We also offer secure Wifi and welcome approved small pets.
We look forward to welcoming more guests.

Here are some of our recent GREAT reviews.

This clean, whimsical unit made me smile!
3/20/2013 This clean, whimsical unit made me smile!
Luckily, Christina, the on-sight manager responded promptly to my last minute inquiry and made a week-long gulf coast holiday possible. I arrived to find this unit bright & cheery, and just as the listing & pictures indicated. Basic starter supplies were provided, so all this tired traveler had to do was unload the vehicle in 1 easy trip using 1 of the complex dollies and the elevator. When I was ready to shop, there was a Super Walmart as well as an upscale Krogers' Grocery store a short drive up the seawall. The condo kitchen was so nicely appointed that I ended up eating out only 2X all week. The Maravilla's location on the more quiet west end of the seawall, was within easy driving distance of the many Galveston attractions, and an approx. 45 minute drive to Houston. But for me, I had all I wanted right there on the island! I relished each morning, putting on the coffee, opening the patio door to breath in the fresh ocean breeze, and smiling as I watched the most beautiful sunrise develop over the ocean. I'll be back...

Fantastic Condo! 3/25/2013
I cannot say enough good things about this condo. The view, location and decor are fantastic. We did not use the pools as they are not heated and it was a little cool. The condo is located at a quieter end of the seawall making traffic light.

Springbreak2013 3/16/2013
We are always a little nervous about booking based just on photos on line. You don’t know if the photos are current or from years ago. What a pleasant surprise, the condo was exactly like the photos. The condo was very clean and well stocked. My husband and I took 4 teenage boys to Galveston for Spring Break, we stayed Monday through Friday and you know how teenaged boys can eat!! The kitchen had everything we needed to cook most of our meals. The beds were very comfortable, the linens were clean and of high quality. The pillows are the same pillows we have at home, not the five dollar pillows from a discount store. Now I would like to mention the décor. Every detail has been thought of and made for a fun and relaxing experience. Every inch of space has been utilized. Christina was great to work with and was right there to help with any questions we had. I cannot say enough about our experience, we got so much for the price. I don’t think I have ever been able to say that!! We will be back!!

                  Close to fun Galveston activities Schlitterbahn, Moody Gardens, numerous beaches to visit and the NEW Pleasure Pier. Visit the historical Strand area or reserve a deep sea fishing trip. Just a few other things to do include miniature golf, bungee jumping, or kayak with Artist Boat. Galveston has so many wonderful restaurants. The island is full of fun all year long. We have numerous special events such as Mardi Gras, Bike Rally's, and Dickens on the Strand make that make our island very unique. A calendar of monthly events can be provided by our property manager.

                  About: The Maravilla is at the end of the Seawall offering a bit of seclusion from the busier parts of Galveston, yet we are moments away from your main attractions. We love the 3 pools, and the view our condo offers was the reason we decided this is a unit we plan to enjoy when we have the time. We are pleased to open it up to guests when we are not avaliable to stay at the resort. We are so blessed to open our condo up to guests. We hope you enjoy our new condo.

                  Why Maravilla:
                  The view is all we needed to know we wanted to enjoy our days and nights in condo 310 at the Maravilla. We also own condo 252 and 231 at the Maravilla. We offer special deals if one party, such as a family reunion rents all condos.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Family complex that welcomes everyone. Owners and guests are always smiling when we visit. We love the fact that we are located so close to everything yet we have what we feel is our own peaceful condo a bit more secluded from the the main island traffic, yet it is on the Seawall. We love looking at the fireworks on a Friday/ Saturday during the summer night since we have a great view of Moody Gardens from our front porch. It is also very nice to be able to sit on the balcony and enjoy seeing the ocean breeze. Open the doors and enjoy the amazing weather any time of the year. The complex is also pet friendly. We do allow for approved pets. Our particular condo is a non-smoking environment as well.
