Great time every time!

  • 5 of 5

We stay in this condo frequently. The owners are very helpful and the staff are wonderful! The condo is roomy enough for the 4 of us to be comfortable and have a few friends over. The upgrades are very nice! The condo staff enjoy hosting get togethers at the lagoon pool occasionally too! It's a great atmosphere here with a great view. They even have cute little bunnies running around the property! I love sitting on the balcony watching the waves crash and the pelicans diving down for fish!

Great complex- ok villa

  • 3 of 5

this is the first VRBO review that we have ever given that included cons.

Pros: Beautiful view- fantastic location- LOVED the complex, very safe, well kept, BEAUTIFUL grounds. The few upgrades in the villa were very nice, the countertops were nice, the bathroom sink was also pretty. Easy to find. The bathroom and kitchen were very clean. The kids loved playing CLUE. Perfect view of the pools and grounds.

Cons: the kitchen was terribly under equipped, if you were cooking for 1, the pots & pans were barely sufficient. We had to buy a pot large enough to cook for 4 and had to really be creative with using the 2 very small pans provided. A toaster would be nice, as well as a colander and potato peeler. No mixing bowls.

The queen sized bed was squeeky, wobbly and very uncomfortable. The lower bunk mattress torturous. It would be nice to have 1-2 more bar stools. The seats on the 2 provided were dirty and were not attached. The carpet was also dirty. The couch and the pillows on it were dirty. No DVD player. We even bought a cord to try and hook up our portable DVD player, no luck.

We would surely return to Maravilla, but, sadly not to this unit.

First time in Galveston

  • 3 of 5

This unit is on a good start its cozy comfortable with a great view. The downside of the unit was on arrival and unpacked wanted a drink, no ice maker? Had to drag back out to local station for ice. Has a minimal amount of cooking utensils, we tried to make pancakes and ended up using a decorative pitcher to mix pancake mix. Many of the cups had been put away dirty, the dishwasher arm had been taken off and thrown in the bottom, so whoever stayed there before me didn't do a good job manual washing and put them away anyway. I put dishwasher arm back on and it worked fine. The patio furniture at unit amounted to 2 very old chairs and foot rest, no tables, minimum. This unit has a great location just needs a few upgrades.

Very clean, great view of gulf

  • 5 of 5

Great room and close to everything we needed. We traveled around the island and we also went back to the Houston area. We would highly recommend this room. Besides looking over the gulf, we also had a great view of the pool area. Everything was well taken care of. We had 2 adults and will stay again.
