Great property. Beach access is close to home. House is located close to both pools in Maravilla. Owner was easy to get hold of and quick to respond.
Not as described.
Very disappointing stay and very overpriced for what the property was advertised as. The home is in need of multiple repairs for example, doors off in several bedrooms, holes in the ceiling and walls, trim missing, door handles in balcony doors off one you could not open at all and the main one from the living room was off so if you went outside you had to put your hands on the glass and push to get back in. Kitchen faucet fell off at one point. The floors were so dirty and gritty from the moment we walked in and the sofas were covered in sand.
Then there was the kitchen! There was not even salt and pepper to cook with. If you are planning on cooking a meal make sure you bring ever single thing you need. We had 1 very small roll of paper towels to last the entire stay, I kitchen towel and wash cloth, no sponge or brush for dishes and 1 trash bag for trash! The pans were completely trashed and everything stuck so badly it was almost impossible to make scrambled eggs.
The bathroom towel holder was off and the entire house had 3 rolls of toilet paper and the main baths was only a half roll!
The house had absolutely nothing nothing to clean the floors or countertops with and the frigerator had spilled milk and grime from previous stays.
I would not even consider paying the amount we did for 4 nights here again and we were looking for something to come back to on a regular basis. I can guarantee that it will not be this home. If I was staying in a hotel in this condition I would expect some kind of compensation!
I am so sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your stay. Your the first family in over a year that we've been renting our home to great families, that we have not lived up to expectations. I'm sure others can see our other reviews and nice comments. We tell all our guests BEFORE there arrival, that if theres anything they need, we are just a phone call away. We personally live only a mile from the home. We also personally inspect our home during and after the previous guests check out.
We know for a fact because we see it, that our floors have been mopped, bathrooms sanitized, all beds cleaned and made, furniture dusted, all appliances cleaned inside and out, and so much more.
We are like 99% of the vacation rental homes in Destin. We do not provide salt and pepper, or condiments, for health cross contamination reasons. We provide starter packs of items such as Toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, dish soap, etc. They are not intended to get you thru your entire stay. They are there so that you don't immediately have to go to the store. We are not a hotel.
Maintainence wise, yes, there was a small drywall hole in the garage area, from a previous guest. Yes we could not get a drywall repair there in time. Did it ruin there vacation? We do have bifold doors on the closets, the closets are open. There are not bedroom doors off.
Did these guests ever call during there stay to report any issues they were having? Absolutely not. If they had, any item would have immediately been addressed. That's just how we do business.
I'm sure if you read more into there comments, you'll know why they tried to write what they did.
To our future guests, please know that we are here to take care of you!
Beautiful home in a beautiful location
Our family has been going on beach vacation for 30 years. The stay in this beautiful home had to be our favorite place to stay. Highly recommend this house for the location & how well the owners obviously want each person to enjoy everything about their vacation.
We had a great time! A few problems arose, Kevin was always available to assist. Thanks!
Great location. Good food within walking distance, Publix delivers groceries, never have to leave beach. No issues with home, laid out great, first floor really nice for kids. Owner very prompt to respond to inquiries. Would stay here again. ? I
This was a beautiful home with a wonderful view and location.
The house had a great layout. We loved the bedroom options especially the large bunk room. The owners were very quick to respond to any questions we had. Wish we could have stayed longer!
