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 Texas Gulf Coast

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. We are also 1 mile from the Galveston Convention Center!

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 needed to bring the outside ocean 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!

Relaxing beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

Clean, perfect location, beautiful ocean views. The beach just across the street was just what we hoped for. We enjoyed the beautiful pools and hot tub. Would definitely stay there again.

Reviving AND Relaxing...just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Yolanda and Doc's condo is gorgeous! Beautifully decorated and fresh and clean! Even better, it is wonderfully comfortable, from the bed mattresses, soft sheets and fluffy pillows to every need and amenity in the kitchen...they thought of everything! All appliances were in great shape and worked perfectly, including a nice washer and dryer. We didn't need them, but we noted a charming junior bed, a nice play pen and high chair stowed in the spacious walk-in closets, which would be great if you had little ones along. LOVED having coffee overlooking the beach each morning! My two teens and young adult daughter and I made great use of both pools. They were nicely landscaped, lovely and heavenly! The condo was very convenient to grocery and other shopping as needed. Beach combing for shells and hermit crabs, kite flying, skim boarding and reading novels with our feet in the sea were just what we needed! But we also enjoyed shopping the strand, touring the Moody Mansion, and feeding the gulls on the free ferry ride to Bolivar...and I did see a dolphin! We also included the Rain Forest Cafe river ride (for the memories... a tradition since the kids were very little...still fun.) The one and only caveat to this condo would be if the approx. 19 stair steps needed to get up to the condo would be too strenuous for you. At 56 and out of shape, I just counted this as part of an exercise routine I badly needed. But when my daughter sprained her ankle doing somersaults on the beach, the stairs were a challenge that day. Regardless, we would return in a heart beat and will recommend to our friends. Loved it!

Owner's Response: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! for taking the time to tell other about our beautiful condo by the sea. I am so glad you got to see the dolphin from the balcony! It is an amazing sight to see. The 2 flights of stairs can be a challenge if your not used to using stairs. Otherwise, the view is worth it! Thank you for the star review!

Nice and spacious getaway!!! Thanks for keeping it available for us, we enjoyed our comfortable stay. The stairs were a challenge with groceries and heat but gave us a nice little workout on the positive side. The hot tub was wonderful at night. Thanks for opening up your home for rental.

Wonderful family getaway

My family and I had a wonderful stay here. The condo was fully equipped, even with beach toys and a boogie board. The pools were great and we loved being able to see the ocean from the balcony. We definitely would go back!!

Doc's Quarters

  • 3 of 5

This condo was very spacious and did have a good ocean view. One problem was having to walk up 3 flights of stairs to get to the condo. There is no elevator. The condo was also not very clean when we arrived. There was food and other crumbs left under the beds and furniture. I did enjoy the area. My one problem was that there was damage to an area in the condo when we arrived and we were then accused of causing the damage and I was asked to call and give out my credit card number over the phone to pay for the damage I did not make.

Owner's Response: Hi Holly, I'm sorry that you are angry with me because I mentioned and send you a picture of the large tear to the seating part of our leather chair. I requested a minor charge for the damage to the chair with me taking the major brunt of the cost for the chair replacement. There is no way, the housekeeping service would have missed the large and obvious tear to the seating part of the chair prior to your stay as you claim. Never the less, as mentioned in my email. I will not force you to cover the cost of the replacement for the chair. I leave it up to your conscience.
