About Ellen May
I live in Houston. I have been a licensed real estate broker for 35 years. I graduated from Rice University. I owned a property on West End in Galveston, but as a senior citizen, just knew I would enjoy condo living so much more. Palisade Palms with it's fabulous security was the answer as Galveston is one of my favorite places to 'get away from it all'. Come on down and enjoy what we love about our home away from home.
Ellen May purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Ellen May chose Galveston
Having been a realtor I was always cognizant of the first 3 rules of purchasing a home--1. Location 2. Location 3. Location. There are many similar plans in this hi-rise and of course they have different views. This Malibu has IT ALL! Views down the beach toward the Pleasure Pier/grand views of the Gulf/and a marvelous location to see pool area and water features etc. without being disturbed by the participants. We were pleasantly surprised to find we lucked out literally with this condo location. Totally shaded and breezy (usually) in the popular summer months, and sunny and warm during the winter months which make for year round enjoyment.
What makes this Condo unique
Without sounding redundant, the location of this particular unit was exactly what I was looking for in Palisade Palms. This floor plan affords 2 private separate bedrooms on either side of living area with en suite bathrooms. The bonus room has trundle beds but is a fun play room for kids also.

Our stay at Ellen's condo was awesome!!! Her condo was very clean and had everything we needed. Even extras other condo's don't supply. She made us welcome to use condiments in the refrigerator. Also, she had washing detergent, bounce sheets and a host of other things we did not have to buy. She was available to answer my many questions and she replied to questions quickly. We will for sure return to Ellen's condo. Oh, the location was the best. On the quiet east end of the island. No traffic noise. Just peace sitting on the balcony looking at the Gulf!!! Thank you again, Ellen!!!
LR, thanks for wonderful review. I was happy you were able to accommodate my dates, since my friend’s birthday was a great success. Sorry Imelda had to join you.😲�🌊�
Ellen is an amazing host/homeowner. Her beautiful home is the perfect getaway for any trip!
We thoroughly lived the condo! It had everything and more than we needed for our trip. Great quiet property and beach to enjoy during our stay. Ellen was always available, but never intrusive. What a fantastic condo! Thank you Ellen for sharing your beautiful home for our anniversary trip!
My pleasure and so glad you enjoyed your visit. Thx for taking time to submit a review.
We are native Houstonians so we've been visiting Galveston all of our lives. This is truly the most beautiful spot on the island.
This is a beautiful condo with everything you need for your stay. Ellen is a wonderful hostess & will answer any questions you have!
It’s so nice to read such a positive review. Thank you,
Wonderful! Highly recommended
We had a great stay and appreciated many thoughtful touches including the well-stocked kitchen, beach toys, games, and even the first aid kid in the master bathroom. Ellen did a great job staying in touch with us prior to and during our rental, and she made sure we had everything we needed.
Who could ask for a better review? Thank you.
I rented Ellen’s place for my in-laws to stay as we needed two condos for the number of people we had. We liked this condo much more than the one my family stayed in. The location and view from the room are wonderful. The place was spotless and had everything my in-laws needed for the week. We loved the layout and appreciated the extra space vs the smaller 2 bedroom condos at Palisade Palms. Ellen was so helpful in answering questions and checking to make sure we had everything we needed. We have stayed at several places throughout Galveston, but we have returned to Palisade Palms because it has everything. It’s right on the beach with a wonderful pool and amenities but still close to all of our favorite restaurants and things to do on the island. We have now put Ellen’s place at the top of the list for the next time we return!
KY, even though you didn’t stay in my condo, your feedback was important since you had rented another in PP. Thanks for your candid review. I got the impression your other 1/2 family were pleased. Thank you. Ellen
This is the perfect spot to be in Galveston. Close to but not right in town. Right by the beach. The pool and game room are great. The suite was clean and had everything we needed. Ellen was also very helpful. Overall, I can't say much more than we hope to come back!
Thanks for taking the time to review. The thank you note from the kids on my refrigerator said it ALL. So glad you came to visit.
