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.

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.


Manager info

Christina Stevens, Realtor, Realty Associates

Year Purchased: 2008

About: 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

Why Galveston, TX, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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.
