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.

Great House for large family
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!
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.

Great House for large family
Our family has been going to Florida for our vacation for several years. We usually stay in condos. This year we decided to try a house. Flamingo Landing was perfect for our large family. Each family had their own bedroom and bathroom. The pool was the perfect touch to our stay. The kids enjoyed it so much we had a hard time getting them to the beach. The only draw back was the beach but we quickly learned a short walk to the second public beach access was worth the short walk. It had showers and bathrooms. The outdoor was perfect for grilling and eating pool side. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us for the week.
Great House, Terrific Location
We had 3 families (6 adults and 10 kids) stay at Flamingo Landing and had a terrific time. This is our third different house in Destin and this one was terrific. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep and lots of space for people to spread out- you definitely did not feel cramped.
The outdoor area and location were perfect especially for children and for adults to watch them. Located about a block away is an awesome park with playground equipment suitable for kids 2-12 and a basketball court that you can actually see from the house. The beach is a close walk as you are about a block from the road nearest the ocean, so it is really a 2- 2.5 block walk to the actual sand.
Really, this house is a great fit for 3 families (enough parking for 3 cars as well). A few other things of note: lots of beach "things" provided, good outdoor spaces, nice sound system hooked up from guest house to outdoors (that is compatible with smart phones and iPods), and Noelle was terrific to work with. Whenever I had questions either at the place or prior to arrival, she was good with email and texting.
Overall I would highly recommend this place and could see coming back to this same house.
My family of 11 adults and 6 children had a WONDERFUL time during our Thanksgiving stay. Each couple/family had their own bedroom and bathroom area, and the space was superb! The kitchen was equipped with everything you could need, and the furnishing were modern and more than comfortable. There was plenty of beach chairs and toys! The pool heated wonderfully, and the outdoor lounging space was cozy and spacious. Noelle was accessible if we ever had a question, and was helpful in every way possible! We will CERTAINLY be back!
This was our 5th year to rent a place in Destin so we aren't exactly rookies. The house, pool house and yard was dirty and in disrepair: blinds missing and broken, pool furniture trashed, filthy carpets, unwashed bathroom rugs, splashes on the kitchen walls, light bulbs out, light fixture cover hanging, extension cord across high traffic area, etc. When we reached out the owners, who are acting as their own property managers, we were accused of trying to scam them when asked for some of our money back. They did eventually return some of our money to us but it was a bummer - family vacation and all that going back and forth - stressful. And, just another tidbit, if you're a family/group with lots of coffee drinkers bring your own pot. This house is equipped with a 1 cup Keurig. Ugh!
great home and great location!
We had an amazing time. Home accommodated all 12 of us perfectly. 4 adults and 8 children. We had everything we needed and owner was great to work with. Would definitely return next year!
From the Owner

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 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.”
