Please call Craig (I'm the Owner) anytime day or evening if you have any questions about our family's vacation home or if you would like to reserve a week! Please know that I am always very happy to speak with prospective renters personally and answer any questions that you might have! Please note that we do NOT rent to college or high school spring break groups!

The home boasts 4,300 total sq feet of luxury living space including 900 sq feet of covered balconies, and is located in Destin's popular Frangista Beach area, a tranquil seaside community that offers the emerald water and sugar white sand beaches of the Gulf at her doorstep along with the carefree life style and relaxing charm that only southern hospitality can offer! Down By The Sea offers wonderful views of the Gulf of Mexico from the 2nd & 3rd floors and is located only approx. 100 yards from the beach!!!

One of our 3 King Suites is located on the 1st Floor and is perfect for our patrons with limited mobility that would like to avoid the stairs. There there are also 2 large bedrooms rooms on the 2nd Floor that each have 2 bunk bed sets (i.e. 4 single beds per each room) plus a dedicated bathroom located just outside these bedrooms in the hall. Additionally, there is also a brand new Queen sleeper sofa located in the living room.

Fantastic For Families

  • 5 of 5
This property was ideal for our family. We took our two children and their families on this trip. Each family had their own floor for privacy. Our grandchildren are three and under. Everything we needed for the kids was there waiting for us. Anyone with little ones knows how much easier this makes it. Safety features for the kids were also well thought out. The house looked just as pictured and was spotless and well maintained, as were the grounds. The private beach was a block's walk at the most. The pool was great, especially for the baby. The shallow end almost always had at least a little shade, which enabled her to spend lots of time in the pool without sunburning. The owners provided complete information about the house and area restaurants and attractions. That saved us time, energy, and simplified our decisions since we were unfamiliar with the area. We hope to stay there again in the future.

Excellent Vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
My family had a wonderful vacation at Down By The Sea. We didn't have to pack or rent all of the baby gear since everything we needed for our baby and toddler were already in the home: that made it so easy for us! When our little ones tired of the beach and were ready for naps it was great having the pool right in the yard to enjoy! The house was clean, well-stocked, comfortable and close to all we wanted to do! We have stayed in hotels, condos and other homes in the area, and we were the most comfortable here. The owners were very accommodating, took the time to answer all our questions and easy to work with. We received our security deposit back right away too! We loved being able to walk to Pompano Joes Restaurant for lunch; it is one of our favorites! Cant wait to go back.

great location

  • 4 of 5
The house was in a great location. It was a short walk to the beach and centrally located in Destin. Everything was a short drive. We loved that it easily accommodated our large family, which consisted of 8 adults and 4 children under the age of 6. We especially loved the crib for our 9 month old and all of the other baby items at the house.
What could use some improvement was the household items. The pots and pans were old and teflon was coming off of a few of them. We had a full house of people & we had a difficult time finding enough serving bowls, utensils, & wine glasses when we all ate together. The silverware was old and some of the knives were broken. The washer & dryer were old and took a very long time to dry clothes.

The other issue we had was with the cleaning that was done before we arrived. The cleaning crew did not do a thorough job. The high chair was very dirty with food & appeared that it had not been cleaned. The towels were in the dryer. There kitchen was not cleaned well - the microwave was dirty and shelves & drawers needed to be cleaned. The pool was smaller than we expected, but it was adequate for our needs. In the contract, it said someone would be by to clean the pool & they did not come.

We had a really great vacation, so it's hard to write negatives about the house. The owners were very nice & we would recommend the house. It was in a nice area & is able to accommodate large families w/ small children. The house would definitely benefit from updated appliances & kitchen items.
