Description of the Galveston vacation condo rental
“Galveston Tropical Getaway - #1” at Maravilla is ready for your Galveston beach holiday. Our first one bedroom condo, at the popular ocean front Maravilla Resort Condominium, is located in the new section and decorated in cool relaxing colors with lots of art.

It is next door to our other one bedroom condo at Maravilla, "Galveston Tropical Getaway - #2". This condo, one of our six personally owned and managed Maravilla condos, sleeps five with a queen-sized bed in the bedroom with a mirrored closet wall, a queen sleeper sofa in the living room and a single bed in a hide-away nook. All the floors and the balcony are tiled with 20 inch ceramic tile for a stunning look.

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 everything you could need for cooking an elegant dinner at home. Grab a snack at the bar with the swival bar stools or enjoy a meal on the balcony with the round table and four chairs. In keeping with the tropical theme, our balconies feature live plants. Please give our plants a drink when you visit and they are thirsty.

The bathroom is tiled with a double walk-in shower. You can enter the bathroom from either the master bedroom or the hall so there is privacy for all. This part of the Maravilla complex has all new construction.

Exceeded our Expectations

February 24, 2015

My husband and I loved our tropical getaway to Galveston. The condo was exactly as described, no surprises. It was very clean and convenient to all the attractions. Marilyn went out of her way to accommodate us and was very helpful in planning our trip. It was nice to escape the cold and spend a few days in the 60's in the middle of February. I would highly recommend Marilyn and her condo.

Owner's reply:

Larry and I enjoyed meeting you and sharing all the special items and attractions of Galveston with you. We are happy you were able to visit for a few days and hope that next time you can stay for a week or longer. We guarantee, you will not run out of things to do in Galveston. Remember too we have 7 condos and your returning guest discount is for any of our condos.
