Laid-back and low-key, Wait n’ Sea is painted a bright and friendly turquoise. Inside, the open kitchen and living space is perfect for small groups to relax and reconnect with ease. A comfy neutral sofa sits against a white shiplap wall and faces the flatscreen television. A classic rattan armchair and beach-inspired decor remind you that you’re on a dreamy beach vacay. Catch a catnap here in the afternoons or host a fun game night with your crew.

The charming kitchen has open shelving set against a white subway tile backsplash. A small peninsula island with bar seating is ideal for serving up some game night snacks or the morning coffee and muffins. And you won’t miss a bit of the action while you’re in the kitchen— it blends seamlessly into the open living area. Outside, a large picnic table is a perfect spot to host an alfresco family dinner at sunset.

Two Restful Bedrooms:

Two private bedrooms lay just off the living space. The first bedroom has a queen-size bed, an armchair, and a flatscreen television tucked into a nook. A door leads out to the sunny deck with ocean views. The second bedroom is the bunkhouse— complete with a twin-over-twin size bunk bed and a twin-over-full-size futon. This bedroom also has a door leading out to the deck. A spacious full-size bathroom is nearby with a step-in shower.

Surfside Beach Bliss:

Tucked into the friendly community of Surfside Beach, this quaint beach bungalow is the laid-back oasis you’ve been searching for. When your group is ready to get sandy, the beach access point is a quick walk down the lane— simply throw a beach towel over your shoulder and go!

You’ll also be conveniently close to a local shop and some delicious restaurants— consider renting a golf cart for getting around this quaint community. For a simple and tranquil Texas Gulf Coast beach vacation that truly recharges your spirit, book a stay at Wait n’ Sea.

5/5 Excellent

loved everything about it, the scent of honey walking in, the cleanliness inside the house, the furniture was nice, no problems whatsoever

5/5 Excellent

Was perfect
I have seen a lot of bad reviews of this property from last year. It is nothing like what I've seen in those reviews. we were able to stay very comfortable with 4 adults 2 teenagers and 2 smaller children. The house was clean and ready to accommodate. The owner was very quick to reply, and we even had the unfortunate incident of breaking my phone, and having no way to check in. But we worked with the owner and within a half hour we were in the house. Beds hold enough people with 2 bunk beds and a queen in master, kitchen is fully functional. you have a small "groceryish" store lees then 100 Yards from the house and the beach is very walkable. overall we will be staying at this property again

3/5 Okay

Our stay was August 2020. To start, the host messaged us when we were about 1 hr away saying that they would need extra time to clean prior to our arrival. So a 4:30 check in instead of 4:00 pm. That was not a problem and so we bought some groceries prior to arriving. Once hecked in, the place did not look like it had been swept or mopped. There was hair on the floors, and TONS of sand/dirt. The place is much smaller than it appears in the photos. There were 2 adult couples, but this place is more suited for one couple and 1/2 small children. Also be aware that there are no closets to hang clothing or to put your luggage in, as well as no dressers with drawers, so your luggage will take up significant parts of floor space (there is little walking space in the bedrooms). Also, the larger bed is not queen size, more like a full size. The host stated we could expect 4 rolls of toilet paper, however when we arrived there was one roll half used, which would not suffice for 4 adults for a weekend. We went to purchase some toilet paper from the corner store. The bathroom also had no hand soap, just the tiniest bit at the bottom of the bottle, also something we purchased at the store. There are no floor towels provided for bathroom and the way the shower was built, nothing prevents the floor from getting completely soaked during a shower. Speaking of towels, we were promised 4 sets of towels that included a bath towel, a hand towel, and a wash cloth. We only got 4 bath towels, 3 wash cloths and one hand towel. There are hooks for a washer/dryer in the bathroom but no washer/dryer. That's fine, but if you are going to provide so few towels, at least also provide an option to wash them during the stay. In the kitchen, there was also only one roll of paper towels available (also about half used) and nothing to dry dishes with and no drying rack for dishes. Again, we would have had to use the few towels we were provided with to take care of this, so instead we also purchased paper towels. We were not very comfortable cooking as the stovetop was severely cracked on the surface. The shower has weak water pressure. The shower curtain at that time looked very dirty and the hooks used to hang it were very rusty. All this to say maybe this can be a great spot for a couple or as mentioned earlier with small children. It is a less than 5 minute walk to the beach and a less than 5 minute walk to a corner store with necessities as well as a couple of takeout.

3/5 Okay

Smaller than advertised
The house was spotless. However the pictures didn’t tell a complete story. The MBR was a converted entry room and only offered a full size bed. The other bedroom had 2 twin size bunk beds but one of the top bunks was partially covered by the low hanging ceiling. There was no dishwasher or washer and dryer. If that was mentioned in the listing then I overlooked it. Finally there just isn’t enough comfortable seating for more than 4 people. And the only place to really eat is the coffee table despite the appearance of bar stools and a bar area. This is not a place to stay if you have teenage kids. One big positive is that we were very close to the beach, 3 to 5 min walk to the water.

5/5 Excellent

Great Surfside spot
Surfside Beach has lots of large, expensive rentals but fewer smaller spots for intimate groups. This place, about 2 blocks from the beach, fills that niche. It was clean, and fully equipped, so you can do all your cooking there if you like. It will sleep seven but is best suited for two couples or a few friends. Highly recommended.
