      Reviewed by Christie M. on December 06, 2019 for their trip during November 01, 2019

      We really enjoyed our time at Doc's. We even cooked Thanksgiving dinner. The beach is right across the street so it was easy to stroll on the beach anytime you want. We will be back!

      Owner Response: Thank you! Great Guests!

      First stay at this condo but hoping it won’t be the last. Everything about the condo was just as advertised. We had everything we needed for a nice stay. Just the right size for a couple. The view was perfect - 2nd floor right across from the beach. We couldn’t have asked for anything better. Thanks!

      Reviewed by Susan M. on October 03, 2019 for their trip during October 01, 2019

      Nice, clean and comfortable one-bedroom condo - close to a variety of activities. Enjoyed walking along the seawall at sunrise - followed by time in the pool. The email communication (via the VRBO app) with the owner helped us prepare and know what we needed to bring.

      Owner Response: Thank you for choosing our second home! We enjoyed being your hosts!

      Reviewed by Linda R. from Montgomery, Texas on September 09, 2019 for their trip during September 01, 2019

      This was our 5th stay at The Dawn condominiums; and our first at Doc’s Quarters. This condo has a great front row location and very beautiful décor. The A/C worked great. The King mattress was excellent. The pool areas at The Dawn are very well maintained and their settings are beautiful. We appreciate the detailed information Yolanda provided prior to arrival. Our stay was most enjoyable, and we would recommend Doc’s Quarters to our friends.

      Owner Response: Thank you for the greatly appreciated guest review! Doc and I were glad you had a great stay!

      Reviewed by Matt R. on August 12, 2019 for their trip during August 01, 2019

      Wonderful condo. The decor was amazing. And the extras were awesome. Yolanda though of everything. From pool floats and boogie boards in the closet as well as a little step stool for the kids to reach the sink.. It was amazing. The property was amazing as well. We only visited the pool closest to the condo and it was awesome. I would recommend this condo to anyone. Close to Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn. Also very close to 61st. Which is where alot of the best restaurants are located on the island off the seawall... Dont pass up on this beautiful property.

      Owner Response: Thank you! We greatly appreciated having been your host!

    • Delightful trip

      Reviewed by Patti A. on July 19, 2019 for their trip during July 01, 2019

      Doc's Quarters was exactly as advertised. The views were spectacular. Condo was clean and nicely furnished. We especially appreciated that basic items were available like condiments and other kitchen necessities. Only a couple of things that were disappointing. It would have been nice to have an alarm clock available. Also, the pull-out sofa bed wasn't very comfortable. Finally, it appeared that we could not lower the thermostat below 70 degrees. For those who have health issues and body thermostats that run high, that was uncomfortably high for a July visit. Otherwise the accommodations were very delightful.

      Owner Response: Hi Patty, I’m sorry the temperature was not cool enough for you and your guests. I didn’t realize you had a problem. Unfortunately, we have had a horrible heat wave. I would have gladly changed the thermostat setting for you. I have now allowed a temp lowering to 68, I’m sorry if you were not comfortable with regards to the temperature. Unfortunately, some guests have lowered the temperature to 65 and even lower and has caused our ac to freeze. This has ruined the condenser or caused problems because the air conditioner can’t maintain the condo that cold in this Texas heat. I have to agree that sleeper sofa mattresses are just not the same as a regular mattress on a bed and adults can feel the difference. Thank you again for your review.

    • Wonderful Stay!😁

      Reviewed by Stephanie S. on June 12, 2019 for their trip during June 01, 2019

      This is a lovely, very clean unit. It is exactly as pictured. The location is very convenient to attractions, but far enough west along the Seawall to be quieter. The property grounds are also clean and well kept. Both pools are very nice. There are BBQ areas which are very convenient. The beach is directly across the street, with easy access from the property through a gate and crosswalk. We had a wonderfully relaxing stay.

      Owner Response: Thank you! Doc and I are appreciative that you chose our home for your Galveston stay and enjoyed it as much as we do!

      First time in Galveston, had fun at the Mardi Gras festivities, ate amazing Fresh fish from Katie’s. Although the weather was not conducive to beach time, we loved running the beach, could go for miles! The condo was perfect for 2, very comfortable and quiet. Close proximity to Houston to take a day trip to Johnson Space Center. Thank you Yolanda!

    • This is a beautiful condo in a great location!

