About the property

Luxurious 3rd Flr Condo w/Amazing Beach & Pool View, free wifi, TVs in each room

Located just a mile from the Galveston Convention Center/San Luis Resort, and just 2 miles from the Schlitterbahn Waterpark/Moody Gardens, Sunrise Condo is close to all the big attractions and major shopping centers on the island.

Our condo is part of The Dawn Condominium complex and is privately owned and operated. It has an amazing top-floor view of the ocean and a property pool right off the balcony. It's one of the most picturesque locations on the property. The unit has 825 sq ft of living space with nice high ceilings and a wonderful balcony with two custom-made captain's chairs and table. The unit has a nice king size bed in the master and newly added hardwood flooring. The large sleeper sofa has a very comfortable Queen mattress and topper that can easily sleep 2 adults. Blackout curtains are installed in both rooms to block the morning sun for late sleepers.

Sunrise comes fully equipped with two large wall mounted smart TVs (one in the living room, one in the bedroom), Comcast HD cable service, free WiFi Internet, and Internet streaming of music and video from the popular sources such as Pandora, Amazon, and Netflix) in all rooms. There's also a full size clothes washer/dryer in the utility room next to the kitchen, all modern stainless steel appliances, and a large capacity ice-maker in the refrigerator/freezer.

New Rule as of September 2017.

In order to keep our property for our guest's use only, the Dawn property management is requiring all guest to check in at the front office to receive a parking pass and wrist bands for the pool. The cost is $20 per vehicle and that will include your parking permits and wrist bands. You will need to present the booking form received with your Welcome Letter.

Gated private parking is located right in front of the condo.

There are no keys to pickup or to keep track of, making check-in/check-out very easy. The Dawn is a fully gated community and uses key codes to access all its amenities.

No Deposit Required, $85 cleaning fee

Additional $20 parking/wrist band fee paid to The Dawn at check-in.

Please note- This condo is a 3rd floor unit with staircase access only, but the unobstructed view of the Gulf of Mexico is worth the couple of steps!

Cancellation Policy - If you must cancel, please do so 30 days prior to your arrival date. If the reservation is NOT canceled before the 30 day time frame, there will be no refund.

We do not advertise on Craigslist or Tansler! We also do not accept cashiers checks or personal checks.

About Richard D - Property Manager

Married 20 years live in Kingwood, TX (an hour and a half from Galveston.) We have a son and a daughter that are fully grown now and most recently- a grandson.

Richard D - Property Manager purchased this condo in 2013

Why Richard D - Property Manager chose Galveston

The thing that we love about our location on the island is its beautiful view of the ocean and how close it is to all of Galveston's major shopping areas on the West End. We also like being on the top floor of our 3 story unit building. In the morning we can see the beautiful sunrises over the ocean and hear the waves with an awesome pool in the foreground. In the evening we can watch the sun set on the breezeway balcony on the front side of the unit and enjoy the shade of the surrounding palm trees in front of the balcony.

Another great thing about this location within The Dawn Condominium complex is it's quietness. We are set back about 100ft from all the hustle and bussle of the Seawall yet we have a very nice view of it right off our balcony.

What makes this condo unique

Close enough to the beach to hear the surf, Free Wifi, Free Internet Streaming for Online movies and music providers, Top floor unit gives you a great view of clubhouse pool and the beach. See the sunrise on the back patio with your coffee and the sunset with your favorite adult beverage on the front balcony.

The perfect place to stay and play!

