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.

Awesome family summer vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first big summer vacation and our first time to Destin. We loved everything about this place! The location is perfect and the views were great too! This is a small complex which we like so much better than big high rise condos. The unit is very clean and has everything you could possibly need. We absolutely loved having the washer and dryer in our own unit! There was plenty of room for our family of 5 (3 kids ages 7, 5, & 2). The older two loved the bunk bed in the hallway! Frank is a wonderful owner who will answer any questions and give you any advice and recommendations on the area and things to do there. He is very reliable and easy to get ahold of if needed. We absolutely loved this place and would highly recommend this rental! We can't wait to return!!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent our anniversary getaway in Frank's condo. We have stayed at Grand Caribbean, both East and West many times, but this was the first time in this unit. Everything was perfect, from the personal calls from the owner to make sure everything was good to the very clean unit that was stocked with everything we needed. I would highly recommend staying here. The views of the gulf were amazing and the condo is located close to all our favorite places in Destin. Thank you Frank! We'll definitely return 😊

Immaculate condo + Beautiful white sand beaches.

  • 5 of 5

I believe the owner of the condo and the condo itself deserves a rating above five stars!

First, I need to thank Frank for his hospitality and genuine kindness. The condo on the Home Away website far exceeded our expectations. The condo was immaculate, very well maintained and had all of the extra amenities to make our stay comfortable.The balcony view of the Gulf is gorgeous. The pool and hot tub were a hit with our 5 year old grandchildren. The beach access is right across the street, which was a plus for a family that has little ones. During our visit, Frank recommended the Fishing Rodeo and Harbor Walk. Our grandchildren loved it! We also enjoyed the National Aviation Museum, fishing and dining at several local restaurants. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone.

Awesome Vacation Spot!!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our first trip to Destin. It is absolutely beautiful. Our room was just across the street from the beautiful white sandy beach & crystal blue water. Our room had everything we needed. It was very clean and well kept. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Very roomy for myself, my husband and our 3 kids. It was a pleasure to rent from Frank. He was a great help in guiding us as this was our first trip to Destin. He checked on us to make sure we had everything we needed and was comfortable. He genuinely wanted us to have an awesome vacation. We would definitely stay at this condo again. Thanks Frank for everything!!

Amazing Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful condo. The condo comes completely stocked with everything we needed for the week. It was very clean when we arrived and very beautifully decorated. My family and I definitely enjoyed our stay. The location is super convenient because all you do is cross the street and the beach was there. We spent all morning at the beach, we would head back to the condo to enjoy a lunch and take a quick nap on the balcony. The view was amazing and Frank (the owner) was super attentive sending us e-mails and calling to check up on us to see if we were OK. We will definitely be returning next year and every year after that.

Thank you Frank for letting us rent your beautiful condo and for being so nice and friendly.

This condo is perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just retuned from our third summer staying at this condo. Can t say enough about the place. It has everything you need and then some. The kitchen is fully stocked, the bedroom has a king sized bed, beach umbrellas and chairs are available for your use. Location is ideal, directly across the beach, very close to several restaurants and shopping destinations. Finally the owner of this condo (Frank) is absolutely wonderful! He always calls to ensure everything's as it should be (which it always is). He is great to work with! Would highly recommend this condo. Thanks Frank, you are the best!
