Surfside Beach 2 minute walk, about 500'

Just relaxing on the deck, or hanging out on the beach are the best activities here. You can also rent golf carts or horses to ride on the beach. Great fishing within walking distance. Surf fishing, jetty fishing or bay fishing available via wading, kayaking or boating. Boat launch located just 1/2 mile away. If you seek more excitement you can take the beautiful beach drive down the Bluewater HWY across San Luis Pass and on into Galveston for a day at the Pleasure Pier.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We are a working couple from Katy, TX who love the beach. We really enjoy the laid back attitude of Surfside and the friendly people down here. Getting together with family and friends, fishing, boating, swimming, body surfing, playing with the kids in the sand, sunbathing, walking on the beach, eating fresh seafood: we love to do all these things at our second home in Surfside.

Why the Owner Chose Surfside Beach, TX, USA:
The view from the deck and the sound of the waves hitting the beach sold us on this property. We love this new home and made an offer on the house the same day we saw it. The house came fully furnished so we were able to spend our time making improvements, buying new linens and towels, gel foam mattress toppers and adding many beach themed decorations. As far as getting here, Surfside is an easy drive from Houston and a much more enjoyable trip than taking I45 to Galveston. Just head south on HWY 288 to Lake Jackson. Surfside is just 8 miles past Lake Jackson. Through fishing adventures and weekend pleasure trips we looked at many beach towns in Texas and fell in love with Surfside.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home has beds for 12 people and is ideal for two families. We have been entertaining family, and friends with children and having a blast on the beach and relaxing on the deck overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. This home has a great open floor plan with plenty of dining and entertaining room. We added satellite TV and WIFI, and a hot/cold water outdoor shower for your enjoyment. The fishing in this area is great, with a boat launch nearby. You have plenty of room to bring your own boat, jet skis, surfboards, bicycles, or any other toys you enjoy. Just a short drive to Freeport will take you to a fresh seafood market and grocery store if you're cooking in. Otherwise there are several nearby bars and restaurants you can go to if you feel like getting out.
