Well-appointed, waterfront home w/shared pool & hot tub!
Barefoot elegance and sheer comfort make your stay in this Galveston vacation rental at Pointe West Resort quite special. Within comfortable walking distance of the beach and the resort's Beach Club, guests of this sweet abode will find home comfort on the shores of the Gulf.
Contemporary decor meets antique style with classic textiles, oriental rugs, and earth-toned furnishings. Natural light brightens the olive green walls to create a soothing atmosphere. Settle in on two plush sofas to watch movies on the flatscreen TV in the living room, or snooze in a patch of sun. Select from the board game collection and play out on the patio!
Cooking will become a family affair in this lovely kitchen and dining area - the granite-top dining table set for six matches the countertops in the kitchen, and makes prepping a snap. The kitchen comes with stainless steel appliances, a dishwasher, and plenty of plates to go around. Take your meals outside to admire the views and catch a sea breeze.
This two-bedroom, two-bathroom home offers six people plenty of privacy when alone time is needed: the master suite not only comes with its own deck access, but a king bed, and a private DVD player for couple's movie nights. The second bedroom, with its bright blue wall, sleeps two people comfortably in a full-sized and a twin-sized bed; this room also comes with its own DVD player. One of the sofas in the living room turns into a sleeper at night for extra accommodations.
Daytime is sure to be spent outside. Beat the Texas heat on the beach, or in one of Pointe West's gorgeous pools. Stay active on the paved jogging paths or in the fitness center; visit Breezes Restaurant, or take a trip to Galveston Country Club for more dining, tennis, and golf - as a guest at Pointe West, the country club offers its amazing hospitality to you. Feel like a day trip? Galveston is just 40 minutes away!
The time has come to pamper yourself - start here, in this lovely Galveston vacation rental.

We mentioned a few minor details to Vacasa to make it even better. More wine glasses, etc....
I enjoyed sitting on the deck and listening to the birds.
Nice condo - well kept. A short distance from the pier to the beach. Amenities are great - washer, dryer, TV, granite countertops, 2 baths, etc. The balcony is very large and has a great view. No noisy neighbors. The garage space was adequate. Did not try the Pointe West restaurant/pool. The beach is very nice. No motor vehicles and not crowded at all - lots of sand. Found plenty of live hermit crabs which the kids loved. I would recommend this place.
While there were a few things needing repair, my wife and I enjoyed some great quite time, perfect place for quiet time!!
You can sit on the patio and have a drink and enjoy the view.
Make sure you don't need an elevator. The elevators are not a sure thing so if it worked, great. We mentioned it to the front desk and they seemed like they don't want to hear about it.
The condo was beautiful and clean with a great view of the Gulf. I especially loved that there was a convenient walking path and access to an exercise facility.
Nicely accommodated condo with upgrades. Large balcony offering a lovely view of the ocean. There are no carts for taking luggage and groceries up to the rooms, if that's a concern for renters. The walk to the beach and to beach club might be an issue for some, but for two adults with kids, it wasn't a problem to walk the short distance to both. I loved our stay and the privacy. The beach club required us to pick up new bands each day to enter, fyi. Since we rented in off season, we didn't have to pay for them. $10 in high season. The one garage space is very small. We had to back our truck in or else would be stuck trying to get out if both cars parked on each side of us. Then we received a sticker on our windshield saying we couldn't back in to spots and that we would be towed. We were never told of that restriction nor saw signage pertaining to that. We moved our truck to the limited (5 parking spaces) outside but then saw workers and other full time residents backed in to the garage spots. Plus the hot tubs and pools were closed while we were there. I thought it odd the front lady didn't mention that when we went to get our bands, seeing my daughter in her swimsuit, but that's an aside. All in all, a great condo unit, but pointe west itself has some unstated rules and restrictions and doesn't seem to let people know of the limited parking and small spaces. Elevator was a nice perk as well as a nice washer/dryer. A good deal of bedding and spacious for our 4. I'd definitely reserve again!
Well decorated, clean, nice view of the Gulf of Mexico
This condo was nice with great club house and pool area. However, don’t plan on any informational TV, you know like the weather channel or national news. Otherwise, pretty good.
Beautifully furnished condo with a great view of the beach. Easy walk to the beach and just a bit further to the pool. Nice private beach. Not very close to a grill, but we drove over to the Sunset Pool (perfect at sunset!) and were able to grill there. Only real complaint as far as necessities - there was no cutting board or decent knife. Everything else was fine. Loved having washer/dryer so that we could wash towels before going home.
My husband and 2 kids (age 5 and 3) had a wonderful time at the beach in this condo. The condo was exactly what we were expecting. It was easy to find (great information and directions in our communications), easy to enter (code for the door) and steps from the beach. We were pleasantly surprised to have toiletries (hotel size), dish soap, and laundry detergent provided. The towels and linens were clean and it was a quiet location. The floors seemed to be a little sandy (but that's expected at the beach, we just made sure to sweep every day). Getting wristbands to the amenities and pool areas was very easy and no hassle. There is a TV in the kids room as well as some kids movies that we used. The beach was clean and there were no cars allowed (we were located next to the pillars that prevent vehicles from driving on our side of the beach; a must with small kids). Make sure to bring your food for your stay because the condo is located about 40 mins from a grocery store (we knew this ahead of time and came prepared). All in all, we had a wonderful time and look forward to coming back next year!
