We are out door person. we like hiking, jogging, swimming, fishing, crabbing. We like run away from busy and stressful city life when ever we can have a break...up to the mountain or down to the beach. Surfside beach is our weekend get away place, we love to jogging on the beach early in the morning, walking on the jetty to watch the beautiful sun set by the end of day, and wondering on the beach under the moon, listening to the sound of the wave...
Jennifer purchased this House in 2009
Why Jennifer chose Surfside Beach
Surfside is a fun place to go fishing, crabbing, surfing, and kayaking. You can find much pleasure here on Surfside as you can find at Galveston and more...And it it not too far from big city, only about an hour drive to Houston. A mid size town with shopping mall, movie theater,and quality restaurant is only 15min away.
What makes this House unique
Surfside is fun but not as crowded as Galveston. Without much commercial commodities as Galveston has, surfside beach is more closer to nature.

Overall great location, just short walk to the beach
Things to remember is that it is a beach house there are gonna be mosquitoes and the water isn’t as clean as you’d get at home due to them being on well water we had a great time only thing that would make it better for future renters is maybe updating the decor and mattresses not horrible but both are a little used.
Need an overall UPGRADE
Cons - We had a nice time at the beach but also had a lots of discomfort were the A/C was not cooling enough and we had to buy some fans. Also, the ceiling fans was not working efficiently either. The toilets all are yellowish color and the appliances are all outdated. The outdoor shower is broken too and we had to use the hose to clean the kids and ourself. All bathrooms definitely need to be fixed. The BBQ grill was all rusted and not able to use the one on the property.
At least we need a good cooling system and nice bathrooms. We live in Houston and we are looking for a nice beach house for our family trips and I hope you will fix all these issues and not just for us for anyone who stays at your place.
Please take this in a positive way and please make your place a nice great beach house.
Pros - The home owner was really nice and gave us a few extra hours in the checkout day. Jennifer responded very quickly and not sure if she is aware of the things are happening around Surf Side.
Suggestion - Their is a lot of beach house rentals are available and to be competitive Jennifer need to take care of the property.
The house was exactly like the pictures. Very close to the beach. Our family enjoyed our stay and will be back.
The property was very clean and a lot closer to the beach than originally thought it would be
The property was very clean and the owner was very accommodating to let us have an early check in....it is super close to the beach and very accessible...it was a perfect situation for me and my guests
Loved the convenience to beach. Hated mosquitoes especially under house.
Property needs some updating. Adequate as is but very plain. All appliances work. No blender in kitchen. Road noise was excessive especially on weekends. Need ceiling fans in all bedrooms. All fans must run well. Not sure what a housekeeper does since we cleaned, washed linens & towels, made beds etc as per instructions before we left. (Took several hours as we used all beds and used bath towels). When one of kids locked closet the housekeeper came and unlocked.(wrong kind of doorknob system) Tall grass and dripping condensation from a/c added to the excessive mosquito problem. Couldn't sit on balcony due to mosquitoes. Kids couldn't play under house due to mosquitoes despite candles and bug spray. House is situated at the north edge of Surfside which was nice as it was not crowded and nice for families even on a holiday. Ants in house especially master bathroom. Mattresses on beds not comfortable. Despite negatives we really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return to Surfside.
Last minute getaway
Great last minute family getaway!
Host was so easy. She told us to take our time checking out and even gave us the option of early check in (though we came from out of town and couldn't arrive as early as she would have let us).
Bird Watching, Crabbing, Fishing. Walking on a mile long jetty into the ocean, and watch the most beautiful sunset by the light tower at the end of jetty.
