About the property

Heated pool, 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Sleeps 8 with sleeper sofa and bunk beds

REMODEL COMPLETED in March 2014. Great fall and winter rates.

This condo is now a full 2 bedroom, 2 full bath with 2 king beds, queen sleeper sofa and bunk beds. Beautiful stainless steel appliances, washer/ dryer combo and much more

2 beroom/ 2 bath condo has amazing views. ENJOY OUR HEATED POOL. Enjoy the fireworks at Moody gardens on a summer Friday or Saturday night. Your view provides you an expanded look down the Seawall toward facing the east and does not look at the Marriott.

The view in the photos is 100% accurate. New linens and items that all enjoy for their stay have been updated.

The Marvilla is located at the west end of the historical Seawall and is a bit more quiet then some of the hotels and condos with kitchenettes located around 61st street. We are a bit away from the hustle and bustle of the island yet minutes from all the fun.

Enjoy a nice walk down the Seawall and enjoy all our island has to offer. This condo gives you a chance to bring the larger family down for an economical week or weekend of fun versus hotels that do not have the added advantage of cooking in a full kitchen.

About Christina Stevens

I am the owners property manager and have multiple condos I represent at the Maravilla. I am a licensed realtor and have managed vacation rentals and long term rentals for years. I also am a native Galvestioan. Also known as a BOI

Christina Stevens purchased this condo in 2008

Why Christina Stevens chose Gulf Coast

This property features 3 wonderful pools on the grounds and in my opinion has some of the best kept grounds on the island. We do have a heated pool as well for the fall, winter, and early Spring months.

We have covered parking under the complex and the most important things is a family can come down and spend some time together in an affordable atmosphere versus a hotel that does not give you an chance to cook all your meals if you prefer to not eat out your entire trip. This view is really breathtaking as well.

What makes this condo unique

This condo sleeps 8 and will have 2 full baths for Spring 2014. The condo was sold at the end of 2013 so the new owner is excited about remodeling. We look forward to updating the listing with more news about our 2014 changes.

Clean, quiet, and a great location! Definitely a family spot!

  • 4 of 5

We were extremely pleased with the condo. Upon arrival, everything was clean, fresh, and in order. Adequate room for four adults and four children (ages ranging from 4 to 12). Appliances and decor are up to date. The pool areas and grounds are clean and maintained. The staff in the office were friendly and helpful when purchasing the parking pass. My communication with the owner was outstanding prior to our trip as well as during our stay. I highly recommend staying here!

Very Comfy Stay

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here. Clean and comfortable with a great view of the ocean from our big balcony. Very close to Moody Gardens and the Lone Star Flight Museum which was a big plus for us. Also there is a really nice pool and hot tub area. Loved that.

Nice, but...

  • 3 of 5

This place was clean, neat, and well furnished, but there were some downsides. The tiny bathrooms have zero counter space, forcing you to use the toilet lid and the floor for a place to set things. The bedrooms were only slightly larger than the bed making getting around challenging. It would have been better to have queen size beds rather than king size. One bedroom has no window at all and the other has a non-impressive view. The bed with access to daylight had a really cheap and uncomfortable mattress, and the kitchen, although nicely outfitted was not large enough for two people to work at the same time. The place is located on the west end of the Seawall area where the beach is rocky and there are no shops, restaurants, or attractions within walking distance. You do have a limited view of the ocean, but don't overlook that word 'limited'. Bottom line, if you can get this place for $150 per night or less, go for it, but if you have to pay over that you should shop around a little. I know I will next time I stay in Galveston.

Owner's Response: This review is not accurate at all. The location is clear and noted in the listing as well. This condo gets great reviews and had a great reputation. Reallly sad to see a person talk about someone property in this manner. I hope they did enjoy the stay and the island.

Condo was amazing!

  • 4 of 5

What we envisioned, but slightly smaller. Perfect space for 6 people. Wasn't spotless. Pools were a great accommodation for my little one!

Clean & Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Everything was clean and the unit had everything you need to feel at home. The pool area and other common grounds were well kept. Check-in and check-out was simple.

Car: recommended

The Maravilla is centrally located to all you could want to do on our wonderful island, yet it is at the end of our historical Seawall going west away from some of the main traffic. Very close to stores, Moody Gardens and other attractions are only mere minutes away.
