Property Details

Updated: Oct 22, 2014
Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

“Galveston Tropical Getaway - #1” at Maravilla is ready for your Galveston beach holiday. Our one bedroom condo, at the popular ocean front Maravilla Resort Condominium, is located in the new section and decorated in cool relaxing colors with lots of art. Everything is BRAND NEW (with the exception of some artwork and the classic wicker furniture in the bedroom)!

We think of it as our Romantic Galveston Getaway and invite you to visit. This condo, one of our six personally owned and managed Maravilla condos, sleeps five with a queen-sized bed in the bedroom with a mirrored closet wall, a queen sleeper sofa in the living room and a single bed in a hide-away nook. All the floors and the balcony are tiled with 20 inch ceramic tile for a stunning look.

You can walk from the living room to your private balcony overlooking the largest of Maravilla’s three pools with a view of the hot tub and the Galveston Gulf in the distance. The well-designed modern kitchen is fully equipped with granite countertops and stainless appliances. You can eat at the bar or sit at the round table or dine at the small round table on the balcony. The bathroom has a tiled walk-in shower.

We now have good news for our friends and returning guests - 'Galveston Tropical Getaway - 2' is right next door to our original Galveston Tropical Getaway. This condo also sleeps five.

We are also delighted to report that the construction of the new Marriott Hotel next door is complete and with it comes a Starbucks coffee shop as well as a bar and restaurant right next door.

About the Owner

We, Larry and Marilyn, love the water and time in Galveston. It's a special treat when the grandkids visit and we can ride on the beach in our 1973 Volkswagon Thing. Larry is an avid fisherman and prepares the most delectable meals. Marilyn helps people make sound retirement decisions primarily with Medicare and long term care options.

Owner's Response: So glad you were able to celebrate your first anniversary at our condo - maybe it can be a tradition - your anniversary getaway? As I believe I told you Larry and I met at Maravilla and were married at Maravilla - lots of romance. Marilyn

Sprinter Break Fun

  • 4 of 5
We rented 2 units from Marilyn and Larry for our family of 5 (3 kids aged 14, 11 and 9) with the other unit for Grandma and Grandpa and their 2 dogs. Marilyn was always responsive and easy to work with. Upon entering the condos, it was like walking into a family member's home. Marilyn provided each unit with a choice of glassware, shampoo/conditioner in the shower, coffee with coffee filters, board games, cribbage board, ice in the ice box and DVDs. Unlike other experiences we have had, there was plenty of soap for dishes, towels, extra pillows and blankets. Our units over looked the pool with a brief glimpse of the gulf from a corner on the balcony; it was easily heard once the sliding glass doors were open. Even tho the weather wasn't cooperating with our plans (mostly wet, windy and in the 60s) our MN Hardy kids still had fun splashing in the surf and swimming in the pools. We enjoyed what we did see of Galveston-the Strand, the restaurants and the Gulf. Marilyn had some great recommendations for restaurants-their favorite was The Stop with fried pickels, great burgers and shrimp. We took a 40 min drive to visit Space Center, Houston-one of the more memorable parts of our trip. The only down side for our party was that the wi-fi was not up and working-Grandma needed it for work purposes as she is semi-retired. Marilyn and Larry had assurred us it will be coming-but the HOA has been given several dates about installation since Dec, 2013. Responsive as ever, Marilyn shared in Grandma's frustration with the wi-fi issue and even offered her hot spot for Grandma to use. I have already recommended these condos to family in Minnesota as possible destinations for Sprinter 2015. Thanks, Marilyn and Larry for a wonderful stay!

Outstanding!!

  • 5 of 5
We only stayed 3 days, but we were so impressed that we have already booked reservations for another of Marilyn's condos for this Fall for a whole month! We have been renting condos for various lengths of time for the past 10-15 years, and this was the very best we have ever experienced. Marilyn was extremely accommodating and lovely to work with. Everything about the condo was first class. The cooking utensils, pots and pans, dishes, etc. were all quality -- not the usual K-mart specials of other condos we have stayed at. The condo was also beautifully decorated with tasteful items that matched the ambiance of the location, and the furniture was also quality. The bed and coverings were very comfortable as well. The grounds were also beautiful with its swimming pools and hot tub. The exercise facility also had all the right equipment. We would certainly recommend any of Marilyn's condos at the Maravilla, and we are looking forward to this Fall for another stay. There are so many things to see and do in Galveston I am sure we will stay plenty busy.

The first thing we loved was the colors; matching furniture and paintings - so beautifully decorated. This is a brand new condo. Gorgeous new kitchen. Next we were mesmerized by the view from the balcony - a view of the ocean spilling it's waves and a large, tropical pool with hot tub, and lots of lounge chairs. Couldn't wait to get down there. The bed was quite comfortable - we slept like logs, waking to a beautiful sunrise and there's nothing like the romantic sunrise in Galveston!

We liked it so much we decided to rent another condo from Marilyn and Larry for a month this October. I trust Marilyn and enjoyed working with her. She was very straight forward and took care of any problem. The price was right and the romance is perfect. We look forward to the rhythm of island life. So smooth, so calm, so rich with history. CAN'T WAIT!!

Mardi Gras Weekend

  • 5 of 5
I've known Marilyn, the owner, and I've known about her six Condos at Maravilla, but this was the first time I've actually stayed at any of them. Marilyn has done a great job decorating her condos so that they have all the finest materials, granite countertops in the kitchen and in the bathroom, modern fixtures throughout, ample flatscreen HDTVs with cable access, colorful decorating, DVD player and DVDs, fully appointed kitchen with very modern appliances, and the unit we stayed in, #135 was very comfortable and quiet.

We visit Galveston several times a year but on this trip we discovered "Jimmy's Pier" which is a short walk from Maravilla on the Seawall. what a great find. It is supposedly the longest fishing pier in Texas with a great restaurant on top. We also walked over the Go Cart/Arcade which was only about 5 minutes from Maravilla. I'm an old man of 55 but I haven't had so much fun in ages, and my 17 year old daughter loved it too. We were both "all smile" after our Go-Cart race...What a blast!

Hands down, the best part of the stay was the 15 minute shower each day! My wife and daughter said the same thing. We all loved the extra large shower head in the shower. I felt like I was standing in a waterfall.

We also enjoyed sitting on the deck overlooking the palm lined pool for a couple of our meals.

Marilyn and Larry, thanks for doing such a great job on your Condo and I can't wait to come back and check out your other units over time.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. It is particularly enjoyable for us when people we know experience Galveston at our condo. Your comments about the Go-Kart track were great. My grandson (age 7) will soon be visiting and an even older person (Marilyn age 68) will be smiling and laughing too. Looking forward to your next visit. Do tell your friends about our condo.

A work friend and myself wanted to get away for a long weekend so we did a little research and booked this place. So glad we did. The condo was as described and owner was wonderful to work with. We decided we wanted to stay a day longer and the owner was so helpful with the accommodations. Thank you very much. Will be back!
