I am investigating ahead for plans in 4 to 6 years. I will probably check with Leslye early in January 2019 about a possible visit for perhaps 5 days at MIRAVILLA ; She had mentioned the possibility of a complimentary couple of days stay on site and add’l days at a reasonable rate per day ( I believe she said approximately $160 per night). That would afford me an opportunity to meet residents and see 1st hand what daily life might be like at MARAVILLA.

I found the tan paint very depressing & think the decor needs updating. Overall seems like a very nice community.

A big "Thank You" to both Leslye Leiter and resident Chip Milne for their time, interest, and information.

some of the units we visited could certainly benefit from an upgrade/update

Great facility

This is it was made while I was in town from my home in South Orange County -- I will follow up with further visits when I am in town again if I am still interested. The community is definitely a possibility for me, and I will be in touch again.

This was a two night visit during which we interfaced with several residents and experienced the chance to sight several accommodates that met our anticipated needs. We were much pleased on all accounts.

Don did a fantastic job and was very pleasant and thoughtful .

Every one was very nice and helpful.

We would like to see a more flexible food plan that would allow us to only use the on-site service for fewer days a month.

Leslie was very helpful but we had to change plans on our stay due to family. I had been in contact with her on the phone and email and she provided information that was extremely helpful. I will probably contact her again for more information. The food and service was extremely good and the facility is beautiful. We were lucky to be able to talk to residents that seemed to be very happy there. Overall we had a very good impression. I had searched for communities that were similar for my parents and this was far above average. Thank you. Will be in contact. Becky Heryford

Very impressed with staff and facility. We have decided when we are ready Maravilla will be our final home.

I loved what I saw at Maravilla. My parent, unfortunately, does not want to leave her current house, so I am not currently certain what will happen going forward or if she will move into Maravilla, but it seems like a wonderful place, and Leslie was very helpful and courteous.

I have visited about 12 places and you list of activities is far better than any thing I have seen. The facility is very lovely.

We really liked the community but are uncertain about the location. But of the communities we have visited Maravilla is pretty close to the top if not at the top.

The General Manager/Director Ruth Grande Introduced herself and participated in the tour. This was very unexpected and much appreciated.

this is my first time searching for senior living. i was not prepared and so did not have a lot of questions, so the visit was short. while walking from the parking lot to the visitor center, i was lost and went around a bit. the place is really nice and service people are very courteous and friendly.

We were most impressed with the sense of community that we encountered and the beautiful setting of Maryville.

Don was a wealth of information and enjoyed meeting him. An observation was that he walked very fast (much faster than my 88 year old father). Better to saunter with the buyer than walk ahead. Also, I suggested the option of riding in a electric golf card to get to father independent living areas. (even though I understand it is important for members to walk...). Also, upon greeting, it would be nice to be offered something to drink (coffee/water..), the front desk make the person feel comfortable and welcome (maybe start a convo and let them know that they are happy they are at Maravilla). My father was very hesitant to go...

We found everything about Maravilla to be pleasant and inviting. Friendly people and beautiful surroundings.

Very positive experience and a very nice lunch. Enjoyed it!
Sep 3, 2017
Don was generous in taking us all over the campus, and he answered all our questions. We really enjoyed the lunch after the tour.
Jul 25, 2017
Financial info is a little confusing and will call with questions
Jul 16, 2017
Lunch was wonderful Staff was friendly and attentive Many residents approached us to tell us how wonderful they think Maravilla is
Jul 14, 2017
Enjoyed meeting with both Andrea and Judy!

The name of the associate who gave our tour is not listed in the survey options. His name was Don.
Jun 30, 2017
I was there for lunch only with Andrea Katz, as a social experience. It was wonderful, warm and open.
Jun 30, 2017
Where my answers are "agree" rather than "strongly agree," it is because the question does not reflect the particular circumstances of my visit. For example, I had described myself and what I was looking for to the associate in correspondence with her prior to my visit. I believe she "read" my personality very accurately and responded to me in a completely appropriate and effective fashion.

We enjoyed our time with Andrea. She gave us information and answered our questions. We saw several of the residences, which were very attractive. Andrea clearly is involved with the life of the community and greeted people by name and with a smile. They responded in kind. We spoke with some of the residents who were very enthusiastic about living at Maravilla. The grounds were well-maintained and especially beautiful this time of year.

Andrea is very thoughtful and helpful.

Andrea Katz is so warm and welcoming. She is your greatest asset.
Apr 10, 2017
As a result of my visit, I committed to an apartment.
Mar 24, 2017
This visit was designed to be very brief, to share Maravilla with our out-of-town friend and pick up an info packet. We have previously spent much time with Andrea. Receptionist Monica is SO friendly, too!
Mar 14, 2017
We look forward to a follow-up visit with Andrea in the very near future. This is a special place!
Mar 11, 2017
Andrea was very patient and accommodating. My parents were very impressed with Maravilla and would move in immediately if finances weren't a factor. Maravilla is our first choice, again, providing that we can make the finances work.
Mar 10, 2017
We were very favorably impressed with Maravilla, and consider it to be our first choice if we were to decide on a community in Santa Barbara. We live most of the year in Pennsylvania, so the outcome of this visit is still under consideration.
Mar 7, 2017
We were strongly impressed with the history and programs at Maravilla.
Feb 25, 2017
Enjoyed our visit. The facilities are very nice.
Feb 25, 2017
thought most of y your questions very generic and a waste of my time. YOUR QUESTIONNAIRE TOO LABORIOUS IN THE WAY IT WAS LAID OUT. I enjoyed my time with Ms Katz and learned a lot, not only about Maravilla but about myself and my future possibilities.
Jan 19, 2017
Ms. Katz was polite, professional and responsive. However, aside from the common areas, some of the apartments looked rather dated with old formica countertops, flimsy window treatments etc. Additionally, 2017 pricing was not yet available even though we are beyond the middle of January, 2017. Hmm?
Jan 10, 2017
This facility is such a great place they have so many different levels for all people and the staff is wonderful and the food is great no complaints!!
Jan 10, 2014
You cannot imagine how wonderful Maravilla is. The staff is unbelievable, the condo/apartment layout is so well thought out. I would and do tell everyone that the little bit of extra money you have to pay is so, so, so, so worth it. I could bore you for hours about how wonderful Maravilla is.
