At Mojito Grande, walk up the stairs and be greeted by a comfortable outdoor seating area with a large offset umbrella set amongst a selection of palm trees and plants. The nearby hammock calls to you to try it, perfect for those lazy time naps.
The island-style beach home uses a smart lock for a contactless check-in and takes you right into the living room. You'll immediately note the bright colors, the wall-mounted 55" 4K HDTV, and the Big Joe supersized bean bag with memory foam which sits 2-3 people in comfort. French doors give you a view of the deck. Just off the living room is the dining area with another set of French doors to the deck, a fully-equipped kitchen with new stainless steel appliances, open shelving, 2 coffee machines (drip and k-cup), a full-size pantry for your food, and many convenience features.
Step through either set of french doors onto the front deck. Framed by billowy curtains, there is a 4-seat cafe table for dining al-fresco and a hanging egg-chair, perfect for reading in the fresh beach breezes.
Step back into the living room and start down the short hall. On the left is a bedroom with twin beds in a "floor bunk" with stairs (no ladder) -- great for smaller children. A wall-mounted HDTV will provide entertainment.
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. See our digital guidebook for details.
Next down the hall is the full laundry with iron and ironing board. We provide some detergent pods, bleach, softener, and such for your convenience.
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. A wall-mounted HDTV is also provided. There is ample clothes storage in the closet and dresser.
At the end of the hall, on the right, is the Master bedroom. It has a large king bed with a memory foam mattress, wall-mounted Roku TV, and an ensuite bathroom with dual-head shower. Closet space, dresser, and chest provide plenty of storage for clothing.
Back outside, and underneath the home, we have a sitting area with a table, chairs, and a hammock. A corn hole set is provided for playtime. In the back of the home is a fire pit area with seating for those cooler evenings.
Note: Mojito Grande is a no smoking property.
— BEACH —
The private beach access point is 1 block west, near the intersection of Hollywood St and Scenic Gulf Road. We have paced it off at about 150 steps.
At the access point, you will need to show proof of the exact address where you are staying and will be issued wrist bands for your entire stay. They are very strict about this. We will email a special copy of your receipt, with the specific information they want, just before your arrival so you will have it handy in your inbox.
Once on the beach you have access to the area South of the Erosion Control Line (plainly marked). You may also purchase beach services (chairs, umbrellas, wave runners, etc) from the licensed vendor at fees they set. This information and contact info is in the digital guidebook.
— LOCATION —
Located in Miramar Beach, our beach cottage is one of the original homes in the popular community of Frangista Beach. The location is very convenient!
Alvin's Island is just 2 blocks west and the well-known Pompano Joe's (fresh Gulf-caught seafood) is just a bit beyond. 2 blocks eastward will quickly get you to Emerald Coast Wine Cellars,, Bad Ass Coffee for a great coffee experience, Dairy Queen, Paradise Found beach shop, and the excellent Italian eatery, Pascalli Kitchen (try their homemade pizza rolls)!
You can drive your car or golf cart to Winn Dixie for groceries, Chick-Fil-A, Surf Hut Restaurant, CVS, and the Silver Sands Outlets in 4-7 minutes. We also have very easy access to Holiday Rd, which is a quick route to US98 W. At this intersection is a CVS, the nearby beer/wine/spirits store, Tom Thumb gas/convenience store. US98W is the road to Destin Commons, Henderson State Park, the Harbor area, and all else that Destin offers!
