The home was just perfect. We were stocked with all the kitchen items needed for our stay and were so appreciative to have detergent for dishes and laundry while we were there. The location was great to the beach. It was closer than we had anticipated and a short few minute walk from the property. The beach club access was wonderful after a few days on the beach. Our family really appreciated the beach without the huge crowds closer to town. There was plenty of room for our 5 adults and 5 kids. Thank you!!

Our family group of 13 enjoyed a relaxing and fun stay in this well appointed home. We appreciated being able to bring our dog – we loved the views( bay in one direction and gulf in the other!) – and the close proximity to the beach and all the beach “stuff” provided, as well as crabbing nets to use. We loved the outdoor shower on the patio, the hammock, and the porch swing with footrest ( esp. our grandsons!). We appreciated that WiFi was provided as well as books and games to use. The washer and dryer were also put to good use! We spent most of our time alternating between “hanging” together at the home or going to the beach which was just a few minutes walk away ( and no highway to cross to get there!) We prepared all of our meals in the well equipped kitchen.

Overall, we had a wonderful memorable weekend with our children and grandchildren. We highly recommend this beach home for a family getaway!

My family and I (10 people and one furry four-legged dog) stayed at this wonderful property for our annual vacation. The place was just right as far as size, layout, comfort, amenities, and location. The owners (as usual) were very attentive to any special needs or requests. There was plenty of room to stretch out and relax, and with our group, that is important. The Point West club is a very nice place to spend an afternoon or two at the pool, and those folks were very accommodating. The location of the house, a two minute walk to the beach, is perfect…and the beach on the west end was great. The listing and photos very accurately describe the property, and the furnishings were clean and comfortable. We would certainly recommend this property to anyone looking for a nice quiet vacation spot with an easy drive back in to the main attractions in Galveston.

We had a great time at Las Brisas, largely in part because of the wonderful accommodations this beautiful beach house and lovely community provides. The owners have thought of everything, and they have done it with style. We will definitely be staying here again, I can’t imagine staying anywhere else now that i’ve caught the “Las Brisas” bug… Don’t miss out on a wonderful stay in Galveston…

We loved this beach house! It is in a fantastic location as we love the Point West area and this house is very close to the beach. It is beautiful and comfortable on the inside with everything you need. And the hammock, porch chairs, extra beach chairs, etc. are all very nice to have. We chose this house because of location, look, and also because we could bring our dog! The owners are super nice and very friendly to work with. They provide many friendly tips before you arrive which come in quite handy. I would definitely recommend this beach house to others and we definitely plan to go back and stay there again!

We all spent a wonderful weekend, in January, at a wonderful beach house condo on Galveston Island. The weather was chilly at night, but not enough to stop us from enjoying a great family outing. The sun warmed up wonderfully during the day and we all taking turns going on great walks to the nearby beach. It was well within walking distance and you could hear the ocean sounds from the condo from any window or the patio. We came away with just one desire and that was that if it was so nice in January, then it would certainly be even more wonderful in the summer months. Will certainly keep it in mind.

We had a terrific time! The house is very comfortable and the location is excellent. Easy to get to, and not really far from Galveston. The pet friendliness was great… our dogs loved it! The beach is close enough for short or long visits, and if you forgot something, the walk back to the house is easy and fast. This is a great place for a week or a weekend. My wife and I would recommend it to anyone. We hope to go back in the summer for a vacation!

This is a great play to get away from everything! I simply wanted a break, and this was a perfect place. It was very quiet in the fall season and that was just perfect! I brought my dog and she loved the place, too. We walked up and down the beach, some days we were completely alone, making the only tracks visible on the beach, and other days we met friendly people who were beach combing, surfing, para-surfing, and swimming. The beach was very clean and quickly accessible.

I loved to cook and this place has a great set-up. I got fresh seafood from nearby shops (Alex’s or Seven Seas) and had a blast with all sorts of treatments, including using the fabulous grill/brazier combo for bar-b-q. I joked that this was a 7-day shrimp festival. I cooked it in almost every way possible: scampi, butterflied an fried, barbecued, prima vera, enchilads, tacos, fajitas, and more! I enjoyed especially watching the wildlife.

Each day some new birds found the pond in back. I watched them from the decks and usually ate meals outside as well. I did enjoy the hammock chair on the deck. We also tracked down lots of sand crabs and hermit crabs. “Las Brisas” or breezes is right! I typically opened the house up and just let the wind blow through the house. I enjoyed sea breezes and land breezes both.

We made it a habit to check out each sunset on the beach. Very different looking almost every day. This trip was for rest, so I didn’t need many activities, but we did watch the beach daily. We enjoyed the bay-side as well.

We participated in community activities, including crab catching. We didn’t check it out but we had access to the pool and other amenities at the club house.

This place was awesome even for just me and the dog alone, but it would sleep many very comfortably. There are three bedrooms, two with traditional bedding and the third with bunk beds for lots of kids. We were able to find several nearby churches and chose one to attend Sunday. Navigation in the area is super simple.
