We enjoyed the beautiful views and sandy beaches. 06/05/2015

VRBO Bear stayed here:


Our family of four had a wonderful time in Galveston visiting this Gulf Coast historic city. Of course the VRBO Bear traveled with us and had a very relaxing vacation at the Diamond Beach condo as well, which by the way exceeded our expectations. Our accommodation was clean and tastefully decorated. The owners didn’t miss anything making sure every room had all the comforts of home. Our favorite place to hang out was the ocean-front open concept kitchen area and living room, which extended over to an extra specious balcony. Views of the ocean, palm trees and passing by pelicans were everything we needed to relax.

As much as we loved spending time in the condo, cooking, playing and enjoying the views, we enjoyed using the beautiful amenities the property had to offer. Kids loved splashing at very clean pools, floating down the lazy river and of course the water slide. One of the benefits of the location, which we found extremely positive, was unlimited access to Galveston’s sandy beaches. Between the luxurious amenities and easy access to local attractions, it’s hard to imagine there is a better place to spend a vacation in Galveston.

We appreciate the owners leaving us information about where to shop, eat and what to see. The condo is located at the very end (west end) of Seawall Boulevard. We loved slow drives along the ocean while stopping for ice cream or other treats. We enjoyed the historic district featuring beautiful architecture, but also shops and cafes. We also had a free ferry ride, a tour of a retired submarine and a battleship, and visited the aquarium at Moody Gardens. But best of all, we were so happy returning each day to our condo, which made our vacation a perfect family time!
