Great property for a Galveston getaway! 5 STARS

Guest: A beachlover from Kingwood (Kingwood, Texas)

Date of Stay: 08/09/12 Review Submitted: 08/14/12

We had 7 people stay at this property for two nights. The atmosphere and accommodations were very welcoming and clean. The location was great; just a short drive down seawall to where you can hang out on the beach. The property manager was fantastic to work with and answered all my questions quickly. I would hightly recommend this property to anyone with or without pets. We brought our German Shepherd with us and she felt at home there. We did bring our own kennel to keep her in when we were not inside the property so she would feel confortmable. There was plenty space to keep it in the living room. I can't wait for our next Galveston overnight; I know we'll want to go back to this property again.

Date of Stay: 07/26/12 Review Submitted: 08/06/12

My family of 4 and I stayed at this condo recently, we had an amazing time. The condo was very clean, loved the up to date appliances and plumbing fixtures, very classy. This place also has an amazing pool area, i was blown away with the size!!! A few kids with parents, never 'crowded.' (i was very impressed) Our trip consisted of mainly adults, so it was nice to hang out on the patio w/ drinks, look at the amazing view and listen to the ocean. The person I booked the trip with was so very nice as well. She was very thorough when answering my questions, and she was super prompt in replying to my emails. We had an amazing vacay!!!

Wonderful spot to spend my time away from home

Guest: Lola B (Dallas, Texas) 5 STARS

Date of Stay: 02/02/12 Review Submitted: 07/13/12

I received the information asking for a review from the owners who appear to want feedback and I completely forgot until I tried to book again today. Its nice that people appreciate the comments of their guests which could be either good or bad. Thankfully my experience was wonderful and I regret not posting this review sooner. The owners promised a 10% discount and I am currently working on booking the condo for September. I had such a wonderful view that honestly I would come back without the discount. I never thought Galveston would be such a nice place to visit during the winter but due to visiting family I now know its a great time of year to enjoy the island. This condo offered everything I needed. The view speaks for itself so I do plan to continue working with these owners and their property manager.

Recooping from Surgery

Guest: Donna W. (Port Neches, TX) 5 STARS

Date of Stay: 03/11/12 Review Submitted: 03/16/12

I chose to come to Galveston to recoup from back surgery. I was told to walk a lot and relax. Your condo provided a lot of both. When I needed to walk, I would just cross the street and take long walks on the sea wall while watching the waves or sunrise. Only about 2 blocks down is Jimmy’s Pier for GREAT food-we ate there for breakfast twice and lunch twice. When eating in the condo, we enjoyed the FULL SIZE appliances. A lot of condos have mini-versions. The view from the balcony was so close to the water and we enjoyed watching the pelicans fly slowly by above our heads all day. The pools were huge and my sister and her husband said the hot tub was very hot and strong. They loved it. Thanks for helping me recuperate! We loved your condo and will be back.

The last guest BOUGHT her own home away from home at the Maravilla during her stay.

This property is managed by a local property manager and Realtor, Christina Stevens with Realty Associates. We are a couple who feel in love with Galveston many years ago. We do live out of the area and travel as often as we can to the condo.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Having a condo for our pleasure in Galveston, Texas, that we could also use as a vacation rental was a must. We love the island and hope our visitors feel the same. After looking at many properties we feel in love with the Maravilla because the grounds are so wonderful and the view was perfect. The pools are very inviting and the complex is well landscaped. We feel like we can offer our condo to others that will truly enjoy the ocean breeze while staying at our home away from home.

We enjoy relaxing evenings on the patio watching the sun set and just feeling the ocean breeze. It is always nice to cook a lovely dinner and just enjoy the beauty of the ocean. We can also have a lazy day at the pool followed by a lovely dinner out since we are conveniently located by many restaurants. The hot tub is always inviting and warm year around. Our personal guests have enjoyed all the amenities the Maravilla has to offer. A morning swim (weather permitting) or workout is always an option to start the day. We have entertained many friends since our recent purchase and enjoy every free moment we have to do so. We hope others experience the blissful feeling we have while just enjoying a simple life and the beauty of the ocean.

Really clean and complete property with all the amenities you'd expect in a condo. Good TV and internet access, spectacular views. At the quiet end of the Galvestoin Seawall with easy access to shopping, restaurants and a movie theatre. Three pools are nice, especially the heated one and the hot tub. Parking is mostly covered and is monitored. Very comfortable place and well decorated. Could imagine spending an exteneded period at the property. Bikes would have been great for riding around and they can be rented at a few places. Full kitchen made it nice for meals and reheating leftovers from the restaurants.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind review. We really feel like our location is central to all the fun Galveston Island has to offer. Our view speaks for itself and we hope other travelers enjoy it as much as you have.

This condo is just perfect for hanging out with our great friends and enjoying the beautiful scenery. The view is magnificent and the condo is clean and fully stocked with every single item we needed. Loved the mornings on the porch drinking coffee and the evenings spent sipping wine. Can't wait to come back! And so glad that they allowed our dog, Jack, to stay with us. Great holiday!

AWESOME PLACE TO STAY!

My family and I enjoyed our stay at this very nice Condo on the Seawall. Being at the West end of town - it was a little quieter than on the other end of town. The staff were all great. We liked having the security guard on duty at night, felt a little safer even. My only complaint was I never found a heated pool and I was under the impression that there was one, the water was way too cold to swim during February. Thank you for having such a nice place - we will be back in the future. The view of the ocean was breathtaking - making the place PERFECT!!!

Owner's Response: We are so sorry you missed the heated pool. The heated pool is on the same side as the location of the condo. It is located on the west side, at the back of the complex. We have signs all over the complex and the front office staff is always happy to help. I am always a phone call as well. Thank you for the positive feedback and your stay.

Wonderful weekend in Galveston

We had such a blast! There were six of us, two couples and two small children. I think we would've been a little cramped if we had any more guests, but it was the perfect size for our group. The view really is great! We watched the fireworks at Moody Gardens from the front balcony! The beach is right out front, and although there is a road in front of it, it's still very relaxing. We were a little nervous about the noise coming from some of the other condos next door, but luckily everyone seemed to be respectful and tuned it down after 11pm or so. The condo was very clean, we brought a 9 month old and he couldn't find anything off the floor to put in his mouth! My husband even commented on how comfy the bed was (we were in the master bedroom) and he is a picky sleeper. The pools were also very nice, not crowded at all, we spent more time in the pool than at the beach. Parking was very convenient and the reception staff lady was very nice! The condo is far enough away from the main traffic in town to seem on your own, but close enough that all the restaurants and entertainment is close by. We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: I am so pleased to hear you guys had a great time. Very sorry we had some guests that were not respectful at the complex in terms of noise. I am always on call to address that with security if needed. Thank you for letting us know. PLEASE come back in the future and enjoy the owners 10% discount. I will certainly pass on the comments about how clean the condo was to our housecleaning as well. They do an excellent job. Have a w2onderful summer. Thank you, Christina, Property Manager
