About Matthew White

Welcome to our listing for Sunset Manor and most importantly we thank you for your interest in our beautiful beach house!

I am a Financial Advisor in Little Rock, AR. I have been in practice for over 10 years. I am married to my beautiful wife Kelly and we have three wonderful children. We have welcomed two daughters into our home through adoption and welcomed our first son in December 2015 and have served as foster parents for over 5 years. We are very passionate about foster and adoption and currently serve on the advisory board for "The Call", an organization created to mobilize churches to solve the problem of children in foster care or in need of adoption.

As a financial advisor I love the opportunity real estate provides as an investment and way to make passive income. I bought my first vacation rental in 2015 in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg and decided to diversify to Destin recently. I absolutely love Destin and the white sand beaches.

I own and manage 7 total properties, 5 in Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge and 2 in Destin. Please feel free to check out all of my properties and the excellent reviews. I take great pride in providing our guest with a wonderful vacation experience.

Thank you for your interest in our property and we look forward to hosting your group soon. - 2 bedroom cabin in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg - 3 bedroom cabin in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg - 4 bedroom cabin in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg - 6 bedroom cabin in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg - 6 bedroom cabin in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg - 8 bedroom home in Destin - 9 bedroom home in Destin

Matthew White purchased this house in 2017

Why Matthew White chose Frangista Beach

I chose the property because of the intricate detail the builder went into and the location in Frangista Community! Most of the beaches get very crowded during Spring Break and Summer and offering a Private Beach to Frangista homeowners was very important.

What makes this house unique

It is located in Frangista, a private community with a stretch of private beach on Miramar Beach for the owners and guest.

Overall Nice House

  • 3 of 5

Overall house was spacious and laid out well and had a lot of amenities. Outdoor space with pool and patio excellent. Great location. Had 24 people and plenty of room. The main issue and frustration was the house was not cleaned very well. Sheets in 2 of the bedrooms were not cleaned, found sand, dirt, and food in the made up beds and blood on one of the comforters. We arrived about 1 1/2 hours early and found one of the cleaning people swimming in the pool. Probably why house wasn't that clean. Couple of other issues with broken appliance and cupboard doors were addressed and taken care of right away. Property manager Dan was helpful and courteous.

Perfect vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation was perfect because of all the space this house had. We got to enjoy the bike and the golf cart but especially the pool. Will definitely rent again for our next stay.

Big House Close to the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 families - 10 adults and our 11 adult children and everyone had a bed. In some of the larger bunks - I think they were full over full - you could have doubled up smaller kids and slept even more in the house, so plenty of room and only about 100 yards from the beach access right at the end of the road.

The kitchen is huge and we fixed dinner for 21, 4 of the seven days we were there. The grill outside is also huge so grilling chicken and steaks for our group was really easy. The pool is big and all the beds were comfortable. Although a golf cart came with the house, we never used it because we walked or used the 4 bikes. It would be nice to have a basket or some kind of cart to pull behind the bike so you could run up to the grocery store which is only about a mile or so away and be able to carry back a few bags.

The beach is really nice - white powder and the ocean looks like the Caribbean with the turquoise water. Because you have access to the private beach it was not crowded at all - plenty of room for our group to spread out. There were a couple issues we had when we first arrived but the response was very quick.

Overall we had a great stay and everyone with us agreed that we'll be back.

Great Vacation HOME!

  • 5 of 5

Super house for a big group! Loved the big dining area and plenty of room to move around in the kitchen. Any maintenance issues were taken care in a very timely manner.

The bedrooms, especially the Masters, were super spacious.

Great Property and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Destin with a large group (24) for many years. This is the first time staying in this property and probably the best one yet. We had 5 seperate families coverge on Sunset Manor for the week of July 4th and we couldn't have been happier. The house is very spacious and well equipped. We had 24 people and never felt like we were crowded. The walk to the beach is less than 2 minutes and it's private, so not nearly as crowded as what you see where the big condo and resort properties are. The bikes, golf cart, and beach chair service were just added bonuses. Caleb and his team do a great job and are very attentive if anything needs to be fixed. If you have a large group, I would highly recommned renting out the Sunset Manor! We will definitely be back!

Great place for big family reunions.

We would go back. Good place to relax and able to walk to the beach.

A few things need to be fixed. Broken cupboards, fridge shelves, pool clogged a couple times.

Overall awesome!
