BEACHFRONT HOUSE WITH PRIVATE POOL, BIG SCREEN WALL TV, PANORAMIC GULF VIEWS, WiFi. LINENS PROVIDED - NO CHARGE! SMALL PETS ALLOWED. LOWEST PRICE ON THE BEACH FOR WHAT WE'RE OFFERING.
Our tastefully decorated - very 'beachy' to the last detail, - open concept beach house with original art work is smoke-free and one-of-a-kind. Ours is the only beach house in Surfside or anywhere on the Texas coast to offer a private pool with optional heating. And, this is one of the very few beachfront houses in the area to offer a large screen wall plasma television, new stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, all linens included (this saves you $140 over other rentals), and televisions in every room! Rain shower head in the nautically detailed bathroom for that luxurious five star feeling. This is an ultra-luxe house!
NO ONE, BUT NO ONE, OFFERS THE AMENITIES OF THIS BEACH HOUSE AT OUR PRICES MAKING IT THE BEST VALUE ANYWHERE NEAR HOUSTON. NO ONE CAN OFFER BETTER AMENITIES OR PRICE ON THE GULF. AVOID THE 'GIRLS GONE WILD' AND OTHER PARTIES COMMON TO GALVESTON. SURFSIDE BEACH IS FOR FAMILIES.
But wait - there's more. We call our house 'Island Time,' because that is where time slows down to increments of pleasure and relaxation. You sense that the moment you walk through the door into another world of sheer comfort. All the cares and worries of your every day busy life are left behind.
And wait until you walk into the romantic master bedroom. The pizzaz of the red accents are tempered by the king bed's nautical quilt, tons of pillows and dreamy mosquito net canopy. This bedroom is away from the others and looks out over the rolling surf. When you're not renewing your relationship or listening to the soothing sounds of the gentle surf, there's a 27 inch television in the room for your viewing pleasure.
When morning arrives and the rest of your party sleeps comfortably in the back bedrooms, there's no need to miss your morning Starbucks. An expresso machine awaits in the kitchen. This will be a morning coffee like no other enjoyed either at the glass topped cafe table on the deck overlooking the pool or strolling along the beach.
There is a charcoal BBQ and half bath and outdoor shower to rinse off that beach sand downstairs. From this area you may view sunsets over the IntraCoastal and sport fishing boats headed out to some of the best fishing on the Texas coast. The fishing charter boats nearest Houston are located here where deep water fishing is a short distance away along with the best dive spot of the Texas coast.
The Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary is located only about 35 miles offshore. The Flower Garden Banks harbor the northernmost coral reefs in the United States. The rare/endangered species best known to the sanctuary are the loggerhead sea turtles, the leatherback sea turtles, and the hawksbill sea turtles.
Surfside Beach is the place to go to get away from it all. This small, quaint beach community has convenience stores, a surf shop, and local non-chain restaurants with great home cooked food and small town prices. The Red Snapper Inn features home cooked entrees and some of the best gumbo this side of New Orleans (featured in Texas Monthly Magazine for its great gumbo!).
Attractions/nightlife like the Strand and Moody Gardens are close on nearby Galveston Island.

About the owner: We purchased this delightful house as our retirement home. My husband and I are boaters and love the water. We worked hard to make this beach house perfect for guests, and are very particular (as past guests can tell you) about keeping the house clean, comfortable, and in perfect repair. We want people to leave happy memories to fill the house when we finally get to live there full time. Thanks to all past guests who have done just that!
Why the Owner Chose Surfside Beach: Compared to Galveston, Surfside Beach is a quiet, small town with a sense of community more suitable for families. It is closer to Houston; the beach is cleaner; it is much better for fishing and boating; and museums, shopping malls, movie theaters and great restaurants are of closer proximity to the town than most of Galveston Island.
The Unique Benefits at this House: This beach house has the only know in-deck pool from the Mexican border to Dauphin Island, Alabama. Pool heating, although optional, is available. It is located in a small subdivision on one of the nicer stretches of middle beach.
