About Debbie and Pernell

We love and live to enjoy life! We are blessed with a beautiful family, career and now this awesome beach home. We work really hard, so we can play really hard. We love to have family time, travel, and fish. We designed this house to share with lots of family and friends and hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do. Our goal is for all of our guests to sit back, relax, and love Galveston as much as we do.

Debbie and Pernell purchased this house in 2014

Why Debbie and Pernell chose Kempner Park

We love the beach, love to fish, and most of all we love family time! Therefore, with Galveston only one hour away, we all decided this was the perfect place. Galveston has so much history, charm, GREAT restaurants, shopping and so much more to see and do that you can easily spend a week here and never run out of things to do. It also has the world's longest continuous sidewalk which attracts walkers, joggers, bicyclists, skaters and many more activities. So, if you like to be active, it's a great place or, if you prefer to relax, just grab a good book and enjoy the beach!

Since we can not retire just yet, we wanted to allow others to enjoy Galveston and our home as much as we do; therefore, we designed and furnished our home with comfort and entertainment in mind. Consequently, it's not just a vacation rental, it's a vacation home!

A Breeze Away has been fully renovated with all new appliances, remodeled bathrooms, refinished floors and a newly added master suite with private entrance to the deck and backyard. It is like a brand new home, but maintains the charming, historic cottage look and feel of the early 1900's.

What makes this house unique

A Breeze Away is just that. We are a breeze away from the beach, a breeze away from the Strand and a breeze away from Houston!

For parking ease, we have a long driveway the length of the property with access from the front of the house or the alley. You can easily park your boat or 4 large vehicles without relying on street parking.

If you like entertaining outdoors you will love our backyard retreat with a privacy fence, large deck and plenty of seating areas.

This wonderful home is located just a couple of blocks from the Seawall/beach. Galveston Island has over 32 miles of beaches, and some of the best are within the boundaries of the City’s urban core. It is the ONLY place in America where an historical Southern city sits right on the beach. This means that Galveston is NOT a typical beach town, but a small 19th-Century city, upgraded with today's conveniences, and integrated with modern structures. This creates a totally unique cityscape, which is made up of hundreds of historic homes, a vibrant historic downtown area, an active port and set on the eastern end of The Island is one of the busiest ship channels in the world. There are many restaurants and bars near the home, especially along the Seawall. Parking on the Seawall is $8 a day and since you register your license plate you can move anywhere along the Seawall during the day and not pay more. Parking downtown in the historic Strand District is per hour. You pick a parking spot, take the number off of the space off of the curb and enter that into one of the parking kiosks. Then you are ready to enjoy the Strand district. There you find the historic port of Galveston. With it's many shops, bars and restaurants to enjoy. And don't forget to see the historic Victorian mansions along Broadway. Bishop's Palace and Moody Mansion are open year round for guided and self-guided tours. Fantastic homes.

Private, clean, well maintained

  • 4 of 5

The house was clean and well maintained. We liked the layout, it worked great for our two families that we're there. Since the master bedroom was located on the opposite side of the other bedrooms we were still able to feel like we had privacy and space if we needed it. Loved how the back deck was right off the master bedroom. The beach was in walking distance, but there were not easy accessible sidewalks. Had to walk most of it in the street with strollers and our beach geer.Would stay here again if we came back to the area.

This home was perfect for out family. It was beautifully decorated with such a homey feel. And it was well stocked with any kitchen or bath item you would possibly need! I love that they supplied coffee, coffee filters and sweetener. It was so close to the beach and the seawall restaurants. We will definitely go back!
