About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Welcome to Paradise! Destin, Florida, is located in the Northwest Panhandle and home to the most beautiful beaches on The Emerald Gulf Coast. Located within close proximity to both NWFL Regional Airport in Ft. Walton and the NWFL Beaches International Airport located near Panama City, Maravilla is the most popular family-oriented resort in Destin. We are a gated community with a large interior parking lot that includes a portico for loading/unloading, as well as 2 tennis courts, basketball court, shuffleboard, two pools (1 heated for fall/winter vacationing), hot tub, workout facility and bike racks. In addition, there is a clubhouse available for rental for your private parties or gatherings. There is plenty of green space for the children to run and play safely, as well as a pet potty area, and most importantly, we have a 2.5 acre private beach which is the largest private beach in the area. For large groups, if rented far enough in advance, the condo next door also sleeps 8 & so could be rented simultaneously to enjoy the close proximity. Our 3 bedroom unit has the largest floor plan available. It has recently been professionally decorated with a Tuscan-Style Décor, fully tiled & ready for you, your friends, your kids or small pet to enjoy. The master has a beautiful new tiled shower with a matching mirror. Your "home away from home" is open and airy and has a 40 ft. balcony located off the Living Area as well as off the Master Suite. We offer 4 beach chairs & 2 umbrellas FREE per day during busy season for your enjoyment, as well as cable & wifi.

The fully-equipped kitchen has cherry cabinets, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and ceramic tile floor. The coffee maker and blender will come in handy for hot and cold beverages and there is plenty of plates/bowls, silverware, glasses, pots/pans and cooking utensils so you don’t need to bring a thing! There is a washer/dryer and iron/ironing board for your convenience.

There are two Master Suites both with a King Size bed, HDTV flat screen, DVD and private full bath. We provide custom drapery with black out liners for those that prefer to sleep in.

The bunkroom is a perfect space for the children to unwind from a day at the beach watching a movie or reading a book on the twin bunk beds, although the extra thick mattresses accommodate most adults easily and comfortably.

The Living Area has a sofa that will provide additional sleep space for two, if need be. The HDTV Flat screen and DVD is great for keeping up with all the sporting events, movies and news stories that you seem to miss at home. In addition, we also provide WiFi Internet Service for your computer/tablet/etc.

Of course, sitting on the balcony having your morning coffee and reading the paper or enjoying a cold beverage after a fun day in the sun enjoying the view, is always paradise as you smell the fresh sea air!

Lastly, during high season (March – October), we provide you with 4 beach chairs and and 2 umbrellas for your pleasure. We have the best beach service manager in Destin and he will make sure your stay is pleasurable. Our third floor unit is near the corner of Building One so is just steps away from sugar white beaches where you can see your toes in the emerald green waters and enjoy the smell of the sea. Just steps away are miles of sidewalk that parallel the beach for great views while exercising. Several on-the-beach restaurants are within walking distance awaiting your visit for extra fun.

About Kim Dillon

John & I live in Huntsville, Alabama, where he grew up, while I grew up in North Georgia near Rome. For you Atlanta folks, my side of the family primarily lives there in Atlanta. For you Texans, John's family lives in North Dallas. For you Carolina folk, my grandparents were from there, while for you northerners, John's extended family lives in Wisconsin. I guess it's just a small world. :)

Kim Dillon purchased this condo in 2012

Why Kim Dillon chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

When an owner such as myself manages the rentals on their property, you the vacationer, get much better service & homespun hospitality. My sister owns the condo right next door; you could rent both for large parties. The view got us, too; step out on the patio & the gorgeous view weaves its magic. Not all condos have a beach view! If you were to get too much sun, you could still enjoy the beach from the patio while enjoying a good book or cold beverage. Our newly redecorated condo is very near the corner of our building nearest the beach, so much so that if you open the patio door you can hear the waves. It also gets the morning sun, which you can enjoy before you hit the beach, instead of having to deal with the hot afternoon sun after you get back from the beach. We just put in new tiled floors, to help make your stay that much more convenient & easy, not to mention beautiful. The 3 bedrooms help each to have some space of their own while on vacation, & if you have kids with you, the bunkroom is perfect for their quiet time part of the day. I left some movies & novels for you, to help you get away from it all. The kitchen is beautifully efficient with both the beauty of its granite countertops & the efficiency of being fully stocked with the appliances you may need. As for the bathrooms, it is always nice to have more than 1 bathroom when on your 'vacay'. Don't forget the beach itself! Many coasts have brown sand or like the natural beach of Hawaii, many have the grit of ground-up seashells on which to walk. Destin is much different with its sugar-white, soft sand on our beach. Activities are great, here in Destin, too, whether you like fun-in-the-sun activities, shopping, going to the spa, museums, antiquing, or fun such as putt-putting or go-cart riding, Destin has it all. Don't forget the wonderful restaurants which top off your visit. And of course, the beach, with its peaceful waves & its bright sunshine, call your name to come relax.

