This living room is great for the kids to enjoy watching a DVD away from the parents or playing on the supplied XBox (with a few games or feel free to bring your own - just make sure they don't spend all their time indoors on their vacation!). The couch pulls out to a queen bed for those larger groups. French doors lead to the outside balcony overlooking the pool and backyard retreat, and glimpses of what you came to Destin for - our Beautiful Emerald Ocean!

Off the living room is the 2nd King pillow top Master with generous oversized palatial bathroom. Lose yourself in this large room with plenty space. The large closet also has all the toddler items you might need such as a porta-crib, baby monitor, etc... Step outside on the balcony and enjoy any activities going on in the back yard (such as the vacation ping-pong tournament or pool championship). Another 40' flat screen and DVD allows for that perfect wind down.

The 3rd King Master retreat located on the front side of the house, enjoys its own large private balcony. This generous sized room features another pillow top king bed as well as a chaise that can be used as a twin as well. The large bathroom keeps the luxurious feel going with the jetted tub or walk-in tile shower.

The back yard is truly special and a wonderful way to spend the time when you are not at the beach. The large pool is the perfect fresh water compliment to our wonderful Emerald Gulf. Pool table - check, ping-pong table - check, hot tub - check, custom baggo set - check. Activities for everyone and we also feature a gas grill and an outdoor shower to clean up with before going back inside. The shaded 'tiki-hut' offers a nice area to enjoy a snack or meal. With plenty of lounge chairs as well as stackable chairs to accommodate larger parties, be as active as you want or just soak up the sun.

About Jon or Jennifer

Hi, we are the Duke family. Married for 25 years and have 3 boys. Locals now, having moved to Destin from the Memphis area in 2016. We LOVE being locals! We are enjoying being close to the beach, fishing, and boating!

If you need us, we are just a phone call away!

Jon or Jennifer purchased this house in 2012

Why Jon or Jennifer chose Frangista Beach

We fell in love with this particular location because of the family friendly neighborhood and the close proximity to the private beach! All of the homes that surround us are vacation rentals so everyone is relaxed and on vacation as well, and that makes a big difference!

There are two fabulous restaurants within walking distance and a great coffee and ice cream spot right around the corner.

We loved the Destin area so much that we just recently moved from the Memphis area and became LOCALS! Living the Dream! It is drivable from so many areas throughout the country. We love all of the family oriented restaurants and activities in the area. The kids like the water park, Big Kahuna, and Mom and Dad like the many patio restaurants with live music to enjoy a bite with the family while sipping on some great beach concoctions . Of course the crown jewel is the sugary white beach where we spend many hours.

What makes this house unique

The reason we chose this location is three-fold. 1st, the location is UNBEATABLE!! We absolutely love being steps from the beach. We can come and go from the beach as often as we like without having to make it a major production loading up and unloading every time. 2nd, the private beach offers the opportunity to enjoy our famous white sand beaches without the crowds from many of the public beaches. 3rd, THE BACKYARD!!! No other property in the area has all the features out back that we just put in. Generous sized pool, hot tub, resort quality outdoor pool table and ping pong table, sand baggo playing area (think corn hole), built in gas grill, outdoor shower, lighted tiki hut to get out of the sun in the day or play cards at night, plenty of resort quality furniture including 6 chaise loungers to sun in and 2 6-seat dining tables - all this surrounded by 18 premium Washingtonia Palm trees that are lit up at night. Electricity in the tiki hut, so be sure to bring your margarita machine and relaxxx! It may be hard, but just be sure to go down and enjoy that world class white sand beach that you came here for!

