Frangista Beach House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 9

WE DO NOT RENT TO STUDENTS FOR SPRING BREAK

Plan a Destin, Florida beach escape to our lush three bedroom Coconut Grove home. Accommodating up to 9 people, this vacation home in Frangista Beach is great for a relaxing getaway.

The living room has a 42' Plasma flat screen TV. The bedrooms are all equipped with TVs and DVD players.

Enjoy your own private pool in a lush tropical setting. Coconut Grove is just 3 houses in from the beach, so you will just have a short walk to beach access. You can even walk to beachfront Pompano Joe's restaurant, our favorite, for a quick lunch or dinner. Destin's fine selections of shopping, dining and entertainment are just minutes away. You are sure to have an amazing vacation when you stay at Coconut Grove.

Great location, but disappointed

  • 2 of 5

This trip was our 5th family vacation in the Destin area. The location of this property gets 4 stars! There are many great features about the house. Having 2 kitchens and living areas is a definite plus. The living areas and bedrooms are spacious. The downstairs bunk room is cramped, but will accommodate children.

The two floors of the house are not internally connected. The rain coupled with the outside staircase was more inconvenient than anticipated. We had a problem with caterpillars around the pool area and in the downstairs kitchen at night (at least a dozen each night). The biggest issue we had was flooding downstairs during a midweek 2 hour heavy rain. The response to a previous review about flooding indicated that the issue had been resolved. The owner and management company (Destin Days) indicated that our flooding was most likely related to the pool overflow, not the previous flooding issues. Hopefully, our experience was an isolated one, but it was frustrating to deal with flooding on our vacation.

Our experience with Destin Days was much better than the 2012 reviewer's experience with the previous management company. Destin Days responded to our calls about the flooding and replaced all of our wet towels (used to stop the water) in a timely manner. They also responded quickly to all requests submitted during the week. However, we would not rent this property again.

We decided to wait till after the summer rush and chose this house for a post summer trip. Very nice place, that was very home like, and very close to the beach. My family and I had a great time and would stay there again.

Great private pool

  • 5 of 5

We all had a really good time. Nice and close to the beach. Great place for a large family with older children. Enough room to spread out. Great private pool area. We especially enjoyed the upper deck area.

The Best Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I was so impressed by the location, cleanliness and charm of this house. We planned this trip with another family and selected tis house because it has 2 separate areas for each of us. When we arrived, the first thing we saw was the pool – which was not only clean but the perfect size for our kids to play and the surrounding vegetation was so relaxing. Inside was just as impressive - the rooms were spacious and clean, the beds were made (and comfy) and the kitchen had everything to feed a family of 8! The best part was that it was so close to the beach - every night our family would sit outside on the deck and listen to ocean waves. This was the perfect house and I can’t wait to go back next year!

Very Bad Experience

  • 1 of 5

Listing description was accurate regarding location close to beach. Pool not clean when we arrived. Was cleaned 2 days later. Downstairs refrigerator had no ice maker and 1 ice cube tray with hole in it. No garbage disposal in downstairs kitchen. Upstairs refrigerater's ice maker did not work. Upstairs garbage disposal did not work. Top sheets were not put on all 3 sets of bunk beds and DIRTY comforters laid on the clean bottom sheets. When requesting clean sheets, Southern Resorts Management Company said it was too late in day to get them and we had to wash sheets from 3 sets of bunk beds. When requesting ice cube trays, 3 days later Southern Resorts said they had none. First floor of home flooded on Wednesday morning around 8:30A.M. After hourly calls to Southern resorts, they finally sent someone out around 12:30 after we had cleaned up the water with 1 small mop, no buckets, and all available bath towels. After requesting clean towels to replace "flood soiled ones" at 9:00 A.M., they finally brought them around 4:30 P.M. Last 3 days of our vacation were ruined due to several noisy, large fans used to dry house that produced heat up to 90 degrees on the lower level of the house. Part of the ceiling in lower level kitchen was missing. (Found it laying in back yard by pool).

On a brighter note, owner aided in helping us secure a partial refund of our rent for the week from management company--however not nearly the amount we would consider fair in light of all of the problems we encountered.

Ultimately, we would not recommend this property to a friend or relative unless some major maintenance work was done like regrading the outside to prevent future flooding, adding some lighting in lower level kitchen and bathroom shower (very dark), and getting a new management company. We will never rent a home managed by Southern Resorts again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your comments. We take these reviews very seriously and have made significant changes to prevent experiences like this one from happening in the future. While we could not prevent the flood, the service form the management company was controllable. We have since discontinued working with this agency and are very happy with the one we have on board now. All repairs have been made to the property and our agency is terrific. We now it can be difficult booking a property without having seen it, but rest assured we take our business seriously and work hard to ensure a pleasant stay for renters.
