Dawn Galveston condo description

GALVESTON VACATION CONDO RENTAL -- GREAT GUEST REVIEWS! -

Excited to be in Galveston? Would you like to increase your excitement by being surrounded with lavish decor? Your island experience should start here!

Imagine yourself sitting on the balcony in your bathrobe drinking your morning coffee and watching the seagulls overhead, while listening to the ocean waves and feeling the great gulf breeze!

Starting your day sitting on the balcony watching the luminous sun coming up is a great experience.

The magic of a fun VACATION or GET-A-WAY will start here!

Great ocean and swimming pool views are seen from the balcony. The water trickling in the fountain below from the swimming pool enhances your sense of relaxation and increases your island experience.

Our condo is in a gated community surrounded by lush tropical landscaping, 2 resort style pools, 1 spa tub, and a full gym with elliptical equipment and free weights. Our swimming pools are open year round.

LOOKING FOR A SMALL, CONFINING SPACE TO SPEND 24/7 HOURS OF INTIMATE MOMENTS TOGETHER? Then unfortunately our condo is not for you!

Our condo would be WAY too spacious with its 1,116 sq. feet.

If you and your family want some personal space during your island stay, then this condo will provide you and your family and friends a great vacation or get-away in a relaxed, luxurious environment far different from the sterile, cramped space of an efficiency hotel or motel!


You can workout at the fitness center then dive into the swimming pool to finish out your workout! OR (my favorites) take your margarita to the swimming pool and relax with a great book and begin your gorgeous suntan.

The large 50 inch flat screen TV will be a welcome in the evening as you and your family watch your favorite movies, munch on popcorn and catch up on family happenings!

You will feel like you are in a tropical resort and close to paradise! This beach condo is luxurious inside and the landscaping outside is fabulous!

The condo kitchen contains stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and you will find high quality furnishings and great amenities!

You will NOT easily forget this vacation or this beach condo!

Our condo has a king size bed with an attached bathroom in the master bedroom. The second bedroom has bunk beds with a double on the bottom and a twin on top. We also have a toddler bed in the spacious closet. A Pack N Play and highchair is also available.

The second bedroom has a small TV with cartoon videos to keep the small ones entertained.

Also enjoy the convenience of a full size dryer and washer inside the condo!

Enjoy your vacation or just a get-away in a relaxing, spacious and luxurious environment.

Our condo is NOT tiny such as you will find at other available island condos!

The 2 large spacious bedrooms with 2 full bathrooms are perfect for a family of seven!

When you come to Galveston, stay at Docs Quarters at the Seawall; experience a great ocean view, clean pools and luscious landscaping. You will surely enjoy your Galveston stay and make wonderful family memories!!

VISIT OUR OTHER LISTINGS: # 914321 (condo in the same complex); # 973827 (3 Bdrm; 3 full BR; beach home) and #973830 (2 Bdrm; 3 full BR beach home) both homes located 10 miles from the seawall on the west end of the island near Jamaica Beach. The two beach homes are only a 2 minute walk to the beach.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              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! Sitting at the balcony in the shade feeling the gulf breeze and looking down at the swimming pool and watching your older kids having a great time at the pool is a great feeling!

              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 (1 mile), the mini golf course, the Galveston Convention Center and Moody Gardens. This makes the condominium ideal for summer fun!

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              The balcony is a wonderful place to relax and plan out your daily itinerary! You can listen to the sounds of the seagulls, the ocean waves or hear the water fountain at the swimming pool. 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! Some guests take their early walk or jog along the seawall while enjoying the sea air and listening to the ocean waves. Exercising can't get any better than that! The condo's proximity and the convenience to Galveston's main attractions is ideal! Check it out!. . .you and your children will not be disappointed with this beach condo!
