About 713-622-8767 Debbie

We weekend at the beach, and we think this area is the best part of the Texas Gulf Coast. The house is located on a semi-rural beach, surrounded by 1 acre of natural beauty. Unlike other beach rentals, Coastal Chalet offers a large, beautiful kitchen and a spacious, open living area. If you seek privacy and natural beauty, this spot is for you! 713-622-8767 Debbie purchased this house in 2010

Why 713-622-8767 Debbie chose Surfside Beach

We chose this beachfront house because of the wide sandy beaches and the surrounding acre of natural beauty. Coastal Chalet is located away from crowds at Surfside & Galveston. A private drive ends at the house, with a private walk-over leading to the sandy beach. UNLIKE THE TINY LIVING SPACE IN TYPICAL BEACH HOUSES, COASTAL CHALET OFFERS A LARGE KITCHEN + A SPACIOUS, OPEN LIVING AREA!

What makes this house unique

We love watching the coastal birds and spotting dolphins in the Gulf. The unobstructed beach views and privacy make this a truly relaxing beach experience. Endless hours can be spent swimming, playing in the sand, relaxing on the deck. This is also a great spot for saltwater fishing. We enjoy fresh redfish, whiting, flounder, and speckled trout, all caught by area fishermen.

Coastal Chalet

  • 5 of 5

This is my second year as a long term renter of Coastal Chalet. I love this house! It has a beautifully appointed large kitchen, spacious living area, and 3 good sized bedrooms, with 2 having attached bathrooms. The view is beyond compare and the beach is just steps away. The house is located in a quiet area with very few neighbors. It is clean and well maintained. The landlords are easy to work with. I highly recommend this property.

I was very privileged to be the first person to stay at this house after the updates. The house was clean and ready for me when I arrived. The property is spacious. There are 3 nice sized bedrooms, 2 with attached bathrooms. There is also a loft area that works well for children. The bathrooms are well appointed with glass enclosed showers. The kitchen/living area is really the highlight of this home. A large granite counter top works well for food prep and service. The kitchen is well stocked and has high end stainless appliances which make cooking easy and a joy. There is a huge flat screen TV in the living room, besides TV's in the bedrooms. The deck is large with great outdoor furniture. It is partially covered, so picking sun or shade is an easy choice. The new walkover is a wonderful addition to this property. The deck at the end of the walkover is a great place to spend beach time. It is literally steps off the beach. Swimming, hunting for shells, and fishing are activities that can be easily enjoyed. The owners are easy to deal with. I absolutely enjoyed my time at this property and definitely plan on returning!

Perfect Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our first family vacation to Surfside made perfect by staying at this property. The close proximity to the beach will struggle to be beaten. The property itself has everything you could wish for, with excellent utilities. We had a wonderful time and fully intend to return to this property for many years to come. Our only advice would be that the AC struggles to keep up at times and for a better nights rest the loft is the best choice.

Fun Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at Coastal Chalet and we certainly recommend it for families with small children. It is right at the end of a dead end street with a easy walk over the dunes to a wonderful beach. Just bring food & sunscreen.

We did have rain but the large covered 2nd floor porch was perfect with comfy deck furniture & super views to the water. The house was comfortable, clean & well equipped with anything you might need. The owner was very accommodating & helped us build a fire on the beach. We even saw "fire flies" at night - a real treat.

Brandon's Beachin' Birthday

  • 5 of 5

The perfect beach house! I rented this house for my boyfriend's 29th birthday for him and a few good friends over the weekend. Externally, the house is large with a wrap around deck and a tranquil patio complete with a lounging area facing the beach- perfect for chasing the early morning sunrise or watching the sunset. Internally, it's spacious and accommodating for our group of friends- not to mention it's adorably decorated! The owner, Debbie, was extremely helpful and provided immediate attention whenever we needed assistance.

As far as entertainment goes- we did very little sight seeing except formed a makeshift golf course on the beach, played a little bocce ball, and some late night crabbing (no success). Mosquitos are a major, MAJOR problem but nothing a little insect repellant can't fix.

If you want a secluded house with a private beach access for good friends, good fun and good times- this is your house! Would love to make this an annual trip going forward!

Directly in front of house!
Car: recommended

This is the place for a family beach vacation. Fish in the surf, from a jetty, or in the bay. Coffee on the deck in the morning. Sun and sand 24/7! Grill a burger or the fish you catch. Build a campfire in the evening. Coastal Chalet is located on a fairly remote part of Follet's Island, however Galveston Island is just over the causeway, nine miles to the east. Moody Gardens, The Schlitterbahn, the historic Galveston Strand District, and many restaurants are located on Galveston Island. Don't miss the Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge!! This is a national treasure with wildlife (including alligators), wetlands, and prairies. Located a few miles north of Coastal Chalet.
