About Brooke Cortez

Our home is family owned. The Miller and Cortez families (siblings) are proud owners of three beach homes in Surfside/Freeport. The Millers split their time between George West and San Antonio. They have 2 children (a high school senior, Morgan) attending George West High School and a second year law student, Marcus (University of Texas graduate) attending South Texas College of Law. The Cortez family lives in Prosper, north of Dallas. Their three children: Caleb (6th grader), Marissa (5th grader), and Josh (1st grader) enjoy playing all sports and their trips to the beach.

Brooke Cortez purchased this house in 2014

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the tour! We are looking forward to staying in your home this summer. It was nice of your family to allow us a "sneak peak." The nice, open floor plan and welcoming decor is exactly what our family is looking for when planning a get-a-way from the city. Our children loved the private walkway to the beach and my husband and I are looking forward to sitting on your deck and enjoying the beach view. So glad we got to meet you and again thank you for the tour and for welcoming us to Surfside Beach.

Awesome house and the location !!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great house to have a group stay at. Four bedrooms and four baths really make for a nice set up. The kitchen is a perfect size and very well-stocked! We cook on our vacations because we have small children ...And we enjoy it. Great kitchen ,great dining table inside and out and living room area. The outside shower was very handy and the kids loved it. Made it a fun thing for them to get cleaned up.The owner is very responsive and helpful. The beach was nice in that section and the walk over right by the house makes it so convenient. We enjoyed our time and will be back. Wonderful view of the beach from the deck. Exactly what we were hoping for.

Loved it!!

Perfect Setting

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, the beach was perfect. This is a fantastic setup. Exactly as advertised, and just as spectacular as you imagined. You really can't get a better beachfront place than this. The only thing that could make it better - potable water (Believe it when they say bring drinking water !!) and barstool height outdoor table so you could see over the railing.

The house was great and owner was very responsive when we had an issue.

  • 5 of 5

The only thing that was a bit of an issue was the tap/shower water was increasingly salty, we had to brush our teeth with bottled water. But it wasn't a big deal and overall we loved the property.
