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 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 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.

You want to stay here!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time here. The condo is clean and spacious. The beds were SO comfy. The location is great. You have a view of the water, and you’re close to restaurants and shops. There is traffic, but it never bothered us. You can’t beat that view! The pool was awesome and we loved the beach. The owners left us some bottled water and fruit which was an extra special touch. We would definitely stay here again!

We had a wonderful time. It was an excellent location, very close to everywhere we wanted to go. You do need to update the code to the walk up gates.

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.
