About Randy Juneau 303

1982 Graduate of LSU, B.S. Mechanical Engineering. Live in the Houston area since 1989. I manage my own properties and offer to you our luxury condos in Galveston. Our condos are new, clean and furnished to help make your vacation to Galveston the best possible. I enjoy helping people enjoy their vacations. For many, their vacation to Galveston in our condos may be something they have been waiting for months and this may be the only vacation they take all year or for years. We want our guests vacations to be worry free and for them to have the perfect accommodations.

Why Randy Juneau 303 chose Texas Gulf Coast

The Maravilla is truly a beautiful family resort and arguably the best Resort in Galveston for families to get together. It isn't a high rise resort but instead spread out over a larger area to give a more family friendly feeling. We often have families renting multiple condos from us for family reunions and the feedback we get about the resort is always outstanding and they all want to come back to the Marvilla!

This condo has a great view of the Gulf of Mexico on the 3rd floor of the 4 story resort. Like all of my other condos, it has recently been gutted and completely rebuilt on the interior. This condo is new July 2013. I purchased and had the interior built out to our specs. It has all of the best features: Top floor, designer appliances, desinger showers, king bed in Master & 2nd bedroom, 3D TV, free inernet TV, free WiFi. All of our condos are beautiful and built to perfection and are a great value for your family vacation! The Resort is also perfect! There are 3 pools, a hot tub, BBQ grills, volleyball, game room, some excercise equipment. The resort is very well maintained and is constantly undergoing improvements and upgrades.

What makes this condo unique

This Galveston Beach Resort and Luxury Condo have everything you need for the perfect family vacation! Just 5 minutes (2.4 miles) to Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn Water Park and less than 10 minutes to all other attractions. Heated Pool, hot tub.

A Surprise Around Every Corner. Galveston Island offers everything in a resort destination – beautiful accommodations, entertainment, shopping and 32 miles of GulfCoast beaches. Galveston ’s festivals, special events and attractions are enjoyable for Islanders and tourists alike. Fun & Sun! Galveston Island is famous for its many attractions. From Moody Gardens to Schlitterbahn to museums to shopping, we've got a vacation you won't soon forget! Galveston Island. Where the Texas Coast Begins. Perhaps Galveston's greatest attraction in recent years has been the advent of cruising. Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity and Princess Cruise Lines have all found a home at the Port of Galveston in recent years. These premier cruise ships will take passengers to various stops in Mexico, the Caribbean and more. Galveston Island Ferry, located on Hwy 87 (Ferry Road), continues to be one of Galveston's most popular attractions. Riders can park and ride the ferry or drive their vehicle aboard the ferry. Ferries run approximately every fifteen to twenty minutes and are free. The Great Storm, a multimedia presentation at the Pier 21 Theater, gives visitors a glimpse of the devastating 1900 Storm through a multi-image documentary experience. The 27-minute story gives actual accounts from diaries and letters of survivors during and after the storm. One of Galveston's most popular attractions is Moody Gardens, One Hope Boulevard. Work or play, this tropical destination is ideal for families and groups alike. Water your imagination and travel the oceans of the world at the Aquarium Pyramid. Step into the Rainforest Pyramid with thousands of tropical plants, exotic fish and birds. Explore the mysteries of science at the Discovery Pyramid, and take a rocking and rolling ride through the universe at the Ridefilm Theater. Get in the middle of the action at the 4D Special FX Theater. See spectacular images leap from the screen of the six-story IMAX 3D Theater and visit beautiful Palm Beach (seasonal). Docked at MoodyGardens , the Colonel, a 750-passenger, 19th-century-style sternwheeler, offers a unique view of the Gardens and an enjoyable cruise. And business or pleasure, the Moody Gardens Hotel offers spectacular views of the entire Island . With its huge array of awesome aquatic adventures, SchlitterbahnGalvestonIsland can be your personal happy place! During the summer season, the park offers amazing rides and attractions, including a large wave pool, uphill water coasters, thrilling speed slides, kid's water playgrounds, whitewater rapids, relaxing hot tubs, family raft rides, the Boogie Bahn surf ride and the exclusive Transportainment river system. Relax in steaming warm waters and enjoy summer fun all year long at Texas' first and only heated, indoor waterpark. (Both the air and water are always in the 80s!) The Wasserfest Heated Indoor Season, October through mid-April, features more than a dozen heated attractions in a tropical, heated indoor oasis. Our newest attraction? The Galveston Island Historic Pleasue Pier! Landry's envisions the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier becoming a preferred family destination with the same greatness as Chicago's Navy Pier, Santa Monica Pier and Coney Island's Luna Park. There is a first-class, nostalgically themed amusement park, reminiscent of another historic landmark, Galveston's Electric Park. Traditional rides include a 36-foot diameter, double-decker carousel and a 100-foot tall Ferris Wheel, and for the more adventurous, a steel roller coaster with a 100-foot vertical climb, 200-foot tall swing recognized as the highest ride in Texas and classic bumper cars for adults and children. Amusements as well as the restoration of the historical element of the Pier are anticipated to bring back memories of what the destination was known for in the late 1940s. The Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig and Museum, located at Pier 19, gives visitors an opportunity to step aboard an offshore rig and experience how oil and gas is produced offshore. Videos, interactive displays and models take patrons to offshore locations all over the world. Seawolf Park, Pelican Island via Seawolf Parkway (51st Street), was built on an immigration station site and offers a three-story pavilion with a view of Galveston harbor, picnic sites, a playground area and a lighted fishing pier. A World War II submarine (the USS Cavalla), a destroyer escort (the USS Stewart), and other military hardware are open for tours. Of course, no visit to Galveston is complete without a savoring the Island's historic homes and museums, which give visitors a glimpse of an era featuring both wealth and prosperity, as well as disaster and change.

