Why Clem McNeil chose Galveston

We fell in love with our condo the moment we walked in. We live on our balcony eating most meals and relaxing, seeing and listening to the ocean and watching the seagulls fly by. We love the club and all of the activities and amenities it provides.

What makes this condo unique

I love to cook so you will find the kitchen stocked with everything you need and then some. We provide a wagon in the condo to help you unload your groceries and clothes. We provide another wagon in our cage to load your goodies you want to take to the beach. Once you have visited our unit I bet the next time you come you will only bring your clothes and groceries!

Enjoy and bon appetit!

FOR FAMILIES & LARGE GROUPS - If you need more than one condo in order to accommodate your group this is a PERFECT SPOT! Best of the West has 3 other condos available in this SAME building!

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

The staff was wonderful and the condo was perfect for our group. Everything was clean and comfy when we arrived and the staff took extra time to tour the co do with us and show us where all the nearby points of interest were. Our time was spent relaxing on the beach that was very well maintained or by the pool with our little ones. It's worth the drive!!

Beautiful Galveston destination

  • 5 of 5

A group of ladies stayed here for a weekend of R & R. The unit is perfect! I have stayed in other VRBO's before but this one is by far the best! The management team on site is there to greet you and assist with any issues that arose during our visit. The house is completely stocked with everything you could need with the exception of your groceries and beverage of choice. Plenty of spices, paper products, etc. provided so no need to over-pack. The unit has a very large deck that faces the Gulf and a patio that overlooks the Bay to capture the beautiful sunset. I have never thought of Galveston as a "pretty beach" but this portion of the beach is clean and well maintained. In the late afternoons or evenings, you can enjoy the hot tub and the pool and let the Beach Club restaurant provide your dinner and beverages! Absolutely recommend for families and/or friends! Its on the 3rd floor (with the first floor being covered parking garage) and there's an elevator to help with loading and unloading! When they say "Best of the West", they mean it.

Perfect Galveston Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We chose this based on other reviews that were all very positive. While I was hesitant since its further away from restaurants and tourism sites, it was SO worth it. I've never thought of Galveston beach being great....but now my opinion is different. This beach was so clean and well maintained! Our unit was near the boardwalk to cross over to the beach or to access the pool. I've stayed at quite a few VRBO units and I will say this unit provided everything....spices, soaps, detergent, coffee, plenty of paper products...backpack style beach chairs and boogie boards. And even two bicycles ... The furniture, furnishings, and amenities were top notch and not the typical thread bare at other vacation rentals. Their management team (Best of the West) on site was quick to respond to any inquiries and assist with checking in, etc. We enjoyed dining one night with food poolside with service by the restaurant at the Beach Club. We did not miss Galveston main stream one bit... We just chose to stop there on our arrival and departure for dining at Benno's. If I go on another Galveston trip, I will stay here again!

Wonderful Golf Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in the Sandcastle condo and playing 2 days of golf at Moody Gardens Golf Course! The condo was perfect for 3 couples since it has 3 king sized beds and 3 baths! We love Pointe West and have been here every year since it opened and plan to return again. The Sandcastle condo is one of the nicest condos . . . beautifully furnished and on the beach side! Thanks Clem for the warm welcome!

Spring break 2014

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful experience here! Not only is it a beautiful home, it is very well equiped with almost anything you would need during your stay and Clem is extremely helpful and personable that you felt comfortable asking anything. Me and my husband came here with five kids, four of them teenagers and everyone loved it! It is also nice being so close to the beach. Made for nice walks at night.
