Holiday Rental House
The Bluewater Star is a lovely 2-story beachfront home located on a 1/2 acre lot in Surfside, a small coastal community 35 miles south of Galveston. Over the years, our home has become a preferred destination for many families who return to our home to spend quality time with their loved ones. Nestled in the dunes on a large private lot, we are footsteps away from the beach. Wrap-around decks surround 3 sides of the home and all 4 bedrooms open out to a deck. The living room, with its soaring two-story ceiling provides an unobstructed view of the ocean from anywhere in the house. Outside the back deck, our private walkway takes you over the dunes to the beach. At the end of the walkway a lovely gazebo offers shade and a place to relax away from the house.

Outside the back deck, our private walkway takes you over the dunes to the beach. At the end of the walkway a lovely gazebo offers shade and a place to relax away from the house. This is a wonderful place to enjoy your favorite music and morning coffee while you watch the sunrise and a glass of wine as you watch the sunset. The kitchen is well appointed and has everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal. It is open to the living room and the beautiful wall of windows giving you a million-dollar view of the ocean. The living room has a wood-burning fireplace and over the mantle is a large flat-screen tv with cable, dvd and cd player and and roku. Outside speakers allow you to listen to your favorite music on the deck and also at the gazebo located at the end of the walkway right off the beach. There are 4 bedrooms, two of which are masters with private baths. One master bedroom is downstairs, the other three bedrooms are upstairs. Adults love our home but kids are a priority too; the owners have two small children so there's lots of attention to detail for the little ones including two toddler beds, two cribs and two high-chairs, small dining table. Summer is not the only season to visit the coast. Offseason offers empty beaches and cheaper lodging and an opportunity to enjoy the tranquil surroundings and slower pace without the crowds. We offer minimum stays of three-nights during the Fall, Winter and Spring. During the summer we only offer week-long rentals. If you are interested in a specific date, please book quickly, they go fast. Beds: 2 King Beds, 2 Queen Beds, 1 Double Bed, 3 Twin Beds, 2 CribsMore

About the neighbourhood
Surfside Village is a small beach town on the Texas Gulf Coast. Galveston is a scenic half hour drive up the coast. Our house is in the perfect location - close enough to enjoy the tourism of Galveston and all its attractions and far enough away to enjoy the unspoiled beaches and charm of a small beach community. Lake Jackson, population of about 50,000, is nearby and has a lot to offer the entire family. Be sure to check out the Brazosport Arts and Science Center, visit the planetarium, theatre, fish hatchery. A museum there houses the largest seashell exhibit in North America. Bring your shells in for identification. There is also a public golf course. Summer is not the only time to visit the beach. Offseason has advantages too, especially for those who crave a break from their hec...
Getting around
You'll need a car. A lot of folks also rent golf carts.
