About Laurie Fontana

A native Texan who grew up going to the Galveston shore all my life. The relaxing sights and sounds of the Gulf Coast have been therapeutic and invigorating.

Laurie Fontana purchased this Condo in 2008

Why Laurie Fontana chose Red Fish Cove

These attributes of the Island are what drew me to purchase a home here. I decided to offer my home to you in hopes you too would find pleasure and benefit.

What makes this Condo unique

Villa Fontana is our home by the Sea, and offered and managed to be yours for a moment in time. Pointe West is Galveston's most tranquil and esteemed resort. The options for solitude or activity are both encapsulated in our location.

                                                              Colleen C.

                                                              I rented this house with my husband and two kids (3yo and 8mo) and my parents. It was the perfect blend of everything we wanted. The condo is clean and well furnished with everything you need. Laurie even had a packnplay for me so I didn't have to lug that down. The rooms are big and bathrooms are great.The resort main facility and pool is a short walk with a beautiful pool. The lanai faces the water and is a perfect place for coffee and happy hour. The lazy river pool on the other side was perfect for my young kiddos.

                                                              Pro tip - if you are planning this trip, be prepared to make long treks into town for meals, grocery shop sufficiently and cook, or suffer through the service / menu at the main facility...

                                                              Would love to have you all back!

                                                              Very nice property - well maintained

                                                              Jamie W.

                                                              Great place to share some family time. The weather was grey but we had fun anyway! Excellent location in the resort - a short walk from the resort center and all its activity - or step the opposite direction and enjoy a more peaceful beach setting.

                                                              The property was well maintained and the owner responsive. I would stay again and again!

                                                              The condo is always clean, tidy and set up as if you were visiting a friends home. It makes you feel warm, welcome and like you are part of the family!

                                                              I love that the beach access is so close and the beach club amenities are perfect for whatever you are looking for. Whether it be a family pool/beach day or date night.

                                                              My family and I love this place and come back every year.

                                                              Condo was extremely well furnished. Very nicely decorated. Had absolutely everything we needed except a pot holder. The mosquitos in the garage and hallways were awful. The cond itself has a great front porch with a biew of the ocean, but is a long way from the actual ocean access. If you could provide a wagon in your locked cage for people to haul stuff back & forth it would be great. The Beach Club has a nice pool, a good bar, and a marginal restaurant. The condo was perfect for handicap access while the beach club was not. Their elevator is down and will be for at least another year. The first time you go, you cannot use the handicap ramp as it is locked up tight and you need to go to the office to get a code. If you are handicap, you cannot get there. Was challenging to say the least.

                                                              UGGG...I just hate that about the elevator. I was hoping you would have better access to the beach since the ADA access is one of the nice things about PW. So thankful for your thoughts, plan on taking to the resort staff to address. This can be made much better for the guest.

                                                              Welcome to the Gulf coast in summer. Some of those mosquito are like small birds....eekkkk! Again I hate that your stay was not as pleasant as I hoped.

                                                              Thank you for your review and kind words about our home. Hope to have you all down again maybe when elevators are up and running and not mosquito season!

                                                              We had a wonderful time at this beautiful Villa! The time flew by so quickly with great weather and plenty of sun and water fun! It was our best Galveston, pool and beach experience. In the past we selected beachfront house rentals which were nice, but lacking the pool/beach club experience which was the most fun for the young grandsons! The boys didn't just want to stay another day, they suggested we just move there permanently! The condo was immaculate and met all our needs. The onsite restaurant was a plus as well. Hoping to do it again next year!
