Ammenities Abound

  • 5 of 5
Our recent stay was a wonderful escape from the cold Midwest . The furnishings were fun and comfortable. I especially enjoyed the artwork in the condo expressing the joys in life at the beach. The unit was clean and had all the necessary equipment to carry on a normal life. We enjoyed life on the balcony. Breakfast watching dolphins in the Gulf, reading in comfortable chairs while soaking up the sun and a glass of wine in the late afternoon.
When often had to pry ourselves away to enjoy the rest of Galveston (lol) The ammenities that are included in the rental were so much fun! We loved working out in a clean gym every day. The staff for the hotel are amazing and friendly. A special shout out for Mary who went above and beyond her duties to help us with a problem after we left the property.
The owner was the very best we have ever had. I do not know if she owns other property other than this unit, but I would rent from her any time anywhere! Her property is well maintained and super clean. The services she provided for us were extraordinary and very much appreciated. We stayed about six weeks in this unit so we had time to have a couple small issues arise (bulbs burning out & problem with a toilet- normal upkeep) She made sure these were resolved immediately and surprised us with a wifi connection shortly after we arrived. We do not know what other units are like in this building, but would rent from Linda in a heartbeat.
We did not have a chance to use many of the other attractions on this property, but we think the outdoor pools & lazy river would be a great attraction to children and adults alike. The game room looks like it would be a great place to gather on a rainy day or to excape the afternoon heat. The movie theatre looked like so much fun.
We enjoyed the Strand and Moody Gardens very much. Happy hours were a great way to enjoy many restaurants. Do save one night to go to The Grotto for dinner! It is fabulous!! Great food, atmosphere, and service! Also, try to make Sunday Brunch at the Hotel Galvez.
We were here during the winter and had enough activity to amuse us, but I bet the Spring, Summer & Fall are amazing, with more activities than hours to have fun.
One of my favorite laid-back, no cost enjoyment was to drive down the SeaWall to the other end of the island and watch the ships coming in & out of the harbour.
For nights in, I suggest driving over to Island Seafood to pick up fresh shrimp and freshly caught fish.

Walked into the perfect setting with a spectacular view of the Gulf and the grounds of the Diamond. The condo was beautifully furnished. We cooked out and had dinner at one of the cabana, which was really nice, clean and convenient. We were there in Galveston for the 10K of The Bridge Over Troubled Waters Run. Our children precipitated in. We topped the evening off in The Bar None lounge, celebrating our daughter and her husband 1st wedding anniversary. Our bartender was a jewel. Ee really enjoyed our stay here and looking forward to our next stay here.

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!

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.

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.

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 massage. 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.
