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 The Owner

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!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2012

Why The Owner 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

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Galveston. The condo was clean and it was really handy to have a washer and dryer in the unit. The view was great! We enjoyed watching the ducks and pelicans land on the pond right next door. We even saw some nutria! We will stay here again!

Nice, updated condo with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

Our family very much enjoyed our stay at this condo. We have 3 boys, ages 9, 13 & 15. The accommodations were perfect for us with room to sleep 2 or 3 more pretty easily! We loved the dual purpose table/bottom bunk which worked for games during the day and a sleeping space at night. We also enjoyed playing games around the round table in the living room with pull out stools. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. We were spoiled with the keurig coffee maker - I think we're going to need to buy our own now! The condo is nicely updated with beautiful wood floors and granite and stainless steel. It was very cold during our stay, so the jacuzzi tub in the master bath and outdoor hot tub were big hits. It was still too cold for the heated pool. Our boys loved our day at pleasure pier - no lines this time of year!

Owner's Response: We really appreciate it when someone takes the time to leave us feedback. We often get great texts and emails but just taking the time to do a review means so much. Your kind words are so nice. We LOVE the Jacuzzi tub and this time of year is a "no wait" for places like the Pleasure Pier. Galveston is a really great [;ace in the fall and winter. Combined with our reduced offseason rates we hope our guests continue to have great experiences.

Family winter get away

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented two condos at this location. This condo was outstanding! Everything was in excellent condition, just as advertised. The check-in was simple; location, excellent; and the condo itself was perfect for both adults and children. The view of both the beach and pool were bonuses we did not expect. And the heated pool was a big hit. Thanks for a fun and relaxing vacation. This is on our list of "Do It Again" locations.

Thanks again, Christina, Property Manager

Beautiful island oasis!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful island oasis! We were able to take our granddaughter for an island getaway for her birthday and we enjoyed every minute. The attention to every detail will make you feel right at home. The condo was decorated beautifully and the view from the balcony was stunning. We enjoyed our coffee on the balcony as we watched the sunrise and a glass of wine in the evenings as the sun set, and the lights of Galveston came alive. The bunk beds/children's nook was a great compliment to those with little ones. The property is very well maintained and beautifully landscaped with three pools and hot tub. The condo is located just past the hustle of all the popular Galveston venues and attractions but close enough to anything you may want to experience while on the island. Spacious and spotless, this condo is a true find and we plan to return!

2 couples from Kansas City

  • 5 of 5

This condo was exactly what we were looking for. The view of the gulf is lovely and we enjoyed every morning and evening on the porch. The accommodations were very tastefully decorated and immaculately clean. There was lots of room for the four of us to have a private bedroom and bathroom for each couple. The location was very suitable for quiet time away from the attractions but still just ten minutes from nice restaurants, attractions, and the golf course. We especially appreciated the king size beds and were pleased that there were TV's in both bedrooms. The large TV in the living room was great for watching the World Series while we were there.
