About Ivana Gaziova

I moved to Galveston about 9 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 2014

Why Ivana Gaziova chose Texas Gulf Coast

The first time I visited the The Dawn Galveston Beach Condominiums complex was two years ago and I was pleasantly surprised. It combines luxury with value and after a thorough search I can tell there is no other place like this one on the island. When the opportunity to purchase a condo in this complex came up in April 2014, I didn't hesitate. 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 with quality furnishings and appliances. 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. Ocean view from the entire condo and balcony. Unique two story floor plan with lots of space. Gated, well-maintained complex with two pools, hot tub, and gym overlooking the seawall/ocean, picnic area and abundance of parking.

Wonder home away from home

The condo was clean and spacious. The beach was right across the street so the view was awesome and we had so much fun playing at the beach. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful condo, beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely condo! We walked across the street each morning to the beach and came back in the evening to enjoy the pool and hot tub. The owner was very responsive when needed and quickly addressed an air conditioning issue. We will definitely be renting this condo again!

Property was clean, beautiful view from balcony!

  • 4 of 5

The owner is great, we ran into some problems and I reached out to her she responded within 30 minutes to any concerns we had! Condo was clean and had the most amazing view from the loft bedroom and master bedroom. The balcony was great there seagull eggs on the porch so that was awesome to see the birds in and out! Beds were soooooo comfortable! We really enjoyed our stay we will be back

We loved it

  • 4 of 5

We picked the 3rd floor loft because it was so beautiful & we thought the view would be even more beautiful than the 2nd floor view we had the year before, but walking up to the 3rd floor was harder than we thought it would be. That's really the only problem we had with it. We loved it, but our next visit, we'll stay on the 2nd floor instead.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I understand that stairs are not for everyone, however view, high ceilings with open second loft bedroom will make it worth for many guests. I also offer ground one bedroom unit, which might be suitable for those who are not able to take stairs several times a day.

Location

Car: recommended

This newly renovated, 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 8 years. There is also lots of weekend/seasonal attractions for which I suggest to check Galveston Calendar of Events.
