Description of the Galveston vacation condo rental
Although the name of this condo is 'Galveston Tropical Sunrise' - one might think of it as Tequila Sunrise. This spacious one bedroom condo that sleeps five has many special features.

Sliding doors from living room to the balcony where you can watch the moon rising over the Gulf or Lagoon Lake with a glass of wine or drink coffee in the morning as the sunrises (with a round table and seating for 4 and cushioned bench);

Master bedroom with a king sized bed, 32” flat screen TV with DVD and separate entrance to bathroom as well as his and her light fixtures for reading in bed;

Walk-in large travertine shower with a seat and an entrance to the bathroom from the hall or master bedroom;

A brand new fully-equipped sparkling clean kitchen with white self-closing cabinets, new appliances and everything you could possibly need to cook a gourmet meal or warm up leftovers from one of the great Galveston eateries and gaze at water as you cook;

Cozy day bed area with a twin bed and pillows;

Combined living/dining area with bar stools for dining at the counter, a 42” flat screen TV with DVD player (and my eclectic collection of over 20 DVDs) and a queen sleeper sofa;

Rectangular table and 4 chairs in the living area where you can dine, play games or set up your computer while watching the birds in the Lagoon Lake;

Combined living area features white wainscoted walls and a queen sleeper sofa;

The floor and the balcony are finished with 16 inch travertine tiles - brick lay - for ease in cleaning.

Beautiful condo

January 3, 2015

We stayed here over Christmas and couldn't have rented a better place to spend our holiday. The condo is decorated and updated and very nice. The Maravilla complex was clean and we didn't have any problems or issues at all. Enjoyed great food in Galveston, walking the seawall, and the Christmas festivities at Moody Garden. Will be coming back for sure!

Owner's reply:

We are delighted that you were able to enjoy Christmas at our condo. We hope you will make it an annual tradition (Remember our returning guests receive at least a 10% discount from posted rates.) By the way, we also treasure our visits to Moody Gardens over the holidays.

Marilyn (and Larry)
