Bayfront condo w/ shared pool, hot tub & more - short walk to beach!

Settle into carefree blue skies and sand castle daydreams in your home-away-from-home at this Galveston vacation condo featuring two bedrooms, two baths and a private bayside patio.

The quaint nautical-themed condo is located on Point West Resort, offering both a secluded, intimate hideaway for you and your family of six or a pit stop between ocean-side picnics, fishing excursions and kayak trips out to sea. The condo is located on the west end of Galveston Island, just 20 minutes from the historic pier-front shopping in Galveston and the untouched shores of the Gulf of Mexico. Families on the go can bicycle the island, watch 3D movies at Moody Waters, and cook together with all the conveniences of home. Easily visit Schlitterbahn Water Park during the day and in the evening, there's the nightlife fun the Strand District has to offer for the adults.

Your guests will curl-up on the dark leather sleeper-sofa and love seat or map out the next day's adventures on the antique claw-foot coffee table in the living room. Aromatherapy candles, tropical wall décor and an overhead ceiling fan will set the tone for a relaxing coastal vacation. The condo's open concept design will allow you and your guests to reconnect when popping in a DVD on the 46-inch flat-screen television in the living room, or chat over a long dinner in the adjoining dining room. The dining room table offers four white upholstered chairs and views of the bay, making your cup of morning Joe unforgettable!

The full-service kitchen provides a stainless steel range top oven, microwave, dishwasher, and French door refrigerator, complete with an ice machine. The spacious granite counter tops and a pearly tile backslash will allow you to host mealtime with ease, whether you're preparing sandwiches for a boat trip or making seafood Alfredo for a sit-down dinner.

Double glass doors off the dining room lead way to the private patio, which offers picturesque views of grasslands, walking trails, and the Gulf of Mexico. A wood-slat bistro table and loungers will allow you to kick off your shoes and grab a bite, curl up with a book, or simply bask in the views of the coast.

The 1,055 square foot condo is located on the top floor and comfortably sleeps six guests. The master suite includes a queen-sized bed, ornate wooden bedroom furniture, an overhead ceiling fan, a 32-inch flat-screen TV and DVD player, and access to the patio. The master suite offers a private bathroom, with handsome silver fixtures, a double vanity, granite counter tops and a glass stand-up shower.

Other guests will enjoy two twin-size beds and a 32-inch flat-screen TV in the second bedroom; above each bed is lifesaver, nautical art, and charming decorative throw pillows that playfully depict an anchor and ship's wheel. There's a full bath in the hallway featuring granite counter tops, brushed nickel fixtures, and a rainfall nozzle showerhead.

Be sure to pack all your technological devices as this unit offers wireless Internet and a full washer and dryer, but leave your four-legged friends at home. A 40-minute trip to Galveston will offer dining hot spots, beach side dances, catamaran fishing vessels, aquatic and family fun centers, and more. Or keep your guests on site at the Point West Beach Club luxury resort that offers swimming pools, a fitness center, a bonfire pit, and plenty of chaise lounges to catch up on your book club materials or get a tan in time for family photos! There's also a game room, lazy river, hot tubs, the Pointe Restaurant and Bar, and you'll find that surrounding waters are perfect for fishing, crabbing, kayaking, and other water-sports.

This Texas vacation condotruly has it all: serene patio views of the bay, charming nautical touches, and enough family excursions to create a lifetime of memories and fill priceless pages in that family scrapbook.

Wonderful condo unit. Kitchen and dining area roomy enough to prepare and eat a traditional thanksgiving meal. Beautiful scenic views from the balcony.Great time with the kids at the Beach Club using the fitness center, game room and hot tub.
Lillian E. Aug 2018

