About Ivana Gaziova

I moved to Galveston about 10 years ago and I fell in love with it. Its compact size and close proximity to everywhere, the Historic District with galleries, theaters, and fine dining reminds me of small European cities and makes me feel more at home. My son was born here six years ago and there was not a single day that we wouldn't have an idea of what to do. There are many attractions, plus numerous seasonal events that can keep you entertained all year round. I work as a scientist at the University of Texas Medical Branch and I love my morning drive to work on Seawall; I am often greeted by a wonderful sunrise. The island's laid back attitude gives me the feeling of being constantly on vacation and it allows me to relax after a stressful day. I love this place and I believe it is a hidden gem, which has yet to be fully appreciated. I would love to share my love of Galveston with you and help you enjoy it as much as I do. Your satisfaction will be my happiness.

Ivana Gaziova purchased this condo in 2016

Why Ivana Gaziova chose Galveston

In 2014 I have purchased my first property (584467) in The Dawn Galveston Beach Condominiums complex and I couldn't been happier with my choice. Logically, it followed by purchase of my second unit (723070) in 2015. I confirmed my belief that it combines luxury with value and that there is no other place like this one on the island. As last units of this complex have being renovated and fully updated in years 2014 and 2015 I welcomed the opportunity to purchase another condo. Its ground floor location, facing the pool, might be welcomed by many visitors, which do not want to fight stairs several times a day. I have completely refurnished living room and bedroom to provide maximum comfort and luxury to my guests. Plus you are just a few steps from the beach. The complex itself is well maintained and lost in green foliage, which gives it a tropical feel. The units are spacious and absolutely suitable for residential living. Equipped with all you should need for comfortable living . I am proud to invite you to stay in my place and I hope you will feel as comfortable here as you do at your own home.

What makes this condo unique

Located on the Seawall, in close proximity to the main Galveston attractions and just a few minutes from the sandy beach. Green foliage and singing birds gives it relaxing courtyard feel. Pool can be seen from the bedroom, living room and the balcony. Great kitchen with stainless steel appliances. Gated, well-maintained complex with two pools, hot tub, and gym overlooking the seawall/ocean, picnic area and abundance of parking.

What an amazing place right on the Seawall!

My best friend and I stayed here for 2 nights as a getaway weekend. The place was nice and clean. The proximity to the beach is amazing. We will definitely stay here again if we go back to Galveston.

This was our second stay here and it was just as amazing as our first stay. The condo was perfect for our family of 5; we had plenty of room and were very comfortable. I highly recommend staying here and will be back again!

Clean, Comfortable, Convenient

  • 5 of 5

This condo accommodated our family of four very well. The spacious kitchen area was a big bonus. The kids loved the easy access to the adjacent pool. Convenient to the beach and all that the island has to offer. Owner was kind, professional, and responsive. We had a great time!

Owner's Response: I am very happy you enjoyed your stay. Closeness to the pool (directly from the living room) is one of the highlights of this particular condo. You are very welcome to stay with me in any of the three units I offer in Dawn and as returning guest you are eligible for 5% discount.

Not what I was expecting

  • 2 of 5

The condo had a bad musty smell. Even after spraying with air freshener and lighting candles, it still smelled. The bed was smaller than a queen ( although it was comfortable). Many light bulbs were out (only one in kitchen and one in the bathroom worked). Overall, it just did not meet my expectations and the pictures were deceptive.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry that condo didn't meet your expectations. I would be very happy to try to resolve any of your issues, while you were staying in the condo, since you could see that I was very responsive when it came to ourcommunication. We keep spare light bulbs and batteries in the unit. Me and my housekeer live on the island and are able to stop by upon call and provide what is needed. I am particular about the smell and we use Pier Import air refresheners to get rid of any smell, which can dwell after previous guest visit. However, summer is busy and I have guests within one day leaving and arriving and my housekeeping crew has a few hours to get it ready, in addition ground floor, foliage outside and summer heat and humidity might contribute to it. I got in touch with my housekeeper to make sure they pay attention to it and replace non-functional light bulbs. Bedroom set as well living room set comes from Rooms to go, was purchased in 2016 and it was purchased as a queen size (not sure what else to add to it). Everything (except dining set) is 2 or less years old, since I purchased this condo that year. A/C unit, which should help with drying air and getting rid of any unwanted humidity was replaced this spring. I try to keep condo stocked up with quality linens, towels, kitchen utensil and other amenities and since I haven't had any bad review during those past two years (including other sites, where I advertise), I hope this was the only incident and probably not good guest/unit match. I would be happy to offer you any of my other two units during your future stay in Galveston and provide 10% discount (regularly I offer 5% discount to my returning guests).

Newly furnished and updated, spacious condo is part of the The Dawn Galveston Beach Condominiums complex, which is located right on the Seawall, within 15 minutes proximity to all attractions Galveston offers. Over the past several years I have seen Galveston to transform into wonderful holiday destination (and not just for the summer). Next to the over 20 miles long beaches lining the southern part of the island and activities, which belongs to it, you can find plenty of other attractions, which truly can satisfy any visitor. Aquarium, Rainforest and Discovery pyramids, IMAX and other attractions offered by Moody Gardens, can be great refreshment after day/days spent under the hot sun. Pleasure Pier, Palm Beach in Moody Gardens and Schlitterbarn Water Park will excite kids of all ages. Rosenberg Library Children section is designed in ocean theme and offers morning readings for little ones. Galveston Opera house and Island ETC theater offer variety of great shows, which I would suggest to check and book ahead prior to arrival. Almost any night you will find live music of various genres all over the island. Dining is excellent and Galveston truly offers wide selection of different cuisines, where locally caught fresh seafood understandably dominates. Spend fun night in any bar located on Seawall with margarita and fried shrimp basket listening to the life band or on Post office browsing the art galleries during the Artwalk and sipping on the wine and having freshly caught snapper in any Downtown restaurants or just browse the souvenirs shop on The Strand, I guarantee you will enjoy your stay. Since I have been for the past 10 years. There is also lots of weekend/seasonal attractions for which I suggest to check Galveston Calendar of Events.
