Las Brisas in Pointe West
Las Brisas in Pointe West
Welcome to Las Brisas in lovely Pointe West.
This adorable beach house is a 3 bedroom cottage in the Pointe West beachfront community. Access to the beach is via a community boardwalk 3 houses away. Enjoy the balmy breezes and the sound of the sea while relaxing in the hammock in the shaded patio or on adirondack chairs on the covered deck. This stunning house has beautiful new hard flooring downstairs and plush carpet upstairs, brand new appliances and new super-power air conditioner to keep you cool.
You will enjoy the proximity of the beach and having views of the ocean from the side of the balcony and views of the bay and the pond out back. Water views everywhere! The covered deck is a great location to enjoy the sunsets. This is the perfect place to share time with extended family, reconnect with friends and renew your soul.
As a guest at Las Brisas (an owner managed property) you will have easy access to the house via your personal lock code - which means no coordinating schedules to pick up/drop off keys and no danger of losing keys at the beach!
This home is made for families (and well behaved furry friends)! A bunk room for the kids, toys and tons of beach gear, and all the amenities of the Pointe West community if you chose to use them: pool, children's pool, lazy river, hot tub, game room playround, fishing pier and more!
The house is furnished in a beachy upscale style, and is spacious and comfortable. This home has a large fully equipped kitchen, with everything you need to feed your family in style. The large dining table seats 8 and there is a breakfast bar that seats three. The deck table and chairs seat four. We also have a card table and 4 chairs stored in a closet if you need it. The newly installed hard flooring throughout the main living areas makes kid-messes a non-concern!
The large master bedroom has a beautiful view of the pond and bay and has a queen bed, futon, gorgeous master bathroom and a private deck for watching the sunset. The guest bedroom is on the first floor, with Gulf views from the large window and an adjacent bathroom. The two queen bedrooms have flat screen TV's and cable. There is also a bunk room with two twin over full bunk beds, private bath, Gulf views and a TV with integrated DVD.
The house can sleep 14, but that's with every bed full. It's not really set up for large groups of adults (bunk beds!), but is perfect for 2 families and a group of kids. Well behaved dogs are welcome.
The house technology is complete with cable, Netflix and wifi. In the event you need to connect to the outside world, you can connect your laptop to the in-house wireless system anywhere, including sitting on the deck.
There are two wonderful balconies for your enjoyment. The first is off the main living/kitchen area and the second is a private balcony for the master bedroom. Both have beautiful bay and pond views. Sip your coffee in the morning on the back deck and watch local birds at the pond - cranes, cormorants, and roseate spoonbills just to name a few.
Under the house is a large patio area for grilling and group activities. There is an outdoor shower, grill and deck chairs.
There are plenty of beach toys in the garage.
Beach Club/Pool use requires a $10 fee per person (over 3 years old) that covers your entire stay. Beach Club use is optional. No fees charged during October – March. Bikes are available to rent at the Beach Club as well as a toddler trailer.
Parent Note: The balcony decks are on the rear of the house and completely enclosed by railing so no worry of the kids accessing the lower level. The only way to access the balcony decks is through an exterior “back” door. The front door is the one that opens to the stairway down to the ground and all exterior doors chime when opened and closed.

The kids will love the bunk room with two twin over full bunk beds, private bath and beautiful Gulf views from the large window. There is a TV with integrated DVD and tons of DVDS.
We have boogie boards, sidewalk chalk, tons of sand toys and pool floats. Kid friendly beach shade tents and sand chairs also provided. A few added amentities for little ones are infant and toddler life vests, infant bottle brushes and baby shampoo.
There is a game room located at the nearby Pointe West Beach Club with a pool, ping pong and foosball for the bigger kiddos and a separate 12" children's pool for the smaller kids.
Parent Note: There is a pond out back that is not fenced off. Kids need to be supervised at all times. The decks, however, do not have stairs to the ground floor, so parents can enjoy outdoor time without being worried about little ones around the pond.
