About Yolanda

My husband and I have enjoyed sharing our other beach home and condos (Docs Quarters at the Beach, Docs Quarters at the Seawall and Docs Quarters at the Dawn). We decided to purchase this beach home which is next door to Docs Quarters at the Beach. We found many families with a desire to stay close to the beach and enjoy the relaxation that only a beach can offer! We also wanted to provide vacationers, with multiple family members, the option of sharing the same beach but still having the privacy of being in separate quarters.

Yolanda purchased this townhome in 2010

Why Yolanda chose Galveston

Our beach is close to Jamaica beach is not crowded and is a location liked and well known by frequent island guest renters. We also enjoy this location, it is secluded but close enough (10 miles to the seawall) to all of the island happenings!

What makes this townhome unique

Great location, far enough from town (approximately 15 miles) to have the small town feeling but close enough to enjoy Galveston and all its attractions!

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at Docs Quarters very much! The location was perfect and the beach was so close by. No major streets to cross and it was very quiet compared to public beaches in the area. The condo was super cute and had plenty room for 8 people. It was also well stocked and most importantly, it was clean. We had an overall great time and will definitely be back.
We also recommend the little restaurant right next door called Nate's. The food was delicious and our waitress was very attentive. The shrimp linguini was out of this world...
Yolanda, the owner, was very responsive and caring. So, if you are looking for a quiet getaway close to the beach, this would definitely be it! Birgit, Dan and Family

Owner's Response: Thank you, thank you for taking the time to submit a guest review! I'm glad our "home by the sea" was everything you were looking for during your Galveston stay. The location is a favorite for many of our guests in part to the quiet beach, Nate's Restaurant and the fully stocked grocery store next door. We definitely hope you keep us in your list of favorites!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
Loved our stay. The house felt like home and was very clean and upkept. The best part was waking up in the morning and hearing the waves crashing. Plenty of room and the house is fully stocked with dishes and other cooking utensils.

We did not experience any sea weed issues like the some of the other reviews said. The beach was clean and the best part was that it was not crowed.

The beach is about a five minute walk from the house(two roads of houses but you dont have to cross any major road to get to it), but try to avoid the house if there rain in the forecast because the roads leading to the beach from the house flood very easily.

With that being said I would highly recommend this house. I would definitely stay here in a heart beat.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the 5 star review! We try and maintain the home with all the accessories you would find in your own home to make your stay more like, "home away from home"! And you're so right, the best part is waking up to the ocean waves crashing on the beach! :-)

We hope to have you back soon for another Galveston stay! A 2 night weekend is not long enough to see and do everything Galveston has to offer.

Wonderful beach rental for a family!! Loved it!

  • 5 of 5
This beach house was perfect for our family. We went with kids and grandparents and everyone of all ages had a blast! Location was great being so close to a private (no driving allowed) beach. It kept all the craziness and crowds away. The store being so close was also a huge plus. The furnishings and decor were perfect. Also, the owners were available by text any time I had a question. Yolanda was so sweet and thorough. We plan to head back to Galveston next year for an end of summer get away and we will most definitely be staying in one of Doc and Yolanda's properties. They know how to make people feel welcome and really seem to have everything figured out as far as guest comfort and needs. Thanks for an affordable and great weekend vacation!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely guest review! The home's location and nearness to the beach is fantastic and great for families with small children! Having a fully stocked grocery store next door is ideal in case you forgot to buy the bread and milk. :-)

It was our pleasure to be host to your family and we hope to have you back again for your next years vacation stay!

Lovely

  • 5 of 5
We were very pleased with how lovely and well stocked the house was. The decks except for one day were wonderful to spend time on. The only thing that kept us from the decks on one day were the mosquitos that got stirred up by something and coated the sliding doors. They weren't there before that day and when we got up the next day they were gone. Having wifi was great so we could communicate with family members and send them pictures on the trip. The beach had seaweed, but the area dedicated to the beach homes had minimal amounts compared to the parts of the beach to either side. We had fun beachcombing. Found it thoughtful that so much info was provided on what there was to do and places to go eat in Galveston. This was the first vacation that my daughters and I have taken together in years. I have two grown daughters and a pre-teen and the opportunities to vacation together are rare. Thank you for making this a comfortable and fun vacation for us!

Disappointed with Beach

  • 3 of 5
The townhome was wonderful. Fully loaded with beach chairs, toys, towels, even spices. We did bring our own supplies just in case but was surprised to find it all there. Our only disappointment was the beach. It was loaded with seaweed!! It looked like they would bulldoze it up on the beach daily but approximately 4-5 feet of seaweed would still come in. It made it impossible to reach the water. The seaweed also caused a bad smell and lots of flies and bugs. This was my daughters first trip to the beach and we were all excited to build sandcastles and play in the water. All we ended up doing was getting bit up from all the bugs despite the amount of bug spray we used. It was a major letdown. Here we were emailing about possible tar from the March oil spill. Never thought to ask about seaweed. I did do a search on the internet to find that this is a bad year for seaweed and apparently it started in mid-May. Yes there is tons of stuff to do in Galveston but it makes it hard when your heart is set on going to the beach. We ended up leaving after 2 nights. Again, the house was lovely and the evenings on the balcony were delightful.

Owner's Response: Thank you Kathleen for your guest review. I was so disappointed to get dinged 2 stars due to the seaweed on the beach but very glad that you also provided information to potential guests that the beach home itself is fantastic, has great balconies and amenities! I agree, this year, the seaweed has been atrocious. Unfortunately, Mother Nature has not taken a liking to Galveston this year! Thank you again for your review!

Very nice place!

  • 4 of 5
Great place to stay. Comfy and homey. Really liked the fact it is a minute's walk from the beach and gas station/grocery store. Great patio too.
Did not have a grill that we could find though.

Owner's Response: Hi Ganesh,

I'm sorry you did not find the BBQ grill! I wish I had known. It is locked in the storage room and the key should have been in the hallway as mentioned in the guest document. I'm glad you found the location convenient to not only the beach, but the local restaurant, gas station and grocery store! We hope that you visit us again soon!
