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.

Why Richard D - Property Manager chose Gulf Coast

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!

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.

Great time!

My husband and I had a great stay! The condo was nicely furnished. The location was convenient to shops and restaurants. The pools were refreshing in the 100 degree heat and everyone was so friendly. Would definitely book this condo again.

Great condo! Love the location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect view of the water without being directly on the road (less road noise). Great complex, well maintained, close to so many restaurants and a very short drive to Moody Gardens. Condo is clean, updated, and well equipped. Using the code for entry is a great idea. We didn't have to carry keys down to the pool or beach. We really enjoyed being able to take a walk down the sea wall and enjoy the beach without getting in the car. The only thing I would suggest is leaving the AC on 75 instead of 80 on departure. 80 degrees is a little warm in the summer and it took a few hours for it to cool down. We had a great stay, would definitely recommend and stay again.

Sun, fun and family

  • 5 of 5

This condo and location were amazing. My girls and I loved the two pools available to us. We all loved how easy it was to get to the beach. We would wake up, walk to the beach, swim and hunt for shells and then come back to swim in the pools. We also walked on the beach at night, which was so cool. The balcony was one of my favorite spots to read and relax. It was shaded and had a wonderful breeze, so even though the temperature was hot, I was cool and comfortable. We all loved the pillow tops on the King bed and the pull out couch. So appreciated having a washer and dryer. The shower was wonderful and so was the kitchen. The whole place was beautifully decorated and so comfortable. The only issue we had is that we couldn't figure out how to put the pull-out couch away, so we left it opened our whole stay. But that was really no big deal. This was the best vacation my family has had. Absolutely top notch.
