Clean, spacious and inviting. We had a great time and can't wait to go back!
The condo was large and well appointed with nice furnishings. The king bed was awesome, the patio was huge with lots of space. The ocean was just a short walk away. We enjoyed seeing and hearing the waves crashing. It's about 20 miles from Galveston, which is great if you want peace and quiet...but not too far to go in for dinner. We loved it, and will definitely stay again.
View.. comfortable clean accommodations
The condo was perfect for our needs, two people and one dog. It’s a quick walk to the beach, with two beach access ramps. The condo itself was very clean and looked to be newly remodeled. The king bed was comfortable. There are three huge flatscreen TVs, one in each of the rooms. The covered balcony overlooks the beach. The condo is close to the beach club, but we had no issues with noise. We did, however, hear every move the upstairs neighbors made. The dog didn’t love that. Would definitely recommend the property.
Great place, very updated and clean. Would definitely rent again.
This condo was beautiful and comfortable for our girls trip. Had a great time! Will definitely stay here again!
Condo is remodeled. Stayed here 2 years in a row. It is the best location at pointe west. We have been coming for 9 years. Dog friendly and really clean. Front row beach and next to the pool and restaurant!
We loved this condo. It was clean, the furnishings were beautiful and we were able to bring our two small dogs on their first mini vacation to the beach! Can't wait to come back!
This place had 2 hair dryers!! (I would've gladly traded one or both them for just an extra roll of toilet paper since there was only two rolls to be found (searched every drawer- just two). I would also trade both hair dryers for perhaps an extra towel (hand, wash, bath- no matter, just one extra.) Paper towels. I'd trade a hair dryer for paper towels. (I'm glad I brought a roll.) The one provided had about 40 sheets. (40 for 3 meals a day for 5 days for 2 adults and 2 kids and unplanned spills) (2+2) x 5 x 3 + spills = 60+spills. Not enough. With bonus napkins provided: maybe. No napkins though so = not enough. Dish soap. 1 ounce. 1. (free with purchase but that's it!) Aside from the minimalism the place was extremely clean. (I don't know how cuz there wasn't a single cleaning product to be found!) (They must bring someone in to clean...) I'll stay here again but I will add to my list of things to bring: toilet paper, dish soap, paper towels, napkins, bath towels, various soaps (including dish, hand, hair, body), salt. There was no salt. Bleach wipes. I've got room for all of this because I won't need to pack a hair dryer.
We are sorry to see this guest was missing some supplies and wish they would have called us about them. We do only provide a starting amount of paper products and detergents, but guests can always call and ask about more if they are in need. Thank you!
This place had the best view of the ocean, was clean, and spacious for our family of 5. I loved that we didn't have to cross a busy street to get to the beach! The pool was fabulous, too. We would love to stay here again!
Perfect location. Next to the beach and the pool. Very well maintained
I loved the location. The vacation home was beautiful and very clean. The ocean view was breath taking.
Great location! Beautiful views and close to the Beach club.
My family stayed here after finding this spot on Booking.com and it was a very nice experience. Very relaxing and the staff was great. Also had another pool area down the road from our resort's pool that we had access to. The kids just loved it. Will recommend and stay again.
The location of this condo was a big part of the appeal. We loved being able to walk to and from the beach and pool every day. The Pointe West beach was always clean and we never have the hassle of obnoxious drunk people. The pool is divine, and having a bar and grill with poolside service available was a plus.
However the condo is worn. Little things like a broken toilet seat, holes in the walls, and a stubborn back door definitely added up. The worst part was the strong odor of pet urine at the front door and back door. I know it's a pet friendly condo, but the smell was terrible.
We have been to Pointe West before and loved it. We will definitely be back, just not to this condo.
Good location but access to the pool is an additional cost to the pricey rental. If something is broken good luck getting it fixed. Should have stayed at a hotel in town instead.
We're sorry the guest was misinformed about the extra pool cost. This is information that is explained in the email they receive. The guest's mention of something broken refers to the elevator not working, which is monitored by the HOA. Thank you.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay - great views and excellent amenities at the Beach Club - had all the essentials for a comfortable stay - all we brought were groceries, beach towels, and personal clothing - great for families!
The apartment was very nice with a view of the ocean. Cell phone service is poor at best and there was no WIFI available, so plan accordingly. The pool is not heated so if that is a point of rental check the time of year for potential pool temperatures. TV channel options varied by what room you were in, which made hanging out in the condo not very relaxing. Great location with walking beach access and close by vehicle beach access. All in all with a few minor changes this place could be fantastic!
Nice place to stay. Very comfortable.They had everything that we needed. Beautiful view and beach. Loved our stay here and the late check out option.
