    • Fantastic Beach Property

      Reviewed by Jutta B. from Sealy, TX on October 15, 2017 for their trip during October 2017

      The home is very spacious and comfortable and very close to a stretch of great beach. We had some nice waves and a very clean stretch of beach to walk on. Beach access is close and easy, neighbors are friendly and easy going. Close to Moody Gardens and a nice Krogers on Seawall Blvd. Grocery store next to the property is too expensive and not that well stocked, make the 10 minute drive to Krogers. Would like to repeat the visit, we had a great time.

      Owner Response: Hi Jutta, Thank you for the lovely review on our beach home! We so greatly appreciate the 5 star review! Its true, that's its better to buy groceries and other items in town, sometimes convenience can be too expensive. The neighborhood does try and keep a clean beach. Hope to have you back again to our little house by the sea!

      Yolanda and Doc have a lovely place here and we will definitely return. Beds were comfy, house was immaculate, and the beach access was exactly as promised. The kitchen was nicely stocked with dishes and cookware and we used the grill outside several times. Yolanda helped with some weird questions I had and was extremely responsive. Our family of four had plenty of space to spread out and we took advantage of the balconies and views as often as we could. We can't wait to come back!

      Owner Response: Thank you Traci for your gracious and lovely guest review! I do hope you visit us again!

      Reviewed by Tiffany G. on August 03, 2017 for their trip during July 2017

      This was a very nice town home, with all the amenities you could want in a beach vacation. Loved having the storage unit below and water to wash off all our of beach equipment and store it in each day. Location was perfect, and just a short walk to the beach, which was very nice. The grocery store next door had everything you could need. Loved that the beach was not crowded and did not feel like we were in the "touristy" part of Galveston.

      Owner Response: Thank you so much for your gracious and lovely review!

      Reviewed by Lorrena D. on July 26, 2017 for their trip during July 2017

      Yolanda the property owner was great, she made sure we where comfortable as guests. The condo was clean and cozy. It had everything we needed for a great stay. The best part was being able to walk to the beach with my kids without having to cross the busy road. Also, the condo is a one minute walk to the Seven Seas grocery store was a huge plus. The beds where comfy and the cable TV's where nice for the kids for relaxing after being out in the sun all day. There is a house in behind the condo as you can see in the picture but the side views of the beach and sounds of the waves where awesome. We will be back next summer. There is plenty of beach toys for the kids in the storage room, one thing to remember to pack.

      Owner Response: Hi Lorrena, Thank you so much for this awesome guest review on our beach home! We hard to provide the perfect stay for our guests and getting the awesome guest reviews make it all worthwhile! See you again next year! Yolanda

    • Great get-away spot

      Reviewed by Dawn P. from Houston on August 21, 2016 for their trip during August 2016

      Spent the weekend here with my family, 4 adults and 3 kids, the space was perfect - plenty of room for everyone. Having the bedrooms and one balcony on a separate floor from the living/kitchen area meant anyone could escape for some quieter time. The view of the gulf was great and the beach itself couldn't have been better. I've been down to Galveston many times and would rate this rental and beach area as one of my favorites and would stay here again without question. We did go down to the strand and take a harbor cruise, otherwise we were spent our time enjoying the beach and the house as a family.

      Owner Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to write a guest review and for the 5 star review! We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay at our home!

    • What a great weekend!

      Reviewed by George G. on February 03, 2016 for their trip during January 2016

      I grew up in West Texas so the beach and big water are a foreign concept to me. lol A weekend stay at this cabin taught me to really enjoy the beach and water. The stay was fantastic except that it was too short. The house is great, comfortable, and clean. The little things like have the light switches labelled made a big difference. Well organized and decorated, my wife loved the decorations, made the stay great. The communication with the owners could not have been better. Any questions I had were answered almost immediately with accurate answers. Thumbs up to the owners. It is also convenient to a grocery store and gas stations which are a plus. Also super quiet. Bottom line is that we would stay here again and make it a longer trip. Book here with confidence, you will not be disappointed.

