OCEAN AND TROPICAL POOL VIEWS FROM A LARGE BALCONY.

Galveston Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, king and queen bed, Sleeps 8 with queen sleeper sofa and bunk beds.

Enjoy our top floor beach, pool, grounds and historical Seawall view as you sit on the patio. The photos of our view are accurate and we hope our guests will enjoy hours spending time on the patio which is why the owners picked this condo.

The owners just purchased this condo in October 1013 and started remodeling ASAP. We welcomed our first guest 11/27/2013. They have rented through VRBO since 2012 and are the previous owners of condo 111.

Stay in a private condo with a full kitchen that satisfies all your needs versus a hotel that does not have this accommodation.

Unlike a hotel you get the comforts of a full kitchen and the choice to dine in instead of eating out your entire vacation.

The Maravilla complex has 3 pools, a hot tub, outdoor grilling, a gym/ business area, and much more. Our east side pool is currently scheduled to be heated by the end of 12/13 so you can enjoy a nice heated swimming pool during the cooler winter months. We have convenient restrooms located in the pool areas.

Convenient elevators throughout that are also located close to the condo. Coin operated laundry facilities right down the hall. Everything is very easy to access.

New to the east side of the complex is a go cart rental track and arcade. Walk over and enjoy. we are also within walking distance of putt putt golf, 1st class batting cages, and much more.

We are minutes away from many beach pocket parks, Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn. If you want to know more about our local attraction please contact our property manager. Be sure to visit Jimmy's on the pier. The pier is within walking distance and serves all meals. They also rent fishing poles if you would like to enjoy some additional time on the pier fishing.

Full kitchen with all you need, DVD player, and 2 tv's. Wifi services provided in the condo.

We love the Maravilla and Galveston. We want to open our condo up so others can enjoy their time at on complex and our this beautiful island.

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

The grounds are beautiful featuring 3 pools and a hot tub that is warm year around. Our east side pool is expected to be heated by the end of 2013. Our condo is on the historical Seawall toward the west end so easy to get to any of the attractions and restaurants. A bit away from the hustle of the main island yet minutes away fro all the fun. The beach is right across the street.

Enjoy this top floor view even while sitting on the couch. The perfect spot to have a nice cup of coffee or glass of wine outside.

Beautiful condo and view

  • 4 of 5
This is the second time we have stayed at the Maravilla, but the first time at this particular condo. This condo is beautifully decorated and the view is exactly how it is shown in the pictures. Very nice utensils and cookware, which was important to us because we were traveling with kids and a grandchild so we cooked a lot. Beds were very comfortable. It has a very large patio and the main pool was nice and clean. I was concerned about mosquitos because of our last stay 2 years ago and another reviewer's comments, however, I never saw a mosquito while we were there. The only thing I wish this property provided was a larger pet area, but it was big enough. Lastly, it is about 10 minutes from the Pleasure Pier, but we like that it is away from all of the traffic. We will stay again.

Mini Beach Vacation for the 4th of July

  • 4 of 5
We had a great weekend staying at the Maravilla. The condo is clean and well decorated. Parking is ample and the pools weren't overly crowded considering it was the 4th of July weekend. The mosquitoes, however, were vicious. I know that is not a reflection on this property, but make sure to bring and use bug spray at all times while outside. Also, I didn't realize until the day before our arrival that this resort was on the seawall and has no beach access. My mistake though for booking without this realization. Overall, it was a great condo to rent!

Great family time!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in lots of Galveston properties over the last 20 years and was pleasantly surprised with this property. The condo was very clean and inviting. The beds are actually comfortable and has a nice patio with a great view. The property is very nice and we loved the big family pool. We couldn't get enough of it. My husband and I brought our grandsons 4 & 6 along with our older kids, ages 27 -35. All had a great time! Highly recommended.

Fun in the rain

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had an excellent stay these past few days. Despite the rain we were in a cozy, clean, and accommodating condo. We enjoyed watching the storm from our balcony and cooking great meals together. Was a last minute trip and I'm so glad we stayed here. Rain or sunshine you will love the view and the cozy atmosphere!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you. it was nice to be able to accommodate a last minute guest rain or shine. The weather was terrible and to know the condo and island were both enjoyed is wonderful.

Nice condo but Not Well Managed

  • 2 of 5
There are a few real positives to this condo:
1. The view/balcony is nice and accurately represented in the pictures.
2. It is nicely furnished with comfortable bedding and all you need to cook a small meal.
3. Although older, the property grounds are well maintained with clean pools and nice landscaping. It also has great security.
The reasons why I won't return to this condo:
1. It is not very clean. There were dead bugs everywhere including in the shower. Some are understandable near the balcony door, but not in a freshly cleaned shower. There was also dried popcorn and food crumbs around the condo when we arrived. There was a blood stained toilet seat and the bathroom rug was dirty. If you sit on the floor in black pants, you can expect to be covered in hair and dirt. It is sad because it is evident the owners have put effort into making the condo look nice, but this takes away from the nice furnishings.
2. They are very "skimpy" when it comes to stocking the apartment. We had 6 people staying 4 days and were given a half used roll of toilet paper as our replacement. They also gave us exactly 6 towels so each person gets one towel for the 4 days unless you would like to go to the Laundromat and wash them. If you do stay at this condo, make sure to pack extra towels, toilet paper, and paper towels to save yourself time from visiting the store. This isn't a huge deal, but would be nice to know before you go.
3. The property manager isn't very friendly or professional so if you do ask a question be prepare for a response with a tone that you are being an annoyance.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the lovely comments about the condo and wish to state why this guest had some issues.
We have had a love bug breeding issue on the island with Love Bugs so we have really been monitoring the condo before check in after each cleaning. We have all condos on a professional quarterly spraying that is non-toxic to animals or people. We can provide those records.

I personally went to the condo and cleaned any bugs that may have such in under the doors which does occur. It has been a complaint from many guests but we cannot do much about these harmless bugs. The past few weeks have been difficult because when you open the balcony doors they tend to come into the condos. They truly are harmless and it is just their mating season. I was not notified about this by the guest to offer the above explanation.

We do ask all guests to please notify us at once if they have any cleaning concerns or any concerns at all. We were not noticed on any of these issues. This guest only ask for daily maid service which is clearly not offered. I do not see why any guest would have stayed in a condo if it truly had these issues. We are open for calls 24 hours a day.

I want to remind future travelers to please read our contracts and advertisements well. This guest expected daily towel and linens services. She wanted daily cleaning of the condo. We do not provide this service.

We do explain to our guests that we offer a start up amount of paper products such as toilet paper and paper towels.
I wish the traveler would have called and expressed her concerns. We had no knowledge she was unhappy. She only sent text messages asking for the services we do not provide.
I do hope they enjoyed Galveston and I am glad to see they noted the love and time these owners have put into the condo to make it a wonderful experience for travelers.

I really try very hard to make each guest feel like they have my undivided attention but without knowledge that they are unhappy during their stay it is very hard to do.

Top Notch place to stay in Galveston

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was fabulous. Beautiful views, clean and updated décor. There is security on the premises so safety is never an issue. Located on west beach is a plus too because we were not in the middle of all the crazies but close to great restaurants and to the new Pleasure Pier. We will definitely be back.
