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 Galveston Island
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.

Wish it were my second home!!!!
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!!!
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.
Great location and cozy house
This is a fantastic beach get-away home with plenty of amenities. It is a short walk from a clean, quiet beach far from the Galveston crowds. The affiliation with Pointe West brings use of two pools and the restaurant. Great place.
Fantastic property and spring break getaway. Will definitely consider staying here again. No issues whatsoever and the golf cart was the icing on the cake.
Kitchen was just about fully stocked but a larger skillet and couple of large cookie sheets would be beneficial if u plan on cooking a lot.
Had a wonderful time, very clean facility.
Very nice place really enjoyed it.
Great resort community close to beach and great swimming pools. The house was the perfect size.
If you like peace and quiet the end of October is the time to go. Not many folks at the resort or beach. Restaurant and amenities close at the end of the month so be sure to arrive before then.
Fall and spring are our favorite times too. Restaurant hours are limited during winter, but special holiday meals are available.
This is the way to travel with kids. House has 3 comfortable bedrooms and is meticulously kept. Full kitchen and outdoor grill. A short walk to the beach. Neighborhood is nice and peaceful. Felt perfectly comfortable letting the kids (12 and 14) run around on their own. Most relaxing vacation I've had in a while. I would go back again today if I could.
