Galveston Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, king and queen bed, Sleeps 8 with queen sleeper sofa and bunk beds.

Enjoy our top floor beach, pool, grounds and historical Seawall view as you sit on the patio. The photos of our view are accurate and we hope our guests will enjoy hours spending time on the patio which is why the owners picked this condo.

Stay in a private condo with a full kitchen that satisfies all your needs versus a hotel that does not have this accommodation.

Unlike a hotel you get the comforts of a full kitchen and the choice to dine in instead of eating out your entire vacation.

The Maravilla complex has 3 pools, a hot tub, outdoor grilling, a gym/ business area, and much more. Our east side pool is currently scheduled to be heated by the end of 12/13 so you can enjoy a nice heated swimming pool during the cooler winter months. We have convenient restrooms located in the pool areas.

Convenient elevators throughout that are also located close to the condo. Coin operated laundry facilities right down the hall. Everything is very easy to access.

New to the east side of the complex is a go cart rental track and arcade. Walk over and enjoy. we are also within walking distance of putt putt golf, 1st class batting cages, and much more.

We are minutes away from many beach pocket parks, Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn. If you want to know more about our local attraction please contact our property manager. Be sure to visit Jimmy's on the pier. The pier is within walking distance and serves all meals. They also rent fishing poles if you would like to enjoy some additional time on the pier fishing.

Full kitchen with all you need, DVD player, and 2 tv's. Wifi services provided in the condo.

About Christina Stevens, Realtor, Property Manager, Realty Associates

We love the Maravilla and Galveston. We want to open our condo up so others can enjoy their time at on complex and our this beautiful island.

Our condo is on the historical Seawall toward the west end so easy to get to any of the attractions and restaurants. A bit away from the hustle of the main island yet minutes away fro all the fun. The beach is right across the street.

Beautiful Pools!

  • 5 of 5

This location has 3 pools and one jacuzzi. One of the pools is advertised as the biggest pool in Galveston and another was heated which was good for us since we were trying to swim in low 80 degree weather! We loved it, however I did not pay attention to the fact that this only has once shower and with 2 families sharing one condo it did get tough with the shower situation but other than that it was great! Great location close to everything with an amazing view! The place is a little dated but for what we paid it was totally worth every penny. Would stay again but as a family of one not two.

Good Condo for the Price

  • 4 of 5

We had a family of 8 that stayed at the Maravilla. Everyone had a good place to sleep and enjoyed our stay very much. The kids really liked the pools and Mom and Dad liked the hot tub. Our view of the Gulf was very nice being on the 3rd floor. I would recommend sending the detailed information email the day before arrival. I did not get the detailed email until 1:30pm of my arrival day. I assumed that we would check into the office upon arrival but they closed at 6:00pm and we did not arrive until 6:10pm. I don't think they could have helped with the needed information anyway as they only handle the parking permit, pool access and exercise room access. Thankfully I received a call back from the property management person who was able to tell me my condo number and access code.

The property management person was also very quick to respond later on a couple of maintenance issues that were quickly resolved.

I think the TV may need to be replaced soon as it had a line going thru the middle but we did not report it to maintenance.

Overall, we were very satisfied with our stay and will recommend this property to my friends.

Perfect for our weekend girls trip!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this rental for a weekend girls trip to celebrate the bride! When we arrived it was well decorated and clean. The kitchen was great. We popped a few frozen pizzas in the oven and put all of our beverages in the clean, spacious fridge. That night, we noticed that the kitchen sink was not working. I sent a quick email to the property management and even though it was late, received a prompt response! The next day, a very nice gentleman came by and fixed our sink right up. For our trouble, I was refunded the sanitation fee and they even left some complimentary appetizer cards for local restaurants. That was way more than I expected! The pool was great. We spent all day Saturday by the large resort style pool. It was not overcrowded and we were able to bring down our own snacks and beverages with no problem. We had plenty of room to shower and primp for dinner on Saturday night - if 8 ladies can do that seamlessly, there's plenty of room. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. The beds and pillows were comfortable. The balcony had plenty of seating and a great view. Parking was no issue. The HOA staff was friendly and easy to work with. The only suggestion I have for future guests is to crank the AC down to your desired temp the moment you arrive (it takes a while to cool the place off, which is no big deal and totally expected for a rental of this type). It WAS cool when we arrived - not hot by any means - we just wanted it cooler! Thanks for a great stay!

Great condo & location

  • 5 of 5

We had five total people and had plenty of room. The condo is stocked with most everything you would need. It had an amazing view with an oversized balcony that was the best place to have your morning coffee. We loved the pools also. We had the best time and would definitely reserve it all over again.

OK but Needs Some work

  • 3 of 5

Stayed there for a Friday through Monday morning recently. Overall nice but there are some things that need attention.

Pools and pool areas were great. Clean and well maintained.

Items in Kitchen were great; plates, pots, pans, utensils, etc.

Lots of towels and linens etc.

Good WiFi

Toilet need some attention and should have a door or curtain between the toilet and the shower/tub area.

In the unit itself the A/C filter was caked with dust. Written annotation on the filter said it was from Feb. We called and they replaced it within a couple of hours; Thanks!

Mold and moldy smell under sink from leaky disposal.

Moldy shower curtain/liner.

Four table lamps in the unit and two of them worked.

Wall clock did not work; battery corroded and dead.

The complex itself: Metal railings on stairs showed some serious rust in some places; rusted through in spots.

Elevator was VERY noisy (and smelly) with no inspection certificate or "certificate on file at: xxx" markings. Supposedly there are two others elevators on property but they did not work.

Parking was in issue on Saturday night party night. They have tandem parking for those with two cars for a given condo unit. On Saturday night with some pool partying going on, there were some two-car slots blocked by single cars and all but one of those did not have the parking passes in them. Office closes at 6. Security guard told us we could not park up front but offered no solution when informed all slots in garage were taken or blocked. Sunday morning office does not open until 10 so could not ask about the vehicle (without parking pass) that blocked us in.

Amazing pool and views of the ocean

  • 4 of 5

My family and our friends family stayed for four days. The condo was nicely decorated. The kitchen was well stocked. The balcony has a wonderful view of the ocean and one of the pools. There was an umbrella and table outside to enjoy morning or evening meals at. The beds were comfortable. We loved the pools. There are three to choose from. There are grills and picnic tables set next to the pool area. I liked that the condos use codes to get in so you don't have to keep track of keys. There were a couple of negatives though. I didn't feel like the sheets provided were very clean. They really didn't smell great and there were lots of hairs on them. Also, none of the bathroom doors closed all the way or locked. This could lead to some embarrassing situations considering you have two families sharing a small space. Those were the only negatives. Our trip was amazing and I would considering renting this condo again.
