Overview

Galveston Condo Rental Photos and Description

Luxurious 3rd Flr Condo w/Amazing Ocean & Pool View, free wifi, TVs in each room

Located just a mile from the Galveston Convention Center/San Luis Resort, and just 2 miles from the Schlitterbahn Waterpark/Moody Gardens, Sunrise Condo is close to all the big attractions and major shopping centers on the island.

Our condo is part of The Dawn Condominium complex and is privately owned and operated. It has an amazing top-floor view of the ocean and a property pool right off the balcony. It's one of the most picturesque locations on the property. The unit has 825 sq ft of living space with nice high ceilings and a wonderful balcony with two custom-made captain's chairs and table. The unit has a nice king size bed in the master and newly added hardwood flooring. The large sleeper sofa has a very comfortable Queen mattress and topper that can easily sleep 2. Blackout curtains are installed in both rooms to block the morning sun for late sleepers.

Sunrise comes fully equipped with two large wall mounted smart TVs (one in the living room, one in the bedroom), Comcast HD cable service, free WiFi Internet, and Internet streaming of music and video from the popular sources such as Pandora, Amazon, and Netflix) in all rooms. There's also a full size clothes washer/dryer in the utility room next to the kitchen, all modern stainless steel appliances, and a large capacity ice-maker in the refrigerator/freezer.

Free gated private parking is located right in front of the condo. There are no keys to pickup or to keep track of, making check-in/check-out very easy. The Dawn is a fully gated community and uses key codes to access all its amenities.

No Deposit Required, $65 cleaning fee

Please note- This condo is a 3rd floor unit with staircase access only, but the unobstructed view of the Gulf of Mexico is worth the couple of steps! (2 flights only)

About Richard Daughtery

Married 20 years live in Kingwood, TX (an hour an d a half from Galveston. We have a son and a daughter that are fully grown now and most recently- a grandson.

Richard Daughtery purchased this condo in 2013

Why Richard Daughtery chose Galveston

The thing that we love about our location on the island is its beautiful view of the ocean and how close it is to all of Galveston's major shopping areas on the West End. We also like being on the top floor of our 3 story unit building. In the morning we can see the beautiful sunrises over the ocean and hear the waves with an awesome pool in the foreground. In the evening we can watch the sun set on the breezeway balcony on the front side of the unit and enjoy the shade of the surrounding palm trees in front of the balcony.

Another great thing about this location within The Dawn Condominium complex is it's quietness. We are set back about 100ft from all the hustle and bussle of the Seawall yet we have a very nice view of it right off our balcony.

What makes this condo unique

Close enough to the beach to hear the surf, Free Wifi, Free Internet Streaming for Online movies and music providers, Top floor unit gives you a great view of clubhouse pool and the beach. See the sunrise on the back patio with your coffee and the sunset with your favorite adult beverage on the front balcony.

Paradise By the Gulf

  • 5 of 5
We very much enjoyed our stay in Galveston. The condo is exactly how you see it. We did have trouble with their WiFi but I was able to get on the open WiFi of The Dawn so could still check my emails and do some work late in the evening. We very much enjoyed watching our Royals in the World Series on the big screen TV, the bed was extremely comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. It was nice to have a washer and dryer and not have to drag home a week's worth of dirty laundry. Walmart is next door and very handy. Our dogs enjoyed laying on the balcony and we ate all our meals out there enjoying the view of the Gulf. The only downfall is the two flights of stairs but it kept us in shape for all the walking on the Seawall. We hope to return some day!

Our October Adventure

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful experience at The Dawn Condominium - Sunrise Condo. The photos were a perfect representation; it was clean, elegant, and well-maintained. The owner answered my queries before we arrived, and I even had a conversation with the gentleman who managed the condo for the owner. He, as well, was very polite and helpful. We hope to return again soon. The view of the Gulf and the pods of pelicans was glorious to behold. We rode the ferry, did some investigating of ancestors' final resting places, ate too much (Benno's, Shrimp & Stuff, Mario's, Gaido's, The Black Pearl, Salsa's) at wonderful restaurants, and walked the Strand remembering how things were when we grew up on the Island. We walked along the Seawall with our dachshund, who enjoyed being with us and not left at the kennel!

Great Place to Stay in Galveston

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in Galveston and would highly recommend this condo. The listing description was accurate and photos reflected the rental's appearance. It was clean and well-maintained. The location was close to Moody Garden's as well as Pleasure Pier and many, many restaurants.

Our only disappointment was in the amount of seaweed on the beaches and the dead seaweed smell but that wasn't something the owners could do anything about.

If we ever have an opportunity to visit Galveston again, we will definitely choose this vacation rental again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for appreciating the little things about the condo that we feel are important too. The new King Size bed that was just added and a new dishwasher are two of our latest enhancements.

As for all the seaweed this year you're right it can be a little unpleasant along the Seawall. But I love this sign Galveston has out there stating "Please pardon the mess while Nature rebuilds our beaches." And it's true, the seaweed has acted like a magnet on the beaches in front of the condo. We have about 30 ft of extra beach now. So come back soon when the seaweed is all beach sand.

Lovely, Thoughtfully Prepared Condo

  • 5 of 5
The condo is beautifully decorated…lovely high end details + charming touches that give it personality. I was impressed with the owners’ thoughtfulness to have items there waiting for us, such as: coffee, creamer,spices, paper products, laundry detergent, body wash, shampoo, etc. There were even a couple of pool floats in the closet + recommendations in the kitchen in case of jellyfish sting, etc. Some other condos will not provide you with this level of detail. And, of course, it was immaculate too!!
I spent the 1st day relaxing & reading on the balcony in 1 of those wonderful captain’s chairs. This was August in Texas but there was enough ocean breeze & shade on the balcony that I didn’t need air-conditioning. There were also no mosquitos to contend with so I was very happy. My husband was extremely happy with the large flat screen TVs!!
The restaurants we tried were Salsas, The Black Pearl & Mario’s Italian/Seafood. The 1st two were good but Mario’s was outstanding!!!! Their “Mixed Seafood Grill” was wonderful.
We enjoyed our stay very much. Thank you!!!

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed the condo as much as we do when we get the chance to be there. Of course I wasn't allowed to do any of the decorating but my wife I must say has pretty good taste and doesn't do anything half way. It's our home away from home (Kingwood Tx) when we're down there.

We've been to all the restaurants that you mentioned and really like those too. I would add the Gumbo Bar and the Saltwater Grill downtown on Post Office St. The Tremont Hotel on the same street has a very nice rooftop open air bar/grill where you can see the whole city in all directions. Awesome place to watch the sunset.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
Excellent condo. Very nicely decorated. Everything we needed was provided. The view from the balcony was fantastic. We loved having coffee each morning in the "big chairs". The big TV in the living room and the bedroom were an unexpected plus. We loved it!

Owner's Response: Thank you for noticing all the little things that we've added. Note- for your next stay with us we've just upgraded the bedroom with a new king-size bed to better enjoy the wall mounted flat screen TV in that room.
