About Yolanda

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 house in 2008

Why Yolanda chose Galveston Island

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!

What makes this house unique

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

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great. Area was nice. Plenty of room indoors and outdoors. Beach is super closeby and blocked off to vehicles which made it even better. Will definetely come back on vacation again.

Very nice & quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time to rent this unit and we love it. It is very clean and well kept. It is a short walk to the beach and is kid friendly. Yolanda is very helpful and we look forward to renting again the next time that we come to Galveston.

Great views of the beach with a short block walk to the beach and to a neighborhood grocery store

  • 5 of 5

Great townhouse with excellent views of the beach from nearly all of the rooms and decks and a block walk to get there down a non-traffic path which was great for our young grandkids. Yolanda provided plenty of outside beach toys for the kiddos to enjoy also. The outdoor swing was a big hit with all of us.The house was nice and big enough for the 6 of us to have plenty of room to be comfortable with the 3 bedrooms, great room and seating on 2 decks and on the floor level. The Seven Seas grocery and meat market was a half a block away for all of the items needed for cooking. Thank you, Yolanda, for helping us make some very special memories.
