Property description

GALVESTON VACATION RENTAL WITH 5 STAR GUEST REVIEWS since 2009 - CLOSE TO ALL GALVESTON ATTRACTIONS!

Excited to be in Galveston? Surround yourself with lavish decor and start your island experience at our condo!

I can attest to the fact that sitting on the balcony drinking your morning coffee and watching the seagulls overhead and listening to the ocean waves and feeling the great gulf breeze is PARADISE when you're stressed and overworked!

Plan to start your day sitting on the balcony watching the luminous sun come up!

The magic of a fun VACATION or GET-A-WAY will start here!

The water trickling in the fountain from the swimming pool below while relaxing on the balcony watching the ocean waves will enhance your sense of relaxation and provide for an awesome island experience!

Our condo is in a gated community surrounded by lush tropical landscaping, 2 resort style pools, 1 spa tub, and a full gym with elliptical equipment and free weights. Our swimming pools are not heated but are open year round. With our lovely weather, heated pools are not a necessity.

This condo is super spacious with its 1,116 sq. feet, definitely NOT tiny like other condos found on the island

If you and your family want plenty of personal space during your island stay, then this condo is the one for you! Our condo is set up to provide a fantastic vacation or get-away in a relaxed, luxurious environment far different from the sterile, cramped space of an efficiency hotel or motel!


You can workout at the fitness center then dive into the swimming pool to finish out your workout! OR (my favorites) take your margarita or cooler to the swimming pool and relax with a great book and begin your gorgeous suntan. Older adults can sit at the balcony above and watch the children (young and younger) splash and laugh while waving to you at the balcony!

The large 50 inch flat screen TV will be a welcome in the evening as you and your family watch your favorite movies, munch on popcorn and catch up on family happenings!

You will feel like you are in a tropical resort and close to paradise! This beach condo is luxurious inside and the landscaping outside is fabulous!

The condo kitchen is modern with its stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops and you will find high quality furnishings and great amenities!

You will NOT easily forget this vacation or this beach condo!

We have guests who return every year and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else! Read our reviews!

Our condo has a king size bed with an attached bathroom in the master bedroom. The second bedroom has bunk beds with a double on the bottom and a twin on top. We try and furnish this condo to be perfect for families with small children!

We have a toddler bed in the spacious closet, a Pack N Play and highchair. We also keep children classic videos in the second bedroom with a TV just for the kiddos to keep them entertained while you cook their favorite meal (mac and cheese).

If all that is not enough, we also have for your convenience a full size dryer and washer inside the condo!

Enjoy your vacation or just a get-away in a relaxing, spacious and luxurious environment!

NO TINY CONDO HERE!

The 2 spacious bedrooms with 2 full bathrooms are perfect for a family of seven!

When you come to Galveston, stay at Docs Quarters at the Seawall; experience a great ocean view, clean pools and luscious landscaping. You will surely enjoy your Galveston stay and make wonderful family memories!!

VISIT OUR OTHER LISTINGS: [HomeAway# 914321 (VRBO # 363708) (condo is in the same complex)] or [HomeAway# 973827 (VRBO #171473)]; 3 Bdrm; 3 full BR; beach home)] or [HomeAway#973830 (VRBO #300295) ;2 Bdrm; 3 full BR beach home)] both beach homes located 10 miles from the seawall on the west end of the island near Jamaica Beach. The two beach homes are only a 2 minute walk to the beach with AMAZING ocean views.

LOOKING FOR A SMALLER SPACE with an UNOBSTRUCTIVE OCEAN VIEW TO SPEND 24/7 HOURS OF INTIMATE MOMENTS TOGETHER WITH YOUR LOVER? Then our ONE BEDROOM condo [HomeAway #913735 (VRBO #913735ha)] listing will be PERFECT! Check it out!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: 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. The Strand is also a favorite hangout; touring the shops and enjoying a refreshing drink while watching the children laughing and having a fabulous time! 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 the older kids having a great time at the pool is a great feeling!

Why the Owner Chose Dawn Galveston:
Our condo makes for a great Galveston getaway! The complex 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 located at the Seawall, the Galveston Convention Center and Moody Gardens (1 mile). This makes the condominium ideal for year round fun!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our 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. Sitting at the balcony and 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 and family will not be disappointed with this beach condo!
