Manager info

About: I grew up on the Gulf Coast and have rarely lived far from the beach. The morning walks on the beach with the cool sand seeping thru my toes, watching the Galveston Air Force (lol....pelicans flying in formation), being out on the wate and all the sights & sounds of living on the coast have always been in my soul. Bienvenidos Y Mi Casa es Su Casa!

Why Kempner Park, Galveston, TX, USA:
An avid kayaker for many years I would bring my kayak in from Houston to Galveston to paddle. One day while treking through the neighborhood I found this lovely house which soon became home for me and my kayak. I have spent many years here on the island enjoying the sunsets, walking the beaches and playing in the waters. I wish this joy and peace for you in the time you are at my lovely home.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
A wonderful spacious upper deck with wonderful cool breezes, tropical gardens, outdoor kitchen & bath, plus a ashort walking distance to dining, beaches, amusement rides, entertainment and night life.
