About Yolanda

I am a retired nursing professor who taught at San Jacinto Community college for 32 years. I currently work part time as a home health nurse for Coram Health Care.

I enjoy interacting with people and I find that renting my beach homes/condos still gives me that opportunity!

I grew up in Victoria, Texas, graduated from Victoria High School, attended Victoria Community College for one year and then received my bachelor's degree in Nursing from Dominician College in Houston, Texas. I have a Master’s Degree in Science (University of Houston; Clear Lake Campus) and a Master’s Degree in Nursing from the University of Texas Health Science Center.

I currently live in La Porte, TX by the ocean that I love so much!

Yolanda purchased this condo in 2011

Why Yolanda chose Galveston

Our condo is close to all the attractions, One mile from Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn and has 2 great swimming pools, a heated spa and even a fitness center! There are community BBQ grills near the swimming pool areas. We are also 1 mile from the Galveston Convention Center!

The management has a full time person to make sure the grounds are nicely kept and the swimming pools are ready year round.

Our guests who have stayed at our condos always want to return, CAN'T SAY ANYTHING BETTER THAN THAT!

What makes this condo unique

The ocean view from the entertainment room and the bedroom are AMAZING and the spacious double sinks with the large, modern glass enclosed shower in the master bathroom are unique and not easily found in other condos!

I have traveled extensively and stayed in many expensive hotels and resorts and this condo's ocean view and location is among the best! I only needed to bring the outside ocean beauty inside which is proven by my guest reviews!

I can't say enough about the great location - Schlitterbahn Water Park, Moody Gardens and the Galveston Convention Center are only 1 mile away.

AND the Strand Historic District for shopping is only 4 miles away!

Very conveniently located! We strive to provide superior furnishings to make your stay a resort experience!

A GREAT TRIP The most comfortable place, beautiful

  • 4 of 5

The most comfortable place/condo we have ever rented. The master bed was so wonderful, I’d like to know what kind of mattress it is. The place was welcoming, comfortable where we all relaxed and enjoyed and early vacation. Thank you so much for letting us rent.

The only issue was that someone broke into my daughter’s finance’s car. The gate was working at the time. Make sure you don’t leave any valuables in the car. Lived in TX for 6 years and the running joke is if you haven’t been broken into in some way, you’re not a Texan. Things just happen. GREAT PLACE LOVE IT and hope to come back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely review! We’re so pleased the condo was as described and better. I sincerely apologize for the theft that occurred in your daughter’s fiancé ‘s car. It’s unfortunate that it happened in our complex. I will bring it to the attention of the management team in hopes that they will consider having a curtesy officer or security cameras installed. Thanks again. Yolanda

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time in this very comfortable condo. The beds are very comfortable as is the sitting area. The view from the balcony is amazing. Several in our group walked to the beach easily. It was a great place to catch up with old friends.

Beautiful and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a 3 night stay for my birthday with family. The condo is beautiful and decorated very nicely and the beds and pillows are very comfortable! The view from the balcony is amazing and the patio furniture is perfect. You cannot get a better view. The beach just across the street is so easily accessible and not as crowded as other areas. We have stayed at The Dawn Condos for numerous years in various units and have always enjoyed the beautiful pools, and grounds and quietness of the complex. It is so convenient to be located next to Walmart and a Valero store, literally within walking distance. Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn are minutes away from complex. The owner, Ms Yolanda, is very nice and provides a quick response when contacted. Check in information is provided in detail prior to arrival and makes check in and out very easy and effortless. We very much enjoyed our stay and would definitely return to Docs Quarters again!
