About Jim and Sherry McDaniel, Destin Florida Condos and Rentals

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, Destin Florida Condos and Rentals purchased this condo in 1992

Why Jim and Sherry McDaniel, Destin Florida Condos and Rentals chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

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 next to Maravilla.

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Relaxing Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time including our dog Sophie. Great location. The condo is clean and well maintained. Could not ask for an easier access to the beach. Having the beach set up everyday waiting on you just adds to the relaxation. Access to restaurants etc just a short walk or bike away. We will definately rent this property again.

Another Amazing Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Great unit, clean and oh so comfortable! This was our third trip and our first for our 2.5yr old which made me nervous but all was great! The condo is the perfect location with quick access to the beach and pool, we spent half the day at the beach and the other half at the pool. Toys and boogie boards were there in the condo for us to use and we did! It was also a great opportunity to teach the little ones (7 and 2 almost 3) how to respect and take care of others property not just in the Condo and the toys that were provided but in the hotels we stayed in on our way to the beach(12hr drive), and how to take care of/respect the beach and nature so we can continue to enjoy it for years to come. Took the kiddos out to the Harbor one night for a cruise on a pirate ship and that was Awesome!!! The kids really enjoyed all there was to do on the Harbor, mirror maze, arcades, lego building store just really wonderful! Shopped at WinDixie after we arrived, just down the street from the condo and all I needed to prepare 3 meals a day for my family was available in the condo, pots and pans, utensils, measuring spoons, microwave, oven and a coffee pot! Hopefully the only thing we left behind were tiny finger prints on the glass from the kiddos starring out into the ocean at 7am waiting for Mom and Dad to hurry up and race them to the beach!

Owner's Response: In addition to the comments our guest left, they failed to mention that their 7 year old daughter propelled the Harbor Walk Climbing wall in two minutes, rang the bell, and kicked out and propelled down just like an experienced climber. We love it when our guest stay busy and take in all the activities that our area provides. Plus we have the most beautiful beaches and water in the USA.. Can't wait till these guest return.
