Great property for a Galveston getaway! 5 STARS

Guest: A beachlover from Kingwood (Kingwood, Texas)

Date of Stay: 08/09/12 Review Submitted: 08/14/12

We had 7 people stay at this property for two nights. The atmosphere and accommodations were very welcoming and clean. The location was great; just a short drive down seawall to where you can hang out on the beach. The property manager was fantastic to work with and answered all my questions quickly. I would hightly recommend this property to anyone with or without pets. We brought our German Shepherd with us and she felt at home there. We did bring our own kennel to keep her in when we were not inside the property so she would feel confortmable. There was plenty space to keep it in the living room. I can't wait for our next Galveston overnight; I know we'll want to go back to this property again.

A++ Flawless perfection! 5 STARS

Date of Stay: 07/26/12 Review Submitted: 08/06/12

My family of 4 and I stayed at this condo recently, we had an amazing time. The condo was very clean, loved the up to date appliances and plumbing fixtures, very classy. This place also has an amazing pool area, i was blown away with the size!!! A few kids with parents, never 'crowded.' (i was very impressed) Our trip consisted of mainly adults, so it was nice to hang out on the patio w/ drinks, look at the amazing view and listen to the ocean. The person I booked the trip with was so very nice as well. She was very thorough when answering my questions, and she was super prompt in replying to my emails. We had an amazing vacay!!!

Wonderful spot to spend my time away from home

Guest: Lola B (Dallas, Texas) 5 STARS

Date of Stay: 02/02/12 Review Submitted: 07/13/12

I received the information asking for a review from the owners who appear to want feedback and I completely forgot until I tried to book again today. Its nice that people appreciate the comments of their guests which could be either good or bad. Thankfully my experience was wonderful and I regret not posting this review sooner. The owners promised a 10% discount and I am currently working on booking the condo for September. I had such a wonderful view that honestly I would come back without the discount. I never thought Galveston would be such a nice place to visit during the winter but due to visiting family I now know its a great time of year to enjoy the island. This condo offered everything I needed. The view speaks for itself so I do plan to continue working with these owners and their property manager.

Recooping from Surgery

Guest: Donna W. (Port Neches, TX) 5 STARS

Date of Stay: 03/11/12 Review Submitted: 03/16/12

I chose to come to Galveston to recoup from back surgery. I was told to walk a lot and relax. Your condo provided a lot of both. When I needed to walk, I would just cross the street and take long walks on the sea wall while watching the waves or sunrise. Only about 2 blocks down is Jimmy’s Pier for GREAT food-we ate there for breakfast twice and lunch twice. When eating in the condo, we enjoyed the FULL SIZE appliances. A lot of condos have mini-versions. The view from the balcony was so close to the water and we enjoyed watching the pelicans fly slowly by above our heads all day. The pools were huge and my sister and her husband said the hot tub was very hot and strong. They loved it. Thanks for helping me recuperate! We loved your condo and will be back.

The last guest BOUGHT her own home away from home at the Maravilla during her stay.

Family getaway

Review submitted: June 27, 2014   Date of arrival: June 13, 2014

My favorite part of the Condo was the large balcony overlooking the ocean. I could have stayed there the whole time. The morning time was great sitting there with a hot cup of tea and listening to the ocean despite the traffic. It did get better at night. The view of the ocean at night with the moon shining on it was awesome. The Condo was located in a great location. The security man was very helpful as were the office people. Another favorite was the big clean swimming pool. The men did have a problem with the hot tub as the jets were not working properly. The Condo itself was nice but we was taken back by the one shower. It did work out for us. The only problem was the bunk beds. They was very hard to make up. I would like to discuss the bunk beds with you. We did walk down from the Condo to Jimmy's pier for breakfast. It was a great breakfast with friendly workers.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, romantic getaway

Owners response: As we reminded the guest when she called we do advertise very clearly we have a 1.5 bath. She called to ask why we have a safety guard on a 3rd story window as well and wanted to be moved barbecue the window opening was a must for her party of 4. She stated the couple she was with did not read the ads and she had mistakenly booked a condo with a 1.5 bath. We really advise travelers read the advertisement.

We are blessed for any review, appreciate the 4 stars as she did not the view was amazing and she wishes her friends would not have been so upset. We offered a discount for a second condo for the other couple which they did decline.

The bunk beds are advised for children, not adults. With a party of 4 adults I am concerned why they found this to be an issue since an adult should really consider if a bunk bed is the best space for them during a vacation.

Communication with the property manager and reading all ads, rental agreements etc is KEY to a successful vacation.

We appreciate the feedback and time taken to give it.
