About Karen Pittman

We, the owners, are Eddie and Karen Pittman. We reside in Villa Rica, GA and hope to one day retire and live in this area. Eddie is a teacher/coach and Karen is a Real Estate investor and property manager.

Karen Pittman purchased this condo in 2010

Why Karen Pittman chose Scenic Gulf Drive East

We have come to this area for many years to vacation here. We feel our beach is the prettiest with its sugar-white sand that is not hot on your feet. We never tire of seeing dolphins in the ocean right in front of the condo. There are many restaurants to choose from, plenty of shopping and activities. The warmth of the sun and the gentle breeze is soothing and relaxing. The sound of the waves calls our names to come back year after year.

Very clean and close to beach

  • 5 of 5

Our condo was very clean and very well decorated. Beds were comfortable. Very nice to have 4 chairs and 2 umbrellas. Karen the owner was very helpful with everything.

Owner's Response: I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay and liked the clean condo! I actually cleaned it myself that day and gave the cleaning crew the day off! Providing 4 complimentary beach chairs is not common among condo owners. I'm glad you appreciated them!

We recommend it

  • 4 of 5

I recommend this property. My family had a wonderful stay here. We took advantage of most of the amenities (pool, tennis court) and really enjoyed being able to bring our small dog. This was our first time to this area. We really liked the character of the Frangista/Miramar area. It has a small town feel to this section of the Gulf Coast.

Owner's Response: The area and complex have a small town feel yet has a multitude of choices for things to do and places to go for shopping, dining, and fun! Or you can do as little as you want at the pool and beach! Dogs especially love the area too and Maravilla is one of the few places left that allow dogs. Thank you for visiting and please come back soon!

This condo was great for our needs. We had three families stay here, about 9 people. We each enjoyed everything about the condo, its amenities and more. It exceeded our expectations and would couldn't be happier with the location to the beach.

Shopping was super close, beach was down the street, and anything else you are looking to do in Destin was put on an agenda written by the wonderful owner of the condo. Karen was amazing to deal with and if we had any questions or concerns she answered them quickly.

Thanks again for the stay, we will be looking back at this location next year!!!

Great condo. Close to everything we needed. Karen Pittman very quick to respond to any e mails sent. We're coming back in October and will stay at same condos only one floor up. Karen gave us a lot of options available. We had a great time as did our little terrier.

good, but not for a girl in a wheelchair

  • 3 of 5

The condo was really nice, but when we made the reservations we were told it was accessible. My daughter is in a wheelchair full time, she could get in the front door, but she was not able to get into the bathroom, or up onto the bed. She also was not able to go out on the patio or reach the table. The beach was beautiful and the pools were great and we loved that we could bring our dog, but I learned that my idea of accessible and some one else's idea of accessible are very different. I also learned that I need to make calls before I use a web site to look for a place to stay to make sure it would be the right fit for my family.

Owner's Response: This guest did not contact me first or I would have happily and honestly described everything and answered any questions she may have had. I did not intentionally mislead her or miscommunicate anything to her. The condo has doors over 32" wide (including the bathrooms) and that is sufficient for a wheelchair. She is correct that the king-sized beds are high but they are shown in all my pictures. The 3rd bedroom bed is not high. The pictures seen on this site are accurate so it provides a true indicator of how the condo is laid out and how everything looks. Please contact me if you have any concerns before deciding on making a reservation. I love it when my guests are completely happy! It shows from my 44 reviews; I've gotten a 4.8 stars out of 5!
