About the property

Don't let your time here feel like it is 'Wasted Time.' As soon as you walk in the front door, all your worries will melt away and you can focus on the important things - grilling, fishing, swimming, and relaxing. Our house enjoys beach views from the front steps and the back balcony. Gaze off the back balcony to a tranquil pond with a sparkling fountain.

Our house is located at the beautiful Pointe West resort on the west end of Galveston Island. Pointe West is a master planned development with private beach and is a one-of-a-kind location on the island. Our house is less than a 5 minute walk to the beach and we are a 20 minute walk to the Beach Club, or a 5 minute drive. The Beach Club is truly a resort, with pools, a lazy river, hot tub, nature walk, restaurant, bar, fitness center, etc. The Beach Club charges $10.00 per person (3 and older) for the length of your stay from March 1 through Labor Day Weekend. There is no charge the rest of the year.

'Wasted Time' is designed to make you and your family comfortable. Cable TV and a DVD player are in the living room and the kid bedroom for your enjoyment. Both TV's are also equipped with Netflix. You'll find wireless high-speed internet and long distance calls in the US at no extra charge. Feel free to pack light, we have a washer and dryer for you to do a quick load of laundry.

Downstairs in the garage you will find everything you need for the beach; chairs, canopy tent, boogie boards and a wagon to take it all with you. You will also find a patio underneath the house complete with picnic table, chairs, hammock, and a charcoal grill for you to enjoy. All you need to do is bring yourself, we have the rest taken care of. For those of you with small children, we also have a stroller for your convenience.

Seven Seas Grocery Store is the closest fully stocked grocery store and is 7 miles from the house. The Strand, Pleasure Pier, Academy Sports, Walmart, Randalls, and the rest of Galveston is approximately 30 minutes from the house.

*NOTE: I have no sub-agents renting my property for me and you will only deal with me. Rent with confidence if you are renting from me through VRBO or Homeaway.

About Morgan Koon

Our family (dad, mom, sister, brother-in-law, brother, sister-in-law, my wife and I) realized our dream of owning a beach house. We are originally from California, but now live in Dodge City, Kansas, Garden Plain, Kansas, and Jackson Michigan. Two are nurses, two are doctors, and two are attorneys. Our parents did an exceptional job raising us and we are glad we get to enjoy our house with them!

Morgan Koon purchased this house in 2016

Why Morgan Koon chose Galveston

We love Pointe West and Galveston. We hope to share some of our love with you during your stay. The private beach was the biggest selling point for us. Having been to beaches across this world, Pointe West offers the best of many of them. You will also find the tranquility of the property fascinating and superbly gratifying.

Galveston Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We are huge fans of VRBO and have used them often and in many locations. So we rented this place when we decided to spend several days in Galveston recently. Once again we were happy with our decision. The beach house was perfect for us --plenty room with a well thought out floor plan with 3B/2B and a great living dining space.

Of particular note, the owner of this property was exceptional in his efforts to make sure that our trip was an enjoyable one. Couldn't have asked for better!

Perfect Beach House to "Waste Time" with family and friends

  • 5 of 5

Our whole group thoroughly enjoyed our relaxed time together at this beautifully decorated house with a happy beach theme. We had absolutely everything we could possibly need to make our family vacation just perfect. In addition to the sparkling clean accommodations, a fully stocked kitchen, plenty of beach towels to go around, we were all just crazy about the boogie boards, the canopy tent to provide a little shade on the beach, beach chairs, all easily transported to the beach with the little red wagon provided. And, we all really appreciated the ping pong table which catalyzed a fierce family competition, with the 12 year old faring amazingly well against his pretty competitive uncle. We all had a wonderful time and appreciated all the lovely amenities, easy access to the beach, as well as use of the Beach Club with infinity pool, play room, gift shop, and a restaurant super tasty food choices. Our stay just couldn't have been any sweeter. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
