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.

Beautiful condo with amazing patio!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was wonderful! We spent many mornings enjoying our coffee on the beautiful patio overlooking the pool. Everyone was friendly and helpful. We had everything we needed to enjoy a week in Galveston. I can't wait to go back!

Perfect family get-away!

  • 5 of 5

I brought my two adult sons and sixteen-year old daughter to Galveston Island for some family bonding time, and to celebrate my sons' college graduations. The condo fit our needs perfectly! The location was very convenient with a great view off the balcony. The kitchen and bathrooms were well equipped and the bedrooms, living area and balcony were very comfortable and pleasant. The swimming pools were very clean and enjoyable, parking was convenient and all instructions were clear and easy to follow. We will definitely return and highly recommend Sherron's hospitality to all.

Fun time in Galveston!

  • 4 of 5

Our family (family of 5 + 2 grandparents) had a fantastic time here. They have really utilized the space to the fullest! Plenty of room for everyone and a convenient location. Loved the amenities (though the heated pool was not heated when we were there, so swimming was a little chilly). LOVED eating out on the spacious deck!

The one drawback for our family was the size of the kitchen. It's pretty much a one cook kitchen. If you plan to cook there just know that space is limited for having multiple people help out.

Otherwise, fantastic time had by all!

Great get away!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing condo to get away! The décor is absolutely perfect: tasteful, beachy, and fun. The DVD library was such a nice addition - and a welcome surprise to the kids for a fun movie night. The deck was amazing...looking forward to coming back and getting to utilize it during a summer stay.
