Overall, a great house and experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and would love to rent the property again! A couple of small items were that there needs to be a floor fan in the bunk room since the ceiling fan is disabled for safety reasons and we did not find a canopy in the storage shed. Overall, the house was great and perfect for 8-10 people including several children.

Great subdivision with great amenities

  • 4 of 5

I have stayed in many different rentals in Galveston over the years, Point West was by far the best location. However if you are renting this cottage be ready for a workout. The stairs to the cottage on the outside are very steep and narrow (due to a bush growing into the stairway). Also the kitchen is on the top floor of the cottage, up another steep set of stairs that are tiled. If you want to bring in groceries to cook be prepared. We also had two different people fall on the way down the steep stairs. The cottage remained hot our entire stay. The upstairs A/C was unable to be set lower than 70 degrees, meaning the entire upstairs never got below 74 degrees during the day. We went and bought fans to help circulate air upstairs during the day and downstairs at night. The house was very clean when we arrived and was not hard to keep clean during our stay. The beds were comfortable and clean as well. The walk to the beach was short and the beach area was clean and not crowded. If you want to use the clubhouse amenities I would suggest renting a golf cart to make the trip to and from the house. We rented a golf cart after our first day and it definitely made a difference. Overall the cottage was good, but for my family I don’t believe it will work for future stays.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, your comments are appreciated. However, I do not agree with your remarks about the steps and the AC. For your information, the steps were built according to strict Galveston County building codes and the slope is no different than any other structure in the county. Our entertaining space was purposely built on the top floor so that the views of the gulf and bay are not obscured by neighboring cottages. I would also like to note that the room setup is completely disclosed in the Homeaway/VRBO description. If stairs are a burden for you, you should not had rented our cottage. Regarding the AC – you are the first guest in 10 years of renting that had issues with the AC (including 5 groups since your departure). I suspect you did not use the thermostat correctly. As far as the distance to the beach club – many guests either walk or take their cars to the club that provides ample parking at no cost (there is no need for a golf cart). I am sorry you feel our cottage is unsuitable for your future visits. However, it is highly unlikely you will find any standalone beach cottage at ground level in Galveston County.

Beach house and owner is great. Review of area included also.

  • 4 of 5

Things to note:

1. Property is great. Plenty of space and each bedroom has its own bathroom plus a toilet room in living area on top floor. Gated stairs of little ones. Great soaking tub in master bath. House was clean. BBQ, sand toys and beach chairs available for use. Balconies are great, beautiful sunset views. No mosquitos at our stay. If you have trouble with stairs this isn't the place for you.

2. Owner was quick to reply and easy to work with.

3. The area itself is peaceful. A few minute walk to beach HOWEVER if you are freaked out over just the thought of rattlesnakes then beware. There are boardwalks that are constructed in a ridiculous way. They start with a small fence warning of rattlesnake habitats, the stairs and boardwalk lead you up and over the "snake area" then stop short and dump you off in the middle of the dunes. My husband is the only one that walked it and said if it gave him the creeps he was sure I wouldn't do it so we drove a mile or so to a beach access road and enjoyed the beach that way. Why the boardwalks don't extend is beyond me. The staff at the beach club did indicate it is in the plans to do so.

4. We enjoyed poolside at both beach club and sunset pool. The staff were terrific and friendly and very helpful. They let us look around the property before committing to purchasing a pass ($10/each for whole stay). We opted for a pass even though the pools were not heated. Beach club side was more crowded and the hot tub stayed FULL of little kids the entire time we were there. Bay side pool was more peaceful and we found time before lunch when the hot tub was empty and only a few people were lounging. Very nice and quiet other than the music going on the speakers (wish there was an option to turn nearby speaker off). Hot tub at that location was better, jets were working. Lazy river part was small but the boys still enjoyed the cold water. I'm sure in summer it's much warmer. Why a large development such as Pointe West only built two moderately sized pools is a head scratcher. They should have twice that many/size for as many residents they have.

5. Overall we loved the trip. I got some much needed R&R, away from Seawall Blvd crazies. No hesitations on booking with Alan again. I think for a summer visit we'll likely opt for Diamond Beach again - larger pool areas. I may avoid the area anyway until I see them extend the boardwalks which should be a no brainer. Buts that's just me. I am terrified of snakes. :)

Great house. Perfect deck.

  • 5 of 5

My husband likes this house so much, he wishes it was for sale!

Very comfortable. Perfect deck. Not too hot in morning for long, lazy breakfasts and enjoying evening sunsets.

The only comment would be to picky cooks to bring your own frying pan or 2. Beds and bathrooms are comfortable. We LOVE the top floor living area for the amazing views and sunlight. We would definitely stay here again.

Great Place

We live in Houston and wanted to do a quick weekend getaway with the family. This place was perfect. Great neighborhood, very clean, and very spacious. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again.
