NOTE: If you do not see your dates available, please free to message or call us. We have two other units in the same building that may be available that come with similar amenities.
You will be absolutely amazed how beautiful the view is from this condo. Our building is the closest you can get to the water at Pointe West. You will want to spend hours and hours just sitting on the balcony taking in the gorgeous view, watching birds, etc... Guests appreciate that the bay is only 12-18 inches deep. They can turn their kids loose with the kayaks and sit on the balcony and watch them worry-free. Fishermen love wading out right in front of the condo.
- Enjoy Incredible Sunsets and Bird Watching right from the balcony.
- Fish, Crab, Kayak, and Paddle Board right in front of our building.
- Walk or Bicycle, or take the golf cart to the Pointe West Beach Club or Lazy River Pool .
- Enjoy miles of gorgeous, clean, private beach. Pointe West by far has the best beach on the Island. If you have been to Galveston before, you won’t believe your eyes when you see how nice our beach is.
- If you have to work, you’ll love that we have free Wi-Fi, a desk in one of the bedrooms, and a printer that works with smart phone and tablets.
- The Pointe West Beach Club has a beautiful infinity edge pool, hot tub, kids pool, cabanas, grills, gift shop, internet usage (free wifi), workout facility, lockers & game room. The Pointe West Beach Club charges $10 per person at the entrance desk as guest registration fee for the duration of your stay during peak season. There is no charge for guest registration from mid September to the end of February.
Our condo is not part of a large rental pool we manage it ourselves. We try to keep everything extremely well stocked and in very good condition, as we want it to be when we stay there. Thru trial and error we have found a great cleaning crew, so you should find the condo to be very, very clean.
We are very family friendly and we let you use all our “stuff” for free. We have 4 kayaks, 2 bicycles, a stand-up paddle board, fishing poles, crabbing nets, beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, binoculars, loads of board games, DVDs, computer monitor & printer, pack-n-play, high-chair, etc.. We even have a golf cart for guests who book 3 or more consecutive nights. Most guests find all the extras we provide to be an incredible value! Renting all the stuff that we provide for free would cost about $500/day thru a rental agency.
We also have a very well equipped kitchen. If you’ve rented a VRBO type property before, you’ll be amazed at how well stocked our kitchen is. We often host Thanksgiving here for 18, so we have a lot of everything, and all kinds of cookware. If you forget to bring it, don’t worry, we probably have it!
Our check-in procedure is very easy. For optimum security, each guest gets unique door code that only works for the duration of their stay. Guests can change the 10 digit door code assigned to them to a 4 digit code of their choice that’s easy to remember. No one is given keys. Guests don’t have to drive anywhere to pick-up keys and there’s no chance that a previous guest or workman is running around with a key to your door.

** NOTE: The Beach Club elevator is currently out of service and a new elevator is expected to be installed by June 2018. In order to accommodate guests with mobility issues during this time there is a new wheel chair ramp at the beach club. Also there is a Lazy River Pool is at ground level.
** The elevator in our building is working great, but we only have one elevator for this building so we cannot guarantee that it will be working on the date of your arrival - 99.5% it will, but we can't guarantee it. This is a first floor unit - the garage is floor zero. If you have a member of your party who would be unable to handle one flight of stairs in the event of an emergency or short-term outage, you should probably look for a hotel where they have several elevators. If you choose to book our condo anyway, and the elevator fails, by default we will not process a refund or allow cancellation. As of 2/23/2018 guess now have the option of purchasing an "elevator protection policy". If the elevator is critical to your stay, please see our Rental Agreement for details.

About Lisa Arthur
We are semi-retired now and split our time between Houston and Galveston, so we are normally just a phone call away if one of our guests needs help.
Lisa Arthur purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Lisa Arthur chose Galveston Island
We purchased this condo because we wanted a quick & quiet escape from work that was also fun enough so that our college age children would enjoy it. It's a really easy commute from Houston and our kids love bringing their college friends here - there's so much for them to do. We love relaxing and watching birds from the balcony. Our kids love taking their friends to the beach club and lazy river pool. Best of both worlds for our family. (NOTE - the 3 bedroom was such a hit, that we later purchased a 2 bedroom in the same building. Together, they are perfect for large family gatherings, like Thanksgiving. See VRBO 561225 to get rates for both units.)

