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.

Cute pet friendly beach house close to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Great location, pet friendly & a short walk to the beach.

My daughter loved the beach, my wife the porch, my dog the yard & myself the BBQ & Hammock. Cute little house in a great spot.

Terry was responsive with prompt & clear instructions... follow them!

A few decent restaurants nearby, but make sure to pack plenty of bottled water & shop on your way for groceries, otherwise you'd have to drive 15-20mins back to the nearest supermarket.

I highly recommend a stay @ this beach house. Thanks.
