vacation rental description

From the moment you arrive at our lovely condo, "Galveston Tropical Sundancer" at the Maravilla Resort Condominium you will be impressed.  The beautiful floors, granite counter tops, cherry cabinets and tropical designer furninshings are there to welcome you.  Often its a dificult decision, should you sit on the balcony and watch the waves or enjoy the lush vegetation surrounding the two resort-style Maravilla pools, the secluded hot tub and the bubbling rock waterfall and meandering brook.

Your Galveston Island Condo features two bedrooms. The elegant master bedroom has a king bed and flat screen HDTV with cable.  In addition you can walk directly to the balcony complete with two lounge chairs and a round table with seating for four.  It's the perfect place for romantic evenings or your early morning coffee.  

Your master suite features an oversized tiled shower with amazing shower jets.

The second bedroom feaures a queen-size canopy bed along with a TV hooked to a XBox 360 Arcade and a VCR

The living/dining/eating area is open so it is easy to visit with family and friends. You can choose to dine at the table, at the counter (2 barstools) or eat outside on the balcony.

The sparkling clean designer kitchen features granite countertops and cherry wood appliances. Your kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, glasses, a blender, a smoothie maker, wine glasses and  champagne flutes, 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 Sundancer" 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 near 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.

Lone Star Rally...
We enjoy being a part of the RALLY goings-on...but also enjoy staying a few miles away so to enjoy the flip side of our vacation... This condo was perfect!!!! Water, Serf, Bikes, BEAUTIFUL!!! Thank you!!!

Owners response: We are so glad you were able to enjoy the Rally at our condo. Always lots of people in town for the extended weekend. You were wise to reserve early. We look forward to your return next year if your schedule allows - and yes even though it is the Rally, you will receive our returning guest discount.

Great Place to Stay

Review submitted: November 12, 2013   Date of arrival: November 8, 2013

We totally enjoyed our stay in the condo. The three of us had plenty of room and we especially enjoyed sitting on the balcony. We went for long walks along the seawall and enjoyed the quick access to Galveston restaurants and The Strand.

Wonderful Vacation

Review submitted: August 21, 2013   Date of arrival: August 3, 2013

When my daughter and son-in- law relocated to the Houston area, I was looking forward to vacationing in a state I had never been to.I had never used vrbo before, but after contacting Marilyn, I knew this was the way to start planning our next vacation.
Not being familiar with the area, Marilyn was so helpful. She had great recommendations, where to eat, shops, sightseeing and so much more!! Every time I had a question, she was quick to respond.
The condo was perfect, very clean & spacious, the balcony over looking the ocean was amazing!! The property is beautiful. The staff was so nice!! I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a great experience.
Thank-you again Larry & Marilyn for sharing your condo with us! I wish we could have met, maybe next time because we will definitely be returning!!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with young children, families with teenagers, pet-friendly, sight seeing
