What a gorgeous condo! A true home-away-from-home! From the minute we walked in to this beautiful place, we were hooked! From the stained hardwood floors throughout, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, over sized jetted master tub, king sized beds in both bedrooms,3 flat screen TVs, the comfortable rocking chair in the master bedroom (handy if you have a baby), washer and dryer (and more!), you could easily tell special attention was paid to every detail in the finish out of this condo to make it a memorable vacation spot. The photos are great, but the condo is more beautiful in person. The condo was very clean. We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing and watching the ocean waves with a glass of wine on the double balcony off the living room and master bedroom. The location was convenient to anywhere on the island you want to visit, but just the right distance away from the higher traffic areas which made a real difference for us. The sandy beach is a short drive to 61st Street. It was a real pleasure dealing with the Property Manager of this unit. She was very responsive, informative, and answered all our questions which helped to make our stay so enjoyable. We had a great time and will highly recommend the 'Making Memories' Condo to our friends, relatives, and to anyone planning a weekend getaway or vacation on the island. Thank you for making our 1st beach vacation with our toddler a 'special memory'! We can't wait to return!

Year Purchased: 2012
About: We have had many wonderful years enjoying our beach cabins at Crystal Beach but in 2008 Hurricane Ike destroyed them. We decided to try a condo in Galveston to enjoy the many wonderful restaurants and activities there are. We hope you have a wonderful time in Galveston enjoying the great features of the Maravilla and Condo 256!
Why Maravilla: We chose to purchase at the Maravilla condos because of the great location that is minutes from all the great activities in Galveston. The Maravilla has wonderfully landscaped grounds with a nice river running from front to back. The pools are incredible with a large free form pool with a cabana for your convenience. Below our condo there is a third pool which we like since it is a little quieter and very convenient.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: One of the things we like best about the Maravilla is the convenient location to Galveston activities yet directly around the Maravilla it is on the quieter end of the seawall so you can get away from it all if you want to. It is easy to cross the street and walk up and down the seawall and look for dolphins playing and birds soaring overhead. The atmosphere is relaxing and the property has spacious grounds which provide enough room to never feel crowded! Enjoy our balcony which spands both the den and master bedroom and the view includes a panoramic view of the Gulf of Mexico.
