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!

About Christina Stevens, Realty Associates Realtor, Property Manager

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, Realty Associates Realtor, Property Manager purchased this condo in 2012

Why Christina Stevens, Realty Associates Realtor, Property Manager chose Galveston

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

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

I never want to go home!

  • 5 of 5
WOW! What a place. I didn't want to go home. This condo has it all, confront, view, and all the extras needed for a wonderful get away. You can tell the owners have gone above and beyond to make their guests, in their beautifully decorated place, feel welcome. I loved the Jacuzzi tub to relax my muscles after a long, hard week of work. Enjoyed my glass of wine on the baloney and enjoying the beautiful view this condo has to offer. I will definitely be back for another stay.

Maravella on the Gulf

  • 5 of 5
The condo was GREAT, we had a beautiful view of the pool and gulf. The beach décor was perfect. It was so nice to be at the kitchen counter and "feeling" the atmosphere of the Galveston area. We enjoyed hanging out on the balcony as well. We did however encounter a few bugs in the condo. Not a lot, but a bug is a bug.

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.
