About Bob Molis

Bob was born and raised on Galveston island. I [Maureen] traveled from Canada in 1977, recruited as an R.N. for old St. Mary,s Hospital. Over the years we have come to appreciate the natural beauty and historic gifts that Galveston has to offer.Our interest in travel and photography has allowed us to experience many types of accommodations. We have found vacation rentals to be affordable, and the best way to appreciate the culture and activities of the destination. Bob and I through our condo, would like to extend this opportunity to other travelers.

Bob Molis purchased this condo in 2011

Why Bob Molis chose Gulf Coast

After an extensive search of the island for luxury,convenience,comfort and fabulous views,this space was the obvious location. As we stepped out on the balcony we knew we had arrived.

What makes this condo unique

After an extensive search of the island for the ideal property that provides luxury,convenience,comfort and a fabulous view ,this space was the obvious choice.As we stepped out on the balcony we knew we had arrived. We pictured ourselves sitting on the balcony with a cup of coffee watching the sun rise,or a glass of wine at sunset as the last rays of the sun danced on the waves.

The interior of this space has much to offer as well. The decor is anchored in granite counter tops,superior tile work and stainless steel appliances.Furniture is attractive,modern and comfortable.The art pieces are peaceful and include our Thomas Kinkade collection as well as a restful water theme.This is a property that will make you fall in love with all that Galveston has to offer, as well as all that life and family has to offer.

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect - great location on the sea wall, with shopping close by. If you are heading to Galveston, I recommend this condo. It was spotlessly clean and well appointed. Be sure and check out "The Spot" and the "Mosquito Cafe" for a great meal!

We had a great time, the condo was amazing. I was pleasantly surprised when we walked in the door. It was after dark and a 600 mi bike ride. We walked in and everything was immaculate and the temp. was great to walk into after a long day. Thank you so much for sharing with the Oklahoma Crew.

Perfect spot

  • 4 of 5

Thank you guys so much for letting us stay. We had a great time the place was wonderful, wish the pool stayed open a little later but understandable. It felt like a high end hotel just bigger and a really good view.

Grand Place to Stay for Our Son''s Wedding

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Bob and Maureen's unit with our daughter and her husband while we were in Galveston for our son's wedding. The two bedroom condo was very clean and very well furnished. This is our second stay at the Dawn by the Sea. We love the location, the security in place, the amenities and how well the property is maintained. The only issue we had was connecting to the Wi-Fi and that was taken care of with one phone call to Bob. Other than that, the condo was perfect. The customer service they provide is simply outstanding. A bag of chocolates was on the kitchen table when we arrived; they provided soap, lotions, and shampoo; they even provided a bathrobe in each bathroom. They really know how to take care of their customers. Before our arrival, Bob provided us with a list of restaurants we might enjoy. We bought groceries at the nearby Wal-Mart to make breakfast in our unit. The rehearsal dinner and the wedding meal were at the Garyen Verein Pavilion. Friends of ours ate at the Fisherman's Wharf, while others enjoyed a lighter fare at The Spot. We have enjoyed the food at Mario Italian Restaurant in the past. Our son and daughter-in-law live in Houston and I am certain we will be staying at the Dawn again. We will definitely be in contact with Bob and Maureen on the availability of their unit.
