Our home has amazing unobstructed beach views from all 4 decks and is just steps to the beach via the walkway over the dunes. We have comfortable Adirondack loungers and chairs on both downstairs decks. Underneath the house there is a hammock for catching the ocean breezes. A picnic table and stacking resin chairs are provided for additional seating.

This is a wonderful place where you can soak up the sun, watch dolphins, enjoy the beach, and look for seashells. Also the crabbing pier and the jetty (for fishing) are just minutes away.

Surfside is a quaint island village that is only 50 miles from Houston. It is quieter, cleaner, and much less busy than Galveston. There are local restaurants on the island along with a liquor store and gas station. Lake Jackson is 12 miles away for chain stores or restaurants and a movie theater.

About Lori

We have been beach seekers for many years until we finally decided to build at Surfside Beach. We love the small village on the island. We have visited beaches on the west coast, east coast, Jamaica, Bermuda, The Bahamas, & Hawaii. To us, Surfside was the perfect spot to settle in & build our dream cottage.

Lori purchased this house in 2014

Why Lori chose Gulf Coast

We love the 4 decks with amazing unobstructed views. Also the 3 bedroom 3 bathroom layout fits our family & guests. This is our happy place that has been fully furnished to be a home away from home. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we do!!

What makes this house unique

Watching dolphins play in the surf and pelicans soaring in the sky all from our beautiful decks. Amazing sunrises from the front decks and stunning sunsets from the back decks.

Great Beach House Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful and comfortable with its beautiful views of the ocean from many rooms in the house. The covered decks had amazing views too! So serene to sit out for early morning coffee or just to enjoy the view. My family had a wonderful time. Home was pristine with everything we needed. House was fully stocked with nice new kitchen items not your typical old worn out cast offs. Plenty of towels, gorgeous linens, blankets, & quilts. This was the best weekend and plan to come back again!

Best Beach House & Great Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 adults and 4 children spent a fun week at Stella Di Mare. The house is lovely and very comfortable. We easily fit everyone in the main living area for meals and "hanging out". The kitchen was well furnished with everything we needed. The house was spotless. The bedroom arrangement was a comfortable fit for the families. We appreciated the 2 master suites with balconies & bathrooms. Also it was a huge plus to have a second fridge for our sodas. Location was fabulous...we could see the beach all 4 porches. Unobstructed views! Owner was very friendly and accomodating. This family vacation was an experiment for us, and we definitely plan to return next summer.

We loved our time at Surfside in this beautiful new beach house. The house has everything you need to just relax and enjoy your vacation. House was super clean & my wife loved the decorations. The views on the decks were awesome. We really liked how close the beach was from the house, it was just a quick few steps. We will definitely come back!
