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 2013

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. 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!

Nice place, close to the beach.

  • 4 of 5

The unit was nice, clean, and seemed to be remodeled in the last few years. There were yummy donuts from the Donut Hole when we arrived, which was great. The condo had everything we needed, including a high chair and pack and play- which was great that we didn't have to pack that! The listing mentioned there were toys (I assumed beach toys, etc) but there were not any. We took our two labradors, who enjoyed the patio and the large sliding doors for their daily lounging. A few cons: the level above us- the sliding door- is sooooooo loud. It sounds like a long roll of thunder every time they opened and closed the patio door. The unit faces the gate to the complex, so it was a little louder than we would have liked. But overall, we had a great time and would definitely go back!

Good Place for Pet Owners

  • 4 of 5

Just got back from staying at this property. Appeared to be newly renovated and was overall in great condition. Curtains in the guest bedroom had pet hair on them, otherwise the property was very clean. The complex had plenty of space for walking dogs. Also is within walking distance from Pompano Joes which has great lunch specials that I highly recommend.

If we could give it 6 Stars...

  • 5 of 5

If we could give it a 6th star, we would. From the time we started inquiring about the property and making sure there wouldn't be any issues with our dog, we were impressed. The responses were within an hour, and once we decided this would be our spot, we rec'd a phone call confirming everything as well as making sure there weren't any other questions. When we checked in, there was a box of donuts from the Donut Hole (highly recommend for breakfast too) along with a personal handwritten note welcoming us. There's a very handy information packet that we used quite often with shopping, activities, dining, and important general information about the area. The white sand beaches are about a 2 minute walk from the condo door. We were a little nervous about having to cross a street to get to the beach, but it's a 25 mph street with a law for vehicles to stop for pedestrians and not a lot of traffic (we were there during Spring Break). The two chairs and umbrella that are complimentary came in very handy too. There are several restaurants within walking distance, but one that's just to the West a little further is Camille's (a tiny cafe for breakfast and lunch with a separate restaurant for dinner). We ate there 3 times, and everything was great... highly recommend the sushi! The condo itself is updated nicely with a very beach-y feel and everything you'd need to stay in if desired. Between the owners, the property, and the location... we wish there were 6 stars!
