This house is the second home of the owners who live in New Orleans. Renting this property is very different from a small roomed condo, it is an independent house with a two car carport and with a view of the pool and tennis courts from the back porch and amenities in place for the owners and also their guests who come back each year. Read the reviews, no one has left without a glowing testimonial.
Maravilla is a gated community with tennis courts, basketball goal , 2 swimming pools, hot tub and a clubhouse with an exercise room.
This upscale home is tastefully decorated, gourmet kitchen, granite countertops, breakfast bar, 52 in. cable television, surround sound system with speakers throughout the house.
The great room has a spectacular view through the loggia, wall-to-wall glass doors and windows. The office has a daybed with an Apple computer and internet/wifi access. The master bedroom suite has a king size bed, walk-in closet, granite double sinks, jacuzzi tub and a large shower with double shower heads.
Outside the kitchen is a deck with a gas grill for outside cooking and an outside shower where you can wash off when you come back from the beach. The beach is approximately one and a half blocks from the back door, through the gated community.
The second floor has two bedrooms and a full bath, with an outside deck to privately sun. One bedroom has a queen size bed with a flat screen television/VCR/DVD combo. The other bedroom has two twin size beds and a flat screen television/VCR/DVD and radio/cassette/CD player.

Here we are enjoying our anniversary at Galatoire's, a fine New Orleans restaurant. Destin rivals New Orleans for reasonably priced upscale fine restaurants close to our house.
Peter Michell purchased this house in 2000
my wife and I dated in college and then we went different directions with different people until we found each other in 1995 and were married. We always loved Destin, having stayed at the old Frangista Motel in 1968, and we dreamed of having a place of our own there and in 2000 we made it happen. She retired in 2003 and I did in 2008 and we love sharing the house with good people who enjoy their stay.
the house is not a typical rental because it has all of the extras of our second home. My wife is a great decorator and I have all the electronic stuff to make it interesting. It is a kick back place very near but not too close to the tennis courts, club house with exercise room and the swimming pool.
We vacationed at this rental in just a couple weeks ago & I can't even begin to describe how beautiful this home was when we arrived. The owner, Peter Mitchell was very accommodating & so easy to get in touch with. This home was so comfortable & had everything we needed & so much more. It is so spacious & bright with lots of beautiful windows. There is a very well landscaped yard & plenty of parking, even a carport. We brought along our golf cart which really came in handy riding to the beach & throughout the Maravilla resort area which is so pretty. We would definitely stay here again plus it's a great area with lots of very close restaurants & a gorgeous beach with powdery white sand. After 8 days of vacationing in this magnificent home we were so sad to leave but we did make some unforgettable memories! Thanks to The Mitchell's for renting their beautiful home to our family!

Beautiful Home! Comfort and Convenience. We stayed from June 25 - July 2, 2016 @ 8 AM. Family of 5 Adults, we all Loved the home and location . Peter the Owner is a Charm to rent from, very helpful and informative.
We just concluded the most wonderful vacation! The home is FABULOUS , and honestly, the pics don't do it justice!! There was 8 of us, and we had plenty of room to move around and do our own thing. The living area/kitchen is all an open area, which was perfect while cooking/eating/socializing! The large table was a plus for us, not only for meals, but also lots of family games of Dominos,Yahtzee and Sequence! We never lacked for anything...the house is fully equipped and beautifully decorated. The walk to the beach was not bad, but I highly recommend a beach wagon or cart if you have lots of stuff to carry! The back porch was super nice and very pleasant at night with its 2 fans. The kids, ages 21,21,17,16,14 and 11 really liked the speaker/sound system in each room and on the porch and upper deck! I just can't say enough good things!! We are already planning(in our heads) our next vacay there! The only downer was that we had to leave and come back to reality!
A beautiful home. Very clean and well kept. Amazing backyard & porch for kids to play and fly kites in. For those who like to cook out the gas grill is a nice feature. Great access to beach with just a short little stroll. Our family enjoyed every minute we were there!
This property was exceptional and a great value for our first trip to Destin. The home is beautiful, comfortable and best of all you have all the amentities you could possibly want. Close to the beach, shopping, Harborside Village, attractions, you name it! Loved the ability to cook in when we wanted and sit on the back deck in the morning as we prepared for the day or evening after a wonderful day at the beach. The owners are wonderful and provided coupons and information to help make our trip exciting. The location is wonderful, easy to get in and out of, quiet and best of all we felt so safe with our surroundings. You cannot go wrong renting this home! e will definitely return to this amazing place!!!
Absolutely beautiful home (feel like you are at home and not at a rental house). Everything you could possibly ask for. Beautiful back deck to enjoy your morning coffee. Close to the pool, tennis, courts and beach. Private Maravilla entrance to the beach. Beach chairs and umbrellas waiting for you every morning. Couldn't ask for anything more. The PERFECT place to rent.
