We liked this place because we go to Galveston every so often and wanted to try the quieter west end. The 2bdrm 2 bath was in our budget for a spontaneous long weekend getaway over Christmas break. Thank goodness the elevator worked- it’s on the 3rd floor but really 4th since garage is ground. It’s advertised Pet Friendly, which if you don’t understand that concept and cannot hold your breath then don’t pick this. The pet urine smell was really strong! In master bdrm and master closet. The living room and kitchen is all tile, so it must’ve been on the rug and/or couches too. Bring your own everything- coffee, filters, foil, food, tissue boxes, paper towels, etc. The stores are in town about a 20minute Drive. The balcony was really big and I enjoyed the view. It’s a good walk to the beach on the two piers beside ours. Ours didn’t go all the way to the sand/shoreline. The Beach Club House has the gameroom open during the day, so kids enjoyed basketball and ping pong. The hot tub was closed as was the grill restaurant since it’s during winter months. There are rattlesnakes signs-so beware- we actually saw one on the sand dunes!! The Pointe West development is really nice though.
Thank you for leaving your review with us, Tricia. The strange odor has been addressed, and we hope to see you again!
The resort is clean and quiet, not much to do, likely due to the timing of our visit. About 30 minutes away to Galveston. The unit is quite simple, you need to bring your own coffee, oil, seasonings if you would like to cook. No good restaurant unless going out to Galveston.
This was our second year in a row to stay in this condo, and we had a great time! The floor plan is perfect, and we love that we could bring our fur baby. The view is fabulous, and the Beach Club is always fun. Plus, there is easy access to the beach, which is never crowded. The water was blue, and we felt like we were in Florida!
Had all we needed. Great beach and loved the pool and club area. Like a resort!
This will be our annual go to vacation spot
Everything was amazing and super accessible. The condo had everything we needed and we saved a ton of money by not eating out. Although when we did eat out the restaurant at Point West Beachclub was amazing. The property is gorgeous and my kids loved how close we were to the beach and pools. Amazing vacation!
Condo was nice but the property /resort needed work
Resort like atmosphere. Kids loved the pools!
This condo is well maintained and more than enough room for our family of four. Wonderful shaded balcony. Quiet beach!! Beach club great!! We will be back!
Loved the distance to club, beach, and how clean and comfortable it was.
We enjoyed our stay at Decked Out. The Pointe West resort has a lot of amenities to enjoy especially the great restaurant! It was convenient to be able to walk to the Beach Club and use the elevator for packing/unpacking since the unit is on the 3rd floor.
This was our first trip to Pointe West---we lived in Galveston years ago, and have traveled there many times with our 2 small children, but never out to Pointe West. We were very pleasantly surprised! This area rivals Sea Side or Destin area in Florida or any other cute town you are trying to escape too...but half, or even a quarter of the drive time! The units are great--they provide one covered parking space, a huge locker area to store beach floats and wagons and an elevator up to the unit that worked for us every time. The location is gorgeous--you over look a small pond with a fountain and the ocean is behind it. A short walk to the beach club pool where we spent most of our time--ordered drinks and meals poolside while our kids played. The boardwalk down to the ocean has a ramp on BOTH ends making pulling a wagon a cinch! The room was very nice and spacious and in a great location. We had an issue with the master shower leaking, and the air conditioning went on the fritz one night--but when we called--the lady who answered drove straight out to see what the problem was. It was some weird issue with the thermostat box--and it was only off for a few hours--and came back on. Other than those few things--that I am sure are quite fixable--we loved our stay! This was like a little corner of heaven! We live in the Dallas area--so it is much closer than the Florida beaches--and the private beach here was clean, groomed daily and not crowded! We will definitely stay here again!
This was a very nice Condo my daughter called me to ask me how I liked it and I told her that if it was for sale at the right price I would buy it. So I guess you could say I really liked the Condo.
Amazing sunrise ocean view from the balcony. Its a little bit of a walk to the beach but it is all worth it. The lazy river is the perfect area for breath taking sunset views. Be sure to bring trash bags, laundry soap, dishwasher soap, etc. The amount of each provided is limited, no refills. The water pressure on the 3rd floor makes the shower feel like you are walking through feathers and takes a little longer to rinse. The club house closes at 5:00 pm everyday so be sure to read the info given by Vacasa. The drive into Galveston is approximately 25-30 minutes. Overall, best place in Galveston we've come across to stay at. We will definitely be back!!
We enjoyed our stay and would come back. Kuchen had plenty of equipment, which was very helpful since we only ate out one meal. Great views of sunrise and sunset. Comfortable and relaxing!
The home was perfect. Balcony was huge and in the shade except in the mornings. Sleeper sofa wasn't great but I haven't met one that is. They have a foam topper in the master closet you can use to help make the sleeper sofa a bit more comfortable. Overall this was a great weekend getaway for us. Thanks!!!
This was a great unit in a great location for us - very quiet with little competition for the beach, which was our primary reason for vacationing here. The bed in the Master is AMAZING! Great view of the ocean from the deck. Everything we needed in the unit. Very comfortable for us and our two teenage daughters.
The only thing I would caution about has to do with Point West at this time of year. Their normal amenities are cut back - which is understandable since it is not their busy season. I would just encourage renters to check out the common areas before shelling out $10 each per wristband, which gives you access to the resort amenities. The restaurant and bar were not open half the time we were there, the game room is tiny and was crowded, and the one time we tried to go to the pool, the water was very COLD and there were nasty mating flies everywhere. It wasn't a big deal for us, but needless to say I felt like I wasted $40 on wristbands. Like I said, just check it out to make sure you will use them before you purchase.
