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.

Beautiful view, great location

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to Galveston was a very good experience. The condo had a large balcony overlooking the ocean and pool. The balcony was large enough for our grandchildren to play and was comfortably furnished. It was definitely our favorite place to hang out with drinks or morning coffee. The condo complex was a short drive or walk to all that we wanted or needed. Many activities were available. We especially enjoyed the pool and movie room. The pool had many shallow areas which were good for children. All in all it was an enjoyable vacation, and we hope to return in the future.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo had everything we could want. The beds were comfortable and we had 6 teenagers with us for a total of 8! The sitting areas on the patio, by the pool, and the three separate bedrooms gave everyone their space. It was nice that the game room was right down the hall and the movie theatre was really nice and made watching a movie on vacation feel like a treat! The beach access was easy and nice but after the first day everyone hung out in the luxurious pools and hot tub! I myself enjoyed a massage in the chocolate spa! Out teenagers did not get on the waterslide but did enjoy the lazy river. We reserved a grill and had a lovely day out by the pool!! This place is a true diamond and we will be back!!

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.
