My family and I, we had a spectacular time. The accodomations are perfect. We all enjoyed the comfortable beds, balcony, swimming pools, well.... we enjoyed 100% of our stay!! Owner is a wonderful person. I give the highest recommendations of this beautiful place!!!
Owner Response: Hi Carlos, Thank you for your most wonderful recommendation! Doc and I are so pleased you loved our condo with its great amenities! God bless and we hope to have you stay with us again when you visit Galveston! Docs and Yolanda
The place met so many of our expectations, we had a wonderful family vacation. There was more than enough room for our family of five, everything was updated and so clean and efficient. The one minimal downside was we had a hard time connecting to the Wi-Fi, but that gave us more excuses to get off the technology.
This place couldn't have been any more perfect for our family!! Great with kids! Fully stocked, beautiful views, and the property pools were beautiful and the quick access to the beach was great! We will definitely be back!!
Owner Response: Hi Maren, Thank you for the lovely 5 star review!! We greatly appreciate you wanting to stay with us again!
Doc and Yolanda took good care of us. We had only some minor questions and they were able to respond quickly and accommodate all of our needs. This is a great condo to rent, from good people. It is located right across from the beach and has pool and hot tub. It is also located near the Shoales International Airport. A short drive from the Airport gets you an ocean view, while overlooking the pool as well. I plan on flying my plane back to visit soon. Walmart is also located within walking distance so it was easy to prepare breakfast, and lunch at the condo, in between beach time and pool time with the kids. Most restaurants were a short drive down the beach, as well as the Pleasure Pier. This was our first time using HomeAway. We found it easy and had a great overall experience.
Owner Response: Thank you so much! We enjoyed having your family stay at our condo for your first HomeAway experience. Please keep us in your list of favorites.
The condo was very comfortable with nice furnishings and a great location. I didn't realize there was no elevator which was burdensome.
Owner Response: Hi Regina, I'm sorry our condos don't have elevators. It definitely can be burdensome to have to roll up the luggage up 2 flights of stairs. Thank you for choosing our condo and we are pleased that you found the location with the beach across the street and furnishings and amenities very nice. We hope you do keep us in mind for another stay in Galveston.
We had a great time. The condo was very nice, clean and well stocked. We loved morning coffee on the balcony with a great view of the beach. Close to everything but still surprisingly quiet at night. Yolanda was great to work with. Very quick responses to questions. We will definitely be back!
beautiful location with amazing view! Property has all aminities and condo was clean and well stocked! Location is convenient to all area attractions! Love this place and will definitely be booking here again!
Owner Response: Hi Cheryl, Thank you for the lovely 5 star review! You were a great guest and we would be pleased to have you stay at our condo again! Docs and Yolanda
This was our second time to stay at Doc's Quarters and we will definitely be back. It is a beautifully furnished two bedroom condo with a full kitchen, laundry room, and comfortable beds. There are also two pools in the complex and plenty of parking. The owners are very accommodating and take good care of the property. The check-in and check-out procedures are simple. We have so enjoyed our stays here that I don't have single complaint.
Owner Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review and most importantly for taking the time to let others know about our lovely condo! We enjoy making sure our condo is a "WOW" factor for all our guests and I'm pleased you again enjoyed your stay! THANK YOU!
Our family of 4 had a wonderful experience. This was our second time to stay at this condo at it was just as great as the first time. Very clean and absolutely perfect for little ones. Yolanda was great to work with, as well!
Owner Response: Hi Barbie, Thank you very much for your lovely review on our condo and the 5 star review! We hope you visit us again!
We enjoyed at our stay at the condo. Beds were comfortable and it was well equipped. The kids liked the pool and you can walk to the beach. There is a large highway by the beach which caused highway noise and required going up to the crosswalk with kids, but that is just how Galveston is setup. The owner was very helpful!
Condo is clean and well appointed, had everything we needed. Accommodations for the kids were great, Highchair, Baby and Toddler beds plus toys. Beach chairs and towels were are nice also. No need to haul any of the above. Would recommend to anyone making a trip to Galveston. Owners are very responsive and easy to deal with. Had a great trip.
Owner Response: Thank you Randy for the lovely review! We are very pleased that your family had a great stay with the amenities provided. We hope to have you stay at our condo for your next visit.
Our family of four had a wonderful weekend getaway! The condo was perfect for us the kids loved the bunk beds and all of the beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed being able to cook our own meals and go to the pool in the evening with the kids. We will definitely be back!
Owner Response: Thank you so much for providing us with a 5 star review on our beautiful condo with its great ocean view! We enjoyed having you stay at our condo and glad the family had a fantastic stay! P.S. We just put in laminate floors in the 2 bedrooms. You will love the beautiful look!
The place was very nice with a great view of the ocean and pool. Far enough off the Strand that there wasn't road noise, but close enough to walk to the beach or dinner. Owner was easy to work with and very accommodating. The price was reasonable. Look forward to coming back next year!
Owner Response: Thank you for your time to write us a lovely review! And for the 5 star rating! We are putting in laminate floors in our bedrooms and you will love the look on your return visit!
This was great place. The location, the ocean view, the pools and the very nice guy at the front office who help me find the place after I failed to the read the great instructions you sent me. Very clean and if you are hungry you are on the main road to everywhere. Thanks
Our stay was great! We really enjoyed the condo. It had everything we needed, clean, and plenty of room. Our group consisted of four adults and two kids and we never felt crowded. We also really enjoyed the pools and found crossing the street to go to the beach extremely convenient. During our stay, the temperatures outside were extremely high during the day and we found the condo, especially the second bedroom, would get extremely warm but overall, we had a great time and appreciated the amenties, especially the kids toys and videos. Yolanda was great and provided us with useful information about our stay and Galveston. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
Owner Response: Hi Amanda, Thank you for the lovely 4 star review! The second bedroom during the day does get warmer because the Windows face the sun during the hottest part of the day. Opening the curtains during the day is not recommended for that reason. Most people don't even notice because they are outside enjoying the pool or beach. I will look into what else I can do to minimize the sun's rays. Thx again!
The property was beautiful.
Owner Response: Thank you again for choosing our condo and taking time to post your guest review. We especially enjoyed the 5 star review! I'm also glad your sister enjoyed her stay at our one bedroom condo. Sounds like everyone had an amazing Galveston family time! We hope you consider a stay with us during your next Galveston trip.
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.
Owner Response: Hi De, Thank you for taking the time to give us a 5 star review and for the "heads up" on the refrigerator. It has been fixed!
We were in and out, so we didn't ever really get settled, but nice place!
Owner Response: Thank you for taking time to post a gueat review! Im sorry you didn't have time to visit the beach across the street. We hope you visit us again and stay more than 2 nights.
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!
Owner Response: Thank you Megan for your guest review. Doc and I are pleased you and your family had a great stay and it felt like home! We also hope the little ones enjoyed the beach across the street. Please visit us again on your next trip to Galveston.
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.
Owner Response: Hi Christopher, Thank you for taking the time to post a great guest review! We hope you visit us again, the beach across the street is very handy and saves the cost of beach parking!
This condo was the cutes homeaway from home!
Owner Response: Thank you for the 5 star review!! We make every effort to provide the best stay ever while visiting Galveston!
The condo was excellent with everything you could ask for!
