About the property

Stylish, Whimsical Family Beach House with Four Balconies, Bar, Clubhouse Pool.

Life’s a beach—at least, it should be! We designed our brand new home to be a cool, tranquil space where you can reconnect with friends and family members on the Gulf Coast. We have a total of four balconies, each with plenty of seating and amazing water views.

Whimsical touches, like barstools sitting atop giant springs or rare driftwood hanging on wall, paired with natural materials help create the perfect “at-the-beach” vibe without the kitsch.


Everything from post-beach lunch for the little ones and locally sourced ceviche are a snap to prep in our gourmet kitchen. Two can sit at the bar and eight can dine at the table (use the available bench to seat even more). Or head out to the balcony for an al fresco feast.


Two chaise lounge sectional sofas in the living room means everyone can find a seat for a beach-movie marathon. Or spread out to watch your favorite shows—there are six flat screen TVs in the house plus all with 140 plus channels.

Challenge everyone to an X-Box tournament, pull out the board games, or gather around the karaoke machine and introduce your kids to your favorite eighties hair bands. They might not appreciate your vocals, but they’ll love learning how to head bang.


One of the most underrated parts of any vacation is sweet, sweet slumber.

On the first floor, kids will love snuggling down in the two twin-over-full bunks. Or they can choose to slumber in the living room ( three pull-out sleepers ).

On the second floor, two guest rooms (one with a queen and a full bed and another with a king) share a furnished balcony.

The nearby master retreat lives up to its name. Relax on the private balcony and take in a breathtaking sunset or do a little bird watching. Sink into the freestanding soaking tub in the en suite bathroom. Then retreat to the king bed.​


Kids change clothes approximately 671 times a day, especially on a beach vacation, so we’ve included a washer and dryer. When it’s time to clean up for a special dinner out, we provide you with a blow dryer ( available in every bathrooms ) and ironing board. We also offer complimentary WiFi.

No need to pack all the kid gear! We have two Ciao! portable high chairs—perfect for kitchen, dining room, or balcony. When you’re headed to the beach, don’t forget the Summer Infant Pop N’ Play to shade your littlest guests from the sun.


Our home sits on the tip of Galveston Island, so you’ll enjoy wide-open panoramic views of the Gulf or Bay from every side. That also means you’re a quick walk to some of the island’s best fishing spots, including the backyard pond.

At the clubhouse, you’ll find a hot tub and an infinity pool that practically spills into the Gulf. For those who dream of floating in a lazy river, we’ve got one of those, too.

Time to hit the sand? Just head through the tunnel under the road and you’re at the beach. When you return, wash off in the outdoor shower before heading upstairs to relax.


Upon Arrival - Check in and get your access to the Beach Club:

You can pick up your wrist bands at the Beach Club that will allow you access to all of the Pointe West pools, restaurants, bars and recreation center. The wrist bands are $10 per person (over age 3) for the length of your stay and are paid to the Beach Club. The Beach Club is the large yellow building on the beach side at the end of the palm tree lined driveway. Pull in and feel free to park under the building or in the parking spaces out front. The pools, restaurant, bar, beach club and recreation room is for the exclusive use of Pointe West guests.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about our Father's Day weekend. From the moment you drive up to this gem, you KNOW how much pride the owners take in it. We were greeted with smiles, an immaculate home & 2 wonderful bottles of wine. Each bedroom was spacious, bright & CLEAN!! The bathrooms were stocked with everything you need & if you're like my family,you always forget something.

We've rented several homes in Galveston & 26811 Bay Water drive was BY FAR the best ever!!! We are already booking another trip for August. Trust me when I tell you, this is THE HOME you'd love to rent in Galveston😊

My husband booked the house as a surprise for my 30th birthday! I had a wonderful time in such a relaxing and beautiful setting...I was very comfortable and we had more than enough room and amenities for our whole party. I hope we can come back soon!

