About the property

Ocean front master bedroom has king size bed; second BR has queen size bed

Recently updated ground level, ocean front condo with VERYspacious floorplan; 2 bedrooms with walk in closets and new carpet and mattresses and 2 full-size baths (one with walk-in shower). Enjoy the island theme décor throughout and relax in the coastal lifestyle. Located at The Dawn Condominiums 1/2 mile from 61st St. on Seawall Blvd., the complex is fully gated with close proximity to Galveston attractions, shopping, dining AND the beach but offers seclusion from the crowd. The beach restoration project was completed in Nov '15 so we now have 300' of sandy beach directly across the street from our condo. The property features exterior Caribbean colors with tropical landscaping and beautiful mature palm trees surrounding two large resort-style swimming pools with large hot tub as well as a well-equipped fitness room. Additionally, we provide FREE WiFi !!

Enjoy full ocean views from the living area of this unit as well as the master bedroom while relaxing in the comfort of an open floor plan covering 1116 sq. ft. This is a corner unit providing extra windows for enjoying the views of the water. The master bedroom has a king-size bed while the secondary bedroom has a queen size bed and enjoys views of the Gulf as well as one of the pools. Both bedrooms feature roomy walk-in closets. With no stairs to navigate from the front parking area, the location is well-suited for anyone physically challenged.

Our unit features fully equipped kitchen with stainless appliances, granite countertops and a full size washer and dryer. Both baths have granite countertops and the master bath has a large tiled walk-in shower. The condo is furnished with flat screen TVs in each bedroom and the living area. Enjoy all the comforts of home including FREE wireless internet service and HD service in the living room TV.

About Linda Dowdy

I am a retiree of Hewlett-Packard after working 22 years in their Houston offices. My husband, Tom, is ‘semi’ retired after 30+ years as a broker in residential real estate. We manage several residential investment properties and take extreme care to see that each one is maintained with high quality appeal and comfort. We look forward to having a condo on the Gulf of Mexico as our ‘escape’ to relax and enjoy ‘island life’. Renting our condo for the sake of rental income is not our priority but we welcome those who will appreciate the use of it with care.

Linda Dowdy purchased this condo in 2013

Why Linda Dowdy chose Gulf Coast

I grew up in the bay area of the Gulf Coast and always feel at home when enjoying the condo. The Dawn is considered one of the most beautiful resort developments on the island and is located close to dining, entertainment and of course, the beach. The constant maintenance of any property exposed to a salt water environment is very challenging and The Dawn has a high standard for maintenance. The apartment size floor plan exceeds most condo properties on the island. Our unit has 1,116 sq. ft compared to other properties with tiny kitchens and bunk beds located in hallways. With 2 walk-in closets in our condo including built-in chests/shelves, the space is never cramped.

What makes this condo unique

Fantastic views from the living room, master bedroom and patio of the Gulf; very spacious ground floor plan with 1,116 sq. ft. located in a beautiful tropical development; 2 pools and 1 Jacuzzi; fitness room, great location convenient to everything …..

Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a weekend in this condo with another couple. It is just as pictured - right on the ocean. The décor was great and the beds were wonderful. This condo was absolutely spotless when we arrived. This was a perfect home away from home for us. We would definitely stay here again and the owner was so easy to work with. Highly recommend.

This was a great condo for the weekend. Close access to the beach. I have stayed at other units in this area and this unit is my favorite by far. Close to the large pool, ground level and has a great view.

Lovely Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay in Galveston. The condo had everything one could want--and more than one expected. Condo was tastefully furnished and decorated. The ocean view, especially at sunrise, was breath-taking.

My only complaint, was that I had to leave!
