The view of the gulf from the balcony is spectacular! 05/19/2014

VRBO Bear stayed here:


Mamma Bear and I booked the Sandcastle condo for 5 days in late May for a sleuth gathering of our two bear cubs and both sets of grandma and grandpa bears. The Property Managers could not have been more friendly and helpful during the booking process, and they were very prompt and responsive in all our communications throughout the planning and execution of the trip.

The smell of the Gulf as we crossed over the causeway onto Galveston Island took me back to childhood memories of summer trips to the ocean. As we travelled south toward our destination, leaving the hustle and bustle of Galveston city behind, I knew we were in for a great week at the beach. The view from the balcony of our condo was spectacular and unobstructed, the perfect place to sit and sip a cup of coffee and watch the sun rise over the gulf. A short walk down to the beach past the beach club and we were enjoying a swim in the balmy Gulf waters. On the way back, a quick dip in the refreshing pool was just the thing to wash away the heat of the mid-morning sun before heading to the condo for lunch.

We couldn’t believe how lucky we were to be so close to the Beach Club. We paid a flat $25 fee for our entire group to access all the beach club amenities just next door to the condo including an adult pool, a hot tub, a kiddie pool, with plenty of shade and lounge chairs overlooking the Gulf. There was also a fitness room and a game room as well as a restaurant and a bar, making just about everything we needed to enjoy our trip right within walking distance of the condo.

The condo exceeded our expectations and the attention to detail was impressive. After a trip to the nearby grocery store, we were stocked up for the week. Even though there are a ton of excellent seafood restaurants on the north end of the island, we were able to relax together as a family and have nearly all of our meals without leaving our den. Everything was perfect and allowed us to spend time together in a home away from home, as if we were staying over at a friend’s house.

When the property managers told us we didn’t need to bring anything except clothing, they weren’t kidding. There were even beach chairs and sand toys. I was thrilled to discover a kite, giving my bear cub her first kite flying experience on the beach, bringing her much joy. Inside the condo, each room was prepared with similarly pleasant surprises; from the bathrooms (featuring everything from first aid kits to mouthwash), to the kitchen (dressed with spices and serving platters perfect for family meals), to the laundry room (loaded with detergents, Ziploc bags, and supplies for every contingency), to the living room (fit to entertain anyone, with an array of cable channels, DVDs, and games for the whole family). We chose to do the puzzle and it was a challenge of legendary proportions—the perfect thing to bring us together around the table as a family for some good laughs and relaxed conversation. Details like this set the Sandcastle apart from other vacation rentals. Rest assured, you’ll have a great stay.

Why Pointe West:
We fell in love with our condo the moment we walked in. We live on our balcony eating most meals and relaxing, seeing and listening to the ocean and watching the seagulls fly by. We love the club and all of the activities and amenities it provides.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I love to cook so you will find the kitchen stocked with everything you need and then some. We provide a wagon in the condo to help you unload your groceries and clothes. We provide another wagon in our cage to load your goodies you want to take to the beach. Once you have visited our unit I bet the next time you come you will only bring your clothes and groceries! Enjoy and bon appetit! FOR FAMILIES & LARGE GROUPS - If you need more than one condo in order to accommodate your group this is a PERFECT SPOT! Best of the West has 3 other condos available in this SAME building! Sandcastle has a twin sister (Sea Bound, 3 bedroom, 3 bath, VRBO #462619), a middle sister (Sea Star, 3 bedroom, 2 bath, VRBO #553661) & a little sister (Blue Water View 2 bedroom, 2 bath, VRBO #463253).
