Property description

Paradise
Located on Galveston Island in the quiet neighborhood of Bermuda beach, away from the crowds. A Short 10 minutes to Moody Gardens and Schlitterbaun, 15 minutes to Pleasure Pier and 20 minutes to the Strand. Paradise is situated with an open lot on each side for privacy and permanent green space in front for easy access to the beach. We have unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico, the sunset, the sunrise and even the causeway on a clear day. Enjoy them any time of the year. We showcase the incredibly spacious and relaxing hot tub on the lower patio. Come for a soak and enjoy the view.
Construction
Built like most beachfront homes in Galveston, it sits on 17 foot pilings. We have a manicured yard for the kids to run around and play. All the outside windows are protected with storm shutters, which also serve as blackout shades. The newest renovation is a brand-new, central air conditioning. We are best suited for families with children. We sleep 10 in beds with another 4 in the 2 queen sleeper sofas. Inside it is tastefully decorated with bright colors and accented with Tiffany lamps, oil on canvas paintings, island pottery, wood carvings, and a seashell collection from around the world.
Arrival
We are available for all the questions you may have before leaving your home or during your stay. We have managed all of our properties ourselves over the last 10 years. Our first house (BG’s Sandcastle) was featured in Best Life magazine. We also have a Vacation rental in Sayulita, Mexico (vrbo.com/326903).
Check-in is at 4 PM.
Check out is at 11AM.
On-site Parking for three cars and additional if needed.
RV hook-up fee will apply.

Hot Tub and Lower patio
The lower patio includes a built-in picnic table, comfortable patio furniture, and a charcoal barbecue grill.
Rinse off in your private, outdoor shower, equipped with hot/cold water and soap dispenser. Follow the steam to the 8 person hot tub with countless jets and a decorative light. It’s a fantastic place to enjoy, as you have a private, yet unobstructed view to the ocean. Paradise is enjoyable year round.
The hot tub is emptied, sanitized, and refilled before every guest. The hot tub has a lift and a custom cover to keep it protected from the sand. For your safety there are handrails and a ceiling fan to circulate the breeze that comes through the privacy walls.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

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 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. Ted and Brenda

Why the Owner Chose Bermuda Beach, Galveston, TX, USA:
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!
