About Sherron Watkins

We are from the Houston area and get down to use the unit as much as we can. We hope you enjoy your stay and ask that you treat the place as you would your own home.

Sherron Watkins purchased this condo in 2015

Why Sherron Watkins chose Gulf Coast

We purchased Paz de la Playa in late December 2014. San Luis Pass and the Galveston/Surfside areas were our home away from home in the summers. My grandparents had a place on the beach and we loved spending our days there.

Before the 1900 storm that devastated Galveston, my great great grandmother ran a hotel in Galveston with her husband. Lizzie and Thornton Thatcher spent their time between Galveston and Eagle Lake, Texas. I often refer to our unit as Lizzie's Lodge and Inn in a tribute to this pioneering woman who immigrated from Scotland to Texas in the 1800's.

What makes this condo unique

We love the Maravilla Condos - the place offers a fabulous stay in Galveston because of the pools as well as the proximity to the end of the Seawall (the beach) and the fun activities of Galveston: Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn and the Pleasure Pier. We selected our unit because of the oversized balcony, a feature unique to about 8 units at the complex.

A wonderful weekend away in a beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

This trip was exactly what was expected, absolutely perfect! The condo and the views were amazing and Sherron was so helpful. The pools were really nice, especially the heated pool at this time of the year. Couldn't ask for a better time!

Perfect place away from the hustle and bustle

  • 5 of 5

What a great place you have! The large patio was incredible and perfect for my morning coffee and watching the sunrise. It was exactly as described with all the amenities that you would need. Very clean and comfortable. Sherron was so friendly and easy to work with. Very quick to respond to emails. I have already started recommending this place to some of our friends here in Colorado!

Great Long Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The condo is so nice. Two bedrooms with nice beds and a pair of bunk beds. I spent a lot of time on the huge balcony. The condo is nicely decorated and in a great location. The complex is well maintained and the pool and hot tub were great fun for my two boys, 8 and 6. Sherron is attentive, responsive, and an overall pleasure. Thanks so much!

Perfect Patio

  • 5 of 5

This condo has an updated serene decor. The beds are comfortable, even the hall bunks. The patio area and furniture are awesome for breakfast and dinner times. A bit hot in the noon hours.

However, beat the heat in the 3 incredible pools. The main pool is extremely large, has a covered area for eating and nearby grill. Plenty of shaded areas around the pool with lounging chairs.

I appreciate the resort fees being added to the rental price. All you'll pay for is the parking permit. Overall a great place. Only con is the occasional noise from light planes at the nearby airport.

Beautiful Condo with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

From my 6 years old daughter to my 72 years old mom, we all had a wonderful time at this beautiful condo and we enjoyed the pools and hot tub as well. It is only 8 miles away from the Jamaica beach where you can drive your car on the sand. We will come back!
