Gulf view home w/deck, w/shared pools & hot tub, beach access - 2 dogs OK!

Spend an unforgettable vacation at this Gulf-facing Galveston home, a dog-friendly retreat within Pointe West Resort! With shared amenities that include an infinity pool, a bayview pool with a lazy river, an oversize hot tub, a gym, and a gorgeous beach, you'll be surrounded by opportunities for relaxation and fun!

This air-conditioned home is part of Pointe West Resort, a thousand-acre property on the postcard-perfect west end of Galveston Island. Spend your days lounging on the beach (a three-minute walk away), and take regular walks to the Beach Club with an infinity pool, kids' pool, hot tub, gym, and game room. Rent a golf cart to explore the local paths, treat your family to a day at Moody Gardens, or fly down the slides at the Schlitterbahn Waterpark (both are 20 miles northeast).

When you're not floating in the lazy river at the resort's Sunset Pool, you'll have a light-filled living space with a kitchen with a dishwasher, and a reverse floor plan that highlights views of the Gulf and bay. Rinse off in the outdoor shower, get the gas grill going for dinner on the patio, and play board games on the deck with your two dogs at your feet (a 25-lb. weight limit and a nightly pet fee apply). Back inside, as your swimsuits spin in the washer/dryer, you can watch your favorite movies and sports teams on the four TVs and DVD player.

Find an endless array of adventures at this Galveston home!

It was a perfect getaway! Would love to stay again.
Mark U. Oct 2020
It was fine, we stayed here last year and liked it so we came back.
Jessica M. May 2020
The house dirty - dishes not cleaned, but put away in cabinets, there was a dead roach among a bunch of dust and dirt in one of the bathrooms, the carpet is dirty and walls all banged up. There were very few eating utensils for a party of 6. The dryer doesn’t work so you can’t do loads of laundry. Over a three day period, we were never able to use the pool that has a fee per person bc the beach club was impossible to contact. The cable doesn’t work, thank god we only needed it for 1 hour out of three days for kids. The beach was nearby and clean. This property is overpriced for what you get, especially a $200 cleaning fee to walk into a dirty house.
Manager response:
Hi, Jessica! Thank you for staying with us and telling us about your experience. The dryer has been repaired, and housekeeping has been addressed. We have notified the owner of the need for more kitchen items. Please note the beach club often changes their information, and we do our best to keep our guests up to date. Thank you!

I love it.
Stacie L. Mar 2020
Carpet and walls are filthy. House needs a gooood cleaning all around. Cable did not work entire stay (4 days) and dryer worked for about 10 min then stopped never to work again due to lack of communication from management. Convenient to the beach - inconvenienced by everything else.
Manager response:
Stacie, we apologize for the house not being cleaned as thoroughly as is our standard. Please know that local staff is available to assist with any cleanliness issues you encounter while in the home. We hope to get the chance to host you again! Thank you.

Great location in Galveston. Just a short walk to the beach. Quiet area. The home needs some TLC but nothing that some paint wouldn't take care of. Slept well and the kitchen had everything we needed.
Manager response:
Hi David, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We appreciate your feedback regarding potential improvements we can make to our home. We hope to host you again soon!

We started a family tradition of celebrating Thanksgiving at Pointe West in Galveston. This makes our 2nd year. Chateau by the Sea served us well.
Amanda k. Nov 2019
The whole family loved it.
Carole D. Sep 2019
Close to a great beach w/easy access.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your thoughts on your experience. The property manager inspected the home to verify each bed has a mattress on it. The sofa bed is a new couch, and we were unable to locate any protruding springs or mechanisms. We hope to see you again!

It was a good time for my family
Monica C. Aug 2019
Weekend trip with kids and their friends for my daughter’s birthday. The location is very close to the beach. The house was very spacious and lots of outdoor space to enjoy the fresh air. Had a wonderful weekend!
Irma T. Aug 2019
Not a fancy house but a beautiful house, accommodated all our needs, easy access to beach, loved the golf cart trails, only thing I couldn’t lock the garage not was able to find the pool, Other than that I will definitely be back again.
Marco P. Aug 2019
Next time we need to spend a week.

Nice views
Stacy C. Jul 2019
Loved the location and the amenities
Mindy F. Jul 2019
We almost didn't rent this property based on one previous review. Do NOT listen to what that person said.... all decks/railings were safe and had amazing sunrise/sunset views, the kitchen had plenty of appliances/silverware/pans for our family of 6, etc. I have been coming to the island for 30+ years, and you have to expect a certain amount of wear and tear from these rentals. I would definitely rent here again. Beach access was a breeze and the neighborhood was quiet.
Michael Ryan B. Jul 2019
We had a good time
MG T. Oct 2018
We had a very fun and relaxing time at Chateau By The Sea. The house had everything we needed and more! We will look forward to coming back with our family in the near future!

Kitchen was huge too
Lea B. Jul 2018
We had a lovely time at Chateau By the Sea. It was spacious for our family. We had the older kids, younger kids, and even the grand kids. There were a few items that needed attention, but every home needs maintenance. We definitely understand that, with a growing family. However, with the price and advertisement we did expect the accommodations to safe.

The seats at the dinner table were wobbly, the patio furniture on bedroom balconies had holed in seats, small ants in kitchen/master bath area, the balcony rails all need to be checked as two from the top deck fell out when leaned into. (safety issue).

Other than that, the outside shower was great addition. The new clean grill was perfect for grilling out downstairs and eating on the picnic tables. We didn't get to venture to the spa or game room, as time was limited. However, the walk to the beach was manageable (I'd suggest a wagon to pull or carry items over on) .

I'd also suggest additional laundry soap or dish packs. We cleaned up as we went along, There was plenty of linens and towels.
The family room was comfortable, for our family to enjoy a movie (we were never able to get cable, though we worked it out.) There was a DVD payer, but no DVD's . Id suggest bring some.

Thanks again for letting us rent your home. we all got plenty of exercise and sunshine!
Manager response:
We appreciate having these things brought to our attention. We have tightened the loose furniture and sprayed for ants. Thanks!

This home is perfect for someone looking to just stay near the beach without any frills. Great for kids or partiers as they wouldn’t have anything to break.
To begin with the positives: large enough for a big group. Fully stocked kitchen items. WiFi. Easy walk to the beach.
Cons: carpet is in most of the house and there were tons of burrs/stickers that we were all stepping on. The master doesn’t have a ac return so there was no airflow
The smoke alarm was beeping when we arrive (though the site manager was able to provide us with new batteries). The furniture is dated but functional.
I wouldn’t stay here again but I could see how it may fit someone else’s needs better.
Manager response:
We apologize for these issues. We do provide a fan in the bedroom to help with airflow, and we are purchasing a dehumidifier to help with the moisture. Burrs are a problem in the summer, but we will continue to do our best to keep up with them. Thanks!
