Why Diana chose Galveston

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

Beautiful Sophisticated Condo with Spectacular View

  • 5 of 5

If you appreciate sophisticated high-end custom decor with spectacular views, this is it! Diamond Beach condos is a great place to get away and enjoy, both the condo amenities and in particular this unit. I am very particular of the decor, furnishing and views from the homes I stay in. This unit has it all and by far the best I have ever stayed in. Even the dishes, flatware and pots/pans were high-end! Thank you for paying attention to quality furnishings!

Diamond Beach

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our visit. The Diamond Beach is exactly how I like to do the beach. The condo was very accommodating and very nice. The kids loved the pools and of course I did too. It was fun! Looking forward to our next visit!

This place has potential, but fell short in the customer service and property management department.

  • 2 of 5

The condo was beautiful. The walk to the beach is not: you must stumble through a trash pile to get to the part of the beach that says no swimming. There is no maintenance of a beach access, so if that is important to you do not stay here. Also, the slide hours and days on the property are unreliable. My kids got to slide only one day of our four days there. I would check the slide policy before you go. The game room is a hassle: go to front desk for Foosballs, air hockey, and pool supplies, and the NBA pinball machine is broken. None of the bars were open inside or out. Again, this place has potential, but the amenities are not up to par. Oh, and my husband, who paid for the trip, was not allowed to check in since I made reservation, so he and my father had to wait for my mom and I to get there from the Tanger outlet...so our shopping trip was cut short too! One last rant, the garage parking spaces are a joke too...allow 5 min to park if you do not have a tiny smart car! The owner was nice and condo was pretty...just uncomfortable without AC and my mom had to stay there all day for them to get the AC fixed.

Owner's Response: We are terribly sorry you had such a bad experience. The State maintains the beach so you may want to complain to them. You also could have reached out about your husband and father waiting and I would have let the front desk know to let them in so you would not be inconvenienced on your shopping trip. I knew nothing about the slide not working which I would have gladly checked for you. The AC went out because the compressor was struck by lightning in the evening storm. Although we repaired as quickly as possible sometimes it's not good enough. No one had to remain at the condo while the AC was being repaired, it was your choice to have your mother remain rather than you or your husband. And as for the Bars not being open I hope that was not the main reason for your visit. Please try Diamond Beach again. Maybe you'll have better luck with a different unit. The reason the teen room still has items to play with is because they need to be checked out and returned otherwise kids seem to walk off with stuff and parents don't seem to take the time to make sure items are left where they should be, in the activity room.

Family Trip- 7 and 5 Year Old

  • 5 of 5

Could not have picked a better place to stay in Galveston for my family. The swimming pool was amazing with multiple levels with the lowest level shallow enough for my kids to walk the entire length, which they loved. Access to a beach is just a short walk off the property and away from some of the busier areas in Galveston that we also enjoyed. The condo was very nice with TV's in each room and everything that you would need to cook a simple meal instead of going out for every meal. When we come back to Galveston we will be looking this exact same room.
