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 the run-of-the mill rental unit. We love to stay there ourselves as often as we can.

Why Andy or Linda chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

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."

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.

Thanks

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.

A great place to relax and unwind

  • 5 of 5

We were quite thrilled when we walked through the doors to this lovley condo, it was just as described if not better. The condo was beautifully decorated and very well maintained (which I have found to be a problem in previous condo rentals in the past). Everything you needed for your stay and the updated kitchen made it fun to cook meals for my family. The washer/dryer was a big plus, I don't know about some families, but the idea of going on vacation and coming home to do a weeks worth of laundry is depressing. This just made it easier to unpac once home. The ground floor access was wonderful, especially having younger children in tow. The beach was within a 5 minute walk and more beautiful then the pictures shown, you could literally see the water from the patio. It was also nice having daily access to the 2 beach chairs and umbrella that were provided at the beach. The very first night here, it was amazing to just open the patio screen door and sit and listen to the wind rustling the palm trees outside, RELAXING!

The owners kept in contact via email before our trip and sent a very helpful infomation pack and were available to answer any questions we had before hand. The property is easily located and there are tons of things to do around town. Lots of restaraunts, shopping, grocery stores, etc...

Loved our trip and would want to rent this unit again in the future. Worst part of the trip was having to pack up and go home! Highly recommend!
