About Karen Carlin

John and I reside in Chattanooga, TN. Married for over thirty years we have three grown children. We have vacationed at the gulf for over twenty years and loved every moment. As a utility executive and registered nurse we have lived across the US but always have been drawn back to the gulf. We plan to retire to Miramar Beach in a few years.

Karen Carlin purchased this house in 2012

Why Karen Carlin chose Frangista Beach

We loved the proximity to the private accessed beach and the spacious heated pool after a day at the beach. The house can fit the family and friends in comfort with it's modern kitchen, comfortable living areas, spacious bedrooms and wonderful front porch and two balconies. Miramar Beach offered us everything we could ask for in a vacation location: a spectacular beach, great restaurants, recreation and a relaxed family oriented environment. With plenty of great golf courses, world class gulf/bay fishing and nearby shopping we have all the makings for a fun filled vacation.

What makes this house unique

Frangista Costas is a lovely sanctuary in a private beachfront community. With hundreds of feet of pristine sugar sand beach you get to enjoy your paradise with plenty of room to play. Large bedrooms with balconies and large soaking tubs offer that moment of personal space. The home is tastefully decorated and appointed for the discriminating guest. With restaurants and shops walking distance there is always something to do.

Beautiful, clean, close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

My family spend a week over Christmas in this beautiful, clean, roomy, lovely decorated house. There were 3 families,6 adults and 6 teenagers There is plenty of room, the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need to make any size meal. This house is just about a 5 minute walk to a awesome, clean beach with white sand. We also walked to Dairy Queen a couple of times. There is a lot of games to have family game night. We cooked on the grill a few times. The kids loved the pool and the community pool. My favorite thing was sitting on the balcony at night and listening to the ocean. We loved it here. The owners responded quickly to our needs. We will definitely go back to this wonderful home. Thank you for sharing this place with us. Everyone had a wonderful time.We felt at home. We highly recommend this house.

Clean and VERY close to beach!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful stay at Frangista Costas. There were 3 families in our group - 6 adults and 6 kids total. We had plenty of space for everyone. The home is beautifully decorated and has nice finishes. You can tell it's very well cared for. It was very clean, and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen is fully stocked with plenty of dishes, utensils, cooking supplies, etc. The owner was incredibly responsive to all of our communications both before and after the trip, which was greatly appreciated. She also had plenty of chairs and umbrellas at the house for us to take down to the beach each day, which was an added bonus (saving us money on beach chair rentals).

The home is in a FABULOUS location! Literally a 2 minute walk to private beach entrance. Can't beat that! We also walked to Dairy Queen, a local coffee shop, and a local winery...all within a block or two from the house.

I've been going to Destin since I was a kid, and we'll definitely keep this place tucked away in our back pocket for future trips!

Beautiful vacation home with our children and grandchildren. The home is beautifully furnished decorated and clean. This was our second year in this home and plan to return next year . The pool was an added treat and short walk to the beautiful beach was special. A place for anyone to relax enjoy and build memories.

The week we spent at Frangista Costas was outstanding. The spacious home was perfect for us with kids, grandkids and a couple of their friends! Everything was very clean and the pool was sparkling and equipped with every kind of pool/beach toy you could ask for, including beach chairs. The beach is less than a block away and so many shopping areas within a 5 mile radius. Everything we needed for a relaxing vacation, including an amenity package to local attractions, restaurants, free movie rentals, golf, and more.

Frangista Costas has upscale appointments, can accommodate our huge family, has a heated pool with pool deck conducive to entertaining, is within walking distance to local restaurants, shopping, and of course...the beautiful Emerald Coast. May is a wonderful time to go to Destin! Beautiful weather and no lines at restaurants.

Great Spring Break

Our family and friends had a great time. The home was spacious and beautiful. Great upstairs bunk room for our boys! The masters were very large and the decor was lovely. A must return for us! The owners were great to work with as well.
