Why Walt Burger chose Kempner Park

Vicki and Walt already have a lovely beach front property in Sea Isle on the West End of Galveston. We decided to purchase a home close to the pleasure pier and skate park for our guests that like to be closer to the action in town.

What makes this house unique

Close to the Plaesure Pier, the Float bar, Skate park, tennis courts and playground. Garage has room for two cars.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I cannot thank you enough for allowing my family to stay at your beach house. It truly gave us the best time we've had since we started visiting Galveston. The house felt so comfortable and welcoming and the location was perfect. Everything we needed was available. I look forward to renting the beach house again next year. Once more, thanks so much from my family and I.

Excellent Choice!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location! We were walking distance from just about everything on the island. The Pleasure Pier was practically in the back yard. We walked to the Galveston Convention Center for our competition and found some really fun little places to eat. Float and the Spot are just a couple of blocks down the street. I didn't even move my car all weekend! The owners provided everything that we could possibly need for our trip. The house would definitely sleep two families comfortably. Big, fluffy pillows on nice, soft, clean beds were provided in every room. The kids enjoyed the foozball table and stereo in the garage. They have a nice little picnic table area in the back yard as well. We will definitely be back this summer!

We just loved this house and location!!!

  • 5 of 5

House is walking distance to several bars, restaurants and of course the beach. Kitchen has more stuff than our kitchen at home. Price was great for a four bedroom house and a loft this close to the beach and the pleasure pier. Also had the largest garage we have ever seen. We could not find a house this close to the beach with a two car garage anywhere. And they had garage door openers in the house for us. You need to stay at this house. Thank you Walt!!!! We will be back soon and will tell all of our friends to book it!

Great place for larged group walking distance to beach!

  • 4 of 5

Home was large and has plenty of room for very large groups. Home was fully stocked on supplies and even had some toys for kids. Walking distance to the beach, made for not having to drive or get vehicle sandy. Close proximity to pleasure pier, does have lots of bars around.

Lovely House

  • 5 of 5

The layout of this house was perfect for our family (4 adults, 7 children). The kitchen is very well furnished with anything you might need for cooking and baking. The beds are comfortable and there are plenty of towels provided for everyone. It's an older home, but full of character. The kids loved the park and splash pad, right across the street. Since we were within walking distance of the beach, we were able to avoid getting our vehicles full of sand. Our last night we walked to The Pleasure Pier, and enjoyed a fun filled evening. Thank you, Mr. Walt, for allowing us the use of your house. We really enjoyed it!
