Great place for a group of 10, very private.

  • 5 of 5

This is out in the boonies, but we loved the privacy. Probably 150 feet from the beach across a rarely traveled road. The beach is very private, but it is natural, not raked, but still good for sitting out listening to the waves. Great view of the gulf, and a very nice looking interior, tile floor with a large master with an awesome bathroom, and a great 2nd bedroom upstairs facing the ocean also. The 2 upstairs bedrooms on the bayou side share a bathroom (but each have their own toilet) and are a little smaller and only have full beds, but are nice. Great open area downstairs for gathering and cooking with a bedroom and bath on that level. Nice laundry room going to the back porch for a good view of the bayou and sunsets. Good parking, and overall very nice.

HUGE

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect and so roomy. The master bathroom shower could fit 5 people and the water temp stayed hot. The wifi isn't the best but who need internet when you are on vacation? The kids loved walking over to the beach and looking at the water however that beach isn't very well maintained. We went to 2 different beaches and NOLA during our stay. This was one of the best family vacations we have ever had!!!!! We can't wait to return.

Surfside I

  • 4 of 5

The interior of the house was well maintained and comfortable. The location was very nice.

The stairs on the outside are in dire need of repair. There was a broken step that we all had to watch carefully. The outside porch and steps are in need of repair and a paint job. Fortunately we brought chairs. There were only 3 that functioned on the porch. The other two (white plastic) were broken. I feel this is a shortcoming. 8 adults sharing 3 chairs to sit out on the porch?????????? It's hard to enjoy such a beautiful setting while standing.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at Surfside I. How unfortunate that you didn't let me know there was a problem with the steps. It would have been taken care of immediately. They have been fixed and in the process of being painted. Thanks for the heads up about the chairs. I hope you will stay with us again in the future and if you find anything out of order, will let me know.

Great place for large group

  • 4 of 5

Surfside 1 proved to be a great fit for our family. We had 10-12 people on different days with room for everyone. Being able to have everyone under one roof without putting 4-6 to a room helped make our stay so comfortable. You are only 15-30 minutes from shopping, casinos, parks etc. We found the house clean with adequate linens and towels. The kitchen is set up to allow both several cooks and little ones running around at the same time. The pantry stored everything we brought easily. My only complaint was that the coffee maker could be updated. The views are wonderful and the we loved having our own little beach. The two front upstairs bedrooms (both with en suite baths)have fantastic views and we enjoyed watching the sun come up and set from the deck. The other two upstairs rooms have a connecting bath which worked well for family with little ones. The only down side is also why the views are so wonderful: there are a lot of stairs! Everyone enjoyed our time there to the point of already planning a repeat visit.

Awesome Location for a Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful time celebrating Christmas with our four children, spouses and grandchildren. The Surfside I house was very spacious and we were happy to have adequate bed space for everyone. The kitchen was very nice, with it's preparation island and wraparound serving bar. With the twelve of us staying three nights, the refrigerator got packed full, but it worked flawlessly and we seemed to have enough ice from the ice maker for everyone. The shelf space in the pantry was fantastic for holding all the food supplies we brought.

The shower in the master bedroom was awesome! It was great to have lots of water pressure, and the water was plenty hot enough for everyone. Having TV's in several bedrooms in addition to the big one in the downstairs living room was great for the various couples and kids. Having a laundry chute to drop things for washing directly to the laundry room from upstairs was a nice feature.

The big recliner in the living room was super comfortable; we only regret that we never discovered how to make it recline! While it was good to have WiFi Internet service, renters need to know that the Internet speed is very slow. Having a local telephone in the house was a great touch, making it easy for us to order pizza. On Christmas Eve we weren't able to get Pizza Hut to deliver, but Domino did come!

The house was lovely, and the view of the Gulf was simply spectacular! We enjoyed the quiet surroundings and private beach, while being relatively close to stores and restaurants when needed.

We have rented homes from Home Away many times, in several countries, and I have to say that this was one of our most delightful family vacation getaways. We highly recommend the Surfside I property to families or groups that need several bedrooms and lots of space for everyone!
