Enjoy a king size bed in BOTH bedrooms. We offer a washer/ dryer inside the condo. We also have secure Wifi so you can work or surf the internet while enjoying our amazing views.

The guest bath includes beautiful tiled shower and granite countertop with undermount sink. The master bath features a jetted tub with a gorgeous tile surround.

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

I definitely recommend this condo. It is very bright, cheerful and well decorated. It was also very clean and well maintained. Kitchen is well equipped including dishes, mixing bowls and pots and pans. Pools were great! Also nice to have covered parking and luggage carts!

It was a perfect home away from home. The unit has everything we needed and more.

We loved the unit and the huge pool of the property. The kitchen has everything we wanted and the beds were very comfortable. We did not want the vacation to end.

OK but not awesome

  • 3 of 5

To begin, the condo is in a great location, well decorated, and well appointed. It goes down hill from there. Read your rental agreement: no early check in...even if you're traveling with a disabled veteran. We wanted to get in early to avoid the rain & let the aforementioned veteran rest. Managemnt's response was a terse " read your rental agreement." Most of the time, people respect the sacrifice of our wounded warriors and will accommodate anything. Not Here. Then there was the outright hostile nature of the HOA management when we got our parking pass. It's obvious they don't like short term renters. It was also rather shocking to find folks openly snorting cocaine at the big, resort-like pool at 5pm on a Friday. Finally, don't rent this if you like to sleep. The residents in the unit above must be vampires with hooves for feet. They woke us up with a symphony of stomping each night between 2-3am.

Owner's Response: This is truly sad. We were never noticed that anyone coming into our condo had a disability. We would have accommodated the best we could if anyone was disabled. The guest did ask for an early check in and was denied as this is posted as an option we cannot offer before arrival when you book. You cannot come accommodate a 12 AM check in and offer a sanitized condo in the manner we expect from our cleaning crew and quality control inspection. Please read reviews from the people who have followed our rules. It's clear this person is just mad they were not allowed to break the rules. Reviews like this make me very sad. Our HOA front office is very kind. we checked with the HOA and they did not have any complaints noting any known drug abuse. The office was open and anyone alarmed should have called the police, reported such to the property manager, or notified the HOA front office. Please note we do observe quiet hours at the complex effective at 11 PM. We provide a number for a guest to call at anytime. The guest could have easily called regarding any noise issue. We would have addressed such. Update- After several attempts to contact the guests about said alligations they will not communicate with us. We take reviews very seriously and would like to be afforded the right to investigate these claims. this truly is the first time we heard the guest had an issue. Thank you Christina S

For our 5th annual girls weekend, we picked this condo and we are so glad we did. For 7 women and all of our stuff we arrived with, this condo was perfect and had plenty of room. The condo was perfectly decorated, it had all the essentials needed for the cooking we wanted to do. We even used the grill at the pool area. Speaking of the pool area, it was clean and quiet. The views from the balcony were spectacular. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this condo.

Very nice place - just as Picts. Portrayed it to be.

  • 4 of 5

Well decorated, furnished very well, including all the living necessities. Location perfect. It,s the only unit on the east side where you can enjoy sitting on the balcony without the sun bearing down on you all day. It's also at the end of the building, so parking is just below the unit.

Very enjoyable stay.

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.
