The pfopefrty managef did nogt return my gel. calls. I ndvefr did get to watch TV WX/news, because I did not understand how to get on Comcast's Xfinity. We have At&T Uvese. I wanted to let him know, also, that the left-sliding door had a defect and would not, completely, close, which allowed air passage. We thought it would hae been well for your group to leave a box of facial-tissues and a roll of toilet tissues in each bathroom. So, we bought ours and took them with us upon leaving. We had difficulty w/combination the door key box! It is doubtful that we will return to your property, but we enjoyed our stay. We left some ice cream in the freezer for the cleaning staff.

Really nice place. Enjoyed the view and the convenience to every place we wanted to go.

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with the condo. It was clean and well stocked. And the furnishings and decor were classy. We had plenty of room for 4 people. It was convenient to all the places we wanted to go: fishing, beach walking, and the wedding and reception venue.

Great place in Galveston!

  • 5 of 5

I had the great opportunity to stay in Galveston for 3 days. What I can say about this property is it has a fantastic location right on the Seawall, close to restaurants and Pier. The condos was look and feel were perfect, good size, well appointed with beach decoration. Beds were very comfortable, beautiful view from the balcony (great place to have wine and enjoy the Gulf) the only critiques I would give is the key box was difficult to open, I bumped the glass table in the living room a few times (hard to see the edge) lastly the water pressure was a little weak in the Master shower for me. But everything else was perfect, what an amazing property!! I would definitely book this property again. I highly recommend this rental!

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.
