Cute and cozy, direct oceanfront

  • 4 of 5

Traveling with small children, we enjoyed having two bedrooms. We also liked the open floorplan and having everything on one level. The fenced deck was perfect for the pups. Simple and sensible. Love the views, directly on the beach. Even though it rained almost the entire time, we still got to watch the ocean and hear the waves. Easy to find and everyone had a great time, even Dominos delivered to us!

Great location

  • 3 of 5

The location is wonderful. You don’t need a car, because a restaurant is near by within walking distance. However, it could have been a little cleaner. Although he sheets seemed washed, they had stains and it was pretty dusty overall.

Never again...EVER

  • 1 of 5

If you are looking for a "beach front" home and NOTHING ELSE- this is the house for you.

(Keep in mind ppl speed down this beach front- unsafe for small kids).

What a horrible experience.

We were lost in getting to this home, with phone calls not answered by the owner- & msgs left for him were not returned either. The TV system runs on an antenna- and if the wind blows- you get NO channels whatsoever.

Mold on the ceilings and walls (literally covered by "paper towel" taped to the ceiling and another mold area was covered by an American flag)...broken blinds on the windows, half-working window a/c units throughout the house (that don't touch the Texas heat on a hot day). The stove oven did not work (noticed this on a previous review, so owner is aware of malfunctioning oven).

If it rains, the Rain pools underneath the home (NO drainage system apparently) and so we were forced to wade water up to our Knees in order to leave the house each day- for 2 days. Exposed wiring throughout the house up near the ceilings.

The "sidewalk" is really an assortment of boards thrown down- with screws sticking up/ out of them in various random places.

There's No designated OFFICIAL parking spot for this home- we argued with the passerby persons that we were parked where we had been told to park - for renting this "beach home." When you arrive back home, you hope nobody has taken your "designated" parking - because then parking becomes a nightmare and you'll park down the street a good ways.

All in all, this home made our vacation turn into a miserable experience. Money wasted & We will NEVER stay in this house again. Ever.

Just don't do it.

We had a great time and looking forward to another trip. House was clean and had every thing we needed. Could not have had easier access to the beach.

Very poorly maintained. Wasted money for cleaning services!

  • 1 of 5

This property should not be allowed to be rented in its current condition. The path leading to the house has numerous nails and screws exposed which could be stepped on. The oven is nonfunctional so we were unable to cook half the food we brought in. The roof had leaked and was stained and molded and was patched with a paper towel stapled to it to stop the drips. The floor tiles in the bathroom are broken and missing pieces and one has a nail starting to come through. One twin bed was missing a bottom sheet. The other twin bed was missing the top sheet. The queen bed had sand in it and had to brushed out before we could climb in, doubtful if it had been changed. The towels were just thrown in the dryer, we had to finish the laundry. When I spend over $1000 to stay four nights, I expect the rental to be safe, clean, maintained, and usable. This unit is none of those things. We have visited Surfside five times and this rental is far below par. Do not rent this house.

Cozy cottage that was exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Dolphin Views was everything we expected and we had a great time there! The house is literally about 15 yards from the beach and the views of the gulf from the covered deck and from the living room and kitchen were spectacular. The house was clean, cute, comfortable and had all the ammenities we needed.
