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.

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.

Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

Overall we had an amazing time at Diamond Beach Resort! The Condo was spacious and clean. A/c works great (or those like me who can't stand to be hot). The Owner is very quick to respond to questions and extremely accommodating. The balcony has a beautiful view of the beach and pool, which is nice in early morning & late evening (beautiful view of the moon rising in the East). If I "had" to say anything negative about the Condo it'd be that the decor colors in living room aren't very "beachy" (red, black)... But the artwork on the walls throughout the Condo are great (vintage beach pics).

One huge plus for us was that the Game room is on the same floor as this Condo, which was great for the kids (but note this, the convenience of this awesome gameroom all depends on the Resort Staff for the day. Every day we were there, we were able to allow our 12 yr olds to head to the gameroom alone (which was perfect b/c at 45 yrs old, I'm not wanting to "hang" in a game room, lol), HOWEVER, on one particular day that we were there, one "office lady" was brash with our kids and ordered them out of the gameroom unless parents were present (she said they weren't old enough to be there alone). We spoke w the lady, explained that the age requirement is different on the website (vs. the paperwork given to us upon check in) and she ultimately changed her negative attitude and allowed our (very well mannered boys) to return to the gameroom w/o us. It would be great if the Resort would get on the same page on that issue, as 12 yrs old is mature enough for this type of responsibility. (It should be noted that all other days, there were kids of all ages in the gameroom w/o parents (8 yr olds etc).

The Movie theater was a great experience and the pool and hot tub were amazing!!!!!!

Finally, the Condo was very centrally located... We were only 10 mins away from Pleasure Pier and less than that distance to Sclitterbahn.

All in all, we had a terrific vacation and will happily stay here again!
