The person whose name the house is rented under must be 25. For every 3-4 people under 25 there must be an adult. We do not allow exceptions as this is not a good neighborhood for 'spring breakers'. Thank you for your understanding.

Today is the first week of March 2015~my contractor & I have been working everyday to make my house even better, based on reviews & suggestions I've gotten & making needed repairs. All decks have been retained & look awesome! All the outside doors I had painted a bright turquoise blue & LOVE it! New sheets for all the beds. New housekeeper! Got a card table w/4 chairs for more seating. The beach shed has been cleaned out & there are new chairs, a new umbrella, and a new cooler. I could go on & on...but I guarantee, you will not be unhappy with Flamingo Landing!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My husband and I grew up in Florida and raised our 3 teenagers there until just a few years ago. The beaches alway called out to us to come back. We were pleasantly surprised at just how beautiful the Northwest coast of Florida is compared to the Northeast! We were coming back so often we gave in and bought a second home. A few months later we decided to by a rental property for when we had family come to visit. Now you have a place for your hole family to get together!

Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach:
This house just has such a Florida feel to it that we feel in love with it the first time we walked through it! Bright colored walls in every room. And we've added none cheese Floda feeling photos, bedding, and such around the house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love that each room has it's own balcony and the huge deck on the 3rd floor (which I have put ample comfy seating on) over looking the normal size many rentals have tiny pools! And it's so nice to have the seperate pool house to either put the crazy teenagers in or the grandparents. Oh yeah, and the yard is pretty big, so you don't feel like the neighbors are right on top of you, and you can actually play yard games in. And it's not far from the beach! Just a short walk.
