About Jack McCormick

We have long admired the buildings and the expansive beach on the east end of Galveston. We live busy lives in Houston but look forward to relaxing and entertaining at our unit. It's short drive and once you cross the bridge you leave the big city behind. We love our walks on the beach in the early morning then hitting the pool.

Jack McCormick purchased this condo in 2015

Why Jack McCormick chose Galveston Island

We chose Palisade Palms because it is was built in 2007 and is well maintained with full amenities. The east end beach is the best beach on the island while close to restaurants, shops, grocery store and art galleries.

What makes this condo unique

We took a lot of care in selecting the furnishings so it would be stylish yet comfortable and well stocked for our guests. Coastal theme done with taste and the help of Pottery Barn. Two queen beds and a Lane iRest sleeper sofa for comfort. The dining table seats 4 comfortably and 2 more seats at the breakfast bar. The kitchen is fully stocked and the electric grill on the balcony cooks terrific shrimp kabobs, steaks, hamburgers, etc...

Great condo, great fun:))

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this luxury condo, our 2nd stay at Palisade Palms. It's well designed and since the balcony overlooks Galveston Bay, we saw cruise ships and oil ships coming in as well as the yearly review of vintage boats during our stay. We would do it again. The McCormicks have a well stocked vacation home with all the dishes, utensils and basic supplies you could need and tvs in every room. It was a lovely week and we really got a lot done on our "work-cation!" Thank you again for allowing us to stay in your wonderful vacation home inn the Galveston!

Week at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

In a nutshell, this unit at Palisades Palms in Galveston is amazing! It is beautiful and Jack and his family have done so much to provide extra amenities that were not expected. Plenty of towels, pots, pans, beach toys, beach towels...having a washer and dryer in unit was great. The view of the bay is so nice - being able to watch the boats all day and night was very relaxing. In the mornings, the breeze was very pleasant and this was in July! We had 4 adults and I would say that is about the limit on the number of big people that would be comfortable to fit in the space for any length of time. The amenities that come with the condominium complex itself are superb. Pools, two hot tubs, a huge workout facility, a game room, morning coffee and private access to the beach are just a few extras we were able to enjoy. The only suggestion I would make is for Palisades to contract with an umbrella/chair company so people could have that available to rent if they wanted. As it was, Jack had told us they do not offer that feature so we came prepared with our own beach tent and chairs. Jack is also very communicative and easy to reach and so nice! We will definitely look to rent his unit again if it is available!!

Beauty and Comfort

  • 5 of 5

We had two groups that shared a portion of the week with us, and everyone enjoyed the quality of the Condo and the amenities available in the facility. The unit has a Bayside view but we enjoyed it more than having a beach view. As always, the week was over before we wanted it to end. Convenient to the Seawall, and the Strand... If you have the opportunity to spend a week in this unit, you will definitely enjoy it.
