About this property

SeaShellSmile Resort :-) 3Pools TopFloorOcean/Pool VIEW! Remodel! Leather *CLEAN!

What is a SmileView :-) experience? It’s a journey, beginning with a view, and ending with a smile. We provide the views and you share the smiles ;-) SmileViews finds great views; oceans, beaches, waves, sand, and transports them to your condo. Every corner of your condo brings you closer to the beach. So put on your flip-flops, and let’s stroll together through your SmileView :-) vacation…

Your SmileView condo theme, “SeaShellSmile”, was conceived (2019) on a sandy beach, washed up by salty waves. Conch shells, Star Fish, and Cockle shells inspire your relaxing beach retreat. SeaShell wreaths, and backlit shell wall art carry you to a virtual beach. Custom tile-murals wrap the bath shower and kitchen backsplash in visual panoramas. Listen closely and they almost whisper relaxing ocean sounds. Enough about Seashells, let’s begin your journey…

First stop, Galveston Island and The Maravilla resort. After sailing over the causeway, turn right at the Gulf of Mexico, and there you are, perfectly located between pocket beaches to the west, and rentable umbrellas to the east. Your 3 p.m. arrival is available earlier than many others, 4 p.m. Now, put away the watch, you’re on Island time.

Next stop, escape the sun under covered-parking shade, then let one of three elevators lift you up to the top floor (third) for great ocean views. Condo access is easy, just press your secure computerized door-code, no key required. Next step, ready? I can’t wait to show you one of our newest creations, “SeashellSmile”!! Let’s open the door…

After cool air welcomes you in, custom-towel “critters”, on adult-sized bunks, say to your kids (or adults) “We’ve been waiting for you!! Let’s play together in your pretend clubhouse!!” One mom remembers her kids begging to leave the beach so they could get back to their bunks, haha. Now that’s a SmileView :-) experience!

Warm sunset rays jump through the picture window pulling you out. A flowing stream guides your eyes from the ocean-wave horizon to the palm-tree lined resort grounds. Beautiful. You could stand here forever… until younger eyes discover their pool playground, directly below. Your SeashellSmile view casually sweeps from ocean to sunset before stopping at The Maravilla’s Zero-entry kiddie pool. The largest pool, one of Galveston’s finest, wraps around a palm-tree swim-up Island. Pool #3, ready for winter, remains heated, waiting to steam those cooler days.

Your one-of-a-kind “kitchen-on-a-beach” creation, lays next to a sand-topped ceramic-tile panorama. Really? Who makes these? The SmileView’s owners, Pam & Dave. Soft-close drawers and pantry shelves serve cookware and utensils needed for tonight’s “see food” (pun intended) menu. Food just tastes better here. Right? Especially fresh off the local fishing pier. We don’t promise to provide every necessity; foil, zip-locks, trash-bags, soap etc… but you may find a few surprises worthy of an extra smile :-) Who thinks of all these details? (Dave’s better-half, of course.)

Unwinding is easy. SeaShellSmile sleeps up to 6 guests in three separate areas; a private King bedroom, 2 hallway adult-sized bunkbeds and a leather-sleeper sofa in the living room. This is not a typical hotel room, but your home away from home. The master bedroom provides a convenient dresser and closet behind a full-length mirror. The KING bed hides ample suitcase storage underneath. And best of all, it’s CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN. Rest assured, our professional housekeepers (“critter creators”) work hard to exceed your expectations. Read our guest’s many “clean” reviews. We think you will agree :-)

Wake up to coffee served by Mr. Coffee or Mrs. Keurig (your choice). First-day complimentary hot beverages; waiting for your SmileView experience. Sips of coffee blend ocean views with Great-tailed Grackle bird voices. Huge pelicans overhead look like bombers compared to these little jet fighters. So much to ponder… so little time… because Galveston activities are waiting!!

Before jumping in the car, consider convenient walking destinations. Right next to your resort, the world’s longest (10.3 miles) sidewalk stretches from beach to beach waiting to be conquered by bike or shoe. Or stop at Jimmy’s on the Pier and order breakfast with a view. Kids enjoy the next-door Go-Karts and Fun Center; arcade, virtual-reality, bumper cars, axe throwing, digger machines and ATVs. Walk 8 minutes to hit the batting cages, or sink a hole of Putt-Putt golf.

A short 2 minute ride, dunks you at Galveston’s famous Schlitterbahn water-park or the many attractions of Moody Gardens; Aquarium Pyramid, Rain Forest Pyramid, 4D theater, Reef Rescue VR, Discovery Museum, Paddlewheel Boat or Zip Lines.

After boredom sets in, haha, head to Galveston Island’s famous Historic Pleasure Pier. Pleasure Pier is one of the few spots in the world that has dozens of rides over the water! You'll be flying over guests on the Pier, soaring over the Gulf of Mexico and anticipating your next ride!

After experiencing Island life, SeaShellSmile welcomes you home. However, your SmileView experience is not over yet. After dimming blue-sink lights and highlighting the seashell shower mural, one more question must be answered in the solitude of jet-tub massages: Was this a SmileView day? Such an easy answer. No words needed…. :-)
