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 walking the beaches. We also visit the historical spots around town and love to shop on the Strand. There are so many places to see and fun things to do in Galveston that we always look forward to our next visit. We love sharing our vacation home with you!

John & Lisa Kendall - Owners purchased this condo in 2011

Why John & Lisa Kendall - Owners chose Texas Gulf Coast

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 from our balcony. When we watched a pod of dolphins feeding in front of our unit, we knew this was the right property for us. (Watch for them!) The condo units at The Dawn are roomy, updated, and beautiful compared to most we visited on the Seawall.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo has designated Wi-Fi (free) for our guests. The grounds here have a tropical flair and are well maintained. The property is gated with two walk up gates on the Seawall Blvd and a drive up gate on 69th Street. (Codes provided prior to check-in.)Our property is close, minutes away, to all major attractions! Our guests love the two swimming pools. The BBQ area is conveniently located in front of the lagoon pool. The onsite fitness room is in the next building and includes weight equipment, free weights, elliptical, and recumbent bikes.

Beautiful and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely and spacious condo which my family of five (three kids aged 8-14) greatly enjoyed. It was nicely decorated and had all the necessary items for our stay. The location was extremely convenient as the pool and ocean were both within a short walk. We would definitely want to stay here again during a future Galveston trip.

AWESOME CONDO!

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to say thank you! Your condo is in the best location! Look out and enjoy the waves, steps away from the pool! We really appreciated how much it feels like a true home. So many amenities in the kitchen with lots of dishes, pots and pans, etc. And it was so nice to have books, dvds, and pool and beach toys for our use. Thank you for such great hospitality!

Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in an excellent location for just about anything you want to do in Galveston. It is a very nice 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo. We had to go to Galveston for a wedding and decided to stay in a condo instead of a hotel for more space. I recommend this condo to anyone who is planning a visit to Galveston. The beach is right across the street and the condo is located right by one of the pools at the Dawn. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again. Thanks again to John and Lisa for sharing their condo.

Great long weekend getaway!

  • 4 of 5

A great condo with all kinds of amenities. Nice view of the ocean from the balcony. Had a great lagoon style pool and hot tub right outside the door and the beach was right across the street. There was a Walmart and convenience store within walking distance. It was central enough to many of the things to do on the island: Moody Gardens, downtown, seawall restaurants and shopping but also far enough to avoid a lot of the noise. The street was close to the master bedroom but once you turn on the noise diffuser, it wasn't an issue. Big master shower. Condo was clean and nicely decorated with a beach theme. There were games, and beach chairs and umbrella to take to the beach stored in one closet. Plenty of pillows and blankets, etc in the other bedroom. One bedroom had a view of the beach while the other had a view of the lagoon pool. A nice kitchen with everything you would need. A nice little stash of various hot teas too. There is some coffee (enough for a pot or two maybe), but if you plan on drinking lots of coffee, bring some of your own to be on the safe side or plan on going to the Walmart across the street. The parking on the seawall side was close to the unit. The facility is gated with different keycodes for the walk in gate and the parking lot on the backside. There is also a different access code for the workout facility. I wasn't able to get in the first few days and the office is not open early enough but I talked to the owner and he gave me a new access code.

The kitchen had everything you would need for cooking-big pots, pans, utensils, dishes, etc. You might want to bring extra trash bags or toilet paper (they give one extra roll) if you plan on staying for an extended period of time or if you plan on eating and cooking all your meals in the condo.

We had a fabulous time hanging out at the pool, in the hot tub, on the balcony. It was all very relaxing.

We also enjoyed the great beach area across the street where we found seashells, took long walks, laid in the sun, played in the surf. Also, you can rent bikes not too far away to ride up and down the seawall. Downtown is great for shopping and restaurants. Moody Gardens is worth the trip if you want to get away from the beach and pool. Great place to stay!

Owner's Response: We certainly appreciate you taking the time to give a very thorough review! It sounds like you took advantage of many things that Galveston, our condo, and the complex had to offer. (Sorry about the fitness room code. The new code was a little late getting to us.) How exciting to find seashells on the new beach! Thanks for your great review!

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 public beaches on the west end 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, Feather Fest, and Dickens on the Strand. Many tours of the island are available including dolphin/harbor 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.
