Surfside Beach house description

Two story beach home located in the Surfside beach community. Beautiful views from all sides of our upper deck. This home is fully loaded for all your sun and fun needs. You will find T.V.s in every room and all the comforts of home. We have a big kitchen and dining area that is equipped with everything you need to enjoy a wonderful grilled steak, or seafood dinner.

Located within a short, two minute walk of the Surfside pedestrian beach where local surfers can be seen both summer and winter. Lots of opportunities for family fun at Jetty Park. Take a stroll to the end of the walkway and watch the dolphins at play.

We are close to the popular restaurants in the area. Enjoy tasty hamburgers and onion rings from the Purple Cow, or a festive night out at the Red Snapper Restaurant. Travel down the Blue Water Highway to the public crabbing pier or charter a deep sea fishing tour. Or maybe you just want to soak up the sun on one of our two decks and enjoy the sights and sounds of a beach get-away.

Whatever your preferences for your vacation, we would like to do our best to accommodate your needs at our Surfside home away from home.

                        My family, children and grandchildren, spent a week in July at this house. The floor plan is very good for multiple families since it has two bedrooms upstairs that have access to a secondary deck plus a bedroom and bath on the main floor. The kitchen are and dining area are more than adequate and it is a short walk or even better a two block drive to the beach. Beach was not crowded like the drive on beach and was much cleaner. One note: if you've never gone to Surfside for a vacation, always take mosquito spray for there are on occasion mosquitoes in the evening and night. I would recommend this house and stay here again.

                        The beach home was simply amazing! It was equipped with everything that you have in your own home . It had the most beautiful view of the beach in the morning from the second floor balcony . We enjoyed grilling outside and the short walk to the beach! The only down side was the shower on the first level was not working properly but everything else was simply amazing my family will be returning for another vacation...... We the Garrett & Smith Family had an amazing stay

                        Enjoyed the week at the beach house with family. Really liked the second deck. We were lucky that we didn't have any mosquitoes. It was nice having the washer/dryer to use. Everything was as described in ad. The only downside to this property would be the neighbors dogs barked loudly while dogs were outside (Thank goodness they weren't out much). The hammock was also torn and couldn't be used. Toilets could have worked a little better. Other than those things we had a terrific time. We would definitely recommend this to family and friends.

                        Recommended for: Families with young children, girls getaway, families with teenagers, age 55+, pet owners.

                        Owner response: Thanks so much for your review Dianna! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay! Here are just a few comments to answer your concerns. The dog owners next door have bark collars on their dogs. Don't know why they were noisy when you were there, and I regret that they were. The hammock is being replaced and there is a spare parachute hammock stored in the drawers in the laundry room......Toilets have always been a little slow since we purchased our beach house, but holding the handle down for awhile seems to work.....We are working on a solution for that situation. We are always working to improve our Beach House Home Away from Home and hopefully you and your family will return to see the results. Thanks for calling our attention to your concerns!...Barb

                        Great house, great beach lots of big waves to boogie board and lots of sun. Overall lots of fun! We enjoyed the two decks & hammock. The house AC works really well, plenty of space for the six of us. But there are no large food stores in the area so stock up on supplies before you get there as the convenience store is really high priced. If you want a beach vacation this is the place, there is also a really long fishing pier jetty. If you want to do things like shop, sight see or go to Moody Gardens then you might want to stay in Galveston. We cooked up some family meals in the big kitchen but also went to Galveston twice during our stay and ate at Gaido's & The Mosquito coast cafe. It's about 45 minutes from the house but it's a nice scenic drive of the area between the two islands with the colorful beach homes & beaches. It does cost $2 dollars each way to go to Galveston though because its a toll road.

                        Can't say enough good about this house, It felt like Home away from Home..My husband and I stay in Surfside one week every year for his Birthday, this was the 1st time at this house and won't be the last..3 blocks from the beach not much futher to the Jettys and 10 minutes from San Luis Pass when we want to go fishing..Had a few friends up for weekend to celebrate his Birthday and they all loved the comforts of this house..Very friendly neighbors that welcomed us..Had the best week yet here!!

                        We had a blast at the beach! Minutes away from Great Fishing and Crabbing. Short walk to good swimming. We will definitely be back. The upper deck was beautiful at sunset, the fireworks were an added bonus and the kids didn't find us until the last day!! Plenty of space for everyone.

                        - The house itself was very clean and absolutely comfortable. Interior decorating was very homey. The rooms were very comfortable and the owners even had deck lounge chair cushions available for use stored in the master bedroom. Plenty of linens. The stairs up to the house are a real work out too, so we knew we weren't just bumming around. Just make sure to bring basic necessities like paper towels and toilet paper (4-hr trip and to find out no toilet paper will catch you off guard lol). - The view was absolutely beautiful. We absolutely enjoyed both decks. Even my friend's dog enjoyed the deck. But please be aware, you'll need plenty of mosquito repellent and citron candles nearby. First day was fine. That night it rained a little, and the next morning they were swarming. - My family, friends and I loved the fact that the beach was in walking distance. - Service was amazing. The owner was very helpful with the rates so the whole package was well worth it. We had a little issue with the bbq pit, but the owner was absolutely amazing with answering us back quickly with our problem so it was pretty surprising. The service from the owners made the stay enjoyable. - The stay was excellent. I rented the house for a place to spend time and relax with family and friends from out of town after my graduation that morning. We were absolutely bummed we couldn't stay more than 2 nights. - I'd definitely recommend.

                        This little beach house was positively adorable and I cannot thank the owners enough for being so gracious and accommodating. I did quite a bit of shopping around for a last-minute holiday weekend for a beach rental that allowed large dogs. We found a few options that were slightly less expensive (and had fewer amenities etc.) but by the time the other websites and their management companies started tacking on fees and pet deposits, this rental ended up being quite the bargain. Moreover, we were accommodated with an early check-in and late check-out and a garage full of deck chairs, and beach stuff. The place is actually larger than it appears in the photos. It’s also closer to the beach than it looks on all the maps (i.e. close enough to mosey back and forth). There’s a wagon in the garage so you don’t have to haul a cooler in the car. The best part was that we apparently picked a weekend to go when a huge party invaded Surfside and were totally oblivious to it. It was not crowded at all. I’d go back anytime.

                      About the owner: We are a family that enjoys all the relaxing elements of the beach. It is truly our escape place.

                      Why the Owner Chose Surfside Beach:
                      We recently purchased this house after Hurricane Ike destroyed our families three beach houses located at Gilchrist on Bolivar Peninsula. We were impressed with the friendly family atmosphere that Surfside beach has to offer. Our family is proud to call this our new home away from home.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Sun and fun with the grandchildren. Dining at our favorite seafood restaurants. Visiting with family and friends.
