About the Property

5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

AMAZING WATERFRONT CONDO IN RESORT COMMUNITY WITH SPECTACULAR VIEW!

This rental is actually 2 condos located close together (above/below) in the same building, a 3/2 and a 2/2, priced and managed as a single rental. The building sits right on the bay - there's no other property in Pointe West that's as close to the water as this one.

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 as guest registration fee for the duration of your stay during peak season. There is no guest reservation fee from mid September through the end of February. (You will be responsible for payment of the fee directly to Pointe West when you arrive. It is not included in or covered by the fees quoted to you when making your reservation.)

Deal directly with the owners. Our condos are not part of a large rental pool. We only have these two condos - they are family owned. 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”. This includes 6 kayaks, 2 bicycles, a stand-up paddle board, fishing poles, crabbing nets, beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, binoculars, and board games, DVDs, computer monitor & printer, pack-n-play, high-chair, etc.. We even have a golf cart available to guests who book 3 or more consecutive nights. If you are the outdoors type and enjoy kayaking, you will find all the extras we provide to be an incredible value. Rental fees would run $125/day for the golf cart and $450/day for the kayaks/bicycles/paddle board (see rental rates at

We also have a very well equipped kitchen. If you have rented a VRBO type property before, you’ll be amazed at how well stocked our kitchen is. We often host Thanksgiving here for 16-18, 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!

If you want to save money, you can pay us directly by credit card or check instead of paying thru VRBO. When you pay us directly, there's no booking fee and we don't require you to purchase the $59 damage insurance policy. This can be a very significant savings. Call us and we will be happy to tell you how to do this.

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.

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, guests will get a "Friends and Family" discount when booking our nephew's boat, a 35' Carver Sportfish that holds 6 people and leaves out of the Galveston Yacht Basin. Email us for further details.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We bought this property for our own family to vacation at, but enjoy sharing it with others. We are in our 50s and have with 2 kids in college. Our kids love this property because they like hanging out at the beach club and riding in the golf cart. Also - they can get away from each other - one daughter can take her friends to the Beach Club, while the other lounges with her friends at the lazy River Pool. We love the peace and quiet of the condo, just sitting on the balcony and watching sunsets, and being close to nature - bird watching, shelling, kayaking and fishing. And, best of all, the absolutely SPECTACULAR VIEW - it's amazing!!!

Why the Owner Chose Galveston, TX, USA:
The building is elevator equipped and handicap accessible, so it works well when our parents come to visit - they are too old to be lugging suit cases and coolers up and down stairs. The beach club is also elevator equipped. We started with just a 3 bedroom unit, but after large several family gatherings, we decided to purchase a 2/2 unit on the floor above us. It works great when we have my parents and brothers and sisters visiting with their kids. We can all gather together easily for meals and at the same time, but at the same time, can also have some privacy.