      Owner Response: Hi George, Thank you so much for the 5 star review and the lovely comments! I am so pleased you and your family enjoyed Mardi Gras weekend at our home!

    • The unit was clean and comfortable

      Reviewed by Diane N. on December 10, 2015 for their trip during December 2015

      The beach was beautiful and so easy to access from the unit. The location cannot be beat with the grocery store so handy for everything you need without getting in the car. The unit is stocked with lots of supplies that made our stay a good one. Yolanda was a great hostess making sure the unit was safe since roofing work was being done during our stay. She was there when we arrived early so it was nice to meet her. If I had to search for a complaint, it would be the television in the main room was not a crisp picture but we were there for the beach not the football this weekend. We enjoyed Dickensonthestrand, the train museum, Moody Gardens and a playground in town. The restaurant next to the grocery store is perfect for a quick lunch or dinner. I would rent this unit again and we were very happy with everything.

      Owner Response: Thank you Diane for the 5 star review! It was my pleasure to meet you and your family and your little grandson! I'm glad the train museum was a big hit for him since he loves trains! I'm sorry the TV didn't provide a crisper picture unfortunately it is an issue with regards to the cable reception on the island. Please keep Docs Quarters vacation rentals in mind if you decide to come to Galveston again from Montana.

      Townhome was nice and clean and well appointed. All we needed to do was bring groceries. Walking distance to the beach and overall, very quiet. Three bathrooms was nice when you have four adults and two children. Lots to see and do in Galveston. This time of year is best. Water is warm and not very many people on the beach or visiting attractions. If you are looking for a nice place to stay that is affordable, this is it.

      The beach house was clean and ready for us. We had a wonderful stay. The only complaint is that we had to walk a ways to the beach, but it wasn't that bad. Our grandchildren had a great time and were so excited as it was their first trip to the beach. We recommend staying in your beach home to anyone except handicapped. We enjoyed Moody Gardens and eating at Gaido's.

      Owner Response: Thank you for your guest review and the 5 star rating! I am baffled by the comment that you had to walk a ways to get to the beach. Possibly you didn't find the public access between the front row homes to get to the beach or know that you can access the beach at the end of the fence near the grocery store.

    • Our 6th Year to Stay at Doc's Was Great (as Always)

      Reviewed by Katy G. on July 27, 2015 for their trip during July 2015

      We discovered Doc's 6 years ago and have loved it ever since! It has everything we need for a week at the beach. The kitchen has plenty of cookware and dishes, the living spaces are comfortable and pretty, it has plenty of bathrooms for our family of 5, and the bedrooms are comfy and accommodating. The kids love to play on the decks and there are plenty of sand toys in the storage room so we don't have to pack and bring our own toys down there. Since this beach is not open to the general public, it is never crowded and there are no cars driving down the beach to put my little ones at risk. For 6 years in a row of staying at Doc's the house has always been clean, well-maintained, comfortable, and the owner has always been very responsive whenever we have had a question; you can tell she truly cares about how our stay is going and works hard to maintain a quality beach house. I would (and do) recommend it to my friends as an excellent place to stay.

      Owner Response: Katy, thank you so much for writing a lovely review! We look forward to having you and your family stay at our beach home every year. Have a wonderful school year with the kids.

      Reviewed by Christy J. on May 25, 2015 for their trip during May 2015

      We had a wonderful family weekend and the property was very clean, freshly decorated, with upscale amenities. The beds were very comfortable, not at all lumpy like some beach properties. The bath towels were of high quality also; we felt right at home. It was a wet week and there was local flooding under many properties and beach roads, but this property was high and dry. The large cement pad under the town home stayed dry and there was no mud or puddles like some of the other beach homes. Made clean-up easier and teenage daughters happier. ;) Service was terrific too and we had helpful and friendly responses to emails within 24 hours. I'd highly recommend this property and will gladly stay here again in the future.

