Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I'm Paul Reed the owner of Cielo Vista our awesome bayside home in Gilcrist TX. We finished building our home 7 weeks before Hurricane Ike hit. We were one of the lucky ones that sustained little damage. We think this is the best home to enjoy your vacation at because you have access to Rollover Bay and private pier from your back yard and better yet Gulf of Mexico drive-on beach access just 500 ft out the front door.

Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach:
We love to fish and catch crabs. We also love Kayaking and more than ever beachcombing. Enjoy hour very own private lighted pier with power, water, an fish cleaning table.
