When it’s time to get the family together to decide your next vacation getaway, take a closer look at Surfside Beach, Texas, on the Gulf of Mexico. Lone Star State Vacation Rentals can help you bring your family or group of friends to Surfside for a luxurious beach vacation where you can enjoy the seaside lifestyle – plenty of sunshine, miles of beautiful beaches, and an endless list of activities await. Surfside is the kind of place where you can enjoy the family-friendly atmosphere and partake in endless adventures.

Surfside Beach vacation rentals are available in all kinds of shapes and sizes. There are sprawling, lavish gated estates that are right on the beach for the ultimate vacation, and there are townhouses, condos, villas, beach houses, apartments, cottages, lodges, and cabins you can rent for a few days, a week, a month or longer. There are oceanfront rentals close to the beach that are perfect for family vacations, trips, weddings, weekend getaways, family reunions, anniversaries, elopements, and more.

Surfside Beach is a terrific place to vacation, and there are vacation rentals available ranging from smaller studio condominiums to larger residences with five or more bedrooms. Instead of occupying multiple hotel rooms, why not get the entire gang under one roof. At our vacation rentals, you can fix meals for the group, or gather around the table to play board games, reminisce, tell stories, or work on crafts or art projects.

Getting to Know Surfside Beach

Surfside Beach – also known as just Surfside – is located on the southwestern tip of Follet’s Island near the city of Freeport. It is bordered on the southwest by Freeport Harbor, and on the southeast by the Gulf of Mexico. The village of Quintana is across from the harbor. The Intercoastal Waterway forms the northwest boundary in some areas and runs through the northwest part of the city. Bluewater Highway runs the length of Surfside Beach and continues northeast on Follet’s Island for 13 miles, all the way to San Luis Pass and the bridge to Galveston Island. Texas State Highway 332 originates in Surfside Beach and heads to the northwest, past Freeport for 12 miles to Lake Jackson.

The Surfside beach community has a population of slightly less than 500 people, and there are about 900 housing units in the region. It’s known as the “Cradle of Texas Liberty” because the Treaty of Velasco, which ended hostilities between Mexico and Texas, was signed at Fort Velasco, which was located near the community’s present-day city hall.

Surfside is one of the cleanest beaches in Texas. It’s a popular spot for families because of the variety of water-related activities and the fun coastal eateries in the area. Compared to Galveston, Surfside is a much quieter community. It’s also a little more low-key than nearby Crystal Beach. You can get from Surfside Beach to Galveston via the ferry, but there can be a lengthy wait (it’s a busy line). There’s easy parking at Surfside Beach, and you can fish right on the beach.

Surfside Beach Vacation Rentals vs. Hotels

Feel at home … on the beach. When you stay in one of our vacation rentals in Surfside Beach, you’ll get a true understanding of what the beach life is all about. Don’t spend your entire vacation trapsing to and from the beach – just stay there. We have vacation rentals that are a stone’s throw from the water. Wake up, throw on your suit, and hit the beach. Enjoy a beautiful sunrise over the water from your home away from home. In addition to offering a more personalized vacation experience with a unique residence, vacation rentals also provide added amenities and space which typical hotel accommodations can’t match.

Compared to hotels, vacation rentals provide way more privacy and increased space and amenities – call it “bang for your buck,” or whatever. No matter which way you cut it, it means more perks and an enhanced vacation experience for you and your family or group. Our vacation rentals are a hit with families with young children, families with older kids, romantic couples, newlyweds, family reunions, business retreats, and work-from-home, or “workation,” employees seeking a work getaway.

At your vacation rental, you can feel at home cooking in a full-sized kitchen with all the utensils you’d have a home (maybe more.). After a long day on the beach or exploring the area, who wants to get ready again just to go out for a bite to eat. At our vacation rentals, you can prepare your own meals, or have a full dinner delivered right to your door, and enjoy a relaxed dining experience that’s not cramped and, most importantly, quiet and private. When you stay at one of our residences, you can enjoy Filet Mignon in your jammies, or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in your best cocktail dress – and nobody will judge you. The best part is you can do it all, on the beach, under the stars, with your loved ones, with no interruptions or distractions, for as long as you like.
