Reviews for this vacation condo rental in Galveston, Texas
September 4, 2015
First and foremost, the owners of this condo are first-rate! The condo has a spectacular view and is really close to all of the attractions and beach. Very clean, recent updates, pet friendly, all amenities plus a lot more, much more than we expected. A lot of planning went into accomodating guests ranging from children to adults. If you forget to pack something, no worries, Marilyn most likely has it there for you :) We are looking forward to our next stay and know exactly where we are staying! Thank you for sharing your condo with us!
Thanks Kim for you kind words about our condo. As you know we are very much hands-on owners and like to have "well-equipped" condos so we can enjoy them too. We look forward to your next visit to one of our seven condos - and of course you will receive at least a 10% discount from published prices. We love our returning guests!

My family was visiting my dad for his 80th birthday and we thought we would make a mini vacation out of it as well. We could not have enjoyed ourselves more! The condo was absolutely perfect and we especially enjoyed the huge deck overlooking the pool. This was exactly what we were looking for and Marilyn was a delight to work with! We'll be back!
Perfect weekend get away
May 11, 2015
As this was our first condo rental we really didn't know what to expect, however; once we arrived we were very pleased. The whole condo was clean and comfortable (great AC) Marilyn was so easy to work with on this rental and it was truly what the advertising said it was. We honestly had not one issue with the condo or the entire grounds. Thanks Marilyn for providing us a great weekend get away for Mother's Day ;). We will be back.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed the condo experience. When we travel, we prefer a condo to a hotel - so much more flexibility and it is wonderful being able to prepare a meal "at home". We look forward to your next visit at one of the seven condos in our Galveston Tropical Condos family,

Stayed at this condo for 2 nights prior to cruise. Met up with friends from the Austin area. After viewing hotels in the area, it was a much better value than the two of us booking 2 seperate hotel rooms. This also allowed us to spend some relaxed time visiting without being in a hotel type environment. The patio was fantastically large and plenty of space to enjoy being outside without feeling crowded. The condo was very clean. Towels, shampoo, hairdryer everything you needed was there. Pool area was very nice, unfortunately the weather did not allow us to take advantage of that as it was rainy and not a very sunny day. But that said, the condo was plenty roomy enough that we thourghly enjoyed the visit. This would not have been the case had we stayed in a hotel. Covered parking was also a PLUS since we arrived in a downpour. Wish we could have stayed longer and will difinately be seeking this out if we return to the Galveston area again. Would highly recommend this. In addition, Marilyn made making the reservations effortless.
We are delighted that you enjoyed our condo - so many guests have mentioned the large balcony with the lounge chairs, table and chairs and plants. So sorry that the weather did not cooperate but we hope to welcome you again - I'll do my best to order sunny weather.
Larry and Marilyn (owners and managers)
PS - I'll also tell our superb cleaning staff that they did a wonderful job - as always.

Love this property. Have stayed at a few of Marilyn's property. If you find anyone more pleasant to rent from, then please let me know. You get everything you expect and then some. Never was a Condo type person, I like my privacy. This place gives you that!!! Quiet, you can't hear the neighbors the people at the pool or outside. Everyone is friendly and leaves you alone. If your in doubt don't Jump on it!!!

The unit was elegantly decorated and very clean. The patio that overlooked the main pool was spacious and very inviting. (I could have slept very comfortably out there.) All the appliances were top notch and worked perfectly. The swimming pools were wonderful and the property grounds kept clean. Being pet friendly was the added bonus to our stay. It was comforting to see the on site security guard when I took the dog out late at night. The only thing that surprised me was that the unit was not furnished with trash bags, liquid dish soap, or extra toilet paper. I was also irritated that the master bedroom's TV remote didn't have any batteries. I certainly hope that these things were a simple oversight and that all guests are not required to bring such necessities. Another minor inconvenience was that the internet was not available due to a billing issue. Despite the few inconveniences, overall we had a pleasant stay. I would definitely recommend this rental to family and friends and hope to have the opportunity to rent again from Marilyn.
Thanks so very much Mary for your thoughtful comments. We pride ourselves in providing coffee, sugar, extra toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, hand dish soap and dishwasher soap as well as shampoo, conditioner and body wash for our guests. However, sometimes there can be a problem. I am sharing your comment with our cleaning staff. As to the battery in the remote not working - I did not know. So thanks. We supply back-up smoke alarm batteries - I'll now add remote batteries too.
Great Galveston Find!!

