3 BR 2 BA Maravilla Condo 1404 with beach service and beach decor. Top floor.
About Dennis Aydt
We have been vacationing in Destin since 1993 and purchased our first property in 2003. We fell in love with the beautiful sugar white sand beaches and emerald water. I also manage property for other owners in the Destin area. Although I have been working in sales since 1999, I am also a Registered Respiratory Therapist. I also graduated from the University of Illinois Springfield with a Business Degree.
Dennis Aydt purchased this Condo in 2003
Why Dennis Aydt chose
We love Maravilla as it has a large beach, 2 pools and one with a hot tub, plenty of parking, centrally located. The property is well maintained and upgrades to the property keep it looking fresh and new. There are at least 3 restaurants within 3 blocks of Maravilla and a walking path that goes for nearly 3 miles in either direction.
What makes this Condo unique
There are 2 tennis courts next to the North pool. This pool is heated seasonally and also has a hot tub. We have the BEST beach service guys in Destin!!! You will enjoy Matt and his crew.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Nice But Very Dirty
Average property, would have been a good stay but the property was very dirty. We had to clean when we got there. Owner did seem to be concerned and offered to send cleaning crew back but we had already cleaned.
Thank you very much for submitting your review. Unfortunately, my regular housekeeper was out of town for two weeks and I had a replacement take care of her duties. She obviously did not perform to my expectations and for that I offer my apologies. I wish you would have informed me of this at the time of your arrival so I could have fixed the problem. Dennis
Spring Break 2019
The place was very nice. Great location, short walk to the beach and pools, and nice to have close access to the walking trail. We're used to staying in Destin, but really liked the Miramar Beach location. Much easier to get around. Would definitely stay here again!
Great place for families!
Our family had a great time at the beach (loved the umbrella and chairs), swimming in the pool, and playing basketball, tennis and shuffleboard. We were also thrilled to be able to bring our dog. The condo had everything we needed and Dennis did a good job communicating information to us and checking in to make sure the condo was in good condition.
Thank you again for staying and I am so happy to hear your stay was enjoyable! Making memories!!
Great location, quick responses from owner, highly recommend
Dennis was quick to respond to all questions. The condo has plenty of room, a short walk to the beach, and the beach service is fantastic. Walking distance from a great beach restaurant/bar. Two great pools, lots of great owners in the building. Couldn’t have asked for anything more.
Thank you Chris for you kind words and I am so happy you enjoyed your vacation!!
Great time! Condo was clean and we love the location.
One of the best communities we’ve been to in Destin and they are dog friendly which is a huge plus! Will definitely stay there again.
Thank you for staying Adrian and glad you had a great vacation!
We will not be back to this unit or the Maravilla. I have been to Destin for years in a row now with my family. We stay somewhere different each time to get a variety of experience. First of all, when we arrived .. the unit was not even ready. It had not even been started on. Our check in was 4pm. I had to call the owner to tell him gnat after our 10 our drive we couldn’t get in unit. So the cleaning crew came and “cleaned “ in a hurry over the next 45 minutes. I don’t feel the did a very thorough job because they were in such a hurry and I’m not even sure our bed sheets had. Even changed Bc there was sand in them when we got in. We had to cover the couches with sheets Bc they felt and looked dirty and sandy. The floors in the carpet where also dirty. The sliding doors on the balcony are so heavy and dysfunctional it took a very strong person to open them each time was was inconvenient. And one of the door handles on one was already broken. There was no filtered water in the fridge so we had to buy ice each day Bc we got sick the first day using the ice from the freezer.
Then we go to he beach and find out we are not allowed to set up the big canopy we brought to shade our children and my aged father ... it’s not allowed on that section of the beach. That was very disappointing Bc we had packed that large item and carried it all the way from Kentucky. The two pools were so hot it was nauseating. You couldn’t enjoy the refreshment of cool water during the hottest part of the summer - which is what you look forward to at a pool. The fitness room ( which is something we looked forward to Bc we are active at home ) had such a terrible odor each day that we decided not to use it at all. It was hot in there and the TV never worked. There was very limited equipment. Not what you’d expect for an advertised fitness area.
This was a disappointing stay. Def. not worth the money we spent.
I'm sorry I wasn't able to cancel your reservation at the last minute due to one of your parties backing out. You indicated you would leave a bad review and you did. I would suggest collecting funds from the other party when making a reservation in the future or insure your trip. The housekeeper arrived to the condo late as another unit had been left in a horrible condition. She called in backup and was able to get this condo cleaned and ready for your occupancy at 4:45. I wish you would have not been mean to them. Tents and canopies are not permitted on the beach at Maravilla due to the safety of all vacationers. A strong gust of wind can send these flying through the air with the stakes attached and severely injure others. This policy appears in the 4th bullet point of the rental terms of this posting as well as the rental agreement you received 6 weeks prior to your stay. You informed the beach service staff that you were enjoying your vacation and I'm happy that you did. Dennis
Beach service of 2 chairs and 1 umbrella is included with this condo.
