About Timo

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,Too'.

Timo purchased this cottage in 2013

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

We had a really great time during our stay in Galveston. It had been decades since I last visited the island, but I’m telling everyone how great the place was.

My extended family of 3 generations rented 2 homes from Timo and we were very pleased with the beach, the neighborhood and the accommodations.

We want to go back again next year, 2015.

Lovely Long Fall Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 and 2 small dogs thoroughly enjoyed our long 4-day weekend. Coordination with the owners was so easy and all responses were quick and very detailed. The house is ideally located with good bay views off the back porch and partial gulf views from some windows and the underneath patio. The house is located near one of the walk-over bridges to the beach and you arrive quickly to a clean and sparsely populated beach. The house was very clean and stocked with everything we needed. Overall, it was a wonderful and relaxing stay.

Great Pointe West vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the Pointe West beach house. The 3 bedrooms and 3 baths was perfect for our family of 6 adults and 3 littles. The kitchen is such a nice size. Loved the large table and comfy sofas in the family room. Having 1 large open space was perfect for us. The home was very clean, well kept and had comfortable furniture. It was great to have a nice TV and wi-fi. One of the best aspects of the location is the beach path right across the street. This made getting to the beach an easy walk! Pointe West is a great family area. Beach is not crowded and the pools, particularly the sunset pool at the condos is perfect for families. It is a little drive to the pool, but less than 5 minutes.

My only suggestion would be some pot-holders, more paper towels and trash bags. Overall a great spot. We hope to come again

beauriful neighborhood and the perfect environment for a vacation with small children.

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Pointe West for three years now and we love it! We have stayed at Timo's properties the last two years and hope to continue to do so. The house was clean and well stocked. We had beautiful views from the balcony and easy access to the beach. Looking forward to our next trip!

Great place to stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean nice accomodations. Many times you look at photos online get to the property and are disappointed. That was not the case here. Pictures didn't do this place justice. Lots of great amenities in the kitchen, games for the whole family. Felt right at home. Definitely would rent again. Great location to the beach as well. Thank you for having us!!!

Great Beach Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a terrific stay at "The Good Life". It certainly FELT like we were living the good life! The house is well-appointed and has a great beach theme throughout. The kitchen is one of the best stocked I've encountered (and I've been renting vacation homes for over 10 years) with nice quality flatware, pot/pans, glassware, etc. Although we only cooked breakfast, it would have been no trouble at all to cook a full lunch/dinner as well. The house has two balconies with views of the community pond and relaxing fountain. It's a great place to catch a sunset. There is a guest closet on the ground level full of beach equipment including kids toys, umbrellas, chairs, etc. The chairs especially came in handy as the sand on the beach is pretty hard. Speaking of the beach, it couldn't be more convenient as it's only a few steps out the front door and across a dune deck. We were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of a few turtles, and several schools of fish while wading in the warm water. I'd recommend at least checking out the club house. We did and ended up spending a few hours enjoying snacks and drinks by the pool. The staff there is more than friendly and went out of their way to make sure everyone was having a nice time. Timo was very responsive throughout the rental process and while we were there, which was great and much appreciated. Next time we are back in town, this is where we will definitely return. Thanks for a great stay!
