“Summer Vacation”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2016

My family and I just got back from our Destin trip and we had a blast. The condo is very nice and spacious. It overlooks the ocean and the pool! The owners have thought of everything you may need to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We have found our new vacation spot. I can't wait to go back next year.

“great fun in the family friendly condo”

Reviewed 15 Jun 2015

We had an excellent family vacation in Destin. The beach and water were wonderful! When we arrived, the condo was clean and welcoming. Someone has thought of all our beach needs and added the special touches (such as beach toys, card and board games). This was my first stay in a condo (vs. a hotel room) and now there's no going back to hotels :) We enjoyed our breakfasts and dinner on the balcony, it was very quiet and serene. This unit is an end unit, which meant no traffic by my door or bedroom (so wonderful). I had my 16 mo old baby with and I really enjoyed not having neighbors on the bedrooms side / not having to worry about her crying or someone being wild and waking her up. I can tell the unit was recently refreshed - kitchen had nice cabinets and granite counters, carpets looked new...It is a nice clean condo I'd recommend to a friend and come back to myself.

The condo was great, had all the amenities you could ever need, lots of extra beach toys. Very clean. Short walk to the beautiful beach. The beach was amazing. Would definitely stay here again.

“Perfect vacation, perfect condo! Thank you!”

Reviewed 31 Oct 2014

The perfect spot for a relaxing October getaway! The condo itself was beautiful and very well-kept, with lovely furniture, a large TV, boogie boards and beach toys for renters to use, and plenty of cooking supplies in the kitchen. The beach chair and umbrella service at the condo was fabulous, the two (!) pools are well located and very relaxing, and the wi-fi in the condo was nice and fast for the time I had to spend indoors sunburned! There is also a desktop computer in the condo for those of you not addicted to your laptops like I am. :) The check-in & check-out process was VERY simple - Danka was just awesome to work with and made getting into and out of the condo the easiest it can be. The whole experience was just like staying at a friend's beach house, and I would absolutely return.

“My all time FAVORITE Vacation spot”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2014

I have been coming here year after year and I LOVE it - the condo is nice, clean, quiet and comfortable with a lot of extra touches not found elsewhere. The owners do everything possible to make the stay enjoyable - like extra chairs, surf boards, things you might want at the beach. The free beach setup is a great extra as well. I think it is a perfect spot for a vacation- walking track outside, ocean views all around, 2 pools and hot tub.. safe and quiet, it all adds up to a GREAT vacation and you cannot rent from nicer owners. I stayed in Panama City for years until I found this condo. Stinky's Fish Camp is the best seafood - is on 30A and if you haven't driven all of 30A .. do it. Thanks again for a perfect Vacation !

“Romantic Getaway”

Reviewed 5 May 2014

My husband and I had a great time in Destin. The condo was perfect and we had everything we needed. I love how the owners provided beach toys and a roller cooler. The location of the complex is perfect and the condo location within the complex is great as well. The condo is an end unit, which we loved because there's more privacy. We initially wanted a beach front unit, but I am glad we ended up with the end unit. Thanks to Danka! We look forward to visiting Destin again.

My family spent the most wonderful week in August in Danka and Chris' lovely condo in Destin. My husband and I have been looking for that beach spot where our family can return year after year and we're so excited to have finally found it! Destin is the perfect place for a young family: the beach is gorgeous and clean, the water is crystal clear, and there was plenty to keep us entertained the rest of the time, from mini golf to water parks a short drive into town. And we love Pompano Joe's down the road! Try the Mahi Mahi Bajan and Pina Coladas, they are to die for. Good kids menu too - our 5 year old daughter was in heaven. It did rain for a couple of days, so I hit up the outlet mall a couple of times, and entertained ourselves with the games at the condo. Danka and Chris have been such gracious hosts too, making our stay so easy and hassle free. Their beautiful home is thoughtfully equipped with everything we could possibly need for a week away! And my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the amenities at Maravilla - pools, tennis and basketball courts, the gym. Really, this stretch of Destin is a place we'll be coming back to for years.

“Maravilla Condo in Destin”

Reviewed 6 Jul 2011

I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the 2BR/2BA Maravilla Condo in Destin, the week of May 21-28. For my great surprise Destin, as well as Maravilla Community has tremendously changed (has been at least 9 years I did not come back to Destin). I felt I am somewhere in Paradise. Unbelievable community improvement - starting with all new businesses opened; Destin Commons Town Center (just 2 miles away from the Condo) is like WOW! The Property is well maintained and secured from those not staying at location. However in all our traveling in the area we never felt like we were not safe, the people that live in the area as well the management team of the Property were friendly and helpful. The beach was beautiful (...in fact the water was spectacular!) and having a set-up of beach umbrella and chairs every day was part of the fun. The condo was lovely and well cared for and close to everything the complex offers and is in great location to the local attractions. I like to cook and enjoyed having a fully stocked gourmet kitchen. Owners are very nice people to deal with. Thanks a lot Danka and Chris for sharing this wonderful place you have.

We stayed in the 2br/2ba for a week in March. The condo worked out very well, plenty of room and very convienient to the beach and the popular shopping centers and eatery's. Even though it was Spring Break the condo is very quiet. Nice place for families. Thanks again!
Dick from Solon, Iowa

We thank you for sharing your vacation home with us. We stayed in the one bedroom during spring break which provided a very comfortable stay. Being an end unit, the extra windows allowed for great sunlight. The balcony afforded a great view of the ocean! It was a great location for walking along the beach at all times of the day, even to a few restaurants. The set up of beach chairs and umbrella was quite a plus also. You had plenty of beach 'stuff' in the closet which would be great if you had little ones or additional family members with you. The second pool at the back of the buildings was warm and a pleasure to swim in. Kitchen was well equipped, and the internet access with the computer was another nice plus. I would definitely recommend this unit to others if you are looking to stay in Destin!

My husband and I stayed in the 1br/2ba condo in the end of July, we loved the location and the view. The description of the property was exactly how it was when we arrived. The balcony view of the ocean makes this property a gem! We will definately rent this property again in the future.

Wow, What a nice condo! We spent a week in the 2br/2ba condo in September. Excellent Location. Danka, we felt we were borrowing a good friend's extremely well stocked and extremely well kept vacation house. We had a great time and really enjoyed the place. My Mother complimented your great taste in decoration and housewares ! Thanks a lot, we had a great time.
I.A. from Houston, TX

Wow! Thank you so much for a wonderful week in your condo. We had the absolute best time - we had only ever experienced the Texas coast and it does not hold a candle to the beauty of the Emerald Coast and the white beaches of Destin. I sometimes had to pinch myself on waking up and seeing the gorgeous view every morning from the balcony. The kids had the best time ever, saw so much sea life and had a great time collecting hermit crabs and snorkeling. The beach service worked out great and was a real treat - all staff polite and helpful.

Everything was more than perfect - we hope you would consider us on your list of future rentals, we just had the best time and thank you for lending us your beach home!!