So great that I almost didn't want to review it and let everyone in on the secret!

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this beautiful property to host out-of-state guests for a wedding hoping to show them a bit of Galveston. Unfortunately it rained the entire weekend, but thanks to this GREAT house there was plenty to do while staying completely indoors. We even wished we had more time to play with everything the house had to offer.

First off, the communication with the owners is seamless and transparent. They are extremely kind and thoughtful. The day before our arrival, there was a power outage and the owners went out of their way and purchased a brand new refrigerator and installed it before our arrival! They were easy to reach throughout the weekend when we had any questions.

The house has EVERYTHING you can imagine and need for any situation. We were travelling with a 3 month old baby, and a 3 & 6 yr. old so we felt the need to pack everything. We didn't need to worry because the house was furnished with pack n' plays, high chairs, and plenty of activities to keep the kids safe and entertained - even through the rain. My family cooks and most times when you rent a property the kitchen only has bare bones of equipment. This place had appliances nicer than home, plenty of dishes for a large group, and every cooking gadget you can dream of. The laundry room is immaculate! The floor level bar was great since we needed coverage from the rain but wanted to be outside. We utilized the charcoal grill but there was also a gas burner available. Outdoor shower was a nice touch. No need to pack toiletries, they are all provided.

Entertainment: We were weary that with 4 days of rain, we would feel cooped up. That was not at all the case. There were crab cages, beach toys, lawn chairs, bean bag toss, Scrabble, Jenga....I mean, everything! Initially we intended on spending a lot of time at the clubhouses, but there was so much to do at the house that we never made it there. We utilized the walking path and easily went down to the beach. It's not too far, a 3 yr old and an 84 yr old were able to handle it just fine.

Selfishly, I would love to keep this amazing place a secret so that it will be available for our future family outings. But the owners are so genuinely nice that I can't help but give this place the raving review that it deserves. We've rented many before but none like this. My advice when renting here: take everything you packed and leave 1/2 of it at home. This place has everything you need and more. Just bring your clothes and go.

Loved this!!!❣️

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful weekend in this beautiful home. We enjoyed the pools, drinks, bay fishing, and surf fishing! We love that you can have it all when you stay here. Every member of our family had such a great time. Some enjoyed the fishing while others enjoyed the pools and some preferred to nap! We felt like we were worlds away and only had to drive a short bit back to Houston to get home. We will most definitely be returning when we need some R&R!!!

This is by far our BEST experience in Galveston and I am convinced it is driven by the fact that we stayed in this home. The house is impeccable ... luxurious, clean, well designed and decorated, had everything you could possibly need during your stay from beach towels, to baby cribs and gates, baby high chairs, lawn chairs and umbrellas for the beach, floaties for the pool, all kinds of games for the kids - indoor and outdoor (scrabble, chess, jenga, bean bag toss, kites), a fancy karaoke machine etc. The kitchen was equipped with everything you need to cook whatever gourmet meal you can think of along with the appropriate serve ware and dishes etc. It also had a grill downstairs and picnic tables on the porch for outside dining while watching the sunset. The beds were super comfy and linens were soft and clean. I can't say enough to praise how impressed we were with the house and all it had to offer.

Access to the Clubhouse was a HUGE PLUS because it gave us access to the infinity pool, the gym, restaurant and the private beach which secludes you from all the crowd. We originally thought the clubhouse would be too far because it was across the main street but the drive was less than 3 minutes away from the home. The lazy river was small but big enough for our babies and little kids and it was conveniently located within the same neighborhood/area. The pool service and the infinity pool looking over the gulf made us feel as though we were at some resort outside of Texas.

Additionally, Daniel was always available to answer any questions we had regarding our stay. He was very nice and responsive.

Overall, this was a memorable experience for our family. We have all committed to making this an annual trip and when we do, we won't stay anywhere else other than this beautiful home. THNAK YOU for letting us enjoy your home!
