About the property

ArthurBeachBay II - 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Sleeps 5 - 6 Persons

ArthurBeachBay II - WATERFRONT w SPECTACULAR VIEW, Includes Kayaks, Bikes, Paddle Board

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 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.

- 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 registration fee mid-September through 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, crabbing nets, beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, binoculars, loads of board games, DVDs, computer monitor & printer, pack-n-play, high-chair, etc.. 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 $300/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.

** NOTE: The Beach Club elevator is currently out of service and a new elevator is expected to be installed by June 2018. 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 second floor unit - the garage is floor zero. If you have a member of your party who would be unable to handle two flights of stairs in the event of an emergency or short-term outage, you should probably look for a hotel where they have several elevators. If you choose to book our condo anyway, and the elevator fails, by default we will not process a refund or allow cancellation. As of 2/23/2018 guess now have the option of purchasing an "elevator protection policy". If the elevator is critical to your stay, please see our Rental Agreement for details.

About Lisa Arthur

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 - We also own a 3/2 in the same building. Together, they are perfect for large family gatherings, like Thanksgiving. See VRBO 561225 to get rates for both units).

Lisa Arthur purchased this condo in 2014

Why Lisa Arthur chose Galveston

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

Excellent location and activities

  • 5 of 5

Husband and I took our four boys and had such a great time. It was perfect for a family vacation.

CONDO- clean, lots of movies, books, great view. BEDROOMS-beds were great, the sheets amazing. The pillows were so comfy too Definitely one of the highlights of my trip as I went for relaxing! The sofa bed and air mattress was not super comfy, but my kids didn't mind. KITCHEN- had everything we could need to cook- including to make a crab boil dinner (with the crabs we caught from crab trap). TOYS- the bikes were definitely appreciated. The condo is halfway between each pool and a little bit of a walk. The bikes made that so nice. My boys absolutely loved the kayaks and paddle boards- we noticed not everyone had that available and it made for great included entertainment. Crab traps were a bit worn, but we still caught a few! And they found oysters right outside the condo in the bay.

BEACH CLUB- loved it! The kids favorite was the infinity pool although we spent time at infinity pool and lazy river pool. Definitely worth it! My boys had fun in the game room- there wasn't a ton of stuff, but still fun. Also, the beach access was great. The sand was the softest I have felt. The kids used the boogie boards in the Gulf.

We will definitely come back here!

Family of 4 – Awesome Condo

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a condo and not staying in a Hotel. My wife and I have 2 kids (4yr & 1.2yr). Neither kid has been to the ocean.

This condo was very nice and the Clubhouse was awesome.

The condo had all we needed. Highchair and Pack n Play for our youngest, a nice bed for our 4yr old. Fully equipped kitchen with all you would need. Nightlights throughout the condo so little one did not get scared at all. Also, they had a locked storage that had Beach Pails, Umbrella and all we needed.

Clubhouse - Worth it. The food was awesome, the pool was nice and even the kids pool was only 12in. So, our two stayed in that most of the time. Also, the walk to the ocean was over a nice long deck and the beach was never crowded because we were not on the seawall.

We had the best time here at this condo and we are already planning next year’s vacation here.

great place/marvelous people

  • 5 of 5

Well, what can I say. We had an absolutely splendid stay at this condo. We have stayed in many facilities to include places outside of the US, and this place was just special. It is furnished very well with comfortable couches, great dining area and the bedrooms are well furnished. And the view! ! The view is spectacular. The owners were extremely kind and responded immediately when the elevator needed repair; keeping us apprised of the repair schedule. The kitchen "pots/pans were more than adequate. Patio had plenty of furniture to use. For us most importantly; you know that the owners were a phone call or email away should you need help for absolutely anything and made you feel you could contact them anytime. I would highly recommend this facility to anyone; we will be returning next year.

thank you folks . . .

A great place for families to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is exactly as described. Plenty of room for four adults and one child. As we went in December we did not have an opportunity to use all of the many outside ammenities but I bet in the summer this place is a real blast.

We really enjoyed the large outside deck and watching the birds.

The house is well stocked with everything you will need for your stay and the condo was spotless.

We will look into this condo again for our next trip to Galveston.

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 miniature golf, 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.
