First Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time on our first vacation as a family of three! The condo was clean and easily accessible, and we enjoyed being on the bottom level because we brought a lot of stuff! We were there just after peak season, so the community and beach were quiet and uncrowded.

The window in the bedroom is right behind the elevator, and it makes the room stay dark for sleeping in. There was enough room for the pack and play since our 1-year-old is too small to sleep in the bunk beds. It is a short walk to the beach, and the added bonus of beach service was wonderful. The attendant was very friendly and helpful. My only tip for this condo is to remember to bring slippers. The floors are all tile, and there are no mats or rugs, which can be fatiguing and slippery at times.

We loved our time here because it is close to the beach, restaurants, and shopping. The owner was pleasant and easy to work with. This condo is a great value, and we look forward to staying again.

Meh.

  • 2 of 5
First, the positives....
1. Proximity to the beach. Just a short walk!
2. Proximity to restaurants and shopping. Everything you may want to access seems to be just around the corner!
3. The owner of the condo has the kitchen well stocked. If you want to stay in and cook she has what you need.
4. Use of the beach chairs and umbrella-love this!

Now to the negatives...
1. The front door and master bedroom are directly across from the only elevator access to this building. Many nights we were startled awake for people having conversations while waiting at all hours to get on the elevator. There will be times you can't leave or enter the unit for the people waiting on it as well.
2. I'm told that our experience wasn't the norm but when we arrived the floors were slick-but not wet-and the unit had a bad smell to it from our first entrance to our last exit. The floors were dirty as well as other parts of the unit. Upon giving the owner a heads up she precedes to give my personal phone #, not the condo phone #, to the very angry cleaning person to whom I then had to defend myself and opinions. I'd already cleaned the infractions and took care if the floor myself so I didn't need then to come back over-not that I would want the "emotional Brazilian" (owners words) cleaning lady anywhere near me or my family after the phone conversation we'd had.
3. The bed is terrible! If you move a pinky toe it squeaks! The hallway mattresses are hollowed and flattened in the middle. So if you are looking for a great night sleep be sure to exhaust yourself on the beach so your sleeping arrangements don't even matter!

I want to relax on a vacation-not be exhausted because I can't get a good nights sleep because of noise and general discomfort. I want to feel comfortable walking barefoot in the place I'm staying for a week. Thise didn't apply this year so we will not be renting this unit again and I can't recommend it for anyone either.

Owner's Response: I want my renters to experience a condo with all the comforts of home and all the pleasures of being away. I am sorry that this was not the case with this renter. She emailed me to complain about the housekeeping but never called the housekeeper herself as is on the instructions sheet. So to remedy her complaint I asked my housekeeper to call her to remedy what she complained about. The adult way to do something is directly contact the person that can fix this. She complained about the 1/2 roll of toilet paper. The leave a single roll, whereas a lot of people are used to double rolls and a roll under each vanity. She also complained there was a bag of sheets on the sofa. They are for the sofabed and were clean but my housekeeper will now label as such. They also said they mopped with Lysol so maybe that was the smell she wasn't used too. My housekeepers (a man & wife team) have been with me a long time. They would do anything for you. If they didn't do something to your liking let them remedy it. Everyone has a job to do and to cut them off was rude and not respectful.

Second Time Around in This Unit

  • 5 of 5
This was my wife and my second visit to this same unit. We first stayed here in 2012. It did not disappoint the second time around. We feel this is a great value for its closeness to the white, sandy beaches Miramar Beach (Destin area).
We like the first floor location and the ample parking in front of the unit. Unit has all the comforts of home. The only thing we missed was our DVR.
We love not having to lug beach chairs and umbrellas to the beach every day. Bech crew had everything set up by 9 in the morning. Crew was polite and helpful. They did not have their hands out for tips every time you turned around.

Very comfortable stay and reasonably priced. My seven year old son and I spent Spring Break here in Maravilla. For being a single mom, I felt very safe in the gated community. The brief walk to the beach was worth every penny. We spent most of our time on the beach, and the beach service was an excellent perk! The condo was very accommodating, and I appreciate the opportunity stay in such a beautiful community on one of the most beautiful beaches.

Owner's Response: Maravilla is a great family friendly complex located in beautiful Miramar Beach. Everything is close by. This first floor condo is easily accessible with no stairs or elevator to contend with. The beach chair & umbrella set up means bringing just your own beach towels & cooler.

Great First Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Maravilla condo was nice and clean. It was definitely represented exactly as described. Perfect condo for our family and conveniently located to beach as well as all the restaurants and attractions in Destin. Thanks to the owner of the property, she was very accessible for any questions. We would absolutely rent from owner again and be back to Destin for another family vacation.

Great Value at the Most Beautiful Beach in the USA

  • 5 of 5
Just like a home away from home right on the Gulf at a reasonable price. We especially liked the beach lounge chair setup daily included in the renta;, the quite, safe gated community; and very ample parking close to the unit. Also the unit is on the first floor and made loading and unloading of personal luggage a breeze.

WE WILL BE BACK In THE FUTURE!
