Palisade Palms – Galvestons Finest Condos
I just got home from spending a relaxing weekend in Galveston. A friend of mine recently purchased a two bedroom two bath condo at Palisade Palms on Galvestons East Beach, and let us borrow it for the weekend. It was absolutely incredible, no detail was overlooked when the Falcon Group built these two towers. The beach front residences boast an oppulent entry, coffee bar, gameroom/media center, a state of the art fitness center, tennis courts, and a swimming pool with enough lounge chairs for everyone!
The location of the building is perfect! It is a short drive to Galvestons historic downtown strand district. We ate at some of our favortie restaurants on the island: Rudy & Pacos, Mosquito Cafe and the steakhouse inside the San Luis Hotel. It is exactly 3 miles from the front door of Palisades to the Starbucks off the strand, if you are up for a morning jog!
Galveston in my opinion is better than ever after IKE. Yes, there are still a few blue tarps on roofs scattered aroud town, but for the most part Galveston looks GREAT! It is amazing to see the plaques at many of the shopping and dining establishements denoting how high the water rose during hurricane IKE.
If you are looking to rent a place in Galveston over the summer, or even buy a place…. I would strongly suggest taking a look at Palisade Palms - You will be impressed - Check out my website for listings: http://www.mckenziedrake.com
