SHERRY AND JIM MCDANIEL ---- and our schnauzer Pepper #2. We are the founders of Pet Friendly in Destin, Florida. We bought our first rental property in 1992 after meeting a lady on the street while walking our pet She began to tell us: 'she missed her pet so bad that she was going to go home'. We went condo shopping the next day. Bought a condo, joined VRBO 1997, developed Destin Pet Friendly Rentals: The rest is history. There were few, if any, rentals by owners, we taught many how to be successful by managing their property and to welcome pets.

Jim and Sherry McDaniel purchased this condo in 1992

WE bought our first vacation property in 1988, having always loved the absolute beauty and friendly atmosphere of Destin . Having to leave Destin, to return home, became more and more of a challenge, in 2000 we built a home in Regatta Bay and moved here. In 2009 we moved closer to our condos to better service them , now residing at Avalon Beach Estates.

When we first saw the construction for Maraviila begin in 1995, we signed up preconstruction to purchase two units. We watched the entire resort being built, became active board and committee members and have remained owners and promoters of MARAVILLA as being the most popular family oriented complex in Destin, with the largest and most beautiful private beach.

Unit 2106, being a ground floor unit affords you the option of walking out your front door directly to the pool, grills and the beach, and also with a view of the Gulf. We have a patio furnished with bistro table, two chase lounges and ceiling fan for those warm July days. Sit back , read a book, sun bath and watch your children play on the front lawn or swim in the pool.

2106 is next to the portico, convenient for loading and unloading your luggage. There is also a bike rack in the portico. And you park right at your front door.

Maravilla 2106, ground floor, is located in the Gulfront Building #2, walk straight out the door onto the crosswalk to the gate for Maravilla.

Great condo and so cute. Nicely appointed and all the necessities needed to cook in if needed, they even had some basic condiments (salt, pepper, spices, etc). Perfect location and you walk right out the door and take the steps down to the beach. It is nice to be oceanfront without all the sand blowing in and the walk across the street is super easy. The complex is well maintained although there is some repair construction going on currently. The only drawback to this unit might be the size of the 2nd bedroom. It was not an issue for us as we had two teenagers whom were rarely in there but the size might be an issue for a couple needing to move around more or store clothing. We met Jim and Sherry on move in and they were very nice. Very helpful on pet friendly locations and tips for dinner. The condo is great if you bring a dog and super convenient to walk straight out the sliding door for those morning walks. The only thing I can think of that was missing from the unit was a mop for the tile floors. We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: We were inspecting our condo when guest arrived and had a nice visit. We live 1/2 mile from our condo, so usually see many of our guest and enjoy sharing any helpful info with them. Thanks for the tip on the mop, as we had removed the old one for a new one.

Awesome Condo!

This condo was everything the description described. It was clean, kitchen was well equipped, and the beach access was wonderful. Plenty of linens available. The condo is quick access to the main road that goes through Destin as well as many of the great restaurants. The mall is close as well. We left the condo in the manner in which Jim and Sherry stated in the rental agreement and was refunded our deposit with no problems. The owners are very accessible, I had to email Jim when I got there, and he responded promptly. This condo is well worth the money, very comfortable and the beach access is awesome!

Owner's Response: Two couples, plus their small 4 legged grandchild, had a wonderful week in this ground floor condo. Yes, condo was in great condition on their departure. Hope they will return in the near future. A bad day in Destin is better than a good day in most other places.

This condo fit our needs perfectly! My husband, sister and myself enjoyed 2 weeks in this unit. It was beautifully decorated and very clean. There was great access to the beach, being on the ground floor. We couldn't have asked for better people to deal with. If the occasion presents itself we would rent from them again.