VRBO Bear stayed here

How do you make a vacation in wonderful Galveston even better? By staying at this immaculate centrally located condo! My bear family and I had such a wonderful time, we were all sad to leave. This condo is perfect for families, or for any other traveler who enjoys a relaxing beautiful place to stay. We especially enjoyed the patio for drinking coffee and listening to the waves. When we were resting in the condo, we enjoyed all of the TV channels. This condo has literally everything we could think of. The bright décor was refreshing and appreciated. The closet off of the master room is so massive we were able to put our cub’s blow up bed in there so she could have her own room! The abundance of towels was hotel quality and it was nice having all of the extra amenities. The gated entrance made the condo feel very safe and secluded. If you ever did need anything, there is a Walmart across the street. Galveston is a lovely city with a wide array of attractions from the beach to the strand. We specifically enjoyed learning about all of the history that this city has to offer. The free ferry ride to Port Bolivar is always a plus! Galveston and the Sunrise Condo go together like sand and sunshine, a perfect pair!

Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Like a vacation at home!

  • 5 of 5

When it comes to rentals I am extremely picky. This unit is one I could have spent a month in!! Besides being beautifully decorated, the space was open and ample, the views of the pool and beach were perfect, and the bed was so comfy I didnt want to leave it!! We stayed here over the Thanksgiving weekend and I did a bit of cooking. The kitchen had all I needed; I was so thrilled!! It was nice to have an area to sit and eat. My only "issue" was something that cant be fixed as it's the property. This amazing unit is on the 3rd floor and this property is without elevators. It wasnt too bad, though. Everything else cancelled out the stairs. Haha. Weve stayed in a handful of places on the island and none have had the view of this unit. It's also a plus to be near gas stations and Walmart. The property was safe and clean as well.

Tammy and Richard were hospitable and quick to respond if needed. They were very accommodating. What you see in the pictures is what youll walk in to.

Id love to recommend this rental to friends but I dont want them to book it when we want it!! We will definitely stay here again.

Thanks!

Awesome room and location

  • 4 of 5

The reviews don't do this place justice. First of all, there's the location, right across from the seawall that provides a partial view of the Gulf from the balcony and bedroom window . A Valero is right at the corner. The infamous 61st Street Pier is just up the road, along with a Wal-mart, Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens, and several restaurants and tourist shops.

The complex entrance can be a little tricky to find if you don't read the instructions thoroughly: be sure to turn from the seawall onto 69th street, ignoring the similarly-colored complex up the road on the right. Instead, take the first entrance to the left. I'd suggest having the gate and room lock code handy for quick reference before you arrive. As you enter the gate, look to the left for the building, and climb the blue-colored stairs.

About the only the lacking here is an elevator, and food. This room is *more* than fully-equipped, with just about everything you could need short of consumables -- though some of those are even included. There's a full-size washer and dryer, full size refrigerator with in-door water and ice, dishes and utensils, pots and pans, a full stove and microwave. The bathroom is a nice size and has extra towels and washcloths. The bedroom has a large, beautiful bed and great view (previously mentioned), along with a wall-mounted TV and large, walk-in storage closet with the extra bedding and goodies including games. The living room has plenty of comfortable furniture and an electronic front door lock.

The condo complex and condo itself are colorful and cheerful, bright and cheery, but not garish or overdone. The unit, in fact, is tastefully decorated and the neighbors are reasonably quiet. We had no noise problems, felt totally safe & secure, and experienced no problems with anything or anyone. We were quite impressed, and WILL be back again.

Perfect View of Beach, with the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for my husband and I to celebrate our 35th anniversary in Galveston. Being September, it is the beginning of the "off-season", yet there was plenty to do. The condo complex offers two pools and an exercise room. Babe's Beach is directly in front of the complex. And great restaurants, Pleasure Pier & fishing piers all very close by. Being active folks, we were even able to walk to some of these. Otherwise, everything is a very short drive. The condo itself is tastefully decorated, with all the amenities one could ask for. And the bed was so comfortable, every night was a good night sleep. You must walk up to the third floor, but it is worth the view. The balcony is the perfect place to share a glass of wine and watch the waves hit the beach!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay here very much. It's very clean and beautifully decorated. The king size bed was super comfortable. When we arrived, pulled in, and opened the door my family had that "wow" factor walking in the door and walking around the property. Loved it! The pools and the property are kept up beautifully. It was an amazing place to stay.
