The neighborhood of Frangista Beach consists of mostly large homes where families come to vacation. It spans the equivalent of approximately 4 blocks. The neighborhood has a 400 yard private beach which you must have a code to access. This home is within walking distance of a coffee shop, deli, Dairy Queen, a beach gear shop and local favorite beach front seafood restaurants, Pompano Joe's and Whales Tale. Frangista Beach is also home to Emerald Coast Wine Cellars where you can sample and purchase wines made exclusively in Florida. A large Winn-Dixie grocery store is 1.5 miles to the east and beside it you will find the largest designer outlet mall in the Southeast, Silver Sands Premium Outlet. Frangista Beach has a rich history that began when a family from Greece built a small motel and, subsequently, a little white Synagogue (which still stands to this day). Many brides are married on the Frangista Beach and use the picturesque chapel for photographs. After visiting this neighborhood, you will understand why so many families choose to return year after year.

Guestbook comments from the owner


"We can not express our thanks and appreciation for upgrading us to your beautiful Mikonos home. Our family was originally scheduled to stay in a different house the week of 08/20/2012 but due to repairs we were upgraded to your spectacular home, we felt like we won the lottery! Your home is beautiful, clean and spacious; we can't say enough. Thank you again for your generosity you truly made our family reunion one we will never forget."

Lovely House!

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful and spacious. It was perfect for our book club retreat. The only negative is that we had no access to the internet, as advertised. That was problematic since one of the ladies is in school and needed to submit coursework. I'm sure WiFi was included in the cost but there was no discussion of credits or compensation.

AWESOME Xmas/New Year vacation rental!!!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing! Walking into the rental we were so pleased! It was clean throughout!! The kitchen was stocked with everything thought possible for a huge dinner !! They called and asked if there was anything else that would make our stay even better than it already was! I would definitely come back and recommend this rental to everybody!

The concierge Carrie was "over the top" with her customer service!

The owner, Jim, even came by to make sure everything was satisfactory!! I would definitely recommend this rental, it was spacious, well- stocked, spotless, etc,...

The house was AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

The house was truly incredible. Our party included 16 people with many cars and this house has more parking then any other around! As you walk in, you are struck by the openness of the kitchen/living area. There is ample seating in front of the main television including a massive couch. The kitchen was stocked for a chef, and the outdoor grill was seemingly brand new. The pool/hot tub area was well maintained and a guy came to clean once a week. Each room was comfortable and the showers were all clean and shower pressure was high! Overall the place was incredible and my family had a great holiday get-away. Carrie the concierge and Jim the home owner created an experience my family will not forget. This is our second year staying with Beach Reunions in Destin and we will be returning next year!

Almost Excellent

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 12 adults and 4 children stayed at Mykonos the past week. The house was beautiful, and the perfect location. We really appreciated being able to walk to the beach, a few shops and restaurants. It's located in a quiet neighborhood. The private beach access and beach chair and umbrella set-up service were terrific. We found the house clean, the beds were comfortable and a good configuration for our family. There was plenty of bathrooms and enough hot water for showers. The linens and towels provided were clean and we had plenty. The air conditioning worked well. There are several porches which is really nice. The kitchen had enough dishes and silverware for our group and lots of appliances including two coffee pots, toaster oven, toaster, microwave, two refrigerators, and two blenders. There are two dishwashers, but one didn't work well enough for us to want to use. The pool was wonderful. It was clean, a good size, and well maintained. The patio furniture was nice although an additional umbrella or two would be helpful since there is not much cover. The outdoor grill doesn't work well. It was advertised that there would be a new outdoor grill with a mini fridge on the patio as of 1/2017, but they hadn't been installed when we were there, so we were a little disappointed. That's primarily why I didn't give the house 5 stars. although given the opportunity, I would have given 4.5. Overall the house is exceptional and we hope to return. We had a wonderful time.
