About Lori LeMay

We are a family with two boys ages 7 and 12 and a new baby girl. We purchased our condo several years ago to make memories with our family. We hope you can make some here as well:)

Lori LeMay purchased this condo in 2011

Why Lori LeMay chose Galveston Island

The Maravilla is a beautiful, well-kept property with nice amenities. We especially love the resort pool. The location was ideal for to everything but not in all the congestion and traffic.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo has incredible views of the gulf and lagoon from the balcony, yet is tucked away in a quieter part of the building. We love having our unit directly in front of the east side pool so that we can watch our older children swim from the balcony.

Perfect condo for our family of 6.

  • 5 of 5

We have a 16, 14, 11, and 11 year old. The bunk beds were perfect for 2 of them and the sofa sleeper was great for the other 2. Super clean, nicely decorated, and comfortable. We walked to the beach every day as it was literally right across the street. We felt safe and it was quiet. Perfect area for those vacationing in Galveston.

The Beach-Side Cottage was beautiful and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our room. It was right off the seawall and minutes away from seawall attractions. Lori was really responsive to all of our questions and was quick to respond. We brought food to cook and the kitchen is stocked with everything you need.

Awesome! Clean, cute beach decor, great location!!

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying here. The kitchen has everything you’d need. The coastal decor is really cute, the beds are all so comfortable. The bunk beds are really comfortable too. And the couch is a sleeper sofa. Everything is spotless and clean. The host is extremely kind and responsive. The building is quiet, there’s 2 pools, and you have a view of the ocean. Cable and Wi-Fi work great. Parking is easy. I highly recommend this cottage by the beach!

exceptionally clean

  • 5 of 5

This condo was great. The only issue we had was the sinks and tub hardware were very loose. They need to have maintenance come out and service the hardware. The facility was exceptionally clean and the pools were all great. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a relaxing homey vacation.
