The condo was spotless. The view fantastic. Despite the fact there was a motorcycle rally going on, it was relatively quiet. We were far enough out from downtown that it was peaceful there. We did have issues with the televisions
however we didn't watch television much at all. I expected to see damage from the previous hurricane that went through earlier, but there was none. If you want to go into town, give yourself some time; it is a half an hour away.
All I all, we look forward to spending time there again next year. Lisa was very attentive to our requests.
Restaurants, exercise facility, lazy river pool, hot tub and more. We enjoy walks on the beach and one of the most peaceful settings on the planet.
We just got home from our vacation at Arthur's beach and bay and it was fantastic! We stayed in unit 103 and it had everything we needed - amazing views, fully equipped kitchen, clean and comfortable and lots of toys for my teenagers to play with. They fished, swam, kyaked and paddle boarded. Loved having access to the beach club. They had a great pool and private beach. Could not have asked for anything more. If you're looking for a great place to stay, you can't do any better than this!
I cannot say enough great things about this rental! Pointe West is a great property for a family vacation and this unit, in particular, is amazing. We had everything that we needed for a group of 7 including my parents and my nephew. The unit was clean, spacious, and outfitted with ample cooking gear, beach toys, and furniture.
The unit is set off to the side of the growing development and overlooks the fisherman wading in the bay. We used the provided kayaks just off the unit and it is shallow and safe enough for everyone to give it a try. You could see the baitfish jumping and redfish rolling the water, along with birds, crabs, and all sorts of wildlife in the bay and marsh.
The bay side pool is a quick ride down the road and has a cool little lazy river and a bigger pool. We didn't really take advantage of the main complex, but we did use the beach access. The beach is combed by tractors and really as good as Galveston gets. It is a bit of a trek across the walkway, so pack light for the beach or don't forget the wagon.
The owner was super attentive and the communication was great. She made sure that we had everything we needed before and during our trip. It was great for my parents to see how great a vacation rental can be for traveling with the whole family. We have stayed in quite a few vacation rentals and this was one of the better experiences we have had.
Our first Galveston island adventure and absolutely could not imagine a better place than Arthur's Beach and Bay. We had a beautiful and very memorable family holiday. The offseason is not ever off here. I reccomend this location highly in every respect. We will be back!
