Luxury waterfront condo next to beach w/ shared pools, hot tub, & more!

This gorgeous oceanfront Galveston vacation rental rental is a luxury condo featuring a private balcony, amazing ocean views, a spacious interior, and access to the community's pool and hot tub. When you stay here you can relax in comfort while enjoying the closeness of the sea.

Located on the west side of Galveston Island, this oceanfront condo is part of the luxurious Pointe West Resort. Downtown Galveston is about 22 miles away, on the other side of the island, and there you can find a huge array of eateries, shops, and activities. Throughout the area you can walk on the beautiful beaches, go fishing, and take scenic drives.

With three bedrooms and three bathrooms, this home has plenty of space for eight people, so this is a perfect place to bring the whole family or two smaller families to stay. Step into the living room to find stylish, comfortable seating. Watch some cable TV or a DVD, access the WiFi, or simply sit and chat with the other guests. Hardwood floors, a beach cabana-type color scheme, and plenty of sunlight make this room a pleasant place to gather.

An open, full kitchen is right next to the living room. Granite countertops, gleaming stainless-steel appliances, and lovely white cabinets create a kitchen that will be a joy to cook in. With all the equipment and cooking tools you may need, whipping up tasty meals here will be fun! Just on the other side of the kitchen is a bonus room set up with another TV and a sofa, so this would be a great place for kids to watch their morning cartoons while the adults drink their coffee and chat in the front living room.

When it's time to head to bed, walk down the hallway to find two of the bedrooms. The first has a queen-size bed as well as a dresser to store your belongings, a walk-in closet, a TV, and an attached full bathroom. The second room has two twin-size beds and yet another TV. You will also find another full bathroom, as well as a laundry area which will come in handy if anyone gets their clothes a little dirty while playing on the beach.

On the other side of the home is the master bedroom. This magnificent space contains a dreamy king-size bed where you will sleep soundly, a TV for watching late-night talk shows before drifting off, and balcony access. An attached bathroom has a jetted tub that will be perfect for relaxing bubble baths, as well as a glass shower and a large walk-in closet. Altogether, with these three bedrooms and a fold-out sofabed in the bonus room, this home can comfortably accommodate eight guests.

Outside you will find a private balcony, complete with seating and amazing views of the surroundings and the ocean. Have a seat on the patio furniture and watch the sunlight shimmer off the water, listen to the gulls, and feel the gentle breeze.

Drive into Galveston proper to find ample dining, shopping, and recreation options. There you can access the 32 miles of coastline, drive around the historic downtown area, and take a walk or bicycle ride along the seawall path. In the area you will also find fishing, hiking, and birding opportunities, so get ready for a fun-filled vacation!

With a luxurious interior, access to community amenities, and a fantastic oceanfront location, this vacation rental is the perfect place to plan a relaxing Texas beach getaway!

