Overview

Photos and Description of this Galveston holiday villa

Villa, 5 Bedrooms + Office, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

Luxurious 5 bedroom, 5 full bathroom villa with spectacular views of the Bay, Wetlands and Gulf of Mexico from three separate decks. Extra 6th room is a large office which can serve as a sixth bedroom. It has a leather futon which becomes a full bed and comes with its own comforter and full set of sheets. This 6th bedroom also has its own full bathroom with bathtub and shower.

Beginning the week of Thanksgiving and through New Years, the home is sumptuously decorated for the holiday season with four Christmas trees including trees in various bedrooms, holiday lights, beautiful decorations, wreaths on every door, and many more holiday decorations. Perfect for a holiday weekend getaway!

Located in the prestigious Pointe West community, this spectacular villa has been newly built and decorated in the last year with designer furnishings. Access is afforded to the Pointe West beaches, which are the widest, most beautiful beaches in Galveston as well as the Pointe West beach club which has a swimming pool and hot tub facing the beach, a fitness center, game room, outdoor table tennis and gift shop.

Right on the water near San Luis Pass, walk right out your front door and drop your fishing pole in the Bay for the best fishing on Galveston Island!

The villa has 4,000 SF of living space and over 2,500 SF of covered and uncovered decks. The main deck features three separate living areas. The first is a sofa sectional surrounding an outdoor wood burning fireplace over which hangs a 30-inch flat screen TV with surround sound speakers on the walls. The second living area surrounds the large brand-new grill so you can talk with your guests will you grill. The third living area is an outdoor dining room. The deck is filled with luscious plants. Watch some of the most spectacular sunsets while having an evening cocktail as the sun sets right in front of you over the Bay.

The second deck is on the third floor and is a sunbathing deck featuring the highest and best views of the water in Pointe West.

The third deck on the front of the villa is perfect for watching the sunrise over the beach as you sip coffee in the morning.

All decks feature a state-of-the art mosquito misting system which sprays out a natural mist perfectly safe to people and pets but toxic to insects to keep those pesky mosquitos at bay.

The gourmet kitchen is enormous and is equipped with stainless steel appliances, a microwave, dishwasher, range and oven. It opens to the spacious living room area so you can entertain your guests while you cook.

The living room features a large sofa sectional around an electric fireplace and seating for 10 ppl or more to watch a movie in the evening on a 40-inch flat screen TV hung above the fireplace with surround sound emanating from speakers in the ceiling. There is a full stereo with ipod hook up which provides sound to speakers throughout the house including all rooms on the main floor and the upstairs and downstairs outdoor decks.

There are two dining rooms - one indoor and one outdoor. Both can seat 8 to 10 ppl.

The entire main floor and outdoor decks are equipped with dimmer switches to create the perfect mood lighting for any evening.

The bedrooms are furnished with designer furnishings so that each has its own unique flair.

The main floor master bedroom is designed in silver and white with Bo Concepts modern furniture and a hand painted mural. The striking silver mirrors and standing candelabra make the room dramatic as do the hanging mood lights on all the walls. There is a 40-inch flat screen TV with DVD and surround sound coming from speakers in the ceiling. The adjoining master bathroom is uniquely octagonal with a walk-in closet and a jacuzzi jet tub and window situated perfectly so that the sun sets in front of it each evening while you enjoy a relaxing bath. This room has a king-sized bed.

The second large bedroom is on the main floor and is in a self- contained cabana attached to the main house by the main deck. It has a large full bathroom and walk-in closet. Decorated in Tiffany blue and white with West Elm furnishings, this room has a 30-inch flat screen TV on a swinging cantilever for viewing from all angles. This room has a queen-sized bed.

The third large bedroom is on the third floor and is stunningly decorate in furnishings from Z Gallerie. The hand painted mural invokes cool images to counterbalance the hot Texas heat. This bedroom opens to the third floor sunbathing deck and has some of the most spectacular views of the water from anywhere on Galveston. It has its own separate full bathroom. This room has a queen sized bed.

The third floor has two more bedrooms which create an ideal area for children/teenagers. One features a beautiful trundle bed with two twin mattresses, full dresser and window seating area. This room has a small flat screen TV with a DVD player so your kids can enjoy their favorite movies.

The second bedroom has two twin beds of Victorian style with a third trundle. It was designed with children in mind and the walls and ceiling have been painted to invoke images of a circus big top. Your kids will love it! This room also opens to the top floor sunning deck.

The main floor also has a large office which is as large as the master bedroom. It has its own private full bathroom and can serve as a sixth bedroom. It has a futon convertible into a full bed.

Please be aware that we also have two twin rollaway beds for your use that come with a full set of sheets, blankets, pillows and matching comforters.

On the first floor, there is an enormous outdoor shower with a large sitting bench. Access to the outdoor shower is through an interior staircase.

During the holiday season beginning the week after Thanksgiving, we decorate the home for the holidays with four Christmas trees and beautiful decorations throughout. It is a beautiful place to spend the holidays!

Truly a spectacular home designed for entertaining and with a crescent-shaped floor plan and enormous picture windows in every room ensuring that each room has an incredible view of the water!

Please be aware that we do allow guests to bring pets and we do have two small dogs of our own that occasionally come to the home so if you have severe pet allergies you should know that.

