Overview

About the property

2 king beds, 2 Baths, queen sleeper sofa, bunk beds, 2 full baths, jacuzzi tub

We wanted to let you know that unfortunately the HOA informed us (5/11/2017) that we have an issue with the balcony above us that needs repair. We are not sure when the repair will be completed but at this time guests cannot go out onto the balcony. You can certainly still enjoy the view. We hope you will still consider us for your vacation needs.

Welcome to Making Memories. Condo 256 at the Maravilla Resort.

RELAX in this 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo. This condo is in a new building at the Maravilla and has recently been completed with the latest designer decor.

Enjoy a king size bed in BOTH bedrooms. We offer a washer/ dryer inside the condo. We also have secure Wifi so you can work or surf the internet while enjoying our amazing views.

In the hall, there are 2 bunks. The bottom bunk bed converts to a convenient settee for playing games, eating or reading. The den features a large couch that converts to a queen sleeper. The guest bath includes beautiful tiled shower and granite countertop with undermount sink. The master bath features a jetted tub with a gorgeous tile surround. The sink is a stainless vessel with a unique vessel faucet. Wake up to a view of the Gulf from the oversized master bedroom with entry to the large balcony that spands across the den.

The kitchen has a side window view of a relaxing lagoon to the east and features beautiful granite countertops and convenient cooking supplies including, coffee maker, blender, George Foreman grill and other necessities. Keruig coffee maker and a standard coffee maker as well. Please note to bring any Keruig single cup coffee or brewers (K Cups). Supplies for the Keruig are not in the condo but it is there for your use.

The Maravilla Resort has 3 pools. One of the largest resort pools on the island. The pool seen from our balcony is heated. We have a hot tub, charcoal grills, and some of the most beautiful tropical grounds. Our pools are never overcrowded due to the size of our grounds.

The Maravilla is about 5 minutes from Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn. We have Jimmy's Fishing Pier and restaurant within walking distance.

We are within walking distance of go carts and an arcade center.

We are at the very Western end of the Seawall. far enough from all the hustle and bustle of the island but close enough to be minutes away from all the attractions and wonderful food Galveston has to offer.

About Christina Stevens

We have 2 condos at the Maravilla. As about condo 352- Eat-Sleep-Beach if you are interested in another condo that sleeps 6or a larger family trip.

Christina Stevens purchased this condo in 2014

Why Christina Stevens chose Gulf Coast

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Coming soon the city has plans to expand beach front entrance in front of our resort. More details later in 2015.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our experience was great! First, working with the Galveston Real Estate team exceeded expectations. The were responsive, flexible in our requests and provided very clear rental instructions.



As for the condo, it was phenomenal. This unit was all new inside, very clean and well kept. The best compliment I can pay is that I would certainly recommend this unit and working with Galveston Real Estate to others and would definitely stay here again in the future.





Thank You

Well done!

  • 5 of 5

We have had the opportunity to take our grandchildren to this condo on multiple occasions, and enjoy it more each time we visit. This beautifully decorated two bedroom condo is the perfect getaway for an island adventure. It offers all the comforts of home, and you truly feel that you are their guests, not a client. The view from this condo is wonderful be it overlooking the pool, Sea Wall Blvd. or the sun rising, or setting on the gulf waters. We look forward to each visit and have creatively found answers to the grandkids travel question "are we there yet"? .......we can't get there soon enough!

Everything about our condo was perfect with a full view of the coast.

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we've traveled with both of our grandchildren, one only 5 months. The 2 separate king rooms were such a luxury especially the en suite Master. The rocker recliner was the perfect addition to keep our baby's sleep schedule. For us bigger babies where do I begin.... the WiFi, the jacuzzi tub, the walk in shower, uber comfy beds, super sized sofa, huge closets, washer/dryer & well appointed kitchen and of course the pool on property with the beautiful cabanas and lagoon for small children. We watched cottontails play under the bushes and eat the green grass on the lawn, saw a Nutria fishing in the lake beside the hotel, brown pelicans, and of course thousands of seagulls. First trip in a long time that none of us wanted to leave. Everything we needed was supplied as if I had shopped for myself. We had an issue with the lock (totally my fault) and Christina answered immediately when I called and we had no other issues. True Southern Hospitality!!!

Superior Condo - Awesome Views!

  • 4 of 5

This well maintained, nicely located condo was a wonderful place for a girls’ getaway. We enjoyed everything about it – super comfy beds, a well equipped kitchen as well as beautiful decor throughout. The location within the complex was perfect. It's set back from Seawall Blvd. which eliminated any traffic noise. We appreciated having a balcony with spectacular views of the pool, Gulf and inland water way.

There is much to do in the area, but a car is a must. While our goal was mainly a relaxing week in the sun, we did manage daily walks along the seawall, visits to Jimmy’s on the Pier, Pleasure Pier, Murdoch’s and the beaches. On the days with less than perfect weather we visited the Tangers Outlet Mall and the Strand.

Christina was very responsive to a couple of minor concerns. We definitely would recommend this condo to anyone interested in superior accommodations away from the busy beach area. Thanks Christina for a lovely vacation!

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.
