vacation rental description

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.

activities and attractions in Galveston Texas

"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.

traveler reviews for this galveston condo rental

Great Galveston Getaway

Review submitted: February 24, 2014   Date of arrival: February 22, 2014

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.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners 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?

October sunshine with children

Review submitted: October 24, 2013   Date of arrival: October 9, 2013

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.

Recommended for: families with young children, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners 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

June Fun

Review submitted: June 16, 2013   Date of arrival: June 10, 2013

We had a wonderful time at your condo! There were 4 adults, a 5 year old, a 4 year old and a 19 month old! We even brought our poodle and there was plenty of room for all of us. The grandkids LOVED the pools. They would have stayed in the pools the whole time if we would have let them. It was really nice to be able to come back to the condo after running around all day and cook dinner and just relax. My favorite spot was the balcony. There was such a nice breeze blowing in the morning and then again in the evening. Thank you Marilyn for being so flexible with us and for mailing us the key we forgot! The condo is so convenient to everything too so we didn't have to spend a lot of time driving back and forth. Hopefully we will make a return visit next year!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway
