Maravilla house description

Begin your day with a bike ride along the beach at sunrise. The wind in your hair, you stop for a cup of coffee to watch the sun slowly rise out of the east and the pelicans on the gulf. The fishermen on the beach give you ideas for casting a line tomorrow in the early hours of daybreak .

Riding home you catch a glimpse of dolphins playing off shore and are ready to roll the kids down in the wagon to share this idyllic surf and sand and bring home a few shells from the crystal white beach. Rafts, buckets, beach chairs, umbrella, it's all here for you to relax and enjoy all that “A Beachin Cottage’” has to offer.

Maybe it’s just you and your spouse, special someone, or a girl's weekend at the beach, read the morning paper on the front porch or watch the birds play from the privacy of our back patio.

“A Beachin' Cottage” is our cozy, well-equipped, three-bedroom beach cottage in the Maravilla community of Destin, Florida. Just a short 5 minute walk to the beach, pool, tennis courts, shuffleboard, or fitness center this private single-family cottage, on a private lot with a fabulous quiet backyard, has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a comfortable family room and a large chef's equipped kitchen. Washer and dryer, dining room, high speed Internet and two car garage are just a few of the additional amenities.

Ceiling fans, colorful rooms, and beautiful new tile floors. 'A Beachin' Cottage takes comfort to a new level. Pillow top king beds in two bedrooms so you have two masters, and a twin, full bunk bed for the kids. Also included is a queen sized sleeper in the family room for those nights when you need just a little more room for your guests.

For those days that you decide a good book fits your schedule we have a complete library of books, tapes and games to fill the agenda. Cable is available along with a Sega Game Gear, several DVD players and full stereo. If you have to spend an hour or so working while on vacation you will have wireless Internet available. And of course who could forget the shopping, fishing, golf, and dining in Destin! A par 3 executive golf course is just across the street, along with many other par 72 courses within minutes of our home. Plus we are just minutes from Destin Commons and Silver Sands Outlet Mall.

We know you will love Destin as much as we do.
