"We had a great time during our stay. The condo was very nice and comfortable with easy access to the beach. It is close to several restaurants and a very good location. I would recommend this place to anyone who is interested."

This was our first multi-family vacation. This home had plenty of room for 5 adults and 7 children. This home is less than a block from the beach. The private pavilion was an excellent addition to our stay. The house had plenty of games for the kids to play and beach floats, noodles, shovels, and wagons. Everyone in the home took advantage of the 2nd floor balcony hammock.
On our first night, the A/C would not work. We called the front office and she said she would send someone around. No one came to check or fix the A/C unit. We called back numerous times that night because the heat on the first floor was unbearable. The next morning, we had to call the management again and around 12 noon an A/C maintenance man arrived and fixed the air. The first night was quite uncomfortable.
The water pressure in the home is very low. We had to run the dishwasher numerous times on one load. We had to run the dryer 5 times to dry one set of towels. Also, we had planned to grill on vacation because patio grill was listed as an amenity but in order to use the grill you have to pay an extra 35.00 for someone to come clean it when you leave.
By far our families number 1 complaint/con, is that our last night together as a family we were not able to go out to dinner or do any other activity because we had to meet the "CLEANING" mandates that were set for us. We spent all of Friday evening trying sweep all floors, wash all towels, put the trash out, wash and put up all dishes. It was a lot of stress for us on the last night of our vacation to make sure we were not charged an extra $100 dollars an hour. For the price that we paid to stay for a week, you would think that a "cleaning" service would be provided. "Cleaning" is also listed as an amenity but be prepared to spend your last night meeting all the requirements for check out. This was by far the worst part of our stay.
Overall, we had a wonderful time in Destin and this house met most of our needs. We probably will not book this home again. We will be looking for homes that provide a full cleaning service. You live and you learn."

"We had a great time in Destin and our condo fit our needs perfectly ! The owner was very nice and responded right away to any questions I had. Private maravilla beach was awesome! Beach chairs and umbrella also awesome! Loved that the condo was on the ground floor . Made hauling our beach stuff in and out super convenient. Recommend for anyone with kids as it looked like we lived at Alvins Island by the time we had enough beach junk for everyone 😂 Great trip and a great stay!"
