About Kate Jude

We are two related native Minnesota families - Boisen & Jude. One couple lives full time in Galveston while the other splits time between Minnesota and Galveston. We were drawn to this area by the climate, food, culture and activities available, as well as having a large airport hub not far away. When you visit our condo you will always have the best service available because we live here on the island too.

Kate Jude purchased this condo in 2014

Why Kate Jude chose Gulf Coast

Our condos are situated perfectly to provide access to just about anything you'd like to do. You have the small town feel with a big city (Houston) not that far away. We love this property for its location of not being right in the thick of the tourist traffic but close enough to dining, beach and cultural events. This property also has 2 pools for use by guests and it's a security facility, which we deem important to our guests. We also now have a new beach directly across the street! Just grab our towels, cooler and beach mats and you are on your way to a wonderful day in the surf!

What makes this condo unique

Galveston Island is very diverse and has a little bit of something for everyone. This condo is perfectly situated to give you flexibility with regard to your choices of activities. Our condo is also super easy to get to even during the busy Summer Season. No need to be in stop and go traffic on the Seawall.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was very impressed with these condos. We chose to stay in it as a 3 BR, which was wonderful! 3 bedrooms, 3 baths and 2 kitchens! Everything is brand new and the attention to detail shows in every room. Wonderful plush towels, lots of seating and a washer and dryer! The views of the Gulf are very nice and we spent our mornings walking along the Seawall. Close to everything. We will return for sure!

Our condo's provide for a fabulous weekend getaway, a long term rental or just a family vacation. We are 13 blocks from the Convention Center, directly on the Seawall, so you can easily walk to events. Come for the festivals or cruises. Stroll along the Seawall or get that morning run on the beach. Enjoy the wonderful restaurants by the ocean or stop by Pier 21 or any of the local shops to pick up your own fresh fish, shrimp or other seafood to cook up in our gourmet kitchen. Looking for things to do with your children? Schlitterbahn and Moody Gardens less than 5 minutes away or walk down to the Miniature Golf just 2 miles away. The gated community provides safety and privacy from an Island bustling with visitors during peak season. All gates use codes to minimize any worries about people accessing the condo grounds. Please take a look at our other property #669695, which is our 1 BR.

Great condo for families!

  • 5 of 5

We always love staying at The Dawn condos when we're in Galveston, but this was our first time in this particular unit. Since we were traveling with extended family (my husband & I, our 3 kids, and my husband's parents), the adjoining units were perfect! There was plenty of space for everyone, and we were able to spend as much time together or separately as we wanted. These units are nicely furnished and decorated, and everything in them is in good condition. We will definitely plan to rent this pair of condos again if we return to Galveston with a group in the future!

Great rental

  • 5 of 5

Loved the condos, very well equipped with pleanty of everything. Great location and great setup for families. It even had a rocking chair to rock my granddaughter.Everything was very clean, except the rug in the living room of the 2 bedroom unit needs to be cleaned or replaced. The kitchen was well equipped with plenty of dishes and other items.Overall this place worked great for 6 adults and 4 kids and we will stay here again when we come back.
