      This is a lovely 1 bedroom condo that is nicely furnished and has a beautiful view of the ocean. The king size bed was so comfortable! I felt very safe in the neighborhood and it was very quiet. Just a walk across the street and you are on the beach. Good location for using Galveston transit services. The bus/trolley stop is right on the corner and will take you just about anywhere you want to go on the island for $1! I will stay here again!

      Condo was fabulous but the road traffic was horrible. I'm a heavy sleep yet I still had trouble sleeping. I can't believe none of the reviews commented on this.

      Owner Response: Oh no! I'm very sorry the traffic was terrible during your stay! If only I could move the street from the ocean, beach and my condo . . . . .During the day, the Ocean and Beach is a beautiful sight from the balcony! I have thick double lined drapes and I'm sorry that did not seem to muffle the traffic noise for you.

    • Perfect

      Reviewed by Jeani from Sulphur, LA on August 08, 2016 for their trip during August 04, 2016

      Docs Quarters at the Ocean was perfect for my husband, 21 month old and myself. My sisters had other condos rented in the same location so it was perfect to all have your own privacy but could still be together. It was truly a lovely experience to wake up and have your morning drinks on the patio watching the waves and morning go getters. The beach is right across the street with easy access. the Beach was unbelievably clean and free of trash and seaweed. The condo was VERY clean and even though a 1 bedroom still very spacious. This condo does face the seawall so it can get a little noisy with traffic and cars. The curtains in the bedroom and living room are black outs and work very well! Yolanda is a gem to work with and easily accessible and readily available to answer any questions or concerns. We forgot to turn the air up on our way out and I sent her a text on our way home and no problem. We saw my sister's condo she rented from Doc's Quarters as well and that one too was WOW!

We didn't want to have to spend all our time in the car, going from place to place doing things. We had everything we needed on Seawall Blvd. Great places to eat & shop. The pool area is beautiful and the view from the condo was just gorgeous. I sat out on the balcony early in the morning with my cup of coffee....just listening to some music I brought with me and looking at the water and listening to the waves. It was so relaxing. It was everything we were hoping for. We WILL go back. Thank you for providing us with a new favorite place to vacation.

      We booked this condo for a quick getaway for some much needed rest and relaxation. It provided that and much more. The views from the balcony are great for catching beautiful sunrises in the morning. The condo is tastefully decorated. Sometimes places near the ocean go overboard with fish themed decorations but not this place. They have a nice welcome set up with menus from local places to give you an idea of places to try that are not chain related. Yolanda was a pleasure to work with and was quick to our responses. If you are looking for a place to stay, look no further as you will not be disappointed with this condo.We look forward to our next trip.

      Loved this little condo, it was what I needed for my first solo get-away. I wanted time to relax and clear my head and this place offered just the environment. I walked a short distance to rent a bike and rode up and down the seawall each day. It was also great for when a friend visited for a day and we enjoyed the pool. The only thing I would love to see here is a set of binoculars! Bring your own! I wanted to see dolphins and ships etc. up closer! That would have made the stay better! Very clean, comfortable and accommodating. I would stay again.

      Reviewed by Solea L. from Albuquerque on September 16, 2015 for their trip during September 2015

      It was an awesome, cozy condo to spend our honeymoon. It was very clean and had all the touches of home. Yolanda was very sweet and had a wedding card, chocolates and wine when we arrived. Unfortunately it rained the whole time but that's to be expected next to the gulf! The only thing that occasionally was noticeable was the seawall traffic, which probably wouldn't have mattered to us if it hadn't been raining. :) We plan on staying at Doc's Quarters in the future.

