Space 1,440 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


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 Surfside Beach

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!

Summer Fun

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this house, it was a few steps from the beach where we could walk over. It was an enjoyable vacation for my family.

New Vacation Destination

  • 4 of 5

The place was nice (could use some updating) and provided easy access to the beach. There were a couple of reasons 5 stars weren't given for the overall rating. First, was because neither of the sliding glass doors to the patio worked. Both were taped off with a sign that said "Broken - Do Not Use." The second reason was the lack of adequate TV. The advertisement states Digital/Satellite TV, however it is simply an antenna which only shows local programming out of Houston and no cable channels. Overall my family and I enjoyed our stay here and will definitely consider this place again on a return visit.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

Property manager was not aware of our arrival and house was not ready. Tammy put it in high gear and got a crew there quickly to clean and make ready. House is cute and spacious. Great location with water views but far enough that we didn't track a ton of sand in with us. I would recommend The Hideout for anyone wanting a beach house for a great value!

It was a great house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as it was described, nicely stocked with necessities, and the beach was barely a walk away. We accidentally parked at the neighbors house and the owners of this house nicely communicated with me to move our cars. We had so much fun and it was honestly one of the best weekends of my life. I would definitely recommend this home, it was perfect.

Not Maintained and Dirty.

  • 2 of 5

House had a good location but looks like it is not maintained/cleaned regularly. I have pictures of roaches and spider webs in the house. Apart from very dirty shower curtains, one of the 2 bathrooms had clogging in it and water was not draining properly. Oven was unusable and extremely dirty, it was heavily rusted. Seems like a very old structure which needs upgrades and cleaning. Overall i only liked the location so giving 2 stars.

Owner's Response: We are so very sorry the home didn't meet your expectations. We have the home treated regularly for pests and thoroughly cleaned after each guest. Sand and salt are of course natural factors we battle! I only wish we had an opportunity to address your concerns during your stay. We will be performing an additional check to examine and remedy any issues.
