Surfside Beach house description

Very cozy, comfortable, and clean beach home. This is our vacation home that we rent occasionally and not your typical rental. We have a full kitchen, sand toys, games, books, & skim & boogie boards. We provide linens too! All you need to bring is beach and bath towels. Also, you are welcome to use whatever we have in our home we just ask that you respect our things and replace anything if you break or lose it.

We are in the perfect location because on one end of our street is the beach and at the other end is Kitty's Purple Cow. (We are in the middle of the block/street) We have a nice breeze and view of the ocean from our huge covered outside deck and the beach is only half a block (maybe 100 yards) away. It's a super close walk.

Our home can sleep six but it would be very cozy. We are a much better fit for a 2 person getaway weekend, grandparents taking their grand baby on a special trip to the beach, or small families with only one or two children.

Sorry but we do not rent to anyone under 25 years old and are not available for proms, and/or any parties. As we said earlier - this is actually our vacation home that we use and enjoy. We love to share our home with others, have met many wonderful people, and made long lasting friendships with many of you.

If you are looking for a small, comfortable, & affordable get away - we might be just what you're looking for.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1976

              About the owner: My family has owned this beach house for over 30yrs and we have wonderful memories in Surfside Beach. Our parents have, 'passed the torch' and we are now making similar wonderful memories with our children/their grandchildren. This is a wonderful clean family beach and Beachcomber is the perfect house to call home base and get out of the sun, cool off, and have a bite to eat before hitting the beach again. This is not a large beach house - but it is very comfortable and perfect for a family or romantic couple get away. We hope you and your family enjoy your stay in our home and make wonderful memories to share for years to come! All we ask is that you love & respect our home so we can continue to keep our rental prices affordable & continue to offer all of the 'extras' (sand toys, games, boogie boards, etc.) for all of us to enjoy. :-)

              Why the Owner Chose Surfside Beach:
              We spent a big part of our childhood on this beach! We don't get to enjoy Beachcomber as much as we used to and the taxes in the area are going crazy! We decided to try sharing our home with others looking for a fun affordable Gulf Coast getaway and have truly enjoyed meeting so many wonderful guests & hearing their stories. :-) Our home is not your typical 'beach rental' and we are not a property management company. Beachcomber is our vacation home so there are a lot of 'extra' items, (cooler, books, always a full 5 gallon water bottle for cooking & drinking, boogie boards, sand toys, etc.) Feel free to use whatever is there or leave items that others may want to enjoy! :-) Me casa es su casa. We use and enjoy our home during the Summer months but will consider long term/monthly rentals in the Winter.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We love to take the kids to the crabbing pier. You never know if the kids catch the crabs or the crabs catch the kids!! My stomach hurts every time from all the laughing. This is a very special time and place to spend time & make memories with your significant other or small family. It's very comfortable and just good, clean fun! The jetties during the day is amazing and you can almost always see a dolphin or two. Local fishermen are very friendly & always happy to show off their 'catch' or pose & take pictures. In the evening we like to relax on the deck and enjoy the nice wonderful breeze. Galveston is about 30min away so sometimes we will drive over and spend the day visiting but we prefer to come 'home' to a less populated beach.