We enjoyed our stay... there were several dust bunnies but clean beyond that. My only suggestion would be to add a chain lock to the front door. We had to move two chairs in front of the door to keep our 2 year old twins from opening it on their own.
We have followed-up with housekeeping about dusting and will ask the owners about adding a chain lock. Thank you!
Our family has returned to this condo multiple times. It's got comfortable furniture and good beach views from balcony.
We had just a couple of days to enjoy the beach with our little kids, and this condo was perfect! A quick walk across the boardwalk and you're right on the beach. We were able to make all meals in the fully equipped kitchen and enjoy the huge patio as well! Would definitely stay here again!
This is the last house in the resort, which we liked to be away from it all. We rented a golf cart and it was perfect. The beds were comfortable and there were two ocean views; one from master bedroom. The beds were comfortable and there was lots of space. Suggestions for improvement: the fire alarm went off as if the batteries were going dead one night around 3am. It took new batteries and some wrestling of it to get it to stop. The kitchen pans were a disaster. They were teflon coated, but there were so many scraps in them that I called to complain. They just aren't safe to cook with. The lady dropped of a new pan from her house, but it wasn't much better. This was a huge bummer as we cooked every breakfast in and half the dinners too. There was 1 storage container in the whole kitchen. Not a baggie or foil to wrap any leftovers in. There were NO kitchen supplies other than some salt and pepper. Also, there were 3 beach towels. That's it. When I called to ask for more since there were five of us, I was told the condo didn't even come with 3 so she wasn't sure why any were there. this is all fine, but it should be communicated before to plan properly. There was a locker by the cars, but no key was left. This would have been great to put our beach chairs instead of hauling them to our balcony every day. Oh, and there was NO can opener!??!? Of course, we found that out the hard way. The floor was not 100% clean upon arrival as it felt gritty from sand. These are all little things and it was otherwise wonderful. Just know what you are getting into before going.
We are sorry to see there were some frustrations with this visit. We have put new frying pans in the unit. Most owners lock the cage because they store personal items in there they would like to keep safe. We apologize if this was a frustration. We do our best to stay on top of batteries and light bulbs, but they do go out without warning, which is why we supply extras in the condo.
It's all the way down the island about 30 minutes but very quiet and relaxed. Make sure you have your food and gas for car--although there are 1 or 2 places for essentials like milk, bread, beer.
We had a wonderful stay. Very comfortable accommodations with beautiful ocean view. Love that this unit had quality finishes and all the amenities we desired. Beach is cleaner on this end of the island and not crowed. We will definitely come back!
My husband and I and our 3 boys stayed here and loved the layout of the place. The second bedroom was great for the boys. The only complaint, which I had read before booking and so I went into it knowing, was the property is far from the beach club and boardwalk to cross to the beach. It was a work-out lugging all of our things and the kids to the beach (even with a wagon). The beach was great because it was not very crowded and we did feel comfortable leaving our tent set up and going back and forth to the condo so we did not have to keep packing up and carrying the stuff too often. Overall wonderful trip
This was a very nice condo away from the highly commercialized and crowded beaches in the main part of Galveston. The beach was fairly easily accessed with no driving required. The beach was nice and not crowded. The balcony view was beautiful. Very spacious balcony with nice seating.
I would love to go to sleep and wake up here everyday! The morning view and the sound of the ocean at night were so relaxing. The moon and stars reflection on the water were breathtaking. This was by far the most relaxing weekend I have had in a long time.
We had a great stay! We liked that this property was away from the busy area of the beach club. We rented a golf cart and it made it easy to frequently visit the beach or either of the pools. The property was immaculate!
Very nice place. Great price and accomodated the 6 of us nicely! Nice pool. Nice clean beach.!
Property had fabulous views from inside plus balcony! Amenities and food at beach club was fabulous.
We loved our stay here. Be sure to check in with the registration desk - they had lots of good info for us, including a 2nd pool area that was across the street and had beautiful sunsets (and a lazy river pool). Was well worth the $10 fee each to have access to the main pool/restaurant/bar/gift shop areas and the "sunset pool"!
I would stay here again. Plenty of games for the kids, great views and an easy walk to the beach.
If you are looking for a condo at one of the best locations on the island, this is. Pointe West is always an enjoyable place to retreat to and the Sea Sunset tops it off! It has a great view of the Gulf, nicely appointed and close to the beach crossover. If you are an early riser, catch the outstanding sunrises over the water from the balcony. You will enjoy your stay!
Overall, a good experience. Nice condo, well equipped, comfortable, with a great deck and view. There was, however, no soap as advertised. Also, the "shared pool and hot tub" is misleading as these features are at least a half mile walk from the condo itself, making them inconvenient to access. Also, the walk to the beach was longer than anticipated and treacherous once we got past the boardwalk portion...lots of standing water, deep grass, etc. The upstairs neighbors were also quite noisy, stomping around above the master bedroom at 6 am...not cool. All in all, though, a great place to stay for a good price.
I would use Vacasa again. Staff was accessible, responsive and helpful. Property owners and vacationers should feel secure in using Vacasa.
