    • Great family vacation!

      Reviewed by Kaycee H. from Parker, CO

      We brought our four kids ages 5 and 8 to the beach for the first time. We stayed at Yolanda's and were really comfortable. The unit is very close to everything you could need and we didn't have to travel too far for entertainment. The views from the condo are amazing. We had breakfast every morning on the terrace and were lulled to sleep by the waves everynight. The unit has everything you need and was like home away from home.

      Owner Response: Thank you for the great review! I am glad the childrens first beach experience was memorable and you all enjoyed the fantastic ocean view!

    • I can't wait to come back!

      Reviewed by Aram from Arlington, Texas

      The condo was absolutely beautiful, even more breathtaking than the pictures. The view of the ocean from the balcony was spectacular. All of the local hot spots were within walking distance (every tourist's dream). I will definitely be back for another stay :) If you're looking for an amazing temporary home away from home, look no further!

      Owner Response: Thank you for taking the time to post a review! I am very glad you found the condo to be close to all the attractions! And the amenities very favorable.:)

    • We loved this condo!

      Reviewed by Vivian M.

      We absolutely loved this condo and had a great time during our visit to Galveston. The unit is beautifully furnished and maintained. There was plenty of room for our family, 4 adults and a toddler. We enjoyed our walk to the beach each day and the view of the ocean made sitting on the balcony a pleasure. It's located close to groceries which is a big plus. Thanks Yolanda, we hope to come back again sometime!

      Owner Response: Thank you for taking the time to post a lovely review and I am glad that you enjoyed all the amenities! Especially the nearness of the condo to the BEACH! The view of the Ocean is a delight!

      We really enjoyed our stay here. The entire condo was spacious, modern and well maintained. We have stayed at many places on the island and your condo was by far the nicest place I have ever stayed. There were six adults who were in our party and we were all very comfortable. The view from the patio is breathtaking and I cannot say enough nice things about it! Thank you for making our vacation so spectacular! We will recommend you to all of our friends!

      Owner Response: Thank you! Doc and I try very hard to make this condo a fantastic stay and the best stay in Galveston! :)

      This Condo is even more beautiful than the pictures. FABULOUS decor throughout and the balcony view was great, very spacious rooms and HUGE closets and master bath. We had 7 ladies for a girls getaway weekend and had PLENTY of room. The kitchen is absolutely stunning and is equipped with every thing you need. Beds were very comfortable and the grounds and pools are beautiful. We will definitely come back! Thank you for sharing your beautiful Condo with us.

      Owner Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review and most important, I am glad you all had a fabulous ladies get-away!

      Owner Response: Hi Phil, Thank you for your great review on our beach condo! Doc and I are especially pleased that you and your family had a great time and found our condo and complex luxurious and very spacious!

    • Doc's Quarters

      Reviewed by Kay K.

      This is the first time we've ever rented traveling accommodations so were cautiously optimistic & our review is written with that in mind for any other "potential" first timer . With that being said from our initial contact with Yolanda to arrival at Doc's Quarters we were quite pleased with the smooth process - from making our deposit to arriving at the 3rd floor condo complex which is surrounded by a security gate. As the photos show you will find them to be as they are photographed. We inspected the unit upon arrival & our only reason to contact Yolanda was to let her know the patio door handle was broken. You will find this unit to be equipped with comfortable beds & nice linens; kitchen stocked with numerous utensils for cooking, dishwasher, coffee maker and a few items even in the pantry. An added benefit was having a washer & dryer which we found even more beneficial when we got back home as we didn't have but a few items to wash at home. :) All we had to do was cross the street to walk along the seawall which was wonderful. Ideally located near by are grocery stores (Walmart & Kroger), Valero gas station is on the same block, fishing pier about a 5-10 minute walk, and numerous eating establishments can be found all along the seawall. We enjoyed our time so much on the beaches we didn't go to Moody Gardens, but do want to suggest if you want to visit NASA plan on making it a full day especially if you have children. We would not hesitate to rent this unit again if we should go to Galveston. Perhaps our 6 yr old granddaughter said it best "bye condo I hope we rent you again". It was her very first trip away from home with "grandma & bestefar (grandpa in Danish)" so to have her reach the conclusion she did should come as the highest recommendation!