Owner Response: Hi Lynette, Thank you for letting me know you and your family enjoyed your stay at our condo and Docs Quarters @ the Seawall had everything available for a fantastic stay! We welcome the 5 star review and are appreciative of your time to post a guest review! See you next year!
We really enjoyed this condo and the close proximity to the beach even though it was freezing the entire time there. Only problem is that with the tile flooring and being on the 3rd floor, we constantly had to tell our kids not to jump (which was really hard to do) as the people below us were getting mad. Next time we would probably choose a main floor unit to avoid this. There is also no elevator which made for going up and down hard on my knees. The condo itself is beautiful and great communication from the owner. I would recommend this condo to everyone.
Owner Response: Thank you for the 5 star guest review! The housekeepers and I work hard to provide the perfect vacation or get-a-way setting. I know it's hard to keep kids excitement at our condo at a minimum! I'm guessing it was still better you being on the top floor than having to hear noises and jumping from the ceiling above you. We decided to take your comment to heart and bought a first floor condo in the same complex! You will love it! The condo number is VRBO 489694 (www.vrbo.com/489694#). Thanks again and we hope you will consider staying at our other condo.
We enjoyed our 2 night stay at this beautiful & comfortable beach condo! The unit itself was clean, nicely decorated, comfortable & was in a great location. The kitchen was nice, the view from the balcony was wonderful & the beds were comfortable. The pools were not heated during our Jan stay & the kitchen table is a bit tight for more than 4-5people (we were a family of 7) but otherwise it was perfect. We would be happy to stay here again as well as recommend it to our friends & family.
Owner Response: Hi Michelle, thank you for the lovely 5 star review! Docs Quarters tries to go above and beyond to provide the perfect Galveston stay! We do hope you visit us again when coming to Galveston!
Great property! Absolutely geared towards a family (with kiddos). We have a 3yr old and a 1 yr old and they LOVED it! Awesome communication before & after our stay. Thank you!
Owner Response: Thank you! We are so pleased our condo was perfect for the little ones. And you enjoyed your stay!
My daughter and I stayed here for a girls get-away, the condo was centrally located to everything. The condo is very cozy and spacious. We would recommend this condo and would stay here again!
Owner Response: Thank you for submitting a review, it is greatly appreciated and I'm glad to know you found our condo cozy and close to all the major attractions. And most of all, you would not hesitate to stay at our condo for your next Galveston girls get-a-way! Thanks again for choosing our condo!
Très chouette appartement . Un bon séjour pour nous hormis l'ouragan "Patricia" dont yolanda n'est pas responsable !!
Owner Response: Thank you for choosing our condo for your weekend get-a-way! We are very pleased that you found our condo to be a 5 star stay!
We greatly enjoyed our stay! The condo was perfect for our family, very clean, and had a wonderful view of the pool and gulf. The complex was very peaceful and we loved the pools and hot tubs. The area is secure and perfect location that's close to the local attractions. We happily recommend this condo and would love to stay again!
Owner Response: Thank you for the 5 star review! And for your time to write one, we greatly appreciate it! You made our time and work at our condo worth while!
We had the best time! This condo had plenty of room For us four adults and two children. My toddler loved the toddler bed and the children loved the extra toys and movies in the second bedroom. Nice touch! The kitchen was a full kitchen so we were able to cook breakfast and lunch and dinner. There is two flights of stairs to climb to get to the condo which was no problem for us however some might not be able to go up All those stairs. Also a small table on the balcony was awesome in the morning looking over the pool and beach. This was a much better choice for us than a hotel and cheaper for us too. We enjoyed it and ready to go Back. My kiddos are asking me when we are going back.
Owner Response: Thank you again for choosing our condo! And thanks for leaving a fabulous 5 star review!! We really work hard for it and we are so pleased our hard work pays off! We're super pleased the little ones had a great time and made beautiful memories!
A+++ My husband and I have traveled to Galveston for 9 years for vacation and this is by far the best place we have ever stayed!!!! The condo is beautiful; the view from the balcony is amazing and it is within walking distance of attractions, mainly the beach. Ms. Yolanda is absolutely wonderful to make arrangements with as she is very accommodating. We are looking forward to booking our vacation next year with her!!!!
Owner Response: Thank you! for the 5 star review! It was my pleasure having you and your family stay at our condo. See you next year!
Just as pictured, no surprises. Great location with ample parking. Beautiful decor and wonderful for longer stays. Well furnished kitchen. Our kids loved the bunk beds and pools. We would absolutely rent this condo again. Wonderful communications with the owner. Would recommend this condo whole heartedly.
Owner Response: Thank you for the GREAT review and the 5 stars! We hope to have you and your family visit us again soon.
I don't even know where to begin on how much we LOVED staying at this condo! My family of five were able to fit perfectly into this condo without any issues. We loved staying across the street from the beach; the location of the condo was great, right next door to a gas station, grocery store and restaurants. When we decided to return to Galveston we will definitely be staying here again.
Owner Response: Thank you for taking time to write a fantastic review! We couldn't have said how wonderful the location is any better! This home is a favorite of many returning guests. And as you mentioned, it is super spacious with its 3 full bathrooms!
Our 2nd yr and still as awesome as ever! Furnished with pretty.much everything for your stay! Cook in or eat out as location is awesome! Great pool for lots.of sun time!
Owner Response: Thank you for the lovely review! We enjoy having you and your family stay at our condo every year! We are so pleased we are continuing to obtain 5 star reviews, it is our goal! Have a great year and I hope we'll have you back next year!
My family and I travelled from Tucson, AZ to Galveston,TX. and I really wanted my kids to have the full experience of the ocean so I decided to look into places along the seawall. This was PERFECT! We could walk down to the seawall and to the beach areas and we could sit on the balcony in the mornings and enjoy our coffee while watching the ocean - and we even saw dolphins! I think my husband enjoyed the ocean view even more than the kids! The condo is overall just amazing and perfect for families or couples looking for a couples "retreat".
Owner Response: Thank you for letting our guests know how lovely the ocean view is from the balcony! And ow close we are to the beach! Our guest's island experience is very important to Doc and I!
My wife and our two sons (17 and 19) stayed here for 3 nights while visiting Galveston. The location was superb. Parking is behind locked gates. The condo is nicely decorated and the furniture very comfortable. The master bedroom's mattress was extremely comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked. There were books, DVD movies, games and lots of Galveston Island information in the condo. There is a big screen TV in the den and we relaxed each evening in front of it. The balcony is large and overlooks the pool and the beach. The pool has a fountain in it and the sound was so relaxing. Door is key coded and we were able to create our own entrance code rather than having to remember the original. This is a great feature!!! We did notice that the condo owners have other condos in Galveston (look up "Doc's ...") and we can't wait to go back and try another location. From a family who usually goes to the Alabama/Florida beach each year and rents condos for those trips, this one was one of the best we've stayed in. Oh, and the price was really nice too!
Owner Response: Thank you for the 5 star review and for letting our guests know we provide a perfect island get-away! I can't thank you enough for taking the time to tell others about our beach condo! We hope to have you visit us again!
We stayed in this Condo for a Sisters Weekend. Great location right off of the Sea Wall. Close to everything. Clean and comfortable. This is a great place to stay while away on a vacation.
