Absolutely one of the best rental values you will find! This beautiful 4,500 sf 3-story home is located on the prestigious Frangista Beach, in the much sought after Emerald Waters Village, a gated community. The home is just a half block or a 2-minute stroll to a gated, private beach entrance. This property sits on one of the best sugar-white beaches in the Northwest Florida panhandle. Perfectly situated with action-packed Destin on one side and the relaxing communities of Sandestin and 30A on the other. There is easy access to anything and everything from restaurants, outlet shopping, fishing excursions, award-winning golf courses or strolling through galleries of very well-known artists.

The house offers plenty of space to enjoy company or some separate quiet time. The massive decks on all three floors are unsurpassed. One of the largest, top floor, 180-degree decks in the area, will have you enjoying the incredible views of the ocean, twice weekly fireworks displays to incredible sunsets/sunrises. The views cannot be beaten.
The 1st-floor "lockout" apt is a 1/1, w full kitchen, living room, large bedroom, walk-in closet and a private shower, and full-size laundry room. The unit has its own private entrance from the outside carport and covered patio, as well as access to the upstairs from the inside. Just outside the entrance are a seating area, an informal outdoor, dining table, lounge chairs for sunbathing and gas bbq grill. There is a small backyard for your dogs to enjoy.
The 2nd-floor is the main living area. With a very well equipped kitchen stocked with enough utensils to create a feast, holiday meals or host a party with service up to 24 people, huge dining room, and serving area, & 2 bedrooms. We also have a high-speed ice machine that produces plenty of ice to keep up with your guests and/or fill those ice chests for your outings.
The master bedroom has a king size bed, a window seat/youth bed, a large closet and also features a luxury 3-head, executive shower to pamper yourselves with. On the opposite side of the 2nd floor, there is a guest room with a queen size bed, a window seat/youth bed and full bathroom with shower (accessed both from the bedroom and living room.) Just down the hall is a laundry area with an oversized washer and dryer.
The formal living room with a natural gas fireplace is ideal for family get-togethers, football night or lounging by the fire with a book. Two full ceiling to floor shelves are packed with books, puzzles and games for the rare times there might be inclement weather or simply you’re wanting to have a ‘lazy day”. All bedrooms and living areas have TV’s and DVD players and a large library of adult and children’s movies can be found on the 2nd-floor living room shelves and in the end-tables in the living area on the 3rd floor.
Also on the 2nd floor is the formal dining room. There's something romantic about a formal dining room. Perhaps it's the thought of having a room completely devoted to eating and entertaining, or the idea of enjoying a sit-down dinner with family and friends. The dining area has a beautiful 11-foot glass dining table will seat 10-12 people. The adjoining kitchen will also seat 5 people around the kitchen bar (or serve as the "kid area".) Both the living and dining rooms have decks leading outside, (front and rear, opposite each other) for nights you might want to let the warm beach breezes inside.
Enjoy the 3rd-floor game room with a pool table, Marshall Bluetooth speakers (w/ Operation manual attached to the wall directly next to the speaker) , dart board, Xbox, Wii game, bar and mini fridge. It features a separate TV sitting area with queen sleeper sofa & plenty of room for board and card games.

We are a pet-friendly property. We also try to accommodate smokers with covered decks, with seating on each floor (and outside each bedroom for that matter!) Each area has receptacles to extinguish cigars/cigarettes. We ask that all smoking be kept to these areas to be considerate of our non-smoking guests that cannot tolerate cigarette smoke as well as protect our property.
We provide beach chairs, rolling coolers, small ice chests, umbrellas, fishing poles, numerous types of beach toys, sandbag/corn-hole game and a beach wagon for easy transportation to the beach are available for your use. (Past generous guests have left misc. items such as boogie boards, etc. you never know what you will find in the garage!) The YOLO board is also available for use upon request. We also have a high chair, portable crib, and stroller available. We do provide extra linens, pillows, beach towels, beach toys and at least 4 queen size, self-inflating air mattresses.
The home is in a private gated community. One of the two community pools is right across the street just 100 feet from the front door.
