Spend your days exploring the gorgeous private beach where you can play to your heart’s content with no worries about vehicle traffic. Beach access via a dune walkover is just steps away and the beach is sure to be pristine as it is regularly manicured. If you happen to feel like a change of pace then head over to one of two beautiful pools on the property. The Pointe West Beach Club offers a gorgeous infinity edge pool overlooking the ocean, a hot tub, a children's pool, a full restaurant and bar, a fitness room, a gift shop, and a game room for the kids. The Sunset Pool offers a pool with a lazy river, a hot tub, a fire pit, and outdoor grills. As an added bonus you can bring your own refreshments to the Sunset Pool. Finally, head back to Monkey Sea Monkey Dune as the sun begins to set and enjoy the spectacular sunset views gathered with friends and family on one of the two expansive Galveston Bay facing balconies. The fully equipped kitchen will please the resident chef and offers all of the cookware, utensils, and spices that you will require to prepare an amazing meal. A full array of stainless steel appliances are provided including a French door refrigerator with ice maker, range, microwave oven, and a dishwasher to help you keep things sparkling clean during your stay. A breakfast bar with stools is the perfect place to share an informal meal with family and friends and a large dining room table is also available for the times when your entire group would like to enjoy a meal together. The main living area is bathed in sunshine from a wall of Galveston Bay facing windows. An expansive deck overlooks a beautiful pond and water feature with views of Galveston Bay in the distance. After a fabulous day at the beach, the living area offers the ideal spot for your whole group to unwind and relax. You can hang out on the cozy leather sectional couch while you surf cable channels on the flat screen television or you can stream your favorite movie. You can also connect to the complementary Wi-Fi to check in on the real world back home if you so desire. Meanwhile, the private washer/dryer allows you to quickly and efficiently take care of the day's laundry. When it's time to turn in after a busy day, Monkey Sea Monkey Dune offers four luxurious bedrooms equipped with comfortable beds and plush bedding and will easily accommodate up to ten guests and two small dogs with ease (a small nightly pet fee applies). Four full baths means that there is no waiting in line in the morning or after a long day at the beach. All four bedrooms also feature flat screen televisions with cable. The master suite features a king size bed, and a beautiful en suite bathroom with a jetted garden tub, a walk-in shower, and a large closet. The master suite also features a large private Galveston Bay facing deck which is the perfect place to enjoy some romantic quiet time later in the evening. The second bedroom features a queen bed with an en suite bathroom and a private gulf facing deck with peek a boo views of the beach and surf. The third bedroom also features a queen bed and an en suite bathroom. The fourth bedroom is set up especially for the younger ones in your group and features two sets of comfy bunk beds. If you happen to be up for a fun filled day trip then downtown Galveston is only twenty minutes away. Galveston offers an endless array of attractions including Moody Gardens, the Pleasure Pier, and the Schlitterbahn water park. For the adults in the group the Strand Historic District offers plenty of night life and entertainment. A boat launch is available across the bridge at the San Luis Pass County Park. Use is free and it is available 24/7. The launch is only ten minutes away. A $2 toll is required to cross bridge. All guests must register at the Beach Club in order to use the Pointe West facilities. A one time fee of $10 per guest is required to access the Pointe West amenities during the peak season (Mar 1st- Sep 15th). The $10 fee gives each guest access to all of the Pointe West amenities for the duration of their stay. A fee of $25 will be charged to replace a lost wrist band. The two swimming pools are not heated so they may be too cold to use during the Fall and Winter months depending on the weather. A reservation will not be finalized until a Rental Agreement is signed electronically. The outside of the house is monitored using video cameras for security purposes and to verify that our rental policies are upheld. More

Not sure where to start. The house, weather, amenities, beach, clubhouse, and the city of Galveston was absolutely phenomenal! Honestly say if you are debating about staying at Derek and Malia's... remove all doubt! Fantastic hosts and my family enjoyed every minute of our vacation!

About the neighbourhood
Pointe West is located on the western end of Galveston Island and is just 23 miles from Galveston’s bustling downtown area and 70 miles from downtown Houston. The centerpiece of the Pointe West Resort is the Pointe West Beach Club which overlooks a pristine stretch of Gulf of Mexico beach. The Beach Club offers a huge infinity edge pool, a children’s pool, a hot tub, a seasonal restaurant and bar. The Beach Club also offers a game room with foosball and ping pong, as well as a fitness center with locker room facilities. On the Galveston Bay side of the property only a few minutes from the Beach Club you will find the Sunset Pool which offers a second beautiful pool area with a short lazy river, a hot tub, a fire pit, and BBQ pits.
How to get there
To reach our home take I45 south to Galveston and exit 61st St. Turn right on 61st and head to Seawall Blvd. Turn right on Seawall Blvd (which eventually turns into San Luis Pass Rd) and continue for about 20 miles Until you reach green heron Drive. Take a left on Green Heron Drive and it will lead you right to Monkey Sea, Monkey Dune at 4210 King Rail Circle. The left turn on Green Heron can sneak up on you so look out for the yellow Pointe West tower on the right side of the road which is just past the Green Heron turn. If you reach the toll bridge over San Luis Pass then you have gone too far.
