About the property

2Bd/2Bth, 1200 sq ft, Hardwoods, Granite, Ocean Front

***Must be 25 years old to rent**This newly furnished condo is part of the new 'Dawn By The Beach' Condominium complex. It is a fully gated community and sits directly on the seawall. It is one of the most desirable locations for those who want a taste of luxury and space to spread out. There is a newly created Sandy Beach across from the resort. The large grounds feature lush landscaping with beautiful mature palm trees and the two large resort-style swimming pools have plenty of lounging space. There is also a large hot tub for those tired muscles and a good-sized work-out facility. There are many properties along the seawall to choose from, some are dated and others are in the process of being modernized. The Dawn has already undergone this transition and is truly a spectacular property with beautiful views and a premium location. This unit is is directly on the seawall and has a panoramic view of the sea. It has been completely remodeled for summer 2013 and features all the amenities needed for a short or extended stay. This unique floor plan has a master bedroom with private bath and double granite vanity sink as well as a second bedroom with an additional bath. Ocean views can be enjoyed from the dining and living room, not to mention the master bedroom.

The Dawn has many condos, not all of which are directly on the seawall. Also, there are no elevators so if you have a hard time with stairs or get tired of carrying all your beach stuff, this is the perfect unit for you

The condo comfortably sleeps 6 with a queen size bed in each bedroom and a sleeper sofa. Enjoy your coffee on the balcony while watching the sun come up or just relax with a glass of wine at sunset and listen to the ocean lapping at the shore, pure bliss!

This is the Creme De La Creme of condos.

About Darius or Suzanne Randeria

We (Darius and Suzanne) are a husband and wife team with young children. We live in Texas and have always loved the ocean. We fell in love with (The Dawn) because it is s well kept and the condos were so large compared to all the others we looked at, not to mention totally updated. The location was also so central to everything Galveston has to offer.

Darius or Suzanne Randeria purchased this condo in 2012

Why Darius or Suzanne Randeria chose Gulf Coast

It is simply the best in Galveston and, believe us, we looked very hard.

What makes this condo unique

Large floor plans, modern updates, lovely grounds and pools, and well-furnished. Excellent location for everything. One of only a few managers who provide free high speed WIFI

Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived late at night, instructions were excellent. My Mother and two young kids weer with me. The floors were beautiful and the kitchen was well-stocked and right out of a magazine. The views were lovely, especially at Dawn and the pool was very big, although only the kids got in. It has to be 80 degrees before I get in a pool!

We'll definitely come again.

We always expect the best but most often don't achieve that...not so at this property. The photos accurately portray the 2-br condo! Well kept, exceptionally clean, located on main island boulevard. Everything you could possibly ask for an upscale property.

We miscalculated our dates... totally our fault...but owners were able to work it out to our benefit. We are so grateful and happy that we could stay an extra night. We would have rated this property a 10, but now We'd rate a 20!

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was great. Nice open floor plan gave plenty of room for everyone to be in the same area without feeling crowded. The beds were soft and comfy and the master bathroom was awesome. We enjoyed the location and being on the first floor was a definite plus. I would stay here again.

Lovely condo on the seawall; convenient to beach, shops, and dining.

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I stayed at this beautiful condo for two nights. It slept 5 of us comfortably (could have slept 6). The condo itself had everything we could have asked for; luxurious towels in the bathrooms, kitchen fully stocked with dinnerware and appliances, comfortable beds, and tastefully decorated. The patio out front allowed us to sit and watch and and listen to the waves, as well as see the sunrise and sunset. It was only minutes from the Strand and the Bolivar ferry and many choices of restaurants nearby. We would definitely visit Dawn Galveston again!

Great property! Loved the condo!

  • 3 of 5

Overall experience was great. Would like to see more modern amenities such as updated coffee maker. Like that there was a washer/dryer. Would have liked to have the condo cooler on such hot days but was comfortable. Would stay again at this particular condo. Plenty of room for the 5 of us.

Owner's Response: Cyndee, Glad you loved the condo!!! We have updated the coffee maker and turning down the thermostat should cool the condo. I haven't heard of any issues with this but I will personally check it. The spaciousness of 1,200 square feet of living space definitely makes it comfortable for a party of five, as you said. We are so glad you plan to stay again!!
