Location + Surroundings

This property is situated in a family-friendly community in the County of Galveston in Port Bolivar, Texas. The popular Bolivar Peninsula, a very narrow strip of land that separates Galveston Bay from the Gulf of Mexico, is nearby. At its narrowest point, the peninsula measures a quarter of a mile. It is at this point where the residential and resort community of Gilchrist is located. The Bolivar Peninsula is primarily reached via a 13-minute ferry from Galveston. The only other access is on the Texas 124 to Interstate 10 which takes visitors through Winnie and High Island and ultimately to the eastern end of Bolivar. There is one ferry from Galveston that runs 24 hours a day making it convenient for guests to get back and forth any time, day or night. Surfside Beach is 40 miles from Galveston and Houston is 50 miles away. The town of Crystal Beach is 12 minutes away and offers visitors a lovely beach getaway as well as endless things to see and do. Read More
