Sunny condo on a rainy weekend

April 7, 2014

Our weekend stay was more than expected. Despite the dreary weather which was expected, the sunny disposition of the condo made our honeymoon stay very enjoyable. It is the perfect place for couples to stay, yet is expandable for slightly larger groups. Our short stay did not afford total usage of the full entertainment of condo and site forms for fun, but there's always another time! The booking was made exclusively for the reason of being able to smoke on the balcony ( a real challenge in bad weather) , but this condo offers a home feel that hotels can not match without exorbitant suite rates. Therefore, the hotel's loss is the condo's win! Kudos to Bada Beach!

Great Stay in Galveston

July 7, 2013

Having stayed here two years in a row, we strongly recommend this gem of a property. The condo complex is directly across the street from the Gulf and offers convenient and secure parking. The condo is a top floor unit, so no one is above you. Fantastic view of the gulf. Unit displays a beautiful modern décor that is well maintained and spotlessly cleaned. Kitchen offers full amenities with stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher and dinnerware, etc; all you need to make delicious meals of your choice. Plus, all linens and towels are supplied for your convenience. The updated balcony and the installation of Wi-Fi this year was a great plus. The condo is extremely comfortable and quiet. Although separated from the main traffic flow it is still convenient to all the popular restaurants and all tourist hot spots. When Galveston is your destination of choice, make sure you check out this gem.

Beautiful Condo with many details!

July 26, 2011

My family and I stayed at this condo for three nights in July. I must say that I was thoroughly impressed with all of the attention to little details. The condo was decorated beautifully and stocked with anything that you may ever need and more! The condo was very clean and view was beautiful. Communicating with Valerie was also great. She gave us some ideas on where to eat and what to do. This was our first family trip to Galveston and I hope to return again soon. My children are teens and they even loved the condo. I absolutely recommend this condo. You will not be disappointed. One more thing - Valerie returned our deposit in a very quick manner. She's a pleasure to work with!

Great Galveston Getaway

June 13, 2011

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this very clean, nicely decorated condo on the seawall. Morning coffee and late evening wine were sipped on the balcony while sea breeze delighted. We like the west beaches of Galveston better than seawall beaches so this location was very convenient. The kitchen was fully equipped which made fixing breakfast easy. We swam nightly in the resort pool and used the hot tub, too...very nice. The bed was comfortable but a little small for us (we are used to a king-size bed). The walk-in shower was great. We would be happy to stay again at the Bada Beach Condo.

Lovely Condo

April 13, 2011

My husband and I rented this lovely condo for 4 days. However, at the last minute circumstances changed and our traveling companions needed a place to stay as well. A quick call to Valerie and we had approval for 4 occupants instead of 2. (Four adults made the unit a bit crowded). The condo is well maintained and has great views from the balcony and we very much enjoyed our stay!



Carrollton, TX

Wow.....Couldn't have asked for a better vacation

June 12, 2010

Everything was first class about the condo. Valerie was absolutely fabulous to deal with even at the last minute and very timely with responses. Thanks for allowing us the use of an absolutely beautiful property. You missed nothing in the details. The only disappointment was we couldn't stay longer!!!!!!!!



Bedford, TX USA

Perfect fit

June 3, 2010

The condo was a perfect fit for me, my girlfriend and my son. Size was just right for us and as soon as we walked in the setup of the condo made us feel right at home. We even spent a full day in the condo because we were so comfortable and relaxed. Amazing view from balcony. My girlfriend did not want to leave this condo. As stated in other reviews, the owner is very helpful with anything before and during the stay. Many thanks to her! Only problem was the mosquitos. As soon as we got out of the car ,in the parking lot underneath the building, we were swarmed. Specially in the elevator up to the floor, but not a problem inside the condo. Other then that little problem everything could not of been any better.

Very Relaxing Stay

May 23, 2010

A wonderful condo for two. Every thing is updated and clean and all essentials are provided. We did little cooking, but the kitchen was fully equipped- even to salt and pepper. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the morning and evenings looking at the Gulf. It was a very pleasant and relaxing experience from our first contact with Valarie. She provide alot of "what to do, where to go" information. This is a go back.

Well maintained

April 26, 2010

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. Was a little smaller than expected, but adequate for the 2 of us. Valerie was super at communicating, getting us info. on the area, and following-up after our trip! And the deposit was returned very soon after we returned home. We, personally, would have appreciated a more comfortable couch (for reading and movies), but that's just us. The condo was very well maintained and clean. As forewarned, there was construction going on in the building, but it didn't really affect us much. The pool looked nice and clean too. Many others will enjoy this place too. Thanks for all your help, Valerie!

Beautiful Condo

March 26, 2010

My boyfriend and I rented the condo for 2 days and it was wonderful! The view was breathtaking and the condo itself was absolutely beautiful, from the amazing kitchen to the awesome shower. Everything was exactly what we expected and more. Valerie was also very great to work with and we are both looking forward to going back again sometime soon!

A perfect Getaway!

March 8, 2010

We looked for a place that would be ideal for a weekend getaway and this is definitly it! We went for a winter weekend and really enjoyed our stay. The location is convenient to everything! The condo was immaculate and the decor is quite charming with a perfect view of the gulf. We loved the ammenities in the condo too - from the decor to the gourmet kitchen to the beautiful oversized bathroom shower - everything is 1st class! Valerie was so accomodating and such a pleasure to rent from. We appreciate her sharing her beautiful beach condo with us and are looking forward to our next stay!

