About Yolanda

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.

Yolanda purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Yolanda chose Texas Gulf Coast

We found the location great being that it is just a few steps from the beach!! The area is quiet and has a small town atmosphere. The grocery story next door is great for just purchasing ice cream or picking up steaks!

What makes this townhome unique

Very private and close to the beach! A great, clean beach!

We are so happy we found Docs Quarters @ The Beach for our weekend getaway! Everything is as described. Plenty of room and great location. Beach is close & within walking distance. Small grocery story very close. Kitchen well stocked! Three bathrooms were great! The separation of living & kitchen from bedrooms is nice when some want to sleep late. Love the balconies and the views. Yolanda was quick to respond to our initial inquiry and all questions after. Definitely enjoyed our stay and hope to come again for a longer stay!

Thanks for sharing your home.

We have a family reunion here in Galveston every year. We always book our condo with Yolanda and her husband. This condo is gorgeous, it has everything you need for a vacation, walking distance to the beach stores. We had a good time.

Great trip

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this townhome for a 3 night Thanksgiving trip. It was plenty of room for two families. What I liked best is the cleanliness and overall room of the townhouse. It was an easy walk to the beach. I was concerned about view being 3 row but it was very nice. I loved having my morning coffee on the balcony. I would stay again and recommend highly. Yolanda was wonderful to work with as well.

Quiet location close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here at Doc's Quarters! The home felt very inviting and everything we needed was there and ready to go. The property was very clean and the beds were comfortable. We had plenty of room for all 7 of us. The beach is just a few minutes walk away and it is amazing! We enjoyed being able to just get up and go without having to get in the car to drive to the beach. It was kind of hard to hear the waves while sitting on the porch due to the air conditioners around you running but when they stopped long enough for you to hear it, it was beautiful! The kitchen was nicely stocked, clean towels were provided and we were very grateful to have the washer and dryer available. The outdoor areas were wonderful, as well, and we liked having the swing to sit and watch the waves. Thank you, Yolanda, for opening your home to us! We loved it and really enjoyed our time there! We would not hesitate to stay again if we should return to Galveston!
