About Amie McCarver

With 8 years of experience in property management, Bay Front Escape ensures quality customer services with professional & friendly Rental Agent Representatives.

Amie McCarver purchased this villa in 2009

Why Amie McCarver chose Texas Gulf Coast

After looking long & hard for a vacation rental in Galveston, we discovered that many of the other homes were dated or decorated with older furniture & decor. We could not find anything that looked comfortable or clean, therefore we set out to purchase our own. We have traveled to many places all over the world & wanted to provide a modern yet comfortable environment with the luxuries of a high end hotel. From the linens to the amenities, we wanted to give renters exactly what we would desire in a vacation rental property. We make it a priority to consistently replace the linens and update the furniture. We are also add new DVDs for renter's convenience as well as dinnerware & cookware. Ultimately, we hope you enjoy Bay Front Escape as much as we enjoyed decorating it!

What makes this villa unique

At Bay Front Escape, there is great fishing and crabbing. It is located on the thinnest part of the island, so you can walk out the front door to enjoy the bay or walk along the trails to get to Galveston beach. Unlike most beach house rentals, this property allows full access to the Pointe West Beach Club where you can enjoy the infinity pool, restaurant, open air bar and lounge as well as a fitness center and game room. Being at Bay Front Escape is like being at a resort away from home. All the amenities of a resort with a home large enough for 2 families or several couples!

Great House and Great Location

  • 4 of 5

I was a little apprehensive about vacationing in Galveston because of word of mouth and other popular beaches a few hours away. However, I booked this Bayfront Home during August, and I was extremely pleased with the house and the island.

In addition, I wasn't sure this particular property would be nice because there weren't many recent reviews, but the house turned out to be wonderful! Both the property manager and the owner were very nice and informative.

The house was clean and had a few spots that were being treated/worked on (nothing bad). Our refundable deposit was also given back to us very promptly!

Our group was 8 adults and 4 kids and we were very comfortable. The kids loved the pool table, ping pong table, foosball table, and fishing the stock pond directly out the back door! The house had plenty of pots, pans, utensils, and other such things. The location is on the west end of Galveston (about 20 minutes), but very much worth the drive to get to a nice quiet, well kept area.

You could walk to the beach (about 1 mile) without crossing the main road for those wanting to get exercise. This was accessible through a cart tunnel near the property. The club house was very close, as well as the lazy river. We went to both the club house pool and the lazy river area on separate days for a few hours, but spent most of our time on the beach.

All in all, I would highly recommend the Bayfront Escape to anyone looking for a great house in a great location! I am already looking forward to booking our trip at this same property next year.

Wonderful Getaway & Family Friendly Vacation Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Most homes we looked at seemed outdated. I was pleasantly surprised at how nicely decorated this home was. I was able to sleep 3 families comfortably and we could have fit more kids if we wanted to. I was also impressed with the level of customer service. Every question was answered either via email or phone call within a very reasonable time frame. The biggest bang for your buck is having access to the Beach Club. It's like a mini resort. Totally worth it if you are thinking about a more private beach area. I cannot wait to book this place again during the warmer months! I can totally see the kids having fun at the Beach Club. I was informed by the Beach Club employee that there are a lot more activities and events during warmer months. We still had a blase even though it was December though! Highly recommend this place!

Great weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome weekend with my husband and two young kids (6,7 year old) and our friend and her daughter (8). Place was amazing, clean, fully stocked so we could cook and have snacks at home. Very modern furniture. We walked to the beach every day and the area is amazing. Its an easy drive into town or there are several small grocery stores for last minute items!

Highly recommended for kids and for Seniors, as well!

Great Family Vacation AGAIN

  • 5 of 5

My family and I regularly go to Galveston after the new year for a quick getaway before school starts again! We have stayed at Bay Front Escape the last 2 years and it has been awesome! Plenty of games at the house with the pool table and foosball table, and my sisters and I bake ridiculous amount of cookies! This is such a nice place to unwind! We are working out dates to return for Spring Break this year too!
