Stunning 2bed/2bath Beach Front Condo Diamond Beach, Galveston

Exceptional! 5/5 -
(66 traveler reviews)

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Aug 18, 2016
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.

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 the middle of fall (or until the kids turn blue).

Bar: After a relaxing day at one of the pools or the beach, you are steps away from Bar None which offers great drinks (my favorite is the Miami Vice) and breathtaking views of the ocean in an intimate, stylish setting. You’ll appreciate the sleek, contemporary feel, perfectly complemented with a wraparound veranda for the best sunsets on Galveston Island. Bar None is open during weekends.

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 the Owner

My name is Maria and I have lived in Houston for most of my life. My husband moved to Houston from New York in 1990. We purchased this property with my parents so we could have a place close to home to unwind, relax and have fun. We love to travel but with our hectic lives it’s difficult to get away for more than a few days. Diamond Beach is the perfect get away. It doesn’t require a plane ride or a long car drive. We can go for the day or for the week.

Wonderful vacation venue!

  • 5 of 5

This was the third time we stayed at Diamond Beach in Galveston. It is a beautiful place. It is well worth the money.

My families preference is the Condo owned by Maria. It is decorated in a classy, modern way. She is very easy to deal with, always friendly and

easy to reach when we had a question about the cable.

We will be back.

This property was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was in the perfect location and very nicely decorated. My husband and I were there with our three grand children and we all enjoyed it so much. Our grand kids want to go back. The pool is one of the best I've seen and we 've stayed in many resorts. The game room, private movie theater and kids club room were also used many times. The staff is helpful and the whole resort is serene and beautiful. I didn't really expect to see a condo/resort of this caliber in Galveston. Would definitely stay in this condo again!

Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous!

  • 5 of 5

When we walked in, we thought we were appearing on the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous TV show. The condo was absolutely, positively gorgeous! The view was amazing, too. The pool below the condo, lit up at night, is spectacular, and the condo itself is elegant (an understatement) and comfortable.

We especially loved the lazy river. The pool also was very pretty and the workout room was amazing and had an incredible view. It was Memorial Day weekend, but it never felt too crowded.

The building is on a narrow piece of property, but they have done very creative things to make up for it, like bringing in impressively gourmet food trucks at night to replace a restaurant. A super-nice guy runs the bar, but he is pretty much on his own, so be sure to check the hours. Service from the front desk was great.

There is not really a beach to the front of the condo. The water comes up to the seawall or at least partially covers the stones placed alongside the seawall at all times that we saw it. However, to the right of the property, there is a narrow beach.

great stay! So many amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at private houses on Galveston, at Dan Luis, and at Palisade Palms (another luxury resort on Galveston).

This was our first Diamond Beach stay. Rain decreased our beach time but it actually made this trip better!! With all the Amenities offered at this property, it was actually wonderful to have the rain force us inside. Very helpful staff, responsive and helpful property owner, bottle of chianti waiting for us upon arrival, amazing view, beautiful indoor pool and outdoor pool, great jogging/biking along seawall, kids play room, game room, beautiful work out room. We used the theatre privately to watch 3 feature films, family snuggled in bed and watched movies, watched movies in living room. The master shower at this property is ENORMOUS! Very convenient garage parking.

The beach is a very short walk from the property right at the end of seawall. We found great spots just walking a little further down the beach. It was fun for us because we saw tons of shells, etc, but others who require nice beach access in very close proximity might take issue with this. No problem at all for us, though. It actually improved our experience.

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

Diamond Beach is a hidden gem in Galveston. The resort has everything you need and want....Condo 314 was beautiful with lovely decor. We were very happy with our choice...it was clean and had everything we needed and wanted! The owner was great to work with and the price was quite reasonable compared to other condos of the same size. We will definitely return!

Location

From the Owner

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.
