About the Owner

My husband and I have enjoyed sharing our other beach home and condos (Docs Quarters at the Beach, Docs Quarters at the Seawall and Docs Quarters at the Dawn). We decided to purchase this beach home which is next door to Docs Quarters at the Beach. We found many families with a desire to stay close to the beach and enjoy the relaxation that only a beach can offer! We also wanted to provide vacationers, with multiple family members, the option of sharing the same beach but still having the privacy of being in separate quarters.

Lovely

  • 5 of 5
We were very pleased with how lovely and well stocked the house was. The decks except for one day were wonderful to spend time on. The only thing that kept us from the decks on one day were the mosquitos that got stirred up by something and coated the sliding doors. They weren't there before that day and when we got up the next day they were gone. Having wifi was great so we could communicate with family members and send them pictures on the trip. The beach had seaweed, but the area dedicated to the beach homes had minimal amounts compared to the parts of the beach to either side. We had fun beachcombing. Found it thoughtful that so much info was provided on what there was to do and places to go eat in Galveston. This was the first vacation that my daughters and I have taken together in years. I have two grown daughters and a pre-teen and the opportunities to vacation together are rare. Thank you for making this a comfortable and fun vacation for us!

Disappointed with Beach

  • 3 of 5
The townhome was wonderful. Fully loaded with beach chairs, toys, towels, even spices. We did bring our own supplies just in case but was surprised to find it all there. Our only disappointment was the beach. It was loaded with seaweed!! It looked like they would bulldoze it up on the beach daily but approximately 4-5 feet of seaweed would still come in. It made it impossible to reach the water. The seaweed also caused a bad smell and lots of flies and bugs. This was my daughters first trip to the beach and we were all excited to build sandcastles and play in the water. All we ended up doing was getting bit up from all the bugs despite the amount of bug spray we used. It was a major letdown. Here we were emailing about possible tar from the March oil spill. Never thought to ask about seaweed. I did do a search on the internet to find that this is a bad year for seaweed and apparently it started in mid-May. Yes there is tons of stuff to do in Galveston but it makes it hard when your heart is set on going to the beach. We ended up leaving after 2 nights. Again, the house was lovely and the evenings on the balcony were delightful.

Owner's Response: Thank you Kathleen for your guest review. I was so disappointed to get dinged 2 stars due to the seaweed on the beach but very glad that you also provided information to potential guests that the beach home itself is fantastic, has great balconies and amenities! I agree, this year, the seaweed has been atrocious. Unfortunately, Mother Nature has not taken a liking to Galveston this year! Thank you again for your review!

Very nice place!

  • 4 of 5
Great place to stay. Comfy and homey. Really liked the fact it is a minute's walk from the beach and gas station/grocery store. Great patio too.
Did not have a grill that we could find though.

Owner's Response: Hi Ganesh,

I'm sorry you did not find the BBQ grill! I wish I had known. It is locked in the storage room and the key should have been in the hallway as mentioned in the guest document. I'm glad you found the location convenient to not only the beach, but the local restaurant, gas station and grocery store! We hope that you visit us again soon!

one of the best vacations ever.

  • 5 of 5
We were so pleased with our rental last month. Doc and Yolanda were so nice and available if we needed them. Pictures really didn't do justice the the town home. It was beautiful! Spotlessly clean..The furnishings and decor were classy all the way. very unique. We look forward to next time. We really liked the Jamaica Beach area. Not as congested as Galveston. We had everything we needed within a short walk. That little grocery next door was awesome. I'm a picky shopper and we were both impressed.
We enjoyed site seeing, the beach and the fresh air. We have to have longer to stay next time to be able to do and see more.

It was absolutely amazing! Highly Recommended.

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at this home, it was in a great location being 2 minutes from the beach and 10 from the sea wall. I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a place to get away to for a few days. I will definitely be using it again :)

Great time on the beach!

  • 5 of 5
It’s a great place on the beach. Far enough from the main beaches on Seawall and close to all attractions in Galveston.
The house is very cozy and well-arranged inside. Everything was ready for our arrival exactly as it was described and discussed.
Both floors has 2 spacious balconies – great places for morning and after dawn hours. Kitchen is well equipped, all appliances working and all rooms and bathrooms have beautiful sea-themed decorations.
We had a wonderful time and will recommend this place to all our friends.
Thank you, Yolanda for staying in touch during our stay and your quick replies by e-mails!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the 5 stars, we are very pleased that you and your family had a fantastic time at the beach!! We try very hard to provide a relaxing get-a-way from the everyday stress filled living. It is very relaxing to just sit at the balcony with a great drink in the evening listening to the ocean waves and feeling the ocean breeze on your face!
