Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
Condo, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Visit the beaches of Galveston, the historical Strand District and then come back to comfort! Tastefully and playfully decorated, fully furnished and equipped and comfortable! The balcony has views to the Gulf of Mexico and is just above the tropical manicured landscaping of the Maravilla Resort.

The bedroom features a comfortable queen bed and additional sleeping (up to six people total) from the sleeper sofa in the living room and space-saving bunks. A large full bathroom accessible from both the master bedroom and hallway make it convenient to share.

Whether you opt for cooking your own meals while on vacation, or dining out and snacking on your leftovers, you will find everything you need in the kitchen to prepare morning coffee to midnight snacks.

Pelican Paradise

This specific room is not ideal for small children. The sliding glass door to the balcony does not close all the way or lock. A wooden dowl is used to keep is closed and locked. Small children can remove the dowl causing a unsafe situation for various reasons. The television was not working while we were there, which was also unpleasent for small children. One of the comforters was not usable due to what looked like feces on the corner. Bathtub needs to be refinished and bathroom door to master bedroom has some flaking. Other then that, the place was well kept, ocean views, and facility was very well kept.

Owner's Response: We have thanked this guest for bringing her concerns to our attention, and explained to her prior to this review that we have addressed each of her concerns for which she did thank us. None of these concerns were brought to our attention during her stay though we do ask our guests to thoroughly check the property upon arrival. We would have much preferred to have the opportunity to correct them ensuring an exceptional stay. Fixing the television required a phone call to the cable provider which we did, the "unuseable comforter" was professionally cleaned prior to this guest's arrival and after their use, we are hopeful that professional cleaning will be sufficient to avoid replacement as it was stained by food or something else, we aren't positive. The bathtub had been resurfaced earlier in the year and evidently there was moisture under the materials used, this has been corrected already. We were unable to determine any flaking under a door that she mentioned but will continue to monitor this. Our goal is 100% customer satisfaction and repeat and referral business. We strive to make all of our guests comfortable during their stays and to correct problems as we become aware of them. Everyone makes mistakes, it is how you recover from them that proves your customer service abilities. We only wish we had been given the opportunity to correct these concerns prior to our valued guest's departure.


Activity and Interests

There is always something going on in Galveston! Winter Texans call it home coming from the midwest and northeast parts of the United States as well as Canada. Y'all come on down! "Winter" in Galveston includes events like Dickens on the Strand and Mardi Gras, spring brings us an IronMan Triathalon event, Sand Castle Building Competition, FeatherFest and of course Spring Break, and fall includes Lone Star Rally. Live musical and theatrical entertainment is available at the Grand 1894 Opera House, and there are frequent "art walks" featuring local artists.

Of course if you just want to sit on the beach and relax that option is always available. The Maravilla Resort is directly across Seawall Boulevard from the Gulf of Mexico. While there are steps that lead from the Seawall into the Gulf, this is not a sand beach but rather large rocks. Folks do walk in to swim and fish regularly, but if sand between your toes is your thing - there are beaches of all types from more secluded (without lifeguards, bath houses or eateries) to more public with lifeguard stands, restroom facilities and snack shacks within 1-3 miles of the complex and ample parking is available at these locations.

Galveston is growing! The Historic Pleasure Pier is being brought back with a carnival atmosphere,

rides, games, etc. Look for this to be completed in late May. Also, directly to the west of the Maravilla on Seawall Boulevard, the Marriott Corporation is constructing new hotel options for future visitors. Construction hours are somewhere in the vicinity of 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and there is heavy equipment and at times more noise than others. Please don’t let this stop

you from coming as we have reduced our rates to accommodate for the inconvenience, even though the heaviest noise time is during the day when most of our guests are out sightseeing, at the beach, etc. The front building and some west side units at the Maravilla are undergoing a facelift with new siding and railings being installed. The units that we manage in these areas

during this time. There may be noise to some of the other units while this progress is being made. Some of the Maravilla units, likewise, are undergoing facelifts to their interiors and you may from time to time hear noise associated with that, but work hours end by early evening. Experience Galveston now, while our rates are lower!

This and several other greaat Galveston properties managed by My Galveston Getaway. If your groups needs more than one place to stay let us know - we can put you as close (or as far away) as you want to be.
