We had 10 staying in the condo the AC in the front section where the kitchen is located along with washer/dryer never cooled enough and it was way too HOT!!! Parking too was not ideal. Had 3 cars and had to park behind other cars and at the front of the property.
Manager response:
We are sorry to read this guest had some disappointments. We inspected the air conditioner and found it working well, and parking is "first come, first served." Thank you!

The decor was updated and the beds and showers were great.

Didn’t feel like the blankets are clean. They had dried nasty looking stuff on them. They have throw pillows all over the bed. They don’t look or smell clean. The ceiling fans have thick dust on them. Some of the elevators aren’t working and the one I found that did work was so hot inside it and didn’t seem to want to open up when I was in it so I only used it once. So while on vacation you got to walk up a lot of stairs. You can’t use the balcony. Some of the stairs have caution tape so you can’t use those. The outside of this condo is not nice looking. The big pool was really nasty looking. It’s just not worth what you pay. If the inside was clean it would be nice.
Manager response:
We are very sorry to see this guest did not feel comfortable here. Housekeeping has taken care of the mentioned items, and the HOA is responsible for the pool. Thank you!

Our stay was pleasant and your condo is lovely. Everyone was very comfortable. Your property will be awesome when you finally repair all of the balconies and keep your elevator in working condition.
Manager response:
We will be delighted as well when the HOA has the balcony repairs completed. Thank you!

The Condo itself was was functional, and fairly clean, minus some sand and dead cockroaches (easily cleaned up). No information about the TV channels available. We tried to watch the Astros games at night, but No FS1. The location is at the end of the sea wall, so not to close to Galveston, not to far away from restaurants and entertainment, and only a few miles to the public access of the beach. The facility that the Condo is located in is under construction. There are panels missing, ceiling repaired, rust on the railings, rabbits and rats on the grounds near the hot tub. They are working to fix everything, so give it a year from 10/17.
Manager response:
We apologize if construction was a frustration; unfortunately, we were not given an estimated time of completion by the HOA. Pest control preventative measures have been taken. Thank you!

This unit is in a great location and has a lovely pool. The overall appearance was. Unkept property. Elevator was put of service most of our stay. The staff was very friendly and welcoming.

Family of 10 stayed in the Makin Time condo very comfortably. It was beautiful inside and very spacious for our family! Everything was very clean, well maintained and decorated so cutely! Our kids loved the bunk bed alcove! The pools at Maravilla were also great and since there were 3, the pool never seemed crowded. Would come back again!

The unit was awesome. Our family had a grand time and enjoyed the two pools.

Stayed 2 nights....3 couples , two toddlers and two older kids. Good amount of bedding and space. A few issues: we were told about the balcony AFTER we booked it....and the unit is not the same without being able to use the balcony. We weren't offered any discount for our trouble..i had to ASK for it, and even then was only given a 10 percent discount. Due to the noise problem (described below) , this was not a place I would suggest, even though it is charming and quaint and cozy. The video and footage of the place make it look significantly larger than it is ...but we expected that.
NOISE:. Biggest problem was the SIGNIFICANT noise from midnight to about 4 to 5am every night from the unit directly above us. Continuous noise and walking and dropping items....I barely slept at all for two nights.
Property: indoor condition was very very good. Outdoor condition poor...the property says it is non smoking but there were smokers and cigarette lamps available to everyone...so i guess it is not a non-smoking property. Good amount of parking. Friendly people everywhere. Wonderful pool and grassy lawn. Volleyball court a plus. Good price overall too.
Manager response:
We apologize for the disappointment this guest experienced with the balcony. The balcony restrictions will be lifted in August per the HOA. Until then we have removed the balcony from the advertised amenities.

We stayed in this condo for a mini vacation and it was extremely beautiful and very clean. Location was great and the property was great as well. We enjoyed our stay and we will stay again.

Had only three days in Galveston and needed sleeping for 6 adults. This condo was set up perfectly for our purposes. Three nice sized bedrooms all with full bathrooms, newly updated with many high-end amenities. Nice pools and grounds well kept.
