Property description

This is 'Cielo Vista' our bayhouse located directly on Rollover Bay in Gilchrist, Tx. and easily reached from Houston, Galveston, or Beaumont. Crystal Beach is about 6 miles away. However you'll have uncrowded beach access to the Gulf of Mexico only 500 ft south of the property.

House features a 360 wrap-around deck so you can 'chase the shade'.

Excellent Fishing and Crabbing just out your back door from your own private lighted pier with power, water, fish cleaning table...no need for a boat. However, if you do have a kayak/canoe...you can access many great fishing spots just minutes after pushing off from the bank.

Enjoy all the wonders of the Beach without the congestion of other more popular beaches.

Historic Galveston is an exciting ferry ride away. Visit the historic Strand, Moody Gardens, Seawall, or Schlitterbahn water park.

HOUSE RULES AND IMPORTANT REMINDERS:
1. NO MORE THAN 10 PEOPLE at “ANYTIME” on the property. We have full-time neighbors and they’ll give us a call if this is violated…you’ll be asked to leave the property and forfeit your remaining rental days and deposit. Don’t be offended…this has rarely been an issue because 80% of our renters are repeats…but we’ve had a few very disappointing episodes.
2. LINENS can be found on top of the utility room counter. Additional linens can be found in plastic bins located under the bunk room beds and master bedroom bed.
3. PLEASE REMOVE SHOES before entering the house.
4. NO FIRES may be built anywhere on the property with the exception of the BBQ grill for cooking.
5. NO MOUNTING of any items onto the pilings under the house or located above where the house is located.
6. NO TRASH left in the house, on the decks, under the house, or on the Pier. It all goes in garbage bags and placed in the twin green receptacles street-side
7. NO DIRTY DISHES in the dishwasher or in the sink
8. NO CRAB TRAPS left in the water. Please remove them, along with any bait, and stack under stairs.
9. STRIP BEDDING, TOWELS, DISHTOWELS and leave on floor in utility room. You DO NOT have to wash linens (nor should you…you’re on vacation)
10. KAYAKS ARE NOT FOR GUEST USE Thanks for not disturbing them.
11. DO NOT ROLL DOWN SECURITY SHUTTERS
12. REPLACE KEYS in lockbox when you depart at the end of your stay

Suggestions:
1. MOSQUITOS I must admit I’m amazed at some renters who have complained about Louisiana’s state bird  In the summer months more so these can be pesky. A BIG help to you will to bring down a Raid Yard Sprayer or similar product. It will attach to our hose you’ll find downstairs and by spraying the entire yard you will notice a huge improvement. There is also a hose upstairs and you can spray the deck as well…but the grass is usually your biggest culprit. You’ll also need to apply a deet-based spray to yourself as well especially in the evenings but the yard spray will be your best friend.
2. WHERE TO EAT Stingaree is great…right on the intracoastal waterway…and about 6 miles or so from the house headed West on 87 http://stingaree.com/ Steve’s Landing is really good and on the intracoastal waterway and in Crystal Beach http://www.steveslanding.com/ Tiki Bar is also good…it’s a bit further and just past Crystal Beach road on the right http://www.crystalbeach.com/Tiki%20Beach/index.htm Fantasea BBQ is within walking distance just before you get to Rollover Pass on the right. Excellent Burgers and other things but are usually closed in the Winter and early Spring months. http://www.facebook.com/pages/FANTASEA-BBQ-Grill/101022119945736
3. WHERE TO GET GROCERIES Gulf Coast Market west on 87 about 8 miles on the right…they have anything you could possibly need http://www.merchantcircle.com/business/Gulf.Coast.Market.The.Big.Store.Crystal.Beach.TX.409-684-2400
4. WHERE TO GET BAIT and ICE Capt Jacks is just down the road on the right before rollover pass Ms. Nancy’s is on the left just as you cross Rollover Pass
5. WHERE TO RENT GOLF CARTS Golf Cart Connections 409-963-7725 or http://www.thegolfcarconnection.com/
6. MAPQUEST LINK http://mapq.st/1h1aYdj Google’s is not accurate.
