Sweet retreat on the beach!
"We loved the condo. The location could not be better. In our opinion, this is the best area in Destin. This condo is in like new condition. Perfect vacation spot! Pet friendly too. We enjoyed the fact that many in this complex had their pets with them."

"I booked the Bella Vita vacation home a few weeks ago and was thoroughly impressed! I was visiting Destin for the first time for my wedding. We had about 18 people in the home and had plenty of space. We were so much closer to the beach than I thought, I could see it from the master window. We called about needing more towels and Carrie brought them right over and even stayed and talked awhile with my family about fun things to do in the area...she was awesome! The only complaints were plumbing the 2nd floor toilets kept backing up (nothing a plunger couldn't fix though) as well as no closet space for the people in the bunk room. Neither complaint took away from the beauty or experience at the home! I am a Texas native and solely went off these reviews as well as pictures and I am satisfied! My wedding party enjoyed their stay and Destin was the perfect place for my beach/gulfarium wedding!! Thank you Beach Reunion I look forward to booking with you next year for our family vacation!"

The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was clean.
I was more than happy with the location.
I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
The resort is located in a perfect spot, but the "private" beach access is a bit of a walk. The beach access is posted as private for a group of 4 resorts only, but it is not secure and I assume other people use it who aren't staying there. Also, an outdoor shower or hose at the beach access gate would be awesome for when leaving to walk back to the resort. There are two at the pool and we used those when getting back from the beach daily. The pool was very nice and fun, too! The condo was super cute and cozy. It could use some more kitchen equipment, like a baking sheet or pan for the oven, but had most everything needed. The condo wasn't as clean when we arrived as I expected, but was ok and the linens were fresh. The check-in/check-out process was incredibly easy with the Destin Palms app. Overall we had a great time and would consider the resort & condo unit again. Thank you!!!"

"We looked at many different units in Maravilla but this unit really stood out to us. The condo was up to date with nice furniture and the comforts of home. There were 7 of us and we all slept comfortably. It was so nice to have good laundry machines in the unit so we were able to a load daily and I didn't have tons of laundry to do when I returned home.
The pools were nice and we really enjoyed our time on the beach with the chairs and umbrella already set up and ready to go for us. We had great food and my kids loved the ice cream truck as they made their around the different homes in the area.
Would definitely look at renting this unit again!"
