Bayfront condo w/ scenic views, shared hot tub, pool, near beach - dogs ok!
With spectacular views of the ocean, access to fantastic community amenities like pools and hot tubs, and all the comforts of home, this dog-friendly Galveston vacation rental is just the place to plan your next trip!
Nestled toward the west end of Galveston Island, about 20 miles from the city center, this luxury condo at Pointe West Resort is near enough to take advantage of all the city facilities, but far enough away that you don't have to share the beach or the amazing view with too many other people. The beach is just a short stroll away (via a nice dune walkover), so when you're not relaxing on your balcony or swimming in the pool you can enjoy playing on the beach!
This three-bedroom, two-bathroom home is spacious enough to accommodate up to eight guests. You will love the serene color scheme, bright and sunny interior, and restive atmosphere. Have a seat in the living room and watch some TV, use the provided WiFi to look up activities, or simply gaze out the windows to see the majestic ocean.
With a gorgeous full kitchen, the cook in your group will love preparing meals during your stay. The granite countertops, gleaming stainless-steel appliances, and ample counterspace mean that cooking here will be a breeze. Sit down at the dining room table and nearby breakfast bar to enjoy a home-cooked breakfast together before heading out for a morning walk on the beach.
Throughout the condo are beautiful hardwood floors that you will love. Step down the hallway to find the three bedrooms. One features two twin-size beds, and the second room has a lovely queen bed. The master is furnished with a huge king-size bed, and it also has balcony access and a wonderful attached bathroom with double sinks and a walk-in shower. A comfortable sofabed in the living room provides even more sleeping places, so up to eight guests will have a nice, cozy space to rest.
You can even bring up to two dogs to this condo, though a nightly fee per dog and minimum fee per stay will apply.
If you walk outside you will find yourself on your private balcony. From here you can see the pool area, so it will be easy to tell if the pool is crowded! You can also have a seat on the patio furniture and admire the spectacular view of the ocean. This is the perfect place to relax and watch the sky turn colors as the sun sets over the horizon.
In the condo complex you will find plenty of amenities to keep you busy. Swim around the infinity-edge pool, float around the lazy river pool, play some beach volleyball, check out the fitness center, use the gas grills in the picnic area, or take a stroll along the 14 miles of walking and biking trails. With the beach so close, you will surely want to spend some time walking on the soft sand, building sand castles, beachcombing, and splashing around the shallows.
If you feel like heading into the city, a scenic drive along the coast will take you to Galveston proper. Here you will find even more miles of coastline as well as a seawall that offers gorgeous views. In town you will find all types of restaurants, as well as shopping, museums, galleries, fishing opportunities, and plenty of other activities to keep everyone entertained.
Come stay at this luxury Texas vacation rental and treat yourself and your family to an oceanfront, amenity-filled, relaxing vacation!

Overall a good place. Will likely go back. Hot tub close by and lovely. Great views. Very quiet during the off season.
Downsides: I can't make the turn to get my extended cab ford f150 in the parking spot under the condo. So if you have a big vehicle you will have to park outside. TVs are old and don't have connection for chrome cast. A few minor maintenance issues like burn out light bulbs but vacsa staff notified repair man. However he did not come before we left.
We appreciate this review and are sorry to see our guest had some disappointments with their stay. The TVs do not have WiFi, but they do function perfectly. The light bulbs have been replaced. Thank you!
I really enjoyed my time with my family at this house. Everything was great and better than expected. The pools are great, the ocean was within walking distance and the views were better than I have ever seen. Also after booking it after reading several reviews I wanted to mention that we had no problems with the old school televisions. They worked great and had very clear pictures, no problems at all. The place is really really clean also, this made me feel right at home. The beds are perfect with a variety of different pillows so you can choose what you like.
The view, balcony, muliple pools, location and community of people. It was spacious and service was very helpful when needed.
This condo is actually very nice but there were a couple things that could have been better. For one, the tv’s were all old, big back tv’s and we had to move the tv in the master bedroom to the living room because the one in the living room had a staticky, fuzzy picture. One of the tv’s in one of the bedrooms was so small you can barely see the picture. The shower in the master bathroom was so slow to drain that we were standing in water when we took showers. There were a couple lightbulbs out which was minor because they were in the closet and on the deck but I still would have liked to have used them at certain times. For the money spent, I would have liked everything to be top notch but other than these issues the condo was very nicely laid out.
We are sorry to see this guest was disappointed in the TVs, but they will remain as they are at this time. The drain and light bulbs have been taken care of. Thank you!
We loved the facility, had everything we needed and more, and the pools were awesome! Recommend you get the wristbands for access to the pools before you do anything else.
The home was nice and everyone enjoyed the condo. The lazy river pool is right below it and it is only a short drive to the main pool. The condo was nice and clean when we arrived and the towels and linens inside were all clean, and good! I even commented to our friends how good they smelled! haha!However, there were some issues. The elevator for the building the condo was in as of 6/28/18 does not work, it is out of order. The condo is on the 3rd floor, so you will get a workout! The unit has older tube type tv's in every room other than the master bedroom. I can't believe that in 2018 as cheap as flat panel televisions are that these haven't been upgraded! If there were flat screens in every room this condo would be almost perfect! Our last issue was that some of the door knobs in the condo were loose to the point of about to fall off. We tightened them the best that we could during our stay. But, the good outweighs the bad for this condo and we would stay again!
We apologize the elevator was out; it takes a few weeks for parts to arrive in order to do the repairs. We do suggest that those with mobility issues do not rent this unit in case the elevator is having difficulties. We do recognize the TVs are older, but the owner is not interested in replacing them since they all work perfectly. Thanks!
