• Bedroom 3: King bed w/ensuite bath
• Living Room: 55" Roku HDTV, loveseat, Big Joe™οΈ Super Bean Bag, chairs, french doors to deck

• Deck: 4-seat cafe table, egg-shaped swing chair, hammock, conversation set, large off-set umbrella.
• Ground level: seating area with table, hammock, fire pit, shower/hose, storage shed with beach gear, and parking for 3 vehicles
When you arrive at the recently remodeled Mojito Grande, you will walk up the stairs to the deck entrance. There, you'll find a comfortable seating area with a large offset umbrella and palm trees in the background. There is a nearby comfortable cotton hammock for those lazy time naps - you can swing the umbrella over it to avoid getting funky tan lines when you doze off. A selection of plants and palm trees remind you that you are in a tropical beach area. The sheer white curtains can add a level of privacy, if desired, but the breeze can be divine!
 
The entrance to our Caribbean-style beach home uses a smart lock for a contactless check-in process (no office to visit for keys) and takes you right into the living room. There is a wall-mounted 55" 4K HDTV with Roku streaming and lots of free content; or bring your logins (streaming or cable) to access the paywall services like Netflix, HBO+, Amazon Prime, Apple TV+, and others. Seating abounds and includes a Big Joe supersized bean bag with memory foam that can sit 2-3 in comfort. Just off the living room is the dining area and fully equipped kitchen with new stainless steel appliances, 2 coffee machines, a full-size pantry for your food, and many convenience features.
 
Step through the french doors onto the front deck where you'll find it framed by billowy sheer curtains. A 4-seat cafe table is there for dining al-fresco. Nearby is a hanging seat, perfect for reading in the fresh beach air. Being elevated brings a nice breeze to the deck that just doesn't happen at the ground level.
 
From the living room, a trip down the short hall will bring you to a bedroom with twin beds in a "floor bunk". The lower bunk is near the floor for easy entrance and exit and there are stairs, not a ladder, to the upper bunk which is much lower than traditional bunks -- great for smaller children.
 
Across the hall is a bathroom with a tub/shower combination that sports a dual-head shower. We provide a dispenser with high-quality shampoo, conditioner, and body soap made from natural ingredients and without animal testing.
 
We then have a full laundry with iron and ironing board. We provide some detergent pods and such for your convenience -- enough to start your stay.
 
The next bedroom has a queen bed. We use a very popular brand of hybrid memory foam mattress that we have received many compliments about.
 
At the end of the hall is a Master bedroom. It has a large king bed with a memory foam mattress and an ensuite bathroom with shower.
 
We have a sitting area, with a table and chairs, and a hammock under the home for those times you want to be outside, but still under cover. In the back of the home is a fire pit area for those cooler evenings. 
Note: Mojito Grande is a no smoking property. Not just inside -- the whole property.
 
— BEACH —
 
The beach access point is about 1 block west near the intersection of Hollywood St and Scenic Gulf Road. It is a private access point only for the Frangista Beach community. We have paced it off at about 150 steps. 
 
You will need to show proof of the exact address where you are staying (welcome message or receipt) and will be issued wrist bands for your entire stay. They are very strict about this. We will email a copy of your receipt, with the specific information they want, just before your arrival so you have it handy.
 
Once on the beach you have access to the area South of the Erosion Control Line (plainly marked). You may also purchase beach service from the licensed vendor at fees they set. This information and contact info is in the digital guidebook. 
 
 — LOCATION —
 
Located in Miramar Beach, this cozy 3 BDRM/2BA cottage is one of the original homes in the popular community known as Frangista Beach, only 200 steps from the white sand and emerald water by way of a private beach access point.
 
Mojito Grande's location is fairly walkable. Alvin's Island is just a few minutes walk west and the well-known Pompano Joe's (fresh Gulf-caught seafood) is just a bit beyond. A short walk eastward will quickly get you to Emerald Coast Wine Cellars where they offer daily tastings, Bad Ass Coffee for a great coffee experience, Dairy Queen, Paradise Found beach supply shop, and the excellent Italian eatery, Pascalli Kitchen (try their homemade pizza rolls)!
 
We are conveniently located where you can drive your car or golf cart to Winn Dixie, Skippers Seafood, Chick-Fil-A, Surf Hut, CVS, and the Silver Sands Outlets in 4-6 minutes. We have easy access to Holiday Rd, which is a quick route to US98 W to Destin Commons, the Harbor area, and all else that Destin offers!

If we have not been alerted by a guest that something has run out, you may not find it to be present.
 
