                        Our entire extended family (7 of us), aged 4 to 70 had a wonderful time at Pete's Place. We've rented many other places, and have never had such a well equipped home. In the kitchen, there was sugar, salt, oil, flour, baggies - all the extras you forget and hate to buy. Plus the kitchen had fantastic cooking equipment. The bedrooms were well stocked too - a large TV in each, and the beds were all extremely comfortable, there were even sample shampoos. The kids loved all the toys and movies. The outdoor amenities were well thought out too - charcoal and lighter fluid for the grill, plus a hammock to watch the grilling action! There are all sorts of beach toys, towels, etc. Literally, you just need to bring your bathing suit when you stay here. The club house is a short distance away and offers something for everyone. There's a wonderfully big pool, and a baby pool, a great work out facility and a game room stocked with lot's of fun things for teens. Another nice bonus is the owner was very helpful - sending a thorough welcome letter, and checking in with us to see if we had questions just before we arrived. You'll enjoy your stay! We sure did.

                        Pete's Place was clean, very well decorated, and had plenty of activities and supplies for the kids. The location is a easy walk to the beach, and backs up to a nice pond with a fountain. Lots of beach toys for the kids and all the supplies we needed including baby monitor, booster chair, pack and play, and plenty of indoor toys and movies. The owners were very responsive and helpful. We will stay at Pete's again. Great destination for a easy, relaxing fun weekend with the kids.

                        My family & friends recently stayed at Pete's Place & had a wonderful time! The house is so nice & just a short walk to the beach (which was VERY clean & not crowded). We especially liked having access to the pool at the Beach Club just down the street. The location is great if you want to be away from the seawall crowd but close enough to drive in if you want to do some shopping. We brought our own food & made good use of the kitchen. The owners were great & were quick to answer any questions we had. There were 5 teenagers with us & they all had a great time. We definitely want to come back to Pete's Place again next summer!

                        We had a wonderful time - the house was very comfortable with lots of room to hang out. The down stairs was a great place to be and ideal for little ones to play. My hats off to the cute decore. It was very easy to feel right at home. Great place - also the beach was clean and fun.

                        Just spent a week with family members 5 yrs to adult. Property is in top shape, open, clean and convenient. Great acces to the Gulf and pool swimming. Fishing offshore and in bay is fun. Many activities and shop- ping in Galveston. Try the Sunflower Bakery and Cafe for treats and high quality, local seafood. This property is a good value.

                        We stayed at Pete's Place during Spring Break 2011. We had a fantastic time - and totally recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a great family getaway, in a comfy place with all the comforts of home (and then some!). The cottage is just beautiful, and stocked with great kitchen appliances and utensils (never before seen in any other condos we've stayed at), toys, movies, and beach gear. The flatscreen TVs and DVD players help keep the kids busy and happy on a rainy day or while you're cooking a fanstastic meal! The grounds are really nicely kept with a pond (and fountain) in the back yard, quiet streets perfect for bike riding, and the beach is only a short walk away. We even attempted to catch crabs in the pond out back - but no luck this time. We also loved the pools, lazy river, and hot tubs at the club - and there's so much more to do there that we didn't have time to try! Make sure you bring your groceries and beverages with you, because it's a bit of a hike to the closest grocery store. And, take a day or two to drive up to Galveston (about 30 min away) to enjoy the charm and history it has to offer. Next time we want to rent one of those bike-mobiles (not sure what they're called) that everyone is riding there - they look like a blast! Thanks to Robert and Cynthia for making everything so easy and comfortable. They were really helpful with their information, recommendations, and even guiding us through our errors in connecting to the Internet. They have built a wonderful cottage to share - so go have a blast!

                        Great place to stay. The house was immaculate and loaded with things to use on the beach. The walk to the beach is about a block in a subdivision with no traffic. I don't know if this is always the case ... when we were there we had about 1/2 a mile or more of beach to ourselves. It was perfect with two little ones to chase around.

                        Thank you Robert for letting us spend our last few days before school started at your wonderful beach house. My family and I had a wonderful time. The kids especially enjoyed the beach and trying to catch fish and crabs in the pond behind the house. The beach is private and not crowded as some of the other beaches can be in Galveston. We spent most of our time at the beach building sand castles and playing in the water. The sunset from the beach was beautiful and one evening we even saw a double rainbow over the ocean. The entire house had a very welcoming feel to it and the beds were very comfortable. The owner was extremely accommodating and helpful. We can't wait to return again!! My husband said this was one of the best vacations that we have taken.

                        My children and I had the pleasure of staying at Pete's Place this summer. We had a very relaxing time and all the comforts of home plus more. The cottage is very well furnished and nicely decorated. (Being a Maryland native, I was particularly fond of the crab decor!) The house was clean and comfortable throughout. My children enjoyed having their own bedrooms, each with its own flat-screen TV. The bed in the master bedroom was great - best sleep I've had all year! The balcony had a nice view of the pond and was a great place to sit and unwind with a good book. The patio on the ground floor was spacious and the outdoor closet contained many beach/pool toys for the kids. It's obvious that the owners spent time designing and planning the home to be a family vacation getaway. I appreciated the convenience of having a full-sized HE washer & dryer and WiFi as well as the small items (soap, coffee filters, Q-tips); the owners remember what you may forget to pack! As for the Pointe West community, the beach is a very short walk from the cottage. (My kids enjoyed finding shells and the hermit crabs which lived in them!) The Beach Club had a nice pool, hot tub, game room, and on-site restaurant/bar as well as a gift shop. Many guests chose to grill on the pool deck. Smores were offered at night on the weekend. The bayside pool is a bit further away but it is less busy and not as deep - better for smaller children; there's also a lazy river with tubes as well as a hot tub & grill. Pete's Place definitely has a lot to offer, both in comfort and location. The owners are pleasant to work with as well; they provided a lot of information upfront and quickly answered all of my questions. My family thoroughly enjoyed our vacation time here!! We hope to return again soon!

                        Robert: Thank you for helping to make last week so much fun for us and our friends. You have really thought of everything and have done a wonderful job decorating and outfitting Pete’s Place. It is a wonderful home in a great location. It is perfect for anyone, but particularly good for families with kids. I cannot wait to return. We have shared the information and vrbo link with several friends who vacation in Galveston , so I hope that you will be receiving even more interest. Thanks again. Kindest regards, Dan

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: We first fell in love with Galveston 12 years ago when we met on the Strand. Robert grew up in Houston & has always loved the water. Having a beach house has been a dream for us. We live in Pearland with our 2 year old son, Pete. Before Pete, we were avid travelers. Now that Pete is 2, we are learning the joys of staying close to home. We have tried to equip our home with many of the nice touches we have enjoyed in our past travels. For us, Galveston is a perfect place to come & relax. We love sharing our home with our family & friends & hope that you will too!

                      Why the Owner Chose Pointe West:
                      Pointe West is unlike any other place in Galveston. The amenities are wonderful. The resort allows us to enjoy the great activities in Galveston but still have the relaxing secluded beach experience we were looking to gain!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Pete's Place is a child friendly family home with much attention to the details. We have decorated the home so that it gorgeous but still comfortable. We supply all linens, beach towels, paper products, soaps, shampoo & conditioner and trash bags. The kitchen has everything you will need to prepare all your meals, even an ice cream maker! These are all the details that corporate listings don't provide! We hope that you will find our home to be a great home away from home for you & your family.
