About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Large Terrace with Amazing Views - Sleeps 8

As you sit on the large terrace of Pelican Watch, you look up to see the flocks of pelicans overhead and look out beyond the lush gardens and tiered pool to see the Gulf of Mexico. When we purchased Unit 205 in Diamond Beach's premier five-star resort, we wanted to add our touches with both you and our family in mind. We have furnished it with everything we want and believe it will be everything you want as well.

The living room of this amazing unit features a large flat-screen TV with cable service, including Netflix streaming, DVD player and a bluetooth speaker to connect your personal device. WiFi is also provided. The open plan provides a dining table to seat 6-8 for eating or those great family games. The adjoining kitchen with it's stainless steel and granite is well equipped with cooking conveniences plus a Keurig coffeemaker and a Nespresso machine. We've even provided you with an assortment of spices.

If outdoor cooking is your pleasure, as it is mine, your terrace is equipped with an electric grill. Poolside grills are also provided.

At the end of your busy day you will find rest in the three well-furnished bedrooms. The master bedroom has a king sized bed and a bathroom en suite with Jacuzzi tub and separate shower with dual heads for a relaxing rain shower experience. The second bedroom has twin beds, and the third bedroom a queen. All bedrooms are equipped with ceiling fans, TVs and luxury bedding The second bath has a combination tub/shower with an extra-deep tub for a long, soothing soak.

Just down the hall from Pelican Watch is Diamond Beach's Concierge desk, beautiful indoor heated pool, children's playroom and computer center. Also for your enjoyment is a game room with pool table, pin ball machines, video games, shuffleboard and more; a 35-seat movie theatre and state-of-the-art workout center overlooking the Gulf. Pelican Watch is not only convenient to all the indoor amenities, it provides easy access to the resort's beach entrance and to the outdoor pool complex which offers three spill-over pools, hot tubs, water slide, lazy river and swim-up bar. Don't miss the panoramic view of the sunsets from the outdoor terrace off the third floor Bar None.

With so much to do at Diamond Beach, you probably won't want to leave, but in case you do, Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn and the Pleasure Pier are only minutes away. Galveston also boasts many great restaurants and, of course, shopping on The Strand. For you golfers, Moody Gardens offers an excellent course for you to try.

Don't miss spending your vacation in this unit we like to call the "Sweet Spot" in this resort.

About Linda Carey

After retiring from our careers of Police Officer and Commercial Property Manager in Dallas,, we bought a beachfront house in Galveston which we named Dolphin View. Deciding to make life easier and to have more amenities, we sold the house and purchased a condominium in this beautiful Diamond Beach Resort. We now not only have the beachfront, we have all the other amazing advantages of this property.

Linda Carey purchased this condo in 2015

Why Linda Carey chose Gulf Coast

We chose this property after looking at many and Diamond Beach is not only the premier five star resort with unequalled amenities in Galveston, it has amazing views and beach access. It is close enough to everything without being in a congested area and in walking distance to the best hamburger in Texas - "Cafe Michael Burger"!!

What makes this condo unique

The second floor has extra-deep terraces with amazing views not only of the Gulf but of the gardens and pool area. We love an outside area and this unit has the perfect "sweet spot".

Great Location, View, Furnishings and more

  • 5 of 5

We all loved your vacation home. Six adults stayed here for 6 days.....which was not long enough. There was plenty of room and things to do at the Diamond Beach resort that we rarely left the property. The lazy river was our favorite. I would highly recommend to anyone this is the unit to stay in. Thank you for allowing us to have such a great vacation in your lovely condo.

The condo we stayed in was condo 205. It was beautiful and had everything you would ever need. I chose this particular condo after reading all the previous reviews and so glad I did. All the amenities were great including the gym, lazy river, hot tub and swim up bar. The men really enjoyed the outdoor televisions due to all the college football games. We had a great three night stay and didn't want to leave!! We will be back. I've told so many friends and family about this new vacation spot we found and especially about condo 205!!
