About Doy & Sharon Freitag

My wife and I decided that we wanted to purchase a beach property for vacations with our ever growing family. We began our search in Port Aransas, Texas, but had no luck in finding exactly what we wanted. We then decided to venture to Galveston where we had both vacationed as children. After one weekend, we fell in love and purchased our condo the following week. We now share our condo with our 4 children and their spouses, as well as our 6 young grandchildren and it has quickly become our favorite place to create memories with them.

Doy & Sharon Freitag purchased this condo in 2012

Why Doy & Sharon Freitag chose Gulf Coast

After looking at several properties, we decided on Palisade Palms for one simple reason, it was the best. It had the best amenities, the best views and the best location as it is not far from the happenings of Galveston. It had the perfect feel of luxury and relaxation for us and our family. It was a place we knew our family, friends and guests would love as well.

What makes this condo unique

The Palisade Palms has that instant WOW factor as soon as you walk into the lobby with beautiful decor and large windows over looking the pool and ocean. As soon as you walk in, you know that you are in for an amazing stay.

Perfect Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and three young boys stayed in this condo for 7 days and enjoyed every minute of it! The condo has been updated with wood floors, but everything in the photos are accurate. Very warm and inviting, we felt completely at home!

Even though it had a bay view balcony, you could still see views of East Beach and watch the ocean waves crash the surf. That being said, it was actually entertaining to watch the ships come in and out of Galveston Bay, which was a pleasant surprise. Also, the sunsets are AMAZING from this unit.

The kitchen is a home cook's dream. We had everything we needed to cook and bake! When it came time to rest, we were lulled to sleep by very comfortable beds with super soft pillows that you just sink into each night. Very thankful the owners took the time and thought to furnish very comfortable beds. It's quiet and very relaxing. The master has blackout shades, so you could sleep all day if you're not careful!

The property is extremely secure and accommodating. The pools were amazing for our kids - we found ourselves spending more time at the pool than the beach! There are also plenty of amenities offered, such as a game room, ping pong, fitness center, a kids playroom, and self serve coffee every morning.

The Palisade Palms is Galveston's best kept secret, and we would absolutely recommend anyone of our family or friends to stay in this unit. Mr. Freitag was very easy to work with and communicate with, and that means a lot to me when working with an owner. Also, checking in and out was a total breeze. My only negative is that we had to go home! But, we will be back :)

Super clean, beautiful place on the beach with WARM pool and 2 hot tubs

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and two tween daughters spent a week in this condo. The condo and the rest of the property was spotless and beautifully furnished. We knew the weather might not be that warm in March so a warm pool was a big priority for us. There are two very nice pools -- one is cooler and one is like bath water. There are also two hot tubs. We enjoyed all of it. We generally eat out but because the kitchen was so nice, we ended up eating in more than usual. This property is easily the nicest property on the beach in Galveston. The staff is great and the unit is impeccable. The owner was easy to work with. Highly recommend staying here.
