Property description

This 2 bedroom, 2 bath vacation condo has a breath-taking view of the Gulf / Ocean. It is located on the 3rd floor and has elevator access but still has 3 steps to climb so it's not wheelchair accessible. It is a luxury condo with state of the art TV's and appliances! You will enjoy the 55' 3D LED TV in the living room and large LED TV in the master bedroom and 2nd bedroom. We have supplied some 3D movies and glasses for your enjoyment. Stainless Steel Kitchen appliances include dishwasher, range, microwave, side by side refrigerator w/ ice/water dispenser, garbage disposal. The kitchen is stocked with dishes, silverware, pots, pans and other utensils including waffle iron, blender, toaster and coffee maker. If you find that we don't have something you feel is really necessary and can be used by our future guests, please call me for approval to purchase and reimbursement! Be sure to plan on grilling by the beautiful tropical pool area. There are 3 pools and a hot tub. One of the pools is heated. The laundry room is located just down the hallway from this condo.

The two bedrooms each have very comfortable king size beds, night stand, closet and big screen TV w/ Blu Ray player. We provide some 3D movies & glasses for your enjoyment, but be sure to bring along or rent your favorite 3D movies.

There is a sectional sofa / sleeper in the living room and a set of bunk beds in the hallway. The sectional sofa in the living room can be set up as 2 twin beds or you can push them together to make another king bed!

Take a walk down the seawall and feel the tropical breezes and stop by the nearby pier and enjoy the coffee bar, restaurants and a fishing hotspot on the Seawall. Our guests are welcomed to enjoy the amenities at the Marriott next door with a restaurant, Starbucks, heated pool and pool bar. A traditional Cinema is located nearby and of course Moody Gardens and Schlitterbauhn are about 5 minutes away. Walmart, Kroger and other shopping are 5 to 10 minutes. The new Pleasure Pier Amusement Park is about 10 to 15 minutes depending on the traffic along the Seawall. There are museums, tours, fishing trips, etc located on the island.

The Resort is located along the Galveston Seawall. There is no beach access in front of the Resort. There are nice beaches nearby in either direction. You can walk or drive 3/4 mile to the west or 2 1/2 mi to the east and find nice beaches.

This is a family resort. While all guests are welcome, the management enforces quiet and appropriate behavior for everyone's safety and enjoyment.

The Resort Pools are closed each Monday until 2pm (except if Monday is a Holiday) for cleaning.

