About Karen Pittman

We, the owners, are Eddie and Karen Pittman. We reside in Villa Rica, GA and hope to one day retire and live in this area. Eddie is a teacher/coach and Karen is a Real Estate investor and property manager.

Karen Pittman purchased this condo in 2010

Why Karen Pittman chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We have come to this area for many years to vacation here. We feel our beach is the prettiest with its sugar-white sand that is not hot on your feet. We never tire of seeing dolphins in the ocean right in front of the condo. There are many restaurants to choose from, plenty of shopping and activities. The warmth of the sun and the gentle breeze is soothing and relaxing. The sound of the waves calls our names to come back year after year.

Fantastic Stay at 1301

  • 5 of 5

Over the years we have stayed at numerous Condos at Miramar Beach. We have stayed at various Maravilla units, some good, some OK and some not so hot. Out of all of them, I have to say that this one (Maravilla 1301) is the tops. We stayed with our 3 Grandkids, my daughter, son-in-law and our small dog. Everyone was in awe at the amenities, condition of the unit, closeness to the beach, views from the Patio, comfortableness of the beds and vast amounts of toys in the unit to enjoy on the beach. The Beach Umbrella and 4 Beach Chairs provided were very close to the water. My grandkids especially liked the pool near our unit. Some very good Restaurants were nearby, some easily within walking distant. My wife and I really enjoyed our daily walk to "Bad Ass Coffee Company" each morning for coffee and pastry. Shopping was readily available. Eglin AFB Military Museum was very close and full of air history. Arcades, rides and activities for the grandkids were minutes away via car. My wife and I are already planning a "Get Away" to this unit for ourselves when the grandkids are back in school.

Fun in the Sun!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time at the condo! The view from the patio is fantastic. The beds were comfortable, showers had good pressure, tastefull decor... all the amenities of home. We really appreciated the heated pool on the cooler days and the beach across the street on the warmer days. I highly recommend renting bikes from Coastal Cruisers because they drop off and pick up the bikes at the condo (we rented by the week). The sidewalks are bike friendly. We will definitely rent from Karen again when we visit the gulf area.

Great condo and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the condo and the furniture and decor was exactly as pictured. The location was wonderful. You could sit in the living room, master bedroom, or out on the balcony and see the gulf view. Less than 5 minute walk to the beach. Location is near restaurants, shopping, golf, etc. The owner, Karen was excellent to work with; she made everything so easy, excellent customer service.

Great stay again

  • 5 of 5

We rented this unit for the 2nd year in a row and it was just as great this time as the last. To our surprise, the master bath had been remodeled and there was new living room furniture. This unit has lots of toys in the closet and anything you would need in the kitchen. My only suggestion would be to bring more washcloths and towels unless you want to do laundry daily. This unit includes 4 complimentary beach chairs and 2 umbrellas so there is no need to have to cart extra chairs to the beach each day. Our deposit was returned the week we got home. Love this unit and can't wait for our next vacation!!!
