Maravilla condo description

Welcome to Paradise! Destin, Florida, is located in the Northwest Panhandle and home to the most beautiful beaches on The Emerald Gulf Coast. Located within close proximity to both NWFL Regional Airport in Ft. Walton and the NWFL Beaches International Airport located near Panama City, Maravilla is the most popular family-oriented resort in Destin. We are a gated community with a large interior parking lot that includes a portico for loading/unloading, as well as 2 tennis courts, basketball court, shuffleboard, two pools (1 heated for fall/winter vacationing), hot tub, workout facility and bike racks. In addition, there is a clubhouse available for rental for your private parties or gatherings. There is plenty of green space for the children to run and play safely, as well as a pet potty area, and most importantly, we have a 2.5 acre private beach which is the largest private beach in the area. For large groups, if rented far enough in advance, the condo next door also sleeps 8 & so could be rented simultaneously to enjoy the close proximity. Check out vrbo.com/66122.
Our 3 bedroom unit has the largest floor plan available. It has recently been professionally decorated with a Tuscan-Style Décor, fully tiled & ready for you, your friends, your kids or small pet to enjoy. It is open and airy and has a 40 ft. balcony located off the Living Area as well as off the Master Suite. We offer 4 beach chairs & 2 umbrellas FREE per day during busy season for your enjoyment, as well as cable & wifi.

The fully-equipped kitchen has cherry cabinets, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and ceramic tile floor. The coffee maker and blender will come in handy for hot and cold beverages and there is plenty of plates/bowls, silverware, glasses, pots/pans and cooking utensils so you don’t need to bring a thing! There is a washer/dryer and iron/ironing board for your convenience.

There are two Master Suites both with a King Size bed, HDTV flat screen, DVD and private full bath. We provide custom drapery with black out liners for those that prefer to sleep in.

The bunkroom is a perfect space for the children to unwind from a day at the beach watching a movie or reading a book on the twin bunk beds, although the extra thick mattresses accommodate most adults easily and comfortably.

The Living Area has a sofa that will provide additional sleep space for two, if need be. The HDTV Flat screen and DVD is great for keeping up with all the sporting events, movies and news stories that you seem to miss at home. In addition, we also provide WiFi Internet Service for your computer/tablet/etc.

Of course, sitting on the balcony having your morning coffee and reading the paper or enjoying a cold beverage after a fun day in the sun enjoying the view, is always paradise as you smell the fresh sea air!

Lastly, during high season (March – October), we provide you with 4 beach chairs and and 2 umbrellas for your pleasure. We have the best beach service manager in Destin and he will make sure your stay is pleasurable. Our third floor unit is near the corner of Building One so is just steps away from sugar white beaches where you can see your toes in the emerald green waters and enjoy the smell of the sea. Just steps away are miles of sidewalk that parallel the beach for great views while exercising. Several on-the-beach restaurants are within walking distance awaiting your visit for extra fun.

LIFE IS GOOD….WELCOME TO PARADISE!!!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: John & I live in Huntsville, Alabama, where he grew up, while I grew up in North Georgia near Rome. For you Atlanta folks, my side of the family primarily lives there in Atlanta. For you Texans, John's family lives in North Dallas. For you Carolina folk, my grandparents were from there, while for you northerners, John's extended family lives in Wisconsin. I guess it's just a small world. :)

              Why the Owner Chose Maravilla:
              My sister owns the condo right next door; how awesome is that?! Also, I told the previous owner that when she had it professionally decorated recently, it was 'as if she decorated it for us', as we love the Tuscan decor. The view got us, too; step out on the patio & the gorgeous view weaves its magic. Not all condos have a beach view! If you were to get too much sun, you could still enjoy the beach from the patio while enjoying a good book or cold beverage. Our condo is very near the corner of our building nearest the beach, so much so that if you open the patio door you can hear the waves. It also gets the morning sun, which you can enjoy before you hit the beach, instead of having to deal with the hot afternoon sun after you get back from the beach. We just put in new tiled floors, to help make your stay that much more convenient & easy, not to mention beautiful. The 3 bedrooms help each to have some space of their own while on vacation, & if you have kids with you, the bunkroom is perfect for their quiet time part of the day. I left some movies & novels for you, to help you get away from it all. The kitchen is beautifully efficient with both the beauty of its granite countertops & the efficiency of being fully stocked with the appliances you may need. As for the bathrooms, it is always nice to have more than 1 bathroom when on your 'vacay'. Don't forget the beach itself! Many coasts have brown sand or like the natural beach of Hawaii, many have the grit of ground-up seashells on which to walk. Destin is much different with its sugar-white, soft sand on our beach. Activities are great, here in Destin, too, whether you like fun-in-the-sun activities, shopping, going to the spa, museums, antiquing, or fun such as putt-putting or go-cart riding, Destin has it all. Don't forget the wonderful restaurants which top off your visit. And of course, the beach, with its peaceful waves & its bright sunshine, call your name to come relax & restore your soul.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Tuscan-Italian decor; granite countertops; newly tiled floor; beach view & sounds of the waves from our 40' balcony; 4 free beach chairs/day w/ 2 free umbrellas/day during high season; small approved dogs can vacation w/ you for free; flat screen tv & dvd player in each bedroom; 3 bedrooms & a sleeper sofa equals 8 may sleep here; wall phones; 3rd floor location provides privacy; miles of sidewalks parallel the beach & make for a great workout as well as the fitness room, tennis courts & shuffelboard court; gated community; 2 1/2 miles of private Maraville beach; 2 pools with 1 heated seasonally; hot tub; & walking distance to several restaurants make Maravilla your go-to place for your next vacation
