About the property

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

You will be staying in 'DolphinSmileVIEW', a new 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 shower spa experience begins as water cascades over the aqua water-fall bathroom sink. Aqua glass wall decorations, float next to sand colored tiles, bringing back beach memories from the day's activities. Then, explore the many shower options, possibly beginning with the tropical 'rain' shower head. Close your eyes and drift through a misty tropical rain forest, OR adjust the wand height to match your height and cycle through the many options; spray, mist or invigorating massage. Men, if you like to shave in the shower, heat the mirror (no fog) with a little hot water, turn off the large rain head and stay warm with the 4 body sprays. Too much fun!

The Maravilla property in Galveston was great.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Maravila condo in Galveston! It was very convenient to everything we were interested in. The condo was very clean, well organized and the kitchen was well equipped. The condo was updated beautifully and the views were amazing. We had a great view of the Gulf from the balcony, and a pond on the East hosting ducks paddling around. The condo was priced right according to all the amenities. Great place to stay when in Galveston.

My 2nd Home for a Week

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here from Friday, 11/11/2016 to Friday, 11/18/2016. What can I say... couldn't have asked for a better week of R&R. The view is fantastic, the ocean air is breathtaking and the condo is comfortable - I feel like I am home almost. We opened the sliding doors in the living room and the master bedroom every morning for the ever present sea breeze the soothing sound of the waves. Dave (the owner of the condo) was always available to answer any questions you had and he genuinely wanted to make sure your stay was as great as possible. The condo is fully loaded - all you have to do is bring yourself and food. All I can say is we will be back for sure... sooner rather than later! Thanks for everything, Dave.

Amazing last minute beach trip!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family. The location is fantastic, so close to everything within Galveston and right across from the beach. Multiple pools, though the heated pool was not actually heated but that could have been more of a seasonality thing. The condo is right by the airport, which my grandson just loved! We sat out on the large balcony and continuously watched the propeller planes fly over. Ample parking, elevators and on site staff for assistance. The owner had great communication and an immediate response time. He even gave us some recommendations for things to do with our family. We would absolutely consider staying here again next time!

Owner's Response: Hi Beverly, Yes, airplanes, so fun to watch the occasional (only a few each day) take off or land at the nearby airport. I flew 747 jumbo jets in my past life. Kids (and adults too) have a fascination with those big birds. We like watching the little birds (pelicans) too on the Island. The property manager said the heated pool was turned on Oct. 17, so it will be nice and warm for you next time if you visit during the winter. I'm glad you had a "perfect" stay. You made my day! Dave

Very clean!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean when you arrive and ready to make yourself at home. Fully supplied to cook any meal. All you have to bring is the food to cook. Overlooks the ocean and on the end of building. Huge master bedroom and bathroom. This was our second time renting this condo will definitely be back. His cleaning lady does a very good job at getting the place ready for guests.

Owner's Response: Thanks Julia! Welcome back. Like you, we have many returning guests, and some regulars too. I passed on your kind words to our cleaner. She works very hard (it is hard work), and welcomes the encouragement. See ya, Dave

Good weekend with the kids

  • 4 of 5

We had a fun time in Galveston with our kids for the weekend. The condo had what we needed and the beds were comfortable. The only negative, and why I wouldn't book here again, there is no beach access at this location. We walked across the street to go to the beach and it's all rocks with no beach. We had to drive down to a beach access each day. Overall, fun weekend and good accommodations.

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

The property is very nice and well taken care of. We were visiting Galveston with three young kids. They enjoyed the pool located below the condo while we loved spending time on the balcony with the amazing views. I would definitely consider staying at this property next time we visit.
