Galveston Condo Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 1 king, 2 queen, queen sofa bed, sleeps up to 8.
This luxury condo villa is the perfect place for that family vacation. It is located in the 1000 acre Pointe West Resort on the western tip of Galveston Island. Pointe West features the Beach Club which includes an infinity edge pool, hot tub, kiddie pool, cafe, open air bar, fitness facility and game room. Just over the dune from the Beach Club is the powdery golden sand of Pointe West's 3 miles of beach on the Gulf of Mexico. This is real beach not like the tiny man-made beaches down on the Seawall. There is no four lane highway to cross to get to our beach. You're right there. No traffic. No constant auto noise and fumes. Just miles of clean and uncrowded beach with no vehicles on the beach to worry about.
Seaside Retreat is modern and placed into rental service in 2007. Everything is new and of exceptional quality. We have all new stainless steel appliances, granite counters, two master suites (perfect for two families wanting to share) a washer and dryer, dishwasher, 3 Sharp LCD TVs and 2 decks.
Attractions: Galveston is a very historic city that is currently undergoing a development boom. Many of the downtown buildings are being redeveloped and there is also a wave of new hotels and resorts being planned and built for the beach areas. If you haven't been to Galveston for a while, you need to to see what's been happening.
The latest attractions to open are the Schlitterbahn Water Park and the Galveston Pleasure Pier amusement park. Not far from the Schlitterbahn is the Lone Star Flight Museum with many vintage aircraft that are still flyable.
Downtown there are shops and restaurants on the Strand, Galveston's historic main street. Close by you will find the Texas Seaport Museum and the Galveston Railroad Museum.
One of Galveston's main attractions is Moody Gardens. Then children will love it. Nearby is the Colonel Sternwheeler paddle boat which offers short cruises and dining.
Another favorite is the Galveston Island Ferry to the Bolivar Peninsula

Larry Scanlan purchased this condo in 2006
Why Larry Scanlan chose Galveston
We often stayed at vacation rentals over the years and decided that we wanted to try owning one if we could find a quality property with lasting appeal. When we saw Pointe West, we knew this was what we were looking for in a second home and vacation rental property.
What makes this condo unique
Pointe West is away from the hustle but yet near enough that you are close to everything you need. It is relaxing and family oriented. The combination of a beautiful beach and two great pools make this a very special place in Galveston.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Seaside Retreat is the best! This was our third year in a row staying there. The location is great being so close to the beach club and the beach.
