About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Located about an hour South of Houston, the Bahama Mama offers the ultimate retreat for those seeking to get away from it all to enjoy a spectacular time at the beach. The House has an extended deck with nice views of the ocean, and the inside is very nicely furnished with the vacationing family in mind. The beach is a few steps away and offers endless possibilities for fun regardless of the season. Surfside Beach was recently voted as best Gulf Coast beach town by readers of Gulfscapes magazine. Surside is steeped in history and is home to the famous Fort Velasco, and is the location where the first battle prior to the war for Texas Independence was fought.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bahama Mama was a great spot for a family vacation. Adults, young and old children all enjoyed the easy access to the calm gulf waters. The house is in a great location too! Nothing on the left of you and only a few houses around you. I most enjoyed sitting on the deck and enjoying the view. I highly recommend it.

Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a week stay at the house and we are ready to book our next trip! The house was very welcoming, warmly lit, and spacious. Perfect for our needs. The owners were very accommodating and communicative. Beach proximity was wonderful and Galveston is just up the road.

The house is nice, but...

  • 3 of 5

Overall, the beach house is well-furnished, clean and comfortable. Easy access to the beach. There was plenty of room for our family of 7. The deck is nice, and the outdoor shower is convenient. This house is in the second row, but it's only a few steps to the beach.

There are a few negatives. The mattress in the master bedroom is terrible--creaks, lumpy, very uncomfortable. There are no blinds in the master bedroom and all of the neighbors leave outdoor lights on that shine into the master bedroom. The ceiling fan in the master is old and out of balance also makes noise. All together, it's hard to get any rest in the master bedroom.

Although the ads feature a photo of a hammock on the deck, there is no hammock.

Last, and this isn't the owners' fault, the beach is a disappointment. There is trash strewn all over the beach and apparently there is no cleaning crew. People leave old lawn chairs, torn up canopies, and all sorts of other trash to go along with mounds of cigarette butts, paper, styrofoam, etc. I was really shocked at the amount of trash on the beach, and it goes on for miles, not just in front of this house.

I wanted to give the house a four star rating because the owners are nice and easy to work with and the house is, in many ways, very nice. But the mattress alone compels me to give a lower rating. You can't roll over in the bed without being jolted awake by the noise the mattress makes. After three nights with almost no sleep, I was ready to go home. I'm surprised this hasn't been mentioned in other reviews.

Owner's Response: Thank you Keith for your response. Apologies about the blinds in the Master Bedroom - previous guest damaged blinds, and removed them to avoid them being noticed missing. Unfortunately this happens, although thankfully it is infrequent. We have replaced them with new ones and also replaced mattress with a new one. As far as the beach cleanliness, the city is very good about taking care of the beach - it could be that a crowd of beachgoers was inconsiderate and did not take care of there leftovers before leaving the sand behind.. and it was before beach patrol saw it... we hope to see you in the future and help you have a 5 star experience! thanks for the feedback as we strive to continuously improve.
