About DKC Properties Interests II, LLC

Bayview is owned by DKC Properties Interests II, LLC. Managers, David and Karen Clauson have been vacationing in Surfside for 20 years and decided to build Bayview to enjoy and share with others.

DKC Properties Interests II, LLC purchased this house in 2005

Why DKC Properties Interests II, LLC chose San Luis Beach

My husband grew up going to Surfside and we love the area! Hurricane Ike did a lot of damage but Surfside has cleaned up really well and the beach has never looked nicer. Our house is on the bay side so it's the best of both worlds. It's a quick walk to the beach but since it is not on the beach, it's more private without all the beach campers within earshot. There is a private dock out back that you can fish or crab from and we hear the fishing/crabbing has been great this year. Fun upper deck gives you a bird-eye view. We hope you come see us!

Great place for us!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks here just after the 4th of July. Bayview seemed to have all we needed. Property was clean upon arrival. Great amenities in our eyes were the 2 refrigerators, large kitchen/dining area, and the dock out the back. The dock has both running water and A.C. power. There were some lights in the lockable outside storage so we used them to light up the water. I didn't recall in previous reviews that there was in fact power on the dock so I feel I should mention that. I had brought some shop lights and extension cords but did not need them.

100% on the crabbing off the dock! I brought my own trap not knowing there were a couple there already. Probably best to ask to use the ones provided. We caught almost 3 dozen crab and made a couple of awesome gumbos... A couple of redfish rounded out our dock time.

I think the only thing I could knock would be a lack of larger frying pans for breakfast and a dishwasher, but we knew about the dishwasher before renting, so no big deal.

We would definitely stay here again!

We loved the location of this rental! The pier on the bay was enjoyed by all!

  • 5 of 5

I loved setting out the crab traps and boiling fresh crabs! It was fun fishing off the pier and watching beautiful sunsets over the bay. The beach was close enough to enjoy early morning walks and swim. The house was comfortable and quiet! Would love to stay here again!

Great Location, Clean, and Very Responsive

  • 4 of 5

Karen does an excellent job of responding quickly to all questions and was helpful through my first VBWO booking process. We stayed over the 4th weekend and really enjoyed having the bay access as well as being close to the beach. Plenty of room to sleep 12 as advertised. Caught enough crabs in a half day on dock to boil about 6 doz. This is more of a camp than a house; which I am use too growing up spending a lot of time in SE LA marshes so my expectations we level set on what we were getting. Plus most of our time was spent outside.

Negatives were we paid for linen services but recieved no bath towels as stated in payment. Another one for us was the AC system had problems keeping up with the summer heat and high winds making it hotter inside than we would have liked in the middle of the day till about 9-10 pm temps would stay at 80 degrees then get down to 72 by morning time. We managed due to an enjoyable breeze and as already stated earlier being outside the majority of the time. Only time it really became an issue was when we would try to put our 3 month down for bed and it would be hot.

Minus the AC we would stay here again just because it's a quiet place that reminded me of camps in Grand Isle I grew up in and the prompt customer service.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Nicholas for the review. I'm sorry that you weren't happy with the a/c - I would have been happy to send a service person out there if you had called me that an issue remained. When we talked you said it was blowing cold air in the front room. As it turned out, it was just air duct had come lose from the vent in another room and has now been fixed. You did not mention missing bath towels; I will discuss this with the cleaning service but I would have been sent them out to you. I apologize they were not put out. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and would love to have you back.

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

I love having the bay behind the house to crab and fish and the beach is walking distance so best of both worlds... The house has pretty much everything you need as far as pot, pans, utensils and such. Basically bring your clothes, toys and food and you are good to go.
