About Barbara Haney
Cheers from the Bluewater Star family Barbara and Mike Haney and sons Bobby and Jack. We built this home and started offering it for rentals when our boys were 6 months and 3 years old. They are now 12 and 15 so we have been doing this for quite a while. One of the reasons we have been able to keep our home well-maintained is because we live in Houston so we come down and stay at our home at least once a month. If something is not working we are able to fix it immediately. One of the benefits to you of renting this home is that we own a home repair and remodeling company in Houston so we are able to keep our beach house well-maintained for you and all the families who return year after year.
Barbara Haney purchased this House in 2006
Why Barbara Haney chose Surfside Beach
There is no other rental home in Surfside that is comparable to the Bluewater Star beach house and what this house offers families. From the house design that takes advantage of the ocean views and the huge fabulous lot where we are situated seconds from the beach with a private walkway and gazebo with piped music, the fabulously stocked kitchen, the comfortable beds and the experience of owners who have been renting this house out for 12 years. This house is well-maintained because we live close by and we own a home repair and remodeling company. This means maintenance is easy to keep up with and repairs can be made quickly. It means every appliance works. And because we have been doing this for 12 years, we've had time to put in things to add to your creature comforts and also the comforts of the littlest ones in your family. You will see and feel the difference between our home and other beach rentals you have been in the minute you walk into our home.
What makes this House unique
We understand that when you rent a beach house the plan is to be spending most of your time either enjoying the waves or enjoying the home and we have done everything we can to make this the most comfortable and well stocked beach house you have ever been in. A comment I hear frequently from my guests is that they are so happy to see such a wonderfully stocked kitchen. My husband and I are life-long foodies and our background is the hospitality industry. The last thing we want to do when we're getting ready to come to our beach house is pack every single thing we need to cook a good meal, so it's imperative that our beach house kitchen have everything that we might need. We think that you will like this too.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
This house is beautiful. It has a great view of the ocean from all the porches. It is family friendly. I was impressed that it was so quiet even with our family staying upstairs. The beach was not crowded except on the Fourth of July. The kitchen has everything you might need. Barbara was great with all our questions. We already want to go back!
This is a great home and we had a wonderful stay. Kids loved it. Kitchen had everything. View was outstanding. Pergola was excellent. Very convenient, large, enjoyable.
Best vacation house
First of all, this is the first place that the owner actually talked to me before the trip. The owner is very approachable, and responding to questions very quickly. Secondly, The house is very comfortable with all the amenities. Wifi is actually very strong throughout even with many devices on at the same time. All the TV's are smart TVs. There's even a TV in the master bathroom! There are more plates and bowls, pots and pans, and silver-wares than you ever need. Even though the water in Surfside is not very clean, the house has water softener, and filter drinking water as well. We also love the kayak with life-vests available for us. We feel that the owner really cares and goes out of her way to make us feel comfortable away from home.
The only small negative thing is some of the door from the bedroom to the deck were old and stuck and was unable to open.
Overall, best experience with homeaway rental since we started renting vacation homes many many years ago. Thanks Barbara. We will definitely rent again if we head to Surfside and we don't have more people than the 12 limited

First, the property and location is fantastic. Unbelievable views and so comfortable. You will want to take the kitchen home and make it your own. Great design ideas for hosting guests in the house. Super kid friendly from toys and games to latches on all the outside decks for safety. The owner is a dream to plan and communicate with regarding stay. So organized. This was a seamless booking experience. The view of the ocean from inside the great room is priceless! Do not hesitate to book here.
Hi Derek- thank you so much for your review, it’s so appreciated, and we look forward to having you and yours stay at our home again sometime. You all were absolutely delightful guests. Until i hear from you again, i wish you happy travels wherever you go. Barbara
My grandkids and their families were very happy to be there right on the water. It helped with the great loss of their grandfather a few months ago. It gave them something else to think about