— BOOKING INFORMATION —
 
Once the reservation has been made, we send an email confirmation with a link and instructions to finalize your booking. If you do not see it in your Inbox within an hour, check your "junk mail" folder. You *must* complete these steps within 24 hours or your reservation may be cancelled.
A cleaning fee of up to $250 per stay is added to your total at checkout.
Mid-stay cleans are available -- Contact us for pricing.
A refundable security deposit of $300 is required by placing a hold on the card you provide. The hold is released after departure and the inspection is done.
The Renter of record must:
    -   be at least 25 yrs of age;
    -   provide the payment and means of deposit;
    -   be present during entire stay (no third-party bookings);
    -   send a copy of a valid government-issued ID;

Our cancellation policy is: Bookings cancelled at least 30 days before the start of the stay will receive a full refund of monies paid less the 3% credit card processing cost.
We regret that we are unable to accommodate requests for early arrival or late checkout.
Our pricing is updated frequently to reflect local rental trends, occupancy, demand, and other factors. As those things change, the rental prices can rise or fall accordingly. Prices are not locked in until payment is collected.
 
**The renter agreement, contact info, and credit card for the deposit must be completed within 24 hours or your reservation may be cancelled.**
 
— TOP RULES —
 
We enjoy hosting and sharing our home with others and have been doing it for several years. We've received many 5-star reviews, letters expressing appreciation, and have a large number of repeat guests.
 
But, we do have a few firm rules that cannot be broken and, if they are, will result in immediate termination of access to the property with no refunds. These are:
 
1.  We do not permit any animals under any circumstances.
2.  Events and parties are strictly prohibited.
3.  No smoking of any kind anywhere on the property. Cleaning and remediation fees will be charged and start at $325.
4.  You cannot exceed the number of people on your booking at any time.
5.  Drugs or other illegal activities are not welcome and will be reported.
6.  Third-party bookings are not accepted. The name on the reservation must be the same as on the credit card and on the renter agreement.
 
We ****STRONGLY**** recommend you consider obtaining Travel Insurance for your trip, especially if you are concerned about possible cancellation due to health emergencies, government policies, inclement weather, or other reasons.
You will be presented with an opportunity to purchase a standard policy or a CFAR (cancel for any reason) policy as a convenience to our guests. These are offered by our service provider -- we are not a party to that transaction. You can also acquire coverage from many online sources, but make sure you are clear on what they do and do not cover.
 
Some policies have time limits on when you can buy them, especially the CFAR (cancel for any reason) policies. We recommend making your decision as soon as possible so you are able to get the policy you desire. There may be deadlines on when coverage can be bought.
 
We cover all of our bookings for accidental damage that may occur, such as broken dishes, torn linens, stained towels or furniture, damage to fixtures, etc. This is "no-hassle coverage" that protects against breakage and other accidental damage up to $500 at no added cost to the guest. However, guests are required to report the damage *during* the stay to be eligible. Damage discovered afterwards is not eligible for coverage and will be charged to the security deposit or card on file.
We use interior and exterior noise monitoring devices to ensure that we, or our guests, do not violate local or state noise ordinances and the prohibition of parties and events. If the noise level exceeds acceptable levels, you will be contacted. They also help to protect our guests against potential inaccurate reports.
 
There may be video cameras on the property, in the front of the home, covering the parking area and entrance to help us verify compliance and provide an opportunity to monitor the exterior of the property.
 
Remember, you are not staying in a hotel, you are staying in our home. That comes with a lot of advantages and amenities hotels cannot offer. Please respect it and our neighbors.  While there is no "front desk" , our Housekeeping/Maintenance team is just a phone call away and we are available during normal business hours by email, text, or message.
 
☞ We like to know that our guests have read the whole listing. Please mention "Frangista Beach Rocks!" in your inquiry to confirm this for us.

Cancellation Policy: Ninety-seven percent (97.00%) of the total booking charges will be refunded if the cancellation is made more than 30 days prior to the arrival date of the reservation. For cancellations made within 30 days prior to the arrival date, no refund will be issued.

Retired from a long and worthwhile career in technology, government, and executive management involving significant domestic and International travel (Chuck).

Retired with extensive customer service and hospitality experience and skills as a former Disney cast member (Vicki).

Together, we decided to become hosts and manage our own short-term rental. Our first venture was in Gatlinburg, Tennessee - gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It was a success.

We added a few more in the same area and created 'Our Smoky Mountain Rentals' to handle the listings. Then we decided to add a beach property and settled on Destin, FL area! Not long after we were able to offer a handful of listings in Destin and Miramar Beach as 'Silver Sands Rentals'.

We have since consolidated all of our listings under our new brand, 'Remarkable Vacation Rentals'.

We have enjoyed every moment of our hosting journey. The delight that comes with knowing that a group of friends, or a family, has made lasting memories in one of our homes is always a thrill, no matter how often it happens. Our guests write such wonder reviews and messages to us describing their experiences and how much they enjoyed their stays. As a result, we get a lot of repeat guests too!

Look over our listings and join the hundreds of families and groups who have called one of our Remarkable Vacation Rentals "home" for their visit.
