FAQ:

RESORT / ACCOMMODATIONS QUESTIONS:

1. Do you allow pets? Pets are allowed at the Maravilla Resort. We only allow non vicious, non-vicious breed pets that do not bark. Continual barking will disturb the guest adjacent to your condo and you may be asked to leave. Vicious pets, as precious as many are, will frighten other guests at the resort and present a risk to other guests. Also, our insurance does not allow vicious breeds on premises.

2. How far is the beach at the Maravilla Resort? There is not a swimmable beach in front of the Resort at this time. The Resort is located on the Galveston Seawall, however over the years, the storms have washed away the sand beach and the Ocean is up against the Seawall. You have to walk or drive West exactly 3/4 mile to a swimmable beach. There is ample parking on a concrete lot. There are other nice and less crowded beaches further west as well.

3. I see your condos sleep up to 6 for 1 bedroom and up to 8 for 2 bedroom condos. Can I bring more people? The city fire code does not allow us to have more than the specified number of guests per condo. If you have more guests than the condo accommodates, you should rent an additional condo.

4. Do you supply beach towels? We only supply bath towels. You may purchase beach towels at most of the local shops for $5 to $20 each.

5. Do you allow parties at the Resort? This is a family Resort. Most guests are here to enjoy a quiet and peaceful time with their children. The Resort management does not allow loud music or inappropriate behavior.

6. I see your check in / check out times are 3pm and 11am. Can I check in early, arrive late or check out late? You can arrive as early as you like and enjoy the amenities at the Resort. We will attempt to accommodate reasonable requests for early access to the condo and late check-out. It depends on the guests departing the morning of your arrival and arriving the day of your departure. It usually takes about 2 to 3 hours for our housekeepers to make ready a condo for the next guests so a 2pm check in is possible, but you must have authorization to check in early or check out late. You can only get authorization by texting me (936) 499-3941 THE DAY BEFORE YOUR ARRIVAL or DEPARTURE. Verbal authorizations will not be honored because I always tell everyone to text or email me the day prior to arrival or departure. If you want a 10am check in for instance, you should book the night before as well or if you want a 4pm departure, you should book that night as well. The latest checkout time is noon.

7. How do I get a key for the condo? We use KEYLESS door locks. You will not have to obtain a key! You will be given an access code prior to your arrival. Make sure you put my phone number in your speed dial in your phone in case you have problems with the door lock. The front desk for the HOA cannot give you access.

8. What if I have a problem during my stay? You should immediately call me at (936) 499-3941, or my assistant at 281-216-7628. We want your vacation to be stress free and will make every effort to rememdy any issues right away.

9. Do I have to pay $15 per night to park? I have 3 vehicles in my party, what do we do? Yes, the homeowner's association at the Maravilla Resort charges $15 per vehicle per stay. You will be required to pay this one-time $15/ vehicle by check or credit card at the time of your arrival. If you have multiple vehicles, you will have to purchase $15 parking passes for each.

10. Is there parking at the Resort? Yes, there is garage parking at both Resorts. If the garage is full, there is overflow parking in the uncovered areas of the resort. If you have a boat or motorhome, please contact me so we can make arrangements.

11. I will be arriving late. What do I do? You can arrive anytime after 3pm. The condos are self check in. Park and proceed to the condo and use the access code you were assigned to enter the condo. If you arriving extremely late, please try to be quiet so as not to disturb other guests adjacent and below you.

12. Are there grills at the Resort? Yes, there are BBQ grills located near each of the 3 pools. You are absolutely not allowed to use any type of grill on the balconies.

About Randy Juneau 323

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 323 chose Galveston Island

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!

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.

Clean, well maintained, easy to work with owner. Seemed much bigger than square footage.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our family of five. Owner will accommodate whatever needs you have. Place is really nice. When I saw square footage, I was a little afraid of it being too small. Not at all. With layout of condo, it seems much bigger. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!!

Everything was as expected! The place was clean, quiet area, and close enough to all the attractions Galveston has to offer. Everything we needed to prepare meals was available in the kitchen. Washer and dryer a huge plus. Thanks for letting us stay!

Perfect place for away from home

  • 5 of 5

Everything in our room made it so easy to pickup and continue life as usual but at the BEACH. We were traveling with a 2 year old and he settled in immediately and felt at home also. We were a bit afraid that having to travel down the road to the beach would be inconvenient but it was just great. We found it worked out better because if we needed something we were out and could get it accomplished while out. The only downer for our trip was that it started out cool and rainy but we stayed the complete week and the last few days were awesome. We did all the indoor stuff the first part of the week and stayed outdoors to get plenty of sun at the end. The TV was very nice too, the baby loved getting to see a variety of cartoons and kid stuff I recommend this room for anyone that wants to come to the beach and enjoy the sand, sun & beach, and still have a very nice place to chill in between. Thank You Randy for offering your condo. We were very impressed. Jennie

Great owner, location and atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

The condo is appointed and a joy to stay. Well decorated, it is comfortable, spacious and has excellent touches such as washer/dryer, new appliances and comfortable beds. There are really three reasons you want to stay here.

The first is Randy the owner. He is responsive and genuinely concerned about you and your family enjoying their vacation. Sending along a number of questions before our stay, Randy answered quickly and thoroughly. We experienced an issue when we arrived and Randy responded within minutes and had it handled within an hour.

The second is the location. You are close to what is important and away from what is super busy. The gulf is just steps away across Seawall Blvd. Don't want to walk? No problem. Sit on the porch and people watch at the pools or stare into the gulf. The view is excellent. Enjoying the view of the gulf from the patio is delightful and did much to enhance our enjoyment.

The third is the atmosphere, which is family based and relaxing. It was never too noisy and everyone was friendly. The elevator is fantastic to have and luggage carts are provided.

If you are considering staying here, do it now. Just don't pick the dates we'll be returning.

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.
