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.

Great condo and resort. This condo is as close to the beach and Beach Club as you can get. Great l

  • 5 of 5

Great condo and location. Located in the building directly to the right of the Beach Club (large infinity pool, gameroom, restaurant, bar) when standing on the Beach looking back at Point West. The condo is Beach front. About 100' from the walk-over to the beach. Most convenient location within Point West to both the beach and the Beach Club pool. The Beach Club has a large infinity pool, tons of lounge chairs, a toddler wading pool on the lower deck, a restaurant, wait staff. You can take a cooler in but everything has to be sealed and never opened. No alcohol can be brought in but it can be purchased. Staff will check your coolers. Condo has a king bed in the master, fold out couch in the living room with a nice foam topper for extra comfort, 2 twin beds in the second bedroom along with a twin trundle (foam topper). The twin trundle fits perfectly between the 2 twin beds for 3 people to sleep comfortably. Everything needed for the kitchen was provided as well as bath linens and the option to borrow Beach towels. Point West is on the furthest end of the island. There is a grocery store within 15 miles of it that has everything you need. A pizza place within 25 miles as well. We loved the resort feel and more secluded and less commercialized area. If you plan to venture into Galveston near the Sea Wall for dining and entertainment experiences daily, you may get tired of driving back and forth. We stayed 6 nights and drove to dinner, fishing excersions, miniature golf, etc 3 times and thought it was great. There is covered parking right below the condo. The owner has a wagon you can use to drag stuff to the beach which was very helpful. They also have beech chairs, umbrella and sand toys you can borrow. There is a second pool with a small lazy river in the Point West resort. It isn't far but in my opinion, you would want to drive to it. It is probably 1-2 miles further west. We drove to it and enjoyed that pool too. You can take coolers and snacks into the lazy river pool area. We had a great time and plan to go back!

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family had a great time at this Pointe West property. It was clean, convenient to the beach and club and didn't have any problems while we were there. My family was able to relax and enjoy the beach atmosphere. The owners answered any and all questions with no problems and we will most definitely be staying there again. I recommend this property as well as the entire Pointe West area.

Great place with a great view.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying in this complex and first time staying in this unit. This unit was as close as you can get to the beach with a wonderful unobstructed view. The condo was clean and came with all the basic essentials needed to get through the week. Amenities were a short walk away, including the pool, workout room, and restaurant/bar. Although the heart of Galveston was about a 25 minute drive north, it meant that down on the south end the beaches right out your front door were nearly empty. The beach itself was clean and the kids had a blast using the sand tools, tube, and body boards found in the units downstairs storage unit. My wife and I appreciated the chairs and sun canopy in the storage unit. We all had a great time and will definitely reserve this condo for future trips to Galveston.

Relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Condo overlooks the water. Super convenient to walk to beach. Beach crowd is limited so we had plenty of space. The condo itself was nice and we ate most our meals on patio deck looking at the water. It's also right next to the Beach Club. So the good/bad is that you are super close to go to the pool but also close to hear the music/entertainment. Overall, we enjoyed it and recommend the place.

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.
