Property description

This elegant condo has everything you could want. Kitchen has granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The furnishings are beautiful with a king size bed in the bedroom, a queen size sofa bed in the living room, as well as a twin mattress stored in the closet that can be placed on the floor. There is also a very long ottoman that serves as a coffee table. It opens up and a twin mattress is inside. The bedroom closet is about 10' by 6' and will store everything you bring. However, you shouldn't have to bring much because we provide all bed linens, towels, soap, pillows, dishes, glasses, flatware, pots, pans, coffeepot with coffee & filters. You will have a private patio overlooking the pool and are located only steps from the beach.
There are 2 swimming pools in this complex and beautiful landscaping everywhere. Be sure and visit the fitness center which is very close to the unit.
I have recently installed new flat-screen TV's in the living room as well as the bedroom. In addition, wifi is available for a nominal daily or weekly fee.

Car: Not Necessary

There are a variety of activities to pursue in Galveston. Our unit is only steps from the beach and it's a great place to walk, fish, sunbathe, surf, etc. A recently opened amusement park called The Pleasure Pier is a few minutes away on the beach. Schlitterbahn is a fun water park that is also close by. Moody Gardens has a rainforest enclosed in a 10 story pyramid, an aquarium and an interactive space exhibit. Be sure and visit the historical Strand area with art galleries, shopping, restaurants, bars, antique stores, historical homes, and much more. Don't forget the wharf area where there are bay tours, museums and other activities. Of course, Seawall Blvd is also great fun with souvenir shops, restaurants, surfboard and bicycle rental shops. You will enjoy the lush landscaping in The Dawn as well as the gated entry to the parking lot.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I retired as an educator a few years ago. During my career I owned some rental beach properties and enjoyed managing them. With my experience, it seemed like a natural choice to continue property management after my retirement.

Why the Owner Chose Dawn Galveston:
Growing up in a town fairly close to Galveston, my family vacationed here quite frequently. I now live in the area and I enjoy sharing my love of Galveston, as well as the Gulf coast. You will never run out of fun things to do.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I am fond of this ground floor condo because of the spaciousness of the unit. It has a private covered patio facing the pool in a quiet area. Great place to read or relax. My condo neigborhood is upscale, quiet, and relaxed. But don't misunderstand, we have a lot of fun here, especially around the pools. Children and adults alike love it!
