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.

Nice House, Nice Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice time at "The Good Life, Too". I have stayed on Galveston Island many times before but never this close to San Luis Pass. The beach seemed much cleaner at this location than beaches closer to town and the absence of vehicles made things more pleasant. My kids, ages 7 and 8 had a great time collecting shells. When the beach got to hot, we went to the Beach Club and the Lazy River. The pool at the Beach Club is beautiful and we enjoyed having an alternative to the beach. I considered going into Galveston but never did because we were having so much fun around the house.

The house was well stocked with linens and all the pots and pans you would need. There is a large collection of child appropriate DVDs which were fun and the owner supplied a bunch of beach toys and chairs. I would recommend this house to anyone, however, it's particularly well suited to families with kids.

Super nice house!

We so enjoyed ourselves! It was a nice get away after Hurricane Harvey. Loved the easy access to the beach then we rented a golf cart to spend the afternoon at the pool. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us, we will certainly come again!

No AC mid way into vacation

  • 1 of 5

Let me start by saying that the owner's responsiveness prior to rental was exceptional. The communication couldn't have been better. The house was nice and well stocked. 2 days into our stay, the AC stopped working and we woke up to a steam filled house. We immediately contacted Timo and did the best problem solving possible- per his direction. We decided to change our plans and go to Moody Gardens rather than the beach for immediate access to AC. During that excursion, TIMO informed us the AC guy came out and was charged by our 13 year old Golden Retriever. He called 5 other companies and none would come out on a Sunday. We confirmed there were many other companies that would have come out. Our only option would be to stay another day with no AC (in TX summer!) or find another place and he would reimburse up to $100 per night. We had 5 people and would love to know what the $100 could get us. With no other option, we packed up as he informed us we had to be out that evening if we wanted our money back. Upon returning from the trip, I contacted Timo who disputed our claim saying it was only a breaker (we checked that as well and told him that during our trouble shooting) and also informed me I would be responsible for the AC service fee! Additionally, his property manager came out the day of (didn't come inside) and told us this was the 3rd time this had happened. This house only has 1 unit- whereas others have 2. It was clear the property is ill equipped to handle a problem. The A/C broke and we had to deal with it the best we could without the right support from the owner. The issue caused us to have to vacate and was a major burden on our family and a vacation ruined. I gave Timo several days and attempts to make this right am disappointed to post a negative review. Also, when we returned to the house to pack up, we discovered the AC guy left the door wide open. I truly wish this would have turned out to be a pleasurable experience.

Very nice cottage in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at "The Good Life, Too"! It was very comfortable for 6 adults and a 15 month old. They provided us with a pack n play for the baby, which was perfect! The kitchen was fully equipped and we enjoyed cooking many meals! The cable TV had just basic channels but that didn't really matter because we didn't watch much TV anyway. It was nice to have the beach/pool towels and beach supplies to use - sand toys, skim boards (not boogie boards), badminton set, Frisbees, bag chairs (not beach chairs), beach cart and ice chest on wheels. We set up our own pop up cover that we left at the beach each evening, which was so convenient, so we didn't use the umbrellas & anchors. Beach access was just across the street! The beachside club and the bayside club were very nice! It was well worth the $10 per person for the week.

The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because the sheets on the master kind bed kept coming off (were not deep pocket) and they had lots of pilling so they were a little scratchy. Also, the almost full glass door in the master bedroom and double doors in the dining/living area did not have any window coverings. Lights were shining in all night in the master and the the room was bright as soon as the sun came up. Also, even though it faced the lake, it was a little intimidating walking around in the room after dark with the lights on.

I would definitely recommend this property!
