About Linda

My husband and I are in the medical profession in Houston Texas. We come to Galveston to relax and have fun with the kids and fish.

Linda purchased this condo in 2010

Why Linda chose Texas Gulf Coast

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family has been meeting for Thanksgiving weekend for the past 17 years. We come from TX and LA to spend 5 days in 4 condos. We think this year at Diamond Beach was one of the best. We are planning to come again. Thanks to owners of the condos for making it so pleasant and enjoyable for us all.

Fabulous, well-maintained and had all the comforts of home.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the fact we had everything we needed there on site and never had to leave. The master bedroom's mattress was too hard and that was the only negative during our stay. We will defintely come back.

Impressive!

  • 4 of 5

We weren't sure what to expect but it was Better than expected! The property is well maintained. These condo's are individually owned so any thing you need, you need to communicate with the owner directly. There are many activities (pool, lazy river, game room, movie theater). We also liked the location-close to town & easy access to the beach. The only thing I didn't like was that the 'no smoking' policy wasn't enforced around the public areas (pool, etc.). No Smoking signs were posted around the pool but many guests were smoking. Our family would stay here again.
