WHAT BETTER TIME FOR A QUICK GET AWAY TO SURFSIDE BEACH.
ENJOY A QUITE WEEKEND OR WEEK AT THE BEACH!
Off Season has been busy and I've been down to Surfside to get things ship shape for Summer.
I've just put in a New Washer & Dryer and replaced the old sofa\bed with a new sofa\queen bed. New over the stove Microwave Oven. Best of all a New KING SIZE Bed for the MASTER Bedroom!!
Oh and I also put a 40' FLAT SCREEN TV in the Living Room and a 32' FLAT SCREEN TV in the Master Bedroom!!

So if you're looking for an affordable Vacation at the Beach give me a call.
You're just an hour away from a relaxing good time!
It's time to get away for some down time at Surfside Beach!! Whether you and a significant other or a family outing to the beach The Flamingo is what you are looking for.

We have it all: three bedrooms, two full baths, washer and dryer, appliances and bedding. We have a large kitchen where more than one person can be the COOK! Check out the pictures below! [These weren't taken years ago either]

Hey enough of the stuff to make your stay comfortable. Best of all the Flamingo is a ROOMY second row beach house with a view of the beach from our GREAT COVERED DECK! Cross a PRIVATE ROAD and our COMMUNITY BOARDWALK TAKES YOU RIGHT TO THE BEACH. JUST A FEW EASY STEPS (see picture) and YOU'RE ON THE BEACH!!

The Flamingo sleeps approximately 12 people. The Master has a New King Size Bed & 2nd Bedroom has a Queen Bed & a Double Bed. The 3rd Bedroom has 2 twin size bunk beds.

Our favorite place of all is our FANTASTIC COVERED DECK. As you can see in the picture it runs the full length of the front of the house. We also have plenty of deck chairs for you to enjoy!
Then we have the downstairs. With a cement floor and the Grill it can be it's own party. So come visit the Flamingo for a long weekend, a full week or longer. Enjoy the most convenient beach to Houston where the biggest traffic jam is waiting on a Great Hamburger at Kitty's Purple Cow.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: I grew up in Houston and when I was in Junior and Senior High we used to always come down to Surfside Beach & Galveston to go surfing. Later on we would come down to sail our Hobie Cat and just hang out at the beach. As Galveston got more and more crowded we started going to Surfside only! We always looked at the cool houses on stilts and thought it would really be nice to spend the whole day at the beach & not worry about driving all the way back to Houston! Finally a few years ago we bought 'The Flamingo' to do just that and decided to rent it to meet some of the expenses. Even though I rent The Flamingo I also use it whenever I can! It's about an hour drive door to door from my house in Houston and we'll take off early on a Friday or any other day for that matter and run down for the night. You can't beat it!!

                  Why the Owner Chose Surfside Beach:
                  I've been going down to Surfside for YEARS and it's one of the few beach communities that remains 'OLD SCHOOL'. You don't have the high rise condos like Galveston, Corpus Christi or South Padre Island! You can even drive on the beach! Even though a lot has changed over the years Surfside Beach still retains unique character. Plus it's only an hour or so from Houston; so if you want a quick getaway it's PERFECT!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Even-though I rent my beach house I also use it! So I do a lot to keep it up and not just keep it as Rental Property like its some business! The Flamingo is on a very small and quiet cul d sac with only 6 houses on the street. Since there's no through traffic it's perfect for the kids to play around without worrying about a lot of traffic. Also you cross the street, go in-between the houses across the street and there's a common boardwalk that takes you right to the BEACH!! The Flamingo is perfect for up to approx. 12 people. There a 3 bedrooms, a large living room, kitchen,& nook. You don't get that cramped in feeling. However, my favorite feature in the great deck. Lots of room and it's shaded in the afternoon. I think I have the perfect beach house. Not too fancy, but still with all the conveniences you could want! Take a look for yourself.
