About Randy Haggard

We live in East Texas 94 miles from condo. Semi-retired.

Randy Haggard purchased this condo in 2015

Why Randy Haggard chose Texas Gulf Coast

This condo is newly renovated. First available March 2015. All tile and granite. The Maravilla Condos are located on Seawall Blvd facing the Gulf of Mexico, and near Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn Water Park.

What makes this condo unique

We are on the quieter end of galveston island. Near enough to enjoy galveston but quiet enough to enjoy the outside. We look forward to the sunrises from our balcony. They are spectacular!

Not a good fit

  • 3 of 5

Vacation and renovation do not go together well. First morning we were there, the construction noise and blaring radio started at 6:00 am. Same for the next three days. The noise continued until 5:00 pm every day to the point that we stayed gone all day for the duration of our "restful" vacation. Very large bugs and dirty plastic dishes did not help our viewpoint of this condo. When taking the linens off the beds at the end of our stay and discovering what appeared to be blood on one of the pillows, we decided this wasn't a place we would return. Three teenagers with us...WAY too small. Between the noise and bumping into each other, was anything but restful. Galveston, however was very nice and the proximity to the beaches and entertainment was great. Swimming pools were beautiful and clean and security was excellent.

Owner's Response: I'm truly sorry for the discomfort that our guest had. When they called me, I did instruct them to contact the front desk. The HOA does have strict rules as to when construction work can be done. Apparently, the crew above out unit was not following the rules. I have contacted the HOA and filed a complaint with them. Until the construction, we have not had any problems with this unit. As far as a fit or not, the description of the facility is very clear. We have had several guests who have had six adults staying with them with no complaint. We are sorry for any inconvenience they may have had.

I DONT KNOW WHERE TO START WITH THIS REVIEW PLEASE READ YOU WILL BE VERY SHOCKED....

  • 1 of 5

I DONT WRITE REVIEWS AT ALL BUT THIS STAY WAS WELL NEEDED TO INFORM OTHER RENTERS STAY FAR AWAY FROM THESE PROPERTY OWNERS. WE ALWAYS STAY AT THESE CONDOS EVERY YEAR AND WE PICK A DIFFERENT ONE EVERY YEAR JUST TO CHANGE THINGS UP. THIS YEAR WE PICKED THIS ONE BECAUSE IT LOOKED SO NICE ON LINE. IT ALL STARTED AS WE GOT TO THE CONDO ON THE 17 OF JULY I WALKED IN TO THE OFFICE AND STARTED TO CHECK IN. THE OFFICE MANAGER SAW THAT THEY DIDNT HAVE A ROOM WITH THIS NUMBER AND SAID THE ADDRESS WAS TO THE CONDOS DOWN THE ROAD. I THOUGHT THIS WAS VERY ODD BECAUSE THE PICS THAT WAS ON VRBO WAS FROM THE MARAVILLA CONDOS. SO I THOUGHT TO MY SELF MAYBE I MADE A MISTAKE SO WE WENT TO THE OTHER CONDOS AND CHECKED INTO THE FROM OFFICE AND THEN WENT TO THE ROOM. AS SOON AS WE WALKED INTO THE ROOM IT SMELLED VERY BAD AND THEY PLACE WAS A MESS. SO I LOOKED ON THE PICS ON VRBO REV PAGE I HAD ON MY PHONE AND THE PICS WHERE THE WRONG CONDO. RANDY EMAIL SAYING THAT HE WAS OUT OF TOWN TO CALL HIS WIFE SO WE DID. HIS WIFE ACTED LIKE WE DID SOMETHING WRONG AND SAID SHE WOULD CALL ME BACK. SHE DID AND WAS STARYED SAYING SHE WAS SO SORRY ABOUT THE MIX UP AND THAT WE NEED TO GO BACK TO THE MARAVILLA CONDOS AND SHE GAVE S THE RIGHT ROOM NUMBER. WE GOT IN OK AND SHE CALLED US BACK TO MAKE SURE ALL WAS WELL AND STATED THAT WE WOULD BE CONPENSATED FOR OUR TROUBLE. WE AGREED ON TEM SENDING US A CHECK BACK FOR ONE NIGHT AND THAT HER HUSBAND WOULD CALL TO GET OUR ADDRESS TO SEND IT. WELL A FEW DAYS LATER WHILE WE WAS STILL THERE I GOT AN EMAIL FROM HIM AND HIM BLAMING ME FOR THE MIX UP. DUE NOTE I HAVE MY 10 YEAR OLD KID AND A PREGNANT WIFE WITH DOING ALL THIS. HE SAID HE WOULD GIVE US A FREE NIGHT NEXT TIME WE COME DOWN. WE STATED THAT WE DIDNT WANT TO STAY AT HIS PROPERTYS EVER AGAIN AND JUST TO GIVE US WHAT IS WIFE STATED THEY WOULD DO. NEEDLESS TO SAY WE GOT NO WHERE. NOW IM WAITING ON MY DEPOSIT TO BE RETURNED AND I HAVE EMAIL HIM AND SO HAS VRBO AND HE WILL NOT RETURN THERE EMAIL NOR MINE. I WOULD NOT BE WRITING THIS IF HE AND SHE WOULD HAVE OWNED UP TO THERE MISTAKE AND JUST GIVE WHAT WAS OWNED. SO I HAVE STARTED TO TAKE THE ACTION I AM NEEDED TO MAKE SURE THIS GUY DOESNT DO THIS TO ANOTHER RENTER. SO BEFORE YOU PUT YOUR SELF WHAT ME AND MY FAMILY HAVE GONE THOUGH PLEASE LOOK AT ANOTHER PROPERTY OWNER. VERY SHADY PROPERTY OWNERS............ BY THE WAY TE CONDO WAS GREAT THAT WAS THE ONLY GOOD THING ABOUT TH STAY WAS THAT IT WAS A NICE CONDO.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry for the confusion. We did accidently send the wrong welcome letter to this renter...first problem and I apologized for the mistake. In ALL of our correspondence, we instruct the renter to contact us immediately if there are any concerns or problems. This renter did not contact us until they had tried several things and already had an attitude one they finally called. They told me that they didn't read any of what I had sent them...second problem. Had the renter followed instructions, all this would have been taken care of in moments. From start to finish, this whole episode was resolved within 40 minutes. I have answered all his calls and emails that I have received. In response to who did something wrong, the renter could have avoided this entire episode had he only read what was sent to him.

Happy Renter

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfect fit for my husband and I along with 2 early teens and one 5 year old and at a reasonable price. The condo was very clean and well equipped with kitchen utensils. We visited Schlitterbahn Water Park and Moody Gardens which are only a 5 minute drive from the condo. The 3 swimming pools on site are very convenient especially the 3 foot deep walk in pool for the 5 year old. The owners gave us prompt answers to all our questions. We would definitely stay there again and recommend to others visiting Galveston.
