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 prior to 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 also enjoy a home in Surfside.

AJ purchased this house in 2008

Why AJ chose Gulf Coast

Located beach front on the "Pedestrian Only" area of the beach. This pedestrian block is currently the only block in surfside that has sand in front of the homes. Compared to Galveston, Surfside Beach is closer to Houston and has much less traffic. The beach is cleaner and is much better for boogie boarding, surfing, fishing or boating.

What makes this house unique

'LIFE IS GOOD!' is on very popular 'Pedestrian Only' Beach in Surfside, TX. 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.

The BEST Spot on the Pedestrian Beach! Awesome View and Waves Were So Relaxing. We'll Be Back Soon!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights in this super cute cottage; each morning was a new blessing, and every night was enchanting.

The inside is as cute as can be with its “Life Is Good” theme. The house is clean and homey.

But this vacation spot's most prized possession is it's covered and uncovered deck that overlooks the Gulf of Mexico. Not only does the sun rise directly in front of it, but the moon, too, commands you to stare out at the ocean all night long.

Overall, this is a fantastic place to escape from reality. The sandy beach is steps from the house. We cannot wait to return!

We enjoyed every moment. We especially enjoyed that location. So close to the beach.

We will definitely stay here again.

Life is Good! We had a great experience here. There was so much to enjoy.

  • 5 of 5

Each morning, we were able to take in gorgeous sunrises and a few sightings of dolphins swimming by. You are guaranteed to see dolphin from the jetty when a ship passes through. Talk about an "awe" moment. Not to mention all of the different types of marine life the fishermen catch! Plan to go to the jetty to see the sun go down, it'​s beautiful and there is a play area if you have little ones. The convenience of walking from shoreline to the house is a huge plus. I was thankful and felt safe with our two toddlers because this part of the beach does not allow cars on the sand. Our family enjoyed breakfast, lunch, and dinner on the deck while beach watching. At night, we grabbed the flashlights for some fun exploring near the shore. It was great to be able to see stars, not like in the city. We have many wonderful photos of our stay and look forward to adding more! We will be back.

Great Time Had By All!!

  • 5 of 5

A great time was had by all! So nice with many kiddo's to be right on the beach. Only thing I would say negative is that you have to bring everything with you. Slightly more info about specifics items folks need to bring would have been super helpful. But now we know. Despite that, as I said before great time had by all. We'll be back!!

Life is good was a great house in the perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Surfside and won't be our last! We slept comfortably with our large family of 7 (2 adults and 5 of our kids ages 2-18). The dishwasher worked great and the washer and dryer did as well. We absolutely loved the covered deck and the location of the house. The beach was not crowded and the water was clear. Lots of seashells to be found! Our family had the best vacation, even better than our trip to Cabo...waters in Cabo were too rough! Will definitely be back next summer!!

Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

The locations was incredible. The house had plenty of room for our party of 3 adults and 6 kids. The one thing I would suggest is bring your own sheets, with the humidity it took forever to wash and dry the sheets on the morning we checked out. Overall a great stay, would definitely return.
