The pool, lazy river, and hot tubs were just what we needed to go with our time on the beach! We will return!

We rented this unit so we could spend some quality time with our son and family who live in S.E. Houston. Our twin five-year-old grand daughters loved the place, and so did we. The amenities were enjoyed very much by all, especially the pools and lazy river. We had no significant issues with the unit at all. It was clean and very functional. We had to have the hallway bathroom worked on a couple times (leaky stool, installed new rubber flapper in toilet and A/C condensation was very drippy once). Altogether, we had a wonderful time and would consider renting again.

We were here the 2nd week of March for our spring break with our 3 teenage kids.

The photos are dated ~ the entire condo has been completely updated and is so fresh and inviting. Far nicer than we were expecting, which was great!!

Check-in on 2nd level to get keys. Park inside the underground area but go to the far left side. The elevator isn’t as busy and it’s slightly closer to the unit.

The overall property has a ton of amenities and is really well managed. Also secure/safe with fob access required to get into building, pool area, etc. Incredible views from the outdoor deck; I was worried that the seawall road would be in the way or an eyesore, but not at all.

Beach access is literally steps away; walk through the gate on the far right side near the sand volleyball court and walk 20 steps down a path and you’re there. If you plan on spending lots of time at the beach, be sure to bring along chairs, umbrella, etc. We expected there would be one of those beach chair rental companies and there was not.

There’s a small strip-mall across the road behind the building with a gas-station-type shop and a local coffee shop, but it’s a pretty busy road and not real easy to cross. We did have a small delivery of groceries through doordash one evening which was convenient. But plan on needing your vehicle to get everywhere. Still 100% worth it versus the other places that are across the street from the beach but can walk to shops etc. Everything here was quieter and less busy compared to what we could see at all the others.

I would also suggest bringing along an Amazon fire stick to do streaming for movies etc in the evening. Easy to setup and connect to the units WiFi.

Finally, my only complaint is that there was no toilet paper in the unit when we arrived. I’m sure it was an oversight, but kinda inconvenient! Tried to email the company that does the vrbo (Vacasa), but didn’t get a response. We went and got our own, so not really a big deal. I also suppose we could have asked the folks on 2nd floor and they would have had some.

In Galveston, go fishing and dolphin tours with SeaPlay Charters. Go golfing at Moody Gardens. Eat at Katie’s and HuliHuli. FishermansWharf and Salsas restaurants were underwhelming.

Overall this was an A+ experience for us. Our first trip to Galveston and the property was everything we had hoped for. Clean, inviting, secure, accessible, and comfortable! Highly recommend!!
Manager response:
Jacob, thank you for the review after your stay at Diamond Beach Resort: Seawall Stunner. We are so glad to hear you had such a wonderful vacation. You are right, the toilet paper was an oversight. We furnish a starter package of toilet paper, a roll of paper towels and soaps. Please remember you can call us 24/7 for any needs or issues. We are sorry your email was not addressed during your stay. We look forward to hosting you again! Thank you!

The weekend was great.

The view is the best
Caressa H. Jul 2021
Loved the pool and the external amenities. This unit was terrible. It was dirty, lights not working, no fan in living and no internet was a big problem. I had read the reviews that the internet did not work but, assumed it would be working. I called vacasa and got the run around and nothing was fixed. Very unfortunate since this rental was expensive. This unit needs some serious attention before they rent out again.
Manager response:
Hello Caressa, we apologize for the issues you experienced during your stay. We apologize for the breakdown in communication. The internet issue has been reported to management and the owners for follow up. The lights, and the fans have been resolved.

Great view, furnished nicely. Enjoyed the lazy river, etc. beds were comfy. Great kitchen too.

The condo had great living and dining space, with ample seating in both. The kitchen had good appliances, including regular and Keurig coffee makers. The only reason for 4 rather than 5 stars is the bedding in the master bedroom. Mattress, pillows, and sheets all need an upgrade.
Patrick R. May 2021
Let’s start with the home. Very nice condo, with an amazing view. All the amenities we needed for our four night stay. Plenty of room for the 5 of us. The master bed is terrible. I opted to sleep on the couch instead. My wife and I both thought it felt like a box spring with no mattress. The other beds are much better. This was the only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5. But when you can’t sleep it makes for a long trip. The code for the WiFi was not correct, but we figured it out. The fan in the living room does not work, so we kept it fairly cold instead. The washer and dryer were great to have especially with going to the beach daily. Now the building. The instructions to get in were perfect. Easily followed. The front desk person was very short and to the point. When I said I had never been here before she rattled off information so quickly I didn’t get anything from it. I left slightly confused. Reading the information she gave me was much easier than talking to her. Everything in the building is convenient but with a walk. The game room was perfect to mess around in before our private movie. We brought our own movie and the staff got everything ready for us. The pools were awesome. Lazy river too. Something for everyone. The slide was not running and one of the hot tubs was closed, but we went when it wasn’t busy and almost had the entire pool to ourselves at times. It is a bit of a walk to the beach, and there is access through the complex. But if you had difficulty getting around, or a stroller I could see it being hard due to the sand path you follow to get there. The building is conveniently located. Not within walking distance for most things, but within a short drive you can get anything. It is not on the touristy end of the island, but you can get to anything within 10-15 minutes. I would definitely stay here again if it had a different bed. But I would stay in the building again for sure.
Manager response:
Hi, Patrick! The fan in the living room works when controlled by the provided remote. The property manager checked the WiFi information provided and verified it is correct. Thank you for staying with us!
Amit P. May 2021
I would give this place 5 stars if they would have had basic spices available to the renters. So pool towels and beach towels would be great also.

We'll be back again this summer

We loved the condo and everything else.