      Owner Response: Thank you so much for writing a review for future guests contemplating a stay at Docs Quarters @ the Dawn! Doc and I get such a wonderful feeling when we recieve reviews such as yours! It makes the hard work on our part worth every bit. I certainly hope your granddaughter has a reason to visit us again!

      Our stay was nice. A couple of things....only one tv posed problems with 6 guests. Also with 6 guests there was not enough toilet paper. Also per the house rules we were to wash sheets and there was no laundry soap. We had not planned to need to do laundry ourselves. With that being said it was a beautiful place and convenient to everything. The king bed was fabulous.

      Owner Response: Hi Kim, Our housekeeping service leaves one roll per bathroom and in the guest information sheet sent to all our guests, we request our guests to bring extra paper. We also suggest our guests start the laundry if they bring laundry soap. We are not able to provide sufficient laundry soap for our guests.

    • This Condo is Fabulous!

      We have stayed at The Dawn before and enjoy the location on the Seawall and view from the front row units. This Unit is the best we have every been lucky enough to rent and we will never stay anywhere else! The kitchen is completely outfitted, and some items I brought were redundant....the condo already had them! I was able to entertain my college roommate & her husband and it was as easy as being at home! The furnishings are comfortable, tasteful and give the condo just the right feel. There is a full size washer & dryer! We could have brought half the amount of clothes as we did - most units have the tiny stack washers which won't keep up with two teenagers! The owner is very nice and helpful...we added a day and she worked with me to get it all done efficiently. Again...I am never staying anywhere else! I have already recommended this unit to two friends but I am concerned I won't be able to get back in when I want! The family groused a little because they had to carry the bags up two flights of stairs (3rd floor unit) until they walked in...one look at the view and the home and I never heard another complaining word out of them. Thank you Yolanda for letting us enjoy your and Docs great condo! We will be back!

      Owner Response: Thank you Lana! Doc and I felt great when we read your review and it definitely makes all the effort we put into providing the best condo for relaxation and fun on the island. Thank you also for the great pictures taken from the balcony, I will be posting some of them soon.

      We really enjoyed our stay at Doc's Quarters. The condo was amazing and it is so convenient to everything. When we arrived my husband kinda complained about the stairs but when we walked in all he did was smile. Nice view and the furnishings are nice. Very spacious and plenty of room for my family of 4. Yolanda was very easy to work with and always reponded promptly. I will definitly stay there again!! I always wanted a vacation home, now I have one:)

      Owner Response: Thank you again for choosing Docs Quarters @ the Dawn! The 2 flights of stairs are a curse but the view is a real blessing!! Thank you for liking our beach condo and we hope that you will consider it your beach condo away from home!

      WOW! This condo is wonderful! This was our second stay in Doc's Quarters at the Dawn and we will keep coming back. Great view of the ocean from the balcony and master bedroom. Close to everything. Sleeps 6 or 7 comfortably.Beds are very comfy! Have had a few young children both times we stayed and it worked great with them too.....the condo is very child proof, and some toys and games are provided as well :) Very spacious condo,unlike other condos and hotels we've stayed at that are just tiny! Kitchen is fully equipped with anything you would need to bake or cook while visiting. The grounds are very well kept and the pools are sooo nice! Plus the condo isn't too pricy when accommodating that many people,you'd be paying the same price or more to sleep 6 or 7 in 2 hotel rooms.....I know,we've done it! Have spoken to Yolanda many times making arrangements and asking her questions and she is always easy to deal with,easy to contact,answers all your questions and just all in all very pleasant and makes you feel welcome! Overall everything gets 5 stars from us and we will keep coming back,thanks Yolanda and Doc for providing such a great place to vacation!

