We liked it a lot and would come back

This was a great condo with all the amenities needed!

However, the floors need to be cleaned better by the cleaning crew. Within 1 hour of arrival and taking off shoes, our feet were sandy and black. We had to wear shoes the entire time while in the condo and our kids had to wash their feet (after showering when we returned from the beach) prior to getting into bed. Again, great condo, but floors needed a deep clean!
Manager response:
We are sorry to read housekeeping didn't do as well on the floors as they should have. We will follow-up with our team. Thanks!

We had 4 adults and 5 teens and it was perfect! Very clean, very spacious. Wonderful patio! You can walk to the pool Beach Club in two minutes and the beach is about 7-8 minutes away. Plenty of fresh clean towels and the kitchen is stocked with utensils and dishes, etc. Our only complaint was there was no backup trash bags or toilet paper, but the minimart is just a few minutes away. Overall it’s pretty far from the downtown Galveston area (40 minute drive) but we liked the more secluded beach location. Highly recommend!

Location to beach, lots of room for 5 adults & 3 kids, the front balcony railing needs some maintenance
Didn’t like having to wear masks everywhere - but had to due to COVID-19 - closed beaches on our last day
Manager response:

We take this feedback seriously and please know that local staff is available to assist with any issues you encounter while in the home. We hope to have the chance to host you again. Thank you!

We loved how close the beach was, The sunsets and sunrises... the quiet, nice atmosphere and surrounded By palm trees and beautiful landscapes. The home was well furnished and had everything you needed to enjoy your stay. The beach club and pool was super close and there’s a nice water faucet outside to rinse off before coming into the condo. There’s only one mishap, no wash clothes! I knew towels would be included but there was absolutely no wash clothes. Other than that. Perfect!

Great location, great amenities!

This vacation home was great for a big family. The property/complex is very pretty and fairly new. There are a few things to consider before booking. It’s a little off the beaten path of Galveston Island and is located on the far west side of the island, about a 30 minute drive once you get to the Seawall from I45. There are only a couple very small convenience grocery stores nearby, so it’s an hour round trip to get to the larger chain grocery stores from the property.

This listing boasts pool access in the title description, but don’t miss the fine print. There is an “amenity” charge for wristbands per person to have access to the pool on property during peak months. The VRBO listing does not specifically say what “amenities” that wristband is required for. This needs to be made much more clear in the listing. I chose this property based on pool and beach access and was extremely disappointed that I would have to spend an extra $100 for 10 people to use the pool.
The kitchen was a nice size and has plenty of essentials to cook a meal. The beach access provided was clean and had nice almost white sand. It’s a bit of a hike to actually get to the beach (about a 10 minute walk from this unit), so it was difficult to haul a lot of stuff.
The carpet in the unit was incredibly stained and worn and really needs replacing. This is probably contributing to a pretty heavy mildew smell in the unit. The pillows on the master bed were the absolute worst I have ever seen and totally unacceptable for a rental property. They were as flat as a pancake, and one of them only had stuffing in about 2/3 of it. The owners and/or management company should make the very small investment to replace them.
Otherwise, the unit was nicely decorated and comfortable. I would stay again, but I would try to be more prepared for some of the small issues I listed.

Really happy with this rental. Great location (close to the beach club), condo was nicely appointed and easy to access. Would highly recommend.

We hated to leave

This was a bit far out of town but Pointe West has a lot to do out there and the clubhouse and pool are awesome.

3 Moms and 6 kids stayed here on a cold March weekend. We loved it - ample space, family friendly games, and room to spread out. Close to the amenities and very clean. Very nice, and we will be back!

Given the time of year, our stay allowed for us to enjoy our first visit to the Gulf Coat in a very relaxed and less busy environment. The condo is located in a very nice and secluded spot.
Mark j C. Jul 2018
Our family really enjoyed this condo and the entire complex! Easy to get to the pool and restaurant/bar and beach! Would definitely do this again!
Billy C. Jun 2018
We had a lovely 3-night stay in this Condo. It was conveniently located within walking distance to the Beach Club with the large pool and the Beach. This was our third stay at Pointe West, and we are never disappointed!
