About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

This property and the Pointe West Beach Club were not damaged by Hurricane Harvey. The Beach Villa is a modern and comfortable condo located adjacent to the Beach Club and main dune walkover at the Pointe West Resort. There is a beautiful view of the beach and Gulf of Mexico from the balcony. The condo’s location, in the heart of the Pointe West Resort, allows for convenient access to the Beach Club, pool, and beach. The beach is stunning, expansive, regularly groomed, and closed to vehicle traffic - making it the perfect spot to enjoy the surf or build sand castles with your family. The Beach Club is elevated and has an infinity edge pool which overlooks the beach and Gulf of Mexico. In addition to the pool, the club has a heated Jacuzzi, children’s wading pool, fitness center, game room, and picnic area with gas grills. The restaurant, bar, and gift shop are open seasonally. There are more than 3 miles of beach and 6 miles of biking trails at the Resort. A fire pit, which is perfect for building a camp fire and toasting marshmallows, is located near the condo. The owners personally manage the Beach Villa and are highly committed to the quality of each guest’s experience. The condo is maintained in top condition.

The Sunset pool on the bay side of the resort includes a lazy river surrounded by swaying palm trees. The pool and Jacuzzi provide a relaxing atmosphere with views of the sunset on the bay. There is also a lanai with a grill. Bring binoculars to watch beautiful birds and wildlife

About Alan or Joan Wilde

As owners and managers, we live North of Houston with our three children. My husband (Alan) and I own the Villa and use it as our weekend getaway for our family. We make it available for rental by families and couples when we're not using it.

Alan or Joan Wilde purchased this condo in 2006

Why Alan or Joan Wilde chose Galveston

The Villa is in excellent condition and is very comfortable! It is located right next door to the Beach Club and main dune walkover making it super convenient to access the pool, Jacuzzi, exercise room, bar, restaurant and beach.

What makes this condo unique

The beach is regularly cleaned and is closed off to cars. The Villa is located on the beach side, not the bay side, of the resort.

Great Vacation

  • 4 of 5

This was our first trip to Galveston. Pointe West was a great destination. The pools were great and the beach was easy to get to. We were happy with the condo although it could use some minor maintenance and a deep cleaning. The internet service was spotty which made working remotely difficult. We would probably stay here again.

Owner's Response: We've worked with AT&T to improve the reliability of the internet service. We request that guests let us know of issues right away so we can involve AT&T tech support. Deep cleanings are conducted on a rolling basis throughout the year.

Great Condo Away from busy areas

  • 5 of 5

Great condo stocked with all the amenities. The resort pool area is gorgeous. Owner gave great packet of information for arrival. Condo had plenty of space for the 4 of us for a family getaway. This resort is all the way at the end of the island, so make sure you stop on the way in to pickup groceries and snacks for the trip as the closest grocery store is almost 30 minutes away. There is a new Dollar General that just opened up that is much closer also. Overall great stay! Highly recommended!

The Pointe West Resort is a lovely place for families. We enjoyed the peaceful environment and the beautiful amenities. We would definitely return for a second stay. The owners were very helpful and always willing to answer our questions. We highly recommend the Pointe West!

Not clean inside

  • 2 of 5

Floors dirty, trash under beds and dressers-hair left in tub-we found some dead roaches on the floor as well as a couple of live ones. Inside had a musty smell. The guy with Christine commented that it was musty to him also,probably cause the air cond. was off and he turned it on before they left. We later bought some scented candles to help freshen up the place. As we were crossing the bridge(I45) into Galveston, we called the contact person per our instructions. She told us we were still over an hour away and to call her back as we got closer. I knew we were not that far from the sea wall because I have been there many times.We tried to call back, time was after 3pm, around 61st and sea wall -about 20 minutes out,, could not get her on the phone so we left her a message. Did not hear from her so we went on to the beach club and they got us our bands. Since we had not heard back from Christine, my wife called her back-got her this time and she kinda jumped my wife on the phone saying I told you to call me back. My wife told her we did but no answer from her so we left a message. We told her we were there, had already got our bands from the club and asked her how long it would be. She went on and text my wife the code to get in and showed up shortly. We noticed the beds had not been changed to a king size bed as we had requested( we were also told by you that this would be done) and Christine told us she never got that message. She did tell us she would check with you and get it done but not that day. It was done sometime the next day while we were gone- found them changed in the late afternoon. Summary---not at all impressed with the condition of the rooms, we left it a lot cleaner when we left than what we got when we arrived. We basically had to clean the place when we got there-we bought some Lysol and cleaning spray(tub) before we felt comfortable in using it-swept the floors.Not impressed with your contact person- kinda left the impression that we were more of a bother by the way she was on the phone with my wife.The beach club was great, the beach was fantastic.

Owner's Response: The condo did not meet our standards at the time of check-in and we apologized for the inconvenience. We sent our on-site staff back to the condo to rectify the situation. The cleaning crew initially did a rushed job given time pressures. We have instructed the crew to make quality their top priority at all times. Regarding pest control, we made improvements to the treatment regime and use the best available methods. The condo is treated regularly. The cause of the musty odor may have been a minor water leak over the ceiling near the second bedroom. The leak was repaired straight away. The condo has a high quality air conditioning system that was installed in 2017.

Great place for a quick getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our six-year-old grandson loved the beach and the pool. We loved being able to go easily from one to the other, and we especially loved the food/bar service at the pool. The condo had everything we needed, and it was close enough to the pool to take our leftover pizza from pool to fridge. It was great to have the use of the beach chairs and sand toys.
