Welcome to Desiderata, the perfect vacation home for your family.
This beautiful beachfront family home features 4 bedrooms and 4.5 baths, a fully stocked kitchen with reverse-osmosis in the kitchen for cooking and drinking, this system is connected to the ice and water on the refrigerator in the kitchen, Surfside water out of the tap is not safe to drink. The utility room is complete with washer, dryer, utility sink, 2nd refrigerator and a microwave. The 2-story living room includes a wood-burning fireplace, 50” TV and full wall of windows. Because of our proximity to the beach and sand dune our driveway is crushed limestone so foot attire is recommended when strolling to the beach, or going to your car. Every room in this newly built home opens onto a deck for spectacular views of the gulf. Our main deck surrounds three sides of the home with multiple sitting areas to enjoy family and friends or your meal cooked in the kitchen or on the grill outside.
The Captain’s Quarters, located on the main floor, features a king size bed, TV and an en suite bathroom with Roman tub and a large walk-in shower with a rain shower head. Upstairs you will find the First Mate’s Cabin, a second master with a king size bed, TV and private bathroom. The Queen’s Quarters features two queen beds, TV, bathroom and a large closet. Your crew won’t be disappointed with the bunk room, also with a private bath, two bunk beds twin over full and sleeps 6. And all bedrooms have remote control ceiling fans. The upstairs landing is not only a great place for taking in the view, but it also features a pull out twin bed. There is also a twin bed with a TV under the stairs for that allusive teenager to stow away! Linens and towels are provided with the house.
Just blocks away you will find local dining and a snow cone stand owned by fellow Surfside residents. In a quick 20 minute drive, you can gather all the groceries and supplies you need in Lake Jackson where you can shop at Walmart, Kroger or H-E-B. Right down the road is a crabbing pier, and Galveston is only 40 miles away. Evening campfires are allowed on the beach and night time crab “hunting” on the beach is fun for the whole family (don't forget your flash lights). Fishing is allowed but does require a permit, there is beach parking for an inexpensive annual fee. Whether you are ready for a summer getaway or a winter break from the hustle and bustle of city life, come to Surfside Beach.
