The Maravilla Resort has 3 pools. One of the largest resort pools on the island. The pool seen from our balcony is heated. We have a hot tub, charcoal grills, and some of the most beautiful tropical grounds. Our pools are never overcrowded due to the size of our grounds.

The Maravilla is about 5 minutes from Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn. We have Jimmy's Fishing Pier and restaurant within walking distance.

We are within walking distance of go carts and an arcade center.

We are at the very Western end of the Seawall. far enough from all the hustle and bustle of the island but close enough to be minutes away from all the attractions and wonderful food Galveston has to offer.

About Christina Stevens

We have 2 condos at the Maravilla. As about condo 352- Eat-Sleep-Beach if you are interested in another condo that sleeps 6or a larger family trip.

Christina Stevens purchased this condo in 2014

Why Christina Stevens chose Texas Gulf Coast

We chose to purchase at the Maravilla condos because of the great location that is minutes from all the great activities in Galveston. The Maravilla has wonderfully landscaped grounds with a nice river running from front to back. The pools are incredible with a large free form pool with a cabana for your convenience. Below our condo there is a third pool which we like since it is a little quieter and very convenient.

What makes this condo unique

One of the things we like best about the Maravilla is the convenient location to Galveston activities yet directly around the Maravilla it is on the quieter end of the seawall so you can get away from it all if you want to. It is easy to cross the street and walk up and down the seawall and look for dolphins playing and birds soaring overhead. The atmosphere is relaxing and the property has spacious grounds which provide enough room to never feel crowded! Enjoy our balcony which spands both the den and master bedroom and the view includes a panoramic view of the Gulf of Mexico.

Coming soon the city has plans to expand beach front entrance in front of our resort. More details later in 2015.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our experience was great! First, working with the Galveston Real Estate team exceeded expectations. The were responsive, flexible in our requests and provided very clear rental instructions.



As for the condo, it was phenomenal. This unit was all new inside, very clean and well kept. The best compliment I can pay is that I would certainly recommend this unit and working with Galveston Real Estate to others and would definitely stay here again in the future.





Thank You

What's not to like ?!?!

  • 5 of 5

The unit has great views in 3 different directions. The owner has furnished and decorated the place very thoughtfully and with the expected "beach feel". My girlfriend and sisters gave it the infamous women's "seal of approval" which pretty much much says it all.

Wonderful Get-a-way!!!

  • 5 of 5

Three adult siblings and I arrived early June one of the first weeks with no rain every day and before the temperatures soared! Perfect weather!!! The condo was exceptionally clean, beautifully decorated, comfortable, quiet and peaceful. The views from all three sides of this corner condo were excellent! Three of us are in the 55+ group and love to walk on the Seawall @ 6am and go birding at various places on the island. We especially enjoyed breakfast on the balcony. It was very relaxing; all of us wanted to stay longer. We'll be back!!!

Great Galveston retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. It was welcoming and beautifully decorated. The beds were comfortable and the patio large with a wonderful view of the pool below and ocean. We had everything we could ask for. It made us feel at home and comfortable throughout our weekend getaway. Thank you!

Fantastic! Just as expected!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was just as pictures described, beautiful view, large balcony, plenty of room for me and 4 teenage girls, very clean and nice. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils, plates, silverware, Keurig, etc. We had no problems during our stay. Check in was easy and Christina was a pleasure to work with. If we are ever in the Galveston area again, we will definitely stay here again. Thank you!

The property was inviting. The decor was pleasant and had beachy feel.

  • 3 of 5

The unit is small in size. The living area: couch fits 3 people, there is a chair that can be moved to face tv but makes the area crowded. You can sit on stools to watch tv. If your a family who likes to cook in, kitchen area is very tiny. If you also like to eat together you have to eat at the make shift table from buck beds, or stools along snack bar, we didn't care for this fieature. To play family games your have sit at living area coffee table with the bench seats pulled out from under it. Not comfortable. The master bath jacuzzi tub is a very small tub. Beds are comfortable and views are nice.very clean unit. We were robbed of a quiet times our entire stay. The upstairs family was very inconsiderate and rude to the neighbors around them. We had constant pounding, jumping and running.

Owner's Response: I am not even sure how to respond to this. This guest is not even registered with us. The Maravilla has set rules for quiet time which were enforced. She simply has inferred things about the condo that are not true. We are so very sorry she does not understand this is a second floor condo. In the 4 year history of managing this condo you can see we have WONDERFUL reviews. I am not sure who would want to sit more then 3 on a standard couch. This condo is also 815 square feet which is higher then the average 778 square feet in all other 2 bedrooms. This kind of thing makes me very sad to see as a property manager. My owners work so hard to give you all they need. I do hope as a traveler you do read the other valid reviews. We certainly understand the opinions of our other guests are important but this is simply note true. I am sorry my owners have to go through invalid reviews like this that are just made to be harmful to them. The owner was informed above us as well of the complaint. His family did tell their small children to please go to bed at 10 PM. Quiet time on vacation at the Maravilla Resort is 11 PM. As a mother I have no issue with my children staying up till 11 and enjoying our time away. We hope other travelers respect that. For 4 years they have.
