About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

This A-Frame house is the perfect getaway and it's on the beach. It is located on the pedestrian beach which means there are no cars, roads, or obstructions between the house and the beach. The house has a stylish seaside decor and an upstairs bedroom that kids of all ages love with its own private balcony. The house has been completely remodeled, so take a look at the photos and for additional informtaion see my website below. This house was featured in the 2010 issue of TEXAS HIGHWAY MAGAZINE.

EVERYTHING from booking to checking in, the location of the beach-house and cleanliness was perfect. We very much enjoyed the weekend at this cozy spot and will stay here during future visits to Surfside. Thank you Dawn & Phillip for providing such a wonderful place!

Stay was great, no follow up on deposit

Stay was great, location is amazing. Just realized it has been well over a month and no message on why deposit was kept, or why it wasn't . we did a thorough clean...although the duvet covers tested my patience lol other than that, no complaints.

So great, I'd rather not share

The 'Blue Mermaid' was a great stay. It is one of those places you are almost afraid to review for fear that it will be constantly booked in the future. The house is well kept and perfect for a small to medium family. The views from the living room and second story windows were gorgeous. From the second story you can wake up and watch the sun rise from your bed. Being able to walk right down to such a great beach was such a pleasure and surpassed my expectations. We can't wait to visit again next year.


Right on beach.

Well kept clean property

Plenty of space and beds

Great views

Nice Deck

Kitchen with lots of cooking supplies.

Accurate Description

One of the better maintained properties in the area from what we could see.


AC was off when we got there so downstairs was a little stuff first night.

Stairs to second story were fairly steep.

We truly had a wonderful experience at the Blue Mermaid! We hope to return next year... The very best part was the beach front! We loved staying right there on the sand... Thank you, we loved it!

The location of this house is great! There is a public beach nearby, but this house sits on a more private beach. The jetty is nearby and you can walk and watch the fishermen. We saw lots of dolphins and enjoyed the water. The owner's husband was wonderful! He was very friendly and welcoming. I am not sure if it was the timing of our trip or if Surfside is always this way, but the beach and surrounding area were dirty. There was a lot of trash on the beach, near the dunes, and in the water. I did not like seeing that. Ever other coastal area I have been to is very strict about trash because of it's danger to marine life. The jetty was gross, covered in trash. This however is not a reflection on the property we stayed at. it was very clean and nice. I was just disappointed in the area. They have a beautiful piece of heaven with that coastline and I don't think they are taking very good care of it. I hope it was just the busy holiday weekend that caused so much trash and things get cleaned up quickly!!
