My wife and I spent three nights at this wonderful two bedroom condo. The appointments and furnishings are all first class. We getaway several times a year and this was one of the nicest we have rented. The views are spectacular both from the balcany and the master bedroom. The owner is charming and goes out of her way to help and make the stay memorable. We will definitely be back.
Very nice & comfortable condo

We had a wonderful time. The condo is a two bedroom 2-1/2 bath. The owner was exceptionally accommodating and allowed us to enter the condo early. Not just early, but very early. She said the cleaning crew had cleaned and we go go in as early as 10:15 am. Most places won't allow you in until at least 3-4 pm. I would certainly rent any of her units. The price was also very reasonable. Thank you for a great stay!
Owner Response: Our philosophy is "What goes around, comes around!" So whenever we can, we encourage our guests to arrive early and stay late. Can we promise this every time? No! But when we can it is our pleasure to do so. And our friends and guests have more Galveston time! We look forward to hosting you in one of our other 6 condos!
All the amenities. Excellent view.. a real home away from home

Owner response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return visit. As you might have read, our "Tropical Breezes" is the first condo we purchased and when we remodeled, we tried to make it like our second home. We hope you will visit again and as a repeat guest you will receive a 10 percent discount from the published rates. Marilyn and Larry

I took my family away for a few days to this condo and everyone enjoyed the stay. The condo is very roomy, clean and well furnished. Parking is convenient, the pools are refreshing. The only complaint about our stay was on my part. I didn't book it long enough. I am already trying to figure out dates to return.
Owner response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return visit for a LONGER stay. BTW, we offer our returning guests a 10% discount from our published rates so a longer stay is even more affordable. There is so much to do in Galveston - one is never bored!

We've stayed in many different places in Galveston and this one is my favorite. We will be back. The condo has everything you need and the view is the best in Galveston. Pool is awesome too. Marilyn is so easy to work with.
Owner response: So glad you were able to enjoy Galveston at our condo. And thanks too for the nice words about me. As owners of only 7 condos, Larry and i try to take particularly good care of our clients. No we are not electronically automated - a note from me is a note from me. See you next time.
Perfect Galveston Island Getaway!

We were in town for the Gritty Goddess mud run and stayed at this condo for the weekend. The condo was very clean, nicely updated, has a well stocked kitchen, comfy beds, a huge balcony and beautiful views of the pool and gulf. It is located on the 3rd floor but there are luggage carts and an elevator which are extremely helpful when hauling up luggage or groceries. The pools were clean and not overcrowded. The owner Marilyn, was friendly and very accommodating. Honestly, it is probably the best place that I have ever stayed in Galveston and I will most likely rent from her again. Thanks so much for sharing your condo with us!
Owner response: So glad you enjoyed our condo. We try very hard to provide "a bit more" for our guests such as a well-stocked kitchen. Just the type of accommodations we look for when we are renting. We hope you will be returning to one of our seven condos - and remember as a returning guest you will receive at least a 10% discount from published rates. AND congrats too for competing in the Gritty Goddess - that is not easy. Marilyn

We waited until the week of our trip to procure lodging but with our inquiry came a quick response, clear instructions, and the key to our weekend paradise! We arrived after the office had closed but, no worries, we had instructions on what to do. We were a party of two families; 3 adults & 4 kids. We used the well stocked kitchen to cook meals, snacks, keep our beverages cold, and make margaritas...which we sipped out on the balcony that overlooked the bigger pool in the complex. The kids used the dining room table to play games when they weren't out on the balcony, in the pool, or preening themselves in the 2 full bathrooms. We went to Moody Gardens the next day which is a short drive away. The next day my husband was glad for the TV so he could watch the ball game while my friend and I Iounged in the pool. The grounds were beautiful around the pool and there was a hot tub, too, but did not used it as the summer temperatures were hot enough. Maybe next time. Thank you! Thank you for our time. It was fun, fun, fun.
Owners Response: So glad you enjoyed your visit to Galveston. It sounds as though your time was very well spent. Yes margaritas on the balcony are always fun - that's why all seven of our condos have blenders. We look forward to your next visit, now as a returning guest where you will receive at least a 10%discount from published rates! How about a late Fall or early Winter visit when you CAN enjoy the hot tub.
The condo is perfect for families with kids!

