About the area

The neighborhood of Frangista Beach consists of mostly large homes where families come to vacation. It spans the equivalent of approximately 4 blocks. The neighborhood has a 400 yard private beach which you must have a code to access. This home is within walking distance of a coffee shop, deli, Dairy Queen, a beach gear shop and local favorite beach front seafood restaurants, Pompano Joe's and Whales Tale. Frangista Beach is also home to Emerald Coast Wine Cellars where you can sample and purchase wines made exclusively in Florida. A large Winn-Dixie grocery store is 1.5 miles to the east and beside it you will find the largest designer outlet mall in the Southeast, Silver Sands Premium Outlet. Frangista Beach has a rich history that began when a family from Greece built a small motel and, subsequently, a little white Synagogue (which still stands to this day). Many brides are married on the Frangista Beach and use the picturesque chapel for photographs. After visiting this neighborhood, you will understand why so many families choose to return year after year.

“Great property, spacious for our family needs”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2016

Overall it was a great property-- spacious, convenient, and perfect for our big family/friends get together. We loved having the pool in the backyard for the little ones, and it was so important the the backyard pool was gated. It was a very short walk to the beach-- having private beach access was definitely a big plus. Kitchen well stocked with pots/pans, utensils, etc. Having 3 refrigerators, 2 freezers, 2 sets of washers/dryers, and 2 dishwashers was perfect for our large group. Only complaint I would have was the place could have been cleaned better. The floors were dirty when we arrived. I'm guessing because the previous group left earlier that morning, there wasn't enough time to sweep and mop the house?

“Adequate Parking!!!”

Reviewed 18 May 2016

We have rented several houses as we come every year for a family vacation. The Calypso home was by far the best house for parking the 6 cars we had. Overall the house was nice. The kids enjoyed the pool and the icemaker was certainly a plus since everyone kept going in and out of the refrigerator. My sister stated the Master bedroom mattress was not comfortable. And the kids had to bring their own video game since one was not provided in the home. I home is large and spacious and could accommodate all 23 of us. We had a fantastic time and would rent this home again.

Owner's reply: Dear Ms Jackson, Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our beautiful Calypso home! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed it. Thank you for letting us know about the master bedroom mattress. We hope you can stay with us again soon! Sincerely, Beach Reunion Management

“Loved It, What we epected and more!!”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2014

I want to thank Laura, my Beach Reunion agent, for being there to answer all my questions and making our vacation decision easy. The Calypso property was the perfect size for the number of people in our group, 21 plus 2 small dogs, enough space for everyone to have fun together and also to have their own privacy. The house is beautiful, nice decor and everything was clean and most of all the beds were clean and very comfy. The teenagers loved the superb internet service. All the needed cookware, dishes, and appliances were available, which I loved. We even found beach accessories in the storage room outside in the front of the house which were not not listed in the websites amenities description (boogie boards, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, etc., nice surprise) extra items we didn't have to go purchase. The pool and the hot tub was nice, the fact that there is light in the pool made it even better, it was used up to 1am every night. The pool furniture was really nice as well. As described, the beach is about a 2 min walk from the property with access beach access. (You do have to cross a street; strip, which has crosswalks and sidewalks. There was also 4 beach chairs and 2 umbrellas set up on the beach for the property. That was another surprise because the desription stated the set up was thru Aug 10th, yes they were utilized :-). For some added fun my son rented one of the scooter cars, 2 seater, and we took turns riding the strip. Next time we rent several. With this being our first time renting a house, we had a BLAST. We will most definitely be back next year!! It was my husband and I anniversary, with the help of Laura we were able to share our day with family and friends
