About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Count the Views is a tastefully decorated 4 bedroom /4 bath cottage in the beautiful and luxurious Pointe West resort located on the west end of Galveston island. Our cottage is back on the rental market with fresh interior paint throughout. This family friendly house is directly across from the beach walkover. With less than 150 feet away, it’s even closer than some of the beachfront homes! This home has 2 large private balconies with fabulous views of the beach and two community lagoons. It is located on a corner lot so there is extra lawn space to enjoy outdoor activities with your family.

This home has 3 king size beds and one room with 2 bunk beds. Linens are included with rental.

The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped and features granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. In addition to the basics, the kitchen has many extras such as large serving platters, food processor, large griddle, crock pot and waffle iron.

There are 5 televisions, 2 DVD players, and cable. The home also features a washer/dryer, high speed internet access, grill and outdoor cabana shower. The ground floor has two picnic tables... a great place to relax and watch the kids play. It's also a convenient place to sit while unloading and cleaning off after the beach.

Both balconies have fantastic views of the beach, lagoons, large palm trees, and the beautiful Pointe West community. The lower balcony has a large iron table and chairs. The upper balcony is off the master bedroom. The house faces east so the balconies are shaded in the evening. It’s a perfect place to enjoy the breeze and listen to the sound of the waves!

Guests are 150 feet away form beautifully groomed and wide beaches. In addition, guests may enjoy all the amenities Pointe West resort has to offer (daily use fee applies - $10/pp). Amenities include large infinity edge pool, hot tub, lazy river pool, children’s pool, game room, fitness facility, organized resort activities, poolside bar and restaurant.

Great house and beautiful resort

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 8 confortably enjoyed this beautiful home. Pointe West is the nicest area of Galveston Island in our opinion. The amenities -The Beach Club, lazy river pool, work out facilities, outdoor bar - are all top notch. One item of note - the location is on the far side of the island so the drive to and from downtown Galveston is a hike. We had a wonderful time and will be back.

Owner's Response: Hi Tim, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I am so glad to hear you were all comfortable and enjoyed the house and resort. We love Pointe West and it's largely due to it's remote location and beautiful well groomed beaches. It's in Galveston but truly doesn't have the same feel as the seawall area. I look forward to having you and your family again! Take care! Sam

I can't say enough good things about this beautiful vacation home. What a great family home! We had all ages on this trip from 18 mos. to 73 years and everything was enjoyed by all. It's like walking into your very own beautifully decorated and immaculately clean vacation home. So much was provided. The only thing we had to bring was personal items and food. Everything else was there. Access to the beach is a big plus with this home. The walkover is right across the street so it was an easy walk for the little ones. The views from the balconies are terrific. We loved sitting outside relaxing and just enjoying the atmosphere.

This is our 4th year to come to Pointe West but this was the first year we stayed at the cottages. We definitely will be back next year. Thanks so much Sam and Jim for sharing such a wonderful home!

Perfect family get-away...resort living with all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 families share this property and fell in love with the amazing views and comforts of home living on the beach. With 6 kids and 4 adults, there was plenty of room to sleep...and the kids loved the gaming system tucked away in one of the rooms. "Count The Views" was beautifully decorated, the couches were cozy for movie time and the balconies were great for moms to sit and have morning coffee while watching the surf. The kitchen was FULLY stocked, including butter ramekins for when we grilled lobster (thanks to Allen's Seafood Market for the lobster tails). While the drive to a main store was 25 minute trip, the mini mart was sufficient for quick grocery needs and it was worth it just to be away from the main tourist areas. Only a few steps to walk to the beach with the luxury of no vehicles (cars are allowed further down the coast...but not at Pointe West). The beaches were clean and not heavily populated at all...just other families from Pointe West. We felt secluded on an island within an island at Pointe West. The Pointe West pools were immaculate...the view alone from the infinity pool watching the surf with a Pina Colada in hand was a great highlight of the trip (don't forget to tip your waitress...that's right, I didn't have to blend my own drink). We loved the lazy river on the bayside has a beach entry for tanning, a wading pool and hot tub. It was a short drive to Pleasure Pier (about 25 minutes) where we had a blast on all of the rides. We hope to be back again and will definitely see if "Count The Views" is available. THANK YOU, were so helpful!

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The beach house was perfect for our family with 6 adults and 3 children under 8 years of age. The walkover to the beach was just across the street, which was perfect with the smaller children. The beds were very comfortable, which gave us all a good nights sleep-and afternoon naps! There was room for all of us to eat, either at the kitchen table or on the balcony, which is were everyone wanted to be because of the views and evening breeze. The property was everything it was advertized to be- and then some. Galveston seawall is close enough to the property so that if you want to drive to some of the other attractions, it doesn't take but about 20-25 minutes. We highly recommend this property if you are looking for a vacation spot in Galveston. Count The Views will be our first choice again next year for our annual family vacation in Galveston.

We'll be counting the views again!

  • 5 of 5

Our first experience, so a little tentative, with a VRBO, but ABSOLUTELY could not have been

happier. The home was beautiful, CLEAN, beds soooo comfortable. The grounds were very well kept,

and true to the writeup the beach was a short walk away--very very clean, The Infinity Pool was more

awesome than the pics. There were 8 of us in the home and we had lots of room. We have mainly stayed near the seawall area in Galveston for quick trips, so did not expect to find an area like this.

We felt like we were at a resort, somewhere far away. Owners were most accommodating and great

communicators. We can't wait for an opportunity to go back. The 5 TV's may be a bit of a stretch--

there were 2 large nice ones, but the others were a bit on the small size. Otherwise great experience!
