About Cheryl

Long time residents of Texas, live in northwest Houston with their son.

Cheryl purchased this condo in 2011

Why Cheryl chose Gulf Coast

We have been frequent visitors and vacationers to Galveston since 1980, having stayed at a number of beach houses, hotels, and condos over the years. After one stay at Pointe West a few years ago, we fell in love with the community and decided to make this our permanent vacation getaway spot. Pointe West is a hidden gem on the west end of the island that many people in Houston still don't know about. It's far enough away from hustle of Galveston's seawall hotels and restaurants that you will feel like you are on your own private beach community, but just a short drive to the many attractions that Galveston has to offer, like Moody Gardens Aquarium, Schlitterbahn Water Park, Rainforest Cafe, the Strand shops and restaurants, and first class golfing, just to name a few. We know you will enjoy your stay here.

What makes this condo unique

The West End of Galveston is known for it's peaceful, relaxing pace and the widest, most beautiful beaches on the island. Some of the most beautiful homes in Galveston are located on the far west end for good reason. Pointe West has miles of walking and bike trails with lots of beautiful ocean and bay views. At almost 1000 acres, you can even rent a golf cart to see all of what Pointe West has to offer. Your family will love it, just like we do.

Beautiful and comfortable condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is exceptionally clean and well-maintained. Includes all the comforts of home to make my family of 5 have a wonderful stay. Just a short walk to the beach and the access to the beach chairs and toys were an added bonus. We picked up groceries from Wal Mart and the kitchen is well stocked for all of your cooking needs. Beds are extra comfy and we found bed rails for the two twin beds in the closet, which were helpful for my two little ones.

Overall, a perfect condo! Thank you for a great family vacation!

Wonderful Condo Beachfront.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great condo that is Beachfront and comes complete with everything you need. Very clean and well maintained with modern features. It is in a great community that is removed from all the hustle and bus ell of Galveston proper. Cheryl is a delight to work with and is incredibly responsive. Had a minor issue and she had somebody out the next day. Can't get better service at home. Can't say enough good things and highly recommend this condo. I will definitely be back.

Nice condo, good location to beach

  • 4 of 5

Overall the condo was very nice, unfortunately when we arrived there was a note saying we could not use main door to balcony. We were able to use the door in the master bedroom, but it was inconvenient.

Condo was clean and well stocked, we especially liked the storage unit in garage for the beach items, which helped keep sand out of the unit.

We enjoyed both pools and while we were there, there were several activities for the children and on Sat. night a band.

Close enough to Galveston to enjoy putt putt and restaurants.

Would consider staying here in the future. Thank you.

Great family spot.

  • 4 of 5

Nice, roomy, clean condo. Three adults and two kids stayed comfortably. Walk is a little further than expected but the owners have a cart to haul your items down to the beach. Pools and club food are great and not overpriced. Beautiful sunsets looking bayside. Our phones were roaming in the condo and LTE on the beach (Sprint). One balcony door was broken so we had to use the other. Comes stocked with towels, blankets for fold out couch and plenty of appliances and dishes. Walmart is about 20 minutes away. Beer and gas are closer. Beach is clean and not crowded at all. This resort is also private so there aren't any cars driving on the beach in this location. Beach club feels exclusive with gates and security. $10 a person for the entire stay which is well worth it. That includes access to two pools, a gift shop, restaurant and bar. We would definitely return.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I'd like to start by saying one word... perfect! This is our second trip to gorgeous Pointe West, but the first in this rental. I have stayed in MANY rentals all over Texas and some in Florida for the last decade, and its safe to say this was the best rental yet. It was so CLEAN and extremely well stocked. My husband and I stayed here with our 2 daughters (6 and 1) and I bet we all said "man, they thought of everything" at least 10 times. Wagon to pull stuff to the beach, nice beach chairs, a canopy (we had brought our own, but certainly wont next time), beach toys, plus the kitchen was extremely well stocked. Small touches like, foil and ziplock bags and seasonings were so nice. The furnishings and decorations were very nice and beachy but not gaudy. The location to the main pool and resort was so perfect for our family with small kids....Not a ton of walking. But it wasn't loud at all, I never heard and noise from the pool. The beach was so clean, we didn't see one piece of seaweed. The view of the ocean is top notch, and we loved sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine after the kids were in bed just listening to the waves crash on the shore. Cheryl was great to work with, we had a small problem with connecting to the wifi (the cell service was really bad in the condo and wifi was a must) and she responded to my text quickly and it was resolved. The restaurant at the pool was surprisingly delicious and we skipped cooking dinner twice so that we didn't have to stop having fun playing. The lazy river was a major hit as well, super clean and the shallow areas were great for our 1 year old. My only complaint was that our stay wasn't long enough! Our 6 year old has said this must be an annual trip for our family, and her Dad and I agree 100%! We will be back next year for sure. Thanks for the perfect last minute getaway, can't wait to return!

The Historic Downtown District and The Strand is a must see. The Charming Victorian-era buildings of the Historic Downtown District beckon shoppers with their ornate iron balconies and whimsical painted signs. The gorgeous buildings, which date back to the late 1800s, are stunning examples of Victorian architecture. Fortunately, many of these buildings survived the 1900 Storm - and Hurricane Ike of 2008 - without significant damage.

Galveston Native George Mitchell led the extensive renovation of the area in the 1980s, and today The Strand is a picturesque shopping destination, as well as the home to the popular Mardi Gras! Galveston and Dickens on the Strand celebrations. The district is one of the largest and most well-preserved concentrations of Victorian iron-front commercial architecture in the country. Postoffice Street, an important area of the Historical Downtown District, was restored in the 90s and has created a revitalized arts, entertainment and residential district including more than 25 historical buildings. Besides the growing number of residential lofts, the area includes Gallery Row with galleries of sculpture, photography and fine arts. The street is a must for shopping, unrivaled for the number of quality of Antique and Collectible stores. Many boutiques and services complete with the wide offerings available to shoppers. The 36-block district offers more than 100 unique shops, restaurants and art galleries. The variety of merchandise to be found includes antiques, home décor, gifts, souvenirs, jewelry, books, and clothing for the whole family.

Historic Pleasure Pier Amusement Park

Featuring waterfront fun and entertainment like no other Gulf Coast destination,

the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier features family-oriented attractions including rides,
