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 Gulf Coast

Front Row with a great breeze and a nice deck. Great place to relax and enjoy the beach. In November 2015, I 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.

Relaxing and enjoying the family

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casablanca! We had all the comforts of being at home plus the beachfront view and it just made for a perfect venue to relax with our family. I definitely want to stay here again.

Amazing location and views!!!

  • 5 of 5

We (7 adults) enjoyed an amazing week at Casablanca! The house was perfect, comfortable, clean and with a great kitchen for those who choose to cook. We took advantage of the Weber grill and cooked numerous meals. Even the rain (3 of our 7 days) didn't diminish our enjoyment.

A must try for those who want to cook is Captain Mark's Seafood Market in Freeport, hands down the cleanest fish market I've ever seen. We also enjoyed a meal at Pirate's Alley.

The master bedroom and 2nd bedroom have very comfortable beds. The living room accommodates quite a few people for eating, entertaining or watching movies during the rain.

Gary (owner) and the management company were very responsive and a pleasure to communicate with. The only suggestion we have for improvement is perhaps some new, more comfortable deck chairs.

We plan to be back!!!

Great house in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casablanca. The house was clean and had plenty of room for our large group. The best part was the large deck overlooking the beach with easy access to the water. Only one small issue--there were no extra trash bags, dish soap or toilet paper provided, so we had to make a run to the store to get those items. We would definitely return for our next family reunion.
