About the property

Destination Moments is a 3100 Square Ft. 5 Bedroom located in the best area!

Welcome to DESTINation Moments!: A 5* 3100 square foot two storey home in the neighbourhood of Frangista Beach. Just completed in July 2014.

WE HAVE MAY 20-27 OPEN at a Special PRICE due to a last MINUTE CANCELLATION. Email or call for your price!


With ALL its amenities it truly is a home away from home. We provide you with everything but your food and clothes :

With 5 bedrooms (2 King Suites, 1 Queen, 1 Double queen, Bunk room) and 5.5 bathrooms there is plenty of room for comfort and relaxation. It's only a short 3-4 minute walk to beach gate located on our street. We also have a 10x20 backyard swimming pool! To see this incredible beach check out our photos or google Frangista Beach Cam and it will come up live stream.

Kaba Keyless lock for easy and convenient entry. No keys to worry about!

If you've never been to Destin, your in for a treat! This private beach is amazing! Since its private it won't be overly crowded. There is so much to do in Destin. Helicopter rides, water parks, crab island, fishing, surfing, museums, shopping and so much more!

Come stay in October & November. Destin has an incredible fishing rodeo from October 1-31. October & November are the best months to visit. Perfect weather, less crowds, incredible shopping and amazing fishing. Forgot to mention the ocean is still really warm!

Or how about Christmas?! Add that to the bucket list....the sand is as white as snow but definitely not as cold. Destin has been exceptionally warm this winter with the average temp being 75 every day!

The open floor plan on the 1st floor allows for everyone to enjoy the kitchen, dining and family room together.

Laundry room with washer and dryer is on the main floor. Ironing board and iron on premises. Laundry pods provided.

Each bedroom has a private bathroom with cozy linens & towels for your added convenience.

A game room for the children with Xbox, board games, books and all the latest DVD movies.

The backyard is equipped with a grilling and dining area out by the swimming pool with some loungers to relax! Pools are a must in the hot Destin summers.

While the ocean is amazing, sometimes it's nice just to have the convenience right at your feet.

We provide beach towels, beach accessories, such as chairs, cooler, wagon and toys.

Kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, crock pot, cutlery, utensils and dishes for everyone. A dishwasher to wash it all. Plastic plates, bowls and cups for the little ones. As well as a high chair. We try our very best to keep a supply of dishwasher tablets, garbage bags, dish soap, paper towels, coffee filters, laundry soap, toilet paper etc in the house. If there is none, we apologize. Most homes do not supply these items. We like to!

Brand new stainless steel appliances and coffee maker. Refrigerator makes crushed or whole ice for those tropical drinks.

Every room has a flat screen television with satellite cable.

Photos don't show how spacious the home actually is. There is plenty of room for large groups but cozy enough for smaller groups.

We are a short 3-4 minute walk to the 2 private beach access gates at the end of Miami Street (our street) and Hollywood Entrance. The beach has the finest sugar white sand. The crystal clear warm water just makes you want to float and swim all day!

Located just off Scenic 98 which is widely known for walkers, joggers and bicyclists. Great way to start and end the day.

Your friends and family will not be disappointed with this very clean, tropical oasis. The neighbourhood is quiet yet so close to all the action. Bike, scooter, golf cart rentals at the corner.

We've never used it, we walk to everything but some like to cruise the scenic strip.

Beach chairs and large umbrella service is available on the beach. We do provide a cart and wagon with some beach chairs & large beach towels. A stroller for the little one.

Paddle board, sea kayaks also for rent, right on our beach.

Make memories that will last a lifetime.

About Lisa Furano Owner

We have been vacationing in Destin for the last 14 years absolutely love it every time we go! On our last vacation we decided it would be ideal to retire there some day. We purchased property in October 2013 and decided to have our vacation home built in 2014.

Lisa Furano Owner purchased this house in 2014

Why Lisa Furano Owner chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

We have stayed at different areas in Destin and Frangista/Miramar Beach was our favourite. The private beach is by far the added bonus. Our home is close to everything. The neighbourhoods are safe and have the friendliest people.

What makes this house unique

Close to restaurants, coffee house, dairy queen, pizzeria, wine store & beach stores. All within 3 minute walking distance. Premium shopping just a short drive to the USA largest designer outlets like Whole Foods, Walmart, Michael Kors, Coach, Oakley, Osh Gosh, Nike, Kate Spade, Addidas, Ralph Lauren, Abercrombie and Bass Pro just to name a few.

