“Maravilla Pelican”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2016

Wonderful experience! Owner was very helpful, friendly and responsive. The air conditioner went out the second day we were there and she had a worker there to fix it in about an hour - on a holiday weekend! Beautiful pool and view, wonderful vacation. You have to try the food at the restaurant in the next lot by the kite shop! A+++ experience, mostly due to the owner. Keep up the good work.

Owner's reply: So glad you enjoyed you visit. Sorry again about the AC - but then again we are blessed to have a great HVAC guy who takes great care of us.

“Amazing View!”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2016

The condo exceeded our expectations. It was clean, well maintained, and offered a spectacular view of the pool area and ocean. Really enjoyed watching the bunnies hop through the grounds each evening as we relaxed by the pool! The property is very family friendly by allowing access to the ping pong table, corn hole game, volley ball net, and three poles and sauna. Minutes away from the beach, Pleasure Pier, and great eateries. Booking the condo was hassle free and Marilyn made me feel welcomed from the moment we spoke. She provided us with lots of helpful information about the island! We'll definitely rent the same condo again when we return to Galveston Island.

“Relaxing stay!”

Reviewed 17 Jun 2016

The condo was relaxing and welcoming!! The pool was fun and refreshing and big. We love Galveston and all it has to offer in a vacation will differently go back! I just hope that this condo will be available for us. I was able to meet the owners and they are friendly and helpful!! ❤️ Galveston

Owner's reply: Hi Mary - So glad you enjoyed your stay at our condo and I too hope you will be back. I enjoyed meeting you and sharing "OUR" Galveston with you. Enjoy the rest of your summer.

“Spectacular View”

Reviewed 29 Mar 2016

My family and I loved our short stay at this condo. The view from the patio/deck was gorgeous. So enjoyed sitting out there at night and in the morning having my coffee. The place was so nice and cozy. It had all the amenities needed and made you feel at home. The pools and spa were amazing. We hope to go back soon and have another enjoyable stay. The owners are great to deal with.

Owner's reply: Hi Wendy: So glad you enjoyed your stay at the condo. We agree - the patio view is amazing. We hope next time you can plan to spend more time. And remember our returning guests who book directly with me receive at least a 10% discount from published rates. Marilyn and Larry (hands-on owners)

“Wonderful Weekend!”

Reviewed 10 Mar 2016

The layout of the condominium was very spacious and absolutely perfect for a family of four. Once we put the children to bed, we were able to enjoy a glass of wine with casual conversation and jazz while sitting on the balcony without disturbing the children. The early morning view during breakfast was breathtaking. It was centrally located which enabled of to walk wherever we wanted to go and we avoided the hassle of parking. We had an awesome time and will definitely return with friends and family. The enormous amount of space will definitely accommodate more people and having the half bath is a plus. This was a perfect inexpensive way to enjoy a quick but relaxing getaway.

Owner's reply: So glad you enjoyed the condo and a chance to have a relaxing and romantic time with your hubby. Larry and I agree - watching the moon and the nite stars from the balcony are a wonderful way to end a fun-filled Galveston day. We look forward to your return visit. Do share our condo info with your friends too. Marilyn

“Outstanding!”

Reviewed 23 Nov 2015

While I'm late with my review, I absolutely wanted to share our wonderful experience. The condo exceeded our expections for our stay during the weekend of the Tequila Festival. It literally was a home away from home. Everything and more we needed was available. The unit was not only spacious, but spotless as well. I must admit my favorite space was the balcony where we sat every morning drinking our coffee looking out to the ocean and every evening listening to the waves. Marilyn and Larry are exceptional hosts. We can't wait to return!

Owner's reply: Thanks Dawn - so glad you enjoyed our condo. BTW - I must agree with you about enjoying time on the balcony. I never get tired of the view - whether it is the pelicans overhead or shrimp boats in the Gulf or the magnificent moon rising over the Gulf. We look forward to your next stay. Marilyn

“Review”

Reviewed 6 Oct 2015

We stayed in this condo for a mini vacation with our family. It exceeded our expectations. It is very obvious that the owners Marilyn and Larry pay attention to detail. The condo was very clean, the views were amazing, and there was plenty of extras in the condo to make our stay feel like home. We highly recommend this condo, and plan to return again for a visit!

Owner's reply: So glad you had a relaxing vacation in our condo. And we are glad we had a chance to meet you and the grandchildren - they are special. As a grandmother myself, I so enjoy those times when I can share new experiences with my five grandchildren. BTW -- they love a visit to "Mimi's at the condo!"

“Galveston Tropical Pelican Watch”

Reviewed 26 Aug 2015

The condo was very spacious for our family of four and it had everything we needed to prepare meals. It was nice to find a place in Galveston that allowed us to bring our dog. The Maravilla pool and grounds are very nice and we absolutely enjoyed our view of the pool and beach from our balcony. It was great to see the pelicans flying over throughout our stay. Marilyn and Larry provided detailed information about restaurants and activities on the island. Jimmy's on the Pier was a great spot for lunch by the water. We had a great relaxing trip. Thanks Shelly Zander

Owner's reply: So glad that you enjoyed our condo. We too enjoy Jimmy's on the Pier. Looking forward to your next visit.

“First class condo”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2015

Just spent a week in this beautiful condo. Had everything we needed and we love to cook. We have rented from Marilyn Swanson before and all her units are gorgeous, relaxing and have everything you need for your stay. We used the wonderful pool a lot and also enjoyed the beach. Loved the washer and dryer in the unit. The guys enjoyed the gym and ping pong table too. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. They have an excellent dog area. I always feel comfortable renting from this owner because I know I will not be disappointed. The only bad thing was leaving so I have already reserved for two weeks next year. If this unit does not meet your needs she has more units.

Owner's reply: Thanks Jeanne for your kind words. It has been so nice to become acquainted with you and your family through our Galveston Tropical Condos. So glad the guys enjoyed the Ping Pong Table too. Larry and I had forgotten how much fun a game of ping pong is. And of course being in an air-conditioned area where one can look at the Gulf certainly does help. Looking forward to seeing you next year during your two week visit!

“Best stay”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2015

Some friends and I stayed at this location and we all agreed that it was the best summer ever. We plan on coming back again a few more times. Wonderful view of the ocean and everything you need or want to do is a good distance to walk. I would advise people to stay here.

Owner's reply: So glad you had the "best summer ever" at our Galveston condo. We look forward to your return visit - either at this condo or one of our other 6 condos. And as a returning guest when you stay at one of our Galveston Tropical Condos, you will receive at least 10% off of the posted rates. Enjoy the remainder of your summer - and we hope to see you in the fall.
