STUNNING 2BED/2BATH BEACH FRONT CONDO DIAMOND BEACH, GALVESTON

Galveston Condo Rental Photos and Description

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: Solaris Spa is now open. Pamper yourself with a massage or one of the many other cutting edge treatment techniques that provide five star relaxation and wellness.

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.

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.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

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.

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.

BEST PLACE TO STAY ON GALVESTON ISLAND!

  • 5 of 5
Diamond beach condos have so much to offer we had to drag ourselves away to Galveston's other attractions. The Lazy River is so good for spending the day for all age groups. So much better than just a pool. The sea and beach are not great especially as when we were there there was a huge influx of seaweed. So glad we weren't in any other complex with lesser pool facilities. Even when it rains there is the indoor games room, indoor pool and movie theatre (The condo had a great selection of movies or you can hire them from reception.)
The condo itself was immaculately clean, spacious and comfortable with a great view from the balcony. It's as good as it looks in the photos and is so well stocked we didn't need to bother taking all the soaps and kitchen essentials. Lots of extras like the WiFi, iPod stations and TV's in both bedrooms. The bathrooms were brilliiant. We also had 2 adults on the sleep sofa for part of the stay and they said it was perfectly comfortable. Nice to have undercover secure parking and the fact that no one unauthorised could get in made us feel happy to let the kids go off on their own around the Lazy River.
Plenty to do in Galveston on a wet day too. Pirate exhibition, Mayfield Manor, Oil rig museum, Railroad museum etc. The Pleasure Pier has rides to scare anyone! All within 10 minutes drive.
We ate out quite a bit. Aside from the usual chains we went to The San Luis (take a warm jacket and a torch it's very cold and dark) and the West End Restaurant away from the crowds which was a really nice atmosphere and afterwards you can listen to live music in Sams Bar down below
The owner answered our emails promptly and was very helpful.
Would certainly recommend this to anyone and would be more than happy to go again.

ESCAPE FROM NYC!

This amazing unit in a well run full service building is all you need to escape everyday life and soak in the sun! It was wonderful to walk into a dazzling space that instantly felt like home and knowing that everything was thought of for us.

We had a great time enjoying all of the beach club amenities as well as exploring everything Galveston has to offer. If you are looking for a turnkey vacation were everything is at your fingertips then this is the property for you!

ELEGANT COMFORT

  • 5 of 5
This condominium does not disappoint. Not only does it provide everything you need in a vacation condo, you are surrounded by an upscale decor that at the same time is very comfortable. When you're not looking at the beautiful scenery out the windows (which by the way have motorized retractable window shades which are not found in all Diamond Beach condos but are nice to have for very sunny days or privacy at night), you can sit in the living room and just admire all of the decorating details! The bedrooms are just as nice as the living area and the beds are wonderful. It was a real treat to spend our weekend in this beautiful condo! You can tell the owner really cares about her guests.
