Maravilla condo description

“Galveston Tropical Getaway - #1” at Maravilla is ready for your Galveston beach holiday. Our one bedroom condo, at the popular ocean front Maravilla Resort Condominium, is located in the new section and decorated in cool relaxing colors with lots of art. Everything is BRAND NEW (with the exception of some artwork and the classic wicker furniture in the bedroom)!

We think of it as our Romantic Galveston Getaway and invite you to visit. This condo, one of our six personally owned and managed Maravilla condos, sleeps five with a queen-sized bed in the bedroom with a mirrored closet wall, a queen sleeper sofa in the living room and a single bed in a hide-away nook. All the floors and the balcony are tiled with 20 inch ceramic tile for a stunning look.

You can walk from the living room to your private balcony overlooking the largest of Maravilla’s three pools with a view of the hot tub and the Galveston Gulf in the distance. The well-designed modern kitchen is fully equipped with granite countertops and stainless appliances. You can eat at the bar or sit at the round table or dine at the small round table on the balcony. The bathroom has a tiled walk-in shower.

We now have good news for our friends and returning guests - 'Galveston Tropical Getaway - 2' is right next door to our original Galveston Tropical Getaway. This condo also sleeps five.

We are also delighted to report that the construction of the new Marriott Hotel next door is complete and with it comes a Starbucks coffee shop as well as a bar and restaurant right next door.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: We, Larry and Marilyn, love the water and time in Galveston. It's a special treat when the grandkids visit and we can ride on the beach in our 1973 Volkswagon Thing. Larry is an avid fisherman and prepares the most delectable meals. Marilyn helps people make sound retirement decisions primarily with Medicare and long term care options.

                          Why the Owner Chose Maravilla:
                          We love Maravilla - the charm and the ambiance. This was the fourth condo we purchased at Maravilla and our first one bedroom condo. We like to think of it as our special getaway condo - and so have furnished it so that it truly is a romantic getaway for us. This condo has the red fluted champagne glasses with hearts. Perfect for relaxing on the balcony and celebrating life.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          'Galveston Tropical Getaway - #2' is right next door to our Getaway, 'Tropical Getaway - #1'. Both condos sleep 5. If you have an extended family - it is perfect. Some of the family can stay in Getaway #2 and others can stay in #1. Privacy yet close enough to visit.
