About Sugar Palm Rentals
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.)
Sugar Palm Rentals purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Sugar Palm Rentals chose Miramar Beach
We purchased our condo in Destin because we wanted a place for our family to gather and build fond family memories. We love Maravilla so much that we now own 3 of them! 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
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! Our guests who stay with us comment on how well equipped our condo is. 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! Come and stay with us and I can assure you’ll be happy!

Very nice property. Fantastic location!
We really enjoyed our stay. The unit is nicely furnished and the master bedroom bed was extremely comfortable. The kitchen is large and well stocked with everything we needed for an extended stay. Quite impressive for a rental property. It is very roomy with a large balcony and a nice side view of the Gulf. The location cannot be beat. You are steps from Scenic Gulf Drive where you can walk along the water for miles on sidewalks. Local beachside restaurants are within walking distance. Maravilla is only four floors with parking right outside your door. Anyone that has ever stayed in a high rise with parking across the street will understand the allure of this often forgotten convenience.
My only recommendation would be that more attention is paid to the bathrooms. The shower rod in the master bath was rusted as were the toilet paper holders in both bathrooms. There was also minor ceiling water damage in the master bath and the shower tub was chipped.
I would definitely stay in this property again and highly recommend it.
No better way to say you enjoyed your stay than to pre-book another stay before you leave! We look forward to seeing you again in the fall :-)
Thanks so much for your kind review of our condo. We're so happy that you enjoyed our condo. Maravilla is such a great complex and location. All of our guests really enjoy this aspect. And yes, we try really hard to equip our rentals with everything our guests need. Glad you noticed and appreciated that. As for the rusty shower curtain rod, we changed it after you left--in Destin, with the salt air anything metal needs to be changed about once a year because it rusts.
Lovely, comfortable condo
We enjoyed our stay. Prior to arrival they contacted us frequently with information. We ended up not bringing our dogs, but we paid the fee. The beach is NOT dog friendly. Lots of baby things to use... I didn't see a full list but they had a pick and play, kids bowls and cups, and a high chair and baby gate which was nice. A picture of all of that would be helpful for future renters because we are picky with what we use, so we packed it anyway. Turns out you use what we do! Beds were very comfy and there were things like paper towels and TP available, which is nice because we got in so late. Beach chairs can be reserved in the am... we always had them but some days we got closer to the water than others. You can also pay a reasonable fee for another umbrella or chair.
I didn't like we were expected to actually clean up prior to departure (e.g. Sweep floors prior to departure) ... I leave things clean anyway, but given the fees we are charged in addition to the nightly rate, something like this should be included. Note the condo is not beachfront (not beach views). But it isn't a far walk either. Overall we enjoyed ourselves!
Fun Relaxing Beach 🏖 Getaway
I loved the proximity to the beach! Right across the street! The area is peaceful even though there are neighbors it was quiet. The condo is well decorated and comfortable. Thanks for allowing dogs. He goes everywhere with us... We will be back!!! 💙�💙�♥️💕�
Great condo, great location, beautiful beaches!
We loved our stay. We were greeted with a dozen donuts from the Donut Hole that were yummy. Sugar Palms staff was wonderful and very responsive. We had one issue our first full day there, but they were on it in no time. Thank you, Sherry! Our only complaint was the traffic on the main road and the construction. Other than that, it was a great week. Our daughter loved the pools on the property. They were clean and not too crowded. We never had any issues crossing the street to the beach. Everyone seemed to be mindful that pedestrians had the right of way. I would definitely recommend this place and will return again.
Completely met our vacation needs!!
Our family enjoyed staying in condo 3205 which was one of the nicest units we have stayed in over the past 10 years. Sugar Palm Rentals was great to work with throughout the rental process. Getting a before 4:00 pm call letting us know our condo was available was a pleasant surprise. Upon our arrival we were greeted by a representative from Sugar Palm who stocked the condo with a few kitchen staples. The dozen donuts on the kitchen counter from the Donut Hole was a treat for the family. We highly recommend using Sugar Palm rentals and we will contact them for future stays in Destin.
Last minute accommodations worked out beautifully.
We had a leave our previous rental because we had a dog with us and their policy about dogs had changed :( We found this delightful rental available and were able to move in the next day. It turned out to be closer to the water than our previous place even tho we were across the street from the beach. The other place was a huge high rise condo. We much preferred this place, a smaller pet friendly condo. We had some trouble with a complicated lock but managed to figure it out. Thank you!