    • Disappointed - Owner did not advise of damage

      Reviewed by Karen M. on September 02, 2015 for their trip during August 2015

      My main reason for renting this condo was the view - so I could see the ocean every morning when I opened my eyes. When we arrived, we found a big piece of plywood over the lower windows in the bedroom, blocking the view! There were dirty footprints on the plywood. I contacted the owner (Yolanda) and asked for a discount, as the property was not as advertised. She said she would refund $20 or we could just leave! I feel that her response was very unprofessional. When I asked why she did not let us know about the problem with the window, she stated that it was supposed to be fixed on Monday. We arrived on Thursday, so she had plenty of time to notify us and let us know of the situation. Any good businesswoman would have offered a discounted rate, given the condo was not as advertised. The view sells the place. We were very upset by her attitude and actions (or lack thereof). The condo itself is nice. It is on the second floor, so you must be able to negotiate stairs with heavy suitcase in tow. There was a strong odor inside that smelled like insecticide, but it was tolerable. While the view is good, the road noise is distracting, especially in the morning when you are trying to sleep in. Seawall Boulevard is right outside the bedroom window. This is a VERY busy street! The only time you can hear the ocean is when cars are not zooming by. The bed is super soft (plush). If you have back problems and require support, this mattress is not for you! The mattress actually sinks in when two people are on it. We did enjoy the balcony view, despite the dead corn plant. Bring mosquito spray. I'm not sure if the dead corn plant was harboring mosquitoes, but we got attacked. Also, bring your own toilet tissue, dishwasher detergent, clothes detergent, clothes softener, body soap, and coffee (don't forget the creamer)! The washcloths were threadbare, but the towels provided were nice. They also provide beach towels. Overall experience would have been OK were it not for the owner's attitude. Probably will not stay in the location again due to the road noise.

      Owner Response: The window is a large picture window and the entire lower part of the window does have plywood because of a bad hail storm. If one is a child, the view would be obstructed. I was told by the condo manager that the window was going to be repaired prior to this traveler’s arrival. The traveler called me on the second day of her stay and requested 35% of a 4 night stay which I told her was unreasonable. I explained that I was not aware that the window had not been repaired. The remaining upper part of the bedroom window still allows an amazing view of the ocean. The ocean can also be viewed from inside the condo looking out from the balcony window doors as well as from the balcony. This traveler threatened to leave bad reviews if I did not provide her with her requested discount. I told her Docs Quarters is committed to obtaining 5 star reviews. I told her if she was not pleased with the condo even though she had spent an entire night. I would refund her entire money. She refused the offer because she said she was “settled in” and she also made it very clear she would leave bad reviews in all my advertised websites! Please read my other guest reviews for objective opinions of my condo’s amenities. If my condo was as bad as she indicates why didn't she accept my offer to leave with a full refund?

    • Immaculate and Tranquil

      Reviewed by Michael R. on August 28, 2015 for their trip during August 2015

      First, my wife is as picky as they come when we stay out of town. She walks around the room for a good 30mins before she settles in wondering what "surprises" may pop out. We walked in and she gave the living room a glance, walked into the kitchen, the bedroom, bathroom, looked out the door to the balcony and kicked her sandals off within 5mins. Some people rate places 5 stars when they really deserve a solid 4. Not this place, it was spotless and the scene overlooking the gulf is amazing if you can get past Galveston's brown water but hey that's not the owner's fault! If this property was in Florida, South Padre or Maui there is no way it would ever be available for rent because people would never leave. The check-in process is seemless, it's within walking/biking/driving distance of everything you need for a 3+day stay. Although Galveston may not be much of a destanition like South Padre this condo makes a trip down there worth it every day of the week and twice on Sunday! It rained two days while we were there so we were pretty much stuck inside. The proximity to the water and the balcony overlooking it made you feel like that was as close as being actually being on the beach. Not sure why all owners of rental properties don't follow this example, not a bad thing to say about it at all. The only semi-issue was the noise a group of Navy women made coming and going one night. There were probably 6 or 7 of them above us, if I'd been a single man it wouldn't be an "issue" but for a married man there with his wife they were a bit noisy but we tolerated it. I didn't leave much detail about the condo in this post because the owner's comments are 100% true, no BS. Keep this place bookmarked if you plan to make a run down to Galveston. Heck, if I stay in Houston I may just book this place and make the hour drive into the city.

      Reviewed by Dana D. on July 12, 2015 for their trip during June 2015

      We love The Dawns condos and were so happy to find this 2nd floor condo directly facing the beach. I could sit on the balcony all the time to watch the waves and the people going by. This set-up was perfect for our family of four. We enjoyed breakfast and coffee on the balcony before heading to the beach each day and often packed a picnic lunch for our time by the water. With the washer/dryer, arriving home with clean clothes instead of a suitcase full of dirty clothes makes it so much easier to get back to the real world. The condo is tastefully furnished and there wasn't a thing lacking in the kitchen. We would definitely stay in this condo again!

