Experience amazing resort amenities and phenomenal sunrise and sunset views over the Gulf of Mexico at Diamond Beach 7PH-3 - Italian Villa. This gorgeous two-bedroom, two-bath penthouse, wows with rich jewel tones, opulent fabrics and ornate design reminiscent of a Tuscany coastal villa. You’ll love the arch-covered balcony that looks out over the lush manicured grounds, outdoor pool and lazy river of Diamond Beach Resort. Diamond Beach Resort is a five-star luxury getaway, located on Galveston’s quieter west end at the end of the famed Seawall. Fun-filled days await you with the resort’s cascading infinity pool and lazy river (please note that guests will need to bring their own tubes.) In peak season, enjoy the swim-up bar and grill and waterslide. Reserve cabanas and BBQ grills, and the movie theater for private viewings. Relax your cares away with two hot tubs or play a game of beach volleyball. You’ll also find an indoor pool, game room, fitness center, business center and more at this gated beachfront resort.

With the Gulf of Mexico as your backyard, head down to the renowned Seawall where you can walk, bike or skate while exploring local beaches as well as local shops and dining. Or spend the day on the sugar sands and emerald Gulf waters sunbathing, splashing in the waves and beachcombing. There’s plenty of fun to be had in Galveston. Take the plunge down one of the many waterslides at Schlitterbahn Waterpark. Or learn about marine life at the Moody Gardens Aquarium. Enjoy nostalgic thrill rides and old-fashioned midway games over the Gulf of Mexico at Pleasure Pier. Reel in that big catch off the Galveston Fishing Pier or rent surfboards and learn how to hang ten with a beginner’s class. Savor waterfront dining at Jimmy’s on the Pier or the upscale Grotto Ristorante.

Step inside Diamond Beach 7PH-3 - Italian Villa to abundant natural light filtering in from the wall of floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding glass doors. Head out to the oversized balcony where you’ll have a bird’s eye view of the resort and coastline. Furnished with outdoor cushioned seating, you’ll want to spend as much time as possible out there in the coastal breeze, breathing the salty sea air. Revel in birdsong and coffee during the sunrise, afternoon naps in the warm air and cocktails at sunset.

Sumptuous furnishings surround a large HDTV and carved fireplace in the living room. Enjoy movie nights and card games together, curl up with a great book or connect your device to the free Wi-Fi to share photos with loved ones back home.

A cozy dining nook with a round table and tufted seating provides a space to enjoy great conversation and meals together. Prepare them together too, in the galley-style kitchen featuring stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, an oversized kitchen island that doubles as a bar counter, and wine storage. The cabinets are filled with all the cookware, dishware, utensils and kitchen gadgets you’ll need to prepare your favorite recipes. You’ll find two seats at the bar for casual dining or use the space to serve meals buffet style. Your party of six will have sweet dreams in Diamond Beach 7PH-3 - Italian Villa’s elegant bedrooms. Boasting a gorgeous king-size four-poster bed, flat screen TV and armoire storage, the primary bedroom is a haven of rest and relaxation. The ensuite primary bathroom features dual sinks at the large vanity and a glass door walk-in shower. The second bedroom is outfitted with a plush queen-size bed and flat screen TV. This penthouse condo has an additional queen-size rollaway inflatable bed, perfect for two. A second spacious bathroom houses a combination tub and shower. A stacked full-size washer and dryer makes it easy to have clean clothes throughout your stay.

Do not rent this property until the owner gets another key and fob. It’s way to constricting for everyone with only one key and fob. The fob is used to open sliding doors to elevators and get you into the pools and open the gate to get you back in from the beach. Unless you are with your group the whole time this becomes EXTREMELY inconvenient!

Thanks for taking the time to let us know how we can improve the guest experience, Carol! Our team has purchased additional key fobs based on your advice, and we hope to make your next stay even more enjoyable.

Nice place. Big room great for 6 people. Nice balcony. Would recommend staying there. But a few quirky things Ryson should know if describing this property to others. The roll out bed is an inflatable. The balcony was full of furniture. There are throw pillows everywhere (inside and on the balcony) and more in the closet. The shag carpet in the main bathroom is a bit different. Who do you ever know if a shag carpet is clean? The main bedroom bed is very tall. An older person may have trouble getting out of. My wife had to use a stool. I had to slide out of the bed. There is only one dresser in the entire place. The guest room has no dresser or closet. The TV in the guest room is on a table, not a dresser. Seems liked there is a missed opportunity there. The balcony door is hard to open. Watch out for the guest bed frame. Sticks out quite a bit and more than one person in our party hit their leg on it. But, like I said, quirky stuff. It is a nice place overall. And only 4 hangers in the one closet. Rather hard for a place that holds six.

Hi, Steven, and thanks so much for this review! We rely on guest feedback, so we appreciate you letting us know how we can improve the guest experience. Following your recommendation, we have added a new chest of drawers. And along with routine steam cleanings throughout the year, guests can rest assured that the carpets are thoroughly cleaned before they arrive.

Communication is non-existent. I emailed the property through the vtrips link provided and never received a response.

We pride ourselves on being responsive to our guests, Nicki, and we've reviewed this reservation for training purposes to ensure a better experience the next time around.

I have no issues with the condo but more of the property. This is our third time staying. We were told when we last stayed, they will be fixing the slide and thought other amenities would be opening.

Chad, we wanted to thank you for staying with us over the years, as we've enjoyed hosting you. And we regret to hear we missed the mark with the slide, but we'll be sure to have it fully operational for your next visit.
