About eight miles down-island from the Strand, and surrounded by manicured grounds, pools, and surf, your next Texas beach vacation is sure to be a memorable one!
This three-bedroom, two-bathroom rental offers guests a wonderfully eclectic getaway. Bright colors and fun patterns dominate the decor - enjoy the orange wavy rugs that match the two reading chairs in the main living space, and the sunset-orange wall in the second bedroom. The balcony offers a fabulous spot for reading, watching your kiddos while enjoying an afternoon snack, or family meals you can cook in your own fully-functional kitchen.
Amenities in this condo will keep you informed and entertained. The flatscreen Apple TV has a cable connection, a Blu-ray DVD player, and Netflix and Hulu streaming capability. This unit comes with its own iMac with WiFi - no need to bring your personal device if you need to check email, or read the latest feed on Wired.
The three bedrooms are all uniquely comfortable. The master suite has a king bed in white sheets and an abstract rug, plus its own bathroom; the guest room has a queen bed, and the third bedroom has two twins. Each bed comes with plenty of throw pillows (fort building, anybody?), and you even get your own washer/dryer to keep linens fresh and bathing suits brine and chlorine-free!
Diamond Beach is an upscale oasis that offers its guests a variety of amenities to satisfy any whim. Your third-floor condo looks out over the seawall, where guests may stroll, jog, bike, or scooter with views of the sand and surf. The pools are made for every swimmer: this Galveston vacation condo has views of the Infinity Pool and Lazy River. And of course, don't forget the beach for surfing, sand castle building, picnicking, or fishing.
Galveston's Strand is well-known for its historical architecture, fancy shops, and fun dining. Try out golf at Moody Gardens, or the water slides at Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark.

Diamond Beach is a lovely resort
Stacie W.Aug 2019
Yes, it was awesome
Ryan L.Jul 2019
It is a comfortable condo
Sherry G.Jul 2019
This condo is freshly update, clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and the bed comfortable. Downside: resort doesn't allow your own alcohol by the pool after noon. Bummer.
Denise C.Jul 2019
The veiw of the ocean is wonderful.
Eva S.Jun 2019
Right on the ocean. Nice views, nice sea breeze.
Rosemary f.Jun 2019
The bedrooms were nice, clean and spacious. The view was great but the lazy river took center stage. I love this property and would stay here again on a girls trip. thank you for having us in your beautiful home
Steven L.Jun 2019
A great place to stay
Patricia R.Jun 2019
The views are great. The pool and lazy river are a blast.
Daniel G.May 2019
Super clean condo and a great place!!
Vanessa P.Mar 2019
Great location and facilities. Check in was easy and desk is manned 24/7 for convenience. Note that the toilet in master suite does not have a separate door so for privacy you need to lock the entire bedroom but other than that accommodation was good. Note that decor and furnishings were different to what is shown on photos but essentially the same level of interior design. We were able to access Wi-Fi there.
Rhonda M.Feb 2019
Lots to do at the resort. Kids had fun in the game room, pools and beach. Even get to rent out the movie theatre for free.
Britney G.Jan 2019
Loved the floor plan, amenities, activities around and updates to the home. Definitely would come back during the summer.
Larissa K.Nov 2018
We had our 3 kids (2,3,and 4) with us. I have never stayed anywhere so family friendly! Multiple pools, beach a 2 min walk from the pool area, lazy river, and two game rooms (one specifically for toddlers!) made this place a true vacation. We visited off season, and were the only ones using any of the amenities... felt like we had the whole place to ourselves!
Michael B.Aug 2018
Very clean, kid friendly, very well maintained, excellent security, over all just a wonderful place to get away and feel like your in paradise
kelly d.Aug 2018
The site was amazing, the pool, the lazy river and the easy access to the beach were exactly what I had hoped for.
Sarah G.Aug 2018
Appliances (refrigerator, dryer) not working properly, Plumbing issues (toilet broken and kitchen sink faucet broken). No extra supplies (toilet paper). No kleenex at all. Minimal towels supplied for 5 people. Tried to call Vacasa multiple times....no answer. For some reason this condo has different maintenance companies, this one was Vacasa. Would not rent from Vacasa again.
We are sorry to see our guest had some problems during their stay. The maintenance issues have been resolved, and we apologize for not leaving enough amenities. We are unsure of why this guest would not have received an answer to their calls and want to please remind guests to use the numbers provided in their check-in information and/or trip portal. Thank you!
Lori S.Jul 2018
Pool, ocean view and grounds were stunning!
Kathy D.Jul 2018
The unit and appliances were clean. There was a game room with a pool table, A few video games, and foosball which the kids enjoyed. We also made use of the theater room in the building, which was nice surprise. The staff were accommodating and friendly. However, the unit wasn’t quite great because there was still dishes with food particles, the dining table out on the patio had some rust marks, and lights in the family room might have a contact issue because we couldn’t get them on the first night. The kids love the pool, hot tub, and lazy river. This beach section that the condo was on didn’t seem nice so we only went once.
