Guestbook comments from the owner
Timo,

Just wanted to thank you for keeping "The Good Life" in great condition! We absolutely love "The Green House" as my kids call it. We had a perfect stay. By the way, thanks for upgrading the furniture in the guest room to a king size bed. Perfect for our group of 2 couples and 4 kids! Don't change a thing! We will be back next year! The only tiny complaint I had was that the maid service showed up at the door at 10 am when we had an 11 am checkout time. They were obviously confused about the times but it was a little stressful to us for a moment thinking we were wrong on the checkout time. Definitely no biggie, it was just the only thing that wasn't perfect (except for the seaweed invasion of course!)

Thanks again!

Initially intended to be our weekend house our jobs took us to a different state. We decided to share our memories with the beautiful Pointe West resort and our beach house with our guests and hope you enjoy your stay at 'The Good Life'.

You'll have water views from every window in the house and enjoy the fabulous weather on Galveston island. The wide, private beaches are just a few steps away. The beach club can easily be reached walking using the hike trail (15 minutes) or by car (2 minutes). You'll enjoy owner parking privileges (covered, with an elevator to access the pool area). In the evening you can enjoy the warm breeze while using the provided charcoal BBQ on the patio together with a beer or dine at one of the 2 restaurants at the beach club. There are several restaurants close by or you can enjoy a huge variety of dining options in Galveston, go to the movies or enjoy a show at the Grand Opera. For those who like to club there's a vivid nightlife scene in Galveston as well.

We enjoyed your property so much last year that we decided to return this year. Again, the house was perfect. It was clean, well-maintained, and full kitchen appliances, dishes, etc. also, having a washer and dryer was extremely helpful. This is a great property for families.
Recommendations for restaurants, our favorites were Mosquito Cafe and Farley Girls. A trip to Galveston must include La King for great ice cream and candy.

HIGHLY RECCOMEND THIS PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at this cottage. It was clean, well-equipped, and just a short walk away from the beach. We also loved the Point West community, in particular the Beach Club and the bayside pool. The bayside pool is wonderful for young children, there are several shallow areas for play and lots of shade. The pool at the beach club also has a large baby pool and easy acess to the beach. Hope we can return soon!

Owner's Response: Linda, I really appreciate your kind feedback. Our cottage and the beach club is ideal for families with children because it's away from all that Seawall / San Luis Pass traffic, safe and quiet. The beach club provides extra squarefootage of fun for all ages. Thanks again for staying at our cottage, Timo

EVERYTHING WE WANTED IN A VACATION RENTAL AND MORE!

  • 5 of 5
My family of four loved every minute of our long weekend trip. The house was an easy, scenic walk to the beach. The kitchen was fully stocked, and we used the grill every day. My young kids enjoyed the bunk beds and the large selection of DVDs, especially when a thunderstorm kept us inside for a while. My husband and I really liked relaxing on the balcony in the evenings with a beer. We made a couple excursions into town (train museum, drilling rig museum, the strand), but the beach and the property were plenty entertaining. I was highly impressed by the thorough and clear communications from the owner. Will recommend this property and hope to return again soon!

Owner's Response: Wendy, first of all thanks for your great review. We are proud of our house and want our guests to be as comfortable as we are when we stay there ourselves. We've just recently added a collection of books for all ages for our bookworm guests when there are rainy episodes. Thanks again and please come back! Timo

EXCELLENT LOCATION AND ACCOMMODATIONS

  • 5 of 5
What can I say? Our family had never been to Galveston and were a little nervous about it. (We are typically AL/FL coastline and NC/SC coastline people.) We loved it. From the quiet out of the way rest, we sought to the convenience of the beach access....it was wonderful. The house was ideal and if we could have rented it for the whole summer, we would have. Clean and well-stocked. Ease of rental process and all the help Timo offered made our experience fantastic. We will be back!!!

LOVELY WEEKEND GETAWAY

  • 4 of 5
Cottage was as described in the listing, easy access to beach over the dune bridge. We did not go to the club, weather a bit grotty, but we had a nice morning on the beach. The brochure Timo provided was very helpful. Our dog loved the "pond" behind the cottage. He thought the resort canine pool was the best ever! It worked well to get him clean after chasing sand pipers on the beach.