We hope you enjoy our home!

What makes this villa unique

The views from this home on Bay Breeze are among the most spectacular in all of Galveston. The crescent shape design of the house affords unobstructed views of the water, wetlands and ocean in all directions. You will not believe you are in Galveston, TX when you sit on the deck and watch the sunset. It is truly one of the most special sunsets anywhere in the world.

In addition, the Pointe West beaches are the best in Galveston bar none. They are cleaner, wider and the water color is beautiful.

If you come during the holiday season, you will be blown away by the homes holiday decorations. We put decorated trees with exquiste ornaments everywhere. It take almost a week to decorate the interior of the home for the holidays. We want you to come with your kids, enjoy Dickens on the Square, roast marshmellows in our outdoor fireplace, bake holiday cookies, turn on the selection of taped holiday movies and relax with a cup of hot chocolate as you take in the lovely decorations, trees and lights.

You will fall asleep in your room with a tree decorated just for that room.

Awesome house & owner!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, well maintained, roomy house! We cooked everyday in the fantastic kitchen and also enjoyed grilling and hanging out on the spacious balconies. We had a group of 10 and never felt crowded. The owner was great and a pleasure to work with. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this house to any group/family looking for a nice, relaxing getaway!

Beautiful home, peaceful paradise

  • 5 of 5

We felt so pampered in this luxurious house! The pictures on the VRBO website don't do it justice. It is much bigger! Even with 10 people staying there, everyone had their own quiet place to read and relax, yet the entire family could gather at the dining room table for meals. Sitting on the back porch in the morning, having coffee and watching the birds over the bay was the adults' favorite time. The teens loved the ocean and the beach club with all of its amenities. We were far enough away from the busy part of Galveston that noise and traffic were never an issue, yet close enough that we could pop in to the grocery store, Pleasure Pier, The Strand, and all the terrific restaurants. This was the most relaxing vacation we've ever taken, and we can't wait to stay there again.

Fun Vacation with Friends

  • 4 of 5

We just got back from spending a week here with a total of 3 families. The house is very large, and there was plenty of space for all of our 14 guests. The house is very close to the beach club, so it was very convenient to go back and forth throughout the day!

Our only complaints were that the downstairs queen bedroom (off the back deck) is essentially a queen size futon mattress on a wood frame. Our guests that slept out there complained that it was very uncomfortable. They tried to sleep on the couches hoping that'd be better, but the AC was having issues (which the owner was very nice about and sent somebody out to repair it), so it wasn't comfortably cool enough in the living room for sleeping. Also, we were only able to find a handful of washcloths in the entire house. (The house has 5 bathrooms and we had 14 people in our group.) The details given, gave us the impression that towels and washcloths are provided. We had enough towels, but you will definitely want to bring your own washcloths if you plan to use them for bathing. Plenty of beach towels are in the house as well!

The owner was very nice during our communications during our stay!

Owner's Response: We really appreciate any feedback we can get to improve our guests' stay at our home and we have since moved to address all of the issues outlined above. 1. The queen bed in the bedroom downstairs is not a futon. It is a European bed from Sweden where the style of the bed is to be low to the ground. It was actually my master bedroom bed in Houston for three years and I slept on it for three years prior to moving it to the beach house and found it to be very comfortable. Sometimes people do not like sleeping on beds low to the ground but it is just the style of the bed. I am going to purchase a second mattress to go on top of the existing mattress to raise the height of the bed as I think most of us Americans probably like our beds to be a little higher off the ground and that is the main reason it may be uncomfortable to some people. 2. The AC is now repaired. It took three visits from our AC company to figure out what the issue was. The house was cooling down to 75 degrees but not cooling lower than that. After this house guest left, I had them out a third time at which time they discovered the true reason the AC was not cooling down the house to below 75 degrees. The heating unit which is part of the AC system was locked into the heating position. So, the AC units were blowing out cold air while the heating unit was blowing out hot air through the same vents at the same time. Unfortunately, it was just one of those strange rare incidents and it took our AC company three visits over three weeks to figure out what the problem was. Once the heating unit was turned off, the house cooled down to 65 degrees in a matter of a couple of hours. 3. The comment on the wash cloths surprised me since we had just purchased 20 new wash cloths for the bathrooms just one month prior to this guest’s arrival. I stayed at the beach house last weekend and discovered that the washcloths were all being put away by the housekeeping staff in the laundry room and not the bathrooms. We, of course, immediately corrected the problem. So, there is absolutely no need to bring wash cloths as we have many of them. They just could not be found. I apologize to this house guest for them not being placed properly in the bathrooms. 4. Finally, while not a complaint of this house guest, we have also replaced the futon in the office with a daybed which is much nicer. We always appreciate any feedback to improve the quality of our guests' stay at our home. Scott

Great place for a vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were not disappointed with the house. I was everything that it was advertised to be. In less than a mile, you can take Beach Access #36 and drive right on to the beach. The bay behind the house is shallow and a great place for the kids to play. We also caught crabs and the kids loved that. Scott Gray is courteous and will communicate with you to make your stay a good one. You will love the inside of the house. Wally

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week at this home. It is lovely. We enjoyed it very much. The men floundered in the bay, just back of the property. Everyone enjoyed the beach and the beach club. Scott is easy to work with. He is very responsive to all needs.