      Reviewed by Jeanette M. on February 14, 2019 for their trip during February 01, 2019

      We thoroughly enjoyed our weeklong stay in this condo. It's comfortable and more roomy than many 1 bedroom condos, and has a nice layout. It is updated and tastefully decorated. Very cushy king size bed, newer appliances, and comfortable furniture. We appreciated the washer and dryer right in the unit. The deck is small, but affords a stunning view of the Gulf. The owner, Yolanda, was easy to contact and responded very quickly. She was truly concerned that all went well for us, and we had no issues at all. The condo was very clean upon our arrival, except for the deck, which we were able to wipe down without a problem. All appliances worked fine. There are two large tv's, which unfortunately are not high def., but it was not a major issue. Just different if you're used to seeing that at home. The condo is on the second floor of three floors, and on the last day of our stay we did hear a lot of footsteps and what sounded like people running around in the unit above us. We later discovered that there was a family with a couple of young children in the condo above us. Thankfully, they arrived just one day before we left. Otherwise, the condo was extremely quiet and peaceful. All in all, this was a most enjoyable and refreshing getaway, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a confortable spot to stay in Galveston.

      Great location with beach access just feet away. We had a really good experience being 1st time renters through VRBO. Our view from the balcony was great! The bad smell of the place and the outdated living room furniture were the only negative encounters we experienced. We will definitely stay at this community again but in a 2 bedroom.

      Owner Response: Hi Zach, I'm glad you had a great experience and enjoyed our community! I'm sorry it rained the majority of your stay and probably accounted for the musty smell in the condo. Gosh, I'm really disappointed our living area furniture was not to your liking. All our furniture is practically brand new which includes the stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, the brand new sofa bed that was bought this year. The King size bed and luxury mattress was bought a year ago. We take pride in our home and providing a beautiful condo with high end amenities! Based on your comment, I greatly appreciate the 4 stars!

      Great location, close to beach and restaurants. Walmart super center next door very convenient. Only bad had to pay extra for parking, rented condo before and parking pass complimentary.

      Owner Response: Hi Mandy, Thank you for the very lovely guest review! The HOA has started charging $20.00 for a guest entire vacation stay. This was necessary to prohibit people from accessing the property and using the pools and beach when they are not guests of owners who pay the HOA for those amenities and those people make it difficult for owners guests to enjoy the property. I understand no one likes paying the 20.00 for parking but in this case it is necessary for our guests to have better enjoyment of the amenities. We hope this doesn’t deter you from keeping us in mind for another Galveston stay. Thanks again!

    • Cozy and warm for a winter stay

      Reviewed by Michael L. on January 08, 2018 for their trip during December 01, 2017

      When Old Man Winter visited Galveston for New Year's, we were cozy and warm inside. This condo was well furnished, especially the kitchen. The bed was extra comfortable. The negative was that you had better be prepared to do some walking and climbing when unloading your car in the parking lot. The unit is on the second floor. There are two sets of steps before you get to the stairs to the unit, and the stairs contains about 17 steps (I didn't count so am guessing). So keep that in mind when you are packing things to bring with you for your stay. But overall, a very comfortable unit.

      Owner Response: Hi Michael, I'm sorry you found the stairs to be an inconvenience. If one is used to walking into their home from their garage, it can certainly be an inconvenience. It is possible to eliminate the short stairs by parking near the exit gate and then their is only 1 flight of stairs. The view of the ocean and beach from the balcony which facing the ocean for most people is usually well worth the walk up the stairs. Thank you for stating how nice our condo is and the comfort of the mattress also for letting potential guests know that stairs are involved in getting to the condo.

      This was our first time to the island and the place was perfect! This was great for us and our 1 year old. Close to the beach and great view. The pool was a big plus for us. The condo has everything and more than you will need, very clean and updated with plenty of space. We look forward to coming back down and staying here. Thanks for making this a great vacation!

      Yolanda was very easy to book with. Very nice, even stopped by to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. Condo was as described and very clean. Morning traffic could get a little noisy sitting outside but if you are not an early riser you probably won't notice. Thank you for a very comfortable stay.

      Owner Response: Thank you for the lovely review. I was surprised you didn't mention the lovely ocean view. We hope to see you again.

    • honeymoon adventure

      Reviewed by Solea L. from Albuquerque on September 19, 2015 for their trip during September 01, 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 11, 2015 for their trip during August 01, 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 29, 2015 for their trip during August 01, 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.

      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!

      Reviewed by Brae M. on May 09, 2015 for their trip during May 01, 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!

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.

      Reviewed by Heather G. from Houston on April 10, 2015 for their trip during April 01, 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.
