Fantastic Pet Friendly Vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a great pet friendly vacation at this unit. Pictures of unit are very accurate. Beautiful beach view from the large balcony. Very clean, with absolutely no sign of any prior pets in the condo. The boardwalk in front of Maravilla made for some very lovely sunrise and sunset walks with our Boston Terrier. All pet owners staying at Maravilla were very friendly and responsible. Location was great. Short walk to Pompano Joe's for lunch or dinner. Destin attractions very close. Took sunset sail out of Destin twice while we were there. I think our Boston Terrier enjoyed the vacation as much as we did. Highly recommend this unit and Maravilla for your pet friendly vacation! We will be back!

The title describes the property perfectly. There is nothing misleading about it at all.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time at Maravillla and it was all that we hoped for and more. Working with Victoria was a pleasure...so professional and prompt. The unit was wonderful and the whole complex was just what you would want in a beach front condo. All the staff were courteous and polite. The best part was the price...several hundred dollars less than other guests we spoke to. It is a corner unit, not full frontal to the gulf, but our decks were a perfect view of the waves crashing on the gulf. You can't go wrong working with Victoria to rent this condo for your dream vacation.

My family and I fell in love with your condo from the moment we opened the door. You had everything that we would ever need for the week. The beachview was heaven. Great pics! My family and I will be lifetime renters.
