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.

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.

Great place to stay and get away for a few days with the family.

  • 5 of 5

This place is fantastic! We had seven people staying here for several days and it was plenty of room. It is clean and we'll maintained. The balcony is huge and a wonderful place to sit and finish a busy day. Close to the beach, shopping and restaurants. Sherron was very easy to communicate with and responds very quickly. If we come back to Galveston we will definitely stay here again. Thanks Sherron for making my family feel welcome and comfortable during our stay.

Relaxing and restful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely stay here again. From the decor to the welcome note, it was all incredibly thought out. The patio overlooking the heated pool provided amazing views. My young boys loved the built in bunk beds. The layout of the bedrooms helped everyone have a restful stay. There were tons of DVDs and a cozy couch for cooler nights.

We chose a winner!

  • 5 of 5

We needed at least two bedrooms . . one with a king, two bathrooms and a view. This condo has an awesome balcony with fun furniture; the deal breaker. The owner is great to work with, always gets back soon with answers. Beds are comfortable, additional bunks in hallway are a plus, kitchen well stocked, property well maintained. ( oh yes. . . the walk in shower was wonderful) "Heated pool" right off our balcony was usable in February. Right on the Seawall for walking plus neighborhood of "magic carpet mini golf" and Jimmy's Bar and Grill at the Galveston Fishing Pier. First we were "Adventure Bridge Girls", a foursome; then the three girls headed home and my husband joined me for a week. We love the character of Galveston; there is always something to do and discover. Plus great dining. I highly recommend this property and would stay here again.

Making memories

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed staying at this beautiful place for the 2nd year in a row. Sherron makes it so easy to book and I love working with her throughout the trip. Her condo is beautiful and she gives it special touches at Christmas time with cute decorations and a Christmas tree in the living room. We enjoyed making more memories this year and look forward to many more.
