What Renters Like and Dislike About Surfside

I like going to the beach because it is right in front of my house. Everything is amazing here , I love it.

There is a one coffee shop next to my house. Me and my husband go there all the time. The only time we close is Thursday mornings. Which could be good After our morning yoga Routine.
