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.

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!

Perfect Balance of Proximity, Location, Amenities

  • 5 of 5

First off, the booking process was made very easy by Yolanda. She was very easy to contact, answered her phone every time and was more than willing to help answer any questions while providing informative answers for each.

Location in my opinion is great! Far enough south of the seawall to where you are away from all the heavier traffic while still only a mere 10-15 min drive at most to get back to everything. Being south of the seawall also gave great access to some very nice beach as opposed to up by the seawall where the beach was much smaller and more crowded. The walk to the beach was a minute or two at most (can see beach from townhouse windows, balconies, etc). The walk to the Seven Seas Market was even closer (about 50 yards north). This comes in handy say if you happen to drop a bag of groceries while unloading your car and break a jar or your favorite pasta sauce for dinner that night...strictly hypothetical.

We found the townhouse well furnished, well kept and perfect for what we were needing. With three bedrooms and three full bathrooms, there was plenty of space for us (2 couples, each with a toddler in tow).

All the details of this place are what took it to a 5 for me: baby gate for stairs already there...big +, close proximity to everything (beach, food, entertainment, etc), Yolanda (owner), outside shower, space, and much more. To prove how service-oriented Yolanda is, the coffee pot stopped working the first morning we were there and she brought a new one out that same afternoon! Lots of little touches that made this a very special and memorable vacation for our families. I would highly recommend this home and hope to come back to visit ourselves in the near future.

Thank you, Yolanda!

Thank you for taking the time to put a wonderful review and taking the time to compliment me on my promptness in getting a new coffee pot to you. I know how important that early morning coffee is! We hope to have you back soon!

Awesome vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

As a Grammie, I was looking for a comfortable, relaxing place to spend time with my granddaughters, ages 4yrs and 20mo. This was an excellent choice! The townhome was clean, nicely decorated, safe, and close to the beach! We enjoyed being able to eat some meals in a clean well-stocked kitchen. We were excited to collect shells, walk on the beach, build sand castles, experience waves, and play in the water. We also went on a ferry ride, caught & released crabs, and they enjoyed the family outdoor shower!! After they were tucked into bed, it was nice to sit out on the upper patio listening to the waves and gazing at all the stars. Highly recommend this property!