This condo is beautiful and well maintained. We especially loved the great view of the ocean. It is close to the beach and the resort. The beds and furniture were very comfortable. Unfortunately, the resort restaurant was closed during our stay. We would definitely stay here again - just not on Monday or Tuesday- when the restaurant is closed.
Miriam G P. Aug 2018
Loved it because of the delightful set up of the condo! Lovely decorated! Magnificently locates!
Sandra M. Jul 2018
This was the perfect place for our family unit. The condo was beautiful and fit our needs. Close to both the beautiful, relaxing beach and the incredible pool and hot tub. Will definitely rebook this unit on our next Galveston excursion.
Sean R. Jul 2018
well kept condo ideally located near beach club with great ocean front views. Highly recommend.
Kristin B. May 2018
Great amenities, close to the beach and awesome condo!
Tonja J. Apr 2018
This place was simply BEAUTIFUL!!! It was the best home-away-from-home that we have stayed in a long time. The views were great, the home was spacious, and extremely clean! We will visit again!
LEANNE P. Apr 2018
The condo was amazing! Relaxing was instant the moment we walked in. Amazing views of the ocean and terrific attention to detail throughout. Could not have asked for a more heavenly weekend away!
Brad T. Mar 2018
Relaxing spring break weekend. Beach and facility are very nice. This condo is extra close to the boardwalk so not much walking. We will be back!
Jane B. Aug 2017
The condo is furnished very well inside and out. The views are fantastic from the patio. This layout is perfect for families. The unit was clean and had plenty of linens. The building is very close to the club house and pool.
We will stay again in this unit and recommend to others.
Kelly C. Aug 2017
It's further down the coast which makes for a much calmer vacation. We had a very nice relaxing king weekend.
M Jane S. Aug 2017
Being within walking distance of the beach and pool were a BIG plus for us! The condo was very welcoming and well-supplied.
Sally T. Jul 2017
This condo was perfect for our family of 5! It was very clean, nicely furnished, and was spacious enough for us to be comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the porch in the evening breeze. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking and wish we had stocked up on groceries in Galveston before driving out to Pointe West. The beach was clean and well maintained. It was nice to have the wrist bands so we could swim at the beach club pool after swimming at the beach. The condo was in a great location on a corner so we had an unobstructed view and sounds of the beach. We used the Pointe West boardwalk to the beach since it had a place to rinse our feet and the other boardwalk had a rattlesnake nesting near the beach end!
Overall our vacation at A Great Escape surpassed our expectations!
Kristin M. Jul 2017
It was awesome! We will definitely be back! Thanks!!
James S. Jul 2017
The attention to details, decor and amenities, made this July 4th vacation the perfect stay at the beach. Each morning would begin with coffee on the balcony and a walk on the beach. We just loved popping over to the beach club for a quick dip in the pool before starting our adventure for the day. We did it all....Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn, shopping on the Strand. We brought a canopy and a hammock for chilling on the beach all week. This vacation home is perfect for enjoying your Galveston getaway.
Ty C. May 2017
Great condo with everything you need for a relaxing stay. The view of the beach was great to wake up to everyday. The atmosphere is quiet and the resort had every amenity.
REID M. May 2017
Good bang for your buck
Ian J. Apr 2017
The apartment was lovely, the view was fantastic and there was nothing between us and the water, which was really nice. The apartment was sparkling clean, had all the cooking amenities we could want (we cooked every night we were there instead of going out). I'd strongly recommend this place!
Leah O. Apr 2017
We have lived outside of Houston for 9 years and haven't stayed in Galveston yet as we thought all of it was like in town Galveston and weren't into that. We LOVED Pointe West and were pleasantly surprised at how nice and peaceful it was out there. The condo was great and such a good size for vacation! Others we've stayed in in Florida were much smaller but this was perfect. Only thing I woukd say is watch it for snakes!! We had no clue and saw the Rattlesnake warning sign under the boardwalk and saw one slither ahead of us one day!! Overall a wonderful stay!
Rhett B. Apr 2017
This unit was a very nice cozy place The beaches in Galveston are not the cleanest but we still had a wonderful time. The pool was awsome I do wish we had our own personal grill though. The access to the beach couldn't of been better and the balcony was so far the best part if I visit Galveston again I'm hoping I can stay in this very same unit
Robyn H. Mar 2017
We had a great time during spring break. The condo was very nice. It was the perfect layout for our group of seven. It was clean and comfortable. The beach club was perfect for the kids. We will stay again.
JIM P. Mar 2017
Really well appointed and so homey.
Patricia R. Nov 2016
When we checked in on Monday, the elevator was not working.
At first, the office indicated they didn't know about it, but then changed their story later to "the part has been ordered". A permanent 3rd floor resident of that building informed us of ongoing elevator problems.
Vacasa, however sent out a representative to investigate/respond to our complaints.
The hours for the exercise room don't open till 9...curious!
There was no one in the office on Thanksgiving...interesting that Galveston is a tourist destination and the office is closed on a holiday???
When we left on Friday, the elevator still wasn't working.
Our family-members family with disabilities had to cancel their attendance to our holiday celebrations because of the non-working elevator.
Vacasa was responsible and helpful...the on site staff...not so much.
Stephanie W. Oct 2016
The view was beautiful and the house was phenomenal. We loved having so much space to ourselves and the pool was a wonderful option. Will definitely be back and recommend further! :)
Alice S. Sep 2016
