Diamond beach is a marvelous resort style property located on the beach at the west end of the Galveston sea wall.

Enjoy eye-popping views of the gulf of mexico from the balcony of this great unit on the sixth floor. The sophisticated, yet comfortable, ambience welcomes you to unwind and relax during your time in Galveston. Whether you are staying for two days or two weeks or more, you will find this to be a great home away from home.

There are three bedrooms that can accommodate up to a group of six. The largest room has a king size bed, a secondary room has a queen size bed and the third room has a pull out trundle bed, that opens into two twins or a king. All bedrooms have smart tv's and internet connectivity. The main space has open living, dining and kitchen areas. The living area has ample and comfortable seating surrounding the fireplace (one of the few rentals that has a fireplace) which offers warmth to winter visitors and a peaceful, restful glow in the summer. The separate dining area, with its large table with chairs and a built in covered banquette, invites casual dining, a place to play board and card games or dim the lighting and have a romantic meal. The kitchen area is fully equipped with the necessities to prepare meals or just have a cup of coffee made from the keurig coffee maker.

So, you relax, read, and watch the pelicans fly by and find its time to venture out and see what amenities diamond beach has to offer. Outdoor amenities include wonderful swimming pools that cascade into a lower splash area, 750 feet of lazy river with a fun water slide that lets you drop into the lazy river. There is also a sand volley ball area, fire pit and white sandy play area on the property. For privacy, cabanas are available for a small fee. Grilling areas around the pools are also available for guest use. There is also a seasonal swim-up bar and small café area.

Not an outdoor person? Try the fitness center next to the indoor heated pool; play in the game room with pool table, foosball, a dedicated computer gaming area, and other hand ball games; for the ultimate in relaxation and pampering stop by the spa; watch a movie in the stadium seating movie theater available for private viewings of movies(which are available for checkout at the front desk or bring your own), sporting events or gaming; or join friends for cocktails in the bar none lounge.

Why Diana chose Gulf Coast

This is one of the only units that can be rented that has a fireplace. Lots of magic moments relaxing in the main area, listening to the waves and watching the flames dance in the fireplace. You can vent in heat or leave it off and just enjoy the ambiance to the glow. Ceiling fans in all the bedrooms and in the main living room.

What makes this condo unique

Quality furnishings. Separate dining area with large table for family meals or just playing card or board games.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great property! Great experience!

  • 4 of 5

The property overall was great! The only reason we couldn't give it 5 stars was due to the fact that it was a chore to get out onto the balcony as the sliding door did not move freely at all. It took both hands and all the strength we could muster to open and close. At times, it took two people to accomplish this. However, that being said, we would definitely stay there again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your rating. Just so you know we had ordered the parts to fix the door. The door has now been repaired and works perfectly. Sorry the door made the difference in your overall rating.

Excellent Condo for a Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The condo had everything we needed for our weekend stay and we were pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness, amenities, and how it was decorated. The staff, the pool, and the lazy river were outstanding outside amenities that made our stay even more enjoyable. Thanks for a GREAT family weekend.
