Description

New for 2022: Enjoy a new garage game room that includes a living area with a large flatscreen TV, a foosball table, a pool table, a bar area, and even a secret passage bookshelf leading into the first-floor lock out!

This seven-bedroom vacation home can become your ultimate family compound for a wonderful beach reunion since it can sleep up to 25 happy gulf goers. It has an excellent Destin location in highly sought after and prestigious Frangista Beach - with less than a two-minute walk from the sugary white sand shore. The gated beach access for this community is just one block away! Frangista Beach also features a lovely, exclusively gated, and seasonally heated community pool in a lush tropically landscaped oasis that is right down the street.   

Gulf Star features double living areas and kitchens with a separate first-floor apartment that has a private entrance. These quarters include two of the home's seven bedrooms, which provide a split plan luxury vacation home that's perfect for large families or groups of friends. These marvelous extra guest suites include an open kitchen and living room with a sleeper sofa. Double sets of glass doors lead out to a covered patio. The kitchen has brushed stainless steel and white appliances, mottled granite countertops along with a dining table for three. Both Guest Bedrooms include full en suite baths and are well-appointed. One of the bedrooms has a queen-sized bed, while the other is a Bunk Room with a twin-over-full bed. A garage game room is provided for a friendly competitive game of pool or foosball. This room also includes a large wall-mounted flatscreen TV, a sitting area, a half bath powder room, and a custom-built bar for serving savory treats and drinks. An exterior staircase leads from these separate guest quarters to the main house.

The primary residence features a spacious kitchen, dining, and living area for relaxing in the evening with family and friends. A latte toned leather couch, a chocolate-colored leather armchair, and a patterned accent chair face a 60" TV mounted above a long decorative credenza. A wall of windows brightens this space and has glass doors leading out to a covered balcony deck. Two sets of white rectangular dining tables in this same room seat six each. Five more may be seated nearby on leather-topped stools beside the sleek dark granite bar facing the state of the art kitchen with everything you need to create a fun family feast.

Down the hall are two charming Guest Bedrooms with queen-sized beds, one of which has an en suite bath while the other has access to a full hall bath.  The Master Bedroom with a king-sized bed and sitting area with sleeper sofas, a Guest Bedroom with another king-sized bed, and a colorful Bunk Room that sleeps eight are on the top floor with luxury private baths. Upper-level balconies provide a lovely breeze, and all bedrooms have TVs.

This convenient Frangista Beach location is near popular gulf front restaurants with friendly beach bars like Pompano Joe's and The Whale's Tail, which are within walking distance. Grocery stores, wine outlets, and bargain shopping at one of the nation's largest discount designer centers, known as the Silver Sands Premium Outlets, is close by. Ocean Reef Resorts guests receive reduced rates at nearby Seascape for championship golf, tennis, and water recreational rentals as well as at Big Kahuna's Waterpark in Destin. Fun festivals, dining, drinking, and shopping venues may be found minutes away at the enchanting Village of Baytowne Wharf and Grand Boulevard in Sandestin.

Enjoy planning your next big beach reunion here at Gulf Star for an amazing family vacation you will never forget!

Spring Break
My family enjoyed our stay. The house was in a great location for our family. Close to the beach and close to the community pool. The management was quick to respond to emails and have someone check out any issues.

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!

How many square feet is the house?
Meghan T - Posted: 01/13/2022

Answer:

Gulf Star has 3640 Sq. Ft. of heated & cooled living space. It features a spacious floor plan and feels even bigger than it is!

Would we be allowed a 4 pound 7 year old well trained Shih Tzu?
Paula R - Posted: 03/12/2022

Answer:

We love our dogs here at Ocean Reef, however - Gulf Star is a non-pet-friendly home.  If you are unable to board your pup, you may want to consider one of these Pet Friendly Rentals.

Is the coffee maker traditional ground coffee/filter or a pod style?
Tara J - Posted: 07/03/2022

Answer:

Keurig coffee makers are provided in all Ocean Reef properties to help get your beach day started. Don't forget your favorite K-Cups!