Owner Response: Hi Kelly, Thank you for taking the time to post a guest review to let our potential guests know we try very hard to provide the perfect get-a-way! It helps when our condo is located in a beautiful environment with fantastic views of the ocean! Thanks again!
We loved staying at this Condo. It was right off of Seawall road that quickly gets you anywhere you want to go in Galveston. It was family friendly with a pack n play, and a toddler bed located in 2 separate spacious walk in closets. My 1 and a half your old needs his own room that is really dark so he slept perfect here. There were also movies for the kids, which was helpful. The best thing about the condo though is that it was nice, well taken care of, and clean. We felt right at home, and appreciated how nice it was for a vacation home. You'll love this place if you stay here.
Owner Response: Thank you for the 5 star review. We love that you had a fabulous vacation at our condo! We try very hard to provide a resort like experience! I hope you also enjoyed the ocean view from the balcony!
My family stayed at the condo as a Christmas surprise from me. They absolutely loved it. We have stayed in various places in Galveston for several years, and this by far was the best. We will absolutely be back!
Owner Response: Thank you so much for the lovely guest review! We hope to have you and your family return!
We stayed for the weekend, altho the weather was cold & rainy in Galveston, we enjoyed our stay very much!!! This room is lovely...All as described....We will return again...Owners are very helpful and friendly...
Owner Response: Hi Debra, Thank you for the lovely comments and the 5 star review! I am so sorry for the terrible weather we had during your stay. Our winter weather is unpredictable. The weather is now perfect with a beautiful shining sun! Thank you again for choosing our lovely condo and we hope to have you and your family back soon!
Thank you Doc's Quarters for the wonderful stay. The condo feels likes a home away from home. The kids had a great time. They loved the bunk beds and the Disney classic movies. We had a great day at Moody Gardens then a relaxed dinner. We loved having WalMart so close and being close to Moody Gardens was great too! The sound of the ocean and the ocean view topped it all off. What a great way to get away for a few days. Thanks for such an enjoyable stay!
Owner Response: Thank you for your lovely 5 star review! I am so happy that you and your family had a fabulous stay and the ocean view was delightful! We hope to have you back soon!
Very clean, nice condo located in a beautiful and well kept complex. This was our second stay in a Dawn condo owned by these owners. The owners are very helpful, and we were very happy both times. The listing's description and photos accurately depicted the condo. The balcony looked out over the ocean as well as the beautiful pool, and it was an easy step across Seawall Blvd for a very pleasant stroll along the Seawall. We would recommend this property and these owners to a friend.
Owner Response: Thanks again Tim for choosing one of our beach condos for your Galveston stay! I hope the birthday party was a great celebration with your family. We are so pleased that you enjoyed this condo as much as you did last year's stay at our other condo! We hope to have you back next year for next year's birthday celebration!
My family and I enjoyed our stay at the docs. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't cooperating, however, the condo made up for it. It definitely was home away from home. We would recommend anyone to stay at the docs when visiting Galveston. Great location!
Owner Response: Thank you Michelle for the lovely review! Doc and I are very pleased you and your family felt at home staying at our condo. We are very sorry about the weather, believe me, if I could have changed it I would definitely have done so! We hope to have you and your family back next summer!
My family and I stayed in this condo, at the beginning of August 2014, and let me tell you; we were impressed about how beautiful the decoration was and how clean the condo was. Let me just tell you that usually I need to clean before sleeping anywhere else than my home, however, I did not feel the need to do so in this condo :) pretty impressive. I was pleasantly surprised that we could find things such as spices, dish soap, coffee and extra beach towels and pool toys for the kids. We had a great time in Galveston as the beach condo is near pretty much everything (Walmart, Walgreens, restaurants, moody gardens, etc..) I would recommend this condo for any family with or without children. We will definitely come back and explore another condo somewhere else if the owner owns more condo in different locations. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your condo, Yolanda.
Owner Response: Thank you, Thank you for the lovely guest review! It was also a pleasure for Doc and I to have met your family during your stay! We are pleased and excited to know you and and the children had a fantastic stay!! Thank you again and we hope to have you visit us again soon.
You will get everything you see in the pictures plus more!!!! Beautifully decorated as if you were in the summer edition of a Pottery Barn Magazine!!! They had so many extras not usually found in a vacation rental and everything was of high quality!!! Both pools are close to all buildings so it was really easy to go to either one! Grills were great! mattresses comfortable!! They had lots of sand and water toys in a closet that really saved us an expense!! Just loved this place and cant wait to return next summer!
Owner Response: Hi Nathan and Brenda, Thank you for the lovely 5 star review! We try very hard to provide a fantastic island stay! Doc and I are thrilled that we met your expectations and more! We hope to have you and your family back very soon!
The condo was a great space for our family of five, with room to house even more if needed. All the details and amenities needed for a family from far away were accounted for and provided, from spices for food, to sand toys for kids! Only drawback was that we paid for wifi Internet that as not fast enough to stream. I would recommend bringing your own hot spot if you need internet.The space was clean and well kept with a great location. We had a blast.
Owner Response: Thank you Ben for your great review of our condo!! I am very sorry about the internet being slow. That company is suppose to be putting in faster cables but I don't know when that will happen. If you are used to fast streaming internet to move backwards in time can be a challenge.
We arrived to a clean and roomy place. The view was fantastic and both pools in the condo were well utilized by us. The beach was inundated by seaweed and could not be enjoyed, but the kids forgot soon with all the things to do. We went swimming the first night after we ate at Rainforest Café which is just a few blocks away and has its own irrupting volcano. We spent all day at the Schlitterbahn Waterpark the next day, again just a few blocks away. The next day we went to the strand and the kids enjoyed the train museum and we met some friends who joined us back at the condo to swim and I used the grill right by the pool to BBQ. Great experience and relaxing. Wish we could have stayed longer. The condo had everything we needed. The master bed was really comfortable, wish we could have brought it home. A few things to know. The second bedroom gets hot so leave the curtains shut and they have a fan in the room, the cable box for the main tv would lose signal, but I did figure out that if u pull the cord out of the back of the box just a hair it worked fine. Not that you are going to watch much TV for all the things to do, but I would recommend a new Comcast digital converter box and reprogramming the remote. the condo was very quiet and the convenience of the pushbutton entry was awesome. (definitely take the time to program your own code, makes it so much easier.) Our family would like to thank Yolanda for letting us enjoy the condo and your attention to detail made it feel close to home as you can get. PS the girls said they would move in if we could :).
Owner Response: Hi Russ, Thank you for the lovely review! It was our pleasure to host your family at our Galveston condo, "Docs Quarters @ the Seawall" and we are so pleased that the amenities and ocean view were fantastic! Thanks for the suggestion on the converter box, I have changed it out twice and finally spoke with other owners and it seems to be a problem with the Infinity cable provider for our little community. We do hope to have you and the family back for your next vacation or just to "get away"!
We really enjoyed our stay in you beautifully decorated condo. The location was great, and our boys really enjoyed the bunk beds. We really appreciated the decor and how well-equipped the condo was. You had everything we needed to make it our home away from home!
Owner Response: Hi Kim, Thank you again for choosing our beach condo! The bunk beds are definitely a delight for the young at heart! I'm glad we exceeded your expectations. We try very hard to provide the best condo ever for a Galveston stay!
