  • Family Vacation

    "Destiny-By-The Sea - The house has a great location and price was comparable to market. I would have like the house to be more updated with new TV's. Each room had a TV, yet it was not new flat screen quality, but "Tude" base technology. I would have also like for the master bath Jacuzzie to have worked and carpet in the master room his orginal and beyound its useful life. Owner could have also provided a vacuum for the house so that renters could clean as they go vs using just a broom. Pots and pan and smallware below average. Actually, we had to go out and buy wine glasses. The gas grill that was provided was above average and additional beach toys/charis as well. The lower level A/C unit was not working as we arrived and service tech arrived next day upon Owner notification, which was well handled and brought back on line the remaining two weeks we rented. I would return if upgrades are in place."

  • Great vacation condo!

    "My husband and I wanted to take a much-needed relaxing vacation to Destin for our 11th wedding anniversary. We have been to Destin several times before over the past few years but the Maravilla condo that we normally rent was not available for the week that we wanted. Because we were unwilling to change our date, we had to find a new unit to rent. This made me incredibly nervous and stressed because I am a clean freak and we are both very picky. After looking at photos and reading reviews about practically every rental unit under the sun, we chose Marge's rental unit. I held my breath as I put the key in the door and pushed it open. Immediately, my nervousness went away. The very first thing that I noticed was the fresh smell of "CLEAN" and I knew it was all going to be okay! The place was spotless. Everything was decorated very nicely. The furniture was comfortable. The bed was great. There was what appeared to be a full-sized washer & dryer in the utility room (although I didn't pay too much attention to that - it was vacation after all!). The kitchen was fabulous and well-stocked, including a blender, coffeemaker, pots, and pans. We cooked dinner 3 nights during our stay and we had everything that we needed. The cushioned lounge chairs outside on the balcony were heavenly. I loved laying out there with a glass of wine and watching/listening to the waves crashing. The view from the condo was wonderful. It was high enough over the palm trees that you had a clear shot of the beach. And being on the top floor - with no one above you - was perfect. We used the wireless internet and tv with no issues. The Maravilla community was very well-kept and beautiful. Workers were seen bleaching the elevator floor each day, replacing walkway ceilings, and cutting the grass. They definitely keep the community looking nice. Marge was very nice and easy to work with. I contacted her once or twice before our stay and she was pleasant and very accommodating. I had to contact her once during our stay for a question about the living room ceiling light/fan. She was extremely prompt in returning my message and offering assistance. I couldn't ask for anything more! We had a nice, relaxing stay at this condo and would recommend it without hesitation to my family and friends. In fact, we ended up liking this unit even better than the unit that we had previously stayed in, so we will definitely be staying here again in the future! Thanks, Marge, for a great vacation!"

  • SO-O-O Enjoyable!

    "My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at the Maravilla condo. It was clean, well-appointed, and the price was very reasonable. The location couldn't have been better - top floor, between two elevators with a great view of the ocean from the balcony. We were especially pleased to have a washer and dryer in the unit rather than located in a laundry area on the floor as we have had with other rentals. Another much appreciated extra was the daily beach set-up. Our chairs and umbrella were always waiting for us and the attendants were super-accommodating. The property owner was very easy to work with and responded quickly to any questions that we had. We would highly recommend this unit!"

  • Gorgeous

    "The view from the condo was AMAZING! I loved waking up every morning, walking on the balcony and taking in the stunning scenery. It was a short walk to the beach, however with two young children and all of their "stuff" the walk seemed much longer. The condo was nicely decorated and very clean. There was plenty of space for all of our things and there was even a high chair in the condo which came in very handy. The only issue we had was with the sofa sleeper. We needed it because we had 3 adults and 2 children staying in the room. My husband and I slept in the King bed in the bedroom and the children slept in the bunks. My brother was planning on sleeping in the living room on the Queen sofa sleeper, however he pulled it out the first night and after 20 minutes he put it away and slept on the couch. He said that the mattress was very thin and that he could feel the metal bar on his back. I know not to expect much of sofa sleepers because they are mainly for convenience not comfort but my brother is a 25 and can sleep pretty much anywhere, so the fact that he couldn't stand more than 20 minutes on it said a lot. We ended up having one the of the kids sleep in bed with us so that my brother could have one of the bunk beds, it wasn't the ideal arrangement but it worked for our 5 night stay. The location of the condo was great, we were a short drive away from restaurants and activities. Overall our stay was great and we would definitely recommend this condo!"
