Property description

PREVIEW OPPORTUNITY - SUNDAY JANUARY 18

We'll be in Pointe West Sunday January 18. Let us know if you want to come for a preview visit.

AMAZING WATERFRONT CONDO IN RESORT COMMUNITY WITH SPECTACULAR VIEW!

You will be absolutely amazed how beautiful the view is from this condo. Our building is the closest you can get to the water at Pointe West. You will want to spend hours and hours just sitting on the balcony taking in the gorgeous view, watching birds, etc... Guests appreciate that the bay is only 12-18' deep. They can turn their kids loose with the kayaks and sit on the balcony and watch them worry-free. Fishermen love wading out right in front of the condo.

- Enjoy Incredible Sunsets and Bird Watching right from the balcony.

- Fish, Crab, Kayak, and Paddle Board right in front of our building.

- Walk or Bicycle, or take the golf cart to the Pointe West Beach Club or Lazy River Pool .

- Enjoy miles of gorgeous, clean, private beach. Pointe West by far has the best beach on the Island. If you have been to Galveston before, you won’t believe your eyes when you see how nice our beach is.

- If you have to work, you’ll love that we have free Wi-Fi, a desk in one of the bedrooms, and a printer that works with smart phone and tablets.

- We are handicap accessible. We have wide doorways and an elevator. There's also an elevator at the Pointe West Beach Club. Guests can even make arrangements with the beach club to use their beach-ready wheel chair free of charge.

- The Pointe West Beach Club has a beautiful infinity edge pool, hot tub, kids pool, cabanas, grills, gift shop, internet usage (free wifi), workout facility, lockers & game room. The Pointe West Beach Club charges $10 per person at the entrance desk as guest registration fee for the duration of your stay.

Deal directly with the owners. Our condo is not part of a large rental pool. We try to keep everything extremely well stocked and in very good condition, as we want it to be when we stay there. Thru trial and error we have found a great cleaning crew, so you should find the condo to be very, very clean.

We are very family friendly and we let you use all our “stuff” for free. We have 4 kayaks, 2 bicycles, a stand-up paddle board, fishing poles, crabbing nets, beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, binoculars, loads of board games, DVDs, computer monitor & printer, pack-n-play, high-chair, etc.. We even have a golf cart for guests who book 3 or more consecutive nights. Most guests find all the extras we provide to be an incredible value! Renting all the stuff that we provide for free would cost about $500/day thru a rental agency (see www.waterboyrentals.com).

We also have a very well equipped kitchen. If you’ve rented a VRBO type property before, you’ll be amazed at how well stocked our kitchen is. We often host Thanksgiving here for 18, so we have a lot of everything, and all kinds of cookware. If you forget to bring it, don’t worry, we probably have it!

Our check-in procedure is very easy. For optimum security, each guest gets unique door code that only works for the duration of their stay. Guests can change the 10 digit door code assigned to them to a 4 digit code of their choice that’s easy to remember. No one is given keys. Guests don’t have to drive anywhere to pick-up keys and there’s no chance that a previous guest or workman is running around with a key to your door.

Beautiful Beaches! Fabulous location for Bird Watching, Fishing, Kayaking, Crabbing, Sunset Watching, etc... Photographer's Dream! You can go into Galveston for countless amusements, including theatre, shopping, museums, etc.. but probably won't want to once you experience how relaxing and beautiful it is just to sit on the balcony and soak it all in at the condo.

For boaters, there is a public boat dock across the bridge at San Luis Pass. There's a private Marina 6 miles to the east in Sea Isle.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

Why the Owner Chose Pointe West:
We purchased this condo because we wanted a quick & quiet escape from work that was also fun enough so that our college age children would enjoy it. It's a really easy commute from Houston and our kids love bringing their college friends here - there's so much for them to do. We love relaxing and watching birds from the balcony. Our kids love taking their friends to the beach club and lazy river pool. Best of both worlds for our family. (NOTE - the 3 bedroom was such a hit, that we later purchased a 2 bedroom in the same building. Together, they are perfect for large family gatherings, like Thanksgiving. See VRBO 561225 to get rates for both units.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Incredible View!!!!!! Feels very remote and very close to nature. Perfect spot for Bird Watching, Kayaking, Fishing, or just relaxing.
