Why Rebecca Doxey chose Kempner Park

The home at 2802 is a well constructed example of the brick cottages built in the late 20's. It's proximity to the Kempner Park, the beach and it's view of the Hutchins Mansion were deciding factors as well. The fact that we had recently purchased the house next door, for the same reasons sealed the deal.

Great location & comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 enjoyed this home very much! We were close to the beach & activities that met all of our age groups. The home itself was clean with plenty of room for all of us to sleep. Our two dogs also enjoyed their visit, getting to play in the yard and stretch out in the cool house. The owners were very helpful, giving us tips to the area and allowing our children to "help" them while completing a project our first day there. They were very generous!

Very comfortable beds and soft sheets

  • 5 of 5

The beds were such good quality. We all slept well. We enjoyed cooking on the gas stove. The outdoor grill was ready but we ran out of time. The house was very clean. We would highly recommend staying here. We are already planning coming back next year.

Absolutely charming!

  • 5 of 5

Came down for a weekend with our family. When we opened the door we were in love.

The decor was charming, it was spotlessly clean and kept up, and the amenities were great. I was so relieved to see there was a blow dryer.

We couldnt find the sheets to the sofa bed and the owner was there instantly to bring them.

The location was central to everything we wanted to do.

All in all a 5 star stay!
