Celebrate a landmark anniversary or host your next big family reunion at this luxurious Gulf Coast condo with gourmet kitchen, furnished wraparound balcony, and on-site resort amenities including swimming pools, a lazy river, hot tub, fitness center, game room, and even a movie theater.

This three-bedroom, deluxe penthouse is located right off Termini-San Luis Pass Road overlooking the southern end of Seawall Boulevard and miles of adjacent sandy beach. Cast a line off the Galveston Fishing Pier just a mile up the road and try your hand at reeling in speck, sand trout, gafftopsail catfish, and whiting. Or take the family up to the Schlitterbahn Waterpark Galveston for waterslides aplenty, only three miles away.

Step through the front door and into a breathtaking open-concept condo where the living area, dining area, and gourmet kitchen all share the same bright and airy space.

Loved the location, the beach access, the pools, the privacy, the room was spectacular, well stocked and my family loved the space, absolutely will book here again. Thank you Vacasa.
Susan H. Aug 2021
We had a great relaxing week with our family. You’ll enjoy the views and amenities of this unit. This is our second time to stay at Diamond Beach. The unit we rented last summer was fantastic but this unit was spectacular! Take the plunge. It’s worth the expense.
Catherine S. Aug 2021
The view amazing and lazy river fun.
Heather D. Jul 2021
Several things wrong, only a couple things could be fixed while we were there. It’s a nice condo but definitely feel like we didn’t get our money’s worth between damage by past renters and the owner’s lack of upkeep or concern for making sure everything was as it should be.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Heather. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the home, but regret that the condition did not meet your expectations. Please know this is not the standard grade of presentation that we provide, and that we take this feedback seriously. We are working with our local staff to address the issues in this home and appreciate you bringing this to our attention, as this helps us to improve the quality of experiences we provide for our future guests.

The condo was clean, almost everything was open, and the views were awesome. We highly recommend thisnolace!
Bryan W. May 2021
Everything you need for a great vacation is right there pretty much she don’t have to go anywhere else highly recommended five star
Jana R. May 2021
Unfortunately, I was not totally happy with the stay. The condo was nice, however the towels were not quality. They were very cheat and rough!! The pools were not cleaned adequately. Pool maintenance was there working on them, but never really got them cleaned as expected. The sofa was very uncomfortable and seemed like it was worn out. When you sat on it the cushions would not support you, you just sank into the middle. Since I chose the penthouse and paid the extra for it, I expected much more and definitely better quality.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Jana! We appreciate you taking the time to provide your critical and valuable feedback. We apologize that the condition of the home left something to be desired, as well as its furnishings. We will be sure to relay your comments to our local property caretaker to follow up on. We hope we may have the opportunity to host you again in the future!
Suzanne F. May 2021
We love the lazy river and all the extras at this complex!
Sagar D. Mar 2021
Very clean, opens up to beach and beautiful view with all amenities. Would recommend to stay here for hassle free vacation.
John H. Mar 2021
Some of the pools were still being repaired after the storm but we were given a partial refund for that. Everyone was very apologetic about it. It was a rough deal all the way, We made the most of it.
Teresa L. Feb 2021
The view can't be beat
KAREN I. Feb 2021
The view from this penthouse is GORGEOUS!!!
Loved all the rooms! Shower in master bedroom was amazing! Will be staying here again for sure!
justin s. Jan 2021
Excellent amenities in the resort top off the gorgeous beachfront view as well as the modern amenities inside the condo. Pots and pans could use updating, as they are cheapies that are severely warped. Outside that absolutely 0 complaints for a self isolation on the beach.
Manager response:
Justin, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your valuable feedback with us. We passed your comments regarding the kitchenware along to our local manager to review. We look forward to hosting you again!
Rebecca T. Jan 2021
We think it is the best place on the island.
Jessica A. Dec 2020
Perfect location in building. Close to everything. Comfortable and cozy. We really enjoyed having Christmas in your home. Very clean.
Patti E. Dec 2020
If this is available book it. Diamond Beach is amazing.
Minna B. Dec 2020
Loved the condo, beautiful view, beach access easy and close, amenities ( 2 outside hot tubs and 1 indoor heated pool with temps you can enjoy) game room enjoyed by all and the fitness room was large and many machines to work on. The facility was clean and well keep. We all had a wonderful time. Only 2 issues we had , checkout should be layer than 10 am and the full bed in the guest room the mattress needs replaced , when 2 people in the bed you both roll to the center dip. Otherwise this place is fantastic.
Norman D. Nov 2020
From the time you open the door and walk in ! the place is breathtaking !! . My BEAUTIFUL WOMAN ! and I wanted a place to getaway and celebrate my birthday that wasn't to far and provided us with everything ! without leaving the property and this property met and exceeded those needs. The views from the living area and bedrooms are breathtaking !! . We loved the views from the kitchen as you cooked and ate . There was 1 small hiccup , the fact that the TV's in the guest rooms WERE NOT working and NO CABLE :-( . The main TV and Master bedroom TV worked fine !!! . Please have those working bye my next stay with more guest 😁😁 . I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this UNIT and Property you want be disappointed, N K D .
Manager response:
Hi, Norman! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The smart TVs in the bedrooms do work, but we will check the cable situation so we can ensure guests are receiving what we promise. Thank you!
Richard R. Nov 2020
It is one of the nicest places I have ever stayed at.

