About Darius or Suzanne Randeria

Suzanne and I have been married for 15 years and live in Houston. I am a Doctor Of Pharmacy and my wife a retired nurse. We have 2 children and love to travel

Darius or Suzanne Randeria purchased this condo in 2007

Why Darius or Suzanne Randeria chose Galveston

Galveston is fun at all times of the year. It is a short drive from Houston and this resort, The Dawn Condominiums, is the nicest on the strip. We did not have to buy there, but we ended up buying two properties because it truly feels like a luxury resort and not a 'Tired' old building. The grounds are plush with Tropical plants and the two pools are immaculately maintained. Even in Winter, if there is such a thing in Texas, the hot tub is kept at a high temperature, which we always enjoy after a day of fun.

The Moody gardens and Schlitterbahn are in the same area and only minutes away. The restaurants in Galveston are also excellent and, if you are from out of the state, Houston is only 45 minutes away.

What makes this condo unique

The sunsets are truly unrivaled and the view from this one is absolutely panoramic. You see nothing butbeach and wide open sea. There are sometimes dolphins near the shore and lots of pelicans and other birds. We like to walk along the seawall or hire a bicycle car and pedal. This condo also has gated parking but one nice feature of its location at the resort is that there is also a small car park on the actual seawall which can be used for an easy and quick in-out.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great Condo. We had been to Galveston a lot and to be honest, we were on a time crunch this year as my husband is doing his MBA. Once we arrived at the dawn we were impressed by the grounds and the pools. When we got to the condo, we were amazed that it was a holiday rental was so nice. We forgot coffee but you had it there as well as a stocked kitchen and bathrooms.

Galveston was fun but your condo made it a vacation!

Beautiful and relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

As for the view. Well you can't beat it. Sunrise every morning, the sound of the waves and the long walks on the beach. Now the beach is not like the Caribbean but still nice to walk along the waters edge. The condo has all that we needed for our stay. It was conveniently located near grocery stores and restaurants. The pool and the grounds were very well kept. It was a little quiet at times due to low season but we made the best of it. We went to Houston, San Antonio and Austin for mini vacations. We saw all there was to see on Galveston Island. I would recommend this place for someone looking for relaxation and a little sightseeing.

Thank You Darius and Suzanne for the use of your beautiful condo.

Beautiful Condo. Everything worked. The only negative was that it was damp smelling.

  • 3 of 5

A very nice place with the exception of the damp smell of humidity that greeted us when we entered. Perhaps it had been closed up for a while but it definitely needed to be aired out. We opened windows and ran the a/c and it improved but never really went away completely over our two day stay.

Otherwise, the place was very nice and furnished and equipped as advertised.

The main parking entrance gate was not operating and so we didn't use the security key to enter.

Owner's Response: Hi Thanks for taking the time to do a review. We appreciate that. I think the last guests had turned off the HVAC system. We do stress in our directions that they should leave it at a certain temp. Safe travels and Merry Christmas

Beautiful Condo with a great view!

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a great time. The condo was beautiful and the view is amazing . We came right after hurricane Harvey do unfortunately there was a very musty smell in the condo. We did let the caretaker know and she brought us some plug-ins and even a bottle of wine for our troubles. We did have quite a bit of trouble with the internet, it went out quite often. Otherwise we had a very fun time!!!
