About Mike Whitson
House was purchased in 2008...then my neighbor burned my house down (he burned his too). Rebuilt it in 2013 and made it just the way we wanted it. We didn't rent it out for the first 8 years we had it but decided it was so much fun that we wanted to share it with others.

Why Mike Whitson chose Surfside Beach
We decided to make this a "smart house". We have smart locks, AC, speakers and lights. All of which can be controlled by "Alexa" or by the provided tablet. You can have music inside as well as out on the deck...you can have different music in each area or combine them to have the same in both. Most of the lights are also controlled by Alexa...just tell her to turn the lights on or which specific light you want on or off...do you need all of that to have fun at a beach house? Probably not....but it is a lot more fun with it! Plus she can tell you the weather for the day, cooking recipes or where to go eat. We also included a full size refrigerator and full size freezer...plenty of space to store food and drinks. We use the house so we make sure it has everything you need to enjoy the beach. From beach games to a crock pot and ninja blender. We also provide beach chairs, beach umbrella and an outdoor speaker you can take to the beach. It really cuts down on the things you need to bring.

My sister the bride and bridesmaids stayed here. The house was perfect for the girls. They had a great weekend. There was lots of room to get ready for the wedding. Even extra blow dryers and curling irons. The owner was amazing making sure they had a great time and everything they needed.
Best Central TX Beach
This was a well appointed home perfect for 6 adults and a dog. All the kitchen tools one could need were in labeled cabinets and the filtered water cooler/heater was a very nice inclusion. This owner has thought of every consideration. We hope to make it back every year!
Above and beyond
The house is charming and beach-cozy with modern details such as Alexa-controlled electronics. The deck is fun with colorful lights and plenty of room to hang out and the walk to the beach was easier than I expected. What will make this our "go-to" in the future (the above and beyond) are the conveniences and courtesies from the owners. You really can show up at this rental with an overnight bag and food. It is refreshing to not worry about everything from drinking water to coffee filters to toilet paper. The showers even had shampoo available to use. This rental really does feel like home. The owner, Mike, was so accommodating and answered all of my questions in detail. The little touches were definitely noticed. We were even greeted with a note and a bottle of wine. Oh, and full candy dish which my crew completely devoured. I also loved the short and sweet checkout list. My family and friends all agree that we will be coming back to this gem. Many thanks for the wonderful stay. Memories made!
We LOVED IT! Everything was great! The owner went out of his way to be welcoming and provide outstanding customer service! It was a special occasion for us and Mike left a note and bottle of wine. We highly recommend this home and will definitely stay again!
Surfside Beach House
Mike was a great host. House was really affordable and very hospitable. The house had everything you could want to make your stay fantastic.Hosted a group of 9 for three days. Mike communicated great and everything was as advertised. Super close to the beach, even for toddlers.
We will definitely stay here again if our travels bring us back to Surfside Beach.
