The vacation rental was very clean.
I was very happy with the location.
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
Very impressed the proximity to the beach. We had a spectacular view from the condo. Overall a very good experience. I would highly recommend that they clean the fan/light fixture in the bedrooms, they are extremely dirty."

Awesome location close to everything you need for a beach getaway!!
"My family of five just returned from our first trip to the Destin area and our stay at Maravilla #1101. The condo was very roomy with two very large bedrooms and one much smaller bunk room. The furnishings were exactly as pictured and the condo was clean. If you are looking for high-end amenities like granite countertops and fancy decor, this won't suit you, but we found it to be quite comfortable and served our needs well. The Maravilla complex is well-kept with the front pool just a 30 second walk from the condo.We enjoyed the recently resurfaced tennis courts and only used the front pool overlooking Scenic Gulf Drive and the Gulf itself. Maravilla is centrally located within easy walking distance of four restaurants and a coffee shop. Coffee shop is a leisurely 10 minute stroll; the restaurants are closer than that. We woke up each morning and walked the beach to the coffee shop. For lunch or dinner, Captain Dave's, Kenny G's, Pompano Joe's and the Whale's Tail were all within .25-.5 miles with great local seafood and outdoor dining. Parasailing and waverunner rentals are offered on the public beach near Whale's Tail (.5 miles) although I'd encourage people to drive to Destin Harbor for parasailing at a far lower price. The beached rival anything you'd find in the Caribbean with powdery white sand and turquoise/emerald waters. We all had a blast playing in the surf with boogie boards we picked up just down the road at Alvin's Island for $15 each. A must-have! There are baskets of books in the condo so you don't even have to worry about having that beach read along. The unit is managed by Southern Vacation Rentals and the booking and check-in process with them is quite easy. They offer an app for your phone that provides all the info you need to access the unit/complex as well as discount offers for local activities. We utilized the "free adult ticket" offer on a sunset dolphin cruise in Destin and saved $26. I was less impressed with the amenities they offered--they left just 4 rolls of toilet paper for the week, two kitchen trash bags. No Kleenex or even a pad of paper/pen. The unit had a coffee maker but no coffee filters. We picked up what we needed when we were at the nearby grocery store, although I'm sure they would have provided more TP and trash bags had we called them. If you are debating about where to vacation, just book this unit! The price is great, it's roomy and it's close to everything you need!! We'll be back!!"

"Perfect week! We stayed in this owners condo on the 2nd floor over Thanksgiving, and on the 4th floor this trip. Can't ask for better location, and our kids and dog had a ball! Easy to work with, nicely furnished, not crowded with spring break kids. Can't wait to come back!"

"I just spent an amazing week in this beautiful home during my daughters spring break!! I was with a group of 9 people, 4 adults and 5 children ranging from 18 to 6, and there was plenty of space and lots of things to do. So much that I can't wait to go back to do the things I missed! The house was beautiful, clean, relaxing and the area had a very friendly atmosphere. I would recommend it to anyone interested."
