Enjoy the beauty of a Galveston sunrise right from your very own balcony! Palisade Palms is situated directly behind the sand dunes at East Beach with full unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico. No seawall to cross, no traffic to contend with, and no unsightly views.

Located in the Trade Winds tower at beautiful Palisade Palms, TW-504 is a spacious 1,430 sq ft fully furnished oceanfront luxury condominium with 2.5 bedrooms and 2.5 Baths. This unit sleeps four adults and two children very comfortably.

Each bedroom has its own full bath, with a half-bath off of the living room. The Master BR is furnished with a queen bed, while the 2nd BR has two single beds that can be converted into a king size bed.

Why Scott and Lyn Jones chose Galveston

Palisade Palms was the first new condominium development on Galveston Island in twenty years, and offered unparalleled quality, spaciousness, and amenities compared to existing condominiums on the island. And best of all, it is oceanfront property, family friendly with no crowds or busy streets to contend with.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the quiet beauty of the sunrises, when Dolphins are often spotted offshore , as well as the stunning views of the Gulf from our balcony. We also love the fact that our uncrowded beach is easily accessible, where we can set up for a full day of enjoyment of sand, surf, and a wide variety of bird life and sea life. We often take long, romantic walks on the beach at sunset, enjoying the sights and sounds that are unique to the beach environment. Our children love to play on the beach, flying kites and building sand castles, boogie-boarding and throwing the frisbee. When they have had enough of the sand, they love to spend countless hours in the pool.

My stay at TW-504

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay at this condo. It was beautiful. Most of the really nice restaurants I go to are near this condo.

The view of the Gulf was fantastic. I particularly liked looking at the ships heading into the Houston Ship Channel.

We all really loved this condo and everything about Palisade Palms!

  • 5 of 5

There is a great view of the Gulf Of Mexico from every room. It is nicely decorated and well maintained and gives you the overall feeling that you are staying in a really nice place.

The Palisade Palms staff is very helpful and friendly. The pool area is great and they put in a lot of effort to keep it looking just right.

My family and I completely enjoyed our time here and will definitely be coming back.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The condo is just far enough away from the noise and bustle of Seawall Blvd, yet close enough to access all the activities and restaurants Galveston has to offer. Everything was spotless and supplied for us, even beach toys and chairs. The only negative is the beds were too soft for our liking, which of course is a personal preference. We would definitely stay here again.

Amazing Week at Palisade Palms

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Palisade Palms! We loved the beach, pool, hot tubs, game room and spent time all over Galveston island. Because East Beach is near our home in Houston, we had family and friends show up during the week. My husband's 40th birthday week was a huge success. The condo was the perfect size for our family of 4 to have together time and enough space. We ate every meal on the patio at the large table and watched the sun rise as well as full moon light up the ocean below. Highly recommend this place to others as well as we will be back.

Perfect setting for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I brought my parents (who both turned 90 this year) for a few days at the beach. The condo was perfect for our needs. Plenty of space, fully stocked with necessaries. We spent hours on the balcony, watching the waves roll in. Access to the beach is the best on the island. There is a small den off the kitchen with a fold out couch. My grandaughter stayed with us the last night, so this came in handy. The buiding is immaculate and the people running it do a great job.
