About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6, Washer/ Dryer, Wifi, Tasteful Decor, Gulf Views

Please note we are having an issue with the balcony so unfortunately until further notice we cannot have anyone on the balcony. We hope this is resolved very quickly. This notice was sent to us by the HOA on 5/11/2017.

Be sure to look at our new 3D video that gives you a tour of your rental before you even arrive.

This one bedroom, one bath condo at the Maravilla was designed as the owners future retirement home. She is renting it out in hopes that it could be used as a retreat for travelers to come and enjoy our wonderful island.

Recently remodeled. The decor in this beautiful condo was designed to make you feel like you truly are part of the ocean. The colors of the condo compliment the island and owners excellent taste. All was carefully selected so that the traveler can truly enjoy what the owner has created for her enjoyment. A spa like quality has also been considered when designing the accommodations.

We sleep 6 with a queen bed in the master, a queen sleeper sofa, and 2 bunk beds. We do prefer to not to have 6 adults as we do not feel we are set up to accommodate 6 adults. Special exceptions can be made if an explanation is sent to the property manager when booking. We hope many families and couples can enjoy this condo.

The condo features granite counter tops, gorgeous accents in the kitchen, a beautiful tiled shower, and much more.

Our kitchen is set up to fully serve all your cooking needs. Warm up a quick bit to eat or cook a wonderful meal versus going out to eat. We love that we can offer the savings of having either a quick snack or a way to prepare a meal as part of your vacation needs.

We will only consider small pets on a case by case basis.

The Maravilla is located at the Western end of the Seawall. It is close to everything. You can enjoy the fireworks from Bands on the Sand during summer weekends as you sit on the balcony. The location is truly perfect in our opinion. We are about a quarter of a mile away from multiple beach pocket parks. The area in front of the complex is rocky. You can see the heated pool from the balcony. The Western side of the complex has 2 more gorgeous pools, a waterfall, and a hot tub. Our grounds are truly beautiful.

Absolute tranquility! From the first time we walked in the door, it was obvious that the owners did an amazing job on decorating, furnishings and extra amenities. Be warned, once you sit down on the chaise lounge by the large window with a wonder view, you may not want to get up. The condo is located just past all the hustle and bustle of the island, allowing for a relaxing visit. A stroll along the sea wall is a must. We are always excited to escape to the island! We will be back!

Absolutely Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is just as pictured. Decorated so cute. You feel like you are on vacay for sure. The HUGE window off the balcony gives you a view of the ocean, small pool and a small water area where you can see the fish jump and ducks swim. Morning coffee and that view...perfection! Kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to make meals. This was our third time to stay at Maravilla....the property is so well maintained. The guests and residents are fun, but respectful. WE will be back!

Near Perfection

  • 5 of 5

This was a fabulous choice for our first family Galveston vacation! The decor and details given in stocking the condo was on point! Boys loved the bunk beds and slept so well in their bit of privacy. Wish the balcony had been safe to go out on. Great stay.

Very Nice!

Great place, very clean and nicely furnished! My family really enjoyed our quick weekend getaway! My boys and their friends really enjoyed the go cart track and arcade that was within walking distance! My wife and I enjoyed watching the fireworks at moody gardens from the living room windows!

Very disappointing - not at all what we expected!

  • 2 of 5

We found out the DAY BEFORE we arrived that we could not go out on the patio due to the stability of the patio. We should have been given a discounted rate or moved to another property. Beware ! The condo pictures are a little off - this condo is very, very small and the bed was like sleeping on a concrete slab. It was the smallest "queen" size bed I had ever seen. I did not get a good night's rest the entire time I was there (3 nights).The patio "ceiling" was torn out and when you looked out , all you could see was rotting wood - not a pretty picture. And, the view is of part of the pond but also of the pool and the parking lot. The elevator did not work 1/2 of the time - what a hassle to wait and wait and then have to use the stairs. The complex is an older complex and at the far end of the seawall, thus not convenient to anything. But, the owner did a great job of renovating and the decor is lovely, but It is not big enough for more than 2 people. Obtaining documents for check in - i.e., password to condo, was a big hassle. I was also shocked at the steep price for a security deposit. I guess they must have had guests in the past who do not respect their property ????

Owner's Response: I am a bit confused as to why someone would state things they knew about when they booked. A prefect example is the security deposit. It is stated LONG before a tenant books. The actually reviews that note the true beauty of this condo are noted for your review We hope you do actually take the time to review all. This party waited till the 11th hour to ask to cancel and when we said no she decided to leave a review that truly is just not accurate. We implore you to please go read accurate accounts of what your experience in this condo will be like. The bed is a Queen and it is really a great bed. Previous travelers have not had an issue. This guest also paid for parking and HAD NO IDEA she paid. She then wanted to contest the parking fee because she had no clue as to why it was charged. I am really sorry this guest had an issue with the patio. It is something we could not foresee. We would NEVER want to inconvenience anyone during their stay. I really feel terrible that she did not have the best vacation we could have offered.