Just stayed a couple of nights at Great Escape, but had a great time! Property was very clean, staff at Vacasa and Pointe West were very helpful and very polite! Will definitely stay there again.
Jack D. Aug 2016
Very nice until we discovered fleas.
Manager response:
The Property Manager inspected the property and was unable to find any evidence of fleas; as a precaution the condo was fogged. We feel confident that fleas are not present in the home.
Cindy H. Aug 2016
Great views! Great furnishings, well decorated. Well maintained! We love coming to The Great Escape!
Dan B. Aug 2016
Great getaway
Heather T. Aug 2016
Overall, we absolutely loved the condo. The balcony overlooking the beach was beautiful. Loved the separate area for the kids to play & watch TV. Other than the flea issue and the fact that I would have liked the queen bed to be a little more comfortable. This by far has been our favorite condo at Pointe West. The cleanliness, the location and the layout were superb.
Jennifer M. Aug 2016
This is our third year to have a summer vacation at Pointe West. Always a great time. The Great Escape was amazing so close to the pool we loved it!
Carrington B. Jun 2016
Beautiful place. Great location and views. Be aware- minimally stocked in the kitchen and no beach gear provided at all. Also the white lattice structure in the pictures outside the patio houses a dumpster- it's gross and horribly smelly when staff opens to dump garbage or they empty it.
Judy B. Jun 2016
We had a family reunion for approximately 60 people at Pointe West in June. Each family had their own condo, scattered around the property. I thought ours had the best location, with easy proximity to the pool, restaurant, gym, Etc. One of the many boardwalks to the beach was a literally outside our door. The three bedroom - three bath floor plan was excellent. We were all very impressed with the quality of the furnishings and the cleanliness of the condo. The kitchen was fully stocked, as promised, although I wish there had been a few more grocery "staples" available for guests. If we return to Pointe West, we would definitely seek out this same condo bc of the superior location and the quality of furnishings and upkeep. We used the full sized washer/dryer multiple times. We also ate several meals and snacks at the restaurant at the pool area and the food was good (as were the margaritas). There isn't any shade at the main pool-bring sunscreen and hats!
Michael S. Jun 2016
Literature for the property said that owners beach gear (IE: chairs ,kids toys, floats )were available for use by renters. Based on this we did not take any of the items we own. There was a cage full of the gear, that belonged to our unit,but we did not have access.
Its a very nice place, just be sure to take your own beach gear.
Rochelle B. May 2016
This is a great place to stay and it's all about location and the Pointe West area has its own restaurant and the owner of the restaurant is very friendly and takes great take of the customers. Will stay here again. Can't beat the view and the location.
Spencer R. Apr 2016
We loved Our stay at the Great Escape!! The layout was prefect four our family of six. Sunrise on the patio with a cup of coffee, devotion, and my wife was a highlight of the vacation! The patio furniture and set up made this happen. The views were phenomenal. Vacas customer service exceeded our expectations and we will highly recommend them to friends and family. The beach club at the property was amazing....we loved the pool, hot tub, overlooking the ocean. We loved our meal at the beach club patio bar...could look out to the ocean I. One side and to the bay on the other....beautiful! The bayside pool also had a nice fire pit that we enjoyed s'mores with our friends while watching the sunset.
Cindy H. Mar 2016
Very nice condo. Loved the patio furniture, the pull out bed and the twin beds in 3rd bedroom. Really liked having access to the master closet. I rented others when the owners locked both the pantry and master closet. Will rent again!
Melissa A. Mar 2016
This was a lovely property!
Ashley H. Oct 2015
Our family enjoyed our weekend stay tremendously. It was a great location with large balcony overlooking the ocean. The only improvement we can suggest is to up the cleanliness of the bathrooms a notch to hotel standards and it would have been the perfect stay. We do look forward to being back soon!
Susan L. Aug 2015
Beautiful unit, great location close to both beach & pool. My family loved it!
Anne J. Jun 2015
Six ladies who meet annually at beach. This was certainly among the best ever! Plenty of room; amenities such as games, etc. Short walk to beach, very close to pool, hot tub provided by resort.
Ursula H. Jun 2015
The property and adjoining beach was well maintained. This condo is nicely appointed and contained more than adequate kitchen equipment. Found the overall experience quite comfortable and easy to manage. We enjoyed our stay immensely.
Peggy J R. May 2015
This condo was lovely and quite roomy--even for 6 adult ladies! The 3 bathrooms were a real plus. The views were awesome and just a very short walk to the beach. It was a bit of a drive into Galveston--about 25 minutes--but we knew that going into it so it really wasn't a problem for us. We went into town in the morning, did all we wanted to do, and then came back for the rest of the day.
I must admit that we found our particular a/c thermostat a bit daunting even though a couple of us are quite "techie" oriented. We never did figure it out to our satisfaction. Printed instructions on the wall would be a big help. Kitchen amenities were more than adequate for our uses: light breakfasts and suppers. Nice touch was the movies & games left by the property owners.
Diana P. Jan 2015
myself and 6 other nurses stayed her for a girls weekend. The condo is beautifully furnished with high quality pieces, the beds very comfortable and havingn three full bathrooms for 6 middle aged women was perfect! The fact that there is an elevator to take you from the parking garage to the floors above saved many trips up and down the stairs. I look forward to staying here again in the future.
Stephanie M. Jan 2015
We love it! The floor plan was prefect. This condo has a corner private patio. And it's only a few feet away from the deck that leads to the beach. The home had just enough essentials to get us stated and feel at home. It was very clean and just lovey. The home owners have such an awesome home!
