Great view of the beach.
Raenetta M.Feb 2020
Beautiful place, clean, directly on the beach. Approximately 30 minutes from the strand. Very quiet and peaceful. Basic cooking essentials - no seasonings so be sure and bring your own.
Deborah W.Jan 2020
We loved it. It was clean and ready when we got there. It had everything we needed.
Joyce B.Dec 2019
We could hear the roar of the ocean from the deck and we spent some time on the beach.
Philip B.Nov 2019
Very clean and well stocked with towels, and everything we needed
Jennie S.Oct 2019
We had a fun celebration and have great memories!
Michael C.Oct 2019
I have never rented a condo on the beach, it has always been hotels or extended stay resorts. We were so pleasantly surprised with our accommodations. The unit was absolutely beautiful and met all of our needs in every way. Really like the fact that there was nothing between our balcony and the beach. Definitely provided a private retreat for the adults with a great view. Even though the wind storm knocked out the power, it actually added to the weekend in a very subtle way. We will definitely be back, no question!
Kevin N.Oct 2019
we liked just about everything
Debbie L.Sep 2019
We had a wonderful time on our beach weekend. The condo was clean, laid out very well, had everything we needed already there, was convenient located to the beach. Thank you very much!
Lisa N.Sep 2019
We mentioned some maintenance issues that need attention
Tammy M.Sep 2019
It was great.

Rudy Z.Sep 2019
love location and the friendliness

We had everything we needed and more. It is a lovely place. Very clean and comfortable for all of us.

Kenneth C.Jun 2019
Location and view unbeatable
Unit over decorated for my taste but extremely well stocked kitchen and baths
Ana R.May 2019
We enjoyed this place very much! The townhouse is very spacious and located at a great location with awesome ocean views. You can enjoy the ocean and also the beautiful pool at the beach club. You can grill outside or at the beach club. We will definitely choose this place again.
Robin M.May 2019
We enjoyed ourselves

Very comfortable and great views
Francisco J Huezo/Mary H.Oct 2018
We have discovered the Far West (Galveston Island)! Loved the area, the natural beauty and the amenities. The home was very well stocked and, even though the weather was pretty bad, we had a wonderful time.
william c.Sep 2018
THE CONDO WAS CLEAN ..HOWEVER THE FURNITURE NEEDS TO BE CLEANED OR REPLACED, HAD A BAD ODOR..
THE POTS AND PANS MAY NEED TO BE REPLACED, AS THE TEFLON IS COMING OFF ON THE FOOD THAT IS BEING PREPARED..
MORE TRASH BAGS WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE ..
THERE IS A VERY LIMITED ACCESS TO TV CHANELS, ONLY THE VERY BASIC PACKAGE AVAILABLE..
THE WORST COMPLAINT IS THE FACT THAT WE WERE EATEN ALIVE BY MESQUITOES!!
WE HAD TO GO PURCHASE CITRONELLA CANDLES AND MOSQUITO TRAPS/CATCHERS!!
WHEN WE PULLED UP AND OPENED OUR DOOR , WE WERE LITERALLY SWARMED BY THEM!
PLEASE PROVIDE SPRAY AND CANDLES FOR YOUR GUESTS!!
THE MESQUITO PROBLEM IS NOT THE "PROPERTY OWNERS" FAULT , BUT, I BELIEVE THEY SHOULD PROVIDE CANDLES FOR THE PROPERTY !!!!
WE WILL NOT BE GOING BACK TO GALVESTON....EVER !
We are sorry to see mosquitoes were such a nuisance for our guest. Usually there is wind in the area that keeps them at bay, but they do hover around when there is no wind. We would have happily brought candles and spray for our guests had they notified us of the need.
Charles F.Sep 2018
Location to the beach, quiet, great breeze and views
Deborah D.Jul 2018
We loved our stay! If you are good with a very clean, nicely decorated, comfortable, well stocked condo with a huge balcony with lots of outdoor furniture, and the most beautiful views of the beach, then this is the place for you. By the way, I was a little concerned by some previous reviews, but we did not encounter any of those issues, the doors locked, the air conditioner worked great (but a little warmer in the bunks bedroom), no pet odors, nothing negative! We will definitely stay here again!
Tina F.May 2018
Very clean. Great access to the beach. Large balcony.
Sandy M.Mar 2018
The condo had nice views of the beach. The access to the walkway to the beach was also very close. Plenty of rooms. The bed in the master was very comfy. The condo is located at the very west end of the beach which made it quiet and private which was nice. But if you are wanting to be close to things going on in Galveston then this location might be too far.
