About Ellen May
I live in Houston. I have been a licensed real estate broker for 35 years. I graduated from Rice University. I owned a property on West End in Galveston, but as a senior citizen, just knew I would enjoy condo living so much more. Palisade Palms with it's fabulous security was the answer as Galveston is one of my favorite places to 'get away from it all'. Come on down and enjoy what we love about our home away from home.
Ellen May purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Ellen May chose Galveston
Having been a realtor I was always cognizant of the first 3 rules of purchasing a home--1. Location 2. Location 3. Location. There are many similar plans in this hi-rise and of course they have different views. This Malibu has IT ALL! Views down the beach toward the Pleasure Pier/grand views of the Gulf/and a marvelous location to see pool area and water features etc. without being disturbed by the participants. We were pleasantly surprised to find we lucked out literally with this condo location. Totally shaded and breezy (usually) in the popular summer months, and sunny and warm during the winter months which make for year round enjoyment.
What makes this Condo unique
Without sounding redundant, the location of this particular unit was exactly what I was looking for in Palisade Palms. This floor plan affords 2 private separate bedrooms on either side of living area with en suite bathrooms. The bonus room has trundle beds but is a fun play room for kids also.

This was our first time to Galveston Island and we were so happy that we chose the east end of the island and Ellen's lovely condo at Palisade Palms. Ellen was very helpful in answering all questions and making sure our visit went smoothly. The listing and photos accurately depict this property. I would definitely recommend it! The condo is clean, beautifully decorated and well maintained. The beds were comfortable, there were plenty of towels, and the kitchen was well stocked. The balcony was shaded throughout the entire day and the view was perfect to look out at the pool, the Gulf, Pleasure Pier and to watch the flocks of pelicans flying by. The entire complex was bright and clean and all the employees were very nice and welcoming. Thank you, Ellen!
CS, what owner could ask for a finer review? I’ve moved it to the top of my list. Please come back! I’m getting new cable boxes and upgraded TV remotes.......finally.
Lovely and cozy.
Property is perfectly situated on beach. Staff is very helpful. Amenities are also outstanding.
We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this unit! Beautiful views and well appointed. Pallisade Palms offers many amenities and the beach access is far superior to most Galveston rentals.
Located near the best restaurants, Ellen's condo also is perfect for cooking your own meals too. Internet, televisions, and bed comfort all get high marks!
Hi Ft. Worth,
Sure appreciated your last minute booking and 5 star review. Come back soon.
Beautiful beach view! Beautiful condo - everything we needed!
Ellen's condo was perfect for our family - it felt just like being at home, very comfortable, beautifully decorated. We have been staying at the Palisade Palms for years but this was the first time at Ellen's and we will definitely be coming back. She was very attentive and wanted to be sure we had everything we needed, and that everything was working. The location on the east end of the island is perfect for going downtown and to the spots we like - Mosquito Cafe, Farley Girls, Sunflower Bakery (the pies o my!), and shopping on the Strand.
HF, thanks for taking the time to write such a positive review. I am so glad my condo rates right up there with the others in which you stayed at PP.
New tv for bedroom, new grill if you all come back.
Ellen's place was just what we were looking for. It has all the amenties you need and more, and to top it off has one of the best views! The condo was clean and tidy, and had what I call "extras." By that I mean there were little things like spices, and oil, and butter, towels, and even cleaning supplies. Some vacation rentals do not include these items, and it helps when you don't have to buy salt and pepper! The pool area was wonderful and the beach just a short walk over the walkway bridge! We loved it and hope to go back some day! Thanks Ellen!
PS - Ellen was very responsive to all of our requests too!
Your comments greatly appreciated. All the repairs you mentioned have been completed . My paper clip and a. Integrated washout even got the Keurig going again.
Thanks again for renting and please come back soon.
