About the owner: We are Islanders by Choice. IBC Definition one who become an inhabitant of Galveston Island with intention. We truly enjoy sharing our home on the Island. We have rented property to guests since 2002. BG’s Sandcastle, our first property was recently removed from the now “public beach.” We were fortunate to find this home although it too was damaged by Ike. We put a lot of sweat and effort into BG's Paradise and trust us, it won't go unnoticed. We manage everything ourselves, from our home nearby. We feel we are blessed to do this, especially when we enjoy it so much. We look forward to speaking with you personally.

Why the Owner Chose Bermuda Beach: Our criteria in looking for a vacation rental included the climate, proximity to the beach, affordability, the community and its amenities. Situated on the Texas coast and the Gulf of Mexico, Galveston can be enjoyed year round. BG’s Paradise is on Bermuda beach, the islands the West end. There is a fantastic view of the beach, just steps away. There are no homes on either side which gives you extra privacy.
Galveston's culture and leisure offer something for everyone. It’s history, year-round events, theater, arts, museums, great food, beaches, bird watching, world-class golf and even an indoor water park. Galveston is a treasure trove of these things and so much more!
