Surfside Beach house description
Making Memories is a 5 bedroom 3 bathroom beachfront house just completed in July 2012. We love spending time at our house and love seeing others enjoy it also. Come be some of the first guests to stay in this beautiful home.
The house is located right on the beach with a newly constructed private walk over just steps away from the water in Surfside Beach. The stress melts away as you climb the stairs or ramp and hear the sound of the waves. It is in the new Velasco Shores Subdivision right next to Stahlman Park.
All the furniture and furnishings are brand new. The house has many windows and offers amazing beach views from anywhere in the living area along with the from the master bedroom and bedroom 2. It has wonderful finishes throughout and is designed with large groups in mind. The house offers 10’ high ceilings throughout with a cathedral ceiling in the living room, dining room, and kitchen area. There is wainscoating in the hallway and 8' high doors throughout the house. The kitchen is designed with entertaining in mind and has plenty of room to move around, stainless steel appliances, large french door refrigerator, tons of counter space, and a large 8’ granite island that seats 4 people. The kitchen is open to the dining room and living room area so you can still be part of the group while you cook. There is also a large 8' x 4' counter top height table in the dining room that seats 10-12 people. The living room has a large 50' LCD flat screen TV, Blueray/DVD player, stereo with IPod Dock, PlayStation 2 for the kids and a leather sectional with queen sleeper. There is a large 10’x40’ covered porch to escape the sun while you enjoy the beautiful views and sound of the waves. We added a private walk over in the spring of 2013 to allow easy access from the deck directly to the beach. There is also a shower under the house with hot water for washing the sand off and plenty of parking both on the concrete under the house and in the large driveway. There is a gas grill, and a picnic table under the house. There is also a ramp that makes it much easier to bring your luggage, coolers, etc. up to the house.
The house has five bedrooms and sleeps approximately 18 people. It includes a master bedroom with a king size bed, 32' LCD TV w/ Dish Hopper, and master bathroom with a vessel sink & granite countertop and a 4' shower. Bedrooms 2 and 3 both have queen beds and share a Jack and Jill bathroom with granite countertop, dual sinks, and a shower. Bedrooms 4 and 5 are bunkrooms but also have full size beds so they can be used for adults if needed. Bedroom 4 has a full bunk bed along with 2 twin bunk beds. Bedroom 5 has a full bunk bed and a twin bunk bed and includes a TV with Dish Hopper and DVD Player. Bath 3 is located right across the hall from Bedrooms 4 and 5 and has a bathtub. There is also a queen sleeper sofa in the living room and a pack n play.
Surfside Beach is about an hour south of Houston. There are endless possibilities for fun regardless of the season. The house is located within the Villiage of Surfside Beach Limits and only 1.5 miles from restaurants, etc. There is a paved trail along Bluewater Highway that leads right to town. The house is located in the newly constructed Velasco Shores neighborhood which consists of 10 lots and is a very closely knit community with wonderful neighbors and few rental properties. It is located across the street from the public crabbing pier and fishing is everywhere. You can fish in the surf, in the bay, off a pier, or deep sea with a charter boat.

Our stay was so enjoyable, peaceful and private. The walkway from the deck straight to the beach was wonderfully useful especially for making kitchen runs for snacks and frozen drinks. The beds were very comfortable. You had all the kitchen aides you would want except for ice maker so buy ice and drinking water since the tap water is questionable at best. After eight nights we felt the time went way too quickly and wished we had another couple of days more. Definitely a favorite place for future vacation destination for us.

We loved the house and all the amenities........... it was an awesome house and a beautiful setting for our family vacation with 10 children under age 13 and 2 parents and two kid wranglers! We loved the hot water for all showers..... all the time.......... that was the most amazing thing for everyone else though MOM enjoyed the kitchen the best! We also had a child with a wheel chair in our party and even though the ramp is not as "friendly" as our one at home it was easier than many others we have used..........and sure made the beach house useable and accessible for us with her though it required parent supervision ........... over all it was an amazing vacation and we plan to be back.

