We stayed here the week of Thanksgiving instead of a hotel while visiting my parents in Lake Jackson. The property management company was very reposponisve, even over the holiday. We are from the area and very familiar with Surfside and have stayed in a couple properties over the years. This property is well decorated, clean, thoughtfully laid out, and it comfortably accommodated our family of five. The three window units are very nice...true to fall weather in Texas, we needed both the heat and the AC in the course of our stay, and the units seamlessly responded, keeping us very comfortable. The smart TV was great, we were able to log into our Netflix and Amazon prime accounts. We had some issues with the downstairs lights not working, which was a challenge because we arrived after dark. The motion sensor floodlight on the main stairs didn’t work, and we couldn’t get any of the overhead lights in the downstairs fans to work. The light switches are also in strange spots and some are wired upside down. All that to say, once we figured everything out, there were plenty of other light sources in the house, and we didn’t miss the fan lights at all. The lack of a washer and dryer wasn’t a problem for us because we were able to do laundry at my parent’s, but if we didn’t have that option, especially if we were staying in the summer and going through towels, I might think twice before staying here. The only other comment I’d make about the property that could be improved, is the bathroom had no ventilation and the window was caulked shut. It was annoying and uncomfortable to have steam everywhere after someone showered, especially when five people were trying to get ready. One other thing to note about staying anywhere in Surfside is the water is potable but not palettable. The owners generously provided a gallon of water in the fridge, but you will want to bring more. Also, showering and doing dishes, you’ll notice the water has a sulfurous smell and a cloudy color - that is just the nature of water supply by the beach. Cute property, though! Would definitely recommend.
Thanks for taking the time to write such a thorough and helpful review, much appreciated. We think this little beach a-frame is pretty darn cute as well. :) We'll definitely look into the light situation, perhaps we can mark the switches better and check into that motion light. With the unique configuration/style of the home, the architect owner had to get creative on placement during remodel. Also, we'll see about options for the bath ventilation. Appreciate you bringing to our attention. Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving and would love to have you back again!
My family and I had a great time at Surfside! The kids loved the little house as much as they loved playing on the beach. Surfside, in general, is a great area. A couple things to note: I knew this going in, but there is not a washer/dryer or dishwasher. I didn't mind it when booking and didn't really mind it while staying, but it may be something to think about if you're staying for very long. Even for just a 2 night stay, I did find myself wishing there was a way to quickly dry some of the kids' towels or clothes. The kitchen is pretty sparse in terms of available supplies, but it IS a tiny home! Just maybe consider bringing your own stuff if you plan to cook a lot while staying. Overall, we had a great stay! Kind hosts and a cute little house close to the beach...not much else you need for a quick weekend getaway.
Thanks for taking time to write such a thoughtful helpful review. Sounds like your family had a fantastic Surfside getaway-yay! Yes, it is a tiny home, and the architect certainly had to get creative with cool spaces. :) That said, we'll look into squeezing in a few more kitchen items. Appreciate the suggestion. You were ideal guests to host! Come on back for some more beach time!
This is a nice cozy property. I think it's great for two. I love all the windows and the great design of the space, good use of a small space.
Delighted to hear you enjoyed our little beach a-frame! Thank you. The architect definitely has a good eye for maximizing space with a modern clean vibe!
We had problem with AC condensation on unit near couch. The unit was not installed properly and dripped everywhere. Nuisance that detracted from stay. Otherwise the property was clean and had good setup to enjoy simple beach trip. We bought a bowl for the kitchen and brought our own knife and peeler since kitchen suppliers were limited for the cooking we wanted to do. We had to use one of the pots to catch condensate from AC unit most of the weekend. Only 2 coffee mugs! Definitely need a few more mugs for 4 adults that this space accommodates. Seriously enjoyed walks on beach and utlized outdoor shower a lot, which was so convenient and spacious. Overall space is well planned but could use some blinds or window coverings on top floor as you feel like you are changing for street traffic driving down the road given lack of privacy and very large windows. We had a great time.
Great beach getaway for 2 couples, delighted to hear! Also, thanks for the detailed review and suggestions. We've arranged for our service tech to come take look at that one AC, good thing there are 2 others. We'll also review the kitchen utensil and cooking inventory. Seems we've had some reduction over the busy summer season. Appreciate you staying with us!
We loved this place so much that we stayed twice. The home was renovated into a great modern look which made walking in a surprise to the eye. We had a cozy little room for my husband and I downstairs and our four kids stayed upstairs in the loft. The light that comes in through the windows was so relaxing and watching the sunrise and sunset was amazing! We were only a minute’s walk to the pedestrian beach, which is blocked off to people being able to drive up and down while our kids played. We sat up our little EZ up and spent all day at the beach. The neighborhood is very quiet and we were able to ride our golfcart everywhere! The people in Surfside were so welcoming and nice. Great little shops and stands to check out and peruse through. We stayed again in early fall, the water was still nice and the weather was fantastic. We will be there again this summer!
The morning walks to the ocean to watch the sunrise and enjoy my morning coffee at the beach or on one of the two balconies was heavenly. It’s a very short drive to a beach where you can have a little fire and drive on the beach. Steve’s place was clean, and felt very comfortable. Highly recommend!
Sunrise and coffee - what a fantastic relaxation mix! So glad you took advantage of the views and home! Appreciate you taking such great care of our home during your stay. Would love to have you back again!