      We spent the weekend in Galveston and were very pleased with this condo. Clean is really important to us, and the condo was spotless! Beds were very comfy. Bathrooms were clean and modern. We didn't cook (there are plenty of great places to eat in Galveston!), but the kitchen looked well equiped. The condo balcony looked directly out over Galveston bay - fantastic veiw! We really liked the location - right on the seawall, close to everything but down the seawall just a bit so that things were a bit quieter. We would stay here again!

      Owner Response: Thank you Tim for a fantastic review! Its true our housekeeper goes the extra mile to make sure the condo is very clean for our guests.

    • Great place to stay and view the ocean

      Reviewed by TL from Kansas City

      We stayed at the Dawn condo for about a month while I was receiving a new oral chemo drug at M D Anderson CC. It was "just what the doctor ordered". Made it feel like a vacation rather than a hospital stay. The owner was great and the conso is very nice. The view was calming. Only one caveat, on second floor with no elevator so if infirmed or a breathless person you need a first floor condo.

      Owner Response: Thank you Tom for the great review! Doc and I are glad that your stay at our condo made your treatments at MDAnderson tolerable. I have to agree, the ocean view is fantastic! I am always amazed that no matter what time of the day or month, the ocean view from the condo is spectacular!

      Reviewed by Julie C. from Montgomery County, TX

      We stayed at this condo for 4 days...and didn't want to leave!!! The condo is very modern, clean, and was comfortably suited for the 6 of us. With a full size fridge, washer & dryer, plenty of towels, beach chairs for your use, you won't be disappointed! The master bedroom and bath were amazing...and the sound of the waves and view of the gulf from the master bedroom was absolutely soothing. The patio was spacious, and view of the ocean was stunning. The owners were a pleasure to deal with, and readily available if you have any questions. Walmart is right next door, so very convenient if you forget something at home. All in all, we had an awesome vacation and have bragged about this unit to everyone back home and you will continue to be highly recommended! We can't wait to vacation again in Galveston, and when we do, we will surely be looking to stay here again!

      The condo was great. The bed in the guest room is a small double but 2 adults made it work. The master is fabulous! And, we had 2 kids on the pull out couch. Very convenient location for our trip. The seawall isn't beach at that area so if you are looking for sand (we were not) you will have to walk or drive. The view was great, the road a little noisy. The pool was very nice. We would definitely rent this condo again!

      Owner Response: Hi Melissa, Thank you for your review! We have replaced the double bed with a fabulous queen size bed with a luxurious mattress. We left the twin size mattress in the closet. The seawall road can get a little noisy when the patio doors are left open but the ocean view from the balcony is fantastic! I have heavy drapes in the bedroom to block out the noise. and only receive raves on the comfortable posterpedic mattress in the master bedroom! I am very glad to know that you will definitely visit us again!

      The condo was even prettier in person than it was in the listing photos. Ideally situated across from the Sea Wall and easy to reach Moody Gardens from, it was in the perfect place for all the activities on our list of things we wanted to do. The beds were super comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with cooking pans, bakeware, and utensils so we could eat in just as easily as going out. It was a great place to stay and we will be back again next year...if we don't buy our own unit in the complex ;)

    • Best condo rental we've ever had.

      Reviewed by Jim W. from Allen, TX

      Extremely neat and clean. Great view & location. 3rd floor with only stairs was a little rough for a couple of our vacationers, & the 1st I remember seeing 3rd floor was after we paid & received the confirmation. I know the owners can't help the no-elevator situation, but a heads up would've been nice, since the other couple with us had difficulty on the stairs. Everything worked as it should & we'd definitely return. I know you shouldn't be on your laptop or tablet during vacation, but with the way everyone does it, a reliable internet would be welcome. The service thru the Dawn condo assoc. is terrible. We had 2 iPads & a PC tablet & even when we could get online, we'd always lose our connection. Especially bad when you had to pay for it, separately. Still, a great stay!!!!

