About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6, Washer/ Dryer, Wifi, Tasteful Decor, Gulf Views

Be sure to look at our new 3D video that gives you a tour of your rental before you even arrive.

This one bedroom, one bath condo at the Maravilla was designed as the owners future retirement home. She is renting it out in hopes that it could be used as a retreat for travelers to come and enjoy our wonderful island.

Recently remodeled. The decor in this beautiful condo was designed to make you feel like you truly are part of the ocean. The colors of the condo compliment the island and owners excellent taste. All was carefully selected so that the traveler can truly enjoy what the owner has created for her enjoyment. A spa like quality has also been considered when designing the accommodations.

We sleep 6 with a queen bed in the master, a queen sleeper sofa, and 2 bunk beds. We do prefer to not to have 6 adults as we do not feel we are set up to accommodate 6 adults. Special exceptions can be made if an explanation is sent to the property manager when booking. We hope many families and couples can enjoy this condo.

The condo features granite counter tops, gorgeous accents in the kitchen, a beautiful tiled shower, and much more.

Our kitchen is set up to fully serve all your cooking needs. Warm up a quick bit to eat or cook a wonderful meal versus going out to eat. We love that we can offer the savings of having either a quick snack or a way to prepare a meal as part of your vacation needs.

We will only consider small pets on a case by case basis.

The Maravilla is located at the Western end of the Seawall. It is close to everything. You can enjoy the fireworks from Bands on the Sand during summer weekends as you sit on the balcony. The location is truly perfect in our opinion. We are about a quarter of a mile away from multiple beach pocket parks. The area in front of the complex is rocky. You can see the heated pool from the balcony. The Western side of the complex has 2 more gorgeous pools, a waterfall, and a hot tub. Our grounds are truly beautiful.

Very well done with all amenities provided. They have thought of everything! The beds and linens are very comfortable. The heated pool is warm enough to swim in in December. The balcony is great!
