"We rented the Pink Flamingo for 3 weeks in January. The house has an open floor plan. You enter into the dining area (after the foyer), which opens to the living room to the left (more spacious than the pictures make it look and has sliding doors out to the pool), and the kitchen straight ahead. The kitchen is separated from the living room by a high counter. There is a small kitchen table, and many pots and pans, plates and silverware, wine glasses and 16 oz cups. Much of the cookware has seen better days, and some needed a good scrubbing on the outside to remove grease. There were not any cocktail size glasses or small cups (suitable for children.)
The master suite is off the dining room and has doors that open to the screened-in pool. The suite is very spacious, with a king-size bed, walk in closet (which housed a highchair, extra bed, pack & play, iron, and ironing board.) A nice vanity is built in, and the bathroom has a large shower and 2 sinks.
There are 2 twin bedded rooms off the foyer. One has a day bed with extra bed underneath.
The queen bedded-room is down the hall, which connects the garage to the dining room. That bedroom has no windows which open, but there is a door direct to outside. We were instructed not to open it. There is a private bathroom with a large shower which is handicapped accessible. We had a problem with the toilet, which eventually got fixed. The bed is comfortable for one person, but should be replaced for a couple. It sinks in the middle.
The washer & dryer are in a closet in the hallway.
We paid for the pool to be heated, and that was wonderful. The pool was cleaned every week. There are many towels (beach and regular,) as well as pool and beach toys.
The house is located in a quiet neighborhood (other than the occasional siren from the fire station nearby.) It could have been cleaner. It was superficially clean, but when I went to open some windows (our weather was perfect for letting in some fresh air), the middle of the window (the check rail) was absolutely filthy. After the toilet was fixed, I was cleaning up and noticed that the floor was dirty in the corners and behind the toilet.
The garage is big enough for 2 cars, but you would need to collapse the table. The driveway easily fit 4 cars.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay very much. With a few improvements, this would be a five star review."
