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 location was fabulous! It was so tastefully decorated, immaculate and comfortable, with everything our family needed. The view was beautiful, the grounds and beach were clean and wonderful! We would definitely recommend to friends and return here!

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! :)

Perfect location and BEYOND helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more thrilled with our stay!! The condo was absolutely perfect and we loved the view and easy access to the beach. While we had the best time at Pointe West, I want to say how grateful I am for the owners kindness and helpful attitude. I left several things in the condo and she went above and beyond to help me get my items mailed back to me. This type of customer service makes all the difference in the world...and we are SURE to come back. THANK YOU!!!!!!

BUSY FAMILY

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent the Memorial Day weekend at Villa Fontana. At first we thought we were way to far away from Galveston, but soon decided we were in heaven!!!! The condo is peaceful and beautifully decorated. The beach was nice and clean and not so crowded. My son-in-law fished and caught fish each time he went out. He was thrilled!! There is something to do for all ages, whether you choose to go into Galveston or stay close to home.....fun, fun, fun................on the down side only 2 very small problems........insufficient parking and the outside shower was broken.......minor........take your family and enjoy ...... it is well worth being out of town.........
