Christina Stevens, Realtor, Realty Associates

Year Purchased: 2010

About: This property is managed by a local property manager and Realtor, Christina Stevens with Realty Associates. We are a couple who feel in love with Galveston many years ago. We do live out of the area and travel as often as we can to the condo.

Why Galveston, TX, USA:
Having a condo for our pleasure in Galveston, Texas, that we could also use as a vacation rental was a must. We love the island and hope our visitors feel the same. After looking at many properties we feel in love with the Maravilla because the grounds are so wonderful and the view was perfect. The pools are very inviting and the complex is well landscaped. We feel like we can offer our condo to others that will truly enjoy the ocean breeze while staying at our home away from home.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We enjoy relaxing evenings on the patio watching the sun set and just feeling the ocean breeze. It is always nice to cook a lovely dinner and just enjoy the beauty of the ocean. We can also have a lazy day at the pool followed by a lovely dinner out since we are conveniently located by many restaurants. The hot tub is always inviting and warm year around. Our personal guests have enjoyed all the amenities the Maravilla has to offer. A morning swim (weather permitting) or workout is always an option to start the day. We have entertained many friends since our recent purchase and enjoy every free moment we have to do so. We hope others experience the blissful feeling we have while just enjoying a simple life and the beauty of the ocean.
