Summer Winter Retreat 26511 Mangrove #102, Galveston, TX 77554

Take in the stunning views of the property and the horizon line of the Gulf, and enjoy access to walk ways, stocked ponds, glittering pools, and the beach at this Galveston vacation rental.

Located at the Pointe West Resort, 25 miles from the Strand, this Galveston getaway is 1,000 acres of well-maintained grounds with activities to suit every need.

Eclectic and homey with a colorful flair, guests can socialize or enjoy time separately with an open floor plan and cozy furnishings. You're most definitely on island time here with a zany, colorful clock on the wall. Bright red dining chairs and similarly vibrant decor add fun and charm to this rental.

After a day of combing the beach or swimming at the Beach Club, loaf on two sofas with plenty of throw pillows while a favorite cable show is watched or the Internet is perused via the provided WiFi.

An open kitchen with granite counters, dark cabinetry, and stainless steel appliances welcomes home cooks to create a family favorite to be shared at the six top dining table or out on the balcony for a lovely sea breeze. Light snacks and cups of coffee can be shared over the breakfast bar for three. When the meal is over, put the dishes in the dishwasher and head out to explore the property.

This home can comfortably sleep eight guests (six adults maximum, please) in two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Both bathrooms have stand-up showers. The master suite is regal and colorful with a king bed, a private TV, and beach-themed decor.

The bunk room has two twin trundle beds - perfect for two close friends or four kids to share. There's even a chalk board here to play tic-tac-toe or hangman late into the night.

An additional queen-size sleeper sofa in the living room provides extra accommodations as necessary. Need to freshen up your swimwear? Toss your suits in the washer/dryer, located in its own closet.

After settling into this charming condo, go explore Pointe West's property. Take the highway underpass to the Gulf side to explore the stretch of pretty beach or to splash in the pools at the Beach Club.

Take advantage of an onsite fitness center, or the 14 miles of paved pathway throughout the property, just perfect for jogging, biking, or strolling. Stocked ponds are available to fish in, and a nature walk on the bay side of the property takes guests through tall sea grass and rolling sand dunes.

Don't feel like cooking or driving? Breezes Restaurant and Topsiders Bar are privately owned and onsite for yummy meals outside the home. Guests of Pointe West are offered access to the Galveston Country Club a little over 12 miles up-island, with tennis, pools, dining options, and golf. Right next door is Galveston State Park for birding, fishing, mountain biking, and hiking.

A day trip to Galveston is a day of adventure with trips to the Historic East End for a walking tour of preserved architecture, a visit to the Strand for shopping and dining, or to attractions like the Historic Pleasure Pier or Moody Gardens.

However you spend your island time, this Texas vacation rental will be waiting to welcome you home.

**Please 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.**

    The resort offers many wonderful amenities, but it is located approximately 45 minutes from all of the area attractions. The views are beautiful and the condo provides almost everything you could need. The kitchen needs a few more cooking items, but otherwise everything was great. Keep in mind that you must buy a bracelet for the pool and the pool office closes at 5 PM. If you arrive after 5 PM, you will not be swimming until the next day. The braces cost $10 per person.

    My husband and I stayed the weekend for our birthdays. We had a great time. The condo was nice, but we had higher expectation's. When we arrived there was a weird smell, but it went away. The kitchen seemed to be fully stock, but when we wanted to bake cookies, we found that there were no baking sheets for the oven. Another things I would recommend is a blow dyer. But other than that it was a nice, the sun sets were beautiful

    We are from Washington state and since our oldest is going to school in Texas, we came down to visit and decided to spend a few days in Galveston. We loved our condo, it was clean, spacious and quite. We actually didn't even go to downtown Galveston except the stop on the way in for groceries. This really is the best place for groceries, we made a trip to a little mart on the second day and we paid for it's convenience. I suggest planning your grocery purchasing for your whole trip at the Kroger in town. It is about 1/2 hour to get back into town and if you are anything like us, you won't want to go back. The resort had everything we needed. They have two pool areas that are very clean. We were there in early April and for the good part of one morning we had the pool completely to ourselves. By the afternoon, there were only four other families to share with. There is direct beach access from the main pool area and a game room that my 14 year old really enjoyed. We definitely want to go back!

    Very nice condo, price was very reasonable. However, as others have stated, you will need to drive to the beach or either one of the swimming pools, Pointe West Resort is sprawling, but nice. Great beach and I enjoyed the many walking trails. But watch out for the nasty little opossum who makes his home right in front of the condo building! Beautiful sunsets too! One small complaint. Only 2 cereal bowls and no baking sheet. Kitchen could have been a little better equipped for eating in. Other than that, would recommend this unit and Pointe West! But be forewarned, the resort is a 20 minute ride from super market and any sort of attractions. If you want to be close to the action, don't stay here!

    The properly was lovely, very close to the Beach Club and infinity pool, both of which were amazing. The view of sunsets from the balcony was wonderful! Be sure to bring all that you may need, including an iron, toilet paper, kleenex, etc., as the unit is not as well-equipped as it appears in the website.

    For the price, this property was really far away from Galveston and pretty much everything most people go to this area for while on vacation. I think it should be made clear in the advertising just how far out this property is. Restaurants and shopping and entertainment and attractions are all a good half hour drive away. The beach here was very clean and this property did have nice swimming pools. For me, it was just too far away from Galveston.

    we enjoyed our time here, unfortunately someone stole all of our fishing stuff that we had in the truck. there aren't any security cameras anywhere on the property so there wasn't anything we could do. other than that happening, we had fun, close to the beach and away from busy Galveston.

    We had a wonderful visit to Galveston and were very pleased with the condo. It was everything we had hoped for and equipped with everything we might need. This unit is out from town and was a concern before arriving. However, we found that it was perfect because the beach was not as crowded. We have already recommended the unit to family who enjoy visiting Galveston.

    The condo was Super comfy and appeared to have been updated recently. The area is quiet and the grounds are very well maintained. Our balcony was perfect for watching the sunset. The beach was clean and did not have the crowd you would expect to see at Stewart beach for example. Will definitely stay there again.
