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 Place!!!

Review submitted: August 23, 2014   Date of arrival: August 18, 2014

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.

Recommended for: girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thanks for your lovely words - family vacations are the best. I appreciate your comment about working with me - some people call us old-fashioned, but we believe in customer service and getting to know our guests. We look forward to your next visit.

Review submitted: May 11, 2014   Date of arrival: May 2, 2014

My husband & I really enjoyed our stay at the Maravilla, it was soooo relaxing we wish we had more time 2 nights just wasn't enough. Thx for accommodating us on such short notice, it was relaxing , romantic & very comfortable I can't wait to rent from the Swanson's again !!!!!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, romantic getaway

Owners 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!

Review submitted: April 30, 2014   Date of arrival: April 5, 2014

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!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway
