      We came for the weekend with another family. A total of 4 adults and 4 children (all under 7). The property is very accommodating to children. Food store very close and convenient. Beach access very convenient. Property is clean, quaint, and appropriate for all ages. We enjoyed the various options for entertaining. (2 deck patios, kitchen/living room, multiple bedrooms).

      Owner Response: Thank you so much for your lovely guest review! We couldn't ask for a better 5 star review! We hope you'll keep us in mind for the upcoming holidays!

      Owner Response: Sorry about the stairs, that's a downside for only being a 2 minute walk to the beach. You have to admit that hearing the ocean from the balcony makes the stairs worthwhile!

      Reviewed by Jessica W. on May 03, 2017 for their trip during April 2017

      We had a great stay at Doc's Quarters. The layout is fantastic with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The balconies both have great views of the water and it is a short walk to the beach. The beach was very quiet on the days we were able to visit, we had it almost to ourselves. The Seven Seas store next door is very well stocked and allowed us to avoid a visit to the grocery store. We'd love to stay here again.

      Owner Response: Thank you for the lovely review!! You've made my day!

      Reviewed by Jill K. on April 12, 2017 for their trip during April 2017

      We loved this beach home! Just a short walk to the beach, we played there often with our sand toys and some of the many kept in the shed. The outdoor shower was WARM which made our after beach wash off pleasant. The kitchen was well stocked with supplies to cook. The decks were fantastic too! The beds were comfy with everything we needed to sleep well throughout our stay. There was so much room for everyone in our party! Every morning I opened the window across from the kitchen and cooked with an excellent view of the beach complete with a beautiful sunrise! We would absolutely recommend this property and will revisit at our earliest opportunity! The owner, Yolanda, who I communicated with, was very kind, accommodating and prompt in responding to any questions throughout the entire process! It is further down the island, but we enjoyed the uncluttered privacy of the beach enough that the short occasional drives to town were well worth staying at this fantastic beach townhome!

      Owner Response: Hi Jill, Thank you for the lovely review of our beach property! It's true the approximately 20 minute drive into town is worth the commute drive to have the almost private beach located by Jamaica Beach. Thank you again for choosing our spacious beach home!

      Doc's House was our house for a week during our soring break. We had a family of 5 sleep (and live) very comfortably. The sounds of the ocean can be heard while enjoying a morning cup of coffee. The almost private beach is within walking distance. The house is cozy and very clean. Thank you for opening up your house to us for our much needed break from my life and family bonding! Hope to be back next year.

Small grocery story very close. Kitchen well stocked! Three bathrooms were great! The separation of living & kitchen from bedrooms is nice when some want to sleep late. Love the balconies and the views. Yolanda was quick to respond to our initial inquiry and all questions after. Definitely enjoyed our stay and hope to come again for a longer stay!

      We recently stayed at this townhome for a 3 night Thanksgiving trip. It was plenty of room for two families. What I liked best is the cleanliness and overall room of the townhouse. It was an easy walk to the beach. I was concerned about view being 3 row but it was very nice. I loved having my morning coffee on the balcony. I would stay again and recommend highly. Yolanda was wonderful to work with as well.

      We really enjoyed our stay here at Doc's Quarters! The home felt very inviting and everything we needed was there and ready to go. The property was very clean and the beds were comfortable. We had plenty of room for all 7 of us. The beach is just a few minutes walk away and it is amazing! We enjoyed being able to just get up and go without having to get in the car to drive to the beach. It was kind of hard to hear the waves while sitting on the porch due to the air conditioners around you running but when they stopped long enough for you to hear it, it was beautiful! The kitchen was nicely stocked, clean towels were provided and we were very grateful to have the washer and dryer available. The outdoor areas were wonderful, as well, and we liked having the swing to sit and watch the waves. Thank you, Yolanda, for opening your home to us! We loved it and really enjoyed our time there! We would not hesitate to stay again if we should return to Galveston!

      Owner Response: Thank you for the lovely comments on your guest review! I enjoyed seeing the kids having a great time at the beach! Eating their lunch at the outdoor table and just having wonderful family time! That is what life is all about!! We hope to have you and your family back next year.

