Guestbook comments from the owner
Great place to stay!, July 31, 2010

By Becca (Austin, TX USA)

Wonderful condo....very nicely furnished, lots of room, loved the large patio with great views of the ocean. Easy access to the beach and the private beach (no cars) made it especially nice. Owner was very accommodating and easy to work with. We would definitely like to stay here again next year!

A native Texan who grew up going to the Galveston shore all my life. The relaxing sights and sounds of the Gulf Coast have been therapeutic and invigorating.

Laurie Fontana purchased this condo in 2008

These attributes of the Island are what drew me to purchase a home here. I decided to offer my home to you in hopes you too would find pleasure and benefit.

Villa Fontana is our home by the Sea, and offered and managed to be yours for a moment in time. Pointe West is Galveston's most tranquil and esteemed resort. The options for solitude or activity are both encapsulated in our location.

PERFECT LOCATION AND BEYOND HELPFUL OWNERS

  • 5 of 5
We could not have been more thrilled with our stay!! The condo was absolutely perfect and we loved the view and easy access to the beach. While we had the best time at Pointe West, I want to say how grateful I am for the owners kindness and helpful attitude. I left several things in the condo and she went above and beyond to help me get my items mailed back to me. This type of customer service makes all the difference in the world...and we are SURE to come back. THANK YOU!!!!!!

BUSY FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent the Memorial Day weekend at Villa Fontana. At first we thought we were way to far away from Galveston, but soon decided we were in heaven!!!! The condo is peaceful and beautifully decorated. The beach was nice and clean and not so crowded. My son-in-law fished and caught fish each time he went out. He was thrilled!! There is something to do for all ages, whether you choose to go into Galveston or stay close to home.....fun, fun, fun................on the down side only 2 very small problems........insufficient parking and the outside shower was broken.......minor........take your family and enjoy ...... it is well worth being out of town.........

WONDERFUL VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
This villa was perfect for our family of six. Very well-maintained, spacious, nicely decorated and had everything we needed. The views of the ocean were wonderful. The pool/spa area was also very nice with a lovely gift shop. The beaches were very clean and private and the owner was wonderful to work with and very accomodating. We found it to be a very relaxing, peaceful location and would definitely stay here again!!

THE PLACE TO STAY IN GALVESTON

  • 5 of 5
Our family has been staying in VRBO rentals since the company's early days, and we found our experience with this owner and property to be so positive that I feel compelled to write my first ever review. The condo is just as pictured (if anything, it's better, as there is now an upholstered easy chair in the family room, in addition to the leather sofa and love seat); has high quality furnishings, appliances, linens, and decor; and is extremely well equipped. We were there for four days over Thanksgiving, and I cooked all of our meals, some of which were fairly elaborate, yet I had very little need of the kitchen wares I schlepped from home. I had some concerns that the condo might be a little small for a group of six that included grandparents and teenagers, but the well-furnished balcony became a comfortable, second family room, and we never felt cramped. Pointe West Resort is being well maintained, and the private, groomed beach (NO seaweed or cars!) is the best stretch of sand I've ever seen on Galveston Island. We walked it many times, wearing off our Thanksgiving pie, and I was willing to do so barefooted, which I've never done before on a Texas beach. All of my dealings with Laurie were pleasant and straight forward. There was no question too small that she didn't answer, and she was always quick to respond. Thanks, Laurie. It was a pleasure!

WONDERFUL WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
Dear Laurie & Fontana Family, I just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful weekend at your condo. It was the perfect place for the 3 of us and my little grandson Tristan (Now I'm 4!) fell in love with his home away from home. :) The beds were comfy as well as the living room sofas. :) The patio was wonderful to sit and sun in the morning with a cup of coffee. The lazy river pool was perfect for Tristan and the beach very clean. Loved all the neat quotes and pretty decor. :) We visited the Train museum in Galveston that Saturday and watched a huge train come in from Houston - Tristan was in train heaven :) We look forward to coming back again in the future. :) best wishes, RobinA
