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 Galveston

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was a great get away, it was so relaxing. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. It was nice to have everything you needed at your hands, from a stocked kitchen(pots & dishes), to a full size washer and dryer. Looking forward to our next stay.

Perfect and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

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!

Villa fontana

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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! Laurie

Great Time Every Day!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter, twin 8 year old grandsons and I had a wonderful time! Villa Fontana met all our needs! We headed to Galveston while tropical storm Cindy was in the Gulf, but luckily we enjoyed sun and water time every day! The boys made friends at the pool and the food at the onsite restaurant kept them well nourished. We felt welcome and at home immediately! Will definitely recommend!

Perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

Villa Fontana is a perfect getaway. The owner is very responsive and helpful with everything we needed. The condo was clean and cozy with the kitchen fully stocked with all you need to cook anything you want. We went to the beach club for some pool and bar time and had a great afternoon. Complete poolside service and a great resteraunt menu! A private beach along the resort made our stay so nice and relaxing with no crowded beaches and plenty of space.

I would highly recommend this place for any occasion, whether it is with the full family or just a couples get away!
