Description

Experience some "down time" in this elegant, luxurious beachfront vacation home that will place your family and friends in the proverbial lap of luxury.  This newly improved three-story residence now includes five bedrooms and sits upon the shimmering sugary shoreline overlooking the emerald toned glittering gulf in prestigious Frangista Beach. This home defines luxury with regal décor, tasteful classic comfortable furnishings and modern 21st-century amenities like new flat screen TVs in almost every room. This gracious, stately rental home is designed to accommodate up to 16 fortunate guests with separate sleeping quarters on all three floors.

The first floor of Down Time features a lovely beachfront Guest Bedroom with a queen-sized bed, a full bath and a crisp, clean Bunk Room that sleeps eight. Whitewashed faux hardwood tiled flooring flows throughout providing wonderful beach flair. A queen-sized bed beside the glass balcony doors views the gorgeous gulf and faces a white credenza with a TV. The balcony allows you to enjoy upfront vivid gulf views, listen to soothing surf sounds and take a dip in a refreshing plunge pool.

The elaborately furnished main living area on the second floor includes beach-washed vinyl floors accented by soft yellow walls and a large oriental rug that provides a warm, rich feel. Triple sets of glass doors lead out to the beachside balcony that invites you to enjoy favorite drinks and dining al fresco with a large table flanked by matching Adirondack chairs. The living area's comfortable furnishings provide simultaneous views of the jeweled gulf water with a beige couch, a love seat, and an elegant striped accent chair. A sizeable wall-mounted TV provides added entertainment.  A hardwood dining table with matching chairs and bench seating offers a charming setting for family meals. The contemporary open kitchen with stainless steel appliances has three rustic wooden stools that face the bar with a sleek black granite countertop. A Guest Bedroom on this level has a king-sized bed with pleasing décor and has access to a full hall bath that doubles as a convenient powder room.

The sumptuous, spacious Master Suite has a king sized bed with a richly carved headboard that sits beside a romantic gulf front balcony and faces a wall-mounted TV. A full private luxury bath includes a long soaking tub for soothing relaxation, a separate shower, and double vanity sinks.  Another charming Guest Bedroom on this level is well appointed with a king-sized bed and an en suite bath.

This impressive Miramar Beach location is minutes away from favorite gulf front restaurants, two of which are a short beach stroll away. The Frangista Beach community pool is also close by. Ocean Reef guests enjoy reduced rates for golf, tennis or recreational beach rentals nearby at Seascape. You are also close to grocery stores, wine outlets and world-class bargain shopping at one of the nation's largest designer discount centers known as the Silver Sands Premium Outlets.

Value was outstanding.
Property located in the middle of everything and right on the beach. The views from the balcony was the best. Scenery was magnificent. Have visited Destin area for years. Best location I have ever stayed at, we will be returning to this location in the future!

FAQs

We welcome all of your questions! Most property-specific details can be answered in the AMENITIES tab, for example, "Is beach service included?", "Is there a community pool?" and "How far is the beach?". Additional answers may be found in our Rental Policies.

Still have unanswered questions? We invite you to ask below. Our vacation specialists look forward to providing you with a detailed response to help you find the best place by the beach!

Is this house located right on the beach, like you can walk out the door right onto the sand?
Jamie K - Posted: 01/29/2022

Answer:

Down Time is a great find - and yes, it's directly on the sand. Well, you do have to walk down the stairs to get to the beach. Let us know if we can help with anything else!

Does pet friendly mean you can bring a dog?
Joe F - Posted: 02/17/2022

Answer:

It sure does! For an additional fee per pet, up to two dogs (40 pounds or less) are allowed at designated pet-friendly properties.

How far is the house from the community pool?
Cecilia P - Posted: 03/16/2022

Answer:

Down Time is very near the community pool! It is located only one block away on Los Angeles St. approximately a two-minute walk away.

Is there a grill?
Julie R - Posted: 03/17/2022

Answer:

Yes - there will be an electric grill provided beside the home. The HOA prohibits use of gas and charcoal grills in Frangista Beach.

How big is the private pool?
Dan O - Posted: 03/27/2022

Answer:

The private splash pool at Down Time is 8'x5' and quite refreshing! This is the perfect place to relax and gaze out over the glistening gulf waters.
