Awesome Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I've been meaning to get a review done on this unit for awhile, sorry to be late. First off, I do want to say that I was a little nervous going into this due to some bad reviews, but we were so happy with our stay at Maravilla!! Rebecca, the manager, was a pleasure to deal with, and she seemed to try and help out with anything we needed.

So,the condo itself,was very clean, comfortable and pretty much as it is portrayed in the pictures. It is by no means newly updated, but it wasn't portrayed that way either. We had everything we needed to have a great visit!! The beach is extremely close, the pools are awesome and the hot tubs are hot. Our bed was a king size and very comfortable, I was told the (by my guests) that the queen size bed was also comfortable, and the kitchen was well equipped.

Maravilla itself, is a wonderful place, the grounds are kept very nice, my experience with the people were very positive, and it is a very dog friendly place. This area is close to lots of really nice restaurants, bars, coffee shop, and every where you turn a gorgeous view. Some of our favorite times were just taking our dog for a walk as the gorgeous ocean is your view. We went in the winter and perhaps the rules are different in winter, but our dog was welcome at so many restaurant patios in this area and all of Destin.

Good Last minute booking

  • 3 of 5

Other than being outdated and needing a little TLC ( Tender Loving Care ) this place was everything our gang needed. Great Location !

and a place to shower and sleep . It does have new carpet but the dishes are VERY limited as well as cooking utensils Like I said some TLC and about $500 spent at a Home Décor and Kitchen store and this place would be perfect. Minor Maintenance issues that should be kept up with better but expected in a rental ! Great Beach ! Great Location ! Great Access ! Our agent Rebecca was and is an ASSET to this UNIT ! She is attentive and easily accessed when needed and a PLEASURE to speak and deal with ! GREAT JOB REBECCA !!!!!!! P.S. Wifi was very weak

The stay was a nightmare from the beginning. Upon arrival the elevators smelled like urine and super hot. Then ad we enter this unit we find AC not working properly took Two days to try to get to a minimum range of comfort, air in first room is minimum you will be hot in there. We could not use patio due to broken door, rust in microwave, rusted shower rods, shower heads that don't spray right, the main entry door is hard as hell to open you must use two hands to open, dryer door hard to close, living room celing fan hardware falling, beds not right size as listed, view on website does not exist, furniture is worn and dated, and carpet smells. You ask for owners info to contact them that your not happy and the realtor Rebecca will not give it, but I'm sure if you view tax info on unit on public website you could find out. There was no offering of any discount for all the problems we encountered nor was there any apology just excuses. We rented this condo along with two other units on this property for a family gathering and all three units had some sort of issue. We will not be wasting any more money or time here. Renter's beware, and yes I have pictures of most of the issues in this condo as proof. Also everything sounds pet friendly, but your animals are not welcome near beaches if your an out of state resident. We will now from here on be spending money at Panama City where pets are welcome.

Owner's Response: Maravilla is one of the top rental properties in the Miramar Beach area of Destin, and there are numerous repeat renters, so that puts that to rest.....As for the A/C not working, that is a falsehood, it just wasn't blowing as hard as renter thought it should. Renter waits until almost 10pm to send a text to tell me that A/C is not blowing air. Technician was sent over within 30 minutes of complaint. Tech stated that the flow was not as strong in the front room as it should be, but that it would have to wait until morning for him to fix it. It would take up to (3) hours to get it working properly. Tech was there first thing in the morning. It did NOT take (2) days to get fixed, not even 24 hours. Bed in second room measures 60" x 80". That is a QUEEN size bed. Not sure if renter doesn't know how to measure or if he's confusing a queen with a king. New furniture and new carpet put in the unit just 10 months ago. Handle on patio door is broken, but the handle is special order and takes (2) weeks to get in. You could still open the door unless you have no motor skills at all. What management company gives out owner information????? That's what management companies do, they manage. If the owner were to handle all renters, then they would be management. Pet friendly means pets are allowed, nothing more. Renter should have done more research before booking. It is common knowledge here that only residents with permits can take their dogs on the beach.

