About Veronica Caldwell

I love this family friendly complex and would like to share it with you. Just the smell of the fresh salt air and the beauty of the Gulf of Mexico, not to mention the seafood. So relaxing! A place to get away from it all. Everything is so convenient and nearby, yet so far away.

Veronica Caldwell purchased this condo in 2004

Why Veronica Caldwell chose Maravilla Resort

Maravilla is family friendly, gated community. You can sit on the patio while the kids are playing on the grassy knoll or head out the front door to the pool, hot tub, tennis courts, clubhouse. So close to everything.

What makes this condo unique

I love going up to the private access beach and having my beach chair & umbrella set up for me by the beach attendant. Maravilla's own 500 ft beach is uncrowded and the sand is crystal white. Then at the end of the day take a dip in the pool and relax in the hot tub. Maybe even having a Margarita!

Our excellent vacation

  • 5 of 5

I am sorry that we are writing this review this late. But after checking the dates for our vacation this year we read the negative reviews. We would like to state that this was the first stay in a condo. This condo was excellent. This condo fulfilled our needs. It was very clean , very comfortable. It has a great pool , hot tub and walking distance from the beach. No it is not like home but it is very nice. It was decorated very nice. It was great to be able to do laundry,not to bring dirty clothes home. And the price was excellent, we booked at the last minute. Our grown children messed up our plans and we waited to long to book our hotel we usually stay in which is the ramada in ft Walton beach... At 200.00 dollars a nite.. What a saving to find this place. Thank you Veronica for a excellent place to day. We will be back this year and many more to come...

Owner's Response: Thank you for responding to the negative review. I really thought it was quite unfair. Just wanted you to also know that I have replaced the microwave, stove and also added a full size stacked front loader/dryer. We strive every year to replace or update from positive feedback. Also in addition to the great rates, I give my returning guests a discount so I hope you will come back for many years as so many before you have done. Maravilla is a great vacation destination! Thank you again.

Outdated Condo

  • 1 of 5

This condo is very outdated, all of the appliances except for the refrigerator need to be replaced. The bedroom comforter was so old and "dirty" we wouldn't even consider using it. The bedroom has one open closet with only a clothes rod, no place to put your suitcases etc. Patio furniture was a cheap plastic table and chairs, table fell apart when we touched it. Patio tiles were filthy, hadn't been scrubbed in months. Micro wave, toaster and stove were rusted, didn't even want to cook in them along with some of the utensils.

I like a condo to be "at least" clean, this one wasn't, when I wrote the owner, she said the things I mentioned were to re replaced during the "deep cleaning" fall maintenance. Also said that the patio furniture was "it is what it is". This didn't do me any good, other renters were bragging how good their condos looked and how up to date they were, we had what we had, the worst one in all of the buildings.

I do not recommend this property for anyone, even after the deep cleaning.

Owner's Response: The negatives: Complaint about the microwave which is slightly rusted on the door only. The inside is fine. This microwave was replaced in 2009. 5 years is not old for a microwave and I don't know how it got these little rust spots but I told them I would replace it this fall. There is one clothes closet for the 1 bedroom and it is about 6 feet long. Suitcases go on the floor or there is plenty of room also in the bedroom. The spread get commercially cleaned twice a year. The patio table is plastic as anything other than plastic will rust from the salt air. Everyone has the same plastic tables for that reason or they have no table. The legs are made to come off so it can be flattened in case of needing to bring in during storms. One can just push the leg back in. The tiles were put there by the condo association and they are responsible for them. I have tried to clean them but they have a grit on them to prevent slipping and the road tar rubs off. And it is outside isn't it. Positives: The refrigerator and dishwasher were replaced in 2011. I am replacing the microwave, stove and also the washer/dryer this fall. I already have a new comforter scheduled to go on. The sofa sleeper and love seat are about 2 years old. There is a new flat screen in the living room and a new one for the bedroom will be going in this fall. Yikes some people just like to hear themselves complain I guess!! I give a rebate for my returning guests in appreciation and have many returning guests. They will not be offered this rebate and they will not be coming back.

