Recent Gilchrist vacation rental reviews

This is our family’s go-to summer vacation beach getaway. This year we were so surprised at ALL the upgrades! The outdoor bars, swings on patio, outdoor TV’s. The whole house received a makeover with the fresh paint job, new oven and so much more. We slept 5 families with their babies comfortably. The sunsets on the porch are always so beautiful. The beach right across the street is perfect! I love the location as the beaches are not crowded and the restaurants and grocery stores are a short drive up the road. Definitely try Stingaree Restaurant! We already can’t wait to go back!!

Spaciously home. Great location. I would not recommend for handicapped visitors. No lift and there are a lot of stairs. The bed in master was terrible. We slept in the twin beds the next night. Only one TV in the entire home.

Drive directly east from Houston to find Gilchrist along State Highway 87, about 17 miles from Bolivar Point on the Bolivar Peninsula. The resort town is small and, as with most Southern cities, hospitable and welcoming. If you're looking to experience The Gulf without the noise and crowds, Gilchrist and nearby Crystal Beach offer the perfect vacation spot.

Gilchrist's Rollover Pass is world famous for its plentiful catch. This 200-foot wide, eighth-of-a-mile-long channel meets Galveston Bay and The Gulf of Mexico, allowing fish to swim back and forth along the two bodies of water. Known for its large variety of fish, this spot is ideal for any anglers who are always in search of the next best fishing hole.

Nearby Bolivar Peninsula is a major attraction for visitors of Gilchrist. With 27 miles of beaches easily accessible from your vacation home, the peninsula is perfect for fun in the sun on the Texas coast. Dig your toes in the sand as you read your favorite book, or bring along a paddle board to let loose in the water before returning for a sunset cocktail on your deck.
