Reviews for this vacation condo rental in Galveston, Texas
Tropical Sundancer was just the retreat we needed!
November 22, 2015
My husband and I had a wonderful 2 night stay at the Maravilla Tropical Sundancer condo right across the street from the Gulf. This was our first time ever that we opted not to stay in a hotel because we wanted to bring our dog with us, and this condo was an excellent choice. Marilyn was super easy to work with when making arrangements, and she graciously accommodated our request for an early check-in. She is such a nice person and obviously cares a lot about making sure her guests are comfortable and happy. Even got to meet her on our last day, as she & her hubby were staying in one of their other condos at the same time. Our dog thoroughly enjoyed hanging out all day on the huge balcony surveying the gorgeous view. So did we, of course! The condo is delightfully decorated and very clean, and is stocked with just about everything you could need. Our only complaints were that the dog area had a lot of stickers that kept getting stuck in our dog's paws, and it was obvious that some people did not "clean up" after their dogs, which is against the rules, and certainly no reflection on Marilyn & Larry. Also it appears that the building itself seems fairly "weathered" (which is understandable) and could use some sprucing up on the outside, but the inside of the condo itself made us forget about that first impression of the building from the outside. The grounds are nicely landscaped, well kept and very beautiful. It's also really nice to have covered parking. Can't say enough positive things about Marilyn! Next time we return to Galveston I'm certain we will rent another one her condos at Maravilla. Thanks again for a great experience!
So glad you had a wonderful time at the condo. And thanks for your nice words about me. I'm glad we had a chance to meet - it is always special for us to meet our guests in person. Thanks too for the info about the stickers in the dog walking area. I shared your complaint with our office staff and the very next day, they had one of the maintenance crews working on the stickers. We also discussed ways to better monitor "non-respectful" pet owners. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice condo, good location, beautiful swimming pools we were enjoys our week (too short !!!) . Hope elevator n#1 will be fixed for our next trip ? Nice to know you Marilyn, I'll call you again soon. thank you to help us take care of my 101th yo mother.

In addition to everything you need for a really nice retreat, there was the view of the ocean along with the pool from the balcony. This pet-friendly place was just what we needed to get away and relax and only a few minutes to the public beaches or just a stroll to seawall.
So glad that you enjoyed your time in Galveston at our Galveston Tropical Breezes. We look forward to your next visit. You might enjoy trying out Galveston Tropical Pelican Watch next time - similar floor plan and the same great balcony views, but Pelican Watch has a washer-dryer in the unit. And remember our returning guests receive at least a 10% discount from published prices.
Thanks for Making Memories at Maravilla

Thank you for your beautiful condo. We brought my Mother who is 83 and ha some dementia to Galveston. It was the first time in many many years she had been there. The condo was perfect as it provided a room and bath of her own and no worries for us about her waking up in a hotel room not know where she was. she loved everything about it as did we. We watched Andy Griffith, sat on the balcony watching the waves, gulls, pelicans, and people. Enjoyed Moody Gardens while we were there and great seafood. Played dominoes Saturday night when my brother-in-law came in from Houston for a visit. We will be back for a couple weekend in the future but also hope to bring Mom back again. So many things to do and this is the perfect place to base ourselves. Thank you again!
We are so glad that you, and especially mom, enjoyed the condo and Galveston. We were able to take my mom (now deceased) for a last trip to the ocean when she was 85. I still have special memories of that last vacation. OOPS - I don't mean to say that that was your mom's last trip to Galveston, in fact I hope there will be many more and she will have more time to watch the waves, gulls, pelicans and people. Thanks too for mentioning the dominos. We keep a variety of games in our condos.
Post Prom weekend
April 30, 2015
This was a post prom getaway for my daughter and her friends after their prom Friday night. The condo is very roomy, and cozy. Beautiful set up and loved having the ocean room view in the master as well. Marilyn provides everything you need. Condo is very clean and maintained. We had plenty of room for all 7 of us. I have to say we all had a blast. The weather was great...a little cloudy Sunday afternoon, but overall it was great. Very Sunny Saturday after the storm that hit Houston and then Galveston. We arrived to beautiful weather and straight to the pool to relax. My sister was already there and we joined them at the pool. They too loved it. We had so much fun just doing nothing!! It was the most relaxing weekend for us. Our daughter and her 4 friends... were out and about the whole time doing their thing in Galveston..and my husband and I were doing our thing...mosting relaxing on the balcony enjoying our coffee in the morning or wine in evening watching the ocean waves, or by the pool,hot tub and the patio area by the rock water falls. When the girls were at the condo, they loved hanging out at the pools and hot tub and watching movies in the evening provided by the host. We also loved it! My sister happend to rent the condo next door to us so it was perfect. We got to hang out with them our whole stay. They loved it as well. My husband didn't want to leave and told me that we have to come back and stay for a week which we definitely will. We have found our home away from home in Galveston. Oh...and he also loved the shower!!!! Also thank you Marilyn for letting us know about the maintenance going on before our arrival. It wasn't a problem at all. Thanks Again, Sandra
We are delighted that you enjoyed your visit at our condo. It does sound like you all had a blast. Thanks too for the nice words about the DVDs. We try to provide about 20 in each of our 7 condos and rotate them so our returning guests have a chance to relax with new movies. We DEFINITELY look forward to your return visit to one of our seven condos - and remember that our returning guests receive at least a 10% discount from published rates.

