This place was adorable and right on the beach, which is great with little kids. The only cons of this place is that the beds are terrible (a piece of foam on a box spring) and the curtain hooks were falling out of the wall. I felt it was odd that someone who would come to inspect would see that and not do anything about it. The decor was very cute and we had a great time!! Loved eating out on the patio looking at the beach.
Thank you for sharing your review. Yes, the curtains were brought to our attention earlier this season and a quick fix was initially done, but we were made aware the quick fix was no longer holding. This issue is scheduled to be fixed this off-peak season, and we apologize that we were unable to resolve prior to your stay. So sorry to hear that the mattresses were not very comfortable for you, but very happy to hear you liked the decor, the view and eating on the patio and most importantly had a great time! We hope to have you stay with us again!
Lots of Fees
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay but with all of the extra fees it cost as much as an extra day! $135 cleaning fee, $33.39 reservation fee, $60 accidental damage fee. Good grief! That’s a lot to pay for a weekend visit.
Thank you for sharing your review, and glad you enjoyed your stay. As additional fees are to be expected and guests should always have the ability to review the total cost prior to making payment, our goal is to be as transparent as possible so our guests can make an informed decision. Please contact us if there's anything else that we could have done, as we're always looking for ways to improve.
Perfect family vacation spot
This little rental property and location were perfect. We took two young kids down to Surfside for a quick trip, and we couldn't have been happier. The house was nice, and it was super close to the beach despite not being ON the beach. The beach itself was beautiful and has a tidal pool close by, along with the jetty. Both adults and kids were very happy! Just a friendly heads up to future renters (and this isn't a complaint) , there aren't a lot of *extras* on the property. No salt & pepper or seasoning, two detergent tabs for the dishwasher, two trash bags, no laundry detergent... stuff like that. Just be aware of what you need to bring :)
Thank you for sharing your detailed 5-star review, as it may be helpful to future guests when planning. Agree with you about the location to the beach and so happy your family enjoyed their stay! Please come back and stay with us again soon!
Clean and fully furnished
The house was exactly as described. It's very clean and fully furnished. The neighbor to the right, Trinidad, was so friendly. My husband and I enjoyed talking to him. They definitely control the A/C unit, but the breeze outside cools the house down in the afternoons fairly quick. We were outside during the day so not sure how warm it gets. The fishing is not so great here unless you fish off the jetty and it's VERY crowded.
We drove to the San Luis Pass and caught fish all day! Be careful, there are jellyfish very close to the shore and we caught a stingray pretty close as well. There are great waves for surfing! We stayed a week so it would have been nice to have more thank 2 trash bags and 2 rolls of toilet paper, and the remote control to the TV sucks the batteries dry, we had to replace them every other day and we only watched TV about an hour at night, besides that....we LOVED the house! Would definitely stay here again!
Thank you for sharing your 5-star review. It's also a perk to have nice & interesting neighbors! We apologize for any AC issue you may have experience, and it shouldn't be controlled, besides requesting guests not turn below 70, as units on the coast with high humidity have a tendency to freeze if lower than that, and so sorry about the TV remote; that does sound extreme. At certain times jelly fish & stingrays may be closer to show than we like, so great advice is to always be aware. Please keep Ryson Vacation Rentals in mind for your next vacation. We look forward to seeing you again!
Surfside Thunder roars
Property is close to the beach. Nice to sleep with the waves crashing all night long. Rather close to the jetty where large ships come in - great to watch the big ships come in!
Only a couple of suggestions. Property is only minimally equipped with kitchen equipment. First place we have not found a corkscrew to open a bottle of wine. Also needs warning to bring your own bottled water for drinking. We brought some but had to buy more. Locals said they don't drink the water and you can get purified water by the police station. Tried to use tap water for hot tea but could not drink it. Fine for showering and washing dishes.
Location is what you pay for. Interior, while nice is not a wow. Exterior is well weathered probably due to proximity of the gulf. This is the place the locals come to surf. If you like surfing seems like an excellent location for a base.
Well appointed house on the beach with cons
Lovely little house almost right on the beach.
The kitchen has just about all the cooking utensils you will need. Nice bathroom.
CONS - mattresses are very hard - think sleeping directly on a box spring.
You cannot control the thermostat - the average temperature in the house was 78 and at times got up to 81. I understand trying to save a little money on the electric bill but in southern Texas that is unacceptable. We did not contact the vacation rental company regarding the thermostat because it was the hottest in the house around midnight and all night long.
Also - you must have bug spray for mosquitos.