We have 8 years in the Vacation rental industry and are attuned to what guests want. You will be working with us rather than some third party that does not have a direct investment in the house. We want you to come " Right Back"!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Two families- 4 adults and 6 high school aged teens spent Spring Break at Boomerang. It was our own private resort! Lots of pool table tournament use by the kids and with the private beach just yards away, we were comfortable giving them freedom to roam. Plenty of room for everyone to have privacy and space. We grilled out, cooked in the kitchen, watched movies, played games, played poker in the tiki hut, enjoyed the pool and hot tub and had a relaxing week! Jen is great at communicating and takes pride in keeping a beautiful property. We fell in love with the beach, so we will be back!

Perfection! They've thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful and well taken care of! It was clean and so pretty when we walked in. It has a huge living area and kitchen with everything u can think of. The rooms are spacious, with huge closets and porches. The bathrooms are enormous and two have their own jacuzzis! We had 14 people stay here, our family of 2 adults and 5 kids, plus 3 of their friends and two sets of grandparents! Plenty of room and privacy for all of us! The backyard is what first sold us on the house as we were coming at spring break and never sure about the weather that time of year! Wanted this house because of the amazing back yard with lots of activities in case it was too cold to be at the beach much! It turned out to be a beautiful week so literally had to pry my 10 year old twin boys from the outdoor pool and ping pong tables to go to the beach! We cooked out in the backyard and played games into the evening! The pool was heated and much bigger than it looks in the pictures. It was in the perfect part of destin, away from the huge highrises and mostly just beautiful homes! We could walk to several nice restaurants and my kids had Dairy Queen at least once a day, which they could walk to! I splurged on the coffee shop at the corner most mornings! We were 20 minutes to seaside and 15 to Destin harbor walk and right by the outlet mall! Truly a wonderful location on the gulf! We were thrilled with everything and the amount of beach stuff they have for u to use in the garage is Amazing! You really don't need to bring anything for the beach! The owners are great and have left a detailed notebook with information about house and area in it. Also left two books filled with dvds! It was truly an amazing week and we will definitely "be right back!" Thank you for everything! I almost didn't write a review because I don't want everyone to find out about this gem! 😜🐬❤️

Lots Of Fun

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Boomerang House. Jennifer and her "associates" were awesome. Anything we needed they were right there. The beach was great! Private and perfect for the adults and kids. The first couple of days were just spent hanging out in the backyard, it was great. Pool, ping-pong, swimming, hot tub and grilling out...what more could you ask for. If you have the opportunity, check it out. Thanks and we will be "right back". Go to Pompano Joes at 3pm :)

Second Time Around

  • 5 of 5

Our second family vacation at the Boomerang Beach House and it was just as we remembered. Jennifer makes it so easy and stress-free, even with six adults and four teenagers. It's the first time we have returned to the same house as we usually like to try something new each vacation, however, we enjoyed Fall break so much here last year that we repeated it this year too! The two oldest grandsons will be in college next year at this time so we don't know if we will be back for Fall break, but hopefully we will be able to enjoy this lovely home with the perfect location again with all of us able to be here. Thank you again, Jennifer, for all you do to make this such a perfect place for large family vacations!

We are just steps to our private beach access! Our location can't be beat! So close, in fact, that when someone in your family forgets a boogie board or snack, the house is just a heartbeat away!

Fabulous restaurants are within walking distance of the house or grill out right in our backyard on our fabulous gas grill while the family swims and has ping pong and pool table tournaments!

Hire a expert sand castle expert to give your family lessons on sculpting a magical sand castle! I have seen there demonstrations and tips! What fun for the whole family!

The Silversands Outlet Mall is within 1 miles of the house and has fantastic shopping. The Destin Commons Mall is just 3 miles away and contains a great movie theater.

Big Kahuna, a water slide park, is just 5 miles down the road. There is also an amusement park called the Track Destin that has Go-Karts, mini gold, kiddie rides, and more.

Bowling anyone? A great new island themed 16 lane bowling alley and grill just opened up last year and is called Uncle Buck's FishBowl and Grill! Our family has had great times competing while eating appetizers and drinking cocktails and sodas while bowling. Sports games are also televised on giant screens!
