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 townhome in 2008

Why Yolanda chose Gulf Coast

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 townhome unique

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

Wonderful Property and Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Doc's Quarters. The layout is fantastic with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The balconies both have great views of the water and it is a short walk to the beach. The beach was very quiet on the days we were able to visit, we had it almost to ourselves. The Seven Seas store next door is very well stocked and allowed us to avoid a visit to the grocery store. We'd love to stay here again.

We loved this beach home! Just a short walk to the beach, we played there often with our sand toys and some of the many kept in the shed. The outdoor shower was WARM which made our after beach wash off pleasant. The kitchen was well stocked with supplies to cook. The decks were fantastic too! The beds were comfy with everything we needed to sleep well throughout our stay. There was so much room for everyone in our party! Every morning I opened the window across from the kitchen and cooked with an excellent view of the beach complete with a beautiful sunrise! We would absolutely recommend this property and will revisit at our earliest opportunity! The owner, Yolanda, who I communicated with, was very kind, accommodating and prompt in responding to any questions throughout the entire process! It is further down the island, but we enjoyed the uncluttered privacy of the beach enough that the short occasional drives to town were well worth staying at this fantastic beach townhome!

Owner's Response: Hi Jill, Thank you for the lovely review of our beach property! It's true the approximately 20 minute drive into town is worth the commute drive to have the almost private beach located by Jamaica Beach. Thank you again for choosing our spacious beach home!

Doc's House was our house for a week during our soring break. We had a family of 5 sleep (and live) very comfortably. The sounds of the ocean can be heard while enjoying a morning cup of coffee. The almost private beach is within walking distance. The house is cozy and very clean. Thank you for opening up your house to us for our much needed break from my life and family bonding! Hope to be back next year.

What a wonderful place we stayed in this year on our annual trip to Galveston, roomy, well stocked and a nice layout, close to the beach that was very private. I cannot say enough good things we will make this our home each time we travel to Galveston.

We are so happy we found Docs Quarters @ The Beach for our weekend getaway! Everything is as described. Plenty of room and great location. Beach is close & within walking distance. Small grocery story very close. Kitchen well stocked! Three bathrooms were great! The separation of living & kitchen from bedrooms is nice when some want to sleep late. Love the balconies and the views. Yolanda was quick to respond to our initial inquiry and all questions after. Definitely enjoyed our stay and hope to come again for a longer stay!

Thanks for sharing your home.
