About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6, Washer/ Dryer, Wifi, Tasteful Decor, Gulf Views

Please note we are having an issue with the balcony so unfortunately until further notice we cannot have anyone on the balcony. We hope this is resolved very quickly. This notice was sent to us by the HOA on 5/11/2017. THIS NOTICE WILL NOT BE REMOVED UNTIL THIS ISSUE IS RESOLVED. Our rate has been discounted due to this inconvenience.

We are one of the few vacation rentals that offers a virtual tour.

Be sure to look at our new 3D video that gives you a tour of your rental before you even arrive.

This one bedroom, one bath condo at the Maravilla was designed as the owners future retirement home. They are sharing their home in hopes that it could be used as a retreat for travelers to come and enjoy our wonderful island.

Recently remodeled. The decor in this beautiful condo was designed to make you feel like you truly are part of the ocean. The colors of the condo compliment the island and owners excellent taste. All was carefully selected so that the traveler can truly enjoy what the owner has created for her enjoyment. A spa like quality has also been considered when designing the accommodations.

We sleep 6 with a Queen bed in the master, a Queen sleeper sofa, and bunk beds. We do prefer to not to have 6 adults as we do not feel we are set up to accommodate 6 adults. Special exceptions can be made if an explanation is sent to the property manager when booking. We hope many families and couples can enjoy this condo.

The condo features granite counter tops, gorgeous accents in the kitchen, a beautiful tiled shower, and much more.

Our kitchen is set up to fully serve all your cooking needs. Warm up a quick bit to eat or cook a wonderful meal versus going out to eat. We love that we can offer the savings of having either a quick snack or a way to prepare a meal as part of your vacation needs.

We will only consider small pets on a case by case basis.

The Maravilla is located at the Western end of the Seawall. It is close to everything. You can enjoy the fireworks from Bands on the Sand during summer weekends as you sit on the balcony. The location is truly perfect in our opinion. We are about a quarter of a mile away from multiple beach pocket parks. The area in front of the complex is rocky. You can see the heated pool from the balcony. The Western side of the complex has 2 more gorgeous pools, a waterfall, and a hot tub. Our grounds are truly beautiful.

Winderfully detailed and exact to the description

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazingly detailed to the description. The owner is very considerate and takes it to a whole new level of hospitality... This is the best place anyone could ever stay. And after just one stay you will never want to stay ata hotel again. A great bargain for the price and felt very blessed to have found it... We are already looking forward to a future visit to this same location... You will be amazed by how much detail the owner spent to make this place a 5 star location.

Every detail is perfect in this adorable condo.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is clearly cared for by someone who thinks about what the customer really needs and might enjoy. The decor is cheerful and adorable. The little thoughtful amenities are abundant. The organization is impeccable. There are two things that we have NEVER had enough of in the places that we stay - towel hooks in the bathroom, and food storage containers. Well, this place had BOTH! There were SIX towel hooks for bath towels, and even hooks inside the shower for wash cloths!! There was an entire set of food storage containers of various sizes. The place was spotless clean!! I was VERY impressed, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Overall my stay was great! Read review

  • 3 of 5

Our experience was great the pools were amazing locations was perfect! Our condo was clean decorated perfectly for us! The only down fall was my booking I booked the condo about month and half advanced when I contacted the property owner about something completely different she told me the room I originally booked was no longer available!! And I at that point only had 2 1/2 weeks prior to vacation date! So please cofirm your booking after you book! The contact person wasn’t even willing to accommodate me at all yes she refunded but that not what I needed I booked a room if it wasn’t available it should of never showed it waS!!
