Maravilla is the one of most popular family resorts in Destin!

This condo is our second home and we invite you to use it as your own. Our 3 bedroom condo is one of the biggest condominium floor plans available in Maravilla. It is open and airy with NEW wood-look ceramic tile throughout (no moldy-mildew carpeting to worry about). It has a large forty-foot balcony off the living room and master bedroom. Our condo is the perfect place for your family to use alone or to share with friends.

Because we have 2 master suites, both with King-size beds, attached baths and HDTV’s, neither couple will have to sacrifice the “better bedroom.” The third bedroom is perfect for the children with twin size bunk beds. You will be pleasantly surprised by all the 'extras' in our home that you would not normally find in a rental unit. No need to pack up your porta-crib, high chair, or sand toys, we have them all! And of course, you will love the white sand Destin beach that is just footsteps away.

____________________________________

Master BEDROOM #1 and Attached Bathroom

The Master suite has a King size bed with Egyptian cotton sheets, 2 night stands, reading lamps, HDTV and attached balcony. The attached full bathroom has a NEW custom tiled shower with a frameless glass door, hair dryer and large fluffy bath towels.

Master BEDROOM #2 and Attached Bathroom

The Master Bedroom 2 has a Brand New Pillow Top King size bed with Egyptian cotton sheets, 2 night stands, reading lamps, HDTV. The attached full bathroom has a NEW tub/shower combination, hair dryer and large fluffy bath towels.

BEDROOM # 3

Our third bedroom is a small bedroom which is prefect for children. It features twin-size bunk beds with regular mattresses (not those thin bunk mattresses). There’s also a small wardrobe for storing clothes (or toys) while you stay.

____________

LIVING ROOM

In our main living area we have a very comfortable queen size sofa sleeper with reading lamps nearby, we also have a love seat, a chair and ottoman, which all provide ample comfortable seating for 8 . We also have an HDTV with digital cable channels, a DVD player and a full stereo. The living room opens up to our large balcony via sliding glass doors.

_______

BALCONY

Our balcony is nearly forty feet long and features a table and chairs so you can sit and enjoy your morning coffee. The balcony faces east so you get the morning sun and afternoon shade, making it comfortable to sit outside on the balcony even in the afternoon.

____________________________________

FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN and DINING AREA

Our NEW kitchen is like no other in Maravilla ! The kitchen has been reconfigured so there is much more counter space and many more cabinets. It features all granite countertops, a large single-bowl stainless sink and all stainless appliances. The refrigerator is built-in adjacent to the kitchen.

And of course, our kitchen is well-equipped with a regular drip coffee maker as well as a Keurig K-cup coffee maker, a blender that will grind all of your ice for frozen drinks, and a George Foreman Grill. We have more than 16 plates, glasses, forks, etc. so you don't have to wash your breakfast dishes before you eat lunch. We have plenty of pots and pans and baking pans. We also supply many “extras” such as cleaning products, trash bags, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, sugar, creamer and spices.

The Dining area features a large table (with an extra leaf and 8 chairs).

__________________________

EXTRAS in our CONDO

For your convenience, we also have a washer and dryer, and iron and ironing board.

And if you would like to keep up with friends, family or work while you are away, we provide free high-speed internet and WIFI.

We provide 2 beach chairs and an umbrella reserved and set up each day (Mar 15-Oct 15).

Lastly, our condos are pet friendly! Any size dogs are welcome (yes, that means we welcome even large dogs). The dog walking area is just outside our door. There is a $200 extra fee to bring your dog along and must be pre-approved by the owner.

About Tom and Christine

Hi,

We're Tom, Christine, Zachary our two dogs Trumpet and Piccolo. (People always ask--no dogs are not Golden Retrievers they are Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers.)

Tom and Christine purchased this condo in 1997

Why Tom and Christine chose Scenic Gulf Drive East

We purchased our condo in Destin because we wanted a place for our family to gather and build fond family memories. Though we only have one child we purchased a 3 bedroom condo so that our family or good friends could join us.

We live in Austin, Texas now (we bought our Marvailla Condo when we lived in Atlanta, GA.) While living in Atlanta we would visit Destin every chance we could. Now that we are much further away, we have to plan our trips. But are looking forward to retiring in Destin someday!

What makes this condo unique

Our guests who stay with us comment on how well equipped our condo is. While it may not be your deciding factor when you are choosing places to rent, you will appreciate it once you get here. Most everything you’ll need during your stay is here!

Because we live so far away, we take special care to make sure everything is in perfect condition. It’s imperative that we have the best help there in Destin. We employ a housekeeper who only cleans for a couple of people. We do not use one of those massive cleaning companies who dash in and out of the condo in 15 minutes and call it clean. Our housekeeper takes hours to clean our condo (yes the cleaning fee is $10-$20 more than you’d pay with others but we ensure it’ll be really clean!)

