San Luis Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12-13)


There are not many of these...Enjoy your own private lighted fishing pier, witness spectacular sunrises over the Gulf and sunsets over Little Drum bay. And best of all, if you bring your boat, you can launch and park next door at the paved, private boat launch and leave your boat parked at our private pier.

Completed in June 2008, this home has two very large covered balconies facing Little Drum Bay. Watch the kids fish on the lighted pier while you gently sway in the futon hammock designed to hold two adults. Read your favorite book, nap or sip on your favorite drink while watching the spectacular sunsets.

Inside you can relax in the spacious and open floor plan designed to accommodate groups of all sizes. The kitchen has all-stainless steel appliances. Gourmet cooks enjoy being able to prepare their favorite dishes, listening to their favorite music while gazing at the views of the bay.

Three bedrooms are upstairs but one is downstairs for the occasional late night arrival or grandpa's snoring.

The beach is only 1.5 blocks away. Load up the chairs, umbrella and cooler and putter over to the beach to build sand castles, wake board, surf-fish or just kick back and enjoy the views. When you come home, rinse off under the outdoor shower with hot and cold water.

At the end of the day, you can play board games with the family, sit out under the stars, make smores over the fire in the firepit or watch movies or TV.

There are a variety of other activities which include local restaurants, putt-putt golf, Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn water park, the confederate air force museum, and The Strand, a world class shopping area in Galveston.

There is no better value in a family vacation that offers this many options.

Why The Owner chose Surfside Beach

Surfside Beach is a quiet community - very family friendly - clean, wide open beaches. All the nitelife, restaurants and shopping are only a short drive away - 20 minutes to Lake Jackson and only 32 minutes to Galveston - but you don't have all the traffic and huge crowds

What makes this house unique

It is just a short walk or drive to the beach and you can still enjoy all the perks of a home on the bay - your own private lighted fishing pier - gorgeous sunsets on the bay - plenty of room in the yard to play and no traffic as on the beach

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed in the house with another married couple. Between us, we had three small kids, and the experience was great. Our favorite part was the private dock. We caught tons of crabs, and fished as well. We caught small red and black drum, croaker, mullet, and lost a huge flounder at the dock. The location was great with a quick trip to the Gulf and tons of room in the house for the kids. The kitchen was spacious and well stocked. We cooked in every night and had family supper at the large table. Just be aware that the house has aged a bunch since the pics on the page, but we had a great time and will be booking again.

GREAT Family Time!

  • 5 of 5

Took the kids and grand-kids and had a great family time! Did the beach thing, fishing, crabbing and most importantly relaxing on the porch! Used the grill provided to cook steaks one night, chicken & sausage another, and burgers another. In between grilled meals enjoyed the Edgewater Grill a couple of nights - delicious food and great service! The owners were very helpful and accommodating in helping us arrange our stay. Can't wait to go back!

Nice location for a relaxing getaway.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at this home. We loved access to the pier and the bay for fishing and crabbing. Beach was so close and was clean and not crowded. We watched the sunset from the beach then the bay every night. There was plenty of space for our family to come and go. Well stocked kitchen.

Our second stay at this beach house. Every bit as wonderful as the first time two years ago! This home is well kept, well stocked kitchen, great beds for sleeping too. Our kids as well as the parents caught many crabs from the dock but no luck catching fish this time. Of course many trips to the beach was a highlight too.

We had 12 people from 3 yrs to 69. Good time enjoyed by all!
