Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We have been coming to the Destin area since the 70s. We love the beach and the area. We knew we wanted to buy a condo in this area. Maravilla became our obvious choice when we began looking for a beach vacation home. We immediately fell in love with the intimate atmosphere. My husband and I both enjoy the beach and Maravilla felt like home.

Why the Owner Chose Miramar Beach, FL, USA:
We chose Maravilla for the unobstructed access to the beach (no other homes or buildings between the condo and the beach); the restaurants within walking distance; the ground level access to the condo-no stairs to climb; three bedrooms in the unit; the private beach access; and beach access is just steps away.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Maravilla is located on Scenic Gulf Drive and it is one of most beautiful stretches of road in all the world. We enjoy walking on the walking along the large 7 foot wide path for miles and just look at the waves lapping onto the shore. In the morning, since the master bedroom goes out onto the patio, we enjoy an early morning coffee while we watch the sun come up in the east. Pompano Joe's on the beach, is only 1/4 mile away, and an easy walk for some great seafood right on the beach. But the best part is the warm family atmosphere. It is simply the best.
