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. Time wise, these beach houses are closer to Houston than a beach house in Galveston. They will provide you with years of pleasant memories.

* Friday through Sunday. If you want, we can usually let you stay until Monday morning. This rate also applies for the
  Week Day Special: Monday afternoon through Friday morning for the same price as a weekend.

1. Located on Surfside’s East Beach 2. Located on Pedestrian Beach 3. Fireplace 4. Wheelchair accessible 5. Partially wheelchair accessible 6. Large kitchen with island, serving counter, multiple refrigerators & dishwashers 7. The Blue Heron is 2 blocks, Captain's Lookout is 3 blocks, and Captain’s Quarters is 5 blocks (3/10th mile) from the beach. Each of these houses has a large roof level deck that allows you to easily see the beach. 8. The Buccaneer is at San Luis Pass, ten miles past Surfside (toward Galveston).

Sales Taxes —

All prices are plus a Hotel-Motel Tax of 10%. (Galveston's Hotel-Motel Tax rate is 15%, and this difference can add up to several dollars. For example, on an $899 rental at Surfside the tax will be $89.90; at Galveston it would be $134.85. But, it could be worse. Houston is now 17%.)

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 --
    • 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 LookoutWalk three blocks (you'll cross two village streets) and you're on the beach.
    • Captain's QuartersWalk 600 yards (3/10th mile) and you're on the beach.
    • The Buccaneer is back from the beach, but you have an excellent view of the water from both the living room and deck.
  • You will not have a beach for your front yard.
    • 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.
    • Buccaneer, Captain's Quarters and Captain's Lookout have a St. Augustine yard (like in Houston).
