About Timo

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,Too'.

Timo purchased this cottage in 2013

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a really great time during our stay in Galveston. It had been decades since I last visited the island, but I’m telling everyone how great the place was.

My extended family of 3 generations rented 2 homes from Timo and we were very pleased with the beach, the neighborhood and the accommodations.

We want to go back again next year, 2015.

Good times!

  • 5 of 5

Sadly we didn't get to enjoy all the house had to offer since it rained the whole time!!!! The balconies were set up great to hang out on, but were soaking wet. House lay out and set up were perfect. Know that the "cottages" are not walking distance to the Beach Club and Lazy River pool. They are an easy drive. We looked at all places that Pointe West had to offer and we all agreed the Cottages were the best even without the Beach Club and lazy river in the actual neighborhood. We would love to rent again!!!!

Fantastic vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on February 1 to escape our cold winters in Canada. From the moment we walked in the front door we couldn't be more pleased with our "home" for the month! Clean and comfortable. Very well stocked in the kitchen and the bathrooms had some starter supplies as well.

The beds were comfortable and the bedrooms clean. Having 3 bathrooms for the 3 bedrooms was great. No one had to share, we each had our own full bathroom. The master bathroom is huge with a walk in closet.

Lots of beach supplies available for our use.

The beach is directly across the street and is great for shelling! (Huge shells on the beach after we had some windy days).

The only complaint I have is that the resort pool is not heated. As we were there in February.... We could not use the pool as it was really cold. Lots of amenities at the clubhouse and 2 pools and hot tubs for guests use.

There are lots of stairs, so for anyone with mobility issues, this property might not work.

Beautiful, quiet area down the island from Galveston.

I would recommend this home and we will stay here again in the future!

A great stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Timo's beach cottage and like the first time everything was perfect. The house was very clean and the accommodations were first rate. The kids spent hours (days) on the beach finding all kinds of sea creatures, playing in the waves and having relaxed fun. The sand dune walkover bridge to beach is right across the from the house, and it only takes about 3 minutes in all to walk to the uncrowded sandy beach that extends for as far as one can see in either direction. There are no vehicles allowed on the beach which makes for better safety and fewer people. The location at the far West end of the island is ideal for being close to nature, far from the hustle and bustle of downtown Galveston.

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was the perfect place for our first family trip to the beach. Access to the beach was a few steps away but the ability to swim in the pool at the Beach Club a mile down the road was great. The cottage had everything we needed to feel at home. The cottage is located at the end of the island so it is quiet and less busy and about 30 minutes away from the popular Seawall area with all of the restaurants and attractions. The owner was extremely responsive and great to work with. We would definitely recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: Jay, thank you very much for your great feedback. I apologize again for the maintenance that needed attention during your stay and appreciate your cooperation and understanding. I'm also glad you enjoyed the beach club which is a great addition to our cottage. Please come back! Thanks, Timo

Girls Scout Beach Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Mr. Timo's beach house. My troop of 6 girls completely enjoyed the beach club. Although the beach had a lot of seaweed, we had a great time. Mr. Timo is so nice. We had a small issue with the patio door and he responded right away. The house is beautiful, great location, plenty of room and close to the beach. We would love to come back again and stay. What an amazing place. Thanks you Mr. Timo for sharing your lovely beach home with our troop. We are most grateful.

Owner's Response: Hello Lori, thanks so much for the praise. Pointe West has a private beach cleaning service that worked day and night to get rid of all the seaweed we had. The beaches at Pointe West by far look the best compared to others on the island but Mother Nature can't be beat. We are glad you enjoyed your trip anyway. Thanks, Timo

loved it!

Great home about thirty minutes from the main "touristy" area of Galveston. Place was beautiful and community has great club house pool. Perfect for a quiet getaway to relax!