The condo owner Yolanda is very pleasant to work with. The condo is very nicely appointed. It's furnishings are nicer than my own home! It was lovely sitting on the balcony and viewing the ocean and one of the two large pools. This was a perfect spot for our GALveSton Getaway. I heartily recommend!
Owner Response: Hi Gail, Thank you for your guest review and for choosing our beach condo again for your stay with your girl friends! I can't thank you enough for your gracious review! We hope to have you back again next year!!
Our stay could not have been more perfect! The condo is absolutely beautiful and the grounds of the complex are impeccable, the best I've ever seen in Galveston. The balcony provides a stunning view of the ocean and we were thrilled by that aspect and spent a lot of time on the large balcony. The condo was perfect for our girl's weekend (we had 5 in our party) and we enjoyed it immensely. The kitchen items and extra bedding items far exceeded any other vrbo I've every stayed in and the washer and dryer was an added bonus that we didn't realize we would have. We will definitely be booking with Yolonda again, hopefully in the very near future. PS The only downside is that the condo is on the 3rd floor, so if you have health issues or are elderly, that could pose a problem. We just looked at it as our workouts so we could drink more cocktails. :~)
Owner Response: Hi Kimberly, Thank you so much for the fantastic 5 star review!! We always feel so good when we get a raving review on our condo and its amenities. We to have you and your friends visit us again soon!
VRBO has not disappointed yet. Lovely, inviting condo with all the comforts of home. The owners thought of everything, for the very young and young at heart. Great view from the balcony and you can even hear the ocean waves from the Master bedroom at night. Close to everything that Galveston has to offer. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you for helping make our stay that much more wonderful.
Owner Response: We are so happy that your Grandson's first beach experience was truly enjoyable with their grandparents! Galveston is such a fantastic place to visit with family and friends with so many events, places to see and restaurants to visit. Thank you so much for the 5 star review!
The condo is truly amazing! Everything about this place is home away from home. My son really enjoyed all of the childrens books and we were tickled to see the same exact high chair we have at home. The fact that you walk in and everything is fully stocked and ready to go is a fantastic feeling! Say goodbye to hotels in Galveston! We have been spoiled! It was just so nice and tropical and I would't stay anywhere else from here on out. Thanks so much!
Owner Response: Hi Alyssa, Thank you again for choosing our beach condo! Doc and I are so pleased that you found everything to your satisfaction and we earned a 5 star review! :)
This place has everything you need and more! Plenty of room, well-decorated and a clean and quiet condo complex. We love it and I wish we could stay longer. We will definitely be back again soon. Thank you so much!
Owner Response: Thank you Khesanh for a 5 star review and for letting your friends know about our fabulous condo! We continually strive for great reviews and I am glad we met our goal!
Very spacious condominium. 2 BD 2 BTH with couch/bed in living room. Comfortably handled 2 adults and 4 kids. Immaculately maintained as was the entire condo complex. 2 very nice pools. Across the street from the beach and short drive to Moody Gardens, Schitterbahn and the Strand. Balcony overlooks pool and to the right you see the ocean. Close to Wal Mart and Krogers and gas station. The only reason I would not say it was perfect is that with 6 people we had to space out the showers or we would run out of hot water at night. Overall great place to stay.
Owner Response: Hi Jeff, Thanks for taking time to write a guest online review! I'm sorry I didn't get the 5 star review on our fantastic condo due to the hot water issue and your family having to space the showers apart. The hot water tank is not as big as one found in a house so I imagine running the hot water for the dishwasher, washing machine and showers could be a problem. Thank you again, we hope to have you back soon!
This was an awesome condo for a great price! We stayed for Mardi Gras and loved the location. It was the perfect distance from the main events! The condo itself was beautifully decorated with a great kitchen. The two bedrooms were very spacious and very comfortable! The coach turned into a bed which was also very comfortable. Everything was great with the condo! All in all we will definitely be staying here in the future! Book immediately!
Owner Response: Thank you very much Ashlee for taking the time to post a FANTASTIC 5 star review! We strive to provide the very best possible island experience and I am glad we exceeded your expectations! Galveston Mardi Gras was a great event this year as always! Spring and summer is always fun on the Island! See you soon!
Everything was as advertized and all the surprises were pleasant. We had a quiet getaway for the two of us and we were able to accommodate and entertain our guests in style. Photos were accurate if understated. Furniture, appliances new and well maintained. Very clean throughout. Owner most helpful and instructions were clear. I would recommend this place to anyone who does not mind two flights of stairs. After many years a resident and many visits, Galveston still has much old and new to see. Great historical buildings, great for walking and excellent birding. Many restaurants from fine dining to bar fare plus no better market for fresh fish, shrimp, crabs bought just off the boat and best prepared simply and enjoyed at home on the beach. We plan to return for a longer visit next year.
Owner Response: Thank you so much for the 5 star review!! We try very hard to provide a pleasurable experience and make you feel like you are at a resort! I am so glad we met your expectations. And I also can't say enough about the wonderful place of Galveston Island!
Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your beautiful home.My family and I really enjoyed our stay.. We really loved the location close to the beach and close to walmart for any last minute needs..Will definitely recomend to friends and family.
Owner Response: Thank you Martha for the lovely review! We enjoyed sharing our beach condo with you and your family. We hope to hear from you soon.
Very clean condo, beautifully decorated, loved the beach theme throughout. The condo is equipped with everything we needed. Truly a home away from home. I highly recommend!
Owner Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review!! We are glad the "girls get together" was a great success at our beach condo!
The condo was amazing! My kids, sister, mom and I had a great time! The patio was perfect with a view of the ocean and pool. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place and will definintely consider staying here in the future.
Owner Response: Hi Cinnamon, I am glad to hear the condo was spacious enough for your whole family. The patio does have a wonderful view of the ocean and the pool below. The ocean breeze is also enjoyable with a cool drink! We hope to have you, your family and mom back next summer! Thanks again for choosing our beach condo.
Great location, easy access to the beach, great pool, nice place! This was perfect for 4 adults and 3 kids (2 of which are babies). The pack n play was a life saver when we realized we forgot our own. Everything was easy and perfect. Thanks for a great stay!
Owner Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to post a great guest review! We are very pleased you and your family had a fantastic vacation at our beach condo! Hope to have you back again soon.
The week before our booking (July 29, 2013) I received an email with door code, gate code etc. and used this to enter the condo. Next day, got a call that we were in the wrong condo and we had to move. As we stayed in the right condo only 2 nights and had paid for three and there was a $200 difference in the totals (the first condo cheaper) I feel I am entitled to a refund. Neither manager would take the responsibility for the mistake. All I did was follow the directions on the email that I got on July 29. IF NOT FOR THIS STRESSFUL SITUATION I WOULD GIVE CONDO #244462 AN EXCELLENT RATING.
