Frangista Beach House Rental Photos and Description

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

Welcome to DESTINation Moments!: A 3100 square foot two storey home in the neighbourhood of Frangista Beach. With ALL its amenities it truly is a home away from home!

FALL isn't too far behind and has the absolute best weather!!! THANKSGIVING STILL AVAILABLE!!! Our prices are unbeatable for your accommodations. We provide you with everything but food and clothes :)

With 5 bedrooms 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!

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.

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. Thanksgiving is a great November trip to the Emerald Coast! BOOK YOUR FALL VACATION NOW.

Or how about Christmas?! Add that to the bucket list....the sand is as white as snow but definitely not as cold.

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.

Collect moments not things. 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. We are very excited about this new phase of our lives and want to share it with others.

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.

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!

Our favorite vacation home in Destin

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time our extended family of seven has stayed in this home. In addition to being very clean, we also love the layout. It has more than enough bedrooms for everyone to have their own private space and lots of bathrooms. Our two boys (8 & 14) had fun playing the XBox on the one rainy day we had. The kitchen is a very good size and the owner has every amenity you could possibly want. It is a very short walk to the beach but the pool is great if you just want to stay in. The house is centrally located near lots of great restaurants, shops and entertainment areas. Not only is the house amazing, so is Lisa, the owner. She is so sweet and a joy to work with. We are already planning our return trip next summer.

This Place Could Be an Ad for VRBO!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved, loved, loved our week in this home. And it really is a home. Immaculate, well-stocked, beautifully decorated and brand spanking new. When the pool heater broke, the repairman was out the same day. The kitchen has every tool you need to make a gourmet feast. And the owner is a lovely person to deal with.

Owner's Response: Wendy, thank you for your review. We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay! It's unfortunate the brand new pool heater had a hiccup. Probably because it rarely gets used with those hot Destin days, it may have needed a little kick 😊. We do have a great pool guy though.

Wonderful large home for multiple families!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in this home while on our last vacation. The home was clean, lots of room for 3 large families, fully stocked with everything imaginable and in a great location not far from the beach. The owners were great to work with and so friendly! Kids had a great time and there was always something to do...for all of them (age range of 1 year to 16 years). Great vacation home for our first trip to Destin!
