Why Timo chose Texas Gulf Coast

Initially intended to be our weekend house our jobs took us to a different state. We decided to share our memories with the beautiful Pointe West resort and our beach house with our guests and hope you enjoy your stay at 'The Good Life'.

What makes this cottage unique

You'll have water views from every window in the house and enjoy the fabulous weather on Galveston island. The wide, private beaches are just a few steps away. The beach club can easily be reached walking using the hike trail (15 minutes) or by car (2 minutes). You'll enjoy owner parking privileges (covered, with an elevator to access the pool area). In the evening you can enjoy the warm breeze while using the provided charcoal BBQ on the patio together with a beer or dine at one of the 2 restaurants at the beach club. There are several restaurants close by or you can enjoy a huge variety of dining options in Galveston, go to the movies or enjoy a show at the Grand Opera. For those who like to club there's a vivid nightlife scene in Galveston as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Just wanted to thank you for keeping "The Good Life" in great condition! We absolutely love "The Green House" as my kids call it. We had a perfect stay. By the way, thanks for upgrading the furniture in the guest room to a king size bed. Perfect for our group of 2 couples and 4 kids! Don't change a thing! We will be back next year! The only tiny complaint I had was that the maid service showed up at the door at 10 am when we had an 11 am checkout time. They were obviously confused about the times but it was a little stressful to us for a moment thinking we were wrong on the checkout time. Definitely no biggie, it was just the only thing that wasn't perfect (except for the seaweed invasion of course!)

Thanks again!

We have stayed at numerous beach houses in Galveston and this was our favorite by far! It was so clean and cared for! The kitchen had everything we needed and more, the beds were comfortable and we had the best time! Thank you, we will definitely be coming back!

Everything and so much more!

  • 5 of 5

We had decided spring of 2015 it was time to experience the big winter migration. We choose Galveston Texas. The cottages at Pointe West. From the moment we arrived, it was everything and more. Very clean accommodation/amenities. Enjoyed walks on the beach and around the beautiful well groomed neighborhood. From the cottage you can enjoy lovely views of the Gulf. It was a great time watching grandchildren playing on the beach and picking shells. Timo response to question(s) or needs was always quick and very friendly. Found Galveston to be very friendly and considerate place to visit. Many things to see and do during your stay. Enjoyed Katie's fish market. Very Very good fresh seafood. We had a perfectly wonderful vacation. Definitely we plan to return!

Perfect!! We will be back

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a spring break trip to Pointe West with a few high school kiddos and it was great! The House was exactly as described and was perfect for us. It was clean, spacious, well maintained and the location in the neighborhood and proximity to the beach was optimal. Plenty of fresh towels were waiting for us..even beach towels! The downstairs closet was full of lightweight chairs and fun supplies for the beach that was just a very short walk over the bridge.

Timo could not have been a better host! Everything was clearly laid out for us in our pre check in emails and he was accessible by phone as well. It was clear that he was excited for us to enjoy his home and have a comfortable stay.

The beach club was where we and our teens hung out quite a bit. My daughter brought a couple of friends and my sons buddy drove in from Houston for one night and the staff at the beach club made checking them in super easy. The pool was huge but a little chilly for March so the giant hot tub was a treat for them. There are lots of families with young kids there but there is a ton of deck space to spread out and relax. The pizza from the snack bar was amazing and the service was good. I recommend the gift shop there for unique finds! In the evenings my husband I Would either head over to the sunset pool with a glass of wine (on the Bay side) or walk along the beach and every night at dark we would sit on the walk over bridge and watch the fireflies! What a treat.

Because pointe west property is very spread out one of the best decisions we made was renting a golf cart for our kids to roam around in and travel between the two pools. There are a couple of different rental companies but I recommend K6 rentals. Unlike the other rental golf carts that had so much advertising plastered all over them, K6 carts are nondescript, solid colors and they had many sizes to choose from. They deliver the cart right to your door and pick it up as well. We found their prices to be a little less than other companies as well.

All in all I have no complaints at all and we can't wait to go back later this summer!

Thank you Timo!!

Beautiful home! Great vacation place for families

  • 5 of 5

The home was lovely. Clean and tastefully decorated. We had plenty of towels and blankets. We were given plenty of helpful information regarding the home and the area in our rental packet as well.

We loved the picnic area for hosting a family get together outside with kids. Access to the beach was easy and close.

We would most certainly return and recommend this home to anyone looking for a fun getaway!

Fabulous stay at the "Good Life "

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our 10 day stay at the cottage. Great clean accomodation in nice neighbourhood, lovely sea views and practically on the beach! Timo ( owner) very quick to respond to any queries and friendly. Only shame was the weather - rain, rain and more rain! Will be back ��
