About Yolanda Lonsford

We enjoy sharing our Galveston condos and beach homes with family and guests so much that we have just purchased this condo! Doc and I look forward to hearing from our guests to help us make this condo as special as our others.

We find that Galveston, Houston's weekend playground, has so much too enjoy, especially the wonderful seafood! We cannot get enough of the food! The many activities in this historic town are many.

The town is a relaxed seaside community with a lot of history to experience. If you have never enjoyed Galveston, this condo is a MUST!

We work hard to make our places "special" so that guests continue to come back and stay at our wonderful condos or beach homes.

Yolanda Lonsford purchased this condo in 2016

Why Yolanda Lonsford chose Galveston

The Dawn is a beautiful well kept resort type atmosphere. It is located close to all attractions found in Galveston and is very private but family friendly.

The condo is located within 1 mile from Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn and close to the Galveston Convention Center! The Pleasure Pier is on about 7 miles away.

We have many returning guests that enjoy the beautiful grounds and well kept community! Our condos are also very spacious NOT "tiny" like many you will find on the island!

What makes this condo unique

This condo is very spacious; easy access to one of the two swimming pools with the beach across the street! We choose this complex for its beautiful resort - like environment and easy access to all Galveston attractions! And easy access into the condo with no stairs to climb.

You will find value in the spacious condo and beautiful surroundings with our wonderful guest reviews!

Gated condo with comforts of home! Beach located across the street. Very nice and comfortable vacation or romantic get away. Beautiful beach decor! Very close to Moody Gardens; much more spacious than a hotel with many amenities! You will feel like you are at a resort without the price tag.

Convenient and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The condo is across the street from the beach and there's a stop light right out front so it is easy to get across the busy street. The condo is very comfortable and clean and has everything you need. There's also beach chairs and toys in the closet. Yolanda was so easy to work with and very quick to respond to our questions. We will definitely stay there again.

Clean, comfortable 2-bedroom unit centrally located on Seawall

  • 4 of 5

Functional and met our needs. The pool is close to the unit so we heard many kids yelling and playing in the pool beyond 10 pm at night. These units were built as apartments then converted to condos later so they look like and feel like apartments down to the thin walls. Again, it met our needs and was nice and clean.

Owner's Response: Hi Victor, Thanks for your 4 star review! We do work hard to provide a lovely place for our guests! My apologies that kids were making noises in the pool after 10:00 pm. The condo manager will be making nightly rounds to prevent this from happening again. The condos being across from the beach is big plus for our gated community, I hope you come back again!

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to Galveston was to see our son who is working at the UT Medical School hospital so we weren't needing a beach front condo. This was perfect for our needs. The condo is fairly small but it is clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and the furnishings are very nice. All in all, a very nice place with a great owner who has all her ducks in a row and communicates very well with her renters.

Owner's Response: Hi Jim, Thank you for the lovely review! We appreciate you choosing our condo! I'm glad that you were able to have a very nice family gathering with your son. I was surprised to read that our condo was fairly small but I guess it's in the eyes of the beholder, for a Galveston condo, I think it is pretty spacious. Lol Thank you again and I hope you will consider a stay at our condo for your next stay in Galveston.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 4 of 5

Galveston is a GREAT family beach vacation location and this well-appointed condo is in the perfect location. We really enjoyed the fact that this is a first floor condo, which made the pool and beach especially convenient. The kitchen had most everything we needed to keep our family fed (except a toaster??). If we return to Galveston, we will be booking our stay here again.

Owner's Response: Hi Ryan, Thank you for the lovely review!! I wish you had told me you couldn't find a toaster. I would have brought you one. The condo now has a toaster for future guests. I hope that was the only reason we didn't earn a 5 star review! Thanks again and I promise to have a toaster for your return visit! Best regards,
