Property description

Recently remodeled one-bedroom condo. We have one of the best views in the complex. The condo is located in the first stack behind the direct oceanfront units. An unobstructed view of the ocean from the second floor provides a beautiful view of the sunrise. Enjoy a shaded balcony on the hot afternoons.
The master bedroom has a king-size bed and a 22-inch wall- mounted LED TV, with all new furniture and bedding.
Newly remodeled bathroom with new shower enclosure.
The kitchen equipped with full-size appliances, dishes, pots and pans, coffeemaker, blender, and toaster, etc.
Linens, washcloths, and towels are provided. Bring your own beach towels to enjoy the great pools and beaches.
As you enter from the front door, there are two new bunk beds located off the hallway for the kids. The living area has a new queen sofa-sleeper and a 42-inch plasma TV with attached DVD player that will also play CDs and MP3s through the TV.

The resort itself has wonderful amenities. There are three pools, a large 5-foot deep pool on the west side of the complex with an island. There are benches in the pool for mingling. There is also a smaller three-foot deep pool that can be used by the children. The west side common area is full of palms, plants, grills for charcoaling, a hot tub and restrooms. A wonderful place to work on your suntan. A smaller and more secluded pool is located on the east side of the resort. Grills, restrooms, and an outside shower are available here as well.

An excellent pier for fishing is within walking distance just east of the Maravilla. For those who want to lay on the beach, the most convenient outing is to pack a picnic and drive your car to the beach and then drive on the beach at Sunny Beach just 1.7 miles west of the Maravilla. A tailgate party at the beach!

Year Round Availability - Perfect for Wintering in Texas.

We rent only to families and responsible adults at least 23 years of age. Maximum occupancy is six people.

The Maravilla condo is our second home, not just rental property. We would appreciate your treating it as you would your private get-away. Please abide by the Maravilla's rules, and have a great time during your stay!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Recently retired from Continental Airlines, my wife and I wanted a resort location to spend time with our children throughout the year. With us living in Florida now, this condo gives us a place to stay when we visit the kids and grandkids who live in the Houston area. With all of us having small dogs, the Maravilla condo was an ideal resort for us.

Why the Owner Chose Maravilla:
Fun place and lots to do, pet friendly and close to the kids and grandkids.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn, Aviation museum, the Beach, Food and Golf. Our pool deck is fabulous!