      Owner Response: Thank you for letting us know you would definitely stay at our beach condo and found our high-end amenities to your liking! Being on the 3rd floor, is a curse and a blessing! The curse is having to walk up the 2 flights of stairs and the blessing is a view "like no other!". The view of the moon as it glowed and glistened on the ocean water this weekend was phenomenal, I hope you enjoyed it! I never realized you didn't know it was on the 3rd floor. The reason I purchased the condo was its view of the ocean from the 3rd floor and not the street level. Thanks again for taking the time to post a great review and I'm glad you would come again!

    • Beautiful, peaceful, amazing condo!

      The condo is a very lovely place to stay for a getaway at Galveston. I really enjoyed the layout and how you have your own room. We were unable to swim at the pool due to the weather but the pool is beautiful. The kids loved the condo and I love how a high chair was already provided. Very beautiful kitchen and bathrooms. Amazing ocean view from the balcony.

      Owner Response: Thank you! Thank you! For a great review! Your right the OCEAN VIEW from the balcony is awesome! We hope to have you stay again!

      Reviewed by Denise M. from Mansfield, Texas

      The property was very well taken care of. Great location! Great view! Being on the third floor was difficult but we would go out for the day and then come back in the evening so we weren't constantly going up and down the stairs. There was plenty of towels and found everything we needed in the kitchen to cook dinner each night. We would definitely come back to this condo!

      Owner Response: Hi Denise, Thank you for the 5 star review!! :) The 2 flights of stairs can be difficult if you are not use to climbing stairs. But you have to agree, the ocean view is FANTASTIC from the 3rd floor! We hope you return for your next girls weekend.

    • We Will Make This An Annual Retreat!

      This is a treasure for sure. We have stayed here in the past and made it a point to come back. You couldn't have a better view of the ocean from the deck. It was very calming just sitting on the deck and enjoying the view of the Seawall. The inside of the condo is super comfortable with most of the conveniences of home. It was also nice to bring back leftovers from the restaurants and enjoy them for lunch the next day. I was impressed with the train museum. The area where it is located had many shops to explore. A Great place for a getaway!

      We found this condo on such short notice and we were highly surprised at such amazing customer service from the owner! She was the nicest person to deal with! That in itself was a huge plus! Once we arrived at the condo, we were pleasantly surprised at all of the amenities that were provided. Super clean and very comfortable. The pool was amazing and our kids begged to stay longer! This is definitely one of the best condos we've ever stayed in! The only downfall was the third level climb with a handicap 10 year old! However, everything worked out and we would come here time and time again!!! We highly recommend this condo. The view of the ocean is spectacular! Worth every penny! Thank you for making us feel so at home!

    • Anniversary Weekend

      Hubby and I celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary weekend here, and our 14-year old daughter spent the weekend with us as well. Condo layout was perfect. Great family weekend with lots to do and see. We visited the exact spot in the lobby of The Tremont House where he proposed, and our daughter thought that was really cool. Only thing that was an issue was the three-story climb up the stairs. If you have knee problems (I do), this is a challenge. That said, the view was worth the climb. I would recommend this location (close to everything), and the owners are pleasant, lovely people.

      Owner Response: Thank you for the lovely review! Anniversary celebrations are a must especially at our condo with its amazing, romantic ocean view. The 2 flight climb can be a challenge for guests who have knee issues.

      Yolanda and Doc's condo is gorgeous! Beautifully decorated and fresh and clean! Even better, it is wonderfully comfortable, from the bed mattresses, soft sheets and fluffy pillows to every need and amenity in the kitchen...they thought of everything! All appliances were in great shape and worked perfectly, including a nice washer and dryer. We didn't need them, but we noted a charming junior bed, a nice play pen and high chair stowed in the spacious walk-in closets, which would be great if you had little ones along. LOVED having coffee overlooking the beach each morning! My two teens and young adult daughter and I made great use of both pools. They were nicely landscaped, lovely and heavenly! The condo was very convenient to grocery and other shopping as needed. Beach combing for shells and hermit crabs, kite flying, skim boarding and reading novels with our feet in the sea were just what we needed! But we also enjoyed shopping the strand, touring the Moody Mansion, and feeding the gulls on the free ferry ride to Bolivar...and I did see a dolphin! We also included the Rain Forest Cafe river ride (for the memories... a tradition since the kids were very little...still fun.) The one and only caveat to this condo would be if the approx. 19 stair steps needed to get up to the condo would be too strenuous for you. At 56 and out of shape, I just counted this as part of an exercise routine I badly needed. But when my daughter sprained her ankle doing somersaults on the beach, the stairs were a challenge that day. Regardless, we would return in a heart beat and will recommend to our friends. Loved it!

