About the property

5B/5B~Sleeps 20! Private pool, large backyard w/large gazebo. Very Well Stocked!

So excited! Any room with carpet is being replaced with a wood lament type product that can get wet & will look so much better. Do be done before summer~yeah! Balconies were just inspected I& A-ok! Tune ups done too.

Spring Cleaned & ready for summer! Items fixed & replaced. The housekeepers just spent the last week deep cleaning the house, getting the house, pool deck, & driveway pressure washed, AC's checked, bulbs & AC filters replaced, smoke detector batteries replaced, etc, etc. done. All just for you! Oh! And we go all new mattress covers, sheets and towels! (Updated 5/9/18)

Only 1 week left in June, and 2 in July...including the 4th of July~wow~Remember, Price Includes a 3 row golf Cart!

But 1st I'd like to address the bad reviews from earlier in last spring. All problems have been dealt with with. I have even hired on a new fabulous cleaning crew & property manager for when I'm not there. Things have been fixed, carpets steam cleaned, outdoors pressure washed, etc, etc. I want my renters to have the best experience possible and I sometimes only know things are wrong when I'm told. Updated photos to be posted in next couple days. That being said...

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.


Great quiet neighborhood. You will feel at home AND on vacation.



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 description I could think of about the house & the area...so 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.

Sun by the private pool, which is a good size with a privacy fence. There are 2 grills, 1 NEW (as of 3/2018) propane, 1 gas. There is a picnic table, umbrella, lights for at night, and a large custom gazebo with a 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 dining set seats 8 & there are stools at the bar plus a card table in the pantry for 4 more seats.

In March 2018~my contractor, housekeeper & I 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!

About Noelle Daniele

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!

Noelle Daniele purchased this house in 2012

Why Noelle Daniele chose Crystal Beach

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived to find a very welcoming property for our family's week vacation. There was plenty of room for everyone. The beach as well as plenty of restaurants, gift shops, ice cream shop, etc. are within walking distance. The owner is very responsive and attentive to all of our needs. The kids enjoyed having the pool to swim in and all of the accessories that were in the storage area. All in all it was worth what it was listed for and my family very much enjoyed our yearly family vacation all staying in the same place. Highly recommend this property!!

Nice house but owner locks thermostat out

  • 2 of 5

The house is huge and very accommodating with the amount of beds and sleeping areas. Has lots of games and towels for everyone to use without having to wash everyday. The only complaint we had was that the owner controlled the thermostat and locked it out at 73 due to saying it would freeze up. After requesting it to be turned down we were told to open the windows and let it cool it off. After contacting the property manager for added assistance, she requested the air be turned down and it was only turned to 70. Even with covers thrown off due to sweating and fans running there was no relief of the heat. Cooking in the kitchen in the morning with the thermostat at 73 was miserable. If the air unit freezes up, then it needs to be worked on. We were only wanting it to be 67 or 68 during the night and 70 during the day which is absolutely okay for a air conditioner to manage no matter what time of year. Even after sending the request for the air to be cut down only the second floor was cut down and when sending a picture of bottom floor, it was scheduled to only turn down to 70 two hours from the time we requested and the second floor was changed back to 73 resulting in more contact to get the air adjusted. It took a solid hour to get the bottom and second floor units to actually be turned down to 70, which was still too hot. Very disappointed in paying that much money to not be able to control the air and be miserable when coming in from the beach during the summer with sunburn and sweating throughout night. Will not be returning due to this inconvenience! But if these are concerns that do not bother certain people, by all means stay here.

Great Location but property is in desperate need of EVERYTHING new...

  • 2 of 5

I will start off by saying the house is in a good location and if it were maintained like other houses we have rented from year to year in Destin we would have had a great stay. However, this house is clearly not maintained as it should be and it is not managed as it should be. The house could use all new furniture, mattresses (that have mattress covers on them), new towels, linens, rugs, kitchen supplies, etc. Also, the entire inside of the house needs to be repainted in addition to new cabinets and hardware in the bathrooms. Speaking of the bathrooms, they need serious updating. Cabinets were peeling in the bathrooms and in the kitchen, towel holders were missing, and random "old" chairs were located throughout the house. Also, the air conditioning in the house was zoned I think and some zones seemed to work and others did not. As for the outdoor area.... it could be a wonderful area to hang out in if it were cleaned up and maintained. The bushes were overgrown around the pool areas and thus blocked room around the pool and a large clump of foliage covered the central part of the pool house porch making getting in and out of both doors to the pool house and using the porch difficult if not impossible. Also, there was constant debri in the pool from the overgrown foliage. There was also "grill graveyard" with various old grills that no longer worked taking up space in the pool area. There was also trash and old pots strewn everywhere around the yard. The porches around the house were not clean. There was a half built and/or broken down shed in the yard as well. Our friends rented the house next door which is owned by the same owners as the house we rented. We rented together to be close to each other as the fence between the houses opened up. However, as bad as our house was in terms of cleanliness and need of updating, the house our friends rented was worse. They had many issues which were not fixed promptly and most importantly, the clothes dryer in the house and the murky pool. Long story short the owners of these houses need to get on the ball and do some major clean up and updating of these properties. We will go back to Destin however, we will be sure to be very careful before renting from this owner again.
