Surfside Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 full baths, sleeps 12

This is a fantastic home for a group of friends or family to get away for some time together. It has accommodations for up to 12 people and includes all of your linens, cleaning, dishes, etc for No Additional Fees. Just a short 120 yards to the beach you can enjoy the view from the front deck sitting in the loungers or go on down to the beach and soak up some sun. The house has Dish Network satellite TV with a 42' flat screen in the living room and a TV in the Master along with DVD player. Save a little money by going second row and don't sacrifice a thing! Front row houses rent for almost $500 per week more and you get just as nice of a house and put some spending money in your pockets!

NEW AMENITY! We have installed a private hot tub for our guests to use. It seats up to 8 adults and makes a great place to relax after a long day relaxing on the beach.

Golf Cart Available: We have a 4-seat golf cart available for your use for an additional fee of $200 for the weekend or $350 for the week. It is great for taking all your beach equipment down to the water or even driving to the store or dinner. There is a golf cart lane on Blue Water Highway in Surfside and that is what all the locals use. If you would like to add the golf cart to your reservation please let us know!

Chad is a young business man who lives in the Houston area. He has always had a love for water. After having a rental on Galveston island for a while, he decided to go for the slower pace and more relaxed feel of Surfside. He purchased the home in June of 2010 and has loved every minute of it. He welcomes you to come enjoy the beach house and hopes you have as much fun during your time there as he does!

Chad Wade purchased this cottage in 2010

After owning a place on Galveston Island for a while I sold it and decided to move to Surfside. It is far less touristy and is a fantastic place for families. It is a complete change of pace from everyday life and when you leave you really feel like you have been on vacation. Even though you're only an hour away from the hustle and bustle of Houston.

MANY PROBLEMS!

  • 1 of 5
After already paying in full for this property a long time ago, we read the most recent review. I emailed Mr. Wade and he assured me all had been fixed except for there not being a door on the bunk room. Unfortunately for us that was not the case.
The two large burners on the stove do not work.
The oven still smells of burning something
The hot tub was dirty with straws, sand, bugs and grass.
The living room TV is rigged that if you want to watch a DVD, you need to disconnect the satellite and vice versa. Nothing to tell you that, just happened to figure it out. No remote for DVD.
TV in master doesn't work.
Fan in master barely turns
Other two bedrooms were warm. Had to go buy fans.
No door on the bunk room! No door! I never thought to ask if all the bedrooms had doors! I've learned my lesson.
Bathroom tubs don't have a way to plug up the water to give a young one a bath.
Front door lock is iffy.
Washer and dryer do work.
Never tried the dishwasher.
Fake leather couch in living room seat cushion is all ripped so we put a sheet on it to sit on it.
I emailed Mr Wade after our arrival about these things and as of today, our 5th day, I have not heard from him. There are plenty of other great houses to rent in Surfside. This is not one of them.

SERIOUS PROBLEMS WITH THIS PROPERTY

  • 1 of 5
This house was not properly prepared for our arrival. It must not have been stayed in recently and no one came by to make sure that it was ready for guests. A sampling of the issues we had:

--When we arrived, there was no power at the house. No A/C, no lights, nothing. It took several hours to get this problem resolved with the power company. Meanwhile, we had to go to a restaurant to eat and wait, and our groceries were left in the car to slowly spoil.

--Even after the power was turned on, half the main room's outlets and lights were not functioning, which meant no TV, no coffee maker, no toaster, etc. It was 24 hours after our arrival before the housekeeper finally found a breaker had been tripped. Also, even after that, we could not get the satellite TV to work and the DVD player only worked in B&W.

--The hot tub was completely empty. We filled it ourselves, but due to the notoriously bad water in Surfside we couldn’t use it until the housekeeper came and shocked it with chemicals. Even then the tub was not circulating and heating the water. It was only after a second visit from the housekeeper that it was finally set correctly and then we needed another night for it to be ready. We didn’t end up being able to use it until the third (and last) day we were there.

--There is NO DOOR on the room that the bunk beds are in. The room that's obviously for children to sleep in is completely open to the rest of the house. We had four small children sleeping in there beginning at 8pm each night, which meant that the 4 adults had to spend all evening tiptoeing around or staying out on the deck.

--The oven was unusable because there was melted plastic inside it. We tried to scrape it out, but when we turned it on it smoked and smelled horribly. Also, only three out of the four burners on the stove top worked.

--There was a dead bird in the driveway and a large pile of palm tree trimmings which has been inexplicably left directly between the driveway and the stairs. We had to move them before we get our things into the house.

--No trash bags anywhere in the house, not even in the main kitchen trash can. We had to go to the store and buy some. Also, no paper towels and very little toilet paper. Make sure to stock up before you arrive!

--Really, really, really bad mosquitos. Bring a lot of repellent. We went through an entire can of Deep Woods Off every day.

Overall not a good experience. Homeowner needs to get things in better shape.

GOOD HOUSE, BAD OWNER

  • 1 of 5
The house was ok, clean. Close to beach and the town is great, small and quiet. The listing and contract that we had from the owner stated that the property had grills and dish television, none of the 2 were available. We attempted and left several messages to the owner and never had a return call or message. There was no information in the house on who to call in the local area if we had problems since he lives out of state. We contacted the mgmt. company that handles the subdivision that the house is in but were told they couldn't help us since it was privately owned, their exact words, " unfortunately a lot of the private owners don't care". We didn't let it ruin our family vacation but were very disappointed with this owner and will never use him again or give a good referral. What made it worse by not having a grill, most of the burners on the stove didn't work either. Our entire vacation was planned on by what he said the house offered. There is a small restaurant right over the bridge called Pier 30 that was great and people were really friendly.

JUST WHAT WE NEEDED

  • 5 of 5
My son & I fish the Surfside area a few times each year. I have friends and family who live nearby, but this trip we brought along some family from members from Florida. We live in the Atlanta, Ga. area, but I was born & raised in Galveston (just one block from Chad's house!), so I know the area well.
We caught plenty of fish and slept well in the beach house. Easy access and very comfortable. The neighbors were quiet. No barking dogs. Very comfortable. We'll probably do this again.

SPACIOUS, RELAXING GETAWAY!

  • 4 of 5
We had a very relaxing stay in this quaint Surfside house. It was the perfect getaway away from the hustle and bustle of life in Austin. We especially enjoyed soaking in the hot tub on the cool nights over the Thanksgiving holiday. The beach is wide and long and perfect for long walks. Chad was great with communicating with us through email.

GREAT TIME

  • 4 of 5
The house was perfect for the nine of us, we had our 2 year old grandson with us and really liked the kid proof balcony. Walk to the beach was a very short distance. We went crabbing at the crabbing pier and the kids had a blast, also took them walking on the beach at night and they were fascinated with the little crabs on the beach. I would suggest bringing lots of mosquitoes repellent, they were really bad at night. We would stay here again.

Surfside Beach is a quaint beachside village. Many prefer it to Galveston for its small town charm and laid back atmosphere. You are only about 30 minutes from the Strand, Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn, etc but you have a quiet and peaceful beach to enjoy when you are relaxing. Surfside Beach is not on Galveston Island but just South of Galveston. It is 60 miles south of Houston on Highway 288.
