OCEAN FRONT - 'GALVESTON TROPICAL SUNDANCER' 3 POOLS/HOT TUB

Galveston Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrooms, Bunk Area, Sleeps 8

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.

About Marilyn Swanson

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.

Marilyn Swanson purchased this condo in 2010

Why Marilyn Swanson chose Galveston

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.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you were able to enjoy the Rally at our condo. Always lots of people in town for the extended weekend. You were wise to reserve early. We look forward to your return next year if your schedule allows - and yes even though it is the Rally, you will receive our returning guest discount.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
We totally enjoyed our stay in the condo. The three of us had plenty of room and we especially enjoyed sitting on the balcony. We went for long walks along the seawall and enjoyed the quick access to Galveston restaurants and The Strand.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5
When my daughter and son-in- law relocated to the Houston area, I was looking forward to vacationing in a state I had never been to.I had never used vrbo before, but after contacting Marilyn, I knew this was the way to start planning our next vacation.
Not being familiar with the area, Marilyn was so helpful. She had great recommendations, where to eat, shops, sightseeing and so much more!! Every time I had a question, she was quick to respond.
The condo was perfect, very clean & spacious, the balcony over looking the ocean was amazing!! The property is beautiful. The staff was so nice!! I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a great experience.
Thank-you again Larry & Marilyn for sharing your condo with us! I wish we could have met, maybe next time because we will definitely be returning!!

As a travel agent, booking a vacation for myself is a challenge. As a VRBO fan, I look for location, cleanliness, amenities and an engaging manner from the owners! WOW, I got it all! Just far enough from the heavy traffic, best beds on the island, gorgeous pool, great office staff, clean, well stocked and the MOST amazing owner! Thank you, Marilyn! We wanted to steal that coffee maker and the mattresses, but were afraid you might notice!! So many owners do not understand the importance of a good night's sleep, but my guess is that Marilyn sleeps in these beds on occasion!
If you are looking for a great view, good value and peace and quiet, you will not go wrong choosing Tropical Sundancer! Need a smaller condo with the same great service and style? Call Marilyn. I have it on good authority that she has acquired a one bedroom at Maravilla for my next solo runaway!

What an awesome view!

  • 5 of 5
What a GREAT place! My family and I have been going to Galveston for years for several “mini-vacations” a year and have stayed all over the place. That is until we rented our first condo from Marilyn and Larry! We are hooked now and don’t stay anywhere else. The furnishings are gorgeous at all of their condos and the appliances are all up to date and in working order. This was our first stay in this particular condo and it may be our favorite yet! It’s not hard to miss the sunrise in the mornings when all you have to do is roll over in the super comfy king size bed and look out the sliding glass door. We were up early every morning to make sure we didn’t miss it! Beautifully decorated and all the comforts to make you feel right at home.

Thank once again you Marilyn and Larry for your hospitality and sharing your beautiful place with us...
See you soon,
Mike, Linda and Family

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I loved this condo. The pictures do not do it justice. It is very roomy, well lit and clean. The kitchen is large and well stocked. The owners went out of their way to accommodate us and made it very easy to do business with them. I would recommend this place to anyone!