Owner Response: Thank you for the EXCELLENT RATING you would have given our condo if not for your double trouble. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND YOUR REQUEST FOR MONEY DUE TO PROBLEMS WITH BOB, THE OWNER OF THE CONDO YOU HAD ORIGINALLY RENTED. To explain further: I found out from Bob (other condo owner) that your family entered his condo by mistake and he had been working on the issue all day and his guests who had paid to be in his condo were trying to check in. I explained to Bob that I did not know how you and your family could have entered his condo when mine has its own code. He explained that he had sent you the information to enter his condo because originally you had booked with him and for reasons unknown to me, he cancelled your reservation and refunded your money. He mistakenly sent you the information to access his condo. When I send you my guest information, you first replied that you could not open the document and then 15 - 20 minutes later you emailed me back stating you were able to open the document. In hindsight, you opened his document and that is how you entered his condo by mistake. Bob was quite upset that you were in his condo and originally wanted to charge you for the night. After speaking with Bob, the other condo owner, we agreed that you entered the wrong condo mistakenly and with no malicious intent. He decided to allow your family to spend the night at his condo at no charge and I agreed to reimburse him for the expense of hiring a housekeeper to clean his condo. Again, there was no way for me to know that when you acknowledged having received my guest document that you had opened another home owner’s guest document that was sent to you unbeknown to me. I did forward for your review the email exchanges that you sent to my email address where you acknowledged having received and was able to open the guest document. The entire 2 days you stayed at my condo, you sent me email messages, stating you were very pleased with our condo and the last message was; “Hi Yolanda – We are out of the condo. We had a great time!” Bob had spoken with you and explained that he was NOT going to charge you for a stay at his condo and I further explained to you on the phone that I was sending Bob a check to reimburse him for the extra housecleaning. I have to admit it was quite upsetting to read your request for a refund from me when my condo was available for your family for the 3 nights. In fact it cost me an extra housecleaning fee.
Very very spacious, All the listing info. was accurate, The actual appearance of this condo exceeded the pictures. This condo was spotless and even had a closet with kids beach and pool toys. You don't need to bring a thing but food and toiletries. The owner Yolanda was very helpful in any questions that we had. I would definitely recommend this property to family and friends. This property also was in a less populated area which I loved and only 5 minutes away from attractions. Like I said, this property is a MUST!
Owner Response: Thank you Courtney! Docs Quarters is very pleased that our hard work to ensure a great vacation stay was a success with your family! We try to go the extra mile to make your stay wonderful!
We enjoyed our stay at The Dawn. Yolanda and Doc were very nice to speak with. There was an issue the first night of the AC not working properly. They drove out themselves at 11pm and fixed it. The condo is nice and fully equipped. I loved having the highchair, kids toys, kids books, and the pack n play! It was nice not having to travel with all of those items. The furniture is nice and updated and the master bed is COMFY! My only suggestion, is that a bottle of Windex should be left for guests! I know that seems silly but there was nothing to clean the counter tops or glass table with and there were sticky kid fingerprints all over! The location is decent. You do have a small view of the ocean from the balcony. It is not ocean front. Just for anyone that might be confused! The lagoon pool at The Dawn was our favorite! We liked the beaches to the west more as they were less crowded and you could drive all thew up on them. The only thing my hubby complained about was climbing 3 flights of stairs with a 1 and 2 year old, but that was our knowing and doing! Thank you for providing this lovely condo!
Owner Response: Hi Melissa, Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Most guests really enjoy sitting at the balcony, listening to the sounds of the waterfall from the pool, watching the ocean waves and feeling the ocean breeze!
My husband, daughter and 2 friends visited Galveston for the weekend and we were all wonderfully surprised to find such an amazingly CLEAN condo. It's the perfect size, easy to find and perfect access to the beach across the street. The girls loved the hot tub. I loved the high-end kitchen which was fully stocked. That made it easy to whip up delicious meals. The added bonus was the full-size washer and dryer! Yolanda, the property owner was EXCEPTIONAL! She was friendly and her exceptional customer-service skills made booking our stay almost effortless. Can't forget to mention the beautiful decor; not just in the living area but throughout the entire condo! My husband and I are already talking about visiting one of the other properties owned by Yolanda and her husband Doc. I'm sure we won't be disappointed! We definitely recommend this property.
Owner Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review! and most of all I am so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay! I am sure you and your family will also enjoy staying at one of our beach homes on the west end of the island. Hope to have you back soon!
The condo met our expectations. It was clean,spacious and convientently located. Will be coming back!
Owner Response: Thank you very much for your lovely review! It is a great joy to us that you would want to come again!
Again we had a wonderful winter at this condo, in fact this was our 4th year here! We loved the location so much we bought a unit for ourselves. Yolanda has been wonderful to deal with in all matters. The unit is great.
Owner Response: Hi Fred and Claudia, Docs Quarters is going to miss you both visiting us every winter! Thank you very much for considering our beach condo as your home away from home for the 4 winter seasons. I hope we can continue to see each other around the pool with a a margarita in our hands!
Excellent Condo. Everything was as stated in the information. Nice king sized bed. Great shower in master bedroom. Well appointed with everything you need for a great stay. One caution - the automatic gate on the way out swings in towards the car, not out like you think it would!!! Make sure you stop before the gate or the gate will hit your car.
Owner Response: Thank you for the great review!! I am very glad you were pleased with the condo and it met your expectations!
This unit is very nice and clean. The owners have it stocked with most everything you need. They even provide a toddler bed, high chair, childs rocking chair, and toys. The beds and couch were comfortable. We would definitely stay here again! The owners were very responsive and pleasant to deal with. We enjoyed sitting outside on the balcony to eat our meals and just hang out and talk. The patio furniture was nice - sturdy and comfortable, not the cheap stuff. When sitting on the balcony you have a nice view of the pool and partial view of the ocean. Only a few negatives about this unit, which are not the owners fault; 1) No elevator to get you, your toddler, and your luggage to the third floor; and 2) The beach area directly across the street from the condo complex is covered with large rocks. As for nearby activities, nothing is within walking distance. The Pleasure Pier is about 3 miles away. We were disappointed in the Pleasure Pier. It is way overpriced and there was nothing that our 3 year old could ride by herself and only 2 rides that she could ride with an adult. We ate dinner at Bubba Gump and do not recommend it. The service was poor and the food was no better than what you'd get at Long John Silver's for half the price. We had a great time playing on the clean beach and at Murdoch's. We do recommend indulging in the ice cream at Ben & Jerry's.
Owner Response: Hi Marcy, Thank you for your great review! I am sorry that Galveston's Pleasure Pier was not as expected. The block and 1/2 walk to the beach can be a challenge with a toddler. Moody Gardens, The Historic Strand and Museums are about 1 - 5 miles away and do require a vehicle. Thanks again for choosing Docs Quarters @ the Dawn!
Greatest Galveston vacation ever. We loved the place and our grandson was in heaven with his own room, complete with bunk beds and and his own TV! Two pools, beach across the street, Moody Gardens almost around the corner, Pleasure Pier just down the street, what more could you ask for? Will look forward to coming back soon!
Owner Response: Thank you so much for posting a great review! I am glad your grandson loved having his own room complete with a TV. We hope you visit us again soon!
We had a wonderful stay at this condo. The location was excellent and we were very pleased with the amenities within the unit. We loved the ability to cook our own meals whenever we chose to do so. All the items needed were provided. The accomodations exceeded our expectations. We have and will continue to recommend this location to our friends.
Owner Response: Thank you again for staying at Docs Quarters @ the Seawall! We will continue to exceed expectations!
We have stayed at this unit multiple times. We've stayed at various hotels and beach houses on the island. We find this unit in particular to be a real gem. It is very well maintained and is unique in that it has a set of bunk beds in the second bedroom. It is perfect for our young family of five. The unit is very well decorated with views overlooking the pool and ocean. The Condo complex is wonderful and the location is excellent. It is very close to major attractions like Schlitterbahn and Moody Gardens. The owner is very easy organized, responsive and very pleasant to work with. We'll be back same time next year.
