Dog-Friendly Oceanfront Haven with Huge Covered Deck, Water Views & Beach Access

Fix yourself a cold drink and take in the sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico from your private deck when you stay at this comfortable Gilchrist beach house. Located right across the street from 27 miles of pristine beaches, this elevated, dog-friendly vacation rental is the perfect destination for a restful, relaxing ocean retreat.

This home lies on the secluded Bolivar Peninsula, about 30 miles from Galveston and just outside the small town of Gilchrist. With the sand and surf just a few steps away, you'll have incredible access to one of the most uncrowded stretches of beach on the Texas coast. Fly a kite in the breeze or wade in the warm water to your heart's content! For a change of pace, head east to the Smith Oaks Sanctuary for world-class birdwatching, or catch a free concert at Stingaree Restaurant and Marina.

When you're not exploring the island, you'll love spending your leisure time at this unique, family-friendly retreat. Beautiful hardwood floors create a cool, comfortable place to relax while watching TV or surfing the free WiFi. Pick up some fresh fish from the market and fix yourself a delicious seafood dinner in the fully equipped kitchen, then head downstairs to the covered mezzanine to dine in the open air as the ocean sparkles in the distance. For a small fee, you can even bring your canine friends along to join in the fun too! (Two dogs max, please.)

The beach is waiting - book your stay in this delightful vacation home today!

Our smart home technology will alert our team if excessive decibel or occupancy levels are detected, allowing us to reach out directly with a friendly reminder rather than risking a noise complaint from a neighbor.
