ArthurBeachBay I - 3 BR WATERFRONT W INCREDIBLE VIEW, Includes Golf Crt, Kayaks,Bikes,Paddle Board

NOTE: If you do not see your dates available, please free to message or call us. We have two other units in the same building that may be available that come with similar amenities.

You will be absolutely amazed how beautiful the view is from this condo. Our building is the closest you can get to the water at Pointe West. You will want to spend hours and hours just sitting on the balcony taking in the gorgeous view, watching birds, etc... Guests appreciate that the bay is only 12-18 inches deep. They can turn their kids loose with the kayaks and sit on the balcony and watch them worry-free. Fishermen love wading out right in front of the condo.

- Enjoy Incredible Sunsets and Bird Watching right from the balcony.

- Fish, Crab, Kayak, and Paddle Board right in front of our building.

- Walk or Bicycle, or take the golf cart to the Pointe West Beach Club or Lazy River Pool .

- Enjoy miles of gorgeous, clean, private beach. Pointe West by far has the best beach on the Island. If you have been to Galveston before, you won’t believe your eyes when you see how nice our beach is.

- If you have to work, you’ll love that we have free Wi-Fi, a desk in one of the bedrooms, and a printer that works with smart phone and tablets.

- We are handicap accessible. We have wide doorways and an elevator. There's also an elevator at the Pointe West Beach Club**. Guests can even make arrangements with the beach club to use their beach-ready wheel chair free of charge.

- The Pointe West Beach Club has a beautiful infinity edge pool, hot tub, kids pool, cabanas, grills, gift shop, internet usage (free wifi), workout facility, lockers & game room. The Pointe West Beach Club charges $10 per person at the entrance desk as guest registration fee for the duration of your stay during peak season. There is no charge for guest registration from mid September to the end of February.

Our condo is not part of a large rental pool we manage it ourselves. We try to keep everything extremely well stocked and in very good condition, as we want it to be when we stay there. Thru trial and error we have found a great cleaning crew, so you should find the condo to be very, very clean.

We are very family friendly and we let you use all our “stuff” for free. We have 4 kayaks, 2 bicycles, a stand-up paddle board, fishing poles, crabbing nets, beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, binoculars, loads of board games, DVDs, computer monitor & printer, pack-n-play, high-chair, etc.. We even have a golf cart for guests who book 3 or more consecutive nights. Most guests find all the extras we provide to be an incredible value! Renting all the stuff that we provide for free would cost about $500/day thru a rental agency.

We also have a very well equipped kitchen. If you’ve rented a VRBO type property before, you’ll be amazed at how well stocked our kitchen is. We often host Thanksgiving here for 18, so we have a lot of everything, and all kinds of cookware. If you forget to bring it, don’t worry, we probably have it!

Our check-in procedure is very easy. For optimum security, each guest gets unique door code that only works for the duration of their stay. Guests can change the 10 digit door code assigned to them to a 4 digit code of their choice that’s easy to remember. No one is given keys. Guests don’t have to drive anywhere to pick-up keys and there’s no chance that a previous guest or workman is running around with a key to your door.

SLEEPING CONFIGURATION:

Three Bedroom:

Master- King Bed

Bed 2 - Queen Bed

Bed 3 - Queen Bed

1 pack-n-play

Family Room - Queen Size Sleeper Sofa with high-quality "dream quest memory foam" mattress

ArthurBeachBay III: "Honeymoon Suite" VRBO 731216

** NOTE: As of 7/10/2017 the Beach Club Elevator is out of service. It could be out for several weeks or months as the elevator cannot be repaired and the is being replaced. In order to accommodate guests with mobility issues during this time there is a new wheel chair ramp at the beach club. Also there is a Lazy River Pool is at ground level.

** The elevator in our building is working great, but we only have one elevator for this building so we cannot guarantee that it will be working on the date of your arrival - 99,5% it will, but we can't guarantee it. This is a first floor unit - the garage is floor zero. If you have a member of your party who would be unable to handle one flight of stairs in the event of an emergency or short-term outage, you should probably look for a hotel where they have several elevators.

Why Lisa Arthur chose Gulf Coast

We purchased this condo because we wanted a quick & quiet escape from work that was also fun enough so that our college age children would enjoy it. It's a really easy commute from Houston and our kids love bringing their college friends here - there's so much for them to do. We love relaxing and watching birds from the balcony. Our kids love taking their friends to the beach club and lazy river pool. Best of both worlds for our family. (NOTE - the 3 bedroom was such a hit, that we later purchased a 2 bedroom in the same building. Together, they are perfect for large family gatherings, like Thanksgiving. See VRBO 561225 to get rates for both units.)

