                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: I am a retired nursing professor who taught at San Jacinto Community college for 32 years. I currently work part time as a home health nurse for Coram Health Care. I enjoy interacting with people and I find that renting my beach homes/condos still gives me that opportunity! I grew up in Victoria, Texas, graduated from Victoria High School, attended Victoria Community College for one year and then received my bachelor's degree in Nursing from Dominician College in Houston, Texas. I have a Master’s Degree in Science (University of Houston; Clear Lake Campus) and a Master’s Degree in Nursing from the University of Texas Health Science Center. I currently live in La Porte, TX by the ocean that I love so much!

                      Why the Owner Chose Dawn Galveston:
                      Our condo is close to all the attractions, One mile from Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn and has 2 great swimming pools, a heated spa and even a fitness center! There are BBQ grills near the swimming pool area. The management has a full time person to make sure the grounds are nicely kept and the swimming pools are ready year round. All guests who have stayed at our Dawn Condominiums beach condos always want to return, can't say anything better than that!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      I immediately fell 'in love' with this condo when I saw the ocean view from the entertainment room and then when I saw the double sinks with the large, modern shower in the master bathroom I was hooked! I have been in many expensive hotels and resorts through out the country and this condo's ocean view and location is among the best! The condo complex is very close to Schlitterbahn Water Park and Moody Gardens as well as to the Galveston Convention Center and The Strand Historic District for shopping! Very conveniently located! We provide superior furnishings to make your stay a resort experience!
