Overview

Texas Gulf Coast House Rental Photos and Description

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.

Great location! Overall a great rental

  • 4 of 5

Overall a great experience at this beach house. A few nitpicks (see below) but would stay here again.

Pros:

- Super close location - quick walk to the beach, easy to get back and forth (important when you have kids)

- Great/huge patio with a view of the ocean

- Great for two families with kids (kid room has 3 separate beds)

- Kitchen had everything we needed to cook all meals

- Surfside is a great beach - very clean (for the Gulf)

Cons:

- You have to bring your own bath towels (to be fair, towels are not mentioned as provided but that seems like an easy thing to provide and I've never had it not offered at VRBO location before)

- Tap water is not drinkable (this is a Surfside Beach issue but still, annoying to bring in drinking water)

- Blinds in the master bedroom are broken and do not close

- My fault, but I thought this was on the last row of houses (that is, it faced the beach). From one picture, you can see that's not true, as there is a house in front of it. Not a big deal, just was surprised.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great feedback Elliot. We used to provide towels but could not keep up with them after one year since they were constantly lost and stained with suntan lotion as some guests take them to the beach. It is easy to provide but very time consuming to clean and account for every week. We apologize for the inconvenience and may revisit this policy in the future. Thanks again and hope to see you back soon.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, and well kept. My family and I truly felt at home away from home! The location is also great...close to the beach and stores in the surrounding area.
