About Delynn

We grew up going to the beach in Alabama, Florida and Texas so we decided to buy this beach house and create our own family memories when we had children. Our wish is that it can be used to make family memories for you also!

Delynn purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Delynn chose Texas Gulf Coast

Pointe West, in our opinion, is the best family resort on the island. The location, amenities and environment create a perfect place for families to enjoy themselves without all of the noise, traffic and congestion of the Seawall and city. It's fun to drive into Galveston and enjoy the events but it great to drive to Pointe West and get away from it all and enjoy nature and the beautiful beaches on the west end. Fishing is also great next to Pointe West and easily accessible from the San Luis Pass, beach and bays surrounding the area.

What makes this cottage unique

Our house is one of the largest floor plans at Pointe West in the cottage area. It is great for families and has lots of room for parking in front of the house. Everyone can retreat to their own room and bath and TV for some down time and privacy if needed. The house has two balconies that are great for sitting out and enjoying some sunshine!

Great spot and lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay in what I would call a real home away from home! Beautifully appointed and very comfortable with all of the creature comforts you seek while you're away! A quick walk to a very clean and quiet beach was a twice a day ritual! You can catch a bit of sunrise and total sunset from this house!

Simply lovely!

Great Beach House and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We took our 3 grown kids, son in law, and grandson and had plenty of room and privacy for everyone. Pointe West is a wonderful development more secluded than anything closer to town so the beaches are more pristine and less crowded.

Christmas in Galveston!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I so loved staying at Halloran House in Galveston! It's beautiful and is absolutely perfect for a family with grown children to spend time. The house had everything we needed - from linens to a kitchen stocked with all needed for baking and preparing meals. The 4 bedrooms with 4 baths offered us comfort and privacy. The location was out of the mainstream of busy Galveston proper, which was quite pleasant. We loved the decks that overlooked the Gulf and grounds of Pointe West. The short distance to the beach worked out so nicely for walks or longer play in the sand. Someone met up upon arrival, oriented us about the facility, the complex, and Galveston. This was all quite helpful and was a nice welcoming committee of one! The water was too cold to swim when we visited, but my family took advantage of the hot tub at the Beach Club. Tre and Clem, the Beach Club managers, were delightfully wanting to please. We participated in a marshmallow roast our first night in Galveston that Clem hosted, enjoying the event so much that we had a bonfire and cook out on our own at one of the three fire pits the last night we stayed. We were very taken with Galveston...the beaches were plentiful and impressive, even in December. The downtown area was interesting, the Christmas light display enjoyable, and we loved Moody Mansion. The Halloran House in Galveston was a great place to spend the holidays...and I feel certain it would be a wonderful place to visit any time of the year!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family. Everything we needed was there. We were within walking distance of the beach a short drive to the 2 amazing pools. The Pointe West Beach community was everything I dreamed it was. Everything was very clean and we had a wonderful time. Thank you!

What a fabulous house!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a great vacation in this terrific home! We loved the location as the porches face the east and look straight down and across one of the lagoons. All but one of our kids came and all 4 of the grandchildren were there. The beach, which is without a doubt the very best in all of west beach,was a short walk or an even shorter drive to the dune walk-over. There are lots of beach toys in the storage room downstairs as well as a couple of intertubes which are perfect for the lazy river pool. Speaking of pools, the infinity edge pool at the club house is beautiful but the lazy river pool is the best. It is not huge but there is palm tree shade, lots of chairs and chaise lounges (never all taken) and tables. We took picnic lunches or snacks with us and that pool was a delightful way to cool down after time at the beach!

The house itself is absolutely great! When my boys were growing up, we rented beach houses all over Sea Isle and Tarramar. Some were better than others but most had uncomfortable or extremely uncomfortable living room furniture. One house we always liked had living room furniture that was so uncomfortable we hated sitting in it. The furniture in this home is very, very nice. The coffee table has 4 little ottomen chairs that pull out which was perfect for the grandkiddos or for adults to prop up their tired feet.The couches are very comfy and one pulls out into a queensize sleeper. The dining room table will seat 10 if you squeeze every one in! The beds are, frankly, as nice as you would have in your own home. One of my sons has a temperpedic and he was dreading missing it. He said their bed was every bit as comfortable as their "gucci" one at home. The porches are very large. The one off the living area has a nice gas grill, two tables and lots of chairs. We loved the white rockers the most! The porch off the master also has lots of seating. The master and master bath are extremely nice-almost too nice for the beach!! There is also a lot of seating under the beach house on the patio area. The shower down there even has hot water! I did a lot of cooking for the "crew" and this kitchen is the best equipped that we have ever stayed in. There are tvs in every bedroom as well as the living area so everyone could chill out in different places and watch what they wanted.

There are a lot of home rentals to choose from in Pointe West but this one has to be one of the best. We will definitely recommend it to all