      The property was right on time for my family and I. We had everything we needed and more. I was really surprised how well equipped the home was for our stay.

      Our 3 days in Galveston were just what the doctor ordered...R & R! Weather was a little cold, wet and windy but that didn't seem to matter. Morning walks on the beach were invigorating and the beach was alive with birds, shells and other natural wonders. Dining was incredible with multiple local establishments to choose from.

      Owner Response: The island is always a fun stay and I'm glad you choose our beach home by the sea for your R &R. The ocean views from the balcony are always amazing! Thank you for the lovely review! It's always a pleasure for Doc and I read the wonderful reviews!

      The beach house was awesome! It was everything that a beach house should be! It was so much like home until the brown couch in the living room is the same one we have at home. It was equipped with all the necessities needed! The beach and ocean view was nice and peaceful! My children enjoyed the Schlitterbahn Waterpark and Moody Garden Aquarium! The only downfall was the weather it rained our entire stay! We enjoyed it so much that we stayed an extra day. I would recommend this house to anyone and we will return soon.

      We enjoyed our stay at Docs Quarters very much! The location was perfect and the beach was so close by. No major streets to cross and it was very quiet compared to public beaches in the area. The condo was super cute and had plenty room for 8 people. It was also well stocked and most importantly, it was clean. We had an overall great time and will definitely be back. We also recommend the little restaurant right next door called Nate's. The food was delicious and our waitress was very attentive. The shrimp linguini was out of this world... Yolanda, the owner, was very responsive and caring. So, if you are looking for a quiet getaway close to the beach, this would definitely be it! Birgit, Dan and Family

      This beach house was perfect for our family. We went with kids and grandparents and everyone of all ages had a blast! Location was great being so close to a private (no driving allowed) beach. It kept all the craziness and crowds away. The store being so close was also a huge plus. The furnishings and decor were perfect. Also, the owners were available by text any time I had a question. Yolanda was so sweet and thorough. We plan to head back to Galveston next year for an end of summer get away and we will most definitely be staying in one of Doc and Yolanda's properties. They know how to make people feel welcome and really seem to have everything figured out as far as guest comfort and needs. Thanks for an affordable and great weekend vacation!!

      Owner Response: Thank you for the lovely guest review! The home's location and nearness to the beach is fantastic and great for families with small children!

    • Home away from home

      Reviewed by Anonymous on September 27, 2014 for their trip during September 2014

      Loved our stay. The house felt like home and was very clean and upkept. The best part was waking up in the morning and hearing the waves crashing. Plenty of room and the house is fully stocked with dishes and other cooking utensils. We did not experience any sea weed issues like the some of the other reviews said. The beach was clean and the best part was that it was not crowed. The beach is about a five minute walk from the house(two roads of houses but you dont have to cross any major road to get to it), but try to avoid the house if there rain in the forecast because the roads leading to the beach from the house flood very easily. With that being said I would highly recommend this house. I would definitely stay here in a heart beat.

      Owner Response: Thank you for the 5 star review! We try and maintain the home with all the accessories you would find in your own home to make your stay more like, "home away from home"! And you're so right, the best part is waking up to the ocean waves crashing on the beach! :-) We hope to have you back soon for another Galveston stay! A 2 night weekend is not long enough to see and do everything Galveston has to offer.

      Reviewed by Traci from Quinlan, TX on July 30, 2014 for their trip during July 2014

      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!

      Owner Response: Hi Traci, Thank you so much for the lovely review of our beach home! We are so glad that you had a great and much needed vacation with your daughters! We are also glad that you enjoyed Galveston! We hope you keep us in mind for next year!

    • Disappointed with Beach

      Reviewed by Kathleen J. on June 11, 2014 for their trip during May 2014

      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 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!

      Owner 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.

