About John & Lisa Kendall - Owners

We live in central Texas and love to visit Galveston. My wife grew up in Louisiana and vacationed in Galveston as a child. We love getting out in nature, watching birds, and going to all of the great beaches. We also visit the historical spots around town and love to shop on the Strand.

John & Lisa Kendall - Owners purchased this condo in 2011

Why John & Lisa Kendall - Owners chose Galveston

We chose this condo because of its great location. The incredible views from the living room, bedrooms, and balcony are amazing in the mornings and especially during a full moon. We love watching the pelicans, gulls, and occasional frigate bird. When we watched a pod of dolphins feeding in front of our unit, we knew this was the right property for us. The condo units at The Dawn are huge (and beautiful!) compared to most we saw on the Seawall.

What makes this condo unique

The grounds here have a tropical flair and are well maintained. The pools and hot tub are fabulous. The onsite fitness room is in the next building and includes weight equipment, free weights, elliptical, and recumbent bikes.

Traffic never stops, can't even enjoy ocean front

  • 3 of 5

It was just like the picture, clean and beautiful. But what the reviews don't tell you, is with it being right on the seawall, that it is anything but peaceful. It is hard to sleep with all the traffic that never stops. along with the ppl above you sounding like they are coming through the ceiling. Cute place, but would not go back to this location. We went for a relaxing vacation and was not able to relax with this location

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear about your recent stay during Memorial weekend. Traffic on Galveston’s seawall can get busy, especially on holidays, when everyone wants to be on the island. Our windows are double paned and we have noise/light blocking curtains in our bedrooms. We just ordered sound machines for the bedrooms to drown out the traffic during the busy times. The weekend you visited was especially miserable (throughout TX) because of the severe thunderstorms. It’s no fun to plan a weekend on the coast and have to be stuck inside! Thank you for your feedback and the opportunity to improve our vacation home.

Galveston Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We took our grandson and a friend over spring break. The condo was immaculate and very comfortable. The boys enjoyed both swimming in the gulf and the pool at the condo. I enjoyed sitting on the balcony and gazing out at the water – I look forward to coming back again!

Owner's Response: Sitting on the balcony with a front row view of the activities in the gulf waters (watching pelicans diving, dolphins feeding, fishing & shrimping boats) is one of my favorite ways to relax when I am at the condo. I am happy to hear about your trip! Thank you so much for your review.

Great family getaway from a harsh Michigan Winter!

  • 5 of 5

My son, husband and I came here in mid-Feb to escape negative temperatures in Michigan. We really enjoyed our stay! The condo was as is appears to be in the photos and our stay was seemless. We would definitely stay here again!

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

John and Lisa have a great property at a great location. The condo was exactly as advertised and pictured and it accommodated 5 adults and one infant very nicely. My wife and I enjoyed a vigorous morning walk each day along the seawall where the view is spectacular. There's a nice public beach area north of Pleasure Pier where one can walk along the beach regardless of the tide condition. Many great restaurants in the area ... one we liked in particular was the Black Pearl Oyster Bar. We really enjoyed our time there and would highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: It's fun to explore Galveston in the off season. I'm going to have to try the Black Pearl Oyster Bar. Of the many wonderful places to eat, that's one that I haven't tried yet. Thanks for the restaurant suggestion and your review!

A Great Option for Galveston

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as pictured and promoted. It's a great location on the sea wall, a nice (and quiet) complex, and a spacious two bedroom condo that is very well maintained. The gulf view from the balcony is perfect, and the private owners are responsive and professional. This condo is a wonderful option for a Galveston stay. I highly recommend it.

Nice Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my family for a weekend event in Galveston. This is a beautiful condo with all the amenities of home. The unit is exactly as pictured in the photos. It is also located next to the pool and picnic area and is located on the seawall with a beautiful view of the ocean. The complex is very well maintained with beautifully landscaped areas. It is also located next to Walmart and many nice restaurants. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Located directly on the Seawall, this condo is 5 minutes away from Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens, and all the Seawall beach attractions. With amazing gulf water views from the living room and master bedroom, and a wonderful view of the lagoon pool in the 2nd bedroom, you may never leave the gated property! Located near the wonderful West End public beaches but close to lots of attractions and allowing easy access to downtown and the Strand's dining, shopping, and entertainment district. Galveston is a rich cultural center with lots of festivals and activities including Mardi Gras celebrations, an annual Bike rally, Feather Fest, and Dicken's on the Strand. Many tours of the island are available including boat tours, birding tours, and some great historical tours in the city as well. This unit is conveniently located very near Walmart and other grocery stores for your convenience.
