Great location, easy access to the beach, great pool, nice place! This was perfect for 4 adults and 3 kids (2 of which are babies). The pack n play was a life saver when we realized we forgot our own. Everything was easy and perfect. Thanks for a great stay!

The week before our booking (July 29, 2013) I received an email with door code, gate code etc. and used this to enter the condo. Next day, got a call that we were in the wrong condo and we had to move. As we stayed in the right condo only 2 nights and had paid for three and there was a $200 difference in the totals (the first condo cheaper) I feel I am entitled to a refund. Neither manager would take the responsibility for the mistake. All I did was follow the directions on the email that I got on July 29. IF NOT FOR THIS STRESSFUL SITUATION I WOULD GIVE CONDO #244462 AN EXCELLENT RATING.

Owner response: Thank you for the EXCELLENT RATING you would have given our condo if not for your double trouble. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND YOUR REQUEST FOR MONEY DUE TO PROBLEMS WITH BOB, THE OWNER OF THE CONDO YOU HAD ORIGINALLY RENTED. To explain further: I found out from Bob (other condo owner) that your family entered his condo by mistake and he had been working on the issue all day and his guests who had paid to be in his condo were trying to check in. I explained to Bob that I did not know how you and your family could have entered his condo when mine has its own code. He explained that he had sent you the information to enter his condo because originally you had booked with him and for reasons unknown to me, he cancelled your reservation and refunded your money. He mistakenly sent you the information to access his condo. When I send you my guest information, you first replied that you could not open the document and then 15 - 20 minutes later you emailed me back stating you were able to open the document. In hindsight, you opened his document and that is how you entered his condo by mistake. Bob was quite upset that you were in his condo and originally wanted to charge you for the night. After speaking with Bob, the other condo owner, we agreed that you entered the wrong condo mistakenly and with no malicious intent. He decided to allow your family to spend the night at his condo at no charge and I agreed to reimburse him for the expense of hiring a housekeeper to clean his condo. Again, there was no way for me to know that when you acknowledged having received my guest document that you had opened another home owner’s guest document that was sent to you unbeknown to me. I did forward for your review the email exchanges that you sent to my email address where you acknowledged having received and was able to open the guest document. The entire 2 days you stayed at my condo, you sent me email messages, stating you were very pleased with our condo and the last message was; “Hi Yolanda – We are out of the condo. We had a great time!” Bob had spoken with you and explained that he was NOT going to charge you for a stay at his condo and I further explained to you on the phone that I was sending Bob a check to reimburse him for the extra housecleaning. I have to admit it was quite upsetting to read your request for a refund from me when my condo was available for your family for the 3 nights. In fact it cost me an extra housecleaning fee.
This place is a MUST!
This place is a MUST!
Very very spacious, All the listing info. was accurate, The actual appearance of this condo exceeded the pictures. This condo was spotless and even had a closet with kids beach and pool toys. You don't need to bring a thing but food and toiletries. The owner Yolanda was very helpful in any questions that we had. I would definitely recommend this property to family and friends. This property also was in a less populated area which I loved and only 5 minutes away from attractions. Like I said, this property is a MUST!

4 night stay in Galveston at The Dawn
4 night stay in Galveston at The Dawn
We enjoyed our stay at The Dawn. Yolanda and Doc were very nice to speak with. There was an issue the first night of the AC not working properly. They drove out themselves at 11pm and fixed it. The condo is nice and fully equipped. I loved having the highchair, kids toys, kids books, and the pack n play! It was nice not having to travel with all of those items. The furniture is nice and updated and the master bed is COMFY! My only suggestion, is that a bottle of Windex should be left for guests! I know that seems silly but there was nothing to clean the counter tops or glass table with and there were sticky kid fingerprints all over! The location is decent. You do have a small view of the ocean from the balcony. It is not ocean front. Just for anyone that might be confused! The lagoon pool at The Dawn was our favorite! We liked the beaches to the west more as they were less crowded and you could drive all thew up on them. The only thing my hubby complained about was climbing 3 flights of stairs with a 1 and 2 year old, but that was our knowing and doing! Thank you for providing this lovely condo!

Owner response: Hi Melissa, Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Most guests really enjoy sitting at the balcony, listening to the sounds of the waterfall from the pool, watching the ocean waves and feeling the ocean breeze!
My husband, daughter and 2 friends visited Galveston for the weekend and we were all wonderfully surprised to find such an amazingly CLEAN condo. It's the perfect size, easy to find and perfect access to the beach across the street. The girls loved the hot tub. I loved the high-end kitchen which was fully stocked. That made it easy to whip up delicious meals. The added bonus was the full-size washer and dryer! Yolanda, the property owner was EXCEPTIONAL! She was friendly and her exceptional customer-service skills made booking our stay almost effortless. Can't forget to mention the beautiful decor; not just in the living area but throughout the entire condo! My husband and I are already talking about visiting one of the other properties owned by Yolanda and her husband Doc. I'm sure we won't be disappointed! We definitely recommend this property.

About the owner: We have lived along the Texas Gulf Coast for over 25 years. We have seen Galveston grow into an exciting and beautiful resort city with a home town culture! We enjoy walking along the seawall and beach especially early mornings and late evenings - watching the sun rise and the moon's radiant glow on the waves. We also enjoy sitting on the balcony, drinking coffee, eating breakfast and watching the ocean waves and hearing the water from the fountain at the swimming pool. These experience can be very romantic!
Why the Owner Chose Dawn Galveston:
Our condo unit makes for a great getaway while staying on the island. It has beautiful landscaping and the condominiums are splashed with tropical Caribbean colors. I especially enjoy the location and proximity to Schlitterbahn Water Park, the mini golf course, the convention center and Moody Gardens. This makes the condominium ideal for summer fun!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
It is a wonderful place to relax and listen to the sounds of the seagulls. Listening to the ocean or the fountain at the swimming pool and watching the water along the seawall is absolutely superb! Sunbathe at the condominium’s one of two swimming pools or go to the public beach along the seawall and feel the sand between your toes! Its proximity and the convenience to everything the town has to offer is ideal!