      Owner Response: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! for taking the time to tell other about our beautiful condo by the sea. I am so glad you got to see the dolphin from the balcony! It is an amazing sight to see. The 2 flights of stairs can be a challenge if your not used to using stairs. Otherwise, the view is worth it! Thank you for the star review!

      We were here over New Year's 2016. Beautiful facility; well kept and well equipped. The little "pluses" in the already well-equipped condo made it that much nicer; pail and shovel for kids to play in the sand, beach towels, a beach chair, etc.... The view from the balcony is absolutely gorgeous - terrific place to sit and have coffee in the morning! The condo is in a fantastic location; the beach is right across the street, Wal Mart is within walking distance, several nice restaurants are a few minutes away and Moody Gardens (recommended!) is less than 10 minutes. Galveston State Park is 15 minutes away. Downtown Galveston (The Strand) and the cruise terminals are also only 10-15 minutes away with lots of neat shops. The only downside is that the street in front of the condo is very busy and the crosswalk lights weren't working when we were there so you had to dodge traffic to get to the beach.

      Owner Response: Thank you for the lovely review and 5 stars!! Doc and I are so pleased you enjoyed your Christmas holiday stay and more importantly our condo! The traffic on the street in front of the condo can get busy and the city is currently repaving the street leading into the condo complex which is an eyesore at best but by this Spring it should look beautiful again! God bless and keep us in mind for another great stay!

    • The condo location was nice for us. It is well kept.

      Had a great time in Galveston on the seawall. We had rented from Doc and Yolanda before at their properties on west beach They had their property very well decorated as we have come to expect. Everything about the condo was first class! Having the beach across the street was fantastic and very convenient. Look forward to our next visit with two classy owners!

    • Easter Morning at the Beach!!!

      Reviewed by Jackie M. from Leesville la

      This home was wonderful!! We loved waking up to have breakfast on the balcony and watch the gulf waves play. It was perfect that we could just walk across the street and check out the beach and walk right back to our condo. The house had everything we needed and more. The kids loved the priate ship bed and spent the evening in there talking about their daily adventure. Thank you again for sharing Docs place with us!!!

      Owner Response: Thank you for the lovely review!! I'm glad you and your family found the condo and easy access to the beach enjoyable and love it as much as we do!

      Reviewed by Valerie L.

      My family and I stayed at Docs Quarters and had one of the best vacations ever. I have two sons, 25 and 20. Last time we all had gotten together for a family vacation was about 4 years ago. I have not seen everyone laugh so much without a care in the world. The condo made it so that everyone had their own space and after supper each night we would all go out to the balcony and relax and talk. My son stated that this condo was better than the cabin in TN we had rented several years ago, and it even had a hot tub. The décor and all of the "little" touches were wonderful. Thank you for letting us stay at your condo.

      Owner Response: Thank you Valerie for one of the best reviews ever! We enjoyed being host to you and your family. Sharing our beach condo really makes it a joy when we hear the wonderful comments!

    • Beautiful and Comfortable!

      Reviewed by S. D.

      Enjoyed a 3 night stay for my birthday with family. The condo is beautiful and decorated very nicely and the beds and pillows are very comfortable! The view from the balcony is amazing and the patio furniture is perfect. You cannot get a better view. The beach just across the street is so easily accessible and not as crowded as other areas. We have stayed at The Dawn Condos for numerous years in various units and have always enjoyed the beautiful pools, and grounds and quietness of the complex. It is so convenient to be located next to Walmart and a Valero store, literally within walking distance. Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn are minutes away from complex. The owner, Ms Yolanda, is very nice and provides a quick response when contacted. Check in information is provided in detail prior to arrival and makes check in and out very easy and effortless. We very much enjoyed our stay and would definitely return to Docs Quarters again!

