About the area

The guest home is located above the owners garage in a quiet residential neighborhood that is located in the older part of La Porte, Texas. Views of the bay can be seen from the windows. The owners rarely use the garage and your privacy will be greatly respected! You will enjoy sitting at the pier and watching the ocean ships travel to and from the Houston ship channel while listening to the ocean waves crashing against the bulkhead! Enjoying the pool while viewing the bay is a must! Sylvan Beach is only 2 miles away. Nasa Space Center is 10 miles from the apartment! And many Houston museums, shops and so much more are available at the Kemah Boardwalk and Houston.

Getting around

8- 10 minute drive gets you to the Kemah Boardwalk and NASA Space Center!

Getting here

We are located at the upper part of Galveston bay along the Houston ship channel route. Near hwy 146 with its quaint shops and local seaward atmosphere. Seabrook, Kemah, and La Porte have a historical story to tell being old cities situated along the Texas gulf coast. You will enjoy being among the locals!

Interaction with guest

We provide a hands off approach but are available 24/7 should you have any questions. Your privacy will be respected.

“Beautiful Retreat!”

Reviewed 23 Mar 2016

We had a wonderful time at Docs Quarter. The accomodations were beautiful and well thought out decor. Very private and clean with everything you would need for your stay. Our host, Yolanda was as pleasant as could be. The location was close to Kemah and Galveston. We couldn't have asked for a nicer stay.

Owner's reply: Thank you Terri for the nice comments! We enjoyed meeting your lovely family and we're pleased that you all had a wonderful stay!

“Sister weekend”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2015

We enjoyed staying at Doc's Quarters in LaPorte! The accommodations were perfect and Yolanda was super sweet! We can't wait to have another weekend get away. The pool was such a nice bonus!

Owner's reply: Thank you for posting a guest review! We hope to see you again with your sisters!
