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 Galveston

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.

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

This property was perfect! We planned a weekend get away to celebrate our friends 50th birthday. The property was very clean, the beds, which include a sofa bed, were very comfortable. Other than the mosquitos outside, our stay was perfect and would recommend this property.

Very clean and roomy

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from Galveston and loved this place. The unit was very clean and had plenty of space. The pools were nice, especially the large one. Would recommend staying here.

Property was very nice

  • 4 of 5

We took a girls trip about 3 weeks after hurricane Harvey. So I called ahead of time and Christina was very helpful in getting back to me to let me know Galveston had minimal damage and our condo was in great shape. The pool at the property is very nice!! The condo was very spacious and slept 8 women comfortably. Everything was very clean.

Now the negatives to why I only gave this 4 starts-

The elevators at the property were constantly broken down. They would run for an hour and then be out of service so needless to say 8 women and all our stuff going up and down 3 flights of stairs was not an easy task. Also, I never saw anywhere stating to bring trash bags, paper towels, toilet paper, etc. (I may have overlooked this) So we had to make a trip to the store for extras. so this is not really a negative just an FYI for anyone staying here.

Other than these small things our stay was great and would definitely recommend this property to anyone!! We will be back!!

No Mercy

  • 4 of 5

I booked this stay 2 days before the date needed and tried to cancel the next day because of unexpected weather in Galveston 😬 but I still had to pay full $994.50. (that includes a $200.00 deposit) I think I would understand if I had taken the time weeks in advance but it was 1 day and she had NO mercy. I almost went even in the rain but decided to take the loss instead of go deeper.

Owner's Response: We don't cancel for scattered rain showers. It rains all the time in Texas. Oddly enough we had maybe one of 2 stray showers that lasted 2 to 3 minutes.

Comfortable and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This condo was comfortable for the six of us (4 adults, 2 kids). There was plenty of space in the rooms to maneuver, the bathrooms were a nice size, the view from the balcony was pleasant, and the location was just what we were after-- not too close to all the action, but close enough. Accessing the beach across the busy road proved to be a bit tricky since there aren't any crosswalks in the area. (Something the city needs to consider.) We really enjoyed the large pool, and spent a lot of time there with the kids. The main pool area has a smaller pool for younger kids which was a nice feature. Overall, our stay was pleasant and we enjoyed ourselves. The condo is as advertised. Our only concern is the lack of communication with the owner. Not sure if it was through VRBO that was the problem, but whatever the case, hopefully that will improve.

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.
