Property description

ITS ALWAYS GREAT HERE...FISHING ON YOUR PRIVATE PIER, MOONLIGHT STROLLS ALONG THE BEACH OR WATCHING SUNSETS ON THE BAY FADE INTO STAR LIT NIGHTS.

There are not many of these...Enjoy your own private lighted fishing pier, witness spectacular sunrises over the Gulf and sunsets over Little Drum bay. And best of all, if you bring your boat, you can launch and park next door at the paved, private boat launch and leave your boat parked at our private pier.

Completed in June 2008, this home has two very large covered balconies facing Little Drum Bay. Watch the kids fish on the lighted pier while you gently sway in the futon hammock designed to hold two adults. Read your favorite book, nap or sip on your favorite drink while watching the spectacular sunsets.

Inside you can relax in the spacious and open floor plan designed to accommodate groups of all sizes. The kitchen has all-stainless steel appliances. Gourmet cooks enjoy being able to prepare their favorite dishes, listening to their favorite music while gazing at the views of the bay.

Three bedrooms are upstairs but one is downstairs for the occasional late night arrival or grandpa's snoring.

The beach is only 1.5 blocks away. Load up the chairs, umbrella and cooler and putter over to the beach to build sand castles, wake board, surf-fish or just kick back and enjoy the views. When you come home, rinse off under the outdoor shower with hot and cold water.

At the end of the day, you can play board games with the family, sit out under the stars, make smores over the fire in the firepit or watch movies or TV.

There are a variety of other activities which include local restaurants, putt-putt golf, Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn water park, the confederate air force museum, and The Strand, a world class shopping area in Galveston.

There is no better value in a family vacation that offers this many options.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

Why the Owner Chose Surfside Beach:
Surfside Beach is a quiet community - very family friendly - clean, wide open beaches. All the nitelife, restaurants and shopping are only a short drive away - 20 minutes to Lake Jackson and only 32 minutes to Galveston - but you don't have all the traffic and huge crowds

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is just a short walk or drive to the beach and you can still enjoy all the perks of a home on the bay - your own private lighted fishing pier - gorgeous sunsets on the bay - plenty of room in the yard to play and no traffic as on the beach
