Quality stay! Chandler and his dad Ken were very kind. This place is great for a budget stay near Galveston. A Walmart is about 8 minutes away to the north if you need to grab anything and Galveston is 18 minutes to the south.

Chandler's place was a great and neat stay! Chandler was flexible, kind, communicated well before hand and the room had a setup for coffee.

Chandler's place was clean, quiet, and a warm space. Dogs were friendly. I enjoyed my stay. We didn't get a chance to visit much this time, but hopefully next. Thanks!

Chandler and his father have a beautiful home and were fantastic hosts. While we only had a brief stay, I'd be confident in saying that this is the experience that airbnb should always hope for.

I stayed with Chandler and Ken (his dad) for a month while on a medical school rotation in Galveston. I absolutely loved my stay and was sad to leave. From the beginning they made me feel welcomed and at home. I had dinner with them several times a week, multiple times they either brought me food or Ken cooked - and oh my goodness, the most delicious BBQ ribs! Ken even packed me some "to go" in a cooler when I left. He treated me like one of his kids, always making sure I was ok (and fed haha)! They have several super sweet dogs which Ken rescued from negligent or abusive owners, I absolutely loved them but if you're not a dog person they would probably go above and beyond to accommodate you. Everything was clean and tidy, he has the cutest back yard with plants, birds and a pond. The location is perfect right in between Houston and Galveston. The interstate is three minutes from their house. This is an older neighborhood, I always felt safe and my car was parked on the street for an entire month with no problems what so ever. Both Chandler and Ken are some of the most amazing, nicest people ever. I've stayed at several airbnbs and have never gotten this sense of family and community anywhere else. They both went above and beyond to make me feel welcomed and comfortable. Thank you so much Chandler and Ken, hope to see you all again!!

Chandler and his dad are fun hosts and the house is lovely. Chandler's dad actually did much of the house renovation - and what a job - beautiful woodwork inside, comfortable furnishings. Really felt at home. Very clean!
