About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bath with large master suite and great views of the gulf and bay

Our home has some of the very best views on the island. The way our house is positioned along with our great location, you are able to see the beach and/or the bay from every room in the house and from our expansive decks. We are very close to the beach, too. You can walk, ride in a golf cart, or drive your car onto the beach (to help carry your stuff). One section of our beach is pedestrian only which really cuts down on the one day visitors. Even though it's a public beach, it often feels private. We love it!

Our home is located on the beautiful West End of Galveston Island in Pointe San Luis. We have a family friendly 3 bedroom/2 bath beach home with lots of deck space and great views of both the gulf and the bay.

The large master suite is the entire second floor of the home. The private deck off the master bedroom faces the beach, but the bay is also visible. There is a large living area with a recliner and 2 additional rattan chairs for entertaining and relaxing in the master. You can enjoy watching DVD movies or satellite TV on a 47” Flat Screen TV and DVD player. We also have a Wii with lots of games in this room. There are three large windows in the bedroom that overlook the gulf. It's a beautiful view day or night. The bed is a comfy queen size Temper-Pedic. There is also a Serta double size futon in the bedroom which can sleep an additional two people. We have a large master bathroom with a Jacuzzi jetted bathtub and separate standing shower. There is plenty of room for two to share this space with his and hers sinks. There is a bench for seating and plenty of storage space for your personal items. The south facing window has a great view of the beach and the north window a wonderful view of the bay.

The first floor has 2 additional bedrooms and 1 bath. The beach side blue room has a queen size bed, a 26” flat screen TV with satellite and a DVD player. The coral room has 1 queen bed with a twin xl bunk on top and a twin trundle underneath, a 32” flat screen TV, DVD player, and a Nintendo NES with games. You can see both the bay and the gulf from the window in this room.

The three bedrooms comfortably sleep 10 in beds. There is enough floor space in the master bedroom and the blue room to place an air mattress for two additional guests. We have done this many times with children.

The living room has a 37” flat screen TV with satellite and a DVD player along with many movies to watch. There is an assortment of board games to play and puzzles to put together in the armoire that houses the TV. The entire living room has large windows facing both the beach and the bay. The beach side of the house is located directly next to a designated wetlands area, so bird watching is really great here from inside the house or on the decks. We have DirecTV Satellite in all of the rooms and Wireless Internet available for entertainment indoors. We also have a landline that can be used for local calls.

The kitchen has all stainless steel appliances with granite countertops and ample cabinet space. There's a microwave, convection oven, glass cooktop, side by side refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, platinum Keurig for making coffee and tea, and all the usual things you would expect to have in a kitchen.

We have a full size Washer and Dryer located behind closed doors in the hallway on the first floor. This is really useful for washing and drying all the beach towels and swimsuits that you'll be using while enjoying a day at the beach and the pool.

Outside you can enjoy cooking on the grill. On the ground level in the shade we have a large picnic table for outdoor dining. We also have a loveseat swing for reading, bird watching, or just relaxing. There's additional built-in seating on the ground level patio beside the picnic table and the front flower bed. We own two lots with an oversized yard directly next to a designated wetlands area. Having the extra space is really nice for kids to play in and the wetlands area provides for great bird watching. There is an outdoor shower on the ground level with both hot and cold water for showering off the sand after a day at the beach.

We have two decks on the house with great views of the gulf and bay. The main level deck has comfortable adirondack seating for six. There is also a table and two bar height chairs for relaxing or eating outside. The private deck off of the master on the second floor has two bar height chairs and a round table.If you’re an early riser, this is a perfect spot to have your first cup of coffee and watch the sunrise. This is also a great spot to stargaze at night. It’s amazing how many stars you can see here on a clear night. You can hear the waves at the shore while locating the constellations.

We have a very nice private neighborhood pool for residents and their guests. It has a fabulous view of the bay. The pool is a great place to go after a day at the beach. With unobstructed views of the bay, you can watch beautiful sunsets poolside. There is also a covered picnic area and charcoal grills if you want to cook and eat while hanging out at the pool.

