Maravilla by the Sea

Destin, Florida
One of the world's most beautiful beaches!

Have you ever been somewhere that just feels like home? That is what our Maravilla Resort unit feels like.  Some of our guests have been staying at this same unit, making memories, since the complex was built in 1995. Their children have grown up spending their summer vacation on the beach at Maravilla.

This tastefully furnished 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo, in the heart of Destin, overlooks the crystal clear, emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico featuring 2 & 1/2 acres of private, gated, sugar white beaches.

Living room with stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico.

There is a sofa sleeper in the living room.

Dining area and fully equipped kitchen.
There is a full size washer/dryer just off the kitchen. 

Master bedroom with king size bed, with view of the Gulf.

Guest room with regular size bed.

There are two pools, one overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, barbecue grills, 
gym, tennis court, & basketball.

There is a beach service offering a beach chair and umbrella already setup for rent by the day or week.  Some guests prefer to do what we locals do, and just take their own beach chairs.

When you need to get out of the sun, Silver Sands outlet stores, 
Grand Boulevard & Destin Commons are just minutes away.  

There are world class restaurants nearby with seafood so fresh that it slept in the Gulf last night.

You can even bring your small pet!

Beach Time!

From early November through the end of February, our magical coastal community is a charming, quiet little fishing village. That all changes on March 1 as we prepare to share our little slice of heaven with visitors who come back year after year.


Spring Breakers are eager to dip their toes in the surf, go parasailing along the beach, learn to YOLO board, go out for a day of deep sea fishing, sailing, or just hanging out on the beach.  

The ultimate attraction of Destin is the incredible sugar white beaches and crystal clear, emerald-turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico creating a magical, memory making vacation spot.  Our shores are dotted with lush tropical palms fanned by gentle gulf breezes. 

Our beaches are ranked by national publications as among the best and most beautiful beaches in the world!  From a sleepy little fishing village, Destin has become the crown jewel of the Emerald Coast. 

Destin is home to the largest commercial fishing fleet in the state of Florida!

Whether you are visiting Destin for the first time or plan a return visit, we welcome you and will be saving a seat for you!
