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!

Great place to stay with the family.

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed several times at Barbara's condo and me and my family love it every time. I cannot begin to thank her enough for the memories that she has allowed us to create in being so reasonable with her cost for the condo. It has everthing you need and more. The beach is just across the street. 2 swimming pool areas and a basketball court that the boys love. I look forward to next year!

View, facilities and Stay was GREAT!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great time by all attendees. Condo was nice with plenty of room for everyone. TVs in all rooms and anything you need to cook with was provided. We also had toys for the children to play with at the beach. Close to restaurants and the beach just by walking. Golf in all directions.

Neat and clean, but a little noisy at times

  • 4 of 5

My friend and I enjoyed staying in your condo for three nights, August 1-4. The location was very convenient for beach access and within walking distance to Pompano Joe's, one of my favorite Destin restaurants. The condo was very neat and clean. There were only two negative issues: one was the small size of the guest bedroom, although my friend did not really complain about it. Second, we had some noisy neighbors overhead. At times. it sounded like someone was bouncing a basketball: at others it sounded like they were rolling bowling balls across the floor. Of course this is certainly not your fault and any other time it could have been much quieter neighbors above us.

There was one other issue we encountered. I never could get the sliding door to open onto the balcony.

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.
