Maravilla condo description

Kick off your shoes you’ve arrived at Barefoot Paradise at Maravilla, a great 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath condo with large balcony overlooking the resort pool, one of three at the complex, and considered to be the largest on Galveston island with 330,000 gallons of water, palm trees growing out of the island in the middle of the pool, and a swim up “bar” with in-water barstools from which you can enjoy your picnic lunch.
Each of the two bedrooms has a comfortable queen bed. The master bedroom has a sliding door to the balcony, as well as it’s own half-bath and a large closet. There are true twin bunk beds built in to the hallway of the condo, offering extra sleeping space.
The kitchen has everything – really – you could need while on vacation, to call this your home away from home. Nothing has been left out, we want you to relax and come back time and again to Barefoot Paradise.
Even the balcony is cool – with outdoor ceiling fans.
There is a second half-bath accessed through the hallway, and between the two private half-baths, you will find a great tiled tub/shower combo.

All condos are not the same! My Galveston Getaway is very particular about the condos we accept into our rental program, and Barefoot Paradise meets our high standards. The company was founded by a condo owner who could not find anyone else in Galveston to give her guests the service they deserve!

In addition to standard refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, range & microwave - all of which are full sized (some condos offer apartment sized, or only a cooktop, mini-fridge and microwave - worth asking!) we've included many common counter-top appliances as well - coffee pot, toaster oven, blender (IT IS THE BEACH!), etc.

Remember, this is our getaway as well - and we wouldn't do any less for our guests than we do for ourselves, so you'll find the condo to truly be a home-away-from-home. We are lucky to be able to have this - we should share, right?

All cars on property are required to have them. They are $15.00/each and purchased from the office. Owners and management companies have nothing to do with this, we just have to play by the rules we are given.

Can't beat the VALUE! We compare our pricing regularly with local hotels - and there truly is no comparison. Yes, you are giving up daily maid service and maybe room service - but does that really matter on vacation or do you want more space, privacy, and the resort style vacation?

We are required to collect and pay 9% occupancy taxes to the City of Galveston, 6% occupancy taxes to the State of Texas, a $15.00 fee for a damage waiver (since we don't ask for a security deposit) and a cleaning fee. When you contact us we will respond with an all-inclusive rate to you so that there will be no surprises. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and personal checks.
