Galveston Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1 Bath (Sleeps 5-6)

“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.

Marilyn Swanson, the owner purchased this condo in 2012

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.

Very Impressed!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here celebrating our 15 yr anniversary last September. Upon arrival we were a little nervous because of the sheer ease of check in, settling in, etc. That is what we were promised but I really didn't think it would be THAT easy and private and just like WOW! The three pools were all fabulous, the location was awesome, and it was extremely relaxing. I know we want to come back and bring our daughter. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. As a matter of fact we recommended it the first time while we were still there! This review is WAY late, but I still remember how awesome this place was. And, Marilyn is super awesome, informative and friendly!!

What A Great Find!!!

  • 5 of 5
Wow..thanks for meeting and exceeding my expectations! What a wonderful place. I'm a "details" person and I must say...your attention to details makes the difference. Down to the coffee filter in the coffee maker, awaiting my morning java fix. Your condo is in a great location, very clean, tastefully decorated, comfortable, supplied with everything you need, stocked with island info and thoughtfully laid out. My teenagers pass on their "2 Thumbs Up!!" We will definitely be back and refer others to you. Thank you again for opening your condo to our family...and making our visit to Galveston, one to remember.

Getaway with my wife

  • 5 of 5
Had a blast! Staff was cordial and helpful with info. about the island too. Good location to get to the restaurants or just taking a walk on the beach. Lazed around the pools some too. Definitely going back as soon as we can manage it.
Place was clean. Looked just like the pictures we saw on line. marilyn answered all of my questions before we arrived. Definitely recommend "The Spot" on Seaway. Eclectic layout, and eclectic menu. Had a full moon to stare at. All the while, I had the most beautiful girl in the world next to me. Perfect!

Works for Mom & Daughter Getaway Too!

Works for Mom & Daughter Getaway Too!
  • 5 of 5
My mom and I stayed for some mother-daughter bonding time. It was quiet and pretty, close but far enough away from the mayhem.

The unit was well stocked and bed very comfortable.

The later check-out and early check-in was an unexpected bonus we were gracious to have.

Marilyn was very agreeable and responsive. We just returned and already want to plan our next trip to stay in one of Marilyn's places.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this delightful condo. Having stayed in various places across the country and in many time-share arrangements we have a set criteria of expectations and our condo met and surpassed those. First, it was exactly as described to us by the owners and upon entering we observed that all the rooms were very clean. We especially appreciate such a unit being well-stocked for the typical traveler and we found everything we needed and more was already there.
One difference compared to some other properties is the size of the balcony. Often it is a tiny little place with barely room for 2 people and a small table. We loved having space to share with friends. The grounds are very well maintained and so pleasant. The fact that everything is new and beautifully decorated made our time there especially memorable. Thanks so much! We will return!

Owner's Response: We are delighted to have been able to share our condo with you. One of the things that is very important to us is "clean" and we have a wonderful cleaning staff that takes care of us. In addition, I'm glad you enjoyed the balcony. We also enjoy coffee in the morning and wine at nite on the balcony where you get those ocean breezes and the rustling sounds of the palms. We look forward to your next visit.