Manuel F. Oct 2020
Very nice place.
Allison D. Sep 2020
Lovely condo with amazing amenities
Suzanna M. Sep 2020
The Penthouse in Paradise blew away our expectations. On our way down to the gulf, we were a bit nervous for our vacation, as a tropical storm was leaving just as we were arriving. We met a couple who had stayed at the Diamond Beach Resort, and they told us no matter the weather, we would have plenty to do at the resort. They were right. It was a dream for our kids, ages 16, down to 9. The game room, the theatre, the indoor pool, and the massive pool and lazy river system just outside kept us more than entertained when the beach was a no go.

As for the unit itself, it was luxury, comfort, and a stunning view, all in one. Too many amenities to list: the sleep number bed in the master, the rain shower and jacuzzi, the ample space for kids to sleep, the perfect configuration, the easy cooking kitchen, the comfortable seating on the spacious did feel like paradise.

We are so pleased, and glowing with the memories of our trip. Highly recommend!!!
Alena S. Sep 2020
We were happy we chose this place
Melissa D. Sep 2020
The condo was very clean. We enjoyed it
Colleen E. Sep 2020

The lazy river
Manager response:
Hi Linda, Thank you for your feedback. We regret we don't have more information regarding your areas of concern, as we are always happy to know how we can provide a more pleasant stay for our guests. We hope we have the chance to impress you in the future. Thank you
Oswaldo F. Aug 2020
We liked the walks on the beach
Tanya S. Aug 2020
Very nice condo, well appointed. Master bed was comfortable, great rain shower. This unit is located on lazy river side facing the beach access so it felt more secluded which was great. The big open concept living/dining/kitchen was great and the panoramic view was awesome. A bit expensive but you get what you pay for and I have zero regrets.
Rachel K. Aug 2020
The love the beach access and the lazy river
Misty W. Aug 2020
My husband and our two grandkids loved this condo! It sleeps 8 (including sleeper sofa), so it felt very spacious for just the four of us. This was our second time to stay at Diamond Beach Resort, but our first stay in this unit. It’s very luxurious and conveniently located on the 3rd floor at the west end of the resort, with outstanding views of the Gulf and relaxing lazy river. The private movie theater and huge fitness center are on the west end on the 4th floor which made working out and entertainment easy breezy. It definitely has that “wow” factor we were looking for. In fact, our grandson exclaimed “WOW!” as we entered the unit, and immediately FaceTimed his parents to give them a virtual tour! All the beds were quite comfortable too. Please note that the security alarm will chirp about 15 seconds when you leave each time and lock the door, but be assured that it does cease after about 15 seconds. We’ll definitely return!
Mary S. Jul 2020
Our family absolutely loved this resort and condo. It was super kid friendly and also relaxing. We did NOT want to leave and can't wait to come back next summer and stay even longer.
Tracy H. Jul 2020
Our condo was amazing! It had 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. The layout of the condo was open so we didn’t feel like we were crammed. It was spacious enough for the 6 of us and we still had plenty of room. It was very clean, the beds were comfortable, the master bathroom had a large tub and shower. The view from our balcony was beautiful. You could see the beach during the day and hear the waves at night. Very relaxing. I wasn’t expecting the room to look as nice as the photos on the website, it was better. I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of the whole property and the friendliness of the staff. The swimming pools were gorgeous and we loved the lazy river. My children were able to play in the game room while we waited out the tropical storm/ hurricane. I will definitely be staying again.
