For information about the area, I urge you to check out the official website of Surfside Beach is www.surfsidetx.org If fishing is your thing you'll need fishing licenses. You can purchase these online - just google Texas Saltwater Fishing license. You can find several charter fishing companies on the internet, however I recommend using Glenn Hammond, he goes by the name the Hammer. You can find information about his services on his website at: www.coastalconnectionguide.com, or give him a call at 713 208-0683. My husband and son have used his services with great success. He’s a very knowledgeable fisherman and knows all the right spots. If you have time, you must go to Galveston. Check out the city's website for a calendar of events. www.galveston.com Next, I have posted three links for Lake Jackson because it’s the closest reasonably sized city that has all the trappings of city life. Move theatre, chain restaurants, public golf course, etc. The first website I'm posting is for the Sea Center. I haven't been there but from what I understand it's worth going to see. One of the things they have is the largest collection of North American seashells. And supposedly they have staff on site who will identify sea shells you find on the beach. The second link is to the Lake Jackson historical museum. I’m also attaching a link for the main website of Lake Jackson. For a small city, they have quite a nice Fine Arts and Theatre system, no doubt due to philanthropical benefactors like Dow Chemical and some other giant companies that call Lake Jackson home. Anyway, Lake Jackson’s performing arts system attracts some world class venues – it’s worth checking out - you might get lucky and get to see something in a small setting that would sell out in a large Houston arena. http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/spdest/visitorcenters/seacenter/ http://www.lakejacksonmuseum.org/.

About Barbara
In 2005, my husband and I were nearing completion of construction on our vacation home - our beach house - when we discovered that our beautiful baby boy, by then almost two, was autistic. Our savings and extra income intended for the beach house mortgage vaporized as we began intensive therapies for our little one. We had decided to put the house up for sale when an idea was born. What if we cou ... more +
Why This Property?
As a child I was thrilled when my parents would rent a beach house in Surfside for one fun-filled fantastic week each summer. Family from out of town would join us and we'd spend our days fishing, crabbing, swimming and eating delicious things. It instilled a life-long desire to one day have a place to bring my children. My husband and I have dreamed, designed and shaped our home specifically for ... more +
Unique Benefits
Going to Surfside is like stepping back in time. There's only one road into town and one road out and not a single skyscraper or hotel chain. Restaurants are family owned and convenience stores close down in the off season. When we go down to the house, we invite all our loved ones to join us. Our caravan of cars pulls into the driveway and everyone scatters in different directions - little ones w ... more +

Wonderful Thanksgiving Retreat!
Date of Stay: December 18th , 2015

This was the most wonderful home to spend our Thanksgiving week! This beach house was well set up for our family of 9 and had such beautiful views of the beach and ocean. I cannot stress how comfortable we felt in the home and how well stocked the kitchen was. Barbara (owner) was so friendly and easy to work with. She made sure that we had everything we needed and was very accommodating throughout the process and never hesitated to answer any of our questions. Thank you so much, Barbara, for being so warm, friendly and taking care of us! We look forward to staying in your inviting home as soon as we can!

A Great Week
Date of Stay: October 16th , 2015

What a great spot on the beach----the owners are very responsive and accommodating. Barbara just makes sure you have everything. The kitchen was perfect with everything you need to cook for a large group. The new Suoer HEB in Lake Jackson has everything you need to make the visit work better. The GrapeTaste Wine Bar and Restaurant is a good spot for dinner in Lake Jackson. We WILL be back here as Barb will grease the skids for our next landing here. A +++

Great place -- highly recommended
Date of Stay: February 23rd , 2015

I have taken my family to this property for week-long stays each winter for 2012 through 2014, and have now booked for Feb 2015. The house is very nice, and the location is pleasantly quiet (not in the fray with a lot of hotels or other rental beach properties like you might get in Galveston). The kitchen is large and has everything you might need for preparing large, complicated meals. Especially great if you have a large group -- lots of beds, and a very nice master suite so mom & dad can have some privacy. Large windows afford a great view. The hosts have always provided excellent, friendly service.

Great Stay
Date of Stay: May 8th , 2015

We enjoyed our stay. This house has THE best kitchen. It is stocked with everything you need to cook and eat. That was definitely nice! There is a little room under the staircase that small children will LOVE! And the deck and gazebo closer to the beach was great! The owners are wonderful to work with and have done a great job making sure you have everything you need in the house. We will definitely be back ;).
