Imagine your Galveston get-a-way sitting at our balcony, drinking your favorite beverage, eating your meal or appetizer and watching the ocean surf, hearing the seagulls and feeling the island experience in the air!

The amenities and decor are phenomenal! The 2 large bedrooms with 2 full bathrooms are perfect for a family of seven! The master bathroom has granite counter tops, double sinks (only found in a select few) and a spacious glass enclosed shower!

When your surroundings are beautiful and you're sleeping in a high end posterpedic mattress you will wake up refreshed and energized ready to enjoy your island stay!

Our condo is in a gated community surrounded by lush tropical landscaping, 2 resort style pools, heated spa tub, and a full gym with elliptical equipment and free weights.

You can workout at the fitness center and dive into the swimming pool to finish out your workout or take your margarita to the swimming pool and relax with a great book and begin your gorgeous suntan.

The large 54 inch flat screen TV will be a welcome in the evening as you relax and laugh over the day's events with your loved ones! Or just sit at the balcony and watch the ocean waves and listen to the seagulls!

A smaller flat screen TV is located in the second bedroom if you prefer to watch your favorite cooking or sports channel while reclining and relaxing on the bed!

You will absolutely feel like you are in a tropical paradise and you don't have to travel to the Caribbean!

About Yolanda

I am a retired nursing professor who taught at San Jacinto Community college for 32 years. I currently work part time as a home health nurse for Coram Health Care.

I enjoy interacting with people and I find that renting my beach homes/condos still gives me that opportunity!

I grew up in Victoria, Texas, graduated from Victoria High School, attended Victoria Community College for one year and then received my bachelor's degree in Nursing from Dominician College in Houston, Texas. I have a Master’s Degree in Science (University of Houston; Clear Lake Campus) and a Master’s Degree in Nursing from the University of Texas Health Science Center.

I currently live in La Porte, TX by the ocean that I love so much!

Yolanda purchased this condo in 2011

Why Yolanda chose Galveston

Our condo is close to all the attractions, One mile from Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn and has 2 great swimming pools, a heated spa and even a fitness center! There are community BBQ grills near the swimming pool areas.

The management has a full time person to make sure the grounds are nicely kept and the swimming pools are ready year round.

Our guests who have stayed at our condos always want to return, CAN'T SAY ANYTHING BETTER THAN THAT!

What makes this condo unique

The ocean view from the entertainment room and the bedroom are AMAZING and the spacious double sinks with the large, modern glass enclosed shower in the master bathroom are unique and not easily found in other condos!

I have traveled extensively and stayed in many expensive hotels and resorts and this condo's ocean view and location is among the best! I only felt that I needed to bring the beauty inside which is proven by my guest reviews!

I can't say enough about the great location - Schlitterbahn Water Park, Moody Gardens and the Galveston Convention Center are only 1 mile away.

AND the Strand Historic District for shopping is only 4 miles away!

Very conveniently located! We strive to provide superior furnishings to make your stay a resort experience!

Review of Doc.'s Quarters at the Dawn

  • 5 of 5

It's a lovely condo, nicely decorated, clean and well maintained. It fronts the seawall and has a great view of the ocean. We felt very welcomed and were very comfortable while staying there. In my phone conversations with the owner, she was hospitable, helpful, gracious and provided good information about local attractions. Restaurants and shops were within easy walking distance. Galveston is an interesting city with a fascinating history. We would definitely recommend this condo for everyone, except those who have a mobility problem (3rd floor, no elevator)

Anniversary Weekend

  • 4 of 5

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's 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.
