Galveston Condo Rental Photos and Description

1BR/1BA Sleeps 6, 2 adult size bunks & sleeper sofa

Enjoy sunset from your private quiet balcony overlooking the gulf and beautiful pool grounds. Then, make memories with your family on beautiful Galveston Island. E-mail from guest, : 'Hi, David, Just returned last night from Galveston and had to let you know what a lovely condo you have. . . there was not a thing we needed that was not there, the decor was so very attractive, location just right - that end of the Island is very good place to be. We did the ferry to Port Bolivar, Paddle wheeler trip, museum downtown as well as oil rig museum, trip to Penguin Island, old mansions (Moody was favorite), drove further west and ate at Richard's restaurant in Sea Isle on the marina - TWICE. Used the pocket beaches to good advantage. . . kept going to a different spot each day! Weather was tremendous. . . foggy early but burned off by 9 a.m. Sat on seawall and watched the surfers, went out on fishing pier. . . enjoyed eating at The Spot!'

E-mail from guest, (continue): 'We have stayed in condos on Hilton Head Island, Lake Tahoe - yours was the nicest. . . will miss your television. . . guess we will take a trip to our local television sales store! Thanks again for everything. By the way, the rental office was great, too. We arrived on Monday afternoon and went there in case they could rent to us one day early. . . gave us an hour for the housekeepers to finish and we were in. And, the pool is lovely! Hope to be back. . . Don and Donna Williams in Indiana.'

About Dave Ruch

Pam & I live in Denver, but enjoy visiting Galveston with our Grandkids. They love to splash in the shallow beach water. Eliana wants to drive next time with her new learner's permit :-)

Dave Ruch purchased this condo in 2009

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Dave, We had a great stay! The accommodations were great. The kitchen was well equipped. The only addition we could think of was maybe a sponge. We brought some DVD's and watched them on the flat-screen and we loved the surround sound. We especially enjoyed the movies because the hurricane was coming and we couldn't be on the beach as much as we wanted. It was extremely clean (no bugs) and we enjoyed our stay. Thanks, Mike

By the way, the miniature golf course nearby was the best we've ever played on!

We had wet weather for most of our stay, but Galveston still offers a lot to see and do even if you are carrying an umbrella. The condo is comfortable and efficient, the heated pool helped kids enjoy an otherwise frigid day. It was a nice stay and the facilities are as described. The highlight, for me, was Dave the owner of this unit. He is so attentive to text messages and really has the rental and upkeep of the unit down to a science. It is kind of fun to see how he has thought of everything . . . hope, that doesn't jinx him!

Owner's Response: You can "jinx" me anytime with a review like that! I think everything probably wasn't perfect, but you are so gracious. Now if I could just figure out how to control the weather for your next stay :-) dave

Great location!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in a great location away from downtown. The pools are protected from the wind. Loved the heated swimming pool and hot tab. Best equipped kitchen and extras that we have had in many VRBO condos. Very pleased with the top notch cookware that was provided.

Dave and Pam also kept in close contact with us in case we needed anything.

Loved the space Center in Houston and moody gardens in galveston.

Would recommend this place for families or just adults.

Owner's Response: Hi Pam and Dan, Sounds like you enjoyed the stay. I never thought about the pools being protected from the wind, but you are right, good observation. I can't take credit for the kitchen cookware, but will be sure to pass the complement on to Pam. See ya, Dave

Outside of building is not anything special. Elevator very slow. Ample parking

Owner's Response: Jill, Thanks for sharing your experience. Did you ask the front desk why the elevator might be running slow? The property has 3 elevators (one new) that carry guests up from the covered parking below, convenient for those who do not like stairs. I agree, we do have ample parking, especially during the off-season. Thanks for staying with us! Dave & Pam

Felt like home but with a view.

  • 5 of 5

Great communication, easy to find, great view, great shower/tub, good bed, well equipped kitchen, comfortable couch. We never turned on the surround sound system but it looked like the whole complex could listen. We had bad weather the time we were there but the unit was very nice to be in. Like I said in the title, it felt like home but with a view.

Weekend Getaway

  • of 5

Everything was seamless. The condo felt like your own home away. My 5 year old loved the bulk beds. The location was offered easy access to all the attractions. The owners and Maravilla staff where a pleasure to work with. I hope all our future travels are as smooth as this one.
