We take the guessing out of booking a vacation rental home; our calendar is ALWAYS up-to-date! If this one is booked, be sure to check our other condo, right next-door. See VRBO listing #3755 and we also have another 2-bedroom in building #3, see VRBO #554900

Maravilla is the one of most popular family resorts in Destin! Our 2 bedroom is located in the very popular, family-friendly resort, Maravilla. It is open and airy with an extra-large balcony off the living room and master bedrooms. You will love the white sand beach that is just footsteps away.

You will be pleasantly surprised by all the 'extras' in our home that you would not normally find in a rental unit. No need to pack up your porta-crib, high chair, or sand toys, we have them all! Our large second floor condo is a great place for a family to use alone or to share with friends.

Master Bedroom and Bathroom

The Master suite has a King size bed with Egyptian cotton sheets, night stands, reading lamps, and HDTV. There is a sliding glass door with an attached balcony off the master bedroom. The sliding doors have custom room darkening drapes (so you can sleep in or take an afternoon nap while on your vacation). The attached full bathroom has a tub/shower combination, hair dryer and large fluffy bath towels.

The Second Bedroom and Bathroom

The 2nd bedroom has a Queen-size bed, with Egyptian cotton sheets, night stands, reading lamps, HDTV. The second bathroom is easily accessible from the hall and features a tub/shower combination, hair dryer and large fluffy bath towels.

Living Area

In our main living area we have a very comfortable queen size sofa sleeper, loveseat and side chair with reading lamps nearby. We also have an HDTV with digital cable channels, a DVD player and an iPod docking station stereo.

Kitchen and Dining Area

Our kitchen is also fully equipped with a coffee maker, a blender that will grind all of your ice for frozen drinks, and a toaster. Also we have more than 12 plates, glasses, forks, etc. so you don't have to wash your breakfast dishes before you eat lunch. And plenty of pots and pans so you can easily cook anything you need. The Dining area features a table and chairs and a breakfast bar with chairs.

Other Features Included

For your convenience, we also have a washer and dryer, and iron and ironing board. And if you would like to keep up with friends, family or work while you are away, we provide free high-speed internet and WIFI.

Also, to make your walk to the beach easy, we provide 2 beach chairs and an umbrella reserved and set up each day just for you. (Mar 15-Oct 15)

Lastly, our condos are pet friendly! Any size dogs are welcome (yes, that means we welcome even large dogs). The dog walking area is just outside our door. There is a $200 extra fee to bring your dog along and must be pre-approved by the owner.

Maravilla Resort Amenities

Maravilla is the one of the most popular family resorts in Destin. It’s a low-density resort (only 4 stories which means fewer people on the beach!) It has a 2-acre PRIVATE beach and plenty of green space for the kids to run and play safely. Maravilla also features two swimming pools (one heated), a hot tub, BBQ grills, tennis courts, shuffleboard, and a basket-ball hoop. Centrally located on Scenic Gulf Drive (near the outlet mall and Pompono Joe's), it is very close to local attractions, restaurants, and shopping.

Be sure to check our calendars because they are always up-to-date, if this one is booked, check our other condo, right next-door. See VRBO listing # 3755. Call or e-mail now for this lovely vacation rental.

About Tom and Christine

Hi,

We're Tom, Christine, Zachary our two dogs Trumpet and Piccolo. (People always ask--no dogs are not Golden Retrievers; they are Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers.)

Why Tom and Christine chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We purchased our condo in Destin because we wanted a place for our family to gather and build fond family memories. We love Maravilla so much that when the condo right next door came up for sale, we decided to purchase another one!

We live in Austin, Texas now (we bought our Marvailla Condo when we lived in Atlanta, GA.) While living in Atlanta we would visit Destin every chance we could. Now that we are much further away, we have to plan our trips. But are looking forward to retiring in Destin someday!

What makes this condo unique

While it may not be your deciding factor when you are choosing places to rent, you will appreciate it once you get here. Most everything you’ll need during your stay is here! Our guests who stay with us comment on how well equipped our condo is.

Because we live so far away, we take special care to make sure everything is in perfect condition.

It’s imperative that we have the best help there in Destin. We employ a housekeeper who only cleans for a couple of people. We do not use one of those massive cleaning companies who dash in and out of the condo in 15 minutes and call it clean. Our housekeeper takes hours to clean our condo (yes the cleaning fee is $10-$20 more than you’d pay with others but we ensure it’ll be really clean!)

Every time we visit our condo, we are constantly upgrading!

Come and stay with us and I can assure you’ll be happy!

I was under the impression that we had a gulf view. That was not the case.

  • 3 of 5

A good location. But wrong unit in complex. Would have liked to have more of an ocean view.

Owner's Response: Okay I can take honest feedback but when this guest booked and asked me if this condo had a view, she was told no. I told her I had other condos with awesome views but she did not like the prices of the ones with the views ( just as the ones with views cost more to purchase, they cost more to rent). She wanted the cheaper condo. If you're the person who wants a very nice, affordable condo, that is really close to the beach, but don't care about the views because you'd rather spend your time ON the beach than spend your money for a condo to look at the beach, then this is the right condo for you.

Not really worth the spectacular proce

  • 2 of 5

Unit looks like photos so that was nice. The room with the queen is incredibly tiny. There were zero bath rugs or entry rugs or even a small rug by the master bed. If you came in with damp feet it was easy to slip. The bathrooms were also treacherous after someone showered because all there was was a bath floor towel. The sound between units was pretty loud as well. And the beach is extremely crowded. I was under the impression from photos and description that it wouldn't be as crowded. Umbrellas are positioned close together and about 5 deep so not much of a view. I had high hopes. I'll keep looking for a beach!

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you did not enjoy your week in our condo. This is a contradiction to what most of our guests tell us. As for rugs, there are supposed to be rugs in that condo. I checked with my housekeepers and they said the previous guests had dogs that shed terribly and they could not get them cleaned to their liking so they pulled them out to send them off to be professionally cleaned. I wish you would have called us because we have some other rugs in our owner's closet (that don't match our current decor but could have worked for you). As for the beach. Maravilla has a huge, private beach which, of course, during the summer does have a lot of people on it but it is NOTHING compared to the public beaches where you literally cannot find a place to sit. At least at Maravilla, with our condos you get reserved space with 2 chairs and a huge umbrella set up each day for you.

Really pretty, conveniently located, family friendly condo

  • 4 of 5

Loved the fact that it was family friendly. We have a 5 month old and just having the pack n' play made a big difference for us.

The condo is nicely decorated and fully equipped for a long stay.

They were nice enough to give us a call when ready for an early checkout.

Just a couple of things to improve in our opinion. we got charged a cleaning fee but the place was not 100% clean when we got there. Cleaning team just looked at the obvious things but it was very dusty underneath the bed and furniture, the floor was sandy (and we understand that sand from the beach comes in) but if you are paying for a cleaning fee... oh well.

Other than that, we loved the place.

Nice place

  • 5 of 5

Very nice pet friendly place, with some cute details (the Picketfence headboard in the master bedroom, for instance). The kitchen was more than adequately stocked, and I really appreciated some of the left-behinds--like salt, plastic wrap, foil. The large condo grounds were sort of institutional, but other pet owners were also considerate, so it was clean. It was expensive, but otherwise very good experience.
