About Catherine Carter

My family and I found Surfside Beach in 2014. We enjoy our beach cottage and the ability to walk to the beach and share the outdoors with each other. I have a small family of 3 and with my son now all grown up we are working towards retiring at The Sun Drop. We enjoy being able to share our home with you, your family, and friends.

Catherine Carter purchased this house in 2014

Why Catherine Carter chose Gulf Coast

We loved this small community so much that we purchased The Sun Drop as our future retirement home. This small town is so relaxing and peaceful, with great neighbors, and peace and quiet.

What makes this house unique

The Sun Drop cottage fits our lifestyle as we spend the majority of the time outside in our large yard and we keep the lower level stocked with all the beach toys you will need to enjoy your time at Surfside Beach - Tent, chairs, outdoor toys, and grill.

Just the right spot!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at the Sun Drop @ Surfside Beach, TX. for a weekend getaway. It was clean, comfortable, and inviting! Just the perfect spot for the two of us to unwind and relax. We'd go back again!

Cozy remodeled beach house

  • 5 of 5

It was nice and cozy and clean. It was raining almost the whole time we were there so I didn't get a chance to ride the nice bicycles. Maybe next time. The owner is very nice and easy to contact. Will definitely stay there again.

Great little beach rental

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little spot for a four-person family (like us) or a couple looking for a value getaway to Surfside Beach. The house is essentially one open room with a small kitchen, sleeping area and a living room with a futon and a fold-out couch. But it's well-laid out and amounted to a junior suite-style hotel room, except we had it to ourselves and were a short walk away from the beach. It's on a quiet street and easy to get into and out of.

No complaints whatsoever - we enjoyed our stay and would definitely return!

Cute, cozy, and close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay! Clean, quant, and right next to the beach. It was just me and my husband and this place was cozy and perfect. The owner even provided boogy boards and bicycles. Very fun!

Great Get-A-Way!

  • 5 of 5

If it was up to the kids we'd go every weekend. Beautiful little place, everything you need. Outside light downstairs burned out and coffee maker quit on the second day but I'm sure they'll be addressed ASAP. Walking to the beach is very nice. Really enjoyed the Red Snapper restaurant. Fished doing our stay. From the beach caught a bunch of small catfish, whiting, and sand trout plus 1 little manta ray :). Off the jetty sheepshead were spawning, great time to wet a line. The beach chairs, tent, and kids toys a huge addition. There's a small wagon to pull kids or cooler full of adult beverages. Will be back. Thanks and take care!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review and stay at the Sun Drop. The coffee pot was replaced right after you left and I did not catch the outside light, that will be address shortly. We look forward to having you again and I will let you know as soon as I finish the new property. Kind Regards, Cathy
