About Dennis Aydt

I have managed this property for the owners since they purchased it in 2008. I have managed my own property since 2003 and other properties since 2005. The owner's comments are below:

We bought this condo in 2008 because we both love the white sand of the gulf and wanted a place with a great gulf view, and this corner condo has it! We wanted a place where we could take our pet with us, and place where our pet was welcome. My wife loves the beach and I love to play golf, so Destin is perfect for both of us. We are sure if you try Maravilla, for your vacation rental we think you will like it as much as we do.

Why Dennis Aydt chose Miramar Beach

We love Destin. Destin is only a short drive from our home and easy for us to get away with only a short notice. Maravilla has excellent restaurants, only a short walk in either direction. Destin has so many great golf courses, water park, minature golf, go-carts and many other family oriented fun things to do.

What makes this condo unique

Our Condo has a spectacular panaramic view of the gulf from our balcony, living room and master bedroom. Maravilla has a fabulous private white sand beach, used by only other Maravilla owners and their guests. We offer free to our guests two beach chairs and an umbrella set up on the beach from mid-March thru October.

Guestbook comments from the owner


We had a GREAT time at your place at Maravilla! Your place is PERFECT! We enjoyed it soooo much and plan to return in the future. Also, Matt the beach service guy was great also! Even though it rained 14 inches of rain Wednesday - Saturday, your place was a great place to hang out in when not out and about in the rain. Now Saturday - Tuesday were some of the most perfect days (weather, surf, etc) that we have ever had in going to Destin for 20 years! Believe me, I will contact you first when we return to Destin. We may try to go down for a few days during October (School Fall Break) if you would rent for a Friday - Monday long weekend. I have certainly been bragging about your place to my friends!

Again, thanks!

The condo was lovely. The decor was beautiful. We felt right at home. It had everything we needed and more with a gorgeous view. I loved having chair service on the private beach each morning. The corner unit was a plus.

Beautiful condo and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The condo is beautifully updated and furnished. We felt very at home. The kitchen is well equipped. I brought pans and utensils from home because I normally am not pleased with what is provided, but I didn't even need to use any of my kitchen supplies.

The balcony is nice & quiet, even though it's next to the entrance. I was worried we would hear cars coming and going from the bedroom, but we never heard a peep.

The hallway in the master bedroom that leads to the bathroom and the bathroom itself are both warm because of lack of circulation, but I set up a little fan in the bathroom and that was cool enough for me.

There are plenty of towels, blankets and pillows.

There's very easy access to the beach and the guys working down there had us set up everyday. The pool gets a little active in the mid-late afternoon, but thins out around 5pm and we practically had the pool to ourselves.

The margaritas at Pompano Joe's are delish and it's within walking distance, so no worries about drinking & driving.

We rented a tandem bike about a half mile down the road and loved getting around on it.

We had a great stay and will definitely stay in this condo again!!

Perfect !!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was just perfect in so many ways.Dennis was definitely a hands on and attentive owner who actually went above and beyond to ensure that our vacation time was as good as it could be.The location was perfect with a stunning gulf view across the front of the unit.It was a corner unit near both the stairs and the elevator.The unit itself was updated and clean .The beds were comfortable and the rooms were decorated nicely.We were within walking distance of several restaurants.The area was family friendly with many people utilizing the roadside path for walking ,running and bicycle riding.Our Cocker Spaniel thoroughly enjoyed spending time on the front porch with us.Every day we enjoyed the complimentary beach umbrella and chairs.The day we left the owner Dennis asked if everything was in working order or if anything needed to be fixed .Our pet deposit has already been returned.We would definitely welcome the opportunity to stay in this condo again!

Perfect Condo--Everything advertised plus so much more!!

  • 5 of 5

We've travelled to Destin for about 25 years, and we've stayed all over from one end to the other. This is definitely one of the best condos we've stayed in for our winter vacation. First off, it was literally spotless! By far, the cleanest condo I've ever stayed in. Every space in the place was clean, including underneath the beds and in the nooks, crannies and corners. Not a speck of dust anywhere. I walked around in white socks, and they were clean on the botttom! It's beautifully furnished, very high end looking furniture and bedding. The towels are nice and thick. The kitchen is very well appointed, although we never cook on vacation, I believe everything was there for it. Beautiful tile floors througout the condo (this was the high point for me--I hate carpet in rentals, it grosses me out). The bathrooms were so clean, literally sparkling. I was so very impressed with this unit, 2201. The view is spectacular, as it's a wonderful and private corner unit. Dennis graciously allowed me to bring my two fur babies (however, they're much cleaner than most humans). This made my vacation complete, having my two "children" with me. It's the first time we've stayed at Maravilla, and I have to say, I am so very impressed. I've never given it much thought actually even though we've passed by it 100 times. It's really a lovely community. It's quiet and peaceful, very nice Maravilla neighborhood homes, a gated community with entrances in the front and the back which was really nice. I cannot say enough nice things about Maravilla and specifically this unit! We WILL be back, and probably for two weeks next year if it's available. Thank you Dennis for having us. It was also perfect weather, 60s and 70s every day!

Beautiful and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed your condo very much. Directly across the street from the private beach and very well located to restaurants and shopping some even in walking distance. The bed in the master was soooo comfortable.The balcony was awesome with open view of the ocean, sun rises and then sunsets.We plan on staying here again. Thank you Dennis for sharing your condo with us and being so helpful.
