      Reviewed by Dee Dee T. on May 01, 2017 for their trip during April 2017

      We had an absolute wonderful stay at the condo. It's was easy to find, it was easy to relax and chill. It's a beautiful place and such a perfect size for 4 adults and even a nephew that dropped in on us. We felt at home and treated it as home. The king bed was such a awesome sleep. When we go back to Galveston this will absolutely be our choice of where to stay. Thank you so much!!!

      Owner Response: Thank you for the lovely review!! It is greatly appreciated!

    • Big space with lots of comfort

      Reviewed by Anonymous on April 07, 2017 for their trip during March 2017

      My friend and I came to Galveston for the Ironman 70.3 and wanted comforts of home close to Moody Gardens (the start point). Docs Quarters NAILED it!! Two big bedrooms with two full bathrooms, a large living area with lots of seating, and a huge dining table at which to enjoy our meals. Beds were super comfy, linens were high quality and basic essentials were provided in the bathrooms. The kitchen was fully equipped with a few extras like coffee filters which we appreciated. It also had dishwasher detergent, sponges and dish soap which I really appreciated - it's so frustrating to be at a VRBO for a few days but have to buy even these basic essentials. Added bonus - the washer and dryer plus a small baggie of laundry detergent!!! Yolanda for the win for these super-stinky triathletes who didn't have to schlep dirty race clothes home! We couldn't have been more pleased with our choice for race weekend - right on the seawall, walking distance (right across the street) from Walmart, and so close to Moody Gardens it was almost like being at the official hotel. If I'm ever back in Galveston for a race, for a vacation or just because, I will definitely stay here again!

      Owner Response: Thank you for the lovely guest review. I'm also pleased you had a great time! You made my day! Hope to have you stay with us again.

      This condo has it all. It's clean, spacious and has everything you need in a home away from home. It doesn't disappoint and you do not have to settle. The location is ideal too. You are either in walking distance of or within a short drive from anything you may need or want. Yolanda is very informative and responds promptly to email inquiries. I am a single mom with three children and I would so stay here again. It's the perfect get away. Can't wait to return. We adored it. Thank you, Yolanda! We felt lucky to have discovered your property.

      Owner Response: Thank you! Thank you! for the lovely comments! Doc and I are so pleased you found our condo's location central to all attractions and our home the perfect place for a get-way weekend! Please keep us in mind for another great Galveston stay.

      We stayed with 4 adults and our 4 babies. We have stayed at the nicest hotels in Galveston, but will choose to stay here every trip in the future. Perfectly intimate for our close knit family, but allowed privacy with rooms on separate ends of the condo. Beautiful, cozy, clean, and great little patio steps from the pool. Cindy was so sweet and accommodating. She made sure we had everything we could need to make our trip great. Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your second home! Cannot say anything better about this beautiful place or wonderful owners. We loved our week of R&R. Only negative thing about the trip was having to say goodbye.

      This is a beautifully decorated and well appointed condominium. It has everything you need to enjoy your stay.

      I couldn't be happier with my choice of this condo for our quick last minute getaway. The condo was very nice with everything (and more) than we needed. Comfy bed, nice big shower in the master, soft & fluffy towels, very clean, spacious, easy access to the pool, great location on seawall, nice furnishings and decorations, and easy parking. The added touch of providing chairs and other items to take out to the pool or beach made it extra special. Cindy was very accommodating and helpful. Next trip to Galveston, this will definitely be the first unit I check for availability.

      Reviewed by Christopher P. on May 04, 2015 for their trip during April 2015

      This condo was excellent. When the island was packed with tourists and athletes for the Ironman-70.3 triathlon its central location made for easy travel to all of the island's hot spots. Parking in the complex was simple and safe, the condo was comfortably appointed and fully furnished with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Grocery stores, restaurants, Starbucks, and local attractions are all very close by. The owner was a pleasure to deal with throughout the process and quickly responded to all correspondence. I would happily rent from these owners again and recommend this property to anyone looking to visit Galveston.

      Owner Response: Thank you for your kind and thoughtful review! Please come back soon to stay!

    • Great week.

      Reviewed by Dave from Ft Worth, Tx on August 20, 2014 for their trip during August 2014

      Spent a week there with our 3 grandkids and had an excellent experience. Cyndi does a great job of maintaining it with plenty of supplies such as towels and a lot of toys for swimming pool and beach. Even though we did not have any needs during our stay we knew the owner was only a phone call or text away. I had read some reviews complaining about the overall facility (The Dawn) but we found it was well maintained, nicely landscaped and the kids could have played in the pool all day every day. This is a first floor unit away from the street and facing the pool. Our first choice when/if we return to Galveston.

      Owner Response: David! Thank you for the kind review! I m so happy your grandchildren and wife had a good time! Please come back soon! Thank you!

      My dance studio attending our first showstoppers national dance competition at Moody Gardens this summer. We discussed staying at the hotel or renting a condo and Oh are we happy with our choice to rent a condo. This beautifully decorated first floor (when you have several heavy bags, this comes in handy) condo fit my family of 6 perfectly. It was well stocked with linens, supplies, kitchen utensils and other necessities. The drive to our competition at Moody Gardens only took 6 minutes. Not only that we saved money doing it this way too!!! Both on our daily rental rate and we were able to stoke a kitchen instead of eating out 3 times a day. I also wanted to address the owners responsibility. Cindy, the owner, was available via text during my trip to assist me with any questions. Fantastic customer service! I have rented this space for next years competition and plan to make this an regular annual event for our family.

      Owner Response: Nikki, Thank you for your kind and thoughtful review! I really appreciate it! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and have booked for next year rental for your big event. Please refer your friends to me if they come to Galveston to stay! Take care and God bless!!!

    • A Great Condo

      Reviewed by Traci S. from Deer Park, TX on June 17, 2014 for their trip during June 2014

      We had a great time here. We have stayed at different condos in the Dawn for several years during an annual conference. This condo was great and the owner was a pleasure to deal with. The balcony has a gate that opens out to the first (smaller) pool which was a big plus. I could see the kids in the pool from the balcony when my husband was with them. The TVs in the bedrooms were smaller, but they were fine, we really were not there to sit in front of the TV so they got the job done. The TV/cable in the living room was great since my husband and kids were eager to watch the World Cup. They had floats for the pool in the second bedroom. We made several trips to Walmart across the street for items that we forgot. A couple of items to note, I am not a fan of smoking and there seemed to be a lot of people smoking in the pool and on the balconies so that was not pleasant and I do not remember that in the past. Also, we were planning on purchasing wifi while there so the kids could access the net, but the internet was $20/week (varying prices for different intervals of time) but is was per device so we skipped it. All in all it was a great time and we would love to stay here again! Remember trash bags, toilet paper, paper towels, beach/pool towels, laundry detergent. :)

    • Great Value for a Nice Condo.

      Reviewed by Anonymous on June 09, 2014 for their trip during June 2014

      We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Everything was very modern and updated. Tile floors, Granite countertops, fresh paint, etc.. Cindy the owner was fantastic and very informative about the area. This would have easily been a 5-Star Review if not for 2 small things. First, the bed in the 2nd bedroom was extremely hard and uncomfortable. Second, the TV's in both the Master Bedroom and Spare Bedroom were very small and hard to watch. The TV in the living area, however, was great. I would recommend this place to anyone and will check here first next time we visit Galveston!

      Owner Response: Brandon, Thank you for your kind words and review! I am so happy to hear you had a great time. I will get a new matrice so to be a 5* . Ha. Seriously I appreciate your call about facet and honestly about your stay! Hope you come back and visit soon!
