Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

A Caribbean Seaside Resort conveniently located in Galveston best describes Diamond Beach Resort and Spa, which is unequivocally the preeminent resort in Galveston. Our 2 bedroom/2 bath condo is located on the third floor at Diamond Beach and sleeps 4-6 people. As you step inside our condo, you will be greeted by floor-to-ceiling windows with stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico. When you open the sliding glass doors, you will step onto your private balcony overlooking one of Diamond Beach’s pools and the gorgeous Gulf seascape. The balcony is a great place to sip a cup of coffee in the morning before everyone wakes up or have a nice glass of wine in the evening with your family and friends.

The master bedroom is an oasis for rest and relaxation with its chandelier, deluxe king size bed, handmade Italian headboard, flat screen TV and DVD player, and oversized private bath with his and her sinks and a rain shower. Once you try the rain shower, your spouse may never see you again because the rain shower feels so good. The 2nd guest bedroom has two twin size beds with the same deluxe mattress as the king size bed, custom headboards, flat screen TV and DVD player, and a tub bath adjacent to the room. The condo is tiled with stone floor throughout and has its own washer/dryer.

The condo comes with a fully equipped kitchen and has granite counter tops. You’ll have great views as you prepare pancakes for breakfast or eat your favorite take out foods from the large number of restaurants within a short distance from Diamond Beach. The large dining table seats 8 and is a great place to catch up with your family and friends while you enjoy the beautiful sunrises and sunsets over the Gulf. The living room has fantastic views of the ocean, a queen sleeper sofa, and flat screen TV and DVD player.

In case you are traveling with additional family members or friends, we also own a 3 bedroom penthouse, 5PH2, on the 5th floor which accommodates 8 people (vrbo #515542) and my parents recently purchased a 2 bedroom penthouse next door, 5PH3, which accommodates 6 people (vrbo #905494).

Diamond Beach boasts of many amenities including:

Concierge: A concierge desk open 7 days a week for your convenience with a staff knowledgeable about the island’s best attractions and restaurants.

Pools: Three pools consisting of a 750 ft. lazy river with a swim up bar and grill, a gigantic 300 ft. tiered cascading pool (which includes a kids’ pool) and Galveston’s only indoor heated pool for year-round enjoyment. The pools have plenty of lounge chairs or, if you want something more private, you can rent a cabana for the day or use one of the grills on the property. The kids (and adults too) will love the fantastic water slide plunging them into the lazy river. The swim up bar, grill and slide are open during the weekends, summer through Labor Day.

Bar: The Bars are currently closed.

Spa: The spa is currently closed.

Gym: The Look Better in Your Swimsuit Center (aka The Exercise Room). This place may inspire those of us (like me) who would prefer to have a tooth extracted instead of going to the gym to actually get on a treadmill with spectacular vistas of the Gulf.

Game Room. Tabletop shuffleboard, foosball, pin ball machines, a billiards table, and a Wii Room for the kids. Sometimes even parents get to play.

Cinema Room: If you are in the mood to go to the movies, all you need to do is step into the private theater room at Diamond Beach while you enjoy a bag of popcorn. The concierge has complimentary movies, or you may select from our private library or bring your favorite DVDs to play in the cinema room.

Kids Jungle Room: With its jungle murals, games, blocks, oversized bean bags and TV, this is the place to be for the hip toddler crowd.

Business Center: If you must work, at least you’ll have great views of the indoor pool and beach. The business center has computers for your use as well as complimentary WiFi and is open 24/7.

White Sand: Next to the lazy river, there is an area about the size of a volleyball court with imported white sand. This is perfect for small kids or a volleyball game. While it's not a beach, this area is great for making white sand castles or having fun in the sun.

Beach Access: If you have time to go to the beach after doing all of the activities at Diamond Beach Resort & Spa, all you need to do is open the door on the property next to the lazy river and walk down to the beach. Diamond Beach is located just steps away from the beach. There’s no need to cross the road or jump in the car.

