Overview

About the property

3 bedroom,2 bathroom ,kitchen, living room and large balcony and pool side.

You will love our newly decorated Condo that was accomplished Fall 2014 on the second floor! It is fully furnished for comfort, ease of use, amazingly relaxful and with a beautiful view. No fuss here and such a large balcony (360 sq. ft.) for the whole family to enjoy! As owners of this Condo, our goal is to provide a stress free vacation spot that has home amenities for you and your family to enjoy! Our Condo is located just a short walk to the Concierge desk, beautiful indoor heated pool, computer room and young children's playroom. Stop by the Concierge desk, and check out the pool table cues or shuffle board pucks and head to the game room. Or, reserve the large screen theater, with deep lounge type seating for your personal use. And, being on the second floor means you are closest to the outdoor three spill over pools, including the young kid’s shallow end, and long lazy river. The many chairs, loungers, and umbrellas will provide a day of fun at the pool! You can take your own soft drinks and snacks with you! Let those worries just fade away!

We have taken great care to provide a Condo that has everything you will need to enjoy your vacation. Because, really now, that's the whole point, isn't it? Less stress means more fun! We selected the following paints to enhance our condo with the beauty of the pool and splendor of nature that is just outside the huge glass windows. Owl Gray for the master bedroom and bathroom, Nantucket Blue in the hallway, kitchen and living room and Urban Putty in the two guest bedrooms and bathroom. Also selected art work and nautical items to connect your senses with the beach and water environment! The Kitchen is fully equipped for cooking, eating, and cleaning needs, and includes all usual appliances that you should need, including a 2 door stainless refrigerator that dispenses ice and water, a microwave, dishwasher, glass stove top, oven and large single bowl sink. The large, granite top island seats 4. The living room offers two comfortable leather recliner chairs, two small leather couches that open to twin beds, a large green sofa to lounge on, coffee table, large ceiling fan, tower lamp, large Visio TV, Bluetooth wireless speaker, WiFi and a whimsical 3D fish tank mural on the wall.

The master bedroom has a king size bed with side tables and lamps on each side, a full dresser and a ceiling fan. The master bath has a huge walk in shower, with both wall and ceiling shower heads. Lots of storage for personal items underneath the two sink vanity in the master bath. The first guest room contains a full over full set of bunk beds, dresser, bedside table and closets for storage and hanging clothes. The second guestroom contains a single queen sized bed, bedside table, ceiling fan, closet for hanging clothes and storage. There is a large full bathroom, with shower/tub combination between those bedrooms and contains a full size stackable washer and dryer. And, don't forget those living room sofas that makes into twin beds!

The extra-large balcony is a favorite, and includes a large wooden table with 8 chairs, 2 Adirondack lounge chairs, wooden settee and table for that early morning or late afternoon relaxation! All of the second floor balconies are huge compared to higher floors. Not all second floor balconies are full width, but ours is!

The Beautiful view from our Condo, both day and night, is waiting on you for fun in the Sun! So, be our guest as you will love Diamond Beach and create memories that will last forever! As the song lyrics go 'Don't Worry, Be Happy!'

1st time "condo'ers"

  • 5 of 5

Our family has grown so much over the years and we finally had to realize instead of getting three hotel rooms or suites, that we would try a condo. Loved it. The fact that we could all be together in one space but still not be in each other's "space" was great. So, basically the condo was great. But for a little constructive criticism. We had to consider a 3 month old child as an occupant by "HOA rules." I think the condo rules should be reviewed. A child that fits in a portable baby sling to sleep in should not be considered a "whole" occupant. I had to leave one of my other grandchildren at home after I read the fine print. That may be the rules everywhere with condos and this may come with my learning experience. But truly, she ate no food, used no bed, or pool toys and such. Also, realistically, 4 more people, children or adults could be in that space comfortably. After all, it was a vacation. Not permanent living facilities. If a family chooses to be cramped for a few days of vacation, that should be their choice. It can be done. I know, I raised 5 kids in a 3/1 bath 1200 square foot home. I could have invited my other two grandkids and we still would have had a great time. So.....if that could be looked at and adjusted based on age or something, that would be great. Mainly, the infants. But the occupancy rate could be raised. And I realize this is a condo but.......if you don't ask or voice your concerns, how will it ever get fixed, right? My only other complaint was the clear tubes in the lazy river. Oh my, I saw things that I cannot "unsee." LOL I know this is trivial but after I saw some other woman's body parts, I got out of my tube immediately and just floated in the water. Actually everybody's parts were showing but some were a little more "revealing" than others. Things others should not see. Certainly not children or young teenagers that were certainly taking it all in. LOL Overall, it was a great experience and we really enjoyed it. Thanks for the 1st time experience being one we really really enjoyed.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at condo 209 was absolutely amazing. It was the perfect size for our family of six. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals. It has the best view of the pool area & all the amenities were easily accessible. We loved the ability to rent out the theater on a rainy day there in Galveston. The beach was easy to access and all the local stops, shops, & restraints were within a couple miles of the condo. This is a great place to stay and I highly recommend it!

Wonderful family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Diamond beach condo 209 was excellent. My husband and I brought our 1 and 3 year old along with both sets of our parents. Everyone had an excellent time. The condo and Diamond beach resort was clean. The beautiful pool had a shallow area perfect for our young children and relaxing lazy river for the adults. Right down the hall from our condo was a toddler playroom which was perfect for keeping our little a one entertained indoors. The owners were quick to respond to any questions or concerned. They were kind enough to let us check in early. We would definitely book with them again. The only negative feedback would be the beach in front of the condo. The beach is pretty easy to get to however not what was hoped for. We easily packed up the car and drove a couple minutes down the road and enjoyed that beach front much more. Diamond beach resort would still be our choice when we go back to Galveston, the condo and pool make up for the beach! It was also close to plenty of places to eat, grocery stores, and downtown Galveston.

Owner's Response: Thank you Amber for your review, and so glad that all turned out good for you and your family at our Condo and the Resort! Not having beach access in the front of the resort and having to walk a little way outside the property going west is not ideal but doable none the less. So glad you ventured out in your car though to the wonderful beaches that Galveston has to offer and that has been under renovation for 2.5 years now. Really a plus for Galveston and the vacationers! :) Would love to have you back in the future and thank you again for staying at our Condo. Kind regards, Caroline Hart
