Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12-13)

ITS ALWAYS GREAT HERE...FISHING ON YOUR PRIVATE PIER, MOONLIGHT STROLLS ALONG THE BEACH OR WATCHING SUNSETS ON THE BAY FADE INTO STAR LIT NIGHTS.

There are not many of these...Enjoy your own private lighted fishing pier, witness spectacular sunrises over the Gulf and sunsets over Little Drum bay. And best of all, if you bring your boat, you can launch and park next door at the paved, private boat launch and leave your boat parked at our private pier.

Completed in June 2008, this home has two very large covered balconies facing Little Drum Bay. Watch the kids fish on the lighted pier while you gently sway in the futon hammock designed to hold two adults. Read your favorite book, nap or sip on your favorite drink while watching the spectacular sunsets.

Inside you can relax in the spacious and open floor plan designed to accommodate groups of all sizes. The kitchen has all-stainless steel appliances. Gourmet cooks enjoy being able to prepare their favorite dishes, listening to their favorite music while gazing at the views of the bay.

Three bedrooms are upstairs but one is downstairs for the occasional late night arrival or grandpa's snoring.

The beach is only 1.5 blocks away. Load up the chairs, umbrella and cooler and putter over to the beach to build sand castles, wake board, surf-fish or just kick back and enjoy the views. When you come home, rinse off under the outdoor shower with hot and cold water.

At the end of the day, you can play board games with the family, sit out under the stars, make smores over the fire in the firepit or watch movies or TV.

There are a variety of other activities which include local restaurants, putt-putt golf, Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn water park, the confederate air force museum, and The Strand, a world class shopping area in Galveston.

There is no better value in a family vacation that offers this many options.

Why The Owner chose Surfside Beach

Surfside Beach is a quiet community - very family friendly - clean, wide open beaches. All the nitelife, restaurants and shopping are only a short drive away - 20 minutes to Lake Jackson and only 32 minutes to Galveston - but you don't have all the traffic and huge crowds

What makes this house unique

It is just a short walk or drive to the beach and you can still enjoy all the perks of a home on the bay - your own private lighted fishing pier - gorgeous sunsets on the bay - plenty of room in the yard to play and no traffic as on the beach

Guestbook comments from the owner

Absolutely love our stay at the Bayhouse Star. So comfortable. Everything you need is there. Feels like home. Can't wait to go back.

The house was very clean and in very good condition. Perfect for 12 people. Grand parents stayed in down stairs bedroom, perfect for them. Kitchen, living room and dining room excellent area to spend time with the whole family.

Loved our Family time!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our son's wedding and had a great time. The view is beautiful from the balcony and will definitely come back during the summer to enjoy the beach. And if you're like me that loves to cook for your family - the kitchen is FULLY equipped!

Thank you for your lovely home as it was just enough for us to be able to have family time once again.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Loved this home! Had a wonderful holiday with family & the home was so comfortable & inviting. We fished, crabbed, went to the beach & relaxed at the beach house! Julie was easy to contact & very pleasant. If I had to give 1 opportunity for the house maybe some silverware for the kitchen. Thanks for sharing your home with our family!

Owner's Response: I am sorry there was not silverware at the home. It must be slowly disappearing with use and I apologize for not being made aware of this. Thank you so much for your feedback so that I can take care of this immediately.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed in the house with another married couple. Between us, we had three small kids, and the experience was great. Our favorite part was the private dock. We caught tons of crabs, and fished as well. We caught small red and black drum, croaker, mullet, and lost a huge flounder at the dock. The location was great with a quick trip to the Gulf and tons of room in the house for the kids. The kitchen was spacious and well stocked. We cooked in every night and had family supper at the large table. Just be aware that the house has aged a bunch since the pics on the page, but we had a great time and will be booking again.
