4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 10

If property is unavailable for desired dates, please contact us for other potential rentals. We have over 50 in the 30a/Destin area.

Emerald Flamingo is located in the exclusive community of Watersound West, on 30A, between Seagrove and Seacrest. The home is a short 3 minute bike ride (4 NEW bikes included) or 10 minute walk to the beach! The community pool (heated part of the year) is a leisurely 5 minute stroll from your doorstep.

Brand new bike path to the beach!! Newly built bridge over inlet water making the walk to the beach even more beautiful!

The main floor opens into a foyer like no other with its own payphone! Turn right and you will enter the king master bedroom with a private bath with a huge custom shower and its own flat screen TV. As you leave the master bedroom and walk down the hall you will find the laundry room on the left that is equipped with a full size washer and dryer. The hallway then opens up into an entertaining space that flows effortlessly into the gathering room, gourmet kitchen and dining area. Off the living area you will find the neatest screened-in porch at the beach! The porch has string lighting overhead to set the ambiance for the outdoor setting area that even has its own flat screen TV. Additionally, there is a half bath on this level for entertaining convenience and bedroom privacy.

The second floor starts by opening into an open loft room that has two twin beds. Due to new HOA regulations, this area cannot be counted as a bedroom. This floor is also host to three additional bedrooms including two kings and bunk room that has a twin over twin bunk with a trundle twin underneath. The bunk room also has a Playstation 4 for the kiddos!

The first king bedroom has its own private bath with custom tile shower. There is also a full bathroom in the hall across from the bunks and just down the hall from the other king room.

This home is ideal for families, multiple families or a couple just wanting to get away from it all. The house has flat screens in every room and has wireless internet.

We have four beach bikes for you to enjoy while you stay with us. This home is prepared to entertain in every situation – there is something for everyone.

Reviewer Comments:

We absolutely loved this home! We had our two grown daughters and one of their significant other with us. We all had private space. We have stayed in multiple homes on 30A including WaterColor, WaterSound East, and Seaside. This home was the absolute best! There was more room than we expected. It is beautifully decorated. I loved the collection of antique memorabilia all over the house. The pay phone was just adorable! If the owner ever wants to sell this home, please let me know! Access to the beach was so easy and a beautiful bike ride on the boardwalk. We will definitively be back! We've found our new favorite home at the beach! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!

A nice change of pace

  • 5 of 5

Being from a totally different part of the country and having never visited the Gulf, we enjoyed this trip. Weren't really sure what to expect since we only visited this area based on a friends recommendation but we really did like it. We enjoyed how this home was laid out and how this community was pretty close to everything. The beach was nice and not overcrowded. Beach and pool are the community pool are private so I liked that. I have no complaints about my trip and hope to reach out again when we venture down south again in a year or two.

Good for a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Loved the area that this home is in. Was very relaxing for my family to be able to walk to the beach or hop in the pool. Also the pool is fantastic! Pretty huge bonus for us to stay here because our children like to swim in both a pool and ocean when the option is available. Over all would stay here again. Not a single complaint