Nice facility.

  • 4 of 5

For 80 dollar cleaning fee I would expect a little more attention to detail. Not worthy of complaining about though. Only other mentionable is you are across the street from beach however, it is rip rap. Nice for evening wade fishing. Must load up n travel half mile or so for actual sand beach. My grown children and I enjoyed the stay. Overall, great stay no disappointments.

Really nice, but not perfect

  • 4 of 5

To rate five stars, a place has to be perfect. Everything has to be thought of and taken care of in advance. And it needs to be upscale.

Maravilla 303 comes close.

The good: The owner, Randy Juneau, is very attentive and quick to answer questions and concerns. The condo is nicely finished and decorated. The linens are nice. The view from the living room and front bedroom, which overlooks the nice, big porch, is spectacular. Full-on ocean view. They take dogs.

The minor problems: greasy fingerprints on the kitchen cabinets; a sticky, detritus-studded spill in one of the drawers; a broken wall outlet and sink stopper; only one closet door in the bedroom; no hangers.

The YMMV: there are three fairly large steps up from the elevator to the level where the condo is, and a tiny little lip you are guaranteed to trip over at least once. Be aware if you are traveling with anyone who is mobility-impaired or if you have animals who need to go out frequently --- it’s a hassle.

The really-not-so-great: In the description of the condo, you’re told that there are bunk beds in the hall. What you’re not told is that the “hall” is the entry way of the condo. There’s about enough room to get the door open and boom, bunk beds. There is no hall to speak of. Also, despite what the photos show, this unit has no washer-dryer. You have to use the coin laundry down the hall --- and it does say that in the description, but the pics in the ad confused the issue a bit. The internet went out and though Randy gave us several suggestions to try, none of them worked and he couldn’t get it repaired while we were there. The air conditioner does not work well. (Randy had answers for why things were broken, but they didn’t get fixed. Then again, we were only there two nights).

Who will like this place: If you are a big, boisterous family who doesn’t mind being right on top of each other 24/7 and sleeping in the hall, doesn’t mind the constant traffic noise from Seawall Blvd right below your windows or from your neighbors’ balconies, this is great spot for you . You’re literally across the street from the beach, there’s great pool, you can cram a lot of people in, and you’re close to everything.

Who should not rent this place: Anyone with mobility issues or animals who need to go out frequently ; anyone looking for someplace quiet and restful; anyone who prefers uncluttered space.

In short: this was not the right place for us, but it will be great for someone else.

Owner's Response: Thanks for providing a review! I hope you guys enjoyed your stay. I couldn't find where there is shown laundry facilities inside the condo, perhaps you meant to book a different condo because I do have another Ocean Front with laundry inside and no steps to enter. The 2 steps required to climb are notated in the advertisements. I'm sorry you may have missed that. Nearly all of the condos at this resort have bunk beds close to the back door and they are in the hallway. The units were designed this way. I'm addressing the fingerprints on the cabinet doors with my housekeeping contractor. I'm so sorry you had difficulty with the internet. It's very strange because the housekeeper checked it when she cleaned after your departure and it was working. Nevertheless, I have requested a tech to be dispatched from DirecTV. I hope these items didn t dampen your stay.
