Dawn Galveston condo 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. 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.

                  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!
