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 Galveston

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.

Perfect beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a girls weekend - three moms and three six year old girls! The balconies were great. Spacious and well stocked - even had beach toys. Short walk to a quiet beach. We plan on visiting again!

Wonderful beach rental

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the sandbag. When they say just bring your clothes and food, they mean it! I kept looking for a list that had everything included, but that'd be one long list! The beach is absolutely beautiful and extremely well maintained, nothing like the seaweed filled beaches I usually picture when I think of Galveston. Private, quiet and clean. The only cons we had were; we were under the impression that the pool and lazy river were within walking distance.. and they weren't. The club house was a short drive but the lazy river was about a mile down the main hwy. we luckily had a truck to pile into, but a golf would be extremely beneficial. Also, the house is beautifully decorated, but we came with a large party who used every bed, including children, and the decorations were almost overkill. Just too much and not enough moving room/counter space. Also, the kitchen is on the top floor and bedrooms on the bottom which I hadn't realized.

Major pros were all the amenities the house came with. Really gave you the feeling of "my house is your house" we loved being able to use all the beach toys, wagons, etc for the beach. We kept saying over and over what a great trip this was and we feel so lucky to of been able to have this family vacation. The club house/pool was amazing and really felt like a resort. You can't go wrong with this rental. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

It was overall great

  • 4 of 5

Only negative there was no soap or shampoo in any of the bathrooms. It was a great location not too far from beach and the resort. Well supplied kitchen, beach stuff and plenty of towels. It was very comfortable

This is a great house to stay while visiting this area. The beaches here are not crowded at all, neither are the pools at the clubhouse or lazy river. In fact, there were times when we had the lazy river all to ourselves, wonderful. The very short walk to the beach from the house is easy. The short drive to the Clubhouse or the lazy river is convenient. The neighborhood is super quiet. We ate every meal on the deck, perfect. We had snacks at the Clubhouse once and were less than impressed. There are no other restaurants nearby. This was not a problem for us since we ate at the house all but one meal. I can’t think of anything that I would change about our stay there and we would definitely would stay there again.

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.

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.
