Great family rental in Frangista Beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for Spring Break along with two other families (6 adults, 6 teens). Everyone slept comfortably. The bunk room does not have a bathroom, but we worked around it. Kitchen was well equipped. The hot tub was a great feature for chilly nights. There is an outdoor chest with four folding beach chairs, boogie boards, and beach toys. Parking for two vehicles, but we were able to squeeze three. The view and location are unbeatable. We would definitely stay there again.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a beautiful home in a great location look no further!

The property is well maintained and Marsha answered all of our "pre arrival" questions quickly. The beach was steps away and when we weren't lounging in the sun there was plenty to do just minutes away.

Our family of 14 had a wonderful time and we can't wait to come back for another visit!

Destin, FL beach house

  • 4 of 5

Had a very pleasurable stay at this property. It was as stated in the VRBO and the property manager Marsha Adamson was very accommodating and helpful. The only complaint I have, is I was unaware of a $200 fee charged for using VRBO as the connecting agent. The fee may have been stated in the VRBO agreement. I did not realize until I received the charge to my CC. Otherwise I and my family had a great time at Destin.

Great place to stay right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The townhouse was great and was complete with everything you would need to stay for a stay at the beach. Marsha was amazing to work with and I will work with her in the future.

Plenty of room for a large group to stay

A truly great get-away!

  • 5 of 5

Our large family thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful beach house. Everything was perfect, exactly as it was represented to be, and the owners/managers were welcoming, helpful, and truly friendly.

I would recommend this house to anyone, but not next year as we return!
