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 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 condo is remodeled beautifully! Great views from the balcony and quiet. Dave and Pam couldn't have been easier to work with. Thanks again for the great memories this weekend!

Pleased

  • 5 of 5

5 Stars: extremely clean; comfortable beds, TV's in all rooms, Great patio with ample seating and beautiful views; great kitchen; laundry facilities, private as we were the end condo.

4 Stars: We were two couples. There was not enough seating in the living room for the four of us to comfortably sit and visit in the evening. Only a couch, and the two-chair dinette. Can't have it all. For the price, it was wonderful.

Can I pick 6 stars!?

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this property and the owners were fantastic. We went for a girls weekend, to relax and enjoy the views. Couldn't have asked for a better spot, better views, and a smoother experience thanks to Dave and Pam!! I would definitely book this property again and I highly recommend it!

Great Place to Stay

Wonderfully clean and well appointed condo. Balcony was a real plus with views of the water and also overlooking well manicured lawns. Dave was great to work with on all the logistics - extremely helpful and friendly.

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.

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.
