About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-14)

**Please note, we are no longer taking reservations at this site. Las Brisas has wonderful new owners and you can reach Lauren at https://www.vrbo.com/857142.**

Welcome to Las Brisas in lovely Pointe West.

You will enjoy the proximity of the beach and having views of the ocean from the side of the balcony and views of the bay and the pond out back. Water views everywhere! The covered deck is a great location to enjoy the sunsets. This is the perfect place to share time with extended family, reconnect with friends and renew your soul.

Galveston Island has something for everyone.
For the young and the young at heart check out the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier - ride the roller coaster or the merry-go-round. Right next door at Murdoch's you can shop for island souvenirs or watch the surf and relax in the rocking chairs in the covered breezeway.
For the nature lover, check out Moody Gardens - my teenage kids still love the aquarium and the rainforest pyramids - you won't believe you are in Texas! If you want another water adventure, Schlitterbahn water park is a 30 minute drive from the house. Don't miss the Historic District and the Strand for shopping and local eateries like MOD Coffee House and The Mosquito Cafe. If you want to take in some history, check out the tall ship Elissa and the Ocean Star Off Shore Drilling Rig and Museum. Pointe West has a fabulous beach and there's so much to explore in Galveston - come rediscover the island!


As our guest at Las Brisas (an owner managed property) you will have easy access to the house via your personal lock code - which means no coordinating schedules to pick up/drop off keys and no danger of losing keys at the beach!

This beach house is a 3 bedroom cottage in the Pointe West beachfront community. Access to the beach is via a community boardwalk 3 houses away. Enjoy the balmy breezes and the sound of the sea while relaxing in the hammock in the shaded patio or on adirondack chairs on the covered deck. Large master bedroom has a beautiful view of the pond and bay, queen bed and futon, gorgeous bathroom and a private deck for watching the sunset. Guest room is on the first floor, with a large window with Gulf views and an adjacent bathroom. The two queen bedrooms have flat screen TV's and cable. Bunk room has two twin over full bunk beds, private bath, a window with Gulf views and a TV with integrated DVD.

Sip your coffee in the morning on the back deck and watch local birds at the pond - Cranes, Cormorants, and Roseate Spoonbills just to name a few.

The Pointe West pools are open year round, but only the hot tubs are heated. Beginning January 1, 2015 guests will be charged a $10 fee/per person to use the beach club. THE POINTE restaurant at the club is NOW OPEN Tuesday thru Saturday 11 am to 8 pm, Sunday 11 am to 3 pm. Closed Monday.

House Amenities:
The house is furnished in a beachy upscale style, and is spacious and comfortable. This home has a large fully equipped kitchen, with everything you need to feed your family in style. The large dining table seats 8 and there is a breakfast bar that seats three. The deck table and chairs seat four. We also have a card table and 4 chairs stored in a closet if you need it.

The house technology is complete with cable, Netflix and wifi. In the event you need to connect to the outside world, you can connect your laptop to the in-house wireless system anywhere, including sitting on the deck.

Sand chairs and beach toys are provided. Outdoor shower makes rinsing off the sand from the day at the beach easy.

The house can sleep 14, but that's with every bed full. It's not really set up for large groups of adults (bunk beds!), but is perfect for 2 families and a group of kids. Well behaved dogs are welcome.

Owner info

Bruce and Maggie Tate

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: After two extended family reunions on the coast in New England, we knew we wanted to create that opportunity closer to home. We bought our first beach house in 2010 in Port Aransas (The Blue Roost vrbo 87740). The next year we followed some relatives and purchased a beach cottage in Pointe West. And the rest, as they say, is history! Since then we've had Spring Breaks and family reunions for Thanksgiving every year and come down as often as busy schedules permit. We love staying at Las Brisas and we know you will, too. My family loves Galveston and it's awesome coming to the beach at Pointe West. We always bring our dog who loves playing in the surf. Check out our other beach house in Port Aransas: vrbo 87740

Why the Owner Chose Galveston, TX, USA:
We have family that also purchased a condo in Pointe West and we like meeting up for extended family vacations together. We think this beach is the best in the area. There are no cars on it! It's a great place to get away from it all but close enough to Galveston to go it to town if we choose to do so.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love being at our beach house. It is a change from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We furnished the house with a bunk room so our kids can always bring friends. We enjoy jogging around Pointe West on the golf cart paths, strolling along the beach and finding cool shells. It's a great chance to be for our family to be together. I love our outdoor shower - it makes being at the beach easier - you can leave the sand outside! We like to go into town to Ben and Jerry's ice cream and visit Moody Gardens. We also love chasing the crabs on the beach at night with flashlights. The delighted squeals from the kids are hilarious!
