"Galveston Tropical Palms" at Maravilla-3 pools/hot tub

"Galveston Tropical Palms" at Maravilla-3 pools/hot tub

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Dec 13, 2014
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Experience a tropical paradise at beautiful "Galveston Tropical Palms" at the Maravilla Resort Condominium. From your spacious balcony (at 385 sq ft it is one of the largest private balconies on the Island), you can view the Gulf of Mexico, as well as the enjoy the lush vegetation surrounding the two pools, the secluded hot tub and the bubbling rock waterfall and meandering brook.

Your Galveston Island Condo features two bedrooms. From the elegant master bedroom you can walk directly to the balcony complete with wooden patio furniture and many plants. It's the perfect place for romantic evenings or your early morning coffee.

Between the two bathrooms there is a double ceramic tiled shower for your relaxation and enjoyment.

The living/dining/eating area is open so it is easy to visit with family and friends. You can choose to dine at the antique table in front of the window or eat at the barstools on the granite counter or dine on the balcony (placemats and cloth napkins provided).

The sparkling clean designer kitchen features granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Since this is my vacation home away from home it is fully equipped with dishes, glasses, a blender, wine and marguerita glasses, champagne flutes, an electric skillet, an electric griddle as well as variety of spices and condiments for your use.

In case you want to "work" or find out more about some of the key Galveston tourist spots on your vacation, there is free WiFi in the main lobby. And if you want to "workout", there is an exercise/weight room where you can watch the gently waves of the Gulf as you exercise.

Well equipped and comfortable Galveston retreat

  • 4 of 5
Looking down from the spacious balcony at breathtaking landscaping surrounding the turquoise blue island pull with swim up bar, I was reminded of trips to the Caribbean. But this was lovely Galveston Island. Never before had my wife and I rented a condo that was so totally equipped. No slogging sheets and towels, soap and paper products, up the stairs for our weekend stay. It was all there, including coffee! Sure, we brought the wine and beer and groceries. But if we had wanted to eat out for the weekend, we could have arrived with swimsuits, a change of clothes, and our toothbrushes. The beach towels were even provided. It was clean and well maintained.

If the neighbors staying above us had not been bowling or lifting weights or whatever they were doing that made so much noise the first night, I would rate this with five stars. But that is certainly out of the control of the owners who stood ready to help out at a moment's notice.

Most certainly, Theresa and I will never rent a condo from anybody else in Galveston.

Great Place!!!

  • 5 of 5
I took my mom and mother in law!!! We loved it!!! Nice clean had everything we needed and then some. Not a lot of rules on the property, where you felt harassed. Friendly people. Grounds well kept, BUT you can't beat renting from Marilyn. I will be going back a lot. You couldn't hear anyone outside your condo. AWESOME.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your lovely words - family vacations are the best. I appreciate your comment about working with me - some people call us old-fashioned, but we believe in customer service and getting to know our guests. We look forward to your next visit.

Owner's Response: So glad you could visit on short notice. When we have a last minute opening we try to be as accommodating as possible AND reduce the rates for last minute guests. We agree - we find Galveston Tropical Palms relaxing and romantic. We look forward to your next visit in this condo or one of our other 5 condos - all a bit different. Larry and Marilyn

Fantastic Condo with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time at Maravilla and in Galveston, so much to do my son and I can't wait to go back for more. We loved walking to the Seawall, batting cages and mini golf course in the evenings and enjoying as much sunshine as we could get. Marilyn and Larry were so accommodating, and the condo had cozy towels and beds too. My son also enjoyed the island pool and hot tub oasis as he calls it. What a great place to relax and take it easy, listen to the ocean and enjoy natural beauty! Thanks again! Looking forward to next time!

Maravilla Galveston Tropical Palms

  • 5 of 5
What an incredible condo. It was absolutely beautiful and had everything we could have possibly needed or wanted. Parking was a breeze. Ocean views from the deck. The pools, hot tub, all were fantastic. We got some excellent restaurant suggestions and enjoyed one of them(although we wanted to try them all) while we were there. The weather was supposed to be bad but turned out beautiful. We were so relaxed that when we thought we'd take a break and relax on the deck we ended up dozing off and sleeping for a couple of hours. You can't do that unless the location is great and it was! Thanks again to Marilyn for being a perfect host and a great person to work with... couldn't ask for a better contact in Galveston. Can't wait to book again soon...

We so appreciate your hospitality Marilyn. It was a great Easter and we will plan on coming back soon.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that you were able to spend Easter weekend at our condo. We so enjoyed the Easter Sunrise Service this year on the Seawall. Maybe Easter in Galveston will become a tradition for you. We look forward to your next visit either at this condo or at one of our other 5 condos - all a bit different. Marilyn and Larry (owners)

Great Galveston Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Property is immaculate and first class, and it has been tastefully renovated. Huge outdoor balcony overlooking the beautifully landscaped pool and hot tub area. Great location with close proximity to the West Beaches, Schlitterbahn and the Galveston Seawall. I would recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay and had a chance to experience Galveston Mardi Gras - always a special time on the Island. We look forward to your next visit. Maybe Mardi Gras 2015?

Location

Activity and Interests

"Galveston Tropical Palms" is on the Seawall, so you can stroll and watch the waves or bike from one end to the other. Your vacation paradise is close enough to downtown so you can experience all that Galveston was to offer - shopping, antiques, restaurants, The Strand, cruise ship dockings - yet far enough away that you are not in "tourist heaven".

Since you will be on the west end of Galveston Island, you are also close to Schiltterbahn Water Park, Moody Gardens, the newly opened Moody Gulf course, the movie theatre and miniature golf.
