Treating the Grandkids

  • 5 of 5
Six of us (me and 5 teenagers) stayed in the condo and had a great time. The grandkids loved the place. They spent hours in the pool and on the lazy river and I spent some time in Bar None as well as the swim up bar. The entire facility was very clean, cool and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Linda - was extremely helpful in making our arrangements. Would love to return!

A TOTAL GEM!

  • 5 of 5
We decided to head down to Galveston for the weekend since it was my son's spring break. We always stay at the San Luis because with young kids, the pool is always a hit. The only downfall is that you have to pack all of your things to head across the busy highway if you want to go to the beach. With two young children, it becomes too cumbersome

So this time, I wanted a property that was on the beach. I found Linda's place and I will have to say that it was everything and more. I am usually very hesitant to stay in someone else's home, but this place was spectacular. We have been everywhere and this place offers everything with the comforts of home and it's close to Houston. There is hands down no other condo with all the amenities that this place has. My son had a bad stomach bug so we were stuck indoors mostly. There was plenty to do. There was a game room, a toddlers/infant play room, indoor swimming pool, business center, spa, and so much more. There was also a 24 hour attendant on sight that was very helpful. We felt very secure with the private garage gates and cards to enter onto the property and swimming pool area.

The condo itself had all the extra stuff that most homeowners do not usually provide. It was fully stocked of all the appliances in the kitchen and although It seems trivial, there were paper towels, trash bags, cleaning supplies, hand soap, toilet paper, etc. for us to use. There was even laundry detergent and softner!

There are 3 bedrooms. The master bedroom was comfortable and the mattress was nice and new! Our two toddlers loved the bunk beds...enough said. And there was another small guest room, perfect for another couple. There is also a beautiful outdoor patio on the balcony with a nice seating area and table w/high chairs and grill. We cooked one night and sat outside and listened to the waves as we ate our dinner. It was definitely relaxing!

We will definitely be renting from Linda again! She was very pleasant and responded to my inquiries immediately. I asked Linda if we could check out late on the day we were leaving since my son was sick the whole time. She said that we could leave as late as we wanted. That was amazing!! We were able to go to the outdoor pool area, jacuzzi and beach the last day. Our kids loved it!. They loved the lazy river and slide so much that we spent very little time on the beach!

Thank you so much Linda for sharing your home with the Palermos!!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
Home away from home. Beautiful and professionally decorated. Fully supplied with everything needed. Very comfortable. Spectacular view of ocean. Great lounging furniture on balcony. Enjoyed our breakfast on the balcony every morning along with the delicious coffee/tea provided. Games and movie room available for the kids. The pool was beautiful, large and very relaxing. Nice to be on beach. This was a very enjoyable time for myself and my children. Very close to Pleasure Pier and while you are there, can enjoy Bubba Gump restaurant. We look forward to coming back again. I highly recommend this property.

Rent and Enjoy!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first experience in renting a condo, not going to a resort. What a wonderful first experience it was! From the initial contact with the owner through leaving the unit, we have nothing but praise. The instructions on what was expected as a renter were clearly laid out and reasonable. The unit was well decorated with all the necessities, clean, and comfortable. The owner made herself available by phone for any need, although we had no needs once we found the complex.

Having an 18 month old granddaughter with us, we wanted areas of shade, and easily found it. From the morning lazy river to using the pool in the afternoon, we were always able to find an area with shade. One of our daughters who enjoys laying out, was always able to find sun. It was a win-win!!

Should we choose to return to Galveston for a similar vacation, we would not hesitate to return to this particular unit and deal with Linda. Thank you, Linda, for allowing us to enjoy your condo.

Location

From the Owner

With 3 young boys, we wanted a place that we all could enjoy, and also rent out. We had looked at differant areas for some time. Galveston is easy to get to from Houston. This condo is located on a quiet part of the island and yet only minutes from the restaurants and the seawall. It was an obvious pick for us. With the aminities at our disposal and the location, it has exceeded our expectations. We have visited lots of really nice resort type hotels around the country. This is unique and superior to most.

Activity and Interests

The Diamond beach Resort is located at the end of the seawall on the west side, before The Escapes,Pirates beach.

Amenities

From the Owner

The Diamond is the ideal place for a family or just for a nice relaxing getaway. I love sitting on the balcony in the morning drinking my coffee, looking for dolphins, or just reading my book! The balcony is my favourite place. The gym is fantastic and I like to go there. Sometimes I treat myself to the Chocolate Spa! The boys are always kept busy in summer and winter. Between the game room, the pools, slide, not to mention watching movies they pick in the delux movie theatre! Bring your own popcorn and drink. My husband spends some time in the business center on the computers or his labtop. My husband and kid are into fishing and fish off the pier closeby.
