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 home town culture! We enjoy walking along the seawall and beach especially early mornings and late evenings - watching the sun rise and the moon's radiant glow on the waves. We also enjoy sitting on the balcony, drinking coffee, eating breakfast and watching the ocean waves and hearing the water from the fountain at the swimming pool. These experience can be very romantic!

Sitting at the balcony in the shade feeling the gulf breeze and looking down at the swimming pool and watching your older kids having a great time at the pool is a great feeling!

Yolanda purchased this condo in 2009

Our condo unit makes for a great getaway while staying on the island. It has beautiful landscaping and the condominiums are splashed with tropical Caribbean colors. I especially enjoy the location and proximity to Schlitterbahn Water Park (1 mile), the mini golf course, the Galveston Convention Center and Moody Gardens. This makes the condominium ideal for summer fun!

The balcony is a wonderful place to relax and plan out your daily itinerary! You can listen to the sounds of the seagulls, the ocean waves or hear the water fountain at the swimming pool. Watching the water along the seawall is absolutely superb! Sunbathe at the condominium’s one of two swimming pools or go to the public beach along the seawall and feel the sand between your toes!

Some guests take their early walk or jog along the seawall while enjoying the sea air and listening to the ocean waves. Exercising can't get any better than that!

The condo's proximity and the convenience to Galveston's main attractions is ideal! Check it out!. . .you and your children will not be disappointed with this beach condo!

PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
You will get everything you see in the pictures plus more!!!! Beautifully decorated as if you were in the summer edition of a Pottery Barn Magazine!!! They had so many extras not usually found in a vacation rental and everything was of high quality!!! Both pools are close to all buildings so it was really easy to go to either one! Grills were great! mattresses comfortable!! They had lots of sand and water toys in a closet that really saved us an expense!! Just loved this place and cant wait to return next summer!

Family friendly!

  • 5 of 5
The condo was a great space for our family of five, with room to house even more if needed. All the details and amenities needed for a family from far away were accounted for and provided, from spices for food, to sand toys for kids! Only drawback was that we paid for wifi Internet that as not fast enough to stream. I would recommend bringing your own hot spot if you need internet.The space was clean and well kept with a great location. We had a blast.

Owner's Response: Thank you Ben for your great review of our condo!! I am very sorry about the internet being slow. That company is suppose to be putting in faster cables but I don't know when that will happen. If you are used to fast streaming internet to move backwards in time can be a challenge.

We arrived to a clean and roomy place. The view was fantastic and both pools in the condo were well utilized by us. The beach was inundated by seaweed and could not be enjoyed, but the kids forgot soon with all the things to do. We went swimming the first night after we ate at Rainforest Café which is just a few blocks away and has its own irrupting volcano. We spent all day at the Schlitterbahn Waterpark the next day, again just a few blocks away. The next day we went to the strand and the kids enjoyed the train museum and we met some friends who joined us back at the condo to swim and I used the grill right by the pool to BBQ. Great experience and relaxing. Wish we could have stayed longer. The condo had everything we needed. The master bed was really comfortable, wish we could have brought it home. A few things to know. The second bedroom gets hot so leave the curtains shut and they have a fan in the room, the cable box for the main tv would lose signal, but I did figure out that if u pull the cord out of the back of the box just a hair it worked fine. Not that you are going to watch much TV for all the things to do, but I would recommend a new Comcast digital converter box and reprogramming the remote. the condo was very quiet and the convenience of the pushbutton entry was awesome. (definitely take the time to program your own code, makes it so much easier.) Our family would like to thank Yolanda for letting us enjoy the condo and your attention to detail made it feel close to home as you can get. PS the girls said they would move in if we could :).

Owner's Response: Hi Russ,
Thank you for the lovely review! It was our pleasure to host your family at our Galveston condo, "Docs Quarters @ the Seawall" and we are so pleased that the amenities and ocean view were fantastic!
Thanks for the suggestion on the converter box, I have changed it out twice and finally spoke with other owners and it seems to be a problem with the Infinity cable provider for our little community.
We do hope to have you and the family back for your next vacation or just to "get away"!

Great condo

We really enjoyed our stay in you beautifully decorated condo. The location was great, and our boys really enjoyed the bunk beds. We really appreciated the decor and how well-equipped the condo was. You had everything we needed to make it our home away from home!

Beautiful Condo - Great Location

  • 5 of 5
The condo owner Yolanda is very pleasant to work with. The condo is very nicely appointed. It's furnishings are nicer than my own home! It was lovely sitting on the balcony and viewing the ocean and one of the two large pools. This was a perfect spot for our GALveSton Getaway. I heartily recommend!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay could not have been more perfect! The condo is absolutely beautiful and the grounds of the complex are impeccable, the best I've ever seen in Galveston. The balcony provides a stunning view of the ocean and we were thrilled by that aspect and spent a lot of time on the large balcony. The condo was perfect for our girl's weekend (we had 5 in our party) and we enjoyed it immensely. The kitchen items and extra bedding items far exceeded any other vrbo I've every stayed in and the washer and dryer was an added bonus that we didn't realize we would have. We will definitely be booking with Yolonda again, hopefully in the very near future.

PS The only downside is that the condo is on the 3rd floor, so if you have health issues or are elderly, that could pose a problem. We just looked at it as our workouts so we could drink more cocktails. :~)