michelle a. Jul 2020
Loved the lazy river.
Billy P. Jul 2020
It was great! Very clean and had a beautiful view! The perfect size for our family! Plenty of stuff to do at the resort! We had everything we needed to cook every night! Very peaceful! We will definitely be back!
Le T. Jul 2020
We had a great stay with my wife, 2yr old, and 10month old. Check in was fast, the condo was very clean, and my kids loved the lazy river and pool. We ordered takeout and were able to cook a few meals but wished there was a restaurant on site. Would definitely rent again and recommend to friends!
Randy B. Jul 2020
Booked this Unit after we canceled our trip to Colorado Springs due to COVID concerns. Very comfortable balcony with gorgeous views of West Beach. We must have done the lazy river 25 times. Very relaxing mini-vacation.
Dianne C. Jun 2020
This condo was perfect and fit all our needs. The property is beautiful! Just a heads up, the property has a very strict rule that you are not allowed to use any facilities before your check-in time (ours was 4pm) and you have to leave the property at your check-out time.
Pamela S. Jun 2020
Everything went smoothly. The condo is very nice.
Sharon C. May 2020
The Lazy River was our favorite
Thomas C. May 2020
Beautiful home, loved the location, wrap-around balcony...would stay here again in a heartbeat! I wish there would have been beach towels, and the hot water was intermittent, even after letting it run for five minutes.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Thomas! We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We apologize for the trouble with the hot water; it is working well at this time. We are looking forward to your next visit!
Kelly R. Mar 2020
The resort and condo are both very nice.

Catherine F. Dec 2019
Great view and just a short walk across the boardwalk to the beach.
Sharon C. Nov 2019
All the comforts of home in a beautifully-appointed vacation villa. We loved our stay here and are already planning a return visit. Many amenities, something for the entire family. If you choose this unit, you won’t be disappointed.
Gregory F. Oct 2019

DAVID T. Oct 2019
Fantastic views. Great pool and lazy river. Grounds kept beautiful.
Austin W. Sep 2019
We had the best experience here! We came during a storm and we were so lucky there was an indoor pool and playroom for our kids! They loved it! The condo was so quiet, couldn’t hear any outside noises. Bed was so comfortable and master shower was wonderful. It was a very spacious unit and great view! We’d definitely come again and recommend to others!
Bobby M. Sep 2019
Been here several times. Always awesome!
Amanda T. Sep 2019
The unit was very good overall. It’s on the 3rd floor, not top floor so not sure why it’s titled ‘penthouse’. Great location in the building, great view, spacious, nice decor and comfortable. Just a couple small things that didn’t work 100% right such as ceiling fans not going to high, keypad on front door would randomly sounds an ‘alarm’, safety lock on front door didn’t work. These small things were the only reason I didn’t give 5 star. I would definitely rent this unit again though.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Amanda! We are pleased to know that you enjoyed your stay. This luxurious Gulf Coast condo is considered a penthouse because of its prime location, spaciousness, and incredible views. We apologize for any trouble experienced while operating the fan, and the entry door lock. We are happy to report that our maintenance team has found both features to be working properly. Please note, the front door has an added safety feature and will beep when the lock is disengaged; this sound is simply letting you know that the door is not locked, for your safety. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
Jamie D. Sep 2019
Great view condo was so beautiful there was plenty of room its really big and spaces the condo is way better then the pic online patio was awesome the views or amazing great condo

