Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 8 wonderful days at the Flip Flop Cottage in the Villages of Crystal Beach. The same group of 8 guys on our 23rd consecutive year of golf vacation simply had the best time ever. What seems like your own private 5 Star resort is 90 feet from your porch. This spacious house had every amenity you could think of. But most important of all, Cheryl, Rich and Sandy were far and away the most professional, friendly and courteous group we have ever dealt with in over 20 years. Upon our arrival we had several minor issues that were addressed within an hour! Talk about Customer Service! We have booked our golf vacation homes for many years on VRBO and without question, our stay at Flip Flop Cottage was the most pleasant, worry-free vacation EVER! Minutes from the beach, golf, shopping and night life!!!!!!! What an incredible value for this fantastic property. See you guys next year!

Family Get Together

  • 5 of 5

Flip Flop Cottage was an absolutely perfect house for our family get-together. It fit the needs of our 4 families (total of 17 people) perfectly. The kitchen was one of the best stocked kitchens I have seen and was spacious enough for a couple of us to work in there together without stepping on each other's toes! The 3rd floor was a perfect hang out for the kids, while the adults had plenty of room in the living room downstairs to visit and relax. The short walk to the beach was perfect and the complimentary trolley turned out to be a great alternative as well. Cheryl and Pete took such great care of us prior to our visit as we were making arrangements as well as during our stay. The entire family LOVED the house and look forward to a return visit.

KY's Spring Break 2014

  • 5 of 5

We spent KY's Spring Break at the Flip Flop House in the Villages of Crystal Beach. It is a quaint gated community, providing a nice safe/secure feel to your vacation and great for all ages. The Flip Flop house is wonderfully laid out so adults can visit, while the kids are in their own space having fun. It is located by pool and the view from the balconies at sunset is breath taking. It is a little bit of a walk to the beach, but a trolley is available, and you dont' want to miss time at the beach! This home is clean, comfortable and provides space for everyone. We utilized DESTINCOMFORTS.COM as the management group, and their team were all so wonderful to work with, Stephanie, Cheryl and Richard were very attentive to our needs. (We go to Destin yearly, and this was by far our best experience utilizing a management group!) The staff at Villages of Crystal Beach are friendly and will make your stay a wonderful experience. Will we be back---most definitely, and this is our ideal location!

Wonderful even in the winter time

  • 5 of 5

Flip FLop Cottage was better than we had hoped for. Very clean and comfortable. It was a bit chilly but the house was warm and inviting. Loved the pool view and the hot tub was nice. It was an easy walk to the beach and the location was great for shopping and dining (which we did a lot of!) We hope to be back soon.

Great location in Destin!!! Just a few blocks to the amazing white sand beaches, movies and restaurants. There is something for everyone in Destin! Take a day to enjoy Big Kahunas water park, go kart racing, a fishing museum, a state park, or more! Destin has it all! Destin Commons has World class shopping, restaurants and Rave movies, just across Hwy 98. Several Golf Courses within 1-3 miles. Silver Sands outlet mall is not to be missed and be sure to visit the quaint area of Baytown Warf in Sandestin for tons of fun for kids and the adults! Spend some time in HarborWalk Village for shopping, nightlife, dolphin cruises, restaurants and world class fishing. Rent a jet ski or pontoon and cruise over to Crab Island where you can anchor down, mingle with other boaters, and have lunch from one of the floating snack bars. At night, enjoy one of the free fireworks shows at Destin Commons, Harborwalk Village and The Village of Baytowne Warf. This house is minutes from it all.
