About Andy or Linda

Hi, we are Linda and Andy Johnson, owners of 3105 Maravilla. This photo was taken on the beach in front of the condo.

We live north of Atlanta, GA. We purchased the condo new and have done tons of upgrades. You will see the difference immediately -- the condo is clean, updated, and better-equipped than run-of-the mill rental units. We love to stay there ourselves as often as we can.

Why Andy or Linda chose Miramar Beach

Destin is one of the top upscale resort areas in the U.S. and Miramar Beach is one of the most popular family beach vacation locations in the Destin area -- convenient to shopping, dining and attractions, and since we front our own private gated beach the crowds are moderate, even during peak season.

What makes this condo unique

Maravilla is a perfect family resort property; its chief attraction is its huge private beach for owners and guests. The property also has 2 pools, free tennis courts, a clubhouse/workout room, and extensive walking/jogging/biking paths.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We got this nice note from a guest last summer:

"Dear Andy and Linda,

We enjoyed staying in your exquisite, immaculate condo in Maravilla. As you said, the Maravilla location is perfect for walking to the beach, dining and shopping. Thank you so much and I hope to be contacting you again for another week at Maravilla."

Excellent Condo and Owners

  • 5 of 5

We had a wounderful time. This is the second time we stayed at the Maravilla and love the location. As for our 3 year old son it was his first time to the beach, he loved it and didn't want to leave. It is located right accross the street from the beach and is a very short easy 2 min walk to get there. It is also a short walk to two wounderful restaurants, Captain Dave's and Pompano Joe's. (I recommend you try both.) Everything was exactly how it is pictured. The condo was very clean and neat. Andy was great to work with he was very quick to respond to any questions I had. I recommened this condo to anyone wanting to visit Destin. I have to add that the beach service is a big plus. It was so nice to walk down to the beach and already have your chairs there. Top notch condo, well done Andy and Linda. Thanks for letting us enjoy your let piece of paradise.

We had a great time at Maravilla. The condo was exactly as pictured and it suited our needs perfectly. The heated pool and jacuzzi were definitely an added bonus as the regular pool was too chilly this time of year. We also met so many nice families. We hope to stay here again. Loved the ground floor. No noise from other condos. Very close to everything Destin has to offer. Short walk to the beach. It was just a wonderful time.

Awesome Condo

  • 5 of 5

We have rented from the owners for several years. They respond quickly to questions,and maintain a beautiful spotless full functioning condo. The photos accurately show the condo, the first floor entrance is wonderful,and the beach is easy to access. The complex is safe, quiet and located in a wonderful area of Destin. A variety of activities are available for all ages to participate in, including parasailing, scooter rentals, outlet shopping and a multitude of restaurants. We look forward to our return!

Great Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

Four of us enjoyed a perfect Spring Break Week. After enduring another long, cold, and dark winter in the Chicago area, our stay at this property was what was needed to jump start us to a warm summer ahead.

The property fit our needs and did not disappoint.

Maravilla condo

  • 4 of 5

Photo of the condo indicated that the condo was on the beach not across a busy street, but not a big problem.

Very comfortable and clean, convenient to good restaurants. I would recommend this to others.

Owner's Response: We appreciate our guests' comments and regret they had the mistaken impression the condo is directly on the beach; our listing clearly describes it as Gulfview, not Gulffront, and includes an aerial photo showing the exact location -- about 75 steps to the beach gate.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! The condo is exactly as shown in the pictures and the walk to the beach was much shorter than we hoped, literally a very short two or three minute walk and you are on the beach. When we arrived everything was spotless, the beach is awesome, neighborhood is very safe. Parents with small children walking the private beach looking for sand crabs with no worries at night. We highly recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: Thanks! The convenient proximity to the beach -- about 75 steps from your front door to the beach gate -- is a big plus for this condo.
