About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

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.

About Will and Nancy Landry

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.

Will and Nancy Landry purchased this condo in 2011

Why Will and Nancy Landry chose Gulf Coast

Fun place and lots to do, pet friendly and close to the kids and grandkids.

What makes this condo unique

Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn, Aviation museum, the Beach, Food and Golf. Our pool deck is fabulous!

Lovely property. Local contact very helpful.

  • 4 of 5

The accommodations were very nice. The only issue we had was finding someone in the office to get our pool and parking passes from due to holiday hours. Overall, we had a really good time.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter, puppy and I all stayed here for a long weekend, and we loved it. The condo is really nice with everything you need. You have a beautiful view from your balcony of the ocean and updated living area. The property is also really nice. Many other families with children and pets. The whole experience was great. The only thing I can say, that I'm not sure if the rental site included (it may have) is if you want to watch a movie or have a small child, bring DVDs. I brought some blue rays for my toddler, but that was my fault!

Enjoyable stay!

  • 4 of 5

Great View of gulf and very much appreciated that it was pet freindly. Nice comfortable bed in master. Great for a weeknd getaway for couples with pets and maybe a couple of kids. The unit is on the small side but you probably wouldn't be spending too much time indoors anyway. It was clean and we had no problems.Check in was a breeze.

Great location and view!

  • 5 of 5

We were highly satisfied and enjoyed our stay at this Maravilla condo. It was very clean, seemed very safe and like a well managed building. The parking has increased to $20 which surprised us because we thought it was $15, but you only pay it once so that's ok.The front office lady was nice and provided us with good tourist ideas. Brenda, the local contact, was very nice and helpful and flexible when we had the wrong key when we arrived. The price was great for the location that we had and the views of the gulf. They are very pet friendly here which was nice for our black lab. Workout room/gym is small, but has enough to keep you busy, although I recommend running on the seawall because it is beautiful! Large pool areas were nice, the hot tub was a bit small though. Bring beach towels because the condo only provides bath towels. The condo sleeps six with kid bunks and a pull out couch. We had two adults and a large dog and felt comfortable in the condo. If you are sleeping six, it would be cramped, but do-able if you don't spend much time inside. We loved the furnished kitchen to avoid eating out for every meal. The shower pressure was great and very nice and refreshing! Lots of towels and sheets and a nice large king sized bed. I would definitely stay here again if we choose to visit Galveston in the future.
