Surfside Beach house description

Discounted rates during off season with the exception of Holiday weeks which are the summer rate. Email for off season rates and availability.
We enjoy our beachfront vacation home and love to see others enjoy it as much as we do.
Our calendar is filling up fast for 2014. We are now booking full weeks only for summer 2014. We will start taking reservations for partial weeks or weekends after the new year. We have many return renters that book early and the calendar for the summer was pretty full by January this year.
Our five bedroom 3.5 bath two story home sits front row on the beach with a direct private walkover from the front porch. You will have ocean views and sounds from the living,dining,master bedroom, and tv room upstairs.
Our home will sleep 11 in beds without sharing a bed, 13
counting the sleeper sofa and Futon,or 15 counting the two downstairs sofa's. That being said, it is our feeling that more than 12 people inthe house would be rather crowded and uncomfortable in the living/dining spaces indoors. If you plan to spend your time on the beach and only sleep inside, it might work for a larger group of 12-20.
You will enjoy the two long porches facing the beach with 4 large rocking chairs and a hammock to relax in.
We include linens for the beds, baths, beach and kitchen. We do ask that used linens be washed and folded before your departure. If you do not wish to take the time on your departure day to do this, you may bring your own linens from home.
We have a few beach toys,buckets,boards,chairs etc. for your use, along with board games, movies,books,legos,etc. for the children.
We are a smoke free, and pet free home, due to a child with severe allergies.

                            This was our family's second stay at Grace Waves. It is such a wonderful beachfront home. It is exceptionally well-maintained. It is clean, cute, and perfect for a family gathering. Sharon is great to work with and is always prompt and willing to help and answer questions. Surfside is a great area for a quiet, family-oriented beach stay. We look forward to a return visit as we continue to make those special family memories. Thanks, Sharon and Bob, for being such wonderful hosts!

                            We had a family reunion and the kids, and the adults, all had a wonderful time. The beautiful covered patios were perfect for lounging while watching the surf. Tip: Stay away from the grass shaded by house as the mosquitos brood there!

                            The stay here at Gracewaves was very relaxing! The house has everything you need for your stay! When planning for food to bring there is a full size refrigerator that is empty so plan accordingly and don't bring more than you need! There is a full kitchen with all utensils provided. I would stay here again without question! Very nice family to be a part of! Thank you for everything Gracewaves!!!! PS.... I loved the presence of religion throughout the house!

                            Property was clean and the walk-over was great for the little ones as weel as the big kids. Parking is ample and the home is furnished with plenty of towels and such.

                            The house was clean, well stocked, and located on a beautiful spot of beach. The house had plenty of room for all the kids and is perfect for families with kids. Sharon was always available when needed. The only thing I would warn about is bring bottled water- the water out if the faucet was gross. I would recommend this house to a friend. I would warn that it does seem like the beach could get VERY packed with people during peak season as there is access for cars/trucks to drive on the beach.

Pencil us in again for next year, same weekend! I am going to try to talk hubby into staying the week next time! God bless you and yours and may the upcoming Christmas season find ya'll blessed and wrapped in our Lord's grace and peace.

                            Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Gracewaves ! The home is beautiful, clean and comfortable. We have a large family and sometimes it can be challenging to find a home to accommodate us. Gracewaves was the perfect set up for our family. There are five bedrooms with many beds that can sleep a very large family, or several small families. (Sharon even had the pack and play set up, along with a portable booster seat/ high chair at the dining table, because I told her we had a little one and would need it.) There are plenty of extra towels, linens and beach towels along with sun tan lotion and misquito repellent to use, if needed. We enjoyed the easy access to the beach, along with the beach toys, family friendly movies and toys for the children. The board games were a nice touch and our teenage boys enjoyed several good games of chess with Dad during the evenings. We enjoyed several leisurely days at the beach, which was not crowded at all. We enjoyed going down the beach to Pirate's Alley and eating dinner on the deck overlooking the water. The fish basket was delicious ! Sharon was very helpful and prompt in answering any questions we had about places to eat and things to do. Everything went very smoothly with our stay from start to finish. We had a very peaceful, relaxing vacation at Gracewaves and would highly recommend it to other families with children, or anyone looking for a peaceful , comfortable, place to stay at Surfside. We made some wonderful memories and hope to return again to Gracewaves next year.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About the owner: Homeowners are Bob and Sharon Wyrick, married 36 years, blessed with 17 children, bio and adopted, ages 6-35, and 12 Grandchildren. Homeschooling our 5 youngest children. Home town in SE Oklahoma, but recently purchased a home on the West end of Galveston.

                          Why the Owner Chose Surfside Beach:
                          We loved our summer vacations at various Gulf coast beaches for over 30 years. We discovered Surfside one summer and found that it was best beach village we had ever visited! It was a great match for our family, with it's uncrowded beaches for the children to roam and it's location away from the major tourist areas in Galveston. Yet just a 40 mile drive away from all the actvities of Galveston or 15 to Lake Jackson for when we wanted to go into 'town'. We were able to purchase our first beach home in 2006 and named it 'Gracewaves'after the song that it reminded us of....'.Waves of Mercy, Waves of Grace, everywhere I look I see His face.'

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Beach views from our bedroom window, dining table, and living room. Not to mention the front porch! We have miles of quiet beaches to walk, ride bikes,and play on. Surfside is just a short 15 min. drive from shopping movies and restaurants. Many places to eat in the village too. Small shops nearby for essentials and rentals of surfboards, golf carts etc. A very laid back beach and lifestyle here.
