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!

Why Terry Johnson chose Surfside Beach

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.

We fully enjoyed our stay at the Sailfish beach house!! Perfect yard area for the dogs, great little tiki bar to relax and grill, incredibly close to the beach... only 4 houses away from the walkover! The owner, Terry was very responsive with messages, we highly recommend this rental and hope to come back again!

Week at Surfside Beach - Sailfish House

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The house was great, just a short walk to the beach. The neighborhood was quiet and friendly. The house was fully equipped and comfortable. My husband is a surf fisherman so we brought a wagon for him to haul all the fishing equipment to the beach. A wagon would be something I would recommend to bring. Terry the owner, is great to work with. We most definitely would like to return. We loved out time there. Thanks!

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.
