About AJ Gonzalez

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

AJ Gonzalez purchased this house in 2010

Why AJ Gonzalez chose Surfside Beach

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

'Surf Vista' has an incredible outdoor deck. You will love sitting on the deck, watching the waves, listening to the beach sounds and watching the most incredible sunrises right over the Gulf of Mexico.

Beautiful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week of July 4th in Surfside and had a remarkable time at Sand Pebble Vista! It is beautifully decorated and clean. It was the perfect place for our family get-together. We had a blast playing cards on the enormous dining room table!

Fabulous Fourth of July destination

  • 5 of 5

What a great getaway for our multi-family reunion! We really enjoyed the privacy of separate rooms, as well as the open living/dining/kitchen area for family time and entertaining. The well-stocked kitchen was the perfect place to cook up the fresh seafood we were able to catch and purchase at a nearby grocery store. The sunrises over the beach and the morning walks on the sand and surf via the private walkway were very relaxing! The porch with the view were so pleasant in both the morning and the afternoon, and the patio furniture was comfortable for morning coffee and afternoon cocktails. We were able to get away but also enjoy the convenience of cable and wiifi. This is our second year to stay here, and I recommend it to all of my friends in Dallas. Don't miss the Fourth of July Fireworks free-for-all on the north end of the beach!!!

Incredible Experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at the Sand Pebble Vista because it was clean and spacious and had an unforgettable view of the beach. We could never decide our favorite time of the day.....watching the sunrise from our spacious deck? Playing on the beach with our sun during the day? Enjoying our view of the sunset with a glass of wine? It was all better than you can imagine. The home had everything we needed, more than enough bedrooms, tvs, everything. It was a great experience and we will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: The pictures on VRBO were updated in May 2012 and they are very accurate of the property today. We also have a video posted that depicts the property as the renter would see it. We have never received any indication from any other guest regarding fire ants at the property. If this was an issue, the guest should have contacted management immediately. The water in Surfside Beach is not recommended to drink and something the city has been trying to correct. In our rental agreement as well as in our list of things to bring -which we mail out to every guest- it states that we do not recommend drinking the water and guests should bring plenty for cooking and drinking. You will find this same issue with any other home in Surfside Beach. Before the Memorial Day weekend, each home was properly inspected and any repairs necessary were made to all homes. Homes are all inspected at cleaning, although guests are responsible for washing bed linens. Extra blankets can be found in one of the closets at the home and bed linens are changed often at each one of our homes. Because guests are responsible for bed linen cleaning, housekeeping does not meticulously inspect the sheets although we always recommend for guests to bring their own. The ceiling is not falling down in the hall bathroom -or anywhere else in the house-, contrary to this review. We are disappointed that a guest did not find everything satisfactory and that they took the time to post a slanderous review. We always look towards our guests on ways we can improve ourselves and encourage them to let us know.

Peacefull Heaven

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property is the best. I highly recommend this property to all my friends and relatives.

The home was spotless, it is a home away from home. We had a great time, It is so peaceful and relaxing, my son and daughter-in-law, my cousin and my aunt spent time on the beach, collecting shells, and sitting on the deck, talking all night enjoying the breeze and tranquility that this wonderful place offers. I could not ask for more.