The West End has the most beautiful natural looking beaches on Galveston Island. There are so many birds and plants to enjoy on this end. The fishing is great down here, too. Our neighborhood, Pointe San Luis, has a pedestrian only beach with a dune walkover. This is a really nice feature as it is very family friendly and usually not crowded. If you prefer you can drive onto the beach so that you can easily unload your things at the beach access just across the street. If you rent a golf cart you can drive that onto the beach here, too.

Why Christal Rodgers chose Galveston

My husband and I both grew up spending summers in Galveston with our families and friends and have continued that tradition with our son. Several summers in a row we rented beach houses in Galveston. We had so much fun every time we came. Whether we did the touristy stuff, or just hung out and relaxed, we always had a great time. We finally decided a few years ago to purchase a home for ourselves. We spent a lot of time looking at different neighborhoods and homes. We fell in love with “Island Time” because of the amazing views. It is so peaceful on this end of the island. We love watching the migration of the birds, the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, the wildflowers covering the dunes. It’s just really beautiful down here. The house itself is a perfect fit for us, too. We love the layout with the master suite on the top floor. We have our own private hangout upstairs with amazing views from the windows and deck. The first floor has plenty of space for our son and another couple with children. The open concept layout is perfect for family time and entertaining. We also loved the large first level deck with views of the gulf and bay. It was a perfect fit for us and still is today. I just love it when we are here. I feel like a completely different person when we get to this end of the island. All of my city concerns just seem to melt away. I don’t worry about the time or getting a “To do list” done. That’s why we named the house “Island Time.” When we’re here we’re just more carefree about things. We’re on “island time” and don’t need to hurry or wear a watch. We just do things when we feel like it. I don’t know if it’s the smell of the salty air or the sound of the waves rolling onto the beach, or maybe watching the birds scamper along the shore. Whatever it is, I love it, and I never want to leave when we’re here.

Most Inviting and Welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend at the property during October 2016. The entire property instantly welcomed us in for a great mini-vacation. The house is perfectly comfortable for just a couple or a nice group. We had many guests through the weekend and all were easily accommodated. The house is very well appointed with beautiful decor throughout and every amenity you could need. You'll love the decks and the beautiful views. We spent many hours there. The kitchen is well equipped and easy to gather in while you cook. The beds are so comfortable that you'all have trouble getting out! And, be careful when you sit in the big, comfy recliner in the master suite .... It's heavenly! The beach is easily accessible and the outdoor shower is great for cleaning up after a beach walk. The owners are very attentive and easy to communicate with. Overall, the house was comfortable, clean, beautifully decorated and difficult to leave. We had a great time there and will definitely visit again!

Love It and Would go again

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! It was fun to have a large gathering place with lots to do. There are plenty of games (both board and video) for the kids. Trips to the beach were easy and the kids enjoyed the pool. We liked the fact that the parents could escape to the upper floor at night and the kids were at the bottom - gave us some peace and quiet with a big family! Christal and family are easy to work with and respond quickly to any needs.

Simply amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed this beautiful home. The home is well taken care of and stocked with plenty kitchen/bathroom items. There is both beach and pool access which is great for the kids. The view of the beach was nice and the cleanliness allowed my 10 month old nephew to even crawl. There's plenty of beds to accommodate a large family comfortably. Would definitely recommend this home to all my friends/family. There is about a 20 minute commute to the sea wall but we didn't mind the drive. Christal was available via phone/text and responded quickly to any questions/concerns I had. Will definitely be returning! Thank you for allowing us to have an amazing time and enjoy a peaceful stay! 😊

wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

The house was awesome. We took our adult sons and their families and had a great time. The views from the house are great. The house was very nice and the decor was very pretty. The owner was very easy to get a hold of and pleasant to deal with. She answered any question we had. I even called her on the weekend and asked her a good place to eat. She is very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone. Would love to stay here again.
