Recent Scenic Gulf Drive Central West reviews
Beautiful condo! Short walk to beach and well stocked with all the necessities.
"This condo was the perfect size for 2 adults and 2 children. It was cozy and well decorated. Had beach chairs, sand toys, boogie boards and skin boards which our girls loved!
The lack of an elevator was not at all an issue for us and we just considered it exercise! Our 3 year old even enjoyed the climb!
Would definitely stay here again. The price point was great compared to other condos. The pools were clean and in great locations. Overall a relaxing fun filled vacation. Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo!"

"We vacationed at this rental in just a couple weeks ago & I can't even begin to describe how beautiful this home was when we arrived. The owner, Peter Mitchell was very accommodating & so easy to get in touch with. This home was so comfortable & had everything we needed & so much more. It is so spacious & bright with lots of beautiful windows. There is a very well landscaped yard & plenty of parking, even a carport. We brought along our golf cart which really came in handy riding to the beach & throughout the Maravilla resort area which is so pretty. We would definitely stay here again plus it's a great area with lots of very close restaurants & a gorgeous beach with powdery white sand. After 8 days of vacationing in this magnificent home we were so sad to leave but we did make some unforgettable memories! Thanks to The Mitchell's for renting their beautiful home to our family!

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."

"Loved everything about this condo! The view was fantastic and the condo was as pictured if not better. This was probably the cleanest condo we have ever stayed in (and believe me I am particular!) There was everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. I loved sitting on the balcony in the mornings.
The pool was also very nice and it was big not like some that are small. We walked every morning on the boardwalk where we could enjoy the view while walking. We will be back
