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 Galveston
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.

Just a quick getaway
Our stay was awesome!! Very nice condo with beach view. Pleasure pier wasn’t too far with some amazing restaurants nearby as well.
Hot mess express
We got into town early so I called the housekeeper to see if we could possibly check in early. She was very kind and said she would send the cleaners over to do our condo first and that she would let them know we would be there at noon. We show up at noon and when we walk in the smell of urine was over powering. The cleaning lady said something happened to the toilet and they were trying to fix it. Things happen, we understand that. We go into the master bedroom because they were already finished in that room. About 30 minutes later they said they were finished and told us if we had any issues with the toilet to call Kimberly. Low & behold...the toilet wouldn’t flush. Kimberly was notified and she came over and fixed the toilet for about an hour. Next, we notice something odd on the shower curtain. It was a pretty large stain, couldn’t have been missed...- makeup or something. Then we find a pillow on the master bed with someone’s stained blood on it. Okay ew. After being there for a few hours and the air kicking on and off, the place smelled so bad of weed. Of course that isn’t the owners fault, but annoying since I was already very annoyed with the lack of care for cleanliness. The vent covers were covered in mildew. I’m talking it looked like they were caked in dust.
Had we known we would get a less than clean room we wouldn’t have asked to check in early. There were only two towels in the whole unit and our reservation said 5 people would be staying. It was just a big mess from the get go. I will not stay there again. Beware. The owner and housekeeper will make excuse after excuse for why things happened and it’ll be your fault for checking in early. When we check into a room early we don’t expect less service from the housekeeper. That’s my biggest complaint. I spent more time on the phone explaining myself than I was able to spend with my family.
We enjoyed ourselves.....
I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Not sure why only 3 stars.
Very nice condo! Amazing view! Convenient to the beach and all of the Galveston attractions.
We had a great time and really enjoyed the condo!
Great family Visit
We had a great visit! The condo was clean and in a great location. The furniture in the living room has been updated from the current listing pictures but it is still nice and functional. We enjoyed the easy access to the beach and the pool was relaxing. If I had any recommendations it would be to maybe have a few extra towels, since we stayed for 4 days I needed to run a quick load of laundry since we ran out, which was not a major problem because there was a washer and dryer ion the unit. Thank you for allowing us to use your condo!
We stayed here for one night. It was a quick stay but a good one! Ivana was very kind and in great communication with us. The house has GREAT views of the ocean. One thing to just be aware of is that there arent any elevators. Other than that, our stay in Ivana's condo was absolutely wonderful.
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.
