About Carol and Ron Chavez
We came to Galveston to go on a cruise with our family in May 2016. We were celebrating our 20th Anniversary, our grandson’s High School graduation and our granddaughter’s college graduation. We rented this beautiful home before our cruise and stayed another 2 nights after our cruise. While sitting on the front porch and enjoying this home after our cruise, we found out the owner was thinking about selling the home. We contacted her and we were very fortunate to be able to purchase this wonderful home in July 2016. We love this home very much and we hope you will too!
Carol and Ron Chavez purchased this House in 2016
Why Carol and Ron Chavez chose Kempner Park
Our family fell in love with this home as soon as we drove up to the house. We had 7 people in our group and looked at several different homes before choosing this house. The neighborhood is very quiet, right in the middle of Seawall Blvd and friendly. The home is only 1 short block to the Seawall and the beach. “The Spot” is also only 1 block and is a fun place to hang out. There is a restaurant, Sports Bar, Tiki Bar and live music. Pleasure Pier is a short walk of less than 1 mile. There are amusement park rides as well as shopping and Bubba Gump's Seafood and Shrimp Co. We also found a delicious Bar B Q place named Queen's within easy walking distance-35th and Ave S. Delicious Bar B Q and great people.
What makes this House unique
One of our favorite parts of this home is the large front porch. There is nothing better than sitting on the front porch and feeling the breezes from the Gulf. If the front porch wasn't enough, the backyard is another awesome feature of our home. Sitting in the conversation area under the grapefruit tree and listening to the water fountain is a wonderful way to end your day at the beach. The lights in the tree, on the lighthouse and the solar lights complete the ambiance. The home has a completely privacy fenced backyard as well as the side yards. Plenty of room for children and/or dogs to safely roam and play. You feel like you are in a sanctuary!

Perfect beach house
Perfect location! Owners are wonderful! House is amazing!!!!!!!
We stayed here (two adults, 12 year old, two year old) for the fourth and it was amazing. We watched fireworks from the front porch and walked to the beach each day. Loved being so close to the beach (and not having to deal with parking), the house is adorable and had everything we needed. We will be back!
We absolutely loved our stay. The house is so close to the beach and things to do. It's adorable and felt very spacious for our family of four. Everything is labeled so well, it was a total breeze. Would definitely stay here again!
Enjoyed our time in Galveston at this house.
The house was clean and cute Loved that the house was so close to the beach. We had everything we needed. Would stay here again
The house is adorable! It has everything you need. The beach is basically across the street. The owners checked in and made sure we had everything we needed.
We will definitely be back!!!
These are some of the fun activities my family enjoys around Galveston: The Beach-only 1 short block from the home, at the beach you can boogie board, surf, swim, fish, build a sand castle, fly a kite or just walk and look for shells. You can also rent an umbrella and chairs for the day Seasonal).
