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 had a wonderful stay with our family. The beach access was fantastic, and the storage closet was stocked full of beach toys and a beach wagon. I only wish we could have stayed longer. It was a long night weekend trip for us, but it was not long enough.

Fun times with our family

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay & the house was clean. Had trouble with the front door lock the first night but emailed Timo & he fixed it the next morning. The kitchen pots & pans, & cookie sheets were all very old & used. A handle on a skillet fell off in my hand. Really need new ones. Only gave us one tiny kitchen towel. Didn't advertise they have 2 pack n plays in the closet. We brought ours. All in all it was fine, but next time I will stay on the beach so we won't have to walk with little kids.

Loved every bit of our time at this cute beach house! Would recommend this house for your next getaway. The house was comfortable and a short walk to the clean white sandy beach. Will be returning soon! Thank you :)

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were perfect for a family getaway. The separation of the bedrooms was perfect for our privacy as well as our children and two young grandchildren. The kitchen/living space was large enough to hosts a Mother's Day celebration with extended family. The kitchen had all we needed to prepare breakfasts and the grill downstairs gave us the chance to eat a few meals at home. We enjoyed the short walk to the beach as well as the pool and lazy river. We are already looking to staying here again. Thank you for providing an excellent place to relax and enjoy..
