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 Gulf Coast

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.

Loved this condo. It had everything we needed, super nice and lots of amenities. Owner was very accommodating and kept on touch to make sure we had everything we needed. We will be a returner to this property and hopefully this same condo unit. Thanks for allowing us to stay in your condo.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Ellen's condo. It is beautifully decorated and very nicely equipped. The view from the patio is amazing. The condo complex is very nice. Everything was bright and clean and all the employees are so nice. My husband was thoroughly impressed with the work out facilities. I can't say enough good things about our stay. I would highly recommend Ellen's condo to anyone looking for an extra special stay in Galveston.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review. I, too, enjoy sitting on my shaded balcony and seeing the pool, sandy beaches, wave action, instead of just views of the gulf. Please come back and thanks again for choosing to rent MY condo!

Beautiful, quiet, friendly, and secure property.

  • 5 of 5

Property is outstanding. Best property on the island. The amenities are exceptional. The condo is fully stocked with anything you could need or want. The balcony has wonderful views of the ocean and is great to enjoy a family meal on it. The condo itself is very spacious. We are already planning our next stay here.

Perfect Place For A Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Incredible views from a balcony that's low enough to enjoy the pool but high enough to relax and enjoy the long views of the Gulf. The entire facility has incredible amenities, top flight security, and is highly maintained and incredibly clean. The fitness center is 5* hotel quality and the baby's play/nursery is spotless and well stocked with toys and games. Access to the pool is about 2 minutes and maybe 5 minutes to the private beach. No need to hassle with dining out as the full service kitchen and spacious dining area makes cooking a breeze. Great place to kick back and enjoy a weekend of watching football on the big screen TV.

Great condo for a family or a girl's/guy's trip.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We visit Galveston often and have stayed many places. We loved this condo due to the location on the east end with nice beaches and easy access to many restaurants and the strand. The complex and the condo itself are beautiful and well maintained! The kitchen was well stocked for cooking and the views from the balcony were gorgeous! The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms clean and the washer/dryer and free coffee are an added bonus. Ellen was so nice and easy to work with. I would recommend this place without hesitation!
