Recent Scenic Gulf Drive Central West reviews
"My family of four stayed at this condo and my daughter brought a friend. We were very comfortable with the size , had plenty of room. The view is amazing from the top floor and being over the pool put us at ease with the teenagers going down alone. The ocean is right across the street with maybe a minute walk. We tried a few of the owners picks of restaurants and were very pleased. The check in and out were very smooth and easy. The second night we stayed the air was not working and I placed a call to Linda and she had someone out that next morning to fix it . We loved this condo and will definitely be back . If I had to give any feedback it would be we could have used more towels , trash bags, paper towels, and toilet paper for my family consisting of mostly girls. I know there is laundry on site and you can purchase those so not a big deal."

"I don't normally do reviews but I just loved this place. We traveled with three adults and four kids (ages 2, 5, 7, and 10) and there was plenty of space for all of us. And it is only a one minute walk across the street to a private beach access, so easy with kids and hauling stuff. This condo is located a little ways down from the boardwalk which was what we wanted, but it is still very close to restaurants and Destin Commons shopping. Only thing I would say is we did have to go out and buy our own toilet paper, trash bags, dish soap, and laundry soap because there was not enough provided to last a party of 7 for a whole week but other than that we had zero issues. Loved it and will def stay here again!"

Awesome location close to everything you need for a beach getaway!!
"My family of five just returned from our first trip to the Destin area and our stay at Maravilla #1101. The condo was very roomy with two very large bedrooms and one much smaller bunk room. The furnishings were exactly as pictured and the condo was clean. If you are looking for high-end amenities like granite countertops and fancy decor, this won't suit you, but we found it to be quite comfortable and served our needs well. The Maravilla complex is well-kept with the front pool just a 30 second walk from the condo.We enjoyed the recently resurfaced tennis courts and only used the front pool overlooking Scenic Gulf Drive and the Gulf itself. Maravilla is centrally located within easy walking distance of four restaurants and a coffee shop. Coffee shop is a leisurely 10 minute stroll; the restaurants are closer than that. We woke up each morning and walked the beach to the coffee shop. For lunch or dinner, Captain Dave's, Kenny G's, Pompano Joe's and the Whale's Tail were all within .25-.5 miles with great local seafood and outdoor dining. Parasailing and waverunner rentals are offered on the public beach near Whale's Tail (.5 miles) although I'd encourage people to drive to Destin Harbor for parasailing at a far lower price. The beached rival anything you'd find in the Caribbean with powdery white sand and turquoise/emerald waters. We all had a blast playing in the surf with boogie boards we picked up just down the road at Alvin's Island for $15 each. A must-have! There are baskets of books in the condo so you don't even have to worry about having that beach read along. The unit is managed by Southern Vacation Rentals and the booking and check-in process with them is quite easy. They offer an app for your phone that provides all the info you need to access the unit/complex as well as discount offers for local activities. We utilized the "free adult ticket" offer on a sunset dolphin cruise in Destin and saved $26. I was less impressed with the amenities they offered--they left just 4 rolls of toilet paper for the week, two kitchen trash bags. No Kleenex or even a pad of paper/pen. The unit had a coffee maker but no coffee filters. We picked up what we needed when we were at the nearby grocery store, although I'm sure they would have provided more TP and trash bags had we called them. If you are debating about where to vacation, just book this unit! The price is great, it's roomy and it's close to everything you need!! We'll be back!!"
