About Property Manager/Owner

Growing up in the Houston area, my childhood years were filled with memories of vacations spent in Galveston with family and friends. The Texas Gulf coast has its own unique feel unlike any other area I have visited. Crossing the causeway onto the Island is the proper gateway to relaxing, enjoying the ocean brine, delicious seafood, sun, & sand. Now that I am an adult, I share the same appreciation for the coast with my own family.

Property Manager/Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why Property Manager/Owner chose Gulf Coast

Diamond Beach is truly unique - we wanted a 5 Star resort with beach access and luxurious amentities. The beauty of the property engulfed us the first time we visited, and the extra amenities available during inclement weather or those days you can't be out in the sun can't be beat! A heated indoor pool, game room. movie theater, and Bar None right on the property are wonderful. The lazy river, beautiful tiered pools, water slide, hot tubs, and swim up bar were extras that enchanted us. Before we were owners, we rented a unit through VRBO and decided immediately that we wanted to make Diamond Beach our second home.

What makes this condo unique

One morning I was sitting on the balcony with my coffee and saw a family of dolphins playing amazingly close to the sea wall right in front of our unit. Later during my morning walk while beach combing, I stumbled upon a nest of turtle eggs (this is rare!). After enjoying the day in the lazy river with my family, I walked down from the unit and went surf fishing on the beach right by the condo. I love this property not only for the beautiful amenities and modern conveniences, but for it's unique location on the island - an easy drive to downtown Galveston, but yet on the coveted natural West Beach.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is the fourth condo we have rented at Diamond Beach and this has been the best unit we've stayed in! Furniture was in great shape, well-equipped kitchen and nice patio furniture. Will look to rent again next year!

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

My family very much enjoyed our stay at this condo. We had plenty of space and great views. The property was beautiful and well maintained. We look forward to going over the summer when its a bit warmer outside! Janet was super responsive and easy to work with during the process.

Beautiful condo in a great property!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as it appeared in the photos. Everything was spotlessly clean and well-maintained and supplied. The owner was very responsive to our questions and gave us a helpful description of the many amenities that were especially appealing for little people. The outdoor pools and the lazy river were a delight and, when the rains came, the indoor pool, playroom, and game room kept everyone occupied and happy. The beach and the seawall were just steps away from the property with easy access. We enjoyed close-by MichaelBurger Cafe (twice) and Jimmy's on the Pier for fun family meals. The condo employees were friendly and helpful and could be seen constantly cleaning and tidying to keep the property looking perfect. The only slight negatives come from the condo design - no closet in the master and no door on the master bath. Otherwise everything was all we could ask for. We will definitely recommend this condo to others and consider coming back next year.

Delightful family vacation place!

  • 5 of 5

My 3 daughters and I had a wonderful week here and would love to come back for more! The gulf view from the wall of floor-to-ceiling windows was gorgeous, and I enjoyed my morning coffee on the patio lounge chairs. The unit was clean and well-stocked, with a calming decor and comfortable furniture. The kitchen had everything we needed for making meals in, though there are also many options for eating out nearby, with specific recommendations from both the owners and the property on hand. The master suite was luxurious, with a generously-sized and nicely finished en suite bathroom. The other 2 bedrooms were smaller but with plenty of space for their purpose. All the beds had very comfortable mattresses. The towels and linens were high-quality.

The owner went out of her way on several occasions to accommodate our stay. She was very friendly and responsive to email messages and texts, which I used for questions. We didn't have any issues arise during our stay.

The amenities at Diamond Beach are top-notch. We spent hours in the pools and floating on the lazy river. We all enjoyed icey drinks from the swim-up bar on the lazy river, and the bartenders were friendly with all of our requests. All the staff on the property were friendly and attentive. We also enjoyed the beach, which is accessed out the back corner of the property, after a short walk on a path through the dunes and then down along the end of the sea wall. We also enjoyed a fully stocked work-out room with one of the best views in Galveston, as well as a game room with not only billiards and table shuffleboard, but also old-school pinball machines, and vintage arcade games, all for free play.

I'd definitely recommend Diamond Beach and this unit!

Great Vacation Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family stay was an excellent experience and I would recommend to anyone. The unit was in great shape, comfortable beds/linens, and had everything we needed. The owner was excellent to work with and very accommodating which made our stay perfect. If looking to stay at Diamond Beach, I will definitely stay at this unit each time.
