About the property

The Sometimes House, Sunrise to Sunset View at this beachside cottage

Both cozy and quaint "Sometimes House" is the ideal vacation retreat. Just steps from the beach, this home features stunning views of the bay and gulf. The up-to-date kitchen features stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, and plenty of space for cooking and meal preparation. Have a quick snack at the breakfast bar, or formal meal at the inside table, with sweeping views of the gulf. The picnic table located on the lower patio is the perfect spot to take a break from the midday sun and enjoy a light lunch, while still savoring the outside air. On the balcony, kick back and relax on one of the lounge chairs or have a snack at the table, while listening to the drum of the waves. Let the sound of the ocean breeze lull you to sleep in one of the three bedrooms. The master bedroom boasts a king sized bed, large en-suite bathroom with his and her sinks, oversized tub, and access out to the balcony. The additional two bedrooms are quite spacious and feature queen sized beds. To accommodate additional guests, the living room has a pull out queen bed and futon. This home is pet friendly.

Worst property management company I have ever dealt with

  • 1 of 5

The home was nice but was no one prepared it for our arrival. It was obvious no one checked on the house after Hurricane Harvey. When we arrived all of the patio furniture was turned upside down and the cushions were still inside. It was very heavy iron furniture that we didn't want to deal with. Even worse was upstairs in the master bedroom. All of the upstairs balcony furniture had been brought inside and was all over the master bedroom. We had no choice but to carry all of it back outside. The living room window sills were filthy. You could see where water must have blown in from the storm and this was not cleaned. The trash can was dented up and absolutely filthy. The freezer side had a leak of something brown and disgusting. The management company (Coastal Waves Vacations) sent over maids the next day to clean up the fridge and set up the furniture. They only cleaned the fridge and left without setting up the furniture. The Coastal Waves Vacations manager never once offered an apology. They could have cared less about any of it. If I was the homeowner I would not be happy with their service. We have stayed at Pointe West many times and this is the only bad experience we have had. Oh one more thing - there was a live roach in the master bathroom.

Pictures Accurate and Overall Good

  • 3 of 5

Really nice Decor. Check in and out was easy. Communications were at the right frequency and very helpful. Area is nice and plenty to do and places to eat out if wanted.

Every setting on the washing machine produces "hot water" and the Master tub upstairs close to the washing machine doesn't have any hot water or volume of water. I'm sure something easy to fix and I'll let the rental company know.

Master and extra bedroom are on the 3rd level. Bunk room is on the 2nd level. Some of the houses are set up different with a regular bedroom on the 2nd level which would have been more helpful for us.

Thanks... we did enjoy our stay. (mainly rated a 3 star due to the issues with the hot water on the 3rd level and the bunk room being downstairs)

Beautiful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Came to Pointe West Resort with a bunch of my friends and my boyfriend picked this place after looking at several different houses. Was a little surprised to see it call a Cottage and I was really looking forward to my stay! And the stay itself definitely did not disappoint. It has really nice beach-themed furniture, wick chairs and all that, so I really loved the theme of the cottage. It was also only a one minute walk to the beach, so it was super convenient for all of us, since our main purpose was to remain active and water sports all day. And it was surprisingly quiet for it's close proximity to the beach too! Really thoroughly enjoyed my stay here.

Well painted and great, relaxing rental space

  • 5 of 5

Property was clean and well maintained by our hosts who were very considerate of our needs. They were easy to get ahold of when we had a problem (not that there was more than one and it was totally minor.) We had an excellent time and will definitely be returning.
