About Barb Garlow

Hi, I'm Barb, the condo owner. I retired in 2010 and moved to Destin as a full-time resident. I love everything about the area, the beautiful beaches, great restaurants, lots of shopping and all kind of fun things to do. In my photo, you can see the beautiful sunset behind me while I'm dining at Pompano Joe's just right down the road from Maravilla. Come join us in Florida!

Barb Garlow purchased this condo in 2005

Why Barb Garlow chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We have the most beautiful beaches in the world!

What makes this condo unique

We are pet friendly. You can walk to a great local beach restaurant - Pompano Joe's (that's where my picture was taken!). Our beach service guy and his crew are very friendly and will set you up with chairs and umbrella for the week!

Beautiful view and very nice condo

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from our stay at Maravilla. We had a wonderful time. The location is great. There is a great view from the patio and the breeze coming off the ocean makes it the perfect spot to wind down each evening. The condo was nice. Everything you need is provided with dishes, towels, sheets for the couch bed, and stuff for the beach. We had a small problem with the toilet not flushing well while there, but as soon as it was mentioned to the owner she was on it. She was very easy to work with and made the rental process extremely easy and enjoyable. Would definitely stay again.

Awesome condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Destin at this Maravilla property. The condo had absolutely everything we needed and just steps away from the beach. Especially enjoyed having coffee on the desk every morning while viewing the ocean. I would highly recommend staying here. The owner was organized and responded very quickly to emails. Thanks for the opportunity to enjoy this great place and have a relaxing vacation!

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

Condo was in a great location, easily accessible to the beach and several restaurants. The view off the balcony was great of the Gulf. Wonderful to have beach service available with an umbrella and two chairs. Plus, Barb supplied two more chairs in her condo for our use. Kitchen was fully stocked with every utensil needed along with coffee too! Facilities within the complex were always clean and kept up well. Would highly recommend staying here to anyone for the location plus the low cost to rent. Plus Barb was very easy to work with too.

Comfortable and Clean

  • 5 of 5

This condo met all of our expectations. It was clean and very well stocked with everything we needed. Great ocean view from condo and beach access right across the street. Barb was very friendly and very easy to work with. We would rent it again when we are in the area.

Family Friendly, Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo and very family friendly! Barb was wonderful to work with. We got into Destin early Saturday and called her to see if there was anyway we could check in early and she checked to see if the condo was ready and called us right back to let us know that we could go away and check in. The condo was so close to the beautiful beach and we really enjoyed our vacation.
