There is a reason they call this 'Scenic Gulf Drive' - Come discover some of the most beautiful beaches and majestic views in Destin and, for that matter, the entire Gulf.
A perfect mix of days at the beach, family activities, nearby golf, and a short walk to great restaurants, combine to make Maravilla one of Destin's most desirable vacation addresses. The sugary-white sand beach will call to you for morning walks, afternoon dips, and evening strolls.
Our second home (and, we hope, yours for a while) is located in Building Three, just steps from Maravilla's private beach, or the heated pool with jacuzzi. Our smoke-free and well-appointed condominium features one of the more spacious two-bedroom layouts in the development.
Our Condo has been updated and freshly decorated throughout with shades of yellows, greens, and blues for a cheerful, yet relaxing, color scheme. The main living area has been given a fresh look with white wood furniture and new accessories. These include a Sharp flat screen high definition TV (HDTV) in the well-equipped entertainment center. A new Pier 1 Banana Chair reflects the tropical atmosphere of the Coastal region. Paintings and photos of Mediterranean Islands enhance the look of the new, clean decorating theme.
The Master Bedroom has been appointed with an Englander mattress set topped off with Martha Stewart Bedding, Cindy Crawford furniture, and a wall-mounted Panasonic Viera HDTV, These amenities combine to create a sophisticated and comfortable reprieve for our primary guests.
The second Bedroom has a new HDTV with a built in HD DVD Player. This can come in handy when you wish to entertain the kids in a separate area from the adults.
Relax in either of Maravilla's two pools, or spend time under your umbrella at the beach, which we provide, along with two chairs in season. For the more athletically minded, play on one of Destin's many championship golf courses, work out in Maravilla's private fitness center, or play tennis on either of two courts. You can even shoot some hoops or play some shuffleboard on-property.
Of course, there are always amusement parks, miniature golf courses, and shopping at Destin Commons or Silver Sands Factory Stores to compete for your leisure time (and your Visa card limit!).
There's plenty of room for your family of six, and your beach accessories. Enjoy the view from our large, 27 ft. long, third floor balcony that looks out through the coconut palms to the Gulf, and some magnificent sunsets. The balcony is accessible from both the main living area, and the master suite. Step onto the balcony, take a seat in the patio furniture, sip your favorite beverage, and have a relaxing evening with your family or friends while the breeze rustles through the palms.
Sea Breezes and Sunsets - we loved it so much that we bought it after only our second visit. We know you will love it too.
We are a family of five from Louisville, KY. Beth is a former special education teacher and Gary is in the commercial insurance business. We've been married since 1980 and began growing our family in 1984. We are blessed to have three adult children, their spouses and two grandchildren (so far!!). Our children and their families all live in Louisville. We look forward to our time with the kids and grandkids every Sunday after church. We have all come to enjoy traveling and Destin is one of our favorite destinations.
Beth Criscillis purchased this condo in 2004
We visited Maravilla on several occasions prior to our purchase. While visiting Destin, we looked at numerous other properties but always kept coming back to Maravilla because of the convenient location, the family atmosphere and the great facilities. It was the type of place that we wanted to come back to as a family and we knew that our guests would feel the same way.
We realize that there are so many little things that combine to make up a great vacation experience. Primary among these are the location, atmosphere, and amenities of the property you choose. We understand and appreciate that these intangibles can make or break a vacation. This is why we chose Maravilla as our second home, and continue to pay attention to detail - a well-stocked kitchen, new TV's, fresh bedding, quality furnishings, even new door hinges. All of these small things add up to what we hope will be one of your most pleasant vacation experiences ever!
The owners were very up front about the construction going on at Maravilla. There was verry intense work being done during the week. However they did not work on the weekends and did not start before 9 a.m. Despite the annoyance of the construction the facility was well keep up and clean. You can not beat the convenience of the great restaurants and shopping. The beach is amazing. We are from Cambridge England and never seen a more beautiful beach. The condo also was freshly painted with a new Refrigerator and dishwasher. we had a beautiful week. We would do it again.
We arrived to a very clean well maintained condo. We can't wait to book again for Spring.
After reviewing the listing and reading the reviews we found Beth's condo to be exactly what we expected. It exceeded our expectations and the fact that it is "pet friendly" is a major benefit. Excellent amenities, location and just steps across the street with a cross walk directly in front of the property for easy access to Maravilla's private beach. The condo had two beach chairs reserved for guests and the beach services was excellent. The surrounding area is a composite of upscale and gated communities, low density rental units and an excellent location for morning walks and jogging. A couple of sidewalk cafe's (coffee and bagels) are within walking distance. We would recommend the condo to friends or relatives and especially those who have pets.
Great location~close to the beach. Had a great time. Owners were responsive to our questions.
Location is great-close to restaurants and shopping. Beach access including chairs and umbrella is an added bonus. Condo is furnished in a beach decor and feels homey and comfortable. Wifi was very slow, but otherwise accommodations and location make this a relaxing stay at the beach.
We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it as a place for relaxation and fun. The staff at the beach that took care of our umbrella and loungers were very nice and helpful while we were at the beach. The pool area was very nice and clean. The location was nice for taking walks and for being near to shops and restaurants.
This was my families first time vacationing in Florida and the Gulf area. This condo was perfect for us, it was a beautiful location, very nicely decorated and clean, the kitchen was wonderful, having a washer and dryer was a huge bonus (especially with 2 teenage girls changing clothes constantly), and close to shopping, dining, and just across the road from the beach. We will definitely be coming back here!
