About Pamela Rohan

We live in Cypress, TX (Houston) and Love Galveston Island! We own several properties in Galveston and at Palisade Palms. We are Hands-On Owners that want to make sure you have a Great Vacation!

Pamela Rohan purchased this condo in 2011

Why Pamela Rohan chose Texas Gulf Coast

Built in 2008, this is an ultra-modern Condo. THE nicest property Galveston has to offer. Nothing else like it. East Beach is huge and more private than the surrounding beaches. It is one of the very few properties DIRECTLY on the beach, no crossing highways or seawall. Staff is friendly and helpful. You can't beat a 15th floor view of downtown Galveston at night. The master bedroom has an ocean view.

What makes this condo unique

Palisade Palms is Beachfront on Quiet and Peaceful East Beach! This is a very secure facility, very well built with modern amenities and design.

We have a mother & daughters beach vacation every year for the last 10 years. My mother said that this was her favorite location and condo. Great access, easy check in and out. Beautiful beach, and the condo was AMAZING!!! As a veteran condo renter, it was extra nice that the owner had thoughtfully provided the little things that we usually forget. Shampoo, soap, laundry and dish soap etc. We will definitely be back!

We loved this condo! Great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Even though it rained most of our trip we didn't skip a beat! The kids played in the game room or swam in the heated pool. Loved being able to walk along the beach and then rinse off feet, sand toys ect. At the dock. In the parking garage there is a hose to spray your car down. The condo was very comfortable and felt like home. We loved our stay, thank you!

Great Extended Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic condo. Nice amenities. Great owner. Close to everything. That about says it all. Pam is great and made everything very easy. Our family stayed for a little over 2 months, and we were very comfortable the entire time. Our 9-year old loved the pool and the beach access. Downtown is an easy bike ride away so we were able to participate in several weekend events. It was nice to be so close to town yet to have a wide, quiet beach out front. To make the bay views even more interesting, we downloaded an app that told us about the big ships we watched go by. Thanks again, Pam. We loved it!
