Welcome to Birds of Paradise - a top floor (where you can see the birds and not hear the pitter patter of little feet above you) condo, on the west side of the Maravilla resort.
This condo has one of the best views anywhere - not only at the Maravilla but on the entire island. (Unfortunately - at the present time the balcony cannot be accessed due to a safety concern. Please ask us for a discount to rent this unit!)
No detail has been overlooked in this lovely condo!
The master bedroom boasts a comfortable king bed, lovely nautical decor, and sliding door access to the expansive balcony with seating for everyone, including a dining table for 4 complete with shade umbrella, just in case you've had too much sun. There is a television in this bedroom - a total of 3 in the unit, so no arguing whether to watch sports or the cooking channels. There is also a half bath (commode & sink) accessed through the master for privacy.
The second bedroom is almost as large, with a queen be, wall mounted flat panel television, and plenty of closet space for the clothes you've brought and all the souvenirs you buy while visiting Galveston.
There are twin bunk beds in the hallway - and they are true twin bunks - so even adults could feel comfortable sleeping here.
The living room is cozy with a leather sofa and seating for the rest of the group as well to gather around for a quick bite, to plan the day's activities, or have family movie night. The sofa is a sleeper, and there is sliding door access to the balcony from the living room as well. The television in this room is a "smart" TV - feel free to connect your ROKU, Fire Stick or Apple TV!
There is a second half bath accessed through the hallway - near the second bedroom and the bunks, and between the two half baths you will find a full tub/shower combination.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you'll need to either make popcorn for that family movie night (except, of course, the popcorn) to making breakfast in bed for your special someone(s), or full meals for the family.
The Maravilla resort boasts the most beautiful, troical grounds, gated for the community, surrounding three pools (the east pool is heated from fall to spring), a hot tub, volleyball net, picnic tables, BBQ grills for guest use, and more. The complex has a fitness center - so if you can't keep yourself out of the gym - you can work out while watching the waves. There is an outdoor ping pong table, cornhole game and a free book lending library or book swap if you forgot that beach read you were planning to bring.
You can pack light if you wish - as there are coin operated laundry centers at the complex as well.
The Maravilla resort charges $20.00 per vehicle for parking/resort fee. They will collect this upon your arrival - that is the ONLY thing not included in our pricing.
While our "cleaning" fee may seem higher than others - please note that it includes the cost of a damage waiver. We do not ask for a security deposit that ties up your credit card or you have to wait a while to receive your deposit back, if ever. It also includes use of quality bed sheets (no starchy white ones with us!) and bath towels during your stay - you don't need to bring your own or rent them from a service. Lastly - we include starter supplies of paper products, toiletries and perhaps most important - COFFEE! Please note that these are intended to be starter supplies - enough to make that first pot of coffee and get you started before you check out your surroundings, make your shopping list and head out - probably not enough for the entire group for your entire stay.
We look forward to having you Come Stay With Us at Birds of Paradise at Maravilla --- your first stay will NOT be your last.
