Waterfront rental w/ shared hot tub and pool - stroll to the sand & Beach Club!
Grab your swim suits, your fishing poles, and your favorite loafing pajamas - this Galveston vacation rental's wonderful views and simple, calm atmosphere will create a lovely backdrop for you next beach vacation!
Located in the Ocean Club Villas of the beautiful Pointe West Resort, guests of this ocean retreat are within easy walking distance of resort amenities and the beach. Galveston proper is just 19 miles away by car for shopping and dining opportunities.
This condo is located on the third floor of its building, making the views of the property and the beach extra spectacular. Guests will want to spend as much time outside as possible here - enjoy a meal, a board game or a good book, and then out on the porch in the refreshing a sea breeze.
The condo's interior is naturally bright and simple, making it a peaceful place to come back to after a busy day of fun. The open floor plan means that guests can spread out comfortably throughout the living space. The whole group can lounge on the olive green sofa - one end even has an extra-long section to stretch your legs - or curl up in two reading chairs. Enjoy your favorite sports on cable, or settle the kiddos down with an old Disney favorite on VHS or DVD while the adults enjoy drinks on the porch or in the kitchen. Older children will get hours of fun out of the foosball table in the den on the other side of the kitchen. The den can also be changed up into a small office space with a nice desk and good natural light - a perfect place to plug in your computer and check emails with the in-home WiFi. Or take a cup of coffee or tea out to the balcony for more great views and fresh air!
The open kitchen makes for easy traffic flow, and guests can sit at the two breakfast bars (two stools each) to drink coffee or prep vegetables on the dark granite counters. Stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher, make cooking dinner an easy affair, and family-style eating will be thoroughly enjoyed at the six-top dining table inside, or the patio furniture outside.
Three bedrooms await your sleepy bodies in this condo, all with soft white bedding, private TVs, and private bathrooms. The master suite, with its soft king bed frame and private deck access, makes for a lovely getaway for a couple. Enjoy lavish bubble baths in the en suite soaking tub, and long showers in the separate shower stall.
The guest bedroom has dark furnishings, a queen bed, and its own TV - a great room for a second couple or a young adult. The kids' room has two sets of twin bunk beds with a third TV - this one with a DVD/VCR player, a small table for coloring and puzzles, and plenty of storage space. In total, this home can sleep up to eight guests in utter comfort.
Adventure awaits you outside your lovely beach retreat! Pointe West offers some truly fabulous amenities like 14 miles of paved paths throughout the property for jogging and biking, an Infinity Pool and a Lazy River (among several other types of pools), and access to the beach for fishing, surfing, or picnicking. Eat at the privately own Breezes Restaurant, or enjoy adult time at Topsiders Bar while the kids play in the kiddie pool.
This Texas vacation rental at Pointe West Resort makes for a lovely personal paradise - enjoy!

Direct ocean view. Condo layout is great for family. Open living, dining, kitchen, den/play area. Love that each bedroom has its own full bath. Kitchen is fully stocked with all you need. Would definitely go back again!
The location of this condo was great. Off the beaten path away from the tourist attractions which we loved. Nice and quiet. The house was clean and plenty big for our family. We loved the use of the foosball table in the condo and the deck overlooking the water was a great place for me to work in the mornings!
Beautiful view. Condo was clean and comfortable. Easy access to the beach, but no carts allowed on the beach itself. Beach was clean and gorgeous. We would rent again.
Very clean short walk to the beach. Kids loved the pools and game room. Adults enjoyed drinking morning coffee looking at the water. I noticed all the reviews about the elevators. We had no issues during our stay. The only issue we had was the kids room. The ladder on the kids bed is unsafe. It fell when the 3 year old was climbing down. I was there to catch her so she wasn’t hurt. We just moved it to the closet. And the TV in that room didn’t work. Other than that it was a great place to stay. We will stay again!
The ladder and TV have been taken care of. We apologize for any issues they caused our guests.
nice property. well appointed. plenty of space. nice balcony. elevator is a bit unpredictable but worked the majority of the time we were there. location is right near the water.
We enjoyed our time in this home. It's close to the beach and club house. We did have some issue with internet not working. After few phone calls, it started to work the next day. We had to move some furniture and tv around to get the access to the trundle bed. With the dresser in the way, we didn't have enough room to pull the bed out. Lucikly the elevator was working during our visit. They need to leave more than one beach towel. Luckily we brought our own. Otherwise it's a good house.
Loved the layout and cleanliness. Perfect for us and two grandchildren. Battery went out in fire alarm and somebody was there within 5 minutes to fix it. Will definitely return. Awesome views of the ocean
Love this condo, one of the best locations at pointe west, 3rd floor, clean. We will be back again.
Wonderful location and tremendous view. Unit is nicely appointed, homey and functional. The only issue is with the elevator which has sporadic service so be prepared to climb 4 stories of stairs.

Lovely veiw and great environment! The only down fall was the elevator didnt work
This was the perfect condo for us! We had 4 adults and 4 children. The view was spectacular. The condo was clean, updated and very nice! We loved it and would definitely stay again!
The condo smelled of cigarette smoke so bad, we had to open the doors to get the smell out.
