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

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!

RESTFUL AND RELAXING

  • 4 of 5
The home was great! Went crabbing!! Will never EVER eat crab again...only because having to clean them and see their little eyes...haha! Tanning deck was great! Just the right amount of breeze! Only 5 minute walk to the Beach, but it was very disappointing had so much seaweed/kelp (3 feet deep), could not get in the ocean. Even on the paid for public beach. (Not homeowners fault). Make sure you bring insect spray for the nights! Incredible view watching Martins (teaching babies how to fly), saw Cranes and Pelicans swooping down to get fish and the Seagulls trying to steal their fish, and even a Flamingo. Tad bit difficult going up and down the stairs for some with bad knees and emphysema. Would be awesome to have a lift or something to carry groceries and luggage up. Only one comfortable chair in the front room. Futons, couch and papason not so comfy. Having to take trash to the dumpster was a bit inconvenient especially when driving nice cars. Don't forget to bring sheets, pillowcases and towels, unless you pay for linen service. I read it wrong and thought towels were provided, oops. All in all a nice relaxing time. Thank you Karen!

PERFECT VACATION RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We have been coming to surfside every year for Easter weekend for about 15 years. This was by far our favorite house! We never had to leave the house to fish or crab. We were on the private dock almost the whole weekend fishing and crabbing! Make sure you bring plenty of bug spray, the bugs were only bad during dusk/dawn but when they were bad man they were bad! The house is beautiful and spacious. Could have used a couple more large pots but made it work! I love this house and Karen was absolutely wonderful to work with! Sent deposit back quickly. Would stay here again and again!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Melody. We will check out the pot situation and replace if necessary. We had lots of pots at the property previously, including crab boil pots.

CHRISTMAS AT BAYVIEW

  • 5 of 5
We spent Christmas at Bayview and were not disappointed. The house was exactly as described. Karen was great about answering our questions before we arrived, and even had a Christmas tree up when we got there. We were able to use their crab pots to crab off the dock. The beach is so close and you can see the ocean from the deck. We had a great time! It was so relaxing! We had some problems with water pressure but the owners helped us fix the problem in one phone call. Overall our stay was wonderful, and we definitely got our money's worth.

GREAT TIME

  • 5 of 5
We have been to Surfside several times, and have stayed in many different homes, however this one tops our list. The website accurately describe the home and the area including the photos. Karen was great to work with, and very accommodating especially letting us get there early at the last minute notice. I loved the private dock, and was able to fish and crab 24/7. The crabbing was excellent, and the fishing was steady. I was able to bring a cooler full home of red fish, black drum, and crabs. Thank you Karen for a wonderful time in your home, and look forward to schedule more time with you.

RODNEY (EAST TEXAS)

Had a great time!!! We have a big family and there was plenty of room. The crab traps were fabulous. We were able to have a crab boil on the second day. Bayview was a pefect place to say because of the beach access and the peace and quietness of the Bay. Very Clean! Looking foward to going back! GREAT NEIGHBORS!!!

GREAT HOME, GREAT TOWN, AND GREAT PEOPLE TO RENT FROM!

  • 5 of 5
This is our second year staying at Bayview and again we couldn't have asked for anything better. We had a family gathering including children and everyone had a great time. Everything in the listing and photos was accurate and some things seem to have been updated or improved upon. The enormous kitchen has just about anything you could need, the only thing lacking for a large group would be some larger diameter frying pans. We donated one to the property, however if you are coming with a larger group you may want to bring an additional one. The property does not have a dishwasher, however knowing that we brought and used plastic/paper plates and utensils whenever possible which was easier and allowed us more time to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. As usual the property was clean and maintained. This property really is the best of both worlds as you are just a few blocks from the beach (you can walk or drive) and enjoy time on the private lighted fishing and crabbing pier just steps out back. We never had much success fishing off the pier, however we caught so many blue crabs it was ridiculous! The property is very child friendly, the bunk room has a few toys and having a DVD player in the living area, we also brought children's movies. Both deck areas are gated to keep little ones or pets from wandering off. The lack of excess decor makes it nice if little children are a part of the group since you don't have to worry about them breaking or damaging them. If you are looking for a meal out while there, we greatly enjoyed The Red Snapper Inn just up the Blue Water Hwy which had good service, reasonable prices, and great portion sizes. As others have suggested, bottled water is the way to go in Surfside, the water is safe to drink, but just doesn't taste very good. Our group however had no issues with the water pressure, and there were 12 of us. The area under the house is a great gathering place for mingling and chatting either out of the sun during the day or in the evenings to catch a breeze...just don't forget the bug spray as mosquitos can abound. Our recent stay in June they were not too bad, but the last time we stayed was in early August and they were out in greater numbers. Karen is very helpful and accomodating, as well as timely with the post departure review of the property and return of deposits. We are already looking forward to our next trip to Bayview!
