Maravilla condo description
We take the guessing out of booking a vacation rental home; our calendar is ALWAYS up-to-date! If this one is booked, be sure to check our other condo, right next-door. See VRBO listing # 14733 And we also own one in Building #3, you can view VRBO listing # 554900
Maravilla is the one of most popular family resorts in Destin!
This condo is our second home and we invite you to use it as your own. Our 3 bedroom condo is one of the biggest condominium floor plans available in Maravilla. It is open and airy with ceramic tile throughout (no moldy-mildew carpeting to worry about). It has a large forty-foot balcony off the living room and master bedroom. Our condo is the perfect place for your family to use alone or to share with friends.
Because we have 2 master suites, both with King-size beds, attached baths and HDTV’s, neither couple will have to sacrifice the “better bedroom.” The third bedroom is perfect for the children with twin size bunk beds. You will be pleasantly surprised by all the 'extras' in our home that you would not normally find in a rental unit. No need to pack up your porta-crib, high chair, or sand toys, we have them all! And of course, you will love the white sand Destin beach that is just footsteps away. ____________________________________ Master BEDROOM #1 and Attached Bathroom The Master suite has a King size bed with Egyptian cotton sheets, 2 night stands, reading lamps, HDTV and attached balcony. The attached full bathroom has a tub/shower combination, hair dryer and large fluffy bath towels.
Master BEDROOM #2 and Attached Bathroom The Master Bedroom 2 has a Brand New Pillow Top King size bed with Egyptian cotton sheets, 2 night stands, reading lamps, HDTV. The attached full bathroom has a tub/shower combination, hair dryer and large fluffy bath towels.
BEDROOM # 3 Our third bedroom is a small bedroom which is prefect for children. It features twin-size bunk beds with regular mattresses (not those thin bunk mattresses). There’s also a night stand and a small wardrobe for storing clothes (or toys) while you stay.
____________ LIVING ROOM In our main living area we have a very comfortable queen size sofa sleeper with reading lamps nearby, we also have a love seat, a chair and ottoman, which all provide ample comfortable seating for 8 . We also have an HDTV with digital cable channels, a DVD player and a full stereo. The living room opens up to our large balcony via sliding glass doors. _______ BALCONY Our balcony is nearly forty feet long and features a table and chairs so you can sit and enjoy your morning coffee. The balcony faces east so you get the morning sun and afternoon shade, making it comfortable to sit outside on the balcony even in the afternoon. ____________________________________ FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN and DINING AREA Our kitchen is well-equipped with a high-end coffee maker (Cuisinart Grind and Brew,) a blender that will grind all of your ice for frozen drinks, and a George Forman Grill. We have more than 16 plates, glasses, forks, etc. so you don't have to wash your breakfast dishes before you eat lunch. We have plenty of pots and pans and baking pans. We also supply many “extras” such as cleaning products, trash bags, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, sugar, creamer and spices. The Dining area features a large table (with an extra leaf and 8 chairs).
__________________________ EXTRAS in our CONDO For your convenience, we also have a washer and dryer, and iron and ironing board. And if you would like to keep up with friends, family or work while you are away, we provide free high-speed internet and WIFI. We provide 2 beach chairs and an umbrella reserved and set up each day (Mar 15-Oct 15).
Lastly, our condos are pet friendly! Any size dogs are welcome (yes, that means we welcome even large dogs). The dog walking area is just outside our door. There is a $200 extra fee to bring your dog along and must be pre-approved by the owner. __________________________ MARAVILLA RESORT AMENITIES Maravilla is the one of the most popular family resorts in Destin.

When I arrived at this Maravilla condo, I was “beary” impressed with my new home for the next couple of nights. The unit was even more spacious than I expected with a very open floorplan and large balcony. The overall cleanliness and the comfortable appearance made me feel right at home. The beachy décor was some of the best I’ve seen – my favorite part was the bunk bed room with a flip flop theme.
Bear in mind that I had traveled for quite some time that day, and it was nice to arrive at such a welcoming home. The first thing we did upon arrival was take a stroll to nearby Pompano Joe’s, a delicious seafood joint within walking distance and right on the water. I even splurged on one of the best pina coladas I’ve ever had! We then came home to get some beauty rest in the very comfortable beds in preparation for the next day. After getting some much needed rest, it was great to wake up to the smell of eggs and bacon in our fully-equipped kitchen.
The location of Maravilla is perfect for enjoying all the Destin has to offer – shops, restaurants, kid (and cub!)-friendly entertainment, and of course, the beach! And at the end of a busy day, it was great to kick back on the balcony and enjoy the breeze or relax on the couch with my paws up. No matter the reason for your travels, you simply can’t deny the comfort and convenience of this condo.
The VRBO Bear P.S. Beach was lovely – no oil at all!

About the owner: Hi,
We're Tom, Christine, Zachary our two dogs Trumpet and Piccolo. (People always ask--no dogs are not Golden Retrievers they are Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers.)
Why the Owner Chose Maravilla: We purchased our condo in Destin because we wanted a place for our family to gather and build fond family memories. Though we only have one child we purchased a 3 bedroom condo so that our family or good friends could join us.
We live in Austin, Texas now (we bought our Marvailla Condo when we lived in Atlanta, GA.) While living in Atlanta we would visit Destin every chance we could. Now that we are much further away, we have to plan our trips. But are looking forward to retiring in Destin someday!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Our guests who stay with us comment on how well equipped our condo is. While it may not be your deciding factor when you are choosing places to rent, you will appreciate it once you get here. Most everything you’ll need during your stay is here!
Because we live so far away, we take special care to make sure everything is in perfect condition. It’s imperative that we have the best help there in Destin. We employ a housekeeper who only cleans for a couple of people. We do not use one of those massive cleaning companies who dash in and out of the condo in 15 minutes and call it clean. Our housekeeper takes hours to clean our condo (yes the cleaning fee is $10-$20 more than you’d pay with others but we ensure it’ll be really clean!)
Every time we visit our condo, we are constantly upgrading! The last time we visited we bought all new mattresses, redecorated living room, kid's room and masters. This year we also got a new front-loader washer and dryer, a new refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave.
Come and stay with us and I can assure you’ll be happy!