Very comfortable, nicely decorated. A few plumbing issues, but nothing critical (and the owner was at the condo working on the problems when we checked in, and made sure we were comfortable and aware of the problems). Plenty of entertainment options in the condo (December in Galveston can be too cold for outdoor activities!) This was a last-minute rental and the owners were very efficient and friendly. We hope to return next year.
We are so glad that you were able to enjoy our condo. Thanks for your understanding about the plumbing issues. Larry and I try very hard to be "hands-on" owners and fix things as soon as we are aware of them. We look forward to your next visit - and remember that our returning guests receive at least a 10% discount from published rates.
A little piece of paradise :)

If you are looking for a gorgeous ocean front condo, this place is for you! Our stay at the Tropical Sundancer was amazing. The condo was spacious and clean. The beautiful kitchen had everything we could possibly need! Marilyn definitely thought of everything!! She even came by to check on us. The view on the enormous balcony was breath taking. I spent many mornings out there drinking coffee and taking in the view. Aside from the amazing condo, the Maravilla grounds were beautiful. It had 3 pools and a hot tub! There was plenty of space to swim. There was even a spot to have a barbecue. Marilyn was so easy to book with. It was completely hassle free and she was extremely helpful. I will absolutely be returning :)
We are so delighted that we had a chance to meet and you had a great Galveston experience. We look forward to your visit next year for the Dance Competition and hope you will be able to encourage even more of your friends to stay at one of our seven condos at Maravilla. AND, of course you will receive the 10% discount as a returning guest.

Everything we had hoped it would be. Clean, neat, all needed extras in the kitchen for cooking... but was mostly thankful to be able to be in touch with Marilyn who was happy to help with our little questions/requests. Thanks for having us!

Beautiful Views from Tropical Sundancer
February 14, 2013
We so enjoyed our stay at the Tropical Sundancer. The condo has everything you need for cooking a meal of all the wonderful seafood Galveston has to offer and a large balcony with table and chairs to enjoy the meal while watching the waves roll into the shore. Marilyn and Larry accomodated our need for a flexible arrival time, which we really appreciated since we were driving down from Minnesota and never know what type of road conditions we may encounter up north in the winter months. The bulding itself is very nicely maintained. The grounds are beautiful and the covered parking is very convenient. The weather was beautiful and we enjoyed our stay very much. This was our 2nd year in Galveston, at the Maravilla, and we are already checking dates for next year to come back to the "Tropical Sundancer".
We were delighted to have you stay at our condo, Tropical Sundancer. I remember when we chatted on the phone that you definitely wanted to stay at one of the 12 Maravilla ocean front condos - Larry and I are pleased that you stayed with us and look forward to your next visit. As mentioned before our returning guests always receive at least a 10% discount from published rates. Have a wonderful Minnesota spring, summer and fall and think GALVESTON for next winter.

Loved our stay in paradise

Marilyn was such a pleasure dealing with. She was very sweet and open to answer any questions we had. This condo was perfect for my family of four and really made our vacation a comfortable memorable stay. I especially loved enjoying my glass of wine while reading a book in the comfort of a king size bed with the balcony door open listening to the roaring waves of the ocean. I wanted to stay like that forever. The hot tub was also a nice relaxing luxury in the evenings. My youngest slept on the top bunk of the bunk beds in the hall. She thought that was so neat. My oldest found her own retreat in the 2nd bedroom. The layout was nice and everything we needed the condo was equipped with. It was in the perfect location away from all the hustle and bustle yet close enough too! We ate at some wonderful places nearby and especially loved Salsas. The Rainforest cafe was mediocre and I think we'll eat dessert only next time so we still get the experience. The moody Gardens was only a hop, skip and a jump Away and was fun for us all. I'm a woman who loves to shop and really enjoyed the strand area. We got suckered in to a dolphin excursion that we paid to see dolphins and didn't see one. My children had to wait out a 45 minute historical boat ride that ended in tears. However, we did learn about the bolivar ferry that we could ride for free and see lots of dolphins. We had a blast on that. We decided to walk on it rather than drive and didn't have to wait at all. My girls loved our adventures but also loved coming back to the condo to unwind and watch the waves or the tv. There was construction going on but with the location of our condo and the times that they were allowed to work we never heard a thing. When we got back I passed along the information of this condo to two other friends that will be staying here over the summer and we will be returning to stay here again. This location and the ambiance can't be beat! If anybody stays here and happens to find a white jewelry boy full of keepsake cross necklaces my daughter got from her baptism we would love to work out something to get those back:( Anyways, you will love your stay here all the way from the beginning to the end! I was sad to leave. The Van Stavern Family

pet friendly stay
August 1, 2011
the owner, Marilyn Swanson, made our stay a personal one. Everything worked and was very clean. It appears to have been recently redone and looked great.We have two greyhounds and they made themselves at home with no problems. The only shortcoming we could find was, we were not directly on the beach but we knew this starting out, however, we found a great beach about a mile down the highway where you could actually drive onto the sand and park where you wanted without crowds. Loved it as did our grand daughter. This was here high school graduation gift from northern Illinois where the beaches and salt water is scarce.

Wonderful Holiday Retreat
June 1, 2011
We enjoyed the view of the ocean and amenities at the Maravilla. Sitting on the balcony in the mornings with our cup of coffee was so nice and the building was quiet and tenants friendly. The pet friendly condo made our family weekend even more enjoyable. The owners provided many little things that made for a comfortable stay. Thanks!
