Located about eight miles from the Strand, this luxurious resort is its own private oasis. Guests will have a countless array of relaxing options to choose from, including reading or sunbathing poolside to strolling the beach.
This cozy and intimate condo offers peaceful refuge to small family or a group of friends traveling together. Besides all the shared common space to mingle, you'll have your own private balcony to lounge on - make sure to catch a sunrise over the Gulf with a warm mug and a blanket.
Enjoy gatherings in the pretty living room with lush carpet and beachy furniture. Read in the lounge chair, or gather around for a movie night on the flatscreen TV, which offers cable and a DVD player, including movies to chose from. Bring a set of playing cards or Bananagrams to play at the coffee table with pull-out seats, or have a quiet game of Solitaire at the dinette against the window. Get any last-minute work done with the provided WiFi.
Move from beach to contemporary urban living with this updated kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and blonde-wood cabinetry. Eat at the breakfast bar for four, or out on the patio with a sea breeze and pool views. A gas grill is also available for your use.
Head to bed in this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home. Enjoy a master suite with a king-size bed with beach-themed decor, plus a Serta iCloud mattress for extra comfort. The guest room is bright and cheery with a queen bed and more beachy decor - perfect for a couple to share, or a young adult. And if you have kids traveling with you, the third bedroom is well-suited for them with a twin-over-full bunk bed.
In total, this home will sleep seven people comfortably.
When you're not lounging in your temporary home, you'll want to beat the Texas heat poolside - and with several kinds of pools to choose from, you'll never get too hot. Grab a floatie and work your way down the 750-foot lazy river, or meander your way to the seasonal pool. Take your teenager to the game room or the indoor pool, and let your kids run wild in the indoor play area, watch a movie at the theater. Since the ocean is within view, and this resort has a private stretch of beach, you can always head down for some fun on the sand and surf.
And when you need a break from resort life, head to the Strand for dining, shopping, and attractions like Schlitterbahn Waterpark and Moody Gardens for golfing. Take a walking tour of the East End, where historical architecture has been preserved.

Wow, Diamond Beach is awesome.
Shawanna P.Sep 2020
I loved this condo and would definitely stay again. It was very clean and was plenty of space. The pool was wonderful and I liked having access to the beach. I really loved the view. We didn't use all the buildings amenities but we appreciated the availability. Only two things could have made it better... the balcony floor was kinda dirty and the pots and pains can use an upgrade. We made it work regardless and would rent this unit again.
Stacey C.Sep 2020
Diamond Beach is very nice
Mark H.Sep 2020

Justin W.Jun 2020
Great condo, location, and amenities! My family with 3 young ones loved the pools, lazy river, easy beach access, and game room. Condo was equipped with everything we needed to cook nice meals. We will be returning to this condo for future vacations!
Ronald B.May 2020
Very clean, well stocked with essentials. Amenities at Diamond Beach were perfect for a family with a toddler. My 20 month old loved the pool and the lazy river.

Gary H.Jan 2020
Believe the pix. Very nice condo in a really nice building, with a game room, indoor pool, theater room, bar, wine room, large exercise room, hot tubs, etc. Super large balcony overlooking pool and ocean. For those new to galveston (this was our first trip), most other places seem to have a road between you and the beach. This place does not. There's a large lot on the other side of the fence, but you can't see it from the balcony. And you can easily walk to a very nice, wide sand beach on the other side of the fence (without crossing any roads). We went in Dec, so didn't have the best weather, but nice enough for golf, and all the indoor stuff came in handy. Wasn't very crowded, so can't say what it's like in high season, but again, really nice place.
Anke L.Jan 2020
Great appartment with pool and ocean view and big patio. All the amenities you can think off in the complex. We loved the hot tub, workout room, and the game room. Very close to the Strand, Moody Gardens, grocery stores, restaurants, etc..
We definitely would stay there again.

Laura C.Jun 2019
I was shocked that a resort such as this is sooo close to Houston. I was there with four young teens and they loved the pool and lazy river and game room. The weather was perfect. I loved the pool and chairs and lazy river. The unit was great. No issues. Very clean.
Anna L.May 2019

Sue C.Dec 2018
Enjoyed the condo and all the various things to do at Diamond Beach. Had 2 young adult grandsons and they found lots of things to occupy their time
Erika Z.Oct 2018
Clean, lovely condo on the beach. Spacious, great pool, workout room, and other amenities. My family couldn't get enough of the lazy river.
Ryan F.Oct 2018
Overall, we loved it. Great pool area and nice room. Only minor issue was that the beach directly in front of the resort isn't really usable as there are large rocks that make it impossible to adequately access, even when the tide is out. So not necessarily "walking distance" to nice beach, but it's a short drive down Seawall to beach areas, so it's not a deal breaker.
Overall, a great stay, and we wouldn't hesitate to go back.
Teri W.Aug 2018
Quick check in, great security but laid back and the pool and lazy river where amazing.
Linda S.Aug 2018
Great clean condo with a great view. Pool & Lazy River spectacular. Easy access to beach. Staff very helpful & friendly. Security appreciated. Loved our stay.
Elizabeth W.Jul 2018
THREE GENERATIONS OF OUR FAMILY, HAD A GREAT TIME!
Eryn E.Jul 2018
We had a great time. Love the lazy river and pool area. Steps to the beach. Our condo was clean and spacious. I recommend it.
Daniel S.Jul 2018
Staff was friendly and helpful. Grounds were very well taken care of with great amenities for all ages.
Being the end of the Seawall, it takes a few minutes to get into town for dinner and attractions but that adds a bit of seclusion that many would enjoy.
Middle bedroom mattress was not comfortable but that is our only complaint.
Can’t give it a perfect 5 stars but would definitely recommend to others and would (probably will) book again.
Patsy C.May 2018
Loved the condo.loved how clean all was and loved the security. We had three condos and all were great. It was great!!

