About Jim and Sherry McDaniel

Jim and Sherry McDaniel were the pioneers of Pet Friendly Condos in Destin in 1992. We have grown a lot since our first pet friendly endeavor, and have introduced many, many friends and acquaintances to the wonderful aspects of renting to families who travel with their pets. We were also one of VRBO's first customers in the Destin area, back when we could actually talk with David and Lynn (the former owners of VRBO). Jim is a local Realtor , Re/Max Paradise , and we reside next door to our properties, so as to best serve our tenants needs. Our business was built on trust and friendship. Please give us a call for your next rental. You will find our Destin Fl Rentals are all 5 star properties.

Jim and Sherry McDaniel purchased this condo in 1996

Why Jim and Sherry McDaniel chose Scenic Gulf Drive Central

We have owned a second home in Destin since 1988. I was driving past Maravilla when it was being constructed, 1995, stopped at the sales office and bought a condo . I have served on the board at Maravilla and have promoted it as the best 'family-oriented complex' in Destin, and for it to be truly family oriented, the pets needed to be welcomed also. Hence, here we are!! Our success has been built on trust and a desire to provide each and every vacationer a wonderful place to call their home away from home.

What makes this condo unique

Our 3rd floor corner unit, Maravilla 2301, is a beautiful unit, nautical decor, very nicely furnished and upgraded each year, 90% of our vacationers are repeat visitors, and we like to provide them with something a little different from their last visit. Oh, also we have another awesome GulfFront View condo, located in bldg. #2, the GulfFront building. It is a ground floor condo.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Last minute reservation due to a health cancellation. Very kind and appreciative guest and visited with them a couple of times. Should except to see them more often on return visits.

Our all around favorite vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time renting this particular unit, and I doubt that we would choose anything in its place. What a comfortable, pleasant, and fun home away from home. Our Jazzy loves, loves, loves people watching from the balcony and, of course, is way too interested in other canines and barks to the point we are forced to physically remove her to the inside. Jim and Sherry (and Pepper) are wonderful and keep the condo updated and well equipped. We want for nothing! We look forward to our next visit.

Owner's Response: We met the family and also visited with them several times as they walked their dog. It is interesting that we had rented to their daughter and son in law years ago, then missed contact with them, and then they started renting from us again. WE look forward to all family members renting from us in the future. Sherry and Jim

Another GREAT stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We are in Kentucky now as we speak about to enter into good old IN! We miss Florida already! One of our favorite parts of going to Florida is the beach and this lovely condo! The beautiful teals and greens make you feel at home! Things are constantly updated.. And pleasing to those who stay there! Thank you so much for booking us! Looking forward to next year already and we just left this morning!!!! :) excited to see the balcony finished.. So the dogs can look out!!! What we love about this condo is the security, that our dogs are welcome, it's very close to malls, food, and family fun! There are 4 of us so the double set of beach chairs makes it nice for all of us to enjoy the beach... Together! See you next year!!!

Owner's Response: We met the family on their last day and were very pleased with their comments. They are the first guest in this condo after remodeling both bathrooms and upgrading televisions. Unfortunately the balcony was having some repair work and not usable, but guest never complained. We look forward to their return in the future.

We are on our way back to TN and already talking about our next visit. We loved this unit. Very well equipped and location was great. There was 4 of us and 2 dogs. Loved being able to bring our fur babies. Spare bedroom was a little small but was manageable. Will be booking here again soon. Thanks for all the details that aren't thought about in other places we have stayed.

Beautiful Beach, Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

Destin is absolutely beautiful and our stay in this condo was by far the best rental condo we've stayed in. Fully equipped kitchen was decorated so beautifully. The beach chair/umbrella setup everyday was a joy. We were so thankful that our dog Harley was welcome, she loved people and bird watching from the balcony. It's too bad she couldn't enjoy the waves, but she did love the wide walkway surrounded by large grass area. Maravilla seems to be a pet friendly resort as there was always a new friend for Harley to meet. We will be returning soon. Thanks again!

Owner's Response: We met the family while they were here and also met Harley. This military family has visions of moving to our area after retirement. They would be welcomed as this is a military retiree area.

Best Week in Destin In Years

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with condo. Very tastefully decorated and updated. Location and view were exceptional!! Beach could have not been any better. Having beach umbrella and chairs set up everyday was a blessing. Owner lives close by and we saw him almost daily. Great guy!! Making plans for next year already. Almost forgot most important thing!! Four legged friend, Tucker, was pleased too!! He loved people watching from balcony!!

Owner's Response: Met "Tucker" and he seemed very pleased. He had made reservations last year but was only a couple of months old and needed to mature before he brought his parents with him. His two legged parents have already reserved for a September week in 2016. All very nice and we look forward to seeing them in 2016.

Simply Awesome

  • 5 of 5

We have rented from these wonderful owners in the past with 100% satisfaction. Stunning views of the beach and very clean. Had everything we needed. Our dog Aubie enjoyed sitting by slidding door "people watching" off the balony. This unit is steps from the elevator and stairs. We will rent again

Owner's Response: We appreciate our repeat customers and especially the fact we allow their four legged canine family member to join them. Why would we allow a family to leave behind the one that has unconditional love? We hope to see them next year.
