GALVESTON VACATION RENTAL WITH 5 STAR GUEST REVIEWS since 2009 - CLOSE TO ALL GALVESTON ATTRACTIONS! Beautiful BEACH across the street; one mile from Moody Gardens and the Galveston Convention Center

Surround yourself with lavish decor and start your island experience at our condo!

Sitting on the balcony drinking your morning coffee or just enjoying the ocean view with your favorite drink in hand and watching the seagulls overhead can be delightful! 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! Our condo is an access to the beautiful sandy beach across the street!

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

The water trickling in the fountain from the swimming pool below while relaxing on the balcony watching the ocean waves and beach 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 weights. Our swimming pools are open year round.

This condo is super spacious with its 1,116 sq. feet of living space with 2 private bedrooms, a large entertainment area, separate dining space and a kitchen with full size stainless steel appliances; 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! Children love our condo; very child friendly!

You can workout at the fitness center then dive into the swimming pool to finish out your workout! OR (my favorite) 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 splashing and laughing while waving to you at the shaded balcony above!

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!

You will find high quality furnishings and great amenities! Our goal is to provide the best luxurious Galveston condo stay such that you will want to tell your friends and other family members! We have guests who return every year and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else! Read our many guest reviews!

Our condo has a king size bed with an attached bathroom in the master bedroom. The second bedroom has queen and twin beds. 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!

Docs Quarters vacation rentals have you in mind!

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 with lushious landscaping. You will surely enjoy your Galveston stay and make wonderful family memories!!

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 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 experiences 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 children having a great time at the pool is a great feeling!

Yolanda purchased this condo in 2009

Why Yolanda chose 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!

By the way we also have a heated spa and fitness center to keep you in shape while eating the fantastic food while in Galveston!

What makes this condo unique

Our balcony is a wonderful place to relax and plan 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 beach and water at the seawall is absolutely superb! Sunbathe at the condominium’s one of two swimming pools or go to the public beach across the street 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!

Bring the grandkids

  • 5 of 5

Queen bed, twin bed and toddler bed in same room was perfect. High chair at kitchen table, playpen style crib in master bedroom with king bed. Walk to Wal-Mart McDonalds to pick up breakfast. Easy walking path to safe street crossing to the beach.

Only suggestion is to put a rectangular table with a bench against the wall in place of the round glass top kitchen table. This would enlarge the walkway from the kitchen to the den.

Will come again!

For the area, the price, and the quality, I do not think we could of found a better location for our stay in galveston. The weather was beautiful, the condo was very spacious and accommodating, as well as clean. Yolanda made everything very easy to understand. We will be certain to return again one day!

Well maintained and just enough space.

  • 5 of 5

This unit was perfect for a mother-daughter weekend getaway. There was plenty of sleeping space for 4, the bathrooms are very spacious, and the kitchen had everything we needed. There are lots of coffee filters from previous guests, so don't buy any before you come!
