Lovely weekend getaway

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.

This was a great house for my family of 5! The house is the perfect size and steps away from the beach. We had a blast and will definitely be coming back!

Hi Timo. We had a good time at the cottage. Even though the weather was a little cooler than we had hoped for, we made the best of it!
....
This is the third time we have stayed in a Pointe West cottage, so I like to see that there is an additional discount for returning guests. We really enjoy that area because it’s away from the hustle and bustle of the Seawall and the beaches seem much nicer.

We would love to visit again. We all had such a nice time and did not want to leave. Your cottage was so much more comfortable than a hotel or condo. The privacy and comfort of a house far exceeds that of a hotel/condo.

Nice Getaway

Our family enjoyed staying at the beach house for the week. The house was clean and everything worked as advertised. The walk to the beach was short and the outdoor shower upon returning was a hit for all of us(not to mention keeping sand out of the house). We really enjoyed the large main pool and game area(ping pong was a hit for us). The lazy river was also nice. It had shaded areas where we could lay back, have a cool drink, watch the kids on the river, and then also take a plunge now and then.
The BBQ grill at the house was also a nice touch; it kept the cooking heat outside and provided some tasty burgers! Away from the house we enjoyed Moody Gardens, the ferry, Ft Travis, crabbing, the Strand, the tree sculptures, and eating at both the Original Mexican Restaurant and at Bennos on the seawall.

Greatest Galveston Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 5, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
We just loved the house and all its amenities. When we arrived, everything that we could need was there. The kitchen had all the necessities. The bedrooms and bathrooms were beautiful and most importantly the beds were very comfy. We were supplied plenty of towels and linens for our guests.

The location was awesome...just walking distance to the beach and a great view just before sunset. The beach was clean and quiet....even on a busy day it was great, We just loved that there were beach toys for the kids, and the kids went wild with the nighttime crabbing we were able to do (this is a must if you are there but you will need a big flashlight).

The patio area was a great place to hang out in the morning to enjoy the ambiance. However, bring plenty of mosquito repellent as the little buggers will eat you alive--although that is Texas weather for you.

We also enjoyed the beach club although there was so much for us to do at the beach we did not get to enjoy it as much. But a great plus if you have people in your party who cannot take too much sun.

The owner was very responsive and answered all our questions. The only little glitch we had was the slower internet, but this was a blessing as we were forced to put away our electronics and just enjoy our vacation. There was cable TV and a DVD player and we did fine with that.
We would definitely stay here again!!! Thanks for a great vacation. Rivas-Martinez Family
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your great feedback, Barbara! The information you share is very useful for all guests interested in our property. We do warn our guests to make sure they are equipped for the Texas state bird (mosquito). Despite mosquito control at Pointe West and regular sparaying at our property there will be mosquitos. Thanks for mentioning the internet speed, I will make the switch to a faster connection speed.

We enjoyed our stay and loved the location of the house. The beach was within walking distance and the pool was just a short drive. The house had more than enough room for our family(2 teenage boys and a 3 year old). There were a few maintenance issues, but overall the house was in good condition. The owners were very accommodating and professional. We would recommend this house for a relaxing getaway!

Great beach house!

The green beach house provided a fabulous, comfortable stay! The kitchen was well equipped and everything was clean. It had easy beach access and a great pool available. We look forward to staying there again.
I would definitely recommend the house to families of varying aged children. My young three boys hated to leave!
The owner sent a helpful brochure and called once we were there to check that everything was good.
We ate our dinners in town. Our favorites were Saltwater Grill and Mosquito Cafe. Also. La King Confectionary was perfect for dessert with their ice cream treats and zillions of candy in an old time setting.

My sister and I took all of our kids to the beach for the week. The beach house is very comfortable and clean and had everything we needed. It is very easy to get to the beach and the kids enjoyed some great cousin bonding time. We really enjoyed the Beach Club and the Pina Coladas. I highly recommend this house. Great location! Nice beach--not crowded at all.