The elevator was so scary, it would jerk and make noises like it was falling.
Several times other guests were stranded on the elevator for a few minutes.
The dishwasher would not drain after each wash - had to drain again.
There was broken glass on the main porch which someone stepped on while there and cut their foot.
The master bedroom door would not open at all.
The master bedroom window was difficult to get open and no screen.
The designated parking spaces are not honored by the guest.
The location and space is perfect for a quiet retreat vacation. We absolutely loved it
We loved staying at this property! It has everything you need to feel right at home and the view from the balcony is beautiful. We ate breakfast out on the large balcony and the beach club is just a short walk away which is really convenient. The beach is cleared twice a day so there's no sea weed and it's not crowded. It's the perfect place to be if you like to relax on the beach! We loved it!
We stayed 3 nights here with 3 of our teenage sons.. we all had a blast... it was clean, laid back, and quiet... cannot wait to come back!
View was amazing and such a short distance to pool. This condo was beautifully decorated and open floor plan.
The condo was amazing and well kept. Great access to the beach. Would stay here every time I visit!
My family and I absolutely loved this place. I was so relieved to see a high chair and a portable crib here. What a life saver!!! Traveling with those things isn't fun so to have it provided was great. Everything was absolutely wonderful! Loved every second of it! Wish I would have gotten the email to stay longer at the discounted rate prior to check out time!
This place makes me want to come back every weekend!
The condominium was perfect. Six total people stayed in the house. 4 adults, 2 kids (8 and 5). Never felt like we were on top of each other. Great foosball table that isn't even advertised in the pictures. Comfortable furniture as well. Will definitely try to stay at this property again.
Went with family and had a great time. Will book again. Unit could use a little TLC though, but overall happy with the resort and location.
Overall we loved the facility. It was quite and comfortable. The view was awesome and everyone we dealt with was polite and courteous. It has great amenities and a nice living quarters. We only had 4 in our group, but would have easily accommodated 8. We will be back.
Lovely condo. Bigger than looks in photos. Quiet. Gorgeous views....right on the beach. Close, but not too close to resort pool. Pool was too cold to swim, but fun, and has a great poolside cafe. Very pleased with VaCasa management, professional and reliable.
Beach was beautiful and the location quite.
If you are looking for a spot where you can enjoy gorgeous sunrises, sunsets from the decks and miles of quiet beach just a quick walk over the dunes, this is it. Restaurants and all the touristy attractions about 20-25 minutes away. On the islands west end, this condo is everything it says it is, we will definitely be going back!
Such a nice, comfortable, clean place with in a fabulous Galveston location!!
Everything was great... the decor, beach and surroundings. It's a bit far from town (40 mins) but that only makes it better.
Great weekend with the family!
Loved it! We will be going back.
Great property! Very clean and well decorated. Will definitely rent here again.
We enjoyed our stay. We have 4 adults, 2 older teenagers and a 9 year old. The location was farther from Galveston than I would have preferred, but it didn't affect our visit too much. The pool and lazy river are geared toward young children so I would not suggest the facility if you do not have kids.
The staff at the pool side restaurant were very attentive and nice.
I want to give a Big thank you to the Regional Manager for making our week stay amazing. He took care of any questions or concerns we had. I have recommended Vacasa to friends and family, they have already booked another week. I will be back next summer!
The personalized service with Armond was wonderful. We were in Galveston for four months for medical reasons and all our arrangements were handled promptly and professionally. Thanks Vacasa.
We went there for a weekend, we really enjoyed the property and also the access of the beach club at Pointe West. It is a great place for kids and a relaxing spot for adults.
With the exception of the carpet, the apartment is great.
I had family come in from out of town, it was 8 of us so we utilized the whole house. When we arrived the first thing we noticed was how filthy the carpet was. They cable in the third room didn't work and barely worked in the second room. I was so embarrassed because I was the host. Other then that the view was beautiful, the location was good, and no I won't rent this property again.
Thank you for sharing your review. We are so sorry that the carpet was not clean during your stay. We have shared your comments with our property manager and they will make sure the carpet gets cleaned and also check on the cable. We are glad that you enjoyed the view and the location and thank you again for choosing Vacasa.
My first trip to Galveston was a success! I loved the accomodations and amenities.
My family and I was very happy with our choice of locating our family thanksgiving vacation to Galveston this year and our stay at the Ocean Retreat with Vacasa property made it wonderful.
This condo is located in between the main pool and the boardwalk to the beach. Consider renting a golf cart. It would make getting around easier when it's really hot. Great staff at the office, gift shop, restaurant, bar. Great views from all sides of the condo.
This condo was prefect for a family of 5 adults and one toddler. The place was kid friendly which was a huge concern for me. There is also a high chair and pack n play with the unit. Pointe West is an amazing family vacation spot. The main pool is so beautiful over looking the ocean and the lazy river pool is fun for the kids with more shade. The only changes I would request would be the carpet to be cleaned and or replaced and the balcony door nobs be replaced. The condo is about a 30-45 minute drive to downtown Galveston. If you are looking to go out downtown a lot I would be aware of this drive. We were happy with just playing on the beach and at the pools so this was not an issues for us. Great place overall!!
