About the Property

Book Now to reserve! Immaculate 3/2 Oceanfront Condo with Gulf View

Only 40 minutes from Hobby Airport. Enjoy a stress-free vacation in a beautiful, fully-furnished and supplied, luxury condo in a 5-Star Resort property with gorgeous ocean views. This 3-bed, 2 bath unit is comfortably furnished with a king, a queen, 2 full-size beds and a queen-size sleeper sofa. (There is a six-person maximum occupancy unless prior written authorization is obtained, but ASK ABOUT A SECOND 5TH FLOOR UNIT AVAILABLE FOR LARGE GROUPS.) There are stunning 5th-Floor views from the condo of the Gulf of Mexico, the beach and the gorgeous Diamond Beach Resort. The Resort has beach access, an enormous beautifully landscaped pool with a lazy river and slide, a heated indoor pool, onsite bar (seasonal hours), theatre room, game room and a fitness room to rival any health club. You would never have to leave the property, but you will want to experience all that the City of Galveston has to offer - fine dining, historic properties and museums, Schlitterbahn Water Park, Pleasure Pier amusement park, live theater at The 1898 Grand Opera House and shopping on the Historic Strand. Weather concerns? Not a problem. The unit has 4 huge, flat-screen, Smart TVs, a secure wireless network and expanded cable. Take advantage of the indoor pool and game room until the sun is shining again.
Traveling with kids? Great. A full-over-full-size bunk bed will make them happy. In addition to expanded cable services and Wi-Fi, there is a DVD player and board games in the unit. Downstairs, there is the game room with free-play pinball and basketball games. The lazy river and slide (seasonal hours vary) will provide hours of entertainment. For small children, there is a bright, beautiful playroom on the property.
Do you need to mix business with pleasure? The secure wireless connection in the condo will allow you to use your laptop and wireless devices. The resort has a business center with computers. You can entertain and meet with clients in Bar None or the Wine Room.
Galveston has an abundance of highly-rated restaurants, but if you want to prepare meals, the condo is fully-supplied with anything you would need (except your groceries).
Finally, you can relax knowing that there is 24-hour guest services and security at the Diamond Beach Resort. Also, the owners are local residents and business owners who will be available to immediately address any issues that may arise with your vacation rental.

Galveston Island West Beach - Adjacent

Diamond Beach is Galveston's only five-star, mid-rise resort residences, located at the end of the historic Seawall. This 5th Floor, 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo has endless Gulf views, and all the luxurious amenities of the resort, including indoor and outdoor pools, spa, bar, fitness center, theater and game room. Located on Galveston’s West Beach, Diamond Beach enjoys the premier location on the island, on the south side of FM 3005, allowing residents the ability to walk out onto their own private beach and the Galveston beach beyond – without ever crossing a road.

Galveston Island is located on the Texas coastline just 50 miles south of Houston, featuring 32 miles of beaches and a relaxed atmosphere. There are abundant leisure activities, excellent medical facilities, award-winning restaurants and exciting attractions. A vibrant historic downtown, the Strand, offers easy access to cruise ships, fishing excursions, shopping and sightseeing.

Galveston is famous for its festivals - from Dickens on the Strand, to Mardi Gras and the Lone Star Bike Rally. For the athlete, there are sanctioned events scheduled all during the year. Galveston has shopping for any taste, whether it's antique, upscale, artsy, or beach trendy.

Top attractions include the famous Moody Gardens, which has the Aquarium and Rainforest Pyramids, an IMAX 3D, 4D Special FX theater and IMAX Ridefilm theaters; silky-smooth Palm Beach, with white sand and freshwater lagoons; and the 19th century style Colonel Paddlewheeler. Schlitterbahn Waterpark features uphill water coasters, water slides, kid’s playgrounds, whitewater rapids, wave poosl, hot tubs, plus the Boogie Bahn surf ride Schlitterbahn’s Wasserfest. The park offers a dozen heated attractions in a warm, tropical oasis featuring four enclosed tube slides, the Torrent Tidal Wave River, three speed slides, three water playgrounds and more. The historic Pleasure Pier is an amusement park over the Gulf of Mexico, fashioned after another historic landmark, Galveston's Electric Park. Traditional rides will include a 36-foot diameter, double-decker carousel and a 100-foot tall Ferris Wheel, and for the more adventurous, a steel roller coaster with a 100-foot vertical climb, 200-foot tall swing recognized as the highest ride in Texas and classic bumper cars for adults and children.

Museums cover every facet of land, sea or air, from the art deco Railroad Museum near The Strand, to the Ocean Star Offshore Museum on Pier 20, to the Lone Star Flight Museum, and the Texas Seaport Museum on Pier 21 featuring the Tall Ship Elissa.

Galveston is a great place to visit year round, with average temperatures ranging from the 60's in the winter to the upper 80's in the summer. Island life is also enhanced by the absence of traffic congestion, making it a quick 'commute' to any destination on the Island.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are local business owners and long-time residents in Galveston. We are available to answer any questions or address any concerns during your stay, even if it's only a recommendation for a restaurant.

Why the Owner Chose Galveston, TX, USA:
We bought this property because we fell in love with Diamond Beach, and wanted a place for family and friends to stay when visiting. We have furnished and supplied the unit as if it were a second home.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The views from the unit are simply breathtaking. When I stood in the kitchen, I could see for miles down the beach at low tide. Our kids loved the pools and game room. We love to relax at Bar None or work out in the fitness room, all the while enjoying amazing views of the Gulf of Mexico.
