Guestbook comments from the manager

Our very large family stayed in Castle on the Beach in July , 2014. The home was everything and more that was promised in the web site. We loved the beautiful living area which opened out to a large porch with lots of seating--- a perfect place for visiting and beach watching. The many bedrooms were all totally furnished with comfortable beds, furnishings and linens. The beach towels were so appreciated. There was an extra washer and dryer and very large ice maker --- great!!! The kitchen and large pantry were fully equipped. This was trully a great house and we hope to stay there again next year

Reviewer Comments:

Castle on the Beach was the perfect spot for our large family reunion. The setting and views are phenomenal. Kitchen worked beautifully for a large group and the commercial refrigerator on the bottom level was great for storing our large pre-cooked meals and desserts. The older grandchildren had paddle boards delivered and the toddlers loved running on the beach and playing with the many sand toys provided. The six beach chairs and three umbrellas provided wonderful shade and were included. There were 13 cars between all of us and we fit in the driveway with room left over. Two things I would recommend: There is only one dining table with 8 chairs. We brought folding camp tables and folding benches, which was a lifesaver. Otherwise, people would have been eating on the light colored couches in the living room and on the floor. Second, in order to have a bonfire you have to utilize a particular vendor and it costs $500 for two hours. Unfortunately, the HOA had mandated this restriction. Overall, a perfect spot for a reunion with wonderful views of the Gulf and sunsets!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We hope you will continue to use Castle on the Beach for your next reunion. The large refrigerators are loved by everyone who stays!! I am sorry you decided not to have a bonfire at the property, actually the County mandates that professional vendors must coordinate bonfires for guests of owners or vacation rentals. We very much look forward to seeing you again. Frangista Beach Properties.

Pros: The Home we stayed in was lovely. Access to the water was so convienient that it was easy to make multiple trips each day. The elevator made it a breeze for the handicapped seniors in our family. Whatever we needed was attended to quickly. The kitchen was very well equipped! My family loved having a great place to be together for a week. Cons: ice maker in the kitchen was too noisy! Silk plants were very dusty.

Reviewer Comments:

Home is beautiful. Lower level was unusable due to mold or very musty smell. Master also very smelly, but we enjoyed it otherwise. Kitchen well equipped, pantry room was great. Laundry off kitchen was well utilized. Beautiful views and area. The decks were wonderful. You could sit out on the deck and stay pretty cool even in the heat. BBq grill was great to have for large dinners. We had 5 families there for a family reunion with 5 kids so we managed to sleep everyone on the upper floors due to the large number of beds. We had a slight issue which was immediately resolved. Great customer service, home needs some TLC as with any beach home, many doors and windows are ready to be replaced. Furniture could use a good cleaning. If you don't have allergies, you will love it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of our beach front home, Castle on the Beach. After your departure, we did inspect the home and were unable to locate a "mold or musty smell" in either of the bedrooms you mentioned. The carpets and furniture were scheduled to be cleaned after your departure so we hope this alleviates any potential issues for our future guests. We appreciate you recognizing our customer service and hope you choose Frangista Beach Properties again for your future Destin/Miramar Beach Vacations.