Whether you have kids or not, Marilyn and Larry's condo is the perfect fit for guests that want to stay in a beautiful well stocked condo in a fantastic location with multiple pools and AWESOME views. Located on the west end of Galviston, it is close to the quieter, drive on beaches but is close enough to all the action near the pleasure pier. I highly recommend walking to the go carts and miniature golf course for evening activities. If you are looking at the pictures on the website and are thinking that they look too good to be true, I can assure you that it is even better than what you see! We plan on returning many more times!
Owners Response: We are delighted when we can share our condo (and Galveston) with folks from other states. Sometimes I think that Galveston is one of the world's best secrets for beach vacations. And we agree - it is enjoyable to stroll to Miniature Golf and the Go-Kart tracks. We also enjoy the batting cages behind the Miniature Golf when the grandkids visit. We look forward to your next visit. And bring your Colorado friends too. Our returning guests always receive a returning guest discount too.

What a fantastic time we had staying in Galveston, especially at Marilyn and Larry's condo. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable for six adults and one infant. We'll come back for sure!
Owners Response: So glad you enjoyed the Memorial Day holiday at our condo. We are glad you were able to use the Pack and Play too. We look forward to your next visit and hopefully a time when we can meet. We spent our Memorial Day weekend in Pearland working on the yard!

Marilyn is the BESTEST, we had a few requests and evething was "yes no problem" We staid in the 2/2.5 condo and it was WONDERFUL...beautifuly decorated, very comfy and cozy for 6 crazy woman bus drivers...The views were perfect from the front room/kitchen, the pools and the ocean, very relaxing!!. The aminities were great, WE cant wait for the next get together. I HIGHLY RECCOMEND Galveston Tropical Breeze.
Owners Response: I'm delighted that you and your friends had a great time at the condo - it was fun to meet you at the pool. A woman's get-together is the perfect way to celebrate the end of the school year!! Thanks for saying "Marilyn is the BESTEST". Both Larry and I try to accommodate our guests whenever we can. I can't promise an early check-in all the time, but when we can, we like to give our guests more Galveston time. Looking forward to your next visit with your returning guest discount.
Very Nice Condo

Review Submitted: 07/14/14
Our Galveston vacation was nicely enhanced by this welcoming townhouse condo. Downstairs, there is a full kitchen, dining and living area. The balcony has a beautiful view of the resort and the ocean. There are two bedrooms and 2 baths upstairs allowing for privacy for all. There were three adults and a toddler and I felt we all were able to have alone time as needed. The cost was close to that of 2 midprice hotel rooms, but with so much more space. The owner is also very nice and easy to deal with.
Owners Response: We are so pleased you had a lovely Galveston vacation at our Galveston Condo - one of our seven personally owned and operated condos at Maravilla. We look forward to your return visit where you, as well as all our returning guests receive at least a 10% discount from published rates.

Review Submitted: 05/12/13
We stayed at this pristine property at the end of March and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The weather turned unusually cold so we spent more time inside than expected. The spacious well equipped kitchen was delightful for preparing meals. The updated shower with dual shower heads was so relaxing. The master bedroom and large balcony had lovely ocean views. We would love to visit again!
Owners Response: Thanks for your kind words. As "hands on" property owners we so enjoy hearing from our guests. We are glad you enjoyed the kitchen - both Larry and I love to cook and we stay at the condo as often as possible. That means we have chosen quality appliances for our guests (and for us). Sorry that the weather turned a bit colder than expected - you will have to come back. And our returning guests always receive a loyalty discount.

Very nice upgraded condo. Kitchen is top of the line. Stainless steel appliances. Granite counters. Beautifully done. I would consider this a 5 star condo. Nicely renovated.
Owners Response: We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at our condo and look forward to your return visit - all our returning guests receive at least a 10% discount from published rates. Thanks too about your kitchen comment. Most likely you could tell that Larry and I like to cook and so designed the kitchen to make it user-friendly. We look forward to your next visit.
