Texas Gulf Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

Available for weekly rentals, six night minimum.


Head across the causeway to Galveston Island and feel the tension in your shoulders loosen. Admire the charming Victorian homes on Broadway as you approach the Gulf. Smile when you see the waves of East Beach. When you arrive at Palisade Palms, feel the gentle breeze in your hair. Enter the cheerful lobby and take the quick elevator ride to your beach getaway. Put down your bags and head for the balcony. Smell the salt air. Listen to the sound of the surf and the gulls. Exhale.

Feeling a little better?

What'll it be next? A walk on the beach? Shopping on the Strand? An umbrella drink? A festival? A good burger? A spot in the sun? An Island tour? Some live music? Galveston will keep you as busy or as inert as you want to be. High-brow or 'down and dirty', the Island has it all. The only stress you'll have is what to do next.

So relax and enjoy your stay. Who says therapy has to be painful?

About Jan Vandenburg

We bought our place at Palisade Pams after losing our beach house to Hurricane Ike and losing a family member to a long illness. Those were some stressful times. Our 'little slice of paradise' helped us make it through. The drive down from Houston on Friday afternoons, the anticipation of putting down the cares of the day and the opportunity for respite was a blessing for us. Fixing up our place and becoming part of the Island was such good therapy. Now, we are pleased to be able to share it with you.

Why Jan Vandenburg chose Texas Gulf Coast

This building is right on the beach! The location is super. The beach is in great shape. The fifteenth floor location makes for a great view. The two balconies provide for a panoramic view. The building is shiny and new and has many amenities.

What makes this condo unique

This condo has two balconies! The popular Pompano floor plan has balconies on the beach side and the other bayside.See the sun rise and watch it set again.

Always a Great Time

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying at Beach Therapy. The first time was great and I mentioned a couple of things to Jan. On my recent stay, I arrived at the unit with the suggestions. The place is great but it's also great that the owner listens and improves the place (although it really doesn't need much). There was a new rule that you can't just park in the garage anymore without some special tag. I used to be able to and it was really great for loading and unloading as well as when it's bad weather outside. I don't know what the building management was thinking on that. But, parking on the regular parking wasn't too bad. The beach was great and weather cooperated enough that I had my fill of the sun and the beach. My two pooches enjoyed their stay as well and met several other dogs. I'm sure I'll be back again in the near future. I highly recommend this place. Thanks Jan.

I spent a wonderful week in this beautiful condo in January and loved every moment. The views are incredible, the condo and building were immaculate and quiet, and I had everything I needed. Nirvana!

Wow! Wow! Wow!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Galveston many times and this is by far the best condo I have ever stayed in. The views from the two balconies of the ocean, the bay and the city are spectacular!. The condo is decorated well, is well kept and clean, and is warm and welcoming. The staff at Palisade Palms is pleasant and helpful. The building is well maintained and the amenities are numerous. Galveston this time of year is awesome. Pleasant temps. plenty of sunshine, lots to do and no crowds. STAY HERE!

Beautiful Oceanview

  • 4 of 5

The Condo was just as the pictures shown on the web site. The best part are the 2 balconies one on each end of the living & dinning area...what a view on the 15th floor. We received great service from the owner and the staff at Palisade Palms. I would recommend a stay here, and we hope to return soon. There was only one thing that needs some attention. The cleaning staff needs to do a better job of cleaning. We make several trips a year to the Gulf Coast. Of course, we love Galveston with its history and beautiful 1900 century homes. The restaurant's in Galveston have wonderful sea food.

Our Family Agreed it Was Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The little glitch we encountered checking in was soon forgotten once we experienced this fabulous condo. The views from the condo are exceptional. The balconies facing both the Gulf and the Bay are to be enjoyed at sunrise, sunset, and all through the day. The condo itself is welcoming--luxurious. The T.V. even has Netflix (that is if you find time for TV😄). Palisade Palms is right on the beach, so your time will be filled with beach walks, swimming in the pool, the hot tubs, the games room, the sports venues (basketball, tennis, volleyball), and my personal favourite which was free coffee in the coffee bar until noon! The staff are exceptionally kind and helpful. Thank you for sharing your condo--it made the week we spent in Galveston for our son's wedding a relaxing occasion--definitely five star. We look forward to staying with you again.

This east end location is off the beaten path and yet is only ten minutes from The Historic Strand, the Boliver ferry landing, the cruise ship terminal, the bustling Seawall, fine restaurants, shopping and many tourist attractions. A short drive across the island will take you to Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn Waterpark. And, of course, there's the beach...Watch dramatic sunrises, coffee in hand, while sitting comfortably on your private balcony. Watch the cruise ships and merchant ships head out to sea. Walk over the dunes to miles of clean, wide beach. Spend the day under a big umbrella enjoying the sand and surf.

Palisade Palms is a premier location; clean and new and meticulously kept. The building has many amenities. Spend the day by our crystal blue pool. Play a game of billiards or watch the game on the big screen TV in our game room. Relax in our hot tub. Enjoy the view from our lanai. Complimentary newspapers, coffee and iced tea are available on our mezzanine on weekends.
