This dog-friendly Pointe West Resort vacation rental is a great family vacation spot, complete with a shared pool and bay and ocean views!
This bayfront home has lovely views, both of the bay and of the ocean. The beach is nearby, accessible under the highway underpass. The Pointe West Beach Club is less than a quarter mile away, so it's no trouble to head over at night to tell stories around the fire. The downtown area of Galveston isn't far off at 25 miles to the northeast.
The color scheme of neutral beiges, soft blues, and light grays contrasts with the darker colors of the wooden furniture to create a sophisticated, calm feel. Light floods the living area through large windows and glass doors that lead out onto the balcony. Settle onto the sectional sofa to watch some cable or a rented DVD, or log onto the WiFi to check the next day's weather.
A fully equipped kitchen is a great place to whip up a delicious meal or a light snack. Make the kids a healthy breakfast smoothie in the mornings while the adults wake up with the assistance of freshly brewed coffee, then slide the dishes into the dishwasher and head out for the day's adventures. When it's time for dinner, enjoy your food at the dining table or outside on the balcony in the fresh air.
Community barbecues, both gas and charcoal, are available for you to grill any fresh-caught fish to tender perfection (please note, you will need a reservation to use the grills). Better still, a community pool offers a nearby, well-maintained place to beat the heat and splash around to your heart's content.
When it's time to rest, three bedrooms offer sleeping space for up to nine guests. For a small nightly fee, you can also bring along two dogs of 25 pounds or less. The master suite is beautifully decorated with paintings and handsome furniture, and has a private door to the balcony, a large en suite bathroom with a shower and tub, a flatscreen TV, and a king bed. The second bedroom has a king-size bed and an en suite bathroom, and the third has a twin-over-double bunk bed, perfect for the kids to hole up in. If your party needs more space, there's a queen-size sofabed.
Three full bathrooms ensure that there's never a line when you need to get ready in the morning. Don't worry about packing enough clothes for a longer stay - a private washer and dryer is available for your convenience.
There's a reason that families with children love Galveston. Head to Moody Gardens for a thrilling and educational experience. See the animals at the Aquarium Pyramid, then learn about endangered plants in the Rainforest Pyramid, which houses one of the most accurate replicas of a rainforest.
If you've still got the learning bug, check out one of the museums in Galveston. Find out more about aviation at the Lone Star Flight Museum, hear about train history at the Galveston Railroad Museum, or visit the Texas Seaport Museum to tour the tall ship Elissa, a barque built in 1877 which remains lovingly maintained and seaworthy to this day!
It's time to treat yourself to some quality time with your loved ones. Book today!
