When you consider the location and quality of these Surfside Beach, Texas beach houses, they are very reasonably priced.

They are big and roomy. Even our smallest beach house will be more comfortable than a condominium or a suite in a hotel and they will provide you with years of pleasant memories. If you have any questions please call us at 713-995-6111 or email at

Considerations when renting “Off of the front row”

Most people prefer staying on either the “front row” or on Beach Drive (the street that parallels the Pedestrian Beach). But, walking a few blocks to the beach can save you quite a bit of money.

To get to the beach from these off of the “front row” houses –
  • Buccaneer is back from the beach, but you have an excellent view of the water from both the living room and deck.
  • Blue Heron — Walk one block, cross Bluewater Highway (two lanes and 40 mph), walk one more block and you will be on the beach.
  • Captain's Lookout — Walk three blocks (you'll cross two village streets) and you're on the beach.
  • Captain's Quarters — Walk 600 yards (3/10th mile) and you're on the beach.
You will not have a beach for your front yard.
  • Buccaneer, Captain's Quarters and Captain's Lookout have a St. Augustine yard (like in Houston).
  • The Blue Heron property is built up, but it is next to the tidal salt flats and you will often have water standing on the lots next to you. This location is very attractive to large coastal birds. There is a good possibility of viewing Pelicans, Blue Herons, Spoonbills, Egrets, etc. etc.

Refund of Security Deposit

Security Deposits are 100% refundable so long as house is left in good, clean condition and the terms of our Rental Policies have been met. We are very good about promptly returning security deposits. Your deposit will usually be returned in less than half the time the beach house rental companies require.
Back to Top

Sales Taxes (10% vs. 15%)

We are required to collect a 10% Hotel tax. (Galveston is 15% and Houston is now 17%). This difference in tax rate can add up. For example, if your Surfside Beach rental is $899 your rate will be 10% and you’ll pay $89.90 in taxes. If the house is in Galveston your rate is 15% and you’ll pay $134.85.
