About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 11-12)

Come experience the Hideout’s incredible views and relax to the sound of the surf and sea breeze. Enjoy the ocean and beach views from every common area in the house or walk out on our 60’ deck for breathtaking sunrises, some shade in the afternoon and unbelievable sunsets in the evening. Beach access is just steps away over a small catwalk, and is actually closer than many “beachfront” rentals.

This bright and relaxing home has 4 bedrooms and an upstairs loft perfect for kids or a single adult. The Hideout features 3 queen bedrooms and a bunk room (2 bunks) with its own 20” TV and DVD player. The huge living room, kitchen and dining areas are perfect for entertaining and socializing, all while enjoying the ocean views.

If you enjoy privacy, this is the place for you. No day trippers setting up shop in this front yard! The Hideout features a backyard large enough to set up a game of volleyball or play horseshoes while you wait for dinner to cook on the charcoal grill.

The Kitchen is fully stocked with basic appliances (microwave, oven/range, dishwasher, coffee maker, blender and toaster), utensils, glassware, cookware, and plates/bowls with plenty of extra cabinet space for food. The living room features a large sectional and a loveseat, 40 inch flat screen with HD digital antenna, DVD player and DVD library, and speaker connection for your iPhone (or any audio device with a headphone jack). There is also a laundry room with full-size washer and dryer that is available for use, as is a charcoal grill and BBQ utensils.

All bed linens and bath towels are provided at no extra charge, but not for use on the beach. Guests should provide their own beach towels and beach chairs. The Hideout is a child-friendly house with lots of space and enclosed deck with latching gates. Sorry, no pets allowed. Minimum age to rent is 25.

We hope you love the Hideout as much as we do. It is truly our “happy place”.

About Eric Schuchardt

Our family works and plays hard in Houston, so we enjoy coming to Surfside on the weekend to relax and just have fun on the beach. As soon as we cross the bridge and see the ocean, our stresses just melt away.

Eric Schuchardt purchased this house in 2010

Why Eric Schuchardt chose Gulf Coast

Our family fell in love with quaint Surfside and couldn't believe the amazing views from this house. We can relax on the porch while watching the waves and feeling the ocean breeze, and at the same time enjoying peace and quiet.

What makes this house unique

The Hideout is a perfect place for family and friends to gather with plenty of rooms and huge living areas, all overlooking the water. Kids love exploring the loft and large, gated deck. We love to cook as well, and our kitchen is large enough for multiple people to cook and barstools at the island for onlookers who like to sample!

Great Surfside House

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly what we were looking for. Had everything we needed: great space, great view, and extremely close to the beach.

Would absolutely recommend staying here and we hope to be back next year.

Host was extremely accommodating with our hectic schedule.

Thanks again!

Great Beach house with lots of room!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great beach house! The house has a large living area and perfect for families looking to spend time together but yet have some personal space too. The loft was a bit smaller than it looked in the picture but was still great for our little boys. Great location, easy to find, easy access to the beach via a short path to the walkover nextdoor, lots of room for kids to play inside & outside, very cold A/C that was nice to come in to after a day in the sun. Angela was easy to work with and quick to communicate. We did have a couple of small issues with the stove/oven and the dishwasher. The oven had something spilled in it prior to our arrival and smoked badly when we turned it on and the stove tripped the breaker a couple of times. We called the housekeeper and were instructed how to reset the breaker. The dishwasher kept cutting off and not finishing the cycle. This was minor however and we just washed dishes by hand the rest of the week. Other than these 2 issues, overall we had a fantastic stay and will definitely book here again.

Right on time

  • 4 of 5

The beach house was a great place to stay, however, I feel that the maid services gets over on the owners. My friends and I really enjoyed our stay. We will return.
