restaurants and the seawall. It was an obvious pick for us. With the aminities at our disposal and the location, it has exceeded our expectations. We have visited lots of really nice resort type hotels around the country. This is unique and superior to most.

What makes this condo unique

The Diamond is the ideal place for a family or just for a nice relaxing getaway. I love sitting on the balcony in the morning drinking my coffee, looking for dolphins, or just reading my book! The balcony is my favourite place. The gym is fantastic and I like to go there. The boys are always kept busy in summer and winter. Between the game room, the pools, slide, not to mention watching movies they pick in the delux movie theatre! Bring your own popcorn and drink. My husband spends some time in the business center on the computers or his labtop. My husband and kid do lots of fishing. There is a pier within a mile from the condo. Lots of charter boats too.

The Diamond beach Resort is located at the end of the seawall on the west side, before The Escapes,Pirates beach.

Wonderful property! The balcony and view were the best. Grandkids loved the pool/river/slide.

  • 4 of 5

The balcony was spacious. Grandkids loved the pool/lazy river/slide. Unit was very comfortable and kitchen had very basic items...bring your own specific cooking items. The only negative was parking as the additional lot was not secured or lit...very dark.

Best Condo Experience Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Property was great - lots of amenities- more than any other place on the Island. It thunder stormed during our trip but the indoor pool saved us -- perfect!

The condo itself-- wonderful! Quite spacious, great view, comfy indoor and outdoor. Great patio seating for relaxing and eating. Clean, well maintained, nicely laid out and decorated. Cold AC, which is a must!

Everything was perfect. Kids and adults alike were charmed, entertained, comfortable, and impressed.

We will be back!

Very nice property and exactly as described.

  • 5 of 5

The room was great and offered plenty of space for our group of 4 adults and two kids. The amenities were a huge plus, especially for the one day of rain we had. The owner was great and had everything set up for us without any problems.

Beautiful view, great location

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to Galveston was a very good experience. The condo had a large balcony overlooking the ocean and pool. The balcony was large enough for our grandchildren to play and was comfortably furnished. It was definitely our favorite place to hang out with drinks or morning coffee. The condo complex was a short drive or walk to all that we wanted or needed. Many activities were available. We especially enjoyed the pool and movie room. The pool had many shallow areas which were good for children. All in all it was an enjoyable vacation, and we hope to return in the future.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo had everything we could want. The beds were comfortable and we had 6 teenagers with us for a total of 8! The sitting areas on the patio, by the pool, and the three separate bedrooms gave everyone their space. It was nice that the game room was right down the hall and the movie theatre was really nice and made watching a movie on vacation feel like a treat! The beach access was easy and nice but after the first day everyone hung out in the luxurious pools and hot tub! I myself enjoyed a massage in the chocolate spa! Out teenagers did not get on the waterslide but did enjoy the lazy river. We reserved a grill and had a lovely day out by the pool!! This place is a true diamond and we will be back!!
