About Joyce

The SandBag is a lovely beach house located in a resort community at the far West end of Galveston. As a retired couple my husband and I enjoy our house as often as we can.

Joyce purchased this house in 2006

Why Joyce chose Galveston Island

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.

New Years Family time

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely home over New Year's weekend. It is very well maintained and equipped with most essentials. The walk to the beach is only a couple minutes down the street. The neighborhood streets and bridges over the lakes make for a nice walk as well. Had it not been so cold, we would have enjoyed sitting on the decks to drink coffee and dine al fesco.

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!
