About Margaret Ray

I live in Atlanta with my 2 children and have loved the Frangista Beach community over the 20+ years i have been coming to the area for vacation and i finally purchased this cute house in this 'old Florida style' neighborhood in early 2015. I enjoy morning walks/runs on the bike paths and stopping to view the one room greek chapel down the street that gave this neighborhood its name.

Convenient location/ close to beach/complimentary on beach chairs

  • 5 of 5

Nice back yard for my two small dogs and no thru roads to walk them. Nice to have umbrella and chairs set up at private beach so we didn't have to carry ours. Pool was enclosed and private from the road. House was super clean and had all the amenities. Convenient to everything and a very quiet neighborhood. We would stay again at this Frangista location. Owner and rental agent was very good to work with.

Best Birthday Celebration Ever!

  • 5 of 5

I went to Florida to celebrate my 50th birthday and stayed in the cutest house ever. This house is perfect for a family vacation or a getaway for 2! It has everything you need for cooking and bedding. The private pool was very nice and refreshing!! The walk to the beach was very short and they have everything you need to help carry all the essentials and build a sand castle. The backyard was very nice and cozy. Plenty of space to entertain and cookout and decorated with the cutest things. The neighborhood is also very nice and quiet on the end where this house is located. I would definitely recommend this house and will be back for sure!!

A couple of problems with the toilets but overall the stay was nice!

  • 4 of 5

We have visited three times and intend to return. The often refilling toilets due to old "flappers" are making them run too frequently. More costs for you.

Cozy and well furnished home close to beach

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing. It's cute and cozy. The kitchen was stocked with an abundance of dishes, cups, cookware, and utensils. My family rents homes/condos several times a year for vacation...this kitchen was easily the best equipped of any house I've rented.

The house is very close to the beach...about a 5 minute walk down a small residential street. The house comes with an umbrella and two chairs provided for you at the beach.

The backyard is awesome for sitting outside with friends or family and either grilling some food or enjoying a few drinks amongst the adults.

We were very happy with the house and would surely recommend it to any of our friends heading to Destin/Miramar beach.

Squealing with Excitement!

  • 5 of 5

FABULOUS week at the beach with the girls! What a wonderful beach retreat this sweet cottage was. 1 - 2 short blocks off the beach. Perfect splash pool to cool down combined with adorably appointed bedrooms and living space. This home has a peaceful and private backyard with plenty of space for kids or fur babies. Plenty of walkable restaurants and shopping. Private beach access and even a private umbrella and chairs are included. Just a great, great set up. Could not have been any better! Thank you for the special touches!!! I'll be back!
