Pointe West house description

After two extended family reunions on the coast in New England, we knew we wanted to create that opportunity closer to home. As I searched the web for property on the Texas Coast, I found Las Brisas. I fell in love with the lovely blue multi decked home. We love sharing it with family and friends. There is room for the grandparents and the cousins. We love staying at Las Brisas, enjoy the Pointe West resort amenities and we know you will, too.

This beach house is a 3 bedroom home in the Pointe West beachfront community. Access to the beach is via a community boardwalk 3 houses away. Enjoy the balmy breezes and the sound of the sea while relaxing in the hammock in the shaded patio or on hammock chairs on the covered deck. Large master bedroom has a queen bed and futon, gorgeous bathroom and a private deck for watching the sunset. Guest room is on the first floor, with a large window with Gulf views and an adjacent bathroom. The two queen bedrooms have flat screen TV's and cable. Bunk room has two twin over full bunk beds, private bath, a window with Gulf views and a TV with integrated DVD.

Watch local birds at the pond from the back deck - Cranes, Cormorants, and Roseate Spoonbills just to name a few.

The pools are open year round, but only the hot tubs are heated. Beginning July 1, 2013 guests will be charged a $25 fee to use the beach club.

House Amenities:
The house is furnished in a beachy upscale style, and is spacious and comfortable. This home has a large fully equipped kitchen, with everything you need to feed your family in style. The large dining table seats 8 and there is a breakfast bar that seats three. The deck table and chairs seat four. We also have a card table and 4 chairs stored in a closet if you need it.

The house technology is complete with cable, Netflix and wifi. In the event you need to connect to the outside world, you can connect your laptop to the in-house wireless system anywhere, including sitting on the deck.

Sand chairs and beach toys are provided. Outdoor shower makes rinsing off the sand from the day at the beach easy.

The house can sleep 14, but that's with every bed full. It's not really set up for large groups of adults (bunk beds!), but is perfect for 2 families and a group of kids. Well behaved dogs are welcome. No prom groups or parties please.

To prevent scams, please chat with owner on the phone using the listed contact number prior to sending money for reservation. We never request payment via wire transfers.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: My family loves the beach and it's awesome coming to the beach at Pointe West. We always bring our dog who loves playing in the surf.

              Why the Owner Chose Pointe West:
              We have family that also purchased a condo in Pointe West and we like meeting up for extended family vacations together. We think this beach is the best in the area. There are no cars on it! It's a great place to get away from it all but close enough to Galveston to go it to town if we choose to do so.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              I love being at our beach house. It is a change from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We furnished the house with a bunk room so our kids can always bring friends. We enjoy jogging around Pointe West on the golf cart paths, strolling along the beach and finding cool shells. It's a great chance to be for our family to be together. I love our outdoor shower - it makes being at the beach easier - you can leave the sand outside! We like to go into town to Ben and Jerry's ice cream and visit Moody Gardens. We also love chasing the crabs on the beach at night with flashlights. The delighted squeals from the kids are hilarious!
