About Jean D. Davis

Encouraged by friends who already owned property in Destin, we purchased our first condo in 1996. Eight years later, we had the opportunity to buy in Maravilla and have never regretted that decision. We are both retired and live in Alabama, just 3.5 hours from Destin. We enjoy sharing our condo with our children, grandchildren, friends, or just getting away by ourselves. When we are unable to be in Destin, we have found that vacationers, especially those who own pets, love our condo and our location. We hope that you will love it as we do.

Jean D. Davis purchased this condo in 2004

Why Jean D. Davis chose Miramar Beach

Maravilla 4205 is perfect for us as a couple, but also has room for company. Our grandchildren love it as it is cozy, comfortable, tastefully decorated, a place where you can enjoy a vacation at the beach. Two of our grandchildren have dogs and they love being able to bring them along. Quiet time for the children is often spent on the balcony or watching movies in the bedroom, while the adults have their quiet time on the beach, balcony, or living area.

What makes this condo unique

I am a Floridian who moved to Alabama in the 60's. When I am in Destin, most of my time is spent on the beach, which makes the chairs and umbrella my favorite amenities. When the grandchildren are there, we spend our time going between both pools and the beach or the water park, which is not too far away.

Very nice Condo

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week stay with our 2 dogs. We all had a wonderful time. Condo is very nice and supplied well.

Loved the location and the fact we could see the water from the balcony. The beach and the bay area are beautiful.

It was very nice to have chairs and umbrella waiting for us at the beach everyday. Lots of restaurants and shopping close by. We hope to be back to the Destin area and will remember this condo for sure.

Great Little Condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with our 4-legged kids, had a great week in this condo. It was our first visit to the Destin Area and we enjoyed the whole week. Expect some delays coming across the bridge but once you are there everything is just a short distance away. The condo was set up nicely and had everything you could need. We only used the pool once but that was because the heat was so high in the area it was really warm, just the nature of the time of year. The beach is beautiful and I would suggest taking advantage of the beach chairs that are there. I am sure we will be back to the Destin area and this condo will be at the top of our list for stays.

Family Friendly Resort

  • 4 of 5

We stay at Maravilla every summer and decided to down size to a one bedroom unit. This unit was very nice and had enough space for two adults and two boys. The owners were wonderful to work with.. I did give feedback to get room darking draps since the early AM sum comes in the Master bedroom. We stayed two wks and really enjoyed the unit and the amentites offered. Nice large private beach with beach chairs provided.

This unit has everything you need. Welcome to your home away from home. This unit has updated furniture and electronics. Most importantly, it's kept clean. The location is perfect. The property is located within minutes of a multitude of restaurants and stores. But located off the beaten path enough to offer some quiet time too. The area for the dogs is just a short walk across the parking area from the unit itself. Which made it very nice for quick trips when needed. The umbrella and chair service at the beach was a treat. Jean, thank you for a much needed break. We hope to visit again in the future.

This was absolutely one of the best condo's we have ever stayed in. The entire complex is immaculate and very close to everything. The weather didn't cooperate till the day before we left so we got to enjoy the condo more than usual. Hope to come back some day.
