Karankawa townhome description

The beach home is 2 minutes from one of the best kept beaches on Galveston Island!

You are a 2 minute walk to Nate's West End Restaurant for a great burger and a fully stocked grocery store! Pick up some steak or seafood for a fabulous grill.

You can walk from the beach to the grocery store for a cold scoop of ice cream!

Sun bathe at the beach and walk back for a cold beer or ice tea, and easily return to your sunbathing or you can surf the waves, build sand castles and come back and grill (or have someone else grill) some steaks or seafood!

Many options are available for a grand vacation stay!

You will not be disappointed! Your children will love spending hours playing on the beach with the beach toys provided and you will enjoy the proximity of the beach to all conveniences offered at the home!

                        We were so pleased with our rental last month. Doc and Yolanda were so nice and available if we needed them. Pictures really didn't do justice the the town home. It was beautiful! Spotlessly clean..The furnishings and decor were classy all the way. very unique. We look forward to next time. We really liked the Jamaica Beach area. Not as congested as Galveston. We had everything we needed within a short walk. That little grocery next door was awesome. I'm a picky shopper and we were both impressed. We enjoyed site seeing, the beach and the fresh air. We have to have longer to stay next time to be able to do and see more.

                        Owner response: Thank you very much for choosing our beach home to get-a-way and relax! We are delighted that you had a fantastic time and hope that you come back for some more fishing!

                        We loved staying at this home, it was in a great location being 2 minutes from the beach and 10 from the sea wall. I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a place to get away to for a few days. I will definitely be using it again :)

                        Owner response: Thank you for the 5 star review! We are happy you and your family enjoyed our beach home and its closeness to all that Galveston has to offer! The location is fantastic with a well stocked grocery store just next door!

                        It’s a great place on the beach. Far enough from the main beaches on Seawall and close to all attractions in Galveston. The house is very cozy and well-arranged inside. Everything was ready for our arrival exactly as it was described and discussed. Both floors has 2 spacious balconies – great places for morning and after dawn hours. Kitchen is well equipped, all appliances working and all rooms and bathrooms have beautiful sea-themed decorations. We had a wonderful time and will recommend this place to all our friends. Thank you, Yolanda for staying in touch during our stay and your quick replies by e-mails!

                        Owner response: Thank you for the 5 stars, we are very pleased that you and your family had a fantastic time at the beach!! We try very hard to provide a relaxing get-a-way from the everyday stress filled living. It is very relaxing to just sit at the balcony with a great drink in the evening listening to the ocean waves and feeling the ocean breeze on your face!

                        Loved the location, the easy access to the beach, how private and clean the beach was. Loved being located on the quieter end of the island. It's a cozy place. Well stocked with the key things for your stay, like beach chairs, kitchen items, TV/DVD/WiFi. The one negative would be the mattress in the main bedroom was way too soft, and the mattress and the mattress cover of the foldout couch upstairs is all stained/gross. Had to spray for ants in the kitchen if there were any crumbs on the counter. Thank you for your professional way you book, and your responsiveness to our electrical concern!

                        Owner response: Thank you for the positive aspects of our beach home! I was disappointed to read about the mattress and cover condition located on the sleeper sofa on this review. I depend on my housekeeper and guests to call or send me an email to let me know any issues or deficiencies so they can be corrected as quickly as possible! Immediately (after reading your review), I notified the housekeeping service and she was able to immediately clean and wash the mattress cover. I will also be doing a home inspection as soon as possible. The mattress at the master bedroom is a high quality, posterpedic mattress and I have received great feedback on the sleeping comfort. I do understand that everyone has their own mattress preference. Sorry we were not able to meet your mattress needs.

                        The listing description and pics are very accurate (no surprises). The condo was spacious enough for my family of 6. Having 3 full bathrooms is a bonus with all the girls. Jamaica Beach is a great location in Galveston. It's far enough out of town for some peace but walking distance from a great little grocery store that has everything you need as well as good restaurants and sports rentals etc. It's a 15 min drive into town where we enjoyed higher end restaurants, Schlitterbahn, and the amusement park at Pleasure Peir (very fun). Beach access from this condo is very convenient and I was pleasantly surprised by the beach assessories that are provided in the condo (umbrellas, chairs, grills, boogie boards, etc.). I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family. We had a great time.

                        Owner response: Thank you for the great review! Doc and I are very glad that you found our beach home a great surprise and exactly what was needed for a great vacation stay!

                        Spent the long weekend with the family at Doc's Quarters Karankawa. I like being away from the crowded touristy area and this place was great. 11 miles west of the busy Seawall area of Galveston, but not lacking for any conveniences. As noted in the description there is a well stocked grocery store next door to the condo. We walked to the store, and there are restaurants nearby. Easy access to the beach. A quick drive in the car and we were in the heart of the action in Galveston which made the rest of the family happy. The owner, Yolanda, is very easy to work with. The unit was clean and well furnished. Comfy bed in the master. Lots of beach decor made this unit special from others we have rented. I will recommend this place to family and friends.

                        Owner response: Thank you for the 5 star rating and for recommending us to your friends and family! Doc and I are very pleased that you had the relaxing get-a-way that you were wanting! You are right, our beach location is a real gem! Far enough from the city to have the beach coastal home feel but yet close enough to drive into the city for the great city shopping and eating!

                        My family of four stayed at this beautiful condo just steps away from the beach! We really enjoyed listening to the ocean and watching the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Convenience store and restaurant just next door were a plus! Thank you to Yolanda who was so very helpful and made the renting of her unit so easy! We hope to rent here again!

                        Owner response: Hi Monica, Thank you for sharing your experience at our beach home with your family! The Ocean view and sounds are indeed fantastic and we are glad you all had a fantastic time! We really enjoy sharing our beach home or might I say our "little piece of beach heaven"!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: 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.

                      Why the Owner Chose Karankawa:
                      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!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                      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!
