Maravilla condo description
When you cross the causeway you enter the 'Island Time Zone.' With Galveston before you, everyday stresses evaporate into the tangy salt air and a flight of pelicans carry your cares away. You are just a few miles from the paradise we call Maravilla. Individually owned and decorated condos, beautiful grounds, a hot tub, and three great pools (one heated) all beckon you. Our condo has a great view of Maravilla's ocean-side garden and east-side pool.
Enjoy the sun, sand, and surf, not to mention the wonderful pools. Our comfortable ocean-view condo is right on Seawall Boulevard. Have your morning coffee on the balcony, watch one of Galveston's spectacular sunsets with a cold afternoon beverage; and enjoy the evening ocean breeze as you dine 'alfresco'.
Stay for a few days, a week, or a month. The Maravilla is a great place to vacation, escape colder climates in the winter, or to chill out before or after a cruise. All units are individually owned and decorated; this is not a time-share, hotel, or condo-hotel.
Our condo comfortably sleeps 4. The master bedroom contains a comfortable queen size bed. Bunk beds are in an alcove in the hall. Linens, wash cloths, and towels are provided. Bring your own beach towels to enjoy the great pool and beaches.
The condo was recently refurbished; all tile floors, granite counter tops, etc. There is an LCD-HD television and Blu-ray DVD player in the living room. The master also has a TV and DVD player, so bring your favorite movies! Free Wi-Fi internet access is available in the condo.
The kitchen is full-sized and fully equipped for cooking and serving or you can take advantage of the many fine restaurants in Galveston. Appliances include a coffee maker, toaster, crock pot, griddle, mixer, and blender. Eat at the bar, at the table or, better still, on the balcony.
The Maravilla has a large 5' deep pool, a 3' deep pool, a 'kidney' shaped, heated pool and a hot tub all set in tropical gardens. The complex has three elevators, an exercise room, and covered parking. The complex is on Seawall Boulevard 2.3 miles west of 61st street which places it just out of the crowded center but still within easy walking or driving distance to the many attractions Galveston has to offer. Public beaches are a short drive from the Maravilla.
We rent to families and responsible adults. The ideal match is a couple with two kids, who want an enjoyable vacation at the beach. Please designate one person, 25 or older, in your party to be responsible for all payments and correspondence regarding your reservation and plans. This primary renter must occupy the condo during the entire time of the rental. Prior to confirmation we may require a copy of the primary renter's valid Driver's License and a completed renter's form listing everyone in the group. Maximum occupancy is four people.
Maravilla condos are second homes, not just rental property. We will appreciate your treating it as you would your private 'get-away' and ask that you abide by the Maravilla's rules and the following two stipulations.
No Pets - No smoking - no exceptions due to owner's allergies.
We look forward to sharing our condo with you. Start a great tradition of vacationing at the Maravilla and make 'Porpoise Paradise' your get-away.
Please check our calendar for availability and email us for more information.

Thank you so much for allowing us to share some quality family time at Pelican Paradise. The view was great and the accommodations were even better. The adults as well as the grandkids all had a wonderful time. Thanks!

Owner response: Thank you for staying in our condo. We are so glad your family had a great time.
With all of the news from Boston & West, Texas, my husband and I weren't sure about how our trip to Galveston would be. We couldn't have landed in a better spot. Pelican Paradise was perfect! From the balcony, we had a front-row view of some of the largest waves we had ever seen in the Gulf & our attempt at taking pictures didn't do them justice. The condo was very quiet and had everything anyone would need for a very comfortable stay. We bought fresh fish & shrimp from the fish company next to Joe's Crab Shack & the kitchen had all of the utensils needed. There is a Wal Mart nearby for any food items you'll need. Robert and Sue have a very special place and we can't wait to visit again!

Owner response: Glad you enjoyed your stay in Galveston and the condo. One big plus over a hotel stay is the full kitchen which allows you to take advantage of the wonderful fresh seafood Galveston has to offer. Remember to ask for a discount on your next stay.
Staying in this condo perfected my spring break. The condo had everything that came to my mind. All we needed was food. Great location and excellent view from the balcony. I would recommend Pelican Paridise to all! Thank you for opening up your second home to us. -Chris & Summer

Thank you so very much for sharing your beautiful piece of paradise with us! This was our third time in Galveston and probably the best trip yet! Thank you for taking the time and effort to have anything and everything we could possibly need on hand. Your condo was truly a home away from home for us! We hope to be back in the years to come. God Bless!

About the owner: We are a couple nearing retirement. We have always enjoyed travel and enjoy talking with others about their travel experiences.
Why the Owner Chose Maravilla:
We enjoy spending time by the ocean, walking on the beach with the sound of the surf and the smell of the salt air. We chose this condo at the Maravilla because it is ocean front. It is great to sit on the balcony and enjoy the ocean view.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our condo is ocean front so the biggest benefit is having a large balcony overlooking the ocean. The complex also has a large Resort pool and a tropical garden area that is the best of any resort complex on the Island.
