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 Texas Gulf Coast

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...

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.

Great Stay at "The" top condo complex in Galveston - Palisade Palms

  • 5 of 5

My family and I very much enjoyed our stay at the Palisade Palms (essentially private beach which is cleaned of seaweed each morning, great infinity pool and a game room with billiards, shuffleboard, air hockey, fooseball and big screen TV). We have stayed in many rental private homes in the Galveston area and they are generally older, much less well appointed and obviously lacking in all of the amenities of Palisades.

The Unit we stayed in, Trade Winds 1712, was very nice, comfortable and well appointed. It is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo, just over 1000 square feet. It has two queen sized beds and completely fine for four people, but four is really the limit. We ate most meals out in Galveston, but kitchen seemed very well stocked with everything one would need. This particular condo faces North, North West toward Houston, so you can see the ships in the Houston Ship Channel, Pelican Island and the Strand Area, but you can't really see the Gulf of Mexico or the Beach, but this wasn't an issue for us. Everything in the condo seemed new and was of high quality.

If you have four or less in your party, you can't beat this great rental in Galveston Texas.

Wonderful stay in Galveston.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice property. Great pool and beach area. Friendly, helpful staff. Condo unit was clean, nicely decorated, well stocked with good quality items. We had everything we needed and more. Would stay here again. Especially enjoyed the view, watching the ship traffic go by.

Fantastic Experience - A must rent if going to Galveston

  • 5 of 5

If you are going to Galveston stop searching for another rental. Jack was fantastic to work with and his unit was impeccable. It was clean, luxurious and comfortable. I have a very high level of expectation and there was not a single thing about this unit and building I did not enjoy. If you are going to Galveston you should not look any further because this is the best unit I have ever rented on VRBO and this unit will make your trip to Galveston a success. The pool, the location, the furniture, the linens, the kitchen, the organization, the building staff and Jack made our trip better than I could have ever imagined. It was not just clean but it was warm, charming, spacious and comfortable. BEST VRBO UNIT EVER! We love Jack and we love this unit.........this unit elevated our vacation and exceeded our expectations. I wish all of my VRBO experiences were this easy and enjoyable.

Best property in gaveston per my experience- been frequenting the area for 35 years

  • 5 of 5

Cant say enough about 1712 at the palasides. Jack and his family are great hosts and have a beautiful condo. Everything was maticulous. The grounds are like staying at a 5 star resort in palm beach . Lots to do. Encredible pool area overlooking beech, top notch billiards hall, game room and a wokout facility topped by very few. Super staff too..We will be frequent flyers in the future. Gotta see to beleive. Thanks jack.
