About the Owner

We have lived along the Texas Gulf Coast for over 25 years. We have seen Galveston grow into an exciting and beautiful resort city with a small home town culture! We enjoy walking along the beach especially early mornings and late evenings - watching the sun rise and the moon's radiant glow on the waves.

Spring breakers

  • 5 of 5
Our family had an amazing spring break at your beach house! The weather wasn't always sunny but with easy and quick beach access as soon as the sun came out we were able to grab our stuff and go! We enjoyed the spacious rooms and had everything we needed for a relaxing vacation!

Owner's Response: The 2 minute walk to the beach has its advantages!! I'm so happy that your Spring Break wasn't ruined by the rain! I know how much you were looking forward to just getting away from it all!! Our beach atmosphere is so different from Houston's fast pace! We hope you come back in September. Thx again!

Great Rental!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 6 recently stayed here for a weekend. I grew up in Houston so Galveston is very nostalgic for me. Sadly, it rained most of the time but we were still able to take the Bolivar Ferry, visit LaKing's and the Strand, the Aquarium at Moody Gardens, and treat ourselves to a nice dinner at Willie G's. We even managed a couple short strolls on the beach in between rain showers. My little girls found plenty of shells to take home.

We had no problems with this rental house. Everything was as explained. The decor in the house is completely charming. You can tell this owner takes pride in this rental. No Wi-Fi problems at all and it was clean with plenty of towels. The sleeping arrangements worked out perfect for our family. Our oldest teen got his own room while our younger teen slept on the top bunk and his little sisters shared the full below. We found the corner grocery store very convenient.

If I had known it was going to rain, I would have preferred to stay closer to town (we only went to the Aquarium because of the rain), but I think on a sunny trip this house would be perfect because the beach would not be crowded. We made the best of it with movies and board games that we had brought with us. I would stay here again. My kids loved it.

Very Spacious. Right on the beach

My stay at Doc's Quarter's was exactly what I was looking for. The home is very nice and we were able to comfortably sleep 8 on a fishing trip. The owner was very responsive to all my questions and I will definitely be staying here again in the future. Highly recommended!

I have stayed at Doc's Quarter's several times and it never disappoints. Yolanda was extremely accommodating in letting me reschedule due to an illness. The property is always meticulous and it is in a great location. I highly recommend Doc's Quarters!
