Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Poolside Paradise at Maravilla is just that - Poolside AND Paradise. From the balcony of this truly unique, 1 bedroom + loft condo, you have direct access to the "resort" pool, one of 3 at the complex, and considered to be the biggest pool on Galeston Island with 330,000 gallons of water, palm trees growing out of the island in the center of the pool, and a palappa pool bar with swim up stoold on which to eat your picnic lunch.

The bedroom has a comfy king sized bed and walk-in closet, just outside the door you'll find a set of child appropriate bunks built in to the wall - so no obstruction to the hallway which also has a very spacious bathroom with tub/shower combination. Next you'll find the chef's kitchen with stainless appliances and everything you could possibly need to make a gourmet meal, warm leftovers from anyof the great restaurant options in Galveston, or make popcorn for familly movie night!

The living room has a comfy couch plus chairs so everyone can gather together to make plans for the day's activities. Look up from the living room and you will find the loft with two (2) convertible sofas, sleeping up to 4 in the loft. (the stairs to the loft are steep, so please take this into consideration when booking this particular condo with us.)

One of very few condos, at this complex or elsewhere - with its own washer & dryer in the unit. No quarters, and a great option for a long term rental or corporate apartment if working at Texas A & M Galveston, UTMB, or anywhere else on the island or close by!

the condo itself was not bad althought the TVS didn't work and took 2 days to fix. We did however find coachroaches in there on our last day - gross!! the rest of the resort is dated and needing repair. As we swam in the pool at night the coachroaches were everywhere. wouldn't go again

Owner's Response: The poster of this message did not rent Gulfview Paradisse at Maravilla. This condo has only one television as advertised in the property description and we have never had a cockroach problem or notice of a single cockroach in this unit. It has not been rented to anyone from Wichita, ever. This "review" should be disregarded.

Maravilla is a fabulous place

  • 5 of 5
The gulfview paradise at Maravilla was everything they advertised. Beautiful condo, great kitchen with all the comforts of home. We had 3 adults and 4 kids and slept perfectly. While there isn't a beach area directly in front, we drove 8 minutes west to a public pocket beach one day and came back and enjoyed the fabulous pool. The kids went swimming two times each day and loved every minute of the pool time. I sat on the huge balcony facing the gulf drinking coffee every morning and drinking a glass of wine every evening. It was great. The condo was clean, inviting and I would definitely recommend it . I plan to return next summer. The new pleasure pier was alot of fun. A little pricey, but fun. We ate at Tortugas Mexican was good.
