Great location and beautiful home

We brought our two adult children and spouses and grandchild.........absolutely perfect for together time and apart time.... Each family with own bedroom and bathroom were important for us.... House is gorgeous , roomy and nice.... Loved the breezy balconies...... Drive to galveston is long - definitely need to build up cmunity with more businesses for restaurants but overall excellent!!

Thank you Alan!

This house was perfect for our girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and comfortable with plenty of room to cook and sit down to eat together inside or outside on the balcony. The private beach was just a couple of minutes away and was clean and quiet. We were very happy with our stay and intend to come back next year!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The home is lovely. We had five women staying for a pampering weekend for a pregnant young lady. We had our coffee on the main deck in the mornings and our adult beverages (not the momma-to-be) on the same deck in the evenings. Never had a problem with mosquitoes!! A bathroom for each bedroom is wonderful!! No standing in line. We don't rent often but when we do again, it will be this house!!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

On a road trip to TX, we found this listing at the last minute. We called Alan who stated he could have the property ready by Monday at noon. Amazing! This was our absolute favorite rental by far! The neighborhood was peaceful, we were steps from the beach, and the house was all we hoped for and more! This beautiful home had no flaws! It was squeaky clean and beautifully decorated. We had a wonderfully relaxing stay! Thank you, Alan!

Perfect Christmas Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from an excellent Christmas vacation in Pointe West. This house is wonderful. Spacious and well maintained. It is a very short walk to the beach - which is perfect-- and is in a very nice and quiet neighborhood. We were very pleased with this rental from start to finish. The owner is great to work with and responds quickly when contacted.
