BEACH ACCESS IS an easy and quick 3 minute walk to our subdivision's private beach access to one of the more private beach areas of Destin. Our area of Miramar / Frangista Beach does not have high rise condos and does not have public beach access, which makes for a less crowded beach area especially nice for setting up nice area to hang out and play beach games.

Top it off with a Dairy Queen treat, same walking / stroller distance.

Legendary Marina, a full service, upscale marina to launch and dock your boat is located approximately three miles from this beautiful home.


We are from the greater Atlanta Ga area and have vacationed in Destin with our three children, other family members, and many friends over the past 30 years. It has been fun to watch Destin grow from a sleepy little fishing village to the wonderful family fun oriented town it is today.

During our years vacationing in Destin we have been bringing a boat with us and enjoying the beautiful Destin waters both from the beach and from a boat. Destin is a boaters mecca! We love hanging out with our family on the beach and in the boat and with Legendary Marina and dry storage just 15 minutes away this location is great! Legendar

Destin is definitely the best family oriented beach town on the Gulf! We are pleased to share it with other families to enjoy!

Destin is definitely the best family oriented beach town on the Gulf! With our 30 years of Destin heritage we believe this Frangista / Miramar Beach location is the best in Destin and why we chose this location. There are no high rise condos in the immediate area and the beach access controlled is by private access which means there are less people, great for families to keep track of each other. There is more beach room for beach activities!

Here are the reasons we chose this house. A very short walk to the beach was a must! We wanted the strength of exterior concrete walls to protect against high hurricane force winds that also keeps the house cooler in the summer and warmer in the mild winter. We wanted a high enough elevation and distance from the Gulf to protect against high water and flooding. We wanted the benefits of a small upscale controlled access subdivision with little vehicle traffic for security reasons including the safety of our's and our guest's children and family. We wanted to be in easy walking distance of a great restaurant or two, and convenient to a real nice grocery store and shops. We wanted to be in a central location of the Destin area that enabled us to take advantage of all of the area activities. Emerald Waters was the subdivision of choice. This beach house has the structure we were looking for! We have completed renovations that we envisioned to make Gulf Breeze one of the best family oriented beach houses in Destin. Bonuses include the great subdivision park directly across the street with its beautifully manicured lawn where we love to play all kinds of lawn games, one of the subdivision pools is located across the park where our children have been able to meet new friends their ages. We are pleased to share it with other families to enjoy!

Awesome Vacation Rental
• 5 of 5
We stayed at this house in May for a family reunion. The location is within walking distance to the beach and in a very nice gated community. This house is very large and accommodates a large number of people without being on top of each other. Two master suites was a big plus for us. The furnishings are comfortable and the house is beautifully decorated. We chose to heat the swimming pool and the adults would use it at night for relaxing after the kids went to bed. I highly recommend this house if you are vising Destin. We will definitely rent this house again when we return to the area.

This home accommodated our large group beautifully. There are two bedrooms that are closed off from the rest of the house that are great for sleeping babies. The beach is an easy five minute walk. Each of us enjoyed our vacation!

We really enjoyed our stay. Just a short walk to the beach, a coffee shop and Pompano Joe's. Though the pool is small, we really enjoyed it. We also really appreciated the pool and beach toys. We arranged for beach umbrellas and chairs with La Dolce Vita, I would recommend them. The patio area and deck were comfortable for hanging out after a day at the beach. Fourth of July traffic was a headache but the beach and ocean make this a great area to visit.
The open floor plan does sometimes get noisy and a few bedrooms were not as air conditioned as others but overall the 16 of us were very satisfied.

This property is everything you're looking for in a Miramar Beach area vacation stay for as many as 14-16 folks. Close to the beach, close to great shopping and awesome activities, close to numerous seafood restaurants. The home has super outdoor amenities with a pool, gas grill and outdoor fireplace and more. Inside the house feels like home, comfortable in every way. Several other amenities are not offered with other similar priced properties. Multiple large screen TVs, stereo, dining seating for at least 16. Can't say enough about this vacation destination. We want to do this Miramar experience again. I highly recommend this home.

This house provided plenty of space for our large group of 16! It is beautifully decorated. The kitchen is well-stocked and an extra fridge is also available in the garage. The outdoor area provided lots of fun with the pool, fireplace, and ping pong table. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here!!

A beautiful retreat home!
• 5 of 5
We had the most amazing vacation in Destin and our time spent at the Beach House was everything we could have expected. Our entire family was amazed at the space. We had fourteen in our family group and never felt crowded. Most of the group especially loved the large table that was able to accommodate all of us at mealtimes. The pool was such a plus for the children. The spacious patio was amazing. We brought too much "beach stuff" as plenty was provided for our use. All in all, we would highly recommend this lovely home to our family and friends and are looking forward to a return visit. You will not be disappointed

Big House... Well maintained
• 5 of 5
We stayed 5/21-5/28 and loved the area. It is a gated community which was nice. We had 2 families stay at this place which was a total of 13 people and we had ample space to eat and sleep. The master bedroom and bathroom upstairs is huge and beautiful. The shower floor is a little slick but you just have to be careful.
The house was clean and the pictures online match what you see in person. The owners were great to speak with and the booking was easy. They sent us a huge packet in the mail which we used to find courses to golf and book the dolphin tour...(HIGHLY RECOMMEND SEA BLASTER)
I would definitely recommend this to large families who like the beach. The house is a short walk to the beach. The sand is white and beautiful and they water was shallow enough to wade out a good 50 yards.
We ate a Pompano Joe's just down the street from the house and it was good. We tried to eat at the house as much as possible to save money. The grill on the back patio worked just fine for us. Driving around town is a traffic jam unless you go late in the evening then it isn't near as packed. The issue we had was the shops and restaurants all close around 9:00pm.
Walking around the marina was cool for the kids. They did the zip-line and shopped. The restaurants around the Marina were always had a long wait to eat so we didn't eat there. We did rent a pontoon for the day and saw even more dolphins. We also anchored up at Crab Island which was really fun for the kids.
I would stay at this house again.

I really enjoyed the beach house, it was amazing. The owners were very great with anything i had a question or concern about which was only a pool issue, and that was fixed immediately. Everything was so great, it was easy access to the beach, and stores and my kids loved it and said that they would love to continue to go again every year and would love to stay in the same house. The house is very big and had more then enough room. there were some beach supplies in the garage as well. overall we had a blast and would love to come back again. the property was very well maintained. the description and pictures and everything was exactly as shown on the pictures. the house is sound proof from the outside which was a plus for playing music. i would recommend this property.

This is the third year we have rented this house. We have 14people in our family and we all had a great time. I took a vote for next year and guess what we are planning to go back. The improvements that were made this passed year were great so pretty and comfortable. Can't say enough about the owners so very easy to deal with, really helped when my granddaughter left her glasses. We got them back no problem. Thanks for everything.