    • Perfect Balance of Proximity, Location, Amenities

      Reviewed by Michael G. on July 23, 2015 for their trip during July 2015

      First off, the booking process was made very easy by Yolanda. She was very easy to contact, answered her phone every time and was more than willing to help answer any questions while providing informative answers for each. Location in my opinion is great! Far enough south of the seawall to where you are away from all the heavier traffic while still only a mere 10-15 min drive at most to get back to everything. Being south of the seawall also gave great access to some very nice beach as opposed to up by the seawall where the beach was much smaller and more crowded. The walk to the beach was a minute or two at most (can see beach from townhouse windows, balconies, etc). The walk to the Seven Seas Market was even closer (about 50 yards north). This comes in handy say if you happen to drop a bag of groceries while unloading your car and break a jar or your favorite pasta sauce for dinner that night...strictly hypothetical. We found the townhouse well furnished, well kept and perfect for what we were needing. With three bedrooms and three full bathrooms, there was plenty of space for us (2 couples, each with a toddler in tow). All the details of this place are what took it to a 5 for me: baby gate for stairs already there...big +, close proximity to everything (beach, food, entertainment, etc), Yolanda (owner), outside shower, space, and much more. To prove how service-oriented Yolanda is, the coffee pot stopped working the first morning we were there and she brought a new one out that same afternoon! Lots of little touches that made this a very special and memorable vacation for our families. I would highly recommend this home and hope to come back to visit ourselves in the near future. Thank you, Yolanda!

      Owner Response: Hi Michael, I enjoyed meeting you and your family and was pleased that you found everything (amenities, location and grocery store) needed for a fantastic vacation! Thank you for taking the time to put a wonderful review and taking the time to compliment me on my promptness in getting a new coffee pot to you. I know how important that early morning coffee is! We hope to have you back soon!

      As a Grammie, I was looking for a comfortable, relaxing place to spend time with my granddaughters, ages 4yrs and 20mo. This was an excellent choice! The townhome was clean, nicely decorated, safe, and close to the beach! We enjoyed being able to eat some meals in a clean well-stocked kitchen. We were excited to collect shells, walk on the beach, build sand castles, experience waves, and play in the water. We also went on a ferry ride, caught & released crabs, and they enjoyed the family outdoor shower!! After they were tucked into bed, it was nice to sit out on the upper patio listening to the waves and gazing at all the stars. Highly recommend this property!

      Owner Response: Thank you for the 5 star review and letting our guests know the home is great for the kids during the day and the adults at night! The ocean sound and wind thru your hair is amazing in the evenings! Hope to have you and the grand kids back soon!

      We found the cute townhome to be charming and plenty of room for our 3 families, 6 adults and 2 young children to enjoy! It was a quick walk to the beach where we played the day away and strolled the shoreline in the evening hours too.

Would definitely recommend this place!

      Reviewed by Anonymous from Dallas area, Texas on March 19, 2015 for their trip during March 2015

      Our family of 6 recently stayed here for a weekend. I grew up in Houston so Galveston is very nostalgic for me. Sadly, it rained most of the time but we were still able to take the Bolivar Ferry, visit LaKing's and the Strand, the Aquarium at Moody Gardens, and treat ourselves to a nice dinner at Willie G's. We even managed a couple short strolls on the beach in between rain showers. My little girls found plenty of shells to take home. We had no problems with this rental house. Everything was as explained. The decor in the house is completely charming. You can tell this owner takes pride in this rental. No Wi-Fi problems at all and it was clean with plenty of towels. The sleeping arrangements worked out perfect for our family. Our oldest teen got his own room while our younger teen slept on the top bunk and his little sisters shared the full below. We found the corner grocery store very convenient. If I had known it was going to rain, I would have preferred to stay closer to town (we only went to the Aquarium because of the rain), but I think on a sunny trip this house would be perfect because the beach would not be crowded. We made the best of it with movies and board games that we had brought with us. I would stay here again. My kids loved it.

      Owner Response: Thank you Carrie for the lovely review! I wish I could have done something to prevent the rain. We will hope to see you and your family again!

      Very comfortable, inviting place. Nice to have bedrooms on lower level - quiet. Kids enjoyed the bunk beds. Also, great to have 3 bathrooms. Clean, everything you need in kitchen. Attractive decorations. Quiet beach, close by. Owner very responsive and helpful. She quickly returned all email or phone calls. Only negative: fold-out bed in living room was not comfortable (like most foldouts!). Would highly recommend.

      Owner Response: Thank you for the 5 star review! We try very hard to have the best accommodations possible! We bought a new sofa mattress about 3 weeks ago but unfortunately, your right, they don't provide the sleeping comfort of a regular mattress.

      We (My wife & I with 3 kids ages 6, 8 & 10) had a great time staying here. We went down so that I could participate in the Ironman 70.3 race and there was a great view of the bike course from the front. It is very close to the beach via a short walking trail. There are a couple of good restaurants very close and it is a short drive to the historical part of the island. It was very relaxing to open the windows and hear the ocean. We ate out about half of the time that we were there due to my schedule, but the kitchen is well equiped to eat in for all meals. The property is accurately described and was very well maintained. The owner was very helpful in providing directions to the property and information about the area. We would recommend this property to friends and would stay here again.

