Overview

About the property

King Suite, Queen, Adult size Bunks, Leather Sleeper Sofa, 2 full Baths Sleeps 8

You will be staying in 'DolphinSmileVIEW', a luxury condo sitting on the seawall of Galveston Island. Pam & I invite you to share our latest creation, a playful dolphin theme for the family while still saving a little luxury for you. Pamper your senses with soft new leather and sandy-beach colored tile.

Your price includes a discount for balcony closure. The HOA has closed a number of balconies for inspection/repair and will not be accessible during your stay. You will still have a great top-floor view through the sliding glass door and huge window, but won't be able to access the balcony.

While this is out of my control, I have reduced our prices to help you make the best decision for your family. I hope this is a good compromise for both of us.

The over-sized master bedroom has a wonderful water view from the king-size bed. The other bedroom sleeps two in a queen size bed. The hallway area hosts 2 adult sized bunks. The leather sofa sleeper folds out for 2 more, right in front of the movie theater with surround sound. Enjoy!

This condo also has a convenient washer/dryer.

Save food budget in your fully equipped kitchen.

Wherever you choose to stay, I hope you bring home many special Galveston memories.

Dave

Great place with ocean view, but away from Seawall Boulevard.

  • 5 of 5

This is an awesome place to stay in Galveston. A really comfortable, and quiet "home base" to explore Galveston from, with great views. There were some fix-ups going on so we weren't able to use the balcony while we were staying here, but even then the views of the little "lagoon" and the ocean were really nice. Plus it is set back away from the busy Seawall Boulevard, which made it much quieter.

My son especially liked the bunk setup. Also my wife really appreciated how clean the condo was when we arrived. If it is available, I'd suggest booking it!

Vacation with the grandkids !

  • 5 of 5

The property was great. Quiet when needed but close to everything. Dave the owner was very accomadating to us and made our stay that much better. The many pools were clean all the time. The pool by our condo felt like it was private to us. The larger pool was large enough to where it did not feel crowded. GREAT PLACE! I would go again without hesitation !! Thanks Dave !!

Nice place

  • 3 of 5

Got hit with the bad smell when we first open the door. The smell so strong, we have to open all windows and doors for awhile.

The Condo balcony got problems, it's not safe and not allowed access to it.

Wish they told me about the balcony before I booked.

Other than that we got a time in Galveston.

Owner's Response: Hi Henry, Thanks for the feedback. As you and I discussed, the smell might have come from the garage disposal. Maybe the previous guest had a successful fishing trip, haha! My cleaner has freshened up the disposal for the next guest. I will continue to inform guests of the the balcony closure, and we are putting chairs out on the walkway for guests who might like to sit outside. Again, thanks for staying with us, Dave

Great view

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time during our stay. The view was fantastic and the pools were great. The condo was clean and the owners were very attentive and wanted to make sure everything was good while we were there. We will stay here again next time we make a trip to Galveston.

The property was great. Very clean. Very quiet. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Truly enjoyed my visit. The property was clean. The location is great. The evenings were quiet. The condo 356 was beautiful and very accommodating with the essentials needed to have a great time. Not to mention the cleanliness of the condo was beyond expectations. I would definitely stay again. I recommend Maravilla complex to all my friends and family and more. Definitely condo 356 great View of the beach. ~Lorraine

The new Schlitterbahn indoor/outdoor water-park and Moody Gardens wait for fun just 2 miles away. The new Galveston Pleasure Pier. The pier will feature a number of traditional rides, including a 36-foot double-decker carousel and a 100-foot tall Ferris Wheel. For the more adventurous, visitors will be able to ride a 200-foot tall swing, considered the highest ride in Texas.