      Loved the location, the easy access to the beach, how private and clean the beach was. Loved being located on the quieter end of the island. It's a cozy place. Well stocked with the key things for your stay, like beach chairs, kitchen items, TV/DVD/WiFi. The one negative would be the mattress in the main bedroom was way too soft, and the mattress and the mattress cover of the foldout couch upstairs is all stained/gross. Had to spray for ants in the kitchen if there were any crumbs on the counter. Thank you for your professional way you book, and your responsiveness to our electrical concern!

      Owner Response: Thank you for the positive aspects of our beach home! I was disappointed to read about the mattress and cover condition located on the sleeper sofa on this review. I depend on my housekeeper and guests to call or send me an email to let me know any issues or deficiencies so they can be corrected as quickly as possible! Immediately (after reading your review), I notified the housekeeping service and she was able to immediately clean and wash the mattress cover. I will also be doing a home inspection as soon as possible. The mattress at the master bedroom is a high quality, posterpedic mattress and I have received great feedback on the sleeping comfort. I do understand that everyone has their own mattress preference. Sorry we were not able to meet your mattress needs.

      The listing description and pics are very accurate (no surprises). The condo was spacious enough for my family of 6. Having 3 full bathrooms is a bonus with all the girls. Jamaica Beach is a great location in Galveston. It's far enough out of town for some peace but walking distance from a great little grocery store that has everything you need as well as good restaurants and sports rentals etc. It's a 15 min drive into town where we enjoyed higher end restaurants, Schlitterbahn, and the amusement park at Pleasure Peir (very fun). Beach access from this condo is very convenient and I was pleasantly surprised by the beach assessories that are provided in the condo (umbrellas, chairs, grills, boogie boards, etc.).

      Spent the long weekend with the family at Doc's Quarters Karankawa. I like being away from the crowded touristy area and this place was great. 11 miles west of the busy Seawall area of Galveston, but not lacking for any conveniences. As noted in the description there is a well stocked grocery store next door to the condo. We walked to the store, and there are restaurants nearby. Easy access to the beach. A quick drive in the car and we were in the heart of the action in Galveston which made the rest of the family happy. The owner, Yolanda, is very easy to work with. The unit was clean and well furnished. Comfy bed in the master. Lots of beach decor made this unit special from others we have rented. I will recommend this place to family and friends.

If the children were older they could have gone to the beach on their own since there are no major street that they had to cross. It was great to have 3 bathrooms, with 1 on the upper most level of the home. The kitchen was very well supplied with everything we needed, with plenty of seating at the bar or the dining table. With the 2 TV's and the beach we never once heard from the kids that they were "bored" which was their favorite phrase while traveling to and from Galveston. My cousin who lives in Galveston was impressed with Doc's Quarters and said she will recommed to her out of town guests and we will definitely be repeat guests. Thanks for a wonderful getaway.

      Owner Response: Hi Teddi, Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a wonderful review!! It is such a wonderful feeling to know that guests are enjoying our beach home!!

      I actually rented this condo for my brother and his family for our reunion. I had a house a few yards away (a numbers thing), but I can tell the Condo was excellent. It was extremely well decorated, had a very good view from the balcony, and you felt very at home in it. The location is great; a few yards from the beach (which was not crowded) and a small grocery store. They really enjoyed condo and all the amenities it had. They told so me many times. I would definitely rent this Condo again for my family. Finally, Yolanda was very nice and very easy to work with.

      Owner Response: Thank you Greg, Doc and I appreciate you choosing our beach home for your family. And thank you for taking the time tfrom your busy schedule to write us a guest review!

    • Great Beach Vacation

      Reviewed by Ted from Fort Worth, Texas on July 27, 2011 for their trip during June 2011

      This was our first vacation with our grandson (4 years old). Our whole family (5 people) enjoyed the Karankawa property. The house was lovely with very convenient access to the beach. Our grandson has said several times after our trip: "I love the beach!" You can't get a better testament than that.

