About the property

Pristine Second Floor 2br/2b Unit, 1116 Square Feet, Recently Renovated .

We hope all of our guests can enjoy a very memorable stay in our recently updated Condo! Stainless steel appliances, Corian cookware, granite counter tops throughout, full size washer and dryer, tile flooring in all living and BR areas, large walk in glass shower, and space evoking large full wall mirrors all combine to create a very clean, spacious, convenient and attractive environment! We have enjoyed preparing our Condo to exceed one's expectations when renting this property.

From hand sewn living room darkening curtains, owner made window treatments, pillows, bed throws, welcome baskets, to guest towels folded into animal shapes, generous baskets in each bathroom freshly stocked with facial, body and hair cleaning products in addition to simple first aide items in the guest bathroom, we have made every effort possible to provide a very personable welcome and stay to all of our guests!

Both bedrooms have very large walk in closets, large dressers, night stands and reading lights and state of the art TVs with video. The master bathroom which is attached to the bedroom has a very large walk in glass shower. As of 12/1/2016 the master bedroom now has top of the line Sterns and Foster adjustable King bed!! Just a touch of the button to adjust your head and knee height! The second full bathroom is directly across from the second bedroom and has a sparkling clean full bath tub with shower. Wooden blinds and pleated room darkening shades in both rooms help provide a peaceful night's sleep!

We also have a brand new queen memory foam sleeper sofa, and a single sleeper chair, to allow plenty of options for 7 adult sleepers! The room darkening curtains allow for an environment conducive to a great night's sleep!

High end adjustable King size bed and a plush Queen mattress bed with luxury cooling sheets and plush towels, hypoallergenic downed pillows, room darkening pleated shades, ceiling fans and optional plug in fragrances are a sure guaranty to a wonderful night's sleep! Each room also boasts HD brand new flat screen TVs (32" Magnavox with DVD and a 36" Samsung), with 100 complimentary HD channels via XFinity/Comcast.

Free wifi is available throughout the unit, and guests can relax on our very comfortable living room furniture (including queen sleeper sofa) while taking in the beautiful gulf views or enjoying entertainment from the living room 46" Sony HD TV with DVD player.

Our pantry remains stocked with an array of spices, cooking oils, flour, sugar and often times, fresh bags of cookies or chips. Guests can also enjoy complimentary coffee, flavors and creams and individually wrapped biscotti to boot!! Paper towels, toilet paper and other kitchen food disposable storage wraps/bags are always provided.

Pool towels, beach mats and boogie boards are also available for our guests and are stored in the master bedroom closet. Guests can enjoy beautiful sunrises, sunsets and moonlit ocean views from the balcony while utilizing the four bar height chairs and bistro table. Even the little ones can join in with the four preschool size patio chairs.

The Dawn has a full fitness work out room, strategically located for a fully unobstructed view of the gulf! Two beautiful pools and two hot tubs are also available for all guests to enjoy! A charcoal grill and picnic table are also located adjacent to each pool. MOST IMPORTANTLY, and with huge thanks to The Galveston Parks and Recreation committee, we now have a beautiful 200 meter wide soft sandy beach directly across from The Dawn!

We love coming down to Galveston and hope our condo will help provide a wonderful and memorable vacation for you as well!!

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 Galveston

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!

Second Stay Here - Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay in Galveston. The unit is so very comfortable and has everything you need (including WiFi) for great, great vacation stay. The beach directly across the street was clean and easily accessible. The welcome basket is a great touch - the lemonade is so good. We will be back!

It is a really nice place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was easy to find. On Seawall Blvd., across the street from Walmart. The condo itself has a great location, overlooking the pool. We could sit on the balcony and still keep an eye on the kids. It was very well decorated. The gulf is just across Seawall Blvd., and was easy to come and go to the beach. I would go there again on my next trip to Galveston.

Fabulous vacation!!!! Adults and teens 14-21!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved it! Like I had read in the previous reviews we were set up with everything imagineable! The hospitality of the owners was wonderful! They did have pitcher of lemonade and basket of snacks for us on our arrival! The two bedrooms were very large and the beds were amazing! Especially the master! Everything about our stay was perfect! We WILL be returning and recommend this place to everyone! I wish we could have stayed longer! So chances are next year we will be staying atleast 4 nights if not longer!
