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, BVI, St. Thomas, 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

We enjoyed our stay at Stella Di Mare. Great house with close proximity to beach, just a few steps over a boardwalk. Loved hearing & seeing the waves from the decks.

Perfect Beach House

We enjoyed a beach getaway at Stella Di Mare. The house was spacious and felt very comfortable. Loved the decorations! It's got everything you could possibly need on your stay. We loved the decks and how close it was to the sand. Literally just a few steps. It was a great trip!

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this beach house for the Father's Day weekend and it was truly amazing. First, the owner made the process of renting the home very simple. The pictures do not do this home justice! It is so nice and right near the beach as described; which allowed us to do lots of fishing. The owner provided the linen and towels at no charge. There was plenty of parking space and the rooms were able to accommodate our group. The owner really wants you to enjoy their home and she has done everything to make that possible. This was an amazing trip in a great home that my family and I will never forget.

Perfect Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This beach house had absolutely everything you would need or want for a beach vacation. It was the perfect place to celebrate Mother's Day weekend. Beautiful balconies for direct view to the ocean and listening to the waves. Just a couple of steps to the sand from this home. Owner was lovely and responded quickly to questions. We could not have asked for a better home to stay at Surfside.

Beautiful property so close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this place based on all the positive reviews and it so did not disappoint! The photos hardly do this home justice. Lovely place to stay & owner is super sweet. The beach house is clean, cozy, beautifully decorated, and comfy. All decks have super views of the ocean. We could feel, smell, and hear the ocean. It was truly amazing.
