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 Texas Gulf Coast

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 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!

The property was really nice. Well furnished and easily accommodated our group of 8.

Our only complaint is that the oven was broken when we got there. Other than that we had a great time and would definitely consider staying here again!

Owner's Response: I hate that the oven wasn't working. :( I found out it was a small fuse. Fixed this week. Glad you all enjoyed Spring Break. Would love to have you back! Laurie

Another wonderful stay at Villa Fontana

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our third annual stay at the condo and we, again, found ourselves wishing for an extra week! The condo is nicely decorated, always clean, well stocked with dishes, cooking supplies, towels, sheets, DVD's for adults and kids, cleaning stuff, and the list goes on. If you want to grill and prefer charcoal to the George Foreman, there's both to choose from. There are even boogie boards and pool toys to use.

Our kids, both under 7, LOVE staying at the condo and swimming at the beach (which is just a short walk from the building) and lazy river pools. Also, it's far enough from town to be away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to run in for dinner and activities. It's not the beach front row of condos, but we've found that it tends to be a lot quieter than the other buildings with not near as much traffic coming and going. You still have a fantastic view of the ocean and bay to enjoy with your morning coffee and only a few extra steps to the sand.

I can't say enough for how fast and easy communication is with Laurie, from the reservation and payment process to check-in/check-out instructions as well as any questions you may have. She always emails you back very quickly and is available for calls, if necessary.

In summary, I HIGHLY recommend reserving this condo for anyone who may want a nice relaxing, peaceful, restful, fun stay at the beach.

The property and location were absolutely wonderful. We planned a last minute trip for memorial day weekend. Went with my mom, stepdad, my kids and 4 grandboys. Plenty of room, loved the view from balcony. The pool and lazy river was a hit with the kids. With just the right amount of shade and sunshin for the little ones. We will definitely be returning very soon.

Home Sweet Villa Fontana!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Fontana is absolutely one of the greatest places we've visited! Our journey to Galveston this time included our parents, grandmother, and cousin. What a precious memory to see them relaxing and enjoying the view from the balcony! We all had a great time! Everyone was completely comfortable with room for everyone to sleep -- a large table for meals and family game time -- a comfortable, roomy living room and balcony to just sit and relax! We will definitely look to stay here again and definitely referring our friends and family!!!

Home Sweet Villa Fontana - relaxing beach oasis filled with memory-making moments! :)