ASHLEY H. Jul 2019
Lazy river, theater, cabanas,
Jarod H. Jul 2019
nice views from the balcony.
Nancy M. Jul 2019
The beach and the lazy river are a good way to spend some time relaxing.
Adrian H. Jul 2019
Our family enjoyed the stay - the condo had all of the amenities to make it easy living, plus it is a very short drive away to all the popular attractions at the Island. The pool & lazy river were also top-notch and ended up being more popular with my kids than the beach.
Peggy M. Jun 2019
This condo was perfect! My family had the best time here! It’s gorgeous! The resort is amazing! We had lots of rain while there so we made use of the indoor pool, game room and theater.
This condo is on the 3rd floor, not the top floor. It had a great view of the lazy river and could also see the ocean. The balcony is huge! A great place to sit and enjoy the outside. It was never in direct sun, what a plus that was! I look forward renting this condo again!
Vicki M. May 2019
We loved the views..
the spaciousness of the condo..
Great bed rooms
The balcony has a awesome view and very spacious
It was clean and had all the items needed for a big family
The Only thing that would put it over the top is a recliner or a big chair
But we would rent this again over and over
Loved it much
Hope to return next year!!!
Thank you
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Vicki! We are so pleased that this home provided a great gathering space for your family to enjoy. We'll pass your suggestions onto our management team for consideration. We look forward to hosting you again!
Lorena L. May 2019
We love Diamond Beach and will come back again. Hopefully this condo will be available.
Kathy G. May 2019
Suzanne F. May 2019
We loved this beautiful condo—very spacious, and the amenities at Diamond Beach were wonderful.
Margarita S. May 2019
Diamond Beach and this condo are just the best. Christina was very helpful when we needed her.
Emily P. Apr 2019
I would highly recommend the Diamond Beach Resort for a family stay. The resort facilities are very nice, well maintained and there is plenty to do right on site. My 5 year old son enjoyed the arcade, movie theater and indoor pool. The outdoor swim areas also looked very nice, although we didn't use them due to the cooler April weather. The Penthouse was well stocked with cooking and linen essentials. For the price, the rental met our expectations.
Justin F. Jan 2019
Everything we expected. The place was just as nice as the pictures. The building was fairly empty when we were there (Jan.), but everything in and out met or exceeded our expectations. I would 100% stay here again.
Karen S. Oct 2018
Great condo, beautifully decorated and appointed. Great location in the complex. It has EVERYTHING that you'll need for a fabulous stay in Galveston! The only downfall is that the beds were not comfortable and the pillows were even worse. But, after a hard day on the beach or at the pool, you will sleep soundly.
Mark H. Sep 2018
Great view and awesome unit! Close to everything in the Condo complex
BRENDA W. Aug 2018
Location to elevator, kitchen supplies, roominess, cleanliness, deck with constant breeze and view.
Daniel N. Aug 2018
Something for everyone, and the view was amazing.
Scott R E. Aug 2018
We really loved our stay at Diamond Beach. This condo was great! Lots of things to do on the property. Plenty of room in the condo and a great view of the beach and lazy river. We appreciated the sleep number bed. We have one at home and other beds are hard to adjust too.The only thing I would suggest is a couple of comfortable chairs in living area. Thanks for a wonderful vacation! We will definitely be back!
Dianna K. Jul 2018
Condo was is very roomy and the property is beautiful.
Steven M. Jul 2018
Loved our stay at this condo. Beautifully appointed, great layout — everything was thoughtfully done. Nice to be so close to the movie theater which our kids used twice. Great location at our favorite resort!
Andrea S. Jun 2018
Beautiful condo with beach access and the view is gorgeous. The kids enjoyed the game room, cinema, lazy river and water slide. We will definitely be back!
Colette B. Jun 2018
Love Diamond Beach... loved this unit.! Third trip here....definitely the best layout for a large family.
Kevin N. Jun 2018
This condo is the best. Great balcony with view of the lazy river and beach. Easy access to the pools, lazy river, beach and game room without having to cross any busy street! We will definitely stay here again!
Kirsten D. Jun 2018
We would come back over and over!! Everything was clean and bed was sooooo comfortable
Mirriam M. May 2018
The perfect location and environment for our family. The beach access was great (didn't have to cross the street to get to it). We will return to this rental again! You will not be disappointed.
Steven B. Apr 2018
View and balcony face the lazy river, with a great view of the gulf and beach. Beautiful space, well-designed and nice furniture. We had a great time!
Janet T. Mar 2018
This place worked out great for us. I was a little concerned about the distance to the beach based on other reviews, but it was an easy and convenient walk, although I wouldn’t recommend the walk for elderly/disabled guests.

