Welcome to Frangista Pearl!

This home truly is a treasure. Located on the sugar white sands of the Gulf of Mexico, this 2500 square foot, three story home features a private elevator and amazing gulf front views. Frangista Pearl rests in the exclusive coastal community of Frangista Beach. This community off Scenic Hwy 98 is in the middle of tropical excitement with beach shops and shoreline restaurants are within walking distance. Not only is this home located right on the beach but it also has access to the private beach. So guests will be able to get to the sugar white sands of the emerald coast and away from the crowd.

Enter into the home and catch a glimpse of the queen suite with its warm colors and bright sunshine. This bedroom includes its own private bath, personal flat-screen TV, and a balcony. The balcony gives access to the beach and a 7x5 ft. splash pool. Also on this floor is a wet bar and a bunk room. The bunkroom includes 3 sets of bunks and a personal flat-screen TV.

On the second floor sunlight will greet you from the balcony entrance. The living room features plenty of comfortable seating to enjoy the sun setting in paradise. The living room also includes a large 42” flat-screen TV. On the balcony you will find outdoor seats, great for soaking up the warm summer sun accompanied by the grill. While grilling, prepare the rest of your meal in the spacious kitchen area. This kitchen includes stainless steel appliances and plenty of natural lighting. Down the hall sits a lovely queen suite with its own balcony, flat-screen TV, and shared bathroom.

Take the stairs or the personal elevator to the third floor and you will find a queen suite decorated in warm tropical colors. This room features its own bath, personal flat-screen TV, and balcony. The third floor also includes the master bedroom. This pure and elegant bedroom resembles the white sands of the beach. Enjoy the gulf breeze as it blows through the balcony entrance. This room also accesses a large master bath with jetted tub and walk-in shower. The private balcony includes lounge chairs, the perfect place to listen to the crashing waves of the Gulf of Mexico.

The neighborhood of Frangista Beach consists of mostly large homes where families come to vacation. It spans the equivalent of approximately 4 blocks. The neighborhood has a 400 yard private beach which you must have a code to access. Guests of Frangista Pearl also have access to the large community pool complete with a waterfall and restroom facilities. The pool is never too crowded because only select Frangista homes have access. This home is within walking distance of a coffee shop, deli, Dairy Queen, a beach gear shop and local favorite beach front seafood restaurants, Pompano Joe's and Whales Tale. Frangista Beach is also home to Emerald Coast Wine Cellars where you can sample and purchase wines made exclusively in Florida. A large Winn-Dixie grocery store is 1.5 miles to the east and beside it you will find the largest designer outlet mall in the Southeast, Silver Sands Premium Outlet. Frangista Beach has a rich history that began when a family from Greece built a small motel and, subsequently, a little white Synagogue (which still stands to this day). Many brides are married on the Frangista Beach and use the picturesque chapel for photographs. After visiting this neighborhood, you will understand why so many families choose to return year after year.

Fall Trip

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a week at the Frangista Pearl- weather and location were perfect! The Pearl offers stunning views of the beach/ocean on all 3 levels. Accommodations were great. The Beach Reunion team, Carrie Monroe and Jess Karlesky, are exceptional! They leave nothing to chance and provide all information/details in a timely and professional manner. Their customer service cannot be overstated. Beach Reunion will be our first choice for bookings

Girl's Trip

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a girl's trip at the Pearl and it was everything we hoped it would be!! PERFECT location and perfect house for us! Just walk out door and down a few steps and on the beach and that helped since we are "old women". So close to restaurants and stores that we could walk to many places. Had no problems with anything but management was good enough to check in with us checked in to see that all was ok..that was a nice touch. We would book this house again for future trips. Thank you Beach Reunion!!!!!

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our Family was having a family reunion, and rented multiple homes through Beach Reunion. Not only was the home amazing, their service was top notch! The home fit all 18 of us comfortably. We took full advantage of all of the decks which overlooked the beach. We also loved the little splash pool down on the first floor. We enjoyed many glasses of wine while relaxing with the jets on, over looking the beach! Our kids also enjoyed the community pool which was a good size, and only a block over.

Carrie was very helpful in recommending restaurants and setting us up with a fishing captain for our deep sea excursion. We had a blast! When we got back from fishing that day, we hit up the coffee shop just across the street. I highly recommend giving them a try!

The few times we had to call the office with questions, every person we got was extremely cheerful and helpful. Overall our stay was amazing, and we've already booked for our reunion next year! I highly recommend both Beach Reunion and the Frangista Pearl home to anyone looking for a great vacation.

Definitely a "Pearl"

  • 5 of 5

After many years of great stays in Destin we finally found our favorite! Frangista Pearl was over the top. We loved it so much , we already booked next year. The view and location is great and the interior was just like the photos on line (not always the case ). But, the best is the staff at Beach Reunion...especially Laura. We don't know the owners of course, but, they can rest assured that their home on the beach is well taken care of and a great getaway for the winter or any time. Thanks for everything!

Frangista Pearl

  • 2 of 5

Was very disappointed in the property. The pictures online were very deceiving. It was very run down looking inside and MUCH smaller than the photos made it seem. May sleep 14+ but is not suitable for that many people to just be in. The living space was so tiny! The floors were in very bad shape, blinds were broken, cabinets very worn. There was a giant cockroach in one of the upstairs rooms. Overall didn't feel very clean and was definitely a disappointment. Also says private that the what is located outside the downstairs bedroom, because that is not a pool. And the bunk room has trundles under two of the bunks that there is absolutely no room to even pull both out! There would barely be room for one!

Owner's Response: Dear Jen, We are very sorry to hear you did not thoroughly enjoy your stay in our beautiful Frangista Pearl property. As all the other 5-star reviews will show, guest normally enjoy this home very much and even re-book for their future vacations. We do apologize if the sleeping arrangements were not adequate for you. This is the first time we have had a guest complain about the bedding. This home can sleep up to 18 comfortable in beds. This home is 100% booked every Spring Break, Summer and Holidays, and we've never once had an issue before with this. We will certainly look into it and see if there are any improvements to be made.. As for the space, the square footage is advertised correctly on our website, and we do apologize if you felt deceived by this. As for the cleaning, we do take pride in the cleanliness of our homes. As stated in your contract, if you are at all dissatisfied in the condition of your home upon check in, we will immediately get a cleaning crew back to your home to re-clean. However we do have to be notified. As for the pool, the description of the home clearly states it is a "private splash pool". Again, we do apologize if this caused confusion. We take all of our guests comments very seriously, and will be looking into any improvements we could to make. Sincerely, Beach Reunion Management
