About Jennifer Poindexter

We are a family of four. We live in Houston and this is our second home. It feels like we are on vacation every time we go.

Jennifer Poindexter purchased this condo in 2011

Why Jennifer Poindexter chose Gulf Coast

It was one of the nicest properties on the island and it's so easy to get to from Houston. It's hard to believe we are in Galveston when we are there... but without the plane ride and time involved. The property is by far the best on the market.

What makes this condo unique

The number of amenities, pools and quality of the unit. It is truly such a great stay and so close to Houston!

I want to give this rental a bad review...

  • 5 of 5

But only so this place doesn't get snatched up next time we want to rent this lovely condo.

The condo is well decorated & perfect for parents with smallish - to biggish kids. We have a 4-and-a-half-year-old & a 20-month & it worked perfectly for our family with a master connected to a master-bath & a 'kids' room with a bunk bed - twin on top, full on bottom with a pull out trundle.

The layout is great with open concept for the kitchen, living & dining. The patio looking out on the pool is very spacious with the ability to eat outdoors. The condo is located adjacent to the 'hot spot' of the pool (spa)- which was quite popular, but we were never disturbed by noise. The diamond beach staff were amazing, helpful & attentive - the grounds clean & groomed continuously.

The resort is located ON the beach - no playing 'frogger' across Sea Wall Blvd to get to the beach. The beach itself is not spectacular, but growing up in the woodlands & frequenting Galveston regularly as a child I knew what to expect (brown water, seaweed untwined with trash) but the kids had a great time, which is what mattered. My daughter loved collecting shells (great selection in the area) *tip- buy a mesh bag for shell collecting* and my son loved battling the waves & digging in the sand.

The resort itself is why we'll be back - great amenities: 300 ft three tiered pool with a 'kiddie' end that my kids loved. (Staff was out early each morning cleaning the pools.) A lazy river, a large slide, secluded hot tub, indoor pool, game room & a movie theater (pass on the infant room). They had live music on the weekend too! There were tons of available lounge chairs, even on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. However, resort provided tubes were all snatched up.

The condo has everything you need. I WAY over packed. *please do not expect these items each visit* next time I won't pack - beach towels, 6 bottles of sun screen, aloe, first aid kit, beach toys, straws, solo cups, beach toys (we added to the collection under the sink), blow dryer, curling iron, q tips, laundry detergent, toys (there are logos and toys in the kids trunk). Plenty of toilet paper,paper towels and cleaning supplies too. Check the fridge/pantry before heading to the store.

What I will pack are chip clips, Splenda, dryer sheets and if you have smalls, pack outlet plugs or tape that won't mess up wall paint. Only wish was stronger Only wish was stronger wifi to accommodate our Apple TV.

Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to stay at Diamond Beach Resort and would stay again. We rent a beach house every summer for a week, but this year we split our time between Houston Heights and Galveston. I have stayed at the San Luis when we only had a few days to spend in Galveston but we would have to have 2 rooms for the 4 of us and the pool very crowded. This resort and condo were perfect for our short stay and had many advantages over a beach house for a longer stay. The location was close to many of the things we enjoy doing in Galveston and had so many things to do at the resort, pool, lazy river, teen game room and indoor pool you didn't have to drive to. We stayed during the week and was relaxing and not crowded.

The condo had nice furnishings and provide many things you don't get with a beach house rental such as beach towels. The view from the large balcony of the pool was beautiful day and night. We would stay again! Thank you Jennifer for sharing your beautiful condo.

Beautiful Diamond Beach property - great for kids!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at several Diamond Beach condos. This one is a great 2-bedroom layout and excellent for kids! It has a large balcony and also a dining table. The second bedroom has a really great bunk bed and lots of toys in a chest. The second floor is very convenient to the kids playroom and the indoor pool. Thanks - we'll be back!

Owner's Response: So glad to hear you enjoyed! Great to hear the kids did as well. Having kids myself - I know they need entertainment and it helps so the adults can relax and the kids have something to do!

Amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was in the perfect spot over looking the pool! It was super clean with everything we needed in the kitchen and other supplies around the house. We went into a friends condo and it was very cluttered with lots of "nick-nack/collectibles" and extra furniture to hold it. This condo was so nice because it was clutter free and comfortable! I would highly recommend this condo!!
