About the property

A wonderful condo situated in a gated community that comfortably sleeps 4 adults

This is an amazing up to date gated 1st floor 1 bedroom condo (Queen size bed) that also comes with a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. It has a key less entry, granite counter tops, tile floors throughout, stainless appliances, 32" flat screen with cable in bedroom, 42' flat screen with cable, dvd player & stereo in living room, full size refrigerator, microwave, oven, dishwasher, full size w/d, walk in tile shower, hair dryer, coffee pot, complete kitchen utensils, plates, pots and pans for 4, full linen and bath towels. This has pretty much everything you would have at home. This condo is steps to the seawall, beach and the pool which has a hot tub and bbq grills. It is within 3 miles to all attractions. Note this is not an ocean view and I love animals but unfortunately pets and are not allowed in the unit due to the bylaws of my HOA. This condo is a lot bigger (810 sq. feet), cleaner and cheaper than most hotels and condos in Galveston. Please note that **SMOKING IN THE UNIT IS NOT ALLOWED** please use patio.

About Bill Morrison

We both live and work here on the island. I grew up in the southern part of Houston and when I was younger I made it to Galveston as much as I could. I always dreamed of living here and now it is a reality. I originally bought the condo to live in and lived there for about 9 months. I now live about 1.5 miles away from the condo and stay there quite regularly. I am readily available to answer any questions you may have and assist you in anyway so that your time will be enjoyable.

Bill Morrison purchased this condo in 2013

Why Bill Morrison chose Gulf Coast

I have furnished this place with all new items so that you can feel just like you are at home. I think everything you would have at home you will find here except food, beverages and beach towels. I have visited several different condos and hotels on the island and I must say this one is very nice, up to date and located on a very nice well manicured property. I will more than likely beat any price of any hotel on the island that is comparable to the condo. Even though it is not waterfront you will enjoy the central location to attractions, property grounds (which are extremely clean), and steps to the pool and beach area (brand new beach built right across the street). You are literally 25 steps from the pool and hot tub and another 40 steps you are up on the seawall and beach. This is a gated community and there are some full time residents here and I have yet to meet a stranger here. I hope you plan to visit, I will do my best to make your time here perfect. I do all of the cleaning and I make 100% sure that the condo is spotless before your arrival.

What makes this condo unique

There is a newly renovated beach directly across from the complex (largest beach on the seawall). No parking fees, no beach access fees and no driving, just walk across the street. Centrally located to all that Galveston has to offer. Beautiful pool with Hot Tub too!

Short and Sweet Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our quick get away to the coast although the weather was not great. We were able to eat at the condo for all of our meals (except one) and everything we needed was available in the condo. Bill's recommendation for dinner out one night was great. Bill was very thorough with information about the condo and responded quickly when we had a question. The walk to the beach was fairly easy even while carrying several things. Although there was not a wifi connection it was a blessing since my children were off of their tablets and we were able to enjoy a family game of cards in the living room while it was raining one day. The condo was clean and we took advantage of the washer and dryer to avoid stains on my children's clothes! We will be contacting Bill again when we make our way back to Galveston.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I just stayed in Bill's condo for four days with my two kids! We loved it! Bill is super attentive. This was the first time I have booked through VRBO, and I am very impressed! The booking was easy, Bill called right away and then e-mailed me the necessary information. He also texted me the directions to the unit and since it is in a gated community told me what I needed to do to get in. The condo is right across the street from the beach, and there is a large pool and hot tub right outside the door! The best part for me was having a full size washer and dryer and stocked kitchen. Eating out gets expensive especially with kids who don't eat all of their food, so it was convenient to have breakfast and lunch at the condo. Finally, it was super clean! I have become picky about cleanliness, and do not particularly like hotels any longer. I felt like I was in my own home which was great! Thank you!!!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I decided to take my mother and daughter on a last minute trip during Memorial Day weekend. We booked the condo a few days before going. Bill provided immediate response to my inquiry and was very helpful in providing all the information needed to ensure we had a relaxing stay. Although the condo is not facing the ocean, it is steps away from the beautiful pool and a few more steps away from the beach. The beach in front of the condo is a newly developed area of beach (Babe's Beach). It was not congested at all and well maintained. It is on the first floor and we were able to pull directly in front of the condo which made it extremely easy to load and unload our stuff. The condo was clean and fully equipped. Bill went over and beyond to make sure that our stay was comfortable! I highly recommend this condo if you are looking for a place that is quiet, accessible to the beach, and not overly crowded.

Cozy 1 bedroom condo with sleeper sofa on Seawall

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay at this condo for my trip to Galveston for Ironman 70.3. The condo was only two miles from Moody Garden where the race was held. The condo was in the Dawn Condominiums. I was able to park right next to the condo and was just steps away from the condo to unload my bike and triathlon gear for the race. I didn't have to carry all my stuff up flights of stairs like some of the condos that were on the second or third floor. The condo had a comfortable queen bed and sleeper sofa. It also had a nice kitchen with refrigerator, microwave, and stove which was ideal for race because I had to get up very early for the race. The restroom was very nice with large step in shower. The living room had a large TV. The price was very reasonable. The condo was very clean and well maintained. The owner was very helpful and was easy to contact. I would recommend this condo to friends and family. There were lots of restaurants nearby. We went to Marios Italian Restaurant Seawall. It was very good. Note: Condo does not face the ocean and no WiFi.

The condo itself does not face the ocean or beach, however the condo complex is located directly across the street from the beach. No driving, no paying for parking or no paying to enter the beach! Just simply walk across the street and you will be at one of the largest beaches along the seawall. There are many bars and restaurants. This condo is only 1 mile from Schlitterbaun and Moody Gardens and about 2 miles from Pleasure Pier. The strand is about 3 miles away. The seawall and the strand area have numerous bars and restaurants. Favs: The Spot, The Gumbo Bar, Mollys, O'Mallys, Murphy's, Patrick's, Poop Deck, Tortugas, Fish Tales, Salt Grass, Fuddruckers just to name a few. UBER is now offered on the Island!