As far as the location and the unit itself, as long as you don't mind being 1/2 hour away from everything in Galveston and enjoy quiet beautiful beaches, this place is great. You should definitely consider renting here. Just check with me first to make sure you're not stealing our dates for next year. :)
The area was great for our family stay. The apartment was perfect for our family of 4 and 1 dog. The beach club is a minute walk and the beach was a two minute walk. The only negative is we stayed during spring break and realized the pools are not heated.
We really enjoyed our stay at Decked Out! It was a spacious 2 bed/2 bath condo that was perfect for our little family. Our only complaint was that it seemed the fridge was turned on the morning we checked in so it took overnight for the fridge to cool off enough to chill our food and keep it at a safe temperature. Other than that, we were close enough to the beach that we could see it from the balcony and still enjoy the sound of the waves and the breeze even while our littles napped inside the condo!
My family of four had a great time at this condo. The pool wise nice and the beach was wonderful. Both were pretty empty, but that was ok with us! Had a blast flying our 6 meter kite on the beach.
Pointe West delivers one of the best Gulf Coast experiences around. Decked Out was a well maintained property. We will definitely return!
We enjoyed every minute staying at this condo! The views, amenities, service, and overall atmosphere was wonderful. Shortly after we arrived, we received a phone call from a representative of Vacasa that the ice machine in the freezer recently broke. The gentleman on the phone explained that the repairman wasn't able to come out to fix it right away, so he kindly brought us a couple bags of ice. We thought this was very kind and that the service went above and beyond. We would definitely recommend this property for a great stay in Galveston.
We just returned from taking our 2.5 and 1 year olds on our first family vacation. The location was perfect! The main pool and beach was just a stroller ride away! We also loaded up the car and took the short commute over to the 'lazy river pool'. Our little ones loved the zero entry area, fountains and riding in floats around the lazy river. The room came equipped with everything we needed! We plan on making this an annual tradition!
We didn't want to leave!!! We should of stayed longer!!
We loved how close it was to the beach club!!
Prior to booking this property we noted some of the reviewers were dissatisfied with the cleanliness of the property. It was very clean when we arrived. The electronic lock we were given to get into the property was not working when we arrived, I called got voicemail and then called back and the person was able to give me the secondary code to get the key within 5 min.
As others have stated it is a 20-30 min drive to get to Kroger and most of the restaurants on the island however, we knew that when we booked. We made a run to the grocery store and stocked up and cooked many of our meals while we were there.
The balcony is large with a table and chairs as well as loungers which we enjoyed.
Overall a great property, we would do it again!
Previous reviews had stated problems with cleanliness and other amenities. Our experience was the opposite. Everything was very clean and we seemed to have everything we needed!
We did a lot of cooking on our short stay and the only thing we had seem to be missing was measuring spoons and a functioning can opener. Otherwise it was very useful, sharp knives, all cooking epuipment from pots, pans, toaster, microwave, blender, and good oven.
Beds were comfortable and entire space was very inviting and homey. It was well stocked with basic toiletries, towels, and cleaning items (trash bags, laundary soap, dish soap, broom, etc).
If you are looking for a spot that is away from the crowd, serene, and a spot to relax and rejuvenate, this is your place.
I loved everything except the linen and towels wivh made it very unpleasant .
We are happy that you loved the home! We are sorry to hear that the linens and towels were unpleasant during your stay. Our local property manager has been notified to address any issues and concerns with them. We appreciate you choosing Vacasa and hope to have you again soon!
We came down for Spring Break and stayed 3 days. The condo was perfect very spacious and clean. The kids room had a DVD player and a chest full of toys. My 7 and 3 year old boys felt right at home. The beach club had activities arts and crafts for them in the afternoon so it gave us an hour to relax without the boys. Everything was perfect we will absolutely be back!
Place needs a thorough top to bottom clean. It was pretty obvious the cleaning staff weren't doing their very best. Otherwise it was a nice unit and location. We had a nice vacation despite all the cleanliness issues with this particular property.
We are sorry to see that the home was not as clean as it should have been, and we will ask housekeeping to do a deep clean as soon as they can.
Not as expected!. not sure because it was during low season period ( 23-24th Dec) !! but I had to clean everything again by myself. also I'm not sure when was the last time they have used pets control. charging > 100$ cleaning at the end I ended up cleaning by myself!.
adding the club was the worst place I ever seen in my life!. Gym was closed at 7 am!
Overall , you relay need to work on cleaning even low season periods!
Thank you for your review. We are terribly sorry to see that housekeeping was so poorly done for your stay. The Property Manager will follow-up with the cleaning staff to ensure that cleaning is properly done. We hope that you enjoyed the condo and resort otherwise!
Overall the unit is nicely located and beautifully decorated. However, closer attention to cleanliness and maintenance issues would be appreciated. Also an overview of information provided to guest to ensure they have received all necessary information for the property is essential.
Beautiful weekend with plenty of sun and fun. Unit was very clean and convenient to the Beach Club to share time with other friends staying there. Would recommend this condo to others.
We loved our stay and will recommend to others. Everyone was extremely helpful and friendly, especially the office, gift shop and downstairs restaurant. Everything we purchased was top quality. We were disappointed that the upstairs restaurant wasn't open anytime were there. The infinity pool was awesome, the lazy river was alright but more for young children! We loved our stay!
The adult children, grandkids love the beach, pool, hot tub, had something to do. Pool area great, everything clean. The only suggestion is putting the cakes in the ponds as the marsh Mosquitos were vicious. AND bring insect repellant in those areas!
We enjoyed our recent stay. The condo was exactly what we expected. The beach was clean and easy to access. An especially nice surprise was the beautiful pool and good food at the restaurant at the beach club.
everything is as shown in the listing, we enjoyed our weekend. No complaints.
