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.

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

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!

The house was great for the five of us. Perfectly located near a quiet beach. Fully stocked kitchen. And we were surprised that there was all the beach equipment downstairs. We didn't go out to eat or join the beach club because we enjoyed it so much there. We highly recommend it for anyone going to the beach in the Houston-Galveston area. We plan to return.

Beautiful beach home and very responsive owner.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at The Good Life was really terrific!

The weather could have been better, however, it proved to us that the owner was quite responsive.

The dvd player at the property wasn't working, so we contacted Timo, and he had the property manager deliver a new one within 24 hours!

Also, the well-equipped kitchen was quite easy to navigate. (You need to get a spatula or 2 for bowl clearing!)

Rooms are spacious, very clean, and comfy. Access to the beach is also very easy.

Game closet was handy, though many pieces missing prevented us from playing much.

Our reason for not giving 5 stars are a few minor details: The discomfort at the dining table,(no backs for seating, the bench legs stick out too far, and all 5 adults stubbed toes at some time during our week), a few leaks in windows during the rain, no extra pillow cases for bed linens, no kitchen cleaning cloths or scrubby. We had to purchase that. Lastly, the deck furniture cushions need more 'cushion'.

TRULY minor things. This property is a great place to spend any time with family or friends, and we hope to have a chance to return soon!

Perfect property!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a weekend at this beautiful beach cottage. The cottage sleeps 10, and has plenty of space. It is decorated tastefully and has a cozy feel to it. The kitchen is well equipped, with plenty of plates, utensils, pots and pans, etc.. Which was great!!

The cottage has two decks for relaxing and just hanging out. The board walk to the beach is right at the front door. The beach itself is nice and very peaceful. The outdoor shower was a great way to rinse of after the beach.

There are two options if you want to use a pool or hot tub. Just drive less than 1 mile further down the road and you will have two very nice club facilities.

The location of Point West is about 20 plus miles from Galveston. So make sure you have everything with you, food, drinks, beach stuff unless you want to drive all the way back to Galveston. We were prepared!

Overall our party, 7 girls and 3 moms, had a fantastic stay at this beautiful cottage and would highly recommend it to friends and family.
