About Eileen Benvegnu

We began listing our Condo in June of 2015 as a vacation rental and have enjoyed working with every one of our guests! We manage the property ourselves and being a neat freak and a former self employed cleaning lady in my HS and college years, I take much pride in maintaining a very clean condo! I love to entertain in my home and do my very best to provide a welcoming and enjoyable stay for all of our guests!

Eileen Benvegnu purchased this condo in 2010

Why Eileen Benvegnu chose Gulf Coast

Our Condo boasts one of the most beautiful views and locations of the Dawn Complex. Being a southern most corner unit, our balcony, bedroom and living room allow for unobstructed views of both the lush lagoon pool, hot tub and the gulf! Because our building is not one of the units located just 20 feet from the very busy Seawall Boulevard, our guests are not encumbered with the barrage of noisy traffic. The Dawn two bedroom units are also one of the bigger condominiums located on Galveston's Seawall!

What makes this condo unique

Our guests can enjoy a sampling of Starbucks coffees, flavors and complimentary biscotti! We enjoy preparing our Condo for our tenants in hopes that the added little touches will provide extra comforts and conveniences!

A Great Place to Stay While Visiting Galveston!

  • 5 of 5

This condo worked out perfectly for us, 4 adults. We wanted to visit Galveston before taking a cruise. The unit is very close to the beach and easy access to the restaurants. Eileen and Tony's unit is very well supplied and comfortable. It was such a treat to have cold lemonade and a goodie basket waiting for us. We'd book again, the next time we're in Galveston!

Excellent condo/location

  • 5 of 5

The owner of this condo goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and right at home. The location along the seawall is perfect. The pools were immaculate and not too crowded, and plenty of nice lounge chairs. The landscaping and grounds at this complex are also very nice. I am super picky about where I stay and this place exceeded my expectations.

Perfection! Great location, fantastic view of the ocean and fabulous owners!!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to be able to spend 4 fabulous months in this beautifully decorated condo on the seawall in Galveston. Eileen and Tony are the most gracious hosts and made certain our stay was amazing. From the lovely welcome basket of locally roasted coffee to the softest sheets on the bed, there was no detail overlooked. The condo is located near all of the fabulous restaurants and attractions yet not so close as to hinder your ability to enjoy the tranquility of the condo itself. We would highly recommend staying at Eileen and Tony's home away from home! Thank you so much for sharing this special place with us. We will be back!!

Galveston Beach Weekend October 21, 2016

  • 4 of 5

The entire family really enjoyed our beach weekend at Eileen's condo. The decor is very well done, the beds comfortable, the bathrooms and kitchen spacious and modern. Eileen adds personal touches of gift baskets in the living room and bathrooms, and a pitcher of lemonade int he fridge. Very nice. The view from the balcony is perfect, ocean on one side and pool area on the other. A short walk across the street to the beach which is clean and recently built up. Our grandson (3.5 yr old) loved running around the beach like a crazy person. The pool/hot tub areas are very well kept and we spent quite a bit of time lounging by the pool. We will definitely stay again! Thank you Eileen :)
