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.

Margaret Ray purchased this house in 2015

Why Margaret Ray chose Scenic Gulf Drive Central

Recently added a spacious brick patio with string lights and seating/grill in the backyard to add to the flair. Quiet neighborhood with private pool in front.. Walk to the the beautiful uncrowded beach to spend the day with family and friends. Shops at the end of Miami for coffee, ice cream, beach supplies, pizza add to the neighborhood feel. Take a walk on Daytona to see the one room Greek church.

What makes this house unique

Pets allowed with fenced yard and terrific dog walking neighborhood. Splash pool (3-4 ft deep) in front and patio in back for relaxation and listening to birds, Frangista Beach neighborhood is unique to the Destin area. House includes umbrella/beach chair set up per day at Frangista Beach and also a beach cart for carrying other beach gear. Well stocked spacious kitchen with Keurig coffee maker to enjoy coffee on the front or back patios or at the beach.

Squealing with Excitement!

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!

Everyone enjoyed this vacay

You know it's a great place when the whole family likes it. Even the picky teens had a good time. I think the outlet mall down the road helped with that. The beach is close, the weather was great, the ocean was beautiful and we got to see lots of dolphins! We will definitely be coming back.

Perfect beach getaway for girls trip!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this wonderful beach house for a long weekend with my best girl friends and had a blast! Will definitely make this an annual trip. The house is charming and is equipped with everything you need to make gourmet dinners. The patio was the perfect place to start the day with coffee before a long beach walk on pristine beaches. Was also great for late afternoon cocktails and dinner. Great beach access close by, terrific shopping 5 minutes away at the outlet mall. Would highly recommend thie rental!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Great little place for a vacation. Clean, nice and close to the beach. We so enjoyed our stay here. The beach is beautiful all year around, but it was perfect in October. Sunny and warm during the day for swimming, but just cool enough to enjoy a campfire on the beach in the evenings. You can get the permit through the fire department. I've recommended this place to several friends now.

Awesome getaway

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed here a couple of times and the experience has been wonderful each time. It is the best of both worlds. Quiet neighborhood and a very short walk to the beach. Great location with multiple restaurants within walking distance as well as shopping (outlet mall and groceries) just minutes away. The owner is very nice and has really put a lot into making this property feel like a home away from home. I will definitely be coming back again.

What a great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We are so coming back! The house was perfect for our group of 4 (and could easily have fit more). Everything was clean and nice. There is a great little patio at the back which was perfect for morning coffee and evening drinks. We loved the small pool at the front of the house. Very convenient location for everything: the beach, restaurants, the grocery store down the street, outlet malls. Just a great place all around.
