Latonya Olivier purchased this house in 2009
Surfside is still a relatively undiscovered gem. Very laid back atmosphere without the hustle and bustle of more high profile beaches. Beautifully maintained beaches and friendly residents!
House was perfect for our family (5 bedrooms - 4.5 bathrooms). Bonus beds in upstairs hallway used by our 2 teenage Granddaughters giving their parents more privacy. Access to the beach was great in that we could walk there several times a day while grandparents (who didn't go every time) could watch the fun from the 2 decks without missing anything. House was clean and convenient. Grocery Stores Wal Mart & HEB were nearby in Lake Jackson. Large stove and 2 fridges great. Will recommend it to friends and will probably rent it again in the future. Convenience Stores located very close to house. Curtis & Mary Largent
This was second time we rented this house. We found it much cleaner this year and enjoyed the new washer, dryer, range and upstairs bathtub. We also enjoyed the new lock on the front door. Latonya, your improvements were great! We found the kitchen cabinets clean and organized and stocked with plenty of pans, serving bowls, dishes, crock pot and silverware.
The large kitchen is perfect for multiple cooks. The living room is open and roomy. The deck is our favorite place mornings and evenings with lots of new deck chairs. This house feels like home and we look forward to renting it again next fall. The weather was PERFECT!
We had a wonderful time at The Lighthouse last week for our family reunion with our children and grandchildren. We had 16 family members who were able to attend including 9 adults and 7 children. The dining area and living room provided plenty of seating for our family. Since there are 5 bedrooms (plus a landing with beds), each family had their own "space." There are 4 1/2 baths which worked out perfectly. The kitchen is fully equipped and having a 2nd refrigerator and a large pantry provided plenty of storage space for food for the week. The view from the deck is amazing and the walkover to the beach is right next to the home. We enjoyed swimming, boogie boarding, playing in the sand, crabbing at The Crabbing Pier (just down the road), visiting Sea Center (free aquarium in Lake Jackson), roasting hotdogs and s'mores over a fire on the beach, going hunting for crabs on the beach at night with flashlights (the kids' favorite), as well as playing games indoors (in the heat of the day). We saw dolphins several times while swimming at the beach. Latonya, the owner, was great to work with and quickly responded to any questions we had before our stay. We stayed at a different beach house last year, but all family members agreed that The Lighthouse was much more superior in size, comfort, and accommodations.
Positives: The location of the Lighthouse was the best we ever leased. The beach and ocean view are unobstructed and there is a walkway nearby. The beach was clean and the decks with chairs faced the ocean. The size of the property and number of bedrooms with baths accommodated our large extended family. Parking was adequate. All appliances worked and the kitchen had enough dishes with a grill on the upper deck. There was seating for all in the dining area. The price was expected for the size of the property in this location if it had been in good repair. I would lease again if it was cleaned up and maintenance completed.
Negatives: The house and property needs cleaning, maintenance and exterminating. Furniture was well worn. Blinds and curtain were missing on kitchen window. Beds were not the worst but many needed matresses replaced. TVs upstairs did not work even with DVDs.The flashing between decks and house had rusted out resulting in black mold in the master bedroom at ceiling and floor on front wall. Bathtubs, fixtures, showers were dirty and rusted. Carpet on stairs was filthy and floors even after cleaning stained. Baseboards and woodwork looked like it had not been cleaned in years. Closets were full of junk and the games and puzzles had missing pieces. Sheets left for us to put on beds were okay, some pillows okay, but the towels were so bad I used personal ones for all I could. Two inch roaches were in living area and kitchen. We killed nightly! I was careful to store food in refrigerators and take out bagged trash immediately. There was junk under the house that we had to tie down to keep from blowing around during a storm one night.
This house fit our family just right. The extra beds in the upstairs hallway was a great surprise bonus and was used by our 2 teenage Granddaughters.
Access to the beach was perfect in that we could go several times a day without having to drive. Also we could watch the fun from the 2 decks. (Grandparents might not want to go every time but wouldn't want to miss anything.) The large stove and 2 fridges were great. We will recommend your house to our friends and will probably rent it again in the future.

Our group of 24 had a great time at the " Lighthouse"! Plenty of room to sleep for all. I really liked the layout with a large kitchen ( 2 refrigerators and lots of eating space), family room and master downstairs with the rest of the bedrooms up. Lots of great deck/ balcony space for relaxing outside. Our only problem was that our ac needed freon when we arrived. I was impressed on how fast the owner, LaTonya and her manager,Tammy responded and fixed the situation . Tammy even called the next day to make sure no other issues arose. Latonyas interest in her house is evident and I appreciated renting from someone who responded immediately to any concern I had. That was a difference maker. Thanks for a great weekend!
Our family LOVED, LOVED this great home! The owner was very accommodating as well and it is RIGHT ON the beach. There had been a lot of rain so mosquitos were very bad, but we just sprayed up and enjoyed the realtive quiet. Tanya is very nice and her person who takes care of the beach house helped us when we had a problem remembering our code.
We will be back next year for sure if not this fall. Very convenient and very comfy with lots of room for a big family get together.