Cannot wait to go back!

February 11, 2010

I was originally thinking of renting a room at the San Luis, I'm glad I didn't! The condo was well worth the price...If anything It's under priced. Valerie was a pleasure to communicate with. The condo is nicely decorated and very clean. I am looking forward to staying again and have recommended it to my brother and a friend. Thank you again Valerie for allowing us to use your home! Even though the weather wasn't very pleasant, our stay was wonderful! You will hear from me again! :)

Loved it!!

CLEAN! Wonderfully decorated and all the comforts of home! away from the 'noise' of the seawall traffic yet still convenient! We loved it and the owners were wonderful to work with! I highly recommend this for your next getaway! I just hope that it's open for our next getaway!

This condo was very nice!! Highly recommend it above any other condo in Galveston. My family has been going to Galveston Island for numerous years and have not found a condo that was this nice for the price. All amenities were updated and you just felt at home. It is very cute and themed appropriate for the location. The owners were very personable, accessible and willing to do what is necessary to make the trip nice. Highly recommend it!!

Annual Sisters' Getaway

June 13, 2008

Our condo was very well furnished and suited our needs to a tee. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It was also very quiet even though it overlooked a busy Seawall Blvd. We were very pleased with our decision to rent this condo. The owners were very very helpful in making sure we had a perfect sisters' getaway. Maravilla is a nice place. However, they do advertise as having 3 pools, but had one padlocked for our entire visit. No construction or repairs were going on at this time either. It would be nice if only one pool was designated for families with children (maybe the biggest or main pool) and leave at least one for adults only as some of us are there to escape bickering and whining of children.



Dallas/Fort Worth, TX

Perfect! Absolutely the Best Place to Stay!

May 27, 2008

The condo was absolutely perfect. Like staying in a high-end hotel. The kitchen was equiped with everything needed to feel right at home. The huge flat screen TV with the built in DVD player made it so easy to plug in Diego, Dora or whatever my daughter was in mood for - to her it was like being in a movie theater!! The view was spectacular. We really enjoyed the balcony. We had a fantastic time and staying in this wonderful condo with everything we needed and more, made it all the more special and relaxing. I didn't want to leave!

Bada Beach was Bada Bing!
Paula Bald Knob, Arkansas
Review Submitted: July 2010
My husband, eleven year old, and I spent a few days at Galeveston and were privileged enough to spend it at Maravilla in Valerie's Bada Beach condo. It was impeccably clean and every single detail had been thought of in advance. Valerie took the time to send us coupons and a "things to do" list via email before we arrived. The condo is away from the busy center of Seawall Blvd, but just minutes away from it all. The view from the balcony was wonderful, and it was hard to leave it on the morning we left to drive home. If you are planning on taking a vacation to Galveston, you can't go wrong with this condo!

A Little Piece of Heaven BadaBeach
Vickie Longview, Texas July 13, 2010
Date of Stay: July 2010
We spent 3 nights at this condo during July 2010 and had an awesome time. The condo was beautifully decorated and extremely clean and well maintained. We took our 6 year old grandson with us and he loved his "clubhouse" bunkbed. We were looking for a relaxing getaway with activities for him to enjoy. He loved jumping waves in the gulf and swimming in the pool at the condo. One of the pools was only 3 feet deep which was perfect for him! On Wednesday we spent 4 hours at the Johnson Space Center which had activities for all ages. My husband and I especially enjoyed the view of the gulf from the condo balcony where we enjoyed our morning coffee and a glass of wine in the evening. The owner, Valerie was very helpful in suggesting sights to see and even provided some coupons for discounts at local attactions. Her recommendations about beaches to visit was especially helpful. All in all we had a wonderful time and look forward to visiting BadaBeach again very soon. Thank you, Valerie for sharing your special getaway with our family!

Even though I spoke with you on the phone about our stay at your condo the past few days, but I just had to email you and let you know just how HAPPY we were with your accommodations.

I have to admit, we were anxious about what condition any of the condos were going to be in due to all the things we had heard about the devastation IKE had caused, but once we entered the condo,all our anxieties vanished.

You have done an extraordinary job at decorating and providing everything a family could hope for in
the condo. Anything we needed was supplied, and even things we weren't expecting were there. It was
SO nice. Everything from the quality of the bed coverings, dishes, and towels, down to the notebook with the television channels was amazing.

You should take so much pride in what type of lodging you are providing to your vacationers, and I just hope that everyone who stays there takes as much care of all the things you provide.

Also, I want to thank you for all the information you provided to us regarding places to visit, eat, and
beaches to go to. I don't think there is any other condo owner who goes to the lengths you do to make sure their guests are taken care of.

Once again, thank you so much for making our vacation a wonderful, relaxing experience.

We will definitely refer any of our friends. You are a 10!

Valerie, we had a great time! Your maid does a great job -- it was so clean! It was just perfect for the two of us. All the beds were so comfortable, and you are right, it does still look new since the renovation.

I didn't want to come home! The weather was perfect -- 85 was the high on Saturday with a nice breeze blowing. I hope you continue to rent it out because I'd love to come back.

Anyway, thank you again!
