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.

Wonderful as always

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd winter in this condo and it is great. Close to the beach with a beach view from the patio. Condo is furnish very nicely with everything you would need in the kitchen. It really is home away from home. Walking distance to Pompono Joes, Kenny Ds and Captain Dave's, even Bad Ass Coffee. The owner is wonderful to work with and attentive to any needs you may have. Already looking forward to next year.

We had an Amazing time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Maravilla. It is close to the Bayville Wharf and The Harbor along with a couple outdoor shopping areas and an outlet mall. It was very easy to navigate around the area. The private beach was amazing, clean and a wonderful place to spend time with family over the holidays. Both pools were always clean and the heated pool was like getting into a nice warm bathtub so really you can swim any time of year. There are tennis courts and a basketball court so there is plenty to do to keep everyone entertained. Our Condo provided by Karen Pittman was as expected by the pictures posted on line and she is quick to respond to any needs or concerns you may have. The condo was easy to keep clean due to the rinse off showers by the front pool and all the floors in the condo are tile. We travel with a stick vacuum because our dog sheds terribly and I'm allergic to him however, the condo has a vacuum, dry dust mop and dust pads along with a mop and bucket in it. There were cleaning supplies and dish soap under the kitchen sink if needed and everything is well maintained. We took along our English Springer Spaniel who was bigger than they usually accept, however he is very well behaved and listens to commands well. He had a wonderful stay as well and loved the outdoor walking trails and sitting on the patio with us when we would eat. I am a very OCD germaphobe and after a few routine tasks on my part, I felt very comfortable in the condo. I look forward to going back next year and hope we can stay in the same condo again. Thank you Karen for making this a great comfortable vacation for us!

The property was clean, well stocked and comfortable. The view of the Gulf was beautiful.

  • 4 of 5

The overall property was well maintained and nighttime lighting was good when you have to take a dog out in the evening. We enjoyed being able to walk to many places.

Clean and nice location of Miramar Beach

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very clean and roomy. The description and pictures were accurate and it was a comfortable stay for us. The condo building was nondescript, a large parking lot in front of the buildings with minimal do not expect a resort type setting. However, if you want a clean spacious condo which offered a nice patio with a partial ocean view, and access to a very nice beach and don't expect a fancy resort then you will be happy.

A highlight was the area of Miramar Beach, a great sidewalk along the Gulf, perfect for morning strolls to get a cup of coffee at Bad Ass Coffee Company!

We keep returning every year.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second straight year in this great condo, and plan to book again for next year. Owner is so easy to work with, and the view is great and having 2 umbrellas and 4 chains is wonderful. Fast internet, and the beds are comfortable. Maravilla is so close to both eating and shopping, and being on Miramar Beach makes for less traffic.
