Bedrooms 4
Space 1,753 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 5 nights


About the property

Panoramic Views! * 2nd Home of a Jazz Recording Artist. * #surfsidetx

Spacious rare custom Oceanfront (streetside)/Oceanview 4 bedroom, 2 bath home with the Living Area/Kitchen on the TOP floor! Panoramic views all the way to county beach on a clear day from this Surfside Beach Texas vacation home property! (See photos for exact location on the street. Construction has been completed). It’s the perfect home for people watching... from the luxury of the decks.

This is now our private second home. Everything in here has been brought in from elsewhere. It’s a tranquil place. We come here bringing unusual touches back to the Village of Surfside Beach. We have been Surfside Islanders since 2004... and have been blessed to raise our children on this beach.

This is also the place where we all make things with our hands... wood crafting and building, painting, jewelry, knitting/crocheting, and where I sing/write songs (drives my family a bit nuts because the acoustics are lovely in the living area). It’s a bustling creative oasis at times as well!

It’s a good place to come together. Versatile yet upscale. The kitchen is absolutely gourmet, including many small appliances and large pots. There is a generous amount of spices available to you. There is nothing you lack.

(PLEASE NOTE: We have a water softener system and an RO system installed (in the kitchen area). This is a RARE feature on this island. CLEAN Drinking Water is a must! Do NOT drink the water on the island. PERIOD).

... and a slice of heaven on earth when that sun rises in the morning...

Our family’s hope is that when you stay in our home, you ‘feel' the love here.

You are surrounded by Love.

May your heart leave full. :-)


We DO have a 30 AMP RV hookup, underneath the home, in bay “K”. And we can rent that space for an extra charge, please email or call on that.

*** Please CLICK 'Rates', and review our detailed rates section.

*** A longterm lease would be considered during the MID/LOW seasons.

*** We do not accept Prom party reservations. Renter must be age of 25+.

Please note: ALL reservations require a valid driver's license photo, and our signed Rental Agreement along with deposited funds.

This will insure a proper quote. ALL funds must be cleared by our bank prior to check-in. Or other cash arrangements can be arranged. Thank you! ~ m

About Maribel Hill, co-owner

We have been island owners in Surfside Beach, TX, since 2004.You could say our hearts pulsate to the rhythm of the rolling sea. We are city folk... Dallas is our primary home. Good work keeps us there for now, but we commute regularly... serving to make the Village of Surfside Beach a thriving community.

God has blessed us beyond measure. Our prayer is that as you stay and enjoy our home, you will be rejuvenated by the clean/upscale comforts and appointments that it provides. We desire to make you a valued client, and not a customer. Blessings to you and yours.

Pefect Home for Families or Groups, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The Mustard Seed is located right next to the beach, with great views. The home is very comfortable, the beds were great! The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, cooking utensils and pots and pans. A large kitchen table allows all to eat together, also great for playing cards and games at night. The large family room made it easy to hang out together as a family. Washer and Dryer provided opportunity to wash our towels after a day at the beach. We have stayed at many VRBO's and we were very impressed with all the dishes and cooking items including crock pot, blender and toaster. The owner was easy to work with and very quick to respond to any questions. We would highly recommend the home to our friends and hope to stay at the Mustard Seed again.

Excellent and as Nice as Advertised

  • 5 of 5

Very well kept, clean, and well outfitted. Beds were very comfortable. We had one minor maintenance item which was fixed within 2 hours of letting Maribel know of it. Would definitely recommend the house. Check in / out was very efficient.

Great home and location

  • 5 of 5

This is a nice house right next to the beach. The house was very cozy and well kept. Great views. Our family enjoyed the stay and was perfect for us. We stayed at the beach most of the time and it was nice to just walk back to the house whenever we needed.

Great beach house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Surfside Beach in this home. The kitchen was well stocked, the beds were comfortable and the views were beautiful from the porch. The family room and dining room fit our group well during meal time and down time. Just a few steps from our door to the beach. We hope to stay here again.

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Mustard Seed for a girls weekend. There were 6 of us, and we were all comfortable and enjoyed all the perks. The beds were very comfortable (and I have a bad back and am often scared of rental beds, but these were great). The kitchen had everything you need for a gourmet meal. The bathrooms were clean and well-appointed. My favorite was sitting on the wraparound deck and listening to the waves. This house is perfect for a family, group trip or even a romantic getaway!
