Galveston Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

View the Gulf of Mexico through lush tropical landscape and relax on the oversized balcony/terrace. A table and six chairs, two chaise lounges, and an electric grill make this a great spot to entertain friends and family.

Large guest room with a canopy iron bed and ample closet space. There is a niche with a secretary were you can write the postcards. Wonderful shower with eleven shower heads and a steam unit and two dressing areas. The master is tastefully decorated with very comfortable beds.

The kitchen and living areas are open and separated with a granite breakfast bar able to seat six people. Stainless appliances and iron light fixtures complete the kitchen.

The living area has a queen size corner sofa bed and and antique nine foot side board. The flooring is similar to Sautillo tile. This is a condominium to be comfortable and surrounded by elegance. I would like to welcome you in my homePlease also check out the unit next door VRBO#120079.

Just a few little remarks taken out of the guest book.

About Gisela Bankston

I was born in Berlin and arrived in America in 1962. Lived in Miami and Chicago and had very interesting bussines ventures. But once a Texan I guess you always will be. So since 1976 I am back in Houston and finding a second home in the Maravilla wastruly a blessing.

Gisela Bankston purchased this condo in 2005

Why Gisela Bankston chose Galveston

When I was property shopping I fell in love with the balcony and the lay out of the condo. There is just nothing, in my eyes to compare with the view and the grounds. Even when it rains, i can often it out side and read. The bath room with the steam unit does wonders for my body. It is total relaxation.

What makes this condo unique

The Maravilla HOA asked us to notify all of this;

The Maravilla complex, or some portion of the complex is under construction which poses certain risk to those on the property.

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had such a lovely time! The condo was magnificent. The balcony is HUGE! I enjoyed eating at the patio table and taking in the beautiful scenery. We had plenty of room and all the supplies we needed. I even made cupcakes! :) We met the owner and she was so nice and helpful. We were very appreciative. I sure do miss the wonderful shower now that I'm home. Thank you Gisela. We'll be back!

Wow! What a breathtaking condo.

  • 5 of 5
This condo had all the essentials of home and more with a beautiful modern well-equipped kitchen, plush bedrooms, over sized patio and a very large steam spa shower “outstanding!” Everything was very clean. My wife and I were impressed with the classic short story novels. We enjoyed our stay very much. The owner made herself available to answer any questions we had. I would highly recommend this condo. Thanks Gisela.

Misrepresentation led to Ruined Vacation

  • 1 of 5
This was supposed to be a family vacation. Instead it turned into a nightmare. I chose this unit because it was listed as accessible and that is the FIRST thing I look at when because my son is paraplegic. I specifically told the owner months ago that my son was in a chair and asked her if this unit was right for him, and she replied that it was. I trusted that she was correct, first mistake! When we arrived and looked around, I could tell the doors were not wide enough and that there was NO WAY he could enter the bathrooms. When Gisela arrived soon after she was told about the problem, but stated she was sorry and there was nothing she could do. After spending money for the condo we had to go out and try to find a hotel. We spent another $700 to stay somewhere else. Most people would not understand how important it is for the description to be precise unless they have a loved one with a disability. The accessibility of the unit determines how independent the person in a wheelchair is. Gisela has now changed the description to" not wheelchair accessible " which is good. Hopefully no other disabled person will have to go through what we went through...unloading/loading wheelchair and luggage, stress of not knowing where we will be staying, added expense, also the stress on our little furbaby who came with us because the condo was pet friendly. We had to hide her the rest of the trip. This condo IS NOT good for people with disabilities or the elderly and the owner was no help at all.

The condo is really nice. It is very clean and decorated very nice.
The patio overlooks the pool so you always have a view. The patio is quite large and has good furniture on it. Gisela will do everything she can to make your stay comfortable.
The condo is very well furnished. There are even spices there.
The shower/steam room is unbelievable, it is so big and nice.

Wonderful 25th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5
We were able to rent this wonderful property on short notice for the weekend after our 25th Anniversary.
As a suprise, Gisela left us a wonderful vase full of beautiful flowers and a card congratulating us. She also stopped by to offer us suggestions on places to go on the island.
This condo has so much space!! And as all other reviews mention, the balcony is HUGE and overlooks the large pool.
The living areas are open and comfortable, the kitchen is "chef" equipped, the huge shower is wonderful, and we slept like babies in the wonderful bed.
We will not hesitate to stay in this condo again. We are, in fact, already planning our next trip to visit Gisela in Galveston.
Just like us, do not hesitate to rent this property, unless it is at the same time we want it!! LOL!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5
Had a wonderful stay at your condo. Loved being located right over the large pool. The pool was never really crowded which was nice. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen worked out great for cooking breakfast and dinner when we didn't eat out. You're condo next door worked out great for my sister and her family. We will keep you in mind next time we have this many of us coming that way. Thanks again!