Jason S. Aug 2018

Teresa C. Jul 2018
All of that our room was Immaculate was beautiful I'd love the pools I love the food in the bar beautiful clean entire vacation
Vincent F. Jul 2018
This unit was not the most luxurious of my rentals however it was clean comfortable and had everything you needed to enjoy and relax. Unit has great views of the bird wildlife that live right off the balcony also has a view of Galveston Bay. Check in and check out very convenient and quick. My first time using Vacasa and I will again. Parking is located under the unit elevator available. Washer and dryer was a great feature to have. Beds were comfortable. There was start up soap, paper goods laundry supplies etc. Very relaxing quiet building. Close to the pools and easy access to beach. I enjoyed being away from the crowds but yet close enough to experience when I wanted to. Overall a wonderful experience. Thank you!
Stephanie A B. Jul 2018
Pointe Paradise has a comfortable condo that was just what we needed. Away from the busyness of Galveston with a private beach and club. We had a beautiful view of the bay which was wonderful for balcony!
Lorraine O. Jul 2018
Great view! Well
Maintained.
Pull out bed a little uncomfortable, fine for little kids. We enjoyed it!
Wendy F. Jun 2018
The condo was nicely furnished and decorated. It has a beautiful view of the bay. We wish it had been a little closer to one of the pools or the beach.
Jack S. May 2018
Loved the view!
Shelley B. Apr 2018
Very nice condo about 30 min drive from Galveston. Stayed 2 nights and could have stayed a week comfortably. Beautiful views and all comforts of home. It was off-season so very quiet, beach was all ours which was perfect for a quick, relaxing couple of days on the gulf.
Sarina M. Apr 2018
Condo was very clean. View was great. We cooked our meals there and enjoyed the beach club. Elevator stopped working the second day. Overall great weekend! Can’t wait to go back.
Kim S. Mar 2018
smoke alarms kept going off everytime we opened the patio doors. master mattress was very uncomfortable due to it caving in the middle. we had no clue where to go to let the kids swim. but the condo was very clean and we made sure to leave it that way when we left. not worth the amount of money we paid for all the stress.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see this guest felt their stay was stressful. There is a brand new box spring in the master bedroom, but we will provide additional support for the mattress to prevent any caving. Some of the condos in the complex are set for the alarms to go off if windows and/or doors are left open while the air conditioning is running. We apologize if this was a surprise and nuisance to our guest. When these guests registered with the complex for wrist bands they should have been provided with a map of the complex and all activities/amenities provided by Pointe West. We will follow-up with a reminder for the staff. Thank you!

The condo was nice. The water was really bad. Smells horrible and made the condo smell horrible.
Manager response:
We sincerely apologize for the bad odor in the water. This home had not been used in a month, so the water had been sitting for some time. We have flushed the pipes which seems to have completely removed any odors. Thanks!
Rick R. Aug 2017
Bring bug spray the mosquitoes are awful
Pointe West has nice pools
30-40 minutes to Galveston
A golf cart rental would've been a nice luxury but unnecessary
Kevin N. Jul 2017
Perfect place to get away for a few days. The place is nice, clean, and quiet.
It is about 30 min away from Galveston. If you want to carry a lot of stuff to the beach, you need to drive across the street.
Adrian J. Jul 2017
After much searching we decided on Unit 302 based on the description and photos. It was nice enough; clean, well maintained, and tastefully decorated with beautiful floors. However, despite the photos showing loungers on the balcony and a description of " loungers will allow you to kick off your shoes and grab a bite, curl up with a book, or simply bask in the views of the coast", there were no loungers. I brought several books for the express purpose of enjoying the balcony while reading but there was no way to do so.

Despite a nice walk in closet there were no hangars provided which made the large closet useless. Also the mattress in the MBR was very uncomfortable and creaked and squeaked with the slightest motion. The pillows were razor thin and provided no support at all.