Clean, organized efficient , great views - perfect for our one year old grandson and his parents !
We were so pleasantly surprised by the views and the order and cleanliness in This lovely condo! It was near the bay for fishing and crabbing and sunset views and a golf cart away from the beach club and epic pools, beach and surf ! We will return!
Great place and location
We loved the apartment as soon as we came inside. Very spacious and fully equipped. Plates, cups, all cooking gadgets, good assortment of cooking pans and Pyrex containers (multiple sizes). Also had foil , paper towels, dishwasher and laundry soap. You don’t need to bring anything except for the food you need during your stay. The view is spectacular and there are birds everywhere.
The beach club was also nice and so close!. We were there for 4 nights and had the golf car which is great if you have older kids.
We went with a baby and a toddler and there was always something to do with them and the apartment was really suitable for our needs.
We will definitely go back again!
Relaxing condo for vacationing
The property was in pristine condition upon our arrival. Excellent cleaning service. The condo was furnished with just about everything one needs with the exception of food/drink. The view of the bay is wonderful and you are just a short golf cart ride to the Gulf beach parking area. You can also drive your vehicle onto the beach, which made unloading chairs, etc. much easier. We did use the kayaks and paddle board and had so much fun. We visited Galveston to stuff ourselves with seafood, so didn't really use the kitchen much. We did have a slight problem with the door lock, but once in touch with the Lisa, it was resolved. I would highly recommend the condo and if we ever get back down that way, would certainly rent it again.
We had an amazing time at Arthur's Beach and Bay!
We had an amazing time at Arthur's Beach and Bay I! This condo is gorgeous and has everything you could possibly think of. We spent hours out on the patio watching birds and fisherman and the beautiful sunset every night. We slept like babies on the comfy beds. Enjoyed the Beach Club pool and restaurant very much (try the frys!) It was such a bonus to have the golf cart. My 18 and 13 year olds had nightly runs to the pool where they had so much fun. Lisa and Ken are so nice and accommodating. They even took my son kayaking on the bay one afternoon with their daughters and dog which he loved. If you are looking for a condo at Point Beach, stop looking and book this one. You wont be sorry. We absolutely loved it and hope to be back again soon!
Beautiful property and extremely inviting!
Property was absolutely stunning! We arrived to a condo which was remarkably clean and modern inside. The amenities far exceeded our expectations. The opportunities to partake in outdoor activities also far exceeded our expectations. The owner was by far, the best that we have worked with through this process. I would highly recommend this property to anyone and or their family looking to stay.
We loved staying here. We had a great time. Even though it was early March....and the weather was not as warm as we hoped...we were still able to enjoy the amenities that came with our stay. Lisa, the owner is extremely easy to get a hold of if you need her...and checks in on you during your stay. If your looking for a nice quiet place to relax and unwind....this is the place to do it.
Beautiful Beaches! Fabulous location for Bird Watching, Fishing, Kayaking, Crabbing, Sunset Watching, etc... Photographer's Dream! You can go into Galveston for countless amusements, including theater, shopping, museums, etc.. but probably won't want to once you experience how relaxing and beautiful it is just to sit on the balcony and soak it all in at the condo.
Our condo the closest condo to the water in Pointe West. We are right on the bay, so you can walk out the front door and you are seconds away from fishing or kayaking. Pointe West has two pools, the Beach Club infinity pool and the bay side Lazy River pool and we are half-way between the two. It's very nice to walk here. We have low traffic streets and lots of trails for bicycle, pedestrians and golf carts. We are a 7 minute walk to the Pointe West Beach Club, 7 minute walk to the bay side lazy river pool, and 5 minute walk to the beach. There is parking area at each pool, so if you don't like walking you can go by car, golf cart, or bicycle.
Guests will enjoy free use of 2 kayaks, 2 stand-up paddle boards, 4 bicycles, etc... We also have a golf cart that guests can use free of charge if they book at least 3 nights with us and the golf cart is working (we can't guarantee it's availability so we don't charge for it)
If you are only booking 2 nights and you still want a golf cart or you want a larger golf cart (ours is a 4 passenger electric cart) then you can contact one of the Island's rental agencies where our guests receive a 25% discount on golf cart rentals and a 10% discount on the other items that they rent.
Our cleaning service offers a "concierge services". you can book with them directly for grocery delivery, baby sitting, pet sitting, holiday meal catering, and even to a massage therapist visit the property.
We are on the complete opposite end of the Island from the Cruise Terminals, bars and restaurants about 26 miles, or 35-40 minutes depending on traffic and about 20-25 minutes away from amusements like Moody Gardens, Water Slides, Miniature Golf, etc...
For boaters, you can launch small boats (kayaks, paddle board, canoe) right in front of the condo. There is a public boat dock across the bridge at San Luis Pass. There's a private Marina 6 miles to the east in Sea Isle.
For Deep Sea Fishing, there are charters that take off from Galveston and Surfside. We are about half-way between the two locations and can make some recommendations. Email us for further details.
