Memorable Beach Vacation!

9520 Seawall Blvd, 256, Galveston, TX (414771)

What a gorgeous condo! A true home-away-from-home! From the minute we walked in to this beautiful place, we were hooked! From the stained hardwood floors throughout, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, over sized jetted master tub, king sized beds in both bedrooms,3 flat screen TVs, the comfortable rocking chair in the master bedroom (handy if you have a baby), washer and dryer (and more!), you could easily tell special attention was paid to every detail in the finish out of this condo to make it a memorable vacation spot. The photos are great, but the condo is more beautiful in person. The condo was very clean. We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing and watching the ocean waves with a glass of wine on the double balcony off the living room and master bedroom. The location was convenient to anywhere on the island you want to visit, but just the right distance away from the higher traffic areas which made a real difference for us. The sandy beach is a short drive to 61st Street. It was a real pleasure dealing with the Property Manager of this unit. She was very responsive, informative, and answered all our questions which helped to make our stay so enjoyable. We had a great time and will highly recommend the 'Making Memories' Condo to our friends, relatives, and to anyone planning a weekend getaway or vacation on the island. Thank you for making our 1st beach vacation with our toddler a 'special memory'! We can't wait to return!

Guestbook comments from the manager
Our experience was great! First, working with the Galveston Real Estate team exceeded expectations. The were responsive, flexible in our requests and provided very clear rental instructions.



As for the condo, it was phenomenal. This unit was all new inside, very clean and well kept. The best compliment I can pay is that I would certainly recommend this unit and working with Galveston Real Estate to others and would definitely stay here again in the future.





Thank You

We have had many wonderful years enjoying our beach cabins at Crystal Beach but in 2008 Hurricane Ike destroyed them. We decided to try a condo in Galveston to enjoy the many wonderful restaurants and activities there are. We hope you have a wonderful time in Galveston enjoying the great features of the Maravilla and Condo 256!

Christina Stevens, Realtor, Realty Associates purchased this condo in 2012

We chose to purchase at the Maravilla condos because of the great location that is minutes from all the great activities in Galveston. The Maravilla has wonderfully landscaped grounds with a nice river running from front to back. The pools are incredible with a large free form pool with a cabana for your convenience. Below our condo there is a third pool which we like since it is a little quieter and very convenient.

One of the things we like best about the Maravilla is the convenient location to Galveston activities yet directly around the Maravilla it is on the quieter end of the seawall so you can get away from it all if you want to. It is easy to cross the street and walk up and down the seawall and look for dolphins playing and birds soaring overhead. The atmosphere is relaxing and the property has spacious grounds which provide enough room to never feel crowded! Enjoy our balcony which spands both the den and master bedroom and the view includes a panoramic view of the Gulf of Mexico.

CLEAN, CONVENIENT BEACH CONDO

  • 5 of 5
My family of six enjoyed a week long rental this spring. The condo was just as described and the pictures were representative of the taste and design detail of the owners. We were immediately impressed by the cleanliness of the property and the updated interior of the condo.

The location was convenient to area attractions (Schlitterbahn, Pleasure Pier, etc.) while still feeling away from the crowds. The grounds and pools were well cared for and exactly as pictured. Communication with the property manager was easy and straightforward. Our deposit was returned quickly after our stay.

We would definitely stay in this condo again as well as recommend it to friends and family.

Owner's Response: We were grateful to have you and glad you enjoyed the condo. We love our location. This is why the owners have purchased another condo in the complex that will start renting on June 16, 2014. If you love this one be sure to ask about this new rental.

It is truly wonderful when someone takes the time to send positive feedback after a stay. Thank you again for taking the time to do so. Thank you Christina

MARAVILLA

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a cozy, comfortable condo. This met all our expectations and more. It was immaculate, We had the comforts of home and not a hotel feel. The rooms were spacious and access to the ocean was just across from the condo. We were close to shops, activities, and even a movie theater. We enjoyed ourselves and were able to relax at the same time.

MOST ENJOYABLE

  • 4 of 5
The condo was just as it was advertised . The view was very nice. The Condo was decorated very pretty with a sea side decor. The place accomadated the two couples but I think saying it would sleep 8 people would be very crowded.
I would like to come back when the weather is warm and sit out on the beautiful deck.

MOST COMFORTABLE VACATION EVER!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this property was truly wonderful! I got great information ahead of time from my very first inquiry. It was an easy process to reserve the condo. We got there very late and were so pleased to find a security guard on site who was very helpful in locating the exact condo, and luggage racks, and information on signing in the next day. The next morning the ladies in the office could not have been more friendly and helpful! We had no need to contact anyone once we settled in as everything went so smoothly. After we left, I realized I had left an item at the condo and they were great to find it for me and assist in getting it back to me! (impressed!)

The condo was just as its pictured here! Great kitchen, really comfortable furniture, large, flat-screen tv's in each room. The A/C and ceiling fans worked well, and the water pressure in the bathrooms was great! Having the washer and dryer turned out to be a big bonus! (Never thought I'd do laundry on my vacation but I did every day!) The view was not the best but we didn't plan on sitting in the room and looking out the window anyway. Ladies, don't let the jetted tub entice you... let the guys have the master bath. Between the ocean, the pool and the hot tub, I never even got a chance to use the jetted tub and I sure wish I would have chosen the hall bath with the great counter space. The master bath vanity has very little useful counter space because of the unique sink. Just take the other one and you'll be happy! We had to battle swarms of mosquitos in the stairwells and at the front door, but we sprayed the door with flying insect spray (that worked) and avoided the stairwell in favor of the elevator as much as possible. We expected mosquitos as it IS the coast!! The hot tub was really great, very warm and good pressure. The main pool was really clean and the water temp stayed cool. We didn't use the other pools. One looked like it needed cleaning but it had the most plants around it. The third one looked really clean also. We were a bit alarmed to find a go-cart track right next door because of the noise but found that when we got inside we couldn't hear a thing from outside!

I highly recommend this condo to others. Our experience was so good I would LOVE to come back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. My owners have tried very hard to make the space functional and very nice. The Go Cart area has been great for the kid in all and it is a bit noise free due to the type of go carts the track is using which I believe are also more environmentally friendly. Mosquito's sadly love to come visit after a rain and that may have been the pool issue as well. Its takes quite a bit to get pools so large in order after we do have rain. I only wish we could predict the weather:). The front office ladies are always a pleasure and we do hope you consider coming back and taking advantage of our repeat guest discount of 10%. Our fall and winter rates, plus specials with 5th night free are fantastic. Thank you for your time and valued feedback. Christina S, property manager

WONDERFUL VACATION!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time during our stay at this amazing condo! There was a slight glitch with the TV in the living room when we arrived; however, as stated, all we had to do was make a phone call and it was immediately taken care of.
Everything was absolutely beautiful and the condo has been kept up very nicely. With everything right at our fingertips, we felt right at home! Our time at this condo served as a very restful getaway, yet was close enough to so many attractions that we were never bored! We're looking forward to returning next year!!!