Owner Response: Thank you for taking the time to post a review! and most of all for liking our condo so much. Doc and I enjoy maintaining a resort-like atmosphere in the condo and the management team maintains the resort-like atmosphere on the outside. We especially enjoy sharing the condo with our returning guests !
Condo was beautiful, well maintained and clean. Condo is literally across the beach and both pools were within steps from the condo as well. We will be back next year!!!
Owner Response: Thank you Sherry! I am so pleased that our condo met your expectations and you had a great time in Galveston! Thank you again for taking the time to share your view of our condo with potential guests.
The condo was excellent! Thank you so much for letting us stay here...we will be contacting you when we are ready to head back to Galveston.
Owner Response: Be sure and visit Galveston for Mardi Gras, it can be a lot of fun! Thanks for the great review!
Our stay at this wonderful condo was amazing – this condo is right on the beach --- BEAUTIFUL views from the balcony ---- just steps away from two beautiful resort like pools --- The photos don’t do it justice - ! The condo is one unlike one I’ve seen or stayed at before, completely and I do mean COMPLETELY upgraded – it has everything you need. The Full Size washer and dryer was a blessing and made unpacking great when we got home. This is amazing for a girls get-a-way – a family retreat whatever the occasion may be this is the place you want to spend it! My family comes to Galveston every summer ---- and have stayed in different condos every time- but we have found finally found our HOME AWAY FROM HOME--- We will be back! Thanks for making our vacation get-a-way easy, relaxing and amazing! Angelique Santos & Family
Owner Response: Hi Angelique, Thank you for the GREAT review! I am so glad that you found our beach condo and the facilities relaxing and beautiful and made you feel like you were staying at a resort! We try very hard to provide that type of atmosphere inside the condo and the complex works hard to provide the atmosphere outside the condo. :)
WE love the Galvestion area, special the Seawall area. Being able to house all seven family members in one location and enjoy the view of the ocean, enjoy the swimming quarters out of the ocean and just to relax was wonderful. This is your place. The Condo was updated, clean and all your expectation are met. The only thing was the 3rd story flight of stairs. Great exerise for those who are 60 or less, but a small hardship for the 75 to 80 yr olds, but they made it and enjoyed it as much as the young one did.
Owner Response: Thank you so much for the great review!! We enjoy hearing that we met all expectations especially the great Ocean View. Walking the 2 flights of stairs is a bummer but definitely worth the view!
The condo was everything promised and more! We really enjoyed our stay and found everything we needed in the Condo..very close to everything . Thanks for sharing your Beach Condo with us..it made our vacation so much easier than staying in hotels. Yolanda is very pleasant and made everything so easy.
Owner Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to write us a review! It is always a pleasure for me knowing that everyone is enjoying the great view as well as all the extra amenities.
The condo was beautiful, and the children were very excited to have their own room and loved the little chairs. They couldn't wait to jump in the pool, and swam around with their teeth chattering! Condo owners were wonderful to work with, and the condo was very clean and comfortable. We'd stay again if we returned to Galveston. Highly recommend! Andy Copping and family
Owner Response: Alaskans are always welcomed in Galveston! Doc and I were pleased that you chose our beach condo and you had such a great time! I hope you make back to Texas some day soon.
Again we thoroughly enjoyed our stay ay this condo in Galveston. This is our 3rd year in this unit and 4th year renting from Yolanda. She is wonderful to work with and has everything you need for your stay...not like some of the other units. Beach towels, beach toys, FULLY equipped kitchen, and great towels and sheets. What more can I say....she even "arranged"for a warm winter for us! We had 2 different sets of guests from out of state stay with us for a short time and they were impressed also. We have already booked it again for next year. Those stairs are great to keep us in shape! Our grandkids from League City love to come to "papa and grandma's beach house"!!!!! That was a real treat for them too. Thank you again Yolanda!
Owner Response: Hi Fred, Thanks for posting another great review! We'll see you next year!
This is our second visit to this lovely condo. Very clean, close to everything. Will be back.
Owner Response: Thank you Chris, We enjoy having you stay at our beach condo when you visit Galveston from Glasgow, Scotland! Thanks for the great review!
The condo was the perfect place to entertain our family visiting from Connecticut. The location was ideal and the views were spectacular. The condo exceeded our expectations. Although there were many attractions close by, we spent most of our time at the beach, enjoying the warm waters of the gulf. Afterwards, we relaxed in the hot tub at one of the 2 pools back at the complex. It was hard to leave. Thank you Yolanda and Doc for your hospitality and making the process so easy. We hope to be back someday.
Owner Response: Thank you for enjoying the condo with all its amenities and making our efforts to provide a great relaxing get-a-way worthwhile! :)
My husband and I stayed with our two children, ages 13 & 19. Beautiful condo best location on the sea wall. We really liked that there were two separate beds in the second bedroom, that way no one had to sleep on the couch. The decor was great, I want Yolanda to come to my house to help me decorate :). All the comforts of home were provided, couldn't ask for anything more. I've never had an easier time booking a vacation, Yolanda was a dream.
Owner Response: Thank you for a lovely review!! Doc and I were pleased to have our condo available for you and your family.
Beautifully decorated great location and even thou their were others around we felt very privet, it was relaxing and quite. The location was wonderful. Easy accesses to all our needs.
Owner Response: Thank you Michele, Your great review is greatly appreciated! By the way, don't get too hot in New Mexico! :) Thanks again.
We had such a wonderful time in Galveston which was due largely in part to the condo! The complex itself is very well kept and quiet, the pools were pristine and the room was impeccable. The view of the pool and ocean was great and all of the attention to detail inside the room was impressive. Our toddler was so excited to find the toys and books! Yolanda and Doc were very accomodating and tended to us very promptly. We hope to return someday soon! Thanks for a wonderful stay! -Amber and family
Owner Response: Thank you Amber! It was very nice of you to post a review of our beach condo! And a great one at that! :) Hope to see you soon,
We had a very enjoyable stay at the Dawn Condo. Very clean and comfortable. Everything works and Yolanda has all the small things covered. Need a beach towel? Games for the kids? Movies? Wine opener? Check, check, check, check, and more. On top of that, great ocean and pool view and location. We couldn't have been more pleased and hope to stay again. Thanks! John and Stacy, College Station
Owner Response: Hi John and Stacy, Thank you for the lovely review but most of all I am so glad you and your family had a wonderful time! It has been my pleasure to make sure everything is almost perfect if not perfect. :)
Doc and Yolanda have done such a wonderful job. The unit is just like being at home. Great kitchen is well equipped. Layout of the unit works really well for parents with pre teens and teens and would work well for younger children as well. Closets are large and rooms include dressers for storage. Coffee pot is great, a coffee measuring scoop is all I needed. There are plenty of towels, bath and beach as well as linens for the bedrooms. Our boys loved the fuzzy blanket and body pillow. The balcony looks out over one of the two pools and out to the gulf. Be sure to check out the other pool, often we were the only ones there. Lots of dining and shopping options, check at Cafe Michael Burger, great burgers and so clean. Krogers on 61st was the better market, but Walmart is just across the road if you need it. There is also a convience store on the corner just outside of the gate of the condo buildings. Lots of things to do in the area, we had a great time learning to surf with Brian at C-Sick Surfing and board rental at Southern Spears Surf Shop. We hated to leave today!