Every time we visit our condo, we are constantly upgrading! The last time we visited we totally remodeled the condo (completed Dec 2015). The previous trip, bought all new mattresses, redecorated living room, kid's room and the two master bedrooms.

Come and stay with us and I can assure you’ll be happy!

Reviews

Ah!  Great Destin Condo with two Master Bedrooms--and right on the beach!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Aug 6, 2010

When I arrived at this Maravilla condo, I was “beary” impressed with my new home for the next couple of nights. The unit was even more spacious than I expected with a very open floorplan and large balcony. The overall cleanliness and the comfortable appearance made me feel right at home. The beachy décor was some of the best I’ve seen – my favorite part was the bunk bed room with a flip flop theme. Bear in mind that I had traveled for quite some time that day, and it was nice to arrive at such a welcoming home. The first thing we did upon arrival was take a stroll to nearby Pompano Joe’s, a delicious seafood joint within walking distance and right on the water. I even splurged on one of the best pina coladas I’ve ever had! We then came home to get some beauty rest in the very comfortable beds in preparation for the next day. After getting some much needed rest, it was great to wake up to the smell of eggs and bacon in our fully-equipped kitchen. The location of Maravilla is perfect for enjoying all the Destin has to offer – shops, restaurants, kid (and cub!)-friendly entertainment, and of course, the beach! And at the end of a busy day, it was great to kick back on the balcony and enjoy the breeze or relax on the couch with my paws up. No matter the reason for your travels, you simply can’t deny the comfort and convenience of this condo. The VRBO Bear P.S. Beach was lovely – no oil at all!

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (plus our furry son) stayed at this condo June 17-24. We usually rent a condo in the Keys each year and this was a new destination for us. We were not disappointed! It is a nicely decorated condo with all the things you need for a great beach getaway. The renovation was done well and everything from the "wood look" tile floors, granite countertops and quality kitchen cabinets make you feel like you are at home rather than at a rental... The beds are comfortable and the linens and towels are nicer quality than your average rental. The furniture in the family room/kitchen area is quality furniture and there was plenty of seating for everyone to have their own space.

The property itself has a combo of homes and condo units and it is steps to the ocean. VERY easy access. The beach chairs/umbrella service that is included in the condo rental is awesome! The two pools are adequate and we spent most of our pool time at the one located nearest the ocean. Lots of people traveling with pets and it was no problem at all. When we were there everyone was using the "dog walking area" and picking up after their pets... also it should be noted we never heard any barking at all...

Destin has TONS to do and we went on a charter fishing boat, shopping and restaurants every day. We had some rainy weather during our trip and the local bowling alley and laser tag place kept the kids busy and happy. Overall a great vacation and we will be back!

Beach wedding trip

The condo is in a great location! Beds are comfortable. The tennis courts were handy. Child friendly. Very short walk to the beach and having 2 beach chair setups was a bonus!

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

First off, I want to mention the welcome gift (a box of fresh and amazing donuts) and note that was waiting for us when we arrived. Definitely a nice touch.

We stayed for a week and were very happy with the cleanliness and comfort of the condo. Nicely decorated and the kitchen had everything we needed.

Considering how big the complex is and how many people (and dogs) were there, it was surprisingly very quiet. Never had problems with loud neighbors.

The location was great (about a 2 minute walk to the beach) and parking was never a problem.

Definitely a condo I'd rent again.

Perfect place for a small family with a large dog.

  • 4 of 5

This condo was newly renovated and perfect for what we needed. We traveled with 2 couples, one toddler, and a golden retriever. The condo was well decorated, stocked with the basics and the king size beds in each room were very comfortable. The front bedroom (with bunk beds) was very small and we had a little trouble fitting our travel crib on the floor.

The walk to the beach was very close (2 min from door to beach chair) and was perfectly located away from the noisy and busy part of Destin. The reserved beach chairs and umbrella were a blessing so we didn't have to carry those items to the beach each morning and the service was excellent. We added an extra chair for $9.00/day. We could also walk to a few restaurants (0.5 miles or less) from the condo.

I only have two negatives for our stay. 1) The sliding doors that lead to the patios for the complex sounded exactly like thunder to our Golden Retriever when the other units open their doors. We unfortunately had people around us that used those doors excessively! Our poor dog wasn't thrilled as she's terrified of thunder. So if your dog also reacts negatively to thunder I would look elsewhere. 2) The water filter in the fridge was in need of changing and once it was promptly changed the water was foggy.... We ending up sticking to bottled water for the week however I'm sure this is an easy fix for the property managers.

Overall the condo fit our needs and best of all they accept large dogs!
