5B/5B~Sleeps 20! Private pool, large backyard w/large gazebo. Very Well Stocked!

The housekeepers just spent the last week deep cleaning the house, getting the house, pool deck, & driveway pressure washed, AC's checked, bulbs & AC filters replaced, smoke detector batteries replaced, etc, etc. done. All just for you! Oh! And we go all new mattress covers, sheets and towels! (Updated 11/11/17)

Now Booking Fall!

But 1st I'd like to address the bad reviews from earlier in the spring. All problems have been dealt with with. I have even hired on a new fabulous cleaning crew & property manager for when I'm not there. Things have been fixed, carpets steam cleaned, outdoors pressure washed, etc, etc. I want my renters to have the best experience possible and I sometimes only know things are wrong when I'm told. Updated photos to be posted in next couple days. That being said...

Invite other families, or extended family and split the cost! And if you book my house next door (also sleeps 20) you can open the fence (20') in between to share the yards! VRBO #838166. I have another house 2 miles away that sleeps 18 that's Very Spacious, gated communitie, and awesome clubhouse amenities!~VRBO #888579.


Great quiet neighborhood. You will feel at home AND on vacation.



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.

Now for the Good Stuff!

Everything you could want to know about this house is on this site! I have given just about every description I could think of about the house & the area...so please check it all out. At the bottom, I'll tell you what changes we've made recently.

We are excited to offer a Pottery Barn look with a Caribbean flair. You will love the house and the location! Not only is Destin beautiful, our house is central to everything! including just a 2-3 minute walk to the white sugar sand beach with emerald blue waters of the Gulf.

An open floor plan says casual vacation, spacious & private, 5 bedrooms, 3 hangout areas to spread out, and large backyard with good size pool and room for lawn games.

pullout sofa in living room

2nd floor-2 masters: 1 w/new king pillow top, & 1 w/king, both w/private balconies

The pool house has 2 new queen pillow tops plus a sleeper sofa, loveseat, and bathroom w/shower & a kitchenette.

Sun by the private pool, which is a good size with a privacy fence. There are 2 grills, 1 NEW (as of 1/2016) propane, 1 gas. There is a picnic table, umbrella, lights for at night, and a large custom gazebo with a long bench. Many chairs around the deck for tanning-don't forget sunscreen!

There is a beach closet full of chairs, an umbrella, and cooler plus there is an outside shower for after the beach.

Stainless steel kitchen appliances & there is more than enough dishes & cups, plus everything you could need to cook for a crowd.

The furnishes have all been recently updated, as have all the beddings.

The living room has a new sleeper sofa, love seat, & 4 chairs, the dining set seats 8 & there are stools at the bar plus a card table in the pantry for 4 more seats.

In March 2016~my contractor, housekeeper & I worked to make my house even better, based on reviews & suggestions I've gotten & making needed repairs. This is done every spring. I guarantee you will not be unhappy with Flamingo Landing!

About Noelle Daniele

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 whole family to get together!

Noelle Daniele purchased this House in 2012

Why Noelle Daniele chose Destin

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 tons of Florida feeling photos, bedding, and such around the house.

What makes this House unique

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 pool...so 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.

Property Owner and Property Manager very easy to work with! If there was anything we needed we were able to reach quickly! If we ever go back to Destin look into staying at Pelican Landing again!!

                                                                  Mary S.

                                                                  I will start off by saying the house is in a good location and if it were maintained like other houses we have rented from year to year in Destin we would have had a great stay. However, this house is clearly not maintained as it should be and it is not managed as it should be. The house could use all new furniture, mattresses (that have mattress covers on them), new towels, linens, rugs, kitchen supplies, etc. Also, the entire inside of the house needs to be repainted in addition to new cabinets and hardware in the bathrooms. Speaking of the bathrooms, they need serious updating. Cabinets were peeling in the bathrooms and in the kitchen, towel holders were missing, and random "old" chairs were located throughout the house. Also, the air conditioning in the house was zoned I think and some zones seemed to work and others did not. As for the outdoor area.... it could be a wonderful area to hang out in if it were cleaned up and maintained. The bushes were overgrown around the pool areas and thus blocked room around the pool and a large clump of foliage covered the central part of the pool house porch making getting in and out of both doors to the pool house and using the porch difficult if not impossible. Also, there was constant debri in the pool from the overgrown foliage. There was also "grill graveyard" with various old grills that no longer worked taking up space in the pool area. There was also trash and old pots strewn everywhere around the yard. The porches around the house were not clean. There was a half built and/or broken down shed in the yard as well. Our friends rented the house next door which is owned by the same owners as the house we rented. We rented together to be close to each other as the fence between the houses opened up. However, as bad as our house was in terms of cleanliness and need of updating, the house our friends rented was worse. They had many issues which were not fixed promptly and most importantly, the clothes dryer in the house and the murky pool. Long story short the owners of these houses need to get on the ball and do some major clean up and updating of these properties. We will go back to Destin however, we will be sure to be very careful before renting from this owner again.

                                                                  Needs a deep clean and updates

                                                                  Carrie S.

                                                                  Please do yourself a favor and read the reviews prior to renting. This house is in a great location and after talking to the owner about issues with the cable, internet, and outdoor umbrella, she did fix the issues. However, the house looked and felt dirty. It is in desperate need of a good cleaning and serious updating. For what we paid to rent, I would expect the house to at least be clean. The kitchen chairs have holes in the cushions. The air vents and bedroom fans are covered in an inch of dust. None of the exhaust fans work. The kitchen was lacking many things, including dish towels and washcloths. All the cabinet veneers are peeling in the kitchen and some of the bathrooms. The carpet was filthy and covered in stains. After stripping the beds before we left, I found the mattress I slept on all week had no protector and was covered in urine stains. I have never been so disgusted with a rental. We have been coming to Destin for many years and we will be back. One thing is for sure, I will never rent from these owners again!
