Relaxation at it's finest!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Mara's for a week and it couldn't have been more perfect.

The resort is peaceful, clean and safe and there are many things to do - mini-golf, tennis, the gym and more. There are 2 pools and they are well kept and very clean and the bar is oh, so handy for an afternoon cocktail or snack. We only used the pool a couple of times and it wasn't crowded and the loungers were plentiful. We took advantage of the beach and walked and relaxed on it every day, you can walk for miles on the soft, white sand and only see a handful of people; it was just what we needed.

The photos don't do the apartment justice, it is tastefully decorated and has everything you could ever need whilst staying there, even down to reading glasses!! There is plenty of space and the beds were very comfortable. The uninterupted view is amazing to wake up to. The cooking equipment available was as though you were at home and the welcome basket was generous and thoughtfully chosen.

I would highly recommend Mara's apartment, from communications to local recommendations, to just checking that you are ok and have everything you need, you could not be in better hands. See you next year and thank you!!

Wonderful setting for a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay, and Mara is truly a kind and gracious host! Mara was very accommodating to our requests and very responsive to any questions we had. The recommendations she provided for local restaurants and events were all spot-on! The condo itself was great -- more than enough space in the master bedroom/bath and the 2nd bedroom for our two daughters; very functional kitchen with all the tools/gadgets you'd need; and the breathtaking views from the balcony were a great way to start the day! We spent most of our time at the two pools, and the bar area was very convenient for a cool drink or a quick lunch. The beach was fantastic as well -- great sand, and plenty of space to roam. Overall, our entire family had a great time, and would recommend this place! Thank you, Mara!

Awesome condo in Destin!

  • 5 of 5

This two-bedroom , 2 bath condo is in a clean, upscale, beautiful property. The condo is immaculate and is stocked with beach necessities, fully stocked kitchen (even has all the little things you usually have to buy for one week. i.e. salt and pepper, olive oil, coffee filters, etc..

Mara is a fabulous host. She checks in through out the week and if you have a question, she gets right back to you. You can't go wrong staying here!

Great Stay in Destin

  • 5 of 5

The views were amazing! The unit was just as it looked in the pictures. It was clean and well-maintained.

Mara was great! Very attentive and easily accessible via text. We loved our stay and definitely recommend to anyone wanting to stay on the beach! Location was close to restaurants, shopping mall and grocery store. Anything you need is within a few short miles of the condo.

My first time in the area. we loved Mara's condo.

  • 5 of 5

I cannot think of one thing we would have needed that the condo did not have. Checking in was easy. The condo's location allows for a great view of the ocean and the pools. No streets to cross to get to the beach. Mara has beach chairs, umbrella, toy and more. We drove there and we brought in a lot more than what we needed because Mara's condo provides so many things for a great vacation. The location is also perfect, close enough to Walmart and Publix and a short drive to Destin. The hotel even has shopping carts to get your groceries to your condo. Thanks Mara.

Awesome Again!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year to stay at this condo. It was just as awesome as the first time! The weather was perfect, and the water was the clearest and calmest we have seen it. From the balcony, we had the perfect location to watch the fireworks on the beach. We also enjoyed the singers by the pool a couple of nights and the karaoke and hula hoop competition. The condo was well stocked and had everything we needed. The Home Away App was a big help with recommendations for restaurants and such. We went to the Surf Hut one night, and the food was delicious! We definitely want to stay here again next year. Thanks again Mara and family!
