Location

Car: Recommended

The Maravilla Resort is located at the West end of Galveston's historic Seawall Boulevard, within walking distance to Jimmy's Fishing Pier, Miniature Golf and Go Karts and close by (within 5 - 15 minutes) of Moody Gardens, Schlitterbahn, Pleasure Pier and the Strand, as well as jogging on the seawall, tons of shopping, restaurants and beach activities.

Enjoy the fireworks at Moody Gardens on a summer Friday or Saturday night from the complex.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Galveston, TX, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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.
