GALVESTON VACATION RENTAL WITH 5 STAR GUEST REVIEWS since 2009 - CLOSE TO ALL GALVESTON ATTRACTIONS! Easy access to the Beach; one mile from Moody Gardens and the Galveston Convention Center

Excited to be in Galveston? Surround yourself with lavish decor and start your island experience at our condo!

Sitting on the balcony drinking your morning coffee and watching the seagulls overhead and listening to the ocean waves and feeling the great gulf breeze is PARADISE when you're stressed and overworked!

Plan to start your day sitting on the balcony watching the luminous sun come up! Easy access to the beach across the street!

The magic of a fun VACATION or GET-A-WAY will start here!

The water trickling in the fountain from the swimming pool below while relaxing on the balcony watching the ocean waves and beach will enhance your sense of relaxation and provide for an awesome island experience!

Our condo is in a gated community surrounded by lush tropical landscaping, 2 resort style pools, 1 spa tub, and a full gym with elliptical equipment and free weights. Our swimming pools are open year round.

This condo is super spacious with its 1,116 sq. feet of living space, definitely NOT tiny like other condos found on the island

If you and your family want plenty of personal space during your island stay, then this condo is the one for you! Our condo is set up to provide a fantastic vacation or get-away in a relaxed, luxurious environment far different from the sterile, cramped space of an efficiency hotel or motel!

You can workout at the fitness center then dive into the swimming pool to finish out your workout! OR (my favorites) take your margarita or cooler to the swimming pool and relax with a great book and begin your gorgeous suntan. Older adults can sit at the balcony above and watch the children (young and younger) splashing and laughing while waving to you at the balcony above!

The large 50 inch flat screen TV will be a welcome in the evening as you and your family watch your favorite movies, munch on popcorn and catch up on family happenings!

You will feel like you are in a tropical resort and close to paradise! This beach condo is luxurious inside and the landscaping outside is fabulous!

The condo kitchen is modern with its stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops and you will find high quality furnishings and great amenities!

You will NOT easily forget this vacation or this beach condo!

We have guests who return every year and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else! Read our reviews!

Our condo has a king size bed with an attached bathroom in the master bedroom. The second bedroom has bunk beds with a double on the bottom and a twin on top. We try and furnish this condo to be perfect for families with small children!

We have a toddler bed in the spacious closet, a Pack N Play and highchair. We also keep children classic videos in the second bedroom with a TV just for the kiddos to keep them entertained while you cook their favorite meal (mac and cheese).

If all that is not enough, we also have for your convenience a full size dryer and washer inside the condo!

Enjoy your vacation or just a get-away in a relaxing, spacious and luxurious environment!


The 2 spacious bedrooms with 2 full bathrooms are perfect for a family of seven!

When you come to Galveston, stay at Docs Quarters at the Seawall; experience a great ocean view, clean pools and luscious landscaping. You will surely enjoy your Galveston stay and make wonderful family memories!!

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 home town culture! We enjoy walking along the seawall and beach especially early mornings and late evenings - watching the sun rise and the moon's radiant glow on the waves. The Strand is also a favorite hangout; touring the shops and enjoying a refreshing drink while watching the children laughing and having a fabulous time!

We also enjoy sitting on the balcony, drinking coffee, eating breakfast and watching the ocean waves and hearing the water from the fountain at the swimming pool. These experiences can be very romantic!

Sitting at the balcony in the shade feeling the gulf breeze and looking down at the swimming pool and watching the children having a great time at the pool is a great feeling!

Clean, well decorated condo in great location!

  • 5 of 5

We booked Yolanda's condo for a girls' getaway and had a wonderful time. She has the condo kitchen well stocked and it's beautiful and well decorated. It's right across the street from the beach and half a block walk to McCallisters and a Walmart. Beds were very comfortable. Large walk in closets. My only complaints about the condo is that there were no kitchen towels in the kitchen and the fridge doesn't get very cold. We were worried about the food we bought going bad bc of it. Yolanda's communication is great and she answered all my questions very promptly.

Felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo! The condo was very clean and up to date, and the location was perfect. We had a problem with the door lock on arrival and they had it taken care of right away, great customer service. It was also nice the security of gated property. If we head back to Galveston we will hope to stay here again!

Beautiful Home, Great Views

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with 4 adults and 2 small children. The place is great and the sleeping arrangements worked out perfectly. As anyone with kids knows, they come with a full car of accessories. Yolanda had a high chair and beach toys at the place so those were a few less items we had to pack. Location was great, right on the beach, we did have to walk a distance or drive to get to some of the restaurants but overall great location, pretty much dead center of the Pier and Moody Gardens.

From the Owner

Our condo makes for a great Galveston getaway! The complex has beautiful landscaping and the condominiums are splashed with tropical Caribbean colors. I especially enjoy the location and proximity to Schlitterbahn Water Park (1 mile), the mini golf course located at the Seawall, the Galveston Convention Center and Moody Gardens (1 mile). This makes the condominium ideal for year round fun! By the way we also have a heated spa and fitness center to keep you in shape while eating the fantastic food while in Galveston!

From the Owner

Our balcony is a wonderful place to relax and plan out your daily itinerary! You can listen to the sounds of the seagulls, the ocean waves or hear the water fountain at the swimming pool. Sitting at the balcony and watching the beach and water at the seawall is absolutely superb! Sunbathe at the condominium’s one of two swimming pools or go to the public beach across the street and feel the sand between your toes! Some guests take their early walk or jog along the seawall while enjoying the sea air and listening to the ocean waves. Exercising can't get any better than that! The condo's proximity and the convenience to Galveston's main attractions is ideal! Check it out!. . .you and your children and family will not be disappointed with this beach condo!
