To begin with, the property is easy to get to from SW Houston and it is exactly what is promised on the Vacasa website. The property is professionally furnished, the beds are super comfortable, the kitchen appliances are modern and the whole property was professionally cleaned. The beach is only 5 minute walk and, it feels like you are on a private beach, clean and empty!!!

The house is huge.

This home was absolutely perfect for a small group of ladies for a bday celebration and will return with my husband in the future. The home is equipped with Alexa so just tell her what to play and there you have it. The home decor and interior selections are absolutely perfect, being a designer the furniture matched the luxury level of this home. The beds WOW! All top quality and this is absolutely important to me. You will not regret laying your head down for an afternoon nap and sleep with ease after a long day at the beach and pools. Even though it isn’t directly on the beach you get a beautiful coastal breeze that made us spend most of our time on the patios, you can take your pick as there is a bay view and two gulf facing. The patio off the master bedroom has the most breathtaking views of the stars and moon, it was a bright moon and we could see the waves as they rolled in at night. I absolutely will return to this home for my next family trip. It had everything to call this place home. Kudos to the Owners they definitely put the touches in to make this the perfect retreat.

Enjoyed our stay at this beautifully decorated, comfortable home for a much-needed socially distanced escape. Rented a golf cart, which made getting around much more convenient (and fun!). Would have liked more TP, hand soap, dish washing soap, grill tools and an oven mit. Also, the grill is a flat top style, which was good for burgers, but not as good for steaks. We'll be back!
Manager response:
Hi Julie, thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your socially-distanced escape! To clarify, all of our homes come with a starter kit of supplies. This includes both cleaning supplies and toiletries. Any additional supplies needed throughout the stay is the responsibility of our guests. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again in the future!

Pointe west is nice and quiet. It was a short golf cart ride to the beach.

This house was a perfect place for our 3 families, including 2 almost 3 year olds and a 15 month old. The house was very clean, well designed with a well stocked kitchen where we prepared all of our meals.. The beach was not crowded and an easy walk, we did not take advantage of Pointe West beach pool and club to avoid interactions with others. The wagon provided was a help for lugging things to the beach, we brought a sun umbrella which helped with shade. We would love to stay here again as what a wonderful family escape that provided social distancing!

This house was everything we hoped for and more- our family group had a great time.
The house was very clean and nice- we enjoyed sitting on the covered Patios/balconies, going to the ‘Beach Club’ pool area, and hanging out at the beach (about 3-400 yards from the house). The house was new, up to date and clean with nice furniture and appliances. Our 3 and 4 year olds loved the bunk beds!
Thank you for having us- we hope to be back soon.

This is a beautiful home and convenient to the beach. It is just a couple of minutes to walk to the beach entry. The kitchen was well-stocked for meals—it even had a margarita machine and a Kitchen Aid mixer (we did not use). The outdoor spaces are nice and there were beach chairs, a wagon, and sand toys for the beach. Beach towels were also provided. We loved the amenities at the Beach Club!

Be aware that the location is about 30 minutes outside of Galveston. We intentionally chose this location due to the private beach and wanted a quiet getaway. Make sure you stock up before arriving, as it does take time to go back into town.

We did have a couple of issues. The smoke detectors in the house kept going off randomly, even after we replaced the batteries. That was fun! We had to get batteries and find a ladder. After two days of this, we finally unplugged the one that was flashing red and it stopped. Also, we found loose hair still on all the bathroom floors (I’m blonde, the hair was dark.) and crumbs on the placemats on the dining table. There was even a loose playing card under one of them, so they obviously had not been moved to clean under them. We cleaned and sanitized it ourselves. Last, they provided extra pillows, but we never located the extra pillowcases for them. We checked everywhere—drawers, cabinets, etc. Luckily, we had brought a couple of pillows from home.

Here is our biggest complaint—you can’t get ahold of anyone if there is an issue. We reached out to Vacasa right away, but couldn’t get in contact with anyone. Call wait times were ridiculous (we gave up at 1 hour bc we did not want to spend our vacation on hold). We emailed them and we still haven’t gotten a reply. These were the only methods of contact info we received. There was not a place in the app to report a problem. Luckily, all our issues were easily solved on our own.
Manager response:
Hi, Alicia! Thank you taking the time to tell us about your stay; guest feedback is so invaluable to us. The batteries throughout the home will be checked, and the property manager has spoken with housekeeping about the placemats and table. We sincerely apologize we have been so difficult to reach due to being short-staffed during COVID-19; we are actively working on bringing our employees back and hiring more staff so we can once again offer our 5 star services. We appreciate your patience and hope to see you again!