My only issue was that there were only a few TV channels to watch. I know you don’t come to the beach to watch TV, but at night when winding down it would have been nice to have other viewing options.
Hector G.Aug 2017
The location of this property cannot be beat. Great views of the beach. It is WAAAY down on the West end, which we did not mind. But for those not familiar with the island, it is not close any of the Galveston attractions like the Strand, Pleasure Pier, or the seawall. As I said, we didn't mind this because we like being away from the craziness in town. But other tourists might want to be closer. Also, be aware the the lazy river is not on the same side as the beach club and the rest of the amenities. It is across the main road with the condos on the bay side. Again, not a problem, just something others might want to know. We had a wonderful time vacationing at Pointe West, and will definitely return. After renting beach houses for years, we really enjoyed a condo complex with amenities.
Heather K.Aug 2017
It was a great location for the beach, wonderful views. The condo was very clean and updated.
Jennifer B.Jul 2017
The unit was very clean and the A/C worked fantastic. Great view of the ocean and very quiet.
Carol F.Jul 2017
This was a very nice house that has been well maintained with a great view of the beach. We would definitely stay here again.
Gigi W.Jul 2017
This condo was comfortable - great views direct access to the beach and lovely sunsets!
Cheryl H.Jul 2017
Enjoyed our recent stay. Great view and location to the beach. The resort does a good job of raking the beach for seaweed, but the Gulf water was brown the entire week because of the winds. There is a nice restaraunt and bar by the pool for the the guests. Major issue was the master shower head had hardly any water pressure.
Candace H.Jun 2017
The view is great and the big balcony makes it nice to enjoy. Easy beach access. The pool club is great too! The problems were....
- the master bed is VERY loud and not comfortable. Everytime I rolled over I woke my husband up. Don't think you're going to get busy in this bed and not have everyone else in the house know about it!
- the living room couches and chairs are very ratty
-theres a badly broken chair on the balcony that needs to be removed.
-there is no interior lock on the entry door. The first morning we were there the cleaning lady came barging in to clean the floors (because she didn't have her mop when she was there last). She said the company gave her permission to come but no one notified us. Had we been a childless couple on our honeymoon or someone showering alone in the house, that could have been an embarrassing situation. She literally just walked in without knocking!
We apologize for the annoyances this guest experienced during their stay. The master bed frame is tight, and while the couches are not new, they are in fine condition. The balcony chair had the cushions temporarily removed due to a threatening tropical storm. We sincerely apologize if a housekeeper interrupted this guest's stay; we will investigate the matter. Thanks!
David S.Jun 2017
The house was great. Great location. The walkover to the beach is at the bottom of your stairs, and it is only a 5 minute walk with kids to the pool. The house was clean and everything worked well. We will be back next time we come to Galveston.
Kay S.Jun 2017
We had a lovely time! It was a beautiful place with everything we needed. Beautiful views! There were air matresses in closet of room with twin beds...better to use instead of pull out sofas.
Kelly I.May 2017
Barefoot Bungalow was the perfect place for a long weekend getaway. I can't say enough good things about it. The location on the property is just steps away from the beach, both of the pools on the property were well maintained and very inviting. The unit itself was super clean and very well maintained. Fashionably furnished and the beds were very comfortable. I highly recommend this unit especially if you are vacationing with kids/teenagers. Plenty of room and all the comforts of home. Looking forward to staying again in the near future!
Karen H.Apr 2017
Mark V.Apr 2017
Great place to relax and enjoy beautiful beach away from crowds.
Susan W.Apr 2017
We enjoyed our visit to the condo very much. I would definitely recommend it to a friend.
Laura S.Mar 2017
Love the location...quiet and away from the busyness, but still enough around to have dinner at a nice restaurant. Also liked the amenities at the condo and the easy assess to the beach. Very nice!!
Rob D.Nov 2016
We have stayed here several times now, and have a great time every visit. We always make plans to visit attractions in Galveston, but end up swimming on the beach or listening to the waves from the porch instead. It's so relaxing!
Cesar C.Sep 2016
Great location but property needs upgrading with its furniture.
Michael H.Sep 2016
The location is excellent - ocean front. However, this condo has old furniture and inadequate supplies. Example - the dining room chairs are broken and you can't sit on them without putting a pillow on them.
Jeanne P.Sep 2016
Pointe west is superb. The view was top notch. Inside the unit was poor. Furnishings need replaced.
Tony H.Aug 2016
Great place off the beaten path. Needs some updating and better kitchen utensils. For the price, it can't be beat for a family getaway.