Enjoyed our stay!!!!

  • 4 of 5

I can't sing Rebecca's praises enough! We had a few very very minor issues with our room (coffee maker was not working properly and we were missing dish towels) but as soon as I notified her of this she came out ASAP with a new coffee pot and new towels! All questions I asked before we booked she answered right away. I highly recommend this condo. Very comfortable and just to deal with Rebecca Henson: she makes everything easier. Overall the room is close enough to the pool and beach even though it is one of the furthest away from both in the complex. We intend to book here again. We had a wonderful time and look forward to returning! Only reason it's not a 5 star is due to a few issues that maintenance had parts ordered for but had not yet come in. Also the wifi was not working. Otherwise it was great! Comfortable beds and room overall was very nice.

BEWARE!!!! Rip offs....unit NOT as described!!!! NO REFUND!!!

  • 1 of 5


★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Condo said 15 feet from elevator so that was main reason to book. However the elevator is REALLY about 300 feet but ok not so bad BUT that elevator DID NOT WORK!!! My mom is handicapped and the next closest elevator was like 800 feet! I book this condo last minute at 10am the day of arrival and was told condo would be ready at 4pm. At 4pm me and my mom got there went in an condo was still dirty from previous guest and smelled STRONG of pet urine!!! I called and asked for a full refund because mainly of the elevator then of course as promised to be ready at 4 did not happen. I had this condo booked for SIX HOURS and because I did not give a 30 day cancel notice I was told no refund! I told her I had just booked the condo spur of the moment that morning at 10am. How could I give a 30 day notice????? Also told her it was 4:20 and the cleaning lady just entered and the condo smelled strong of urine. She said the lady would fix that BUT the unit was promised by 4pm. When I brought the elevator up she said that was not her problem that the one closest to condo did not work. I explained to her about my handicap mom and she said sorry no refund! She then said she would talk to the owners. I asked for owners phone number and she would not give me the owners contact info. So as stated in the "over review" condo within 15 feet of elevator is FALSE! It's within about 300 feet but out of order!! Check in time was 4 and condo was not cleaned until 5. So the cleaning lady CLEANED a 2 bedroom 2 bath condo in 40 mins that smelled strong of urine. Three days the rental lady Becky said the owners said no refund!!!! So I was took for my money and never spent over 10 minutes in the condo!!! BEWARE these people falsely describe the unit and are NOT prompt of check in time! And will NOT give you the owners contact info!!! Please don't be a victim as I have been!!!! The rental manager handles other condos as well so take note on the name of the rental company that's handling this condo!!!!

Owner's Response: Normally I would never respond to such a ridiculous person, but in this instance, I am going to make an exception......This individual, booked this unit, an entire day in advance. When she booked, she was told that there was a (30) cancellation period and that if she cancelled she would forfeit her full payment. She agreed to the terms. If you are a VRBO renter, you know full well that by booking using a credit card, you agree to all terms/rules and regulations. Please keep in mind, that this person had been staying at this property, for a week prior to booking this unit. She was fully aware that there was construction going on at the property. She arrived at the unit well before check-in and went into the unit without permission. Her confirmation stated that she was not to enter until 4pm CST. She then emailed me and asked me if the elevator outside the door was functional. I emailed back that I did not believe it was, and that there was another in use at the end of the walkway. At no point, during the reservation process, did she state that her reservation was contingent on the elevator directly outside the door being functional. My maintenance man, who was in the unit at the time she entered, asked her if she had been given permission to enter early and she lied to him and told him that I had given the ok. He then left the unit, called me and asked me if that were true, which of course, it wasn't. He then went back, a little irritated that she had lied to him and told her that cleaning would not come in while she was there due to liability issues. The cleaning crew, who were in the parking lot, were waiting for her to leave. She told my maintenance man that she already had another unit and was leaving. This all before check-in time! She is just angry because she could not get a refund, after she'd already found a unit closer to the front, and now she's try to get even, by making up lies. It shows her true character, a liar. She should be ashamed.
