About Joyce

The SandBag is a lovely beach house located in a resort community at the far West end of Galveston.

Joyce purchased this house in 2006

Why Joyce chose Gulf Coast

We love Galveston Island and the Pointe West Resort provided the perfect property to purchase.

What makes this house unique

This is not a condo. We keep this house decorated and furnished as our home and we provide these comforts to our visitors. Just bring food and clothes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for such a wonderful spot to relax! You have everything so nice. We sure enjoyed the ocean and the wonderful balconies to read and let the wind caress us.

Thank you for sharing.

Just as described

  • 5 of 5

We planned a stay at the beach so our adult children, who live in Dallas, could come to visit, and we could start to defrost from a long winter. The home was exactly as advertised...all the amenities of our Michigan home, but a lot closer to a warm beach. We also enjoyed the pool and the sunset from the lazy river.

We enjoyed having the living, dining, and kitchen on the top floor, and the balconies were perfect!

We pitched a tent on the beach, and left it there for 3 days with nobody bothering it. The beach was clean, and obviously raked recently. The outdoor shower at the house was perfect for cleaning up after those beach days.

I highly recommend this property.

Beautiful, relaxing, & comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. The community has a private beach and beach club with amenities. The home was very nice, with all the comforts of home. We appreciated being able to picnic on the patio, and the availability of children's items and beach toys.

Fabulous house & location

  • 5 of 5

The house and location was absolutely awesome. It was very close walking distance to the beach. In addition, there is a playground close by the kids could walk to and have fun. It was great sitting out on the balconies in the evening (even having dinner outside one night). We will definitely be looking to book a trip back and staying again.

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely be back! Home is clean and feels like your own home. Kids loved the easy access to the beach and riding their bikes around the beautifully landscaped community. We started looking at our calendars the second day we were here to plan our next stay. Seven Seas Grocery is a short 10 min drive and offers everything from beach apparel to fresh meats and steaks. Pointe West is the perfect get away if you want to enjoy the beach and Galveston attractions without the traffic and congestion of the east end.
