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.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I am a retired real estate professional, having moved back to the Texas area, after living in Mexico for 10 years. I was born and raised in Houston, and happy to be back with family and friends, after being gone for so long.

Why the Owner Chose Galveston, TX, USA:
After living by the sea for many years, I realized that I would miss the wonderful, calming sounds of the ocean, so owning this condo on the ocean is the next best thing! I hope you enjoy it, as much as I do, as an owner.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I immediately fell in love with this condo, after walking inside, and seeing the beautiful ocean view from the balcony, and the beautiful luxury and modern furnishings that were included in the condominium. Complex is very close to all the tourist attractions, as well as conveniently located to all the best restaurants in the area. We promise to make your stay a truly wonderful experience!
