About Marisol Mendez

My name is Marisol Mendez and I manage Miracle of the Sea Vacation Beach Home for my mother-in-law. My husband Estevan built this dream home for my mother-in-law( Maqui). Maqui took an interest in having a beach house as an investment/getaway for the family. Every year, for the past 10 years, Maqui has taken the initiative to plan the family vacations for us throughout the United States and one in Acapulco, Mexico. Maqui would make plans for her 2 sons, daughter-in-laws, 1 daughter, son-in-law, and 9 grandkids. We wanted to make the best out of the short time and cherish those memories. Where your vacation is equally as important as where you stay.

Marisol Mendez purchased this house in 2012

Why Marisol Mendez chose Texas Gulf Coast

Miracle of the Sea is great place to relax and building some fond memories. It is a direct result of the likes and dislikes of our vacation experiences. Miracle of the Sea truly is unique. The property description and pictures don’t do it justice. We have gone above and beyond the norm to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We enjoy it every chance we get and now available for others to enjoy it as well.

Great Family Trip

  • 4 of 5

We had a group of 13 and there was plenty of room for everyone. The public beach access was only about a mile up the street from the house and it was nice that you could park your car right on the beach and set up for the day. The Seven Sea Grocery store has mostly everything you need grocery wise unless you just need a Wal-Mart type store this place was great.

The elevator was a nice luxury to have for my aunt who would not have been able to come on the trip if we didn't have it.

Would recommend the house for anyone looking for a nice relaxing spot away from all the hustle and bustle tourist part of Galveston. The drive in town is about 15-20 minutes so it was great for us.

Great property :)

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to spend a fun weekend in this property; all the amenities are great. The house was clean and comfortable. There's enough space for all to have a great time. My husband enjoyed the huge grill and we all enjoyed the outdoor space. Although the house is not right at the beach, a short 5 minute walk will get you there.

The owners are are very nice and always available.

We'll visit this property again.

Great Spring Break Stay!

  • 4 of 5

Absolute delightful place to stay!!

We rented the Miracle of the Sea due to having an elevator for our handicapped brother-in-law and it was a fantastic place to stay! I would recommend not only for people who need a wheelchair accessible place but for anyone looking for a quiet and spacious place for a large family or friends get together. House is decorated nicely and there is ample space for large groups; huge deck with plenty of seating off the main living room; large living room/living room/dining area (two dining areas where you can sit 16 easily). Master bedroom was nice with a roll in shower for our brother-in-law and more than enough space to move around. 3rd floor had three furnished bedrooms (double beds with a single bunk bed) and a fourth room that had a small murphy bed in it. All the rooms had ample space to put down blow up beds (all 5 of our boys wanted to sleep in the same room!) and the living room upstairs was a great place for watching movies or playing Xbox.

Huge backyard for all sorts of games; picnic tables, huge smoker and a volleyball net already in the ground. Nearest beach access was about a 10 min. walk so not bad at all. Area was very quiet so a great peaceful place to hang out! Small market near by in Jamaica Beach if you need some quick things but about a 45 min. round trip back to Galveston for bigger selection.

Marisol was easy to work with, easy to get hold of and very accommodating when we had an issue with water in the elevator shaft.

All in all, a wonderful place to escape from for a few days with friends and loved ones! We will be back!

Multiple family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I brought our kids down for Labor Day weekend while our husbands had a "guys retreat". We loved the layout of the house - all the kids stayed upstairs and the adults got some quiet time on the main floor. Large dining room table made group meals so easy. We hope to make this an annual event! Thanks, Marisol.

Perfect place for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed all the personal touches in this property. From the decks, playground for the kids, big grill, fun bunkbeds, cozy living area.. this place had it all. The owners were very responsive and I truly appreciated that from them. We are thinking of booking this place yearly and I would recommend this property to other families.

Thank you, Marisol!
