Great location and much better than a hotel stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Dawn was a great central location to reach all of our Galveston activities - a dolphin tour, Seawolf Park, the Port Bolivar Ferry, and Moody Gardens. I especially enjoyed morning coffee watching the sun rise over the Gulf. The convenience of having a full kitchen and laundry, with grocery stores nearby, can't be beat. We'll definitely consider the Dawn for our next trip to Galveston!

  • 2 of 5

The View was unbeatable.Unit had some top end finishes, Countertops, appliances. With minor maintenance & House keeping this unit could have been a 4 Star or better rating.

Bedding dirty, as well as both shower's a handful size pile of hair on top of drain in shower & cracks in grout in corners up and down both showers. Many broken floor tiles. GFCI kept throwing in bath when not in use. Washing machine had a small leak from soap dispenser.

Beautiful home, great property at prime location

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect getaway for us, two girl friends, who get together every other year for Thanksgiving. The condo is on the third floor, (no elevator) right across the Seawall at 61st with view on the beach. It’s a gated community and completely safe. The instructions and direction given were excellent and easy to follow. The place is nicely decorated, very clean, the kitchen well stocked (could use a larger frying pan) and plenty of towels in the bathrooms. (Items for the beach provided). The property includes a nice, although small, workout room, two pools and a hot tub. There was nobody in any of those when we were there so size did not matter. We really enjoyed our trip and got plenty of rest which is what we were looking for.

Imagine starting your Galveston vacation, sitting out on the beautiful oceanfront balcony, enjoying your favorite beverage, eating the breakfast of your choice, and watching the ocean waves crashing on the seawall or beach, listening to the seagulls, and feeling the salt in the air! This condo reminds you of a 5 star resort, with all the amenities you can imagine.

The 2 large bedrooms, with 2 full bathrooms are perfect for a family of 6, with no problem. There is also a spacious pull out sofa bed in the den, with close access to a full bathroom with modern fixtures and large bath tub.

The Dawn is located in an extremely private, gated community, surrounded by lush tropical landscaping, 2 resort style pools nearby, a heated spa tub, a picnic area, with a charcoal grill and picnic tables, and a full gym with elliptical weights and free weights.

There is a large flat TV screen in the living room, as well as the Master bedroom.

You'll feel like you are in a high-end tropical resort, with a full size washer/dryer, fully equipped kitchen, and everything you'll need to prepare a great meal for your family. Just bring the food!

Moody Gardens is 1 mile away, and the popular Schlitterbaun Water Park is nearby. The historic downtown district is 4.7 miles away, and extremely close to all the popular attractions on the island.

The condo is large and spacious, not tiny, like other condos on the site.

The Master bedroom has an attached bathroom with double sinks, and a modern, glass enclosed shower. The second bedroom has a large, King size bed with a spacious bathroom with granite counter tops and large bathtub, steps across from the bedroom.

We tried to include everything in the modern kitchen, that you could possibly need, as well as a DVD player for unlimited movies, and high-speed internet.
