Property description

From the moment you arrive at our lovely condo, “Galveston Tropical Sundancer at Maravilla”, you will be impressed by its charm. The beautiful floors, granite counter-tops and tropical furnishings all say, “Come in, relax and enjoy your vacation.'

The cool colors and a touch of whimsy, make this unit a relaxed atmosphere for you and your family to rent year after year. This is a true ocean front condo (one of only twelve at Maravilla) so you can relax on the 24 foot balcony and enjoy a breathtaking view with the ocean stretching out to the horizon. We provide binoculars for a close-up view of the dolphins jumping or the fishing trawlers.

Watch the sunrise over the ocean every morning, either from the comfort of your king-size master bedroom, from the living room, or the big balcony with comfortable patio furniture (a round table with four chairs for dining, a cushioned bench and even a coffee table) for your beverages of snacks as you relax and watch the waves.


The living/dining/eating area is open so it is easy to visit with family and friends. You’ll enjoy preparing meals, or reheating leftovers from our awesome Galveston restaurants, as you watch the ever changing waves of the Gulf. Or, if you wish, watch the large (50 inches) flat screen TV/DVD compete with cable and a collection of some of my favorite DVDs, currently over 30 from which to choose. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, glasses, including wine glasses and champagne flutes, a microwave, toaster, blender and even a crock pot as well as a variety of spices and condiments for your use.

The master suite awaits you with a king-size bed and a mirrored wall of closets. There is a second flat screen TV with cable so you can watch movies or keep up with the news. Your master suite also features an over sized tiled shower.

The second bedroom has a queen-size bed. We also have a flatscreen in this bedroom. There is a comfy queen sleeper sofa in the living room and a bunk area with two bunk beds.

Maravilla Resort Condominiums include 3 large resort-style pools (one with a swim around island and swim up bar area) surrounded by lush vegetation. In addition to the swimming pools there is a large secluded hot tub and a bubbling waterfall that cascades down to one of the pools which has a sloped entrance so convenient for the young ones. The East pool is heated in the cooler months and has shade in the summer.

In case you want to 'work' or 'surf the web' on your vacation, there is a broadband, high-speed internet connection in our condo, the office and the exercise/weight room with floor to ceiling windows where you can watch the gentle waves of the Gulf as you exercise.

Your vacation paradise is close enough to downtown so you can experience all that Galveston has to offer - elegant restaurants, the historic district, shopping and the cruise ship docks, yet far enough away that you are not in 'tourist heaven'. You are within walking distance to the beach, a fishing pier, miniature golf, a bungee jump, a Starbucks, and some shopping.

Since you are on the near west end of the island, you are also close to Schlitterbahn Water Park, the award-winning Moody Gardens Golf Course, Scholes Airport, the Lone Star Flight museum, Moody Gardens, Galveston Fishing Pier and wonderful places to bird watch.

I look forward to sharing my vacation home with you. Please call or e-mail for more information and to learn more about my favorite places to visit while in Galveston.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I, Larry, purchased this condo in December 2009 after realizing how much fun I had in Galveston at Maravilla with my then fiance, Marilyn. Prior to meeting Marilyn I had visited Galveston several times - having a place of my own was just a distant thought. When I met Marilyn at Maravilla she owned one Maravilla condo - and then she purchased two more while we were dating. It seemed only inevitable that I finally joined the joy of being a full-fledged Maravilla condo owner. Marilyn and I were married in April, 2010 (at Maravilla of course). Managing the condo is a team effort. She's the one you will contact to arrange your stay. AND, when the condo is not booked - we get to enjoy MY condo with the awesome ocean view.

Why the Owner Chose Maravilla:
As a fisherman, I chose this condo because it has a full front ocean view. I enjoy watching the water as well as the fishing trawlers, shrimp boats and the dolphins. This is the perfect condo for people like me who find watching the waves totally mesmerizing.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
While at Maravilla there is easy access to all of downtown Galveston and other island events. We like to relax with a cocktail as the moon rises over the Gulf. In addition there are the three wonderful Galveston pools and the hot tub. I like to think of the ocean as our front door neighbor.