      Owner Response: Thank you for the most gracious review! You have made my day. We do try and provide the perfect place to stay!

    • A GREAT TRIP The most comfortable place, beautiful

      Reviewed by Shari M.

      The most comfortable place/condo we have ever rented. The master bed was so wonderful, I’d like to know what kind of mattress it is. The place was welcoming, comfortable where we all relaxed and enjoyed and early vacation. Thank you so much for letting us rent. The only issue was that someone broke into my daughter’s finance’s car. The gate was working at the time. Make sure you don’t leave any valuables in the car. Lived in TX for 6 years and the running joke is if you haven’t been broken into in some way, you’re not a Texan. Things just happen. GREAT PLACE LOVE IT and hope to come back.

      Owner Response: Thank you for the lovely review! We’re so pleased the condo was as described and better. I sincerely apologize for the theft that occurred in your daughter’s fiancé ‘s car. It’s unfortunate that it happened in our complex. I will bring it to the attention of the management team in hopes that they will consider having a curtesy officer or security cameras installed. Thanks again. Yolanda

      Reviewed by Erma W.

      This was a great condo with a wonderful view of the beach! It’s right on the Seawall. It’s clean and has everything we needed for a great weekend get away for me and my girlfriends. The hideabed in the living room is really uncomfortable. There is a master bedroom with a king bed with a nice bathroom and great shower. There is a second bedroom with a queen bed. There is a bathroom across the hall from this bedroom. The master bedroom has a great walk in closet with a kids bed in the closet. Overall this is a great condo for a small family or very small group.

      Owner Response: Hi Erma, Thank you for the 5 star review! We greatly appreciate it and thank you for letting our guest know about the great view of the ocean and beach from the balcony! I understand that sofa beds are not the best in the world and although the mattress is new I suppose it doesn't give the comfort of a high end mattress.

    • Best View on the Island!

      Reviewed by Richard S.

      I can’t reiterate enough how perfect the view is from this condo! It’s like a front row seat to the Gulf! You should wake up early like we did and view the sunrise! Location can’t be beat.. you can even walk to Walmart! We found the unit decorated beautifully. Couches and beds comfortable and decorated so nicely! Everything was in working order and fully stocked. Yolanda a dear to lease from! She dealt with all my questions and concerns with kindness and patience! She even helped with putting captions on the tv for me because I’m hearing impaired! I would like to recommend driving to Sea Isle Pier past Jamaica Beach and see the sunset! It can’t be beat there’s even a bench facing where it sets and rocks to sit on! GPS will take you through a subdivision to get to it easily. Only caution with this unit I must say are the stairs. It can be quite a hike up and down if you are not fit. We loved it here and would definitely return!

      We had a very nice stay at your condo. They only issue we had was the air conditioning would only go down to 70. Your instructions said we could turn down to 68. We got a little warm at night, but not too bad. Your condo was in a great location. We would definitely come back to stay. Loved the amenities left by others or your self. Kept us from having to buy sugar and coffee filters.

      Owner Response: Hi Cathy, Thank you for your lovely review! I had our AC technician check out my condo thinking it might be low on freon but he found that the thermostat itself had an issue with regards to maintaining accurate settings and that was fixed. Thanks for the heads up! We hope you visit us again!

    • Decor, amenities and condition of the condo were wonderful!

      Reviewed by Christina S.

      This was a very nicely appointed condo and you could tell it had been professionally decorated and renovated. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because of the really loud traffic noise due to the condo being right next to a signal light. Of course the owner has no control over that or the thin windows on the unit, so if that kind of thing doesn't happen to bother you then it is a perfect place to stay!

      Owner Response: Hi Christina, Thank you for the lovely review! I’m really sorry about the traffic noise on the Seawall. Sadly, A downside of being beach and ocean front. I hope you keep us in your list of favorites!
