Welcome to Aphrodite!

This elegant home has 8 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms and sleeps up to 28 people and boasts 4,500 sq. ft. of living space with 800 sq. ft. of deck space. Aphrodite has an amazing, large observation deck off of the fourth story tower to sit back, relax, and enjoy the beautiful Florida sunsets. This home offers both a place for fun and relaxation. Aphrodite rests in the exclusive coastal community of Frangista Beach. This community off Scenic Hwy 98 is in the middle of tropical excitement with beach shops and shoreline restaurants are within walking distance. But, most importantly this home is just a 3 minute stroll to a private beach access. So guests will be able to get to the sugar white sands of the emerald coast and away from the crowd.

Before even entering the home the large 12x30 ft pool will lure guest into the crystal blue water. This pool area features a grilling station and lounge seating throughout. There is also a brand new hot tub for guest's enjoyment. Protected by the courtyard stucco wall Aphrodite’s pool deck has provided the perfect setting for many family reunion cookouts and wedding receptions infamous for being held during the fall and springs nights on over twenty occasions; accommodating up to 40 guests.

Entering into the homes first floor is a cozy lounge and wet bar that is connected to the media room which features a large 60” TV and foosball table. Also on the first floor are three bedrooms two of them are queen suites each with their own personal TV and private bathrooms. One of the queen suites includes an additional bunk bed. Down the hall is a custom made bunkroom that sleeps 10. This room is perfect for teens and young adults.

Following the stairs to the second floor guests will be welcomed by a bright and roomy living space decorated in wonderful detail and beautiful mural. This cozy living room is both pleasing to the eye and the perfect place to unwind after a day at the beach. Near the living room is a full-sized kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and plenty of room to craft the perfect recipe. Beside the kitchen is the dining table and along with the adjacent breakfast bar everyone will have a place to sit. The second floor also holds two queen suites, each with their own personal TV and private bathroom.

Up to the third floor are three more bedrooms each with their own private bath and TV. The first room is a queen suite. The next two rooms are king suites and one of the king suites has a full sized master bath with a Jacuzzi style tub and an entrance to the balcony overlooking the pool.

The final staircase leads to the fourth story tower. This bright room has plenty of light streaming in from all over. The comfortable seating in this room includes a sleeper sofa. Two doors give access to the amazing view of the surrounding area and with balconies on every floor everyone is able to enjoy the warm gulf breeze and take in the beautiful sights of summer.

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 manager

Our family (16 adults, 3 little boys) stayed at the Venus July 7-14 to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday. The house is perfect for a large group, and we had a wonderful time. The pool was a big plus, as were the 2 refrigerators and the separate icemaker in the cabinet on the first level - we never had to worry about having enough ice! The second floor living and dining area was large enough to fit all of us, and it was convenient and easy to spill out onto the porch on that level. The 8 bedrooms were comfortable and it was great having a private bathroom in every bedroom except the lower level bunk bed room, which had a bathroom in the room where the pool table is! The kids didn't care about that - they just loved that cozy room with the bunks! That is also the only bedroom that did not have a television. The showers in the Venus bathrooms were wonderful, all in perfect working order, great water pressure, etc. As for the beach, it was fairly convenient to get to (about a block and a half's walk) and was so beautiful that the walk was well worth it - this was hands-down the nicest beach and calmest ocean we've encountered in the USa! And finally, as for the service - we met Jim, the BeachReunion agent, when we came by to check out the Venus before moving in, and he was very courteous and put us immediately at ease about the house. I also met Joe, the maintenance man, before we moved in - he said he would be available any time if and when we needed him, and the few times we called him, he was right there to help out (and he never complained!!) Carrie, the concierge, met with us right after we moved into the house and made sure we had everything we needed (i.e., beach towels!!) All in all, it was a wonderful week and we all agreed we had made a great choice in coming to Miramar Beach and staying at the Venus.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I which consist of 7 families (21 people) stayed at this beautiful 8 bedroom home that sleeps 28 people Thanksgiving week. The home was fully stocked with appliances, utensils, cookware etc. to accommodate our needs in order to prepare a wonderful Thanksgiving meal. The location of the home was great as well, very close to the beach, grocery store, gas station etc. and driving into Destin was only minutes away. I really enjoyed working with Lora of Beach Reunions she was great with helping plan our stay for my family. I would highly recommend this property.

Wedding Reception Venue

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I got married August 15 on the beach and had our wedding reception in the driveway of Aphrodite. Beach Reunion was so accommodating for our unique situation. Carrie, the concierge, went about and beyond during our stay. She even took time out of her day to drive me around the neighborhood to show me empty houses where our guests could park for the wedding and reception. This place will always hold a special place in our hearts. We wouldn't have changed a thing. The house was HUGE; we had plenty of room for our guests. The four night stay turned into a family reunion. I highly recommend renting one of Beach Reunion's big houses for wedding guests, so you can celebrate your special with your whole family! This is a much cheaper option for your family members versus each person having to find and book their own condo, hotel, etc.

Flowery Branch

Gigantic, so much room, so close to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house with 3 families of, total of 17 people. Everything is so big and grand, we never felt cramped even with all the kids running thru kitchen. Everyone slept comfortably, the house was furnished with beautiful furniture and all the cooking utensils you would need to cook for an army. We also had the grill put to good use. This house is only one block off the beach, it is so worth it to save so much money and still get such a gorgeous house that fits everyone. The walk to the beach is very short, it is a quicker walk to the beach than when we stayed in a condo in Destin that was technically "on the beach". The Frangista Beach strip of scenic 98, which is exactly where this house is happens to be so quaint with little shops and a beach supply shop all within a one minute walking distance. We also walked to dinner one night at Pompano Joes just down the street. The neighborhood pool is a beautiful pool but we never went because our pool was perfect. The sheets, blankets and towels were in excess. We did not need to bring any of our own pillows and blankets... next time we will leave all that home! We rented bikes from the place just down the road for the week. It was nice to take bike rides all the way down scenic 98 and stop along the way at places like Kenny D's, Whales Tail... Bring your own bikes or just rent them. Beach Reunion also rents golf carts, we did not get one but we wish we had just for the fun of exploring more of Frangista Beach and all the other quaint beaches all within a mile or two.

The TV was not working in the downstairs room where the kids wanted to play video games, we called the office and they had someone come over within a few hours to swap it out.

Venus Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Three generations attended our family reunion and all agreed that we would love to visit the Venus house again. The owner, Jim, came by personally every day to check on us. It was an easy walk to the beach with chairs reserved for our use daily. We also enjoyed the two dish washers and two washers/dryers. Bedrooms on the main level made it easy for grandparents to be a part of the action.
