Description from owner

Docs Quarters near Kemah is a 14 minute drive to Kemah Boardwalk; a 10 mile drive to Nasa Space Center. And Sylvan Beach in La Porte is 4 minutes (1.7 miles).

This spacious guest apartment located on top of the owners garage is located next to the upper Galveston Bay area only 8 miles from the Kemah Boardwalk. The owner's property has a private fishing pier and will share the swimming pool. The apartment is a 1 minute walk to the Bay with wonderful views of the ocean!

Sylvan beach is only about a 10 minute drive from the guest apartment to soak up the sun and sand!

View the cruise ship when docked at the Houston cruise terminal from the pier or from the swimming pool. You can also fish at the private pier.

This Docs Quarters property is very close to the NASA Space Center and all that Houston has to offer with its museums, medical center and the Houston Zoo.

You can enjoy the swimming pool while leisurely watching the ocean waves crashing onto the bulkhead.

This garage apartment is amazingly spacious and will sleep 2 in the queen size bed, 2 in the sofa bed and 1 in the twin bunk.

Beds: 1 Queen Bed, 1 Twin Bed, 1 Sofa Bed

“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”

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!

“Lovely stay!”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2015

We loved the spacious apartment! More space than 2 people needed. And most of all amazing surroundings and lovely views of the Bay especially while sitting on the bench at the piers. Enjoyed some fishing too!

Owner's reply: The ocean view is lovely! Thanks for choosing our apartment for your stay.
