What a beautiful view! 09/05/2014

VRBO Bear stayed here:


What can I say? The VRBO Bear had a great time in Galveston thanks to this beautiful property that had everything we needed! With 6 adults and 3 kids we had plenty of room and felt right at home. We had a great time making breakfast in the kitchen every morning and dinner every night. The kitchen was lovely and had spices and pantry items already stocked. There were also many pots and pans, utensils, plates and glasses to use, we didn’t need anything else!

Access to the beach walkway is directly across the street from the house which was so convenient. It was perfect being so close to the beach and being able to walk over whenever we wanted – especially with 3 kids in tow and lots of sand toys to carry! We also went over to the Beach Club to enjoy the pool and views. It was absolutely beautiful and there was plenty of space without feeling overcrowded.

The home has a grill, which we did not use, but it was nice that it was provided just in case. There is also an outdoor shower on the back of the house which was VERY useful and we used it many times to wash off the sand from our feet after being at the beach. There are also beautiful views of the bay from the balconies on the back of the house and we got to see some beautiful sunsets.

Timo was very responsive and helpful in providing all the information we needed prior to our stay. He even sent an activity guide he created for things to do or restaurants he recommended. This beach cottage was the perfect place to get away from it all and relax on the beaches of Galveston! We had a great time and would love to go back!

About the owner: Initially intended to be our weekend house our jobs took us to a different state. We decided to share our memories with the beautiful Pointe West resort and our beach house with our guests and hope you enjoy your stay at 'The Good Life,Too'.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
You'll have water views from every window in the house and enjoy the fabulous weather on Galveston island. The wide, private beaches are just a few steps away. The beach club can easily be reached walking using the hike trail (15 minutes) or by car (2 minutes). You'll enjoy owner parking privileges (covered, with an elevator to access the pool area). In the evening you can enjoy the warm breeze while using the provided charcoal BBQ on the patio together with a beer or dine at one of the 2 restaurants at the beach club. There are several restaurants close by or you can enjoy a huge variety of dining options in Galveston, go to the movies or enjoy a show at the Grand Opera. For those who like to club there's a vivid nightlife scene in Galveston as well.