Missy B.Jul 2016
Clean, nice private location. The beach is a good walk across a long boardwalk, a little difficult for the elderly in our group. The contents of the house did need some attention- broke down dining chairs, old uncomfortable pillows on balcony. Also the kitchen is not well stocked for much cooking and there is not a full set of dishes for 8. The beds were comfy:) The beach club with the poll is close by. We did enjoy are time, but it definitely felt like a rental .
The Property Manager has restocked the dishes and silverware, and all dining rooms chairs have been inspected for safety.
Kristi C.Jun 2016
This is such a great location! Improvements in maintenance, furniture, and cleanliness and this place could be just right! Rates too high for what you get. Will go back to property but will look for another unit.
Scott T.Jun 2016
Access to the beach is great and the pool, the lazy river, and the restaurant are also good. The condo we rented had numerous problems and was not being properly maintained. Looks good when you first walk in, but the issues become apparent. Watch out for rattlesnakes! The area between the beach and and the condos is an active rattlesnake habitat and that is no joke. Ran across two on the property, so stay on the sidewalks and watch your kiddos! Saw one little boy chase after one with his parents trying to catch him.
June B.May 2016
Barefoot Bungalow offered elevator which was important for my 91 year old mother to be able to easily access the condo. Beach access was great. It was very quiet and peaceful for our stay and we hated to leave.
R S.May 2016
I like the property - Point West however,
I would stay in a different unit than Barefoot Bungalow.
I have stayed at the property in the past in a different unit and it was great.
Rob D.Apr 2016
Great view and fantastic location!
Brittany C.Mar 2016
Great view! Close to beach! Dated interior with limited cooking supplies.
Overall good stay.
Nancy S.Mar 2016
Our dog enjoyed the view from the balcony, the walks on the beach and around the property.
Wilena N.Feb 2016
keep up the good job.
Jacqueline C.Feb 2016
Great location. Very nice furnishings and beautiful patio. Will definitely be back.
Amanda B.Sep 2015
We stayed here for a weekend and loved it. Beautiful, unobstructed view of beach and ocean from the balcony and the beach itself was clean and desolate. The condo was clean and everything was in working order. I will definitely go back.
Kendall W.Aug 2015
its a great property/ condo, nicely done and had everything we needed. You probly need to bring extra towelw but the washer and dryer work well. the condo is on a second floor with great views and next to a cross over to beach,we rented a golf cart to get around the property ,beach and lazy river pool which is at another complex which is too far to walk. we will definatly be back to the Barefoot Bungalow
Amy H.Jul 2015
The property was still being cleaned at 4:00 when we were suppose to be able to check in. The person cleaning the the property was very apologetic however may have felt rushed to finished. The floors were still dirty, in the kitchen towels, dishwashing soap, dishwasher tabs & trash bags were missing. I had to call 3 times in order for the items to be replaced. One of the twin beds was missing the top sheet. However besides the above small frustrations, the location to the beach, pool and property were great.
Georgia L.Jun 2015
House was clean and we loved the condos in general. Location was great. But this unit is not at all well stocked. No serving platters and bowls, no batteries in remote controls, no extra trash bags for kitchen, no extra detergent for dishwasher or washing machine, no beach toys or chairs, etc... So if you stay here, bring your own everything. It is clean and pretty and the pool is great, view is fabulous. But you'll need to bring everything except the kitchen sink;-)
Marilyn B.Jun 2015
We are native Texans and have been to Galveston many many times. I can honestly say that we were all surprised how beautiful this part of Galveston is. The beaches were very clean and No Seaweed. That was a wonderful surprise. It's just a short walk to the beach from the Condo. You are a ways from the city but that is a plus. Very quiet. You don't mind driving those few miles back for the activities. The condo itself was nice and offered a beautiful view from the balcony. With a little maintenance I would have rated it with 5 stars. With this being said we would go back tomorrow and stay in the same condo. Great time in Galveston.
Angela P.Mar 2015
The condo was beautiful, clean and large. The beach and facilities were very nice. Great condo 20 minutes from restaurants and stores.
Arthur H.Feb 2015
The place was really great, just what we were looking for. It is right on the beach, no one blocking our view and no road to cross, just walk out the back and across the wooden walkway and there you are. The interior of the condo was very comfortable and fully equipped. I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone looking for a peaceful beach vacation.
Thank you for the kind words. We are glad you enjoyed the unit and look forward to serving you again in the future.
Pam B.Feb 2015
We were very happy with the condo location. However, there were no tea towels or dish rags to hand wash dishes. Also, the instructions asked us to run the dishwasher but there was no soap.
