Great for our needs!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful beach and views. Covered deck was great...kept sun off while enjoying the salty breezes. Nice living area. Facilities met expectations and were not so new and polished that we had to worry about what we touched. The large fenced in deck worked great for pets.

This property was excellent for our whole extended family. There was plenty of room, and sleeping was not a problem. It accommodated 16+ people with room to spare. We never felt crowded and the layout provides excellent flow for large groups. The deck provides a captivating view of the beach that mesmerizes! A wrap around porch comes off the deck offering areas of quiet solitude and additional views of the surrounding area. It was only a few days after Hurricane Harvey hit Texas and the beach crews had already immaculately cleaned and graded the beach. I highly recommend everyone to take advantage of this beach house and the atmosphere it provides.

Best spot on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We have had the pleasure of staying at this house twice in the past 3 years. It is the perfect location for both beach access and local restaurants/bars. It is very comfortable all around, provides all amenities necessary for a fabulous, casual stay on the beach. Jeff was very accommodating to our schedules and easy to reach when needed. Family, friends and fur babies will thank you for bringing them to Starfish! Looking forward to our next stay. :)

Even better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great family beach house. It's right on the beach so it was easy when we needed to run back and forth with the kiddos. Has almost everything you need but food, even games and movies. You can tell this place is a well-loved family space. We fit 6 adults and 3 kids with room to spare.

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.
