Kemah, Texas
Docs Quarters near Kemah is a 14 minute drive to Kemah Boardwalk; a 10 mile drive to Nasa Space Center. Sylvan Beach in La Porte is 4 minutes (1.7 miles). Galveston beaches are only a 40 minute drive.

This spacious guest apartment located on top of the owners garage is next to the upper Galveston Bay area only 8 miles from Kemah Boardwalk. The owners garage is used for storing a rarely used vehicle so garage noise should not be an issue for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. The owner's property has a private fishing pier and shares the swimming pool. The apartment is a 1 minute walk to the Bay with wonderful views of the ocean!

Sylvan beach is only approximately an 8 minute drive from the guest apartment to soak up the sun and sand!

Ships coming and going from the Houston Port can be easily seen from the pier or from the swimming p...

My children & I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at Docs Quarter. The studio apartment was perfect for us with the twin bed, the Queen bed, and the pull-out sleeper sofa. It was a great place to come back to & relax after a day spent exploring the Houston & Galveston areas. The dock into the bay and the...

My family stayed at Doc's Quarters June 28- July 3. We're a family of three and it was absolutely perfect for our needs. The quarters was very well maintained and very clean. The pool was great and the fishing from the pier was too! The homeowners were very friendly and showed us Michiganders some true Southern hospitality. If we ever...

About the neighbourhood
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!
