About Laurel Sukel, Gayle & Helen King
We are Gayle and Helen King and Laurel Sukel. We are mostly retired with a small consulting business we run from home. We love the beach and all the great amenities Diamond Beach has to offer.
Laurel Sukel, Gayle & Helen King purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Laurel Sukel, Gayle & Helen King chose Galveston
We (the Kings) bought a condo here in February 2013 as a place to get together with family and friends on weekends. We chose DB because of the setting close to the beach, the fabulous amenities for kids of all ages, and the luxury feel. It is close to Galveston’s many attractions, but located away from most of the traffic and noise. We loved it so much, we found we were spending more time at Diamond Beach than at our home. So we sold our home in 2014 and bought a bigger unit here as our permanent residence. After a year of having guests in our first condo, we decided to buy another one with my sister to provide the same wonderful experience to even more guests. We are on the property most of the time, available to answer any questions you have, and help you make the most out of your stay. If you have need for accommodations for a large group (up to 16 people), our two rentals are side-by-side.
What makes this Condo unique
The palm trees, the beautiful pool, the grill on our huge patio, the sounds of surf and seagulls and the pelicans flying overhead continue to charm us. The sky and water are different every day, with unique sunrises and sunsets, all types of vessels sailing by as well as the occasional dolphin. Walking on the beach each morning and floating around the lazy river are our special pleasures. When the weather is bad, we retreat to the indoor heated pool. Diamond Beach has a movie theatre we can reserve, a game room with free pinball, pool, foosball, and shuffleboard, as well as a WII room. The concierge can supply DVDs and games. There’s a playroom for toddlers, a state-of-the art fitness center with incredible views, a bar, a spa, a beach volleyball court, and lots of common areas for all kinds of activities. To say nothing of the longest swimming pool in Texas with depths ranging from 2 inches to 5 feet.

Enjoyed by the whole family!
We had a wonderful, relaxing week here!!! The condo was nicely furnished and well-stocked! The owners have thought of everything!!! Thank you for an easy family getaway. We all enjoyed the beach, lazy river, waterslide, and pool. The kids also enjoyed the games, toys, books, and puzzles in the room. They played hard and slept soundly all week!!
Another fantastic stay (3rd year at #203)
This is our 3rd year staying in #203. We are looking forward to many years to come. The condo always meets all our expectations. We are a family of 4 adults and 5 children. There is plenty of room for everyone. The large patio is one of our favorite spots to eat, laugh and enjoy the beautiful breeze. Gayle and family are onsite. You will only need to pack your clothes. The condo has everything you will need for a great stay at the beach (chairs, beach toys, floats, beach towels, etc.) We are looking forward to 2020 for another wonderful stay.
A perfect Review
We came down here for a quick family getaway. It was so much more than we were expecting. We really didn’t need to. Bring anything other than our own personal clothes. The owners have this place fully stocked with all your needs. From kids toys, beach necessities /toys, kitchen gadgets and more! The pool area was so fun. Our kids 2 and 4 really enjoyed the slide and lazy river. The beach is not overcrowded and just a short walk away. We had a blast and will definitely be back!!
A Perfect Vacation Spot
My family rented condo 203 owned by the Kings. We met Gayle King upon arrival and he gave us a tour of the facility. It is just beautiful. The condo looked exactly like the pictures. It was immaculately clean and very well appointed. Bathrooms and kitchen were high end. Lots of toys, for indoor relaxation for kids and adults were available. And no need to pack beach supplies because everything you’ll need is there for your use. My 11 and 13 year old grandchildren enjoyed the resort and the beach. There’s a great lazy river! Grocery stores and restaurants are minutes away. And don’t forget to visit The Strand! I will definitely rent this condo again and recommend it to family and friends.
Perfect for Families with Little Ones
We stayed here with my parents and our two boys (8 & 3) were so pleased with the options this condo provided for the kids. There was an abundance of toys (both for use in the condo and at the pool/beach), books, pool floats, sand toys, boogie boards, toddler seat, pack & play, beach chairs, beach cart, etc. We did not have to buy one beach toy as I was prepared to do. It was so nice to not have to pack all this for a beach trip. We could not have been happier! The owners supplied an abundance of beach and bath towels and keep a very clean, enjoyable vacation rental. Just an fyi - the pathway down to the beach was a little steep which might be hard on someone with mobility issues. We made it easily, but I was slightly nervous for my dad who has some issues with balance. We loved the pool and lazy river which were amazing. Never crowded. Very pleasant. Very clean and luxurious. My 8 year old kept saying "this is a luxury hotel" and I would agree that the pool definitely added to our experience. Already planning our stay for next summer!
VRBO Diamond Beach Condo #203
We absolutely loved the condo and the owners were great to work with. The condo was very clean and spacious. The pool was so much fun. The sound on the living room tv was sub par. My mother and daughter are in a wheelchair and the walkway to the beach after you leave the pool area could be improved. There was no way they could get to the beach on the path. If a bridge was built over the dunes it would be great. However we all had a great time and would rent it again.
Diamond Beach is on the quiet side of Galveston, steps from the beach. But it’s an easy drive to Galveston’s multitude of restaurants, festivals and activities for every age group. Many people opt to spend all their time at the resort--it’s so pleasant and there’s so much to do here!
