Why Linda or MaryAlice chose Gulf Coast

The location to the lazy river pool is excellent especially for those who have small children. The sunset views are simply spectacular. You will relax the moment you walk in the door to this island gem.

What makes this condo unique

We can't say enough about the view. It took are breath away the first time we walked in this condo and continues to take our breath away with every visit.

Relaxing on the balcony while reading a book is a favorite past time. The kids are below enjoying the pool and everyone is happy. It is paradise here!

Perfect end to the summer

  • 5 of 5

From check-in to check-out, our stay at Cacablanca exceeded our expectations. The property was in great shape, very clean, well furnished, and included amenities that made it feel like home. The only issue we had was with the wi-fi connection, which did not work, but that meant we had to treat our trip like a vacation and not let work interfere (a blessing in disguise, as it turned out).

Our 4 year old son loved the pool with a lazy river, which was just a short walk from the condo. The beach was clean and not crowded. We walked to it one day and drove on the beach another (be careful not to drive where it's prohibited). If you like fishing, the bay is practically out your back door. We saw people wade fishing in waste-deep water all day, every day.

We liked the fact that the condo was a good distance out of Galveston because it meant less traffic. It was no problem making the short drive to Galveston to take in the typical tourist attractions. However, we loved the restaurants and stores closer to the condo. Our family found Shrimp 'n Stuff, a food truck in Jamaica Beach, to have excellent seafood. Nate's, also in Jamaica Beach, is always a good choice for seafood, steak, or burgers (just bring your patience, the service can be slow, which is part of its charm). If you want good pizza, we liked the Blue Water Grill (Jamaica Beach). And, of course, the Point (a restaurant that services the condo community) was an excellent option. Because you're on an island, expect to pay a bit more for food. We found, however, that the food was always of high quality (no one wants to pay more just to eat bad food).

Our stay was memorable for any number of reasons. For that we are grateful to the owners for sharing their small piece of paradise with us. We will definitely be back again.

Nicely furnished, clean, felt very comfortable and enjoyed the stay tremendously

  • 5 of 5

First impression i got of the property is that it is very accessible. From having a parking spot with shade in addition there's an elevator which is excellent. The keyless door system is wonderful, when I went inside the unit i noticed it was furnished nicely, especially the balcony. The view is great, its close to the water and the property is close to the amenities. Very pleased with the vacation and would recommend this unit to everyone.

Great condo rental!

  • 4 of 5

This Point West condo was a very nice unit. It was very clean, well maintained, and had everything needed for a nice stay. I would definitely recommend this condo to friends, but I would let them know that it is out of the way from the attractions in Galveston. The distance from the popular Galveston attractions was the only shortcoming this unit had. If you are looking for a VERY nice condo to get away, Point West is it!

Everything was wonderful. It was a comfortable and clean condo. We will only stay at this condo when we visit Galveston! Next time we will for sure bring fishing poles...we watched people fishing in the bay from our balcony.

Car: recommended

The beach is private and allows no cars to drive on it other than emergency vehichles. The home owners association has the sand raked to keep the seaweed to a minimum. Each condominium or home has a full size kitchen and laundry within the unit. They are comfortably sized for the whole family to have plenty of space to unwind and relax. Paved golf cart paths go under the roadway to connect the bay and beach side. You can walk, ride bikes, roller blade or rent a golf cart to transport yourself from oneside to the other on this tip of Galveston Island. Come experience the Galveston you didn't know existed.
