We really enjoyed our stay at this house. Its beautiful and spacious enough for large families. Great location on the bay for fishing and a short drive to Point West Beach Club to access pool and beach. The house doesn't provide beach or bay equipment (chairs, umbrellas, kayak, etc.) So encourage you to bring your own. It was only a short 30min drive to the Strand and less than 10min to store and local restaurant. Overall, we highly recommend and would definitely book here again.

we appreciated the size and accommodations of the house.

Our family of seven stayed at the Blue Claw for a week and it was absolutely wonderful. The home itself is exactly as pictured and is beautifully decorated it makes you feel warm and welcomed right when you walk in. I read reviews before I booked and it mentioned how many stairs you would be climbing to get up to the top floor. I didn’t mind it at all (except for when we were carrying up our groceries) as there’s about four sets of stairs from your car to the kitchen/living floor. I was pleasantly surprised by the fact there is a mini master bedroom on the first floor along with two regular bedrooms and another bedroom with a set of bunkbeds. The first floor alone can quite comfortably sleep six adults and eight kids if it had two and up on the main floor of the house was the master bedroom along with the kitchen and common area which was nice to give you some separation from your kids or guest if you needed it. Every bedroom had its own bathroom and shower which was amazing and the views from the front and the back of the home or breathtaking. The sunsets alone we’re worth a visit! I highly recommend staying at this place for your next trip to Galveston.

Linda J. Sep 2021
Location, size and amenities in house, 4 bedrooms with king beds and attached bathrooms. Perfect!
Donella T. Aug 2021
We loved our stay in this home! It’s beautiful inside and out! Well appointed kitchen had everything we needed to make wonderful meals. The decks to watch sunsets were amazing! My older family members could have used an elevator as there are a lot of stairs but that was the only thing missing. I would definitely stay again.
Barbara K. Aug 2021
Loved this beautiful house! Plenty of pots, pans, & utensils for cooking, which is a good thing as most restaurants were not close. Fabulous views on the deck for the sunsets & jumping fish. Our little girls loved their bunk beds. John was extremely responsive & informative for all our needs. Definitely rent a golf cart, a great way to get to the beach. We would definitely rent again.
Erin M. Aug 2021
4 families totaling 16 people stayed in this house. Everything was spotless. Loved that there were 4 king beds and the bunk beds were full beds.
Ted H. Jul 2021
Great house in every way! First time on the bay side and we loved it. There were 12 of us with plenty of room to spare. Great mattresses and bedding, clean, quiet with ample air conditioning capacity even on the hottest days! Will definitely return!
Willard C. Jul 2021
this is an exceptional property. this was the 2nd time my extended family stayed here for the July 4th weekend, and I’ve already booked for next year. everyone loves this house.
Craig B. Jul 2021
Beach home was in great condition and was everything we expected and more. Our family plans are to rent Blue Claws again annually for our beach vacation!! It would have been Perfect if there would have actually been an elevator operating in the empty space the house was designed to have since the kitchen, common living area, main master bedroom and washer/dryer are located on the top floor. The home location provided great access to the bay and for watching the amazing sunsets in the evening. All bedrooms have their own bath with a 1/2 bath in the living area. Being pet friendly was a must for our family. Pointe West is a wonderful development providing many options for all types of recreation to the 2 pools, bay and beach with nice paved access to all without having to get on the main road. John - local Vacasa property manager was very available and a great help in addressing any questions. Thanks for providing a quality beach house. We had a great time!!
Parker M. Jun 2021
Excellent and well appointed home. Nice neighborhood, and very convenient to the beaches. Unobstructed 180 degree views off the back of the house across the marsh & water. Lots of space to spread out and relax.
Andrea W. May 2021
We had a large group (7 of us) and it accommodated everyone very nicely. We all had plenty of our own space and there was a big beautiful area for the kitchen dining and living room we could all gather together. It is within walking distance of the lazy river and you can also just walk out the back door and into the bay for some fishing. It is a convenient quick trip to the Seven Seas grocery mart (that is the best grocery mart on that entire strip we figured out). A golf cart is a must so you can drive it to the beach and to the beach club - it is a great source of entertainment. Big beautiful balconies. We loved the ice maker! That was a hidden treasure! I appreciated how clean everything was. I like that it was minimally and tastefully decorated. Perfectly set up as a vacation rental. You do not feel you are in someone else's house which I really appreciated. I gave this 5 stars! Can't beat this house!
John P. May 2021
The view was amazing and the house is spacious and beautiful.
ANTHONY B. Apr 2021
Beautiful home with everything you need. No need to bring extra kitchen gadgets, cookware, pot/pans, plates, etc. Well stocked house from toiletries, kitchenware, beddings, and towels. I would definitely stay here again.
Marlene D. Jan 2021

Steve P. Jan 2021

Jordan K. Sep 2020
It is clean and very spacious decks. Bring mosquito spray!!
Kelly B. Sep 2020
This house was beautiful. We had several families and it for all of us very comfortable. It has everything you need and comes with the most beautiful bay views. We would definitely be back.
Nancy H. Sep 2020
We loved the beautiful views from the porch. Lots of space for all of the family. The beach was very nice. They had a golf cart entry under the freeway and we did not have to cross the freeway to go to the beach. The tunnel under the road needs to be added to your information about the rental location. We enjoyed the pool area and dinner outside at the pool, restaurant, shopping, beach area not too far from the house. A small fee got wristbands is charged for use of the pool area.
Diana J. Aug 2020
This was a beautiful home.. very clean. I loved the layout
However, very challenging stairs for some one with CKD Stage4 with no assistance or elevator
I wish i would of also known to bring trash bags.
Caitlin/Laura R. Aug 2020
I had no idea a rental could be so nice!. I am sold on it. I'll come back here any day.
Melissa P. Aug 2020
The sunset views. The whole house is amazing.
Juli M. Aug 2020
I've always opted to stay on the beach until we picked this house. The bay views are awesome and it is much quieter. I am sold on bay homes.
Juliana R. Aug 2020
The house is right on the bay. It is gorgeous.
Jeff S. Jul 2020
We had 6 adults and 7 kids stay in this house for almost a week. Great house with all the amenities needed to live for a week. Walking distance to the lazy river pool and quick drive to beach access. We would definitely try to stay here next year.
Ruby J W. Jul 2020
This beautiful home made our family vacation perfect. The house is beautiful and near the pool and great entertainment area below the house.
Dave C. Jul 2020
the house was amazing. plenty of room for my family of 13. the kids loved the double bunk beds. we have 4 cooks in our family and the huge kitchen was perfect for all to have a hand at preparing meals. the decks were well used, adults on the third floor deck and the kids on the second floor deck.
Bill M. Jul 2020
This house was awesome and I would highly recommend it to anyone hosting a large group. It is clean, well kept and was very comfortable. The view onto the bay was fantastic and provided some great sunsets. If we come back to Galveston we’ll definitely be staying here.
Barbara W. Jun 2020
Beautiful home and great location.