This property is located in an ideal location with beautiful views. The condo is well furnished and clean. Already planning our next vacation @ Beach Retreat.
We LOVED this condo! It was on the bayside right by the lazy river pool! My kids love this pool! We drove over to the beach and had a great morning and came back to enjoy the pools all afternoon and evening! This 3 bedroom condo had everything we needed! We will definitely stay here again.
Our stay was so nice. I will return.
This trip was so pleasant and easy because we could walk to the lazy river from our condo in under 2 minutes. Our youngest grandchildren could place safely while we soaked in chairs in the water or just sat in the shallow end.with our unbreakable cups full of wine or gin tonics!
It was so easy to go back and forth from the pool and not a hassle to have to pack up and walk a long way or even drive.
The apartment was great & the flow from kitchen to living room was so open and comfortable for all to gather. We also had a great balcony with an incredible view. The breeze was wonderful and almost no mosquitoes.
Condo decor was nice and all felt very clean and loved how many extras were supplied for our comfort! Even a gift bag upon arrival!
This was out 3rd year and we plan on having a 4th and will try to get Beach Retreat #203 again as the owners take such good care of their place as well as their guests.
My husband, daughter, son-in-law and two small grandchildren loved our stay for 4 nights! We enjoyed the lazy pool area the most! Everything was very well kept! I would recommend anyone to stay as long as they can!
This place was awesome! Great for the kiddos, a bit far from all of the main attractions but having seclusion was nice for going to the beach not many people at all!
and still OK but needs better upkeep.
Great room and resort. Our family stayed on the bay side and loved it there. It was quiet and we especially loved the view and the lazy river pool. The amenities were great the only downside is you have to pay $10 a person to use them. I suggest not taking the boardwalk over to the beach. We used one of the resorts boardwalks (not the main one) we got eaten by hundreds of huge mosquitos and had to walk through a grassy trail. We eventually figured out it is easiest to go down to beach access 36 and drive right on the beach. Other than that, we loved our stay there and would definitely come back.
The condo was nice and clean inside. I have suggested they clean the deck and arrange deck furniture. There was salt and pepper and just a few left over spices. They need to add a few more wine glasses and maybe some plastic type dishes~ glasses, plates, bowls! The beds were very comfortable, but the pillows not so much! The location was great~ right by the lazy river pool! and the view was beautiful! I really liked the wood floors thru out ~ The pictures truly show what the Condo looks like. Vacasa did have 4 beach towels waiting for us to use. That was nice! Though it says to bring your own towels. They even had 3 Laundry pods so that we may do a few loads of laundry. All in all it was a nice place to stay!
We had a wonderful time other than the few things I mention, we will be back again!
This was our first time to use Vacasa. We have been using other vacation home rental sites for years, and are frequent travelers. I was hesitant to use a new service but it turned out very well!
The rental agreement was simple and to the point. All points of contact with Vacasa were extremely helpful.
The condo itself was in the perfect location for what we wanted; away from the crowds but still close to amenities. We could see both the ocean and the bay from our balconies. The sunset pool was right outside our doors. It was beautiful. they clean it every day and play relaxing music and just the right volume.(think jimmy buffet)
The condo was clean and toiletries were provided as well as linens.
There is a washer/dryer that came in handy for our pool towels.
The king bed was very comfy and we have back problems, so that was a major plus for us! We really enjoyed our stay and Pointe West is wonderful!
The furnishings and roominess reminded us of a Hilton penthouse where we once stayed in Florida. But, we didn't like the long hike to the beach, so we mostly drove. We should have brought more groceries, because it was twenty miles to the nearest supermarket. We didn't get to use the pool area, but that "lazy river" concept looked interesting.
My husband and I shared this unit with my in-laws for the weekend and loved the remote location as well as all the amenities including the bay and oceanfront pools as well as the property restaurant and rooftop bar. The unit was gorgeous. It was spacious and clean and very well-furnished. The views from the unit were unbeatable! We can't wait for our next getaway here!!
I stayed here for a weekend vacation with my husband, son, and my sister's whole family. The property is beautiful and th sunsets you have a view of are wonderful! We loved the pool and short drive to the beach. Will definitely stay here again!!
Our family had a great time overall! Loved the location and view from the balcony. Loved the lazy river pool and condo was nice and large enough to accommodate the whole family. We would love to come back again sometime!
This was a well decorated condo with beautiful views of the lazy river pool and the bay.
Fabulous location with lots of amenities...makes for a great memory-filled family weekend!
This was a great location on the west end overlooking the pool and West bay. Sunsets were outstanding. We would stay here again.
Light bulbs need rplacing. Ned more coffe cups and frying pan.
Thank you for these suggestions!
Great area, would go back to Pointe West, but stay in a different place. With smaller kids, I think we would stay closer to beach access. The pool area and sunset on Bay side were really nice!
Thank u for the fastest way for us to spend the New Years! We have a blast and we would love to do it again.
Overall it was awesome. The condo was perfect for a family of 7. We had plenty of space and everything was so neat and clean. I loved the views of both the bay and the beach.

Awesome locAtion, close to pool and a two minute drive to beach. Personal parking spot and had everything you need for the beach! We will be back next summer:)!!
Nothing but laughter and great memories were made at the Beach Retreat! It is a beautiful condo with easy access to the lazy river pool and just minutes away from the beach. The staff was very helpful every time I called. We will definitely use Vacasa in the near future.
We headed to Galveston for a quick weekend. We had 3 couples. This was great for our purpose. While we might have enjoyed having a queen bed in the 3rd bedroom, the twins were comfortable. We would definitely stay here again!
We went in late Dec, early Jan. The weather was dreadfully cold, but the condo made the trip a success. Very clean, good location away from the city, very quiet and peaceful.
