Destin/Miramar beach is ideally situated for all the family. The famous white beach with crystal clear ocean, fishing and golf on the doorstep, restaurants too many to mention, shop till you drop.

For the kids their is the Track, bowling, bicycles, swimming, water park and much much more. Nature Trial and lakeside walks

There are also numerous, cultural activities through the Mattie Kelly Foundation, Seaside, and the Northwest College.

Fantastic shopping. High end, individual store and designer outlets.

Golf players could come for a week and play a championship course everyday. ASK AND DISCOUNT ROUNDS ARE AVAILABLE.

Fishing is available from Destin Harbour, whether you hire your own boat, take an individual charter, or share a trip and make friends.

Going further afield you can visit Gallery Night in Pensacola, this one Friday each month. Whilst there visit the Apache Fort in Fort Pickens. Drive back down the National Seashore, amazing.

Restaurants there ar far too many for me to mention all, but here are my favourites.

Cuvee Bistro, half price drinks and entrees before 9-00, where the 'IN CROWD' meet. Great musice from 9-00 Wednesday to Saturday

Ocean Club. Happy hour before 6. Buy one get one free. Ladies night Wednesday. Music Wednesday, Friday and Saturday

The iconic AJ's music every night.Snacks available on the deck overlooking the harbour. Full meals underneath. Where the locals and trendy set meet.

Ruth Chris. Expensive but great food . Have a phenomenal saxophonist.

Pizza, pasta, chinese, Indian

Year Purchased: 2004

About: Hi, Live in the UK but had a vacation rental in Destin for 27 years. Been around the world and no other beach community compares. I'm am dedicated to all my guests having the very best vacation they can possibly have. All proceeds from my rental are reinvested into the cottage. I travel to Destin 6 times a year to quality control the cottage, along with professional property management. YOUR RESERVATION and MONEY are SECURE I strive for my guests to have their best ever vacation and aim to respond within one hour. My daughter lives on Miramar Beach and is there to help, just ask. Her number is above the front door of the cottage

Why Frangista Beach, Destin, FL, USA:
What can you say about Destin?? Impeccably maintained quaint cottage with soaring ceilings. Has charm an individuality with that coastal look. All appliances updated regularly. The beach, emerald waters, golf, fishing,culture, restaurants and shopping to die for. All in a small world environment which is safe and secure. IF YOU NEED ANYTHING SPECIFICALLY, JUST ASK AND I'LL DO MY BEST TO ACCOMODATE

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Year round weather, may be cold days, but there's always something to do. An environment that offers something for everyone. When it's cold, with a north wind, the south facing porch is a tranquil haven. Watch the kids enjoy their vacation on the shallow beach. Let the big kids play golf or fish. Mum do what you want. Don't forget his credit card. ENJOY and please come back
