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. Free WIFI.
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 Galveston Island
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.

Beautiful property with lots of activities for kids and adults.
Gayle’s condo has everything: beautiful furnishings, books, games, TV, cable and anything you could need in the kitchen.
Excellent condo, several amenities...great overall stay and very easy to check in and out.
From the get-go, the owners were fantastic regarding communication and accommodations. I booked this as a surprise weekend for my wife and we absolutely loved it. Beds were very comfortable. Master bathroom was a work of art with a great bath tub and huge shower with dual shower heads. Kitchen appliances were great and modernized. Internet was fast. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone...you will be very happy with your stay.
Absolutely beautiful condo and grounds! Going back in March!
Delighted you enjoyed your stay. And delighted you’ll be staying with us again!
Fantastic accomodation for family with small children
We had a quick winter getaway while the kids were out of school. The indoor pool, jungle room and game room were ideal for entertainment when it was too chilly for a beach walk. The condo itself is beautifully appointed and has a pack n play. We brought our own but forgot a booster for our toddler. No problem! There was one in the queen bedroom closet! We will definitely be back!
Pure luxury inside and out!
Our family (5 adults and one 1.5 yr old) stayed during the second week of September 2017. This was right after a hurricane...and there was very little noticeable damage. The property was well cared for (immaculate). The amenities at the property were fantastic. We made use of the game room, toddler play room, lazy river (everyones favorite), pools, and hot tubs. Parking was easy and secure. Its hard to describe the beauty of the actual resort grounds and the beach you are overlooking. Its worth what you pay.
The unit was perfect, 3 bed, 2 baths. It was clean and everything was provided. There were fresh sheets, fresh towels..all the spices and cooking utensils you would ever need. The ice maker produces a LOT of ice each day for drinks. The kitchen is fantastic with a breakfast bar and a separate dining table for 8. Seating in the living room is comfortable and spacious. If you are inside, there is a TV, netflix, internet, DVDs. We spend most of our time outside by the pool and the lazy river. The unit also had patio furniture for 6 and water toys, boogie boards, etc, in an outside storage unit on the patio. The deck has a nice view of the pool and a view of the ocean, although a higher floor would provide a better view of the beach. There were some mosquitos..but this varies by time of year and wind conditions.
The best part of all was the host. I don't think I have ever had such an extensive walk through and explanation of a resort. Gayle is friendly, warm, and very thorough in explaining everything. There is even a book in the unit that provides ANY additional information you might need, including surrounding restaurants. Also, with the weather and conditions surrounding the hurricane, I corresponded frequently with Gayle about any issues. Gayle answers very quickly.
I will definitely rent the exact same unit the next time I return to Galveston. ITs the ONLY place to stay in Galveston.
Mike and Family.
This place has everything!
This place is FULLY stocked with anything you could think of. Nice resort and even nicer condo. It really felt like home!
Diamond Beach is on the quiet side of Galveston, steps from the beach. But it’s an easy drive to Galveston’s multitude of restaurants, activities and festivals 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!
