Guestbook comments from the owner

"We certainly enjoyed the property over the weekend. We checked out at 9:30 on Saturday and contacted Christina per her instructions. The property was fantastic!

We would love to use the property again on short notice two or three day stays when it is available. Please pass our compliments on to the owners for having such a lovely beach home."

A REUNION TO REMEMBER

  • 5 of 5

A college Reunion of 50ish-year old ladies decided to rent a beach house in Galveston as opposed to hotel rooms. We could not have made a better decision than staying at this beach "Oasis". The house was beyond expectations. The views of the beach and the Gulf of Mexico from the family/kitchen room was spectacular. We had to draw straws to see who gets the master suite, the views were stunning. Once outside you are only a few short steps from the beach. We walked on the beach, collected shells, made meals in the well appointed kitchen, and reminisce. We never left the property.

A "Texas slice of Heaven"

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at the beach front property. We always look forward to our annual family vacation. The kids enjoy the beach and the beach club, but most of all, the ocean views are breathtaking. Great family memories. Looking forward to our next stay.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

The ultimate beach vacation begins here at this beachfront home in Pointe West. The house is located just steps from the beach with stunning beach views from every floor. I've stayed here 3 times now and can honestly say you will not be disappointed. Between strolling the beach, relaxing at your private beach house, or soaking up the sun while overlooking the beach, you'll never want to leave! I went here late summer one year and there were fireflies everywhere. It was amazing. The wide, sandy beaches are perfect for strolling, shell-collecting, kite flying and sunbathing. I did all of the above.

Rental Review #202006 at Pointe West

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beach house a few weeks ago for our family. This first day or so we had some rain, then clear and beautiful skies for the rest of the week. Being right on the beach and watching the sun come up with a cup of hot coffee is a great way to start the day. The kids would spend part of their day playing on the beach or going down to the pool at the Beachclub.

The house itself has been very well maintained, you can tell the owner has spent funds to keep the house looking good. A couple other cottages in the neighborhood could use a new paint job - but not this one.

A perfect summer getaway with the family - can't wait until next year.

Had a great time but not a 5 Star.

  • 4 of 5

Date of Stay- 06-05-15 thru 06-09-15.

Stayed here with wife, 3 children and parents. Overall the accommodations were good and what you see here is essentially what you get. We had a great time and this property provides great views, and easy beach access (about a 5 minute walk). The access to the beach club is a nice plus as we took separate trips to the infiniti pool and the other location featuring a lazy river. Our kids (8, 3, and 2) all had a blast! They have Netflix so that was a nice perk as we watched a few movies while kiddos napped. House was clean and furniture is nice. Beds were SUPER comfy!!!

We did have a few negatives to point out.

1.- While trying to brew coffee the first morning there was a hole in the coffee pot. It wasn't a huge issue as we used a glass measuring cup to replace it.

2.- A few amenities are not provided such as shampoo and laundry detergent. We knew that going into this rental so we brought our own shampoo but in my opinion you shouldn't advertise a property as "5 star luxury" when simple things like this aren't provided. We made a separate trip to a convenient store to get detergent. For the rent that they get, it seems that providing this would be simple and it would only add to the warmth of the stay.

3. The stairs are not only steep but they are leaning a bit. This makes it pretty dicey to climb, especially for small children. They should be repaired to fix the lean. Just be cautious when going up or down.

4. The sink drain in the room on the southwest corner drains very slow and needs to be unclogged.

5. Here is the biggest negative we had and if we weren't as easy going as we are it would probably have been enough to give a really bad review. On day 2 of our stay a smoke alarm was beeping very loudly. I called the property manager and she said she couldn't get anyone out to fix it so she just told me to unplug it. I unplugged it that day and much to our dismay it started beeping loudly again in the middle of the night waking all of the adults up. On top of that, at separate times the same night, the smoke alarms in 2 other bedrooms started chirping. Sleep was awful that night and I ended up pulling all alarms and placing them in the outside storage. When I called the property manager the next day to request someone take a look she never returned my call which was very disappointing.

So overall we had a great time but it's certainly not "5 star luxury".
