Everything in this ocean and bay view condo is new and it has JUST been remodeled! This condo sleeps 6. There is a new World Class Simmons Contender queen size mattress, a new Lazy Boy memory foam sleeper sofa and built in bunk beds that are adult strength with new pillow top mattresses. The condo has beautiful and unique decor that is local to Galveston. There is everything you need to have a fun and relaxing vacation including hotel toiletries (in case you forgot something!)

New TV, DVD player, cable and free WIFI are available. There are games, books and DVD’s for all ages to enjoy.

Washer and dryer are steps out the front door. The balcony has a beautiful and quiet view of the ocean and bay with an outdoor fan to keep you cool. Table and chairs are located on the balcony to enjoy the days and nights.

There is a secondary pool (that is heated in the winter), a kiddie pool and a hot tub that is heated year round! There are several BBQ pits and a volleyball net for your enjoyment. A workout room, recreational area and a business center are all available off the lobby to you and your guests. There are also 3 elevators to get you where you need to go.

There is a full size kitchen with upgraded granite counter tops. This kitchen is stocked with everything from a blender, toaster, coffee maker and a mixer to dishes, pots/pans, baking utensils, spices, coffee and much more!

Jimmy's on the Pier is within walking distance and has one of the best views in Galveston. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and have a full bar (call for hours during winter). You can fish on the pier year round, so bring your fishing pole or rent one there.

I personally own and manage this property to ensure everything is just the way it should be for every guest.

About Lara Coursey

I grew up in the area and always loved spending time in Galveston as a quick getaway with my family and friends. My dad worked as an entertainer in and around Galveston and his logo was 'Almost Famous One Man Band'. Therefore I named my first property in Jamaica Beach after him and now that I have my second rental I carried on his memory... 'Almost TWO Famous'!!!

Lara Coursey purchased this condo in 2014

Why Lara Coursey chose Gulf Coast

I found Maravilla and loved the size of the units which are much larger than most in Galveston. The pool area and amenities are so wonderful I couldn't imagine being in any other complex! The best eateries and things to do are all close but the complex is on the West end of the seawall which makes it quiet and convenient. Schlitterbaun and Moody Gardens just a few miles away and Schlitterbaun is open year round!

What makes this condo unique

I remodeled and furnished this property with the number one priority being comfort and relaxation. Me, my family and friends love staying here and so does my precious dog, Honey!

We had a great stay! The condo was wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first experience renting a condo. Would definitely rent again! We had a tiny issue with the shower head. It was repaired quickly and efficiently with no inconvenience to us. We spent our time on the beach and did not use the pool areas but they looked amazing and very clean. The condo staff were all very nice and welcoming. Thanks so much!!
