About the property

There is a easy walk-over access to the beach, it only take you few steps within a minute walking distance from the house to the beach, and the nearby sea food restaurant on the beach just one block away within 5 min walking distance. The spacious living/kitchen area is open and is perfect for a family gathering. Kitchen has bar counter with bar tools which provides extra sitting for dinning. Large master bedroom suite have large master bath to the right, and the back two bedrooms share a bath open to the hall. This newly build beach house is beautifully furnished, equipped with full kitchen, fine dining ware, cook utensils, wash/drier, free linen/towels are also provided free of use, is perfect for a family vacation.

This welcoming and inviting home is clean, well maintained, and beautifully decorated. You will feel like as if you were in a home away from home. We have a full kitchen with all of the amenities needed to make your own meals. The home also had quite a few games, many books, and a whole lot of kid friendly movies.

Your day will start with having a fresh cup of coffee on the patio every morning watching sunrise. During the day you will have beach fun all day: swimming, picking shell, and building up sand castle. By the end of the day the deck will be shaded by the house from the afternoon sun and catches the cool ocean breezes, you can lay back with a drink and enjoy the ocean breeze in the shade, listing to the waves and watching sun goes down. In the evening some chose to have a walk & talk on the beach while others chose to have fun with board games or curl up on couches watch a movie to relax.

What makes this house unique

Beach views from large wrap-around deck as well as master bedroom window, dining table, and living room. Large open deck is perfect for taking a sun bathing and enjoy the beautiful beach view! Surfside beach is one of cleanest beach on gulf coast which also preserved more sea creatures, and with much less resort, condos built on, it is a natural beauty, reviewed as “a relatively undiscovered gem” by the travelers. There are miles of quiet beaches to walk, ride bikes, and play on. Lake Jackson town is just a short 15 min drive from the beach and has shopping center, mall, movies and restaurants. There are also many places to eat in the village too. Small shops nearby for essentials and rentals of surfboards, golf carts etc. A much laid back beach and lifestyle here, perfect for a family vacation and weekend getaway.

Great Beach

  • 4 of 5

Had great time, house was comfortable and open. Beware of grass burs , best to take shoes off at door. Close to beach ! Best thing was we were able to go to beach in AM then walk back to house take break ( nap for small ones) then go back in eve , just left tent on beach, no problems .Air conditioner kept us cool, all in all perfect family reunion ! Loved little surf shop near by , Bingo's !

I would recommend to friends . We never could get Wifi to work ,

Ps couldn't get coffee maker to work, and one of folding cots was broken .

Stayed Aug 2016 Thanks SLJ Texarkana

Very nice stay.

  • 4 of 5

Overall the a very nice stay. House was clean and well appointed. Jennifer's what to bring list was spot on. Near the end of the season so the house does need a little touch up paint but didn't bother us one bit. Short walk to beach was a great. Nice breeze in the deck in the evening. Will rent again.

The stay was wonderful. Lack of customer service.

  • 4 of 5

Adorable beach house with a nice view. Nice decor. Perfect distance from the beach. Plenty of room.

Stocked with many supplies and essentials.

Master bedroom mattress and mattress pad has multiple stains. Called Jennifer multiple times after arriving to the beach house late as had trouble opening lockbox. We finally got in, but no call back from Jennifer at any point during our stay.

Great location with easy access to the water

  • 5 of 5

The property was overall a nice 3 BDRM/2bath facility close to the water. The owner was very prompt and responsive to anything I needed. She was understanding when my bank security blocked one of the payments. The location was great. I previously lived in this area, and I was coming in to visit family. Instead of getting a hotel and making lots of stops, I rented this place and family came to us at their convenience. It was nice to have a meeting place.

I was concerned that there was not a sit-down dinner table in the photographs, but there was a nice quality folding table that worked perfectly. There was plenty of room (and chairs) on the wrap around deck and beneath the home for gathering and visiting.

Please do read through the "what to bring" document shared. There are absolutely no consumables in the home. There were plenty of kitchen dishes for cooking, but if you plan to do a meal, consider ALL items you will need such as foil, spices, charcoal, etc... The same goes for the bathroom. Don't forget soap, shampoo, toilet paper, etc... I would also suggest bringing your own linens and towels if its easy for you to pack. It would have been easier than washing all that we used at the end of our stay.

Washing would not have been too bad, but the dryer took a long time to get the items dry. We were packed and ready to make our road trip home, but we had to wait an extra couple of hours for the dryer to get the job done. I left the closet door open as one of the other reviewers suggested, but it still took a while.

We also had to make a shopping trip for all of the consumables needed. I travel often and stay in hotels. I guess I've been spoiled and I pack lightly. We hit a local retailer as soon as we arrived, and spent a couple of unexpected hours gathering supplies. I was disappointed initially, but then I found the document that listed what we should bring. It was accurate. Coffee was not listed there, so don't forget that.

The bug spray smell was very strong (no bugs), so we opened up the windows as soon as we arrived to air it out. It worked fine. There were also ceiling fans in all rooms to help move it out.

In summary, bring everything you need in the kitchen and bathrooms. Bring linens and towels. Don't plan on washing clothes or towels unless you have 2-3 hours to dry each load. Overall, we were very happy with the stay, and we would rent this place again. Thanks, Jennifer.

Nice place.

  • 3 of 5

The house is new and just a few feet from the beach. Unfortunately, our stay coincided with Hurricane Patricia. Our island had fierce winds and heavy rain so we weren't able to enjoy the outdoors, but the house was secure. The lockbox on the front door is very difficult to open. Also, be aware that the stairs are 18 very steep steps. The house was pretty clean except for baseboards and floors. There are only two chairs and a sofa in the living area. Be warned that the sofa is cushy but you sink pretty low into the cushions making it awkward for some people to get off of it. The chairs are rather rigid and have very little cushioning left. The linens are worn and mismatched and we weren't able to find fitted sheets for all the beds. There seemed to be plenty of dishware and cooking utensils. The towel bar in the hall bathroom is still broken and cannot be used. There are NO twin beds as stated on the website. All of the extra beds are single size rollaways and are stored in the closets along with the extra bedding, which limited space to hang clothes. I'm not sure if a rollaway bed would fit in any of the bedrooms, but you could get them in the living room. The washer and dryer are old. The dryer wasn't vented and it took forever to dry a load of sheets. The TV in the queen bedroom is too low to be seen from the bed. It needs to be on a higher table. I think a lot of these issues could be corrected if the owner or property manager would visit the house personally and not just rely on the cleaning crew.

I don't recommend the Purple Cow restaurant. It's right around the corner from the house, but the food was only so-so and the staff weren't very friendly. The Red Snapper Inn is just a few blocks down the road from the house and the food and staff were excellent. THERE IS NO WI-FI available but the house has Direct TV.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank you for taking your time reviewing your stay. Due to the salt corrosion, we need to lubricate the lock often…we will take care of it. After summer rental, some of our sheets got mixed up with guest’s own sheets, we will check the sheets and towels and restock them ASAP. We will take care the dryer venting, and TV hanger, also check up the sofa condition and have them replaced if needed. The WiFi speed is very slow on island and not good enough for game play… smart phone is good enough to read email and surf web, so most people does not care the WiFi. We will install WiFi if more guests ask about it. Thanks again for the heads up, we will definitely follow the issues you mentioned and have them taken care of.
