About the property

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


LAST SUMMER WEEK AVAILABLE, JULY 21-28 OPEN at a DISCOUNTED RATE. Rate reflected on site. OFFER expires April 15 2018

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

FRANGISTA beach is centrally located on Scenic 98 which runs along the gulf of mexico for many mIles. The views are incredible. Call me directly (613)489-4157 for any immediate questions otherwise use the book now feature to reserve your desired week without delay :)

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! Access to our beautiful community pool as well.

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 at the beach.

We do however provide a cart and wagon with some beach chairs, umbrella & 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 & Pat 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 completed for 2015

Why Lisa & Pat Furano Owner chose Frangista Beach

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.

Thanksgiving in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

We rented Destination Moments for our Thanksgiving holiday with our three grown kids and two grandkids. The house is wonderful and a short walk to the amazing Frangista Beach which we enjoyed each day we were there. I've never actually laid out in the sun on a Thanksgiving day but we did and had our dinner around 5 p.m. and would do it every year if we could. Everything in Lisa and Pat's home is very nice, very clean and everything we needed to cook our meal on Thursday. Lisa thought of everything, and we thank her so much. She was a great host, very much appreciated, and we would definitely love to rent this house again. The pool was a joy in the back yard, enough room for everyone to park, the chairs and wagon to carry to the beach were awesome, and the beach towels are very nice! Thank you Lisa and Pat so very much for making a family memory we all will have for a very long time. All were very happy and hated to go home on Saturday.

The MOST Beautiful Beach Home!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best beach trip here at the beautiful beach home of Lisa and Pat! Immaculate and every room was beautiful! Kitchen had anything anyone could ever need . The house is huge! Everyone had plenty of their own space and own bathrooms. The kids loved the game room that was full of movies and games. We all loved hanging out by the private pool and the lounge chairs to relax on. Easy walk to the beautiful beach and we even enjoyed a bit of ice cream at the shop just down the street. Plenty of chairs, towels etc. Perfect house and location made out family trip the best. And Lisa was so helpful from start to finish. Every one said they want to make it an annual event!! ❤️❤️❤️

Excellent !! We loved the house and owners !!

  • 5 of 5

My whole family loved this house. Very clean and well organized. Well equipped and well managed. Lisa was very accommodating and she made sure that you were well taken care of. I only talked to her on the phone and by the end of our vacation, it felt like she was already part of our family. I would recommend this house to all my friends who are planning to go to Destin. I am pretty sure that I can't go wrong recommending this house. To Lisa, thank you for making our vacation the most memorable one. Our kids loved it up to the extent that they don't want to leave your place. We greatly appreciate your kindness and accommodating. Hope to do business with you again.

Beautiful house...great location...great owners!!!

  • 5 of 5

My entire family of 15 stayed here and never felt cramped. Its a beautiful house and set up perfectly for large families and kids. The kids loved the pool and game room when not at the beach. The beach is a very short walk, and close to shopping and eating. You will not regret it!!! Lisa was a pleasure to work with...couldnt of got a better person to rent from!! My nephew left his "blankie" and she shipped it immediately home for him! We are hoping to return there and will definitely rent from Lisa again!! 5 star!

Fabulous for 15

  • 5 of 5

Our family group ranged from 5 to 74 in ages. The house is spacious and very well equipped with all things needed for a week at beautiful Miramar Beach. The short walk to the beach was worth each step to the white sand and blue-green water. June is a very busy time, so everyone was prepared for the heavy traffic in the Destin area and we spent our time at the house pool and the beach, not wanting to deal with crowds at many great attractions in the area. Owner, Lisa, was extremely helpful and the entire process through VRBO/HomeAway was a breeze. We especially liked the home's location on a quiet, not busy street. Beds comfortable, plenty of beach towels, beach toys/cart/chairs/etc., and great bathroom spaces. Kids loved the pool. We highly recommend Destination Moments to families or large groups who want to enjoy the Destin area in comfort and with ease.
