“Best spot in Galveston”

Reviewed 26 Oct 2017

Just when I thought I would have to stay home in the dog kennel, my humans found this lovely pet-friendly Galveston condo right across the street from the ocean. They said everything was perfect and exceeded expectations. Best of all, the dog walk was part of the beautifully manicured lawns and landscaping ... definitely the nicest dog area ever. The cool October weather allowed me to go everywhere with my humans and wait in the car, including their favorite restaurant, nearby Jimmy's. Thank you, Teri, for sharing your place with four-legged visitors. I hope to come back. Sheba

Owner's reply: Thank you for the wonderful review, we enjoyed having you and appreciate you staying with us! You guys were great and we welcome you anytime. Thank you, Teri The Dawn 213

“GREAT Beach Condo & Pet Friendly too! WE WILL BE BACK :)”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2017

This is a lovely condo, and you couldn't ask for a better view of the beach! We really enjoyed our stay & plan on returning for sure! The condo was well equipped, and all the furniture was beautiful & comfortable. Also Loved that it's a gated community.. The grounds are well manicured, and the two pools are amazing.. So close to everything in Galveston. Teri, the owner, is so accomodating & friendly, and I will refer this condo to all my close friends!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much, Vivian! It was a pleasure having your family & fur babies and we look forward to seeing you again! Teri The Dawn 213

Condo was clean, had everything we needed. Location was great. Good view of the gulf. My family had a wonderful time here. We plan to return. Owner, Teri was a pleasure to work with, very responsive to emails. Thanks.

Owner's reply: Thank you, Brad, for all the kind words! We appreciate you choosing The Dawn 213 and it was a pleasure having you stay with us. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

“Awesome beachfront condo!”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2017

Teri's condo was everything we needed and our little dog loved it too! So nice to be able to easily take our dog right off the porch and onto the grass. And you can't get tired of looking straight out at the gulf. This unit is also near a crosswalk to get to the beach, which is much safer than darting across the street. Everything is close...shopping, restaurants and the convention center is just a mile away. When we come back for future events at the convention center, we'll be sure to check Teri's schedule and, hopefully, stay here again.

Owner's reply: Thank you, Joe! I'm SO glad your family & 4-legged family member had a wonderful trip & congratulations on the great job your daughter did at dance competition! Hope to see you guys again sometime (with a "repeat renter discount"). Thank you, Teri The Dawn 213

“Great Mini-Vacation”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2016

We were very fortunate to have discovered Dawn 213 for our first mini-vacation in Galveston. The condo is clean, comfortable, in a convenient location and pet friendly. Beach access is just across the street so each day it only took a few minutes to find our own spot on the uncrowded beach and begin enjoying the ocean sights and sounds - very relaxing. The large fenced grassy area is immediately outside the patio which made it easy to take our 4-legged grandkids outside for their potty breaks. Teri is pleasant, professional, and easy to work with. She answered all of our questions and was genuinely interested in making sure our stay was enjoyable. The entire experience was great for us and we definitely plan to return.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the kind review! It was my pleasure working with you two.

“So Very Nice!!!”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2016

This condo is a beauty! The newly renovated kitchen and shower spoiled me immediately and made me not want to leave it. The owner is so friendly and welcoming also. And the fact that it's pet friendly was a huge plus to us! We also loved the huge pool on the grounds as well. If we decide to return to Galveston, we'd would definitely stay here again.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much & I am so glad you had a wonderful time!

“Wonderful Stay AGAIN!”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2016

I'll keep this review shorter than last year's (see below from July 14, 2015), but it is an awesome Condo and this year they have a beach area right across the street. Teri continues to be amazing and the condo has all the amenities you need. The only negative thing I can find to speak about is the patio door seems to be a challenge to open once outside- and may just need a slight adjustment to correct this. I did not report it during our stay, but based on the excellent condition of the Condo I'm betting it'll be taken care of before I next visit. I certainly recommend this Condo for anyone with pets and a desire to sit outside and drink your morning coffee while viewing the seaside! So relaxing and comfortable with a homey feel to it!

Owner's reply: Thank you, Holly! It's always a pleasure having you. Teri

This property is very well kept, clean and in the perfect location! It has a great view of the beach, but also is steps away from a wonderful pool! The layout of the condo was pefect for my family of four and the bed was comfortable! Make sure you visit Mosquito cafe for wonderful food and the Sunflower Bakery and Cafe for a great breakfast!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much, Erica, and so glad you guys had such a great time!


Reviewed 28 Jun 2016

My family and I had a great time! It was very clean and had everything you needed with an easy access to the beach. We were even able to bring our two pups who loved running in the fenced backyard. We will definitely be staying there again!!! Thanks Teri!!

Owner's reply: Thank you, Jocelyn. I'm so glad you guys had a wonderful time! Teri

“Another Great Vacation”

Reviewed 21 Jun 2016

We just finished our second and now annual family vacation to Galveston, and The Dawn 213. All I can is it was great once again. We decided to stay a full week this year, which helped with summer camp, and we had perfect weather. The condo was great again, had everything we needed, and Teri was great to work with when we had issues. I have the dates ready for next year and can’t wait to go back.

Owner's reply: Thank you, Franco! As always, it was such a pleasure to have you and your family! Look forward to seeing you next year! Thank you, Teri The Dawn 213
