"We had a wonderful time at this beach house! The home comfortably accommodated our large family of 15; including 9 adults and 6 children. The location of this home is perfect. We were just steps from the walkover to the beach and only a mile or so from the Crabbing Pier and Jetty Park (which the grandchildren loved). The home has a large dining table with 8 chairs and a bar with 4 stools. The kitchen has plenty of cookware items and utensils. There’s an outdoor shower, grill, and picnic table on the lower level. We loved sitting on the deck where we were able to enjoy the ocean-front view. Although Tropical Storm Bill made landfall during our stay, we were still able to run down and play on the beach in between the rain showers. During the rain, we played board games, watched movies, and visited the free aquarium in Lake Jackson called Sea Center. The only downside with staying in Surfside is that the water is not recommended for drinking. It really wasn't a big deal. We just brought our own drinking water. You can even refill your water containers with filtered water for free at City Hall. The owner of the property, Gary, and the property manager, Tammy, were great to work with and were available to answer any questions. Our family created many memories at this home and we hope to make this an annual tradition."

"We have just spent one week of pure bliss in this home. It is really a lovely home away from home!
There were 14 of us who came together for the Christmas week to mark my mom's b'day. We live in Houston but some family members came from Canada and some from the UK. They were blown away and kept saying how nice it was!
The house is lovely and the pictures do not even begin to do it justice. The Christmas decorations were so beautiful. It felt so warm and welcoming.
Everyone was really happy. The owner was very approachable and amicable throughout the process and left detailed instructions for everything! All amenities were provided up to kitchen utensils. Most of the utensils I had packed and taken along from my house were redundant because they were already right there in the house for our use. All you really need are apparel to wear and groceries. Everything else is very well stocked.
We all couldn't get enough of the views of the bay, birds and wildlife and the beach was just a five minute walk up the road on the other side.
We enjoyed the peace and quite and listening to the roar of the surf from the beach and the sounds of the birds from the bay. We also went into town each day for the regular activities, the Pier, Moody Gardens, etc.
We will definitely be back and have already started planning an encore visit - perhaps during the summer, so that we can go out onto the beach more frequently.
I highly recommend this property. You won't regret it."

"First, I want to say Judy is a very nice lady who answered my bazillian questions before our trip! We had 5 adults and 3 kids in the home and found it was more than enough space for all of us. I would recommend renting a golf cart to go to/from the beach as we ended up loading into our personal vehicle to do this and needless to say with 3 kiddos it got VERY sandy! The home is beautifully decorated, does need a little remodeling in the form of painting, but everything else was clean, tidy, and ready for our use upon arrival. We absolutely loved our stay here and most certainly would return to this specific beach house. Thanks again Judy! God Bless!"
