“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

“Pet and Peoples Paradise at Condo #213”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2015

WOW! What a wonderful stay we had and our 2 spoiled rotten dogs did too. They loved the convenience of walking off the patio at 2 a.m. and getting their middle of the night potty breaks....ok, this was more of a convenience for me, but it was awesome and super handy. The lower level view of the ocean was amazing and I loved being able to sit in the oversized recliner in the a/c and admire it from sliding door glass without sweating. The property is very quiet and you feel like you're the noisy one. Very roomy closet and plenty of room throughout to move around. Everything you need for cooking a meal or just a snack. Lots of lighting and very warm tones make it very pleasant to just kick back and relax after a hot day at the beach. Very Roomy throughout and the closet space was great. All you need is your clothes and your food and you're set for a weekend, a week, or even a month. Wal-Mart is walking distance right across the street and the Valero on the corner makes your fill up quick and easy. Fishing piers, some restaurants, nail salons, etc... are all within walking distance and I think there's even a beach area within walking distance. You're close to everything, just on the edge of the chaos, so when it's time for bed, you can enjoy a nice peaceful sleep. We have stayed at The Dawns 3 times now and Unit 213 has been our favorite. Hope you select it for your next vacation, you won't be disappointed for the money and the conveniences it has to offer. Terri was awesome to work with and certainly recommend using her for all your rental needs.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much, Holly! It was a pleasure working with you and I'm so glad you all had such a wonderful time while in Galveston! I appreciate all the lovely words! Thank you, Teri The Dawn 213

“THE DAWN 213”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2015

We were looking for a place where we could bring our dog with us as well as our daughter and granddaughter. Perfect spot! Had everything we needed, place for the dog to go outside right off of the patio. Pools were great! Will definitely book again. Teri was wonderful to deal with and gave us all of the info we needed. Condo is located in a great spot.

Owner's reply: Thank you, Mary! I'm glad you guys had a wonderful time while in Galveston!

“"Best Vacation Ever"”

Reviewed 16 Jun 2015

My daughter claimed it as the "best vacation ever". The weather was great; the city of Galveston had so much to do with the kids, plus the condo was perfect. The condo had everything you would need, it was big enough for our two kids (7 & 3) to play inside, and had access to the outside which was a big plus. We plan on coming back next year at the same time, and I will be telling everyone at my office about this trip and this condo.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much, Franco! I'm so glad you and your family had such a wonderful time! We'll see you next year!

“Excellent Stay”

Reviewed 14 Jun 2015

We really enjoyed our stay at The Dawn. It felt like we were right at home. The condo had everything that you could need inside of it. The location was very convienient to grocery stores and places for entertainment and fun. Will recommend The Dawn to anyone. Teri the owner, was very helpful when anything was needed.

Owner's reply: Thank you, Eric! I'm so glad you guys had such a wonderful time!
