Beautiful and spacious 4/4 ocean side retreat with resort amenities
Welcome to Monkey Sea Monkey Dune at Pointe West – a charming ocean side retreat perfect for escaping the trials and tribulations of the daily grind, reconnecting with family and friends, and creating wonderful new memories that will last a lifetime. Spend your days exploring the gorgeous private beach where you can play to your heart’s content with no worries about vehicle traffic. Beach access via a dune walkover is just steps away and the beach is sure to be pristine as it is regularly manicured.
If you happen to feel like a change of pace then head over to one of two beautiful pools on the property. The Pointe West Beach Club offers a gorgeous infinity edge pool overlooking the ocean, a hot tub, a children's pool, a seasonal restaurant and bar, a fitness room, a gift shop, and a game room for the kids. The Sunset Pool offers a pool with a lazy river, a hot tub, a fire pit, and outdoor grills. As an added bonus you can bring your own refreshments to the Sunset Pool.
Finally, head back to Monkey Sea Monkey Dune as the sun begins to set and enjoy the spectacular sunset views gathered with friends and family on one of the two expansive Galveston Bay facing balconies.
The fully equipped kitchen will please the resident chef and offers all of the cookware, utensils, and spices that you will require to prepare an amazing meal. A full array of stainless steel appliances are provided including a French door refrigerator with ice maker, range, microwave oven, and a dishwasher to help you keep things sparkling clean during your stay. A breakfast bar with stools is the perfect place to share an informal meal with family and friends and a large dining room table is also available for the times when your entire group would like to enjoy a meal together.
The main living area is bathed in sunshine from a wall of Galveston Bay facing windows. An expansive deck overlooks a beautiful pond and water feature with views of Galveston Bay in the distance. After a fabulous day at the beach, the living area offers the ideal spot for your whole group to unwind and relax. You can hang out on the cozy leather sectional couch while you surf cable channels on the flat screen television or you can stream your favorite movie. You can also connect to the complementary Wi-Fi to check in on the real world back home if you so desire. Meanwhile, the private washer/dryer allows you to quickly and efficiently take care of the day's laundry.
When it's time to turn in after a busy day, Monkey Sea Monkey Dune offers four luxurious bedrooms equipped with comfortable beds and plush bedding and will easily accommodate up to ten guests and two small dogs with ease (a non-refundable nightly pet fee applies). Four full baths means that there is no waiting in line in the morning or after a long day at the beach. All four bedrooms also feature flat screen televisions with Direct TV.
The master suite features a king size bed, and a beautiful en suite bathroom with a jetted garden tub, a walk-in shower, and a large closet. The master suite also features a large private Galveston Bay facing deck which is the perfect place to enjoy some romantic quiet time later in the evening.

The third bedroom also features a queen bed and an en suite bathroom. The fourth bedroom is set up especially for the younger ones in your group and features two sets of comfy bunk beds.

Delightful stay at Monkey Sea Monkey Dune
We really enjoyed our stay at Monkey Sea Monkey Dune! The beach house was clean and the chairs, sofa and beds were very comfy. We had fun gathering around the large table to play games, do crafts and eat together.
VERY nice house.
Everything about our stay was wonderful. The house was perfect for our needs and it was very easy to feel “at home”. The beach was beautiful-the nicest stretch on Galveston by far. We were even able to take advantage of the swimming pool-in late December!
This was a wonderful place to stay. Fit our family perfectly! The owners were very responsive and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. We had a difficult day leading up to our stay. Having my dads internment just before heading down. The owners had a cake for us when we arrived with a very sweet note. We will definitely stay here again.
Fantastic Place to Stay!
This home was everything we hoped it to be and more. It was a bit out of Galveston, which was great because it was quiet and we almost always had the beach to ourselves. The house had wonderful extra things for kids, things for the beach (umbrellas, chairs, wagon to help bring things). The house was fully stocked with everything you could ever want. It was a great place and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in staying near Galveston.
Clean, up dated, inviting, relaxing, kid friendly, adult friendly :)
Fantastic week celebrating my 40th borth day and my sister-in-law's 30th!! We had 4 adults and 4 kiddos under 6. Monkey sea, monkey dune was perfect for us! Kids got to play on the beach, we went surf fishing, and ate like kings! The house slept us all comfortably. Short walk to beach, but the house was stocked with everything g we needed! Didn't go to the pool as that was a lil too far, but we didn't even miss it! Home was clean and inviting! Since our family lives in Houston we will most definitely be going back! Thank you so very much for a great vaca!!
At Home at the Beach
We have rented in Pointe West previously but but this was the first time to rent from the Hoffman's and they are excellent hosts. The property is first-rate for every reason: fully-provisioned, clean, comfortable beds, lots of space, plenty of all the things you need to play at the beach - everything you'd want if you had your own place at the beach. Derek and Malia are attentive hosts and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. We are already looking for an excuse to come back!