Diamond Beach is near everything. Just a few minutes car drive from: (i) entertainment (Moody Gardens; Miniature Golf; Schlitterbahn Waterpark; The Strand; The Railroad Museum); (ii) golf courses (Moody Gardens Golf Course and Galveston Country Club); (iii) recreational activities (Seaside Bicycle Rentals; fishing for speckled trout, redfish, founder, golden croaker); bird watching (3/4 of all North American species travel through Galveston during fall and spring migration); (iv) restaurants (everything from McDonald’s to Guido’s); and (v) lots of shopping plus much more.

We are glad to share our home with you and know you will enjoy your stay here as you make great memories with your family and friends.

About Maria

My name is Maria and I have lived in Houston for most of my life. My husband is originally from New York. We purchased this property so we could have a place close to home to unwind, relax and have fun. We love to travel but with our busy lives it’s difficult to get away for more than a few days. Diamond Beach is the perfect getaway. It doesn’t require a plane ride or a long car drive. We can go for the day or for the week.

Maria purchased this condo in 2011

Why Maria chose Texas Gulf Coast

There are many reasons why we selected Diamond Beach but the most memorable became apparent after our first visit. I could swear our kids shoes were glued to the floor as they shouted “Mom, Mom don’t take us away! We want to play in the kids’ room and go swimming. We’ll eat our veggies if you let us stay.” After we toured the other 3 luxury properties in Galveston, they had only one question, “When are we going back to Diamond Beach?” The kids still don’t like broccoli, but they love Diamond Beach and we love going as often as we can.

What makes this condo unique

Diamond Beach is a haven from our frenzied lives. Whether you go with your kids, do a girls' weekend, or a romantic getaway, you’ll want to come back again and again. If you live in Houston, it’s as close as a 45 minute drive. Even though you’re so close to home, you’ll feel that you’ve gone to the Caribbean for a vacation with all the amenities and tranquility.

Beautiful, quiet resort

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Diamond Beach resort in this unit! The resort has a huge, luxurious pool with plenty of chairs, great scenery with palm trees and the ocean just over the wall, a free game room, and a private cinema seating up to 25-30 people. The resort was extremely quiet and the atmosphere relaxed. If there was 1 small thing we were disappointed by it was that the spa, the Bar None, the water slide, and the swim-up bar were all closed. Not sure, but that may be a seasonal thing.

Unit #314 is obviously very well cared for, and Maria checked in with us before our stay to make sure we knew all the logistics for the stay. We loved the modern décor in the unit. The patio looks out directly over the pool and has views to the east for sunrises. The master bedroom has a huge shower with a ceiling mounted sprayer...very cool! All in all this was a great stay and we got everything we desired from the vacation!

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed the great sunrises, the condo and Diamond Beach. We hope you'll come back when the slide is open during the summer.

Best Condo on Galveston Island!

  • 5 of 5

I am from the Houston area and have been to Galveston multiple times since I was a young child. Galveston never offered anything this nice in the past, at least not since the Galvez was popular back in the early 80's.

Unit 314 is the perfect size for a family of 4 and even has room for a couple more people on the pull-out couch in the living room. I appreciate the modern decor, the advanced window shades that are controlled by the push of a button, and also the Nest A/C thermostat; but most of all, it has everything we need and is in the perfect location! Not only does it overlook the beautiful main pool but is also just steps away from the beach!

One more thing I would like to mention is how we were greeted with a nice bottle of wine when we walked in and an extra bag of ice in the freezer! It's the little touches that make this unit stand out above the rest!

The room was gorgeous.

  • 4 of 5

Would have been nice if the pool was heated. With the coming of a cold spell in weather, the pool was too cold to swim in.

Facility kept clean and tidy.

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your stay. The inside pool is heated, but the outside pool, which is the biggest in Texas, would be a bit difficult to heat. We hope you'll return in warmer weather.