      Reviewed by Sasha W. on February 13, 2014 for their trip during February 2014

      Doc's is a condo on the West End, about 15 minutes from the Seawall area and The Strand, both of which we visited easily. We enjoy the West End, as it a quiet respite from interior Galveston. We had initially rented the property due to its proximity to the beach, but it was too cold and rainy to be able to make the short trek to the waves, which were indeed visible from both decks. It would be great in warmer weather. As it was unseasonably cold and rainy when we arrived, we were thankful for a warm home. The downstairs had three bedrooms and two bathrooms, more than enough space for three people. The rooms were decorated with nice touches, including a turtle lamp and a neat pineapple fan. I enjoyed being able to take a quick shower under a nozzle at a decent height, with a full spray. That may sound trivial, but having stayed in properties where we had to hunch under a drippy faucet, it's the little things we appreciate. Upstairs, the living room was welcoming with a couch and chairs and a bigscreen TV. We did not cook or eat there, but it was large enough to if you so desired. I have had too many poor experiences with unclean hotels to ever return to one, so we were happy that Doc's was clean and maintained. It was not a generic hotel room, and we appreciated the attention to detail in decor. The property is only a few minutes from the West End Restaurant, where my son enjoyed being able to shoot pool and play the jukebox downstairs, as well as enjoy a Coke and a burger. Both nights, the high winds did shake the walls, but I imagine that happened to all area properties as well. We were able to enjoy a few nice meals in Galveston, but the best part of the trip was simply sitting on that couch, watching America's Funniest Videos with my son and husband and laughing together. We would recommend it to other visitors.

      Owner Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to post a great review! And providing information for potential guests thinking about rentiing our beach home! We hope you visit us when the weather is much better! We had an unusually cold front come thru during your time at Docs Quarters @ the Beach, I would have changed that if I could!

The pictures do not do it justice. Yolanda was so wonderful to work with. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a beautiful escape. We had plenty of room for everyone to have a place of their own. The kitchen was well equipped, we even cooked a Christmas meal. Wonderful!! The property was very clean and the convenience store nearby had a lot to offer. We hope to stay here again very soon!

      Owner Response: Thank you very much for the fantastic review! I am equally pleased that you and your family made some wonderful memories. Your mom's birthday will be one she will always remember! :)

      Our family really enjoyed this wonderful beach house! We gathered here this year to do something "different" than the usual. My moms one request was that she wanted to not only hear but also see the water...the views from the top balcony were amazing! We were even able to take family pictures on the beach (we have an amateur photographer in the family but the pics look like a professional took them because of the beautiful water....yes I said beautiful water..in GALVESTON!!). It was a great time of year to enjoy the island..no crowds, cool weather, Festival of Lights.. This beachhouse has a very private beach and is very quiet. The owners really have thought of everything you could possibly need for an island getaway. Thanks Doc and Yolanda for sharing your little piece of Galveston paradise!

      Owner Response: Thank you! I am so pleased that you were able to take some great pictures, I have been wanting to do the same with my family but haven't gotten around to it. We do need to capture those great memories!

    • Kansas Girls That Dont Want To Go Home

      Reviewed by Anonymous from Wichita, Ks on September 23, 2011 for their trip during September 2011

      Vacation Stay 09/11/2011 - 09/18/11 What can i say? This is the first time i have ever went on a vacation. A REAL VACATION, not just visiting relatives. It was 4 couples that stayed in this beautiful home. What was best about this trip? The spot we chose has got to be at the top of the list. Ms. Yolanda was ever so helpful!! So if you have never rented a beachhome before I must say pick Doc's Quarters!! That is what i did!! And I will never regret my choice. She made everything go by so smoothly! Very informative about any question or concern you may have. She even covered things that I wouldn't have even asked. "2 minute walk to the beach" is very true! But if you're like me, one who has never stepped on the beach, the more accurate would be a 30 second run to the beach!! It was so quiet and relaxing it was nice to have a place to ourselves, and a Beach to OURSELVES! My friends and I had the most amazing time. We made very memorable memories here, ones that i will cherish and carry forever. Thank you Doc and Yolanda for being a part of my first horseride on a beach; my first crab chasing night, my first saltwater taste **yuckkl LOL!**, my first touch of sand beach which i must say is like powdered sugar compared to our rocks and sticks back home. The first time i seen a wave, not made by a boat passing in a lake, but an actual wave! I know they are minor details, but I made memories here and it was made possible by letting us stay in your truly magnificent home. I plan to have a vacation such as this one once or twice a year and We most defitnately will be returning to Doc's Quarters, of course if you'l have us again. :) Thanks again Truly <3 Nely, Ribella