Very nice resort at the end of the West Beach in Galveston. It does take about 15-20 minutes to get to restaurants and shopping but if you like the solitude and quiet it's worth it!
Pros: This condo has a really good view of the beach and ocean - absolute best thing about it. Furniture on porch over looking ocean extremely comfortable, but old with peeling pain. We still thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful sunrises. Fresh flowers in kitchen were a nice welcoming touch. Candles on the balcony were also a very nice touch. The resort in which condo is located is absolutely fabulous - pools, bar, restaurant, beach with no cars allowed - wonderful!
Cons: We were met by 2 live roaches immediately upon arrival. All three skillets in the kitchen and both spatulas were totally unserviceable - scratched, burned bottoms, or melted. Mini blind in Master was broken and shade on door did not fit - lots of light comes in, so don't plan on sleeping late (but the sunrise is beautiful). TV remote in Master was broken, so that was frustrating. The water pressure in one sink of master bath is very poor, so that sink almost useless. Safari themed furnishings interesting and good quality, but a bit over crowded for the space - not much really comfortable seating inside. Lots of pillows and throws, but seemed to need cleaning. I guess you go to the beach to be out anyway and balcony furnishings really were comfortable.
The Property Manager would like to sincerely apologize for the state of the unit during this guest's visit. The frying pans and spatulas have been replaced, and the other items will be addressed in the coming weeks during the unit's deep clean and maintenance inspection. We have been unable to find any cockroaches and believe the guest must have found Palmetto bugs that made their way in from the landing or balcony.
We enjoyed our stay here. We liked that the beach was right there. The club house accommodations were amazing!
Safari 202 has a great location, beachfront and right next to the beach club. The amenities on the property were great as well. The unit has a large balcony to enjoy the view. The only real downer about this unit is there is no wifi. We had to go over to the beach club to get any service. Feel that no wifi in 2016 is ridiculous. Would gladly rent this unit again if they added wifi.
The sea view is splendid,the beach is pactictically as you step outside ,the be a h is pristine.....the decor is cute although slightly worn, it could be cleaner,a new coffee maker is a must and maybe some stainless steel cookware...the sheets and towels were very nice a d the beds were comfortable,the patio/veranda was extremely pleasing although the patio furniture is in need of refurbishing.....otherwise it was a very nice place to go...
Housekeeping and the Property Manager will be performing a deep clean and maintenance inspection on the home now that the busy summer season has ended, and this will take care of the items addressed in this review.
I usually don't write reviews, but feel this is necessary. The view and location is good. But after a full day of beach and schlitterbaun it would be nice to relax and watch some TV, get online or maybe make a phone call. Only one very old tv was working and would cut in and out, so no tv for the boys. Tv controllers didn't even have batteries! No internet and could not make even a phone call unless I drove down the street. My son is a type 1 and could had been dangerous if an emergency was to arise. The master bed needs replaced because all the blood will rush to your head without a few pillows underneath it. The incline was very uncomfortable. I looked under the bed which apparently was broken. To fix this problem they put too tall of a piece of wood at the foot of the bed is why there is such an incline. The blinds in the master room are broken and will not open to enjoy the view of the ocean. The game room that we paid for was also pretty bad shape. The only thing that worked was the checkers table. I have stayed in many beachfront homes and condo rentals. I love West Pointe and the beach but the Safari Condo desperately needs updated. Beachfronts are a dime a dozen and for the price I could had a much better time spent elsewhere or in another Condo in West Pointe. Very disappointed.
We are sorry to see that this stay was not as relaxing as we would have hoped. The Property Manager is performing a fall inspection and deep cleaning of this home, and most of these issues will be addressed at that time. She will also be sure to recommend to the owners that they install WiFi and a landline in the home. Thanks!
Great views of the water from your large balcony. Well furnished with African motif. Right next door to the Beach club pool, restaurant, bar and other amenities. The beach is just steps away. We all enjoyed our stay, including our pup.
We spent a fun and relaxing weekend away over the 4th of July... with my wife and adult daughter. The property had an excellent and unrestricted view of the water and was conveniently adjacent to the Beach Club amenities... food, bar and music! The balcony of he property was especially pleasant. An absolute repeat visit is in order.
beautiful property and beautiful beach
Great location. Easy walk to beach. Easy access to pool.
Good condo with big african furnature and good view of galveston beach. Its about 22 miles from the center of Galveston, so is more of a beach condo than an in town one
Lovely location, 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit, probably once was grand, but now is need of updates and repairs. It's close proximity to the pool and beach is wonderful. If I were paying bargain prices to rent the unit, I'd put up with it, but when I'm paying a nice chunk of change to stay, I expected things to work, kitchen be stocked, and not worrying about the safety of some of the furniture. Also due to oversized furniture crowding walkways, I'd say it's not handicap accessible. Maybe someone will help this grand lady to be grand again.
