Ocean Retreat 26411 Cat Tail Drive #301, Galveston, TX 77554

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!

**Note: During peak season between March 1st and September 8th, Beach Club bands will be $10 per guest over 3-years-old to access all amenities. This fee is charged by the POA of Pointe West and is payable at the Beach Club.**

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!!