A Surprise Around Every Corner. Galveston Island offers everything in a resort destination – beautiful accommodations, entertainment, shopping and 32 miles of GulfCoast beaches. Galveston ’s festivals, special events and attractions are enjoyable for Islanders and tourists alike. Fun & Sun! Galveston Island is famous for its many attractions. From Moody Gardens to Schlitterbahn to museums to shopping, we've got a vacation you won't soon forget! Galveston Island. Where the Texas Coast Begins. Perhaps Galveston's greatest attraction in recent years has been the advent of cruising. Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity and Princess Cruise Lines have all found a home at the Port of Galveston in recent years. These premier cruise ships will take passengers to various stops in Mexico, the Caribbean and more. Galveston Island Ferry, located on Hwy 87 (Ferry Road), continues to be one of Galveston's most popular attractions. Riders can park and ride the ferry or drive their vehicle aboard the ferry. Ferries run approximately every fifteen to twenty minutes and are free. The Great Storm, a multimedia presentation at the Pier 21 Theater, gives visitors a glimpse of the devastating 1900 Storm through a multi-image documentary experience. The 27-minute story gives actual accounts from diaries and letters of survivors during and after the storm. One of Galveston's most popular attractions is Moody Gardens, One Hope Boulevard. Work or play, this tropical destination is ideal for families and groups alike. Water your imagination and travel the oceans of the world at the Aquarium Pyramid. Step into the Rainforest Pyramid with thousands of tropical plants, exotic fish and birds. Explore the mysteries of science at the Discovery Pyramid, and take a rocking and rolling ride through the universe at the Ridefilm Theater. Get in the middle of the action at the 4D Special FX Theater. See spectacular images leap from the screen of the six-story IMAX 3D Theater and visit beautiful Palm Beach (seasonal). Docked at MoodyGardens , the Colonel, a 750-passenger, 19th-century-style sternwheeler, offers a unique view of the Gardens and an enjoyable cruise. And business or pleasure, the Moody Gardens Hotel offers spectacular views of the entire Island . With its huge array of awesome aquatic adventures, SchlitterbahnGalvestonIsland can be your personal happy place! During the summer season, the park offers amazing rides and attractions, including a large wave pool, uphill water coasters, thrilling speed slides, kid's water playgrounds, whitewater rapids, relaxing hot tubs, family raft rides, the Boogie Bahn surf ride and the exclusive Transportainment river system. Relax in steaming warm waters and enjoy summer fun all year long at Texas' first and only heated, indoor waterpark. (Both the air and water are always in the 80s!) The Wasserfest Heated Indoor Season, October through mid-April, features more than a dozen heated attractions in a tropical, heated indoor oasis. Our newest attraction? The Galveston Island Historic Pleasue Pier! Landry's envisions the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier becoming a preferred family destination with the same greatness as Chicago's Navy Pier, Santa Monica Pier and Coney Island's Luna Park. There is a first-class, nostalgically themed amusement park, reminiscent of another historic landmark, Galveston's Electric Park. Traditional rides include a 36-foot diameter, double-decker carousel and a 100-foot tall Ferris Wheel, and for the more adventurous, a steel roller coaster with a 100-foot vertical climb, 200-foot tall swing recognized as the highest ride in Texas and classic bumper cars for adults and children. Amusements as well as the restoration of the historical element of the Pier are anticipated to bring back memories of what the destination was known for in the late 1940s. The Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig and Museum, located at Pier 19, gives visitors an opportunity to step aboard an offshore rig and experience how oil and gas is produced offshore. Videos, interactive displays and models take patrons to offshore locations all over the world. Seawolf Park, Pelican Island via Seawolf Parkway (51st Street), was built on an immigration station site and offers a three-story pavilion with a view of Galveston harbor, picnic sites, a playground area and a lighted fishing pier. A World War II submarine (the USS Cavalla), a destroyer escort (the USS Stewart), and other military hardware are open for tours. Of course, no visit to Galveston is complete without a savoring the Island's historic homes and museums, which give visitors a glimpse of an era featuring both wealth and prosperity, as well as disaster and change.

Year Purchased: 2013

About: 1982 Graduate of LSU, B.S. Mechanical Engineering. Live in the Houston area since 1989. I manage my own properties and offer to you our luxury condos in Galveston. Our condos are new, clean and furnished to help make your vacation to Galveston the best possible. I enjoy helping people enjoy their vacations. For many, their vacation to Galveston in our condos may be something they have been waiting for months and this may be the only vacation they take all year or for years. We want our guests vacations to be worry free and for them to have the perfect accommodations.

Why Private Homes:
The Maravilla is truly a beautiful family resort and arguably the best Resort in Galveston for families to get together. It isn't a high rise resort but instead spread out over a larger area to give a more family friendly feeling. We often have families renting multiple condos from us for family reunions and the feedback we get about the resort is always outstanding and they all want to come back to the Marvilla! This condo has a great view of the Gulf of Mexico on the 3rd floor of the 4 story resort. Like all of my other condos, it has recently been gutted and completely rebuilt on the interior. This condo is new July 2013. I purchased and had the interior built out to our specs. It has all of the best features: Top floor, designer appliances, desinger showers, king bed in Master & 2nd bedroom, 3D TV, free inernet TV, free WiFi. All of our condos are beautiful and built to perfection and are a great value for your family vacation! The Resort is also perfect! There are 3 pools, a hot tub, BBQ grills, volleyball, game room, some excercise equipment. The resort is very well maintained and is constantly undergoing improvements and upgrades.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
First Class customer service from the owner himself. We contract housekeeping and have taken a lot of time to get to know and train our contractor. We know our guests expect our condos to be clean and everything in order. Our guests will find that we have made the extra expense and effort to provide upgraded items in our condos such as: 3D TV's, large LED TV's in each bedroom, bedding, linens, furniture and even our kitchen utensils pots, pans, silverware are very nice items you would find at a fine home. We want every aspect to be extraordinary! We hope you choose our condos for your perfect vacation and look forward to having you back although many of our guests tell me they don't want to leave!
