About Terry Johnson

After growing up in Houston, spending time vacationing in Surfside Beach and wanting a vacation home close to home, we purchased Sailfish Beach House in 2005 as a new build. While visiting Surfside Beach, we thought it would really be nice to spend the whole day at the beach & not worry about driving all the way back home. We decided to rent Sailfish Beach House to meet some of the expense but use it whenever we can!

Terry Johnson purchased this house in 2005

Why Terry Johnson chose Gulf Coast

We bought this house brand new so we could have a vacation home close to where we live. We can't spend all our time there so we like to rent it out so others can enjoy the wonderful weather and atmosphere of Surfside Beach.

What makes this house unique

As a fairly new house, it has central air and heat. The open plan living area ensures you won't be crowded into little rooms while you're inside. But why would you want to be inside? The covered deck has a nice view of the beach. The outdoors downstairs has a big fenced in yard, just perfect for your dogs or small children. The tiki bar gives you a chance to spend time drinking with your friends and at the end of the day, you can gather around the new fire pit.

Great place to stay if you have dogs.

  • 5 of 5

The owner of this house is very responsive to emails. He always replied to his my questions super quick.

The house was in a great location for our needs. We came to the area for my brother's wedding and we stayed an extra couple of days to see some sights around Houston and to enjoy the beach. The house is about an hour away from each attraction (NASA, Kemah, HNMS, Galveston) that we saw. The drive to Galveston is especially pretty.

We brought our pups along to the beach house. The fenced in area was prefect to keep them contained. The outside stairs are a little steep so if you have a large or older dog make sure they take them slow. Our boxer who is blind had a hard time at first but got the hang of it after a day or two.

Overall, a good place to set up our base to do wedding stuff and explore the area.

Relaxed

  • 4 of 5

We took the family to this beach house , it was just as it says relaxing! We went to the beach almost everyday. It was an awesome experience.We made smores at night in the back yard in the fire pit . Very quiet neighbors . Only four houses from the beach. Only 20 minutes to HEB and Walmart in Lake Jackson. Very easy to find with google maps! At night we heard frogs singing. Then the night before we left they greeted us by the tiki bar! The kids had their own room to hang out.There was only one tv in the house but that made us have family time! I am sure we will come back in the future. Thanks Terry for sharing your home with our family.:) Sincerely ,

The Reyes Family

Wonderful house and owner.

  • 5 of 5

The whole family had a blast and would love to go back next year. Everyone we ran into at Surfside Beach was friendly and nice. Good food, nice beaches and things to do for the entire family. The house we rented was awesome, clean and a great location. The owner was great and like a friend we knew back home. Hope to return to surfside in the future.

House was laid out very well. The wife and kids loved it. Not to far from beach, pleasant walk. Terry was very accommodating to our requests and we appreciate that greatly. We do want to go back in the future.
