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.

Today is the first week of March 2015~my contractor & I have been working everyday to make my house even better, based on reviews & suggestions I've gotten & making needed repairs. All decks have been retained & look awesome! All the outside doors I had painted a bright turquoise blue & LOVE it! New sheets for all the beds. New housekeeper! Got a card table w/4 chairs for more seating. The beach shed has been cleaned out & there are new chairs, a new umbrella, and a new cooler. I could go on & on...but I guarantee, you will not be unhappy with Flamingo Landing!

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 hole family to get together!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything went well after the email issue we had at first. Everyone enjoyed their stay and said the house was great. The kids loved the pool. The beach chairs and umbrellas came in handy; We were about to buy some that day but your email came in just in time.

WONDERFUL house and location!!!

  • 5 of 5
I I searched for many many days to fins a perfect place for a last minute trip. I had not been to Destin before, so I didn't know anything about the different beaches/areas.

This house is in the most desireable area, in my opinion. We rented a golf cart and did a lot of exlploring. The street is so pretty, and it's a quiet neighborhood setting. The walk to the beach is about 4 houses down, then across the street...super easy. We did choose to walk about an extra block to the next beach access where the public beach is much bigger. All have hoses to wash feet and the Shirah access has bathrooms!

We had 5 children, from age 3-13. The teens stayed in the guest house...perfect for them! And they felt very safe, so did the parents. The pool is gated from the main house, as well as the pool house, so it was great for small kids. We didn't know if we needed a private pool but it was AWESOME!!! So nice to let the kids swim whenever they wanted. Grilling out by the pool was really great too :)

We would love the windows or doors open in our bedrooms and the ocean breeze came through so nicely!

I can't say enough about this home, the location, and the owner. All top notch.

We WILL be back!

Excellent beach getaway! Great for families!!

The property was immaculately clean and all appliances were in excellent condition. House is next to shopping center and a stone toss away from beach. Private pool with gas grill was a plus-- great for family cookouts. Owner was a pleasure to work with! Would do it all again!! 5/5 stars ~War Eagle =)

Great Place to Stay, Play and Relax

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Destin, FL and we enjoyed it to the fullest. It was also our first time renting a home and the experience was great, the owner provided great information about the houseand area and answered all our concerns.

We had a group of 4 families (3 seniors 7 adults and 4 kids) and everyone loved the house. The house is perfect. The house is within walking distance to shopping centers and restaurant. We loved having a private pool and the super short walk to the beach. The house is well kept and the yard looked great. Everything was there, from a rolling pin in the kitchen to beach chairs and umbrellas for the beach. There was plenty of room downstairs and in the backyard for our whole group to be together. Everyone liked the backyard layout; pool, pool toys, 2 grills and a cabana what more could we ask for?

Definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay.

Recommended for: Any age group, tourists without a car, large groups or families with teenagers and young children.

Just as expected

  • 5 of 5
Our family just returned from a week at this home where we were celebrating our mother's 70th birthday. Everything in the home was just as described and as pictured. It was well maintained and provided a fabulous place for this long overdue reunion. There was plenty of room to gather as a family and also to sneak away to our private balconies for some quiet time when needed. When we first arrived we thought there was a problem with the refrigerator. We spoke with the owners and housekeeping staff several times in an attempt to resolve this. They were very responsive and concerned about coming to a quick resolution. In the end, the refrigerator just needed some time to cool. It was a relief to know that if it had been more than that, they would have taken care of it immediately and had a backup plan in place. It was so hard to leave. This was our first trip to Destin and I have a feeling it won't be our last based on this experience.

From the Owner

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 none cheese Floda feeling photos, bedding, and such around the house.

From the Owner

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.
