Galveston Condo Rental Photos and Description

Luxurious 3rd Flr Condo w/Amazing Beach & 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 adults. 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!

Cancellation Policy - If you must cancel, please do so 30 days prior to your arrival date. If the reservation is NOT canceled before the 30 day time frame, there will be no refund.

We do not advertise on Craigslist or Tansler! We also do not accept cashiers checks or personal checks.

About Richard D - Property Manager

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 D - Property Manager purchased this condo in 2013

Why Richard D - Property Manager chose Texas Gulf Coast

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.

Perfect 🇺🇸❤️❤️

  • 5 of 5

After a 10 hour flight and hour and half drive to The Dawn , it was well worth it.

Walking into the apartment was homely feeling.

The photos do not do the place justice. The apartment was spotless clean and we looked as we are fussy. Everything was clean from room to room, we could not fault it. The kitchen has everything you could need, except a kettle for us Brits. Nice to see that basics left from previous people.. The bedroom has the best comfortable bed I have ever slept in and so big. The bathroom is well equipped even with a hairdryer and a lovey touch that the owners leave basics, hair shampoo, conditioner and body wash. And enough towels to keep you going. Sitting out on the balcony overlooking the pool and sea was heaven I could have stayed there forever. The pool was fabulous and never busy.

I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone, it's homely, clean and welcoming without been over the top. 10/10 for us both.

Perfect spot for vacationing!

We enjoyed our stay in Galveston, Tx and found your condo to be perfect. My husband and I found it to be very cozy and felt like home for the week we stayed there.

Galveston Rain or Shine

  • 4 of 5

The condo had beautiful furnishings and was well stocked for cooking and eating-in. Nice patio for rainy days of which we had many. The only disappointment was the lack of a DVD player or Netflix access in the living room as mentioned in the owner's description. This was only an issue because of the several rainy days where we couldn't go to the pool or down to the beach. Overall, we had a great stay.

This was our first condo we had rented on the island. Very nice and clean. Good view from the balcony of the ocean. The owner and the property manager responded to my concerns very quickly.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice little getaway with our young baby boy to this condo. Great location (within walking distance to the beach across the street). Wal-Mart directly beside the gated community. Pleasure Pier, Stewart Beach, and many restaurants and shops within a very short drive down the Seawall. Downtown- Strand District (where the cruise ships depart from) is also not a very far drive at all. The condo itself is simple and very nice & classy. Plenty of space for a small family. Great balcony with view of the Gulf, and directly over one of the pools. A/C was outstanding, as was the kitchen and appliances. Very comfortable bed and living room sofa and chairs. The only issue is that this is a 3rd floor unit with no elevator, (perhaps the overall property management would need to install elevators), but I'm not sure if this is anything that the individual owners could accomplish on their own? But this was not an issue for us, but may be for some older patrons or those with disabilities. Overall, a wonderful stay in a relaxing beach town!

Nice getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Sunrise Condo to be near my daughter at camp (rather than drive back to Dallas). I own up to being pretty high maintenance and have high expectations. With that said, the condo is exactly as it appears in the photos, clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. It was close to many activities as well as shopping, and getting to the beach was easy. The kitchen had everything we needed, including kids' cups and some utensils for my 3 year old. :-) Tammy and Richard were timely in responses and very helpful. We had no trouble (after I carefully read instructions) getting in and out of the property and condo. The condo is a good was me, my mother-in-law, and my 3 year old and we were not on top of each other. The bed and foldout were comfortable (if you can say that sleeping with a 3 year old is comfortable :-). Our favorite activities were sitting on the balcony in the morning in the cool captain's chairs and walking along the seawall every night.

Only glitches for us were: climbing the stairs...this was a bit tedious for my mother-in-law and three year old, but we enjoyed the view from the balcony. The main pool was closed our first full day for cleaning but open the rest of the time and blissfully uncrowded each time we were there. The only recommendation I would make is for the TV instructions to be updated. This is not a bad thing as the living room TV had obviously be upgraded, but the instructions did not reflect the upgrade. :-) In all honesty, this was the only discrepancy I noticed in the instructions given by Tammy as everything else was pretty awesome. She even checked in with me to make sure we had found a lost iphone.

If we go back to Galveston, we would definitely stay here again. The Dawn is a nice property and the owners know what they are doing!