Connie F.Jun 2018
Nice facility and condo!
Kathleen C.Jun 2018
We enjoyed our stay at the Diamond Beach condos, the property is beautiful with lots of things to do. The amenities are great, love the lazy river, the pool is always clean with plenty of room and the landscaping is beautiful. The unit had some issues but the people with Vacasa were very helpful and did their best to fix our issues. The units furniture is modern (which is fine) but not that comfortable or easy to get out of for my Mother with bad knees. And there is no dining table inside the unit just a nice one outside. We enjoy playing games in the evening, so no table inside made it difficult. The condo was clean & had pretty much everything you would need for your stay. For my Mother, I wish the beach was a little closer/easier walk to get to.
Kim L.Jul 2017
Nice condo to stay! We suggested they upgrade/add more seating for the living area. All bedrooms comfy with TV's. Table seating on the baloney for eating and a couple chairs with a lounger.
Anthony T.Jul 2017
Gretchen W.Apr 2017
We had a wonderful time in this unit. Interior was clean, well kept and decorated very nicely. I was not sure how we were going to like a 3rd floor condo, but in fact it worked out perfectly. We were able to see the pool area, and keep an eye on our teenagers from the balcony. We had a fabulous weekend at Diamond Beach.
Teresa W.Mar 2017
The living room seating needs to be updated. For long term seating the couch is the only comfortable place.
Holly P.Mar 2017
Great unit to stay in. Easy access to the elevators and pools. Very clean and lots of appliances and cooking items. The decor is beautiful and comfy. Extremely beachy and cozy. The only negative is there is no door on the master bath in the master suite. Therefore, you are exposed if you are using the toilet. Everything else was just fine.
Rachelle A.Nov 2016
The condo was wonderful. Such a great place to stay. I would recommend this condo to anyone interested.
Shane M.Sep 2016
We had a great stay here, the beds are super comfortable. The only request we have is please get more comfortable chairs in the living room. The cable was also not the best. Signal was fuzzy. Fortunately we brought a laptop with all the connections so kiddos could watch movies on a rainy day.
Stacey B.Aug 2016
We absolutely love staying here! This was our second visit and we plan to make it a yearly tradition. My kids (ages 11, 9 & 2), hubby, and I each enjoy every aspect of Diamond on the Beach. It's clean, comfortable, and the amenities provided are exceptional.
Lindsay E.Aug 2016
Great place to stay we will be back. Just PLEASE get better seating in the living room!
Julie R.Jul 2016
Great place to stay.
Jeffrey S.Jul 2016
Lyles M.Jun 2016
The unit that we stayed in was very pretty but not very well thought out. There was no dining area (table and chairs) to dine for any meals. The facilities were awesome from the lazy river to the grilling area.
Jerry O.May 2016
enjoyed the condo - it would have been netter if there was a dining table for eating and playing cards
Daniela P.Apr 2016
It was very sad that we only stayed for two nights because we would've loved to stay a little longer . The property was in excellent condition and had everything we needed , The location was phenomenal is so woere the amenities
Our only complaint was this smell of fresh paint that lasted for over 24 hours and didn't let us sleep the first night

1. Diamond Beach Condos offers a high end experience even if lacking direct beach access. Indoor heated pool and extensive outdoor pools, plus extensive commons areas and, in Diamond on Beach unit, tremendous style. It's a luxury stay, and while there off-season with no local school break, an almost eerily quiet time given that the condos have only 3 permanent residents and all the others are second places some rented to family groups like ours. Without hesitation I'd rent 310 again, it's stylish and charming. Some other units listed for more money show photos of horrific furnishings (I only hope they did not pay a decorator, and if so they certainly did not use the talented one that finished Diamond on the Beach so nicely). Having money does not mean having taste, but who am I to judge as you might prefer a wicker sleeper sofa and pink painted walls over creative class expressed through a thoroughly modern Italian sofa with whimsical pillows, woven wall covering and unique light fixtures? The king and queen mattresses are the fancy memory foam types, quite comfy even to me who usually prefers a traditional mattress, and the twins are of good quality spring bedding. Kitchen was quite well equipped, better than expected. I won't look elsewhere if I plan a Galveston return trip. YMMV.
2. If you head to Galveston: historic downtown offers gems, just avoid the chains, tourist trap food and souvenir shops seeking out instead the longstanding legends, art galleries and creative local cafes. Eat Cetera, Oasis vegetarian cafe, Olympia Grill, Star Drug, La King, Hey Mikey's, Rosenberg Library, Tree Sculptures Tour in historic district, Post Office Gallery District around 21st, The Grand 1894 Opera House. Historic house tours, too. Walk around and enjoy the architecture.
