Why Karen Madden chose Galveston Island
We bought this property because we fell in love with Diamond Beach, and wanted a place for family and friends to stay when visiting. We have furnished and supplied the unit as if it were a second home.
What makes this Condo unique
The views from the unit are simply breathtaking. When I stood in the kitchen, I could see for miles down the beach at low tide. Our kids loved the pools and game room. We love to relax at Bar None or work out in the fitness room, all the while enjoying amazing views of the Gulf of Mexico.

Lovely place and property
I've had relatives stay at Diamond Beach before, but this was our first time in this condo. The location is perfect, the view gorgeous, and the owners were helpful and responsive. I highly recommend both the resort and this property to anyone looking for a relaxing visit to Galveston.
Great unit on the beach
Our second time to stay in this unit at Diamond Beach. As it is February, the resort’s indoor pool is large and warm. Unit 507 is very well equipped and extremely clean. Owners are close by and care about the quality of your stay.
This condo is absolutely lovely! It was extremely clean. The decor is lovely too. The owner met us when we arrived and gave us lots of information about the resort. This condo had everything we needed for a great stay. The resort was amazing with its pool, lazy river and water slide!
Thank you Jan! You were great guests! I hope you will be able to visit again some time. Please let me know that you are repeat visitors, as I always try to give you my best rate.
Great place and larger than expected
Loved it! Highly recommend.
Owner was there for any questions and walked us through the condo. Condo was extremely nice and clean and even had towels for the pool. Lazy River was amazing and although the pool side bar was not open you could bring your own drinks. We would stay at this condo again. The only suggestion I would suggest is that you bring your own pillows if you like big, fluffy pillows.
Immaculate beachfront condo
The condo was great and by far the cleanest vacation rental that I have ever stayed in. Karen the owner was very gracious and accommodating.
The king bed was very comfortable and the condo was in a good location. It's right on the beach with a beautiful oceanfront view but still close to restaurants and entertainment. I would definitely stay there again.
Thanks Amy! I appreciate your nice comment, and I especially appreciate what great guests you all were. You left the condo in such great shape! I hope that you will stay with us again!
Diamond Beach is Galveston's only five-star, mid-rise resort residences, located at the end of the historic Seawall. This 5th Floor, 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo has endless Gulf views, and all the luxurious amenities of the resort, including indoor and outdoor pools, spa, bar, fitness center, theater and game room. Located on Galveston’s West Beach, Diamond Beach enjoys the premier location on the island, on the south side of FM 3005, allowing residents the ability to walk out onto their own private beach and the Galveston beach beyond – without ever crossing a road.
Galveston Island is located on the Texas coastline just 50 miles south of Houston, featuring 32 miles of beaches and a relaxed atmosphere. There are abundant leisure activities, excellent medical facilities, award-winning restaurants and exciting attractions. A vibrant historic downtown, the Strand, offers easy access to cruise ships, fishing excursions, shopping and sightseeing.
Galveston is famous for its festivals - from Dickens on the Strand, to Mardi Gras and the Lone Star Bike Rally. For the athlete, there are sanctioned events scheduled all during the year. Galveston has shopping for any taste, whether it's antique, upscale, artsy, or beach trendy.
Top attractions include the famous Moody Gardens, which has the Aquarium and Rainforest Pyramids, an IMAX 3D, 4D Special FX theater and IMAX Ridefilm theaters; silky-smooth Palm Beach, with white sand and freshwater lagoons; and the 19th century style Colonel Paddlewheeler. Schlitterbahn Waterpark features uphill water coasters, water slides, kid’s playgrounds, whitewater rapids, wave poosl, hot tubs, plus the Boogie Bahn surf ride Schlitterbahn’s Wasserfest. The park offers a dozen heated attractions in a warm, tropical oasis featuring four enclosed tube slides, the Torrent Tidal Wave River, three speed slides, three water playgrounds and more. The historic Pleasure Pier is an amusement park over the Gulf of Mexico, fashioned after another historic landmark, Galveston's Electric Park. Traditional rides will include a 36-foot diameter, double-decker carousel and a 100-foot tall Ferris Wheel, and for the more adventurous, a steel roller coaster with a 100-foot vertical climb, 200-foot tall swing recognized as the highest ride in Texas and classic bumper cars for adults and children.
Museums cover every facet of land, sea or air, from the art deco Railroad Museum near The Strand, to the Ocean Star Offshore Museum on Pier 20, to the Lone Star Flight Museum, and the Texas Seaport Museum on Pier 21 featuring the Tall Ship Elissa.
Galveston is a great place to visit year round, with average temperatures ranging from the 60's in the winter to the upper 80's in the summer. Island life is also enhanced by the absence of traffic congestion, making it a quick 'commute' to any destination on the Island.