Our fabulous vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of our vacation while staying at this gorgeous house. It was furnished beautifully and the kitchen was fully equipped. The owners thought of everything you might need while staying at their beautiful house, every detail was covered. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool which was kept very clean and the outside deck area with a new gass grill, lounge chairs and a big umbrella table to enjoy meals outside. The beach was just a short walk away and lounge chairs, beach towels and even an umbrella was provided. They even had carts to load up all your beach gear to make it easier for you. Everything was so very nice. I cannot think of one negative thing to say about this house. It was lovely and so were the Owners. They have been so kind. I had so many questions before our trip and they answered every single e-mail with kindness. This is a wonderful place to vacation and we are already planning to come back.

Our wonderful winter vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay at this lovely home in Destin, Florida.

The home fit our needs to the tee. First floor bedroom for our mother and three nice size rooms on the second level of the home.

The kitchen was large and stocked with everything you could possibly need.

The small, yet functional backyard was perfect. Completely fenced for privacy, several lawn chairs, large patio dining set and in ground swimming pool. Although we choose not to use the pool, it was still wonderful to sit by it. The home is not on the water, but within walking distance.

We stayed for a little over a month and enjoyed every minute of it.

We would rent this home again.

Great 5* Vacation In Destin

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th vacation to Destin and we typically stay at a different home every time to switch it up. This is one of our favourites. The area is wonderfully close to everything. Kids loved the dairy queen at the corner!

The beach is less crowded which we really enjoyed. We didn't have to go scope a place at sunrise. Our stay was very spacious, comfortable, clean and a home to call our own for a week. Kids loved the hang out area with an xbox for down time. We loved the yard and pool as well as all the bathrooms. My experience with the owner was pleasant and worry free. We recommend this home for anyones trip to Destin

Exceptional Stay Hard to Leave

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous vacation home! My family of 8 absolutely loved this house. It had everything we needed. I can't recall looking for something and not finding it. Cupboards are labelled so its that's easy. House was spotless including the wonderful yard. This is where we spent an abundance of time when not at the gorgeous private beach.

Grilling, lounging, dining and swimming. Pool is a perfect size, not a small splash pool like most have in the area. Crystal clear and doesn't smell of chemicals. The walk to the beach is pleasantly close and everything is provided for that. Chairs, umbrella, wagon, name it. Bedrooms are nicely furnished and decorated. Linens and towels provided were very nice. Located in a beautiful neighbourhood!! Our experience from booking to departure was with ease. I felt comfortable through and through. Lisa is friendly and professional. We hope to return in 2017 and if we do we'll definitely stay here again!

Great vacation house.

  • 5 of 5

The property was very nice. The one complaint the others had was the lack of drawer space. The king master upstairs was fine, but our boys in the twin queen room only had a small nightstand drawer. I would put a 4 or 5 drawer chest in the spacious walk in closet. The same was true for the futon in the game area. I wished the game counsel had some drawers. Samantha lived out of her suitcase for the week. Similar story for the other rooms and yes they used the rack in the bathroom by the bunk room. I also wish we had two hand towels and wash cloths per person, could have saved some washing but not the worst thing.

The only other thing I noticed is minor, but as a rental property owner I would note...the grills on the air returns need to be vacuumed.

Please don't take our comments as criticism, but since you asked.

You also had supplies I would not have suspected such as the plastic wrap and foil. That was quite convenient.

We tried to keep the outside chair cushions under the balcony at night so they would be dry in the morning. The outside area was very nice. The beach toys were great to have. The big boys left their orange boat for future renters. Enjoy.

Owner's Response: Thank you choosing our home and sending a review. We value everyone's opinion and strive for excellence. Every bedroom has a spacious walk in closet with shelves which we assumed was enough alongside the 4 oversized nightstand drawers in each room. While the Master Bedrooms have dresser drawers we will add some to the other bedrooms such as the double queen and game room :) Thanks for the recommendation. We love the outdoor area too! Perfect for lounging , swimming and grilling. Once again thank you for choosing our home and your feedback! It was our pleasure to have you stay.

Perfect family vacation home rental!

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, clean, beautifully decorated vacation spot on our favorite beach! This was our first time to rent a home on this part of hwy 98 and loved it! The private beach was much less crowded and made our trip significantly better!! No to mention our own pool to relax and wake up to. So many rooms and opportunities to spread out.

Lisa and Pat have prepared their home for guests like no other and were wonderful to work with. No 3rd party managers, personal attention made a great difference. You walk in prepared to start your vacation. They have thought of everything and it made such a difference!

Great memories were made this week and we are so grateful! Can't wait to come back!
