Outstanding property, great vacation!

We had 2 families of 4 just stay an entire week and had a great time. The house was very well decorated, very nice inside and out. It's very comfortable and cozy. We slept great on the beds, and the fold out where two teen-age boys slept was comfortable as well. The best part of the house is it's close proximity to the pool and the fitness center. The adults can sit out on the back deck in the evenings, watch their kids swim, and just relax. The other great part is the beach service company down at the private beach that's just used by the Maravilla residents. Every resident has a designated spot ready for them down at that amazing beach, that includes 2 chairs and an umbrella. (You can rent additional chairs and umbrellas if you need to). The beach is walkable from the house, about 1/4 of a mile or so. In the evening you can stroll down the scenic 98 highway and walk, run, or take in one of the many restaurants close to the complex. The beach and water is by far the most amazing part of our trip, and this house made it that much better. You won't regret staying in the Southern Gem for your Destin vacation. Thanks again!
NOTHING BUT THE BEST!!!

Great location and perfect home

The cottage was great and so was the location. Having a private beach access was much valued. I would recommend this property for multiple reasons - location, amenities, pool facilities, central location and safety. Also must mention that it was easy to work with the owners. David and Margaret were excellent throughout.
Thank you so much for your great review! So glad you enjoyed the location and other amenities. We love the area and we are happy to share it with other families! Thanks for taking care of our cottage! It was a pleasure working with you and we hope you will come back to Destin in the future!

Loved our stay at the Southern Gem. Great distance to beach (most important part!). Had everything we needed for a great home away from home. Very comfortable and clean! Thanks for a great vacation!

BEST VACATION EVER!!!

My husband, two adult children and spouses, and our 8 month old Granddaughter stayed a week in the lovely "Southern Gem", and had a wonderful vacation! The house is very spacious, and comes with all the amenities needed for a very enjoyable week. The kitchen is well stocked with everything needed for cooking, including spices and condiments, and all dishes, silverware, etc. The decor is lovely and comfortable, and lends itself to a very welcoming atmosphere. The yard is landscaped beautifully, and the back deck is a wonderful place to relax, after spending the day at the beach or pool. The deck is just a few steps away from one of the community pools, which was very convenient and the owners even supply some floats and beach toys for the kids (or the kids at heart)! I honestly can not think of a single thing that we could have needed, that wasn't supplied! Margaret is a pleasure to work with, and works hard to make sure her guest have a wonderful vacation! My family and I are hoping to make our stay at the "Southern Gem" a yearly tradition! If you are searching for a relaxing, comfortable place for you next family vacation, I highly recommend you stay at the "Southern Gem"! Now, I'm looking forward to next summer!!! Thank you, Margaret, for a wonderful vacation!
Thank you Sherry for your wonderful review. It was a pleasure to have your family stay with us! So glad you enjoyed the cottage and the time with your family in Destin!! That is what it is all about! We will look forward to your family coming again. Thanks for sharing so others will realize that renting by owner is the way to vacation! Have a great summer!

very nice floorplan, we had 5 people staying in this house and had plenty of room. the deck on the back of the house was my fav! overlooked the back pool. the shower on the side of the house was a plus too.

Quiet and FUN

Our family spent a week in the Southern Gem and had a wonderful time. Being a block from the beach was great and having the pool just a few steps away was fantastic. The home was beautiful and spacious, but we had just 6 in the house. Two more people might have been cramped. The laundry area was great and had large size load capability. The welcome binder that contained places to eat and things to do was very helpful. We wanted to grill at least one night, but the only grill access was on the other side of the clubhouse. We also would have liked a griddle for making bacon and other breakfast items, but the pans supplied got the job done. The blender there is fantastic!! It had a great outdoor dining set for the whole family and multiple tv's for evening watching. We loved it's proximity to the "action" but it was far enough away from "rowdiness". We really hope to visit there again!
Woods & Howell Families - 7/25-8/1/2015 - The house was prefect and our vacation was wonderful!! We will definitely recommend your cottage to friends. Thank you so much.
The Endler Family - 06/20/15 - We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Your cottage is lovely and we felt so much at home. We liked the area and beach was great and the complimentary chairs really helped. The young men were very nice. Also the pool was wonderful and so close!
All in all we couldn't have asked for a better vacation. Wouldn't mind coming back again sometime.
06/21-06/28/14 I would like to thank you so much for a wonderful time at your beautiful home in Destin. We enjoyed a special time with our family. Your home was so welcoming, well stocked, and relaxing. It was the perfect place for us. Thank you for sharing it! We hope to visit again!
