Property type house

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 1/2 Baths, (Sleeps 13)

Beautiful house is beach front on Middle Beach in Surfside. You cannot get any closer. Three-bedroom house, full kitchen, walk across the dune bridge and you are on the beach. Relax on the deck each evening and enjoy the beach breeze and the beautiful view of the surf.

This house just completed a full renovation. There are games for kids, DVD, HDTV in every room, cable television, Wifi access, and more. These extras plus the beach make it a great place to take the family or have a reunion.

Surfside is a small, quaint beach town where the simple things in life can be enjoyed. Shelling, fishing, and days just sitting on the beach make for a wonderful vacation. And when you venture out away from our paradise, you can find Kitty's Purple Cow for a great hamburger or a small town breakfast. Red Snapper Inn is also just a bike ride away with great fresh seafood.

Just an hour south of Houston. Send an email to request more pictures. Can also coordinate a second house right behind mine to accommodate larger groups. Marven Gardens and Mello Yellow both can sleep 12.

About Gary Barber

I live in Houston and love the beach house. I was born and raised on the beaches of Florida, and this water front house keeps the passion alive. Hope you will treat the house as your own, take care of it, and enjoy it as much as I do. There is nothing like time on the beach. You will see what I mean with this home.

Why Gary Barber chose Surfside Beach

Front Row with a great breeze and a nice deck. Great place to relax and enjoy the beach. I have renovated the house, adding new A/C, HDTV's in ever room, new furniture throughout the house, including a King Size bed in the Master, a new Queen bunk in one of the secondary rooms, painted all rooms, and added an outside shower for convenience after a long day on the beach. In 2012, added new floors (hard wood pergo), new granite kitchen counter, new dishwasher and stove.

What makes this house unique

Front Row view speaks for itself. There is nothing between you and the ocean except sand.

Excellent beachfront property

  • 5 of 5

This property is a great option for true beachfront. Very well laid out, clean, and equipped with everything you need. Terrific flat screen TVs for cheering the Astros in the World Series😊?! Super comfortable bedding! My dog loved being out on the deck (gated so he couldn’t get out). The ONLY suggestion I would have is bring your own comfy deck chairs!

We had a wonderful stay at Casablanca in September. We were very comfortable with 11 people. The view from the deck is awesome! Short walk to the beach. We will all definitely be back next year!

Comfortable beach front house at Surfside Beach, Texas.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casablanca Beach House over Christmas Holidays in order to celebrate with our Texas kinfolks. The house was comfortable and the view from the deck amazing. Beach access for long walks was easy. We enjoyed mild weather, interesting birding and beachcombing, and a chance to visit with extended family. We had no issues with the house, and the owner and local property managers were immediately responsive to questions. Thanks for a great family vacation!