What a wonderful house. I thought we had rented high end houses before, but this one takes the cake. We had a wonderful time. The completely shaded deck was a plus. The ramp made loading and unloading with a wagon a breeze. My knees can't take beach house stairs. The bathrooms are wonderful and the beds are comfortable. There's even a sleep number king size bed. The kitchen is huge and very modern. Very nice TV's and Dishnetwork. The wifi worked fine and I was able to keep up with me inbox. We'll be back next year for sure.

The beach house overall was great and accommodated all our family. Had a little confusion with the sheets for some of the beds. The beds were not made when we arrived but each bed had a set of sheets on it, however, they did not fit. Full sheets on a queen bed, queen on a full, etc. And some sheets were a little worn. Plenty of towels and kitchen supplies. Games and puzzles and beach toys for the kids were provided. Having the grill was nice. Used the grill twice for hamburgers. All-in-all it was a great place and we would rent it again in the future.

We had such an enjoyable week at this house! I've been going to Surfside since I was in junior high so I've stayed in lots of houses there and this one is ranked right at the top. In my years going to Surfside, I've learned that houses are either old and small or huge and overpriced, but this house fit the bill! We had five families (four with multiple children) and we never felt crowded- even on the days that the weather wasn't great and we were in the house a lot. The walkover was awesome, the kitchen was the perfect size and the living and dining areas allowed everyone to feel included no matter what was going on. The amenities and quality make this house worth every penny and it will be our go-to house from now on!

Wedding/Holiday Family Vacation
Wedding/Holiday Family Vacation
Beautiful home for the family to hang out while in town for our son's wedding and holiday reunion. We came from far away places such as New Jersey, California and Alaska! There was plenty of space to hang out and things to do for kids of all ages. Great times were had with holiday activities, dinners, shrimp boils and beach time. We all left with many fond memories to share. Unit was well equiped with dinnerware, appliances, etc. Owners were very accomodating and helpful. Would recommend the beach house to anyone.

This was the perfect home for our annual Thanksgiving trip with the whole family. Loved the large open space in the kitchen and dining areas. Everyone was able to move around easily. The view of the Gulf was priceless. Had the best time watching the sunrise/sunset. Perfect weather while we were there. Neighbors were all nice and said hello. Home still had that new feel to it, everything was super clean. House was very equipped with everything to make large meals. There was a small store only 2 miles away for any of those last minute things you may have forgot to get. The only problem we had was……………….nobody wanted to leave. Thanks for everything Shelia!!! Our stay was perfect!!!

Wonderful New Property
Wonderful New Property
We rented this beach house the week of my wedding because it was directly next door to our venue. My whole family that stayed in the house were extremely happy about the house. The house was extremely clean and nice and had all of the amenities that it promised. We had no problems with anything the whole time we were there although I did get a bit of dishwasher envy. The dishwasher was so quiet you never knew that it was running at all! Over all if we ever decide to have another beach vacation we will definitely be coming back!

Very close to beach. Neighbors who owned home very nice. BBQ pit kind of old. had 10 adults so sleeping on bunks as an adjustment, but all accomidations were great, and everyone said that they would want to return. Not bad for 10 all 55+ in age!! Great dining room table. Tons of plates, silverware, cups and glasses. Owners were very very nice to deal with. A great stay for only about 1.5 hour drive.

About the owner: We live just north of Houston and have 2 children ages 7 and 10. We built Making Memories to create memories with our kids before they are grown and out of the house. They love the beach and spending time at the beach is a great opportunity to slow down and connect with family and friends. We hope you can use our home to create your own memories.
Why the Owner Chose Surfside Beach:
We found this subdivision and really fell in love with the spectacular views and large lots. Our house is located on a cul-de-sac with lots of room around the houses and plenty of parking.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We looked at many existing homes before deciding to build this house. We were looking for something newer with higher end finishes and just couldn't find anything already built that met our criteria. We were able to customize the floorplan to create a very family friendly atmosphere with a large gathering area and plenty of beds.
