About Tom Lochry

My wife and I moved to Dallas from the midwest and needed a place to get out of the city. This has been our family's vacation home since we built it in 2005. We have enjoyed introducing our grandchildren and their friends to the beach and the rich history of Galveston Island. The above photo was taken on the tall ship Elissa that is docked in Galveston. We do not use a property manager snd enjoy talking to potential guests to make sure the property is a good fit.

Tom Lochry purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Tom Lochry chose United States

Our family likes beach vacations and the feel of the sand between our toes. We do not like extended air or car travel. Pointe West Resort on the West End of Galveston Island fit our travel time and pocketbook requirements. We wanted a "kid magnet" for parents, children, grandchildren, miniature schnauzers and guests to make memories at the beach. We named the house Anne Mare after our two daughters.

What makes this cottage unique

A beach side location with no sea wall means you have to build on stilts, but in return you get a real beach with lots of birding, fishing, cycling and kayaking opportunities. Fantastic sun rises and sun sets. Hear the surf from the balcony. Enjoy the stars and the lighted fountains at night! Hike, bike or cart around the 1000 acre resort. Cook out under the house. Go surf fishing or crabbing. A beach resort community with the feel of a neighborhood.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Great Time In Galveston"



We had the best time! Place smelled so clean & pristine! Shelling the beaches! We walked @ night & saw rise of harvest moon, planets & stars. Beach & area so safe @ night... So unlike our June trip on Seawall.... Please share our comments online w/ VRBO....

Wish it were my second home!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our extended stay at this beach cottage!!!

It is very charming and cozy. It has tasteful beach decor in every room. The master bed is super comfy!

Being the off season it was very private and peaceful. The beach is in walking distance at the end of the street.

We loved having our morning coffee on the back balcony that over looked the water and fountains.

We spent both Thanksgiving and Christmas here and it was wonderful. We were lucky enough to be here when it actually snowed in Galveston which is truly rare!

It was hard to pack up and leave after being here over 2 months.

The owners were wonderful and made sure we had everything we needed throughout our stay. It is also pet friendly so our two schnauzers enjoyed their stay here as well. Lots of memories were made here!!!

Owner's Response: Holidays at the beach are always special, even in the off season. The privacy and natural beauty of Pointe West and the West End of the Island are why we chose to build there in 2006.

Everything was excellent and as advertised. Easy walk to very un-crowded clean beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. House was clean, up to date and well maintained. Perfect size for my wife and me with three teenagers. Fairly secluded, almost private section of beach. Club was convenient, especially with the optional golf cart although we ended up just going to the beach the whole time so we didn’t really use the club or cart. Owners friendly and responeded quickly through the website, although we didn’t have any problems that we needed them for.

Pointe West

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house; very well taken care of. Owners are responsive with any questions we had. It worked great for our family of 4. It was fun having the golf cart available, cart paths everywhere you need to go in this development. If you are looking for place to stay close to the beach, this is it.

Only small critique would be that the kitchen could use more cooking pans.

Great House at Pointe West

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at Ann Marie. Pointe West has a lot to offer especially if you have little ones. This house was located closer to the Beach Club than the Lazy River but the golf cart made the drives fun with the little kids. The beds were very comfortable & the master b.r. on one side of house away from the other 2 b.r. is a good layout. One t.v. In the living room. Nice large table seats many for eating. We brought pack-n-plays for the young ones. Would have given 5 stars but kitchen is small & needs updating as far as amenities. Overall a fun few days at the beach.

Perfect beach home!!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a 5 day stay at the Anne Marie !! It is a perfect beach house! Everything described and SO much more! You literally only have to take your clothes and food. Everything else is provided! I highly recommend using access to the golf cart to get around the area! The access to Pointe West beach club is an added bonus! If you are looking for a place out of town to relax and enjoy the beach this is your place!

Beautiful beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house. We had trouble getting the code to work when we first arrived late in the evening, but thanks to the wonders of technology Tom was immediately able to determine there was a problem and then help us remotely. The house is clean and lovely and comfortable, fully equipped for all our needs. The walk to the beach is fairly short, and we had the huge, beautiful beach all to ourselves which was surprising to us. The clubhouse pool is quite a bit further, and we never ended up making use of it due to timing issues and less-than-ideal weather. We also never did find the lazy river that is supposed to be part of this resort, but again, due to timing and weather, we didn't pursue that very aggressively. There's a lovely little balcony to enjoy your morning cuppa joe on, which overlooks a small lake full of wildlife. The only downside was that I didn't realize just how long the island was, and we were at the opposite end from the town of Galveston. This meant we had about a 35-40 minute drive to get to pretty much anything other than a few very small stores and restaurants. We can definitely recommend Mario's Pizza, which isn't too far from the house. The highlight of the trip, especially for our young daughter, was the harbor tour to see dolphins - and we saw plenty of them! We also enjoyed the beautiful Rainforest pyramid at Moody Gardens. If you're looking for a really nice home-away-from home and want to make sure the homeowner is friendly and easy to work with, I'd recommend giving this house a try - we would stay here again in a heartbeat if we ever make it back to Galveston!
