About Marilyn Swanson, the owner and property manager

I, Marilyn, purchased 'Tropical Breezes' in 2005 - and no it did not look anything like it does today! Larry and I met in 2006 (at Maravilla) and were married at Maravilla in 2010. We have had an outstanding time redesigning this condo to make it our exquisite haven for relaxation. As personal owners, we take pride in our customer service. We enjoy getting to know our guests.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your visit to Galveston and time at our condo. As many know, we both own and manage our "Tropical Breezes". Since we also love Galveston and cherish the time we are on the Island, we attempt to make the condo the same way we would like our vacation home. We are frequent visitors and so can solve problems before they occur. We look forward to your return visit - and the discount we provide to our returning guests. Marilyn

Perfect for our family of 5!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was great and exactly how described. It really was perfect for our stay in Galveston. My only recommendation would be to rent a condo on a lower floor if you are older or out of shape. The elevator was out the entire time (which was no fault of the owners), but going up and down 3 flights of stairs trying to get the luggage to and from was exhausting. I would still stay here again - was beautiful! Thank you.

Thanksgiving Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent three nights at this wonderful two bedroom condo. The appointments and furnishings are all first class. We getaway several times a year and this was one of the nicest we have rented. The views are spectacular both from the balcany and the master bedroom. The owner is charming and goes out of her way to help and make the stay memorable. We will definitely be back.
