About Timo

Initially intended to be our weekend house our jobs took us to a different state. We decided to share our memories with the beautiful Pointe West resort and our beach house with our guests and hope you enjoy your stay at 'The Good Life,Too'.

Timo purchased this cottage in 2013

What makes this cottage unique

You'll have water views from every window in the house and enjoy the fabulous weather on Galveston island. The wide, private beaches are just a few steps away. The beach club can easily be reached walking using the hike trail (15 minutes) or by car (2 minutes). You'll enjoy owner parking privileges (covered, with an elevator to access the pool area). In the evening you can enjoy the warm breeze while using the provided charcoal BBQ on the patio together with a beer or dine at one of the 2 restaurants at the beach club. There are several restaurants close by or you can enjoy a huge variety of dining options in Galveston, go to the movies or enjoy a show at the Grand Opera. For those who like to club there's a vivid nightlife scene in Galveston as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a really great time during our stay in Galveston. It had been decades since I last visited the island, but I’m telling everyone how great the place was.

My extended family of 3 generations rented 2 homes from Timo and we were very pleased with the beach, the neighborhood and the accommodations.

We want to go back again next year, 2015.

What a beautiful view!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Sep 5, 2014

What can I say? The VRBO Bear had a great time in Galveston thanks to this beautiful property that had everything we needed! With 6 adults and 3 kids we had plenty of room and felt right at home. We had a great time making breakfast in the kitchen every morning and dinner every night. The kitchen was lovely and had spices and pantry items already stocked. There were also many pots and pans, utensils, plates and glasses to use, we didn’t need anything else! Access to the beach walkway is directly across the street from the house which was so convenient. It was perfect being so close to the beach and being able to walk over whenever we wanted – especially with 3 kids in tow and lots of sand toys to carry! We also went over to the Beach Club to enjoy the pool and views. It was absolutely beautiful and there was plenty of space without feeling overcrowded. The home has a grill, which we did not use, but it was nice that it was provided just in case. There is also an outdoor shower on the back of the house which was VERY useful and we used it many times to wash off the sand from our feet after being at the beach. There are also beautiful views of the bay from the balconies on the back of the house and we got to see some beautiful sunsets. Timo was very responsive and helpful in providing all the information we needed prior to our stay. He even sent an activity guide he created for things to do or restaurants he recommended. This beach cottage was the perfect place to get away from it all and relax on the beaches of Galveston! We had a great time and would love to go back!

Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Amazing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The convenience of the house next to the beach made it easier to handle 4 little kids. The house is very well prepared with everything we needed: towels, linens, kitchen household, beach toys, beach chairs and umbrellas etc. The shower outside was great to enter the house with no sand (and it was hot shower too! great for the kids that were a little chilly from the beach).

We used the beach club, the part where lazy river is located. Great place for kids. Be aware that it is in a different location from the Registration Centre, so don't unload everything when doing registration if you are planning to go to the lazy river and kids pool area!

Timo is a great owner that responded to all our needs.

No doubts we will come back!!

Thank you VRBO and thank you again Timo.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location to the beach. Timo is great to work with, took care of our minor issues right away. Plenty to do in downtown Galveston, especially in late Feb. Galveston has the third largest Mardi Gras celebration in the US. House was clean, kitchen was well equipped. Plenty of great restaurants, look up Nonno's and Fisherman's wharf, near Pier 21.

Lovely Long Fall Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 and 2 small dogs thoroughly enjoyed our long 4-day weekend. Coordination with the owners was so easy and all responses were quick and very detailed. The house is ideally located with good bay views off the back porch and partial gulf views from some windows and the underneath patio. The house is located near one of the walk-over bridges to the beach and you arrive quickly to a clean and sparsely populated beach. The house was very clean and stocked with everything we needed. Overall, it was a wonderful and relaxing stay.

Great Pointe West vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the Pointe West beach house. The 3 bedrooms and 3 baths was perfect for our family of 6 adults and 3 littles. The kitchen is such a nice size. Loved the large table and comfy sofas in the family room. Having 1 large open space was perfect for us. The home was very clean, well kept and had comfortable furniture. It was great to have a nice TV and wi-fi. One of the best aspects of the location is the beach path right across the street. This made getting to the beach an easy walk! Pointe West is a great family area. Beach is not crowded and the pools, particularly the sunset pool at the condos is perfect for families. It is a little drive to the pool, but less than 5 minutes.

My only suggestion would be some pot-holders, more paper towels and trash bags. Overall a great spot. We hope to come again
