We have lived along the Texas Gulf Coast for over 25 years. We have seen Galveston grow into an exciting and beautiful resort city with a small home town culture! We enjoy walking along the beach especially early mornings and late evenings - watching the sun rise and the moon's radiant glow on the waves.

Yolanda purchased this townhome in 2008

We found the location great being that it is just a few steps from the beach!! The area is quiet and has a small town atmosphere. The grocery story next door is great for just purchasing ice cream or picking up steaks!

Very private and close to the beach! A great, clean beach!

Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5
Clean and comfortable home. It's a very short walk to the beach, and you can easily see the ocean from the upstairs living area. We stayed here with family during our trip to Galveston and we were very happy with this property.

Weather (not in your control) was poor, but we had a nice visit. Property slightly dated. Would be great for a family with kids.

Owner's Response: I am sure sorry the weather did not cooperate and you were not able to enjoy our fantastic beach! I am glad you all had a great visit with each other at our home. We do try to exceed expectations, since this review, we have brought in 2 new recliners and new dining room chairs. We have also put in a new bedspread in the master bedroom to modernize the condo! Thank you for taking the time to post a review!

Family Vacation / Ironman

  • 5 of 5
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.

Perfect 4 Day Get-A-AWay

  • 5 of 5
This beach home was perfect to celebrate a 30th birthday! We (4 couples) had more than enough room for comfort! The home is exactly how Yolanda describes it and easy to locate. We literally only needed to bring food and clothes! I can't wait to find a reason to to rent this home again!

Enjoyed this home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a few days of our Spring Break vacation at Docs Quarters! We absolutely loved this rental! We had lots of space to relax and everyone had a comfortable bed! We even cooked a big family dinner and sat all together around the table. This home is decorated perfectly for its location. It was just a few steps from a beautiful beach.
The storage area downstairs had beach chairs, sand toys, and water toys for the kids. It was so nice to have everything we needed without having to pack it all!

We will most definitely return for our next family vacation but hopefully stay longer!

Nice Touches

  • 4 of 5
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.
