Surfside Beach, Texas
The house is only steps from the beach. This house is technically on the second row, but has an unobstructed view of the beach and the ocean. Beautifully appointed interior. The view from the deck is what sold me! It is located in the popular, quiet subdivision of Swan Lake. Surfside Beach was voted 'Best Gulf Coast Beach Town' by Gulfscapes Magazine.

Dear Janis, I wish you had contacted me upon arrival or at anytime during your stay regarding the condition of the house. I would have taken care of it immediately for you. I talked to my house keeper. Her home burnt to the ground prior...More

About the neighborhood
Historical Jetty and Jetty Park located at the end of Pedestrian Beach: If you go early you can see dolphins swimming. This is also a popular fishing spot. When my girls where younger they loved to watch the large ships from all over the world, being pulled by the tug boats and sometimes escorted by the Coast Guard :). There is a rocky area near the public beach where the crabbing is good. If you reach in the cracks of the rocks you can get small conch shells. This is also the best place for waves if you want to surf. There is a kayak and boat launch a short distance from the house on the bay side.
Old Velasco: Key Texas port of entry during the civil war. This was also the area of the first collision in arms between Texas colonists and the Mexican Military in Texas' War for Independ...
