About the Property
3 Bedroom/2 Bathroom Penthouse With Ocean View
All of the condos at Diamond Beach have great views of the water but this is one of the few condos that has a view of the bay and the ocean. Starting at the front door, you have a wonderful view of the bay. As you step inside the penthouse, you will be greeted by floor-to-ceiling windows with spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico. When you open the sliding glass doors, you will step onto your private oversized balcony with a 180 degree view of the bay and the gorgeous Gulf waters. The balcony is a great place to sip a cup of coffee in the morning before everyone wakes up or have a nice tropical drink in the evening with your family and friends.
The master bedroom in the penthouse is one of the few units that has floor-to-ceiling windows with a spectacular view of the Gulf. The bedroom is an oasis for rest and relaxation, starting with its chandelier, deluxe king- size bed, and 55-inch flat screen TV (my husband’s decorating input) with Blu-ray player. The bathroom contains a wonderful rain-shower and an oversized tub. The bathroom also has his and her sinks.
The 2nd bedroom has a deluxe queen size bed, a custom headboard, a 55 inch-flat screen TV (again my husband’s decorating input) with Blu-ray player.
The 3rd bedroom has a deluxe king size bed, a custom headboard, and a large flat screen TV with Blu-ray player. The 2nd bath is across from the two guest bedrooms. The penthouse is tiled with stone floor and a washer/dryer.
The penthouse comes with a fully equipped kitchen and has granite counter tops. You’ll have 180 degree views of the ocean as you prepare waffles for breakfast or eat your favorite take-out foods from the large selection of restaurants within a short distance of Diamond Beach. The dining table seats 6 and the counter-stools sit 3, which is where the kids like to sit.
The living room has fantastic views of the ocean, a queen-sleeper sofa, and a 60-inch flat screen smart TV (you’ll never guess who picked out the TV). The condo sleeps up to 8 people. In case you have a large gathering, this condo is next to my parents' penthouse Unit 5PH3 (www.vrbo.com/905494), which sleeps an additional 6 people. We also have another 2 bedroom condo on the 3rd floor, Unit 314 (www.vrbo.com/383009), which sleeps 6.
Diamond Beach boasts of many amenities including:
Concierge: A concierge desk open 7 days a week from 7:00 am to 11:00 pm for your convenience with a staff knowledgeable regarding the island’s best attractions and restaurants.
Pools: Three pools consisting of a 750 ft. lazy river with a swim up bar and grill, a gigantic 300 ft. tiered cascading pool (which contains a kids’ pool), and Galveston’s only indoor heated pool for year-round enjoyment. The pools have plenty of lounge chairs or, if you want something more private, you can rent a cabana for the day. The kids (and adults too) will love the fantastic water slide that plunges into the lazy river. The swim up bar and grill and slide are open during the weekends, summer through Labor Day.
Bar: After a relaxing day at one of the pools or the beach, you are steps away from Bar None which offers great drinks (my favorite is the Miami Vice) and breathtaking views of the ocean in an intimate, stylish setting. You’ll appreciate the sleek, contemporary feel, perfectly complemented with a wraparound veranda for the best sunsets on Galveston Island.
Spa: The spa is currently closed.
Gym: The Look Better in Your Swimsuit Center (aka The Exercise Room). This place may inspire those of us (like me) who would prefer to have a tooth extracted instead of going to the gym to actually get on a treadmill with its spectacular vistas of the Gulf.
Game Room. Tabletop shuffleboard, foosball, pin ball machines, a billiards table, and a Wii Room for the kids and sometimes even parents get to play.
Cinema Room: If you are in the mood to go to the movies, all you need to do is step into the private theater room at Diamond Beach while you enjoy a bag of popcorn.
Kids Jungle Room: With its jungle murals, games, blocks, oversized bean bags and TV, this is the place to be for the hip toddler crowd.
Business Center: If you must work, at least you’ll have great views of the indoor pool and beach.
Beach Access: If you have time to go to the beach after doing all of the activities at Diamond Beach Resort & Spa, all you need to do is open the door on the property next to the lazy river and walk down to the beach. Diamond Beach is located just steps away from the beach. There’s no need to cross the road or jump in the car.
Diamond Beach is near everything. Just a few minutes car drive from: (i) entertainment (Moody Gardens; Miniature Golf; Schlitterbahn Waterpark; The Stand; Railroad Museum); (ii) golf courses (Moody Gardens Golf Course and Galveston Country Club), (iii) recreational activities (Seaside Bicycle Rentals; fishing for speckled trout, redfish, founder, golden croaker); bird watching (3/4 of all North American species travel through Galveston during fall and spring migration), (iv) restaurants (everything from McDonald’s to Guido’s), and (v) lots of shopping.
We are glad to share our home with you and know you will enjoy your stay here as you make great memories with your family and friends.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: My name is Maria, and I have lived in Houston for most of my life. My husband is originally from New York. We love to travel but with our busy lives it’s difficult to get away for more than a few days. Diamond Beach is the perfect getaway. It doesn’t require a plane ride or a long car drive. We can go for the day or for the week.
Why the Owner Chose Galveston, TX, USA:
We purchased a 2 bedroom condo at Diamond Beach a few years ago. We have had so much fun and have been asked by so many guests if we had another condo that we decided to buy another condo. The penthouse is spectacular and the photos do not do it justice.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Diamond Beach is a haven from our hectic lives. Whether you go with your kids, do a girls weekend, or a romantic getaway, you’ll want to come back again and again. If you live in Houston, it’s as close as a 45 minute drive. Even though you’re so close to home, you’ll feel that you’ve gone to the Caribbean for a vacation with all the amenities and tranquility.
