Overview

About the property

1BR/1BA Sleeps 6, 2 adult size bunks & sleeper sofa

We like to call this our "SeasideVIEW" condo. Enjoy sunset from your private quiet balcony overlooking the gulf and beautiful pool grounds. Then, make memories with your family on beautiful Galveston Island. E-mail from guest, : 'Hi, David, Just returned last night from Galveston and had to let you know what a lovely condo you have. . . there was not a thing we needed that was not there, the decor was so very attractive, location just right - that end of the Island is very good place to be. We did the ferry to Port Bolivar, Paddle wheeler trip, museum downtown as well as oil rig museum, trip to Penguin Island, old mansions (Moody was favorite), drove further west and ate at Richard's restaurant in Sea Isle on the marina - TWICE. Used the pocket beaches to good advantage. . . kept going to a different spot each day! Weather was tremendous. . . foggy early but burned off by 9 a.m. Sat on seawall and watched the surfers, went out on fishing pier. . . enjoyed eating at The Spot!'

E-mail from guest, (continue): 'We have stayed in condos on Hilton Head Island, Lake Tahoe - yours was the nicest. . . will miss your television. . . guess we will take a trip to our local television sales store! Thanks again for everything. By the way, the rental office was great, too. We arrived on Monday afternoon and went there in case they could rent to us one day early. . . gave us an hour for the housekeepers to finish and we were in. And, the pool is lovely! Hope to be back. . . Don and Donna Williams in Indiana.'

About Dave Ruch

Pam & I live in Denver, but enjoy visiting Galveston with our Grandkids. They love to splash in the shallow beach water. Eliana wants to drive next time with her new learner's permit :-)

Dave Ruch purchased this condo in 2009

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Dave, We had a great stay! The accommodations were great. The kitchen was well equipped. The only addition we could think of was maybe a sponge. We brought some DVD's and watched them on the flat-screen and we loved the surround sound. We especially enjoyed the movies because the hurricane was coming and we couldn't be on the beach as much as we wanted. It was extremely clean (no bugs) and we enjoyed our stay. Thanks, Mike

By the way, the miniature golf course nearby was the best we've ever played on!

Perfect spot for Ironman Texas 70.3

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time I've used these accommodations for Ironman Texas 70.3 and it was everything I expected and nothing I didn't. I would definitely stay here again!

Great gulf view/front condo

  • 5 of 5

Overall very happy with this condo. We like the location, cleanliness, views, and amenities. Excellent communication from Dave. My favorite is to sit on the balcony for breakfast or in the evening with an adult beverage and enjoy the gulf view, the breeze and the sound of the waves. Highly recommend this place!

Nice property and views

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family. We felt right at home. Very nice large pool. The heated pool was getting repaired so we couldn't enjoy that one. Fun miniature golf is right next door. Balcony view was perfect. Thanks for the memories Texas!

Gorgeous View, Well Kept, Great Communication

  • 5 of 5

The room was fantastic had everything we needed plus a beautiful view and Dave was great! Very easy to communicate with and very quick at responding if needed. The parking was a little limited but only due to some construction. My family came in from dinner late Saturday night and the parking attendant let us park in a spot not normally parked in due to the limited spaces. He was very understanding and friendly and assured us it wouldn't be a problem. I definitely recommend Maraville Condos for your stay. We have 4 kids and 2 adults and we all fit perfectly.

Nice stay. Very nice condo. Great view of the ocean without an oceanfront price.

Suggestions:

Get the flat screens on hi DEF. The bedroom was missing the remote and with the TV almost on the ceiling that’s pretty much a need. Maybe make sure Someone does a run-through for these little amenities and that they have not gotten lost somewhere. Other than that it was a fantastic time and we would return.

Owner's Response: Hi Brian! The mystery of the missing remote. In ten years, we’ve never had a remote just disappear. As you know, we provided options, and a replacement was available before your departure. I’ve restocked our spare box over the refrigerator with new batteries and spare remotes for both TVs in the condo. Hopefully, we will be ready for any surprise during your next stay. You trusted us with your vacation, and I take that seriously. You are welcome back anytime, and thanks for being so patient! Best, Dave

Clean, beautiful view, great location

  • 4 of 5

We did all the cooking in the condo and it was equipped with everything we needed. King size bed was super comfortable. In the evening, we sat on the balcony listening to the waves of the ocean and enjoyed the breeze that came from it. The only hiccup was the first night we got there, the neighbors downstairs did bang on the ceiling a few times due to our 3 yr old doing ballerina spins out of excitement and it was only 8pm. So we had to remind them to use their ‘tiptoe’ feet. Not the owners fault at all. Dave was more than attentive throughout the whole stay. For that we are thankful. We made beautiful memories that will last forever.