What makes this condo unique

Tuscan-Italian decor; newly tiled shower w/ glass door; granite countertops; newly tiled floor; beach view & sounds of the waves from our 40' balcony; 4 free beach chairs/day w/ 2 free umbrellas/day during high season; small approved dogs can vacation w/ you for free; flat screen tv & dvd player in each bedroom; 3 bedrooms & a sleeper sofa equals 8 may sleep here; 3rd floor location provides privacy; miles of sidewalks parallel the beach & make for a great workout as well as the fitness room, tennis courts & shuffelboard court; gated community; 2 1/2 miles of private Maraville beach; 2 pools with 1 heated seasonally; hot tub; & walking distance to several restaurants make Maravilla your go-to place for your next vacation.

Beautiful condo with an incredibly gracious and accomodating owner!

  • 5 of 5

We've only been home for 4 days and already are ready to go back! We spent the week of Spring break at Maravilla 1302, 4 adults and 2 children - the condo is a great size - plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. Spent much of our time out on the very spacious balcony - it has a lovely view and is the perfect place for morning coffee or wine in the evening. The beach is gorgeous and only a 2 minute walk at most. The beach service for 4 was a huge plus - especially during a week as busy as Spring break - and made our vacation even more relaxing! The owner Kim was an absolute joy to work with, going the extra mile in accommodating a special request. We will definitely be staying here again!

4th year at Maravilla 1302

  • 5 of 5

Kim and condo are awesome. I have never wished for any additional item in her kitchen. It is very well stocked with anything you might need. Decorated beautifully. Toys on balcony for sand. Additional beach chairs if you need them. Beds are very comfortable. A very short 3 minute walk to the beach. We would neverconsider staying anywhere else in Destin.

Awesome Maravilla Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We love the family atmosphere, proximity to the beach, and smaller size of the Maravilla complex and have stayed here many years. Yes, Destin is getting more crowded as the years go by, but we still love it. This condo is AWESOME. The remodeling is very evident and adds comfort, convenience, and style! The kitchen is stocked thoroughly--even a crock pot! The owner is super easy to work with and very responsive to all questions. We received our deposit back within less than a week of our return! We plan to stay in this condo again, for sure.

Fantastic Property with perfect water access

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in mid June and had a wonderful time. The overall property is well taken care of and has perfect access to the beach. You walk out the front door down a flight of stairs and across the street to the beach. Total distance is maybe 500 yards. We were worried it would be too far away to make trips back and forth to the beach during the day. This was not the case what-so-ever. If someone wanted a snack or a restroom it was a 2 minute walk back to the room. There is also a shower and faucet to rinse off the sand next to the pool on the way back to the room. Beach attendants were very helpful, even coming by throughout the day to adjust the angle of the umbrella to give you more shade!

The condo itself was very nice. Everything was in great working order, rooms and beds were big and comfy. Kids enjoyed sleeping in the bunk beds. Master bathroom looks very recently remodeled and had a very nice tile floor and shower and updated vanity. Full size refrigerator and stove with fully stocked kitchen of pots and pans made for easy dinner prep. We also grilled on the grills by the pool a couple of nights, which were clean and ready to go. Condo had nice TVs in the living room and bedrooms and good WIFI access to stay connected.

The view from the balcony was great as well. You can see down the street for views of the ocean and views of the neighborhood are great too.

Kim was also very attentive. The booking process was simple and she replied to all my texts within a hour or two with any questions.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

It was our first trip to Destin and were surprised how crowded it was. When we arrived at the complex and got to our unit we were very pleased. It was very clean and was just as advertised. First night was a little rocky because the neighbors above us were very LOUD until 3:00 in the morning. I contacted Kim the owner and she contacted the owner of the unit above. Everything got quite for the rest of our visit. The private beach and umbrellas and chairs provided were a big plus. The pool at the back of the complex was our favorite as it provided a little more shade. Our granddaughter had a blast playing in the pool. We also had great seafood as there are many restaurants in the area. Kim was great to work with and responded to any concerns or questions we had. We hope to return again and would highly recommend this unit and owner!
