Description from owner

Although the name of this condo is 'Galveston Tropical Sunrise' - one might think of it as Tequila Sunrise. This spacious one bedroom condo that sleeps five has many special features.

Sliding doors from living room to the balcony where you can watch the moon rising over the Gulf or Lagoon Lake with a glass of wine or drink coffee in the morning as the sunrises (with a round table and seating for 4 and cushioned bench);

Master bedroom with a king sized bed, 32" flat screen TV with DVD and separate entrance to bathroom as well as his and her light fixtures for reading in bed;

Walk-in large travertine shower with a seat and an entrance to the bathroom from the hall or master bedroom;

A brand new fully-equipped sparkling clean kitchen with white self-closing cabinets, new appliances and everything you could possibly need to cook a gourmet meal or warm up leftovers from one of the great Galveston eateries and gaze at water as you cook;

Cozy day bed area with a twin bed and pillows;

Combined living/dining area with bar stools for dining at the counter, a 42" flat screen TV with DVD player (and my eclectic collection of over 20 DVDs) and a queen sleeper sofa;

Rectangular table and 4 chairs in the living area where you can dine, play games or set up your computer while watching the birds in the Lagoon Lake;

Combined living area features white wainscoted walls and a queen sleeper sofa;

The floor and the balcony are finished with 16 inch travertine tiles - brick lay - for ease in cleaning.

Beds: 1 King Bed, 1 Twin Bed, 1 Sofa Bed

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this condo! Very clean & everything is updated! Beautiful view! The owner is amazing to work with. We always stay in one of Marilyn’s condos every time we visit Galveston! I highly recommend this condo!!!

Owner's reply: So sorry for the delay in responding to your top-notch review. I shared your comment with my cleaning staff (same folks for 8 years!) and then forgot to write an online review. We look forward to your next visit. Larry and Marilyn

“Great get away location”

Reviewed 18 Feb 2018

My husband and I spent the weekend here. It was a great place to get away for the weekend. The owners are so sweet and helpful. The room was very clean and spacious. You can see the Galveston beach from the room balcony. We highly recommend this location.

Owner's reply: So glad you enjoyed your stay at our condo. Thanks for saying those nice words about me. We try hard to make sure our guests have a wonderful Galveston visit. We look forward to your return visit - and you will receive the returning guest discount too.

“This was just the place for a relaxing weekend with my Sweetie”

Reviewed 1 May 2017

We only had to bring our clothes and some snacks & drinks to have a very relaxing and much needed time together. The Tropical Sunrise had everything else and was quiet. The weather wasn't the best, but being indoors and able to look out and see the wind blown waves while enjoying playing gin and sipping on a great Malbec was a good way to have time for just the two of us. Location is great for ease to get to all the good restaurants on the Island. Thanks Marilyn.

Owner's reply: So glad you had a relaxing weekend at our condo. Larry and I agree - nothing quite as soothing and relaxing as watching the waves. Sorry about the weather, but...... Actually that just gives you a good excuse to return! AND, remember our returning guests always receive the returning guest discount.

Tropical Sunrise was quite a pleasure. The Owners thought of everything, you literally just need to bring your clothes. The view from the balcony is absolutely spectacular. This place was so relaxing and quiet, we had to pull ourselves away from the balcony, that's where we spent most of our time. We really enjoyed our stay, and we will surely be back. Thank you Marilyn and Larry for sharing your little slice of Heaven with us.

Owner's reply: Thanks so much for your comment. We love this condo, particularly in the early morning when the sun is rising and the pelicans are flying overhead.

We stayed for a month and was able to see so much and still relax by the pool. Most of the time we were the only ones at the pool. We got to Galveston a day early and the condo was empty and Marilyn let us rent it early for a very low fee. Much less than we would have paid for a hotel room. The staff were very polite and did the work without disturbing the guests. The staff was always out making the place . Rent this place you won't regret it.

Owner's reply: Thanks Donna for you nice words. We were glad to be able to rent for you for the extra day. Our motto - "Do what you can to help others out, and they will help you in times of need." And about the 3 pools at Maravilla. One is heated and this past weekend, there were a number of guests enjoying a relaxing soak. Looking forward to your next visit.

“Tropical Sunrise”

Reviewed 4 Nov 2015

Such a fun time was had both in Marvella and Galveston. Not only was Marilyn very nice and helpful but the staff at the condo were very nice and always considerate of the guests. Our area of the condo was very quite and peaceful at all times. I was worried about the laundry facilities but I never had to wait and I felt save enough to leave my laundry and go back when it was done. Cheap also which always helps. It was $1.25 for the washer and $1.00 for the dryer. I never had to put in more than $1.00 in dryer. That is very important when you stay a month and want to take less clothing. Thanks Marilyn and Larry

Owner's reply: It was a pleasure to have you enjoy our condo for a month - we are happy when we are able to share our condo for longer vacations - there is always so much to do in Galveston. We look forward to your next visit. Larry and Marilyn

“Excellent stay”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2015

Very nice condo. Marilyn and Larry have done an awesome job with considering what someone who wants to get away might need. The ceiling fan on the balcony is a great plus - it allows sitting out even on the warmest of days and enjoying the view in comfort in the afternoon. Really nice place; don't have one complaint.

Owner's reply: So glad you have enjoyed your stay. Thanks too for mentioning the ceiling fan - we debated the pros and cons of including it and decided that extra breeze was worth it. We look forward to your return stay. Marilyn

“Tropical Sunrise Stay”

Reviewed 18 Jul 2015

This was the perfect getaway. The condo was very clean and nicely decorated. Our hosts handled all of the upfront business professionally and very graciously. I am telling my friends and family and I highly recommend the condos that are used as vacation rentals and owned by Marilyn Swanson and her husband, Larry.

Owner's reply: Hi Valesca: So glad we had a chance to meet you and your daughter at the condo. And, we could tell you were enjoying the condo (and Galveston) immensely! I'm glad you had a chance to experience the morning sunrise from the balcony - it's exquisite. We look forward to welcoming you back to our condo. Marilyn

“Beautiful condo”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2015

We stayed here over Christmas and couldn't have rented a better place to spend our holiday. The condo is decorated and updated and very nice. The Maravilla complex was clean and we didn't have any problems or issues at all. Enjoyed great food in Galveston, walking the seawall, and the Christmas festivities at Moody Garden. Will be coming back for sure!

Owner's reply: We are delighted that you were able to enjoy Christmas at our condo. We hope you will make it an annual tradition (Remember our returning guests receive at least a 10% discount from posted rates.) By the way, we also treasure our visits to Moody Gardens over the holidays. Marilyn (and Larry)