Loved our stay so much we extended it after arriving. Took our homeschooled kids in mid-September and we were the only ones on the resort for most of the week!
Debbie J.Aug 2017
We could not have been more pleased with the unit we stayed in - room 309, Vacasa listing #2288. View was beautiful, room was in great condition, property is kept extremely clean. The huge pool and the lazy river were wonderful and also kept very clean. We have been to Destin and Panama City, Florida and to Gulf Shores, Alabama and stayed in very nice condos everywhere we've been. We have never stayed anywhere I've been more pleased with than Diamond Beach. We will definitely go back!
Jill L.Jul 2017
We have stayed at Diamond Beach in Galveston many times. Each time we are very pleased with the experience. The accommodations are upscale, yet comfortable and inviting. The amenities are numerous and offer something for everyone. The staff is friendly and helpful. Our family keeps returning year after year and leaves very satisfied every year!
Brian Mi & Vivian F.May 2017
Our family loved the condo. It slept 8 very comfortably. Location was great!!! The ONLY draw back and this has nothing to do with condo or Vacasa is that Diamond Beach staff doesn't rack the seaweed. It was so bad we couldn't enjoy the private beach. We drove to a better location. The condo itself is amazing and I took 2 months picking one out. Manager for property was great,I had a few questions through out our stay and he also answered phone or text messages. Kitchen was completed with all the necessary utensils for cooking and then some. They also have toys,dVd's/blow up mattress/boogie boards to use! 1st come 1st serve on grill but we didn't have a problem on Saturday. You can rent a grill or a Cabana which we did the Cabana full day. Well worth it if you have kiddos.
We also got the movie theater 2 nights. Savannah loved the playroom and the older kids loved the game room.
Indoor pool was heated and great for when it rained,which it did. Overall 5 star ⭐️
Jill M.May 2017
Love the pool and lazy river. Great for people of all ages.
Gabriela M.May 2017

Upscale, great pool and lazy river.
Jean P.Aug 2016
We had an awesome time. The resort is very kid friendly and safe. We took our grandsons ages 5 & 6 and they had a ball. Our 6 year old is autistic and it was wonderful to see him be able to run around and have fun like all the other kids were doing. Our condo #309 was 1st class. We will definitely be going back and will book through Vacasa!
Melanie E.Aug 2016
Galveston is a great vacation destination. Diamond beach condo is great. Everything you need on the property. We will definitely be back!
Marilyn C.Jul 2016

Diamond Beach has a very nice property located conveniently close to other attractions and activities. Grocery store near a WalMart conveniently close too. Very nice facilities, very clean, safe, with nice on-site activities. Serves well as a base of operations for enjoying all Galveston has to offer. Staff very friendly and helpful.
Margarita T.May 2016
Good time with family. Enjoyed.
Phyllis H.Mar 2016
Overall we loved this place and the location. The amenities were great, there was something for everyone. We will be back. Outstanding staff. Thank you
Carol M.Mar 2016
Overall nice place. Too cold and windy in March. No headed pools outside. One inside but kids didn't want to be in doors. Not within walking distance to much at all. Need a car for sure. But one of the most beautiful pools I've ever seen!! And view from condo was awesome!! Water slide also but only open on Saturday and Sunday. So if u r traveling Saturday to Saturday not so great.
Robin G.Mar 2016
Diamond Resort is a great vacation spot for families. The condos are very nice and roomy. The pool area is beautiful. There are a lot of things to do. I will be staying there again.
Maureen R.Feb 2016
We were on a business trip and rented a 3 bedroom unit for everyone to be able to stay together. It was Amazing...I highly recommend it. We plan to go back during the summer to enjoy all of the pools,waterslides and etc that the resort has to offer.
Great vacation getaway. lots of high end amenities
Mary T.Dec 2015
Beautiful place withe great view of the beach and pool. Stay was marred by less than helpful & rude staff. Would not recommend going to Diamond Beach during the Winter season. Advertised amenities not available. For the price, we were expecting better service.
Wanda R.Sep 2015
We always love returning to this property. It is very well kept and the condos share an amazing view of the pool and ocean. The unit we stayed in was in outstanding condition and made us feel right at home. Will definitely stay here again.
Krystle S.Aug 2015
We had a wonderful family vacation here. Vacasa staff and front desk staff were all very helpful with any issues and questions. Loved going to the pool, lazy river and slide with the kids. We also enjoyed the very short walk to the beach just outside the fenced area. So easy to do everything with big kids and a baby. Thank you! We will be back!
Kyle K.Jun 2015
Started out early the day of check-in needing to print out tickets to Schlitterbahn after buying on-line. Stopped by Diamond Beach and asked if they could help. They could not have been more accommodating even before we checked in. Had occasion to deal with three other ladies at concierge desk and all very much the same attitude and willingness to help.
Could not get the router to connect to any wireless device. Called Vacsa and was given the number of local rep on a Sunday evening. He walked me through the fix and offered to come out if that did not work. Was able to reset device and worked perfectly the remainder of the trip.
Love it when people seem to at least like their job if not love it even though they may not like dealing with problems and are willing to work with you and solve it as painlessly as possible.
Christine T.May 2015
Loved the proximity to the beach and each unit has a gorgeous view. We used the activity room, game room, indoor heated pool and outdoor pools. Loved all of it. Excellent facility, perfect for families. Super clean, very helpful staff. This is our new Galveston home away from home.
