Galveston Condo Rental Photos and Description

“Galveston Tropical Getaway - #2” at Maravilla is ready for your Galveston beach holiday. Our second one bedroom condo, at the popular ocean front Maravilla Resort Condominium, is located in the new section and decorated in cool relaxing colors with lots of art. It is next door to our other one bedroom condo at Maravilla, 'Galveston Tropical Getaway - 1. We invite you to visit. This condo, one of our five personally owned and managed Maravilla condos, sleeps five with a queen-sized bed in the bedroom with a mirrored closet wall, a queen sleeper sofa in the living room and a single bed in a hide-away nook. All the floors and the balcony are tiled with 20 inch ceramic tile for a stunning look. Walk from the living room to your private balcony overlooking the largest of Maravilla’s three pools with a view of the hot tub and the Galveston Gulf in the distance. The well-designed modern kitchen is fully equipped with granite countertops and everything you could need for cooking an elegant dinner at home. You can eat at the bar or at the rectangular table after appetizers on the balcony. The bathroom is tiled with a bathtub and shower. This part of the Maravilla complex has all new construction. We are proud that we now have all six of our Maravilla condos available for our guests. Galveston is growing and we are delighted the new Marriott Hotel next door is now finished. And with the Marriott comes a Starbucks Coffee shop, a bar and restaurant right next door.

About Marilyn Swanson, the owner
We, Larry and Marilyn, love Galveston and visit the Island as often as possible. In fact our retirement dream is to own a canel home. But we are still part of the workforce so until then we will settle for living in Pearland, Texas and spending just as much time as possible in Galveston. Larry works for Baker-Hughes and Marilyn helps people with their Medicare and retirement solutions through Bankers Life and Casualty. She is also very much of a 'hands-on' property manager for our 5 Galveston condos. This picture was taken on the Galveston Beach in April.

Why Marilyn Swanson, the owner chose Galveston
We purchased Galveston Tropical Getaway #1 in 2008 - right before Hurricane Ike. It was to be our personal hideaway in Galveston. Then came Hurricane Ike, then came the Maravilla fire. In late 2011 and early 2012, Marilyn realized how much she enjoyed doing the decorating and serving as the General Contractor (with lots of help and encouragement from Larry) for the rebuild. And we are delighted with the resuts! When the condo next door to our original 'Galveston Tropical Getaway' came on the market, we didn't hesitate too long. We thought it would be easier to rebuild, choose colors, choose furnishings etc. since we would be doing it again. And for the most part - it was. And that's the reason we now have Galveston Tropical Getaway #2. We like to think of them as the 'Tropical Getaway Twins'. It works so well for two families that want some privacy yet want to be close.
What makes this condo unique
'Galveston Tropical Getaway #2' is right next door to our original Getaway, 'Tropical Getaway#1'. Both condos sleep 5. We enjoy it when the grandkids (and their parents) visit. They can stay in this condo (with a bathtub for the little ones) and we can be right next door - a walk-in shower is ideal for us.
