very updated condo
I do not usually rate but this condo had been updated very nice. It wasn't too far to the beach and it was close to both pools. We usually go to different places every year but this is one place I would visit again.
Owners were awesome to deal with. Located in the Maravilla condo community, this condo had a very nice modern decor throughout. Check-in process was - wait...there was no check-in process. We were provided with our access code for the week, and went direct to the condo upon arrival...zero inconvenience to their guests. Will definitely return...
Family Friendly and Cozy Condo
Condo was nicely updated & tastefully decorated. Upon arrival thing Appeared Mostly clean (some dog hair and surface dust on furniture)& in working order. Kitchen is nicely stocked, we were able to prepare a few dinners in the condo. Plenty of bath towels. family of 5 &there was plenty of toilet paper &paper towels for the week. Beds were moderately comfortable, linens had some dog hair on them, this didn’t bother us,we knew we were renting a dog friendly condo. Issues we ran into: tv in the bunk room to work, the screen stayed black. Screen door in need of repair, Strange brown splatter on the bedskirt in the master bedroom. dust, old dog toys &lots of dog hair under beds. Cleaning crew should be doing a more thorough cleaning esp. since you allow dogs. Need a small chest of drawers in bunk room- no where to put clothes. Chair set up: it is awesome this condo offers 2 setups, most only provide 1. In the past I have stayed at the Maravilla numerous times and have found the “chair guys” to be very friendly &on top of things. This week we were not so lucky. The first few days we went out we gave the guy our room number &name. He sent us straight out from their chair: We asked if we could reserve the same spot for the next day &they said no, they were first come first serve. One day we didn’t go to the beach. The next day we were told they were out of 4 chair setups. He told us to wait while they set something up for us. He then seated someone. Then he started walking back &before he got back to where we were standing he approached a group of teen girls &got them seated which I thought was rude to make us wait longer, we had 3 kids with us who were eager to get to the beach. Our last day we made sure we came down early so they didn’t run out again and asked if we could have the same set up straight out we had a few days ago. We were told no because it was in the owners section. Made no sense because we had used it before. Then asked about another setup &told it was reserved (no one had their stuff set up there like it was being used, it had a little sign on it). Confusing when we were told it was first come first serve and could not reserve. This was all incredibly frustrating. We always generously tip them, this week we didn’t at all. Over all we really enjoyed our stay in unit 1310. It was a little chilly but the sun was out and the ocean was calm. We would recommend this unit to families with kids and dogs and would stay in this unit again.
I am so glad that you enjoyed the condo and all of the upgrades. I wish that you had called about the cleaning issues while you were here and I would have sent our housekeeper back. This was a new housekeeper and her first day on the job after a military family evacuating from Tyndall Air Force Base with a very hairy pet had left from a 2 month stay. We have instructed her on being more thorough in her cleaning.
The beach service is the same group that has been there for years but they also have new team members from time to time. I will pass your comments on to the management of the beach service so that they can address your concerns. Thank you for being our guests.
Our stay was amazing the house was perfect and so was the weather
Private and quiet
Overall we enjoyed our stay at Maravilla Cottage 40. The house is located on a cul de sac. Backyard is private and dog friendly. House is about 1/2 mile from beach. We rented a golf cart during our stay and it was nice to drive that to the front of community and walk to beach. The big screen tvs were nice. An abundance of towels and wash cloths were provided for our week stay. The four star rating is due to the small shower in master bath and the floors were sandy when we arrived. However, all considering, we enjoyed the house and would stay there again.
It was very clean and very roomie it met all of our expectations.Will definitely return.
