Hold on to your BIKINI BOTTOMS. You're going to love this place!
2100 sf, 4 bed/3.5 bath, *poolside* family home. Take a stroll to the private boardwalk, which will take you over the dunes and right to a quiet stretch of the beach. "BIKINI BOTTOMS" has been extensively refurnished and redecorated with comfort and convenience in mind. Everything you need to relax and enjoy your beachside getaway is here. And it's ALL new. Welcome home.
On the first floor you will find a comfortable, tastefully decorated master suite with flat screen TV, jacuzzi tub, shower, huge walk in closet with built in shelves and drawers. Just outside the master suite is a family living area with a large flat screen TV and plenty of comfortable seating for relaxing. Also on main floor is the dining room with large table that seats 8 plus 3 more at the breakfast bar, a kitchen with new stainless steel appliances, Corian counter tops, and a well-appointed kitchen. Your pantry is really huge, so pack it up and stay a while!
We have tried to think of everything so you don't have to. Even the dishes match the decor. Laundry room with washer and dryer and half bath are also on first floor.
Upstairs are 3 bedrooms/2 bathrooms -- 2 bedrooms with queen beds and the third has 4 bunk beds. More flat screens upstairs, too. One of the upstairs bedrooms has a wet bar, its own mini-fridge, coffee maker, and an attached bathroom for extra privacy. Sloped, bonus room is super cozy, one of the favorites of visitors. It's your place of refuge, a quiet reading room, with no TV. Enjoy the sun decks upstairs on both sides of the house for tanning, bird watching, or just relaxing.
*And just for the kids* … the upstairs landing has a video game area with beanbag chairs, another flatscreen, a PS2 (with "Rock Star" game, karaoke mike, and instruments!), Xbox, some video games, and a DVD player. Be sure to bring your own movies. TV is also viewable from bunk room, so no need for another one there.
Fenced backyard backs to neighborhood pool, so you can watch your kids from the patio while drinking your morning coffee or sipping cocktails at sunset. There's also a cast iron, adjustable rack "park style" grill in the backyard. Just add some charcoal and you're the grill master. (BBQ tools in pantry.)
Free wifi and house phone. Garage for guest use, extra driveway parking is available for guests. Various pool supplies, books, games and puzzles are also included. So is a high chair. Property is perfect for winter Texans and for families of all sizes. Bed linens, bath towels, wash cloths, bath mats -- all included. 3 night minimum.
Enjoy BIKINI BOTTOMS!!

It was my families first time to stay in this house. The past couple years we rented one street over on Mustang Royal. We are 7 adults, 2 toddlers and 2 babies. It worked pretty well for what we needed in terms of sleeping arrangements for the little ones but I can see it working even better as they get older and can all sleep in the bunk bed room. The downstairs master has a huge closet and was used as a room for my sister's 4 month old and worked well.
The pictures and descriptions on the rental site are very accurate. Everything is decorated beautifully and comfortably. We really loved having such abundant seating in the living and dining room. Something our previous house lacked.
The kitchen is well stocked and the appliances are very nice. It's a bit of squeeze if you have too many cooks in the kitchen but not a big deal.
The backyard patio/space was great for kids to play. We did have to be careful of ants in the grass. Very close to pool but safely fenced.
The walk to the boardwalk is less than 10 minutes but the boardwalk itself is not good for strollers or wagons unless you have help carrying them over the steps.
We liked the location of the house with it being outside of town, we prefer not staying in town because the beach isn't as busy. It's less than 10 minutes to the grocery store, etc.
Other than a bit of mold we noticed in one of the upstairs bathrooms (on a vent) and the awful living room rug (sheds like crazy) it's a great house that we'd have no problem renting again.

I fell in love with the property when I first saw it online fully being prepared for it not to look the same once we got there, but this house looks exactly as beautiful as it does in the pictures! Spacious, beautifully decorated, very well stocked with everything you could need, including some extra stuff like games, and a Playstation and boogie boards. The attention that Starkey Properties gave was excellent as well. Easy, easy transaction. We were three families travelling during Spring Break, but because of the location of this property, we were far away from all the craziness. The neighborhood is beautiful and, while it's a good little walk to get to the beach, it's certainly doable. Can't wait to go again!!

This was a great house for the entire family. Very nice furnishings and very comfortable beds. The weather was uncooperative for part of the trip and the teens were able to find plenty to do utilizing the video games and board games. The distance to the beach was a little misleading. It was more than two blocks to the boardwalk and the boardwalk was long with lots of steps. The upside is that you are able to access (drive) the beach from another area and able to drive up to the boardwalk on the beach side.