      Owner Response: Thank you for the review! The love of family and small children is really what life is all about! The memories we make are priceless! Thank you for choosing our beach home. :)

      Just wanted to take a moment to tell you how much we enjoyed your beachhouse. It was exactly as the pictures show it to be. Everything was so clean and well stocked. We cooked most of our meals in the kitchen and loved being able to eat while looking at the beautiful views! The beach is so close and does not get deep until you get way out which was perfect for my little ones. All of the beach toys and chairs were great and we even left some extra toys behind for someone else to enjoy! I also thought the location was prefect. It is far enough from town so that you feel like you have your own little secluded piece of paradise but close enough to go enjoy all of the activities and food places when you want. My girls were sad to leave and have already asked when they get to go back to "their" beachhouse..lol. Thank you for everything!

      Owner Response: Thank you Misty for the lovely review! Doc and I are glad you, your husband and The Princess Girls had a marveous summer vacation at the beach home! We'll have it ready for you on our return next summer! :)

    • Weekend Get Away

      Reviewed by Meshawn S. from Ennis, Texas on June 01, 2011 for their trip during May 2011

      We LOVED this condo. Beach access was wonderful and just what we were looking for. The condo itself was in EXCELLENT condition and super nice. We loved the two balconies and the convience of being right there at the beach. The beach was not crowded, and the weather was perfect. The owner could not have been nicer. We could have actually just jumped in the car and headed down with nothing. There is a huge Walmart about 11 miles away that you pass on the way. This condo is just faraway enough that you are not fighting the crowd on the beach, and just close enough to town for a dinner out somewhere. We are defineltly planning on returning.

      Owner Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review, it is greatly appreciated! I am also glad you decided to "check out "Galveston and not drive to Florida! :)

    • Wonderful Holiday weekend stay!

      Reviewed by Anonymous from Spring, TX on May 31, 2011 for their trip during May 2011

      This was our first yr to stay in this townhome; however we have stayed the past two years at the neighboring tonwhome they own. The 2 bedroom is very spacious, decorated so nice, and has everything we could possiblby neat. Love the close access to the beach and the storage closet as well. The pictures are wonderful and the description is what you get, Really is a great home and we will definitely be back again! A few quick comments- I wasnt able to find the remote for the TV in the master bedroom (I may have just overlooked it) and a suggestion would be to provide a table and chairs on the patio on main kitchen level. We always enjoy eating dinner while watching the water in the evening and the small table and patio chairs provided just don't work for eating. I believe the other house has 2 sets of tables/chairs (If I remember correctly) and moving one over to this house would be nice. We were also a little jealous that this house didn't have a swing but the other house did. These comments are nothing to sway us from staying here again- just a few suggestions! We love working with you and staying at your home!

      Owner Response: Thank you for your Great Review and suggestions. We had not thought about having a table with chairs at the upstairs patio for eating meals and we will definitely look into purchasing an outside swing. Thanks again! We hope that you will continue to enjoy our beach home! :)

      This was family get away of 3 adults and 2 children. The house was so roomy and very well maintained. Easy acess to the beach and great ocean view. The 3 bathrooms was such a great plus along with the washer and dryer. After a day at the beach and sandy towels you can wash them and have clean towels again for the next day. Wonderful beach and the kids could go out and boggie board with their dad and go way out and the water not to be to deep. Kitchen had everthing you need to make your meals. The grocery store next door had anthing and everything you would need. We would highly recommend this home to any one stay for a beach get away..We will go back...

      We stayed at Karankawa over Thanksgiving 2010, and couldn't have had a more lovely time!!! We had a beautiful Thanksgiving dinner there with our siblings and families and the kitchen was equipped to the HILT!! There was nothing we were in need of in our preparations for our feast. We immensely enjoyed all the room that we had with having several children and adults there we had plenty of room to all have our space but yet was cozy, too. Everything was neat as a pin when we arrived, and Yolanda was so wonderful and helpful in our planning! I would recommend Docs quarters to anyone! Hope we can go back soon.

