Why Richard & Lisa Bailey chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We have been vacationing at Maravilla since 2001. The area is dear to hearts as this is where we got engaged! We are sure you will fall in love with the area also. Maravilla is a wonderful family friendly and relaxing condominium community. This resort complex is unique in that there is a lot of green space for kids to play and to walk your dog! With its nearby restaurants, shopping and beautiful white sand beaches this is a excellent location that is central to all of the Destin area!

Love staying here!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay at this property. It has easy access to the beach and beach chairs and umbrella reserved, which is very important to us. They also have extra chairs and umbrella and beach toys if needed. The condo is well decorated with anything you might need. They have thought of everything! We love this property, because they allow pets, and everyone with pets are considerate, keeping everything clean. The property is walking distance to a few restaurants and very close to the grocery strore. We hope to stay here again in the future. Thank you very much for letting us rent from you again.

Spring Break 2016 - Family Vaca with 3 Children - Best Condo & Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

When planning our family vacation to Destin, we weren’t sure where to stay – SO glad we chose this condo! Everything about it was perfect. The condo was the perfect size for our family of 5 (kids ages 8, 6 and 3). Loved how close we were to the beach (can view it from the balcony), kids loved the heated pool, loved the large balcony, loved having the washer & dryer in unit and kitchen to be able to make family meals, enjoyed the walking paths along the ocean, loved the family friendly atmosphere of the complex. We truly appreciated the interaction we had with Rich, who was very responsive for any questions that came up. We plan to make this an annual family trip and absolutely, 100%, this is the condo we’ll stay at!!! Thank you for sharing your home with us - we will be back!!! If anyone is searching for the perfect Destin condo getaway like we were, look no further, this place is the BEST!

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Rich and Lisa's condo! The location was great and we enjoyed the view from the balcony! The condo was spacious and we particularly liked the Keurig and washer/dryer that came with the condo. Everything that we could possible need was provided for us. The owners were extremely responsive when we had questions, and even called to check on us, to make sure we were ok. I highly recommend this condo!

Perfect Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Rich and Lisa,

My husband, daughter and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to stay! The condo was well equipped, very, very clean and comfortable! All communication was extremely prompt! Not only were there extras like beach chair and toys but they were all in perfect condition! Having the private beach and 2 beach chair service at the beach was great! Because we brought our dog we thought accommodations would be limited but with or without a pet we would have been thrilled to stay at your condo. We also appreciate that no extra cost applied for having our dog. He was so happy to be on vacation with the family. Not only was the condo very nice but the complex as well, we saw several dogs but everyone very considerate about cleaning up after their pets.

We are happy to give an excellent rating!!

Kind Regards,

Connie, Thom, Victoria and Tuk

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

Lisa and Rick, we absolutely loved our stay in your condo. It was so tastefully decorated, had so many little special touches, (from light switches being labeled, to Keurig, and even cleaning supplies). Most importantly, it was so very clean. We visit the Destin area 1-3 times a year and have stayed in several other condos in the same complex, I must say this was by far one of the nicest and cleanest condo! We look forward to renting your place again next year!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from our week in Destin in this unit and couldn't have been happier. We've stayed at Maravilla the past couple of years, but never stayed in a unit as nice as this one. The decor and "extras" (sun umbrella, sand buckets, cooler, etc.) really made us feel at home. The unit was very clean and has great access to the beach. Awesome place that we hope to stay at again! Thank you!
