About Ocean Reef

For over thirty-five years Ocean Reef has distinguished itself as the leading vacation rental property management company on the Emerald Coast. Our current catalogue of exceptional properties spans the Gulf Coast – from Destin to Panama City Beach. Steeped in a tradition of hospitality and exemplary service, we pride ourselves on providing an unmatched vacation experience.

Why Ocean Reef chose Frangista Beach

Northwest Florida is home to two distinctly different world-class beach vacation destinations. The first is Destin – filled with excitement, family attractions, shopping, dining, fishing, vibrant nightlife and, of course, white sand beaches. The other is South Walton – home to the same breathtaking beaches but with greater focus on the preservation of nature and with intentionally less development. Miramar Beach is positioned between Destin and South Walton, making it the ideal destination to experience the best of both worlds. While the draw of its neighbors is strong, visitors of Miramar Beach may choose not to leave this oasis. Perfectly situated between the Gulf of Mexico and the Choctawhatchee Bay, fishermen and water sport enthusiasts will have plenty of options to indulge here. Off the water, guests will enjoy shopping at the nation’s largest designer outlet mall – Silver Sands Premium Outlets. In addition to Silver Sands, other premier shopping and entertainment options include Grand Boulevard and Baytowne Wharf. Fresh seafood eateries are scattered throughout Miramar Beach and the famed Scenic Gulf Drive offers several locations with exceptional beachfront dining.

Relaxing Week on the beach

  • 5 of 5

My family LOVED this vacation. There is enough room in the condo for everyone to have their own space. Everyone loved being able to walk right out to the beach. We only got into the car to go deep sea fishing and to go to the grocery. The location was perfect for teenage boys. Pizza, Ice Cream, coffee, touristy stores, and restaurants are all within a few blocks. Pompano Joe's is a family favorite and it is SO close we ate there for lunch or dinner every day. We want to go for two weeks next year!

The condo was very clean and very comfortable. There were plenty of towels for everyone and we did do laundry a few times... I loved that it is upstairs by the master suite. The kitchen is nicely stocked and over all a very comfortable, relaxing, homey condo.

The property was so pretty inside & SO close to the water! Loved it...

  • 4 of 5

Overall experience was lovely... Very nicely decorated. It did show wear but how could it not with so many people going in & out each season, and salt & sand constantly having to manage. A smoke detector battery needed changing and the maintenance people were VERY prompt in managing this issue. I highly recommend this property, very courteous people to communicate with. Very satisfying. ❤️

Don't waste your money!

  • 1 of 5

The property has not been maintained very well; they really need to some exterminating work for fleas and roaches. Don't consider the property as having a private beach as other surrounding properties are able to rent chairs and umbrellas that are so close together you have to duck under umbrellas to get to your chair--then people are still allowed to line chairs up in front of you. The splash pool has not been maintained and lights are out in the elevator--we were told that we weren't supposed to use the elevator due to liability. The outside grill was so nasty nobody would want to eat anything that had been cooked on it. If you're an early riser the fact that there aren't any curtain liners in master bedroom won't be a problem, but we didn't like much waking up at 5:00 a.m. because there was no way to block the light coming into the room--looks like blinds had once been in the room and were removed and not replaced.

Owner's Response: Vickie, thank you for staying with us. We apologize for the few issues you experienced during your stay. All of our properties are on quarterly pest control, however, palmetto bugs are very common in this area and do get into the house from time to time. This typically happens when heavy rains occur or doors are left open. The property was also tested for fleas and the results came back negative. We do apologize for the beach being too crowed, but July is the busiest month of the year for vacationers in our area. I would advise maybe coming at a different time if at all possible. We will also be sure to replace the pool lights and grill. I will be sure to mention hanging curtains or blinds in the master bedroom to the owner to better help the lighting situation. Thank you for bring that to our attention. We hope that these items do not deter you from staying with us again in the future as we would be happy to have you. Warm regards.
