Description of the Galveston vacation condo rental
“Galveston Tropical Getaway - #2” at Maravilla is ready for your Galveston beach holiday. Our new one bedroom condo, at the popular ocean front Maravilla Resort Condominium, is located in the new rebuilt section of Maravilla right next door to "Galveston Tropical Getaway - #1" Both are decorated in cool relaxing colors with lots of art. Everything is BRAND NEW (with the exception of some artwork and the classic wicker furniture in the bedroom)!

We think of it as our Romantic Galveston Getaway and invite you to visit. This condo, one of our five personally owned and managed Maravilla condos, sleeps five. We have a queen-sized bed in the master bedroom with a mirrored closet wall, a queen sleeper sofa in the living room and a single adult size twin bed in a hide-away nook. All the floors and the balcony are tiled with 20 inch ceramic tile for a stunning look.

You can walk from the living room to your private balcony overlooking the largest of Maravilla’s three pools with a view of the hot tub and the Galveston Gulf in the distance. The well-designed modern kitchen is fully equipped with granite countertops and top of the line appliances. The cabinets are oak and includes a pantry. You can eat at the bar or sit at the rectanular table by the window or even grab a plate and dine on the balcony with the refreshing Gulf breezes. The bathroom has a tiled shower and a tub to soak after those long days in the sun.

This part of the Maravilla complex has all new construction. We are proud that our "Galveston Getaway Twins" are some of the first condos to be completed and ready to share with guests. In addition, we are delighted to report that the Marriott Hotel next door is now complete - along with a Starbucks for easy access for our condo guests.

I was really unsure at first, but when we walked in, this condo was everything to me & my family. The space was just right for me. Totally relaxed atmosphere, not to noisy & yet we enjoyed the pool as well. The condo had everything we needed from towels to cooking supplies! I will definitely return to this condo in August.

Great space, we'll be back.

We loved it, our dogs loved it and the wild rabbits around the property were totally entertaining. We're trying to figure out how to get back in June. The sooner, the better.

Great place to stay. Had a wonderful time and the condo fit our needs completely. It is always great to find a place that is pet friendly. Owners are great communicators. I would suggest this along with other properties to friends and family to stay. Will definitely contact them in the future if we decide to go back to Galveston! First time to Galveston Texas and we had a wonderful time. Not only was it a great place to stay but had the overall feeling of being safe and secure as well since property was well lit and patrolled at night. Pool area was awesome.

Marilyn Swanson

Owner's reply:

We are so pleased you were able to spend the extended Labor Day weekend with us. The weather was definitely awesome. And we too love the 3 Maravilla pools. We look forward to your next visit (our returning guests receive at least a 10% discount) and hope that eventually you can stay at all six of our Maravilla condos.

Great Condo

We had pleasure of staying a whole week in this wonderful condo. The condo was very clean and it had everything in from towels, kitchen appliances to even toiletries. It felt like home! We had a great view of the main pool. The pools were great. We even used one the outside grills by the pool one night. Marilyn was so easy to work with and we will definitely stay here again!!

Marilyn Swanson

Owner's reply:

Likewise it was a pleasure working with you. And we look forward to seeing you next summer. Our returning guests always receive at lease a 10% discount from published rates. BTW - we too enjoy grilling outside by the pool. Even though we have an outside grill at our home, there is something special about BBQing by the pool. Marilyn

Enjoyable Family Time!

We came to Galveston Island to spend our Spring Break and had a wonderful time. The condo was nicely furnished with just about everything we needed. The location is great just across from the seawall, within minutes from Wal-Mart and a quick drive to a lot of the Island Attractions. We will absolutely stay here again. Thank you for sharing your wonderful get-a-way!

Marilyn Swanson

Owner's reply:

We are delighted you enjoyed your stay in Galveston and at our condo! We look forward to your return visit and as you know - our repeat visitors always receive at least a 10% discount from published rates. Have a great summer.

Fantastic Weekend Getaway

My wife and I did a last minute trip to Galveston and it was awesome. After looking for awhile we contacted Marilyn who promptly responded and made the whole process easy and enjoyable. After we arrived the check-in was quick and painless. The condo was nice, clean and has great view of the pool. After a wonderful day at Moody Gardens we wanted to stay longer. She was so accommodating and let us check-out late. The whole weekend was perfect and I would definitely recommend anyone stay at Maravilla. Thanks Marilyn for everything.

Marilyn Swanson

Owner's reply:

We are so glad that you had a wonderful visit. As "hands-on owners", Larry and I believe in customer service and when possible enjoy being able to accomodate our guests for a late check-out. We look forward to your next visit. Remember - our returning guests receive at least a 10% discount from published rates.
