About the Property

5B/5B~Sleeps 20! Private pool, cabana, short walk to beach, centrally located

Savings for 2016 & 17!
It's still beautiful down here! Highs in the '80's, lows in the 70's...perfect! And it's off season so little traffic, & much less expensive!
Book for 2017 by Dec and still get 2016 prices!
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~VRBO #888579.
Great quiet neighborhood. You will feel at home AND on vacation. (Updated 10/21/16)
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 disciption I could think of about the house & the 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.

1st floor-1 king & 1 queen bed, separate bath w/shower,
pullout sofa in living room

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

3rd floor-queen w/private balcony, seperate bath w/shower, plus a lounge are w/a new leather daybed w/trundle
All balconies have chairs & tables.
3rd floor hang out on the spacious deck with 2 love seats, 8 chairs, and 2 tables that open towards the sofas.

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 1/2015) propane, 1 gas. There is a picnic table, umbrella, lights for at night, and a large custom gazebo with 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 dinning set seats 8 & there are stools at the bar plus a card table in the pantry for 4 more seats.

If you need more room or the dates you need are not available here, I own the house next door. Checkout VRBO listing #838166 Pelican Landing...also sleeps 20.

Today is the second week of March 2016~my contractor, housekeeper & I have 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!

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 whole family to get together!

Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach, Destin, FL, USA:
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.

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.