    • Great for our young family of 4!!

      Reviewed by A guest from Friona, TX from Friona, TX on February 03, 2011 for their trip during January 2011

      We stayed recently with our family of 4. We have a 22 mos old and 4 year old. The accommodations were perfect! With both bedrooms being downstairs, we weren't too far away at night time from the kid's room. The hosts also provided a pack-n-play for the toddler which was such a blessing since we flew in and weren't able to bring ours. The king-sized bed in the master bedroom was VERY comfortable. It was nice and soft, which I liked since I was 8 mos pregnant while visiting :) It was beautifully decorated all over with the beach theme. My kids loved the fish & shells everywhere. The location was perfect for the kids to be able to play at the beach. The beach was very clean when we were there & practically vacant (it was January). Despite the chill, the kids still had a great time playing! The listing & photos of the town home were very accurate. The property was well-maintained and stocked with plenty of towels, beach towels, blankets, pillows, etc....We didn't really cook much as we were visiting family on the island, but there were PLENTY of dishes, glasses & cookware. We did use the toaster for breakfast and the washer & dryer for a load of laundry before leaving. Communication with the owners was very easy and the info sheet provided before our stay answered all our questions about location, key access, working the TV, thermostat, etc.....It took about 12 minutes to get to the home from the end of the seawall without any traffic. We would highly recommend the Moody Gardens Aquarium and Rainforest Cafe as great things to do w/ kids. We would recommend this home to friends/relatives. In fact, we did! My dad & family were also staying on the island and came by our house. They were very impressed and acted interested as they are visiting our family on the island quite often. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

      Owner Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a lovely review! Most of all we were glad that you were pleased with the accomodations. :)

      We very much enjoyed our stay at Docs Quarters @ Karankawa. The property is family friendly and VERY close to the beautiful beach.It is well maintained overall and you will find everything you need for a vacation. The only suggestions I have is that the owner could provide a few things that would have made our stay more easy, such as a trash bags, laundy detergent (since you are expected to wash the beach towles before you leave) and a canopy for shade at the beach (this is very hard to transport in a car and is very needed when spending time at the beach with children). other than that this is a great house and I can highly recommend it.

      Owner Response: Thank you for the great review! We try to leave some trash bags, extra toilet paper, paper tissues, soap and laundry detergent. We are just not able to replenish these after each guest renter. Again thank you for choosing our beach home for your vacation get away! :0

      My family stayed for a whole week - everything we needed to have a comfortable stay was ready to go when we arrived. The owner was always very available and attentive. The house was very clean and accommodating and was everything we expected from the description on the website. The view was beautiful - I especially loved sitting on the balcony and listening the sounds of the waves and smelling the fresh "beachy" air. There was plenty of sleeping room and plenty of living space as well. The location is very convenient - with a small grocery store and restaurant within walking distance. Everything else you need is within reasonable driving distance. I would definitely stay there again when we go back to Galveston!

      Owner Response: Thank you for the lovely review! I also agree with you, sitting on the balcony and listening to the sounds of the waves and smelling the fresh "beachy" air is also a favorite pastime of mine.

      My mother, daughter and I stayed for three nights during the week at your beautiful condo for a girls get away. The furnishings were beautiful and we felt right at home. The views were better than the pictures online show. The beach is very close and it wasn't very crowded while we were there. The condo had plenty of room and 3 bathrooms. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the upper balcony, especially in the early mornings and late afternoons. We liked that the neighborhood was very quiet, but restaurants and other attractions were a close drive away. The grocery store nearby was also very helpful. My mother has trouble with her feet so the stairs were a little challenging but she said it was worth it. We definitely would stay here again.

      Owner Response: Thank you for your great review! We also think the view is spectacular.