      Owner Response: Thank you for the lovely review! We hope you come back for next year's vacation!

      The pics online look great but when we walked into the condo we realized the pics did not do this condo justice! It is so up-to-date and fresh with beautiful furniture and accessories. The weather was not very good while we were there but we still enjoyed sitting out on the balcony with a glass of wine and just plain relaxing. All the great restaurants were very close and directions Yolanda gave were perfect. Our short vacation could not have been better, thanks to Yolanda. The Hardins

    • Great facility

      Reviewed by Brae M. on May 05, 2015 for their trip during April 2015

      The facility was really nice. Appliances and decorations were up-to-date. A very comfortable condo. It's nice that the condo was a bit farther down the highway so we didn't have to hear all the noise from the tourists that weekend as if we were right in the heaviest traveled part of Galveston. Some things to note is that you will still hear traffic noise from the highway, all through the night. Also, the pull out bed has an egg crate mattress on top of the pull out mattress but it still isn't that comfortable. The pool is nice, the hot tub is nice and we were really close to things we wanted to do/see. The view is nice.

      Owner Response: I'm sorry I didn't meet the 5 star expectations we try very hard to achieve. I understand sleeping comfort is important and sofa bed mattresses is just not going to be the same as a regular bed mattress. Some guests don't hear the traffic while sleeping but I know it's different with some people. I''m sorry that the traffic noise that didn't get muffled by our heavily lined curtains wasn't enough. I'm glad you mentioned the view which is amazing! A double edge sword for sure, the same FANTASTIC ocean view without the traffic would be ideal!

      Beautiful condo! It was very clean, tastefully decorated, and the kitchen has everything, including a slow cooker. I was concerned about traffic noise since the condo is directly across from Seawall Blvd and the beach. It was not an issue because the windows have blinds and drapery that block noise and light. The owner, Yolanda, was very warm and accommodating. We would stay here for a return visit or at one of her larger condos if we travel with another family.

      Owner Response: Thank you! We go the extra mile to make sure our guests have everything they need for a pleasurable Galveston stay!

    • Beautiful condo, perfect for one or two guests

      Reviewed by Heather G. from Houston on April 10, 2015 for their trip during April 2015

      I was looking for a place with an unobstructed view of the ocean, and this little condo fit the bill perfectly. Everything was clean and well kept, as well as nicely decorated. Both the balcony and bedroom have unobstructed views, and the balcony also had a place to sit outside and enjoy a meal while looking at the ocean. The complex itself was also very nice. The only noise came from the traffic on Seawall Blvd., but that's expected if you want an ocean view. At night, once people leave the beach for the day, it dies down and you don't notice it anymore. Overall, I would highly recommend this property, and plan on staying here again.

      Owner Response: I agree the unobstructed ocean view is amazing! The sounds of the surf, seagulls and the city can be heard while drinking your margarita or enjoying your morning meal at the balcony. The ocean breeze can also be felt. The condo is super spacious with its master bedroom and separate living space with a queen size sleeper sofa. Thank you for letting our potential travelers know we provide a 5 star facility.

      Nice spot. Spacious and comfortably furnished. Very convenient to Moody Gardens if you have a conference there. Owners are very nice and helpful. Care about your experience. Two small issues. Opening the curtains in the living room can be tricky because the curtain pole falls down . If you aren't accustomed to traffic noise you will notice the amount of vehicles that go by even with the windows closed. The view is very nice but there is s road between you and the water. I would consider staying here again.

      Owner Response: Hi Ann, Thank you for the lovely 5 star review! Prior to your visit we installed heavily lined curtains for the windows to minimize traffic noise for guests who prefer a very quiet environment. I did not realize this was going to cause an issue with the pole. I appreciate you bringing this to my attention and we will look into resolving the problem. We are so glad you and your husband enjoyed your stay while attending the conference and found the condo appealing with an AMAZING ocean view. We hope to have you back next year!
