Pink Flamingo Cottage –
This home is located in Dune Allen Beach. The gateway to 30A, Dune Allen Beach is the most western community positioned along the famed Scenic Drive. With an unpretentious coastal lifestyle, visitors of Dune Allen will enjoy spending time outdoors, on and off the beach. Of course Dune Allen Beach offers the same pristine white sand found elsewhere in Northwest Florida, but this quaint community also hosts a state park, nature trails, and several rare coastal dune lakes. Dune Allen’s convenient location puts the excitement of Destin and nearby South Walton only moments away
A large wraparound porch deck with a custom bar takes full advantage of these views where you may leisurely lounge with friends, take a nap in a hammock or enjoy cocktails. The laid back ambiance of Pink Flamingo Cottages is accentuated by a long lap pool. The beautiful South Walton beach is conveniently located within easy walking distance.
This home is delightfully appointed complete with pink flamingo sculptures, potted palms and colorful decorative arts completed in a tropical motif. The main cream tiled living area off the open kitchen has two seating areas with large plush double couch set ups that may also be used as Sleeper Sofas for extra guests. A big wide screen TV for evening entertainment or that “must see” game sits suspended in a corner near a wall of windows that allows you to enjoy the gorgeous outdoor views simultaneously. Two dining tables may accommodate most guests but the exterior open sun deck and covered porch on the lake beckons with multiple tables and seating as well. The three bedrooms are comfortably furnished in tasteful, colorful styles and each one has access to a full bathroom.

Loved the location, pool, hot tub, water, deck outside very desirable, staff super -- would return in a heartbeat. Highly recommended and would give 5 stars.
The house was wonderful with a close walk to the beach and great views from all around. Some of the decorations are a bit much. Don't expect the pool to be ready and don't expect much from the rental company. We had issues that were never addressed and phone calls never returned. They were who made our experience subpar. Besides this the house was great. Fully stocked kitchen, plenty of space, and a lot to do in surrounding areas.
We spent a week here over the 4th of July this summer! I must say, after a month of searching for just the right property my hard work paid off! This home features 2 drive ways, which was a huge plus, since we drove two cars. Walking up to the bright pink front door I immediately felt my vacation begin! The home is beautifully decorated with bright and airy colors throughout. Each bedroom had new flat screen tvs! The appliances in this home are top of the line including a front load washer/dryer, side by side fridge, double ovens, ceramic top range, and a huge grill on the deck. The kitchen was fully stocked with dinnerware (both for adults and cute plastic plates for kids), all the pots and pans you needed for cooking, crockpots, cookie sheets, coffee maker, and toaster! This home has EVERYTHING! Two full bathrooms, a hall way toilet, and shower in the laundry room! My kids LOVED the outside showers (yes 2 separate stalls) great for washing off sand before entering the home! The beds were very comfortable, with top of the line linens and amazing pillows!
The location of this home is great if you want a true Florida relaxing vacation! Lake front views for sunsets, 800 feet walk to the non-crowed beach of Dune Allen, non busy street for kids to ride bikes, and local neighbors who walked by and introduced themselves! We felt so at home in this neighborhood!
Now, the real reason we rented this home... THE OUTSIDE LIVING AREA WAS IMMACULATE! The wrap around deck has 2 bars, a hammock for 2, a huge grill, picnic table, high table eating areas, lawn chairs for days, umbrellas for
shade, and fans to keep you cool! The pool area is just as amazing! It hosts 2 outdoor showers, a generous size lap pool (4feet-6feet deep) a waterfall hot tub (both of which change color at night) more lawn chairs then you will ever need, a cute little blue swing, pool toys and floats, and a separate lil fence enclosed sand area great for little kids to play in!
I can not say anything bad about this home! If I had the $ I would purchase this lil gem in a minute! My kids loved it (ages 18-5) and we loved it! The slow paced atomosphere of Santa Rosa Beach is great for a true relaxing vacation away from the hustle of Destin! Immaculate home, great vacation, and unforgettable memories made! Thanks Pink Flamingo!!! We will be back!!
I have used VRBO a good bit but have never written a review. Primarily because I've always had a good experience, with nothing that stood out as a negative that I felt like I needed to let others know about. Let me start with the positive. This house is in a GREAT location, with even shorter walk to the beach than it looks like in the picture! Its position on the lake gave us great opportunities to observe wildlife that we don't normally see on the beach. Also, its position at the end of a cul de sac makes it a low traffic road, which was also great with our young children. The rental agency also left little craft kids for our kids, which was a kind touch.
Ok, the negatives. We pulled up and there were faded plastic flamingos all over the yard. It was just bizarre and made the house look rundown. Then, we walked in the door and were overwhelmed by a smell. The best way I can describe it is like a public bathroom smell...My husband, trying to be positive, said "They must have JUST mopped!" It did smell like (sickly) sweet cleaning products, but all weekend the smell never faded. This could be a simple issue of needing to change cleaning products, but it had the overall effect of making a house that LOOKED clean, feel dirty to me.
Also, the cabinets are made of MDF, which is no big deal!, except that they've gotten wet. So now most of the cabinets throughout the house look warped and peeling away.
So, while I really hate being negative, I felt the need to share. It is a great price on a home in great location, so if you aren't particular about house upkeep, then it could still be a great spot for your family!
