About the owner: We are from the Atlanta Ga area and have vacationed in Destin with our three children, other family members, and friends for the past 30 years. It has been fun to watch Destin grow from the sleepy little fishing village to the wonderful family fun oriented town it is today. Our vacations in Destin with family and friends are some of our most memorable! Come to Destin and make memories you will never forget and always cherish with your family and friends!
Why the Owner Chose Frangista Beach: 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 safety and security reasons. We wanted to be in easy walking distance of a great restaurant or two, a convenient 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 most of the updates 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!
The Unique Benefits at this House: This home is within easy driving distance to all activities, malls, restaurants, air shows, fireworks, Crab Island, marinas, and more. And, it's a very short walk to the beach, Pompano Joe's and Whale's Tails restaurants.
