From the moment you arrive at our lovely condo, 'Galveston Tropical Sundancer at Maravilla', you will be impressed by its charm. The beautiful floors, granite counter-tops and tropical furnishings all say, 'Come in, relax and enjoy your vacation.'
The cool colors and a touch of whimsy, make this unit a relaxed atmosphere for you and your family to rent year after year. This is a true ocean front condo (one of only twelve at Maravilla) so you can relax on the balcony and enjoy a breathtaking view with the ocean stretching out to the horizon. There is also a spotting telescope for a close-up view of the dolphins jumping or the fishing trawlers.
Watch the sunrise over the ocean every morning, either from the comfort of your king-size master bedroom, from the living room, or the big balcony with wonderful patio furniture (a round table with four chairs and two lounge chairs with ottomans).
Or, if you wish, watch the large flat screen TV/DVD compete with cable and a collection of some of my favorite DVDs, currently over 30 from which to choose. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, glasses, including wine glasses and champagne flutes, a microwave, toaster, blender and even a crock pot as well as a variety of spices and condiments for your use.
The master suite awaits you with a king-size bed and a mirrored wall of closets. There is a second flat screen TV with cable so you can watch movies or keep up with the news. Your master suite also features an over sized tiled shower complete with multiple shower heads.
The second bedroom has a queen-size canopy bed.
In addition to the swimming pools there is a large secluded hot tub and a bubbling waterfall that cascades down to one of the pools.
In case you want to ''work'' or ''surf the web'' on your vacation, there is a broadband, high-speed internet connection in the office and exercise/weight room with floor to ceiling windows where you can watch the gentle waves of the Gulf as you exercise.
Your vacation paradise is close enough to downtown so you can experience all that Galveston has to offer - elegant restaurants, the historic district, shopping and the cruise ship docks, yet far enough away that you are not in ''tourist heaven''.
You are within walking distance to the beach, miniature golf, a bungee jump, and some shopping.
Since you are on the near west end of the island, you are also close to Schlitterbahn Water Park, the award-winning Moody Gardens Golf Course, Scholes Airport, the Lone Star Flight museum, Moody Gardens and wonderful places to bird watch.
I look forward to sharing my vacation home with you. Please call or e-mail for more information and to learn more about my favorite places to visit while in Galveston.
Yes, that's us, Larry and Marilyn. We are very much 'hands-on' owners and property managers. We live in Pearland but spend just as much time in Galveston at one of our five condos.
People frequently ask, 'Which of your condos is your favorite?' Actually it is hard to say - all are favorites for different reasons. 'Galveston Tropical Sundancer' is definitely a favorite for watching the waves, the sun rising in the morning and a glass of wine on the balcony at nite as the moon rises over the Gulf.
Our condo at Maravilla Resort Condomium is located on the western part of Seawall Boulevard on Galveston Island in Texas. Galveston is 45 miles south of Houston with easy access to two airports - Hobby (closest) and George W. Bush International Airport (a bit farther north). While at the condo you will be right across the street from the Gulf of Mexico and will be less than 3 miles from Schilitterbahn indoor/outdoor water park and Moody Gardens.
