Spacious and clean with plenty of room for the six of us. Recently updated, and exactly as presented in photos online. Having washer & dryer was extremely helpful at the beach. The resort had everything we needed, and the kids enjoyed the beach & the lazy river. Onsite restaurant was very good. We only left the property once to go into Galveston for dinner at Jimmie's on the Pier. We have rented with VaCasa before and always been very happy with the property and management.
Do not stay at these condos. The place was not clean, the toilet started leaking the first morning we were there. The cable stopped working in the master room. The door knob to the balcony was so loose we were worried it was just going to fall off. There is no lock on the inside of the front door, kids could easily just open it and walk out. Anyone with the code could just come in. I definitely expected more for the amount of money we paid and will never stay here again.
We are disappointed to read this review and hope we can alleviate any guest concerns with our response. The toilet bowl was readjusted to there is no longer a leak, the door handle to the unit is fixed, and the door code is changed constantly. Thank you!
Great location with a great view. Condo was perfect fit for our family of 6. Love how easy it was to go to beach, or across the street to the bay, and love the beach club swimming pool.
Perfect beach, wonderful atmosphere, friendly staff, and the condo was just the right size for a family of four. Loved the two different pool locations. Also, loved how quiet it was and yet a short drive to all sorts of activities.
Loved relaxing on the deck with the amazing view.
The place is clean, a little far away from the pool and didn’t have wirefi connection.
Nice location with easy beach and pool logistics.
Very quiet and relaxing time. Enjoyed walk on the beach especially at sunrise and sunset. Pools and spas were great. Accommodations were clean and very nice. Loved the elevator.
Pointe West is a great place to get away from it all!
this was a great surprise, the beach is awesome clean and huge, the home was clean ,perfect location
Had to leave a day early, due to Harvey. Gassed up and hit the road back to
Great condo, very clean, and beautiful view! The beach club was terrific and only a short walk or drive away. Easy access to the beach and not too far from a small market. We had a lovely stay with our family and the teenagers loved the beach club.
It's a nice condo furnished with everything you would possibly need. The people above us were not very respectful with their noise.
Our 4 day stay was perfect in July!!
The pool was awesome, beautiful setting. Landscaping/grounds were well maintained.
Beach was very clean.
Wish we had rented a golf cart
The condo was kept in extremely clean condition which was great. The beach was not crowded at all even though it was July and summer time. It was a great place to stay!
great view, great location, nice amenities. Very happy with our stay.
Great place to get away and relax. Our favorite resort to stay at in Galveston. Off seasons are to best!
great location,nice amenities with condo complex
Overall, it is a great unit in a great location. Loved having easy access to the beach. The unit could use a little updating, but it was perfectly fine for a long weekend get-away.
Very nice place. Beach and club very accessible.
Overall they stay was nice. Farther out than I expected and the condo was very warm couldn't get the rooms cool enough to sleep comfortably. Management did their best to help by bringinformation box fans in to help out.
The property is colorful and very well groomed. It is just off the main road and very easy to find. We attended a wedding nearby and this place was perfect for our group of 4. We went to the Galveston Strand shopping and made 3 turns and were shopping. The island was wonderful, clean and NO Seaweed. Great time to go. Look forward to booking again.
Two things that don't belong in a beach house - old nasty carpet and trickling cold showers. Nice comfy beds, but no duvet covers. Other than that we enjoyed what we usually do about pointe west - beautiful views, easy access to best beaches and not having to pack the kitchen sink (although this one was more bare bones).
Such Avery quiet and relaxing time to be had at Point West!
Great condo's, and easy access to the beach, we came to be on the beach so we didn't care about using the private pool/jacuzzi. But we would have loved to eat at the restaurant except they wanted $10 per person to just get into it.
We are from pearland and wanted a quick getaway with our kids. We usually go to surfside beach but wanted to try pointe west because of the great reviews. It was a great time! I was a little disappointed with the beach, lots of trash had washed up and there is no soft sand for the kids to play in like at surfside, but the waves were calm, great for my 2 and 4 year old to play in. The beach is an easy walk from the condo. We had a blast going back and forth!
We spent two nights at this condo and had a very enjoyable experience. Though the condo is 20 minutes from most restaurants and attractions in Galveston we found the area and the beach in particular quite and relaxing. There is no traffic allowed on this section of the beach so are children were able to play freely. The accommodations were modern, clean and provided a gorgeous view of the sunrise. It is only a short walk to the beach and the property does include a restaurant and beach club with a pool.
Granted, there isn't much night life here off season, far from Galveston. But the beach at Pointe West itself is very clean and inviting, and the Beach Club has all the amenities you need for a lovely beach holiday: good food, drink, beautiful infinity pool, hot tub, fitness center, gift shop. The skeleton crew off season is minimal, but oh so accommodating. And you don't fight crowds for anything. You trade live bands for piped-in music, but the atmosphere is oh so peaceful.
We found this to be a very lovely unit. Beautiful location and serene setting. We enjoyed this unit, as it was large enough to facilitate our needs and offered all the comfort of a home away from home. For our family, it was not just about cramming everything we could into a day, but stopping to take the time to enjoy one another in this fast-paced world. The beautiful beachfront, daytime view and sounds of the ocean's roar at night made for great relaxation while taking the time to be conscious of the massive creations of this universe. If you are searching for a setting of this sort, take some time to sit atop the spacious balcony where you will find considerable enjoyment and time well-spent. Our only disappointment with the unit was our feeling that it needed some routine upkeep and small repairs. The gorgeous, updated kitchen and bath countertops were a nice touch. We would consider staying at this location again, and possibly the same unit. Overall, we were very satisfied!
Thank you for sharing your thoughtful review. We couldn't agree more that in this fast paced world one of the most valuable things is time with your family, uninterrupted. This condo is wonderfully located and perfect for a relaxing get away. We're so pleased to see that you appreciated the fantastic kitchen. Please come visit again! Thanks for choosing Vacasa!
Staff was very helpful and kind. Location was remote and quiet but was relaxing and accessible to the beach and other necessary amenities. Very nice facility overall!!
Pointe west resort is a great place to escape and relax. Plenty of space available and excellent amenities made this a trip to remember. The buildings on the beach side are staggered so everyone has a great view. Property was well maintained and constantly being attended to. Staff was very polite and very helpful during our stay. The beach was the cleaniest beach I have ever seen on a Texas shore from Padre to Port Authur. Overall great experience and will definitely return!
Thank you so much for sharing this thoughtful review with us. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Pointe West Resort and that you were well taken care of. Sounds like you had a fantastic trip and we certainly look forward to when you're able to stay with us again to create some more memories!
