Property description

Welcome to SeaQuest! Located just 5 miles west of High Island near Roll Over Pass with unobstructed views of the beach and ocean this beautiful and spacious home is perfect for 1, 2 or 3 couples or a family or two.

The beach and ocean are a short, flat walk (about 200 feet from our door to the sand) from our home. Or pack up the car with coolers, beach towels and chairs, boogie boards and the grill and drive right up to the beach. Spend the day walking the beach, shelling, building sand castles or just watching the dolphins frolic in the waves. Enjoy it-its your beach! Sip your first cup of coffee on the upper deck while watching the sun come up over the bay and return from the beach in time to enjoy a glass of wine while you watch the sun set.


Please note that this house is Oceanfront (the ocean is clearly visible with no other houses in between it and the ocean). It is not Beachfront (directly on the sandy beach). The beach is across the street just 200 ft from our front door. You can walk or drive right to the beach.
This is not a party house and is reserved for our more discerning guests who will appreciate and respect it.


Again: Welcome to SeaQuest where a life time of fond memories begin.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: Our beach home is owned by two couples from Burlington Wisconsin who have been life long friends and business partners. We particularly enjoy spending time in Texas with our children and grandchildren and really feel like the Bolivar Peninsula is our home away from home.

Why Gilchrist, Bolivar Peninsula, TX, USA:
While visiting my sister in Beaumont a few years ago we decided to spend the afternoon in Galveston. As we drove through Crystal Beach we fell in love with the area. We had SeaQuest built in 2005 and have been enjoying the fun, sun and warm hospitatlity of the Texas coast ever since.
