About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Come visit Florida's best kept secret! Destin, Florida! Our beautiful Emerald Coast has a vast array of recreation choices for a family seeking an affordable vacation. More flights are available to this area due to newly opened airports, Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP) in Panama City Beach and Northwest Florida Regional Airport (VPS).

Once you arrive at our 'paradise away from home', you will be overwhelmed by the unobstructed ocean view. You also have a view of the gulf side pool where you are provided a beach shower, restrooms and BBQ grills.

Maravilla 2408 is on the top floor near the elevator of Building #2 which faces the Gulf of Mexico overlooking the sugar white beaches. During the high season (March to October), two beach chairs along with an umbrella are setup each morning waiting on your arrival.

Did I mention we welcome your PET to join you on your vacation. The master bedroom opens onto the balcony providing a beautiful view from the king size bed. The guest room has a queen size bed. For more guests to enjoy the view, the sofa converts to a queen size bed. While in bed or in the living area, you can enjoy watching your favorite television programs on the new flat screen televisions with DVD players in both bedrooms.

As you can see from the photos we have improved the entire condo with a new kitchen, new bathroom vanities and storage, and all new furniture (including mattresses). You will enjoy a fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. There is a full size high efficiency washing machine and dryer with storage cabinets. You can stay in touch with your friends and family with free Wi Fi. You will have everything you need for your stay.

Maravilla Resort Condominiums, 2606 Scenic Gulf Drive, Miramar Beach, Florida, is the most popular family oriented complex in Destin. We have 2.5 acres of private beach, the largest private beach on Miramar. We are a 33 acre, gated resort with extensive interior parking, portico for loading and unloading, and the clubhouse that is available to be rented for family gatherings or weddings.

You may find yourself tired after a day of enjoying all that Maravilla has to offer. You can sit on the bar height chairs and table on the balcony to relax and enjoy the view.

Our unit is non-smoking. It is immaculately cleaned and inspected after each departure.

We hope you enjoy our condo and come back soon!

About Karon Nicholas

Hi! Karon, David and Booger (our 4 legged child) Nicholas LOVE Destin! We try to come to Destin as much as possible, but it is never enough. We intend on making Destin our primary residence when we retire. Destin is our PARADISE!

Karon Nicholas purchased this condo in 1998

Why Karon Nicholas chose Miramar Beach

We have been coming to the Gulf Coast as long as I can remember. When our children were young, we wanted to own a condo that was 'intimate' and family oriented. The view had to be of the ocean with additional amenities on-site and within walking distance of restaurants. Maravilla met all of our requirements. We have enjoyed so many priceless memories with our family at Maravilla and look forward to enjoying many more in the future.

What makes this condo unique

Our fourth floor unit is on the top floor of building 2 and very close to the elevator. We have so many extras in our condo as well as those offered by Maravilla. Of course, you cannot miss watching the dolphins play and the sunset on the beach which is just steps away or on your own balcony!

Good but not great

  • 3 of 5

The condo is nice. The balcony and gulf view were disappointing. There is a very busy street (5-10 cars per minute in November) and a utility pole and wires right outside the balcony. We have stayed at many true beachfront condos, this one is OK but not excellent due to the balcony.

Beautiful condo with an amazing view! Can't wait to stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

The owners are wonderful to work with. Our reservations started the day that tropical storm was scheduled to hit so we were a little anxious to go. Karen kept us posted on the weather and was great. We can't wait to stay there again :)

Beautiful and Comfortable!!

  • 5 of 5

This is my 4th year staying in this same building at Maravilla however my first time staying in this condo. It is now the only condo I will stay at in Destin. The moment I opened the front door I was in awe. It was very clean and fresh smelling. Every room in the condo is beautiful. It looks like it has been decorated professionally however it invites you to be at home and be comfortable. The master, living room and balcony have full gulf view, in fact we were fortunate enough to see pods of dolphins swimming several mornings. The kitchen is well appointed .. the only thing you need is your groceries. The beds are extremely comfortable. The grounds of the complex are very well groomed and kept clean daily as are the two pools. It is the ultimate in relaxation to sit on the balcony with your morning coffee or your evening glass of wine and or your meal while watching and listening to the waves. I miss it already and am looking forward to a return visit. What a pleasure it is to not have to worry about anything. The owners, Karon and David are very friendly and easy to do business with. This is definitely the condo to rent for a 5 star experience.

Nice condo, easy walk to the beach, dog friendly

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very nice and clean. Plenty of space for our group of 4 adults plus two dogs. Plenty of parking and easy access to the beach. The beach in front of Maravilla was crowded since it's LDW but we walked a little further to the public portion and had no problems.
