About John Cole
We love the Galveston area -- owning (and renting) a beachfront home makes our time in Galveston affordable. We fell in love with Galveston Island during a hard winter in the DFW area, and while our home near Fort Worth was encased in ice, we were walking along the beaches of Galveston enjoying the sunshine. We find that coming to Galveston during December/January is a great way to 'recharge our batteries' and get away from old man winter for a while!
John Cole purchased this House in 2013
Why John Cole chose Bermuda Beach
This property was one of the larger homes we looked at and it's great beach front location made it a keeper! We like the location of the Sandpiper, as it is very close to town. We really enjoy the many activities available on Galveston Island, including Mardi Gras, Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn, -- there are also 2 miniature golf courses in the Galveston area, Magic Carpet Golf and Pirates Treasure Adventure Golf. There is also the Galveston Railroad Museum, the Port Bolivar Ferry, and excellent fishing off of San Luis Beach. If you’d like to putt around in a leisurely fashion, there are 3 golf cart rental companies on the island. K6 Island Sports, for example, will deliver the golf cart(s) to your front door! Be sure to visit the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier with fun and games for the entire family. There are numerous photo opportunities, such as the Bishop’s Palace, Elissa, Willis-Moody Mansion, the Ocean Star offshore Drilling Rig and Museum, Seawolf Park, the USS Stewart, American Undersea Warfare Center, Galveston Children’s Museum, Bryan Museum, and more.
What makes this House unique
The spacious deck offers a great view of not only the ocean, but the pelicans that fly directly overhead. They, as well as the gorgeous sunrises make for excellent photo opportunities! During your stay, you will find that there are numerous popular restraunts on Galveston Island, including The Spot, Gaidos Seafood Restaurant, Riondo's Ristorante, Miller’s Seawall Grill, Landry’s Seafood House, Willie G’s Seafood & Steaks, Olympia Grill, Grotto Ristorante, Fisherman’s Wharf, Cajun Greek, Fish Tales, BLVD Seafood, Mario’s Italian Restaurant, Bronco Burritos, and many, many more. BTW, if you are looking for something upscale, The San Luis Steakhouse will fit the bill!

Great return visit!
We always love our stays at the Sandpiper. The owners are super responsive and very easy to work with. House was well stocked and very clean, we will be back again next year!
We loved the location, spent time surf fishing. House was great and had tons of room for all 20 of us. Loved sipping wine and watching sun rises on deck. We were also very close to Moody Gardens. Had tons of linens and towels, kitchen was well stocked, house was very clean. Highly recommended!
Loved our Galveston visit!
We really enjoyed our vacation and Galveston. It looks like the house had just been freshly painted too! We spent evenings on the deck with a glass of wine, and during the day we headed down to the beach. We were close to town and there was plenty of room for all 20 of us! The house was very clean and have plenty of towels and linens for everyone! We really like eating at Jimmy's on the pier, it was open air and super cool. We even went to Moody Gardens. Oh, if you do go to Jimmy's on the pier and eat, they give you a free pass to walk out on their super long pier! We had an absolutely fabulous time and can't wait to return!
Really great location, very close to the beach....could easily see the kids fron the desk. Plenty of parking. House was very well stocked and clean. Plenty if kitchen supplies and towels. Will definitely rent again.
Wonderful Views, Close to Town
we really enjoyed staying at this home, we were right on the beach and very close to town. We also really enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the ocean and birds. we went to Moody Gardens while we were there, and checked out some of the downtown restaurants. There is a ton of stuff to do in downtown Galveston and it was a short drive. The house was well maintained and clean, the owners were excellent to work with, highly recommend!
Location was Incredible. Good number of bathrooms nd bedrooms for our party of 11. Kitchen was well stocked and plenty of linens. Little bit dirty and worn but still fun.