      Owner Response: Thank you! Doc and I enjoyed sharing our beach home and Galveston with some Kansas Girls! :)

      I'm in a quandary; I don't know what's better about Doc's Quarters: the relaxing decor, the beautiful view, the proximity to the beach (105 steps, I counted! :), the home being equipped with So many extras that make its' guest stay even more fun (great radio and other electronics and apppliances,kitchen contents,furnishings being so comfortable and pretty, beach chairs, and umbrella, and more to enjoy the actual beach with, and oh!..that porch swing downstairs as the sun sets..Relax 101!), or the nice "neighborhood' feeling of the community of homes and condos here..or the Owners?! Yolanda and Doc are friendly, helpful, and really great to work with; communication on everything was the best, and it is clear they Care about your positive experience at any one of their Galveston properties. We had a girl's getaway for 5 days, and really enjoed the great patios, walks on the beach, going into town to the Sunflower Bakery and Cafe for breakfast, and shopping on the Strand. Another day, we began with a stroll on the beach, coffee mugs in hand, to witness the gorgeous sunrise, and also went to The Spot on the seawall for Greek salads and drinks, sitting at the open-air tables in the bar there. We kept asking ourselves "Is this Really Galveston?!"; as the water was clear, there was no seaweed, and the water color was gorgeous! Staying at Doc's Quarters just added even more to this great vacation. (tip: the icemaker works well, but grab a bag of ice at the Sonic on your way to the condo, after you turn right on 61st street, it is on your left in front of the WalMart..this is the Best ice for relaxing beverages on the patio!) The WiFi set up is excellent in speed and security, and I was able to do some work from the upper balcony in the morning. (work: a 4 letter word..but if I must do it, I have to say at Doc's Quarters,even work was relaxing!) I have to say there isn't one thing that could be added to this rental to make it better..it's the Best already! Rent with confidence that you will enjoy your time here! Thank you again, Doc and Yolanda.

      Owner Response: Thank you for the lovely review! It is our pleasure to provide a relaxing get-a-way beach home for all ages!

      Your home away from home! The home was very well maintained and had everything we needed. The directions to the property were excellent! Alot of nearby activites and great restaurants. I especially enjoyed the uncrowded beach, my family and I built sandcastles and found some really beautiful seashells. I would defintely recommend this to all of my families and friends. I enjoyed the stay so much that we are going to make it our annual family event, when we need to get away, have some fun and reconnect! The owner was very helpful and polite. I really enjoyed the way the home is decorated and how the owners put alot of thought into making the occasion really special for me and my family by thinking about things we would need during our stay like kitchen utensils, towels and a great movie seletion for the children... they were right, we sure did.

      Owner Response: Valerie, Thank you for your time to post a wonderful review. It really makes us feel good to know that our guests enjoyed their stay at Docs Quarters! :)

It's very roomy, comfortable, has almost everything you need except food. We girls had a great time.

      Yolanda was extremely courteous and prompt in my communications with her when booking this condo. Once we arrived we realized the pictures don't come close to showing what a wonderful place this is; it's in a fantastic location, the views were amazing, it just felt like a home away from home. Loved that the beach was so close, it's so much easier to walk a minute or two to a beach with little ones rather than having to load them up and drive to a beach. Would definitely recommend this for anyone who's looking for a nice place with great beach access and ocean views.

      My family and I stayed at Doc's on beach from May 31-April 10, 2010 and we had a great time. The House set up is ideal with 3 BR's and 3 Baths. The video library is great for night time relaxing after a long day on the beach, or there is a Redbox at Velero Gas Station just a few block up the road. Seven Seas Grocery Store was very accomodating for groceries, but we chose to use Super Walmart as our pre vacation stop to get a better value on groceries (Only 15 min. away). A fresh fish market (5 min. away), was very helpful in recommending different ways to prepare fresh fish. The beach was so nice with most days less than a handful of people to see either direction of beach front. Sand castles and shelling passed much of our time. Finally, a great miniature golf course (near Walmart) brought our family some more fun times together. Thank you again Yolanda and Doc for sharing your treasure on GI, we would love to come back again!!

      Owner Response: Thank you for the great review! Doc and I are very pleased that you had a great time at our beach house. You will be pleased to know that a new miniature golf course is being constructed with a Pirates theme in our neighborhood practically across the street.
