Overview

About the property

Fully Equipped 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Beach Condo Sleeps 8

Imagine your first morning of vacation. How that first sip of vacation-day coffee will taste so much roastier as you watch the sun rise over the ocean from your comfy rocking chair on the oversized, sheltered patio.

Imagine how relieved you'll feel to be away from hectic workaday schedules. How happy you will feel to be at home, on the beach.

As the caffeine trickles through your system, you begin to face your most difficult decision of the day: How to spend the morning?

Will you stroll down the beach (just 5 steps out of the south gate)? Saunter up the seawall (2 steps out the east gate)? Venture to the diversions and sights Galveston has to offer (all a short walk or drive away)? Stay within the property to enjoy the many exclusive Diamond Beach resort amenities?

(Including the largest outdoor pool on the island, a water slide, the luxurious lazy river with it's seasonal swim-up bar, an indoor pool, high end fitness room with sweeping ocean views, a private theater, teen game room, kids play room, on-site bar, on-site spa, and more...)

But if the coffee isn't doing its job, and this all sounds like far too much effort, feel free to cozy up with a good book on the private patio, or choose to 'meditate' in the comfy living room seating, with its million-dollar views from the floor-to-ceiling windows, and a 55'' flatscreen television...

Unit 204 has a maximum total occupancy of 8, with multiple options for comfy sleeping arrangements.

The master suite includes a King bed, jacuzzi tub, separate rainfall shower and a flat screen TV.

Two additional bedrooms include a queen bed, and a single-over-double bunkbed with an extra twin trundle.

Should you prefer to spread out, there is also a sleeper sofa in the living room, along with the TV, DVD, several comfortable chairs, and a selection of books and games.

All bedrooms have flat screen TVs, two with DVD players, with cable and wifi internet throughout the home.

The second bathroom includes a full tub/shower and a Duet washer and dryer.

The oversized patio has a dining table, those comfy rockers and its own electric grill; all overlooking the quiet side of the pool, hibiscus bushes, swaying palm trees and the Gulf of Mexico.

The kitchen includes a dining area (not available in many Diamond Beach homes), with seating for 8+ at the expandable table, full-sized appliances, and is well-stocked with dishes and cookware.

Need more room for your family or reunion? Our condo 203 is right next door, and is also a 3-bedroom that sleeps up to 8. See the listing at VRBO Listing #674015. Contact us for more information.

Staying in this comfortable, beachy, well-stocked, on-the-beach condo in this beautiful resort complex will ensure that you spend less time worrying about logistics, and more time enjoying the details of your stay at the beach.

Details like the Keurig coffeemaker, so that first cup of coffee will be just a little bit easier to make.

About Laurel Sukel, Gayle & Helen King

We are Laurel Sukel, Gayle and Helen King. We are mostly retired. We love the beach and all the great amenities Diamond Beach has to offer.

Laurel Sukel, Gayle & Helen King purchased this condo in 2013

Why Laurel Sukel, Gayle & Helen King chose Gulf Coast

We (the Kings) bought this condo in February 2013 as a place to get together with family and friends on weekends. We chose DB because of the setting close to the beach, the fabulous amenities for kids of all ages, and the luxury feel. It is close to Galveston’s many attractions, but located away from most of the traffic and noise. We loved it so much, we found we were spending more time at Diamond Beach than at our home. So we sold our home in 2014 and bought a bigger unit here as our permanent residence. We are offering unit 204 for rental so you can have the same wonderful experience. We are on the property most of the time, available to answer any questions you have, and help you make the most out of your stay. Laurel, our sister, also loves the place, and has made this her home, too.

What makes this condo unique

The palm trees, the beautiful pool, the grill on our large patio, the sounds of surf and seagulls and the pelicans flying overhead continue to charm us. The sky and water are different everyday, with unique sunrises and sunsets, all types of vessels sailing by as well as the occasional dolphin. Walking on the beach each morning and floating around the lazy river are our special pleasures. When the weather is bad, we retreat to the indoor heated pool. Diamond Beach has a movie theatre we can reserve, a game room with free pinball, pool, foosball, and shuffleboard, as well as a WII room. The concierge can supply DVDs and games. There’s a playroom for toddlers, a state-of-the art fitness center with incredible views, a bar, a beach volleyball court, and lots of common areas for all kinds of activities. To say nothing of the longest swimming pool in Texas with depths ranging from 2 inches to 5 feet.

Wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the easy and friendly check-in; the cleanliness of the condo; and the thought that went into providing everything a renter might need - from toilet paper and shampoo to a sewing kit and first aid to pool and beach toys! I will definitely rent this unit for future Galveston trips. Thank you

Clean, beach-themed condo. Fully furnished and stocked with everything needed.

  • 5 of 5

4 adults and 3 children (bdays celebrated while there, ages 2, 7, & 13). All of us had a wonderful time. The unit was perfect for our group and we hope to make it back again someday per children's request. Kids had a blast at Schlitterbahn and Moody Gardens, though, the Aquarium pyramid is under renovation until May so we missed out on that. We spent time in the arcade on the property which could use some game maintenance. Pinball machines had stuck paddles. Fitness room is world class. Indoor is diamond-shaped and a little small but only when busy. Outdoor pool and lazy river very nice. Zero-depth entry for toddler was a plus as well as the depth gradients as you work your way up. Slide was closed for off-season as well as the swim-up bar. Slide would have been fun but bar was not missed. Quick and easy access to the beach from resort. Seawall Blvd gets pretty busy and crowded, but the resort is nicely located just past all the noise. We made a couple of trips to the grocery store, had a light dinner across the street at the Seahorse Grill on the first day. Walked down to Jimmy's on the Pier our last night and had dinner and walked the pier. Next time, we would like to try fishing on the Pier. It was bustling with very friendly fisherfolk and it was fun to see their catches. We would also like to head down to the wharf next time to check out the sights and perhaps hit up Pleasure Pier. The owners have a very comprehensive manual in the unit packed full of helpful information which we consulted several times. My dad spent a good hour at the dining table just reading about the different beach life found in the manual. Kids made use of a couple of the swim noodles and the toddler loved the mini library in the unit. The shower light in the master bath did not work, but we found there was plenty of light from the bathroom to shower in there. As we make our drive back to our colder climate, we reflect on all the fun we had in Galveston. Our new 7-yr old had tears in the back of the van as we said goodbye to the Gulf. He said through his tears, "I don't want to leave." That pretty much sums up our trip.

Owner's Response: We’re so glad you had a fun stay! It sounds like your family made some wonderful memories--which is what we love. We’re sorry about the light in the bathroom; we have now fixed it. We hope you can come back sometime in the summer when the slide is open. There are so many things to do in Galveston, there’s not time to do them all in one trip!

Everything we needed was in this condo, it was enjoyable, quaint, and we felt right at home.

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts know what they are doing, the place was tastefully furnished and had practical things like beach chairs and a fan to make us feel comfortable, I liked that games, CD movies and books were available, I really liked the Keurig coffee maker and supplies, and just generally we did not have to look far to find what we needed. I appreciated the flexibility with the parking, which was nice and not a problem b/c not crowded.

This condo, 204, was super. Very comfortable for all that occupied. Extremely clean. Amenities; lazy river, theater room, game room, indoor and outdoor pools and supporting staff outstanding . Pictures do not serve this location justice. Much better than picture show.

Diamond Beach is on the quiet side of Galveston, steps from the beach. But it’s an easy drive to Galveston’s multitude of activities for every age group. Many people opt to spend all their time at the resort--it’s so pleasant and there’s so much to do here!
