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

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 18, 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.

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: 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.

October sunshine with children

  • 5 of 5
We could not have asked for a better place to stay in Sunny Galveston. The condo was lovely for me and my children. We were able to prepare delicious meals in the kitchen (everything we needed was there) and enjoy the food overlooking the pool on the balcony. There was plenty of room to sleep and play. My children especially loved the 3ft pool-perfect for kids. The condo is near a free "Sunny Beach" and we had so much fun in the sand and waves. Great ideas for fun places to eat for families--we loved "The Spot"
Condo was clean, relaxing, and everyone was so friendly!! We definitely recommend this condo as your go to spot in Galveston.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you and the children had a special Galveston visit. I have heard many people say that for young children the 3 foot pool is superb! However, I must say that Larry and I prefer like the larger and deeper "resort pool". BTW - the "Spot" is one of our favorite Galveston restaurants. We look forward to your next visit. Marilyn

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.