The view was great, location was great, and the kids loved the lazy river and pool (slide was not open). FYI pools are not heated but there are a couple big spas and the indoor pool was heated.

The living room furniture was not adequate, but that was our only major complaint. A nice big sectional would’ve been great for evening relaxing.

Kids loved the (free!) gameroom!

Overall we had a great visit!
Pamella A. Nov 2017
We stayed at this property for 4 nights over the Thanksgiving holiday week. We have 4 children and 3 adults and there was plenty of space for everyone to be comfortable and not on top of each other. It was a nice benefit to have the indoor pool since it was a bit too cold to be in the outdoor one, but the kids really wished that the water slide and lazy river were warm enough to play in. The view was great and the unit had a nice, fully stocked kitchen. The game room was great for the kids! Would love to go back and stay again.
Sheila S. Nov 2017
Great property and even better view!
Sheila B. Sep 2017
The room has an awesome view but stating it was the Penthouse, I assumed it was on the top floor. It was on 3rd floor in an 7 story Condominium?!? The property is nice but the Front Office staff truly needs to be better trained on Customer Service.
Cortney D. Sep 2017
We just stayed in the Penthouse in Paradise (4 adults and 2 children) and loved the condo itself and the property overall. The proximity to the beach is great, but be advised it's a bit of a steep path down to the beach which was a little tricky for one of our vacationers who had an ankle brace. The pools and lazy river were totally amazing, the best I've experienced at any resort in my life. They made it very enjoyable for both the adults and kids and we never got bored there. We'll definitely be back again sometime soon!
Sandra A. Sep 2017
Jeff B. Sep 2017
Unit is beautiful and facilities were great and kid friendly. Plan to visit again.
Susan C. Aug 2017
the condo was beautifull., with view to match. the front desk at Diamond Beach had many strange rules and they were unhelpful. poor training of staff obvious. Water slide closed for entire day on tuesday, 8/1/2017 because of no staff to monitor it. Our condo advertised it sleeps 10, we had 9 and diamond beach stafff wold give us only 8 wristbands, their maximum for 3 bedroom condos.
Judy G. Jul 2017
The condo and facilities were nice. Kids enjoyed the pool. The beach was more rocky than sand and beach access was not that good.
Jacqueline H. Jul 2017
Beautiful grounds, rooms, and view. Did not care for the beach. But the resort was great
Kim C. Jun 2017
My family and I really enjoyed our stay here! Something to do for all ages! We loved it and will definitely return!!!
