          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2010

          About the owner: My entire family are native Houstonians and lifelong visitors to Galveston island. We had tried for years to find the right spot for us in Galveston. We discovered and fell in love with Pointe West Resort in 2007, but the home prices were too steep. Then in late 2009 Pointe West prices came back to Earth. We found Kathy's Kottage in March 2010.

          Why the Owner Chose Pointe West:
          We actually were meeting our Realtor to look at a foreclosure across the street from Kathy's Kottage. At the last minute we decided to take a look at this house. The minute we walked upstairs to the master suite and saw the view, we simultaneously said, 'We'll take it!' Best decision we ever made.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          The views from Kathy's Kottage are to die far. In the mornings when I get up to make coffee, I have to bring my wife coffee in bed and open the blinds for her. She just wants to drink her coffee and take it all in before ever getting up. Come try it for yourself.