Owner Response: Thank you for the great review!!
As mentioned before, what you see advertised is exactly what you get - a condo very nicely furnished in a very convenient location. Emailed Yolanda at the last minute looking for a nice place to stay with my family and how pleasantly surprised we were. Again, thanks for the quick response and we had a great time.
Owner Response: Thank you for the great review! I was very glad to have a place for your last minute stay. :)
We just finished our second winter at The Dawn and enjoyed every minute of our experience. The condo is just as pictured and has everything one could need. Just bring food and clothing! Yolanda is a gracious hostess and takes care of the property very well. It has become our "2nd home".
Owner Response: Thank you, we enjoy sharing our wonderful condo with you and Claudia each winter! :-)
We just got back from the airport less than an hour ago and I had to sit down to write this review. What a perfect week we just had! Yolanda, your condo is perfect. Comfortable, tastefully decorated and so well equipped. It was a slice of heaven. In the morning with coffee on the balcony, watching the waves feeling the warm breeze was such a welcome change from cold Michigan weather. We walked along the seawall and played on the beach. The condo is perfectly located! From Minature golf to Moody Gardens to the Strand everything was just minutes away. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We can't wait to come back to Galveston.
Owner Response: Thank you Tammy! This beach condo is a favorite of many guests. The condo has a great location and it is very calming inside with great exterior views of the pool and ocean. I hope you can make it to Galveston and our beach condo to celebrate your husbands birthday. :)
My sister and I stayed at this condo a earlier this month, and we were impressed! The owner was very gracious and helpful, and let us know everything we needed to make our stay easy and enjoyable. The condo is very beautiful, with designer touches. The bedding is luxurious, and the details such as granite counter-top and gorgeously tiled bathrooms made us feel pampered from the moment we walked in the door. I highly recommend staying here!
Owner Response: Thank you so much! We really enjoy sharing our lovely condo and it makes us feel good when we recieve gracious reviews! :)
i had to spend a week in the houston area for some job-related training. didnt want to just do the get up go to class go sit in hotel thing so we rented this lovely condo.there was absolutely nothing you would lokk and say id do that different. gulf across the street.walmart next door. quick hop down to the beach and only 30 minute drive to houston proper. this place turned a dull week into a mini vacation. i would definitely stay here again. kudos to yolanda on a job well done.
Owner Response: Thank you Nik! I am very glad you had a great time and our beach condo and Galveston made your job related training more tolerable. :0
We loved this condo! It is very nicely appointed, very clean and updated with everything you need. The location is great - just around the corner from Moody Gardens and right on the seawall. The beds are extremely comfortable. We also used the pool which was very nice. Great view of the beach and the pool right from the patio. Everything listed in the VRBO information was represetatie of the property. We will definitely recommend this place to friends and would love to come back. Yolanda was very helpful in getting everything set up for us. I highly recommend thier condo!!
We had a fantastic time last week at Doc's condo in Galveston. Perfect weather, and beyond perfect amenities in the condo. Extremely comfortable....large, stylish rooms. The king size bed is what dreams are made of. Slept very well for the entire 6 days we were there. When you're inside the condo it's very quiet. Can't hear anything going on outside. A complete respite of pure comfort and relaxation. The gourmet kitchen is inviting with anything we could possibly need. The convenience of a full size kitchen is priceless. Being on the third floor was not so bad because the VIEW was well worth the climb. We were surprised to see the new pool. Lovely rock water features and relaxing cool waters to float the cares of day away. Everything was memorable and the stylish condo just made our trip that much better. Next year we're bringing our teenagers. Doc's has plenty of room and we can't wait to get back to the beaches. Thanks for a well cared for beautifully decked out comfortable getaway! One to remember. ? Rob and Karen Dallas TX
Owner Response: Thank you for the lovely review!! I was glad to hear that you and your husband had a wonderful time together without the kids. Sounds like you couldn't help but miss them. :0
A great place for a family of younger children. The pools were great and the condo is right across the street from Wal-mart. There were several things that were listed to bring (ie: toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent), and they were provided in the condo(may have been left over from previous guests?). There is a grill on location, but not near the condo. We all had a very good time and loved sitting out on the balcony for breakfast and in the evenings! When we return to Galveston-we will definately book this condo again!
Owner Response: We are pleased you enjoyed the condo and the swimming pool. We try to provide at least one roll of paper towels and toilet paper for each bathroom as well as detergent. We cannot know how much of these products will be used by the different guests and will be available for the next guest checking in. We do not want our guests to be disapointed therefore we recommend that they bring these items. We also have many guests who replenish these items which is very helpful to the next guests checking in. Thanks again for the great review! :0
We just returned from a week in Galveston (June 1 - June 6, 2010) - we LOVED our time at "Docs Quarters at the Seawall" and we couldn't be happier about our choice. The condo is decorated beautifully and they have thought of everything - dishes, beach towels, cooking appliances and utensils, high chair, pack-n-play - it made our visit so enjoyable. The facility was well maintained and our kids really enjoyed spending time at one of the two pools. We were also happy to be close enough to the beach that we could take a walk (although I'd recommend taking a stroller if your kids are young) as well as close to more than one grocery store for "supplies" for the week. We took day trips to Houston (for an Astros game as well as a trip to NASA) and Kemah (fun spray area and park for younger kids as well as amusement park rides for older kids and adults). I'd HIGHLY recommend eating at T-Bone Tom's in Kemah - worth the drive for some great food at reasonable prices - as well as Mario's on the Sewall - we ate there twice during our visit (the Popeye's pizza was excellent). We're already thinking about our next visit and hoping the condo will be available next year!
Every detail carefully chosen by Yolanda lends itself to a luxurious retreat after spending a day at the beach or at one of the many other activities Galveston offers. You'll enjoy a great view of the Gulf waves from both the master bedroom and the balcony/living area. Spacious and comfortable, with a wonderfully outfitted kitchen, we couldn't have been more pleased with our experience at Doc's at the Seawall. Yolanda was a gracious off-site host, taking the time to make sure we arrived and that everything was perfectly prepared for a pleasant stay. The grounds of Dawn Galveston are also beautifully landscaped, making relaxing by the pool another enjoyable, soothing activity. Star Drug downtown and Miller's Seawall Grill were two of the local restaurants that prepared exceptional meals. Enjoy your holiday in Galveston!
Owner Response: Thank you for a gracious review! I am very glad you had a last minute change from your previous accomodations and decided to make your vacation at Docs Quarters @ the Seawall. :0
We loved our stay at Docs Quarters. It was perfectly positioned right on the Seawall. The condo was lovely and spacious and being next to Walmart was very convenient.We hope to come back in the future and we have already recommended it to our friends and family.
Owner Response: Thank you!, we were so glad you were able to make it out of Scotland and into Galveston after the Iceland Volcano eruption.
Absolutely awesome condo! I have done numerous rentals through VRBO including Orlando, Perdido, Pensacola, and other Galveston properties. Far and above, this condo exceeded them all. The view is spectacular even during a storm, the furnishings are outstanding and the master bed more comfortable than my own. The interior finish work was amazing with crown molding even in the bathrooms. All of the details were thought of down to a "pub" style table and stools on the balcony so that it gets your eyeline above the railing for an unobstructed view. Will definitely check availablity of this property first on any return trips. Oh, and Yolanda beat the record of any owner replying to my inquiry email. I think I hit send and my phone rang
Owner Response: Thank you! We try to provide the best place ever for your vacation!
