About Kate Jude

We are two related native Minnesotan families. One couple lives full time in Galveston while the other splits time between Minnesota and Galveston. We were drawn to the island 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 possible because we live here on the island too!

Kate Jude purchased this condo in 2014

Why Kate Jude chose Gulf Coast

Our condo is situated perfectly to provide access to just about anything you'd like to so. You get 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 and a hot tub for use by guests. It's also a secure facility, which we deem important to our guests.

See our other property listing (665327), which is a two BR which can combine with this property for a 3BR unit!

What makes this condo unique

Galveston Island is very diverse and has a little bit of something for everyone. This condo is 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.

Awesome Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights this past week. We rent condos and beach houses a couple times a year and this one was by far the cleanest we've stayed in. The bed was super comfortable and the kitchen had everything you could possibly need for cooking. Close to everything and the owner was just a text away to answer any questions we had. If we come back to Galveston we will definitely stay at this property again.

Everything we expected!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I chose this property to get away for an extended weekend to celebrate our anniversary. The long and short of our stay is that the unit was everything we were hoping it was. More importantly, it was depicted very accurately in the listing. The decor and furnishings are all very modern and well kept.

The pool areas were nice. One pool was being maintained during our stay, but the other one was open.

Arrival information was complete, and instructions for leaving the unit were clear.

Galveston beach is no Clearwater or Panama City Beach, but the waves were big and we had fun in the gulf just the same. Most of the main attractions of the beach area and dining is up the road a little ways. Just outside walking distance, but a short car ride or a very reasonable bike ride would get you there.

The only thing we were disappointed in was the pool was not heated and the hot tubs were not hot. Other than that our vacation was perfect!!! Beautiful home

Can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights here and had a wonderful time. The condo is so comfortable; beautiful furnishings; great view; all the comforts of home. We enjoyed sitting on the deck looking at the ocean. We really liked the location as we were close to the Strand for great food and shopping yet we weren't in a heavy traffic area.
