              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: 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 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, 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!

              The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
              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! It is about 15 miles from the main attractions.