What a great condo! I'm a "details" person and I must say, your condo met and exceeded my expectations. I'll definitely recommend your place & I'll be back. You've payed attention to everything...down to the coffee pot having a filter & ready for my morning java fix. The condo was comfortable. It was very clean, had plenty of local information, had a great location (quiet end of the seawall), great views, awesome pools..we couldn't of asked for much more. My teenagers equally enjoyed it. Thanks for nice relaxing stay!
So glad you enjoyed our condo and your special time in Galveston. Our grandson will be visiting next week and is already talking about the great big pool with the ISLAND. We look forward to your next visit - and remember as a returning guest you will receive at least a 10% discount from published rates. AND, the discount will count in any of our 6 condos at Maravilla.
Wonderful Christmas present!

We loved this condo and looking forward to staying here again! It was very tastefully decorated and had everything we needed. The huge balcony was our favorite part! Such a beautiful view and great to just relax and hang out there, especially with our dog who came along! The owners were very gracious, easy to rent from, and we loved the location. They even had a little Christmas tree up for us. :) Felt just like home!
"Dicken's On The Strand "Getaway
December 11, 2013
We had a great time and the condo was very nice. I love the big balcony but didn't get to spend much time there because of the weather. It started out being cloudy and foggy then it turned rainy, windy, and very cold. We spent a lot of time in the condo because of the weather. We lived in Galveston for 16 years and always enjoy going back. Over all we had a great time cooking and inviting old friends over and celebrating my husband's 75th birthday. The kitchen had everything I needed.. We enjoyed "Dicken's on the Strand" and we even had our picture taken on the deck for our Christmas Cards. And last but not least the owner of the condo went out of her way to make our stay there enjoyable. Sue Beaton.
So glad you had a wonderful time at our condo. We too like Dickens on the Strand. I'm glad you were able to get your Christmas picture taken. I hope we get to see your photo. And most important, how wonderful to celebrate your husband's 75 birthday - next time we will attempt to arrange slightly better weather. Although I must admit, whenever Larry and I can get to Galveston we are there - no matter what the weather forecast predicts! Marilyn

Girl's Weekend Away
August 5, 2013
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on our girl's weekend! Mrs. Marilyn was very helpful throughout the entire process. When we arrived to the condo, the view was amazing! The balcony is very spacious and in the best location. We were able to have a beautiful brunch and just relax on the balcony. The condo is fully equipped with everything you could think of that is needed to cook! The rooms are spacious and cozy! Would stay there again in a heartbeat! Thanks for everything Mrs. Marilyn.

Very tastefully decorated and comfortable! Awesome spa like bathroom and kitchen with all a gourmet cook could ask for! The grounds and pools are beautiful! Great location!
We were delighted that you could visit our condo - and also pleased we had a chance to meet albeit briefly. Glad you could enjoy the :gourmet" kitchen - you can tell Larry and I like to cook and utilize that great Gulf Coast Seafood in our own space. Looking forward to your next visit. Marilyn

We thoroughly enjoyed the condo with the furnishings, movies, books, and proximity to the ocean. Many great restaurants a short drive away, including the Cajun Greek, the Spot, etc. There are nice beaches just north of the Sea Wall, starting about a half mile west of the condo. Lots of historical things to see near the cruise pier in Galveston.
June 6, 2011
The Condo Was Great And Had Ample Room For The Family. My Grandson Loved The Pools More Than The Ocean! He Didn't Like The Sea Weed At All. The Balcony Was Huge And Very Inviting. We All Has A Great Time And Would Do It Again. Thanks
