About Jim and Sherry McDaniel, Destin Florida Condos and Rentals

SHERRY AND JIM MCDANIEL ---- and our schnauzer Pepper #2. We are the founders of Pet Friendly in Destin, Florida. We bought our first rental property in 1992 after meeting a lady on the street while walking our pet She began to tell us: "'she missed her pet so bad that she was going to go home". We went condo shopping the next day. Bought a condo, joined VRBO 1997, developed Destin Pet Friendly Rentals: The rest is history. There were few, if any, rentals by owners, we taught many how to be successful by managing their property and to welcome pets.

Jim and Sherry McDaniel, Destin Florida Condos and Rentals purchased this condo in 1992

Why Jim and Sherry McDaniel, Destin Florida Condos and Rentals chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

WE bought our first vacation property in 1988, having always loved the absolute beauty and friendly atmosphere of Destin . Having to leave Destin, to return home, became more and more of a challenge, in 2000 we built a home in Regatta Bay and moved here. In 2009 we moved closer to our condos to better service them , now residing at Avalon Beach Estates next to Maravilla.

When we first saw the construction for Maraviila begin in 1995, we signed up preconstruction to purchase two units. We watched the entire resort being built, became active board and committee members and have remained owners and promoters of MARAVILLA as being the most popular family oriented complex in Destin, with the largest and most beautiful private beach.

What makes this condo unique

Unit 2106, being a ground floor unit , affords you the option of walking out your front door directly to the pool, grills and the beach, and also with a view of the Gulf. We have a patio furnished with bistro table, two chase lounges and ceiling fan for those warm July days. Sit back , read a book, sun bath and watch your children play on the front lawn or swim in the pool.

2106 is next to the portico, convenient for loading and unloading your luggage. There is also a bike rack in the portico. And you park right at your front door.

Maravilla 2106, ground floor, is located in the Gulfront Building #2, walk straight out the door onto the crosswalk to the gate for Maravilla.

Great Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this unit August 20-27 and it was perfect! The unit was clean and just as the pictures showed. We loved the pool being just a few steps from the patio. We used the beach service that is included with the rental (and yes, we remembered to tip the attendant!) Maravilla is so convenient to everything....the shops, restaurants, etc. We really enjoyed our stay and so did Lizzie and Lucy, our 2 little Boston Terriers!!!

Relaxing Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time including our dog Sophie. Great location. The condo is clean and well maintained. Could not ask for an easier access to the beach. Having the beach set up everyday waiting on you just adds to the relaxation. Access to restaurants etc just a short walk or bike away. We will definately rent this property again.

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful trip to Mirimar Beach!

Maravilla 2016 was a perfect pet friendly and family location.

We enjoyed walking along the path, relaxing at the beach, and swimming in the pool right outside our door!!!! Perfect Spot!
