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.

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.

About Ted

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

Ted purchased this house in 2009

Why Ted 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!

First Class!

  • 5 of 5

Property is really nice, freshly decorated, and has everything you need. I've stayed in other properties in Galveston and this is very reasonably priced for the money. Convenient beach access, a hot tub, shuttered windows, close to the Seawall, and owners easy to work with. I will definitely return.

Wonderful stay in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the beach house. it had everything that we needed and more.. it was so nice to sit on the porch early mornings and see the sun rise and the ocean. It was only a few steps to the beach. My family had an awesome time. We are already looking forward to next summer.

Wonderful stay at the BG Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic stay at BG paradise. Ken and Brenda were the best owners we have worked with. Their communication was excellent and they were always available via email or text for questions and updates. The house was perfect for our family with an upstairs suite as well as two bedrooms on the first floor. The house included everything you could possibly need. It was just like home. And the view of the gulf was fantastic. We loved sitting on the top deck in the morning with our coffee and watching the sunrise and listening to the waves.

We highly recommend this property on Galveston beach. It's a nice distance away from the crowded area, but an easy drive to all the restaurants and activities.

Ken and Brenda, thanks for allowing us to stay in your home. We hope to make this an annual family visit, so we will be back.

Incredible Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

Ted and Brenda's home is a well appointed oasis! We lacked for nothing while there. Fully stocked kitchen, comforts of home, books, movies...it's all there. With the added benefit of an ocean view, a grassy path which leads to EASY access to the beach. The beach is perfect for walking in the early AM and seeing the sun rise. Not crowded. Great for families.

It's quiet! Good distance between homes, we heard nary a peep save the birds. In the quietness, lay on the deck and sleep...or read...or watch the pelicans soar overhead. Not wanting as much sun? No problem. There is a SECOND deck , covered, up on the top floor. Lounge chairs on both.

The terrace level provides a perfect hot tub if one desires, or a large spot with plenty of seating and tables to eat/relax in the shade.

The heart of Galveston is a quick drive east. Exploring out further west is another option. The location is perfect.

I do not hesitate recommending this home for smaller as well as larger groups. PLENTY of room for all, but yet you don't feel lost in the home if it's just two of you.

Looking forward to another visit!

!Best vacation my husband and I have ever had!!!

  • 5 of 5

Brenda and Ted are "solid gold", two of the nicest, hospitable people ever. They have made this beach house feel so inviting that it is better described as a "beach-home" than a house.

Paradise looks a lot better in person than in the pictures. The lower deck (with really Big hot tub, grill, lounging/eating area) second and third story balconies ( with lots of seating/lounging); all have an unobstructed view of the beach. There are vacant lots (well-manicured) on both sides of the home and facing the beach; giving us space and privacy that we did not see with most of the other beach houses. This home is in an excellent location.

Love the decor, the colors, the art and the architecture. The kitchen and bathrooms are fully stocked. There were even hair blowers, washer, drier, coffee makers, etc. We didn't watch TV but, there are 5 flat screens with blue ray/dvd players and other electronics. Even booggie-boards under the bunk beds.

I usually have trouble steeping in a different place the first night but, at Paradise, the home feels and is secure (love the automatic storm shutters), very clean and the bed was soooo comfortable. It was so relaxing being there.

Bermuda Beach was wonderful. It's more of a "resident-beach" with board-walk access...it wasn't crowded. The beaches with parking lots were crowded.

We highly recommend BG's Paradise and we will definitely be back.

Thank you Brenda and Ted for opening up your home to us and sharing the joy of Paradise. What a great experience.