Great place to vacation. Condo in excellent spot near beach and close to many things available in Galveston. We sat out on the balcony and could see the beach/ocean as well as listening to the waves come in. The decor is very dreamy. The condo brings the comforts of home but yet provides the atmosphere that you're definitely being pampered. Everything in the condo is very clean and well maintained. We will definitely be coming back!
Owner Response: Thank you! We definetly try to pamper! :0
Absolutely awesome condo! I have done numerous rentals through VRBO including Orlando, Perdido, Pensacola, and other Galveston properties. Far and above, this condo exceeded them all.

My friends and I had a great time at the condo! The view was super and the decor is wonderful! Hopefully, we will be able to visit again next spring break! :^)
What a wonderful place to stay! We spent 2 months here as Winter Texans and felt at home from the moment we entered the unit. It is well furnished, comfortable, and nicely decorated, not the typical "motel look". It had everything that we needed for our stay. The beds are comfortable, the TV is great and the view fabulous. Our only complaint was the terrible winter that Texas had this year. We have already booked our time for next year. Yolanda and Dale are wonderful people to deal with.
As the last three comments mentioned, Docs Quarters at the Seawall is a great place for sisters to go on a short retreat. The pictures and descriptions are accurate and we truly spent a wonderful holiday weekend there. The condo had plenty of room for us and two other friends. We hope to return again!
My sister and I loved our stay at the condo, it was a great place to spend my 40th birthday, however our stay was not nearly long enough and we didn't want to leave! Our ONLY issue was getting everything back in it's place by check out time since we are late riser's! Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo, it's so nice to stay in a clean homey enviroment and we would highly recommend it to others!
The condo was great, very well decorated and very spacious. Our grandson loved the bunk bed. The kitchen had everything we needed. The only thing I would like to see there is some laundry detergent. otherwise it was perfect.
My sisters and I enjoyed a wonderful girl's weekend at this condo in October. It was beautiful and spacious with everything you could think of.
the condo was beautiful and perfect. the bedding was top of the line and very clean. other then being pregnant and not used to hot weather it was a nice vacation and i hope to do it again next year. just hated being on the third floor.
The condo was great! My entire family was very impressed with the cleanliness of the condo and with the fact that everything you needed was provided. We all were very comfortable and felt like we were at home. The convenience of the location to the waterpark and other attractions was great. The only drawback of the entire trip was that we wish we could have stayed longer. Yolanda is very sweet and a pleasure to work with. Thank you so much!
Doc's Quarters was a wonderful weekend get a way for my family of 7 adults. We had everything we needed in the condo. Very nice,clean,spacious and loved the balcony over looking the pool. The only things you need are food and clothes. EVERYTHING else was provided for you, which made the trip even nicer.. Thanks Yolanda, We loved our stay and look forward to going back again.
This condo was amazing! We loved everything about it. It was very roomy all the furniture and decor were beautiful. It has a great view from the patio. Loved that it had a high chair and pack-N-play. It has two pools that are so nice and clean. We could have stayed the entire trip in Galveston at the condo! My children loved everything the patio, toys, puzzles, books, movies, and even the stairs. When we got home my 4 year old said "No not this house can we go back to the other one!" We didn't mind the stairs, I'm 6 months pregnant and even carried my 1 year old up them. We had a GREAT time and definitely want to come back.
Lovely place w/great views of the ocean and the pool- very clean, comfortable, luxurious, convenient to all attractions and yet very quiet! The only drawback was two flights of stairs to the third floor- not really a problem for our party of three adults and four children(three under 3),but this could be a dealbreaker for some, and you should know that there's no elevator for carrying groceries, etc.. We certainly will return here- and we have previously stayed in the BEST hotels in Galveston and the top floor penthouse of a much newer condo highrise. We loved Doc's Quarters!
We were very happy with our stay at Doc's Quarters, the condo is very true to the pictures. It was a very comfortable place to stay for our trip.
We loved our stay at the condo! It was beautifully decorated with high quality furnishings. The rooms were generous in size and had all the comforts of home. The view from the balcony was great! We could see the Gulf and the pool. Surprisingly, there was very little noise from the pool or neighbors. We had relatives staying in the same floor plan in the complex and theirs did not even compare to the quality we saw in this condo! The condo was close to everything! We were only minutes away from Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn. Restaurants were very close as well. And of course, Walmart and Kroger were convenient for groceries and left behind items. Our son begged us not to come home and every day asked to go to the beach. It was a very nice, relaxing vacation.
This condo was very comfortable, roomy enough for my family of 5 and it was absolutely beautiful! The view from the balcony is breathtaking, you can see the pool and the ocean from one spot. It was close to everything, there is a walmart one street over for easy grocery shopping. There is a VCR and a DVD player, and several DVD's there to choose from. The kids room has puzzles and games for them to play, they loved it! It has everything you need in the kitchen, toaster, blender, can opener... you name it! I wish we could have stayed longer!!
We had a very pleasant stay at your condo on July 3-6, 2009. We appreciated the roominess, the high quality of the furniture, appliances, cutlery and electronics. The beds were very comfortable, the shower of the master bathroom was great and the baby high chair was a nice touch. The seaside theme decorations were beautiful; it looks like someone spent a lot of time choosing them. We enjoyed the very nice outside pools too.
Two thumbs up for this great place to stay! Beautifully furnished and everything that you need. The location is perfect and close to everything. Our kids love having their own room and there's plenty of room to spread out. Very clean and comfortable. We will definately be back!!! Thanks Yolanda for such a pleasant stay!
Loved our stay at Doc's Quarters on the Seawall in June 2009! The condo is modern, beautifully decorated and has all the comforts of home - even nicer. Close to everything in Galveston. We had plenty of room for our family of 2 adults and 4 children and appreciated the children's videos, books and puzzles. The stairs up to the unit may be a challenge for some but is worth the view of the gulf and the pool. We could watch our kids in the pool from the balcony. Thanks, Yolanda!
This condo was an oasis! My family of 6 adults and a baby all felt very cozy here! We brought food for lunch and dinners and everything was there we need, which made the trip very cheap! Which is always a plus. But needless to say I HIGHLY recommend this condo to everyone!!!! Thanks again Yolanda for being so helpful.
We stayed June 4-6, 2009. Loved it! The condo was very welcoming, cozy and beautifully decorated.
I stayed from May the 29th thru June the 1st. It was a fabulous and beautiful place. I can hardly wait to go back. Everything was there that I needed. It was very cozy and comfortable. The balcony view was fantastic. Right above the pool and a good view of the ocean. The breeze was unbelievable.
Comment Text: Stayed on memorial weekends 2009. This is one of the best condo that I've stayed. The location is great, right on seawall, over looking the swimming pool from the patio which is very nice, you can watch your kids playing in the pool from there...There is a partial ocean view from the master bedroom. It is also very close to Wal Mart, very convenient to pick up some stuff when needed. The condo is very well decorated, beds are new and comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped, we got everything we needed, loved it... definitely will come back to this place again when visiting Galveston.
