Why Owner chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

Sparkling emerald green and turquoise waters, sugar white sand, and breathtaking sunsets in Miramar Beach have been drawing us to the coast for over six years. We wanted a home close to the Beach and we are only steps away from the private beach access on Hollywood. Izzy, our Yellow Labrador Retriever loves the beach and wakes us promptly at 6 AM to hit the sand and watch for Dolphins. We have also made friends with Ken and Sophie his black lab at Bad A's coffee which is near the other beach access for Frangista beach. We are perfectly positioned between Destin and the beaches of South Walton including 30A. Miramar Beach is home to incredible local eateries offering fresh seafood and the largest designer mall, Silver Sands Prime Outlet. Within a five minute drive you will find the Destin Commons, movie theatres, vibrant night life, deep sea fishing, water activities and Golf. The location is one of the reasons we chose Frangista Retreat. Of course the beach is the primary reason, we have enjoyed how close we are to the beach and enjoy the sunsets!

What makes this cottage unique

Located only one and a half blocks to the beach and steps to the community pool from the back sunning deck - location does not get any better than Frangista Retreat. Our home is newly furnished with special touches - look for Izzy's picture on the wall in the living room. Our home has three bedrooms - with a bedroom downstairs with a king bed and two twin bunks. This bedroom has a in suite bathroom with double sinks, and a large walk in closet. The second floor master is newly decorated with Ralph Lauren Bedding. a new 55" Flat screen TV, and has a jacuzzi tub, a separate walk in shower, two closets and double sinks for sharing. You also have access to a covered porch with antique wicker furniture. The third bedroom has Pottery Barn bedding and two sets of bunks. Full on the bottom and twin on the top. This bedroom also has a jacuzzi tub with double sinks and a walk in shower. As well as, a walk in closet. Look for the alligator print on the wall over the tub.

The Charm of Destin

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely more than we ever expected. My husband, daughter, son-in-law and sweet little grandson felt like we were at a luxurious spa and resort. Beautifully decorated, clean, extremely well stocked kitchen and the most comfortable living room furniture to relax on. All bedrooms are spacious, nice linens, each bedroom has its own private bathroom. Porches, deck, balcony, grill there are just too many extras to list. Community has large pool to enjoy and only a block and a half to the private beach access. Perfect Perfect Perfect! Just a word of note I am a REALTOR it takes a lot to impress me, I was impressed! Thank you Brian and Janet for one of the best beach weeks ever! My highest recommendations.

Baby Moon!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took a four day getaway after the holidays to just relax and enjoy each other's company. We are expecting a baby, so we thought it would be fun for just the two of us to get away before life gets too hectic. The house was gorgeous! You can tell the owners take a great deal of pride in the home; it was decorated beautifully and had anything we needed. Since the weather was a little cool, the Jacuzzi tub they have was ideal for coming back to the house to relax after a walk on the beach or shopping. The house is in a very convenient location, and is a quick walk to the private beach. It is also very close to all the shops and restaurants. This was a special trip for us, because we got to go on the beach and take a picture to reveal to our family that we are having a GIRL! It is such a special time in our lives, and to stay at a house that was so amazing, just put the icing on the cake. We would highly recommend this property to everyone. Fortunately, as our family is growing, there is plenty of room for us to take all of them in the future :)

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved your home the location was perfect. It was very spacious and beautifully decorated. The house was furnished with everything we could have possibly needed! The bedrooms are big with comfortable beds loved that each bedroom had its own bathroom. The kitchen is very nice and has everything you need. The beach is a very short walk with easy access and the pool is very nice. I would definitely recommend this property for anyone. The owners are wonderful and easy to deal with and very attentive to our needs.Thank you for sharing your home with us. I hope we can stay here again soon!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much - we look forward to hosting your family again. We have tried to think of everything to make it more like home. We feel the location is great for beach access and we are just steps from the pool. Hopefully, your family got to try Fat Clemenzas for Italian - it is one of our favorites. Thanks again for choosing our home away from home.
