On Sept 9 Maravilla was giving a tour of its newly remodeled memory care unit and that is why we came. While there we asked if someone could give us a tour of a few Assisted Living floor plans. Jessica asked if Christine if she could show us around AL which she happily did and answered all of our questions and did not rush us.

Jessica was also involved in the meet/tour. Both my husband and I were impressed with the professionalism of both Julie and Jessica. We continue to be very interested in Maravilla. Thank You!

A silly survey. Mostly tailored on the associate. She did a good job. Could have been answered with one question.

One of the experiences that was most persuasive was the friendliness of everyone of your current residents. People we passed in the hallways; people with whom we were able to chitchat were friendly, happy, and encouraging. Clearly, their pleasure in living there is your very best advertisement.

Leslye also responded quickly to several follow up emails that I sent with questions that occured to me after the visit.

looking forward to a follow up visit. Rep let us ask all our questions, and filled in the blanks. No pressure! Facility is beautiful and you could not ask 4 more. Units are very basic with the high ceilings being the best feature. Showers with the fiberglass units are not our favorite

I really appreciate that Jessica listened to everything that would be required for my Mom to be able to make the move. She was very specific about getting me in to see what I requested. And was able to take a back seat with the details that were not imperative at this time. Jessica is really easy to work with and a real pro. I was able to meet a lot of the department managers at my first visit and they seemed genuinely interested in the residents' welfare. The residents we met were genuinely warm towards Jessica and their reviews of the facility. I was impressed that the staff seems genuinely happy and not stressed out of burdened. -- that's a good sign.

The Associate who helped us was Jessica, not the one I listed earlier when you offered only two names. Jessica was outstanding - Pleasant, courteous, and offered another visit.

Leslie was wonderful!!! So patient with my 94 yr old mother. I know we kept her past the end of her normal shift... she never balked and spent as much time with us as we needed. She is a great asset to your organization. We are still engaging in discussions with her. Loved your establishment. Thank you!

Great place, but convincing my dad is the hard part. Set against moving right now.

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

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.

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.
