Upscale oceanfront condo features shared pool, hot tub, sauna, and nearby beach!

Bright sunshine, warm Gulf of Mexico waves, and a variety of resort amenities - what more could you want from your next Texas vacation? Show your loved ones a trip to Galveston they'll always remember with this oceanfront condo (just two blocks from Stewart Beach) that includes access to shared pools, hot tubs, a sauna, and tennis courts.

Located at Palisade Palms, this condo for eight puts you steps from white sands and crashing waves. The beach by the building is fantastic in its own right, but more variety awaits at R.A. Apffel East Beach Park nearby. When you're not napping on a fluffy towel or taking a walk with a few close friends, you can hit the road and venture to Galveston. The famous Seawall is lined with shopping and dining to try, as well as the thrilling rides of Pleasure Pier. If you head inland, you can stop by the Grand Opera House or the elegant furnishings of the Moody Mansion.

Whether you spend your days exploring nearby sights or visiting Schlitterbahn and Moody Gardens to the west, you can always relax back at Palisade Palms at the end of the day. A wide selection of amenities makes it easy to kick back and relax. A wooden walkway from the beach leads to the shared pools and hot tubs, with a dry sauna if you need more ways to unwind. Enjoy some friendly competition in the shared game room or work up a sweat in the gym.

When you're ready to wind down for the evening, retreat to your sleek and modern condo, complete with balcony views of the water. Granite counters and stainless steel appliances make the kitchen perfect for whipping up meals. Meanwhile, the cushy furnishings of the living room provide a vantage point for taking in free WiFi and cable on the flatscreen TV.

One of the best views in town.

We loved every aspect of our trip to Palisades Palms. The condo was just as described. Kitchen was well stocked, plenty of towels and ample space for family of six. Our favorite spot was the balcony. The view was amazing and the outdoor furniture very comfortable. We found the beach access to be very convenient and appreciated having a clean, well maintained area to hose off shoes, etc. after a walk on the beach. Don’t hesitate to rent this condo.

Although our vacation landed right in the midst of Imelda, we had a great time at this condo. Stocked with everything to make it feel like home for a week, plus a whole closet full of beach toys, chairs, wagon, towels, etc. Our 1.5 year old had a blast in the Kids Room and in the kids pool at Palisade Palms. We would definitely stay again!

I think this is the nicest condo on the Island. The staff is great and the building and grounds are wonderful!

This unit at the Palisades Palms was well appointed and very comfortable for me and my family! The views of both the pool AND the Gulf of Mexico were spectacular! The game room was a big plus for my grandsons! I would not hesitate to book this unit again!

I don't think there is a better condo on the island.

The pool, coffee bar on the 2nd floor, easy beach access, beautiful sunrise and sunset view from balconies

The resort is great, the view is awesome, but the best thing is the beach access and privacy. This beach is empty compared to the main city of Galveston. Not even on the weekends did we see a crowd.

The unit is well stocked with beach toys, beach chairs, a beach wagon and a beach cooler to tote around. The AC in our unit went out prior to arrival and Vacasa put in a temp solution to cool the room while the repairs were being made. This could have been a disaster, but Vacasa stepped up and took care of the situation. The property manager was easy to get ahold of and very responsive.

If we come back to Galveston, we will be sure to stay at this unit again.

This building had a lot to offer my teenagers - pool, game room, ping pong & private beach. The unit was very clean & inviting and the building staff was incredibly friendly & helpful. Great trip!

We had such a nice time in this gorgeous, well appointed home! We loved the larger balcony. Even though it was cold and rainy, we truly loved the balcony and the amazing view! Thank you so much for a fantastic vacation.

Lovely and spacious 2 bedroom unit. Great views of the beach, pools, hot tubs, pleasure pier in the distance, and ships on the horizon waiting entrance to the ship channel. Unit was very well maintained, clean, and stocked with necessities. Hope to return!
Carl C. Oct 2018
Nice value. Loved everything about it but only 2 minor observations. The blinds are very hard to open/close but it can be done. I like a firm bed but wife doesn't. The beds were very firm. Would definitely stay here again.
Cindy J. Oct 2018
The unit was very comfortable and very homey feeling to us. Love the views that we got up to every morning and after our day was done. Although we did not cook any meals there it was nicely stocked with whatever you needed to use. It's always nice to have a "home" to stay in and not deal with a hotel. Absolutely LOVED the Wave Chair set!!!! Everything was perfect for our stay in Galveston. Would love to come back here next year for we enjoyed everything! Thank you so much!!

We've been to the Palisade Palms four times now and this was the first time in this unit. It was nicely decorated but there are a few minor things needing attention. 1) the garbage disposal is leaking, 2) two light bulbs were out in the kitchen track lighting, 3) the second bedroom (non-master) bed was very soft - maybe too soft, 4) the hall restroom toilet was stopped up but we managed to cleared it with a plunger, 5) master bedroom blinds were very hard to open (up or down) and one was inoperable. We did send an email to Vacasa but did not get a response. Overall our stay was pleasant with even with these items. It was good that Vacasa notified us when early check-in and late-checkout was available for a fee.
Manager response:
We have rectified the maintenance issues and refunded this guest accordingly. Thank you!
Jennifer L. Jul 2018
Great location. Beautiful condo. Had everything we needed. The view is amazing. It was easy to get to the beach and pool from the room. Would definitely come back again!
Nancy W. Jul 2018
Our condo rental was great. Exactly like the pics online and very well stocked. Palisade Palms has wonderful staff and public areas kept very clean. Pool was awesome! Now for the but...after arriving at our destination very tired from traveling all day, we were told our signed contract had not been sent over from Vacasa. I had received an email earlier that day from Dominic Lopez that included a phone number to call if we had any questions. We called several times, left messages and even texted. Staff at Palisade Palms also tried calling. After 45 frustrating minutes we finally got in touch with Nick who sent over the required contract. No apology was made and we still have not heard from Dominic. Unacceptable and would hesitate to rent from Vacasa again!
Christina S. Jun 2018
The condo was great and the property had a lot to offer. Had several rain days so the game room was perfect. Would be happy to go again.
Chuck A. Jun 2018
We have stayed at palisade palms 4 years in a row. 1st time in this condo. We loved it. You can hear the ocean a lot better and we had a nice breeze on the balcony all the time. Condo is stocked with all you need for your stay. I just want to thank the owners for sharing their beautiful place with us. We will be back!
Jill C. May 2018
Everything was as pictured! Condo was well stocked and even provided beach chairs, etc. The decor complemented the beautiful Gulf Coast view. The complex was very secure, and the amenities were an added bonus. Would definitely rent again!
Robert M. Mar 2018
This place was perfect for us. The condo was clean and well decorated. It was located away from the main strip in Galveston affording a quiet place for my family to vacation. The pool was clean and well-maintained, and we loved the beach as well. The apartment is equipped with all the basics and plenty more. The kitchen was stocked with nice pots and pans, basic spices, as well as additional things that you may have forgotten. The condo also provided beach equipment that was helpful for us, as we had none. We really enjoyed our time here!
