Mermaid's Tale has 4 separate bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a washer/dryer on site. There is a nice large area for sunning on the upstairs deck as well as a large area covered for shade. There is also an additional cement area downstairs perfect for an afternoon BBQ. The property is just a few steps from the sand and surf with a great view of the Ocean. There is also an outside shower - great for rinsing off from a day at the beach before going upstairs.
We rented this property for our annual family vacation in Surfside Beach. We loved the fact that the deck had a sun area and a shade area. The addition of the swing on the deck was very nice, we enjoyed swinging in the evening. The outdoor shower was also nice. Four bedrooms was ver nice so each couple had their own space. Thanks for sharing your lovely home! Great rental from start to finish :)
We made last minute plans for this rental and had limited options but figured this house would be sufficient for a weekend away which, it was. I would describe this beach house as a classic rental, meaning the house was a little older, some wear and tear (e.g., stained bathtubs), with minimal extra features. The house did the job and we had a good weekend but we would not return for a few reasons. First, we paid for the linen rental but when the linens arrived the towels and linens smelled like smoke, I informed the property managers so hopefully this won't happen to future renters. Second, after reading the rental agreement, I called one of the managers to confirm cleaning expectations and was told that rarely are guests charged and to leave the property as we found it. Unfortunately that was not the case. The property manager charged us for excessive cleaning and a broken chair, which was broken when we arrived. Although I did not notify the mangers immediatley, I did send an email letting them know about the chair and few things that were broken or needed attention which, I thought was sufficient.
Be advised, you are expected to clean this beach house thoroughly. We did basic cleaning as per the contract but apparently full cleaning is required. Items were were charged for include a dirty trash can, freezer rack covered with ice, spills in fridge/freezer, dirty floors (which we swept and vacuumed), sandy tub, and a dirty toilet. The contract did not stipulate the excessive cleaning that was required. Moral of the story, you get what you pay for.
Surfside Beach, voted Best Gulf Coast Town by Gulfscapes Magazine, has miles of beautiful beaches most of which you can drive on, take long walks, and enjoy kiting. There are numerous canals, bays and popular fishing spots all located 58 miles south of Houston, TX. Surfside is where you will find a community of people who love the area and welcome visitors. A family oriented community far enough away from the hustle of a commercial beach town to enjoy the relaxation of a beach vacation but close enough to the hot spot of the Galveston boardwalk.
