About George Taylor

George & Jean Taylor are in the Insurance Business and George is a Texas Licensed Real Estate Broker. We own several Condos and manage 23 Condos in Port Arthur, Texas for long term rental.

George Taylor purchased this condo in 2014

Why George Taylor chose Gulf Coast

Jean and I chose this property after loosing our Beach Cabin at Crystal Beach following Hurricane Ike. We are coming to enjoy Galveston more and more with the many small gourmet restaurants, the Strand Shops, entertainment at the 1894 Opera House, museums, Moody Gardens and more.....So much more to offer than Crystal Beach!!!

What makes this condo unique

THIRD FLOOR location eliminated noise from units above you from walking and moving chairs. The noise caused to lower units from furniture movement on Ceramic or Wood floors is a common complaint for those who rent on other than the third floor. This unit is located over the main swimming pool, and has a spectacular view of the Gulf of Mexico. Comfortable NEW King Beds in both the Master and Guests Bedrooms. Unit equipped with Bose ipad docking station, WiFi, DVD player in Living Room and Master Bedroom, with FREE Netflix in the Living room. Stunningly decorated, you feel that you are in a New York Penthouse!

Beautifully decorated and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Maravilla complex and sure wished we had booked George Taylor's "red wall" condo the first go around. He provided details to the condo and was accessible by phone or text immediately. This unit was spacious and beautifully decorated, not to mention close to the elevator. The home décor made me feel like I was at home and the view from the balcony overlooking the large pool was fantastic. The large king size beds were awesome. I highly recommend this unit for your family. Thank you to George and Jean Taylor.

Beautiful, clean condo!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our three nights there. We had plenty of room for my husband and I and a group of teenage boys. The place is very well appointed and has a well outfitted kitchen. It was spotless. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Owner's Response: Lee Ann: Thanks for the kind review. I love hearing travelers comment about our clean unit and you said "Spotless". Our maid staff just earned a bonus, because when we get unsolicited comments about how clean the unit is, we pay them a bonus to reward them for paying special attention to our unit. George

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed out stay at the Marabela Resort. Our condo was clean and spacious and the beds were so comfortable. It was everything George Taylor promised it to be. It was so nice sitting out on the balcony in the mornings drinking coffee and relaxing and looking out towards the gulf. It was so nice having a full kitchen too so we didn't have to rush out in the mornings to get an expensive breakfast.

I highly recommend staying here if you get a chance. You won't be disappointed! Mr. Taylor was very responsive with any concerns we had especially the day the power went out. I contacted him and he checked it out right away to find out what was wrong and got right back to me. Turns out it was the whole electrical grid covering several blocks that went down but he was on top of it and checked in with us several times until we were sure the power was back on. That's great customer service. If we are ever in Gavelston again, we will surely try to stay here again.
