About Frank Novak

My name is Frank Novak. As a retired NFL coach I was first exposed to Destin in 2005 by the recommendation of fellow coaches on our staff. Repeat visits over the next 5 years only confirmed my commitment to someday having my own place. A unique place that features unmatched white sand beaches, emerald water, all within a few peaceful miles of the amenities you would want in a vacation community. We look forward to sharing our paradise with you.

Frank Novak purchased this condo in 2010

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the month of February 2018 at this condo. It is just as it looks on the pictures. The accommodations are very comfortable and the condo is very clean. I can't think of one thing that we would have needed . Frank is very accessible and will immediately answer any questions that you have. He is very concerned that your needs are being met.

The weather was beautiful while we were there. Shops and stores are easily accessible in the area. The beaches are beautiful and the area is excellent for a walking or bike riding. The whole coastline can be explored in a day trip by car. We will definitely be back to this condo. It is in a great location. Thank you Frank for sharing your condo with us. Kim and Wayne

Another wonderful vacation in Florida

  • 5 of 5

I would like to thank again to Mr. Frank for using his beautiful condo for another vacation last month. Everything in the condo was perfect and the kids love the most the big tv and nice and warm swimming pool. Mr. Frank is always helpful with any issue we might have during our stay. It does feel like a home away from your home. Thank you from whole our family.
