Welcome to the Village of Surfside Beach Texas, an incorporated coastal community on the Texas Gulf Coast. Located approximately 60 miles south of Houston Texas, Surfside Beach is a community steeped in rich history, with miles of beautiful beaches. Surfside Beach is a charming community with beachfront houses, canal houses, and local businesses. Void of skyscrapers and high rises Surfside has the charm of coastal communities of yesteryear, with modern conveniences and a vision of the future.

Surfside Beach is considered the Cradle of Texas where the 'Original 300 Settlers' first set foot on Texas soil. Home to the famous Fort Velasco, Surfside is the location where the first battle before the war for Texas Independence was fought and where Santa Ana signed the Treaty of Velasco recognizing Texas as an Independent country.

Other activities include fishing, birding, boating, beachcombing, golfing and surfing. Nearby is fishing charters, museums, Sea Center Texas and much more. Take a leisurely drive to historic Galveston where you can visit Moody Gardens and The Pyramid Rain Forest, the world famous Strand, Schlitterbahn Water Park or many other tourist attractions.

About AJ

We personally enjoy our home in Surfside Beach every chance we get.

AJ purchased this house in 2010

Why AJ chose Surfside Beach

Compared to Galveston, Surfside Beach is closer to Houston and has much less traffic. The beach is cleaner and it is much better for surfing, fishing and boating.

What makes this house unique

Large private deck and beach right in front. Perfect for breakfast and easy access to the water.

Amazing Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

We brought our Granddaughter for her first trip to the beach and what a magical time she had. The home was beautiful and has everything you need to feel right at home. Evenings were spent on the patio enjoying the breeze and the peacefulness that comes with being away from the city. If visiting Surfside,

you'll definitely want to consider this beachhouse for your home away from home.

We didn't want to leave and are already planning our next visit.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay with your granddaughter on her first visit to the beach. The block on Beach Drive is truly a perfect place on the pedestrian-only beach for people with children. Please come again and when booking, ask for your return customer discount.

Nice big deck- beach front

  • 5 of 5

House was very clean and comfortable. Walked across the street to the beach. Wasn’t busy since it’s October but I could see it being a busy street in the summer. Charcoal grill available. The deck was my favorite part- some of it open with lounge chairs for sunning, and some shaded. Cute beachy decor. Would definitely stay here again.

A Beacon of Light on the Texas Coast

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends enjoyed a wonderful weekend getaway at Beacon Light. The house is very well maintained with all the amenities that you can think of! This beachfront property is the best on Beach Dr! We were just steps away from the beach and enjoyed the water. The weather was perfect as well as the fishing. I highly recommend this house to anyone that would like to get away and enjoy life!

Most terrible experience we have ever had

  • 1 of 5

This was the most ill equipped and ill managed property we have ever stayed yet. The lacked basic amenities like dish wash liquid. When we first booked the house we were told they would email us access instruction closer to the stay but I didn't hear from them till the day of so emailed them and just got told that the location of key. When we got to the house it smelled stayed the carpet in living room was super dirty and the master restroom had someone hair on the floor. The wifi password displayed till work so I emailed them and never got a reply. Few other things - the dish washer was rusted, the non stick pans all scratched up and they didn't even have trash bags for us to take trash out.

To top all this they didn't refund our total deposit because they claimed that there were some burn marks on the deck made by us. But the burn marks were there when we got to the property and just assumed the previous client did something. If I had any idea the that we would be blamed for something we didn't do by the management company and owners I would have taken pictures of the entire property as soon as we got there to have proof of how it was. I have complained to vrbo regarding the owners being unethical and charging us for something we didn't do and they are looking into the matter.

Stay at this property at your own risk.

Great property & location but management could be better & make sure to read the fine print

  • 3 of 5

Love the house, location, and area. But we couldn't get into the property when we arrived, and when they say minimum supplies are provided they mean it. No towels (bath or kitchen), toilet paper, paper towels, detergent (though expected to wash all bed linens), or cleaning supplies (though expected to clean before leaving). The house had not been cleaned when we arrived and we literally had to vacuum my sons bathroom before letting him use it. The renters before had obviously not cleaned before they left, but we wondered if anyone had checked the house before our arrival or not, as the whole house needed attention. The house was cutely decorated and comfortable, but bedspreads and shams had obviously not been cleaned in a while either.

Car: necessary

'Beacon Light!' is on very popular 'Pedestrian Only' Beach in Surfside, TX.It is also on the only pedestrian block that currently has a sandy beach in front of the house to set up your chairs and umbrellas It's very peaceful. You will love sitting on the deck, watching the waves and surfers, listening to the beach sounds and watching the most incredible sun rises right over the Gulf of Mexico.
