About Michael Ondrias

We live in Houston and bought our first unit in Diamond Beach in 2010. We loved spending time here with our family so much that we purchased a second unit to enjoy and let others enjoy.

Michael Ondrias purchased this condo in 2013

Why Michael Ondrias chose Gulf Coast

This property is perfect. It has something for all ages from infant to elderly. It is set up for fun and relaxation. We love the location as it is easy for us to get to and once we are there it is a great place on the island. We like to fish so it is easy to get to the bay and we can still hit all of our favorite restaurants and shops. The Island always has entertainment available. We have enjoyed meeting and having fun with other people in Diamond Beach. Everyone is very friendly.

What makes this condo unique

There is no other resort like this on the Island. It is a great place for the family to have fun together. The views when sitting on the porch are priceless and no mosquitos on the fifth floor!!!

Beautiful pool and lazy river. Easy access to the beach. Friendly staff. Will we come back? yes!!!

  • 4 of 5

Our time at Diamond Beach condominiums was a lot of fun. We loved the pool and Lazy River. We were disappointed the bar was closed by the Lazy River.

Condo #509 was fine. However, when you rent this particular condo, do not expect communication with the landlord. There is absolutely no flexibility for early check-in or late check out. We got to Galveston 2 hours early

And had to wait until EXACTLY 4:00 even though the room was ready. When paying $504 a night, after all the fees are added in, you would think there would be some flexibility when checking in and checking out. No exceptions! I don't know if all landlords are the same when it comes to checking in and out.

Hotels are much more accommodating.

Owner's Response: Cathy I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Diamond Beach. I apologize for not being more flexible with the check-in and check-out times however this time of year is extremely busy and in your case I had people checking out/in on the days you were checking in/out. I must allow time for the cleaning crews to get the condo ready. I hope you will stay at Diamond Beach again.

Beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

Great condo, perfect location. We had 4 adults and 3 kids and they all had a blast. The pool was awesome and the condo was fully equipped for families that want to cook in. 10 minutes from the pleasure pier. The owner Michael was very responsive, we'd recommend this and will be back again!

Girls Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I came down to Galveston for some much needed relaxation and this resort was amazing! Michael, the owner, was so easy to communicate with and the condo looks exactly like the pictures, if not better. As we walked through the condo door, we were immediately struck by the gorgeous pool and sea views. Waking up to that each morning was one of the best parts of our trip. The fitness room, hot tub, swim up bar, and direct beach access were the cherries on top. I completely recommend this condo for anyone looking to have a fabulous time in Galveston!

Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

The unit was exactly as advertised and the owners were so easy to work with. Everything was clean and the kitchen was well-supplied. The views of the gulf and the property were excellent; it was very relaxing just to sit (and nap) on the large patio. There was even a nice supply of pool and beach gear available for use.

We rented 2 units for a family reunion and it was the perfect place for us to stay. There were plenty of options to keep everybody busy with the cascading pool, lazy river, water slide, beach, game room, and fitness center. We hardly left the property in 4 days. The Diamond Beach staff was very courteous and professional; they accommodated every request we made. The facilities and grounds were well maintained and security was pretty tight. We will definitely stay here again.

Pro-tip: This is a big complex with long hallways and there is a lot of walking required. It took us a half day before we realized there is an elevator on the east end of the building. We unloaded our cars at the main entrance on the west end which was pretty busy on a Friday afternoon. It would have been easier to pull into the garage and park near the east elevator to unload.
