Awsome location and great home a most rent

  • 5 of 5

Well it's called Frangista Sands but our family has nicknamed it “Fantastic Sands”

We arrived at on a beautiful sunny Saturday ready to hit the beach !

A family reunion was planned and a week filled with either much to do or nothing at all !

The house was even better than the photos showed , which I know from previous renting is not always the case.

The kids settled into the “super cool” as they said bunk bedroom and we were blown away with the views of the Gulf of Mexico from all 3 stories. Other family members were equally as happy with their bedrooms for the week. We were ready to hit the sand , and well hit it.. we did .. or hit us.. down the steps and bam! turquoise water and white sands were our backyard for the next 7 days .

We so enjoyed our vacation, the house had everything we needed . We enjoyed the blender for morning smoothies and evening Pinna Colada’s. The linens were fresh and clean and extra towels were under every sinks.

The caretakers stopped by and made sure we had settled in . The owners were great as well, they had emailed us tons of great information about the area prior to our arrival and even called us when we arrived to make sure things were to our standards, something I have never experienced with previous rental home owners.

Destin has so much to offer , we enjoyed all the local hot spots that Destin had to offer. The teenagers enjoyed The amusement park called The Track one night and the choice of dining was endless.

We loved the home and would recommend it to all our friends. It was more than we could have ever expected for a great vacation enjoyed by all. We are already looking to book it for the next summer for a repeat of our Fantastic Family Reunion at Frangista Sands.

Good and Bad Points to this Rental

  • 3 of 5

There are many good things about the property, but I want to write a fair review and include the points that you should know as a potential renter. If I would have known some of these things, we would have continued to look. For $9500 a week, we had high expectations. The owners were extremely responsive and did care about everything being done well for us. Our expectations were met with the location of this property and the amazingly beautiful beach that is private for members of the Frangista Sands community. It was less crowded than the public beaches, but being that we were there during a peak summer week, there were still many people around. The actual rental is one half of the house that you see on the picture. It is three stories tall and has comfortable sleeping room for 8 adults and a bunk room that comfortably sleeps 4 kids. There are bathrooms for the adult bedrooms but none for the kids' room and that created a challenge since we had teenagers in that room. There is an elevator and that was helpful. We found the kitchen to be just "okay" - not well stocked. We had to buy dish towels and there were no measuring spoons. We had to re-wash all of the utensils when we arrived - they had food on them. The 'living area" is extremely small and wasn't conducive to all of us sitting together. We understand that the house has to be turned quickly, but we found a LOT of dirt and dust under beds and behind furniture. We had to reach under the bed when we dropped something and found a pacifier stuck to the floor - it had obviously been there a long time. We had several maintenance issues while there - a chirping smoke detector, a clogged shower drain, and a leak in the spa that drained it daily. We had to call several times before they came out - none of the issues were resolved before we left the property. Despite all of this, we had a nice time. Here are the things that I wish I would have known: there is a very steep wooden staircase that leads to the beach. We had our elderly parents with us and had a lot of trouble navigating the stairs. This isn't an issue at all for healthy people with no physical limitations, but you should be aware that you can't get to the beach without using a staircase. There are no hairdryers and no gas grill at the property. The community pool is very small and is about two blocks away. You are not allowed to have shade tents on the beach. They do provide two chairs and an umbrella.

Amazing location and a fantastic home

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was excellent from beginning to end. The owners were very responsive to all of our inquiries. The house itself was amazing. Having direct beach access was fantastic! No long walks and no crossing roads with little kids. We had 5 kids ages 5 to 13 and they were all able to go to the beach on there own and we could watch them from the balconies. There are a couple of fun beach restaurant / bars within walking distance, Pompano Joe's and the Whale Tail. Plenty of room for everyone in our party to have a room and beds. The "bunk house" was perfect for the kids, they loved it. The house was very clean and had everything we needed for cooking and entertaining. Highly recommend this house to anyone who has a medium to large group and loves the beach!

What a lovely experience!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was perfect for our family vacation! Lovely interior decorating throughout and completely furnished with all the comforts of home. The pictures on the website are a clear indication of just how lovely this home is. Private white sand beach right outside your door with clear emerald blue water which was great for snorkeling. We enjoyed the great location of this home which was within walking distance to Pompano Joe's a delicious seafood restaurant as well as a great coffee shop across the street. We highly recommend this vacation home as we have already booked our next vacation here!!!

Couldn't Be Better!

  • 5 of 5

This home is wonderful! We took our grown children for a family get together late in the season. Blessed with perfect weather and the beach was incredible! House sits on a quiet area (October) and we had the beach practically to ourselves, pure white sands were excellent. Now the was lovely and more than comfortable for a group. The home is first class, decorated for the beach but very very tasteful. Every amenity you would ever need. We had an issue when we first arrived but the owner was on the phone asap getting it fixed. All communication with the owner was very easy, before and during our trip. Elevator is a great perk for moving luggage and the kitchen has everything you need. Family room table sits eight so that is also a plus for dining and game nights! We would definitely stay here again, couldn't be better!!

Do yourself a favor---STAY HERE!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a spectacular week with 14 delighted people. The condo was as beautiful as the pictures shown on the web site. The bunk room was great--housing six grand sons from 19 to 6 years of age. The beach is wonderful and only about 75 feet from our back door.

I would recommend this place to anyone.