Pictures can be deceiving.

  • 1 of 5

My family and myself have been to Destin several times in the past few years, always renting a house or condo. Out of all of our visits, this place being by far the worst. Cleanliness is the most important factor, then comfort. We had hair in our bed on top of the sheets. Hair on the floor. The towels were dingy, old, and torn. The bath mat was dirty when I first opened it. And there was an odor throughout the condo that smelled of urine. We had to buy air freshener on our first outing.

Next, comfort. The master king bed had an uneven mattress. My husband slept in a hole the first night. From then on, we tried to both sleep on one side of the bed. My children are older so they did not sleep on the bunk beds, but instead slept on the pull-out in the living room. The pull-out mattress was hardly a mattress at all. It was so thin and worn. The mattress protector was yellow and thin. Most uncomfortable. Also, the blankets and bedspreads are not cleaned for the next occupant. We were instructed to fold them up and put them back in the closet before our departure.

I'm very sorry to say, I would not go back to this particular condo on my next visit, nor would I recommend it to anyone.

Owner's Response: I was really surprised to receive such a negative review after all the 5 star reviews I have received in the past. This owner never contacted the housekeepers (they were given their number on their arrival sheet) nor did they contact me. The housekeepers have been with me a long time and really try to please the renters and will come back if needed. I also cannot correct the problem if they do not contact me. I did come down to Destin mid week and went over to the condo on the Saturday after they left. The condo was clean but when I went to change the air conditioner filter I noticed a dust pan with dirt & garbage on it in the closet. I don't think the housekeepers would do that so it leaves me to believe that this renter did this to be dirty and mean. Also when renters are bringing 4 adults as this renter did, I advise them that the bunks are for under 16 and the sleeper sofa (which is only 2 years old) is notoriously uncomfortable for 2 adults (more for children or one adult). So they new that coming in. I cannot imaging using the blankets in the heat of the summer but think they just needed to complain. Also I do not know of anyone who cleans the bedspread after each visitor (even hotels) but they do get cleaned twice a year. Maybe she should look into a high end hotel but she won't be able to rent that for $100/night. I do try to accomodate my guests and have many repeaters as evidenced by the reviews.

Most Reasonable Rates Around!

  • 5 of 5

This was not our first trip to Destin, but it was our first time staying at Maravilla. Being a parent of 2 young children, I loved the security of the gated access. The double entrances made it so convenient to enter from the beach road or the main road, if you were out shopping/sightseeing/dining. I absolutely loved it being on the first floor-so easy to transport luggage and groceries inside. The entrance is directly across from the elevator, so you sometimes had to wait for people to get on/off, but that didn't bother us in the least. The master bedroom is right next to the elevator, but I never heard anyone during the night even though I'm a very light sleeper. The location of the condo to the beach was great-only a very short walk. It was also a very short walk to the rear pool, and we loved that! I would recommend the rear pool to people with small children or those who like a more subdued atmosphere. The pool on the beach side was always very crowded and noisy. My main complaint is the master bed. The mattress is very hard, and the sheets had not been washed. Ladies' makeup was very visible. I had detergent & bleach, so the problem was fixed quickly. The dryer's lint screen cover broke on our 2nd day, but the owner had it replaced within a matter of an hour or so; I was amazed and very grateful! When we were getting ready to leave that morning, we heard a knock on the door. Before we could even turn around, the cleaning lady opened the door on us. She asked when we were leaving, so I told her in about an hour, and this was between 8:30 and 9:00 A.M. We didn't care for that, but not really a big deal. The condo is the perfect size for a family and the location is wonderful. I would highly recommend it and plan to stay with this owner, and probably the same unit, in the future! Thanks for a wonderful week away, Veronica!

Second Time Around

  • 5 of 5

This the second time for my wife and I to stay in this rental unit. It did not disappoint us two years after the first. We feel it is a great value for your vacation dollar. First flr. unit, easy parking, and easy walk to the beach. No lugging of chairs, umbrellas, etc. to the sandy white beaches of Destin. Great line of communications with owner. We'll be back!
