About the property

Fantastic guest reviews!

This lovely Galveston vacation home rental close to Jamaica Beach is a 2 minute walk to the beach! A quick 15 - 20 minute drive will take you to Moody Gardens!

You will have a GREAT time sitting at the balcony watching the ocean waves and hearing the seagulls overhead! This spacious 2 bedroom; 3 full bathrooms Galveston beach is ideal for your family!

A 2 minute walk will take you to Nate's West End Restaurant for a great burger and a fully stocked grocery store is only next door! Pick up some steak or seafood for a fabulous grill at our charcoal BBQ grill.

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

Sun bathe at the beach and walk back to the home for a cold beer or ice tea, and easily return to your sunbathing.

You can also surf the waves, build sand castles with the kids and come back and grill (or have someone else grill) some steaks or seafood!

Many options are available for a grand family vacation stay! No major street to cross to get to the Beach!

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 and all conveniences offered at the home!

We keep additional chairs for your use in a locked storage unit that can also be used to secure your fishing poles or bicycles.

An outside shower with hot/cold water is available for washing away the sand!

Still not convinced this is the ideal beach home! . . . . .

The beach home has 1314 Sq feet of living area, 2 spacious bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. A queen size bed and twin bunk beds are found at the second bedroom!

The beach home will accommodate 6 people in a bed and 2 people in the sleeper sofa bed, for a sleeping capacity of 8!

Make our home - your home at the beach! And make memories to share a lifetime.

Bring your laptop and stay connected with families and friends with our wireless internet or enjoy watching TV on our large screen cable TV.

We have many guests who also rent our beach home next door (HomeAway#973827) to have a vacation to remember with best friends or relatives.

About Yolanda

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 our 3 bedroom; 3 full bathroom beach home (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.

Yolanda purchased this house in 2010

Why Yolanda chose Galveston

Our beach is close to Jamaica beach ( Karankawa 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!

What makes this house unique

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. Our guests LOVE the proximity to the beach as well as the proximity to a well stocked grocery store and Nates Restaurant. We are only 10 miles from the Seawall, which is also a big PLUS!

Fantastic Beach Property

  • 5 of 5

The home is very spacious and comfortable and very close to a stretch of great beach. We had some nice waves and a very clean stretch of beach to walk on. Beach access is close and easy, neighbors are friendly and easy going. Close to Moody Gardens and a nice Krogers on Seawall Blvd. Grocery store next to the property is too expensive and not that well stocked, make the 10 minute drive to Krogers. Would like to repeat the visit, we had a great time.

Owner's Response: Hi Jutta, Thank you for the lovely review on our beach home! We so greatly appreciate the 5 star review! Its true, that's its better to buy groceries and other items in town, sometimes convenience can be too expensive. The neighborhood does try and keep a clean beach. Hope to have you back again to our little house by the sea!

Excellent location and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Yolanda and Doc have a lovely place here and we will definitely return. Beds were comfy, house was immaculate, and the beach access was exactly as promised. The kitchen was nicely stocked with dishes and cookware and we used the grill outside several times. Yolanda helped with some weird questions I had and was extremely responsive. Our family of four had plenty of space to spread out and we took advantage of the balconies and views as often as we could. We can't wait to come back!

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice town home, with all the amenities you could want in a beach vacation. Loved having the storage unit below and water to wash off all our of beach equipment and store it in each day. Location was perfect, and just a short walk to the beach, which was very nice. The grocery store next door had everything you could need. Loved that the beach was not crowded and did not feel like we were in the "touristy" part of Galveston.
