Perfect Location, clean place, easy checkin/out!
We've stayed at these condos and with this property manager twice now. The location at the Sunset Pool is perfect for us - we have two young children who are very content with just a short beach trip and like to spend the rest of the trip hanging at the pool. This pool has a lazy river, great shade, a great area for babies to play, and guests are allowed to bring their own drinks as long as they are not in glass. This particular condo was spotlessly clean and checkin and communication with the property managers is always easy. I have a couple of notes for travellers that may help as you plan your visits and for the owners/property manager to discuss with the complex.
1. The furnishings in this condo are heavy, dated, and not very kid-friendly. With such a big place, it would be nice for one of the bedrooms to have been outfitted for kids with lower beds (I had to create pallets of blankets and pillows on the sides of the beds in case my 3 year old fell out from so high up). The dining room table only has 4 (bizarrely heavy) chairs but the place sleeps at least 6 people. The decor is heavy and stodgy.
2) There is no recycling at this condo or at the complex at all, as far as I could find. The amount of recyclables we had to throw in the garbage over the week killed me. Highly recommend travellers bring something to cart recyclables out in if this is important to you, and for the property managers to work with the complex on getting a recycling service locally.
3) Enforcement of policies by the complex itself was nonexistent. You're supposed to have a wristband supplied by the complex to enter the pool, but no staff members were checking and so on the weekend, the pool was extremely crowded with people with no wristbands who likely weren't actually authorized to be there. The pool was covered in trash - bandages, solo cups, beer cans, etc. My big recommendation is that if you are there on a Saturday, find somewhere else to go that day, as the pool was far too crowded with partiers literally playing beer pong in the middle of the pool and tossing their trash into the pool. Every other day we were there, the pool and its guests were lovely, but that day almost ruined it for us.
Overall, despite the above noted issues, we had a lovely visit as usual and I recommend this property manager if you'll be staying at Pointe West.,
Thank you for your review of the property and the complex of Pointe West. The furnishings review will be reviewed by the homeowner. Recycling on Galveston Island is only available at one location on 61st street which is absurd we agree but that is a complaint we have all voiced with our city council. We encourage viistors to voice their concerns with the Galveston Park Board which collects the rental taxes and the city of Galveston. The lazy river complaint was copied and sent to the Pointe West Manager, Security and the Homeowner Board to make them aware of what your experienced during your recent stay. Thank you again for your input and kind words of support.
Convenient location on property with great views!
Glad we were able to accomodate you for the weekend!
Property was awesome, spacious and we loved the patio. Just a note, you will have to drive to the other property to get your wrist bands, if you're like us with impatient kids, I would definitely stop on your way into this property, so you don't walk down to the pool realizing you don't have the bands and then still have to drive over. Also, bummer for us, elevator broke the day we were leaving so we had to carry our stuff down the stairs.
Linda and Mary Alice were amazing, helpful and very quick to respond with any question or problem. I would definitely come back to stay here.
Thank you for the suggestion to guests to grab their bands on way to condo. Once the kids see the pool below they want in! The elevator going out was frustrating but we our glad it did not spoil your trip. Hope to see you soon.
June '19 stay
This resort collection of condos has been a staple for our family road trips to Galveston. Very clean, enough people to know you're at the right place, but not too hard core on the party. Friendly family atmosphere and excellent proximity to the beach and bay. This condo we stayed at with extra family was perfect accomodations. a full sized bed for kids and queens for adults. Be sure to check on the elevator status if you're on the 3rd floor though. We had mechanical issues the week we were there. We will always look forward to returning though!
Glad you didn't let the elevator malfunction spoil your stay! The location and beauty of Pointe West is awesome and the atmosphere is perfect for a family vacation.
Nice weekend getaway
We had a fun weekend and thought this condo was great for a reasonable price. Nice patio furniture and spacious accommodations . Kids enjoyed crabbing, beach time and pool time.
Glad you and the family enjoyed your stay at Pointe West!