We will take this feedback under consideration - we appreciate this guest taking the time to share it with us.
Not really what we were expecting as far as amenities go. No cable 98% of the time. And as the weather was horrid, there wasn't a lot of fun to be had.
The Safari Beach was not one of my favorite properties at Pointe West. It was overcrowded, dirty and was missing several amenities that they said they would include, such as bath soap. The toilet cover in the master bath was cracked so we couldn't even use it. The coffee pot was very old and basically non-functional. The extra sheets in the closet were bunched up in a ball and not folded so we had to wash them all first in case they weren't clean. The outdoor furniture was very old, peeling and dirty. There was also very few dishes to use (and no plastic glasses) so we had to run the dishwasher several times a day. But I will say the location was good as it was beach front and walking distance to the Beach Club.
We regret to see that you did not have a better experience here. The Property Manager will inspect the issues that have been brought to our attention so we can make sure everything is in order for our guests.
Perfect get away ...awesome view :) enjoyed it!!
This unit has a beautiful view and could be fantastic with some attention to update and maintenance issues. We enjoyed our stay, but definitely glad we got out of season rates, otherwise we would have been a little upset and disappointed. The key to repeat business is doing it correctly the first time and making sure your unit is always in tip top condition both inside and out.
Location, location, LOCATION for us is always the most important. We like to stay AWAY from the hustle bustle BUT close enough to enjoy activities. This place WAS GREAT. Resort was clean, friendly, had so many amenities that so many didnt. Absolutely loved our stay not only in Galveston bur at this condo. Will definately return.
Thanx for a great vacation
Ants in the Kitchen (PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE YOUR FOOD ON THE STOVE) WE HAD TO THROW AWAY part of Holiday Meal due to ANTS taking over
URINE STAINED BED/COMFORTERS/SHEETS
who wants to sleep in a disgusting bed, we took the urine stained comforter off..Washed the sheets twice, to try and sleep comfortably, no one was in the office at that time
The Alarm went off at 6:30am and stayed on about 45 mins Once again the Security said someone has been notified
my list could go on and on, but I just want this rectified, we spent $700 I do understand that was price is for OFF-PEAK SEASON, However if your going to Rent property and be OPEN , your guess would like a pleasant stay with functional amenities and clean bedding just as it is in PEAK SEASON
Thank you for your review. We regret to see that you did not have a better stay here. Housekeeping will take care of the ants and any washing that should be done. We hope you found the condo beautiful and that you were able to enjoy the resort amenities!
Great place to stay, will be back.
Great location well away from the congested traffic along the seawall. Galveston is only about a 35 minute drive if you want to go shopping or have dinner.
Great location. Nice unit but it could use some updating. Pointe West is always great.
While the Vacasa folks and those on-site at Pointe West were great, the condo itself didn't impress. The view was amazing, no doubt. And if you want to be close to the Beach Club, it's a great location. However, if your ideal beach experience doesn't include constant music from 8:30am-9pm, this may not be the unit for you. Similarly, if you really want to cook, you need a different unit or bring your own pots, pans, knives, salt, pepper, cutting board, dish towels, etc. Also, if you or your kids need wifi, stay elsewhere. That's right - no wifi!
The complete list of problems we had with this place is too long so it might be best to say it felt like it needed updating or for an owner or caretaker who cares just a bit more. The TV in the living room had three remotes but only one set of batteries and we never got the cable to work. The couch was uncomfortable. We only had two people so it was more space than we needed but the pictures make it look like it could easily accommodate six - don't be fooled! It's very packed with furniture and decor. The furniture on the patio was pretty comfortable but badly in need of a paint job. And at least twice we had to settle for the view from inside because the doors stuck so bad we couldn't open them.
I could see this being the perfect unit for two to four adults (if two of them don't mind twin beds), or two adults and two to four kids, who want to be close to the Beach Club and the walkover and aren't planning to do much cooking. It's a good rate given those conditions. If you want something a little more updated, ready for cooking or quieter, look elsewhere.
Thank you for taking the time to share your review with us. We are sorry to see that it did not work out well for your group; the Property Manager will take care of the TV remotes and will discuss your other comments with the owner. We are glad to see that you enjoyed the location as it does have a great view and places you within easy distance of the Beach Club and beach access.
Really enjoyed our time at PW. Loved how clean the beaches were. Even though it was mid July, the weather was very pleasant in the evenings. It was really nice to have the option between the beach, the pool and even lazy river. The best, though, was the gorgeous view of the ocean from our balcony every morning and night. I am spoiled now. Will have to always do beach front in the future.
our condo owner was a thoughtful owner and had nice small touches.
We enjoyed our stay and have already recommended the suite to a number of our friends! We will definitely return!
