A 2 minute walk will take you to Nate's West End Restaurant for a great burger and a fully stocked grocery store is only next door! Pick up some steak or seafood for a fabulous grill at our charcoal BBQ grill.

About Yolanda

My husband and were enjoying sharing our beach home and condo (Docs Quarters at the Beach and Docs Quarters at the Seawall) when the beach home next door came up for sale. We decided to purchase the beach home which is next door to our 3 bedroom; 3 full bathroom beach home (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 House in 2010

Why Yolanda chose Galveston Island

Our beach is close to Jamaica beach ( Karankawa Beach) not crowded and is a location 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 House unique

A unique benefit of renting our home is its phenomenal location. It is far enough from town to have the small town feeling but close enough to enjoy Galveston and all its attractions. Our guests LOVE the proximity to the beach as well as the proximity to a well stocked grocery store and Nates Restaurant. We are only 10 miles from the Seawall, which is also a big PLUS!

                                                  My cousins and I had the opportunity to spend a few days at the beach and were fortunate enough to stay at this wonderful property.The unit was well stocked, clean and the perfect layout for us! Yolanda was very easy to work with and provided the perfect directions to the unit. The views were wonderful, and hearing those soothing waves was magical. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it. Oh, and if you go, try Nate's West End restaurant, right next door. The food is great and the service is spot on!
