About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Count the Views is a tastefully decorated 4 bedroom /4 bath cottage in the beautiful and luxurious Pointe West resort located on the west end of Galveston island. Our cottage is back on the rental market with fresh interior paint throughout. This family friendly house is directly across from the beach walkover. With less than 150 feet away, it’s even closer than some of the beachfront homes! This home has 2 large private balconies with fabulous views of the beach and two community lagoons. It is located on a corner lot so there is extra lawn space to enjoy outdoor activities with your family.

This home has 3 king size beds and one room with 2 bunk beds. Linens are included with rental.

The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped and features granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. In addition to the basics, the kitchen has many extras such as large serving platters, food processor, large griddle, crock pot and waffle iron.

There are 5 televisions, 2 DVD players, and cable. The home also features a washer/dryer, high speed internet access, grill and outdoor cabana shower. The ground floor has two picnic tables... a great place to relax and watch the kids play. It's also a convenient place to sit while unloading and cleaning off after the beach.

Both balconies have fantastic views of the beach, lagoons, large palm trees, and the beautiful Pointe West community. The lower balcony has a large iron table and chairs. The upper balcony is off the master bedroom. The house faces east so the balconies are shaded in the evening. It’s a perfect place to enjoy the breeze and listen to the sound of the waves!

Guests are 150 feet away form beautifully groomed and wide beaches. In addition, guests may enjoy all the amenities Pointe West resort has to offer (daily use fee applies - $10/pp). Amenities include large infinity edge pool, hot tub, lazy river pool, children’s pool, game room, fitness facility, organized resort activities, poolside bar and restaurant.

Wonderful vacation time with all the comforts of home. Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year to stay in this beautiful home. This year our teenagers are old enough to drive so they had fun fishing down at San Luis Pass. The youngest is 14 and thoroughly enjoyed the gaming system in the room he slept in. As for the adults, we love the crossover to the beach being so close to this house. It's right across the street and just a short walk to the beach. Sitting out on the balconies are a delight and the view of the ocean is beautiful. I can't say enough good things about this home. We had such a good time. Sam and Jim, thank you again for letting us share your lovely home. Your property managers Christine and Al are delightful folks to deal with too. See you next year!

Great time had by ALL

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house to relax and unwind near the beach. We had a big group including my father, two of my older children and their kids. It couldn't have worked out better. The house is very nice and had everything we need to cook and relax. The beach is VERY close and just a short walk away. Everyone commented how wonderful everything turned out.

Our family's best vacation at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Counting the Views beach house was beautifully decorated, spacious and inviting. We had everything we needed when we chose to "eat at home." The bedrooms were perfect in size and the beds very comfortable. It was a wonderful place to relax!

The beach was easy walking distance with a nice walkway - good for these grandparents.

Our older grandsons (ages 7-13) had never spent time at the beach. We, along with their parents, and then the last day with my son's family played in the ocean, took walks along the shore, collected shells, built sand castles and moats, were buried in sand, and flew kites!

We will recommend this beach house to others that have 10 or less people.

Great house and beautiful resort

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 8 confortably enjoyed this beautiful home. Pointe West is the nicest area of Galveston Island in our opinion. The amenities -The Beach Club, lazy river pool, work out facilities, outdoor bar - are all top notch. One item of note - the location is on the far side of the island so the drive to and from downtown Galveston is a hike. We had a wonderful time and will be back.

Owner's Response: Hi Tim, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I am so glad to hear you were all comfortable and enjoyed the house and resort. We love Pointe West and it's largely due to it's remote location and beautiful well groomed beaches. It's in Galveston but truly doesn't have the same feel as the seawall area. I look forward to having you and your family again! Take care! Sam
