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!

Great location, and condo was great as well!

  • 4 of 5

We were in town for the Ironman event, and this was the perfect location! Walmart right across the street to get anything needed, tons of restaurants just a few minutes away. The Condo itself was great, furnished very well, and the whole complex was extremely quiet and amenities were nice.

Everything we needed and more!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was had everything we needed and was super close to the beach. The condo overlooked the gulf and the crosswalk to the beach was only a few feet away. After walking up and down the seawall, there were VERY few other places to stay with the same access to the beach. We will absolutely return again.

The condo was supplied all the modern appliances you would expect, but we were pleasantly surprised to find shampoo, conditioner, soap, dish washing soap, and laundry detergent with dryer sheets. There were plenty of incidentals and we did not have to run out for paper towels, etc... To us, it appeared that the Owner cared about our stay. That meant a lot to us.

Highly recommend this condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the condo at the Dawn. Everything was perfect. Very spacious and well maintained. I greatly appreciated the large bedrooms and bathrooms. The view off the balcony was breathtaking. The location of the condo is very close to all the tourist attractions that we took advantage of. We had two grandchildren accompanying us and they throughly enjoyed the condo as well. We plan on returning and hoping to rent same unit.

Thanks for making our vacation a memorable one!

Great ocean view

  • 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.

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.
