  • Great House! Great Value!


    This house is best of the best when it comes to beaches near Houston. Easy in and out, killer views of both the Gulf and the back bays, and very comfortable sleeping arrangements. This house can easily sleep 16+

  • Great house!


    We loved this house! The first thing we noticed when we walked in is how good it smelled. It was very clean and very well laid out. The master is on the bottom floor with the living room and kitchen, and the other three bedrooms are upstairs with another living area. It worked perfectly for us and all the kids. The house is very well stocked, including coffee pods and laundry supplies. The only thing I would recommend bringing is extra blankets. The AC worked great. At one point the water pressure went down too low, but I called the owner and they reminded me that the filter might need to be changed as it gets clogged with sand. It was pretty easy to change. I highly recommend this house. The trek to the beach is a little further than I'm used to, but we purchased a wagon which made it easy to carry all of our stuff. It is also a drive on beach, so you could always drive your stuff down there.

  • Modern surfside


    Would not stay at house again! Party of 8 and could only take one shower at a time! No water pressure! Beds were super hard and not enough towels for 8 people! Had to use beach towels to shower! Not enough cups/glasses so had buy cups to use! Thermostats were programmed so would wake up to house being warm in the morning! Not like we needed ac set below 71! Location was good and ac did blow cold but difficult to use the thermostats! Great view of ocean and inter coastal!

  • Great!


    The house was great. We really enjoyed our stay. We have stayed at the house next to this one for the last 3 years and always enjoyed it but this year it was booked the week we wanted to come. Glad we found Modern Surfside. The provisions inside the house gave indication that the owners and managers wanted to give their guest an atmosphere of hospitality. That is how we felt. The view was great as well. Thanks.

  • Great space, great views, fabulous beach access. Needs some TLC


    The house is well-suited for a family and group. Plenty of space and great access to the beach. The deck is glorious for morning coffee and afternoon relaxing. We all loved being so close to the beach. Unfortunately we had two issues during our weekend stay. While the owner was very responsive, it was a letdown that we had the issues at all - both of which could have been alleviated if routine maintenance was done. When we arrived at 4pm on Friday (the set check-in time), the housekeeper was still finishing up and told us there was no water. The owner was called and came quickly. It was determined that the water filters needed to be changed. Once that was done and we settled in, we realized that the second floor was 80' - the AC was not working. We called the owner and again she was responsive and found an AC person who came at 8pm and was there for over an hour. It was not draining, he got it drained and we had AC. The next day the system stopped working again. We went back and forth with the owner who was having trouble finding someone on a Saturday. She found someone - we had another repairman there again that evening. I missed the family time at the beach because I was with the AC technician. In the meantime, we had done some work to get it draining. With check-in at 4pm on Friday and checkout at 10am on Sunday, the hours we spend with repairman, cut into our time to relax. The owner did extend a 1pm check-out, but only because we asked. My recommendation is to take the time for regular maintenance - replacing filters, AC tune-ups. The property is fabulous, but our experience was diminished by having to manage TWO maintenance issues.

    Manager's Response:

    Jessica, we want all of our guests to rest easy when they stay with us, and we're sorry that you experienced some issues during your trip. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    - When the housekeepers finished the cleaning shortly before check-in, they noticed that the water pressure was low
    -We quickly worked to fix this by replacing the faulty water filter, and it is now working properly
    -We try to proactively service the AC units every 3 months, including changing the filters, and have had it serviced again to ensure it is now working
    Thank you for taking the time to leave us this review, and we hope you give us a second chance now that the issues are fully resolved!
