About the property

Galveston Beachside in Pointe West - sleeps 10-14!

Welcome to Las Brisas in lovely Pointe West.

***Beautiful new hard flooring downstairs and plush carpet upstairs, brand new appliances, new super-power air conditioner to keep you cool, King-sized memory foam bed in Master bedroom, Blackout drapes in all bedrooms and smart TVs throughout. This house just keeps getting better! ***

You will enjoy the proximity of the beach and having views of the ocean from the side of the balcony and views of the bay and the pond out back. Water views everywhere! The covered deck is a great location to enjoy the sunsets. This is the perfect place to share time with extended family, reconnect with friends and renew your soul.

Galveston Island has something for everyone.

For the young and the young at heart check out the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier - ride the roller coaster or the merry-go-round. Right next door at Murdoch's you can shop for island souvenirs or watch the surf and relax in the rocking chairs in the covered breezeway.

For the nature lover, check out Moody Gardens - we love the aquarium and the rainforest pyramids - you won't believe you are in Texas! If you want another water adventure, Schlitterbahn water park is a 30 minute drive from the house. Don't miss the Historic District and the Strand for shopping and local eateries like MOD Coffee House and The Mosquito Cafe. If you want to take in some history, check out the tall ship Elissa and the Ocean Star Off Shore Drilling Rig and Museum. Pointe West has a fabulous beach and there's so much to explore in Galveston - come rediscover the island!

As our guest at Las Brisas (an owner managed property) you will have easy access to the house via your personal lock code - which means no coordinating schedules to pick up/drop off keys and no danger of losing keys at the beach!

This beach house is a 3 bedroom cottage in the Pointe West beachfront community. Access to the beach is via a community boardwalk 3 houses away. Enjoy the balmy breezes and the sound of the sea while relaxing in the hammock in the shaded patio or on Adirondack chairs on the covered deck. Large master bedroom has a beautiful view of the pond and bay, king-size memory foam bed and futon, gorgeous bathroom and a private deck for watching the sunset. Guest room is on the first floor, with a large window with Gulf views and an adjacent bathroom. King and Queen bedrooms and main living have flat screen SmartTV's and cable. Bunk room has two twin over full bunk beds, private bath, a window with Gulf views and a SmartTV (no cable).

Sip your coffee in the morning on the back deck and watch local birds at the pond - Cranes, Cormorants, and Roseate Spoonbills just to name a few.

The Pointe West pools are open year round, but only the hot tubs are heated. Beginning March 1, 2017 guests over 3 years old will be charged a $10 fee/per person, up to 10 people to use the beach club. This fee covers the full week stay.

About Lauren Applegate

Texas A&M Aggie grads Doug and Lauren with two little girls who love the beach! We live a couple of hours away in The Woodlands, TX, and make sure to sneak away as often as possible to enjoy Las Brisas with our family and friends.

Lauren Applegate purchased this house in 2016

Why Lauren Applegate chose Galveston Island

After an extended family reunion in a Galveston we knew we wanted the opportunity to recreate the special moments in at our own property. We fell in love with Las Brisas at first sight! The back decks provide the perfect opportunity to relax and contemplate, while the ground floor provides great space for larger groups to grill and socialize. The well-maintained beach is just steps away and is private with no vehicles allowed. The dunes are a nesting ground for endangered sea turtles and the bird watching opportunities cannot be beat.

What makes this house unique

Las Brisas has it all! Walk across the boardwalk to enjoy the beach, return to an outdoor shower and fire pit perfect for making evening s'mores. Fully equipped with beach toys, beach towels, and all kitchen amenities. Additionally, Pointe West Beach Club offers swimming pools, heated hot tubs, crabbing pier, lazy river, gift shop and restaurant for a minimal per-stay per-person fee of just $10 up to a maximum of 10 people. Children 2 & under free.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We traveled from Northern Virginia to Las Brisas, Pointe West - it was our first time and we loved every moment on Galveston Island. Our time was spent on the beach enjoying the smooth white sand, playing with our grand dog, fishing, enjoying time with our grown children, going to the Club and swimming in the pool and having some delicious meals there, and enjoying the many spectacular views we had from the house on the various porches. We cooked many of our meals in the home and found all the tools we needed to prepare them. The home is very comfortable and comes very well equipped! Our weather was perfect and so was our stay. Thank you Applegates for sharing your home with us. It truly was PARADISE!

VRBO Bear stayed here

May 15, 2017

Las Brisas in Pointe West was the ideal place for the VRBO Bear and family to relax. The house was perfect and the owner, Lauren, was fantastic and very quick to respond to any questions. The home had everything we needed: comfortable beds; brand new kitchen appliances, games, TV with cable and Netflix, and the Bear’s favorite, multiple decks to relax and enjoy the sunset. Lauren even provided pack-n-plays and baby gates for the toddlers on the trip, so everyone was taken care of. The ground floor patio also had hammocks, a weber charcoal grill, fire pit, outdoor shower and hose to rise off sand, and a garage that was packed with everything the Bear needed for the beach: from beach chairs to sand toys and even a wagon to help with transportation. The beach access was only three houses down the block, and the Clubhouse with family friendly infinity and kiddie pools was a very quick drive. Staying for a week in May meant that during the week, we had the beach practically to ourselves, and when the weekend came around it was never crowded. Pointe West doesn’t allow cars on the beach - a huge plus when you’re a bear or have little ones running around. The VRBO Bear would definitely vacation at Las Brisas again.

This was an excellent place for two families with three kids each. Very well kept.

  • 4 of 5

Our families came from the Chicago area and absolutely loved this place. Very spacious and it has all of the little things that you would need for a vacation. Close to the Gulf and easy to get to the pools. The owners respond to questions and concerns very quickly. We would definitely look to come back.

Family-friendly Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect trip for two families with four girls. The proximity to the beach was amazing and the fact that everything we needed was stocked in the garage made things so easy. The house was lovely and comfortable for all. We are already planning our next trip.

We hired a yoga instructor to come for a morning class on the beach and it felt like we were really “away” from it all!

Lauren was quick to answer any of my preliminary questions and it made this first-time renter feel at ease. Thanks for a memorable Spring Break!

Perfect getaway! They had everything ammenity wise and a 50ft walk to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

A gorgeous vacation home with tons of space! From the moment we drove into for driveway, we knew we had made an awesome choice. There are several spaces to enjoy. I loved the master suite with the huge master bath! Decor was up to date and had a pottery barn feel. The 2 huge decks were the best! It was easy the whole time we we're there! We grilled every night! They had every dish or utensil you could think of! They have a full garage of beach toys, boogie boards, tubes, sun tents you are free to utilize. The beach was nice and racked. And PRIVATE. That was a great amenity. They were exceptional hosts and we hope to book it again!
