About Jeff

We are 7 siblings from the Houston area - Oceans Seven. We all have families and have provided 20 grandchildren (so far) to our parents who are the ones that made this family-owned beach house a reality. We used to rent in Surfside every year and have always enjoyed this beach. Let the crowds go to Galveston, Surfside is easier to get to and much quieter - most of the time.

Jeff purchased this house in 2015

Why Jeff chose Surfside Beach

When we first started looking to purchase in Surfside, we saw this house and instantly fell in love. It is easily one of the nicest properties of its size on the island.

What makes this house unique

Walking in for the first time, you will be immediately struck by the large vaulted ceiling main room that encompasses the living, dining and kitchen area ( Kitchen well stocked with all utensils, pots & pans needed to cook and bake) and that it all looks out directly at the beach through large bay windows. A long hallway to the back of the house separates the bedrooms from the living area. And a large wrap around porch to enjoy.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We love this house - especially since it is next to the Big Kahuna- which our family reserves each year for a family reunion. So convenient. The owners are very nice and accommodating.

This was our third year to stay at this house. Also it rained all day on Wed the Fourth of July - but there are lots of puzzles and games for Kids and adults- so it was a great fourth even with the Rain!

Great beach front house

  • 5 of 5

This beach house is in a fantastic location, right on the beach in a quiet section of SurfSide. The large deck is good for watching the waves, and there's a grill downstairs. The kitchen was large and living area was open and spacious. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and the AC worked great. The rooms were a little cramped because there are bunk beds in two of the rooms as well as a double/queen, but I appreciated there being actually beds (rather than a sofa bed) for as many people as possible. The owners of the house were also very communicative and quick to answer questions before and during our stay. Highly recommended!
