About Christina Stevens, Realtor, Property Manager

The Maravilla is at the end of the Seawall offering a bit of seclusion from the busier parts of Galveston, yet we are moments away from your main attractions. We love the 3 pools, and the view our condo offers was the reason we decided this is a unit we plan to enjoy when we have the time. We are pleased to open it up to guests when we are not avaliable to stay at the resort. We are so blessed to open our condo up to guests. We hope you enjoy our new condo.

Christina Stevens, Realtor, Property Manager purchased this condo in 2015

Why Christina Stevens, Realtor, Property Manager chose Gulf Coast

The view from this one bedroom is one of the best views at out complex. The king bed is a great feature for this 1/1 as well that many do not have.

What makes this condo unique

Family complex that welcomes everyone. Owners and guests are always smiling when we visit. We love the fact that we are located so close to everything yet we have what we feel is our own peaceful condo a bit more secluded from the the main island traffic, yet it is on the Seawall. We love looking at the fireworks on a Friday/ Saturday during the summer night since we have a great view of Moody Gardens from our front porch. It is also very nice to be able to sit on the balcony and enjoy seeing the ocean breeze. Open the doors and enjoy the amazing weather any time of the year. The complex is also pet friendly. We do allow for approved pets. Our particular condo is a non-smoking environment as well.

This condo has a truly amazing view and the owners have thought of all you need. Galveston offers so many exciting adventures that we cannot begin to list the many reasons why you should consider visiting the island. Please note the pictures in this condo are really what you get. You can even read our reviews and see how happy past travelers have been. The owners own 2 other condos at the Maravilla and are happy to provide a group rate for larger parties that want to all stay at the same resort but have separate condos. All 3 are equally as amazing as this condo.

Wonderful Stay with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for our first anniversary trip. We loved it! It was decorated like a home so didn't have that "hotel" feeling. The bed was amazingly comfortable. The fully equipped full sized appliances in the kitchen was a great thing to have if your cooking. We didn't bring kids, but they would have loved the bunk beds. Parking was easy and the elevator nearby was a blessing. We will be keeping this condo on our list to rent again!

Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

Pros: Clean (except under the furniture, you can tell they don't move furniture much), nice view, comfy bed, nice security guard on property, easy access to everything, covered parking, wifi/cable.

Cons: Shower pressure is not good, paying for parking (which recently increased), advertised price ended up being a lot more per night with all the extra fees, which we knew going in, but when we were initially interested that kind of threw me off.

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this place! There is not a beach across from the property, just the ocean view. You only have to drive a few miles down the seawall to get onto sand though. We really like Galveston.

Great Escape for 25th Wedding Anniversary!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, this was a beautiful suite. Perfect for the wife and myself. The Bed was very comfortable! Location was great. Fantastic view of the ocean. Great breezes all day. Pools and hot tub were awesome. This was a great getaway for us to celebrate our anniversary. Went to stewart Beach and spent the day, water and weather were perfect. We were close to Kemah and went there twice to eat. Also ate in the downtown area of Galveston near the waterfront. Nice downtown area to walk around. Houston was close enough to visit also. Visited the Zoo which was very nice. Our favorite thing to do was to walk across the street and get some food and drink and watch folks fish off the pier at Jimmy's on the Pier. It was great!

Great condo with beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

The beds and pillows were so comfortable! Easy to live in and a great property! We loved seeing the bunnies roaming the property on Easter morning! Good location and easy to get to all "touristy" spots, but we had more fun staying "home". We are already planning our next stay!

Cute and cozy

  • 4 of 5

It was the cutest and coziest little apartment. It was perfect for our family of 4. The kids bed wasn't made. The sheets where folded on the bed and the comforter covered the mattress, so the kids just laid on top of the comforter and used the bed sheets as their blankets. And idk if it was the master mattress or the beach that gave me all these little bed bug bites. You might want to investigate the master mattress. Also the code was so basic to get in, we where so scared that everyone knew the code. The view from the balcony was great. Thank you.

Owner's Response: The code is not basic at all and it is changed with different guests. It was certainly not bed bugs as all mattresses are checked. That is very rude to suggest when it has no merit. The sheets for the bed are provided if you need the bunks. It is noted long before you arrive that if you need to use the bunk sheets you will need to make the bed.

Car: recommended

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.
