We just returned today (Aug 4 2007) from our stay at a second floor unit that faces the beach. Our rental condo was newly decorated in a safari type and the view from the balcony superb. We chose Maravilla because it has some pet friendly units and looked nice on the website. We loved it, but were only given one... More

Our unit at Maravilla was very nice, nothing real extravagant, but everything was tight, clean, nice looking. We were on the second floor facing the beach and near the pool. Bed was comfortable. We never had any problem with space at the pool and it was always clean. Beach was great. On the negative side, the second bedroom was pretty... More

Date: April 10 -17th 2007 Recently returned from a great family trip to Destin, Florida. We stayed at the Maravilla. The condo was perfect for our family of 6.

We booked our condo via the internet because we love Destin and the Miramar Beach area where Maravilla is located. The pictures of the unit looked fine and the owner's description seemed to fulfill our needs. We booked unit 1413. However, upon arriving, we were more than disappointed. The condo itself has two bedrooms one of which is very small... More

Stayed in a 2 bdr/1bunk room/2 bath condo at Maravilla. Location was great with easy beach access across the road and within walking distance to several restaurants, coffee shop and beach stores. There was some repair work being done on the complex but pools and tennis court were open. Complex was clean, plenty of chairs at pool. Our unit, 1303,... More

We just got back from Destin and stayed at the Maravilla for the first time. I highly recommend these condos. We booked the Maravilla by recommendation from a friend after a cancellation from The Islander due to some damage sustained from Hurricane Dennis. We had a 2 bedroom/2 bath condo. They offer 2-4 bedrooms condos also. We stayed in building... More

Maravilla in Destin Florida is a wonderful place to stay. Maravilla grounds are meticulously kept with condos and cottages for rent, many of them by the owner. Rates are very reasonable for the Destin area. We liked it because it is located on Scenic Gulf Drive along the beach in an area with not too much traffic and is uncongested.... More