I was looking forward to staying here and paid a premium price compared to other units that were available. While a nice place there are better values.
Lisa K. Jun 2017
Enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. It was nice watching the sun go down on the patio. Having the bay side view was very pleasant and better than expected. I would bring bike next time to ride to the beach club.
Angela L. Jun 2017
Pointe Weet was perfect! Bay side condo was quiet, beautiful and clean! Took a chance and the reviews were better than expected! We will definitely be back! Mom traveling with teenage kids and could not have been more content and safe!
Ann W. May 2017
Unsure where the futon was. Inside was in great condition. Outside patio had a lot of insects and the floors outside looked like it had not been cleaned in a while. On our last day the alarms woke us up at 7 and kept going off until we left. The property manager was nice and stopped is as we were getting ready to leave and could not figure out why it kept going off. Hope this does not happen to anyone. But the rest of the stay was good.
Manager response:
Housekeeping has cleaned off the balcony, and the Property Manager has addressed the problem with the alarm. Thank you!
Courtney C. Apr 2017
The condo overlooking the bay and wetlands was a pleasant surprise. A jewel at the end of Galveston. I always stay somewhere with a Beach view and this was a last minute booking and we LOVED it. I would definitely stay again with a bay view.
The Beach Club was great and the pools were a hit with our whole party. This was my first time to stay this far down on the island and it was so worth it. I will DEFINITELY stay at Pointe West again. Next time I will bring bikes or rent a Golf Cart. What a fun development.
Heather K. Apr 2017
This was our first time utilizing VaCASA and VRBO and it was a great experience all around. The condo was a lovely place for our family of 4. The girls enjoyed their room with 2 twins and their own tv! The unit was a perfect size for the family. We enjoyed sitting on the 'back porch' and enjoying the views of the bay and all the birds and boats flying by. Unfortunately, we did have a need for a wheelchair during our stay due to a new broken ankle. The unit worked perfectly, floors all level, doors wide enough and plenty of room to get around. Everyone welcomed the elevator to get to the 3rd floor.
Robb B. Mar 2017
Beach club a little bit of a walk, but otherwise perfect!
Jonathan L. Sep 2016
Everything was as described - a clean place in a quiet location a short drive away from the beach and beach club. We enjoyed our stay.
Patricia H. Aug 2016
We loved this clean and family friendly condo. We were looking for a space far enough from downtown with nicer beaches and this was great! You do have to walk a long way to the beach, but the views off the balcony of the bay more than makes up for it! Very happy with our stay and the booking was a breeze. Would definately recommend for a family or a quiet getaway.
Anthony S. Aug 2016
Extremely impressed, love that side of the island, the condo was just as advertised, looked exactly like pictures, very clean, and safe, we got to the beach club after the office had closed but we're still granted temporary access and that place is breathe taking, overall everything was great.
Christine V. Jul 2016
We love the pointe west resort. Quiet, great pools at the beach club and lazy river for the kids. If you like to cook, you'll need to bring spices like salt and pepper and more kitchen tools like you might need.
Courntey B. May 2016
It has been years since I've been to Galveston and I've never been to this particular property before. We now have a 1 year old and wanted a weekend getaway without the hassle of a long drive or flight. This was PERFECT. I love vacation rentals for the kitchen and separate bedrooms but this was a whole new level. Everything was so well maintained and just a lovely experience. It was so nice to have the pool area and bar for smoothies. The staff was spectacular. My daughter had a little mishap and your cleaning lady was SO SO sweet and helped us clean everything up. It is a great family friendly property with a nice crowd. We came through Freeport so we didn't even have to drive through the mess of Galveston on Memorial Day Weekend. It could not have been a better weekend. Thank you!!
Jennifer K. May 2016
The condo is really nice. My only complaint was there was no blanket for the sofa bed. We had to go into town and purchase one for our stay. Otherwise, everything was fantastic! We had a great time!
Aimie A. Mar 2016
This condo is 20 minutes past the main seawall area of Galveston. It is a nice quiet location. We didn't see anyone else while we were there. We went to the pool and it was nice. We did not buy bracelets due to cooler weather the week we were there. The condo was clean and smelled good. I was very impressed when we walked in. However, there were missing items from the kitchen, which are essentials when cooking, like skillets (there was one grill pan), mixing bowls and coffee mugs. This should be addressed soon. It was a hassle to buy these things that I already have plenty of at home. Also, only one wash cloth between both bathrooms. One small glitch with wifi, but was resolved on the next business day. Also, the condo has an alarm that goes off when opening the balcony door.
Manager response:
Thank you so much for your feedback about the kitchen items. We let our property manager know and they are going to add some so the kitchen is complete and ready for our guests to use. Thank you again for staying with us!
Hiru M. Mar 2016
We were most disappointed by the fact that there was no wifi as promised and no one could fix it. the master bedroom bed and the sofa bed were very uncomfortable. There was a coffee pot but no coffee cups. We had go out in the morning and buy cups to get our morning coffee. We called several times Friday night for fixing wifi and no one called back. Next morning a nice person tried to come and help buy could not. Owner changed the password and did not call back with the new one inspite of several calls . We had to buy wifi from xfnity. Location too far from beach and the beach club. Will not go back there.
Manager response:
We apologize for the inconveniences you experienced during your stay. The owner has provided us with the new password, and it has been updated in the information we send our guests. The Property Manager will look into the other items you have mentioned that were less than ideal.
Veronica L. Sep 2015
My family had a great time at Pointe Paradise. The view was great, and the Beach Club was wonderful. We'll definitely be going back in the future.
Rachel C. Sep 2015
Great weekend get away! Condo had amazing views of bay and preserve!! We couldn't get over the beauty on this end of the island. We kept referring to it as "not galveston." Felt more like the beaches of 30A in Florida panhandle. The beach club was awesome with all of the amenities one could need. Never needed to go anywhere else. Although beach club and pool were not really within walking distance. Definitely a drive or golf cart needed. We'll be back!
Lynne V. Jul 2015
We loved Pointe West. we will definitely return.We all loved the pools,family atmosphere,beach,beautiful views,restaurant,music, cook-out areas. We didn't need to go anywhere else!!! The store is fun also. We were able to buy some cute sandals and dresses. It's so wonderful because you can spend the whole day at the beach and pools. If you are thinking of going don't hesitate.The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is a perfect place for families!!!The views are beautiful.
Lauren O. Jul 2015
We had a wonderful time. The condo and the grounds were fantastic. We will definitely return.
Meg N. May 2015
I had a wonderful stay in this unit, it was everything one seeks during their getaway. Its comfy, clean, nice bay view, private, and overall a 100% positive experience!
Amy M. Mar 2015