What makes this condo unique

Incredible View!!!!!! Feels very remote and very close to nature. Perfect spot for Bird Watching, Kayaking, Fishing, or just relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A family of 4 and a family of 5 stayed in this condominium. It was well appointed with comfortable beds and all the amenities that we needed to cook, play games, entertain children and watch consistently beautiful sunsets. The mosquitoes were quite bad the latter part of the week, but a fogger and Off! helped considerably. The club pool and beach were well maintained and front desk staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful in securing cabanas, planning activities for kids, and providing insight regarding club amenities. We will definitely plan on returning!



Recommended for: Families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, romantic getaway.

Very clean, updated condo and resort

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in 303 (3 bedroom, 2 bath). We enjoyed the large deck overlooking the bay with beautiful sunsets! Our 18 and 21 year old enjoyed kayaking, wading out in the bay, crabbing and fishing. We loved the pool and the food at The Pointe was delicious. We loved the condo and resort so much that we only went into Galveston sightseeing once, as we were content with what the resort and condo offered. This condo was nicely furnished with the staples you need. The only negative was that the lazy river, as it was small and did not have floatables to use. Would recommend this condo!

Bay access is fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay!! We had three kids and 2 adults and lots of room to spread out. The condo is immaculate and has many upgraded features. The balcony facing the Bay is huge and perfect for watching sunsets over the water! Beautiful!!! The storage bin is full of gear and we had a fantastic time using the paddle board and kayaks. water access is just steps away from the unit. The nearby Beach club was fantastic and great for spending the day pre- check in. Our kids loved the pool and we loved the food/drink service poolside. We will definitely be back and will recommend!!

Excellent place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from our vacation at Arthur's beach and bay and it was fantastic! We stayed in unit 103 and it had everything we needed - amazing views, fully equipped kitchen, clean and comfortable and lots of toys for my teenagers to play with. They fished, swam, kyaked and paddle boarded. Loved having access to the beach club. They had a great pool and private beach. Could not have asked for anything more. If you're looking for a great place to stay, you can't do any better than this!

GREAT RENTAL, PERFECT LOCATION & AMENTIES

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely pleased and not disappointed with the condo. Great location on the bay, just a few footsteps down to the water. Golf cart was well used to shuttle to the beach club. Kayaks and SUP were used on the bay as well.

The condo was a perfect accommodation for our family - 2 adults, 2 children (8 and 5) and 2 seniors. Very clean and well kept, comfortable and in a great location.

We will definitely consider booking again for our next Galveston trip.

Beautiful Beaches! Fabulous location for Bird Watching, Fishing, Kayaking, Crabbing, Sunset Watching, etc... Photographer's Dream! You can go into Galveston for countless amusements, including theater, shopping, museums, etc.. but probably won't want to once you experience how relaxing and beautiful it is just to sit on the balcony and soak it all in at the condo.

Our condo the closest condo to the water in Pointe West. We are right on the bay, so you can walk out the front door and you are seconds away from fishing or kayaking. Pointe West has two pools, the Beach Club infinity pool and the bay side Lazy River pool and we are half-way between the two. It's very nice to walk here. We have low traffic streets and lots of trails for bicycle, pedestrians and golf carts. We are a 7 minute walk to the Pointe West Beach Club, 7 minute walk to the bay side lazy river pool, and 5 minute walk to the beach. There is parking area at each pool, so if you don't like walking you can go by car, golf cart, or bicycle.

Guests will enjoy free use of 2 kayaks, 2 stand-up paddle boards, 4 bicycles, etc... We also have a golf cart that guests can use free of charge if they book at least 3 nights with us and the golf cart is working (we can't guarantee it's availability so we don't charge for it)

If you are only booking 2 nights and you still want a golf cart or you want a larger golf cart (ours is a 4 passenger electric cart) then you can contact one of the Island's rental agencies where our guests receive a 25% discount on golf cart rentals and a 10% discount on the other items that they rent.

Our cleaning service offers a "concierge services". you can book with them directly for grocery delivery, baby sitting, pet sitting, holiday meal catering, and even to a massage therapist visit the property.

We are on the complete opposite end of the Island from the Cruise Terminals, bars and restaurants about 26 miles, or 35-40 minutes depending on traffic and about 20-25 minutes away from amusements like Moody Gardens, Water Slides, Miniature Golf, etc...

For boaters, you can launch small boats (kayaks, paddle board, canoe) right in front of the condo. There is a public boat dock across the bridge at San Luis Pass. There's a private Marina 6 miles to the east in Sea Isle.

For Deep Sea Fishing, there are charters that take off from Galveston and Surfside. We are about half-way between the two locations and can make some recommendations. Email us for further details.
