Two story beach home located in the Surfside beach community. Beautiful views from all sides of our upper deck. This home is fully loaded for all your sun and fun needs. You will find T.V.s in every room and all the comforts of home. We have a big kitchen and dining area that is equipped with everything you need to enjoy a wonderful grilled steak, or seafood dinner.

Located within a short, two minute walk of the Surfside pedestrian beach where local surfers can be seen both summer and winter. Lots of opportunities for family fun at Jetty Park. Take a stroll to the end of the walkway and watch the dolphins at play.

We are close to the popular restaurants in the area. Enjoy tasty hamburgers and onion rings from the Purple Cow, or a festive night out at the Red Snapper Restaurant. Travel down the Blue Water Highway to the public crabbing pier or charter a deep sea fishing tour. Or maybe you just want to soak up the sun on one of our two decks and enjoy the sights and sounds of a beach get-away.

About Barbara Klimpt

We are a family that enjoys all the relaxing elements of the beach. It is truly our escape place.

Barbara Klimpt purchased this house in 2009

Why Barbara Klimpt chose Gulf Coast

We enjoy the quiet and peaceful atmosphere of Surfside Village. Our house is located about a 2 minute walk from the pedestrian beach down a paved road. The village has a family atmosphere and is close to shopping and restaurants. We enjoy sitting on our top deck and watching sunrises and sunsets. We also have views of ships docking and leaving Freeport Harbor and the Intracoastal Canal!

What makes this house unique

Sun and fun with the grandchildren. Dining at our favorite seafood restaurants. (On the River in Freeport and The Red Snapper In Surfside are the best!) Visiting with family and friends, walking on the beach and a peaceful atmosphere to take us away from our day to day routine!

Not Great.

  • 1 of 5

I have stayed at several VRBO's. I have had mostly good experiences until this one......We had to go buy toilet paper after the first day. There were no paper towels at all.

Before you leave the property, this one requires you to wash, dry, fold and put away all towels and sheets that are used during your stay. This is certainly not a typical request. I mean who wants to do laundry on vacation? They also ask you to take the trash cans to the street......Unfortunately it was not worth the price we paid what so ever.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry that you were disappointed in your stay at our Surfside Beach Property. We make every effort to provide a clean and well maintained home for your enjoyment. We do not charge extra for the use of our linens and towels as most owners do, and we provide laundry detergent for your use. Guests may bring their own towels and linens if they prefer not to contend with the laundry. During our busy seasons we also ask that you not leave full garbage cans for our next guests to contend with. We provide two full size cans on wheels and it is just a short distance to the road for pickup. We do normally leave a roll of paper towels and a few rolls of toliet paper, but guests are asked to provide paper goods and toiletries for themselves. We feel that our house is very well equipped for most of your needs, and we have never had these types of complaints before. We do not live near our rental and we do have a very reliable housekeeper who has the house ready for occupancy within 3 hours after a departure, but sometimes guests are not aware of how difficult it is to handle back to back bookings and keep everyone satisfied. We do hear your complaints and will take them under consideration for future guests.

The beach house was a very wonderful place to spend a family vacation. The beach house was everything that Barbara and John had said that it would be it had everything to make you feel like you was at home . Isn't a very relaxing neighborhood we had a great time. We made many new family memories. literally the only thing that I could say was a negative would be the fact that it wasn't right on the water other than that everything was great. Absolutely fantastic

Great place for the family!

  • 5 of 5

Thirteen years ago, my family, and I were heading home from a trip to Disney. At the time, my twin girls were five and my son was fifteen. We decided to sight see and drove along the coast from Galveston to Corpus Christi. In doing so, we came upon this little jewel amongst the backdrop of the refineries. We talked about coming back and visit. Well it took thirteen years, and regret that it took this long. waiting for us was a cool and exceptionally clean house, the beds were very comfortable, and everything worked. The beach was clean of seaweed and at night, we enjoyed watching the ships pulling into the channel. We will be back again…
