About the property

Galveston Beachside in Pointe West - sleeps 10-14!

Welcome to Las Brisas in lovely Pointe West.

*** Photos don't yet reflect our beautiful new hard flooring downstairs and plush carpet upstairs, brand new appliances, new super-power air conditioner to keep you cool, King-sized memory foam bed in Master bedroom, Blackout drapes in all bedrooms and smart TVs throughout. This house just keeps getting better! ***

You will enjoy the proximity of the beach and having views of the ocean from the side of the balcony and views of the bay and the pond out back. Water views everywhere! The covered deck is a great location to enjoy the sunsets. This is the perfect place to share time with extended family, reconnect with friends and renew your soul.

Galveston Island has something for everyone.

For the young and the young at heart check out the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier - ride the roller coaster or the merry-go-round. Right next door at Murdoch's you can shop for island souvenirs or watch the surf and relax in the rocking chairs in the covered breezeway.

For the nature lover, check out Moody Gardens - we love the aquarium and the rainforest pyramids - you won't believe you are in Texas! If you want another water adventure, Schlitterbahn water park is a 30 minute drive from the house. Don't miss the Historic District and the Strand for shopping and local eateries like MOD Coffee House and The Mosquito Cafe. If you want to take in some history, check out the tall ship Elissa and the Ocean Star Off Shore Drilling Rig and Museum. Pointe West has a fabulous beach and there's so much to explore in Galveston - come rediscover the island!

As our guest at Las Brisas (an owner managed property) you will have easy access to the house via your personal lock code - which means no coordinating schedules to pick up/drop off keys and no danger of losing keys at the beach!

This beach house is a 3 bedroom cottage in the Pointe West beachfront community. Access to the beach is via a community boardwalk 3 houses away. Enjoy the balmy breezes and the sound of the sea while relaxing in the hammock in the shaded patio or on Adirondack chairs on the covered deck. Large master bedroom has a beautiful view of the pond and bay, king-size memory foam bed and futon, gorgeous bathroom and a private deck for watching the sunset. Guest room is on the first floor, with a large window with Gulf views and an adjacent bathroom. King and Queen bedrooms and main living have flat screen SmartTV's and cable. Bunk room has two twin over full bunk beds, private bath, a window with Gulf views and a SmartTV (no cable).

Sip your coffee in the morning on the back deck and watch local birds at the pond - Cranes, Cormorants, and Roseate Spoonbills just to name a few.

The Pointe West pools are open year round, but only the hot tubs are heated. Beginning March 1, 2017 guests over 3 years old will be charged a $10 fee/per person, up to 10 people to use the beach club. This fee covers the full week stay. Guest over the 10 person limit must pay for a $25 day pass. Please visit for additional details and photos. THE POINTE restaurant at the beach club is OPEN during high season and limited days during the rest of the year serving delicious fare!

About Lauren Applegate

Texas A&M Aggie grads Doug and Lauren with two little girls who love the beach! We live a couple of hours away in The Woodlands, TX, and make sure to sneak away as often as possible to enjoy Las Brisas with our family and friends.

Lauren Applegate purchased this house in 2016

Why Lauren Applegate chose Galveston

After an extended family reunion in a Galveston we knew we wanted the opportunity to recreate the special moments in at our own property. We fell in love with Las Brisas at first sight! The back decks provide the perfect opportunity to relax and contemplate, while the ground floor provides great space for larger groups to grill and socialize. The well-maintained beach is just steps away and is private with no vehicles allowed. The dunes are a nesting ground for endangered sea turtles and the bird watching opportunities cannot be beat.

What makes this house unique

Las Brisas has it all! Walk across the boardwalk to enjoy the beach, return to an outdoor shower and fire pit perfect for making evening s'mores. Fully equipped with beach toys, beach towels, and all kitchen amenities. Additionally, Pointe West Beach Club offers swimming pools, heated hot tubs, crabbing pier, lazy river, gift shop and restaurant for a minimal per-stay per-person fee of just $10 up to a maximum of 10 people. Children 2 & under free.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We traveled from Northern Virginia to Las Brisas, Pointe West - it was our first time and we loved every moment on Galveston Island. Our time was spent on the beach enjoying the smooth white sand, playing with our grand dog, fishing, enjoying time with our grown children, going to the Club and swimming in the pool and having some delicious meals there, and enjoying the many spectacular views we had from the house on the various porches. We cooked many of our meals in the home and found all the tools we needed to prepare them. The home is very comfortable and comes very well equipped! Our weather was perfect and so was our stay. Thank you Applegates for sharing your home with us. It truly was PARADISE!

Perfect getaway! They had everything ammenity wise and a 50ft walk to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

A gorgeous vacation home with tons of space! From the moment we drove into for driveway, we knew we had made an awesome choice. There are several spaces to enjoy. I loved the master suite with the huge master bath! Decor was up to date and had a pottery barn feel. The 2 huge decks were the best! It was easy the whole time we we're there! We grilled every night! They had every dish or utensil you could think of! They have a full garage of beach toys, boogie boards, tubes, sun tents you are free to utilize. The beach was nice and racked. And PRIVATE. That was a great amenity. They were exceptional hosts and we hope to book it again!

Well maintained beach house with modern amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house just 3 doors down from beach access. Wi-fi, modern appliances, and well maintained. Perfect if you want to relax on the beach with your family. The commercial touristy stuff is a 20 minute ride to Galveston. The owners provided all the necessary info in advance and were easy to work with. Highly recommended!

Excellent place for three couples!

  • 5 of 5

Three couples stayed Jan. 29 - Feb 2. During the winter months, the entire area was quiet and private. The house has easy access to the gulf-side beach, with many walkways for pet strolls, and small "catch-and-release" ponds throughout. The home has three bedrooms and three full baths, so each couple had their own private space. Bedrooms are arranged so they are quiet, and the TV/DVD downstairs did not interfere with those who went to bed early!

There are four areas for people to gather or get some space from others: the dining area, the living room, the upstairs balcony, and the downstairs patio. Comfortable furniture in each area allowed full enjoyable use of each area. (Okay, the dining area chairs/bench might be a stretch to be described as comfortable!) The patio downstairs has a barbeque and a drum fire pit. We used the fire pit one night, and stayed toasty warm in spite of the low temps.

Lauren was readily available by phone or email when we needed something. The place was just perfect for us, and we enjoyed every minute we stayed there!