Ryan W.Mar 2016
Great condo, everything was as described and pictured.
Rozlyn C.Mar 2016
Overall visit was great and relaxing for friends and family to make great memories without leaving property
Cindy K.Mar 2016
Have stayed in diamond before and the condo we rented was nicely furnished with everything we needed and was comfortable. The most recent unit was not up to the same level of comfort. I will do better next time to check the reviews before booking
We are sorry to see that you were a bit disappointed in this unit and will advise the Property Manager of your comments.
Brian M.Oct 2015
Excellent condition and location for the price.
Todd B.Oct 2015
Have stayed about everywhere on the Texas coast and this has become the only place we will keep coming back to. Galveston has a lot to do compared to South Padre or Port Aransas.
Stacey B.Sep 2015
My family was thrilled with everything about this place! The condo was incredible. Everything was clean and felt very high end, and the view was breathtaking. My kids loved having the indoor pool to play in on the days it rained, and the arcade was the biggest hit for my 10 year old. The beach is walking distance, just outside of the property. We hope to be back on a regular basis!
Gillian J.Sep 2015
helpful, friendly reception staff at Diamond Beach, so helpful! Had few issues with fire alarms activating late one night, but dealt with well. Lots of Mosquitos around lazy river, when we stayed late August, but not sure if anyone can do anything to keep them away!
Great facilities, staff and location.
Amy D.Aug 2015
Condo was clean and well stocked, location was perfect, pools were amazing, will be back next year!
Jeff P.Aug 2015
Perfect condo for our family. Pool was amazing, especially the lazy river. Took only about 5 minutes to walk to a great beach.
The condo was clean and had a great kitchen with anything you would need to eat meals in.
This condo definitely met and even exceeded our expectations.
Kathryn R.Aug 2015
Condo and property was amazing! Will definitely stay here again. The only negative thing that happened was we had our cloth cooler and beach towel stollen. We accidently left it over night down by lazy river. In the morning we figured one of the grounds employees picked it up and turned it in to lost and found. That was not the case. So either someone staying there took it or someone jumped the property fence. Other then that it was a great vacation spot!
Brandon W.Jul 2015
Nice three bedroom condo but could use better maintenance and maids. Some lights worked others didn't and the cleanliness of the condo and the definitely the balcony could be better. The Balcony needs a good power washing.
Erica J.Jul 2015
This condo was bright and cheery, very well decorated and furnished with all the conveniences of home. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Christi G.Jul 2015
We love Diamond beach. This is our second visit to this resort. The amenities are wonderful. We were a little disappointed that the floors in our condo were not that clean. Our 11 month old's knees & toes were black from crawling on the floor. Yuck! Also, when we first arrived there were only 4-5 towels in the entire condo. No washcloths at all. That does not work for 6 people that are staying 3 nights. We did receive towels after we had to call the people we reserved from, about an hour after. However, they smelled like cigarette smoke. Ew! The TV in the living room was not working, thankfully my husband is electronic savy & got it working for us.
Overall we enjoyed our stay. But the cleanliness of our condo was not up to par.
Stephanie P.Jun 2015
This condo was great. Very comfortable, well furnished, and the kitchen was perfect for us because we cooked every meal during our stay. They had everything we needed and then some.
Usha V.May 2015
This was the first vacation we took with our 1 yr old. We had a great experience at Diamond Beach Resort! The condo was nicely decorated, functional, and comfortable. The kitchen was nicely stocked with everything you need. The pool was nice (though a little cold in May) with kiddy pool section for our little one to splash around. There was also access to the sea wall for nice long walks, and access to the beach. The favorite for family that visited us was the lazy river, many hours were spent there! We also made us of the game room and movie theater room. This is a great place for families!
Karen L.Apr 2015
Perfect...didn't want to leave!
Amy D.Apr 2015
Everything was perfect! We will defintely be staying here again and using Vacasa to book.
Melissa W.Mar 2015
Omg we loved this place!! It's very nice and clean and the beds were so comfy. The weather was very cold and cloudy so we spent all of our time at the condo and we enjoyed ourselves...we really liked the game room and everyone was so nice...I loved the music hookups it was plus to get to turn music on in any room..and the view was perfect and lots privacy which is also a big plus..so yes we will definitely be back!! Thank you!!
Stacie C.Feb 2015
This is a very nice condo and rental property. Tons of cool things to do on site like game room, movie theatre and fabulous pool
John L.Jan 2015
The family and I had a great time at Diamond Beach. We travel quite frequently and I have to say that Diamond Beach is without a doubt the best condo we have ever vacationed at. The only thing the condo lacked was a toaster and an iron...but other than that it was exceptional.
